MRF needs support

To the Editor:

I appreciate Kathy Thompson pointing out my misstatement concerning the zoning of the proposed Materials Recovery Facility site on Sierra Highway. ("MRF Zoning Contradiction," March 1, 2008.) Current zoning on 42.46 acres of the site is indeed zoned Business Park, not Industrial as I had stated.

Kudos to deputies

To the Editor:

It is not often that our law enforcement officials are recognized for their hard work and professionalism. For this reason, I felt compelled to write this letter of appreciation.

Real-estate agents need not apply

To the Editor:

A note to all real-estate professionals who are aspiring to public office: think again. The California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) investigation against Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar is a stark reminder of government's intrusions into the private affairs of those seeking elected office.

May 10, 2008 | By Bruce McFarland Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


Apology not accepted

To The Editor:,

Your apology to Mayor Bob Kellar and Sharon Dawson should have been on the front page of The Signal.

Most controversial?

To The Editor:

It was interesting to read in The Mighty Signal that TimBen Boydston was selected to receive the SCV Press Club's Most Controversial Newsmaker of the Year Award for 2007. The term "most controversial"

Unpatriotic questioner?

To The Editor:

I have never run for office, nor do I intend to do so. And now that I hear once you declare your intention to run you give up your right to question those in office, well, I'm sure happy I haven't.

City's Priorities Askew

To The Editor:

Having read a variety of Signal articles recently, I have been both amused and irritated with the irony regarding several construction projects planned in our fair city.

A Deaf Ear on Iraq

To The Editor:

As preparation for the war in Iraq, our president and his advisers asked our generals for recommendations on this matter. They advised that they needed more troops than Rumsfeld had suggested. They said winning the war was no problem. More troops were needed to win the peace and secure that nation's stability and recovery.

Flatulence is Not Funny

To The Editor:

Something smells awful at the Signal.

What About the Victim?

To The Editor:

It was really disheartening to read the article "Mother of convicted murderer speaks out" (Feb. 29, 2008).

The Ultimate Sacrifice for Freedom

To The Editor:

Regarding Howard Barr's letter of Feb. 28, mentioning my name ('Troops in Iraq for the Wrong Reasons'), which was a reaction to a previous letter I wrote that was published on Feb. 24, ('Please Vet Stories'):

Money Wasted on Name Change

To The Editor:

I totally agree with Debbie Johnson's letter ('A Waste of $20,000, Feb. 20) that it is "an absolute waste of time and taxpayers' money to change the names of existing streets in downtown Newhall."

In Defense of Electoral Reform

To The Editor:

Democrats worried that Ralph Nader's presidential race might tip the scale in a crucial state over to the Republican nominee come November should embrace the opportunity before them to stop it before it happens: Not by tossing epithets at Nader or preventing his candidacy, but by immediately engaging in a program of electoral reform in key states to prevent such a possibility.

Take it to heart and conserve water

Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.

Treat refugees with compassion

The relatively small country of Italy (compared to the USA) has managed to take in more than 70,000 illegal immigrants (refugees) fleeing poverty, war and oppression in Northern Africa.

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.

So where are the fine films in the SCV?

Another week, another opening of fine films.

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."

July 20, 2014 | Anne Marie Whalley Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


Mind the speed limits and rest in peace

Since this is the time when a great many Santa Clarita families will be hitting the road on vacation, I thought I should share my recent experience with readers.

Is it time for artificial turf?

I am sure the rebates on low-flow bathroom products has reduced water consumption considerably.
