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.
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.
I support Measure SA and would like to see Sierra Vista Junior High School updated.
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?
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.
I hope the flaming liberals are still happy with the new president-elect. Not too many in this valley, though - flaming liberals, that is.
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?
This letter is in response to The Signal's story on Oct. 2, "Vice principal expels pit bulls."
Does school start too early? I go Valencia High School, and our school starts at 8 a.m.
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.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
Aristotle, the ancient philosopher, is right on the money when he considers the nature of racism. A person's skin color is nothing but an accidental occurrence.
In her letter Sunday in The Signal ("Pay inequality is not a myth of the liberal left") attempting to rebut Steve Lunetta's earlier column about pay inequality for women, Robin Clough ends by writing:
Yes, I believe in angels, since I met one accidentally on Sierra Highway recently when my car hit a rock in the road.
Leveling the playing field has been a struggle our country has mightily faced throughout history, but denying the existence of inequality creates an even larger hurdle.
One certainly wonders what the great minds behind the idea of electronic signs along the freeways running through Santa Clarita are thinking.
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?"
I have always said, as my dad would say, "If you don't vote, then keep your mouth shut."
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.
On a recent bus trip to a remote area of Mexico, we were asked to buy basic school supplies for a remote village school.
On the heels of the "Lie of the Year" about keeping your own health care and the bogus numbers of Affordable Care
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."
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.
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.
Every week, it seems, a motorcyclist has been gravely injured, with death galore in many of the accidents.
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.
