The L.A. County Sheriff's Department increased its presence at a Santa Clarita high school Monday after a rumor quickly spread that a student was going to take a gun to school, officials said. “It's completely unsubstantiated,” said Sgt. Richard Nagler. “But because of a lot of press and Twittering and Facebooking and every other little communication device these kids have, it got around, so in order to quell this, we have additional deputies there at the school today.” Nagler said a student at West Ranch High School told school administrators Friday about overhearing another  student mentioning bringing a gun to school Monday.

School administrators in this case do not have a clue about being understanding. They need to be retrained in human relations.

This is regarding "A Bitter Pill" (Dec. 13), about Mexican-trained professionals, specifically medical doctors. It is a shame that these fine people have to beg to work for manual labor positions due to the existing "racial prejudice" mentality of Orange County. That does not speak well of our county, considering its wealth and the population being mostly of Latino descent. It is interesting to note that when Civil Rights Commissioner Phil Montez goes to audit universities on their "affirmative action" programs that the school administrators always claim that there are "not any qualified minorities to fill existing positions."
