McKeon flips off the middle class

Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon voted for the $700 billion bailout for Wall Street. But he voted against the $14 billion bailout for the auto industry.

Wrong diagnosis for the hospital's needs

I was sorry to read that a doctor would label many of us as "quacks" for our deep concerns over the proposed massive expansion of office buildings and parking structures at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.

Measure SA is worth your five dollars

I support Measure SA and would like to see Sierra Vista Junior High School updated.

Criticizing Obama doesn't make me racist

Why is it that any criticism of Sen. Obama and his associations with terrorists and racists, and his lack of experience always elicits cries of racism from the Democrat camp, including the mainstream media?

Amazed at response to menorah article

I am writing in response the Dec. 11 article "Kosher." In response to the incredible events that have occurred regarding the Stevenson Ranch Homeowners Association menorah, I am personally amazed at the HOA's handling of this issue.

Obama and the Governor of Illinois

I hope the flaming liberals are still happy with the new president-elect. Not too many in this valley, though - flaming liberals, that is.

I doth protest the hospital plans

Dr. Barstis of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, could you please tell me where you live so that I can locate a small community hospital in your neighborhood, buy it, pay off the local planning officials to throw out the existing master plan for your neighborhood, and proceed to build another UCLA mega-medical center on your block?

In support of pit bulls at Valencia High

This letter is in response to The Signal's story on Oct. 2, "Vice principal expels pit bulls."

School starts too early in Valencia

Does school start too early? I go Valencia High School, and our school starts at 8 a.m.

Remembering the Great Depression

Our United States is beginning another financial crisis. I remember the financial crisis of 1929. I was born in 1916, which made me a teenager when Wall Street crashed. We heard about men jumping to their deaths from skyscrapers because they couldn't face the results of their financial ruin. No one took such a violent out in our little town of Crawford, Nebraska, but men were found standing on the street or leaning against buildings with defeated, sad faces.

Professional arrogance is not a good quality

I write this letter in response to Dr. Barstis' reference in his letter to The Signal (Oct. 13) to those of us who are requesting a smart and honest hospital expansion plan - versus the current proposed plan which is laden with questionable motives, continued dishonest representation, and little in the way of actual hospital expansion - as "quacks."

Bear-ing up to the market

Is the current bear market different from past bear markets? Take a close look at what investment professionals have discovered about this bear market, how it compares with previous ones and what lessons we can learn.

Should we trust the Hart District?

The Signal's Oct. 12 editorial gave an overview of the lack of financial/spending controls of the William S. Hart Union High School District but concluded local taxpayers should vote for another $300 million bond, Measure SA, anyway. Previous bond construction cost overruns are at least $43 million, with a recently stated figure of $80 million. That is all taxpayer money (Measure V). Hart's superintendent asserts measures exist to preclude such from reccurring, but we have no guarantees.

Tolerance

The Republicans may be "getting behind our president" now, but I recall John McCain having to quiet the "booing" Republican crowd at his concession speech several times.

Premiere for 'The Women' a ripoff

My wife and I attended a premiere held in Canyon Country for the opening of "The Women." Now, the movie was cute, and we enjoyed it. The theater staff was great, and they worked hard on their end.

Connecting with the liberal mind

With regards to Linda McCaskill and Curt Scott's criticism of Rob Kerchner's claim to know what liberals are thinking, I guess I have to agree with them, because I often wonder "What in the world are they thinking?"

Apathy is alive and well in the SCV

I have always said, as my dad would say, "If you don't vote, then keep your mouth shut."

What about the car drivers in motorcycle accidents?

Robert Burton wants to ban motorcycles from public streets because of the many accidents and even fatalities involving motorcycles, and because he saw a rider riding on the back wheel only, and because motorcycle riders cost our state many dollars in hospital bills.

Where’s the money going?

On a recent bus trip to a remote area of Mexico, we were asked to buy basic school supplies for a remote village school.

The smart votes on SB52 were from the Republicans

A recent letter-to-the editor ("We need more transparency in our elections," April 1 in The Signal) authored by a Democrat, chided Republicans in general and Assemblyman Scott Wilk specifically for the failure to pass "Disclose Act, SB52," purportedly a bill intended to put sunlight on "dark money."

Water cutbacks should be required of all

I seem to have been living in a bubble that was not transparent. As I have been hearing for the past few years, and more so recently, we, the state of California, have been and are now in a very serious drought.

Faulty mind-reading

Kudos to Linda McCaskill's riposte ("Who gives the most to charity?" April 7 in The Signal) to Rob Kerchner's claim to know what "liberals" are thinking (Defining difference," March 27 in The Signal.

Motorcycles are unsafe; get them off the road

Every week, it seems, a motorcyclist has been gravely injured, with death galore in many of the accidents.

Open Letter to Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran

America is a peace loving country. America along with the United Nations supports human rights in all countries on the planet. The people of America are behind our president. President Barack Obama has tried to improve relations between our countries.

Proud to be an American

Proud, grateful and privileged to have voted by mail on Friday 4/4/14.

Who gives the most to charity: conservatives or liberals?

The Letter to the Editor by Rob Kerchner (Defining difference) in the March 27 Signal is both unjustified and prejudicial. Unless Mr. Kerchner has telepathic powers, how could he possibly know what all "liberals" or most "liberals" or even one particular "liberal" may be thinking when it comes to whether they want the government, private enterprise, or little green Martians to duplicate in this country something they see overseas?

Those political signs

In regards to the political signs, I feel they are equivalent to graffiti. They are a complete eyesore and a possible safety hazard. Why are they even allowed?

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Alan Ferdman for City Council

The Santa Clarita City Council election of 2012, in hindsight, was a transitional election.

No Weste, Young Man

I have carefully considered the endorsement of Laurene Weste by the The Signal's Editorial Board published on March 16, 2014, and I feel stongly that it must be challenged.
