Is it me, or is anyone else tired of being talked to like a three-year-old by Lynne Plambeck ("Mom, apple pie and water conservation," Jan. 28)? She calls my lawn useless and childishly reminds me to make sure to wash my dishes and clothes with a full load.
It was the early 1990s when retired Los Angeles police officer Bob Kellar began coaching a young man on how to apply successfully for a job as a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy.

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.
Visitors to the Valencia Library last weekend were greeted with a sweet surprise: icing-topped and candy-cane-lined gingerbread houses on display for what organizers hope will become a yearly Gingerbread House Contest.
The annual Metrolink Holiday Toy Express has been stopped in its tracks because of budget cuts.
I read that Supervisor Antonovich is again raising concerns about welfare fraud in L.A. County. This is typical of Republicans to go after the poor and by implication "them" - brown- and black-skinned people.
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.
With everything from nationally ranked academic programs to effective career education opportunities and college placement services, Hart district students are afforded every opportunity to excel in an increasingly competitive academic environment.
Whether priorities are schools, recreation or convenience and friendly neighborhoods, home buyers are finding that Fair Oaks Ranch by Pardee Homes fills the bill.
