COC needs to focus attention on the students

I appreciate Jim Holt's presence at the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees meeting last Wednesday and his subsequent article, "COC showdown" (June 12).

O.J.: All about intercollegiate athletics

In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.

COC needs to speak with honesty and fairness

Jim Holt's June 10 article "COC faculty rejects contract" attempted to offer a fair view of the dissension that has developed between college administrators and the full-time faculty.

Bergdahl’s a deserter

In his column today (June 10) entitled "Charlie Vignola: G.O.P. smears P.O.W.", Vignola launches into his usual anti-conservative anti-GOP invective, this time over the Bergdahl affair. It's just more of Vignola's signature ranting.

Even during the original ratifications, implementation of procedures and policies in our government faced changes to the Constitution (or Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781).

Let’s hear it for government climate intervention

It was just so exciting to read how the White House and EPA will save the planet despite those nasty and ridiculous global warming and climate change deniers.

Compulsion is not compassion

The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn't work in meeting certain essential societal needs.

An all-consuming fire

Gary Horton's June 4 column "Embracing a fire that still burns us today" is his most articulate column yet, and is so right on!

Bergdahl and Obama deserve the same cell

Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.

Getting the story trumps getting the grammar right

I disagree with the gist of Rick Eaton's letter to the editor titled "Where are journalists learning their craft" (Sunday, Sept. 7). Eaton, simply, writes that our journalists on occasion make grammatical errors in their writings.

High speed on the tracks to a money pit

Cartoon was disrespectful

I don't get offended often or disgusted with things you put in your paper.

September 12, 2014 | Stella Pilarski Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Despicable cartoon

Your "Drawing Conclusions" cartoon published in the Sept. 7 Signal is a despicable, depraved, gross, gratuitous insult of three deceased, widely praised artists - along with an affront to your readers.

The American Dream gets stinky

I read Richard Myers' letter to the editor "Some solutions to the drought problem" in the Sept. 7 issue of The Signal. I have to admit it gave me quite a few chuckles.

Instead of spending $60 million of the taxpayers money to build a better road in Bouquet Canyon, use a little common sense and clean out the creek bed, even though it may break a few environmental extremists' hearts.

Where are journalists learning their craft?

As a former staff member on high school and college newspapers, I have to ask: Where are journalists learning their craft, and where are the editors?

September 07, 2014 | Rick Eaton Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


Some solutions to the drought problem

There is no question that we in California are experiencing what is fast becoming a disastrous drought. Farm crops are withering, salmon may find their waterways impassable, our lawns may turn brown, and our drinking water supply may become insufficient.
