It's not a great surprise that Chicago didn't get the Olympics. According to Forbes, it is the third worst of the most miserable cities in the U.S., listed as such in part due to the high rate of corruption in state and local government.
I would like to tell you why to vote for Linda Valdes for Hart School Board on Nov. 3. Ms. Valdes is active in our community and led an effort for $300 million for funding for Castaic High. That's a lot of money for students. She has been a teacher for 12 years now. I was in her class two years ago and she's awesome! We went on class trips and she taught us lots ...
In these tough economic times, saving for your child's college tuition might seem like a daunting task, but it's more important than ever.
Living in Placerita Canyon is wonderful. I have never in 15 years had a problem exiting the canyon over Sierra Highway to Highway 14. But in the last two months, don't try to do it on the weekend or late at night. You will sit there forever.
Your vote is important! Do you know about "One Valley, One Vision," - the new General Plan for the Santa Clarita Valley?

What a disappointment the Festival of the Arts was in Downtown Newhall Oct. 3-4. It's certainly not like the days when it was on Town Center Drive. As a group, we were looking forward to the event, but the caliber of artists and the staging of the event left much to be desired.
I have just finished reading "What an 'uninformed and irresponsible' column" (The Signal, Oct. 5) written by P. Michael Freeman, Los Angeles County fire chief in response to Cam Noltemeyer's offending "Buyer beware in fire country" commentary (The Signal, Sept. 24).
Perennial intellectual lightweight Sarah Palin's first brush with China did not make her many friends.
I read Tim Myers' "The preferred answer is not always the right one" Opinion column in The Signal, Oct. 4, and I must tell you, I'm left in stark wonder. What is this guy rambling on about?
This is just a short letter to let you all know how important it is to have health/reform. I just came back from Scotland visiting my mom who had a stroke. I could not believe what great care she received from INS. I also have a nephew who has had Crohns disease since he was 15 years of age. He is now in his 30s and has had the best of care. They don't need ...

Waiting in line for the bus, a Pennsylvania kindergartener tells her pals she's going to shoot them with a Hello Kitty toy that makes soap bubbles. In Maryland, a 6-year-old boy pretends his fingers are a gun during a playground game of cops and robbers.

Webster's dictionary has several different definitions for the word socialism. The one conservative fear and loathe the most is:
oy, do I feel sorry for smokers these days.
I was annoyed and saddened by a comment demeaning the Signal: "The Signal is biased, ignorant and often inept at reporting news."
