Hope and change are the buzz words of 2008. Obama's presidency will ultimately be judged on its effectiveness at producing positive results. In the same way the City Council and G&L Realty's hospital expansion plan will be judged.
The current proposal to expand Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital does not make sense. The City Council should do all in its power to modify it until it does.
Sarah Palin - reason enough!
Surely voters are tired of elected representatives who lie to them, waste taxpayer money and don't take care of business.
I am writing in response to Pam Ross's letter regarding the City Council's meeting about the diverter at Benz Road.
Within the last two weeks, the self-proclaimed maverick Sarah Palin has managed to stir her supporters into a frenzy of paranoia and intolerance reminiscent of the McCarthy era.
Sarah Palin purports to be a "Joe Six-Pack" kind of person who understands the "average" American citizen.
Voting "no" on Measure SA is the sensible thing to do.
I listened to (Wednesday's presidential debate) between innings of the baseball game. The Dems said they won; the Republicans said they won.
Business students at West Ranch High School have been taking their assignment seriously.
With their registrations sinking and their political clout withering, California Republicans have come out of the November election in danger of slipping into political irrelevance across much of the state.
Now that we're past an election in which most Republican and Democratic candidates ran on platforms that promised switching to renewable energy, I feel it is time for those politicians and the communities they serve, as well as the city of Santa Clarita, to begin the work of transformation.
Regarding the incident involving the pit bull at Valencia High School, I don't know any of the parties involved (including the dog).
I'm writing to voice my opposition to Proposition 8, which would take away the right of same-sex couples to marry. I'm not gay, but I believe the law should treat people equally.
Sorry, Angels fans. They had a great year, but until the manager goes into the archives and pulls out the films and shows them to his team, they will never be hitters.
In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."
Last week the House of Representatives passed the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 4138), a simple measure by Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that would enable members of Congress to sue the Executive Branch in federal court when it disregards or flagrantly violates the U.S. Constitution.
Now that the saga of Flight 370 is coming to a close, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.
Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.
The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.
I have the time for Councilman TimBen Boydston to research and present the facts in a transparent manner when a 50-year lighted billboard contract is at stake.
Regarding the Sunday, March 16, Signal story "Abandoned Flag Flies Anew": I salute you, Patrick McGill. Being a vet, I truly appreciate someone who shows their patriotism toward our nation's symbol.
The "Drawing Conclusions" cartoon published in The Signal on March 18 is a perfect example of the doublespeak that comes so easily from the fringes of both left and right - and the stupidity of the voters who don't even bother to think about what they're hearing.
This may be trivial. I enjoy reading The Signal except for one thing - your style on "jump heads."
Saturday at noontime, in the hottest time of day, we passed a large green stretch of land with sprinklers going full blast. I guess they couldn't wait till night.
At the City Council meeting I asked "What happened" most of the candidates have stated they have been on the Senior Boards for years. Yet it is outdated and underfunded.
Sunday night, March 2, I watched the 86th Oscars.
The Feb. 26 edition of The Signal published an article on the billboard proposal talks ("Billboard proposal talks draw hefty crowd to City Hall").
During each City Council election cycle the citizens of Santa Clarita are subjected to a plethora of campaign blight on public property created by candidates who are asking for voters to entrust them to represent their interests in our beautiful community.
Is there any mainstream religion that does not forbid homosexuality?
