Less than a week after subpoenaed witness no-shows, and balking at the Alaska Legislature's Oversight Commission (eight Republicans and four Democrats) investigating her alleged abuse of power regarding her ex-brother-in-law in Troopergate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, former lipsticked-pitbull-turned-reporter-'fraidy cat and the Republican vice presidential hopeful has indicated she will cooperate with a separate probe started by her and being run by the three-member Governor Appointed Personnel Board (aka, people she can fire.) Wow. Reminds me ...
Shame on The Signal. The Signal repeatedly ignores Santa Clarita Christian School's sports. SCCS has one of the best running backs in the valley. He was picked "All Santa Clarita Football Team" as a sophomore last year. Yet he is not on the cover of the fall football preview. Saturday night, SCCS played Joshua Springs, the defending CIF champions, but the "hometown" newspaper can't be bothered to cover the game. SCCS did win in a ...
I sure am proud to be a conservative Republican. Yes, I voted for Senator John McCain and was disappointed with his loss. However, on Jan. 20, President-elect Barak Obama will be my president and I will respect that no matter what and will pray every day for him. His success equals ours.
My son Jimmy Ceballos recently returned home after serving three tours of duty in Iraq. This holiday season will be very special to our family.
Gary Horton ("Free at Last! At least for the majority," Nov. 11) lamented the passage of Proposition 8 and lambasted the Mormon and Catholic churches for supporting it. He suggests that neither church has the moral authority to participate in an election concerning marriage.
When I read the article in The Signal about the Goldstein family and their parking complaint (Nov. 15) I laughed for five minutes. Then I decided to set the record straight.

What an amazing few weeks we have just witnessed in American history. We have seen conservative Republicans bring us socialism for the 21st century.
Back in the days when women were burning their bras and demanded equal pay for equal work, I was a feminist.
Boy, howdy. As a loyal John Boston reader, I'm so glad you're back. You can say "boy, howdy" 'til the cows come home.
This is a letter sent to Congressman Buck McKeon: Dear Congressman McKeon: As constituents who have voted for you in city and congressional elections, we are appalled at your apparent intractability reflected in your Nov. 19 newsletter as it relates to fixes for our economy. We realize that generally your votes in Congress follow a strict party line, but you could have at least made a statement as it relates to bi-partisan co-operation in ...
Mary Ann and I have lived in this valley for more than 40 years and in the last 10 years have relied heavily on Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for our health services. It is not an overstatement that our hospital saved my life at least once and arguably twice.
The issue of the expansion of the Henry Mayo (Newhall Memorial) Hospital campus and its "master plan" will soon be presented for City Council approval. There are serious questions as to the impartiality of certain council members with regard to this action. I have always believed in the integrity of the individuals that are elected to represent the best interests of their constituents, but I recognize that often misinformation, misrepresentation and misguided values can also ...
Reading Steve Lunetta's Uncle Earl column ("Uncle Earl's view on the election," Nov. 20) summed up what is wrong with the Republican Party: a loss of ideals, finger-pointing, idle gossip, fear-mongering and a considerable state of denial.
We have been brainwashed by the automobile industry in telling us that we have to have bigger, faster and flashier cars.
The premise of this democracy is based on electing those representatives who will make decisions in the interests of all of the people, not just the rich, corporations, or special interests.
Mayor Kellar seems to believe that anyone who originally opposed the roundabout should have no voice on what sort of art display will be chosen or whether to "do nothing."
Congress will soon have to, again, discuss and debate the federal budget and debt ceiling - national crises which they "kicked down the road" instead of solving in September.
At-large voting has all of us voting on all Santa Clarita City Council candidates.
Instead of lambasting the ACA, why not put that energy and time into trying
The ardent zeal of the pitiful mind set constantly at fever pitch to maintain the imbecilic quest to paint Americans as racists pushes the boundary of sanity versus psychosis.
I have been a cat lover for many years. Being retired and disabled, the one thing that keeps me busy during the day are my two cats.
Regarding the Gary Morrison letter "Don't like Obamacare? Show us something better" (Nov. 20), your letter and the facts about Obamacare are scattered, flawed and subjective, I'm sorry to say.
The journals written by William Bradford about the Pilgrims are amazing. They show that the Pilgrims were faced with scarce food supplies and much disharmony. The Pilgrims decided to give up on the communal arrangement for their settlement and change to a free market arrangement.
You've got to hand it to our local Dem-socialist loyalists: when it comes to singing their one-note song from the same hymnal, Charlie Vignola and Jonathan Kraut have the tune down pat.
I opened my Signal last Sunday and there was that beautiful bug that resides on Bouquet Canyon Road!
I ride around town and on the freeway and wonder why I just paid $124 to register my car when I see all those driving their cars with expired license tags two to six months old.
The following quotation is taken from page 127 of "The Western Heritage" (1999).
By now it has been widely reported that President Obama's pledge of keeping your insurance policy turned out to be not true - millions of plans have already been canceled nationwide.
A new voter law disenfranchises voters in Texas. It takes aim at the poor and minorities living in that state.
