I read in The Signal where George H. W. Bush, father of the infamous George W. Bush, "celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday by making a tandem parachute jump."
Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.
During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.
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).
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.
The latest assignment some sixth-grade students got in one of our local schools is "Atrocities committed by our troops in Vietnam."
Regarding the controversial release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, below are some of the responses of President Obama to this issue:
The best description I have heard of the recent fiasco of trading prisoners is that we have exchanged five hand grenades for a squirt gun.
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.
Daniel Wani, an American citizen living in New Hampshire, was not able to celebrate Father's Day with his wife and two tiny American children.
For many years, Lois Eisenberg has written awesome letters to the editor for The Signal. She combines great thinking and great writing in her letters to the editor.
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.
Rocket Collins, 13 seasons as boys head basket coach at Valencia High School, has been relieved of his position.
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).
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.
Jonathan Kraut's polemic on Tuesday's Opinion page needs a rebuttal.
Twice on recent Saturday nights around midnight, I had occasion to be in the area of Golden Valley High School.
This is in response to the letters to the editor from Stella Pilarski and Eugene Taylor ("Cartoon was disrespectful," "Despicable cartoon," Sept. 12 issue of The Signal).
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.
I'd like to add another thought to Betty Arenson's excellent column published Aug. 22 in The Signal entitled "California's crazy train."
Dante Acosta appears to be a genius in the practice of double speak.
The Russian Federation is not a democracy. It is a dictatorship run by Vladimir Putin.
I don't get offended often or disgusted with things you put in your paper.
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.
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.
Kudos to the CVS Pharmacy Corp. in its bold stand to stop tobacco sales.
In the next 30 years California will add 12 million new residents. We will all need to continue traveling within our state.
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?
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.
