    In the Pipeline: Vegan vandalism not kosher

    In the Pipeline: Shopping is the cause
    Nouha Hreish looks perfect in a Christmas hat — running around Wal-Mart at the crack of dawn, helping to organize the warm and loving chaos that is Clothe the Children. For about 25 years, the Kiwanis Club of Huntington Beach has sponsored its...

    In the Pipeline: 'A lovely venue in a lovely town'

    In the Pipeline: Sister City program is worth nurturing
    Ten years ago, the city of Huntington Beach decided to cut all funding for its Sister City program. As you may know, Anjo, Japan, is our sister city. We also have a new sister city: Manly, Australia, which is known as Surf City down under. While I...

    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...
