Although I appreciated John Darkow's political cartoon offering in Monday's (July 28) Signal, his wording was hardly original.
The Santa Clarita Valley is a wonderful place to live. Unfortunately, the gas prices are high all over!
I'm just curious. Does anyone put any thought into the survival of the wildlife before they build what seems like a serene environment for the humans to enjoy?
I am writing in response to The Signal's recent editorial on Phil Gramm's comments on "whining."
The Santa Clarita Valley Rotary Club would like to publicly thank our mayor, Bob Kellar, for assisting us in one of our major community projects.
Is it just me, or does something seem just a little out of kilter in Santa Clarita?
As a member of the city of Santa Clarita's Newhall Library Committee, I concur with Marc Winger, fellow Newhall resident and superintendent of the Newhall School District (Letters to the Editor, July 23).
This letter is to thank the good people of Newhall for their kind treatment of a traveler in need.
The following is in response to your recent report "Council demands solution for Benz Road" (June 6).
This letter is in response to The Signal's article on July 25, headlined "Family grapples with loss of toddler."
Not very often are do we acknowledge heroes. Tracy McFarland is one in my book.
Just read a teeny, tiny, one-sentence announcement: Five Iraqi athletes have been banned from Olympics competition.
I e-mailed this letter to Senators Boxer and Feinstein. I also sent it to the Governor. The "political football" of drilling for oil wherever it is in the United States is a typical example of the cynicism of the left.
I am writing in response to The Signal's July 11 story "County Frets Over Foster Freeze." California's foster children did not create our state's budget crisis and should not carry the burden of the failings of their elders. Balancing the budget on the backs of abused and neglected children flies in the face of our commitment to provide quality care for our state's most vulnerable citizens.
I wanted to compliment The Signal on its general improvement. The-Signal.com is especially impressive.
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.
