Huntington Beach

I got the invitation late and I had other plans for Sunday night. So I had mixed feelings about going to the Thanksgiving service organized by the Greater Huntington Beach Interfaith Council. When I pulled into the Warner Avenue parking lot of the Community United Methodist Church, I hardly expected to find every parking space with a car in it. As I drove up and down nearby residential streets looking for a spot to park my car, I was tempted to pull back onto Warner and go home.

Roger Carlson Roy Miller, one of the legendary figures in Huntingon Beach High basketball lore, has stepped down from his job as varsity basketball coach after a 23-year reign, although he has left it open to return after a year's absence, should he choose. "I just need to evaluate some things," said the 48-year-old Miller, who is best remembered as a member of Elmer Combs' fabled 1968 Oilers squad which made it to the CIF 4-A Finals against Compton, and as a coach whose 1993 team made it to the Division I-A Finals against Mater Dei, keyed by the presence of junior Tony Gonzalez.
