This letter is for the person who found my purse. I accidentally left my purse in a shopping cart at the Ralphs in Castaic recently. I really want to thank whoever it was who found it and turned it in.
As I read the morning paper a few days ago, I was shocked at the story of a 14-year-old's suicide in our local school after much teasing by fellow students and nothing done about it.

However, besides tracking all the important partisan races in the national and local spotlights, Californians are once again being asked to do their Legislature's job and vote on 12 ballot propositions.
After reading Jim Holt's article "Castaic High site picked," dated Oct. 16, I was reminded how long it has taken to select a site for the high school.
It was disheartening to read The Signal's position (Oct. 19, "Our Response to Nov. 4's Propositions") on Prop. 3: The Childrens Hospital Bond Act.
It is indeed sad when persons of one particular political party decide to vandalize the private property of others here in the Santa Clarita Valley.

I am not willing to degrade my fellow adult human beings by denying their right to marry.
Should homosexuality be redefined to mean the same thing as heterosexuality and vice versa?
The vote for Measure SA will help our local schools stay at a level of excellence. This measure supports Santa Clarita Valley schools only. All students should get the learning opportunity they deserve. Measure SA will give students the opportunity to excel and learn within a more safe and secure learning environment.
The Signal editorial board, promising readers information to assist in choosing effective lawmakers, has endorsed Tony Strickland for the state's 19th Senate District.
Seems "Democrats" and others have something to learn about the "democratic process."
I don't know what is more annoying. Gavin Newsom's gravelly, whiny voice telling me gay marriage is gonna happen whether I like it or not, or the fundamentalists of SCV knocking on my door asking how I am going to vote.
I read in The Signal where George H. W. Bush, father of the infamous George W. Bush, "celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday by making a tandem parachute jump."
In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.

In his column today (June 10) entitled "Charlie Vignola: G.O.P. smears P.O.W.", Vignola launches into his usual anti-conservative anti-GOP invective, this time over the Bergdahl affair. It's just more of Vignola's signature ranting.
Even during the original ratifications, implementation of procedures and policies in our government faced changes to the Constitution (or Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781).
