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.

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.

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.

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."

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."

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.

Clueless president

In a stunning display of utter cluelessness, while addressing the graduating class from the Coast Guard Academy, President Barack Obama made the astonishing statement that "climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security," and that disagreeing with him on the issue "is a dereliction of duty. ... Denying it or refusing to deal with it endangers our national security."

Parking at the Summit

This is in response to Bob Comer's letter on the Summit. I have lived in the Summit for 30 years and have been very upset by our entrance being trashed and made into a COC parking lot. I have spoken with our city council members many times and were told they would change it into a no parking zone from Monday to Friday. The city passed making the street into a no parking zone, but at our last HOA Board meeting three of our Summit Board members decided they liked the idea of parking and trash and voted against ...
