Heather Grow would have no trouble reading a council agenda by night and reading "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" by day. The first-time Huntington Beach City Council candidate has worked for nearly three years as an inclusion facilitator for special-needs children at the YMCA. In her spare time the last few months, she's made the rounds as a candidate, speaking at meet-ups at friends' houses, designing campaign signs and handing out cards with a slogan — "Public service without politics" — meant to underline the fact that she isn't a career politician.

After years and years of hard work and planning, the Huntington Beach Tree Society is holding a rededication ceremony for Butterfly Park. It's officially Norma Gibbs Park, and Norma Gibbs is expected to be present at the celebration. She was the first woman elected to the Huntington Beach City Council and served from 1970 to '78. She was mayor from 1975 to '76. In the past few years the 7-acre plot of land was transformed from Scary Park back to Butterfly Park with the help of Park Restoration Coordinator Leslie Gilson , Tree Society President Jean Nagy and Tina Stevenson, the park's education coordinator.

From politics to religion to business to holiday festivities, it sometimes felt as though Noble Waite touched every aspect of life in Huntington Beach. And some days, it felt as though every side of life congregated at his drugstore - the hub of Surf City life that Waite ran for nearly three decades. The World War II veteran, who went on to serve Huntington as a councilman and church leader, ran one of the few drugstores around at a time when they meant more than in-and-out shopping.

Students are "real quiet, subdued," said Lynn McCall, special education clerk at the school. "The shock has worn off, and people are just quiet. Teachers have tried to keep the kids to together to talk about [Scotty's] death." Scotty, a 16-year-old junior at Fountain Valley High School, collapsed during football practice Monday afternoon.
