I received a lot of positive feedback in regards to last week's piece on the efforts underway to get rid of Dog Beach.
I have since heard from a City Council member insisting that Dog Beach is "not in play." That's good news.
On another topic, it is well below freezing and I'm starting to shiver. Ice is piled over my head and my breath is coming out in thick, cold puffs. Just an average day in Huntington Beach, right? It is if you're standing in the freezer at Brewster's Ice on 6th Street, just off Main, where I had the pleasure of visiting one recent, balmy morning.
Fourth of July is one of the busiest times of the year here at one of the oldest businesses in town (it's actually the oldest owned by the original proprietors), but Mike Costello still took some time to talk to me in between hauling blocks of ice off a delivery truck. He's worked here for 22 years, and he's married to Ellen Brewster whose dad started this cool operation back in 1945.
