A $1.5-million federal grant that one Orange County community college district rejected is about to be scooped up by another district in the county to encourage the development of new businesses. The grant from the U.S. Commerce Department will help the Rancho Santiago Community College District build a business incubator for digital-imaging companies.

Rancho Santiago College art instructor and gallery curator Mayde Herberg believes that there can be more to humor than a good laugh--especially in art. "I think that it can be a very powerful tool, that it can effect change and raise people's consciousness on certain issues," Herberg explained in an interview this week. To help make her point, she has organized an exhibit, "Seriously Humorous," that explores the use of humor in the work of 19 contemporary California artists.

Until late last month, the Santa Ana College football office phone answering machine still said: "You have reached the Rancho Santiago football office." It was just one of many things to deal with on Coach Dave Ogas' "things to do list" that started on the first day in July when the college reverted back to being called Santa Ana after 12 years as Rancho Santiago.

With the unfurling of a banner Tuesday, Santiago Canyon College was born. The event marked the new college's independence after 12 years as the satellite campus of Rancho Santiago College.

The move is being made because the Orange campus of Rancho Santiago is breaking off and will be called Santiago Canyon College.

We're likely to be awfully tired of hearing about 1492 in this quincentennial year of argumentative exhibits and performances that do everything but toss Christopher Columbus off the Santa Maria and force him to swim back to Spain. But one year of highly publicized dissension is only a drop in the ocean when you consider the generations of schoolchildren who never heard the bad news about Columbus' voyage to the New World.
