Research and dispel the myths

I would be interested to know how this peaceful valley came to the attention of that vigilante group, the Minutemen. Were they invited here by City Councilman Bob Kellar, or did he just fall in behind their militant agenda to scapegoat and place blame on hard-working victims of a bad situation?

The end of America?

Horton, that must be satire

I had to respond to Gary Horton's column today ("It's what you don't see that matters most," March 3), in which he says that the fact that the major news media aren't reporting any "bad news" about Obama's presidency means that we're all enjoying the "benefits" of "hope and change."

I think back to a personal story told to me by a friend who works in the financial industry. Intrinsic to this story is that my financier friend is black and grew up in South Los Angeles. That makes his life experience much different than the majority of the Santa Clarita Valley.
