Vinita Voogd was shopping one day at Kragen-O'Reilly Auto Parts when a rack full of merchandise caught her eye. She promptly, in turn, caught the eye of the cashier, who watched her piling gaskets onto the counter and figured that Voogd owned a dozen or more cars. Voogd, though, didn't need the parts for vehicles. She wanted them instead to make a print. The Indian-born artist has spent the last three decades affixing everyday items to plates and coating them with paint to stamp multiple copies — and she found herself explaining that in line at Kragen-O'Reilly.

"Doubt," according to Tom Amen, who is directing the Pulitzer Prize-winning play opening at Golden West College on Feb. 25, is "a beautifully balanced drama that draws its power not from its clarity, but from its ambiguity. " John Patrick Shanley, whose probing prose earned him a Tony Award as well as the Pulitzer six years ago, poses a number of psychological issues in his tale of a Bronx school principal who accuses a charismatic priest of having improper relations with a young male student.

Local theater groups have recently announced their schedules of productions for the 2010-11 season, but one forward-thinking organization already has its to-do list nailed down for 2011-12. That would be Golden West College, whose longtime director, Tom Amen, will be off chasing Herman Melville's great white whale once his production of "Doubt," now in rehearsal, is finished. Golden West has released its lineup of four productions for the season that begins next fall, a couple of which rank among the all-time greats.

In the coming months, KOCE-TV will move to Costa Mesa, change its name and become the new full-service PBS station for most of Southern California. And that means finding a new home for the cat. The station, which has operated at Golden West College since 1972, adopted a feline two years ago when rats began invading its studio. The cat, named Koce (pronounced "COH-see"), took care of the rat problem quickly but still lives there full time, in part because the crew got attached to her. "Now she's a part of the family," said news director Mike Taylor.

College and district officials were joined by veterans old and young on the college's quad for an opening ceremony as the sun drifted behind a building.
