Jonathan Kraut: Picking three of five for Hart board

The race for the William S. Hart Union High School District board is interesting because all five candidates for the three open seats are Republican. This means politics is not a factor in this race.

Patricia Sulpizio: L.A. county health care sadly deficient

Marsha McLean: Domestic violence not a partisan issue

There are times when partisan politics needs to be set aside. What has happened to the funding for our Santa Clarita Valley Domestic Violence Center, and other such centers statewide, is a good example.

Steve Lunetta: The NEA and liberal politics

His calls usually come in the dead of night, around 2 a.m. His clever reasoning is that no one is awake and he can speak to me confidentially.

Cameron Smyth: ‘It didn’t have to work out this way’

Next month, California will recognize October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Unfortunately, we will also recognize the disastrous impacts that recent budget cuts have had on domestic violence centers here in the Santa Clarita Valley, and throughout California.

Gary Horton: Got our new street, now onto the landscape

We're finally getting our new street today. It took civic action by many in our neighborhood over the course of two full years, but the city has finally come around and allocated resources to maintain the assets for which we pay the taxes for them to maintain - in the first place.

David Hegg: Cause, effect and satisfaction

I grew up working odd jobs to earn money. In the winter I would go from house to house with my snow shovel, and in the summer you could find me wheeling my gas lawn mower down the block to service the five families that paid me to mow their lawns weekly. It was a great operation, and kept me in soda, sunflower seeds, and fishing bait throughout my summer vacation from school.

David Hegg: The cul-de-sac of bad choices

Part of the joy, and most of the misery, of my job as a pastor is being with folks when they in trouble, surrounded by the carnage of poor choices, and facing what appear to be insurmountable obstacles.

Marsha McLean: Respect is a two-way street

By now, the phrase "Respect is a Two-Way Street" may be a familiar one to Santa Clarita residents. That's because this is the main message behind the city's new safety campaign to help keep bicyclists, motorists and pedestrians safe on our roadways.
