  • In the Pipeline: After theft, a sweet recovery

    In the Pipeline: After theft, a sweet recovery
    One of the coldest cases on record has been solved. Call it "justice served, a la cart." Back in May, I wrote about Mike Guidicianne, the 34-year-old Boston transplant/entrepreneur who owns and operates Orange County Slush here in Huntington Beach....
  • In the Pipeline: 405 impacts another set of wheels [updated]

    In the Pipeline: 405 impacts another set of wheels [updated]
    Costa Mesa Mayor Eric Bever wrote a strong editorial in the Daily Pilot last week calling out the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) for its "audacious scheme" that would "use billions of Measure M2 freeway congestion-improvement tax dollars to...
  • In The Pipeline: A week of ducks and dribblers

    In The Pipeline: A week of ducks and dribblers
    Next week, we're fortunate to have not one but two special author appearances at Barnes & Noble at Bella Terra. At 7 p.m. Sept. 18, Martin J. Smith, editor-in-chief of Orange Coast magazine, will discuss and sign his new book, "The Wild Duck Chase:...
  • In the Pipeline: Miracle at hole No. 6

    In the Pipeline: Miracle at hole No. 6
    I can never again drive past hole No. 6 of Meadowlark Golf Club (on Heil Avenue between Graham and Springdale streets) without thinking about Bradley Smith. At Mass at St. Bonaventure several weeks ago, Father Angelos Sebastian (whom I've written about...
  • Not afraid to talk suicide

    Not afraid to talk suicide
    Jay Asher was never involved in bullying in school, either as a victim or a perpetrator. At least, he thinks he wasn't. But after the emotional journey the author went through in crafting his young-adult novel, "Thirteen Reasons Why," he can't entirely...
  • In The Pipeline: Two trees grow in Huntington

    In The Pipeline: Two trees grow in Huntington
    There are many palm trees in Huntington Beach, but few as meaningful as the pair of graceful and slender Mexican fan palms that scrape the sky just several blocks from the ocean on Eighth Street. Like the house they sway in front of, they date back to the...
  • In The Pipeline: Mrs. Greer saves the good old days

    In The Pipeline: Mrs. Greer saves the good old days
    Last week, I wrote about Leroy Jauman after we visited the home on Eighth Street where he was born, the abode with those two tall, slender palm trees in front of it. His dad, Andy, planted those trees in honor of his son Leroy's birth back in 1924, and...
  • 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...
  • 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...
