     In the Pipeline: Athlete, actress are home again
    A couple of timely homecomings I thought I'd make you aware of — that of an athlete and also an actress. Glenn Parker graduated from Edison High School in the mid-1980s. After playing football for the University of Arizona, he was drafted as a...
  • 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: Pushing for change after tragedy
    This year marks the 40th anniversary of the first manned mission of Skylab, the first U.S. orbital space station. Skylab 2, as it was called, set off to repair the space station, and was led by Cmdr. Peter Conrad. As you probably remember, Conrad was...

  • 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: Banning fire rings is overreach

    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

    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: 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:...
