I am very disappointed by our local newspaper, The Signal, with regards to the article published today that reports the fact that local real estate sales are up 22 percent.
Hands free? Not in SCV. Driving around town, running errands the past few weeks, you would never know the hands-free cell phone law went into effect. I see at least 10 people on every trip around town blatantly holding their cell phones up to their ears. You can tell when you get behind or near someone holding a phone to their ear. They are tapping their brakes, weaving a little in their lanes and not ...
Can any financial institution make loans or ridiculous offers without a willing purchaser? Second question: Would you invest in a financial institution that showed poor profitability or one that was booming and was very profitable?
I think that the Valencia Public Library should be redone. The library is a great place to get books, especially in the bad economic times we are having.
It's been a historic time at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. For the first time since the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law was implemented in 1993, a major political party adopted a platform that calls for the replacement of the law with a non-discrimination policy. This accomplishment has largely gone unnoticed during the convention excitement, but it is a moment too important to be ignored. The Democratic National Committee knows what we know: that ...
Democratic voice Cal Planakis predictably attempts to hide the real reason for California's current $15 billion deficit by blaming it on Proposition 13. The bright lights of actual budget numbers reveal the real culprits.
Regarding Obama's speech at the consummation of the DNC, one commentator stated, "Vote for him or don't, but thank God that the United States of America can produce great speakers who can deliver great speeches."
On July 15, I asked the city Planning Commission how the proposed new general plan being developed under the "One Valley, One Vision" will meet the city's existing park space requirement, which is five acres per 1,000 residents per the city of Santa Clarita General Plan dated 06/25/91.
Would it have been too much trouble for Signal staff writer Brian Charles to contact Dr. Marc Winger of the Newhall School District to be able to present a balanced article regarding the "Gay couple living American dream" as reported in the Oct. 30 article?
I am agreeing with Harry Gratz with his letter to the editor concerning our government charity.
Everybody agrees we need more hospital facilities in the Santa Clarita Valley but not everyone supports the present proposal.
I think it is about time that the Hart district governing board is finally planning on selecting a site for a Castaic high school.
In response to the article by Brian Charles "Prop. 8 debate fuels protests" (Oct. 28): I am toally disgusted by the apparent use of "yellow journalism" by The Signal.
In Tim Myers' commentary today, he refers to Laurie Ender running a "true grassroots campaign."
Dear ladies and gentlemen concerned over the imminent start-up of the Monticello Preparatory School in Hasley Canyon:
In the past few weeks The Signal has printed two front-page articles that, when considered together, reveal some interesting things about our City Council.
Those on the left, center, and right all think they know best - in fact, that may be the only thing they do agree upon.
Lots of people are familiar with the reality TV show "Say Yes to the Dress," in which a bride to be allows an entourage to help pick out her wedding dress.
Regarding "Council votes down bag ban," Sept. 12, The Signal article contains the statement "Some council members spoke in favor of banning plastic bags but bristled at the implication that customers would be required to pay five or 10 cents a bag for the paper counterparts."
There can be only one memorialized statue at the entrance to Newhall: William S. Hart, the cowboy, actor, rancher and humanitarian who made the community and contributed his legacy for all to enjoy forever.
Health care definitely needs reform, but Obamacare, the so-called Affordable Care Act, is a travesty - as evidenced by the AFL-CIO now asking to be exempted.
Gary Horton's (no relation) column about war is very revealing in that it delves into the short-sightedness of liberal thinking.
I cannot believe that some people actually think that same-sex marriages ought not to exist. That is just plain brutal.
The student government at UCLA recently resolved to ban the term "illegal immigrant" because they consider it "racially derogatory language" which has led to "racial profiling practices, punitive policies targeting socially marginalized groups, hate crimes and violence."
In his letter to the editor in the Aug. 29 edition of The Signal, Brian Springer credits "The Butler" movie as truthful. It is not.
I am noted for my exclamation marks in ending a sentence when I submit a letter to the editor to the SCV Signal, which seems to annoy some posters.
