Every year right around this time I begin to suffer from a little something I like to call “fall envy.” It usually starts with phone calls from friends on the East Coast who taunt me with stories of apple picking, drinking mulled wine cider and leaf peeping in the countryside. As a native Southern Californian, I have grown accustomed to the unrelenting bragging others have when it comes to seasons outside of summer or spring. But with this, I’ve also learned how to supplement the subtler seasons with props that help me get in the spirit, even when it’s 75 degrees in the middle of October.

Mike Sciacca The first football rifled through the air at Ocean View High Monday, not to mention the first hit. It was the same that day at Huntington Beach and Marina, too.

Dave White smiled ever so slightly as he perused the latest prep football rankings Wednesday, then gave a slight shake of his head as to defy his grin from a few moments earlier. There it was, in print: his Edison High Chargers were voted the No. 2 team in the latest county poll. Still further down the page were the CIF Southern Section rankings, which had unbeaten Edison (3-0) tabbed as the seventh-rated team in Division I. White, in his 14th year as the school's head coach, has had his teams there before, but is more amused by the latest rankings, if anything else.

Fountain Valley coach John Shipp calls it the start of a new season. In many ways, this weekend’s prep football schedule is just that for the local teams. The 2008 campaign may have begun eight weeks ago in late August, but this week it begins anew with the opening of league play. This is the time of the season where teams battle it out for league championships and jockey for position in league standings, all fighting toward a common goal: to make it to that next — and final — “new” season, the CIF playoffs.

When Golden West College's new season of theater unfolds, playgoers may recognize most of the offerings on the 2007-08 menu not from previous visits to the stage, but from moments spent in movie theaters. Of the five titles on the college's theater calendar, four have spawned memorable motion pictures. Some patrons may be surprised that a few of these scripts even had a stage version. Take the season opener, Aaron Sorkin's "A Few Good Men." Sure, it's been produced at Orange Coast College, but it's most noteworthy from the cinematic clash between Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson.
