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.

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.

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.

The financial lesson is up to you

Can any financial institution make loans or ridiculous offers without a willing purchaser? Second question: Would you invest in a financial institution that showed poor profitability or one that was booming and was very profitable?

Please upgrade the Valencia Library

I think that the Valencia Public Library should be redone. The library is a great place to get books, especially in the bad economic times we are having.

Overspending, not Prop. 12, caused deficit

Democratic voice Cal Planakis predictably attempts to hide the real reason for California's current $15 billion deficit by blaming it on Proposition 13. The bright lights of actual budget numbers reveal the real culprits.

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.

Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.
