Congratulations to the Canyon High School JV football team for winning the Foothill League championship with a perfect undefeated league record of 5-0 and an overall record of eight wins and two losses.
At first, I was outraged that I should have to shut my trap at my child's soccer game. Indignant, I wondered "what's next?"
Regarding the front-page story entitled "School bond hits a roadblock," I have a few questions.
My wife and I moved from Burbank to the Hasley Canyon area five years ago. We had horses in our backyard in Burbank, Griffith Park with its equestrian trails and some deer and coyotes.
The tragedy (student suicide) at Vasquez High School filled me with sadness and anger. Anger because we don't simply have to watch as kids are brutalized day after day.
The following is a copy of a letter sent to Ken Pulskamp, Santa Clarita city manager:|
Santa Clarita is well-known for its fires. We have the Santa Ana winds that make the canyons and passes a big risk.
The mainstream media's slant on Gov. Sarah Palin is worse than shameful. The lady showed up for a job and was immediately debased and vulgarized beyond belief.
Churches are more involved in politics every election. It seems that a line continues to be crossed in the separation of church and state, much more so in the battle of Proposition 8.
Tom Pedersen's letter to the editor and cartoon (Nov. 16) were right on the mark. The Signal's editorial is a misguided encouragement of a master plan that is based upon erroneous assumptions. Mr. Seaver's pronouncement "that it is now or never" is an outright scare tactic with no basis in fact.
We woke up on Nov. 15 and were shocked to see a front-page photo of young man skating at the skate park without a helmet.
Regarding Proposition 8 and the lawsuits, if the minority is allowed to overrule the majority, then I want to start a "impeach Obama" campaign today.
I do not wish to take much of your time other than to inform you of the consequences if Proposition 8 fails.
I have noticed over the past couple of months spotlight articles of the West Ranch Marching Band and Color Guard.
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).
I am one of those folks who signed up for the Affordable Care Act. It was my first time on the open health care market, since I always had health care provided from employment, either mine or my spouse's.
Regarding The Signal's Jan. 6 front-page article, "Burglaries on the rise in SCV this past year," I would like to point out that all is not necessarily as it appears.
I honestly don't believe that Democrats and Republicans will ever sit down and compromise on anything. The simple act of governing for all of the people seems to be impossible.
