To The Editor: Mayor Kellar is an original class act. He has done and continues to do so much for our city. There is no council member that I can remember who stands up so strong when addressing issues. He takes them head on. Again, we live in a great city because of the dedication to family and quality-of-life issues that Mayor Kellar believes in and defends.
To The Editor: We were so impressed to learn that Congressman Buck McKeon has endorsed Laurie Ender for City Council. We see that the congressman understands the importance of serving all the people in the Santa Clarita Valley in terms of health care and fighting Cemex operations in our community.

To The Editor: Whatever the organization, it won¹t take long for you to notice Diane Trautman as a leader, a thoughtful contributor and a person given to level opinions and decisions. I volunteered with her as a co-chaperone for marching band events when our sons both attended Saugus High School. What impressed me most was that she would always bring along documents and studies for upcoming Planning Commission meetings, which she read during free ...
To The Editor: Mayor Bob Kellar is leadership in action, unequaled in his accomplishments by any others in the current race for City Council. Kellar's leadership has saved our valley from Cemex in Soledad Canyon. He long ago made safety a priority, leading Santa Clarita to the envied position as one of the safest cities in America. Bob's evident commitment to improve roads (most notably the cross-valley connector) and create more open space has already ...

Michael Picarella, by his own admission, overflows with imagination. However, it is apparent from his "Easter Bunny" column that his abundance of imagination clearly overrides good judgment and common sense. In an attempt to instill a strong sense of imagination in his 4-year-old son, he bought a live "Easter Bunny" from the bunny ranch. Even after learning that bunnies are not the best pets for young children as they are sensitive and require a lot ...
To the Editor: I would like to thank you for Tammy Marashlian's March 15 insightful article about Moms in Touch in the Santa Clarita Valley. This prayer ministry, uniting moms in prayer for their children and their schools, is life-changing, both for our children and for us moms.

To The Editor: I support Laurie Ender in her candidacy for City Council. Laurie would make a wonderful addition to the council. She is an intelligent, hard-working and enthusiastic advocate for the people of Santa Clarita and has already left her caring touch on the lives of so many.

To The Editor: Having been intensely involved in City Hall politics for the past two years, I have witnessed two candidates emerge as the top choices in next Tuesdayâ€TMs election: Bob Kellar and Diane Trautman.
To The Editor: Do you want City Council candidates who have serious conflicts of interest or who get money from dubious sources known to misrepresent opponents with hit mailers? Obviously not. You do want council members who work hard, are accessible, have strong experience, are competent, and most of all, have integrity.
To The Editor: To Bob Kellar: you want us to vote for you, but you can't follow the printed instructions! Oh, those instructions must be for everyone else, not you.

Regarding Alice Khosravy's column "California is at bottom for business," (Feb. 22), Khosravy's excellent commentary was so clear and so factual citing a huge - if not t-h-e huge - problem that is at the core of California being on life support as a state, a once-thriving, enviable state.
The Boy Scouts of America need to allow gays into their organization because that is the moral imperative, if you will, toward "a more perfect union."
Leftists of late have become very defensive about being called socialist in their ideology, as typified by Kevin Buck's column (Feb. 19, "Straw men live in glass houses").
CNN news anchor Deb Feyerick recently asked "The Science Guy" Bill Nye if global warming caused the latest asteroid.
"Marriage" is shorthand for a specific legal arrangement between a man and a woman, just as "corporation" or "limited partnership" is a specific legal arrangement between shareholders, business partners, etc.
