    Do you know what inspired the mural? On the car radio in a parking lot off Edinger Avenue near Edwards Street, Rod Stewart is singing "Every Picture Tells a Story." So it seemed fitting to investigate the history of a mural I've seen many times in the...
  • Familiar face leading Vikings

  • Chargers seek revenge

    When Edison and Servite last clashed on the gridiron, that meeting was played in less than ideal conditions. On a soggy night and sloppy field last December at Angel Stadium, the two prominent football programs faced off for the biggest of prizes: a CIF...
  • City Lights: Seeing beyond the visual

    One of my best-kept secrets is that I'm terribly nearsighted. I wear contacts most of the time, but my glasses are nearly a centimeter thick on the outer edges. In two ways, I'm lucky — first, that I live in a part of the world that easily...
  • Land trust taps former mayor

    A local environmental group welcomed new members to its governing body and tapped a former mayor to take the helm. The Bolsa Chica Land Trust, a group dedicated to preserving, restoring and acquiring land in the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, elected former...

    Instructor says 'service without politics'
    Heather Grow would have no trouble reading a council agenda by night and reading "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" by day. The first-time Huntington Beach City Council candidate has worked for nearly three years as an inclusion facilitator for special-...
  • Experimenting with interest

    When 5-year-old Travis McDonald stood up, his chin barely made it over the black countertops of the chemistry lab, and he had to reach his arms all the way up to work on a science experiment. Travis chewed gum as he mixed glue with borax, covering his...
