Cam Noltemeyer: Polluted water: Only time will tell

Water and soil pollution continues to be a huge issue in the Santa Clarita Valley, as it has been for more than a decade. The problem is not limited to the Whittaker-Bermite site.

Gary Horton: Time to shut up and listen

It wasn't too many hours into the Wharton management program in which I'm self-reclused that I recognized my first personal improvement goal: 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.

R. J. Kelly: CLWA flush with success

It was high on the list of things for local water professionals to do in 2009: Complete construction of a treatment plant to remove perchlorate from local groundwater, thus stopping the spread of contamination caused by a former munitions manufacturing plant.

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

It is not only unfortunate, but also a disservice to the community that Lynne Plambeck's Environmentally Speaking column ("One Valley, One Vision: A closer look," Oct. 1) contains numerous inaccuracies.

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.

Steve Lunetta: The stench coming from ACORN

We've all had the experience. We go to the refrigerator looking for something cool to drink and when we open the door, our nostrils are assaulted by a hideous odor.

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.

Byron York: Jobs should stay in focus

There was a lot to talk about when House Speaker John Boehner appeared before reporters recently for the first time since the holiday break. There are continuing fights over Obamacare. Immigration reform. Appropriations bills. The debt ceiling. The Democratic push for the president's "inequality agenda."
