To boost Huntington Beach's sales tax revenue, the city's Economic Development Department and the Huntington Beach Auto Dealers Assn. held a one-day auto sale.

The city and the dealers teamed up to promote the sale, which netted more than $65,000 in sales tax.

Jack Caswell, president of the city's auto dealer association, said more than 300 new cars were sold at the dealership sites.

The city's 12 auto dealerships generate about $2 million in sales taxes a year, officials said, at locations along Pacific Coast Highway and Beach Boulevard.


Artist Tran T. Kim-Trang will explore the recent revolution in underground 'zines at the Huntington Beach Art Center.

The curator and arts administrator will discuss writers and publishers who have created niches for themselves with 'zines--highly personalized publications that deal with diverse topics--often after being rebuffed by the mainstream press.

The event, part of the center's Thursday night lecture series, begins at 7 p.m. at 538 Main St. Admission is $6.
