  • City Lights: Library found Nemo but needs help finding funding

    Last year — twice, actually — I cried during "Toy Story 3." Yes, I'm not too big a man to admit it. During that last scene, when Andy gingerly passes his childhood toys on to the girl, I pretty much lost it, even though I've stayed dry during...
  • Calendar

    FRIDAY TILL SUNDAY Surf with the Big Dogs The third annual Surf City Surf Dog event takes place in Huntington Beach, with opening ceremonies from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Shorebreak Hotel, 500 Pacific Coast Hwy. A Dog is Beachin' Fashion Show by Dog Is...
  • Greer's OC: Save big on surf brands

    Huntington Surf & Sport is slashing prices the day after Christmas. The doors open Sunday at 8 a.m. at all four Huntington Beach locations. Almost everything in the store (excluding surfboards and wetsuits) are reduced 20% to 50% Sunday through Tuesday....
  • Greer's OC: Digg on these weekly specials

    The new Asian fusion dining spot, Digg's Restaurant & Bar in Huntington Beach, just started offering a weekend brunch, along with weekly specials including Local Love Mondays, where Huntington Beach residents receive 20% off and Ladies Night Wednesdays,...
  • In The Pipeline: Hungry in Huntington

    In The Pipeline: Hungry in Huntington
    It's back this Sunday — Huntington Beach's own gastronomic event for the ages, the Taste of Huntington Beach. OK, so maybe I get extra excited as I'm returning as a judge, but even if I wasn't, I'd still be there to support this exceptional cause...
  • A communal love of fine music

    One note at a time, the Huntington Beach Symphony Orchestra has picked up tempo in its three years of existence. The HBSO took root in Surf City's rich communal soil in February 2009 with a modest goal of performing two concerts that initial year....
  • A sobering math lesson

    A sobering math lesson
    Jesus Lara came to study at the Homework Club after it literally answered his cry. The Huntington Beach resident found himself floundering in the third grade, and not just because of his difficulty grasping math and science. At home after school, he...
  • Natural Perspectives: Photography exhibit filled with eye-catching shots

    Natural Perspectives: Photography exhibit filled with eye-catching shots
    The Photographic Society of Orange County has an exhibit of photos at the Huntington Beach Central Library that features some fine works of art. (Some of my photos are hanging there as well.) There will be a reception at the library gallery from 6:30 to...
  • City Lights: A blessing comes to Oak View library

    There's an old Paul Simon tune called "One Man's Ceiling Is Another Man's Floor." The title sentiment can be taken literally — the song, on the surface, is about squabbling apartment tenants — but it can also be taken to mean that what seems...
  • Greer's OC: Food trucks compete for ultimate glory

    David and Goliath. Spartans and Persians. North vs. South. Good vs. evil. Epic battles have always given us hope, inspired our actions and captured our imaginations. This Saturday, a battle of epic proportions will take place, and although it might not...
  • Natural Perspectives: iCan't get enough of birding apps on iPad

    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'...
  • City Lights: Looking back on an interview with Christopher Hitchens

    City Lights: Looking back on an interview with Christopher Hitchens
    Christopher Hitchens would have been a darn good high school teacher. That was one of my first memories after hearing that the prolific author and columnist had died Thursday at the age of 62. A leftist for years, then an adamant supporter of the War...
