    In the Pipeline: Shopping is the cause
    Nouha Hreish looks perfect in a Christmas hat — running around Wal-Mart at the crack of dawn, helping to organize the warm and loving chaos that is Clothe the Children. For about 25 years, the Kiwanis Club of Huntington Beach has sponsored its...

    In the Pipeline: 'A lovely venue in a lovely town'
    The Golden Bear closed down in January 1986, though to hang around people who frequented the place, you might swear the dark, cozy, intimate musical venue once located near PCH and Main is still there. People speak of it in such loving and present terms,...

    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

  • In the Pipeline: Time to stand up to AQMD

    In the Pipeline: AQMD isn't listening to Huntington Beach
    Right after I spoke at the Air Quality Management District board meeting Friday, several people asked me if I'd noticed what happened during my discussion with Chairman William Burke. I had not. Evidently, the sergeant at arms at the meeting had...

    In The Pipeline: From on the water to on the ice
    My idea of a boat is a kayak, so that is the boat I own. As I tool around Huntington Harbour during spring and summer, I still marvel at the many yachts that dwarf my blue plastic Ocean Kayak, so I was pleased to accept an invitation to ride in 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: 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...

    From feminist to banker to novelist
    For first-time novelist A.G.S. Johnson, inspiration struck like lightning and immediately slowed to a crawl. "I was awakened one night, maybe 15 years ago, by this cocky female voice that was so intriguing to me that I jumped out of bed, literally, and I...
