As Roman Catholics, we were appalled and offended by the comments made by Rev. Jay Scott Newman (of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Greenville, S.C., who said parishioners who voted for Barack Obama should perform penance for backing a candidate who supports "pro-abortion" policies). The 61 percent of
McCain's comment, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong," shows just how out of touch with middle-class voters he is. Home foreclosures are occurring at an incredible rate. Merrill Lynch was just bought by Bank of America. Lehman Brothers was just acquired by Barclay's.
I read with interest the article "Can't afford to live" in the SCV, which basically was about a meeting of the Valencia Industrial Association.
There we were again, completely cut off from going south on the Interstate 5 and Highway 14 freeways and side roads due to a closure because of a fire. And who can forget the same scenario during the 1994 earthquake?
Since I am one of those "faithful Democrats" John Castagna describes with such disdain in his letter to the editor on Nov. 7, I feel that I must respond to his diatribe.
I wonder how many people are aware of McSame's role in the savings and loan debacle of the '90s and his censure by the Senate?
It's time to get a few things straight regarding the Wall Street bailout.
Amazing - my childhood keyboard hero Elton John comes to the rescue and in a few simple words puts the whole issue of Proposition 8 into focus.
I would like to comment on the Nov. 19 letter to the editor regarding the anti-8 rally at the corner of McBean Parkway and Valencia Boulevard on Nov. 2.
On Saturday, Nov. 15 at about 6 p.m., my husband and I were waiting to turn right onto Valencia Boulevard from McBean Parkway.
I met Sarah Palin in spring 2007 in Fairbanks, Alaska, when I attended the Alaska State Bar Convention. Sarah Palin was at the Thursday night dinner and sat with the Alaska State Supreme Court Chief Justice, who also was a very smart lady.
Less than a week after subpoenaed witness no-shows, and balking at the Alaska Legislature's Oversight Commission (eight Republicans and four Democrats) investigating her alleged abuse of power regarding her ex-brother-in-law in Troopergate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, former lipsticked-pitbull-turned-reporter-'fraidy cat and the Republican vice presidential hopeful has indicated she will cooperate with a separate probe started by her and being run by the three-member Governor Appointed Personnel Board (aka, people she can fire.)
Shame on The Signal. The Signal repeatedly ignores Santa Clarita Christian School's sports.
I sure am proud to be a conservative Republican. Yes, I voted for Senator John McCain and was disappointed with his loss. However, on Jan. 20, President-elect Barak Obama will be my president and I will respect that no matter what and will pray every day for him. His success equals ours.
My son Jimmy Ceballos recently returned home after serving three tours of duty in Iraq. This holiday season will be very special to our family.
I have never written or responded to a letter to the editor until now, but I cannot let Carole Lutness's "Republicans go after the poor" (Dec. 9) go without a response.
I appreciate the care being taken by our City Council in determining what should be the centerpiece of the Newhall roundabout.
Charlie Vignola opens his column Dec. 3 by writing: "Simply put, what I believe shouldn't affect you, and what you believe shouldn't affect me - period" ("Slippery slope for U.S.").
Regarding Gary Curtis's Dec. 6 letter to the editor, "Consequences of abortion": Words almost fail me, Mr. Curtis.
I have a couple of uncles I would rather forget, but I will admit they exist and I have met them.
