I support Measure SA and would like to see Sierra Vista Junior High School updated. I am a former teacher who sent my sixth-grade students to Sierra Vista in 1966. The school is old and needs modernization. I would also like to see Castaic have its own high school for the students to attend near their own homes, thus relieving Santa Clarita high schools of overcrowding. It's well worth the extra $5 per $100,000 of ...
Why is it that any criticism of Sen. Obama and his associations with terrorists and racists, and his lack of experience always elicits cries of racism from the Democrat camp, including the mainstream media?
I am writing in response the Dec. 11 article "Kosher." In response to the incredible events that have occurred regarding the Stevenson Ranch Homeowners Association menorah, I am personally amazed at the HOA's handling of this issue.
I hope the flaming liberals are still happy with the new president-elect. Not too many in this valley, though - flaming liberals, that is.
Dr. Barstis of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, could you please tell me where you live so that I can locate a small community hospital in your neighborhood, buy it, pay off the local planning officials to throw out the existing master plan for your neighborhood, and proceed to build another UCLA mega-medical center on your block?
This letter is in response to The Signal's story on Oct. 2, "Vice principal expels pit bulls."
Does school start too early? I go Valencia High School, and our school starts at 8 a.m. This is too early in the morning. We students have to wake up early in the morning to get ready for school, and we don't get enough sleep. School lets out at 3 p.m. for most students. This gives the students about seven hours to get all their homework done, eat dinner, go to any extra-curricular activities, and ...
Our United States is beginning another financial crisis. I remember the financial crisis of 1929. I was born in 1916, which made me a teenager when Wall Street crashed. We heard about men jumping to their deaths from skyscrapers because they couldn't face the results of their financial ruin. No one took such a violent out in our little town of Crawford, Nebraska, but men were found standing on the street or leaning against buildings with defeated, sad faces.
I write this letter in response to Dr. Barstis' reference in his letter to The Signal (Oct. 13) to those of us who are requesting a smart and honest hospital expansion plan - versus the current proposed plan which is laden with questionable motives, continued dishonest representation, and little in the way of actual hospital expansion - as "quacks."
Is the current bear market different from past bear markets? Take a close look at what investment professionals have discovered about this bear market, how it compares with previous ones and what lessons we can learn.
The Signal's Oct. 12 editorial gave an overview of the lack of financial/spending controls of the William S. Hart Union High School District but concluded local taxpayers should vote for another $300 million bond, Measure SA, anyway. Previous bond construction cost overruns are at least $43 million, with a recently stated figure of $80 million. That is all taxpayer money (Measure V). Hart's superintendent asserts measures exist to preclude such from reccurring, but we have ...
The Republicans may be "getting behind our president" now, but I recall John McCain having to quiet the "booing" Republican crowd at his concession speech several times.
My wife and I attended a premiere held in Canyon Country for the opening of "The Women." Now, the movie was cute, and we enjoyed it. The theater staff was great, and they worked hard on their end.
If the U.S. government has to bail out all the banks and lending companies with taxpayers' money, then I think they should have to feel part of the pain by losing a part of their overpaid salaries and all of the perks.
They say that insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. If this is true, why would we send another tax-and-spend liberal to Sacramento? Hannah-Beth Jackson has a long record of increasing taxes and growing government. If she were to become our next state senator, Democrats would essentially hold a two-thirds majority in the senate, thereby eliminating the need to negotiate on how much of our ...
In a Feb. 22 Letter to the Editor in The Signal, Brian Baker claims that President Obama is a "socialist."
The recent movie "Lincoln" was highly acclaimed in this year's Oscar-considerations.
A key difference between Left and Right is that when the Right transgresses the freedom of others, it violates its own tenets.
Regarding Alice Khosravy's column "California is at bottom for business," (Feb. 22), Khosravy's excellent commentary was so clear and so factual citing a huge - if not t-h-e huge - problem that is at the core of California being on life support as a state, a once-thriving, enviable state.
The Boy Scouts of America need to allow gays into their organization because that is the moral imperative, if you will, toward "a more perfect union."
Leftists of late have become very defensive about being called socialist in their ideology, as typified by Kevin Buck's column (Feb. 19, "Straw men live in glass houses").
CNN news anchor Deb Feyerick recently asked "The Science Guy" Bill Nye if global warming caused the latest asteroid.
"Marriage" is shorthand for a specific legal arrangement between a man and a woman, just as "corporation" or "limited partnership" is a specific legal arrangement between shareholders, business partners, etc.
I was annoyed and saddened by a comment demeaning the Signal: "The Signal is biased, ignorant and often inept at reporting news."
