Okay, I have had it! What ever happened to the word "to"? When did "ta" replace the word "to"?
What has happened to my favorite radio frequency all of a sudden? I loved listening to KCSN-FM 88.5 generated from Cal State Northridge and now all I get is static. Why?
I couldn't help but notice the contrast between two articles printed on the Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2008, front page.
An open letter to Dr. John Barstis (Letters, Oct 14, 2008):
The building of a Castaic high school has been a huge ongoing issue in our very small community.
My name is Janae. I'm 15 years old and I go to Valencia High School. For one of my English essays we were to write an essay about a letter to the editor. I actually really got into it.
In a recent conversation with some friends a question arose as to how much commitment the city of Santa Clarita has to the arts. I was told there have been some things the city has done, but for the most part, with little or no input from the arts community.
I am pro-Proposition 8. I believe very strongly that marriage is a time-honored and socially critical covenant between a man and a woman with the chief purpose of conceiving and raising children in a loving family environment - a covenant that has been gradually eroded and made to seem wholly irrelevant (until now) over the last 40-plus years.
I am responding to Matthew Allen's letter, "Let gays marry their loved ones" (Oct. 16).
In response to people in Valencia who have written complaining about their "Yes on 8" signs being stolen, I wanted to make sure they understood that plenty of "No on 8" lawn signs have gone missing as well.
In 1999 I had a discussion with a good friend of mine in Texas. I asked her, "Who are you going to vote for?" Her reply changed my political path for the rest of my life.
Fraudulent voter registration may not lead to fraudulent votes, but it certainly skews polls, which use registration numbers as their basis. Therefore, today's polls showing a given candidate with a lead may show phony results because of phony voter registration.
It seems odd to me that in this country where we fought to have the right to free speech and freedom of religion, and to be one nation under God, that we can't find a way to the common good for all.
Shame on the editorial board of The Signal for recommending a No vote on Proposition 2, a measure that, if passed, will improve the living conditions of millions of chickens, calves and pigs on factory farms in California.
In response to the statement that some intolerant liberal stole your McCain and Yes on 8 signs, I had my Obama sign defaced and then stolen earlier this summer.
During the Senate's brief pre-election legislative session in mid-September, Harry Reid, D-Nevada, intends to call up for a vote an amendment to the Unites States Constitution.
It never fails to amaze me how many major projects are approved with little or no awareness of the actual impact of the project.
Although I was never a fan of Robin Williams, I am sad to hear that he has died - and from his own hand.
There is not enough emphasis on the safety factor of kids going back to school.
Just saw a news report on Channel 7 about the United States Postal Service immortalizing the late Janis Joplin by putting her picture on a stamp.
Recently, The Signal has published letters from Karen Kaplan, Sue Adamik and Beverly Celentano complaining about the lack of "fine films" playing at theaters out here in the SCV.
President Obama has finally responded to the violence and persecution against Christians and other religious minorities by the barbaric militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
I'm proud of the three Jewish congregations in Santa Clarita for showing their support and solidarity for Israel, the homeland of their religion.
Regarding Karen Kaplan's letter of May 26, "Lousy films in the SCV," I've been writing letters on this subject for a couple of years.
I totally agree with Karen Kaplan's letter to the editor, published May 26 and titled "Lousy films in the SCV."
Regarding The Signal editorial "Cooperation needed during water crisis" published in the Aug. 3 issue of the paper: Where in this cooperation do the state, county and city responsibilities come into play?
Recently a mob in Pakistan burned down eight Ahmadi Muslim homes, which resulted in the deaths of three children and a 55-year old grandmother.
Regarding the Michael Reagan column "Hollywood liberals are standing down for Israel" published Aug. 4 in The Signal: My thoughts exactly!
An article in The Signal July 3, 2014, quoted the proposed ballot language for the billboard referendum on November's ballot: "Shall Ordinance No. 14-02 adopting a Development Agreement with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertisement structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?"
Recently I was privileged to hear a presentation on the water crisis in our state, and also our problems here in Santa Clarita, regarding a shortage of water and an over-abundance of salt in our discharge into the Santa Clara River.
