  • In the Pipeline: Pushing for change after tragedy

    In the Pipeline: Pushing for change after tragedy
    This year marks the 40th anniversary of the first manned mission of Skylab, the first U.S. orbital space station. Skylab 2, as it was called, set off to repair the space station, and was led by Cmdr. Peter Conrad. As you probably remember, Conrad was...
  • Authors Fest transforms to four-day event

    The Huntington Beach Library will be holding its 25th Authors Festival, but this year's event will include the newly-created Surf City Kids Book Fest to keep the community's youth interested in reading. Authors Festival co-chairs Sue Welfringer and...
  • In the Pipeline: 'The Wonder Dog' creates big day for 'Up syndrome'

    In the Pipeline: 'The Wonder Dog' creates big day for 'Up syndrome'
    I love talking to former Major League ballplayer and Angels' broadcaster Rex Hudler. "The Wonder Dog" as he is known, just always exudes so much enthusiasm and feel-good energy. He's energetic, spiritual, and seems to spend every waking moment trying to...
  • In the Pipeline: Fountain Valley's own 'War Horse'

    In the Pipeline: Fountain Valley's own 'War Horse'
    The horses arrived in Costa Mesa this week. As you may have heard, the Tony award-winning "War Horse," one of the most lauded stage productions in decades, is opening at Segerstrom Center for the Arts. And playing a key role in the World War I story...
  • Exploring the other Maverick

     Exploring the other Maverick
    Linda Alexander favors an underdog. The 56-year-old Maryland author's intent is to give a fair shake to those who haven't been a staple of the public eye. Hence, the late Jack Kelly, who died in 1992, served her well as the protagonist of her latest...
  • In the Pipeline: Where the air carries a palpable peace

    In the Pipeline: Where the air carries a palpable peace
    I wish every street in Huntington Beach had a Gwendoline Runyard. She passed away in January at 90, a year after her husband, Bob, but left behind a remarkable trove of memories inspired by the neighborhood where she lived. Runyard wrote in 1955:...
  • In The Pipeline: The ghost of the Red Car trains

    In The Pipeline: The ghost of the Red Car trains
    I will never forget, several years ago, when a friend directed me down to the beach adjacent to about Ninth Street to discover a vital piece of Huntington Beach history. There, embedded in the ground, are remnants of the old train tracks that supported...
  • In the Pipeline: Holiday shows that are nostalgic, jaw-dropping

    In the Pipeline: Holiday shows that are nostalgic, jaw-dropping
    So it's that time of year when kids are home and many adults take some time off from work, and in this column I like to call out a couple of nearby attractions or performances that might be a fun way to spend some time over the holidays. This year,...
  • In the Pipeline: Red Cars become part of the ecosystem

    In the Pipeline: Red Cars become part of the ecosystem
    The author Michael Crichton said, "If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree." And so I think he would've been impressed by the many messages I received last week in reaction to my...
  • In The Pipeline: Banning fire rings is overreach

    In The Pipeline: Banning fire rings is overreach
    I did something this week I haven't done in ages. I signed a petition. For a variety of reasons, it's normally not something I do, but when I heard that there was a movement to remove all fire rings from Southern California beaches, I could not resist....
  • HB Reads author visits HB High School

    HB Reads author visits HB High School
    By the time Jay Asher successfully submitted his novel "Thirteen Reasons Why," he had 12 good reasons to call it quits. The author of the young adult novel, which was chosen as this year's HB Reads selection, got a less-than-encouraging response the...
  • In the Pipeline: Something fishy going on with fire ring ban

    The Air Quality Management District's (AQMD) heavy-handed approach of ceremoniously banning fire rings in Huntington Beach (and across Southern California) without providing any specific evidence certainly seems suspicious and even underhanded. But...
