I started my college career at College of the Canyons way back in the early 1980s, and, at that time, tuition was free.
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.
What happens in our country's abortion clinics is a national nightmare.
I want to acknowledge The Signal for publishing the politically incorrect cartoon created by Charlie Fitzsimmons on Thursday.
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 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.
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.
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.
What are the council members missing? Common sense perhaps? Medians do not HAVE to be planted.
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.
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."
"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.
I just returned from seeing a very good movie at our local theatre and want to share something really amazing with your readers:
Thank you for printing the article "Black lives do matter" by Terri Lovell in the Dec. 12 issue of The Signal's opinion section.
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.
In a Signal article published Tuesday, the California High-Speed Rail Authority claimed it "go(es) above and beyond by not only opening all our monthly board meetings to the public, but also our committee meetings," and that "the (rail authority) is in full compliance with all laws governing public meetings in California."
I find it sadly ironic that the Pentagon has announced it will pay for the sex-change therapy of Private Bradley/Chelsea Manning, who was convicted in July 2013 of violations of the Espionage Act and other offenses, but it will not cover the care and treatment for Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, a victim of the November 2009 Fort Hood massacre, because the latter is not considered "combat related."
Last December, the administration announced that Obamacare programs to improve hospital safety have resulted in 50,000 fewer preventable deaths since 2010.
With the governor announcing his demand for a 25 percent decrease in municipal water usage due to the drought crisis, it occurs to me that perhaps its time for all of the Sacramento politicians to really face this problem.
With respect to Gary Morrison's letter to the editor ("Let's make 'no more robocalls' a reality,: April 2 in The Signal), NoMoRobo is available to individuals at https://www.nomorobo.com/.
After reading the well-reasoned and science-based column "Climate change: myth vs. fact" by Cher Gilmore (The Signal, April 6), (I belong to a CCL chapter in Lancaster, PA), I noticed the comments were almost all hostile, angry, and insulting attacks from climate deniers.
A moral tragedy is unfolding because of the confidence of groups such as Cher Gilmore's Citizens' Climate Lobby ("Climate change: myth vs. fact," April 6 in The Signal), which portray that we know the future of climate and that we can control it merely by regulating our carbon dioxide emissions.
Assuming you haven't been marooned on a deserted island in the middle of the ocean, you've probably heard about Memories Pizza, a small family-owned pizzeria in Walkerton, Indiana.
In his letter "Let's make 'no more robocalls' a reality," April 2 in The Signal, Gary Morrison was right on - everyone hates unsolicited phone calls that interrupt their day (or night).
In a brief response to Rachel Clark's letter to the editor ("Keep government from meddling in medical issues," April 3 in The Signal), perhaps as an elementary-school teacher she is unaware of the states of Mississippi and West Virginia. Both states have retained ...both states retain stricter vaccination policies then California.
A quick read of The Signal's Opinion page article "No deep well brine injection in SCV" (March 29) may give the impression it's about oil wells. Actually, it's not.
Let me get this straight. Gov. Jerry Brown has mandated a 25 percent reduction in urban water usage.
The almost frantic attempt by the Obama administration to come to a nuclear agreement pact with the government of Iran, which remains steadfast in its commitment to the destruction of Israel, is reminiscent of British Prime Minister
Let's dispense with some of the WeaselSpeak that has attended Indiana Gov. Mike Pence's successful attempt at killing his state's tourist economy.
In Wilkerton, Indiana, a pizza restaurant is forced to shut down by harassment and threats of violence because its owners voiced an opinion in answer to a hypothetical question.
