If it's summertime in Huntington Beach, you can be sure things are going to get dirty. This, of course, has nothing to do with local politics, but rather with the annual opening of Adventure Playground, a 1.5-acre corner of Huntington Central Park best known for its mud slide and Huck Finn-style rafting pond. "Kids are always being told to stay clean and keep out of anything dirty," says Kim White, 23, director of the playground. "This is the only time they're allowed to be dirty."

 Huntington Beach High has been waiting patiently for the arrival of Hagen Danner, one of the stars from the 2011 Little League World Series championship team. Now that he's a freshman, Danner is living up to the hype. So what if Edison players were yelling from the dugout in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and two outs on Wednesday trying to pressure the 15-year-old pitcher who's already committed to UCLA. "The kid has pitched in front of the world," Huntington Beach Coach Benji Medure said.

California officials on Friday announced that they were beginning to draw tsunami flood maps in Huntington Beach, Crescent City and other communities that local cities could use to regulate development in areas along the coast at risk during a large tsunami. The California Geological Survey made the announcement Friday in advance of the 50th anniversary of the deadliest tsunami that has hit modern California. Fifty years ago next Thursday, a tsunami triggered by a 9.2 earthquake in Alaska killed 13 people in California alone.

Seems that Nostradamus has nothing on me. On Monday, musing about the weekend mayhem in Huntington Beach after the U.S. Open of Surfing, I peered into my crystal ball and proposed a high-tech solution to such violence: the Breathe Into the Phone to Prove You're Sober app. And like the ancient sage, it turns out I was right -- kind of. There is a high-tech solution, but it's staring us right in the face (or ear): the smartphone. Here's an interesting fact about modern life: When people today act badly, other people take their pictures . And they share those pictures.

I tend to like children, and generally harbor positive thoughts about the future. But I had my doubts this summer, maybe like you, after the U.S. Open of Surfing crowd degenerated into marauding and brawling - young men clashing with police in riot gear, flipping over rows of porta-potties, ripping out street signs and using them to bash into local businesses. They called it a "riot. " A riot, however, happens when there is at least the perception of some sort of injustice. This was no riot.

Kotsch was the founder of the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum and earned a spot in the beach city's Surfing Walk of Fame for her effort to preserve the memorabilia and artifacts of the surfing culture.

When 66-year-old Lance Jencks first began bodysurfing at the Wedge in Newport Beach, he would often arrive at 7 a.m. and stay until 11 a.m. Jencks wanted to get out there early because he loved the morning's glassy waves, he explained to the city's Parks, Beaches and Recreation Commission during its meeting Tuesday night. But so did everybody else, be they equipped with a surfboard, bodyboard, skimboard or, like Jencks and his bodysurfing peers, a pair of swim fins at most. Following two hours of emotional public comment about who should be allowed to surf where and when, commissioners decided to leave current surfing rules in Newport Beach just as they are, including those that govern the Wedge, the Daily Pilot reported . Potential changes ranged from the shortening of exclusive swim time from 40th to 44th streets to the establishment of a small skimboard zone near Balboa Pier.
