Harman, a former Huntington Beach mayor and councilman, served ably in the Assembly, albeit in the minority party. As a centrist Republican, he learned to work well with the Democrats, who control the Assembly, and he was able to push legislation through that improved safety standards on playground equipment and made it easier to dispose of personal property in wills.

A man hit by a white sport utility vehicle outside a Newport hospital early Sunday remains in critical condition a day after undergoing surgery Tuesday, authorities said Wednesday. Police said the man was hit tending to a disabled vehicle off Placentia Avenue and Hospital Road just before 2 a.m. Sunday. Initially, police had only a vague description of car that hit him, but have since released a more detailed idea of what kind of SUV they’re looking for. Police said the white SUV involved was possibly a 1996-2001 Ford Explorer four-door SUV or a white 1997 Mercury Mountaineer four-door SUV. The car is probably missing the right front turn signal assembly and may have additional damage to the right front end of the vehicle, including to the headlight assembly and grill.
