I have just received an e-mail from Assemblyman Cameron Smyth in which he decries the decision by a panel of judges to release 40,000 inmates within two years to resolve prison overcrowding.

My neighbors, coworkers and I are impacted by the Decoro re-striping and elimination of two traffic lanes to install unnecessary bike lanes, and frustrated residents who have seen the city of Santa Clarita's engineers fix something that was not broken without even consulting with or advising us.

Bike lanes?! Heck, get rid of bikes! What good are they anyway?
I support the new bike lane on Decoro Road in North Valencia.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that there are profound differences between children and adults. I recently spent time with my two-year-old granddaughter and had time to observe her. As I played with her, read to her and watched her, it struck me that within an organization there are substantial barriers between the owner and employees.
What a politicized mess of health care we've made. With Big Pharm and Big Med dollars pulling who knows what levers, America can't get traction on a functional debate about what may be the most important issue facing us for decades.

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.
