Curse of the Ghoul Mine

It's the season for pumpkins and ghosts and goblins, galore! It's also time to head out to Lombardi's up Bouquet Canyon in Saugus. Devastated by the Buckweed Fire last year, Lombardi's is back - and just as good as ever. Why not head out there this weekend and celebrate a Santa Clarita Valley institution?

Gary Horton: Our hearts are not with our children

Most folks understand that the tax policies of the past 30 years have created a great wealth disparity in the United States.

Charlie Vignola: The bare minimum

Republicans think they get unfairly labeled as the party of the wealthy, a party that tricks working-class voters into voting against their own economic self-interest by exploiting cultural wedge issues.

Tom Purcell: Why Groundhog Day should be outlawed

Punxsutawney Phil must be stopped. The lovable little groundhog must be stopped.

Tina Dupuy: The GOP psyche: an explainer

I believe the Republican Party's psychic break happened the moment their "compassionate conservative" economic philosophy melted the world's economy. President George W. Bush, the champion of deregulation, bailed out the banks and then offered: "I've abandoned free market principles to save the free market system."

David Hegg: Manning, Wilson: brothers of Christ

Today millions around the world will gather with jersey-clad friends and family to eat and cheer their way through the Super Bowl. This championship of professional football in America has been the darling of the sports media for several weeks now, and finally the hoopla will give way to actual athletic competition.

Frank Ferry: There’s nothing cool about graffiti

As a principal, father, and member of the City Council, I can tell you firsthand that environment and behavior go hand in hand. If we want the best students, we must provide an environment that supports learning, connectivity with quality educators and opportunities to study.

Scott Wilk: ‘State of the State’ report

Last week Governor Jerry Brown tied Earl Warren for the number of State of the State addresses any governor has given. While that is a personal milestone that he can be proud of, the content of his vision for California is infinitely more important.

Jonathan Kraut: Beyond the Olympics and terrorism

The Sochi Winter Olympic Games, commencing February 7, are but a few days away. In 1896 the First Modern Olympics resurrected the ancient Greek tradition of bringing together the most talented athletes. Since then the Modern Olympics have managed to survive world conflicts and have endured WWI, WWII, the Cold War, and hopefully the War on Terror.

Rick Jensen: Conservative ideas are gaining more support

Why do people like Rev. Jeremiah Wright travel across America to exhort audiences to denigrate tea party Americans as racist?

Andrew G. Fried: Concerning crosses and county seals

The First Amendment of our nation's Constitution establishes five rights that the founding fathers considered so important, they listed them first in the Bill of Rights.

David Hegg: Today’s choices determine tomorrow’s opportunities

While the proverbial advice to "take each day as it comes" has some validity, it also masks the dangerous assumption that the choices we make today won't have consequential carry-over tomorrow. In fact, while it is both harmful and a waste of time to worry about the unknowns of the future, it is always wise to consider what effect my decisions today will have on the options available to me later.

Betty Arenson:Affordable Care Act in practice

Ask yourself the honest question: Did you truly believe The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, or ACA, was going to work as promised? If the answer is "yes," then did you earnestly think through the practical workings of the program?

Gary Horton: The Buck now stops

Energizer Bunnies keep going and going and going – and for a time, it looked like Buck McKeon would be equally perpetual in motion to those furry little drumbeaters. The man is after all, 75, and still beating war drums while running circles around most of us. Yet now it seems that both Buck the man, and his underlying message of perpetual militarism may be running down, with time well deserved for some R and R away from the military industrial complex.
