  • In the Pipeline: Pushing alternative power at 93

    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: No simple way to help the homeless

    In The Pipeline: No simple way to help the homeless
    Beach and Edinger. Warner and Gothard. Heil and Bolsa Chica. At more and more intersections, I notice them, growing in numbers. Do you? They are the forgotten and the fringe. The homeless and the hustlers. Some beg for money. Some just wander aimlessly....
  • In the Pipeline: Kids quiz the author

    In the Pipeline: Kids quiz the author
    For me, the best part about being an author is the chance to go to schools and not so much talk to kids (though I love doing that), but hear their questions. As good or better than any interviewer that will sit down to talk with you, kids seem to cut...
  • 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: 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: Hidden monument to the people

    In the Pipeline: Hidden monument to the people
    Since the New Year starts off with my 300th In The Pipeline column, I thought we'd go back to the beginning for an update. Column No. 1 involved a mysterious landmark, a black, granite tombstone at Springdale Street and Warner Avenue, in the bushes...
  • 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: Journey through Hollywood to H.B.

    In the Pipeline: Journey through Hollywood to H.B.
    When I walk at the Bolsa Chica wetlands I rarely wear a watch. That's because of the fire station located across from where I park at Warner Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway. There's a large sundial on the side of the building and so that's how I...
