If she couldn't do anything to stop excessive teenage drinking, Micayla Vermeeren wanted to do something to prevent anyone else from getting hurt or dying in a related car accent . And in some cases, from dying. Spurred by the death of Kelly Morehouse, who died in a traffic incident involving an alleged drunk driver, the 18-year-old senior from Huntington Beach High School took it upon herself to start a free designated-driving service on Facebook called HB On Call. "I'm not trying to condone any of the behavior that's going on - underage drinking, drug usage, any of that stuff," she said.

Kelly Morehouse had aspirations to become a teacher, like her parents. She earned her bachelor's degree in elementary education from Cal State Long Beach in May and started talking with Circle View first-grade teacher Heather Pouelsen. She was planning on student-teaching with Pouelsen in the fall, said Karen Morehouse, Kelly's mother, who has been teaching English at Huntington Beach High School for 38 years. Bill Morehouse, her father, who retired in 2012 after 37 years at Huntington Beach High, said his daughter had an inkling of what she wanted to do when she was still in high school, but he remembers when the idea really began to crystallize for her. "All of a sudden a light came on and that's what every parent waits for," he recalled.

Huntington Beach High School's Sustainability Club is exactly what its name suggests. It's self sufficient after just three years of being in existence, not relying on the Huntington Beach Union High School District for any funding. "The Sustainability program is definitely sustainable, it doesn't cost taxpayers or the district a dollar," said Greg Goran, Huntington Beach High Sustainability Club director and teacher of social studies and an Environmental Awareness and Responsibility class.

There are many palm trees in Huntington Beach, but few as meaningful as the pair of graceful and slender Mexican fan palms that scrape the sky just several blocks from the ocean on Eighth Street. Like the house they sway in front of, they date back to the early 1920s. What makes them so special? They were planted by a father to honor the day his son was born - an effort to create two lasting monuments to mark his baby boy's entry into this world. That proud papa obviously knew what he was doing, because today, the trees tower over everything in sight.
