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."

State lawmakers have come up with a way to help California cities deal with a proliferation of massage parlors with suspected links to prostitution and human trafficking. New legislation is aimed at fixing an inadvertent loophole created by a 2008 law that created a state-sponsored council to oversee the regulation of legitimate massage therapy businesses, such as spas and clinics. The loophole led to an explosion of massage parlors in many cities. For example, their number grew by nearly 500% to 75 in the city of Huntington Beach between 2009 and 2013.

About a dozen friends gathered Thursday evening to remember a 21-year-old former member of the Spur Posse, which came under police scrutiny for its point system based on sexual conquests, who was shot dead in the midst of a Fourth of July melee. Christopher Albert, who had moved to Huntington Beach a few months ago, had been walking along Pacific Coast Highway with some friends about 11 p.m. Tuesday when he was shot in the chest.

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.

A worker was trapped in an underground vault that erupted in flames in Huntington Beach on Monday afternoon. There was no immediate word on the worker's condition. Contract workers for Southern California Edison were in the vault at Tisbury Circle and Mistral Drive in Huntington Harbour when the accident happened about 12:17 p.m. Several workers, who were called to a scheduled outage in the neighborhood, escaped from the vault. One did not. Smoke could be seen rising from the vault and rescue workers were waiting for Edison to turn off power to the vault before entering.

Boosted by strong sales in its first financial quarter, Boeing Co. beat analysts' estimates largely due to an increased production rate of commercial jetliners. The Chicago aerospace giant reported a profit of $965 million, or $1.28 a share. That's down 12.7% from last year's first-quarter profit of $1.11 billion, or $1.44 a share. Boeing attributed the fall to a $330-million write-off related to changes in its pension plans and a one-time tax credit in 2013. The company's core earnings -- excluding retirement costs and the write-off -- rose to $1.76 per share, up from $1.73 during the same period a year ago. Analysts had expected core profit of $1.56 per share.

 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 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.
