Gary Horton: Just move along folks

"Just move along folks, there's nothing left to see." So says the clichéd copper in so many old cops n' robbers movies. The action already happened - the crime, committed. There's just the debris to pick up and the blood to wash off.

Steve Lunetta: Just call me the governor

Once the recall of the Governator is complete, we're going to need a new governor. I know there are a lot of political hacks out there who think they can do the job. But, if an actor can run the ninth largest economy in the world, why not me?

Tim Myers: The (API) numbers game

Let me say at the outset to all the teachers and staff at Helmers Elementary School in the Saugus Union School District: "I love you all!"

Scott Thomas Wilk: I choose God

When Councilman Bob Kellar's proposal to place "In God We Trust" on the city logo made it onto the City Council's agenda, I confess I was ambivalent.

Bob Kellar: City, sheriff, COC launch motorcycle safety program

It's a sobering fact. Santa Clarita has seen a 39 percent increase in motorcycle-related accidents since 2007, with five incidents resulting in fatalities. Motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a traffic collision than someone riding in a passenger car.

Steve Maguin: Federal regulations mandate costly chloride cleanup

Editor's note: The following column was submitted as a response to Sen. George Runner's May 17 column about water softeners and Measure S.

The directors and staff of the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District share Sen. George Runner's frustration with the significant rate increase currently proposed for wastewater service in the Santa Clarita Valley over the next three years, with estimated increases four years beyond, primarily to comply with chloride regulations imposed by the state Regional Water Quality Control Board.

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,
