David Cetra: State will offer IOU’s

Now that it is official that the state will be issuing IOUs instead of sending out state income tax refund checks to those taxpayers who have determined that they should receive one, I have a few questions and comments for those who are supposed to represent us in our state government, as well as the California taxpayer, to ponder.

So the William S. Hart Union High School District board of education unanimously approved a final version of a "random" and "voluntary" drug-testing plan for students after one year of debate - during which the supporters of the plan seem to include only the five members of the board, some administration toadies and a local individual who makes his living getting youths into a residential drug rehabilitation plan.

Howard P. "Buck" McKeon: Stimulus or spending?

I don't want to sound like an alarmist, but it's important that I am precise and clear about my view of the Democrats' American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Gary Horton: Reflections of the 1930s

After a hard day's work I'm finally back home, collapsed into a favorite chair next to our 22-year-old Valencia company-built favorite fireplace. A restful reprieve after battling gale force recession headwinds all day.

Roger Gitlin: How much is a trillion?

As the Senate signs off on its version of the stimulus package of almost $1 trillion ($780 billion Senate version, $820 billion House version), who could disagree that the United States of America has moved dramatically to the left?
