Golden West College's 2013-14 theater season offers something for every taste, from the chilling promise of a totalitarian future to what has been hailed as the funniest farce ever written. The chiller leads off the GWC parade. It's "1984" - a year long past but far in the future when George Orwell first visualized it in 1949 and wrote this eerie drama of one man's quest for individual identity in a world that might have existed had the Nazis emerged victorious in World War II. It's a time of intellectual repression, with Big Brother watching ominously over the citizens.

Probably the toughest part of staging a farcical comedy such as Golden West College's "Don't Dress for Dinner," at least on opening night, is holding for laughs without disrupting the required frantic pace of the play. The laughs do come thick and fast in this uproarious production, often at the expense of the next line of dialogue, but this deficiency should be remedied as the show closes its brief engagement this weekend and the cast has familiarized itself with the frequency and volume of audience response.

Forty-three years ago, John Lennon penned a lyric that has become a staple on the radio and countless bumper stickers and T-shirts: "Imagine all the people living life in peace. " This Friday, Golden West College will host its 2014 Peace Conference, but simple imagining isn't high on the agenda. Instead, the eighth annual event focuses on pragmatic steps toward a more humane world, with seminars on corporate responsibility, restorative justice, women's rights, entrepreneurship and other topics.

In forging a three-game win streak over the past 10 days, a run that had taken Ocean View to a share of first place in the Golden West League baseball standings, the Seahawks played with a focused purpose and didn't let little nuances bother them. Friday at Gibbs Field, the Seahawks got away from that mentality against visiting Orange. Ocean View fell behind early against the Panthers, rallied but came up a run shy, in a 4-3 loss. The Seahawks had runners in scoring position throughout, but couldn't sustain any type of big rally.

If Edward Van Ornum's father were given an option between attending a party or cutting off his hand, he'd probably ask, "Which hand?" Growing up, Van Ornum, of Newport Beach, found that he similarly had little social life. He'd go to school, followed by work and then return home. The pattern would be repeated the next day. Deciding he didn't want to become a hermit, he picked up dance. In the more than three decades since, he's mastered the waltz, foxtrot, cha cha, samba and hustle, and eventually became a teacher, at studios in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.

There was plenty riding on the line Saturday, namely, the future of its season, for the Golden West College football team. The Rustlers passed that test with flying colors, and their 30-6 win in the regular-season finale earned the program two milestones. First, the victory was the ninth of the season for the Rustlers, a new school record for most wins in a regular season. The previous record had been eight wins set by the 1977 team. No Golden West team has won 10 games in a season but the Rustlers will get a shot at that mark when they travel to Riverside Community College Saturday to face Riverside at 6 p.m. in the Southern California Bowl.

As the final seconds ticked away to end Thursday's Golden West League football game between Ocean View and Santa Ana, Ocean View football coach Luis Nunez gave a thumbs-up, turned and shouted, "good job," back at his players and coaching staff on the Seahawks' sideline, then headed toward midfield to exchange post-game handshakes with the Saints. Nunez jumped the gun a bit, though, as Santa Ana, trailing by two touchdowns, called a timeout. You can't blame Nunez for his enthusiasm, as his team was about to sew up its first victory of the season.
