The Orange Coast College football team had plenty to talk about on the three-hour-plus bus ride home after defeating host Santa Barbara City College in the nonconference season opener Saturday. But the Pirates, most assuredly, also talked about nothing. The latter refers to the OCC defense's shutout in the 11-0 victory, the first zero posted by the Pirates in 19 games and only the program's second shutout in 114 contests. As rare as blanking an opponent is, however, it was not totally unexpected.

When Orange Coast College lifts the curtain on "A Patch of Earth" Wednesday, the West Coast premiere will spotlight an incident of genocide that may have been unnoticed by most local audiences. Playwright Kitty Felde's harrowing drama recounts the Srebrenica massacre, where up to 8,000 Muslim Bosnian males were executed by elements of the Serbian army. The play focuses on a young Bosnian Croat soldier who stands before the International Criminal Tribunal charged with "crimes against humanity."

Whatever Orange Coast College football coach Mike Taylor told his team before Saturday's game at Pasadena City College, apparently needed little time to sink in. The Pirates, who slumped to a 21-3 halftime deficit the week before in a 40-32 loss at Palomar, opened emphatically Saturday on their way to a 37-17 victory over the host Lancers. "I challenged the team before the game," said Taylor, who watched his team open a 14-0 cushion in the first 101 seconds, cruise to a 30-0 halftime lead and hold on to improve to 3-1. "We came out flat last week [against Palomar]

The Orange Coast College football team ventures to Escondido High today to battle Palomar at 1 p.m. But it's ground uncharted by a Pirates team since 1991 that Coach Mike Taylor's 2-0 squad is trying to reach. OCC, which has not opened 3-0 since 1991, will attempt to do so against the Comets (2-0), who are ranked No. 23 in the nation by JC Grid-Wire. OCC, on a three-game winning streak, is ranked No. 24 in the state coaches poll, in which Palomar sits No. 13. OCC freshman Kekoa Crowell will make his first start at quarterback for the Pirates, replacing injured sophomore Chad Schmigel (bruised ribs)

Like so many households, hospitals and school districts in California, Orange Coast College has recently found itself hosting guests who fled Hurricane Katrina. And thanks to some generous donors, the college is prepared to welcome more. This week, two young men from Mississippi arrived in OCC's financial aid office, seeking to enroll and have their tuition covered for the fall semester. Melissa Moser, the college's director of financial aid, said administrators were still working to get the students enrolled, even though classes had started a week ago. However, if and when the students -- whose names the college is withholding -- officially sign up for the fall, they will have their funding in place.

One socked 38 home runs in the major leagues. One served as a political leader in a southern African nation. One lived the sweet life in Orange County, stayed in community college for years -- and became a millionaire by his early 30s. Such are the disparate life stories of Brent Mayne, Inonge Mbikusita-Lewanika and Paul Frank, all of whom were named this week as inductees to Orange Coast College's Alumni Hall of Fame....

Roy Disney, nephew of the legendary Walt Disney and a longtime boat owner, has donated his prize-winning racing yacht to the Orange Coast College Foundation, the latest in a string of major gifts to the college's School of Sailing and Seamanship. In late July, Disney donated Pyewacket, an 86-foot vessel, for use by OCC. The acquisition marks the second major gift this year to the sailing school, which received the racing yacht Kialoa III from Marina del Ray businessman Jim Kilroy last May. Disney's crew is sailing Pyewacket from Hawaii to Southern California.

COSTA MESA - Earlier in the week, Dave White felt that his Edison High football team needed to be at its best to beat Servite, the sixth-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division. The veteran head coach was right, but that wasn't the case for the Chargers Thursday at Orange Coast College. Early turnovers, and the inability to take advantage of scoring opportunities, hurt Edison's chances in the nonleague showdown. Servite, though, set the tone from the start and went on to claim a 31-14 victory.

Intellectual farce, thrust toward the audience at full volume, has permeated the stage of the Drama Lab Theatre at Orange Coast College. Eugene Ionesco's absurdist, allegorical comedy "Rhinoceros" is being given a rare revival under the imaginative direction of Rick Golson, with an enthusiastic cast and the technical acumen of David Scaglione, who designed both the multi-functional setting and the rhino makeup, which nearly every cast member eventually...

COSTA MESA - The way they dug themselves into a hole Friday, it seemed a far stretch that the Edison Chargers could make a game of it with Mater Dei. No, not the way the charitable Chargers started things at Orange Coast College. "You can't make that many mistakes and expect to beat a team of Mater Dei's caliber," Edison Coach Dave White said. "But our kids nearly overcame those mistakes, and we had our chances their at the end. " Edison climbed out of a three-touchdown hole before a near-full house at LeBard Stadium, fought and clawed its way back into contention, and had opportunities to go into the lead in the fourth quarter.

COSTA MESA - Where else could the Lebowski Fest have started but in a bowling alley? The movement that hero worships His Dudeness and All Things Dude took root 10 years ago, not in the Golden State but in the Bluegrass State. In October 2001, Lebowski Fest co-founder Scott Schuffitt invited his former classmate and longtime friend, Bill Green, to a bowling party in their hometown of Louisville, Ky. It was themed around "The Big Lebowski," the 1998 cult-classic comedy by the Coen Brothers.

Yancoskie says he can make whatever you want and usually does, since almost all of his orders are custom. “They’ll say, ‘Can you make a piano?’ and then I’ll say, ‘OK, what kind of piano?

Students in the Coast Community College District may pay more to park on campus this fall, as the district announced plans to boost fees to help its underfunded safety departments. The parking increase, if implemented, would affect students at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa and Golden West College in Huntington Beach. According to Rich Pagel, OCC's vice president of administrative services, the district will likely send the matter before the board of trustees in April. Students pay $20 a semester during the fall and spring for campus parking passes, and the change would boost the fee to $30. During the summer, permits would increase to $15 from $10. John Farmer, OCC's public safety chief, said the extra money would help make ends meet for his self-funded department and allow for the hiring of more officers.

When South Coast Repertory was first getting its feet wet in Newport Beach, one of the company's earlier productions from that embryonic 1965 season was Ben Jonson's vintage (1606) comedy "Volpone." That particular play hasn't been staged locally since, but the fellow who helped create the stage musicals "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" and "City of Angels," the movie "Tootsie" and the TV series "M A S H" took a crack at the "Volpone" story line, transforming it into a stage comedy entitled "Sly Fox."
