Why the Democrats are winning

One of the main reasons that Obama is prevailing over McCain is very simple. It is intrinsic and very effective, and yet it is being ignored. It is out of the reach of issues.

Michele Buttelman: Holidays are for everyone

The holiday countdown is now at single digits. Hanukkah begins tonight at sundown, Christmas is a mere four days away and Kwanzaa begins Friday.

It's now less than two weeks until Halloween ... though with the recent ups and downs on Wall Street it seems we've had plenty of scary stuff to keep us awake at night!

Alice Khosravy: Role of government on display

Recently, the community of Santa Clarita has been buzzing over potential billboard removals and the possibility of sign ordinance changes. It began when the Metro Group, who owns the land on which the billboards in question reside, approached the city with a proposal to remove every billboard in the Metro (railroad) right-of-way, within the Soledad Canyon Road and Railroad Avenue corridors, in the center of the city.
