The County of Orange has plans to develop Sunset Aquatic Park, an existing county regional park adjacent to Huntington Beach at the end of Edinger Avenue. This property is valued at upward of $1 million an acre. Because of the very loud voices of local homeowners who consider RVers transients, the Huntington Beach City Council voted a proposal to recommend to the County Board of Supervisors that the property be used for dry boat storage. Can anyone imagine using that expensive beach property for storage?

Riley's of heir-apparent Marian Bergeson. The county's business is ever more complicated and too much in need of innovative approaches to let anyone have a cakewalk into office. Campaigns spark debate and, occasionally, ideas.
