    In the Pipeline: Opinions pour in on 'veganized' mural
    Two weeks ago I wrote about the mural that once covered a large liquor store wall facing the McDonald's near the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Edwards Street. It depicted all of the most iconic McDonald's characters. I wrote about how the McDonald'...

    In the Pipeline: Vegan vandalism not kosher
    I wrote about a mural in this column two years ago. It covered a large liquor store wall facing the McDonald's near the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Edwards Street, and it depicted all the most iconic McDonald's characters, from Ronald to Grimace to...

    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: 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: 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...
  • In The Pipeline: The dark days of 1984

    In The Pipeline: The dark days of 1984
    That a terrorist group would choose Huntington Beach not just as a base of operations, but also as ground zero for one of the most cataclysmic attacks in U.S. history, is hard to fathom. Yet as I read the story, it all seemed frighteningly simple and...
  • In the Pipeline: The shadowy face of human trafficking

    In the Pipeline: The shadowy face of human trafficking
    She does not look like a sex slave. Pretty, with coffee-colored skin, looking perhaps 17 years old, she could be a cheerleader, or volleyball player, or a dancer — anything but what is seems she is. But we found her photo online, someone in our...
  • In the Pipeline: Another 'Angel' fallen away

    In the Pipeline: Another 'Angel' fallen away
    Last week, I wrote about my experience going undercover with Greg Reese, president of Clear Image Investigations, a local private detective firm. The 20-year veteran of the Huntington Beach Police Department started his business last May and, since then,...

    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
    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: 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: Airport's charm will not soon be forgotten

    In the Pipeline: Airport's charm will not soon be forgotten
    Some columns just seem to strike a chord. I can tell right away as the emails start to come in when something has truly resonated. Leave it to Meadowlark Airport to unlock so many memories from those who took to the air there, and also those who enjoyed...
