The barricade that was erected at the intersection of Alaminos and Benz roads is another example of individuals who want the government to bail them out when they make poor decisions.
I am writing to voice my strong support of the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital master plan. As a member of the nursing leadership at the hospital, I've seen the results of a growing Santa Clarita Valley population and the limited resources and space at the community's only hospital.
I read your article about silent soccer games (Nov. 25) and would like to speak for those of us in favor of this move.
As Roman Catholics, we were appalled and offended by the comments made by Rev. Jay Scott Newman (of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Greenville, S.C., who said parishioners who voted for Barack Obama should perform penance for backing a candidate who supports "pro-abortion" policies). The 61 percent of
McCain's comment, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong," shows just how out of touch with middle-class voters he is. Home foreclosures are occurring at an incredible rate. Merrill Lynch was just bought by Bank of America. Lehman Brothers was just acquired by Barclay's.
I read with interest the article "Can't afford to live" in the SCV, which basically was about a meeting of the Valencia Industrial Association.
There we were again, completely cut off from going south on the Interstate 5 and Highway 14 freeways and side roads due to a closure because of a fire. And who can forget the same scenario during the 1994 earthquake?
Since I am one of those "faithful Democrats" John Castagna describes with such disdain in his letter to the editor on Nov. 7, I feel that I must respond to his diatribe.
I wonder how many people are aware of McSame's role in the savings and loan debacle of the '90s and his censure by the Senate?
It's time to get a few things straight regarding the Wall Street bailout.
Amazing - my childhood keyboard hero Elton John comes to the rescue and in a few simple words puts the whole issue of Proposition 8 into focus.
I would like to comment on the Nov. 19 letter to the editor regarding the anti-8 rally at the corner of McBean Parkway and Valencia Boulevard on Nov. 2.
A great Olympic champion, Bodie Miller, was brought to his knees in tears for millions to see because the NBC reporter kept asking about the recent death of his brother, even asking him what he saw when he looked up into the sky.
There are Republicans who believe in more limited government as well as supporting a woman's right to choose.
As regards to the unsightly billboards that line Railroad Avenue/Soledad Canyon Road, they are the single most annoying blight while driving down those avenues.
The default position is: elbow tucked against your side and bent at a 45-degree angle, wrist with smart phone in hand also at a 45-degree angle, head tilted to parallel the hand.
I am writing in response to Kevin Buck's Feb. 11 column in The Signal ("Obama Derangement Syndrome") in which he condemns the questioning of President Obama as nothing more than conspiracy theories and ginned-up scandals, often motivated by pure hatred.
California's Central Valley farmers are facing some of the worst drought conditions they have ever seen.
I am compelled at this time to address the 95-year celebration of the SCV Signal. I read the editorial in The Signal on Feb. 7 and was very impressed with this achievement by the newspaper.
I see no mention in the Feb. 9 issue of The Signal about the fact that the Sylmar quake happened on this date 43 years ago: Feb. 9, 1971.
(Councilman) TimBen (Boydston), if following the "established process" is the best way to achieve a given objective, why has the city wasted more than $7 million of taxpayer money on the Cemex issue?
Somewhere I read, or perhaps heard, that California drivers are the best in the country.
Wikipedia says, "A square dance is a dance for four couples (eight dancers) arranged in a square, with one couple on each side, facing the middle of the square."
I don't know about you, but to me, reducing the threat of climate change would best be accomplished by having good flood control, stout construction, a reliable water supply and affordable energy - Not by following leaders who think we can reduce the threat of climate change by stopping the change.
With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American - even at work - dresses like a bum, no pride in one's attire at all. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.
Regarding "Unions protest Postal Service outlets at Staples," Jan. 20 Signal: Staples wants to sell stamps! Horrors!
How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?
