Our U.S. Representative does not serve his people well when he attacks the Democrats, blaming them for high fuel costs ("McKeon: Blame Dems for high gas," May 29). After all, he does represent all of us, including Democrats.
Although I've contacted The Signal several times regarding misinformation that was printed about my son, the mistakes continue.
I read Sharon Cotal's article in The Signal on Memorial Day ("Sorry, this school is in a no-hugging zone," May 26) and the more I read it, the more exasperated I became! I know the verdict is not in yet for Pinetree Elementary School, but it is totally absurd that an elementary school principal would even think young children should not be allowed to "hug, high-five, shake hands or just be close" to their classmates.
I just wanted to comment on the Kierkegaard quote run in "The Still Small Editorial" on May 16: "To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily; to not dare is to lose one's self entirely." I was hoping to put the quote within the context from which the author spoke. Though our current culture of thought probably interprets the above quote as taking a worldly risk (like pursuing a business venture or perhaps leaving one's ...
Many thanks to some special people and businesses. On May 21, Nora Ortiz and co-workers at the Hyatt Valencia hosted a group of special education students from Valencia High School on a tour and shared career information.
Buck McKeon may have some admirable qualities, but he was off base in blaming Democrats for gas prices.
Ted Kennedy has finally received his sentence for his part in the Chappaquiddick death of Mary Jo Kopechne.
One of the reasons Democrats are against Proposition 98 is because of the rent control elimination clause. They believe such laws prevent landlords from price gouging. What is the real impact of rent control? All it takes is simple applied economic principles from Econ 101.
This is my favorite time of the year. Every tree bursts forth with new foliage that ranges from blossoms to colorful new growth. All around our homes, paseos, city-landscaped roads, there are bushes, groundcovers, flowers, vines, all eagerly competing with each other in sheer beauty.
I recently read the (syndicated) column written by Tom Purcell, "Don't take your mother for granted," and I loved it. I am blessed to have one of the most amazing moms on the planet. I was raised to be confident and believe in myself. I was taught that I can do anything, I just have to try. My mom made sure that my brother and I always came before her.
In reading that the population in Santa Clarita might go up to 500,000, I noticed a few important things were left out: such as the schools to be built, the extra police and paramedics, not to mention hospitals. We sure like to build here, but we sure don't plan for what will be needed after the building.
In response to the article "Same-Sex Ruling Stirs SCV" (May 16, 2008), by Parimal M. Rohit and Katherine Geyer, I begin with one simple question to the readers of this newspaper: When so many Christian leaders assert that "marriage has been a union between a man and a woman since time immemorial," what Bible are they reading that has no mention of the many Hebrews who had multiple wives and concubines on the side?
In the quiet moments of the pre-dawn hour on a recent Saturday morning (April 26), coyotes entered my yard and took the life of my beloved dachshund.
I was not able to attend the meeting regarding the closing of the Transitional Care Unit at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. However, I did watch the "show" on television. I would love to have been there to voice my opinion.
On May 14, it was 93 degrees outside at noon. I got out of my car in the Mervyn's shopping center and I could hear a dog barking. I thought to myself that no one could be stupid enough to leave a dog in a parked car in this heat. I was able to trace the barking to a silver Toyota Sienna minivan, license number 5DXL812. The van was parked partially ...
I quote a recent editorial contribution by a Santa Clarita City Council member: "Public participation is an essential way ... to influence the decision-making process."
I read with interest the article on the effects of the Canada – U.S. pipeline and its relationship to climate change.
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."
