    Arts Year in Review: Highlights on the cultural scene
    With Nike departing the U.S. Open of Surfing, contentious City Council elections and those Mitt and Barack guys grabbing headlines, it was a busy year for news — and the arts proved to be no exception. We could try to order this into a...

    Former curator takes in a new view
    Darlene DeAngelo has traveled many places over the last dozen years: Cuba, Vietnam, Europe and wherever the freeway would take her during her impassioned 12-hour workdays. Now, the former curator of the Huntington Beach Art Center is embarking on a...
  • Phony photographer asked teen girls to play dress up, police say

    A man who posed as a professional photographer in an effort to lure teenage girls has been arrested on suspicion of intent to commit a sexual offense with a minor, police in Fullerton said. Coopy Boyer, 42, of San Jose, told a pair of teenage girls he...
  • City Lights: The funniest man in the county

    City Lights: The funniest man in the county
    The following column is very funny. At least, it better be. A prize-winning comedian helped me write it. The other week, an email landed in my inbox declaring that Mark Schumacher, a high school teacher who lives in Trabuco Canyon, had trounced the...
  • From North Korea to Main Street

    From North Korea to Main Street
    Soon after the tragic events of 9/11, artist Gary Simpson was inspired to create a large conceptual piece combining cement with soil from every member state of the United Nations. He called the project "Common Ground 191." He relied on volunteers and...

    In the Pipeline: Opinions pour in on 'veganized' mural
    Two weeks ago I wrote about the mural that once covered a large liquor store wall facing the McDonald's near the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Edwards Street. It depicted all of the most iconic McDonald's characters. I wrote about how the McDonald'...

    In the Pipeline: Vegan vandalism not kosher
    I wrote about a mural in this column two years ago. It covered a large liquor store wall facing the McDonald's near the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Edwards Street, and it depicted all the most iconic McDonald's characters, from Ronald to Grimace to...
  • City Lights: Art didn't deserve butchering

    City Lights: Art didn't deserve butchering
    Two of my greatest passions had a nasty scuffle recently in Huntington Beach. Animal rights won on the street, while artist rights scored a knockout in the media. At times like these, it smarts to be in the middle. For those who missed Chris Epting's...
  • Natural Perspectives: Memoirs of a wildlife photographer

    Natural Perspectives: Memoirs of a wildlife photographer
    Last week, Vic and I wrote about my recent visit to Yellowstone National Park. The reason I was in that area was to attend a wildlife photography workshop in Grand Teton National Park. The workshop was sponsored by a photography group called the...

    In The Pipeline: A sign of the past turns up, along with its delightful owner
    How strange to be sitting at lunch at the site of the old Meadowlark Airport with the man whose name will be forever intertwined with it. For years I've read about Yukio "Dick" Nerio, who purchased the airport in 1947. But it was his son Art Nerio...

    Through a glass, backward
    From a distance, they appear to be expressionist paintings of musicians and marine life. But upon closer inspection, light reflects off the dual-pane window and exposes a crisp image — looking as if it were a print on glossy paper. Huntington...

     Court fight has happy ending
    After settling a lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister Co., Robb Havassy ended up with 365 surfboards. Ever since then, he's set out to diminish that number. On Thursday, he'll be raffling off 150 of the boards in Huntington Beach. Sixteen...
