Cameron Smyth: The uproar obscures the issues

In recent weeks, Santa Clarita has been the focus of national news stories over the comments of City Councilman Bob Kellar. I have known Kellar for more than a dozen years and spent six years serving with him on the Santa Clarita City Council.

W.E. Gutman: Strangers in 'paradise'

It is in a genteel, lily-white Connecticut town, where old-moneyed gentry and upstarts coexist in mutual disdain, that I met and befriended six "illegals."

Scott Wilk: Even an imperfect man ought to know the truth

I wasn't feeling the love Valentine's Day morning when I read City Council candidate David Gauny's column ("An imperfect man vs. a well-oiled machine," Feb. 14). Gauny, in his mea culpa for his past indiscretions, made several factually incorrect statements about me, City Councilwoman Laurie Ender and City Councilman Frank Ferry.

We pay the price

I still can't understand the problem with all the illegal immigrants. I'm sorry - they want to be called "undocumented." I seem to remember from the dictionary that the word undocumented means "not having a proper visa." The meaning of illegal is "prohibited by law; against the law."

Live by the law

I read the article on the illegal immigrant day worker ("Facing the border: A day laborer's story," The Signal, Feb. 7).

Laurene Weste: Tough times call for steady leadership

Editor's note: This is one in a series of columns from candidates in the 2010 Santa Clarita City Council race.
