  • In the Pipeline: Shopping is the cause

    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: Tired of AQMD's non-responsive behavior

    People keep asking me whether I think the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) will vote June 7 to ban beach bonfires in much of Southern California. I've been invited to speak before several groups in the last few weeks, and the...

    In The Pipeline: A sign of the past turns up, along with its delightful owner
    How strange to be sitting at lunch at the site of the old Meadowlark Airport with the man whose name will be forever intertwined with it. For years I've read about Yukio "Dick" Nerio, who purchased the airport in 1947. But it was his son Art Nerio...
  • In the Pipeline: Essay winner captures peace of local nature

    In the Pipeline: Essay winner captures peace of local nature
    Last Sunday will long stand out for me as a special one in this city. It began at the wonderful Taste of Huntington Beach celebration, which supports the Children's Library. The organizers of the event were kind enough to have the winner of my annual...
  • In The Pipeline: Anti fire-ring AQMD member's odd resignation

    In The Pipeline: Anti fire-ring AQMD member's odd resignation
    The bonfire fight has never been hotter (or weirder) then it is right now. On April 12, I went to visit Assemblyman Allan Mansoor in his Costa Mesa office. I have been in touch with a number of local elected officials about the looming draconian ban...
  • In the Pipeline: AQMD isn't listening to Huntington Beach

    In the Pipeline: AQMD isn't listening to Huntington Beach
    Right after I spoke at the Air Quality Management District board meeting Friday, several people asked me if I'd noticed what happened during my discussion with Chairman William Burke. I had not. Evidently, the sergeant at arms at the meeting had...
  • In The Pipeline: From on the water to on the ice

    In The Pipeline: From on the water to on the ice
    My idea of a boat is a kayak, so that is the boat I own. As I tool around Huntington Harbour during spring and summer, I still marvel at the many yachts that dwarf my blue plastic Ocean Kayak, so I was pleased to accept an invitation to ride in 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: Time to stand up to AQMD

    Mayor Keith Curry of Newport Beach has sent Huntington Beach Mayor Connie Boardman a letter. In it, he pitched the idea of agreeing to let his city become the "smoke free alternative" when it comes to beach bonfires, while letting ours assume our rightful...
  • 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: 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: 'A lovely venue in a lovely town'

    In the Pipeline: 'A lovely venue in a lovely town'
    The Golden Bear closed down in January 1986, though to hang around people who frequented the place, you might swear the dark, cozy, intimate musical venue once located near PCH and Main is still there. People speak of it in such loving and present terms,...
