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.
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.
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.
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.
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 ...
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!"
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?
Congratulations to the city on its excellent traffic study for the future of Santa Clarita 20 and 30 years down the road.
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.
Well, the local Republicans seem to be up to their same old dirty tricks.
With both our state and national economy in crisis, it's always interesting to hear local candidates talk about their economic plans and visions. In the important race for the California 19th Senate seat, Democratic candidate Hannah-Beth Jackson has been totally unwilling to address this issue.
It has finally happened. Stevenson Ranch, in taking a cue from the fictional television show "Weeds," has now officially turned into Majestic, the religiously biased community bent on taking over what was the beautiful town of Agrestic.
The bailouts are tantamount to government takeovers of major U. S. industries. Obama and some senators are already planning corporate restructuring and deciding which executives should be fired and how much the remaining ones should be paid.
I am responding to the letter to the editor on Dec.8 from Cori Leffler regarding the American Beauty Classics Homeowners Board of Directors' decision on the squirrel poisoning.
I understand there is a new business opening up in Newhall. Can you ask Mr. Boston if there will be any openings?
Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.
