Council is missing the point

I love our city. However, after seeing the outrageous actions at the City Council meeting July 13, I am appalled by the direction we are going. One of the hot issues addressed was the increase in campaign contribution limits to $1,000. Sadly, the council completely missed the point of the unanimous speakers who spoke against this increase. They avoided the real issue while justifying their vote to increase the contribution limits.

Diana Shaw: There is salt on Cameron Smyth’s tale

It was nice to read last week that Assemblyman Cameron Smyth is finally sharing his concerns about our purported salty water ("What we've got here is a failure to communicate," July 13). As he noted, "the staff of the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District and the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board want ratepayers to swallow a 50 percent increase in our sewage rates in order to pay for the environmental review and design of a new $210 million treatment facility. That doesn't cover the construction costs or operations budget."

Tea party and Democrats? That’s ironic

When Republican politicos vote with the GOP issue of the moment, liberals and many pedestrian Democrats declare that the GOP is unthinking and in lockstep. Conversely, when the same politicos do not vote for the GOP agenda, Republicans are critically labeled as unfocused and in disarray.

How to be the most popular dad in the world — and maybe something better

There was a time when I aimed to be the most fantastic and well liked dad in - well, at least our neighborhood. At some point in my fatherhood experience, that was actually a goal of mine - partly because I wanted our house to be the Kool-aid house, the home where everyone wanted to be, and part because I want to be the best at what I did.
