Steve Lunetta: Don't bring back 'The Fairness Doctrine'

David Hegg: Cliches You Shouldn't Trust

Sometimes things we hear all the time can slowly creep into our belief system as though they were true. But, as a general rule, most general rules generalize truth to the place where they are untrustworthy.

Tammy Messina: It’s Time for the City to Become a Real Factor for Seniors

Watch the debates. Read the mailers. Everyone running for the Santa Clarita City Council in the April 8 election - right down to the last one of the 13 candidates fighting over three seats - wants the support of our local seniors.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT COLUMN:Vote Gutzeit, Ferdman for City Council

Every now and again, life itself interrupts what we think or hope life should be and rudely reminds us that we are not as in control as we believe we are.

David Hegg: The importance of reading

I remember seeing a poster somewhere proclaiming "Readers are Leaders." Certainly the basic truth here is evident, but I greatly fear there is need for some additional specificity. I'd vote for expanding it to say "Readers who read the right things are leaders."

Bob Kellar: Thursdays @ Newhall returns with a slam
