The Hornets, a boys Under-10 AYSO Region 56 soccer team, collected three recent shutout victories, two of which came by shutout. Riley Hansler opened the scoring in a 2-0 win over Tsunami by sending a penalty kick into the corner of the net, and Nick Stephens secured the win with a shot off a well-placed corner kick by Hansler. The Hornets' defensive line of Aashik Chela, Matt Abad-Santos, and Tanner Stansbury held off a strong Tsunami offensive attack to preserve the win. On Saturday, Bradley Hansen, assisted by Jordan Luevano, scored off another precise corner kick by Hansler to lift the Hornets past the Big Blue Wrecking Crew, 1-0. Big Blue goalie Chris Voss actually made a nice stop on the ball, but it rolled into the corner of the net. It was the first goal of the season for Hansen.

Jacqueline Kent Struck out 11 and allowed only 2 hits to lead Armed 'n Dangerous to an 8-0 shutout of the Sour Grapes in Huntington Beach Girls Softball 12-and-under Division action.

The onslaught continued in the frame when Jenny Pilecki singled and scored on a hit by Taylor Gould, who later came home on an RBI single by Jasmine Lopez.

Alicia Robinson and Dave Brooks Huntington Beach Sen. John Campbell announced Friday that he will run for Rep. Chris Cox's seat in Congress -- a step that could pave the way for Assemblyman Tom Harman to make his way to the state Senate. Cox is awaiting Senate confirmation after President Bush last week appointed him to head the Securities and Exchange Commission. If Cox is confirmed, the governor will set a special election to fill his congressional seat, which represents Newport Beach as well as Laguna Beach and a number of South County cities.

I always enjoy it when the city of Huntington Beach drags out its oversized Maytag dryers equipped with that special spin cycle. Most dryers come with varieties of drying cycles along with the spin cycle, but criminal defendants, like the city, frequently modify the machine so as to toss the laundry so the dirty side is never exposed. I don't blame city officials for trying to put the best face possible on their embarrassing conviction -- virtually every defendant I've ever met minimized their responsibility, and the city is certainly no exception.

Parking enforcement answer for Southeast I would like to respond to the question of revitalizing Southeast Huntington Beach. The solution is as plain as the 38-foot RV parked across the street from your house. Enforcement of parking laws already on the books would bring in revenue through parking citations and make our neighborhoods more attractive. I live near Yorktown Avenue and Brookhurst Street. Boats, RVs and big commercial vehicles stored on the streets, moved only to the local school parking lots on street sweeper days, is the norm rather than the exception.
