Jackson would give Dems majority in Senate

They say that insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. If this is true, why would we send another tax-and-spend liberal to Sacramento?

Snowbound: Escaping the SCV

When my teenage daughter, Brandie, called Wednesday and told me our car had a "snow 'fro" from snow piling up on its rooftop, I didn't believe her. Like most Southern Californians, my husband Vince and I commute to work. We knew when we left our high desert home in Pinon Hills Wednesday morning we'd likely get trapped in sunny Santa Clarita.
