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.

So where are the fine films in the SCV?

Another week, another opening of fine films.

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.

Is it time for artificial turf?

I am sure the rebates on low-flow bathroom products has reduced water consumption considerably.

Tell the truth, Ms. Dupuy

On July 3, The Signal published a column by Tina Dupuy titled "Freedom for Hobby Lobby's religious rights."

Against all billboards

First of all, I am absolutely against all of the billboards in the Santa Clarita Valley - including the ones along the Metro right-of-way. I am also against the digital sign boards along the freeways.

Hooray for concerned U.S. citizens like Brian Baker

Brian Baker's column published in The Signal June 30 ("The IRS is far from earning back our trust") is spot on!

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."

Measure S a good deal for Santa Clarita

Santa Clarita is surrounded by gorgeous open spaces and is one of the most beautiful cities in California.

Billboard arguments

I found it interesting that Councilman Kellar mentioned Councilman Boydston quite a few times in his argument in favor of Measure S. It's almost as if his opinion is an attack on another councilman rather than providing reasons to convince the voting public that the "deal" is a good one.

Billboard questions

Very interesting comments from both Councilmen Bob Kellar and TimBen Boydston. And a little if not a lot of political spin from both. They sure like to throw numbers around.

S should be passed

I would like to express my opinion on this important matter, Measure S.

Best of luck on Friday

Last year, during the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division semifinal playoff game, Valencia safety Jay Jay Wilson hit Saugus receiver Timmy Kahovec hard and was ejected from the game. While Vikings fans remain steadfast that it was a clean hit and Centurion fans remain resolute that it was targeting, it is important to remember that we are all friends and neighbors. With the rematch coming up on Friday (10/17), I hope we can put last year behind us and go into this game rooting for our respective teams with no hard feelings.

On intolerance

Interesting how Charlie Vignola reveals his own intolerance when in his commentary "None Dare Call It Bigotry," [10/14] he clearly verbalizes his own bigotry toward those with religious convictions. By Webster's definition, which he quotes, bigotry is intolerance with hatred. I happen to hold to those "ancient religious" ideals he mentions that God spelled out in both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible. I do so without hatred. Furthermore, tolerance speaks more of endurance than it does affirmation. But that's not what is so inflammatory about Vignola's argument.

Vote No on S

Our fair city of Santa Clarita negotiated a deal and passed an ordinance (3-1-a), with little to no public input, to construct three (3) huge, 2-faced, electronic billboards on our beautiful 5 and 14 freeways, in exchange for forcefully taking 40 billboards away from their longtime owners on Railroad - for unjust compensation. Only the honorable TimBen Boydston voted no. In the weeks preceding the hurried vote, SCV residents vocalized our opposition to the ordinance in chambers.

Word of the day fits the White House

Sunday I got my "word-of-the-day" on the Internet. The word was demagogue.

Why The Change?

If the City Council approved certain terms regarding the billboard issue, why were they changed?

Obama remarkable accomplishments as president

Its a joke to read the rants of the right wing ancient white men on The Signal's website comments.

The problem with socialism

As is pretty common with Dem/socialists, Kevin Buck falls into the pit of conflating conservatism and Republicans in his Sept. 30 column in The Signal, "Six of one - half dozen of the other."

A water crisis solution

On Sept, 16, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a package of bills designed to limit the amount of ground water farmers will be able to pump in the Central Valley.
