Let's be civil

I agree with Gary Horton (Opinion, July 9). It seems though that our country is less civil. If I speak of our President, I will state "our President" or "Mr. Barack Obama."

We deserve better

John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!

City needs to say ‘yes’ to sick pay for part-time employees

The Signal reported on July 10 ("Bill would mandate sick pay for part-time employees") that the City Council voted to oppose Assembly Bill 1522 as the "...estimated financial impact to the city as a result of the bill could be as high as $180,000 per year."

Mind the speed limits and rest in peace

Since this is the time when a great many Santa Clarita families will be hitting the road on vacation, I thought I should share my recent experience with readers.

Time to withdraw the troops

I believe that we need to withdraw troops in Iraq now. It is a mistake for any troops to be there, and they are there in great peril.

Is it time for artificial turf?

I am sure the rebates on low-flow bathroom products has reduced water consumption considerably.

Tell the truth, Ms. Dupuy

On July 3, The Signal published a column by Tina Dupuy titled "Freedom for Hobby Lobby's religious rights."

Against all billboards

First of all, I am absolutely against all of the billboards in the Santa Clarita Valley - including the ones along the Metro right-of-way. I am also against the digital sign boards along the freeways.

Hooray for concerned U.S. citizens like Brian Baker

Brian Baker's column published in The Signal June 30 ("The IRS is far from earning back our trust") is spot on!

Many more bike trails in the works for Santa Clarita

A recent letter writer complimented Santa Clarita's trail system and inquired as to whether the city will be adding more trails, specifically near the Newhall Ranch Road underpass.

Let’s not expand our need for water during drought times

The city of Santa Clarita's response to my letter (June 23, "When will the city water medians responsibly?") regarding watering, the saving of water and new landscaping was full of details.

An open letter to motorists of the Santa Clarita Valley

Speeding, cellphone calling, texting, tail-gating arrogance, complete disregard for the other motorist and other numerous unsafe practices while driving that cause accidents - these have been my contention in many letters to the editor that I have submitted to The Signal.

Those WMDs surface in Iraq

Did anyone else note the TV newscast showing insurgents in Iraq opening the old bunker?

Don’t get scammed

Correction: The following letter to the editor is being repeated because the wrong name of the writer was printed at the bottom of the letter when it was originally published on Wednesday. Albert Bigelow did not write this letter. The correct letter writer's name appears today.

How can Steve Lunetta sleep at night?

There's nothing wrong with Mr. Lunetta questioning and challenging the assertions of the REMI report that a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have positive economic benefits as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (June 26, "The carbon tax has flaws").

Best of luck on Friday

Last year, during the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division semifinal playoff game, Valencia safety Jay Jay Wilson hit Saugus receiver Timmy Kahovec hard and was ejected from the game. While Vikings fans remain steadfast that it was a clean hit and Centurion fans remain resolute that it was targeting, it is important to remember that we are all friends and neighbors. With the rematch coming up on Friday (10/17), I hope we can put last year behind us and go into this game rooting for our respective teams with no hard feelings.

On intolerance

Interesting how Charlie Vignola reveals his own intolerance when in his commentary "None Dare Call It Bigotry," [10/14] he clearly verbalizes his own bigotry toward those with religious convictions. By Webster's definition, which he quotes, bigotry is intolerance with hatred. I happen to hold to those "ancient religious" ideals he mentions that God spelled out in both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible. I do so without hatred. Furthermore, tolerance speaks more of endurance than it does affirmation. But that's not what is so inflammatory about Vignola's argument.

Vote No on S

Our fair city of Santa Clarita negotiated a deal and passed an ordinance (3-1-a), with little to no public input, to construct three (3) huge, 2-faced, electronic billboards on our beautiful 5 and 14 freeways, in exchange for forcefully taking 40 billboards away from their longtime owners on Railroad - for unjust compensation. Only the honorable TimBen Boydston voted no. In the weeks preceding the hurried vote, SCV residents vocalized our opposition to the ordinance in chambers.

Word of the day fits the White House

Sunday I got my "word-of-the-day" on the Internet. The word was demagogue.

Why The Change?

If the City Council approved certain terms regarding the billboard issue, why were they changed?

Response to Gutzeit’s SCV Voices column

Obama remarkable accomplishments as president

Its a joke to read the rants of the right wing ancient white men on The Signal's website comments.

The problem with socialism

As is pretty common with Dem/socialists, Kevin Buck falls into the pit of conflating conservatism and Republicans in his Sept. 30 column in The Signal, "Six of one - half dozen of the other."

A water crisis solution

Vote like your life depends on it

Local, state and federal government in our country has grown to a size, strength and level of inefficiency unimagined by our founders.

The war on toys

We live in a world wracked by wars of all kinds: fatty foods, refined sugar, terrorists and climate.

Congratulations to the new William S. Hart Union High School District superintendent, Vicki Engbrecht. "Inspired" is the first word that came to my mind when I heard that Vicki was to be our new superintendent.

Big government and taxes

Gary Horton's commentary "We're marching off to war again" (Sept. 24 in The Signal) was unbelievable.
