Is Drew Kovacs a wannabe Tim Geddes? His letter ("Tim Geddes for City Council?" Mailbag, Sept. 6) would suggest that his envious carping might conceal some personal agenda of his own. I personally don't have one, but if sticking up for the community or...
Congratulations are in order to Mayor Don Hansen and the other four city councilmen who voted in January of this year to lift the ban on the sale and use of "safe and sane" fireworks in the city of Huntington Beach. I know this is going to be...
I completely disagree with the proposed changes to take a meat cleaver to City Council compensation ("Council talks of cutting benefits," July 5). Councilman Keith Bohr, in his usual high-handed manner, proposed changes that will not affect him or any...
The Huntington Beach City School District wants to sell part of its property to a home developer that would "help pay for a new headquarters" ("School site up for discussion," July 19). The district is currently using the LeBard site as its headquarters....
Reading about the Muslim custom of praying five times a day in Mona Shadia's "From 50 prayers a day to 5" (Unveiled: A Muslim Girl in O.C., June 28) I found something common between Islamic custom and Zarathushti (Zoroastrian) tradition. Over 4,500 years...
A couple of days ago, I received a political flier from Troy Edgar, who is running for the state Assembly. On the back of the flyer were endorsements from Republicans. The first name cited was that of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. In his 22-plus years in...
I had the great pleasure of being a good friend of Noble Waite during the 35 years I lived in Huntington Beach ("Noble Waite dies at age 87," June 14). Many times, I sought his advice on issues involving the city. I served as a city councilman from 1968...
Almost always, I read Mona Shadia's columns with bemusement and incredulity. Her mixture of Islamic religious advocacy and sheer na´vetÚ is mostly harmless drivel, like the rest of what is printed in the Independent. Yet what she writes and how she...
There are so many lies that get circulated online about Islam that are sometimes printed and repeated as if they're facts. Some of them really amuse me, especially the one about how Muslims believe in the "Moon God, Allah." We know Allah is Arabic for...
Something amazing is happening. Something I only dreamed about and thought it would always remain a dream. For the first time in Egypt's thousands of years of existence — a history marked with glory and failures — its citizens are deciding...
There's been a storm of controversy in the Arab and Muslim community over a recent Foreign Policy magazine article. The essay, "Why Do They Hate Us?", outlines the atrocities many Arab women suffer at the hands of men. In short, the writer posits that...
Even though I wasn't born or raised here, there's a reason I feel at home in America. America's principles align with Islam's teachings. In fact, America's principles are not just based on Judeo-Christian values, but Judeo-Christian-Islamic values. After...
