COSTA MESA - Eric Lo was at a loss for words late Friday. Not once, but twice. "I don't know what to say," the Huntington Beach head coach finally managed to get out, repeating the phrase a few minutes apart, before walking over to join in the celebration with his ecstatic team and coaching staff near one end of the field at LeBard Stadium. You can't blame Lo for not being able to find the right words to describe what had just transpired at Orange Coast College. His Oilers had just upset defending champion and Sunset League rival Edison, 28-21, to continue an amazing journey in the CIF Southern Section Southwest Division playoffs.

Police are searching for vandals who defaced a nativity scene at a church and home in Huntington Beach, spray-painting it with swastikas and other crude drawings. Church officials discovered the graffiti at the St. Bonaventure Catholic Parish in the 16400 block of Springdale Street when they arrived on Sunday morning. Police said vandals drew swastikas and phallic symbols and scrawled “Hail Hitler” on one of the nativity figures.

Huntington Beach residents and police chatted over a cup of coffee this week to get to know one another on equal ground. Wednesday's Coffee with a Cop, the city's first, was similar to those Police Chief Robert Handy planned while working for the San Bernardino and Phoenix police departments, Capt. Russell Reinhart said a day before the event. "It worked very well because it provides an opportunity for residents to communicate with officers on a mutual territory, on non-critical issues," Handy said.

Nothing against the U.S. Open of Surfing, which reflects how big surfing has become on a financial level for both sponsors and the pro surfers, but if you want to go to a surfing contest and actually see some world-class surfing without sharing your view with a couple hundred thousand of your best friends, you're in luck. The American Pro Surfing Series is a three-event series, with all three contests being held on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier. The first event was held back in April, and event No. 2 will take place Friday and Saturday.
