-- ANDREW WAINER The fate of the Huntington Beach High School pool may be determined during the next year. Take the Plunge, a group of locals whose mission is to raise enough money to build a new pool, has collected more than $600,000 for the project. But the group still needs more than a million dollars, and the rest of the money is nowhere on the horizon. Some members of Take the Plunge have criticized the Huntington Beach Union High School District for not contributing to the acquisition of the pool.

When Bill Howard retired he had 247 sick days racked up. "I just never got sick," he simply says. But four years into his retirement he got an odd feeling — he started feeling ill. It puzzled him because, "I've always been very healthy." When the 63-year-old Huntington Beach resident went to the doctors he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Then, just three weeks later, the doctors told him he had prostate cancer. A few months of chemotherapy and the removal of his prostate appears to have knocked out the disease, he says.

Vote: 4-1, Matthew Harper dissenting IN FAVOR WHAT HAPPENED: The board approved the first amendment to the joint use agreement with the city of Huntington Beach for pools at Huntington Beach and Ocean View high schools. These amendments call for the Huntington Beach High pool to be accessible to the community for at least 25 years and for the city to have the option to maintain either pool if the district determines that it is financially unable to maintain one or both of them.

Angelique Flores Michael Simons is a 30-year Huntington Beach resident. Three of his children graduated from schools in the Huntington Beach Union High School District. "The children of our communities and their education are my highest priority," Simons said. The most important issue the district faces is accountability to the students, their parents and the community, he said. "The district must continue to enable our students to become independent thinkers who are able to become successful adults," Simons said.

Huntington Beach High School students shaved their heads at lunch Monday to help clean up the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. A line of students, mostly male, waited their turn to lose their hair to contribute to what is predicted to be the worst oil spill in history. About 60 students donated their hair at the Buzz Cut-a-Thon put on by the Huntington Beach High School student newspaper, Oiler Ink. "I think it's pretty amazing that kids are willing to go to that extreme for a good cause," said Jason Ross, the assistant principal of guidance.
