Review: 'Post Grad'

The Malbys are just plain nice. That's the only word for them. They're a goofy, strange, California suburban family who love one another and share the same sunny sense of humor and nothing terrible ever happens to them and it's all for one and one for all.

Suzette Martinez-Woodruff: Latina not a liberal?

A particular assumption that I often hear leave the lips of yapping Liberals in California irks me at my core. The assumption is that a Hispanic woman should automatically identify herself as a Democrat because the Republican Party is racist and sexist.

The posse on horseback

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Posse patrols the SCV's back hills on horseback and helps sheriff's deputies with search-and-rescue calls from here to Malibu. Posse members are fixtures in the SCV's Fourth of July parade, and on Labor Day weekend they'll be trotting along Zuma Beach. The mostly civilian group, founded in 1986, is almost all-volunteer. Sworn deputies in the group earn just $1 a year. Each of its 22 members has a horse, a horse trailer and a truck, and must cover their own costs, which can reach up to $10,000 annually.
