Students in Rob Collins' government classes--who debated Friday whether President Clinton should be impeached--aren't old enough to vote. But they are already cynical about politics. Lying and cheating are facts of life for children of the 1980s, children reared amid broken homes and tabloid television. "It's not that big of a deal," senior Ryan Marks said about the president's predicament. "Go watch Jerry Springer. It's the same thing every day."

Residents can get their feet wet in Simi Valley city government by volunteering for a two-year term on one of the city's four neighborhood councils. Members have a say in planning, development, traffic and environmental issues in their neighborhoods. The panels, which meet monthly, advise the City Council on issues that are important to their respective neighborhoods. The local councils also sponsor volunteer events and participate in the Community Emergency Response Team Program.

Republican Assembly candidate Tom McClintock on Monday announced that all five of his opponents in last week's GOP primary have endorsed him as the party's nominee for the seat being vacated by Assemblywoman Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills). "All of the candidates were gracious to come together like this," said Tony Strickland, McClintock's campaign manager. McClintock, who won the Republican primary handily, will face Democrat Jon M. Lauritzen in the November general election.

Scott Wilk, chief of staff to Assemblywoman Paula L. Boland, has decided to drop out of the race for her Assembly seat, saying he cannot stomach the "slash and burn" style of campaign he would need to defeat fellow Republican candidates. Wilk said he made his decision after former Assemblyman Tom McClintock's last-minute entry into the race in the 38th Assembly District, which includes Simi Valley, Fillmore and western portions of the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys.

With cash to spare halfway through the fiscal year, City Council members Monday voted to buy new shotguns for the Police Department, hire a new building inspector and give themselves laptop computers. The city's annual midyear budget review found Simi Valley's government flush with an extra $397,757 for the first half of the fiscal year. Most of the surprise revenue came from property taxes, rising along with home prices now that the local real estate market has emerged from its long recession.

There has been a lot of news lately about compensation levels in Simi Valley city government, particularly with regard to the high levels for our city manager and city attorney. Having been on the City Council for two years now, and having observed them closely, I think they're both doing very good jobs. But I also think it's important for people to understand that the present City Council has almost no power to reduce these salaries and benefits, which were set in concrete back in the 1980s.
