In support of pit bulls at Valencia High

School starts too early in Valencia

Does school start too early? I go Valencia High School, and our school starts at 8 a.m.

Remembering the Great Depression

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.

Professional arrogance is not a good quality

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."

Bear-ing up to the market

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.

Should we trust the Hart District?

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 no guarantees.

Tolerance

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.

Premiere for 'The Women' a ripoff

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.

Should’ve stuffed it in the mattress

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.

Jackson would give Dems majority in Senate

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 money they can take and giving them the ability to override a veto of the governor. While some things need to be streamlined, the ability ...

An Arctic tall tale brought to you by oil

A tall tale from Big Oil has been floating around the media recently. Big Oil's mission is to make destroying pristine wilderness sound reasonable. They tell us: "We're only going to drill in 2,000 acres of the Arctic Refuge. We swear!"

Free up taxpayers’ credit with new deduction

Perhaps a bit late, but I would like to suggest that Congress allow taxpayers to deduct up to $1,000 of credit card interest on their tax returns. Buck (McKeon), can you make that happen?

Elect a thinker like Obama, not an erratic

Let the smears begin. It certainly didn't take long for the McCain campaign to attempt to sling mud at Obama. Having Sarah Palin make a comment about his palling around with terrorists is just another desperate attempt to take the public's eyes off of McCain's erratic behavior during this time of economic crisis. We have been through this before. Obama was not close to Bill Ayers and has denounced his radical views and activities.

City, take a stand against petition blockers

I know there are quite a few people in the SCV who can remember back to the '40s, '50s and '60s during the big strikes that some of the big companies had - and how violent they were.

As the College of the Canyons Theatre Department performs "Rent" at the Performing Arts Center on May 9, 10, 11, 16, and 17, it puts the spotlight on Marfan syndrome, which is believed to have caused the death of "Rent" playwright Jonathan Larson at the age of 35.
