    In The Pipeline: Anti fire-ring AQMD member's odd resignation

    In the Pipeline: Essay winner captures peace of local nature

    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: 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 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: 'Green' logs, a bonfire solution?

    In the Pipeline: Remember the tragedies too
    I took our dog out at about 11 a.m. Sept. 30 for our usual walk around the block, including the street that runs parallel to ours. We passed a group of young male workers who were in the neighborhood to do some underground work on the electrical system....

    In the Pipeline: Priest makes a difference near and far
    More than 8,000 miles away, in India, a groundbreaking is taking place thanks to someone who lives here in Huntington Beach. Father Angelos Sebastian, who was born in Kerala, India, in 1975, left his home at age 14 to join the minor seminary in the...

    In the Pipeline: Reminder of a great American journalist
    Whenever I see an email from Bob Chatt, I never pause before opening because I know it will be something interesting. I've written about Chatt before. He's the antique military collector in Huntington Beach who had his own reality show and boasts a...

    In the Pipeline: Bartlett Park a blemish on the city
    On a balmy, breezy and drizzly morning, Suzanne Messina-Cervellone walked me around Bartlett Park. The 28-acre park, located just behind the Newland House along Coldwater Lane, is a hilly, rugged and densely overgrown oblong plot that occupies land once...

    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: Time to mark the history of HB
    The La Bolsa Tile Co. The Holly Sugar Factory. The Pacific Broom Co. The Pacific Oil Cloth and Linoleum Factory. And it goes on. These are the ghosts of Huntington Beach. But then there are the actual physical traces scattered all over the city. The...
