Dan Rhys: Dems taste their own medicine

In recent days, I have heard the two most popular conservative radio hosts, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, take criticism from Democrats for what they have said - or not said - on their radio shows. Yet, in both cases, these hosts are only echoing Democratic sentiments during President Bush's eight years in office and giving Democrats a bit of what they gave to the former president.

R.J. Kelly: On the local water front

Like many organizations, here at the Castaic Lake Water Agency we view the end of one year - and the beginning of the next - as a time of transition and an opportunity to take stock of where we've been and where we're headed.

Jay Ambrose: Bush’s environmental record

When it came to the environment, George W. Bush as president was not just a flop, but a maelstrom of menace, and the worst of it was his motivation - an intent to please evangelical nutcases who thought the apocalypse was coming soon anyway, and the sooner the better.

John Boston: The origins of good legislation

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature."

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.
