Deborah Wilder Moseley is not the most talented actor in her family - or so she believes. Born to Lynna Joy Armour, who won an Atlas Award in 1956 for her performance in "The Moon is Blue," and William Moseley, who worked for NBC and produced the Sunday afternoon soap opera "Matinee Theater," Moseley grew up in a highly creative environment. It is no wonder, then, that by age 6 she had taken a page from her parents' book. Now 56, the Santa Ana resident has racked up three decades of experience making commercials and working on television and in film.

Though he was born into baseball, stardom was hardly a birthright for Brett Wallach. For while he logged hours in uniform shagging in the outfield during batting practice as his dad, five-time All-Star Tim Wallach, toiled for 17 major league seasons, the younger Wallach was more seedling than the proverbial apple off the tree for most of his diamond career. But that began to change his senior year at Orange Lutheran High. And, since arriving at Orange Coast College, he has blossomed into one of, if not the premier player in the state.

COSTA MESA — Some time in the future, Desiree Sanchez may have to feed thousands of wealthy restaurant patrons. On Thursday, she merely had to please four judges and a dozen classmates — but it was an intense enough experience. The Orange Coast Middle College High School senior, who plans to attend the California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena and become a seafood chef, joined the rest of her graduating class this year in researching careers in the community. The seniors capped off their studies by making PowerPoint presentations in class Thursday morning.

COSTA MESA — Richard Hoff observed his last graduation Thursday as an Orange Coast Middle College High School teacher. He couldn't have gone out on a better note. Hoff, who will retire this month, is the last remaining faculty member from Middle College's charter year in 1996. Over the last decade, he's watched the student body expand and test scores rise — and on Thursday, for the first time, he presided over a class in which every graduating senior was headed to college.

COSTA MESA — Ears perked up last month when city officials mentioned during a City Council budget study session that Costa Mesa had made a $6 million settlement related to a car crash. Residents, workers and the usual council critics wondered when the settlement was reached, who was involved, and why they hadn't heard about it. Critics claimed the city was spending money while it looked to lay off workers, a claim the city rebutted earlier this week. The settlement, it turns out, was reached more than a year ago and didn't affect this year's budget.

T homas Melindi was tested on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan as a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. Then he was tested in the classrooms of Orange Coast College. On Thursday, as the student speaker at the college's graduation ceremony, Melindi, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native, playfully compared the two experiences, saying each was equally stressful. But one thing is now certain: His next step in life is going to be just as calculated and concise as it was in the classroom and on the battlefield.

COSTA MESA - The shorthanded Orange Coast College men's volleyball team pushed defending state champion Long Beach City College to the limit on Friday night before the Vikings found the upper hand down the stretch for a five-set win inside OCC's Peterson Gym.
