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.

David McCann: Address the real problems

I just finished reading Susan Stamper Brown's piece about not trusting our government (Santa Clarita Valley Signal, 2-18-14); and, while I could not agree more with you on some of your points, I could not disagree more with you about your reasons for making those points.
