This letter is another in response to The Signal's article on July 25, headlined "Family grapples with loss of toddler."
After reading Betty Arenson's rant about Cindy McCain, I am beginning to wonder why it is that she doesn't have a column of her own.
The SCV Committee on Aging Corporation Board of Directors is pleased to add its support to the proposed new library slated for the downtown Newhall area.
Regarding the recentater main break in Valencia, I am curious to know what - if any - measures were taken to filter the water of chloramine before the water reached the storm drains, as this particular break was near the Santa Clara River.
What an absolute fool! When Bush first met Putin he said, "I looked the man in the eye. I was able to get a sense of his soul."
In 2001, Santa Clarita Valley residents approved Measure V, a $158 million bond to fund facility modernization projects, improve classrooms and build new schools, including the construction of a Castaic high school.
After reading Tim Myers' article about G&L Realty's contribution to Laura Ender's campaign, I could only wonder about his motivation for writing such a biased opinion. He talks about assuming facts not in evidence but never mentions any of the facts that are in evidence.
Network TV likes sex! Just not within marriage.
Another school year begins, and despite consistently rising gas prices and the latest war (Russia-Georgia), which in all likelihood is to secure future access to known oil supplies, there are still lots of folks who park and burn Texas Tea waiting to pick up their kids.
Your editorial cartoon comparing the U.S.S.R.'s 1968 invasion of Czechoslavakia and America's global war on terror in the Aug. 16 paper was not even fit to use as fish wrap.
I recently participated in a conference call/town hall forum with our local congressional representative "Buck" McKeon. I was one of many callers who got to listen in and vote on the issue of what to do about our oil crisis.
This is in response to an article I read in the Aug. 6, 2008, Signal titled "Online Marketing: You could do it, too!"
A few weeks ago I discovered Ken Keller's "Inside Business" column in your Wednesday edition of The Signal. I have to say, as a local businessman myself, that Ken's insights are sound, tried, and true.
What are the essential ingredients to successful governance?
I am writing to thank you and the assistant city editor, Katherine Geyer, for the ongoing coverage you have given the Smart Growth SCV struggle against the for-profit medical office buildings proposed on the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital site.
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.
In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."
Last week the House of Representatives passed the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 4138), a simple measure by Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that would enable members of Congress to sue the Executive Branch in federal court when it disregards or flagrantly violates the U.S. Constitution.
Now that the saga of Flight 370 is coming to a close, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.
Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.
The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.
