Too Dark on Wiley Canyon Road

There's darkness in my neighborhood and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed. I don't understand it, but Wiley Canyon Road from Lyons Avenue to Old Orchard is dark, dark, dark. Except for light at intersection, the street is cloaked in black at night.

Get the facts straight

I am writing in response to Susan Stamper Brown's commentary on Dec. 19 ("Climate change rules coming"), in which she bemoans the fate of the United States as we attempt to make some kind of dent on the production of greenhouse gases.

Aristotle, the ancient philosopher, is right on the money when he considers the nature of racism. A person's skin color is nothing but an accidental occurrence.

Thanks to my guardian angel

Yes, I believe in angels, since I met one accidentally on Sierra Highway recently when my car hit a rock in the road.

Pay inequality is not a myth of the liberal left

Leveling the playing field has been a struggle our country has mightily faced throughout history, but denying the existence of inequality creates an even larger hurdle.

Electronic billboards are digital distractions

One certainly wonders what the great minds behind the idea of electronic signs along the freeways running through Santa Clarita are thinking.

Connecting with the liberal mind

With regards to Linda McCaskill and Curt Scott's criticism of Rob Kerchner's claim to know what liberals are thinking, I guess I have to agree with them, because I often wonder "What in the world are they thinking?"

Apathy is alive and well in the SCV

I have always said, as my dad would say, "If you don't vote, then keep your mouth shut."

What about the car drivers in motorcycle accidents?

Robert Burton wants to ban motorcycles from public streets because of the many accidents and even fatalities involving motorcycles, and because he saw a rider riding on the back wheel only, and because motorcycle riders cost our state many dollars in hospital bills.

A recent letter-to-the editor ("We need more transparency in our elections," April 1 in The Signal) authored by a Democrat, chided Republicans in general and Assemblyman Scott Wilk specifically for the failure to pass "Disclose Act, SB52," purportedly a bill intended to put sunlight on "dark money."
