Think of it as "The Bad News Bears" set to Klezmer music. Somewhat like the 1976 comedy film about the national pastime, which starred Walter Matthau as Coach Morris Buttermaker, "The Yankles" is about a washed-up ex-professional ballplayer who makes a comeback of sorts on the baseball diamond. If you watch the trailer to this 2009 independent film made by two brothers from the Huntington Beach area, you might see shades of Buttermaker in Coach Charlie Jones. What's different about this protagonist is that the hopeless players on his team are deeply religious grown-ups with side curls, not bleached-blond Little Leaguers from Southern California who cuss and get into dust-ups.

Cara Hulett's phone rang a little after 10 p.m. on Sept. 25. On the other end, her 27-year-old brother Chris Hulett told her that he had just been in a bad accident. Less than two hours earlier, Hulett told his sister, on his way through the intersection at 6th Street and Pacific Coast Highway in Huntington Beach, he struck 16-year-old Heather Stamm and her boyfriend, 19-year-old Nathan Koontz. Hulett told his sister that he called 911 and then stayed with Heather, talking to her and reminding her not to move so she wouldn't further her injuries.

A Huntington Beach woman who, with help from her boyfriend, killed her mother two years ago and dumped the body into Newport Harbor before running away with him, is headed to prison on a first-degree murder conviction, but still maintains she didn’t commit the crime. Rachael Mullenix, 19, was convicted in July of taking part in her mother’s slaying. Mullenix insisted she was innocent Friday as a judge sentenced her to a maximum of 25 years to life in prison. Her mother, Barbara Mullenix, was found wrapped in a bloody blanket with a butter knife stuck in her eye and floating in Newport Harbor on Sept.

Depending on whether you listened to the prosecution or defense, Rachael Mullenix is either a manipulative killer and a liar who used her boyfriend to help her knock off her mom, or she is the abused victim of her violent beau and only helped him cover up a murder because she didn’t know how else to cope with a shocking act. That’s what jurors now have to decide, as they went into deliberation Monday afternoon in search of a verdict....

The dramatic trial of Rachael Mullenix, charged with the brutal stabbing of her mother when she was 17, came to a close last week with a first-degree murder conviction. But the trial of her former boyfriend Ian Allen looms in the near future, and Mullenix’s jury didn’t find she held the murder weapon. Mullenix is headed to a sentencing hearing Sept. 5; her conviction carries a sentence of 25 years to life. Allen, who Mullenix claimed was the sole killer during her testimony, was initially scheduled for jury trial July 11, but it was pushed back because her trial wasn’t finished.

Luke William Gallup lived in Westminster more than a century ago. Coming here from Springville, Utah, this disillusioned ex-Mormon spent the last few years of his life farming southeast of present-day Beach Boulevard and McFadden. He died in 1891 and is buried in Good Shepherd Cemetery in Huntington Beach. I (Lou) am remotely connected to Luke Gallup. A distant cousin of mine, Ron Gallup of Sacramento, is a great-great grandson of Luke Gallup by Luke's first marriage. I'm related to Ron through his mother's side of the family.

Dave Brooks They had come to enjoy the baby blue skies, eat homemade cookies and make sense of something very terrible. Visitors laughed and smiled as they jumped on one of three bounce houses, played volleyball and occasionally rocked out to the amplified sounds of a local jam band. In between bites of pasta salad and fried chicken, the more than 1,000 people in attendance at Friday's party in Southeast Huntington Beach shared memories -- some happy, others embarrassing -- of 17-year-old William "Cody" Roy, killed in a July 16 car accident just outside of Parker, Ariz.

Eron Ben-Yehuda Marilyn Lord remembers her neighbors Kenneth and Carolyn as a kind, hard-working couple. She had a bubbly personality. He was more reserved. "I keep expecting to see them driving up, but I know that they're not," Lord said. "It's just sad, beyond sad." Kenneth C. Stahl and Carolyn Oppy-Stahl were found shot dead Saturday night in their car parked along Ortega Highway, about nine miles east of San Juan Capistrano, said Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino.
