A Long Beach woman filed a claim with the city after a Huntington Beach police officer allegedly hit her vehicle. Thung Tran, 26, filed a claim, the precursor to a lawsuit, March 31 for an unknown amount after a car accident earlier that month. Tran was driving along Temple Avenue in Long Beach around noon at the same time Brian Seitz, an on-duty Huntington Beach police officer, was attempting to make a U-turn on Temple Avenue, according to the claim. As Seitz started to turn his brown Chevy Malibu, the front left of his car “clipped” the right front of Tran’s white Toyota Sienna, according to the claim.

Editor's note: This email was also sent to Huntington Beach Councilman Jim Katapodis, who responds below. Let me start with this basic question of Councilman Jim Katapodis: What is the difference between plastic bags and Styrofoam containers environmentally? Why is it you voted to ban bags but voted against a polystyrene ban? Why don't council members want to allow the residents their given right to vote on issues that affect them? Do you not represent the taxpayers? At least let us decide the direction we should take and not force us to follow an anarchistic approach based on your own interests and agenda.

I recently went to the LeBard Park fields, where Seaview plays its Little League baseball games, and I had a chance to see the new marker that was placed this season for Greg Willard. He was the beloved Seaview Little League board member - and former NBA referee - who died last year. I wrote about Willard in this column last year, and the tribute to him at the fields was touching. While there, I also learned an interesting story about a food truck that was parked at the fields.

In Matthew Harper's nearly three years on the Huntington Beach City Council, he has built a reputation as conservative, pro-business and unfraid to put in his 2 cents. He always comes to the meetings prepared, whether he intends to speak for or against an item. On occasion, he'll get into a little back-and-fourth with colleagues. "He'll irritate a lot of people, and being truthful isn't something that is easy to swallow," said his father, William Harper. "He tries to be tactful, but he's got his priorities set pretty firmly.
