In response to Saturday's article by Josh Premako regarding the development along Lyons Avenue ("Developer offers project," April 18), I happen to reside next to the proposed project at Lyons Avenue and Arcadia Street. While the concept drawing shown in The Signal is indeed a beautiful building, it is at best only an artist's rendering and does not show any of the detrimental effects that will be brought to the neighborhood on the Arcadia side of the project.
From the smoldering wreckage that was the Republican Party, a Phoenix is rising with wide-spread wings and a mighty resolve.
The nation's top dog has deeply disappointed the homeless dogs of America and their supporters.
California voters are fed up. And they should be. The quacks who occupy the chairs in the state Senate and Assembly have driven our state's financial train to a wreck, and even Arnold Schwarzenegger has broken the tax-cutting promises that transformed him into the Governator. Maybe we should have seen his tag line coming: "I'll be back - with a tax hike." Now these jokers are asking you, the voters and taxpayers of this once-fine ...
The official sample ballot for the state special election on the propositions just arrived in my mail. The Proposition 1A spending measure and five other propositions are up for vote May 19.
What was once an oasis of new and exciting ideas is now a desolate wasteland. No longer do Hollywood studios produce creative movies with innovating plots and dynamic characters. But why is this so? Is it simply the fact that every creative idea for a movie has been used? I do not believe so. The commissioner of the U.S. Patent Office, Charles H. Duell, stated, "Everything that can be invented has been invented." The irony ...
As of April 1, California's sales tax increase went into effect, raising Santa Clarita from 8.25 percent to 9.25 percent.
The city of Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival is an exciting community event ingrained in Santa Clarita tradition. Year after year cowboy enthusiasts and city slickers from across the country make the trek to Melody Ranch Motion Picture Studio - the picturesque backdrop that allows guests to step back to a simpler time of chaps, saddles and old-time saloons.
The Earth Day Fair, that is! The city of Santa Clarita will hold its very first Earth Day Fair at Central Park this Saturday (more info on the city's Web site at www.santa-clarita.com).
Immediately after the launch of George W. Bush's Iraq War II, war boosting bumper stickers appeared on cars like so many Lakers Flags during NBA playoff season.
Editor's note: Late-breaking news Monday revealed that CalFire had changed its mind and rescinded its letter demanding payment from Carousel Ranch. Reading the newspaper may be diminishing among those younger than 30, but our three newspapers are an integral source of news for my husband and me.
The phone call came about 8 p.m. last Monday. I know because we were all sitting down to watch Chuck, the story of a nerd-turned-spy. Chuck is one of those rare TV shows that combines humor, action and character development without sacrificing too many family values.
The Myers Clan-California branch will launch another child out of high school this spring and into college in late summer.
Last month Amanda Larrson-Dally, a 17-year-old Canyon High School student, and her parents filed a report at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station after teacher Mike Motherspaw crumpled up her request to interview one of his students and tossed it - allegedly at Larrson-Dally - in front of his class.
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.
The new requirements for No Child Left Behind waivers from the Department of Education have some bad news for America's teachers.
Republicans have largely squandered an August that should have been spent preparing the American people for a showdown with Democrats over the president's health care law.
Junior and Missy's parents are driving them 12 hours away from their hometown to The University of Getting Out of My Parents' House. Sure, there are plenty of local community colleges and state schools they could have attended, but then they would have to come home every night to live with those stupid cash machines who raised them.
When I drive by the construction area of what will soon become the downtown Newhall roundabout - not to be confused with any medical-related term that shares the DNR acronym - I am reminded of the words of our illustrious Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
