I was outraged on many levels by the "tabloid" journalism The Signal used in its article on Tia Torres and her pit bulls visiting Valencia High School.
Regarding the article on the front page Thursday, Dec. 11, 2008: While Mr. Herrera may have made a mistake, so also did Mr. Armbruster.
Not only am I disturbed by this article, but I'm more disturbed that The Signal would actually publish the article titled "Flag mistake fuels anger" (Dec. 11, 2008). All this does is encourage the ignorant to voice their quick-mouthed, half-witted opinions.
I may be only 22 years of age, but when my parents raised me, they taught me how to respect another human being.
I am appalled by your coverage of the upside-down flag incident in the Dec. 11, 2008 issue.
The Congressional Budget Office reports 40 percent of wage earners pay no federal income tax.
With the grave importance of the upcoming election, I find myself discussing the political situation with others more often.
For many years, the city of Santa Clarita ranked within the top-five safest cities in the country for its size.
With California state government spending reportedly jumping some $20 billion in the past four years, Democrats in the Legislature are reportedly seeking to triple automobile registration fees that could cost $1,000 per family.
I just read that State Senate candidate Tony Strickland received the endorsement of the Ventura Chamber of Commerce. The article included the California Chamber ratings for both Strickland and his opponent, Hannah-Beth Jackson. During their final year in the legislature, Strickland received a 100 percent rating from the chamber and Jackson had an abysmal 6.67 percent. At a time when local businesses struggle to survive and keep people employed, how can we afford to elect someone with such a poor record of supporting local businesses? We need someone who will put our state back on the right track and ...
Cam Noltemeyer's "Environmentally Speaking" column in the Oct. 2 edition contained several inaccurate and misleading statements regarding the Santa Clarita Valley's water supply.
Dick Shaw's letter Dec. 1, 2008, reminded me that, in case of major local disasters, we live in an area for which there are too few ways to escape.
Every year, the Santa Clarita Chapter of Pet Assistance Foundation of California holds two December "Pet Photos with Santa" events.
Thanks for bringing Leon Worden back on board.
Regarding "Teenager with gun removed from bus" (Oct. 2) by Melissa Gasca, Staff Writer: I don't know why it bothered me, but I feel compelled to ask why Ms. Gasca felt the father's attire (red 7-11 shirt and jeans) was important or necessary for this story?
Proud, grateful and privileged to have voted by mail on Friday 4/4/14.
The Letter to the Editor by Rob Kerchner (Defining difference) in the March 27 Signal is both unjustified and prejudicial. Unless Mr. Kerchner has telepathic powers, how could he possibly know what all "liberals" or most "liberals" or even one particular "liberal" may be thinking when it comes to whether they want the government, private enterprise, or little green Martians to duplicate in this country something they see overseas?
In regards to the political signs, I feel they are equivalent to graffiti. They are a complete eyesore and a possible safety hazard. Why are they even allowed?
The Santa Clarita City Council election of 2012, in hindsight, was a transitional election.
I have carefully considered the endorsement of Laurene Weste by the The Signal's Editorial Board published on March 16, 2014, and I feel stongly that it must be challenged.
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.
