Perhaps a bit late, but I would like to suggest that Congress allow taxpayers to deduct up to $1,000 of credit card interest on their tax returns. Buck (McKeon), can you make that happen?
Congratulations to the city on its excellent traffic study for the future of Santa Clarita 20 and 30 years down the road.
Let the smears begin. It certainly didn't take long for the McCain campaign to attempt to sling mud at Obama. Having Sarah Palin make a comment about his palling around with terrorists is just another desperate attempt to take the public's eyes off of McCain's erratic behavior during this time of economic crisis. We have been through this before. Obama was not close to Bill Ayers and has denounced his radical views and activities.
Well, the local Republicans seem to be up to their same old dirty tricks.
With both our state and national economy in crisis, it's always interesting to hear local candidates talk about their economic plans and visions. In the important race for the California 19th Senate seat, Democratic candidate Hannah-Beth Jackson has been totally unwilling to address this issue.
It has finally happened. Stevenson Ranch, in taking a cue from the fictional television show "Weeds," has now officially turned into Majestic, the religiously biased community bent on taking over what was the beautiful town of Agrestic.
The bailouts are tantamount to government takeovers of major U. S. industries. Obama and some senators are already planning corporate restructuring and deciding which executives should be fired and how much the remaining ones should be paid.
I am responding to the letter to the editor on Dec.8 from Cori Leffler regarding the American Beauty Classics Homeowners Board of Directors' decision on the squirrel poisoning.
I understand there is a new business opening up in Newhall. Can you ask Mr. Boston if there will be any openings?
How pathetic is it that a paper like The Signal will do anything to get headlines, and some people are so starved for attention that they will malign a person, an organization or even a whole system?
Is it just me, or is there a one-sided tilt on the way this pit bull issue is perceived at Valencia High School?
I'm a resident of the Cordova mobile home park and attended the hearing at City Hall on the evening of Dec. 3, the first-ever hearing appealing a rent increase.
Hope and change are the buzz words of 2008. Obama's presidency will ultimately be judged on its effectiveness at producing positive results. In the same way the City Council and G&L Realty's hospital expansion plan will be judged.
The current proposal to expand Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital does not make sense. The City Council should do all in its power to modify it until it does.
Sarah Palin - reason enough!
On April 8, citizens of Santa Clarita will have the opportunity to elect Gloria Mercado Fortine to our city council. I have known Gloria and members of her family for over 40 years. In my opinion, she is the exact type of person our city needs at this time!
Unlike many cities in California, Santa Clarita is in great shape with a balanced budget and a 17% reserve. We maintain a reserve to be used in emergencies such as earthquake or fire. I believe in an open, transparent government, I believe in integrity and respect for our citizens. I practice those beliefs every day.
People (of SCV and others), get over it. "Noah" is a film. A Hollywood film.
In the "Our View" editorial on Sunday, March 30, The Signal editorial board questioned the city's reason for rushing for a final vote on the electronic billboard issue.
It seems to me that if any city would need to have red-light cameras set up, it would be Los Angeles.
Iran is a theocracy, which means it is led by its religious leaders. The Iranian people are a religious people.
So sad to see another state legislator, Leland Yee, accused of criminal political corruption.
To clear up any confusion, let me began by saying that I personally paid for this letter of endorsement to be published. It is a somewhat unusual policy to have to pay for an opinion letter, so I want the readers to know that it was I who paid for the opinion, and not the other way around.
When a conservative sees a product or service he likes overseas, he often thinks, "Someone needs to start a business and bring that to my area. Hey, maybe I could start it myself!"
I fail to see what all the billboard hullabaloo is about. It's obvious these vast slabs of advertising are a visual blight.
In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."
Last week the House of Representatives passed the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 4138), a simple measure by Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that would enable members of Congress to sue the Executive Branch in federal court when it disregards or flagrantly violates the U.S. Constitution.
Now that the saga of Flight 370 is coming to a close, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.
Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.
The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.
