Kudos to the City Council! I applaud you for appointing Matt Halliday to a seat on the Parks, Recreation & Community Services Commission.
California is in trouble. Our deficit is enormous. We need to solve the budget issue, and we need to do it now.
I recently spoke on the phone with the fraud section at Air Tran Airlines.
On Saturday, Aug. 16, at 11 a.m., at the Army recruiting station on Soledad Canyon Road, 11 (that's right - eleven) cars with U.S. government license plates were parked at the station.
Bush-bashing became major political convenience and the lazy man's pastime. Depending on which poll is cited, President Bush has an approval rating of 22 to 28 percent. Our Democrat-controlled Congress of nearly two years has an approval rating of 9 to 14 percent.
"I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree."
"New private school upsets neighbors," The Signal, August 22. Zoning laws dictate that multiple families cannot live in a single-family home, yet during the day neighbors in that Castaic neighborhood must endure 100 kids. Imagine what Back to School Night will look like.
A new Newhall Library in Old Town Newhall sounds a bit oxymoronic, but it sure is the best idea I've heard in years.
First, I would like to thank Frank Ferry and Phil Lantis of City Hall, Bill Bolde of Saugus High, and the Olive Garden restaurant for their donations to my son and The Global Medical Brigade.
Imagine my surprise when I opened the paper and saw an opinion piece from Frank Arenson blaming liberals for the fear-mongering that has been happening over the past eight years with the Bush Administration.
Just a note regarding Mr. Osbornes' column on JJ DiLuigi. It was nice to have Cary back, if only for one column.
The Londoner pub in Canyon Country is known for being a community-oriented business. We have raised money and awareness for many local charities, including the Santa Clarita Domestic Violence Center, Yes I Can, and the American Cancer Society.
I was struck by the contrast of the two facing columns appearing on the front of the Opinion section in the Aug. 17 Signal.
This letter is another in response to The Signal's article on July 25, headlined "Family grapples with loss of toddler."
After reading Betty Arenson's rant about Cindy McCain, I am beginning to wonder why it is that she doesn't have a column of her own.
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.
I'd like to applaud Sue Hartman's Jan. 10 column in The Signal ("Fracking for a prosperous California") regarding the benefits of fracking. And I'd like to add a couple of thoughts.
Political pundits have put Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton as the front runners for the next president. Let's compare how the two have handled themselves in the face of recent scandals.
