Phil Rizzo: Believe it or not, most of us have filters

W.E. Gutman: Once upon a time in Haiti

I first visited Haiti in 1960. I had left New York on a dismal, gray January morning and arrived in Port-au-Prince a week later aboard a cruise ship.

Don Gately: What happened to the friendly SCV I knew?

This used to be a friendly place. Everyone smiled. Everyone said "hello," "good morning" or "nice day." Maybe "How's it going?"

Tim Myers: Too many puzzle pieces for Boydston to win this April

When many people object to my election prognostications wherein I take the safe road and predict victories for incumbent office-holders, they state that I could not possibly know what will happen in any particular election. I agree with that assertion.

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.

Gary Horton: Personal determination and a village

Followers of this column know that five weeks ago my daughter Katie was struck by a motorcycle in India. Katie suffered severe traumatic brain injury; required emergency cranial surgery, was comatose two days, spent six days in the ICU, and subsequently required 16 further days of hospitalization to recover sufficiently well for the 24 hour jet trip back home. Landing at LAX, Katie immediately spent two days at UCLA for a thorough work up, followed by one month of outpatient cognitive and occupational rehab. Five days ago, virtually fully recovered,
