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.
I read a blog the other day, and a writer was questioning their Mormon neighbors who were having their sixth child.
In reply to the Our View editorial ("Urban center? Not in Santa Clarita!" June 27).
A message to Ken Eliasberg ("The Scott McClellan imbroglio," June 20): To denigrate Scott McClellan by suggesting that he is a snake or merely incompetent only points up your willingness to accept the lies of the Bush Administration.
After almost getting hit trying to help the ducks cross Newhall Ranch Road from the new water spot back to Bridgeport, I thought: "Why can't we put up DUCK CROSSING signs so the idiots who travel 80 miles per hour won't wonder where all the feathers came from?"
What would you do if your child came home one day and asked for help with his or her math homework?
I do not like your use of reporters' pictures with the stories on your Web site. It is distracting and confusing.
Thank you, Diana Sevanian, for your informative column about the home-delivered meals program for our valley's seniors ("A main course for senior survival," June 8, 2008) and the great need for additional funds to continue to feed these poor house-bound souls. On the second page above Diana's column, we are informed that the city will spend $25 million for a new sports complex, including but not limited to a new BMX track, new skateboard park, and so on.
The city of Santa Clarita and the Canyon Country Advisory Committee have been collaborating on proactive code enforcement issues for the last two years. Questions relative to what ordinances should be targeted, how enforcement policies should be set and how we can assist our neighbors who may require help coming into compliance, have all been on the table.
I was pleased to learn that Congressman Buck McKeon has introduced legislation to protect forever as wilderness two wild places in the Angeles National Forest close to my home in Canyon Country. Wilderness protection is the highest level of protection that any area can receive, and it's something that we can be especially proud of because it's not given lightly and can only happen by act of Congress.
A lot of folks like to say that the Republicans support the military. June 15 marked the 76th anniversary of the 1932 Republican-controlled Senate's rejection of the Patnam Bonus Bill, which would have paid earlier bonuses to the veteran soldiers of World War I then suffering starvation in the Great Depression.
How ironic that above Diana Sevanian's story on the tragic plight of the Senior Center's Home-Delivered Meals Program would be a commentary by Councilwoman Laurie Ender espousing the city's $25 million expansion of the Sports Complex. How shameful!
Half of The Signal's June 15 editorial summarized recent allegations of "sexually inappropriate" conduct by William S. Hart Union High School District employees and a volunteer. The critical question, and the one that district staff has already been answering for understandably concerned parents, appears below the fold. That question is: "Where is the district on this?"
Is it just me, or have there been some issues with the editing of the newspaper lately? Just in today's (Saturday, May 24) paper for example, page A1 states the forecast will be High: 64 Low: 43, with isolated showers.
Thank you for making continual, positive improvements in the sports section and staff at The Signal. The articles are becoming a more fair and balanced representation of what is really going on in local high school sports. Thanks and keep up the good work!
Here is what gets me: The Republicans are always asking, where are the jobs? Well as of March 1, 2013, they are going to let thousands of people get laid off.
The toll roads are great for the young people but how about us older ones that still like to get out and see things. ? How about making it free for older people?
Have you ever seen the Investigation Discovery shows such as "Solved", "Disappeared", or "Extreme Forensics"?
I was upset hearing that Rick Perry traveled to California on a "job-poaching mission."
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").
