Measure SA is worth your five dollars

I support Measure SA and would like to see Sierra Vista Junior High School updated.

Criticizing Obama doesn't make me racist

Why is it that any criticism of Sen. Obama and his associations with terrorists and racists, and his lack of experience always elicits cries of racism from the Democrat camp, including the mainstream media?

Amazed at response to menorah article

I am writing in response the Dec. 11 article "Kosher." In response to the incredible events that have occurred regarding the Stevenson Ranch Homeowners Association menorah, I am personally amazed at the HOA's handling of this issue.

Obama and the Governor of Illinois

I hope the flaming liberals are still happy with the new president-elect. Not too many in this valley, though - flaming liberals, that is.

I doth protest the hospital plans

Dr. Barstis of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, could you please tell me where you live so that I can locate a small community hospital in your neighborhood, buy it, pay off the local planning officials to throw out the existing master plan for your neighborhood, and proceed to build another UCLA mega-medical center on your block?

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 all-consuming fire

Gary Horton's June 4 column "Embracing a fire that still burns us today" is his most articulate column yet, and is so right on!

Compulsion is not compassion

The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn't work in meeting certain essential societal needs.

Let’s hear it for government climate intervention

It was just so exciting to read how the White House and EPA will save the planet despite those nasty and ridiculous global warming and climate change deniers.

Bergdahl and Obama deserve the same cell

Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.

The best for others, in 2 flavors

Let's stipulate that both sides of the political spectrum want the best for others (a fair assumption, especially since both sides insist that is so).

A salute to Maya Angelou

Perhaps the most difficult task to make a financial living at is that of being a poet. Yet, if one is great enough and has a measure of luck - like Maya Angelou - it is not impossible.

Concerning our local charter schools

I read with interest the article in the May 26 issue of The Signal ("Pavley's bill would change charter school law") about the bill introduced by California Sen. Fran Pavley regarding charter schools.

Violence in America

Historically we are a violent people and mankind's history throughout the world demonstrates that we are violent. Laws passed protect us all from violence. But laws alone can't eliminate violence.

Look at Switzerland

In Charlie Vignola's column ("Sensible about gun control," May 20) Vignola is basically making the intellectually flaccid argument that guns cause their own misuse.
