David Cetra: State will offer IOU’s

Now that it is official that the state will be issuing IOUs instead of sending out state income tax refund checks to those taxpayers who have determined that they should receive one, I have a few questions and comments for those who are supposed to represent us in our state government, as well as the California taxpayer, to ponder.

So the William S. Hart Union High School District board of education unanimously approved a final version of a "random" and "voluntary" drug-testing plan for students after one year of debate - during which the supporters of the plan seem to include only the five members of the board, some administration toadies and a local individual who makes his living getting youths into a residential drug rehabilitation plan.

Gary Horton: Reflections of the 1930s

After a hard day's work I'm finally back home, collapsed into a favorite chair next to our 22-year-old Valencia company-built favorite fireplace. A restful reprieve after battling gale force recession headwinds all day.

Tim Myers: Everyone is willing to spend someone else's money

I believe I attended my last State of the City meeting in 2004. These luncheons constituted an opportunity for local elected officials to "speechify" concerning the many predictable accomplishments of the year, from new roads to shiny new recreation facilities.

David Hegg: Toward ethical friendship

Someone has rightly said that a true friend is one who walks in when everyone else is walking out. In most areas of life, tragedy and trial bring truth to the surface.

When it comes to friendships, hard times bring out the reality of the relationship.
