Bob Kellar: Why Measure S must pass

In just a few days, we will vote on Measure S, the referendum on Santa Clarita's plan for reducing the number of billboards in the city.

Steve Lunetta: Uncle Earl’s voter’s guide

My uncle is a wonderful curmudgeon. He can be crusty, abrasive, and annoying but his opinions are often worth listening to.

Gary Horton: Election season is spookier than Halloween

Ah, election time. Wedged between Halloween and Thanksgiving, elections are an evil mix of the two, where a scary assortment of creatures from the political underworld thank us if we'd not scream and run, but rather treat them with our votes.

Measure S is a socialist power grab by the city

I have watched closely and attended Santa Clarita City Council meetings regarding the digital billboard deal appearing on the Nov. 4 ballot as Measure S, and I have come to understand the "S" may be intended to stand for socialism.

Larry McClements: The price of Measure S is too steep for our valley

As a 28-year resident of the SCV, I could not disagree more with those arguing a "yes" vote on Measure S.

Kevin Buck: The long and short of it

Back in 2012, Mitt Romney was on a mission from God and the GOP to save America and the world from the Kenyan, secret Muslim, fascist, socialist and wimp dictator, President Barack Obama. Mittens touted his business background as a successful vulture capitalist and promised that his White House would help the besieged top 1 percent, just like Reagan and the Bush family had during the Republican glory days.

William L. Blowers: Why I'm voting NO on S

After having read and heard many arguments pro and con on this controversial issue, I have concluded that the entire thing is fishy at best. I am voting against it for several reasons, but my overriding reason is an aspect of the entire idea that I have not heard anyone address. As a retired businessman who operated a very successful manufacturing corporation in Valencia for 12 years, I have some credentials on the subject.

David W. Hegg: The necessity of prizing the uphill climb

Years ago I listened as a world-champion bicycle rider was being interviewed following one of the Tour de France stages. When asked his strategy he explained, "I always try to make up time when going uphill. While most riders are just trying to keep their position, I really press to advance. Of course, it means I have to train extra hard to take advantage of the greatest challenges on the course."

Tammy Messina: How free is our free press?

I have to ask the question, how free is the press these days? Two months after the initial incident in Ferguson, there's still on-going news coverage. Yet there is little mention of Andrew Tahmooressi, the U.S. Marine who accidentally crossed into Mexico and has been imprisoned for 199 days now or the "workplace violence" little over a month ago in Oklahoma where a woman was beheaded by an anti-American Islamic extremist? And then there's the Bowe Bergdahl investigation that's stalled for no apparent reason.

Steve Lunetta: The tempest in a teapot

Do you ever think that some people sit around looking for something to be angry at? It's a little bit like the old man who sits in his front yard and yells at the kids to "hey, stay off my lawn!"

Measure S: Vote No

If you don't want 6 giant digital billboards lighting up the sky 24/7 in Santa Clarita vote No on Measure S.

Measure S: Vote Yes

I sincerely believe had there not been a city council election soon after ordinance 14-02 (billboard deal) was approved by a 3 to 1 council vote, with one member abstaining, this matter would have moved forward with little or no opposition.

The year 2015 started off with a bang last week: from the Republican-dominated 114th Congress taking office and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell claiming Republicans deserve some credit for the robust economic recovery they had nothing to do with; to Gen. David Petraeus facing felony charges from the FBI for leaking state secrets to his mistress.
