Steve Lunetta: Politics playing 'Schneider!'

My kids used to play this incredibly dorky game in their earlier years. When they were traveling in the car, they would look for the big, orange container trucks that have the name "Schneider" emblazoned across the front.

Cameron Smyth: The uproar obscures the issues

In recent weeks, Santa Clarita has been the focus of national news stories over the comments of City Councilman Bob Kellar. I have known Kellar for more than a dozen years and spent six years serving with him on the Santa Clarita City Council.

Terry Comp: Help is on the way

W.E. Gutman: Strangers in 'paradise'

It is in a genteel, lily-white Connecticut town, where old-moneyed gentry and upstarts coexist in mutual disdain, that I met and befriended six "illegals."

Scott Wilk: Even an imperfect man ought to know the truth

I wasn't feeling the love Valentine's Day morning when I read City Council candidate David Gauny's column ("An imperfect man vs. a well-oiled machine," Feb. 14). Gauny, in his mea culpa for his past indiscretions, made several factually incorrect statements about me, City Councilwoman Laurie Ender and City Councilman Frank Ferry.

Tim Myers: My vote for the Hart district ‘super’? The meanest person alive

I can only conclude the job of pubic school superintendent must rank in the bottom 10 of worst jobs in the world. School principal would rank much higher.

Laurene Weste: Tough times call for steady leadership

Editor's note: This is one in a series of columns from candidates in the 2010 Santa Clarita City Council race.

Frank Ferry: I would be honored to have your vote

Editor's note: This is one in a series of columns from candidates in the 2010 Santa Clarita City Council race.

When I made the decision to run for City Council, it was because I wanted to make a difference in the community I call home. I wanted to make sure that our city residents received the highest level of police services; that graffiti was cleaned up quickly; that new roads and state-of-the-art traffic systems were being added; and that our community's youth and seniors received the services and facilities they needed.

Steve Lunetta: Corralling stray sheep

A lone white man walks down the street in the heavily Hispanic side of Newhall. His skin color sets him apart from the brown-skinned residents. He carries no Watchtower tracts, nor does he wear a name badge announcing his church.

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

American troops made their habitually flamboyant entrance in the earthquake-ravaged Haitian capital to distribute aid and provide security in one of America's most-spirited military deployments since the 2003 Battlestar Galactica-style invasion of Iraq.

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. Your true character is best seen in the worst of situations, when the façade falls away and you no longer can hide who you are. When it comes to friendships, hard times bring out the reality of the relationship.
