    I bought myself an iPad 2 about three weeks ago and became instantly addicted. I should point out that Vic and I are long-time PC people, not Apple people. Well, we used to be anyway. Vic switched his desktop computer from a PC to Mac this year, so he'...

  • Mailbag: Measure Z not worth the losses

    By now, many people have seen the orange posters around town that say "No on Z." But what exactly is Measure Z? Measure Z proposes the elimination of a property tax that helps to fund the pensions of public employees. Unfortunately for the city and...
  • Mailbag: Doing the math on LeBard

    Along with school boards urging approval of new funds through Proposition 38, you'd think they would be frugal with the funds they already have — but not the Huntington Beach City School District board. For the last 18 months, they have expended...
