  • 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: A pop legend sails in

    In the Pipeline: A pop legend sails in
    There's a concert I'm looking forward to nearby in Laguna Beach this Saturday. Thirty years ago, it was seemingly everywhere: the earnest, feathery voice of a soft-spoken Texas balladeer, Christopher Cross. The charts back then featured a galaxy of stars...
  • In The Pipeline: The ghost of the Red Car trains

    In The Pipeline: The ghost of the Red Car trains
    I will never forget, several years ago, when a friend directed me down to the beach adjacent to about Ninth Street to discover a vital piece of Huntington Beach history. There, embedded in the ground, are remnants of the old train tracks that supported...
  • 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...
