Having just read Gary Horton's opinion piece ("'We' Dems overcome 'me' Reps," March 24), I am thunderstruck by the pure genius of his words.
This is ridiculous. I grew up here, and I have never heard of anything so stupid. (William S. Hart Union High School District officials) need to save $40,000. $40,000 between six schools is less than $7,000 per school.
My child is an eighth-grader this year, and I would like to see her graduate.
My daughter is in the seventh grade in the William S. Hart Union High School District. We talked about this yesterday. At a time when huge budget cuts have been made to California schools with more to come, we agreed that the focus should be on gratitude that we in this district are lucky enough to have great teachers, libraries, computers, safe campuses, etc.
I am writing to voice my anger and frustration at the William S. Hart Union High School District and its decision to cancel all junior high school graduation ceremonies.
Kudos to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau, regarding the cold case solved ("A cold case unraveled," March 19).
The community was abuzz last week over the decision to eliminate eighth-grade promotion ceremonies in the Hart district.
There is strength in numbers, and Santa Clarita's movers, shakers and decision-makers stood side-by-side in Sacramento last week to flex their muscles.
When you're hospitalized, it's often the little things that can make a big difference.
