When covering breaking news, landmarks help to tell readers where the event occurred. In many cases, the environment around the police tape is hard to distinguish from any other place in a city. In photographer Kent Treptow's picture of the scene of a car chase that ended with a suicide near the foot of the Huntington Beach Pier, at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street, fewer landmarks would be better known. The Ruby's restaurant at the end of the pier and the lifeguard headquarters at its foot give readers a sense of exactly where the events took place.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Dane Williams’ friends gathered Saturday morning to honor his memory at one of the 23-year-old surfer’s favorite spots — off the beach by Pacific Coast Highway, just beyond the waves. Four days after Williams’ body was discovered in a San Diego alley, more than two dozen friends and family members held a “paddle-out” ceremony in his honor. The group ventured into the water near Williams’ family’s home on surfboards, carrying flowers and a wreath, and held hands in a circle as dozens of others watched from the shore.

The Newport Beach City Council will decide Tuesday whether to put in their two cents on a project some believe could create traffic and other problems for its neighbors to the north.
