  • 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: 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: A resurrected Hells Angel

    In the Pipeline: A resurrected Hells Angel
    "A cement-covered marshmallow." That's how Katherine Coones describes her husband Rusty, a 6-foot-5 biker bear of a man who, despite what some might consider to be an intimidating presence, is disarmingly warm and engaging. On Goldenwest Street right...
  • In The Pipeline: Local Babe Ruth footage unearthed

    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: A pop legend sails in

    In the Pipeline: A pop legend sails in
    There's a concert I'm looking forward to nearby in Laguna Beach this Saturday. Thirty years ago, it was seemingly everywhere: the earnest, feathery voice of a soft-spoken Texas balladeer, Christopher Cross. The charts back then featured a galaxy of stars...
  • In the Pipeline: Fighting for the love of his life

    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: 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

    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...
