Mormons' opposition to gay marriage is hypocritical

On Sunday, June 29, a letter was read at all Mormon worship services worldwide calling on members to contribute their time and money to help pass the California initiative this November that would limit marriage to different-gender couples. The letter, from the Office of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said, "The Church's teaching and position on this moral issue are unequivocal. Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God." (Actually, the "State" did it before God did.)

Creditors must keep an eye on Newhall Land

Since the debtor is still in possession, the debtor, Newhall Land will still be paying the salaries of its executive officers, while those to whom they owe substantial debts must bite the bullet.

Development threatens our quality of life

It's apparent that our City Council has heard enough from the public whom it represents.

Kudos for Sheriff’s anti-crime program

Kudos to our Sheriff's Department, Parkway Cadillac and Michael Roth, who at a recent seminar sponsored by the city of Santa Clarita presented an ongoing program alerting us to the trends in criminal behavior and how to spot them.

An urban center by any other name still stinks

The Signal's apologetic approach (Signal editorial, June 27) to our city manager's goals, whether we call it urbanization or something else, seems to ignore the downsides of massive build-outs.

Mullen’s bitterness comes through

In response to Jim Mullen's article ("Why my father was no Tim Russert," June 25, 2008), first let me start off by offering my condolences for the loss of his father. He must be so very proud of him.

We don’t need whiners in the SCV

Just a few thoughts about professional whiners in our city:

Car wash article exaggerates

Regarding the proposed home car wash ban article ("Ban on home carwashing?" June 25):

Remember our troops when it gets hot out

I swore that if I made it home, I would never complain about hot summer days again.

Debate over acceptable growth heats up

As summer begins with triple-digit weather, so heats up SCV's debate regarding acceptable growth in our fine city.

God bless the tough Midwesterners

It's amazing how the people in the Midwest are enduring all the problems associated with floods. I don't know how they cope with such devastation.

Media must tell whole story of Iraq surge

While statistics are fed to media outlets like this paper to prop up the administration's and Rep. Buck McKeon's decision to support the surge, the facts ignored are that the weekly rate of American wounded has not gone down. The historical wounded report is found at icasualties.org, and it shows that in 2008 the number of wounded soldiers averages approximately 15 per week, which is the same average as the year before.

The flourishing green movement at COC

Having been a College of the Canyons student for the past five years has provided me with enough insight to say that the youthful exuberance of COC's recent green movement is a more positive experience than having no politics at all.

Kudos for improved Signal sports section

There must be a new sports editor at The Signal because over the last few weeks it has offered broader coverage, consistency in layout, and no more front pages with only two or three fluff stories, even on weekends.

Proud to be an American

Proud, grateful and privileged to have voted by mail on Friday 4/4/14.

Who gives the most to charity: conservatives or liberals?

The Letter to the Editor by Rob Kerchner (Defining difference) in the March 27 Signal is both unjustified and prejudicial. Unless Mr. Kerchner has telepathic powers, how could he possibly know what all "liberals" or most "liberals" or even one particular "liberal" may be thinking when it comes to whether they want the government, private enterprise, or little green Martians to duplicate in this country something they see overseas?

Those political signs

In regards to the political signs, I feel they are equivalent to graffiti. They are a complete eyesore and a possible safety hazard. Why are they even allowed?

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Alan Ferdman for City Council

The Santa Clarita City Council election of 2012, in hindsight, was a transitional election.

No Weste, Young Man

I have carefully considered the endorsement of Laurene Weste by the The Signal's Editorial Board published on March 16, 2014, and I feel stongly that it must be challenged.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER:Support for Gloria Mercado Fortine

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!

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Marsha McLean, Always Available to Citizens

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.

‘Noah’ — it’s just a movie

People (of SCV and others), get over it. "Noah" is a film. A Hollywood film.

Electronic billboard rush to judgment

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.

Why red-light cameras here?

It seems to me that if any city would need to have red-light cameras set up, it would be Los Angeles.

Don’t be taken in by Iran’s false diplomacy

Iran is a theocracy, which means it is led by its religious leaders. The Iranian people are a religious people.

We need more transparency in our elections

So sad to see another state legislator, Leland Yee, accused of criminal political corruption.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: The Need for New Blood on the City Council

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.

Defining difference

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!"

Consumers, take charge of the billboard issue

I fail to see what all the billboard hullabaloo is about. It's obvious these vast slabs of advertising are a visual blight.
