Editor's letter

It's been 50 years since the Watts riots in Los Angeles, on August 12, 1965. I received two submissions from community contributors retelling their memories of that chaotic event. Both stories show how even in the worst of times neighbors and communities can come together to support each other.

Watts riots remembered

This time of year brings back so many memories of when I was 13 years old. My Dad, a Caucasian man, a WWII veteran and father of six children owned and operated a paint manufacturing company located at 1911 E. 92nd St., Los Angeles, just shy of the official Watts borders. It was called Willis-Moore Paint Specialties, Co. Willis-Moore had long become a mostly steel building due to a 4th of July firecracker that had caused part of the building to burn down.

Learn the truth about the immature teen brain on pot

For the past four years, the City of Santa Clarita has hosted a hard-hitting drug awareness program that focuses on relevant issues being seen with teens and drug abuse. With the timeliness of marijuana in the news, it seems many have forgotten the true dangers about what smoking can do to the body and to a person's judgement.
