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.

That ’70s Cabaret at the CTG

Spring officially began on Friday, and it sure seems to be busting out all over the Santa Clarita Valley these days. However, it looks like winter is paying us one last blast. That's fine with me, spring is lovely, but I love winter.

Robin Clough: SCV air quality will take your breath away

Santa Clarita is a valley of natural beauty, endless trails and pristine parks. I see Santa Claritans out everywhere: biking, hiking, running, playing, reveling in our good fortune to live in such an ideal climate surrounded by stunning mountains and sacred trees.

Gary Horton: Honestly, we’re socialists in the SCV

So - after enjoying a peaceful night's sleep in your virtually crimeless neighborhood, you drive your big SUV down our wide, landscaped roads, dropping kids off at our well-managed public schools, continuing your way down Caltrans-maintained highways to your job building widgets for the latest government fighter plane or public project. Listening to Rush Limbaugh in the morning, you consider how superior your anti-government, conventional-wisdom conservatism is. But maybe you're having some doubts.

DaAnne Smith: Bob Kellar calls on community to hear King Solomon’s message

Can any of us imagine - right here in Santa Clarita - a mom and her children sleeping in their car? It may sound unbelievable, but they are coming to Single Mothers Outreach for help. In the last two weeks, I have talked with seven families that were homeless or about to become homeless.

Bruce McFarland: Barack Obama vs. the Green Bubble

Google Barack Obama Anti-Christ and you get 1.12 million hits. Today we'll discuss that and I'll criticize Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, explain Jon Stewart and Jim Cramer, as well as making a little sense of the financial meltdown and the Green Bubble. That's a lot to do, so let's get going.

Steve Lunetta: Wings like eagles

A remarkable thing happened at Christ Lutheran Church on Tournament Road a couple weeks ago. Troop 609 held a National Eagle Court-of-Honor. What made it so remarkable was that not just one Eagle was christened but four.

The recent birth of octuplets to a single and unemployed mother of six in Bellflower has been the fodder for numerous television news segments, talk shows and editorials.

Tim Myers: Saugus High and the culture wars

I personally know Bill Bolde. When ranking the principals of the six comprehensive high schools in the Hart district, I would place him just slightly below Dr. Paul Priesz of Valencia High School.

Jocelyn Reyes: What does your heart say?

A couple of weeks ago, I visited the Reagan Presidential Library and picked up my signed copy of Bill O'Reilly's "A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity."

Marsha McLean: Emergency Expo helps residents prepare for disaster

California residents are not strangers to emergencies. Disaster strikes in many forms, and almost always without warning, but the burden can consistently be lessened when we anticipate a surprise. Many families are left in worse condition than ever imagined because they failed to properly prepare. To avoid this common tragedy, the city of Santa Clarita does its best to help residents proactively prepare for emergencies.
