- Who got it wrong? Yesterday, the Register reported that the HB City Council "voted Tuesday to make Huntington Beach the first city in the state to adopt a program forcing pet owners to spay or neuter and to have microchips inserted into their cats and dogs."

The recommended action bit reads "Motion to: Provide staff with direction regarding drafting an ordinance that requires spaying, neutering, and microchipping for dogs and cats."
