Caution: Hazardous artwork ahead

As a frequent driver of the Hasley Canyon roundabout, I have observed that 90 percent of drivers have no idea of the rules or etiquette involved in roundabout usage. Installing one of the proposed pieces of artwork in the center of the Newhall Roundabout is an invitation to disaster, as drivers try to figure out what it represents, rather than paying attention to their driving.

A senior center to emulate

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the Simi Valley Senior Center. This center is state of the art, with modern architecture, and large carpeted meeting rooms. I saw a room filled with computers offering all levels of training. It seemed to go on and on as one hallway led into another. My understanding is this center is owned by the city of Simi Valley. Funds come from the city. Additional funding comes from holding events, including weddings.

History, being in many ways the succinct compilation of humanity's success and failures, has long been recognized as an essential part of any real education. Yet today we are fast becoming a nation that is not only ignorant of its past, but pleased about it.

Alice Khosravy: Role of government on display

Recently, the community of Santa Clarita has been buzzing over potential billboard removals and the possibility of sign ordinance changes. It began when the Metro Group, who owns the land on which the billboards in question reside, approached the city with a proposal to remove every billboard in the Metro (railroad) right-of-way, within the Soledad Canyon Road and Railroad Avenue corridors, in the center of the city. This amounts to the permanent removal of 118 billboards on 62 structures along the Metro right-of-way in exchange for a change to the current sign ordinance that would allow them to build three ...
