Steve Lunetta: Uncle Earl stumps for Joe Messina

Some folks in our community claim to know my Uncle Earl. I wouldn't be surprised - he is often loud and abrasive in public places. Why, just the other day he was confronted by a group of pro-Obama protesters.

Michele E. Buttelman: Appreciate those who fought for your Labor Day

Laurene Weste: September is River Rally time in Santa Clarita

Cam Noltemeyer: Public shut out of developer needs process

After being away for a week I read with interest the Signal article "City OKs portion of fluid plan" regarding the 21-point stimulus package that appears to be missing the back up for point seven. So I made a point of watching the tape of the city council meeting. I checked the city council minutes of April 28, 2009. There it was, Economic Development 21-Point Business Plan for Progress. It received a unanimous vote from the city council. Along with that approval came $800,000 in funding, $500,000 from contingency accounts and $300,000 from LMD fund balance. Now ...

Gary Horton: Put a brick in it

They say we're headed for a pretty good rain later this week. The comfortable moisture on our skin and fresh scent in the air might have us feeling "everything's better again," but wishful thinking won't fill half-empty reservoirs.
