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?
Is it just me, or is there a one-sided tilt on the way this pit bull issue is perceived at Valencia High School?
I'm a resident of the Cordova mobile home park and attended the hearing at City Hall on the evening of Dec. 3, the first-ever hearing appealing a rent increase.
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.
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.
Sarah Palin - reason enough!
Surely voters are tired of elected representatives who lie to them, waste taxpayer money and don't take care of business.
I am writing in response to Pam Ross's letter regarding the City Council's meeting about the diverter at Benz Road.
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.
Sarah Palin purports to be a "Joe Six-Pack" kind of person who understands the "average" American citizen.
Voting "no" on Measure SA is the sensible thing to do.
I listened to (Wednesday's presidential debate) between innings of the baseball game. The Dems said they won; the Republicans said they won.
Business students at West Ranch High School have been taking their assignment seriously.
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.
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.
Regarding Karen Kaplan's letter of May 26, "Lousy films in the SCV," I've been writing letters on this subject for a couple of years.
I totally agree with Karen Kaplan's letter to the editor, published May 26 and titled "Lousy films in the SCV."
Regarding The Signal editorial "Cooperation needed during water crisis" published in the Aug. 3 issue of the paper: Where in this cooperation do the state, county and city responsibilities come into play?
Recently a mob in Pakistan burned down eight Ahmadi Muslim homes, which resulted in the deaths of three children and a 55-year old grandmother.
Regarding the Michael Reagan column "Hollywood liberals are standing down for Israel" published Aug. 4 in The Signal: My thoughts exactly!
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?"
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.
"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.
Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.
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.
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.
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.
I am a new subscriber to The Signal. I missed your satirical editorial piece on July 13, which Michelle Boehm responded to in the July 20 issue of The Signal.
Another week, another opening of fine films.
There have been a great many suggestions about how this country should handle the crisis posed by the thousands of children invading our country.
