Gas tax not the answer

Some of our presidential hopefuls have been promising a cut of the federal gas tax for the summer driving season. Others have said if that happens, the roads, potholes and rusty bridges would not be repaired. Plus the price would go up.

How safe are the streets of Valencia?

I read with concerned interest the article by Signal staff writer Stephen K. Peeples entitled "Timing is

Stop illegals now

To The Editor:

Here were are, with a torrent of illegals invading the United States border at a rate of at least 12,000-plus per day. The Bush administration has been dragging its feet on the way about this issue (no big surprise).

This one's for you, Dad

To The Editor:

A month ago I lost my dad, Edward Garfalo. He was a frequent contributor to these opinion pages. He was a man of little words, so his letters were short and to the point: "One-liners," as he liked to call them.

Strickland was right

To The Editor:

Paul Strickland's commentary ("1,000 pound gorilla is immigration," April 11, 2008) is dead-on correct.

A travesty against a vet

To The Editor:

Thank you for the article on Carl Diekman. It's truly a shame that the Department of Veterans Affairs has so little respect for this man and is coming after him over $84.00 a month. The fact that they will not even take the time to explain the charges and offer to work with him is a travesty. The VA has had so much negative publicity over the years, and here they have a chance to right a wrong to a man who has served our country. Let's hope they do the right thing.

Find new sources of school funds

More study needed on drug testing

To The Editor:

On March 27, The Signal reported that Hart School District officials, after facing considerable opposition from parents and faculty, are still in limbo concerning the implementation of random student drug testing (a practice that is becoming more common in America) in an attempt to deter drug use.

Vote Obama, forget McCain

In what alternative universe does Stephen Winkler reside ("Think before you vote," Letters, April 24)? Hillary Clinton is the Democratic party candidate and John McCain is a liberal Republican?

Legalize marijuana — but with restrictions

There is no doubt that the legalization of marijuana is gaining favor throughout the country, and I have to say that I am for it - but with some very strong reservations.

Let’s derail the train and desalinate ocean water

I have been agonizing over our water shortage issues for some time now, and am worried at the impact of having neighbor snitching against water using neighbors, and the hard feelings it may cause.

I am a new subscriber to The Signal. I missed your satirical editorial piece on July 13, which Michelle Boehm responded to in the July 20 issue of The Signal.

Send the children back home

There have been a great many suggestions about how this country should handle the crisis posed by the thousands of children invading our country.

Base Hart districts on the high schools

In my humble opinion, the most straightforward, simplest answer to the William S. Hart Union High School District going to board member representation by areas/districts would be to add two board positions.

Let’s use our solar energy for our water

It seems incomprehensible that with the great shortage of water for this state, trillions of gallons of water lie off the cost and remains unused by those affected most.

Snake alert

Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.

We deserve better

John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!

Let's be civil

I agree with Gary Horton (Opinion, July 9). It seems though that our country is less civil. If I speak of our President, I will state "our President" or "Mr. Barack Obama."

City needs to say ‘yes’ to sick pay for part-time employees

The Signal reported on July 10 ("Bill would mandate sick pay for part-time employees") that the City Council voted to oppose Assembly Bill 1522 as the "...estimated financial impact to the city as a result of the bill could be as high as $180,000 per year."

Time to withdraw the troops

I believe that we need to withdraw troops in Iraq now. It is a mistake for any troops to be there, and they are there in great peril.
