Proper honor and remembrance for the real heroes of our country

This weekend we pause to honor the memory of those who gave their lives in defense of America during our many armed conflicts. Originally proposed and celebrated in 1868, the day was known as Decoration Day. General John Logan commanded that the day was "for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country …" President Lyndon Johnson conferred national holiday status on the day in 1966.

Kevin Korenthal: Regions need to unite against train

Last month, the City of Santa Clarita in partnership with surrounding cities and towns hosted a community meeting to solicit support for an effort to approach the local (not so) high-speed rail alignment issue from a regional perspective. This rally was the result of an evolving set of alignments being proposed for the section of rail from Palmdale to Burbank. The City of Santa Clarita has maintained that since it does not receive a stop it should not be adversely affected by the system.

Byron York: 2016: Yes, it’s early, but pay attention now

It's conventional wisdom that the 2016 Republican presidential race is at such an early stage that the polls don't matter. They're just a measurement of name recognition at this point, some observers say, and the only people really paying attention to the campaign are reporters and hard-core party activists.
