Alumni swimmers who used the Huntington Beach High School pool from 1954 to 1991 are being invited back as part of a campaign to raise $400,000 to reopen the aging facility. The 64-year-old pool has been closed since 1991 because of budget cuts. The school's aquatic teams have been forced to use other pools for practice and competitions. The "Take the Plunge" campaign started in December and has raised $25,000. Organizers hope to reach about 400 alumni swimmers with this latest effort.

Gov. Pete Wilson's proposal to lengthen the public school year would add eight days to the typical high school student's calendar in Huntington Beach but none at all for students in Garden Grove or Laguna Beach. What accounts for the gap? In a phrase, staff development. Under California law, schools may take up to eight days out of the 180-day school year for teacher training. For teachers, those are work days. For students, they're days off.

For a slice of Ventura County's future, look to Huntington Beach and listen above the clacking of the skateboards to a shirtless, whippet-thin high school senior with nipple rings and a puka shell necklace: "Big air! They're all going for big air, big grind, big slash," said Jesse Brunell, watching a young man in drooping camouflage pants execute a midair pirouette. "It's a way of life for just about everyone here. We're into what I call expressive adrenaline."

The Huntington Beach High School Foundation this week kicked off its "Take the Plunge" campaign aimed at raising $400,000 to reopen the closed campus pool. "Our goal is to have the pool open for the kids by late 1998," foundation President Sylvia Garrett said Monday. The Huntington Beach Union High School District closed the 64-year-old pool in 1991 because of budget cutbacks.
