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.

Vote-by-mail ballots sent too early

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.

A sense of propriety, or maybe not

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.

Is Obama the pied piper?

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!

Vehicle tax is necessary

To The Editor:

You can definitely put me on the side of the room that is against more unnecessary taxes - the key word being "unnecessary."

Laws should be enforced

To The Editor:

Thanks and goodbye to officer Tommy Banks. Yes, I got a ticket on Soledad. But you know what ... I was speeding and it reminded me to slow down.

DUI checks ineffective

To The Editor:

Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies spent a lot of officers' time and taxpayers' money during a recent weekend to arrest just three drunk drivers out of 916 cars stopped and inconvenienced at a DUI checkpoint ("DUI checkpoint in Valencia nets 4 arrests," March 30, 2008). That is a meager .33 percent success rate.

Ballot language needs to change

An article in The Signal July 3, 2014, quoted the proposed ballot language for the billboard referendum on November's ballot: "Shall Ordinance No. 14-02 adopting a Development Agreement with Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) for the removal of 62 advertisement structures, within the city, by Metro or any other means, and construction and operation of three digital billboards, adjacent to Interstate 5 and State Route 14 freeways, and the dedication to the city of revenue received from digital billboards, which creates an ongoing revenue stream, be adopted?"

Let’s tap the Columbia River

Recently I was privileged to hear a presentation on the water crisis in our state, and also our problems here in Santa Clarita, regarding a shortage of water and an over-abundance of salt in our discharge into the Santa Clara River.

HOAs can and are getting on board with drought restrictions

"Following the water rules" (Thursday's Signal) expresses a legitimate concern of SCV HOA residents - they are concerned about penalties for letting their lawns go brown as they cut back water use - landscaping accounts for some 60 percent of residential water use - because associations have rules about care and upkeep of homes, landscape and lawns.

Take it to heart and conserve water

Editor's note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.

Treat refugees with compassion

The relatively small country of Italy (compared to the USA) has managed to take in more than 70,000 illegal immigrants (refugees) fleeing poverty, war and oppression in Northern Africa.

Legalize marijuana — but with restrictions

There is no doubt that the legalization of marijuana is gaining favor throughout the country, and I have to say that I am for it - but with some very strong reservations.

Let’s derail the train and desalinate ocean water

I have been agonizing over our water shortage issues for some time now, and am worried at the impact of having neighbor snitching against water using neighbors, and the hard feelings it may cause.

Send the children back home

Base Hart districts on the high schools

In my humble opinion, the most straightforward, simplest answer to the William S. Hart Union High School District going to board member representation by areas/districts would be to add two board positions.

Let’s use our solar energy for our water

It seems incomprehensible that with the great shortage of water for this state, trillions of gallons of water lie off the cost and remains unused by those affected most.

Snake alert

Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.

We deserve better

John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!
