It seems odd to me that in this country where we fought to have the right to free speech and freedom of religion, and to be one nation under God, that we can't find a way to the common good for all.
Shame on the editorial board of The Signal for recommending a No vote on Proposition 2, a measure that, if passed, will improve the living conditions of millions of chickens, calves and pigs on factory farms in California.
In response to the statement that some intolerant liberal stole your McCain and Yes on 8 signs, I had my Obama sign defaced and then stolen earlier this summer.
I was appalled to read that The Signal opposes Prop 2.
The article announcing the naming of Howard "Buck" McKeon as honorary chairman of "Birdies for the Brave" is an illegal soft-money contribution by The Signal for McKeon on the eve of an election, particularly with the deliberate coverage blackout on his opponent in the general election.
As candidate for the 25th Congressional District seat this Tuesday, I have long stated that the hands-off economic policies of congressional representatives like Howard "Buck" McKeon are breaking our nation.
As a parent of a school-aged child I want to express my strong disapproval of your endorsements of all Republican candidates in the November election.
I know both Cameron Smyth and Carole Lutness, and they are both fine citizens of the Santa Clarita Valley deserving of our votes.
Cast an informed vote, not a "party" vote.
On Nov. 4, the voters of Santa Clarita will have a golden opportunity to change the way our state government works.
The Santa Clarita Valley Teachers Association would like the public to know it has endorsed Hannah-Beth Jackson for the Senate seat in the 19th District.
Recently, people asked for more detail on Measure S, the rebates to homeowners with automatic water softeners. I'm happy to provide some more information.
Ten reasons to vote "no" on the $300 million Measure SA bond:
I am a junior attending Saugus High School. This past year, I have become especially interested in the politics of our country, state and city.
There have been several sites proposed for a new Castaic high school. We now have a new proposed site that needs to be fully examined and pass many reviews by local and state agencies.
Regarding The Signal editorial "Cooperation needed during water crisis" published in the Aug. 3 issue of the paper: Where in this cooperation do the state, county and city responsibilities come into play?
Recently a mob in Pakistan burned down eight Ahmadi Muslim homes, which resulted in the deaths of three children and a 55-year old grandmother.
Regarding the Michael Reagan column "Hollywood liberals are standing down for Israel" published Aug. 4 in The Signal: My thoughts exactly!
An article in The Signal July 3, 2014, quoted the proposed ballot language for the billboard referendum on November's ballot: "Shall Ordinance No. 14-02 adopting a Development Agreement with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertisement structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?"
Recently I was privileged to hear a presentation on the water crisis in our state, and also our problems here in Santa Clarita, regarding a shortage of water and an over-abundance of salt in our discharge into the Santa Clara River.
"Following the water rules" (Thursday's Signal) expresses a legitimate concern of SCV HOA residents - they are concerned about penalties for letting their lawns go brown as they cut back water use - landscaping accounts for some 60 percent of residential water use - because associations have rules about care and upkeep of homes, landscape and lawns.
Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.
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.
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.
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.
Another week, another opening of fine films.
There have been a great many suggestions about how this country should handle the crisis posed by the thousands of children invading our country.
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.
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.
