W.E. Gutman: Season's gratings and other pet peeves

As predictable as death and taxes, the yearly Social Security Administration "benefits update" reached millions of Americans in mid-December. Most knew they would not be granted a raise in 2010 and that the freeze might even extend to 2011.

Andre Hollings: The taking of America

Admittedly, President Barack Obama is a man of sterling qualities. He has a temperament and charm befitting one probed by the glare of history's contemplation; an intellect suited to the complexities of a seamless 21st century world; and a big-speech eloquence worthy of the historian's pen.

Jonathan Kraut: Looking ahead with hindsight

To all of you I wish a very healthy, happy, prosperous new year. 2009 was clearly a year of political change, but there were no dramatic upheavals or surprises, just a president doing what he said he would do.

Steve Lunetta: Be grateful for what we have here

It's easy to be negative. That pothole in the street in front of your house that jars your teeth in the morning as you start the daily commute can make it seem like the city does not care.

W.E. Gutman: When the rich play, the poor pay

Parallel universes (or alternate realities in which the laws of physics are not only dissimilar but in conflict) is the stuff of science fiction and quantum mechanics. Brought down to earth, the concept takes on sinister dimensions.

This season we at the Santa Clarita Valley Emergency Winter Shelter have served a significantly increased number of clients compared to prior years. As a trend, we usually begin the season with a median number of clients then climb to near our capacity.

David Hegg: We don’t have to think alike

In every ordered and civilized society the rule of law plays an essential role. Given that human nature is too often selfish and sometimes even cruel, laws are enacted to declare the boundaries between right and wrong. Laws form the lens through which society views the actions of those individuals who choose to live in the group.

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.
