The North Huntington Beach Black boys Under-10 soccer team showed little signs of rust from a near four week layoff as they recently captured their third tournament championship of the season. By beating rival Long Beach United, 2-0, in the final, NHB won last weekend's Canyon Hills 2000 Soccer Invitational. It was the fourth meeting of the season between the two teams, and the Black has won all four. The fourth, as the previous three had been, was a down-to-the-wire affair, as Christian Ramirez scored a controversial goal past the Long Beach goalkeeper in the final three minutes, and Esteban Orejel scored on a penalty kick in the final minute.

This is not Katrina. We — Southern Californians, Orange County residents — are not surprised. We’ve seen this before (although, perhaps, not to this degree). We’ve felt the Santa Ana winds. We know about the drought conditions. They — from area officials to the governor to the president — have not denied, delayed or pointed fingers. And most importantly, our firefighters are performing tirelessly and heroically every step of the way. The wildfires that have engulfed Southern California from Santa Barbara County to San Diego County, and which include more than 18,000 acres of scorched earth in Orange County, are, to be sure, a tragedy of epic proportions.

City Council members did not discuss plans to replace Huntington Beach’s city administrator at their meeting this week, but are expected to do so later this month. City Administrator Penny Culbreth-Graft said Friday she had just accepted a job offer as city manager of Colorado Springs, Colo. She was one of three finalists for the position, including the city’s interim city manager. Culbreth-Graft must give 60 days notice to leave, making her last day of work Jan. 2. Her new job begins Jan. 7. City Council members have said they knew for quite some time that she was looking to move on. Culbreth-Graft’s move to the bigger city isn’t for a bigger salary, which will actually drop $16,000 to $210,000 a year in the new position.

It couldn't have been a better report card for City Administrator Penny Culbreth-Graft's annual performance review.

"It just seems that everything is moving forward," she said about ongoing projects in the city, including Pacific City, the Strand and the completion of the first phase of Bella Terra.

After that bang on my noggin two weeks ago, I felt I deserved a getaway. Vic agreed. We had never stayed at the historic Julian Gold Rush Hotel, so off we went for a weekend of old-fashioned relaxation. Julian, as most of you probably know, is a tiny San Diego County mountain town that time forgot. Main Street is about four blocks long. The town is pretty quiet during the week, but on weekends, the wooden sidewalks quiver under the weight of all the tourists standing in line in front of one of the bakeries for a slice of one of Julian’s famous apple pies.

When Bill Sharp formed the Sumatra Surfzone Relief Operation earlier this year in response to the deadly South Asia tsunami, he figured he'd use his resources again after another coastal disaster. He just didn't think he'd be back in action so soon -- and so close to home. "We said there was no way this would ever happen in the United States. And then, boom, it happened," said Sharp, who organized the aid trip to Indonesia in January. "Who would have thought the two greatest coastal disasters in recent history would happen in a span of a few months?"
