Orange Coast College is dragging Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance," kicking and screaming, into the 21st century with a robust, rollicking production that deserves much more stage time, but closes Sunday. Directed with punch and power by Peter Uribe, the 1879 operetta has never been funnier nor more melodic in a local production. The show spills out into the audience and in your face — if you happen to be seated in the third row center. Uribe, bolstered by Angela Lopez's stellar choreography, has mounted as stirring a revival of this celebrated comic opera as you're likely to witness.

It wasn’t a cry for help, just the Grossmont College women’s tennis team celebrating on the court right next to Bass and Furuvald. The No. 3-seeded Griffins clinched the Southern California Regional Dual Team Championship, beating No. 1 OCC, 5-2, Tuesday.

The 1975 football season brings back many fond memories for longtime Orange Coast College fans. Thirty-five years ago Coach Dick Tucker assembled perhaps the finest team in community college football annals. The Pirates went 11-0, hammered Rio Hondo College in the Avocado Bowl, 38-14, and won the national title. No OCC team since has come close to duplicating that feat. I was privileged to attend every game that year. The '75 team will be honored during special halftime ceremonies at the OCC-San Diego Mesa game Oct. 2 at LeBard Stadium.

El CAJON - Any thoughts that the Orange Coast College football team was building on a potentially special season were likely washed away by a deluge of 35 straight points by host Grossmont Saturday. Grossmont rallied from a 10-0 deficit to earn a 49-31 conquest in a game between highly regarded teams that both came in 1-0 in the Southern Conference. The Griffins (4-1, 2-0 in conference), ranked No. 5 in Southern California and No. 13 in the state, extended their winning streak over OCC to five.
