Jennifer Kilpatrick: Make the Sterling-Gateway site work for Castaic

Sitting by the beautiful waters of the Colorado River, I should be serene. But I was foolish enough to read the July 16 edition of The Signal, containing Hart district Superintendent Jaime Castellanos' disingenuous statement to the Castaic community: "I've gone as far as I can go," a frustrated Castellanos told The Signal in an interview. "Now I need the support of the (Castaic Area) Town Council and the community to make this happen."

Tim Myers: Get used to taking orders from women

Say what you will about Carrie Prejean - the former, then reinstated, and again former - Miss California, but I must grant kudos for her on the fly invention of the term "opposite" marriage to describe traditional marriage between a man and a woman.

Gary Horton: Got our new street, now onto the landscape

David Hegg: Cause, effect and satisfaction

I grew up working odd jobs to earn money. In the winter I would go from house to house with my snow shovel, and in the summer you could find me wheeling my gas lawn mower down the block to service the five families that paid me to mow their lawns weekly.
