I will never forget stopping into the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Department several years ago to discuss an issue with a planner. She told me she didn't have time to talk because she and another planner were due in Supervisor Michael Antonovich's office shortly for their weekly planning briefing, but I could join them on the walk through the basement tunnel to his office to talk, if I wanted to.
Your editorial ("Look out for criminally misleading junk mail," Feb. 28) was a masterpiece of innuendo and character assassination, a triumph of fiction over fact.
This is going to be a very historic political year. Political campaigns will be the most divisive, dirtiest and destructive. It's all about power. And to get one to vote, the playbooks for both parties will be used. Here are samples of "fear tactics" used in past elections. The Democrats have claimed in past years that seniors on Social Security will lose it if Republicans are in power. No senior has lost any Social Security ...

LOS ANGELES -- The Santa Clara River is the last major wild river in Southern California. It provides its neighboring cities with drinking water and it irrigates rich farmland as it meanders 116 miles from the San Gabriel Mountains near Acton to the Pacific Ocean at Oxnard, CA. But it is a lethal combination of public apathy and corporate greed that could kill this preeminent ecosystem. Well over 38 endangered and threatened species inhabit the river, its watershed and tributaries.

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 ...
Our President Barack Obama is asking the Congress' vote. It's legitimate. If we have the proof that Syria killed children and adults with chemical weapons don't we have to intervene? I understand this time France would be our ally if we decide to save lives.
Junior and Missy's parents are driving them 12 hours away from their hometown to The University of Getting Out of My Parents' House.
