COSTA MESA — No one heard the national anthem play before the Orange County All-Star Football Game. No one heard the public address announcer introduce the 70 recent graduates playing in their final high school game. The public address system was out of order Friday night at Orange Coast College. One player the crowd heard loud and clear was Costa Mesa High guard Travis Whitlock. He lost his helmet on the field in the process. Whitlock paved the way for the game's first touchdown.

In three varsity seasons at Cathedral Catholic High in San Diego, Moynihan amassed 142 hits, a .437 career batting average, 80 stolen bases and was an All-CIF and all-state performer.

She thought her artistic abilities were forever taken away, then she found a new path. In 2007 Un Joo Kang was in college and working as a makeup artist when a drunken driver crashed into her, crushing the lower half of her body. But five years later, at Orange Coast College she found Extended Opportunities, Programs and Services (EOPS), which provided her with the help she needed to go in a new direction: architecture. "I'm going to cry, but it's one of those things where I couldn't do that before and I can do that now," said Kang, a mother of two. "I shouldn't be walking, let alone be alive.

The Sea Kings' staff, led by Scott Meyer, coached the South. The Sea Kings' quarterback, Cayman Carter, started the first and second halves. The Sea Kings' kicker, Griff Amies, handled the kicking duties throughout. The Sea Kings' defensive end, Tim Reinhardt, harassed the quarterback.

T hirty-one seniors from Orange Coast Middle College High School's final graduating class received their diplomas on Wednesday to the thunderous applause of several hundred people in the audience. It was a tearful experience for many, including alumni who attended the event in the Robert B. Moore Theatre at Orange Coast College. The high school, which affords students the opportunity to earn college credits at OCC, opened in 1996. But due to cutbacks, the school was forced to close in order to save the Newport-Mesa Unified School District $800,000 at a time when the state is withholding billions of dollars in funding for various school districts.
