Thinking History: Ruiz Cemetery tells tragic story of dam disaster

I downloaded the directions and climbed in the car. Soon, I found myself 2.1 miles north of the intersection of Copper Hill and San Francisquito Canyon in Saugus. I had a picture of the site and it matched what I was seeing. Towards the west in the distance was the clump of trees I was aiming for, and if I squinted just right I could make out a white marker underneath. This was the place.

Valdes is the way to go

The residents of the Santa Clarita Valley deserve to know there is someone here who truly cares for our children and that someone is Linda Valdes. She is running for the William S. Hart Union High School District board and I cannot emphasize how lucky I feel that she is.

Christopher’s the one

On July 31 ("A school board election like no other"), The Signal blamed (Hart district Superintendent Jaime) Castellanos and his staff for not having the proper financial and "oversight responsibilities as well as misleading the public into thinking a $158 million bond measure would get the job done."

Abusing majority rule

Philosophically, Democrats have embraced the protection of minorities. This is something that Carole Lutness ("Majority rules in a democracy," Oct. 13) seemingly has overlooked. She laments the fact a simple majority in Sacramento's legislature cannot increase taxes; it takes a two-thirds majority. She advocates a simple majority rule and then claims she speaks for all of us. She doesn't speak for me.

Harvey Milk was a hero

As a product of the William S. Hart School District (Hart High Class of '02), I have never recalled spending an entire class period discussing the accomplishments of Ceser Chavez, Christopher Columbus or even Martin Luther King Jr. on their respective days. This has always been taught in our textbooks, whether mentioned in a section or a whole chapter devoted to the person.

Busting misconceptions about investor perceptions

We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines.
