What a shame that the Encinitas Union School District faces a possible lawsuit from the parents of the children there.
Friday night on Dec. 21, we had one of our annual candy cane giveaways for the homeless shelter.
I know there were reasons that "Follow the Star" was canceled this year by the church. You referred to plans in the recent Signal article for saving it in the future.
With his usual vitriol and high dudgeon, Charlie Vignola's anti-gun tirade ("What's needed to pass gun control laws?" Dec. 20) flies wide of the mark.
With the "Academy Awards" show fast approaching, I thought you fellow movie aficionados would be interested in knowing which movies we will have to leave our valley to see:

On a weekday, my 5,000-pound truck and I were making the turn from David Way, then left on Bouquet Canyon Road. Near Camp Scudder, I noticed a group of bicyclists on my right. They were in the bike lane and also on the roadway. I slowed and passed them.

Congratulations to Scott Wilk on his success in gaining the approval of the Higher Education Committee of the Assembly for AB 806.
I really have to wonder at what passes for thinking in liberals. In his column - or maybe "rant" would be more accurate - on Wednesday, Gary Horton goes on a wild spree of finger-pointing about the failure of new gun control legislation at the federal level.
