"The Game" format was used, with the top pro surfers and stars divided into separate teams. The surf was pumping in the 3- to 5-foot range, so there were definitely some sets rolling in. Former world-tour great and "Endless Summer" movie star, Pat O'Connell, teamed up with Huntington Beach's former tour ripper Jeff Deffenbaugh, top-10 world standout Taylor Knox, the "Air Bustin'" Timmy Curran, Incubus's lead singer Brandon Boyd and Switchfoot's Chad Butler for the big win.

Tom Titus On one hand, "Stars in Your Eyes," now in its West Coast premiere at the Huntington Beach Playhouse, is an attractive new musical. On the other, it's a throwback to the days in the 1940s when Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney were "putting on shows." Though the show, written entirely (book, music and lyrics) by Chip Meyrelles -- who was in attendance opening night -- is only a few years old, it will thrust its audience, or at least those more seasoned members, back to an era when cotton candy musicals were all the rage.

It was three years ago this coming summer, that Huntington Beach took center stage nationally and internationally, on the youth sports scene. In late-August of 2011, the Ocean View Little League All-Star team (11-12 year-olds) made it all the way to Williamsport, Pa., for the Little League Baseball World Series. Ocean View not only qualified for the tournament, but also won the coveted title. Since that time, the 13 members of that memorable squad have all moved on. Each, now, is in high school, several at the same school, Huntington Beach High, and although not all are walking the halls on the same campus, they all have one thing in common: all 13, are still playing baseball.

If Edward Van Ornum's father were given an option between attending a party or cutting off his hand, he'd probably ask, "Which hand?" Growing up, Van Ornum, of Newport Beach, found that he similarly had little social life. He'd go to school, followed by work and then return home. The pattern would be repeated the next day. Deciding he didn't want to become a hermit, he picked up dance. In the more than three decades since, he's mastered the waltz, foxtrot, cha cha, samba and hustle, and eventually became a teacher, at studios in Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.

Starfish Laguna Beach has hired a new chef since my last visit. He came to work there about a year and four months ago. His name is Marco Romero and he is Venezuelan. I was curious to see what a South American chef would make of this Pan Asian restaurant. Let me say at the start that he is doing a terrific job. A large central bar dominates the restaurant. There are banquettes along one wall with tall stools, a quieter room toward the back and an outdoor patio. The d├ęcor is quite beautiful.

I received a note early this week from regular column reader Ron Terranova letting me know that he enjoyed the article about Jeff Lebow and the Harvest Club of Orange County. He also told me that since retiring he's been doing volunteer work, including delivering meals for the Rodgers Seniors' Center. He told me there was an actor, Ty Hardin, who played cards at the downtown center a couple of times a week. Hardin, as many of you no doubt remember, acted in Westerns and TV shows back in the 1950s and '60s.

Just five months ago, astronaut Chris Hadfield, then commander of the International Space Station, struck an emotional chord with millions of people with his in-space performance video of the David Bowie classic " Space Oddity. " As poignant and stirring as that now famous clip is, and as much as it introduced this legendary Canadian astronaut to the world, to truly experience Hadfield, I think, requires the reading of his remarkable new book, "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth.

Cameron Lew wanted to spend the weekend in New York City. But, alas, Saturday is the day he takes the SAT. Early this year, the 17-year-old filmmaker created "Swung," recently short-listed as an official selection for the first-ever All-American High School Film Festival from Oct. 4 to 6. But the Huntington Beach High School senior's travel plans were stymied by dreams of college. He's not overly disappointed, though. If anything, he's "grateful" that his first love story - depicting two teenagers whose relationship comes to a grinding halt because of an accident - was one of 80 picked from more than 1,000 submissions from 40-plus states, as well as Japan, South Korea, South Africa, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and France.
