Gary Horton: Get by with a little help from our friends

Dangling at the end of your rope isn't the kind of thing that makes for much fun. This past Sunday, that's exactly how 10 boat guests and I found ourselves, as my boat twisted and pulled against wind and waves, dead in the water, forced-anchored without power a mile offshore from Channel Islands Harbor.

Lunetta delivers again with "The cultural tie that binds us together" (July 12). If we can believe Mr. Lunetta, and I do, invited a young, African exchange student and characterizes her political views as "claptrap." I guess Lunetta's melting pot only goes so far.

5 life lessons

I'm a little over 6 months away from turning the big 3-0, and I've taken a lot of time to ponder on these last 10 years and what lessons I've learned, trials I've overcome and how I have changed overall as a person.

Through all of this I've learned a little about life and a lot ...
