Being a resident directly next door to the Smiser Mule Ranch parcel, it grieves me that the city would even consider this an eligible site for an "urban center." In other words, another shopping center.
I am writing regarding the appointment of Frank Ferry's secretary to the parks commission. The only information we have been given regarding her abilities and background in parks and recreation is that she has been Mr. Ferry's secretary for the past number of years and seems to be good at that job.
I am writing this letter to show support for the master-planned expansion project at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. I side with the overwhelming majority of community leaders who support this project.
What has happened to our government? If I remember correctly, we are supposed to be for and by the people, not for the person who can raise the most money and make empty promises.
I am writing to comment on Stephen Winkler's July 3 submission entitled "Budget Cuts" and the subsequent online response from a reader who dismissed Mr. Winkler's assessment that budget cuts are not a partisan or ideological issue because they impact all Californians, including our seniors and children.

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.
