What does the future hold: freedom or enslavement?

As a conservative giving thanks for freedom this Thanksgiving (with liberals elsewhere giving more thanks for security/equality, perhaps?), I began to wonder what Signal readers would predict for the world 100, 500, or 1,000 years hence.

Where do the balloons go?

Releasing dozens of balloons at football games, as Hart did against Upland, may add a festive note, although few seem to even notice, but what happens to the balloons?

Learn of, don’t condemn, other faiths

The recent column by Diana West ("Islam comes to the national cathedral," Nov. 20) and the letter to the editor by Gordon Katz ("At war with the world," Nov. 26) are prime examples of people trying to find simple solutions to complex issues.

No man is above the law

I just read Charlie Vignola's column (Charlie Vignola: Bridging the gap on immigration, 820 words of cheerleading for Obama's illegal and unconstitutional seizure of power from Congress to make laws, and his refusal to follow his constitutionally defined duty under Article 2 that "the laws be faithfully executed" by refusing to enforce current immigration law, a big problem as noted even by noted (liberal) legal scholar Professor Jonathan Turley of George Washington University Law School (

On op-eds and real issues

I must say that Gary Horton's op-ed in the Feb. 18 issue of The Signal ("Hugs, not hate, to relate") was an outstanding lesson in how not to write an op-ed piece and is an outstanding illustration of what is wrong with the dialog in America these days.

Parole for a savage murderer? Outrageous

I can't imagine myself, a diehard Republican, thanking a Democratic governor, or any Democrat, for anything, but I am thanking our governor, Jerry Brown, for denying parole to "former" Mexican Mafia leader Rene "Boxer" Enriquez, a twice-convicted murderer amongst his many other and numerous violent crimes and convictions.

I'm still smiling about the Throwback Thursday (Feb. 12) piece regarding SINA accusing our community of demoralizing our four-legged animals by not having them wear proper clothing in order to maintain a certain amount of modesty.

Let’s get serious about saving water

With the second snow survey of the Sierra snowpack at 25 percent of the historical average, the likelihood of a fourth year of drought for California, and talk about possible water rationing, I think it's time we look at attaining our current goal of a 20 percent reduction by all residents of the Santa Clarita Valley, both private and public.

A real solution to state water shortage

On Jan. 11, The Signal published an opinion column by Cher Gilmore ("The best fix for farmers' water problems") in which she advocated raising a bunch of new taxes - under the guise of various "fees," of course - to allegedly address the state's water shortfall problem that is supposedly due to "climate change."

Slipping away to Inequality for All

Gary Horton's Feb. 4 Signal column ("America clings and slips away") about the deterioration of our country was so "right on" it saddened me. It paralleled the documentary "Inequality for All."

The great accounting will come for us all

Just having seen the news story about President Obama's denial of Jordan's request for military and humanitarian aid and the administration's refusal of basic military aid (e.g., ammunition, helmets, night vision goggles, body armor) to our brave

AB 109 not at fault in Warner case

A former state assemblyman recently wrote that he voted against Assembly Bill 109 when it was presented to the Legislature in 2011. Unfortunately, the assemblyman seems to misunderstand what AB 109 did.

The Signal's front-page photo on Saturday, Jan. 31, showing the line of Santa Clarita volunteers eager to count the homeless population is heartening.
