W.E. Gutman: As the dust settles, questions and suspicions mount in Haiti

Gary Horton: What we can learn from a satisfied life

It is with pleasure today that I'm am writing about a guy who exemplifies how you and I might hope to turn out in our twisty-turny, up and down, anxiety filled lives. No politics this go-around. Just insight toward more satisfying living.

Kevin Buck: Immutable politics in the U.S.A.

Reading the current headlines, surfing political sites on the Internet or listening to the television and talk radio pontificators' opinions on the present state of our nation and the republic for which it stands, one gets the impression that we are once again on the eve of destruction.

Back in the late 1990s when two of our children attended Helmers Elementary School in Valencia's Northbridge tract, a group of activist parents along with the administration decided the school needed a uniform policy.

W.E. Gutman: Rewarding silence filled with guilt

Last December, spurning the raw feelings and grievances of world Jewry, Pope Benedict XVI signed an edict proclaiming Pope Pius XII, who reigned from 1939 to 1958, "venerable." The pre-beatification formality is intended to hype the late pontiff's "heroic virtues."

Corporate spending: Here come the corporations

Although the exact future impact of the Supreme Court's decision to allow unlimited political spending by corporations is unknown, the wide-reaching detrimental effects on local election campaigns will be inescapable. That is, unless something is done to change it.

A courageous and magnificent misfit

My late father, a European-trained physician, did everything himself without benefit of nurses, clerical staff or drafty assembly-line consultation cubicles.

The tragedy in Isla Vista

By now, most of us have heard of the terrible tragedy that happened in Santa Barbara before Memorial Day. A very confused young man committed a series of violent acts that resulted in the deaths of six college students.

Betty Arenson: The counterfeit mask

You're familiar with the noise America has heard for a long time. It will continue, but it's easily unmasked.

God bless our veterans

Pulled out the paper this bright Monday morning and started reading. Of course, I have my bagel with strawberry cream cheese, oat bran cereal and tall glass of orange juice at the ready. I know how to start my holiday day.

David Hegg: We need to change perspective

While I was not yet living when it was fought, World War II has shaped so much of the world in which I have lived. It framed the whole idea of valor and courage and sacrificial service. And it wasn't only those who served in uniform who experienced the war, and felt that they played a vital part in bringing about a good and swift conclusion to it. In truth, we were a nation at war. Soldier and civilian were on the same team, working for a common goal, with mutual respect and honor.

Christine Korenthal: Free speech on life support

I have watched helplessly in recent weeks and months with a growing sense of alarm, fearing that our generation is witnessing the death of one of the most vital pillars of liberty: the freedom of individual thought and the free exchange of ideas. While it's true that the First Amendment only protects people from government reprisals for speaking freely, social media and mass media lynch mobs are just as much a danger in a free society as any oppressive government.

Laurene Weste: Stay cool and safe this summer in the SCV

Memorial Day is almost here and that means a three-day weekend for most Americans. The annual holiday in honor of the brave men and women who've died serving our country to keep us safe and free is also considered the unofficial start of summer! Flags will be raised in honor of those we've lost, while families and friends will gather for backyard barbeques, lawn games, and poolside fun.
