  • City Lights: Seeing beyond the visual

    Longtime TV station packing its bags

  • Helping Huntington have fun

    When it's time to retire, it's time to retire. For Huntington Beach's Community Service Director Jim Engle, that time was last year. The Fountain Valley resident did retire, but he never ended up leaving. Instead, he stayed on part time to get the...
  • On Theater: Golden West doesn't have to dress to impress

    Probably the toughest part of staging a farcical comedy such as Golden West College's "Don't Dress for Dinner," at least on opening night, is holding for laughs without disrupting the required frantic pace of the play. The laughs do come thick and fast...
