Gay marriage: It’s time to give up witch hunts

I'm a straight, married man who doesn't worry about what other folks are doing. A wise state legislator recently remarked that with the war on terrorism, the economy, the collapse of the housing market and the high price of gasoline, he had more important things to worry about than gays getting married. I concur.

What about the rest of Canyon Country?

Let me begin by saying that I used to attend the so-called "Canyon Country" Community Action Committee meetings. I stopped going because it seemed to several of us at these meetings that it was all about the Whites Canyon area, except when they wanted to complain about signage at shopping centers or a particular business.

Subregions deserve their share of funds

A Los Angeles Times editorial accused county Supervisor Gloria Molina of being "parochial" and an "obstructionist" because she advocates for protecting the regional distribution of revenue under the proposed sales tax measure.

State should have taken on Blue Cross

On July 4, I read an article in The Signal titled "State feared insurance big guns." In summary, the article stated that Anthem Blue Cross had the largest number of rescissions "about 1,770" between January 1, 2004, and now. Having read this article, I turned a bright shade of purple. There is nothing that can destroy a family faster than to have their health insurance cancelled. Although the article does not say, I assume these were most likely individual insurance policies and not group policies.

Will the real urban center please stand up?

There has been a lot of talk generated over the term "urban center" - did our city manager say he wants to turn our suburban bedroom community into a legitimate urban center of its own, or was he incorrectly paraphrased?

Urban centers should first do no harm

The first rule of "urban centers" should be a line from the Hippocratic Oath: "First of all, do no harm."

Strickland’s the best candidate for state senate

Hannah-Beth Jackson claims that she is running as a "representative of the people" and that Republicans have not represented the 19th Senate District well.

Let’s take control of the price of oil

I wonder what would happen if President Bush decided to sell a lot of the oil that he has in our reserves, say, for $75 per barrel. Just what would the buyers of futures in oil do? Maybe lose a lot of money?

Same-sex marriage ruling means fairness for all

In the past month I've read many opinions about why same-sex marriage threatens the institution of marriage. Frankly, I'm baffled.

A big "thank you" to the City of Santa Clarita for all the new street signs! They are easy to read, and look great with the city seal included in the design. Thank you for these helpful additions to city intersections.

Criticizing the critic — a message for deaf ears?

Vinton Lampton's assertion that only New Orleans residents and Democrats deplored Katrina ("God bless the tough Midwesterners," Letters, July 6) reveals that he is deaf to all but Republican indoctrination.

America needs to change its energy policy

I don't know about you, but to me, reducing the threat of climate change would best be accomplished by having good flood control, stout construction, a reliable water supply and affordable energy - Not by following leaders who think we can reduce the threat of climate change by stopping the change.

Average Americans dress like bums

With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American - even at work - dresses like a bum, no pride in one's attire at all. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.

Skateboarder behaviors

How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?

Promote self-sufficiency and strong marriages

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.
