I congratulate you on Monday, July 14's front page. The Signal senior and possibly the only weekend writer Jim Holt rules the front page.
I am responding to Don Gately's letter of July 17. Our society was founded on traditional values. Those values are a foundation that holds us together.
Do I believe that government should impose restrictions on SUV owners for contributing to the oil scarcity problem by driving their gas-guzzling Leviathans? By all means, no.
Being a resident directly next door to the Smiser Mule Ranch parcel, it grieves me that the city would even consider this an eligible site for an "urban center." In other words, another shopping center.
I am writing regarding the appointment of Frank Ferry's secretary to the parks commission. The only information we have been given regarding her abilities and background in parks and recreation is that she has been Mr. Ferry's secretary for the past number of years and seems to be good at that job.
I am writing this letter to show support for the master-planned expansion project at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. I side with the overwhelming majority of community leaders who support this project. I have lived in this community for over 22 years. I have seen growth that has made Santa Clarita a very popular and desirable place to live and raise a family. I have raised four children here myself and have enjoyed ...
What has happened to our government? If I remember correctly, we are supposed to be for and by the people, not for the person who can raise the most money and make empty promises.
I am writing to comment on Stephen Winkler's July 3 submission entitled "Budget Cuts" and the subsequent online response from a reader who dismissed Mr. Winkler's assessment that budget cuts are not a partisan or ideological issue because they impact all Californians, including our seniors and children.
I am speaking from experience. I was driven to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in an ambulance about three weeks ago.
Thank you for the recent article about the many options for swimming lessons here in Santa Clarita ("The benefits of summer swim lessons," July 15).
I am appalled at the stupidity of drivers on the road. The vehicle code requires that when an emergency vehicle comes upon your car with sirens and/or lights flashing, to PULL TO THE RIGHT!
Year after year, cities across the state adopt balanced budgets in a timely manner, being careful to spend within their means.
Vinton M. Lampton in his letter to the editor on July 6 ("God Bless the tough Midwesterners") said what many have said and believe but haven't put into print.
Right now, I feel as though I have failed myself, my family, and my civic duty. Roger Gitlin was correct in naming our worthless City Council members Frank Ferry, Laurene Weste, Marsha McLean and Laurie Ender as "no shows" at a rally that was to focus on two unfairly convicted and unfairly imprisoned border patrol agents, and an immigration problem that is draining our city, state and country of resources, not to mention badly needed ...
A new library in downtown Newhall will bring a number of benefits to our community. As the superintendent of schools in a district that includes the Newhall redevelopment area, I was pleased to serve on the city's Newhall Library Committee because I knew a modern library would be a valuable asset for the area. I also write this letter as a parent of children who used the Newhall branch library and someone who was involved ...
Making a right-hand turn off Decoro onto Arroyo Seco Street at Arroyo Seco Junior High School on Friday May 31, 2013, was a most harrowing experience.
Did you know that there is a professional men's futbol team in the Santa Clarita Valley? A legitamite NPSL (National Premier Soccer League) team that gives striving youth players in and around the Santa Clarita Valley an opportunity to play very competitive futbol?
In her column "Truth Floats despite tyranny on the Potomac" (The Signal, May 28), Susan Stamper Brown was right that allegations of high-level criminal activity can bring down a government.
I have a hard time following the rationale of global warming and climate change. I think the politicians and activists have it all wrong.
Regarding the article by the Rev. David Hegg "What is happening to the U.S.?" (May 26): To write negatively about the young American generation is very unfair, and untrue.
We have some questions about Benghazi and administration policies to ask of President Barack Obama and our fellow Americans:
My hat is off to teacher Monica Ratliff. With small campaign funds and an abundance of "common-sense" rhetoric, she defeated a strong favorite for a Los Angeles school board win.
Hurray for Mr. Petzold's letter "Cemex bill would cost us millions") (May 24) about the millions more the city is going to spend on the Cemex deal.
I read Tina Dupuy's column "Apple could pay for Moore - and more" (May 28) and was frankly pretty amazed at the lack of intellectual consistency in it, though I probably shouldn't have been, given all the recent histrionics from the Left.
I just read Betty Arensons' May 24 column, "Where is the outrage?" wherein she describes all the recent and many of the past scandals attributed to this administration and wonders why there is not more public outrage.
In recognition of the increased presence of our two-wheeled counterparts on the street enjoying spring weather, May has been declared National Bike Month. During this time of year, it is especially important to have a heightened sense of awareness on the road and be on the lookout for those traveling by bicycle.
