It was a delight to have opposing views side by side on the same page Oct. 19: The Sunday Signal's Editorial Board view, "Vote 'yes' on Measure S," and William L. Blowers' "Why I'm voting 'no' on S."
Santa Clarita is surrounded by gorgeous open spaces and is one of the most beautiful cities in California.
I would like to express my opinion on this important matter, Measure S.
Very interesting comments from both Councilmen Bob Kellar and TimBen Boydston. And a little if not a lot of political spin from both. They sure like to throw numbers around.
I found it interesting that Councilman Kellar mentioned Councilman Boydston quite a few times in his argument in favor of Measure S. It's almost as if his opinion is an attack on another councilman rather than providing reasons to convince the voting public that the "deal" is a good one.
Interesting how Charlie Vignola reveals his own intolerance when in his commentary "None Dare Call It Bigotry," [10/14] he clearly verbalizes his own bigotry toward those with religious convictions. By Webster's definition, which he quotes, bigotry is intolerance with hatred. I happen to hold to those "ancient religious" ideals he mentions that God spelled out in both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible. I do so without hatred. Furthermore, tolerance speaks more of endurance than it does affirmation. But that's not what is so inflammatory about Vignola's argument.
Last year, during the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division semifinal playoff game, Valencia safety Jay Jay Wilson hit Saugus receiver Timmy Kahovec hard and was ejected from the game. While Vikings fans remain steadfast that it was a clean hit and Centurion fans remain resolute that it was targeting, it is important to remember that we are all friends and neighbors. With the rematch coming up on Friday (10/17), I hope we can put last year behind us and go into this game rooting for our respective teams with no hard feelings.
Our fair city of Santa Clarita negotiated a deal and passed an ordinance (3-1-a), with little to no public input, to construct three (3) huge, 2-faced, electronic billboards on our beautiful 5 and 14 freeways, in exchange for forcefully taking 40 billboards away from their longtime owners on Railroad - for unjust compensation. Only the honorable TimBen Boydston voted no. In the weeks preceding the hurried vote, SCV residents vocalized our opposition to the ordinance in chambers.
Sunday I got my "word-of-the-day" on the Internet. The word was demagogue.
It's been more than six months since Marine veteran Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been in jail in Mexico.
If the City Council approved certain terms regarding the billboard issue, why were they changed?
Its a joke to read the rants of the right wing ancient white men on The Signal's website comments.
In Maria Gutzeit's SCV Voices ("SCV has been shortchanged by its Sanitation District," Oct. 6) Ms. Gutzeit's characterization of the proposed changes to the salt (choride) requirements being considered by the Los Angeles Regional
As is pretty common with Dem/socialists, Kevin Buck falls into the pit of conflating conservatism and Republicans in his Sept. 30 column in The Signal, "Six of one - half dozen of the other."
On Sept, 16, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a package of bills designed to limit the amount of ground water farmers will be able to pump in the Central Valley.
What happens in our country's abortion clinics is a national nightmare.
Last month I wrote a letter to the editor calling attention to Sheriff Jim McDonnell's embracing a civilian review board voted in by the Board of Supervisors.
I started my college career at College of the Canyons way back in the early 1980s, and, at that time, tuition was free.
In response to the Daryl Cagle commentary "France cartoonists and murder" published in Friday's Signal, I am grieving for my freedom of expression.
I want to acknowledge The Signal for publishing the politically incorrect cartoon created by Charlie Fitzsimmons on Thursday.
I see that Gov. Jerry Brown and friends have celebrated the start of the bullet train, but I suggest we stop it right in its unlaid tracks.
After reading through the failure of numerous branches of government to clean out a ditch full of silt, I ask whether any person in this area can agree that government has grown too big to serve its citizens. They have failed us all.
On January 19 our nation celebrates the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. I shall celebrate that holiday - my favorite holiday - with my ex-wife by going to worship services with Dr. King being the central idea.
Last July, I attended a meeting at City Hall -- 3:00 on a 100-plus day. When I came out, my car was wet from the sprinklers. It was the height of summer, the height of a historic drought and the city was urging everyone to conserve water.
What are the council members missing? Common sense perhaps? Medians do not HAVE to be planted.
I just returned from seeing a very good movie at our local theatre and want to share something really amazing with your readers:
"In God we trust." Well, not in our schools. It seems lawlessness and chaos are much better substitutes don't you think? Lets worship demons instead of angels, a much better idea.
Thank you for featuring Nancy's Ranch on the business page of the Signal on Wednesday, December 10 under the headline "Last year to cut your own trees."
The City Council's Gang of Four - McLean, Kellar, Weste and Acosta - left many citizens slack-jawed at the Dec. 9 meeting.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors recently voted three to two to establish a civilian commission to oversee the county's Sheriff's Department.
