The Coast Community College District is seeking feedback from students and faculty at its three campuses before considering a districtwide smoking ban. The proposed ban, which the board plans to vote on in the spring, would affect Coast's three colleges - Orange Coast in Costa Mesa, Golden West in Huntington Beach, and Coastline, which has campuses in several locations, including Newport Beach and Fountain Valley. Currently, OCC and Coastline prohibit smoking within 20 feet of a building entrance or window.

The first play from scrimmage gave an indication of what type of Saturday night it would be for Orange Coast College, and for Golden West. The Rustlers began with a trick play - a double pass - as quarterback Chris d'Entremont threw a backward pass to receiver Luke Pastell, who threw to a wide-open Nik Little for a 74-yard touchdown. It spelled doom for OCC. The Rustlers dominated on offense and defense in their 52-7 Southern Conference victory that gave them the Bell for the fourth straight year at OCC. Golden West, the home team in the 46th edition of the Battle for the Bell, used the first play from scrimmage to gain control.

But the student leaders in the Coast Community College District argue that the grass can be greener on our side if we move toward sustainable practices.

This council is comprised of student leaders from the district's three campuses: Coastline Community College, Golden West College and Orange Coast College.

Since posting a 7-4 season that ended in a bowl game in 2006, the Orange Coast College football program has longed for mediocrity. With a 26-42 record (a winning percentage of 35.3), and a 9-27 mark against conference opponents (winning just 25% of the time) from 2007 on, Coach Mike Taylor's Pirates have inspired little fanfare and even fewer fans. But for a little more than the three hours it took for OCC to hand a stunning 55-48 loss to a Saddleback team that was ranked No. 21 in the state and No. 11 in Southern California on Saturday night, the Pirates put together one of their finest four-quarter performances in recent memory.

Orange Coast College's Bill Alvarez Memorial Wheelchair Rugby Exhibition, originally scheduled for Saturday, has been postponed. The Disabled Students Programs and Services group was unable to find enough players for the 10th annual match. The event will be held in the spring, but the college has not announced a date, said OCC spokesman Doug Bennett. The rugby exhibition raises money for student scholarships and honors a popular OCC staff member, Bill Alvarez, who died nine years ago. Alvarez, who used a wheelchair after suffering a spinal cord injury, worked at the college for 14 years as coordinator of its High Tech Center, according to a news release.

The concrete quadrangle of the cramped Orange Coast College pool might have, at times, been confused with an octagon Wednesday afternoon. Both the host Pirates and Golden West College were clearly in no mood to back down in the combative Orange Empire Conference first-place showdown in men's water polo. In the end, it was the Pirates who displayed more passivity, allowing the Rustlers to prevail, 13-10. Golden West (15-1, 4-0 in conference), ranked No. 1 in the state, showed the supreme confidence of a perennial state championship contender.

COSTA MESA - On a night when the Orange Coast College football program turned back the clock to honor its first national championship team of 50 years ago, the current edition of Pirates dialed down the intensity enough to encounter a humbling defeat. Long Beach City College (1-2), which came in on a 14-game losing streak and had allowed 85 points in its first two losses this season, scored the game's first 19 points and pounded its way to a 46-16 triumph at OCC. OCC (1-2) appeared sluggish on both sides of the ball and committed the game's only two turnovers, which the Vikings turned into touchdowns during a stretch in which they scored on four straight first-half possessions to build a 19-0 cushion.

MOORPARK - Moving the ball down the field did not prove difficult for the Orange Coast College football team during Saturday night's season opener at Moorpark. Getting the ball through the uprights at the end? That was another matter entirely. The Pirates missed four field-goal attempts in the fourth quarter and three overtime possessions. Soon, they missed a chance to win their first season opener in four years. Moorpark quarterback Nick Davis scored on a one-yard keeper on his team's third overtime possession, allowing the Raiders to escape with a 27-21 triple-overtime victory.
