When Courtney Liss heard a humanitarian with first-hand experience of the Rwandan genocide was visiting her school to speak to students, she planned on going, but knew the subject would be depressing. By the end of it, the 16-year-old left feeling a sense of hope and promise. "He was inspiring," she said, adding that it was clear to her from the speech that helping others doesn't mean traveling abroad, but could simply mean making a difference in your own community. "His stories about the people of Rwanda show humility and people appreciating what they have," Courtney said.

Growing up in Huntington Beach, Val Bertignoli played S.K.A.T.E. almost every day with friends. This weekend, he'll be at the center of a tournament again — only this time, he's looking to show off his business savvy rather than his skateboarding prowess. Bertignoli, a 21-year-old Orange Coast College student, founded the skate shop Street Wise in August. The shop, tucked into a strip mall at 18358 Beach Blvd., offers skateboards, clothing, protective gear and other accessories.

I love Huntington Beach. I love everything about it, and I say that with the utmost sincerity. I've lived in Surf City all of my life. My kids went to Huntington Beach High School and so did I. To my surprise, I discovered that many of their friends from school had familiar last names. That's because their parents were classmates of mine. Class of 1977 — go Oilers! Now that I've disclosed my age, it's pretty obvious that I have resided in HB for a substantial amount of time.

As the horrific environmental disaster in the Gulf continues to destroy the precious wildlife and threaten the livelihood of generations of seafood fisherman, it is impossible not to empathize with the longtime residents. The fallout will ultimately affect the next generation of fishermen and the legacy they hold so dear. Huntington Beach is a city rich in legacy and tradition, much like our beachfront neighbors in the Gulf. We should all take a moment to embrace these treasures, count our blessings and not take them for granted.
