    In the Pipeline: Many hands make library officially historic
    Think of it as "The little library that could." That is, thanks to the help of some very dedicated people. If you haven't heard, the National Park Service recently listed the Huntington Beach Public Library on Triangle Park on the National Register of...

    In the Pipeline: Time to mark the history of HB
    The La Bolsa Tile Co. The Holly Sugar Factory. The Pacific Broom Co. The Pacific Oil Cloth and Linoleum Factory. And it goes on. These are the ghosts of Huntington Beach. But then there are the actual physical traces scattered all over the city. The...

    In the Pipeline: Pushing alternative power at 93
    "My father worked on the takeoff mechanism for the Wright brothers back in 1906. He was a blacksmith and when Wilbur Wright came into the shop he got right to it." Philip Hodgetts, 93, is at least as interesting as his dad. We're sitting in his...
  • In the Pipeline: A show of heart from Little League

    In the Pipeline: A show of heart from Little League
    The playoffs are upon us. I'm not referring to the NBA or the NHL, though there are some terrific series taking place in those leagues. I'm talking about Little League baseball here in Huntington Beach, where, as the Jeff Pratto-led Ocean View team showed...
  • 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: 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: 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: Meeting emphasizes it is right to let H.B. keep fire pits
    As you may have heard, the South Coast Air Quality Management District is leaning toward a recommendation that would essentially allow Huntington Beach to maintain its fire rings and Newport Beach and Corona del Mar to get rid of theirs. While this is...

    Angels aficionado pens new book
    Joe Haakenson grew up a Los Angeles Dodgers fan. His allegiance was to Dodger Blue. At the time, he knew of but didn't closely follow that other Major League Baseball team one county away in Orange County. Now he knows plenty about that organization....
  • In the Pipeline: Fighting for the love of his life

    In the Pipeline: Fighting for the love of his life
    It's hard to believe that this Friday marks one year. Do you remember where you were when you heard? I was driving back from Los Angeles, on my way to a vigil outside the home of beloved Ocean View High School coach Jim Harris, who would soon die from...
  • In The Pipeline: The dark days of 1984

    In The Pipeline: The dark days of 1984
    That a terrorist group would choose Huntington Beach not just as a base of operations, but also as ground zero for one of the most cataclysmic attacks in U.S. history, is hard to fathom. Yet as I read the story, it all seemed frighteningly simple and...

    In the Pipeline: The shadowy face of human trafficking
    She does not look like a sex slave. Pretty, with coffee-colored skin, looking perhaps 17 years old, she could be a cheerleader, or volleyball player, or a dancer — anything but what is seems she is. But we found her photo online, someone in our...
