Gary Horton: A sight that urges change

Mom was a good, exemplary parent. A product of the Depression, she came from humble roots, never got ahead of herself and always made sure there was food on the table, a roof overhead and that the bills were paid precisely on time.

Tim Myers: The SCV incumbent conundrum: Is Craig Duswalt right or not?

I recently joined the social networking site Facebook to better monitor young adult children who live away from home, particularly a daughter in her freshmen year at California State University Channel Islands who seems to provide a real-time update every three seconds or so.

W.E. Gutman: Healing the U.S. also a war of necessity

Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica - A full-face and profile effigy of former President George W. Bush adorns the check-in area of a small guest house nestled in the rain forest on Costa Rica's Pacific coast. The caption reads: "Wanted for crimes against humanity."

Nathan Imhoff: More conflict is not the answer

Isn't it refreshing Lynn Vakay ("To whom should Americans give thanks?" Nov. 20) saw fit to use Thanksgiving as an opportunity to push her political and religious propaganda while simultaneously launching a preemptive strike against the Obama White House?

W.E. Gutman: Libertarianism: A lofty ideal or simply artifice?

So, you call yourself a "Libertarian?" You're not alone. But do you fully understand a term that has been sloppily coined and deceptively marketed?

Tim Myers: The decline of football is all in the numbers

Back in the late 1990s, a sports reporter contacted me to obtain a quote concerning an upcoming Hart-Valencia football game during the 10 years the Vikings tried (and failed) to obtain a victory during many regular season and playoff games.

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,

Charlie Vignola: Sensible about gun control

Gun owners are passionate about their guns, and there's nothing wrong with that – but wouldn't it be refreshing if they were just as passionate about reducing all the needless deaths caused by gun violence every single year?
