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? We will need leadership that will do their due diligence on the new General Plan and work to protect their constituents from the proposed increased density/developments in our valley. Higher density/development will mean even more traffic congestion on our already overburdened roads. Roads in general are not keeping pace with current growth and ...
Please take a moment to look at all the people who have died as a result of not having insurance. I have good insurance, but my daughter passed because she didn't have Medicare until it was too late.
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 ...
If anyone is still unconvinced about the misdirection of Hollywood's "moral compass," the Roman Polanski situation should help you see the double standard for which they and their ilk are famous (or infamous).
Where has all the patriotism gone? Since the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001, the displaying of the American flag has dwindled to where there are very few flags being proudly flown from residences. When 9/11 happened, everybody was displaying the flag from every house, rooftop and car window in town.
Your baby might be real cute, but I don't want to hold it. It's not personal. When I got a new car, I didn't ask people if they wanted to drive it. When I got my wife, I didn't ask people if they wanted to date it. The car and the wife are mine. And your car and your wife are yours. If a friend asked me to drive his new car, I'd say to ...

I became upset when I got word.
The student government at UCLA recently resolved to ban the term "illegal immigrant" because they consider it "racially derogatory language" which has led to "racial profiling practices, punitive policies targeting socially marginalized groups, hate crimes and violence."
In his letter to the editor in the Aug. 29 edition of The Signal, Brian Springer credits "The Butler" movie as truthful. It is not.

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.
