    Many Americans on Sept. 11 paid tribute to the servicemen and women who have fought in the past decade's wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This Sunday, the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks will have passed, but U.S. troops will still...
  • World View: An emotional return to the twin towers

    City Lights: Looking back on an interview with Christopher Hitchens
    Christopher Hitchens would have been a darn good high school teacher. That was one of my first memories after hearing that the prolific author and columnist had died Thursday at the age of 62. A leftist for years, then an adamant supporter of the War...

    The 9/11 memorial may have found its home in the Huntington Beach Civic Center after council members approved the location Monday night. Other viable locations were addressed, such as Pier Plaza and the corner of Utica Avenue and Main Street. But in a...
  • 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...

    City Lights: 'Blessing' is faith at its finest
    Everyone has questions they hate to be asked. High on my list is, "Are you religious?" I dread it especially if I sense that a "no" answer will prompt a barrage of other questions, some of them rhetorical. Usually, in those circumstances, I say something...
  • From North Korea to Main Street

    From North Korea to Main Street
    Soon after the tragic events of 9/11, artist Gary Simpson was inspired to create a large conceptual piece combining cement with soil from every member state of the United Nations. He called the project "Common Ground 191." He relied on volunteers and...
  • Mailbag: This year's Fourth was true independence day

    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...
  • A towering effort

    A towering effort
    Patrick Vogel never saw the World Trade Center outside of photographs, and he didn't know anyone who died on9/11. But as far as the Long Beach artist is concerned, he has a connection — a slight, geographical one — to the terrorist attacks...
