"Informed choices." That is what Supervisor Mike Antonovich says he wants for the people of West Ranch, Castaic and Tesoro del Valle. That is not what they'll be making when they vote Nov. 3 unless a number of things change - and fast.

America has lost its moral compass. Adrift in the sea of Obamunism, and embracing moral relativism with the enthusiasm of a liberal attending his first ACLU meeting, we have become like Captain Jack Sparrow's compass - the needle, rather than pointing in the right direction, points to wherever you want it to go. With the people's deposing of Manuel Zelaya, the leftist Honduran dictator who tried to hijack his country's constitution by staying in office ...
On July 18, my wife and I were victims of a hate crime in the Vons parking lot on Lyons.

If you question New York City's Stop and Frisk policies, you might consider the constitutionality of Santa Clarita's DUI checkpoints. What justification is there for stopping over a thousand cars when there is absolutely no reasonable cause? Just because we have a federal grant, Do we have to spend taxpayer money to cite a single DUI? Some may argue that it takes just one drunk to run over a child, but I'd ask what percentage ...
