I am a junior attending Saugus High School. This past year, I have become especially interested in the politics of our country, state and city.
There have been several sites proposed for a new Castaic high school. We now have a new proposed site that needs to be fully examined and pass many reviews by local and state agencies.
I am so appalled and tired of hearing that if we as a society do not accept gay marriage as normal, we are somehow racist.
The La Mesa Associated Student Body (ASB) class is proud to support Bond Measure SA.

What most people fail to take into consideration in the Prop. 8 debate is that it was God who initiated and defined marriage, not man.
The question is whether we as a society are going to radically redefine the institution of marriage. It's not about my personal marriage, but the effects on our children, nation, and future generations.
Why is it that people are always against gays? They do nothing to you at all. They are just like you and me and they just want to live their lives and be with the people they love.
Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.
