Tim Myers: City Council and the wrath of God

You shall not make for yourself an idol. ... You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me.

Willy Gutman: Perhaps Obama can succeed where Clinton failed

On Jan. 31, 1996, I published an essay in The Wall Street Journal titled "A Magnificent Misfit." The article eulogized my father, a European physician who dedicated his life to his craft and died poor but debtless.

Laurie Ender: Keep your identity and information safe

We live in an information age where the world is at our fingertips. We pay our bills, balance our checkbooks, diligently manage our credit and even do our taxes without help. In an instant, however, our personal information can be stolen, ruining years of hard work. Social Security and credit card numbers, bank account information, driver's licenses and other valuable data can be used against us if they fall into the wrong hands.

Taxes make the country work

Having a couple of days to clear my mind regarding tax time and the "tea parties," I thought about the unbelievable good fortune and bounty many of us have.

Cam Noltemeyer: A perfect storm for water woes in the SCV

Managers of Castaic Lake Water Agency have often stated that drought does not occur in northern and southern California at the same time, so we would always have an adequate water supply. And for this year anyway, they were right. The Santa Clarita Valley has enjoyed slightly better than average rainfall, while diminished snow packs in Northern California have severely reduced our access to water from the State Water Project.

However, a massive building spree that ignored future water supply problems and a polluted ground water source has created a "perfect storm" of problems.

Gary Horton: Outstretched hands both shake & punch

At the very moment photos snapped of President Obama shaking hands with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, conservative commentators blood-letted and vented of Obama bespoiling the dignity of the office of U.S. President. FOXies might prefer Obama acting as high school prom bully, but Obama told us during the campaign he intended to employ diplomacy over bravado.

W. E. Gutman: Another reminder of man’s inhumanity toward man

Genocide is the "premeditated expulsion and mass-murder of a people because of its indelible identity - race, ethnicity, religion, culture and language."

Bruce McFarland: America: Love it or leave it

There was an amazing sight on Valencia Boulevard April 15: Hundreds of well-off, well-fed, whining white folks lined up, carrying signs, complaining about their alleged desperate plight in life - paying taxes. There was so much unpatriotic hate on the street during the so-called "TEA" party, I thought I was in a Texan secessionist meeting - maybe those folks who hate America so much should all just move to Texas and get the hell out of the United States.

Jeff Moir: There goes the neighborhood

In response to Saturday's article by Josh Premako regarding the development along Lyons Avenue ("Developer offers project," April 18), I happen to reside next to the proposed project at Lyons Avenue and Arcadia Street. While the concept drawing shown in The Signal is indeed a beautiful building, it is at best only an artist's rendering and does not show any of the detrimental effects that will be brought to the neighborhood on the Arcadia side of the project.

David Hegg: Making sense of your success

I often attend conferences where the attendees are given name tags that boldly announce who they are. This creates a phenomenon rarely seen elsewhere. As we walk the halls of the conference center or hotel, our eyes are fixed on the name tags of those we pass. We're anxious to see if they are "somebody." Is he a well-known speaker?

Bob Kellar: Santa Clarita will continue to thrive

Now that our city has survived another local election, I thought it would be appropriate to make some comments regarding elections and city hall. After all, things can get pretty exciting, or should I say concerning around election time in Santa Clarita.

It's one thing to know you and your wallet have been the victims of a legal money-grabbing scam, but to get repeatedly sucker-punched while you are still reeling is the second atrocity.
