You recently published the letter "Insurance freebies not so free" (Dec. 5) in which the writer closed with, "I guess those 'freebies' that were promised in the new health care law are not so free after all."
Although the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center is typically closed on Saturdays, it was the place to be on Dec. 8 as the Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival performed its interpretation of a Dickens classic for Santa Clarita Valley residents.
On Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, there was not one mention from the posters (Letters to the Editor or local column contributors) or The Signal in its columns about this most important day in American history.
Thank God that the citizens of this country saw through the lies, racism and hatred that has spieled through the Internet about our president.
I for one am still waiting to find out what happened in Benghazi, but it is being masked by other lesser events.
To county supervisor: How dare you only have one public hearing regarding the new tax (oops.. fee) you are trying to foist onto we, your constituents, who are still trying to find jobs in Los Angeles County. Our jobless rate is nearing 15 percent. Predators, you are just like your super majority in the California Legislature ... we, the people, don't mean a thing. Remember, your governor, Mr. Brown, and last year's Legislature passed another ...
Editor's note: Signal staff, not city officials, are responsible for the caption. The Festival of Trees, from which the tree was generously purchased in support of Gold Star families and of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley, calls its entries neither Christmas nor holiday trees.
Today I got an e-pamphlet touting all the wonderful new benefits, such as "free" well-woman services, that my insurance now covers.
Ever since mankind has been able to put something up, Mother Nature has been knocking it down.
In recent weeks we have seen the news flooded with "Zippergate" involving Gens. David Petraeus and John Allen, who have both had questionable relationships with some kind of military groupies.
The other day I went to the Old Town Newhall Library and saw an old friend from my past. Almost 50 years ago, right after high school, I spent three years in the Army standing side by side with the son of this Cold War warrior. I proudly carried his image on my shoulder: the Nike-Ajax missile. You can see him today behind the Old Town Newhall Library and next to the American Legion Post ...
Early last week I heard Gary Horton's column has ended. As to why, it remains unclear.

The Gaza-Israeli conflict and the fiscal cliff should take precedence over the Petraeus sex scandal. The conflict and the fiscal cliff have a major bearing on our lives at the moment. Not saying that the sex scandal is not important, but it should be put on the back burner for now. All efforts should be going to the Gaza-Israeli and the fiscal cliff problems in hopes to settle those problems! The Gaza and Israeli conflict ...
Obama and his minions are mired up to their eyeballs in scandals, what with Benghazigate, the IRS targeting of conservative groups for harassment, and the Justice Departments secret grab of Associated Press phone records, not to mention the lingering Operation Fast & Furious debacle.
I urge all drivers to contact the California Transportation Commission www.catc.ca.gov (and any local representative) to voice their disapproval of Assembly Bill AB 680, which gives private entities the right to charge drivers to use the highways they are already paying to build and maintain.
Once we have removed the excess chloride from our wastewater, are we just going to give the water away to the farmers in Ventura?
Concerning Jim Holt's article on teens dying in the SCV ("Sand Canyon residents remember youth killed at oak tree 32 years ago," May 8), I can understand his concern.
I just finished reading Gary Horton's column on victimhood. If I didn't know better I'd swear he suddenly became a Republican. His comments were spot on. In this age of blame the other guy for your own lack of responsibility, it's good to see that someone else gets it. Good job, Gary.
Thanks for hosting the Summer Meltdown. This is so important to the Yes I Can program. I witnessed a special moment that I will never forget. One of the Yes I Can students was withdrawn and another student was holding her arm around her. One female teachers from the Yes I Can program went up to her and held her in her arms for a good couple of minutes (just the kindest hug) as to say it's OK. Then the girl and friend went on their way,
The Boston bombing brought to light a very clever way of carrying out covert operations in another country. Our own CIA can learn from the Tsarnaev brothers on how to conduct an operation and have that country finance it for them.
Remember when that man, Rick Perry, came to California to promote and emphasize "that HIS state of Texas doesn't bother with pesky regulations on industry.
Not two weeks after "our" 13-year-old gay teen, Nigel Hardy,committed suicide in Palmdale from being bullied as his school's male cheerleader, the president of the board of "our" Hart School District, Joe Messina, brought a known (adult) bully of gays, Brad Dacus, of the ironically named www.pacificjustice.org, as the keynote speaker at "our" city's Mayor's Prayer Breakfast at the Hyatt Regency Valencia. Even after the AV teen's death, Dacus called for parents not to attend ...
I always enjoy a good chuckle on a Sunday morning, and the letter by Richard Myers today allowed me a good one.
I recently read Brian Baker's April 24 letter "On logic, liberated thinking and gun control."
Sure hoping we will have other options besides the birds for the traffic circle sculpture coming to Old Town Main Street area.
It comes by surprise. Bombs explode and people run; some are killed, hundreds are injured. Why? What is in the mind of men to do such things?
