Mary Ann and I have lived in this valley for more than 40 years and in the last 10 years have relied heavily on Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital for our health services. It is not an overstatement that our hospital saved my life at least once and arguably twice.
The issue of the expansion of the Henry Mayo (Newhall Memorial) Hospital campus and its "master plan" will soon be presented for City Council approval. There are serious questions as to the impartiality of certain council members with regard to this action. I have always believed in the integrity of the individuals that are elected to represent the best interests of their constituents, but I recognize that often misinformation, misrepresentation and misguided values can also blind common sense.
Reading Steve Lunetta's Uncle Earl column ("Uncle Earl's view on the election," Nov. 20) summed up what is wrong with the Republican Party: a loss of ideals, finger-pointing, idle gossip, fear-mongering and a considerable state of denial.
We have been brainwashed by the automobile industry in telling us that we have to have bigger, faster and flashier cars.

One morning last week I read an article regarding a stabbing in Canyon Country.
Trying to obtain health insurance for a family is a joke! I recently quit my job with the county to take care of five teenagers and help my husband with his business.

With gratitude and thanksgiving we would like to acknowledge Councilwoman Laurie Ender, Sgt. Maxine Kallenberger, Deputy Keith Davis and the many other deputies who helped bring quality of life and peace back to our Valencia neighborhood.
The Signal has taken a huge step forward by including the Sunday columns of John Boston. The first column (Nov. 16) had to do with politics (and I am so over politics now, right or left) and I couldn't really enjoy it.
I would like to thank The Signal's editorial board for its editorial on Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's Master Plan (Nov. 23).
Regarding "Our View - Hospital Expansion" - Signal Editorial, Nov. 23: The Signal seems to have suffered from memory loss.

Veterans Day may already be over, but I think we should remember our veterans every day, not just Nov. 11.
Paul Sibek finally speaks out about churches ("Churches and politics," Letters, Nov. 20), as he perceives, being involved too much in the political process.
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.

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.)
I believe in Gary Morrison's passion, but not his facts ("Fiddling while climate change damages the Earth" Jan 12 Signal).
