He was about to take his first college final, but Isaac Taylor, 17, didn't see any reason to be nervous as he settled into his seat with a No. 2 pencil. After all, the test conditions couldn't have been better. He had taken the course for free. He found the subject matter--the history of rock music--to be "cool." And he was on familiar turf, surrounded by his fellow Oxnard High School students in the choir room of their home campus.

Officials have winnowed through dozens of candidates to settle on two finalists for the president's post at Oxnard College. Both were introduced to the public at a question-and-answer forum this week. They are James Williams, president at Arapahoe Community College near Denver, and Francisco Arce, dean of instruction at Diablo Valley College in Contra Costa County. The forum Tuesday drew about 50 people, who wrote their impressions on note cards given to school officials.

Oxnard College officials will interview a dozen candidates early this month for the vacant president's position, a spokesman said. Fifty-nine educators applied for the job, which was left empty in December when Steven Arvizu, 57, resigned because of health complications from a 1998 car accident. The college's presidential search committee will interview the 12 applicants on July 9 and 10 and select five finalists, who will then be interviewed by the governing board and the chancellor.

There are nights when Josh Sanchez hears his brother's voice. In those dreams, Marion "Rudy" Sanchez returns home. "I go to sleep thinking about him," Josh said. "Some nights, I go to bed crying for him. I hear him speak in dreams." "I'll be home soon, mijo. I'm proud of you." The dreams are an odd mixture of meditation and motivation. "I have the same dream," Sanchez said. "I pick up the phone and he tells me he'll be home soon. I go outside but he is never there."

She also toiled for a while as a receptionist, took a few business classes, and for a change moved to Canada for a year to study and work. But one thing remained constant in Moran's life.
