The State of Islam has been declared by ISIS or ISIL. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the leader of ISIS.
I want to give big kudos to the Santa Clarita City Council past and present, the city manager and everyone involved in making the city bike/walking/running trails the fantastic network they are today.
Once again, Councilman Bob Kellar slams his constituents by saying that many who signed the petitions to overturn the council's decision to permit digital billboard on our freeways were not fully aware of the full details of the proposal ("Billboard matter will be put to a vote," www.signalscv.com).
It's nice to see a positive article on the front page of The Signal about Shane Vereen ("Vereen brings it back," June 22).
Our city and local school districts should sue Shenkman & Hughes to force the Malibu-based law firm to stop its suits alleging bias in our election process unless they can prove discrimination against minorities.
I just wanted to point out the need to overturn the Citizens United decision of the United States Supreme Court in 2010.
On the rare occasion I see a sheriff's car in the area and can access the deputy, I thank them for their service and for driving my street, West Del Monte Drive.
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.
Congratulations to the new William S. Hart Union High School District superintendent, Vicki Engbrecht. "Inspired" is the first word that came to my mind when I heard that Vicki was to be our new superintendent.
Gary Horton's commentary "We're marching off to war again" (Sept. 24 in The Signal) was unbelievable.

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.
