  • An accidental author

    The poet Allen Ginsberg, who liked to work quickly, had an oft-stated theory about writing: "First thought, best thought." Michael Henderson, a Huntington Beach resident who found himself out of a job early this year, never aspired to be the next...
  • Natural Perspectives: Battling skin cancer — and my HMO

    I've been battling skin cancer for the past two months. More accurately, I've been battling my HMO to get my cancer removed. The good news is that surgery offered a complete cure for this type of cancer, and it is now gone. The bad news is that the...
  • Fast friends, thanks to sister cities

    Sam Mahdad has befriended a girl who can't easily keep up a conversation with him. But that hasn't stopped them from becoming friends and learning about each other's cultures and traditions. "To be honest, it's kind of difficult, but we found a way to...
  • In The Pipeline: H.B.'s own field of dreams

    As I write this, it is early Sunday morning, several hours before Ocean View Little League's championship World Series game versus Japan (an interesting coincidence, give that one of our sister cities is in Japan). The teams, of course, are about 2,600...
  • Community Commentary: Anti-business bills will hurt California

    What a difference a decade has made for the once thriving California marketplace. Just 10 short years ago, California was the destination for aspiring entrepreneurs and staple industry names. But misguided politics and burdensome regulations have...
  • City Lights: Thoughts on gunmen, victims and the media that reports them

    City Lights: Thoughts on gunmen, victims and the media that reports them
    It's rare that I remember a magazine cover a decade and a half later, but one that has stuck in my mind — and not in a good way — is the issue of Time from the week after the Columbine High School massacre. Anyone from the class of 1998,...
  • Mailbag: Measure Z not worth the losses

    By now, many people have seen the orange posters around town that say "No on Z." But what exactly is Measure Z? Measure Z proposes the elimination of a property tax that helps to fund the pensions of public employees. Unfortunately for the city and...
  • City Lights: The circus act that is the election cycle

    This just in: The 2012 presidential race heated up last week, slightly, as a pair of new challengers threw their hats in the ring. Some may recognize former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who ran unsuccessfully last time. Texas Rep. Ron Paul, whose...
  • Mailbag: Vote was a win for residents

    Hooray for the Huntington Beach City Council for passing higher fees for developers (Re. "Council approves increase," June 21). Anything that discourages developers from coming to our city is OK in my book. The insane rush to increase densities in parts...
  • Braving crocodiles, injuries

    Braving crocodiles, injuries
    Tom Jones was paddling through a southeastern river this summer when he felt a sudden motion that nearly jerked him off his board. Instinctively, he hardened his stance and tightened his hands around the paddle, which, he quickly realized, a crocodile had...
  • Running on full

    No, they haven't met David Letterman. The members of the Huntington Beach-based band Runner Runner get that question a lot. After all, the King of Late Night played an indirect part in their rise to fame, and a Google search of the terms "David...
  • Tech classes help seniors

    Tech classes help seniors
    Computers are in almost every classroom and many kids are comfortable on one before they know how to read, but that wasn't always the case. Huntington Beach senior Rich Kolander didn't grow up knowing how to send an e-mail, "poke" his friends on...
