COSTA MESA — Late Tuesday morning, a huge white truck pulled up behind the Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion and unloaded an essential piece of Orange Coast College history. The items the workmen were carrying didn't look like much from a distance: six canvas slabs wrapped heavily in tape and plastic. Inside, however, was a memento from the days before OCC even became a school. The canvases contained a pair of murals depicting life at the Santa Ana Army Air Base, which stood on the campus during World War II — and which now kicked off OCC's exhibit covering its first 60 years.

STEVE SMITH In every city, there are still good places to treasure hunt; places where bar codes and a regimented sales experience gets in the way of what is supposed to be a lot of fun. Call me crazy, but I think shopping should be fun, that is, unless you have to shop for a bail bondsman. I just happen to be one of the few men who likes to shop. For me, at this time, the best place to shop is the Orange Coast College Swap Meet on Saturdays and Sundays.
