The Honor Band plays on at Hart High School

During the school year, I wake myself mentally in two ways: reading the newspaper and playing music in my high school jazz and concert bands. The latter lets me artistically express myself, which gives me joy. The former keeps me informed, which - in recent months - has been giving me headaches.

Board approves Antonovich motion to limit unfunded mandates

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich for an investigation to determine whether, by accepting funding from the Federal Economic Stimulus Package, the County will be committed to assume the costs for required programs and services after stimulus dollars have been depleted.

"We want to ensure that accepting these dollars will not lock in County taxpayers for additional spending after the stimulus money is gone," Antonovich said. "We need a thorough analysis of the long-term impact these programs will have on the County budget."

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".

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.
