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.

‘No on Prop. 8’ rally turns violent

Radical members of the "No on 8" campaign in California have quickly turned their disappointment over the reinstatement of traditional marriage into rabid hostility.

I'm amazed by liberal semantics

Interestingly, the lead article on Oct. 17 read "Baby killer gets 25 to life." Indeed, the mother was convicted of killing her baby shortly after birth and tossing the lifeless body into a trash bin.

Thanks, firefighters

I am writing about the fires we have seen throughout the Los Angeles area. The firefighters have done a terrific job of keeping the fire contained. We have a great fire department that reacts to any threat from fires very seriously. I can say that I feel safe with them doing their job.

Palin is wrong choice for vice president

John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin for the office of the vice president is disrespectful to the American people as well as the office itself.

Can’t America improve a bit?

In the Aug. 16 edition, Frank Arenson in a letter to the editor stated that Barack Obama told a 7-year-old girl he is running for President of the United States because "the country isn't very good."

COC’s Board of Trustees is impotent to effect change

During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.

Culture at COC needs healing

Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.

Ah, if it were only possible

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."

O.J.: All about intercollegiate athletics

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.

I appreciate Jim Holt's presence at the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees meeting last Wednesday and his subsequent article, "COC showdown" (June 12).

The latest assignment some sixth-grade students got in one of our local schools is "Atrocities committed by our troops in Vietnam."

Trading fiasco

The best description I have heard of the recent fiasco of trading prisoners is that we have exchanged five hand grenades for a squirt gun.

Daniel Wani, an American citizen living in New Hampshire, was not able to celebrate Father's Day with his wife and two tiny American children.

COC needs to speak with honesty and fairness

Jim Holt's June 10 article "COC faculty rejects contract" attempted to offer a fair view of the dissension that has developed between college administrators and the full-time faculty.

Bergdahl’s a deserter

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).
