American beer should stay American

To all the shareholders of Anheuser-Busch who voted the wrong way the other day, I have a few words for you: Duh! What were you thinking?

A message about oil for our elected officials

Below is a letter that I have sent to Gov. Schwarzenegger, Sens. Boxer, and Feinstein, and Reps. McKeon, George Runner, and Strickland. I'm hoping it will stir people from their slumber (if the gas and food prices haven't already) and encourage them to make their voices heard in Sacramento and Washington.

Dense development at Smiser ranch? No way

Editor's note: While our July 3 call for comments about an urban center in the Santa Clarita Valley was not directed at the now-defunct The Avenue at Santa Clarita planned development, several readers responded with specific feedback on that proposal. Here is one letter.

‘Vertical’ development is not the answer

Editor's note: While our July 3 call for comments about an urban center in the Santa Clarita Valley was not directed at the now-defunct The Avenue at Santa Clarita planned development, several readers responded with specific feedback on that proposal. Here is one of them.

The Avenue would create a traffic nightmare

Editor's note: While our July 3 call for comments about an urban center in the Santa Clarita Valley was not directed at the now-defunct The Avenue at Santa Clarita planned development, several readers responded with specific feedback on that proposal. Here is one of them.

Do fireworks really damage air quality?

I found it quite perplexing that in Parimal Rohit's article ("SCV: Where you can see the air you breathe," July 8), neither he nor the South Coast Air Quality Management District official mentioned the recent fires as a possible cause for the poor air quality.

Age discrimination at the movies is unfair

Recently, in an effort to help my mother out, I went to buy movie tickets for her and a friend at the Edwards Cinema in Canyon Country.

The post office is getting too costly

I would like the public to know that it is getting a rough deal in the shipping and handling the post office is giving to the public.

Gay marriage: It’s time to give up witch hunts

I'm a straight, married man who doesn't worry about what other folks are doing. A wise state legislator recently remarked that with the war on terrorism, the economy, the collapse of the housing market and the high price of gasoline, he had more important things to worry about than gays getting married. I concur.

What about the rest of Canyon Country?

Let me begin by saying that I used to attend the so-called "Canyon Country" Community Action Committee meetings. I stopped going because it seemed to several of us at these meetings that it was all about the Whites Canyon area, except when they wanted to complain about signage at shopping centers or a particular business.

Subregions deserve their share of funds

A Los Angeles Times editorial accused county Supervisor Gloria Molina of being "parochial" and an "obstructionist" because she advocates for protecting the regional distribution of revenue under the proposed sales tax measure.

State should have taken on Blue Cross

On July 4, I read an article in The Signal titled "State feared insurance big guns." In summary, the article stated that Anthem Blue Cross had the largest number of rescissions "about 1,770" between January 1, 2004, and now. Having read this article, I turned a bright shade of purple. There is nothing that can destroy a family faster than to have their health insurance cancelled. Although the article does not say, I assume these were most likely individual insurance policies and not group policies.

Will the real urban center please stand up?

There has been a lot of talk generated over the term "urban center" - did our city manager say he wants to turn our suburban bedroom community into a legitimate urban center of its own, or was he incorrectly paraphrased?

Urban centers should first do no harm

The first rule of "urban centers" should be a line from the Hippocratic Oath: "First of all, do no harm."

An open letter to motorists of the Santa Clarita Valley

How can Steve Lunetta sleep at night?

There's nothing wrong with Mr. Lunetta questioning and challenging the assertions of the REMI report that a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have positive economic benefits as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (June 26, "The carbon tax has flaws").

A little respect, please

Once again, Councilman Bob Kellar slams his constituents by saying that many who signed the petitions to overturn the council's decision to permit digital billboard on our freeways were not fully aware of the full details of the proposal ("Billboard matter will be put to a vote," www.signalscv.com).

Let’s sue ‘em right back

Our city and local school districts should sue Shenkman & Hughes to force the Malibu-based law firm to stop its suits alleging bias in our election process unless they can prove discrimination against minorities.

COC’s Board of Trustees is impotent to effect change

During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.

Culture at COC needs healing

Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.
