As an adoring fan, I just had to say, "Welcome back, John Boston!"
I am so happy John Boston is back.
Regarding Karla Edwards' letter, "Isn't it ironic?" (Nov. 22), I agree!
It's always a blessing when Tim Myers writes a column for The Signal.
As I try to enjoy a barbecue in my backyard, I can't help but sense that a huge, monstrous obstruction is peering down at me.
The barricade that was erected at the intersection of Alaminos and Benz roads is another example of individuals who want the government to bail them out when they make poor decisions.
I am writing to voice my strong support of the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital master plan. As a member of the nursing leadership at the hospital, I've seen the results of a growing Santa Clarita Valley population and the limited resources and space at the community's only hospital.
I read your article about silent soccer games (Nov. 25) and would like to speak for those of us in favor of this move.
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.

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?

I don't know about you, but to me, reducing the threat of climate change would best be accomplished by having good flood control, stout construction, a reliable water supply and affordable energy - Not by following leaders who think we can reduce the threat of climate change by stopping the change.
With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American - even at work - dresses like a bum, no pride in one's attire at all. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.
Regarding "Unions protest Postal Service outlets at Staples," Jan. 20 Signal: Staples wants to sell stamps! Horrors!
How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?
While scanning the SCV Signal on Sunday morning, Jan. 19, on my computer I decided to click onto the Our Community section. I had exhausted my resources with LTEs, columnists, Signal editorials, business news,
Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.
This letter is in response to the letter of Nancy A. Meister ("Affordable Care Act: A success story," The Signal Jan. 17.)
