Senior lunch menu
Sweaters are out in force, pumpkin patches have transformed into tree lots and our calendars are getting very thin, which means that the holiday season is upon us yet again.
Dates to watch
And from the desert of autocracy, a flower of democracy arises. Right before Thanksgiving, Jon Hatami, a deputy district attorney residing in the City of Santa Clarita, with roots in the community that date back to 1983, announced on Facebook that he would seek a seat on the City Council in the April 2012 election.
I am writing in response to the Nov. 25 article "Newcomer to seek seat," written by Jim Holt.
In an article this week in The Signal, Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, cites the Republican ban on earmarks for his failure to introduce a bill into the House of Representatives which would engage Cemex in a land swap to prevent mining in Soledad Canyon.

In response to "McKeon aims for state Assembly seat," Nov. 29:
Michele Bachmann opts to close our embassy in Iran. Hey, we haven't had an embassy in Iran for many years.
My name is Jonathan Ramirez, and I am currently a senior at Valencia High School. This letter is in response to the editorial released Nov. 27 titled "Our View: Why we need vigilance in D.C."
Once again, a big thank you to the Lions Club and all those that provided the "best of the best" Thanksgiving dinner for us at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center. This, I know, has been going on for 30 years.
The Nov. 21 column "Thank goodness Gingrich will never be president," written by Ann McFeatters, has got to be the most biased and blatant tunnel view of Newt Gingrich ever.
Few things bother me more than hypocrisy. I was raised in a very strict home in which all of the usual societal vices were forbidden. As the old saying goes, we were not allowed "to smoke or chew or go out with girls who do." Added to the list were prohibitions on alcohol, movies, playing cards, shopping on Sunday and a few other things that were branded as both unrighteous and downright dangerous to the soul.
