To The Editor: I've been enjoying The Signal's Web site. Really terrific. Sharon Cotal recently wrote an article about our school ("Christian high schools offer options," April 14, 2008), and it was fun to see it not only on the front page but also up on the Web site.
After 24 years, I am amazed, sad and disgusted about the changes that have been going on with The Signal over the last several months. Where is The Signal, our local paper? Instead of a paper whose articles should be about what's happening in the SCV, I get a mess of here, there and everywhere. I will be changing papers when my subscription expires.
To The Editor: That was a great piece on Melody Ranch ("Down on Main Street at Melody Ranch," "A Closer Look," April 20, 2008 by Stephen K. Peeples, Signal Online Editor). I always learn something new about that place.
To The Editor: I am writing to express my disappointment in the recycling system that is in effect this year. We have
To The Editor: America is fortunate that both the Democratic and Republican candidates are extremely qualified for the
Recently two local Republicans announced they would be writing commentaries for The Signal in addition to Monday's "Right Her Right Now." These two men, Steve Lunetta and Paul Strickland, have different styles but both write excellent commentaries. The news of their more frequent submissions is gratifying on a couple of fronts. One, The Signal is pretty much dominated by the left six days out of seven (nationally and locally) and two, Messrs. Lunetta and Strickland ...
To The Editor: It is fair to say that I was extremely disappointed in the results of the recent local election to fill two empty seats on the Santa Clarita City Council.
To The Editor: Once Maria Gutzeit was endorsed by liberal Gary Horton, she never had a chance to win.
To The Editor: I couldn't agree more with Dave McEachern (April 15). We can do more for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. Indeed, we should have no tolerance for bullying and name-calling.
To The Editor: It's truly sad that columnists like Mr. Lunetta perpetuate false arguments on subjects as important as national security.
To The Editor: I am reminded on a daily basis what an amazing place Santa Clarita is to live and raise a family. Every time I drive by a local, award-winning school, every time I shop at the ever-improving mall or eat at an excellent restaurant, and every time I meet a new, friendly community member, I am reminded that Santa Clarita is the most amazing place around! Today was a day that, more than ...
To The Editor: Now that the City Council election is over, I sure hope that all those who ran will remove all of the signs they have placed on almost every street corner.
To The Editor: I use vote-by-mail. I got the information from my mailbox, read it all carefully and mailed the ballot back within a few days.
To The Editor: I was initially not amused by Pat Bagley's cartoon this morning (April 9, 2008) representing Charlton Heston as a gun-waving nut outside the gates of heaven. However, after ruminating on this for a bit I thought, well, actually, his NRA participation was presented by the media as defining the man in his later life.
To The Editor: I have been sitting on the sidelines looking and listening to all sides, and it came to me - Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the Pied Piper!
You've got to hand it to our local Dem-socialist loyalists: when it comes to singing their one-note song from the same hymnal, Charlie Vignola and Jonathan Kraut have the tune down pat.
I opened my Signal last Sunday and there was that beautiful bug that resides on Bouquet Canyon Road!
I ride around town and on the freeway and wonder why I just paid $124 to register my car when I see all those driving their cars with expired license tags two to six months old.
The following quotation is taken from page 127 of "The Western Heritage" (1999).
By now it has been widely reported that President Obama's pledge of keeping your insurance policy turned out to be not true - millions of plans have already been canceled nationwide.
A new voter law disenfranchises voters in Texas. It takes aim at the poor and minorities living in that state.
Why don't we bring art education back to our schools?
Fact: Between 30 and 40 million Americans have no access to health insurance.
Regarding The Signal story "Councilman files claim" published Nov. 8, 2013:
I spoke at the last City Council meeting about the latest outburst by Councilman Frank Ferry.
This is written to respond to The Signal's Nov. 11, 2013, "Our View" editorial entitled "Whiplash from chloride decision," which alleged a lack of transparency behind the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District's decision-making process.
In regards to Councilman Frank Ferry's outburst directed at Cam Noltemeyer and Mayor Kellar's subsequent apology: I have been in the audience at City Council meetings when Ms. Noltemeyer has delivered one of her invective rants.
Now that the reality of Obamacare is setting in, we can all be mindful of the fact that we can thank Chief Justice John Roberts for the pain.
This is a copy of a letter to Dr. Dianne Van Hook, the chancellor of College of the Canyons:
I was recently thinking that people, at least in Santa Clarita, are getting much more polite and courteous than they used to be.
