In the latest chapter in an ongoing row about the installation of cell-phone towers near schools and parks, T-Mobile plans to sue Huntington Beach for breach of contract. The mobile phone provider filed a federal complaint last week, but City Attorney Jennifer McGrath said the city has not yet been served. The complaint claims the city reneged on a contract it had with T-Mobile to install two of the towers on city land. But city officials say the contract still stands. ?

Regarding ?City moves cell tower,? April 30: As a Huntington Harbour resident living 1.25 miles from this potential site for the cell tower, I do not feel opposed to or for the tower aside from the looks of it. My concern and issue was more the precedent that this was setting for location within the city. It appeared that the council, by this ?emergency meeting,? were creating an albatross that would stir NIMBY mentality as it had with the desalinization plant. If it were not acceptable at the proposed site, then where would be acceptable?

As I’ve written about on many occasions, the Bolsa Chica Wetlands is one of my favorite places in Huntington Beach. I start most mornings with a couple of laps around the loop trail there, and not a visit goes by without some sort of spectacular wildlife encounter, whether it’s coming face to face with a snowy egret or watching a ray move slowly and smoothly through the water across the muddy ocean floor. That’s why I could not wait to get my hands on David Carlberg’s wonderful new book, “Bolsa Chica — Its History from Prehistoric Times to the Present.

Chris Epting was driving through the three-way stop at Heil Avenue and Saybrook Lane when an SUV nearly broadsided him. Three girls in the car were all holding separate conversations on cell phones, the driver actually achieving a "rare drinking/smoking/cell-phoning trifecta" while behind the wheel, Epting said. These type of stop-sign runners seemed to be occurring all too often to the Huntington Harbour resident. So he decided to take the matter in his own hands. On the evening of Jan. 14, Epting walked out to the three-way intersection with a digital camera and started filming.

Amy Yune stood before her class of fourth-graders working out a math problem on the board. She wasn't using chalk, though. Instead, she picked a blue stylus from a tray and what she wrote was projected onto a board. When she finished writing out the problem, Yune touched a box on the projector and everything, even her marks, disappeared. This no ordinary blackboard — it's a SMART Board. The new interactive devices, installed this year into every third- through fifth-grade classroom at Harbour View Elementary School in Huntington Beach, perform several functions that aid in interactive learning and leave no mess.
