For Valencia resident Tim Howard, there's nothing like being a dad. A dad, in fact, to twin 11-year-old girls. Howard, 49, a self-proclaimed ham, makes a point of joining daughter Victoria in theater - as bittersweet as it may be. And he was ringside at daughter Jessica's horse show last year, although getting around in the rough terrain was a challenge. About two and a half years ago, doctors at UCLA Medical Center didn't ...
"How often misused words generate misleading thoughts." - Herbert Spencer When Santa Clarita City Councilman Frank Ferry labeled as local residents who have aggressively opposed construction projects as "developmental terrorists," everyone lost. Behind his flamboyant rhetoric, Ferry's point deserves serious consideration: that there is a valid planning process developers undertake to seek city approval, and that the process is being undermined by "self-serving antagonists."

Today is Father's Day, and I'm going to acknowledge this day a little differently this year. It's going to be a tough, somber day for our family.

I extended my arms and took off like a bird. I felt elated, freed from the fears of an agitated childhood. I keep revisiting the dream as often as I can. I now strap on a parachute before taking ...
Just when one thought we could not add another weird postscript to the 2010 Santa Clarita City Council race, news came June 10 that candidate David Galvan, already the basis of Internet conspiracy theories about his candidacy, given the similarity of his name to candidate David Gauny, was arrested for allegedly impersonating a police officer.
"The best laid schemes of mice and men, go often askew." - Robert Burns, translated from "To a mouse" The upcoming Saturday of the Memorial Day weekend was going to provide a serious opportunity for some necessary rest and relaxation. The spring semester had dragged on with not enough motivated students focused on General MacArthur's invasion at Inchon, too many close losses on various missed opportunities and too many days of toeing the line ...
Even Steve Lunetta's Uncle Earl is beginning to "get it" ("Steve Lunetta: Blame Obama for the spill," June 14).
As citizens of Santa Clarita facing the same situation of being blamed for elevated salt levels in our water discharge - after becoming the first city in the U.S. to actually ban the sale and use of salt water softeners - we need to be involved right now.
Four weeks ago, I commented on whether or not a good resume meant a good candidate for the job ("Presidential resume," May 7).
In his column today ("W.E. Gutman: To some readers and their 'ilk,'" June 13), W.E. Gutman took it upon himself to attack me personally regarding a guest column I wrote rebutting Gary Horton's column attacking tea partiers.
Here we go again - "1,093 vehicles screened Friday night" (The Signal, Sept. 1).

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
