Recently, people asked for more detail on Measure S, the rebates to homeowners with automatic water softeners. I'm happy to provide some more information.
Ten reasons to vote "no" on the $300 million Measure SA bond:
I am a junior attending Saugus High School. This past year, I have become especially interested in the politics of our country, state and city.
There have been several sites proposed for a new Castaic high school. We now have a new proposed site that needs to be fully examined and pass many reviews by local and state agencies.
I am so appalled and tired of hearing that if we as a society do not accept gay marriage as normal, we are somehow racist.
The La Mesa Associated Student Body (ASB) class is proud to support Bond Measure SA.
What religion do Prop. 8 supporters adhere to that ignores the commandment to love they neighbor as thyself?

At the start of World War II, my father was a young teenager going to a boy's boarding school.

We at PFLAG do not have the money to run a full-page ad, but here are some things I would like you to know: Prop. 8 is simple. It changes the state Constitution, preventing marriage for gays.
The big question is: If the educators in their TV ads, mail, etc., are saying that a "yes" vote on Prop. 8 will not affect the schools, why are they spending more than $1 million in union dues to fight it?
What most people fail to take into consideration in the Prop. 8 debate is that it was God who initiated and defined marriage, not man.
