Well, where is she?

I have one question for John McCain: If Sarah Palin is "absolutely ready," as you claim, to be vice president or president right now, then why has she been hiding from American voters?

December 11, 2008 | By Angela Muhl Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Benz neighborhood part of problem and solution

I read yet another article in The Signal about the "Benz neighborhood" and how the traffic problems have "pitted neighbors against each other."

The SCV Food Pantry needs your help

As the executive director of the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry, we've seen many more families hurting this year than ever before - local families struggling to put food on the table and senior citizens forced to make the decision whether to purchase their prescribed medications or food they need each month.

December 11, 2008 | By Belinda Crawford Executive Director, SCV Food Pantry Newhall | Letters to the Editor


Educators must have a voice in matters

In response to the article "Mixed emotions over charter idea" (Dec. 1), the Board of Supervisors in its zeal to install charter schools has simply dismissed the highly professional education staff of the Los Angeles County Office of Education.

Hey! We found your missing monkey

This is to the dad who was looking for his daughter's toy brown monkey at The Habit restaurant Thursday night.

Rape and punishment

If an American citizen is convicted of rape, his punishment is severe, possibly even life in prison. Why, then, should alleged rapist Adrian Arriano be deported (for the third time) if he is convicted?

Love that TV image

Neil Postman, author of "Amusing Ourselves to Death," offers a prophetic voice when he says that television politics offers its viewers a compelling image of themselves in a particular candidate.

Thanks so much for John Boston

I join wholeheartedly with John Boston's prayer, "Dear Lord, save me from the politically correct sub-committee of The Always Victimized."

Hey, Detroit, how about some creativity?

Instead of a total bailout for the Detroit Three, what about making it attractive for prospective car buyers to buy an American-made vehicle?

Great political cartoons

At first, when I viewed the two political cartoons on the opinion page of the Sunday Signal (Nov. 16), I reacted to them with anger.

Go, Team Signal!

I wanted to thank The Signal and Mr. Collier for their recent coverage of the Saugus High School Band and Color Guard.

The health care threat

Lack of creativity, not lack of money, is threatening health care coverage for more than 160,000 children. Like most of the state's health-care safety net, California's Healthy Families program for uninsured children in low-income families is facing the budget ax.

Take time to do the bailout right

Isn't it interesting that regulation and oversight were fighting words for the investment houses, until they stopped making huge profits. Then, when the marketplace started working and their short-sighted risky business practices caught up with their bottom line, they want to be bailed out even before they straighten out their own shops!

Palin in 2012

In the far-right's non-reality-based universe - in which logic was entirely abandoned in lieu of whatever reality the Rovian twisters deemed essential - they are already attacking a popularly elected president-elect before he has spent a minute in the Oval Office.

Proud to be an American

Proud, grateful and privileged to have voted by mail on Friday 4/4/14.

April 09, 2014 | By Lois Eisenberg Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Who gives the most to charity: conservatives or liberals?

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?

Those political signs

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?

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Alan Ferdman for City Council

The Santa Clarita City Council election of 2012, in hindsight, was a transitional election.

April 06, 2014 | By Spencer Leafdale Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


No Weste, Young Man

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.

April 06, 2014 | By Steve Petzold Saugus | Letters to the Editor


PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER:Support for Gloria Mercado Fortine

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!

April 06, 2014 | By Al Adelini Newhall | Letters to the Editor


PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Marsha McLean, Always Available to Citizens

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.

April 06, 2014 | By Marsha McLean | Letters to the Editor


‘Noah’ — it’s just a movie

People (of SCV and others), get over it. "Noah" is a film. A Hollywood film.

April 02, 2014 | Karen Kaplan Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Electronic billboard rush to judgment

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.

April 02, 2014 | Mike McSkane Newhall | Letters to the Editor


Why red-light cameras here?

It seems to me that if any city would need to have red-light cameras set up, it would be Los Angeles.

Don’t be taken in by Iran’s false diplomacy

Iran is a theocracy, which means it is led by its religious leaders. The Iranian people are a religious people.

April 01, 2014 | Dana L. Stern Sr. Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


We need more transparency in our elections

So sad to see another state legislator, Leland Yee, accused of criminal political corruption.

April 01, 2014 | Carole Lutness Valencia | Letters to the Editor


PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: The Need for New Blood on the City Council

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.

March 30, 2014 | By TimBen Boydston Councilman | Letters to the Editor


Defining difference

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!"

March 27, 2014 | Rob Kerchner Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Consumers, take charge of the billboard issue

I fail to see what all the billboard hullabaloo is about. It's obvious these vast slabs of advertising are a visual blight.

March 27, 2014 | Bill Lyons Saugus | Letters to the Editor
