Huntington Beach Beaches:

I'd like to give Huntington Beach Mayor Connie Boardman good wishes on her foot. Hope it gets fully better soon.

Also to another newsletter subscriber who has been sick Judy Buffington of Huntington Beach.

A Very Happy Birthday to the following people. They are: Former Huntington Beach Mayor Pro Tem Devin Dwyer, Sonoma Musician Chris Hanlin, Kathy May's Lakeview Cafe Restaurant Server April May Diaz, Star Real Estate Broker Mitchell Galyean, Long Beach Straight Talk TV Host Art Levine, Golden West Moving Company Owner Peter Yoss, First Team Real Estate Realtor Cyndi Mino and Stella Magentica Jewelry Designer Alison Trowe.

Huntington Beach Police Chief Ken Small's Administrative Assistant Karin Reed Says: April is designated as Sexual Assault Awareness Month, providing the opportunity to raise awareness about sexual assault, rape, and reinforce the need for prevention/education efforts. We need to reach out to the survivors, provide them with resources, tools, or just listen to them and help them on their journey to recovery. We have a duty to remind a survivor that sexual assault and rape are crimes and they did not do anything wrong. Sexual Assault and rape is one of the least reported crimes. Although each survivor must do what they feel is best for them, by reporting this crime, hopefully we can prevent the predator from injuring someone else.

Set aside some time in April to talk to your teen or others about sexual assault awareness and prevention. Ask them to share what they have observed and/or their knowledge about sexual assault and rape. Have them talk about how this makes them feel and how they might handle a situation - or avoid one all together. Most importantly, remind them if they are ever sexually assaulted or raped, 'It is not their fault." Let them know you will be there to support them, how they can assist with the investigation by preserving evidence, and give them the following referral telephone numbers provided by CSP (Community Services Program):

Rape Crisis Hotlines - 24 Hour Counseling: 714-957-2737 or 949-831-9110
Sexual Assault Victim Services for North Orange County: 714-834-4317
Sexual Assault Victim Services for South Orange County: 949-752-1971
For more information please call one of the telephone numbers listed above or the HBPD Community Liaison Unit at 714- 536-5933.

* Teen drivers are found at fault in 66% of ALL FATAL collisions that they are involved in, although they only represent 4% of the state's licensed driver.
* The leading cause of DEATH for Americans 15 - 20 years old is motor vehicle collisions.
* 65 % of teen passenger Deaths occurs when another teenager is driving.

The California Highway Patrol's Start Smart program is a FREE driver safety education class which targets new and future licensed teenage drivers between the ages of 15 - 20 and their parents/guardians. CHP officers will discuss traffic collision avoidance techniques, collision causing factors, driver/parent responsibilities, and seatbelt usage. Our goal is to help young drivers and their parents/guardians understand the responsibilities associated with driving a motor vehicle, show how a poor choice behind the wheel can change the lives of everyone involved, and to reduce the number of teen-related injuries and deaths due to collisions.
Please call and RSVP to reserve your seat.

Huntington Beach Public Works Construction Manager Eric Charlonne Says:

The City of Huntington Beach Bicycle Master Plan Workshop
Yesterday, the City of Huntington Beach and our consultant team from
KTU&A hosted a Workshop at the Central Library to review the
latest recommendations developed as part of the preparation of our
Bicycle Master Plan. The workshop provided an opportunity for
residents and others interested in bicycle transportation in the City to
participate in the review and identification of potential master plan
elements, and also help to prioritize the implementation plan. This is
the second workshop conducted as part of the plan preparation. The focus of this project is to meet the needs and desires of our cycling
community and this is your best opportunity to be a part of the process.
Additional information is available on the project website at . You can also contact the Public Works
Department at (714) 536-5431.

If you have seen the yellow colored notice signs on growing weeds and shrubs around Huntington Beach this is what it means. These are weed abetment notices requiring the property owner to destroy the weeds within a certain time period. They go out annually to property owners who don't clear the weeds. The program is handled by the Public Works Maintenance Division (714) 960-8861 .

Orange County is a great place to live and work and is a vacation destination for people throughout the world.

You can assist the Orange County Stormwater Program, a collaborative effort between the County of Orange, the Orange County Flood Control District and all 34 cities in its efforts to protect our environment. Collectively we can make a difference – The Orange County Stormwater Program recognizes this and knows first-hand that a well-informed and active public is the front line in preventing pollution.
