In what alternative universe does Stephen Winkler reside ("Think before you vote," Letters, April 24)? Hillary Clinton is the Democratic party candidate and John McCain is a liberal Republican?
To The Editor: I've been enjoying The Signal's Web site. Really terrific. Sharon Cotal recently wrote an article about our school ("Christian high schools offer options," April 14, 2008), and it was fun to see it not only on the front page but also up on the Web site.
After 24 years, I am amazed, sad and disgusted about the changes that have been going on with The Signal over the last several months. Where is The Signal, our local paper? Instead of a paper whose articles should be about what's happening in the SCV, I get a mess of here, there and everywhere. I will be changing papers when my subscription expires.
To The Editor: That was a great piece on Melody Ranch ("Down on Main Street at Melody Ranch," "A Closer Look," April 20, 2008 by Stephen K. Peeples, Signal Online Editor). I always learn something new about that place.
To The Editor: I am writing to express my disappointment in the recycling system that is in effect this year. We have
To The Editor: America is fortunate that both the Democratic and Republican candidates are extremely qualified for the
Recently two local Republicans announced they would be writing commentaries for The Signal in addition to Monday's "Right Her Right Now." These two men, Steve Lunetta and Paul Strickland, have different styles but both write excellent commentaries. The news of their more frequent submissions is gratifying on a couple of fronts. One, The Signal is pretty much dominated by the left six days out of seven (nationally and locally) and two, Messrs. Lunetta and Strickland ...
To The Editor: It is fair to say that I was extremely disappointed in the results of the recent local election to fill two empty seats on the Santa Clarita City Council.
To The Editor: Once Maria Gutzeit was endorsed by liberal Gary Horton, she never had a chance to win.
To The Editor: I couldn't agree more with Dave McEachern (April 15). We can do more for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. Indeed, we should have no tolerance for bullying and name-calling.
To The Editor: It's truly sad that columnists like Mr. Lunetta perpetuate false arguments on subjects as important as national security.
To The Editor: I am reminded on a daily basis what an amazing place Santa Clarita is to live and raise a family. Every time I drive by a local, award-winning school, every time I shop at the ever-improving mall or eat at an excellent restaurant, and every time I meet a new, friendly community member, I am reminded that Santa Clarita is the most amazing place around! Today was a day that, more than ...
To The Editor: Now that the City Council election is over, I sure hope that all those who ran will remove all of the signs they have placed on almost every street corner.
To The Editor: I use vote-by-mail. I got the information from my mailbox, read it all carefully and mailed the ballot back within a few days.
To The Editor: I was initially not amused by Pat Bagley's cartoon this morning (April 9, 2008) representing Charlton Heston as a gun-waving nut outside the gates of heaven. However, after ruminating on this for a bit I thought, well, actually, his NRA participation was presented by the media as defining the man in his later life.
Kevin Buck believes "Jesus would be a liberal Democrat".
With a heavy heart I am compelled to write this letter to the editor on the anniversary date of the Iraqi War.
Yes, many cars in Europe of the same make and model have higher mpg ratings than their U.S. counterparts. The U.S. and Euro testing standards differ, as do the tuning specifications (such as fuel/air and ignition timing, computer mapping).
In my humble opinion, the only way the U.S. Postal Service will survive is to STOP service one day a week. The question we all should be asking is not whether to stop service one day a week, but which day of the week.
I would like to respond to Kevin Buck's column "Jesus Would Be a Liberal Democrat" (March 20, 2013).
Can anyone explain to me why it takes a minimum of five sheriff's deputies to greet Lindsay Lohan at curbside and escort her to the courtroom?
Charlie Vignola takes a page from Stephanie Cutter's playbook in blaming Republicans for the bad health and eventual deaths of his parents.
Editor's note: On March 19, The Signal published a story about a woman whose wallet was stolen by someone hiding beneath the racks of a clothing store while another person distracted the victim. Following is an edited version of readers' postings on the online version of the story.
In response to the column "Jesus would be a liberal Democrat" (March 19), it's always easy to use, or misuse, Jesus to make a political point, although good taste dictates against it.
In Mr. Patton's piece "Red states should be careful what they wish for" (March 22), his conservative critique of liberalism is as fact-free and unsupported as nearly all conservative points seem to be today.
After a great many conversations and debates about gun control, there are still a great many members of Congress bowing to the NRA lobby because they want to protect their political futures more than they want to protect us against gun violence.
While driving in Santa Clarita I have noticed some techniques that appear to be unique to the culture here.
I used to live in Santa Clarita. I moved to the Bay Area about nine years ago but still check in on The Signal occasionally.
