Roll back tuition throughout Calif. colleges

I started my college career at College of the Canyons way back in the early 1980s, and, at that time, tuition was free.

Positive signs from new sheriff

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.

Support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

What happens in our country's abortion clinics is a national nightmare.

Standing up for freedom

I want to acknowledge The Signal for publishing the politically incorrect cartoon created by Charlie Fitzsimmons on Thursday.

Vive la liberte and vive Charlie

In response to the Daryl Cagle commentary "France cartoonists and murder" published in Friday's Signal, I am grieving for my freedom of expression.

Drink water, don’t ride trains

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.

The importance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

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.

Bone Dry Bouquet Canyon

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.

Medians don’t need to be planted

What are the council members missing? Common sense perhaps? Medians do not HAVE to be planted.

Setting an example

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.

Nancy's is not going out of business

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."

Talking about God

"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.

Young moviegoers

I just returned from seeing a very good movie at our local theatre and want to share something really amazing with your readers:

Support Assembly Bill 866 to help small businesses

I am pleased to support Assembly Bill 866, introduced by Eduardo Garcia, because it provides the opportunity for agencies to consider the impacts of regulations on small business, paving the way for less costly and less burdensome regulations for small business.

High speed rail authority’s claims are false

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."

April 16, 2015 | Assemblyman Scott Wilk Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


Fort Hood attack was terrorism

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."

Study shows Obamacare saves lives

Last December, the administration announced that Obamacare programs to improve hospital safety have resulted in 50,000 fewer preventable deaths since 2010.

Desalination instead of high-speed rail

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.

Beware climate-change-deniers for hire

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.

April 10, 2015 | Pete Kuntz Lancaster, PA | Letters to the Editor


Tragic results of attempting to reverse climate change

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.

What happened to no gay marriage impact on straight society?

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.

Unsolicited phone calls not wanted

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).

Not vaccinating carriers higher risks

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.

Brine injection: It’s not about oil production

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.

Gov. Moonbeam needs math lesson

Let me get this straight. Gov. Jerry Brown has mandated a 25 percent reduction in urban water usage.

Obama and Chamberlain

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

Seeing through Pence’s pretense on Indiana law

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.
