Thursday, Jul 7, 2016

Photo: Banbillboardblight.org The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that municipal ordinances banning mobile billboards do not violate the First Amendment. Santa Clarita and three other defendant cities – Los Angeles, Rancho Cucamonga and Loma Linda – were vindicated by a three-judge...

Better Deal
Wednesday, Aug 19, 2015

Where is the “better deal?” I find it strange that all these months later, we are still waiting on the “better deal” to rid our valley of billboards. If the group, Citizens Against Billboard Blight, or CABB, has a better deal for us, please show it soon. I’d like to see the billboard blight...

Dry Heat
Thursday, Apr 30, 2015

How many of you love the “auto-correct” feature on Facebook and other places on the Internet? Anyone? I recently made a comment on a site, and the word “find” was replaced with another word that at least started with the letter “F.” Let me say here that I’m very sorry if I offended anyone....

Keep Trying
Sunday, Apr 12, 2015

This past Friday night, like many Friday nights, I spent the evening singing a few songs at a local place that has karaoke. I like to sing. An evening among friends and neighbors just having a good time and forgetting the cares of the week past. For me, that is a relaxing evening – and entertaining,...

Billboard Blight
Saturday, Nov 29, 2014

Have you seen the deplorable state of many of the billboards in the SCV? I know the billboard companies probably thought they wouldn’t have any billboards left, and now they must be scrambling to sign up advertisers.

That First Step
Monday, Nov 10, 2014

Big excitement at my place today because I got a new five-string banjo and tuned it up. Now I’ve only to learn to play it. You see, I’ve played four-string tenor banjo and banjo ukulele, so this Bluegrass instrument is a whole new gig. It has the “extree strang” that I just can’t seem to understand....

Hear My Hand Wave
Friday, Nov 7, 2014

This just in … Howard “Take-the-Buck” McKeon is selling his home in the SCV. This is like getting rid of 60 billboards at once, or TimBen not speaking for 30 minutes on each subject at a council meeting, or the “No on S” folks making civil comments about what I write. This is big. B-I-G –...

Voters Send Knight to Washington; Billboards Stay
Wednesday, Nov 5, 2014

In a bitter showdown that pitted two Republicans against each other to succeed Buck McKeon in Congress, state Sen. Steve Knight defeated former Sen. Tony Strickland 53.5-46.5 Tuesday. Strickland, who was McKeon’s pick, outspent his opponent 5-1 but was hampered by the fact that he didn’t live in...

What a Night | Commentary by Darryl Manzer

I know those of us who supported Measure S will be gracious in defeat as I hope those who worked for its failure will be in victory … Nope, didn’t happen. Already got the first sarcastic post asking, “Can you hear us now?” So now we have the billboards for at least another year. What is another...
