But if the first 10 games are any indication, Orange Coast College opponents this season should be careful what they wish for. The Pirates used five combined innings of hitless, scoreless relief from winner Brian Bass and Parker Manahan to secure a 9-2 nonconference triumph over visiting Long Beach City College on Tuesday, continuing a...

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.

Newport-Mesa has lost a bellwether and an icon. Retired Orange Coast College history professor Giles T. Brown died Saturday. He was 97. The 65-year Newport Beach resident was modest and unassuming. Brown was the college's last surviving charter faculty member. Hired in the summer of 1948 by founding OCC President Basil H. Peterson, Brown taught history and served as chairman of the college's social sciences division. In 2007, OCC acknowledged Brown's extraordinary contributions when it named its 300-seat lecture hall the Giles T. Brown Forum.
