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.
To The Editor: I have been sitting on the sidelines looking and listening to all sides, and it came to me - Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the Pied Piper!
To The Editor: You can definitely put me on the side of the room that is against more unnecessary taxes - the key word being "unnecessary."
In the past few weeks The Signal has printed two front-page articles that, when considered together, reveal some interesting things about our City Council.
Those on the left, center, and right all think they know best - in fact, that may be the only thing they do agree upon.
Lots of people are familiar with the reality TV show "Say Yes to the Dress," in which a bride to be allows an entourage to help pick out her wedding dress.
Regarding "Council votes down bag ban," Sept. 12, The Signal article contains the statement "Some council members spoke in favor of banning plastic bags but bristled at the implication that customers would be required to pay five or 10 cents a bag for the paper counterparts."
There can be only one memorialized statue at the entrance to Newhall: William S. Hart, the cowboy, actor, rancher and humanitarian who made the community and contributed his legacy for all to enjoy forever.
Health care definitely needs reform, but Obamacare, the so-called Affordable Care Act, is a travesty - as evidenced by the AFL-CIO now asking to be exempted.
Gary Horton's (no relation) column about war is very revealing in that it delves into the short-sightedness of liberal thinking.
I cannot believe that some people actually think that same-sex marriages ought not to exist. That is just plain brutal.
The student government at UCLA recently resolved to ban the term "illegal immigrant" because they consider it "racially derogatory language" which has led to "racial profiling practices, punitive policies targeting socially marginalized groups, hate crimes and violence."
In his letter to the editor in the Aug. 29 edition of The Signal, Brian Springer credits "The Butler" movie as truthful. It is not.
I am noted for my exclamation marks in ending a sentence when I submit a letter to the editor to the SCV Signal, which seems to annoy some posters.
