Someone stop the sign wielders

I don't know what is more annoying. Gavin Newsom's gravelly, whiny voice telling me gay marriage is gonna happen whether I like it or not, or the fundamentalists of SCV knocking on my door asking how I am going to vote.

I can’t take away someone’s rights

I am writing to discuss an issue that I feel compelled to bring up. Before I begin, I ask that you listen to all I have to say without social, political or cultural bias because I believe this is a universal offense, one that should be recognized by all parties and dealt with accordingly.

Zip it and hit it

I, for one, have had it with hearing about all the mega-multimillion-dollar contracts for sports' so-called "superstars."

Why isn't the media nuts over ACORN

If anyone doubts that the drive-by media is 99 percent in the tank for socialism, Barack Obama's candidacy in particular, one has only to follow the unfolding voter registration scandal in states like Ohio, Florida and North Carolina.

You want to build that hospital where?

What about our demonstration?

While I read The Signal's article "Cheers, jeers for protestors" with interest, I was quite disappointed with the one-sided coverage of the Proposition 8 demonstrations in the Santa Clarita. "Yes on 8!" volunteers held similar demonstrations on Oct. 19, on several major intersections around the valley, receiving both support and criticism.

A high school in my backyard is OK

With regards to the front page article published Oct. 18 stating "Val Verde residents oppose Castaic High School site," I am a Val Verde resident and support the location for the high school in the industrial center.

Vasquez High failed student, family

The Vasquez High School principal states that Vasquez High School has a zero tolerance for bullies. If there truly was a zero tolerance policy in place, the bullying of the boy that committed suicide would not have continued on a daily basis.

Eliasberg's editorial is illogical

In response to the editorial "Snippets? Associations? Who is Barack Obama?" (The Signal, Oct. 24): Mr. Eliasberg leads what he believes is a logical response to Obama's political moves, such as his snippets argument and denial of guilt by association. While these methods may be politically motivated, we should also examine what Mr. Eliasberg says about Mr. Obama.

Hey, America, listen to Powell

Take heed, America, and listen to what Colin Powell, Secretary of State 2001-2005, retired general, and a Republican(!), had to say about why he is endorsing Barack Obama for President of the United States and why he is not endorsing John McCain.

HOAs can and are getting on board with drought restrictions

"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.
