  • Shadia: A melting down of prejudices

    Natural Perspectives: Birding in Big Bear more fun than a barrel of monkeyflowers

     Showing 'the face of Islam'
    Before the Huntington Beach City Council meets every other week, someone walks up to the podium to lead a prayer after the flag salute. Prayers in public meetings often end with a phrase like "in Jesus' name," which reflects the country's dominant...

    Groups talk church's demolition, salvation
    The old church building looks forlorn at Warner Avenue and Nichols Street, its windows boarded up and the sign that juts over the sidewalk mostly smashed. From a distance, the structure doesn't give many indications of the role it once played in Orange...

    Natural Perspectives: Losing forests to pests in the East
