Just look around you. Our schools are overcrowded - or in the case of Castaic High School, not yet built - and students from new housing developments must be bused all over the valley to find classrooms. The huge office expansion proposed for the Newhall hospital complex may not have an adequate sewer trunk line to support it, nor do the nearby streets have the capacity to handle so much increased traffic. The 13-story high-rise ...
Gail Kopp owes me and the thousands of other residents of Tick Canyon an apology for referring to our community as "a dump" ("Park Place to be built in Tick Canyon," June 6, 2008). I assure you I have no discarded tires on my block.
Have you noticed that our lifestyle is changing at a fast pace? Today's millionaires are nowhere near as well-off as yesterday's were. Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day. They are looking forward to the day their wife retires so they can "get out of Dodge," and possibly buy a few acres of land so they can grow their own food and have a windmill ...

This is the first part in a two-part series about being audited by the IRS. I have had several of my tax clients call me recently, with fear and trembling, to tell me that they have received that dreaded notice from the IRS that their income tax return was being audited.

Reading an article some time back I came across a philosophy of life. I don't remember who wrote the article and I am sure I can't remember all the parts of it, but one portion surfaced last Saturday. It was, "Whenever there is a lemonade stand, stop and buy some from the proprietor. That child is going to be running his or her own business some day and they need to be encouraged."

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. Sure, there are plenty of local community colleges and state schools they could have attended, but then they would have to come home every night to live with those stupid cash machines who raised them.

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.
