Mike Sciacca With all the construction going on along the stretch of Pacific Coast Highway between Downtown and Beach Boulevard, it might be easy to pass off the gigantic hill of dirt in the parking lot just north of the pier as part of that work-in-progress. If you take a closer look, though, you'll notice that the pile has a purpose. Beginning on Friday near the pier, the Core Tour will touch down in Surf City. The Core Tour is a "gravity-defying sports competition" that is wrapping up its nationwide circuit in Huntington Beach, said Brian Gass, one of the tour's partners and its manager.

Tariq Malik It all started with a pile of dirt. Residents living in the Huntington-By-The-Sea mobile home park said they watched huge earthmover tractors stack truckloads of dirt 30 feet high behind their homes, sometimes up to the wall of their enclave, before it was spread out, dried and carried back to a city construction site behind the AES Corp. power plant. Now, more than three months since the earth moving started, they are fit to be tied.

Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- The Planning Commission decided Tuesday to crack down on "fugitive dust" caused by dirt that blows off construction projects. By a 6-0 vote, the commission approved soil removal at an abandoned oil field near Goldenwest Street and Palm Avenue, but not before adding conditions to protect nearby residents from the dust that covers houses, cars and trees. Commissioner Fred Speaker was absent. The commission required that mounds of dirt not be piled higher than 8 feet, that a nylon mesh wind breaker surround the site and that city staff increase inspections, with the cost reimbursed by the developer.

Mike Sciacca When Brian Gass first toyed with the idea of bringing an alternative sports and music festival to Huntington Beach, he wasn't quite sure how a city that goes by the moniker, "Surf City," would embrace an event that didn't include surfing. Gass even plopped the Core Tour right by the surf at Main Street in the parking lot just north of the pier. With curious onlookers hanging around to see what was going on, the crowd swelled to several thousand last weekend, and Gass knew that the event was a hit. "What an incredible weekend this turned out to be," said Gass, the manager and a partner of the Core Tour.

The Fountain Valley/Huntington Beach Five Star Dirt Dog White travel baseball team was somewhat of a Cinderella story. Playing in Cooperstown, New York, the 12-year-olds had been together for only a month. They were playing against teams that had been together for years. Yet, the slipper fit for the Dirt Dogs Sunday, as they captured the 12-year-old Cooperstown All-Star Village tournament championship by beating the Mission Viejo Thunder, 13-12. The Dirt Dog White team had previously been beaten by Mission Viejo in the week-long tournament, 11-3.

Dirt. It’s everywhere. Gumming up the keys of my laptop computer, clogging the zoom lens of my camera. It’s in all of my clothing. There’s even dirt in my dreams. And then in the memories of unzipping the tent every morning to see another perfect, yet absolutely different-from-last-night, landscape. Dirt in my nightmares, too. Of the ground rushing up to meet us as our Porsche Cayenne tumbled end over end. There was dirt all over the inside of the vehicle and dirt mixed with blood.
