Treat refugees with compassion

The relatively small country of Italy (compared to the USA) has managed to take in more than 70,000 illegal immigrants (refugees) fleeing poverty, war and oppression in Northern Africa.

Take it to heart and conserve water

Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.

Legalize marijuana — but with restrictions

There is no doubt that the legalization of marijuana is gaining favor throughout the country, and I have to say that I am for it - but with some very strong reservations.

Let’s derail the train and desalinate ocean water

I have been agonizing over our water shortage issues for some time now, and am worried at the impact of having neighbor snitching against water using neighbors, and the hard feelings it may cause.

Terrorism poses threat to proposed high-speed rail

I am a new subscriber to The Signal. I missed your satirical editorial piece on July 13, which Michelle Boehm responded to in the July 20 issue of The Signal.

Base Hart districts on the high schools

In my humble opinion, the most straightforward, simplest answer to the William S. Hart Union High School District going to board member representation by areas/districts would be to add two board positions.

Send the children back home

There have been a great many suggestions about how this country should handle the crisis posed by the thousands of children invading our country.

Snake alert

Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.

Let’s use our solar energy for our water

It seems incomprehensible that with the great shortage of water for this state, trillions of gallons of water lie off the cost and remains unused by those affected most.

Let's be civil

I agree with Gary Horton (Opinion, July 9). It seems though that our country is less civil. If I speak of our President, I will state "our President" or "Mr. Barack Obama."

We deserve better

John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!

City needs to say ‘yes’ to sick pay for part-time employees

The Signal reported on July 10 ("Bill would mandate sick pay for part-time employees") that the City Council voted to oppose Assembly Bill 1522 as the "...estimated financial impact to the city as a result of the bill could be as high as $180,000 per year."

Mind the speed limits and rest in peace

Since this is the time when a great many Santa Clarita families will be hitting the road on vacation, I thought I should share my recent experience with readers.

Time to withdraw the troops

I believe that we need to withdraw troops in Iraq now. It is a mistake for any troops to be there, and they are there in great peril.

Give up the boondoggles and get us more water

Over the last few weeks there have been several articles, columns and letters to the editor in The Signal regarding the actions by the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District and the Regional Water Quality Control Board to address the purported "problem" caused by "excess chloride" in the Santa Clara River downstream from Santa Clarita.

An open letter to Gov. Brown regarding plastic bags

Single use plastic bags. What, exactly, are they?

Open letter to Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Striplin

It has become increasingly apparent that many citizens are confused about association between the city of Santa Clarita and the Yes S Committee.

October 28, 2014 | Steve Petzold Principal officer and treasurer No on Measure S Committee #1370783 | Letters to the Editor


When Ya Gotta Go ...

I feel I am addressing an issue that involves many; however, they are too embarrassed to comment.

October 28, 2014 | By Dick Ramirez Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Digital billboards and light pollution

Anyone who is torn between voting yes or no for Measure S should drive out to Azusa and Irwindale off the 210 Freeway.

October 28, 2014 | Deanna Hanashiro Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


No guaranteed money, no on S

I'm voting against Measure S.

October 28, 2014 | Val Thomas Newhall | Letters to the Editor


Yes on S to enhance public safety

First-responders are very close to my heart. I believe that in this upcoming election we should do more to make their jobs more efficient and safe.

October 28, 2014 | Yoti Telio Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Vote ‘No’ on Measure S

Folks, be aware that Measure S is a backroom deal between the city politicians and the billboard consultants, not the resident voters in Santa Clarita. The proposed digital freeway signs are very large, two-sided, bright and more appropriate for Las Veg as.

October 27, 2014 | Ron Leibsker Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


The Signal’s bizarre argument for Measure S

I find The Signal's editorial in support of Measure S (Oct. 19, "Vote 'yes' on Measure S") to be both bizarre and somewhat unintelligible.

October 27, 2014 | Rick Eaton Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


‘Yes’ on S — remove the billboards

I have lived in the Santa Clarita Valley for over 35 years and I have always considered the signs along the Soledad Canyon Road and Railroad Avenue corridors an eyesore and a blight on the community.

October 26, 2014 | John L. Dortch Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Vote ‘no’ on S and preserve SCV beauty

Please vote no on S so that our lovely rural corridors on the 5 and 14 freeways don't turn into Long Beach and L.A.-like corridors of massive lit commercials.

October 26, 2014 | Renée Page Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


‘Yes’ on Measure for a sure deal

I've heard and read the arguments of the yes and no sides on Measure S.

October 26, 2014 | Frank Arenson Valencia | Letters to the Editor


We’ll be sorry if Measure S passes

I'm a recent transplant into the Santa Clarita Valley from northeast Pennsylvania.

October 26, 2014 | Gordon Katz Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


‘Yes’ on S for prosperous future

I strongly encourage all Santa Clarita residents to vote yes on Measure S.

October 26, 2014 | Michael F. Ripling Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Signal Measure S editorial failed to convince

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."
