Huntington Beach, California
Huntington Beach is a seaside city in Orange County in Southern California. The city is named after American businessman Henry E. Huntington; the population was 189,992 during the 2010 census, making it the most populous beach city in Orange County and the seventh most populous city in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area. Its estimated 2014 population was 200,809, it is bordered by Bolsa Chica Basin State Marine Conservation Area on the west, the Pacific Ocean on the southwest, by Seal Beach on the northwest, by Westminster on the north, by Fountain Valley on the northeast, by Costa Mesa on the east, by Newport Beach on the southeast. Huntington Beach is known for its long 9.5-mile stretch of sandy beach, mild climate, excellent surfing, beach culture. The ocean waves are enhanced by a natural effect caused by the edge-diffraction of open ocean swells around Santa Catalina Island. Swells generated predominantly from the North Pacific in winter and from a combination of Southern Hemisphere storms and hurricanes in the summer focus on Huntington Beach, creating consistent surf all year long, hence the nickname "Surf City".
The area was occupied by the Tongva people. European settlement can be traced to a Spanish soldier, Manuel Nieto, who in 1784 received a Spanish land grant of 300,000 acres, Rancho Los Nietos, as a reward for his military service and to encourage settlement in Alta California. Nieto's western area was reduced in 1790 because of a dispute with the Mission San Gabriel, but he retained thousands of acres stretching from the hills north of Whittier and Brea, south to the Pacific Ocean, from today's Los Angeles River on the west, to the Santa Ana River on the east; the main thoroughfare of Huntington Beach, Beach Boulevard, was a cattle route for the main industry of the Rancho. Since its time as a parcel of the enormous Spanish land grant, Huntington Beach has undergone many incarnations. One time it was known as Shell Beach, the town of Smeltzer, Gospel Swamp for the revival meetings that were held in the marshland where the community college Golden West College can be found, it became known as Fairview and Pacific City, as it developed into a tourist destination.
In order to secure access to the Pacific Electric Red Car lines that used to criss-cross Los Angeles and ended in Long Beach, Pacific City ceded enormous power to railroad magnate Henry E. Huntington, thus became a city whose name has been written into corporate sponsorship, like much of the history of Southern California, boosterism; the Huntington Beach pier was built in 1904 and was a 1,000-foot-long timber structure. Huntington Beach was incorporated on February 17, 1909, during the tenure of its first mayor, Ed Manning, its original developer was Huntington Beach Company, a real-estate development firm owned by Henry Huntington. The Huntington Beach Company is still a major land-owner in the city, still owns most of the local mineral rights; the company is now wholly owned by the Chevron Corporation. At one time, an encyclopedia company gave away free parcels of land in the Huntington Beach area; the lucky buyers got more than they had bargained for when oil was discovered in the area, enormous development of the oil reserves followed.
Though many of the old reserves are depleted, the price of land for housing has pushed many of the rigs off the landscape, oil pumps can still be found to dot the city. Huntington Beach was agricultural in its early years with crops such as lima beans, peppers and sugar beets. Holly Sugar was a major employer with a large processing plant in the city, converted into an oil refinery; the city's first high school, Huntington Beach High School, located on Main Street, was built in 1906. The school's team, the Oilers, is named after the city's original natural resource. Meadowlark Airport, a small general-aviation airport, existed in Huntington Beach from the 1940s until 1989. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 31.9 square miles. 26.7 sq mi of it is land and 5.1 sq mi of it is water. The entire city of Huntington Beach lies in area codes 657 and 714, except for small parts of Huntington Harbour, in the 562 area code. Huntington Beach has a borderline semi-arid/Mediterranean climate changing for the second to the west and south due to its low precipitation.
Although areas such as Huntington Central Park and northern Bolsa Chica fall into the first climate type, thus being the boundary of the cool summer Mediterranean climate on the west coast of North America, except for elevated portions in the southern end of the state. The climate is sunny and cool, although evenings can be excessively damp. In the morning and evening, there are strong breezes that can reach 15 mph. Ocean water temperatures average 55 °F to 65 °F. In the summer, temperatures exceed 85 °F. In the winter, temperatures fall below 40 °F on clear nights. There are about 14 inches of rain all in mid-winter. Frost occurs only on the coldest winter nights; the area is annually affected by a marine layer caused by the cool air of the Pacific Ocean meeting the warm air over the land. This results in foggy conditions in May and June. Construction of any kind on the beach is prohibited without a vote of the people, allowing Huntington Beach to retain its natural connection to
Daniel Amos is an American Christian rock band formed in 1974 by Terry Scott Taylor on guitars and vocals, Marty Dieckmeyer on bass guitar, Steve Baxter on guitars and Jerry Chamberlain on lead guitars. The band consists of Taylor, guitarist Greg Flesch and drummer Ed McTaggart. Over the band's career, they have included keyboardist Mark Cook, drummer Alex MacDougall, bassist Tim Chandler and keyboardist Rob Watson with sounds that experimented with country rock, new wave and alternative rock; the roots of Daniel Amos began to grow out of Jubal's Last Band, an acoustic quartet consisting of Taylor, Kenny Paxton, Chuck Starnes and Steve Baxter, who spent their time performing for Bible study groups and at coffee shops throughout Southern California. In 1974, JLB recorded a demo tape together and lost Starnes and Paxton. Bassist Marty Dieckmeyer and guitarist Jerry Chamberlain were brought in to fill the empty spots. Sometime in the middle of 1975, Jubal's Last Band auditioned for Maranatha! Music and Calvary Chapel in hopes of signing a performance contract.
Another band at the meeting, led by Darrell Mansfield, had a similar name – Jubal. The two bands decided to change their names to avoid confusion. Mansfield renamed his band Gentle Faith, Jubal's Last Band became Daniel Amos. Daniel Amos succeeded in landing a recording and performance contract and recorded their first song for the label in 1975, Taylor's "Ain't Gonna Fight It", released that year on the label's compilation album Maranantha 5; the band released their debut eponymous album in 1976, produced by Pedal steel guitar player and producer Al Perkins. Soon after the release of that album, DA enlisted Ed McTaggart as their full-time drummer. McTaggart had been the drummer for Bill Sprouse Jr.'s The Road Home. By 1977, the band had begun to shed their country sound with the album Shotgun Angel, which took some fans by surprise. Shotgun Angel was half rock-opera. Side two of the LP featured lush orchestrations and a string of rock songs linked together in a way reminiscent of Queen, Pink Floyd and Abbey Road.
Shotgun Angel saw the departure of Steve Baxter and the addition of keyboardist Mark Cook. Cook had been the keyboardist for the band Spring Canyon, which had recorded an album for Warner Brothers a few years earlier with producer Richard Podolor, never released, due to a change in management at Warner Brothers. By 1978, the band had recorded their first rock effort, Horrendous Disc, with help from newly added drummer/percussionist, Alex MacDougall. MacDougall had been a member of another Maranatha! Music band, The Way. Although it was recorded for Maranatha! Music, the album was dropped because of a major change in the focus of the label, they stopped releasing albums by rock and roll acts and instead focuses on children's and praise music. The band shopped the new record around to several labels, ending up on Larry Norman's Solid Rock Records. Solid Rock delayed the release for nearly three years and despite magazine article and radio specials promoting it, the album did not hit record store shelves until a week before the release of the band's newly recorded fourth album ¡Alarma! in 1981.
The long delay led to the departure of MacDougall and Cook, was the subject of a series of articles and letters to the editor in CCM Magazine. From the connection with Solid Rock, Daniel Amos began working with singer/songwriter Randy Stonehill; the band began touring with Stonehill in the late 1970s. DA performed their own set and, after a Stonehill acoustic set, served as Stonehill's backing band for another set; that tour, known as the "Amos n' Randy Tour", became legendary for Stonehill fans. Taylor produced four of Stonehill's albums. ¡Alarma! was the first of a four-part series of albums entitled The ¡Alarma! Chronicles, which included the albums Doppelgänger, Vox Humana, Fearful Symmetry. On the tours that followed each release beginning with Doppelgänger, the band used a full multimedia event complete with video screens synchronized to the music; the stage setup included mannequins, a 3D slide show and actors portraying game show announcers and models for the song "New Car!" More personnel changes occurred during this era as Tim Chandler replaced Dieckmeyer in September 1982.
Chamberlain left in mid 1983. For a short time, guitarist Milo Carter toured with the band. For the first half of 1984, they made Vox Humana. Greg Flesch joined as the lead guitar player in September 1984 for the subsequent tour. Keyboardist Rob Watson joined the band to play keyboards on tour in 1983 and for the next two albums. In 2000, the band released the four albums in a three-disc set packaged together with a booklet collectively titled, The ¡Alarma! Chronicles. Additional material was provided by columnists John Thompson, Bruce Brown, Randy Layton, Brian Quincy Newcomb and others; the band released Darn Floor-Big Bite in 1987. Although Darn Floor was an artistically ambitious and critically acclaimed effort, it sold poorly. In the late 1980s, many of the band members became The Swirling Eddies for a string of releases through the early 1990s. In 1990, D. A. would form Stunt Records, with help from friend Tom Gulotta. One of the first albums released by Stunt was the half comedy, half rarities and best of compilation from Dr. Edward Daniel Taylor, The Miracle Faith Prickly Heat Telethon of Love.
Over the years that followed, Stunt became the primary source for new DA material, including the live albums, Live Bo
Lost Dogs are an American musical supergroup formed in 1991, comprising vocalists and guitarists from multiple Christian alternative rock bands. Their current lineup includes Michael Roe, Derri Daugherty and Steve Hindalong; the original lineup included Gene Eugene, who died in 2000. The band's eclectic blending of folk, blues and rock has been characterized as "a sort of CCM equivalent to the Traveling Wilburys"; the band released their debut album Scenic Routes in 1992 as a one-time collaboration. Lost Dogs concert performances are filled with between-song jokes and one-liners between the band members. Many Lost Dogs albums include two cover songs. Songs covered by Lost Dogs on an album or in concert include Bob Dylan's "Lord Protect My Child", Leonard Cohen's "If It Be Your Will", The Beatles' "I'm A Loser", "The Chipmunk Song", Stephen Foster's "Hard Times, Come Again No More".
