  • In The Pipeline: Mrs. Greer saves the good old days

    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: 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: 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: 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: 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
    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: Author touches all the bases
    "H.B. Champion Standards Win 3 to 2! Fastest Game of Baseball Witnessed Here! 2000 See Game! Gate receipts over $609!" So trumpeted the local headlines one summer day in the late 1920s after a ballgame in Huntington Beach. For many fans, baseball...

    In the Pipeline: A sign of the (bygone) times
    While I was driving down Bushard Street in Fountain Valley recently, just after crossing Talbert Avenue, something caught my eye near the Taco Bell parking lot — a small, square-shaped green sign fixed to a metal post. What drew my attention were...
  • In The Pipeline: Ten years later, her joy lives on

    In The Pipeline: Ten years later, her joy lives on
    "The hardest things are questions about the time — about what she endured in the last eight, 12 hours. He has admitted to nothing. And that is hard because the imagination is worse than any reality — and then there is the place where she was...
