More study needed on drug testing

To The Editor:

On March 27, The Signal reported that Hart School District officials, after facing considerable opposition from parents and faculty, are still in limbo concerning the implementation of random student drug testing (a practice that is becoming more common in America) in an attempt to deter drug use.

Vote Obama, forget McCain

In what alternative universe does Stephen Winkler reside ("Think before you vote," Letters, April 24)? Hillary Clinton is the Democratic party candidate and John McCain is a liberal Republican?

Darn that Signal

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.

'Do as I say, not as I do'

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 set forth clear, supported information. Alas, the announcement was not good news for all.

Who are the real losers?

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.

Election recap

To The Editor:

Once Maria Gutzeit was endorsed by liberal Gary Horton, she never had a chance to win.

Hart is trying hard

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.

Lunetta's case is weak

To The Editor:

It's truly sad that columnists like Mr. Lunetta perpetuate false arguments on subjects as important as national security.

Time to take down campaign signs

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.

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?

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.

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.
