Here we go again - "1,093 vehicles screened Friday night" (The Signal, Sept. 1).
It was a sad day when the Greenhouse Cafe closed. It was a great place for our group Newcomers and Friends to enjoy lunch and play games. All of the employees were cordial and we became friends.
Recently I watched as our president stood at the podium on the patio of the White House and announced his decision to seek congressional approval before unleashing military action against Syria.
If you question New York City's Stop and Frisk policies, you might consider the constitutionality of Santa Clarita's DUI checkpoints. What justification is there for stopping over a thousand cars when there is absolutely no reasonable cause? Just because we have a federal grant, Do we have to spend taxpayer money to cite a single DUI? Some may argue that it takes just one drunk to run over a child, but I'd ask what percentage ...
Our President Barack Obama is asking the Congress' vote. It's legitimate. If we have the proof that Syria killed children and adults with chemical weapons don't we have to intervene? I understand this time France would be our ally if we decide to save lives.
The following confession of a previously skinny kid is offered for the benefit of all your male readers who are approaching your senior years.
Let's start off this letter to the editor by not calling it a complaint but a way to solve a problem.
Well, he did it! California Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed a pro-transgender law - prepared, promoted and passed in the Californian Legislature solely by Democrats - that tramples parents' rights, denies sexual boundaries and invades personal privacy.
The plethora of gun control bills being proposed in the California Assembly and Senate would likely trouble even most liberal Democrats.
This month brought a close to the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Ramadan is marked by 30 days of fasting for Muslims from dawn to dusk and culminates with a day of celebration and festivity known as Eid-ul-Fitr. However, the Quran states that fasting is not a new phenomenon in the religion of Islam, but has had prescription in earlier religions too. The Quran states that the true essence of fasting is to derive benefits, ...
Regarding Dick Cesaroni's letter to the editor "Major League Baseball and its discipline," published Aug. 13: Pete Rose made much more than a few bets while managing the Reds. He bet on 52 games over the course of the 1985, '86 and '87 seasons - at a minimum of $10,000 per game on the Reds.
I realize the person writing the news story does not usually write the headlines for their story. However, on Aug. 10, Luke Money wrote an article about kids posting a picture of the cover of their Star Test booklets, but the headline read "Students post test answers" (A1).
For some time I have been thinking about writing to the opinion page in The Signal. I have many things I want to say but must consider economy of words.
My favorite American is the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I think that he was equally as wise as all of the other great Americans, but he was much braver than they.
Re: The Signal's Aug. 7 story "Water official: SCV difficult." What? One of the biggest items facing Santa Clarita Valley residents and businesses is the chloride issue, and there was a meeting with members of the Los Angeles Regional Quality Control Board and only a handful of people knew about it? It was so under wraps even The Signal wasn't told, so it had to report after the fact. Water Quality Control Board member Fran ...
By analogy with the gay marriage issue, who cares if someone who's never been to Paris wants to privately call themselves a "Parisian"?
Nelson Mandela, 95, gave up a third of his lifespan so that South Africans could live in racial harmony.
I read that Supervisor Antonovich is again raising concerns about welfare fraud in L.A. County. This is typical of Republicans to go after the poor and by implication "them" - brown- and black-skinned people.
The premise of this democracy is based on electing those representatives who will make decisions in the interests of all of the people, not just the rich, corporations, or special interests.
Mayor Kellar seems to believe that anyone who originally opposed the roundabout should have no voice on what sort of art display will be chosen or whether to "do nothing."
Congress will soon have to, again, discuss and debate the federal budget and debt ceiling - national crises which they "kicked down the road" instead of solving in September.
At-large voting has all of us voting on all Santa Clarita City Council candidates.
Instead of lambasting the ACA, why not put that energy and time into trying
The ardent zeal of the pitiful mind set constantly at fever pitch to maintain the imbecilic quest to paint Americans as racists pushes the boundary of sanity versus psychosis.
I have been a cat lover for many years. Being retired and disabled, the one thing that keeps me busy during the day are my two cats.
Regarding the Gary Morrison letter "Don't like Obamacare? Show us something better" (Nov. 20), your letter and the facts about Obamacare are scattered, flawed and subjective, I'm sorry to say.
The journals written by William Bradford about the Pilgrims are amazing. They show that the Pilgrims were faced with scarce food supplies and much disharmony. The Pilgrims decided to give up on the communal arrangement for their settlement and change to a free market arrangement.
You've got to hand it to our local Dem-socialist loyalists: when it comes to singing their one-note song from the same hymnal, Charlie Vignola and Jonathan Kraut have the tune down pat.
I opened my Signal last Sunday and there was that beautiful bug that resides on Bouquet Canyon Road!
I ride around town and on the freeway and wonder why I just paid $124 to register my car when I see all those driving their cars with expired license tags two to six months old.
