Tom Pedersen's letter to the editor and cartoon (Nov. 16) were right on the mark. The Signal's editorial is a misguided encouragement of a master plan that is based upon erroneous assumptions. Mr. Seaver's pronouncement "that it is now or never" is an outright scare tactic with no basis in fact.
We woke up on Nov. 15 and were shocked to see a front-page photo of young man skating at the skate park without a helmet.

I am writing in response to the letter written by Matthew Brayman and printed in the Sept. 16, 2008, edition of The Signal. Mr. Brayman asserts that Barack Obama's tax proposals will result in a $21,000 tax increase for a family making $75,000.
Jonathan Kraut's thoughtful column of Nov. 5 ("District vs. at-large voting") brings up an issue of how we elect our City Council. We really should consider it.

On Nov. 9, 1938, the Nazis began violent attacks on Jewish people and their properties, including the breaking of windows in Jewish synagogues and shops.

Jim Holt's account of a deadly collision between truck and bicycle on Oct. 30 ("Bicyclist Killed In SCV Collision") was outrageous in its indictment of the dead cyclist as having done everything wrong, essentially reporting that it was all the cyclist's fault.
Regarding "Halloween church event draws 13,000," The Signal Oct. 27: Real Life Church, which claims to "really care about the community," continues to infringe upon that same community - at least the neighborhoods that are immediately adjacent to it.
I would like to address the Newhall Roundabout. I am a 15 year old who resides in Valencia. I have lived here all my life. My mom has lived here her entire life and her parents still reside in the house she grew up in. My roots are pretty deep in this town.
