Paul De La Cerda: Community advocacy in action

On Monday morning, March 23, I anxiously awoke at 5:30 a.m. realizing I had to wait two more hours until I could board a chartered bus to take part in an annual road trip to our state Capitol.

Laurie Ender: One Valley, One Vision -- one plan, four themes

Over the last several years, the city of Santa Clarita and Los Angeles county have been working with residents of this valley to create a joint general plan, the first of its kind in L.A. County.

Tim Myers: SCV Republican activists are gifts that keep on giving

When I meet people for the first time who know me only through this column, I initially must clarify that I have received no money for these weekly ramblings over the past 12-some years.

Bill Kennedy: An insider's view of capital dysfunction

Last month, I presented my view that our legislature in Sacramento is dysfunctional on fiscal matters. One problem, among other reasons, is that our elected officials tend to vote on party lines rather than on the individual merits of any given budget issue.

Bob Levine: Life's about making a difference

Today, I reach the mid-century point of my life. This offers a great time to take stock and look back to see what I have done in my life to make a difference.

Crochet, not knit

Lynne Plambeck: Lyons Ranch puts seniors, taxpayers at peril

A trip to a Board of Supervisors meeting in downtown Los Angeles is never a pleasant experience for the public. It means a day off work, a long drive in traffic, usually about an hour and a half from Santa Clarita and a hefty parking fee. A long wait faces the intrepid traveler before the agenda item is heard. Then finally, the resident is granted the opportunity to speak to a supervisor who is not listening because he is having a conversation at the dais with someone else.

Gary Horton: We’re sewn and stitched together

It's Lent, and our congregation is collectively reciting the Nicene Creed. Without warning, four pews forward, he collapsed. From standing tall with voice strong, he buckled. His wife caught his fall, guiding him to a supine position on the pew. I, and others rushed forward to aid.

Kevin Buck: The VLWC and you

It has been just 52 days since President Obama took the oath of office and began implementing the secret Democratic plan to destroy the United States, create a socialist welfare state and use the powers of the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy to silence the Vast Right Wing Conclave once and for all.

Steve Lunetta: AIG and the Dodd loophole

My Uncle Earl has got to be one of the crustiest fellows I've ever seen. From his thinning mouse-gray hair to his weathered western cowboy boots, Earl's features speak to a life of difficult lessons and hard-earned wisdom. Earl's time in the Marine Corps taught him to be tough under fire and not mince words. He also knows the price that men have paid to make us all free.

Michele E. Buttelman: Goodbye, P-I

My love affair with newspapers is a life-long obsession that runs deep. All I know is newspaper work. I've managed circulation drives, operated a Compugraphic typesetter, sold advertising, done layout in the days of waxing machines and pica poles, been a news system IT trainer and now - a journalist.

Tim Myers: Local economic indicators

The major media treats us to a plethora of so-called "headline" economic indicators on a daily basis.

Don Gately: Confessions of a packrat

Maybe it's because I was born during the Depression and we were poor, but I have a hard time - a very hard time - getting rid of anything that once had value. Maybe I'll need it again.

Frank Ferry: Mayor's Prayer Breakfast promotes unity

Not just Christians and Jews, but also Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and the followers of many other religions believe in values like peace, respect, tolerance and dignity. These are values that bring people together and enable us to build responsible and solid communities.

David Hegg: Toward ethical friendship

Someone has rightly said that a true friend is one who walks in when everyone else is walking out. In most areas of life, tragedy and trial bring truth to the surface. Your true character is best seen in the worst of situations, when the façade falls away and you no longer can hide who you are. When it comes to friendships, hard times bring out the reality of the relationship.

David Hegg: Making sense of your success

I often attend conferences where the attendees are given name tags that boldly announce who they are. This creates a phenomenon rarely seen elsewhere. As we walk the halls of the conference center or hotel, our eyes are fixed on the name tags of those we pass. We're anxious to see if they are "somebody." Is he a well-known speaker?

Bob Kellar: Santa Clarita will continue to thrive

Now that our city has survived another local election, I thought it would be appropriate to make some comments regarding elections and city hall. After all, things can get pretty exciting, or should I say concerning around election time in Santa Clarita.
