Kevin Buck: Good civics vs. politics

It appears as if there is some confusion among conservatives regarding how our government works and its role in the lives of Americans, as well as its role in the world in general.

It’s true: health really is everything

His neck and underarms were swollen. His skin itched, particularly on his arms. Sleeping at night was impossible.

Steve Lunetta: What’s our role in the Middle East?

My family spent many years in the Middle East because of my Dad's occupation. He was a hydro-geologist, which means he's a guy who found water. Think divining stick with a little bit of science.

Want free books? I know a place

Think about the last time you were in a giant chain bookstore, with its aisles of best-sellers, its huge children's section, its walls of mysteries and rooms of romances. It's got all the classics, along with stacks of photo and art books you can flip through, page-turners that will keep you up all night, books you will read through in one sitting, business books, self-help books, spiritual books, how-to books - something for everyone.

Santa Clarita needs tougher enforcement of noise laws

Recently I alerted both the Mayor's and Sheriff's office of the growing nuisance of modified mufflers both by motorcycles and vehicles in the Santa Clarita area. My first draft to the Mayor's office was asking why isn't the SB 435 law not being enforced. The law requires that every motorcycle registered in California bear the required applicable Federal EPA label which states that the motorcycle emissions equipment is in compliance with federal noise standards.

Charles Vignola: Syria offers us no good choices

Today, President Obama will address the nation and try to convince a skeptical American public why it's important to take limited military action in Syria as retaliation for President Bashar al-Assad last month allowing chemical weapons to be used against civilians, killing nearly 1,500 people, including more than 400 children, with sarin gas.

Diana West: Free the Leavenworth 10-plus

Does any American believe that Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, 28, should remain in a military prison for the next 20 years for "murder" after giving a legitimate order to his soldiers to fire at three Afghan men on motorcycles, killing two in the process?

Tina Dupuy: The GOP psyche: an explainer

I believe the Republican Party's psychic break happened the moment their "compassionate conservative" economic philosophy melted the world's economy. President George W. Bush, the champion of deregulation, bailed out the banks and then offered: "I've abandoned free market principles to save the free market system."

David Hegg: Manning, Wilson: brothers of Christ

Today millions around the world will gather with jersey-clad friends and family to eat and cheer their way through the Super Bowl. This championship of professional football in America has been the darling of the sports media for several weeks now, and finally the hoopla will give way to actual athletic competition.

Frank Ferry: There’s nothing cool about graffiti

As a principal, father, and member of the City Council, I can tell you firsthand that environment and behavior go hand in hand. If we want the best students, we must provide an environment that supports learning, connectivity with quality educators and opportunities to study.

Scott Wilk: ‘State of the State’ report

Last week Governor Jerry Brown tied Earl Warren for the number of State of the State addresses any governor has given. While that is a personal milestone that he can be proud of, the content of his vision for California is infinitely more important.

Jonathan Kraut: Beyond the Olympics and terrorism

The Sochi Winter Olympic Games, commencing February 7, are but a few days away. In 1896 the First Modern Olympics resurrected the ancient Greek tradition of bringing together the most talented athletes. Since then the Modern Olympics have managed to survive world conflicts and have endured WWI, WWII, the Cold War, and hopefully the War on Terror.

Rick Jensen: Conservative ideas are gaining more support

Why do people like Rev. Jeremiah Wright travel across America to exhort audiences to denigrate tea party Americans as racist?

Andrew G. Fried: Concerning crosses and county seals

The First Amendment of our nation's Constitution establishes five rights that the founding fathers considered so important, they listed them first in the Bill of Rights.

David Hegg: Today’s choices determine tomorrow’s opportunities

While the proverbial advice to "take each day as it comes" has some validity, it also masks the dangerous assumption that the choices we make today won't have consequential carry-over tomorrow. In fact, while it is both harmful and a waste of time to worry about the unknowns of the future, it is always wise to consider what effect my decisions today will have on the options available to me later.

Betty Arenson:Affordable Care Act in practice

Ask yourself the honest question: Did you truly believe The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, or ACA, was going to work as promised? If the answer is "yes," then did you earnestly think through the practical workings of the program?

Gary Horton: The Buck now stops

Energizer Bunnies keep going and going and going – and for a time, it looked like Buck McKeon would be equally perpetual in motion to those furry little drumbeaters. The man is after all, 75, and still beating war drums while running circles around most of us. Yet now it seems that both Buck the man, and his underlying message of perpetual militarism may be running down, with time well deserved for some R and R away from the military industrial complex.

Byron York: Jobs should stay in focus

There was a lot to talk about when House Speaker John Boehner appeared before reporters recently for the first time since the holiday break. There are continuing fights over Obamacare. Immigration reform. Appropriations bills. The debt ceiling. The Democratic push for the president's "inequality agenda."
