I mentioned in an earlier letter to the editor that Alice and I are part of the volunteer group at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center helping during lunch.
Man, we sure do have a lot of self-appointed experts on climate change in this valley!
I just finished reading Kevin Buck's column (The Signal, March 24, "The show must go on"), in which he virtually chortled aloud at the internal rifts within the GOP that are giving Boehner and McConnell such headaches in trying to enact legislation.
The Santa Clarita City Council got it right by giving the red light to the traffic camera program ("Full stop for red-light cams," Wednesday's Signal).
I have never written a letter to the editor before, but after returning from my daily walk and reading the March 18 article about the local water agencies' efforts in water conservation (The Signal, "State gets tougher on water wasting"), I feel compelled to do so.
Over the last couple of weeks The Signal has published several letters and/or columns discussing the issue of teaching "global warming" and/or "climate change" to kids in our schools.
With respect to Kevin Korenthal's March 20 Signal column, "California's high-speed rail dilemma," here are a few more pertinent facts.
Regarding "J.R.'s Funnies" in SCV Connect: Thanks, Randy Lubas.
We have to stop Big Oil from shipping its highly explosive fracked oil through Santa Clarita.
A new CNN/ORC poll shows Hillary Clinton dominating the Republican field ... which pretty much explains the Republican obsession with Benghazi and any other eye-roller of an allegation they can come up with.
There are sections of Mr. Smith's article about what grade school students should learn ("Teach both climate change and critical thinking," March 13 in The Signal) that would be agreeable to everyone.
Once again, Santa Clarita Valley citizens are in an uproar with this chloride nonsense. And what a bunch of gobbledygook it is. It's a solution seeking a problem.
I first moved to Newhall in 1951 and started working in the oil fields.
Terri Lovell's "Right Here, Right Now" column last Friday was outstanding. It should have been on the front page.
"It is not the responsibility of 'climate realist' scientists to prove that dangerous human-caused climate change is not happening. Rather, it is those who propose that it is, and promote the allocation of massive investments to solve the supposed 'problem,' who have the obligation to convincingly demonstrate that recent climate change is not of mostly natural origin and, if we do nothing, catastrophic change will ensue. To date, they have utterly failed to do so."
Our nation is about to celebrate its birthday. Thank G-d for this event.
Lois Eisenberg's June 25 letter to the editor in the June 25 Signal, "Single flag should fly to represent U.S. unity,' seem so very correct, but her reasoning about the Confederate flag is, I think, a bit off.
I wish to express a heartfelt "thank you" to all of the firefighters who battled the Calgrove fire with such skill and dedication.
In reading in Jonathan Kraut's previous biographies that he is a veteran and former Army Ranger, I am going to do my best to not personally insult him. I will not go into a long diatribe regarding his article "The price being paid for poor policy" (June 23 in The Signal), but there are three things Mr. Kraut wrote that I wanted to comment on.
The people we send to D.C. are not exceptional persons. They are just like us except for one thing. They have an extreme desire for power and money.
First of all, I would like to congratulate South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley for taking a stand to have the Confederate flag removed from South Carolina's Capital.
We have no doubt that future generations will drive the country, and we must provide our children with strong incentives to learn greatly to compete in this world.
California is hit by a severe drought; water-saving measures are in effect. For our well-being, we have to take action to save water.
The Consumer Protection Amendment has been brought forth in California to strike a balance between vaccine mandates and the absence of vaccine manufacturer liability highlighted by Senate Bill 277.
Editor's note: Corrects letter to reflect that End of Life Option Act is under consideration in Legislature and has not passed both houses.
Thank you for an intelligent and fact-filled op-ed titled "Climate Science and Professional Deniers" published Saturday in The Signal.
Wow. In The Signal's online edition of June 9, we were treated to a Democratic two-fer: Charlie Vignola's "Surprise: Obamanomics has been working" and Gary Horton's "Argh, the frustrations Americans face."
The headline of Dick Polman's column states in large bold print, "Conservative trolls go after Beau Biden" (Signal's June 4 Opinion page).
The other day I was really down in the dumps and feeling lost about our political situation. If you put a label on me I guess it would read, "Liberal without hope."
I read The Signal to keep current with local news, events and issues.
