Tuesday's election reminded us of a recent letter to the editor which asked, in essence, "Do you mean to say I need to read The Signal to know what's going on in the Santa Clarita Valley?"
We are a nation built upon the sacrifices of soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. At the end of the day, that is the bloody truth, and no espousing of political ideologies either pro- or anti-war can change it. From the sands of Iwo Jima to the deserts of Iraq, from the bitter cold of Korea to the jungles of Vietnam, our fellow Americans have served selflessly, many paying the ultimate price. We owe much to ...
I am frankly amazed that you would select Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon as member No. 5 on your list ("51 Most Influential People").
The story in The Signal on Tuesday ("Post office thinks twice," Nov. 3) brought back an experience I had with the U.S. Postal Service in 2004.
With all the improvements already made to beautify and improve the downtown Newhall business community, with taxpayer money
Regarding "City defends English forms," The Signal, Nov. 1: It seems to me that the plan to revitalize downtown Newhall is attempting to pound the final nail in the coffin of many small businesses. By not providing the grant request forms in Spanish, the city is essentially guaranteeing that the businesses most in need of grant money will not have the information needed to apply. Maybe the reason the city has not received requests for ...
Just came across Bruce McFarland's column ("Remembering my mother, the activist," Oct. 20) about his mom (Jeannette McFarland) the activist.
My boy's father died last weekend. Yesterday was the first day my son decided to go out and skate again in our skatepark. To make his day a little better, I gave him $5 for food. He went to McDonald's and ordered two orders of french fries and two McDoubles, with no cheese and ketchup only. He went back to explain that his order was wrong (they had pickles and cheese).
Editor's note: The following letter contains graphic content regarding local school reading assignments. We believe the public knowledge of what students were told to read outweighs the potential of offending some of our readers.
Kevin Buck needs to expand his horizons. His recent local commentary ("A tale of core conservative values," Oct. 27) about conservatives was entertaining at best, the best being his interjection about his dad telling him a person would be judged by the company of people he keeps. I am glad he learned that from his dad, a very wise man. President Barack Obama also told us to do this. Buck says he has never voted ...
I renewed my passport at the official government Web site and learned it would take 10 weeks to receive it. How long would a private business last with this kind of service? Is this the kind of inefficiency we want controlling our health care?
Can the baseball editor (or knowledgeable sports writer) please explain to me why the Major League Baseball Championship is called the World Series? Other than Canada (I think), there are no other countries participating in the U.S. Major League Baseball.

"Libraries are community treasure chests, loaded with a wealth of information available to everyone equally, and the key to that treasure chest is the library card. I have found the most valuable thing in my wallet is my library card." - Former First Lady Laura Bush
Right now we have an economy in transition, with close attention paid to job reports and which business sectors are hiring.
As President Obama considers retaliating against the Syrian government for the alleged use of chemical weapons against its people, I couldn't help but think about the lessons we should have learned following the Iraq War.
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.
