Gary Horton: Blind to our own blindness

One day I'm sitting at this bar when a blind man walks in with his seeing-eye dog. The dog leads the man straight to the bar and the man pulls up a chair. All of a sudden, the blind man yanks the dog up by the leash and starts spinning him around and around over his head.

W.E. Gutman: Injustice under law and disorder

On June 28, 2009, as half the world awoke to a new round of fiscal woes, civil unrest and war, in another part of the globe, under the cover of darkness, a constitutionally elected leader was rudely stirred from bed and, still in his pajamas, abducted at gunpoint and flown out of the country.

Tim Myers: Honey, I'll be home after my 175th house party

So the citizens of Santa Clarita, or at least the 13 percent of eligible voters (about 11,000 to 12,000 people) find themselves in the midst of a City Council election campaign, and those probably 800 discrete people who made themselves fans or friends of three candidates' social networking sites can monitor the every move of David Gauny, TimBen Boydston and Harrison Katz, the three challengers to the power of incumbency who look to mount an actual campaign.

R.J. Kelly: How we navigated the water scene in 2009

With California's water supply at a well-publicized crossroads, the past year has posed significant challenges to water professionals statewide, and the coming year promises a continuation of those challenges as well as a potential major turning point in the way our state manages this essential resource.

Lynne Plambeck: Mom, apple pie and water conservation

Water conservation seems as American as apple pie, a "no-brainer." If this answer to water supply is really so innocent, then why has it taken so long for our water district, city and county to institute conservation measures?

Steve Lunetta: Getting out of control

I don't usually write consecutive columns about the same topic, but this situation seems to be careening out of control and our government seems impotent to stop it.

Kevin Buck: The eye of the beholder

I am old enough to remember a time when political arguments revolved around policy differences, and the solutions to the major issues of the day were often hammered out in smoke-filled back rooms.

Betty Arenson: Citizens are not safe in this country

A country and its citizens are not safe when the country lacks leadership. When that lack is repeatedly punctuated with one scandal and crisis after another, there is valid reason for grave concern.

Brian Baker: Pondering a runaway presidency

In my last column ("The IRS is far from earning back our trust," June 30), I discussed the arrogance and lawlessness of the Obama administration and its bureaucrats, practiced on a scale unprecedented in American history.

Gary Horton: Friendships are the glue of our lives

Katie sat anxiously in the salon chair this past Tuesday afternoon. We were in Seattle visiting Katie - it was our first visit to see her since she left Southern California after recuperating from a traumatic brain injury she suffered in India.

Charlie Vignola: Bordering on madness

This past Saturday morning, angry local conservatives gathered on one side of the Valencia Boulevard overpass of Interstate 5 to protest the child immigrants seeking refuge in the United States, and a counter-protest of progressives sympathetic to the plight of these poor kids gathered on the other side of the overpass.

Michelle Boehm: Response to Signal editorial 'The high speed rail hoodwink'

The Signal's opinion piece titled "The high speed rail hoodwink" (Opinion, July 13) recycles many of the myths and misinformation about the California High-Speed Rail Program that have been put forward by opponents.

Gary Horton: Got our new street, now onto the landscape

We're finally getting our new street today. It took civic action by many in our neighborhood over the course of two full years, but the city has finally come around and allocated resources to maintain the assets for which we pay the taxes for them to maintain - in the first place.

David Hegg: Cause, effect and satisfaction

I grew up working odd jobs to earn money. In the winter I would go from house to house with my snow shovel, and in the summer you could find me wheeling my gas lawn mower down the block to service the five families that paid me to mow their lawns weekly. It was a great operation, and kept me in soda, sunflower seeds, and fishing bait throughout my summer vacation from school.
