There was a moment last week when I wasn’t sure I would live to write this column. That happened about 1 p.m. Jan. 19, as a tornado began pounding Huntington Beach while I was on my way to an interview at the Central Library. The rain wasn’t much more than a sprinkle when I left the newsroom, so I didn’t think much of driving out into it. I opted to take surface streets instead of the slick freeway, and that was that. Somewhere on Talbert Avenue, that sprinkle turned into possibly the heaviest downpour I have ever seen.

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.

A Pasadena woman is claiming the city is liable for a biking accident that caused her to lose her sense of taste and smell. Janice Campbell, 46, filed a claim with the city Monday, alleging that negligence on its part led to her being struck by a cyclist in a crosswalk in Huntington Beach. A claim is the precursor for a lawsuit. Campbell is asking for an unknown amount of more than $10,000. She suffered traumatic head injury and lost her sense of taste and smell. According to the claim, the street lights were incorrectly timed with an insufficient lag time between red lights for traffic and green pedestrian signals.

Last month, a group of supporters of the senior center wrote in the Huntington Beach Wave that the City Council hopefully “will vote to appeal the case to the Supreme Court if necessary and retain a team of highly competent litigators ... by using all legal and emotional arguments available.” I guess the supporters don’t think much of our city attorneys. Who is going to pay for these outside attorneys? The appeal of the senior center was privately funded.

In years past, John Denver, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Steve Martin and countless other musicians rocked out in the spot where a half-dozen men gathered last Thursday to discuss bringing back a place that impacted all of their lives. Today, the spot holds paintings for sale, a few sculptures and, to the trained eye, an homage to its rock and roll past — framed photographs of the iconic building facade, a ticket stub and a book on its history. “This is why we are here.
