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.

Tim Myers: Are school-age demographics the SCV's 'Black Swan'?

In his seminal work "The Black Swan," Nicholas Taleb lays much blame on the tendency to attempt to project out the future on Bill Gates and Microsoft.

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.

Frank Ferry: Blue Ribbon Task Force celebrates 10th anniversary

January marks the 10th anniversary of the Santa Clarita's Blue Ribbon Task Force. Formed in 2000 in response to concerns voiced by our community, elected officials and advocates about the use of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco by local teens, the Task Force has grown to become an important community resource in helping to educate parents and address key teen issues.

Lynne Plambeck: Overstating water supplies won't make it rain, people

State legislators have long seen an urgent need to provide adequate water supply information to planners. It was obvious to everyone that increased population in California would escalate pressure on the state's water resources.

Gary Horton: Not too late to give thanks

The season of good cheer has come and passed. Time to pull down the tree, pack up the ornaments and savor that last glass of eggnog cluttering the refrigerator.

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.

Annette Guzman: The day the shelter turns the homeless away

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.

Tim Myers: Are there really that many home-schooled students in the SCV?

In the mid-90s the Republican-controlled House of Representatives held public hearings to "expose" the venality and cruelty of the Internal Revenue Service.

Maria Gutzeit: D’s and R’s, OMG LOL

My December horoscope on MSN stated Sagittarians "stand against the pre-established social order of this society." That explains my figurative tendency to hit my head against the wall.

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.
