You'll often hear those who disdain the wealthy or big business or insurance companies complain about the concentration of power in such entities.
Once again I feel the need to respond to a recent misguided letter ("Sulpizio a 'rabid Democrat,'" Letters to the Editor, The Signal, Sept. 13). Matt Diederich, who quite apparently was not at John Dean's recent talk, made assumptions simply not based in fact.
On Sept. 4, when the temperature was 104 degrees, a group held a rally and marched to Buck McKeon's Santa Clarita office.
In a recent Letter to the Editor of The Signal ("Lunetta logic is off," Sept. 13), Patricia Sulpizio wrote that much of the late Senator Ted Kennedy's legislation was Christ-like.
Mr. Lamoureux, Congratulations on your 100th column. I have a question about my wood flooring that is turning into a nightmare. We have a portable air conditioner that we purchased for our bedroom and have been using almost 24 hours a day for the last month. I leave it on when I go to work so it will be cool when I get home. Unfortunately, the unit leaked water onto my wood floors and they ...
ATM troubles While waiting in line for the drive-up ATM, the woman a few cars in front of me struggled from the driver's seat of her vehicle to reach the buttons on the machine. So she stepped out of the car and accomplished the transaction on foot, accidentally bumping her door shut. The automatic door locks went into effect, locking all four doors and her baby inside. After failing to coach the baby into unlocking ...

Angela Fisher has gone to Our Lady of Perpetual Help's carnival since she was 9. Now, the 14-year-old volunteers in hopes that she can provide the same sense of fun that she felt as a younger child.
Surely, when Diane Fiero said that "the goal is always to put the best instructor in front of the class and its students," she wasn't implying that part-timers lost their jobs (and full-timers didn't) because part-timer instructors are inferior in the classroom ("COC cuts fewer than expected," The Signal, Sept. 14).
Watching the recent 2009 U.S. Open tennis matches was truly a "love match." For the moment took away the woes of our troubled society.
After reading Tim Myers' commentary in Sunday's Signal several times ("Credit is due: the revenue side," The Signal, Sept. 6), I was still trying to understand the point he was attempting to make.
The city of Santa Clarita should be commended for their about-face on the striping of Decoro to add bicycle lanes. The residents showed up in force at a community meeting and voiced their collective frustrations to the city's leaders. Surprisingly, they listened.
Robin Shane photographs a mural, on the underside of a bridge, depicting the history of the area and the Oak of the Golden Dream, where California gold was discovered in 1842.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama gained ground Tuesday in his drive for congressional backing of a military strike against Syria, winning critical support from House Speaker John Boehner while key Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed to back a no-combat-troops-on-the-ground action in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack.

Princess Cruises has appointed Stuart Hawkins as senior vice president of Health, Environment, Safety, and Security Compliance.
If you question New York City's Stop and Frisk policies, you might consider the constitutionality of Santa Clarita's DUI checkpoints. What justification is there for stopping over a thousand cars when there is absolutely no reasonable cause? Just because we have a federal grant, Do we have to spend taxpayer money to cite a single DUI? Some may argue that it takes just one drunk to run over a child, but I'd ask what percentage ...
Our President Barack Obama is asking the Congress' vote. It's legitimate. If we have the proof that Syria killed children and adults with chemical weapons don't we have to intervene? I understand this time France would be our ally if we decide to save lives.
Junior and Missy's parents are driving them 12 hours away from their hometown to The University of Getting Out of My Parents' House. Sure, there are plenty of local community colleges and state schools they could have attended, but then they would have to come home every night to live with those stupid cash machines who raised them.
When I drive by the construction area of what will soon become the downtown Newhall roundabout - not to be confused with any medical-related term that shares the DNR acronym - I am reminded of the words of our illustrious Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
This summer, the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce will host the third annual Patriot Luncheon on July 11 at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich will address the Santa Clarita Valley business and community leaders on May 1 at the fifth annual State of the County Luncheon.
We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
