    SEAL shows patriotism through art
    MIDWAY CITY — For Pete Carolan, the killing of Osama bin Laden was a full-circle moment. The Irvine artist spent almost two decades in the Navy SEALs, the specialized combat wing that conducted the May 1 nighttime raid on the Al Qaeda leader's...
  • Attar on the right path

    The fact that Audie Attar has landed in Irvine, also known as America's Safest City, is more than just a little ironic considering where he's come from, where he's been. He's just 30 years old, but he's been around the world and back, both literally...
  • It's A Gray Area: My weekly column will become monthly

    In 2004, I took an unpaid leave of absence from my duties as a trial court judge and ran for U.S. Senate as a Libertarian. I knew I would not win the election, but I was so upset at the direction our country was headed that I wanted to be a part of the...

    I have always prided myself on being open-minded and fair, so it was with both surprise and shock that I read Mona Shadia's weekly column, "Unveiled: A Muslim Girl in O.C." I almost couldn't believe what I was reading: A Muslim telling me, a Christian,...
  • Commentary: We must invest in engineering, defense

    America avoided one catastrophe this summer when Congress raised the debt ceiling and averted the first default in U.S. history. But another calamity is waiting in the wings. The failure of the budget "supercommittee" puts in motion a trillion dollars...
  • On Faith: On not being religious but spiritual

    In my work in the interfaith community over nearly 30 years, whenever the subject of religion has come up, I've often heard this comment: "Well, I am not religious, but I am spiritual." My immediate reaction was to wonder what the speaker meant by that....
  • On Faith: It's time to think outside the box

    I tend to appeal to non-religious people. I often hear comments like, "I've never met a pastor like you" or "I didn't know a church like yours existed!" Honestly, I do not think that either I or Fairview is all that unique when it comes to pastors or...
  • Commentary: National security bill would not strengthen borders

    *Corrected: An earlier version of the piece misspelled the writer's name. As a veteran, the security of our country is of great concern to me. I served in the United States Army in Iraq, and I understand the sacrifice that is needed to protect this great...
