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.
Our hearts go out to the family. We have some questions about all that happened to Jeremiah.
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!
Of course it matters to Americans if the vice president's 17-year-old, unmarried daughter is pregnant.
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.
There are those who are criticizing Tony Strickland for personally investing in and promoting renewable energy.
I would like to thank all of you who share my vision of creating a veterans' museum here.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
I have a problem with the media being so divisive, especially concerning race.
I read with interest the article in the May 26 issue of The Signal ("Pavley's bill would change charter school law") about the bill introduced by California Sen. Fran Pavley regarding charter schools.
