Teach our children well

Having grown up (near downtown) Los Angeles, it comes as no surprise to learn that children can be so cruel to others. Bullies are always with us, like bad weather.

Questions that remain

Our hearts go out to the family. We have some questions about all that happened to Jeremiah.

Edison overpowers community with towers

The recent Southern California Edison construction of the huge, overpowering lattice steel towers adjacent to my home is an abomination and a slap in the face to me and my neighbors!

Family life is important to Sarah Palin

Of course it matters to Americans if the vice president's 17-year-old, unmarried daughter is pregnant.

Community member for library expansion

Being an active member and resident in our community for over 10 years, a community liaison for McGrath Elementary School and an active member of the city-neighbor Valle Del Oro Committee, I definitely see the need for our Newhall library as part of the Newhall Redevelopment Project.

Renewable energy will renew our economy

There are those who are criticizing Tony Strickland for personally investing in and promoting renewable energy.

A veteran's museum in the Santa Clarita Valley

I would like to thank all of you who share my vision of creating a veterans' museum here.

We want to read more marching band stories

We enjoyed the article on Nov. 2 about the Hart High-sponsored Rampage competition, but many readers would appreciate regular coverage of the marching season for all local school bands.

Stick with your stylists in economic hardship

I am disappointed to see the media, both print and television, recommending that in order to save money, get your hair done at a discount hair cuttery (like Super Cuts or Fantastic Sam's) or even a beauty school.

I'm skeptical of what Obama will do

Well, the die has been cast. And, unlike many Democrats who revelled at our current president's problems and, hence, our country's as well, I sincerely hope our new president has success.

It’s finally time to end affirmative action

Now that we as a nation have elected a black man to the highest office in the land, can we finally say good-bye to affirmative action policies? No longer can the color of one's skin be used as an excuse for personal shortcomings.

Community failed Jeremiah’s parents

I was deeply saddened by the on-campus suicide of 14-year old Jeremiah Lasater. My sadness quickly turned to anger when I read about the emotional torture this child endured in front of everybody on the campus of Vasquez High School. Shame on the school board officials, teachers, parents and yes, the students at Vasquez High who either created or acquiesced to the environment at school that Jeremiah had to endure.

Don’t build schools on dead end roads, please

Why are all of the schools in Castaic except Live Oak Elementary built at the top of dead-end roads? These seem to be the most wasteful possible. Very few students can ride a bike or walk to these campuses; they all have to be dropped off and picked up. That's two trips up and two trips down every school day, adding vehicle emissions and wear and tear.

Valencia Library is fine just as it is

I just read the letter in the Nov. 6 paper requesting that the Valencia Library be updated to make it friendlier, like a Barnes and Noble bookstore.

Race is no longer an issue in America

I have a problem with the media being so divisive, especially concerning race.

Ballot language needs to change

An article in The Signal July 3, 2014, quoted the proposed ballot language for the billboard referendum on November's ballot: "Shall Ordinance No. 14-02 adopting a Development Agreement with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertisement structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?"

Let’s tap the Columbia River

Recently I was privileged to hear a presentation on the water crisis in our state, and also our problems here in Santa Clarita, regarding a shortage of water and an over-abundance of salt in our discharge into the Santa Clara River.

HOAs can and are getting on board with drought restrictions

"Following the water rules" (Thursday's Signal) expresses a legitimate concern of SCV HOA residents - they are concerned about penalties for letting their lawns go brown as they cut back water use - landscaping accounts for some 60 percent of residential water use - because associations have rules about care and upkeep of homes, landscape and lawns.

Take it to heart and conserve water

Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.

Treat refugees with compassion

The relatively small country of Italy (compared to the USA) has managed to take in more than 70,000 illegal immigrants (refugees) fleeing poverty, war and oppression in Northern Africa.

Legalize marijuana — but with restrictions

There is no doubt that the legalization of marijuana is gaining favor throughout the country, and I have to say that I am for it - but with some very strong reservations.

Let’s derail the train and desalinate ocean water

I have been agonizing over our water shortage issues for some time now, and am worried at the impact of having neighbor snitching against water using neighbors, and the hard feelings it may cause.

Terrorism poses threat to proposed high-speed rail

I am a new subscriber to The Signal. I missed your satirical editorial piece on July 13, which Michelle Boehm responded to in the July 20 issue of The Signal.

Send the children back home

Base Hart districts on the high schools

In my humble opinion, the most straightforward, simplest answer to the William S. Hart Union High School District going to board member representation by areas/districts would be to add two board positions.

Let’s use our solar energy for our water

It seems incomprehensible that with the great shortage of water for this state, trillions of gallons of water lie off the cost and remains unused by those affected most.

Snake alert

Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.

We deserve better

John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!
