From Huntington Beach City Councilman Patrick Brenden... In recent years, my wife and I have had the opportunity to travel frequently to New York City where our kids have been attending Pace University. We are happy that both have now graduated and are grateful that both are fully employed. During our many trips to NYC, I have been appalled by the conditions of roads and sidewalks. This is especially true in the suburbs, most notably in Brooklyn where my kids are living. Traffic congestion is horrible, street lights aren’t syncronized and the lack of left turn and right turn lanes means that traffic is constantly stop and go with impatient motorists swerving between lanes to try and save a few precious seconds. Not only is this situation frustrating, it is also unsafe. And, crumbling sidewalks certainly create their own brand of a public safety hazard as evidenced by the frequency of trip and fall incidents. All of this makes me grateful for what we enjoy in Huntington Beach as a result of a well managed local government where our Public Works Department does a great job of deploying its limited budget in a manner that ensures our safety on our streets and sidewalks. Thank you to the hard working folks of the Huntington Beach Public Works Department.

Attention Huntington Beach Residents. Lamppost Pizza at: 7071 Warner Avenue is no longer there. The shopping center has new management and they want to take the center in a new direction, which we were told does not include local businesses or local chains. Their focus will be on national chains and they were unwilling to extend their lease. Lamppost had been in that location for more than 35 years. They are planning on relocating to another location locally. You can e-mail them to keep Informed at: .

Use and save money where you shop Locally. You can save money from Balboa BBQ, The Cake Box Pastries, Crunch HB Gym, Shoe Repair, Mumbi's Designs, Action Carpet Care, Sentry Pest Management and The Surf City Store.
