Two floats from The OC won awards at the Rose Parade this year 2009. A rolling swimming pool from Mission Viejo and Making a Splash, Huntington Beach’s centennial recognition float, were chosen  by Rose Parade judges for two of the Rose Parade’s 24 awards.
What a way to celebrate the centennial of Huntington Beach. We won the coveted Mayor’s Award for our Surf City USA-themed float! Congratulations Huntington Beach, and Happy Birthday. Huntington Beach won the Mayor’s Award for its “Surf City USA”  float celebrating Huntington Beach’s city 100th anniversary celebration. The award is given
to the most outstanding city entry, national or international. The winners were announced this morning by the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association. Cloris Leachman was the Grand Marshall for the 2009 Tournament of Roses Festivities. You can vote for HB’s best, by logging onto to cast your vote from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. In a popularity category, a winner will be announced Friday morning during the KTLA Morning News.

    Breaking News from the Local News. We received the list of celebrity deaths for the year 2008. Near and dear to Huntington Beach hearts, Ellen Dunn, passed this year. The city employee always brought sunshine to each event she attended. Funny, fun and giving, we miss you Ellen Dunn!

    Another year of Celebrity Deaths from 2008 includes an incredible line-up of great actors and celebs you may have missed seeing obits about during your busy times. Or maybe there were too many. Among them were January 17 - Bobby Fischer, world class chess champion, age 64; January 19 - Suzanne Pleshette,actress (”Bob Newhart Show” ), age 70 ; June 2- Bo Diddley, musician, age 79; and  December 25 - Eartha Kitt, Singer, age 81
