I enjoyed that. Thanks for posting. I had no idea he helped Huntington Beach get trademarked as Surf City USA.

When I was in my early 20's I got to do an interview for the local newspaper with Dean. Really nice guy. I remember him saying that being a star when he was in high school wasn't such a big thing, with people like Nancy Sinatra in his class.
