Growing up, I heard my parents talk often about certain actions being "common courtesy."

Scott Wilk: A missed opportunity

Gov. Jerry Brown keeps declaring the "California Comeback." Whether I talk to small business owners, students or seniors, no one else shares that view.

Jonathan Kraut: A well-funded government

It is with great concern that I am writing about the demands the tea party, Libertarians, and the conservative wing of the Republican Party call "ending big government."

Fix for global warming is not either/or

For several decades, climate scientists have been amassing a vast amount of evidence that we are in an unprecedented period of global warming, all life forms on this planet are in extreme danger, and humans bear the greatest responsibility for producing the greenhouse gases at the heart of the problem.

David Hegg: Leaders who put their fingers in the wind

We've all heard of leaders who put their fingers in the wind to determine which way the political breeze is blowing before deciding what to do. And while this smacks of pragmatism, it also describes one theory of ethical behavior.

Amer Aziz: Honoring the lives we lost

On this anniversary of 9/11, it seems there is more to be concerned about now than to alleviate us from the wounds inflicted 13 years ago.

Dilyse Diaz: I could have done something differently

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week. Locally, suicide has been a prevalent topic in Santa Clarita for several months now, and with good reason.

Gary Horton: The coolness of “And then what?”

It so happened that this last Friday, Carrie and I had a chance to visit the Stonehenge site in England. Stonehenge is, of course, that ancient collection of giant stone pillars all arranged in a wide circle about half a football field wide standing all alone in a vast expanse of farmland in the middle of nowhere.

Kevin Buck: A tale of two cities

We have recently seen illustrative reactions to behavior by Americans with perceived grievances against the government, first in the aptly named Bunkerville, Nevada, and then in Ferguson, Missouri.

David Hegg: Picking up pennies and letting dollars float by

There is an old statement that goes like this: "He's picking up pennies and letting the dollars float by." It refers to the tendency of some to pay attention to little things while the big things escape their notice.

Maria Gutzeit: Nature: teacher extraordinaire

Did you get out this summer? "Out" as in outside in some of the great natural areas in the West.

David Hegg: Get ready, elections are coming!

With just over two months until the mid-term elections in November, it's time to talk about voting choices. No, I won't be endorsing candidates, issues, or parties. What I will do is suggest some strategies for getting factual information and making wise choices before you enter the voting booth.

Tammy Messina: Not a state problem

Three million dollars. It's a drop in the bucket for a $100-plus-billion budget.

Steve Lunetta: How to deal with police per Earl

"I just don't get it!" Being on the receiving end of many of my Uncle Earl's tirades, I am now familiar with the lead-in to one of his standard diatribes.

Tina Dupuy: Tale of two Christmases

Last Saturday, I found myself sharing a New York City subway train with protesters from the Millions March and drunken revelers from SantaCon. Both events drew comparable-sized crowds, hovering around 25,000 participants each. Both ended up on the tiny island of Manhattan on the same day. And this coincidence is a perfect metaphor for Christmas this year.

David Hegg: The three essential components of a good life

It doesn't happen often but recently I ran into someone who reads this column regularly. After thanking her for some encouraging comments, I asked "what would like to read about in my column?" She replied, "tell us what makes life good for you." So here it is. But I'm going even further and suggesting these three loves as the essential components of any healthy, satisfying, and significant life.

Kevin Korenthal: Calif. roads still vital to transportation

I applaud Assemblyman Scott Wilk's introduction of AB 6, that if passed, would allow the voters to decide in November 2016 if they want to terminate the High-Speed Rail Project and re-purpose $8 billion in approved funds to address the $12 billion deficit in school construction for K-12 and higher education.

Gary Curtis: Subterfuge should not be used on Cemex

I understand our community leaders' desire to protect the area from a "truck-clogged Highway 14 commute punctuated by occasional bits of flying gravel and scented with a big dose of diesel exhaust" caused by an open Cemex sand-and-gravel mine proposed for Canyon Country, as The Signal Editorial Board described Sunday.

Do the right thing: free the orcas

As a kid growing up in the Santa Clarita Valley, I always enjoyed making the 2 1/2-hour drive down to San Diego to go to SeaWorld and interact with the animals.
