Have you noticed that our lifestyle is changing at a fast pace? Today's millionaires are nowhere near as well-off as yesterday's were. Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day. They are looking forward to the day their wife retires so they can "get out of Dodge," and possibly buy a few acres of land so they can grow their own food and have a windmill ...
The Signal has always had the BEST TV guide weekly, and it was in the Sunday edition. For some reason, you changed it to Friday, and it stinks. Friday to Friday.
Upon reading The Signal's recent article declaring city planners expect SCV's growth to expand to 500,000 people, I first thought, "Wow! How could our traffic infrastructure possibly handle that?"
I have a question which I think others in the Santa Clarita Valley may have regarding the "Newhall land files for bankruptcy" story on Page 3 of The Signal's print edition (June 9, 2008).
There's a cowboy in our neighborhood and he's cleaning up Soledad. Upon returning home from picking up my granddaughter at Sulphur Springs. I always see a cowboy picking up litter along Soledad Canyon Road. Wearing a cowboy hat and shirt, he's armed with a stick and garbage bag. He walks from our neighborhood, near Shadow Pines, up Soledad to Sand Canyon and back. The cowboy collects papers and trash along the way, filling a large ...
Mr. Beaumont stated in his letter ("Gay marriage ban a religious freedom issue," June 5, 2008) that he's voting yes in November to amend our state Constitution to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Our parents were married for 55 years on April 24, 2008. Our mother, Freda Gales, unexpectedly passed on March 20, 2008, laid to rest March 25. Our father, Claude, could not be without his wife and just as suddenly joined her, April 25. This is a tribute to their love and devotion. Dad heard Mom's faint calls today, It wasn't the first time he heard her say ... "Come be by my side, rejoice with ...
Much has been made of the defeat of Assembly Bill 2046, which included a provision precluding water suppliers from relying on groundwater that did not meet applicable state standards when assessing their water supply.
Editor's note: The following letter was sent to The Signal and to Santa Clarita Mayor Bob Kellar. I would like to add my concerns to the growing list of homeowners who are greatly concerned with the drastic spike in criminal activity in the neighborhoods surrounding Highlands Elementary School.
Why do we not hear about all of those who were speculators who purchased homes with the purpose of turning them around in two years to make a huge profit?
As a long time resident of Santa Clarita, I was pleased to see that 13,700 acres of our local Magic Mountain and seven miles of wild and scenic Piru Creek were included in Congressman Buck McKeon's and Senator Barbara Boxer's wonderful bipartisan wilderness bill for the Eastern Sierra and Northern San Gabriel Mountains ("McKeon bill protects 42,000 acres," May 30, 2008). Not that I wasn't also excited that this bill will protect more than 430,000 ...
Lynne Plambeck, Tom Purcell and Buck McKeon have all sounded off about the rising cost of gasoline. I've been studying this problem for many years, since it is obvious that oil is a finite resource. It's not going to last forever.
There is no need to travel to the (San Fernando) Valley for Transitional Care. The staff at the Santa Clarita Convalescent Hospital are warm, loving and compassionate to their patients and visitors.
I am very thankful to Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon for introducing a bill that will protect the most beautiful wild places and rivers in the Eastern Sierra and Santa Clarita. Hiking on our locals trails and enjoying the beautiful scenery around me has made a great impact and difference in my life.
The governor's proposed cuts in the budget are downright appalling. The cuts are particularly deep in the community colleges which are mandated to provide communities with respectful citizens who are law-abiding, who vote, and who become paramedics, nurses, firemen and policemen, among other professions. These students deserve our help and our communities deserve well-educated people to provide these services. The governor's budget seems determined to increase spending only on unemployment by putting a college education ...
I am very concerned that our democracy does not work in the Senate.
Jonathan Kraut's "Blame the bombers and nothing else" (April 23) is right about one thing: the acts perpetrated by the alleged Boston Marathon bombers the Tsarnaev brothers; Newtown's Adam Lanza; and cop terrorist Christopher Darner were all seeded in hate.
Congratulations to Scott Wilk on his success in gaining the approval of the Higher Education Committee of the Assembly for AB 806.
I really have to wonder at what passes for thinking in liberals. In his column - or maybe "rant" would be more accurate - on Wednesday, Gary Horton goes on a wild spree of finger-pointing about the failure of new gun control legislation at the federal level.
When I think about what the American people wanted in regards to gun control and what their representatives in Congress did for them, only one word comes to mind: betrayed.
Although the average American can celebrate Tax Freedom Day on April 18, Californians must wait nearly a week longer - until April 24 - to join the celebration.
California's single-party supermajority in Sacramento continues to churn out bad bills, harming children and families in the Golden State.
After reading lots of negative letters from a group I call "The Angry Five," I have a very positive story to tell.
It seems that it is difficult for some people to react to good news and a positive theme, especially the one relating to alcoholism.
As is usual in his columns, Kevin Buck took some big liberties with the truth in his column "It's been a long and winding road" (April 16), in which he lauded Democrats for everything good in this country while blaming Republicans for everything bad.
Kim Jong-Un is the current leader of North Korea, and I believe whenever he has enough nuclear power to reach mainland America he shall do so.
A column by Kevin Bayona published earlier this month tells us we should not be ashamed of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I just wanted to belatedly thank the Santa Clarita City Council for continuing the great tradition of honoring our country and its soldiers by placing flags along Lyons Avenue.
I was pleased to see your coverage on the National Parks Service's recommendations on the National Recreation Area.
On Friday, April 12, schools in Valencia were closed. Why? They seem to be closed much too often.
