Ethan Jewell: What we expect from our representatives

It's funny what you can come to expect from certain people. You wouldn't think naturally that if a person decided they'd had it with their career and wanted to run for an office representing others, they'd completely avoid some due diligence in the process rather than simply trying to get elected straight to Congress.

Cher Gilmore: An Earth Day wish for the SCV

It would be a wonderful gift to Mother Earth on Earth Day if Congressman Steve Knight would make a commitment to working on a legislative solution to climate change. He's already proved that he cares about keeping our environment as pollution-free as possible. He introduced a bill to make sure there's no gravel mining in Santa Clarita's future and another that would help prevent more gas leaks like the recent Aliso Canyon disaster.

Steve Lunetta: Present day fairy tale

Once upon a time in the Land of Gold, there lived a mighty king named Jerry. Well, he wasn't so mighty in the common sense of a big army and navy. He wielded something far more powerful - a magic pen that could sign pieces of paper.
