Four months ago on Jan. 1, this paper announced it had changed hands and that a new group was stepping into the stewardship role of The Signal.
Conflict of interest. It's a huge problem for a public official, public agency or business official.
At a time when nationwide voters are using a flamboyant reality-TV actor to signal that politics as usual won't be tolerated, a little politics-as-usual drama has been played out right here on the Santa Clarita Valley's small stage.
It's true that an argument can be made that on a daily basis we have a responsibility to act in the best interest of our republic. That proposition can be taken further: That as citizens within a community we owe a debt of fidelity to our neighbors, and the payment of that debt is that we participate in all things that could help our communities thrive.

What is the Santa Clarita City Council doing?
Congratulations on the sale of the newspaper. As a long-time subscriber, I sincerely hope you will return to a seven-day-a-week paper rather than a part-time edition.
Over the years, as the left has moved farther left and the right has moved farther right, we voters have watched in dismay as discussions of serious issues in national politics have devolved into junior high school-worthy name-calling sessions, as presidential debates have turned into knock-offs of "Family Feud," as hosting "Saturday Night Live" has become more newsworthy than a thoughtful position paper on a national issue.
There's finally a focus now in our community on the issue of domestic and family violence.
It's hard to imagine two more pressing issues in the Santa Clarita Valley than the education of our children - our future - and that increasingly scarce resource - water - during this fourth year of a Western drought.
