Mikel Bistany admits that his life hasn't just turned around; it has spun around. A former motorcycle gang member who "took my frustrations out with my fists," Bistany, 38, is now interim head of Orange Coast College's department of physical education for handicapped students. He also coaches the college's wheelchair basketball team. "I have the best job in the world," Bistany said. "I wouldn't be here if it weren't for these people. I get love in my job. Not many people can say that."
