Jose de la Isla: Drugs and border violence are also American issues

Mexico's biggest national security problem stems from its fight with drug cartels. Its domestic body count of nearly 6,000 people last year sounded the alarm. Prominently listed among the grizzly assassinations were gangsters, police, journalists, members of the military and government officials, plus a multitude of collateral victims.

Gary Horton: Can the Buck be passed?

I did something Thursday night that I've never done before in my 52 years on earth. I finally, formally embraced compassionate humanity. I stopped looking through that glass darkly. I turned away from childish things. I shed the snaky, scaly skin of corruption and greed. Yes, after 34 years as a registered Republican, I officially changed my political party affiliation to Democrat. Mild-mannered, moderate columnist Gary Horton made the long-overdue formal switch to the Democratic Party in pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness - for all people, not just sum (Sic).

Laurie Ender: Anti-Gang Task Force fights to keep streets, youth safe

As community members, we value the safety of our city and understand that it takes a great deal of collaboration to make Santa Clarita a great place to live, work and play. Our world today is riddled with crime, gangs and individuals who see our possessions, lifestyle and even children as a means to their gain. The city works hard to keep this kind of criminal activity off our streets and away from our community, and the City/Sheriff Anti-Gang Task Force proved this in its 2008 yearly report.

Bill Kennedy: Denial led to state budget crunch

It was January 1966 and 2nd Lt. Larry Arnold, one of my USAF pilot training classmates, had just lifted off from our base in Texas for his initial solo in a twin-engine jet, when he was confronted by one of a pilot's worst nightmares - a cockpit warning light indicating a fire in the right engine.

Kevin Korenthal: Diversity or discrimination?
