  • In The Pipeline: Three generations of tea party tradition

    In The Pipeline: Three generations of tea party tradition
    Back in 1987, there was a picture of Mende Schlendering in the newspaper — this newspaper. The occasion was her 10th birthday, celebrated with a tea on the golf course at SeaCliff Country Club. But more specifically, the reason Mende's picture was...

    In the Pipeline: Making noise over minute of silence
    With the Olympics starting this coming week, I wanted to point out that this year marks the 40th anniversary of the worst day in Olympic history. In 1972, at the Munich games, eight Palestinian terrorists killed two Israeli athletes and took nine...
  • In the Pipeline: A farewell to Country comforts

    In the Pipeline: A farewell to Country comforts
    It is with sadness this week that I report the closing of one of Huntington Beach's most beloved and venerable businesses, Springdale Country. For 42 years, proprietors Harold and Karen Marcus have run a store that is just as popular with out-of-...
  • In the Pipeline: A resurrected Hells Angel

    In the Pipeline: A resurrected Hells Angel
    "A cement-covered marshmallow." That's how Katherine Coones describes her husband Rusty, a 6-foot-5 biker bear of a man who, despite what some might consider to be an intimidating presence, is disarmingly warm and engaging. On Goldenwest Street right...
  • In The Pipeline: Local Babe Ruth footage unearthed

    In The Pipeline: Local Babe Ruth footage unearthed
    I've never seen anything like this. It's hard to fathom. So rare is the view that I don't even want to blink for fear of missing a split second. Did I really just see that? Recently, at a signing for my new book, "Baseball in Orange County," an elderly...
  • 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: Monument to brotherhood

    In the Pipeline: Monument to brotherhood
    The twin towers will soon stand in Huntington Beach. With a little luck and a lot more money, this Sept. 11 will see the unveiling of a remarkable sculpture in front of City Hall. It will feature metallic, exact scale replicas of the World Trade...
  • 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: 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...
