  • In the Pipeline: Making noise over minute of silence

    In the Pipeline: Making noise over minute of silence
    With the Olympics starting this coming week, I wanted to point out that this year marks the 40th anniversary of the worst day in Olympic history. In 1972, at the Munich games, eight Palestinian terrorists killed two Israeli athletes and took nine...
  • In the Pipeline: Athlete, actress are home again

     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: Vegan vandalism not kosher

    In the Pipeline: Vegan vandalism not kosher
    I wrote about a mural in this column two years ago. It covered a large liquor store wall facing the McDonald's near the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Edwards Street, and it depicted all the most iconic McDonald's characters, from Ronald to Grimace to...
  • In the Pipeline: 'A lovely venue in a lovely town'

    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: Shopping is the cause

    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: Hidden monument to the people

    In the Pipeline: Hidden monument to the people
    Since the New Year starts off with my 300th In The Pipeline column, I thought we'd go back to the beginning for an update. Column No. 1 involved a mysterious landmark, a black, granite tombstone at Springdale Street and Warner Avenue, in the bushes...
  • In The Pipeline: From on the water to on the ice

    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: Anti fire-ring AQMD member's odd resignation

    In The Pipeline: Anti fire-ring AQMD member's odd resignation
    The bonfire fight has never been hotter (or weirder) then it is right now. On April 12, I went to visit Assemblyman Allan Mansoor in his Costa Mesa office. I have been in touch with a number of local elected officials about the looming draconian ban...
  • In the Pipeline: Pushing for change after tragedy

    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...
  • Authors Fest transforms to four-day event

    The Huntington Beach Library will be holding its 25th Authors Festival, but this year's event will include the newly-created Surf City Kids Book Fest to keep the community's youth interested in reading. Authors Festival co-chairs Sue Welfringer and...
  • In the Pipeline: 'The Wonder Dog' creates big day for 'Up syndrome'

    In the Pipeline: 'The Wonder Dog' creates big day for 'Up syndrome'
    I love talking to former Major League ballplayer and Angels' broadcaster Rex Hudler. "The Wonder Dog" as he is known, just always exudes so much enthusiasm and feel-good energy. He's energetic, spiritual, and seems to spend every waking moment trying to...
