Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- With cars already zooming down Pacific Coast Highway, a city plan to add more lanes to the busy thoroughfare is driving some nearby residents nuts. "It's going to be a speedway," said Rhonda Jones Pisani. Not only will driving the highway become more harried, but Pisani is concerned it will become even more dangerous for beach-goers who jaywalk across the highway. A number of pedestrians have been struck -- even killed -- by passing cars over the years.

A tornado is believed to have touched down in Sunset Beach, and parts of Pacific Coast Highway are closed for flooding due to heavy rains. Rain has flooded out several areas of Huntington Beach, causing authorities to close the southbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway from Warner Avenue to Seapoint Avenue, said Lt. John Domingo of the Police Department. 12th Street and Crest Avenue and the 8400 block of Edinger Avenue have also experienced serious flooding, Domingo said. “Obviously, the weather is creating a problem for everyone,” he said.

The Huntington Beach bike path that runs for more than eight miles — starting at one end at Warner Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway — is, I think, one of the city's great assets. This summer I was riding round-trips every several days, and each time, whether it was on a crowded weekend or quiet weekday, I felt that the path provided a glimpse of the true Huntington Beach. Snaking along, it never ceased to reveal the great cross-section of locals, tourists, surfers, families and businesses.

I read Chris Epting's perspective on the beach fire issue this morning and I wanted to give you another perspective. I live in Huntington Beach about two blocks from the beach. I am not a "wealthy person" who is trying to keep others from beach traditions. I have asthma, I really do. Smoke from the beach fires is one of my triggers. Exposure to it can push me over the "asthma fence" and put me in the emergency room. During the summers I cannot drive down Pacific Coast Highway with the car windows open.

There's an invasion happening along Pacific Coast Highway between Brookhurst and Magnolia streets. They've come by the hundreds and more are on their way, slowly consuming Brookhurst Marsh and threatening the areas around it. It's the Sahara mustard, an invasive weed that has been in Southern California since 1927 but has boomed in population over the last 20 years, according to the California Invasive Plant Council. It has overwhelmed the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in San Diego and now it has made its way to Huntington Beach.

I will never forget, several years ago, when a friend directed me down to the beach adjacent to about Ninth Street to discover a vital piece of Huntington Beach history. There, embedded in the ground, are remnants of the old train tracks that supported the Pacific Electric Red Cars that started running here more than 100 years ago. My son Charles, a USC sophomore who is working on his first history book (which comes out later this year) had an idea recently based on the Red Car trains.
