  • 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: 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: 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: The little airport that was

    In the Pipeline: The little airport that was
    There is a clue on Warner Avenue near Bolsa Chica: a small street that leads into the shopping center where Ralphs is, next to McDonald's, called Airport Circle. Many of you may know what that means, but I'm sure there are also a lot of newcomers that...
  • 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...
  • In the Pipeline: Where the air carries a palpable peace

    In the Pipeline: Where the air carries a palpable peace
    I wish every street in Huntington Beach had a Gwendoline Runyard. She passed away in January at 90, a year after her husband, Bob, but left behind a remarkable trove of memories inspired by the neighborhood where she lived. Runyard wrote in 1955:...
  • In the Pipeline: Sister City program is worth nurturing

    In the Pipeline: Sister City program is worth nurturing
    Ten years ago, the city of Huntington Beach decided to cut all funding for its Sister City program. As you may know, Anjo, Japan, is our sister city. We also have a new sister city: Manly, Australia, which is known as Surf City down under. While I...
  • In the Pipeline: Wet Electric event good fit for H.B.

    In the Pipeline: Wet Electric event good fit for H.B.
    Timing is everything, as they say. I mean, had there not been the recent rioting after the U.S. Open of Surfing, then I'm guessing that the Wet Electric Beach Party may have gone if not unnoticed then at least earned a lot less scrutiny. If you haven'...
  • In the Pipeline: Humble POW downplays his sacrifice

    In the Pipeline: Humble POW downplays his sacrifice
    The Western Union telegram is dated June 12, 1951. It is addressed to a Lillian Roberts in Mankato, Minn. It reads, "The secretary of the Army has asked me to express his deep regret that your son PFC Roberts, Lloyd L has been missing in action in Korea...

    In the Pipeline: Sevenfold still pushing  artistic boundaries
    The line of mainly black-clad fans snaked around the complex last Thursday where Johnny's Saloon is located on Beach Boulevard near Slater Avenue. This was after it was announced that the popular bar would be distributing free tickets to a special...
