Editor:

I want to thank the VFW Honor Guard, American Legion Riders, Carnegie Mayor Jack Kobistek and his lovely wife and everyone else who participated in the flag ceremony for my brother, Spec 4 Thomas Jester.

This is a wonderful tribute they are presenting in Carnegie.

Everyone should get involved. Call or stop at the VFW to pick up an application for a loved one who served or lost his life in combat.

You won't regret it.

It is a beautiful, moving ceremony that brings families and friends together to remember the veterans who fought to keep us free.

Response to July 4 letter

Editor:

I would like to respond to the unhappy Carlynton parent (“Carlynton parent unhappy with schools” — July 4 Signal Item).

I have lived in Carnegie all my life. My husband and I graduated from the Carnegie-Carlynton School District. We raised three wonderful children, and all of them graduated from this school district. My youngest daughter has three children enrolled in Carlynton, and they are involved in sports and other activities.

My husband and I have the opportunity to attend most of their functions and are so pleased at the dedication the faculty and staff show these students. They are all to be commended for their work.

If you are unhappy with the school district, my advice to you is to stop complaining, get involved or move. There are a lot of affordable places to live other than Carnegie.

I was thrilled that the board of education did not allow Rosslyn Farms to go into another school district. According to the board, to keep Rosslyn Farms in the Carlynton School District proves that our curriculum is as good as other school districts.

We are very happy with the Carlynton School District and the Carlynton School Board.
