Not only has the William S. Hart Union High School District failed to build the high school it promised, but the district has also failed to keep its promise to keep Castaic students together until the school is built.
Today, Santa Clarita stands just 15 days from the counting of the votes for the City Council election. I say vote-counting day rather than election day, because right now 70 percent to 75 percent of the votes cast for the 2010 election sit in the City Clerk's office or in the hands of the Postal Service.
It has been said the quality of life in Santa Clarita is high, but this is not because our City Council did this.
Two thumbs up for the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies who had a quick response to the call of a missing man at Whispering Oaks senior apartments on March 2. They were looking for a man missing that night from the apartment complex.
Trying to respond to Nancy Gauthier's letter ("Irrefutable evidence," Feb. 8), attacking George Bush, is akin to following her as she walks across the entire Santa Clarita Valley broadcasting bird seed and trying to pick it all up. I'll respond to what I see as her main point.

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).
