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.

Don’t get scammed

Correction: The following letter to the editor is being repeated because the wrong name of the writer was printed at the bottom of the letter when it was originally published on Wednesday. Albert Bigelow did not write this letter. The correct letter writer's name appears today.

Those WMDs surface in Iraq

Did anyone else note the TV newscast showing insurgents in Iraq opening the old bunker?

How can Steve Lunetta sleep at night?

There's nothing wrong with Mr. Lunetta questioning and challenging the assertions of the REMI report that a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have positive economic benefits as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (June 26, "The carbon tax has flaws").

SCV bike trails best in the West

I want to give big kudos to the Santa Clarita City Council past and present, the city manager and everyone involved in making the city bike/walking/running trails the fantastic network they are today.

Shane Vereen provides example for all youth

It's nice to see a positive article on the front page of The Signal about Shane Vereen ("Vereen brings it back," June 22).

A little respect, please

Once again, Councilman Bob Kellar slams his constituents by saying that many who signed the petitions to overturn the council's decision to permit digital billboard on our freeways were not fully aware of the full details of the proposal ("Billboard matter will be put to a vote," www.signalscv.com).

Let’s sue ‘em right back

Our city and local school districts should sue Shenkman & Hughes to force the Malibu-based law firm to stop its suits alleging bias in our election process unless they can prove discrimination against minorities.

Time to overturn Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision

I just wanted to point out the need to overturn the Citizens United decision of the United States Supreme Court in 2010.

On the rare occasion I see a sheriff's car in the area and can access the deputy, I thank them for their service and for driving my street, West Del Monte Drive.

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

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).
