City manager responds to development issues

Growth and development have long been major issues for residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. In fact, these issues are key reasons why residents chose to incorporate in the 1980s. Cityhood in 1987 brought local home rule to the four communities of Saugus, Newhall, Valencia and Canyon Country. It enabled the new local government to retain millions every year in tax dollars, 100 percent of which are spent right here in Santa Clarita on roads, parks, transportation, law enforcement, community services, infrastructure, trails and other amenities residents have expressed a desire to bring to our community.

Kopp should apologize to Tick Canyon residents

Gail Kopp owes me and the thousands of other residents of Tick Canyon an apology for referring to our community as "a dump" ("Park Place to be built in Tick Canyon," June 6, 2008). I assure you I have no discarded tires on my block.

Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day. They are looking forward to the day their wife retires so they can "get out of Dodge," and possibly buy a few acres of land so they can grow their own food and have a windmill which generates power to pump their own water and supply the electrical needs.

Forget Friday, bring back the Sunday TV guide

The Signal has always had the BEST TV guide weekly, and it was in the Sunday edition.

For some reason, you changed it to Friday, and it stinks. Friday to Friday.

Planning for growth

Upon reading The Signal's recent article declaring city planners expect SCV's growth to expand to 500,000 people, I first thought, "Wow! How could our traffic infrastructure possibly handle that?"

Why not on Page 1?

I have a question which I think others in the Santa Clarita Valley may have regarding the "Newhall land files for bankruptcy" story on Page 3 of The Signal's print edition (June 9, 2008).

Building industry leads in water quality technology

Much has been made of the defeat of Assembly Bill 2046, which included a provision precluding water suppliers from relying on groundwater that did not meet applicable state standards when assessing their water supply.

Show no pity for those who gambled and lost

Why do we not hear about all of those who were speculators who purchased homes with the purpose of turning them around in two years to make a huge profit?

Kudos for preserving wilderness

As a long time resident of Santa Clarita, I was pleased to see that 13,700 acres of our local Magic Mountain and seven miles of wild and scenic Piru Creek were included in Congressman Buck McKeon's and Senator Barbara Boxer's wonderful bipartisan wilderness bill for the Eastern Sierra and Northern San Gabriel Mountains ("McKeon bill protects 42,000 acres," May 30, 2008).

Not that I wasn't also excited that this bill will protect more than 430,000 acres of pristine mountain ranges and ancient forests in the Eastern Sierra, as well as the Owens River Headwaters ...

United States must end reliance on gasoline

Lynne Plambeck, Tom Purcell and Buck McKeon have all sounded off about the rising cost of gasoline.

I've been studying this problem for many years, since it is obvious that oil is a finite resource. It's not going to last forever.

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.
