After more than three months of restricted hours Huntington Harbour again is open 24 hours. While boaters and business owners are relieved, they said they will continue to ask the Navy to find a way to separate civilian and military boat traffic so that this dilemma will not reoccur. "We sent out a proposal that would cost about a half a million dollars to cut a hole in the inner jetty before you even reach the Naval Weapons Station," said Scott Seaton, the manager of Peter's Landing Marina.

As the annual Huntington Harbour Cruise of Lights sets sail tonight, there will be fewer outside boaters present than in years past. Since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, hours during which boaters can come in and out of the harbor have been greatly restricted. While this limitation has some Harbour residents irked, the Navy says it is necessary. Once open 24 hours, passage is now restricted to 6 to 8 a.m. during the week and 6 to 9 a.m. on weekends and 2 to 4 p.m. every day. The reason for restriction is quite simple, said Gregg Smith, spokesman for the Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach.

Tuesday morning, I spent more than an hour at Coastline Community College with a woman who declared herself a pacifist at an early age, then went on to a long career with theU.S. military. From the above paragraph, you may think this is going to be a story about transformation. It's not. Stephanie Stone, a retired Navy corpsman, has never served in combat, never even treated a combat casualty. But Tuesday morning, she became the second guest in Coastline's Coffee with a Veteran series, in which members of the public mingle with people who have served their country in myriad ways.

Archie Gregory has spent four decades visiting schools, riding in parades and speaking at functions to deliver one basic message: that he is not a hero. Not now, not ever. In his mind, he wasn't a hero when the bombs first struck at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Gregory, a sailor in the Navy who was serving on a repair ship, had stepped onto another vessel to visit an old school friend the moment the explosions began. The force threw him into the water and gave him a concussion that left a permanent scar.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt called Pearl Harbor a “date which will live in infamy,” and Frank Weitzel well remembers having to live through it. Stationed aboard the heavy cruiser U.S.S. San Francisco as a 19-year-old Navy engineer working to overhaul the engine room, the Huntington Beach man watched helplessly as planes flew in and sank ships right across the harbor. Though only one man of 800 was hit by gunfire on his ship, they were all a captive audience to the Japanese sneak attack that pulled the U.S. into World War II. “Suddenly things got real bad,” he said.
