The city is inexperienced

We do not believe the city of Santa Clarita can provide better library services than Los Angeles County. We do not think Santa Clarita has the capability to "enhance" our libraries by privatizing them. If the city did take over, we know they would slap another tax on us in the long term to operate the facilities.

Tim Myers: A local library takeover will not be a good thing

I hold a great deal of respect for Darren Hernandez, the deputy city manager and head of finance for Santa Clarita, who recently championed the potential takeover by the city of three Los Angeles County Library branches within the city limits, turning them over to a private library-management company and using potential "incremental" library funds to provide better services to the citizens of Santa Clarita.

Joe Klocko: Criteria for business success

When you think of California do words like innovative, leading-edge and trendy come to mind? A place where new ideas first take root before they become woven into the very fabric of the national culture and industrial base before becoming recognized around the world as being uniquely "American". If so, you may be surprised to learn that in one area, the critical business process of selecting and hiring new employees, California is lagging behind the rest of the country.

Gary Horton: The Buck now stops

Energizer Bunnies keep going and going and going – and for a time, it looked like Buck McKeon would be equally perpetual in motion to those furry little drumbeaters. The man is after all, 75, and still beating war drums while running circles around most of us. Yet now it seems that both Buck the man, and his underlying message of perpetual militarism may be running down, with time well deserved for some R and R away from the military industrial complex.
