Proper honor and remembrance for the real heroes of our country

This weekend we pause to honor the memory of those who gave their lives in defense of America during our many armed conflicts. Originally proposed and celebrated in 1868, the day was known as Decoration Day. General John Logan commanded that the day was "for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country …" President Lyndon Johnson conferred national holiday status on the day in 1966.

The City of Santa Clarita has maintained that since it does not receive a stop it should not be adversely affected by the system.
