The building of the Coast Highway in the mid-1920s brought a need to service the automobiles that were expected to use the new highway. This week we'll look back at two partners who did just that. Service stations were popping up all along this new highway to prosperity, and one of these was Jack and Phil's Service Station, located at the corner of Sixth Street and Ocean Avenue (602 PCH) in Huntington Beach. In the early 1920s, Jack Gorham and Phil Drane owned this gas station.

JERRY PERSON We interrupt this column for a special news bulletin. After many years of intense research, world scientists have isolated the mysterious and elusive humor gene. The scientists discovered, by accident, that this exotic gene might have originated in a small group of people known as the Huntington Beach Lions who, at that time, were living in an isolated beach area in California known as Huntington Beach. It was in this group that scientists believe that they may be able to pinpoint the origin of the gene by looking back in time to the year of 1923.

A 1.3-mile stretch of Pacific Coast Highway, from Warner Avenue to Anderson Street in Sunset Beach, was closed for more than 2 hours Thursday as it flooded with high tides and steady rainfall. Caltrans workers responded to the stretch at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday to clear the water that had collected on Pacific Coast Highway and shut down part of the road from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Caltrans Public Information Officer Ruben Fernandez said. Fernandez said workers installed drain plugs to deal with high tides that reached 7.3 feet in the area Wednesday, but the tide and rain exceeded what it could hold.

A developer with local ties will try to make a long-delayed project - which eventually would bring condominiums, businesses and a hotel to downtown Huntington Beach - a reality. DJM Capital Partners announced in a press release last week that it purchased about 11 acres of the vacant 31-acre site designated for the Pacific City project. It will be the fourth developer to become involved in the project in the last eight years. Pacific City seeks to bring 516 residential units, shops, restaurants and an eight-story hotel to the site downtown on Pacific Coast Highway between First and Huntington streets.
