I live in the American Beauty Classic housing tract in Canyon Country. Recently I received a letter informing my family and me that our board members - seven homeowners - decided to kill off our squirrel population by poisoning them due to burrowing problems.
No SAG strike! The petition has started to go around. I think it would be great for word to get out for all the below-the-line people who work in the business who are hurting and can not make it through another strike. Please report our side of it, too. It would mean a lot more homes being lost if this happens. More unemployment, thousands of people out of work. Help us please. Thank you.
Look to history. In 1929, the Great Depression, the 1989 recession, and now in 2008, the country was under the command of the Republican Party, Herbert Hoover, Bush Sr., and Bush Jr.
This was a letter sent to the Santa City Council. I am saddened by the way the Santa Clarita City Council conducted the emergency meeting regarding the diverter at Benz Road. I no longer have any faith in your judgment or decisions. Your action appears to be based on pressure from the city manager, staff and inconvenienced neighbors. After five years of trying to get the council to listen to them, you gave the people ...
It looks like the 19th District state Senate race will be one to watch closely. It appears two very different viewpoints are represented in this race. From my perspective, this election is about sending a message to Sacramento.
Thank you, Patricia Lester. It is about time a "real woman" stood up for Sarah Palin. I admire everything you said, as well as the fact that you spoke your mind. I have been a registered Democrat since 1956 and voted party since then. However, in 2008 I will vote for McCain/Palin, as there in no doubt in my mind they are the best offered to this country's voters this election.
"Psst! Hey, kid!" "Wha- What? Who are you?" "Heh-heh. Why are you sad?" "Because everybody in Santa Clarita wants a new hospital, but we can't afford it." "I can help you." "You can? How?" "Heh-heh-heh. Come with me and I'll show you something." "But I've been told not to go with a stranger." "I'm not a 'stranger.' I just don't live here or care about the same things you do, like whether you'll have terrible ...
I wanted to write to The Signal to let you know of the sincere kindness of one of your local dentists.
I was there at the start of the Great Depression. It was November 2008. It happened in a Mervyns in Santa Clarita.
Our City Council approved the G&L Realty medical office building project with Laurie Ender making the motion and Frank Ferry seconding.
I would like to congratulate the Saugus High School girls cross country team on their magnificent state title win for a third year in a row.
The various letters to the editor accusing Tim Myers, who writes the column "Myers' Musings," of a liberal bent provide a tremendous source of glee for myself and my four siblings.
Regarding the imminent banking collapse disaster: It seems to me that Congress needs to me more proactive, rather than reactive, on a solution to the problem of the banking disaster.
The government has put the taxpayers on the hook for a trillion dollars. We are paying for the big shot Wall Street corporate managers who have misappropriated, misused, poorly managed and probably stolen from their stockholders. When the CEO of a failing corporation takes a $50 million bonus, something is wrong. One of the big hangups Congress has now is how much the CEOs of these "bailout" corporations are supposed to be paid. I run ...
I just wanted to say a sincere "thank you" to all the California Representatives who voted against the $700 billion Bush golden parachute of American taxpayer money to the super rich CEO class on Wall Street.
I was upset hearing that Rick Perry traveled to California on a "job-poaching mission."
In a Feb. 22 Letter to the Editor in The Signal, Brian Baker claims that President Obama is a "socialist."
The recent movie "Lincoln" was highly acclaimed in this year's Oscar-considerations.
A key difference between Left and Right is that when the Right transgresses the freedom of others, it violates its own tenets.
Regarding Alice Khosravy's column "California is at bottom for business," (Feb. 22), Khosravy's excellent commentary was so clear and so factual citing a huge - if not t-h-e huge - problem that is at the core of California being on life support as a state, a once-thriving, enviable state.
The Boy Scouts of America need to allow gays into their organization because that is the moral imperative, if you will, toward "a more perfect union."
Leftists of late have become very defensive about being called socialist in their ideology, as typified by Kevin Buck's column (Feb. 19, "Straw men live in glass houses").
CNN news anchor Deb Feyerick recently asked "The Science Guy" Bill Nye if global warming caused the latest asteroid.
"Marriage" is shorthand for a specific legal arrangement between a man and a woman, just as "corporation" or "limited partnership" is a specific legal arrangement between shareholders, business partners, etc.
I was annoyed and saddened by a comment demeaning the Signal: "The Signal is biased, ignorant and often inept at reporting news."
