Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Discarded shopping carts, considered eyesores, will be retrieved from streets at city expense starting in January, a city official said. On a daily basis, about 30 carts can be found along the streets, said senior planner Mike Strange said. Most come from markets that hire private companies for retrieval, but they take too long, sometimes five days, to pick them up, he said. Meanwhile, residents call City Hall to complain.

Diane Lenning's ties to Huntington Beach are three generations deep, and growing up on the edge of the Pacific Ocean is something she believes had a hand in shaping what she has become today. The Surf City native will be on the June 6 primary ballot for state Superintendent of Public Instruction, and she hopes the Huntington Beach educational system she went through can be a model for cities statewide. The candidate grew up surfing the waters around the pier, roller-skating along the city's streets and swinging through the trees in a small forest near Utica Avenue.
