Welcome to The-Signal.com's Daybreak, your point of entry for the day, and a quick journey through the past, present and future. Let the adventure begin:
If you lasted through the more-than-hour-long State of the Union speech last week, you heard President Barack Obama put a high priority on supporting small businesses and creating jobs.
Illegal immigration is illegal. I've got nothing but admiration for those who come here legally and become citizens. I've got a real problem with folks who come illegally, want to fly a flag other than the Stars and Stripes, use benefits that they've never contributed to, and won't learn the language.
Shame on Bruce McFarland, Laurie Ender and Frank Ferry for coming out against Kellar for stating what he feels to be true.
With California's water supply at a well-publicized crossroads, the past year has posed significant challenges to water professionals statewide, and the coming year promises a continuation of those challenges as well as a potential major turning point in the way our state manages this essential resource.
I would like to address the accusations made against Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar. At a Jan. 16 public meeting he said there should be only one flag flying over this country. I agree, the Stars and Stripes is the only flag that should represent the United States.
Bob Kellar's one man's opinion is guaranteed under the First Amendment of the Constitution.
I discovered the Santa Clarita City Council meeting (Jan. 26) too late.
In these times of political correctness, it is refreshing to see one of our local politicians has the guts to take a bold stance and stand up for something that others may consider too risky on which to take a public position.
While I fully support legal immigration, I am appalled by Bob Kellar's recent comment regarding immigration.
Mayor Laurene Weste; City Council members Frank Ferry, Marsha McLean and Laurie Ender, I am ashamed of you all for your cowardly lack of support for Bob Kellar.
