'Racism' charge insults real victims of racism

How pathetic is it that a paper like The Signal will do anything to get headlines, and some people are so starved for attention that they will malign a person, an organization or even a whole system?

Of pit bulls and humans

Is it just me, or is there a one-sided tilt on the way this pit bull issue is perceived at Valencia High School?

Hospital plan bad for Santa Clarita

Hope and change are the buzz words of 2008. Obama's presidency will ultimately be judged on its effectiveness at producing positive results. In the same way the City Council and G&L Realty's hospital expansion plan will be judged.

December 19, 2008 | By John Vedder Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Hospital expansion

The current proposal to expand Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital does not make sense. The City Council should do all in its power to modify it until it does.

Why Obama?

Sarah Palin - reason enough!

December 18, 2008 | By Richard Ramirez Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Nothing new with Palin

Surely voters are tired of elected representatives who lie to them, waste taxpayer money and don't take care of business.

Kudos to the council

I am writing in response to Pam Ross's letter regarding the City Council's meeting about the diverter at Benz Road.

Say it ain’t so, Joe

Within the last two weeks, the self-proclaimed maverick Sarah Palin has managed to stir her supporters into a frenzy of paranoia and intolerance reminiscent of the McCarthy era.

December 18, 2008 | By Chris Blankenhorn Valencia | Letters to the Editor


She’s out of touch

Sarah Palin purports to be a "Joe Six-Pack" kind of person who understands the "average" American citizen.

Say no to Measure SA

Voting "no" on Measure SA is the sensible thing to do.

Of winners, losers and American sports

I listened to (Wednesday's presidential debate) between innings of the baseball game. The Dems said they won; the Republicans said they won.

GOP becoming irrelevant?

With their registrations sinking and their political clout withering, California Republicans have come out of the November election in danger of slipping into political irrelevance across much of the state.

SCV off the grid through HOAs

Now that we're past an election in which most Republican and Democratic candidates ran on platforms that promised switching to renewable energy, I feel it is time for those politicians and the communities they serve, as well as the city of Santa Clarita, to begin the work of transformation.

Ballot language needs to change

An article in The Signal July 3, 2014, quoted the proposed ballot language for the billboard referendum on November's ballot: "Shall Ordinance No. 14-02 adopting a Development Agreement with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertisement structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?"

Let’s tap the Columbia River

Recently I was privileged to hear a presentation on the water crisis in our state, and also our problems here in Santa Clarita, regarding a shortage of water and an over-abundance of salt in our discharge into the Santa Clara River.

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.

August 03, 2014 | Sean McLaughlin President, Old Orchard II HOA | Letters to the Editor


Take it to heart and conserve water

Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.

Treat refugees with compassion

The relatively small country of Italy (compared to the USA) has managed to take in more than 70,000 illegal immigrants (refugees) fleeing poverty, war and oppression in Northern Africa.

Legalize marijuana — but with restrictions

There is no doubt that the legalization of marijuana is gaining favor throughout the country, and I have to say that I am for it - but with some very strong reservations.

Let’s derail the train and desalinate ocean water

I have been agonizing over our water shortage issues for some time now, and am worried at the impact of having neighbor snitching against water using neighbors, and the hard feelings it may cause.
