Patricia Sulpizio: Shame on you, Mr. McKeon

Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon could have reached across the aisle and made his first women's conference a truly excellent nonpartisan event, but his choice of keynote speakers made it clear who he represents.

David Gauny: An imperfect man vs. a well-oiled machine

Editor's note: This is the first in a series of columns from candidates in the 2010 Santa Clarita City Council race. David Gauny: Imperfect man vs. well-oiled machine

Scott Wilk declared in his Jan. 29 column that he could "outperform Nostradamus" by predicting that all three City Council incumbents would be re-elected in 2010.

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

As a regular follower of The Signal, I read with great interest Linda Malerba's opinion column on Feb. 12 about homelessness.

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.

It seems the world is imploding. When the financial markets had a meltdown, Washington's politicians bailed out Wall Street but ignored Main Street.

Henry Schultz: Making Santa Clarita an even better place to live

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

Santa Clarita is a great place to live. It is so good that we retired here. Is it perfect? No.

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.

Paul Strickland: Session on immigration much-needed

Hurrah to the Santa Clarita City Council for unanimously voting to provide a public study session on the effect of illegal immigration on its citizens.

Cam Noltemeyer: Requiring energy efficiency for new development

On Feb. 11, a California Superior Court Judge ruled against the Community Advocates for Healthcare SCV and Santa Clarita Organization for Planning and the Environment in public-interest litigation filed in opposition a massive office expansion on the campus of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.

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.

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.

Dante Acosta: Camp Clarita provides summer fun

The official arrival of summer is just weeks away. If you listen closely, you will soon be able to hear kids all over town chanting that classic phrase: "school's out for summer!"

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.
