Sweaters are out in force, pumpkin patches have transformed into tree lots and our calendars are getting very thin, which means that the holiday season is upon us yet again.
Dates to watch
And from the desert of autocracy, a flower of democracy arises. Right before Thanksgiving, Jon Hatami, a deputy district attorney residing in the City of Santa Clarita, with roots in the community that date back to 1983, announced on Facebook that he would seek a seat on the City Council in the April 2012 election.
