Jenny Marder A group of residents refuse to take no for an answer when it comes to Independence Day fireworks on the beach. Though a proposal to hold a fireworks display at the city beach has already been denied by the City Council twice, Councilwoman Pam Julien Houchen will bring the measure back at the Feb. 17 meeting -- this time armed with a more convincing argument and stronger support. The four council members who voted against the proposal on Jan. 19 said that they feared a repeat of the riots that swept through Surf City in the 1990s.

It's back this Sunday — Huntington Beach's own gastronomic event for the ages, the Taste of Huntington Beach. OK, so maybe I get extra excited as I'm returning as a judge, but even if I wasn't, I'd still be there to support this exceptional cause that benefits the HB children's library (and everyone at the event is a volunteer — all the money goes to the charity). In case you've never been, a few of the facts: One price covers all you care to taste and sip, and there are more than 40 restaurants, 15 breweries and 30 wineries.

All right, I have three months to move to Huntington Beach. During interviews, sources often ask me whether I actually live in Surf City. I tell them no, I live in Costa Mesa, but that's "close enough. " Nonsense. The first Mr. Huntington Beach pageant in nearly 20 years is coming to town Nov. 18, and I want in. After all, I have talents to spare. I can sit on a beach chair wearing a Gumby costume and have an assistant fit a kite string in my hand. I can write and sing a horrible rap song.

The U.S. Open of Surfing is set to descend on Huntington Beach on Saturday — and with it, one of the largest tourist crowds of the year. To the city's beachfront hotels, that means reservations filling up by May or June. To drivers, it means gridlock around Pacific Coast Highway. To restaurants, it means a bonanza of potential customers. And to the city's Marketing and Visitors Bureau, it means just that: plenty of marketing and plenty of visitors. "It brings a lot more foot traffic to the community to spend dollars in the community, including staying in the hotels," said Steve Bone, the bureau's president.
