Tom Pattantyus: Happy 234th birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps

On Nov. 10, 1775, the Continental Congress passed a resolution stating that "two battalions of Marines be raised" for service as landing forces with the fleet. Their first amphibious raid into the Bahamas took place in March 1776 under the command of Capt. (later Major) Samuel Nicholas. Nicholas, the first commissioned officer in the Continental Marines, is considered to be the first Marine Commandant.

Cam Noltemeyer: Where has our little CAG gone?

For many years the Whittaker-Bermite facility made ordnance in the Santa Clarita Valley for the military. This 996-acre property, located off Soledad Canyon Road in the center of our city, is still polluting our groundwater with the chemicals used to make those bombs.

Until death to us part

There are death penalty arguments aplenty. The common ones are: Does it deter crime, is it moral, equitable, more costly than life imprisonment - is it "cruel and unusual punishment?" People don't usually consider what happens after an execution. These and other death penalty issues will be addressed in an upcoming symposium. The death penalty's greatest issue is finality. Executions cannot be undone.

Is Boydston a game-changer?

Make no mistake. If Joe Messina gains a seat on the William S. Hart Union High School District board after the Tuesday election, it could represent a true sea change in the local politics of the Santa Clarita Valley.

Preserving a civil war of words

"He who is different from me does not impoverish me - he enriches me. Our unity is constituted in something higher than ourselves - in Man. ... For no man seeks to hear his own echo, or to find his reflection in the glass."

Laurie Ender: What does Santa Clarita want for the holidays?

Scott Thomas Wilk: Castaic High — Getting to the Promised Land

It took Moses 40 years to lead the Children of Israel across the desert to the Promised Land. So why should we be surprised, in an era of environmental impact reports and NIMBYism, that the William S. Hart Union High School District has yet to finalize its 10-year search for a home for the proposed Castaic high school?

Lynne Plambeck: One Valley, One Vision deserves unbiased review

A few years ago, the legislature tried to pass a law that would make environmental review for projects less biased. It seems developer-funded environmental impact reports (EIRs) often left something to be desired in the areas of accuracy and full disclosure.

Gary Horton: Maybe we're the strangers

Luke Skywalker walks tentatively into the Mos Eisley Cantina on pirate planet Tatooine, his faithful golden droid by his side. "We don't serve droids here," a gnarly bartender barks out, and C-3PO gets rudely tossed out.

I freely choose to put my political opinions out among the public, so I accept I will elicit a fair share of protest for holding said opinions.

Steve Lunetta: Lessons in advanced liberalism

One of my esteemed and talented fellow columnists has taken a sabbatical to spend time learning to be a better business leader. In a recent column, he learned to "be silent and listen."

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?
