As we grow older, none of us can be certain we won't find ourselves at some point needing assistance to help us pay the rent, mortgage, utility bill, medical bill or some other bills that come up. Senior members among us are struggling to do just these things. Many are on fixed incomes. Others simply don't have the means to meet the basic needs.
For the second night in a row, our "Yes On Prop. 8" yard signs have been stolen from our front yard. I find it very hypocritical that the liberal groups that support gay marriage call people who vote for traditional family values "intolerant," when they themselves don't allow for free speech when it disagrees with their views.
Wow! So this is where we are in our society? Last night my "Yes on 8" yard sign was stolen from my front yard. This doesn't surprise me, however, given the type of people that would not support Prop. 8. If Prop. 8 is defeated, then this is just a glimpse of the suppression of free speech to come. You can be sure that B. Hussein Obama and the rest of the "Dims" will try to further suppress the voice of those who stand for traditional values. To all the Christians out there, it's time to stop being ...
When you vote, remember one of the most important local votes, Measure S. This will mandate removal of the "old-style" water softeners and will help homeowners and businesses avoid huge costs. Only about 10 percent of homes have not taken the rebates and keep the old softeners. Yet unless we remove these chloride pollution sources, we could be forced to install a "brine line" to the ocean. That is estimated to cost every home $500 more and an average business $2,000 more on the sewer portion of the property tax bills. This fee would be annual, and would apply ...
The indomitable Mr. Boston had me laughing out loud at the breakfast table. He must feel the same way about walking music the same way I feel about soccer and still you ruin half a sport page filling it up with that junk.
I had the pleasure recently of attending the Saugus High School choir concert. It was the winter performance, and what a performance!
In response to the Letter to the Editor titled "Kudos to the council" (Oct. 17, 2008): Sure. Kudos to the council for flip-flopping all over the place with the Benz neighborhood traffic problem.
I wasn't going to write, but the inane follow-up comments on the pit bull situation at Valencia High School have caused me to write.
I think it is about time that the Hart district governing board is finally planning on selecting a site for Castaic high school.
John Boston's Dec. 7, 2008, column "On Dirt Clods and an Acton Bullet" is not just interesting, entertaining and creative, but important and poignant.
Even during the original ratifications, implementation of procedures and policies in our government faced changes to the Constitution (or Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781).
Rocket Collins, 13 seasons as boys head basket coach at Valencia High School, has been relieved of his position.
Gary Horton's June 4 column "Embracing a fire that still burns us today" is his most articulate column yet, and is so right on!

Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.
Let's stipulate that both sides of the political spectrum want the best for others (a fair assumption, especially since both sides insist that is so).

Historically we are a violent people and mankind's history throughout the world demonstrates that we are violent. Laws passed protect us all from violence. But laws alone can't eliminate violence.
In Charlie Vignola's column ("Sensible about gun control," May 20) Vignola is basically making the intellectually flaccid argument that guns cause their own misuse.
Why do we not get fine films out here in SCV?
