Cronyism apparently rife in local government

I am writing regarding the appointment of Frank Ferry's secretary to the parks commission.

Party or country?

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.

Budget affects Democrats and Republicans

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.

Emergency vehicles have the right-of-way

I am appalled at the stupidity of drivers on the road. The vehicle code requires that when an emergency vehicle comes upon your car with sirens and/or lights flashing, to PULL TO THE RIGHT!

Who died and made Bobb sheriff?

I honestly don't recall electing Merrick Bobb as sheriff. I pay more than $500 a month for my HMO health insurance plan and often have to wait weeks to see a doctor. That's only if I get authorization for my referral.

American beer should stay American

To all the shareholders of Anheuser-Busch who voted the wrong way the other day, I have a few words for you: Duh! What were you thinking?

USA can fall due to greed

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.

More praise for fracking

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.

Too Dark on Wiley Canyon Road

There's darkness in my neighborhood and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed. I don't understand it, but Wiley Canyon Road from Lyons Avenue to Old Orchard is dark, dark, dark. Except for light at intersection, the street is cloaked in black at night.
