I find interesting the biblical chapters 13 and 14 of Judges, wherein the beginning of the story of Samson comes into play.
With the second snow survey of the Sierra snowpack at 25 percent of the historical average, the likelihood of a fourth year of drought for California, and talk about possible water rationing, I think it's time we look at attaining our current goal of a 20 percent reduction by all residents of the Santa Clarita Valley, both private and public.
Gary Horton's Feb. 4 Signal column ("America clings and slips away") about the deterioration of our country was so "right on" it saddened me. It paralleled the documentary "Inequality for All."
On Jan. 11, The Signal published an opinion column by Cher Gilmore ("The best fix for farmers' water problems") in which she advocated raising a bunch of new taxes - under the guise of various "fees," of course - to allegedly address the state's water shortfall problem that is supposedly due to "climate change."
I want to thank former Assemblyman Cameron Smyth for his column, "Making our streets safer," published Feb. 5 in The Signal.
Each day, 90 million tons of carbon dioxide is poured into our atmosphere by burning fossil fuels for energy.
Just having seen the news story about President Obama's denial of Jordan's request for military and humanitarian aid and the administration's refusal of basic military aid (e.g., ammunition, helmets, night vision goggles, body armor) to our brave
A campaign called "50 Dollars Not 50 Shades" is asking people to "say no to abuse" and boycott the erotic novel-turned-film, "Fifty Shades of Grey."
A former state assemblyman recently wrote that he voted against Assembly Bill 109 when it was presented to the Legislature in 2011. Unfortunately, the assemblyman seems to misunderstand what AB 109 did.
The Signal's front-page photo on Saturday, Jan. 31, showing the line of Santa Clarita volunteers eager to count the homeless population is heartening.
I just read a news story that reports a French court has ruled against three people for their "homophobic" tweets.
When I woke up recently to grab my daily Signal off the driveway, my eyes immediately fell upon the headline "Runner will still have to face a race."
The Signal recently reported that there will be a special election to see who will replace Steve Knight in the state Senate - and that, while there is only one person running, we must have an election with one name on the ballot.
It is time someone stand up and show support for law enforcement.
I asked a churchgoing friend of mine how far he went in college, and he told me that he only went to college until his basketball scholarship ran out; he left college before attaining what would have been a four-year degree in biology.
n AP article entitled "Rolling out the welcome mats," which glorified the practice of universities, especially the University of California system, granting in-state tuition to illegal residents of California.
When the term California "Committee on Public Safety" is mentioned, reasonable people would take the words literally versus thinking political partisanship.
We have a responsibility to ourselves and our children to be responsible citizens. I'm not talking about obeying laws and caring about the welfare of our neighbors as I hope we all do. I'm talking about a higher level of responsibility.
This is in response to Bob Comer's letter on the Summit. I have lived in the Summit for 30 years and have been very upset by our entrance being trashed and made into a COC parking lot. I have spoken with our city council members many times and were told they would change it into a no parking zone from Monday to Friday. The city passed making the street into a no parking zone, but at our last HOA Board meeting three of our Summit Board members decided they liked the idea of parking and trash and voted against ...
The city will have trouble enforcing its new "pushy panhandlers" ordinance.
I have heard talk lately of saving clean waste water to use outdoors on plants, etc. That's the water that goes down the drain while you are waiting for the shower or faucet to get warm.
I've lived in Valencia 25 years. I assume the city permitted parking on Summit Place for College of the Canyons students.
A progressive thinks that un-peacefully forcing his neighbor to do good (as defined by the progressive) constitutes a moral act.
I am writing in response to Gary Horton's April 29 column in The Signal, "Save the trees, not just the water."
This past weekend, Robert Reyes held his annual Sierra Pelona Wine Festival. For those of us who stuck it out through the unexpected rain storm, it was an unforgettable experience.
Regarding Gary Horton's "Save the trees, not just the water" published in Wednesday's Signal, Horton is correct. We need to save the trees.
Gary Horton is right ("Save the trees, not just the water," Signal April 29 Opinion page) - aesthetics and finances do matter in our battle to conserve water during this region-wide drought.
Twice within a few days The Signal has reported on The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee taking shots at our U.S. House Rep. Steve Knight.
We are a nation of laws first and foremost. This simple fact is a cornerstone of society allowing the protection of our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
I want to add to the letters published by The Signal on April 26 ("Just the ticket to save your lawns" and "Start desalination now.")
