Dave Bossert - Status quo is the way to go Nov. 3

With two weeks until the Nov. 3 election and the absentee ballots already out, the election is practically over at this point. That is the usual mantra from those who say their vote won't really make a difference. I don't believe that. With this advisory vote for the westside unincorporated communities, every vote matters.

Tony Strickland - We must protect our state's businesses

Owning and operating your own business has never been easy. Start-up capital, office space, equipment, employees, payroll, fierce competition and endless paperwork mean never resting as an owner of a small business. And yet, 99.2 percent of the businesses in California fall into the category of "small" and employ more than half of our state's workforce.

Gary Horton: Time to shut up and listen

Tim Myers: David Gauny & the voter gap

So David Gauny announced his candidacy for the Santa Clarita City Council on Oct. 9 in front of Santa Clarita City Hall. Notables stood by his side; most interestingly Councilman Bob Kellar, who offered his endorsement in a hagiography posted on Gauny's campaign Web site.

Bruce McFarland: Remembering my mother, the activist

Where do activists come from? Are they just born, or are children sent to training camps and returned to their families versed in the ways of the movement?

Steve Lunetta: The end of days

When we were living in Chicago, we had to get used to many unusual things that you don't typically see in California living. Snow was a big one. A huge body of water that wasn't an ocean (Lake Michigan). Friendly people who didn't shoot at you on the tollway.

Paul Brotzman: Setting the record straight on the ‘One Valley One Vision’ effort

Lynne Plambeck: One Valley, One Fantasy?

Many of the proposed General Plan updates for both the city of Santa Clarita and surrounding areas are based on a projected huge population increase - more than double our current population - in the next decade. Such a projection will require densification and subsequent zoning changes that will increase property values for developers, but could destroy the quality of life in many neighborhoods.

Phil Rizzo: Always in a hurry to speed things up

There's a book review in the latest issue of The New Yorker magazine entitled, "Not so fast. Scientific management started as a way to work. How did it become a way of life?" It is fascinating in the details of the origins of scientific management.
