    In the Pipeline: Typical Kiwanis Club shows big heart
    Two weeks ago in this column, I wrote about Cherise Sheffner, a local 16-year-old suffering from a rare and debilitating disease called dysautonomia, a dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system. I explained how Cherise's mom, Renee, needed some...

    In the Pipeline: Beanies speak of tireless devotion
    In a yarn shop on Hamilton Avenue near Bushard Street in Huntington Beach, great things are happening. You get a hint of it when you approach the shop and see, out front on a blue plastic table, photographs of soldiers and a red, white and blue beanie...
  • In the Pipeline: Time to stand up to AQMD

    Mayor Keith Curry of Newport Beach has sent Huntington Beach Mayor Connie Boardman a letter. In it, he pitched the idea of agreeing to let his city become the "smoke free alternative" when it comes to beach bonfires, while letting ours assume our rightful...
  • In the Pipeline: Air quality leaders' responses not based in facts

    OK, hot off the presses, grim lowlights from the new Air Quality Management District (AQMD) staff report, published Wednesday, with proposed amended rules for 444, the beach bonfire ban. To anyone that has not quite grasped just how agenda-driven this...

    In the Pipeline: AQMD isn't listening to Huntington Beach
    Right after I spoke at the Air Quality Management District board meeting Friday, several people asked me if I'd noticed what happened during my discussion with Chairman William Burke. I had not. Evidently, the sergeant at arms at the meeting had...

    In The Pipeline: From on the water to on the ice
    My idea of a boat is a kayak, so that is the boat I own. As I tool around Huntington Harbour during spring and summer, I still marvel at the many yachts that dwarf my blue plastic Ocean Kayak, so I was pleased to accept an invitation to ride in the...

    In The Pipeline: Anti fire-ring AQMD member's odd resignation
    The bonfire fight has never been hotter (or weirder) then it is right now. On April 12, I went to visit Assemblyman Allan Mansoor in his Costa Mesa office. I have been in touch with a number of local elected officials about the looming draconian ban...

    In the Pipeline: Essay winner captures peace of local nature
    Last Sunday will long stand out for me as a special one in this city. It began at the wonderful Taste of Huntington Beach celebration, which supports the Children's Library. The organizers of the event were kind enough to have the winner of my annual...
  • In The Pipeline: A sign of the past turns up, along with its delightful owner

    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...
  • In the Pipeline: Tired of AQMD's non-responsive behavior

    People keep asking me whether I think the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) will vote June 7 to ban beach bonfires in much of Southern California. I've been invited to speak before several groups in the last few weeks, and the...

    In the Pipeline: Norma Gibbs has been a jewel for H.B.
    Norma Gibbs' soft laughter blends peacefully with the wind chimes outside her airy and cozy Huntington Harbour home, which is all decorated for Christmas, complete with fresh-baked cookies and tea on the table. She is recounting a moment from 1970, just...

    In the Pipeline: Wyland takes on Surfboards on Parade
    When the famed marine-life artist Wyland unveils a new piece near the pier on Jan.14, he will be just across from the Golden Bear, where he painted a mural more than 30 years ago — before he was known for his building-size whales. Wyland will be...
