First place My favorite holiday tradition is on Christmas. I like to deliver corn bread, pumpkin bread, cookies and muffins to my neighbors. I cook all these sweets so they're homemade. All of my neighbors want me to deliver that every year. My sister and I love to make and cook sweets. We make lemon squares, brownies, Christmas balls and lemon pudding. Our friends and family love it. We always give the fire department cookies ...
I do believe most of us are ready for 2008 to end and see some better New Year's resolutions in 2009, especially from our financial markets. Everyone I know is tired of seeing their 401(k) plan look like a 201(k).

At Fair Oaks Ranch Community School, there's always a question of character. Last week, students celebrated Character Counts Week in commemoration of the school's "six pillars" of character: Trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. "Character pillars are embedded in everything that we do at our school," Principal Marie Stump said. "The six pillars are reinforced on daily basis and are the core of our school discipline policies. This week was a celebration of these ...

The Vasquez High School principal states that Vasquez High School has a zero tolerance for bullies. If there truly was a zero tolerance policy in place, the bullying of the boy that committed suicide would not have continued on a daily basis.
In response to the editorial "Snippets? Associations? Who is Barack Obama?" (The Signal, Oct. 24): Mr. Eliasberg leads what he believes is a logical response to Obama's political moves, such as his snippets argument and denial of guilt by association. While these methods may be politically motivated, we should also examine what Mr. Eliasberg says about Mr. Obama.
Take heed, America, and listen to what Colin Powell, Secretary of State 2001-2005, retired general, and a Republican(!), had to say about why he is endorsing Barack Obama for President of the United States and why he is not endorsing John McCain.
I was extremely disappointed at the skewed and ignorant political mockery that went on during the Knotts Scary stage shows.
In his Sept. 28 column, Tim Myers addresses the Measure SA bond without the benefit of contacting my office or me directly. I wish he had given me the opportunity to review Measure SA with him and clarify many of his assumptions.
Our democracy is not perfect. No democracy ever is. The flaw is in the potential for manipulation from one group to overpower another. Monarchies have faced these problems ever since they first reared their ugly heads. The way to control this is through a constitution which is a composed of laws and guidelines that must be agreed to. We have a Constitution which I believe was inspired by more than mortal thought. When you read ...

As an independent still trying to decide, I try to read as many opinions as time allows. I found Tim Myers' column in the Sunday Signal to be offensive. He refers to people who don't see things his way as "kooks" or "cretins." About the Ayers/Obama relationship, as reported on Fox News, he writes: "Nobody with an IQ above room temperature will buy right now." This in spite of the fact that as recently as ...
Tim Myer's column (Oct. 19) would be positively breathtaking if it weren't so laughably predictable.
