Scrutinize Obama, not the plumber

I read the story that "Joe the Plumber" is not actually a licensed plumber. This guy asked a simple question and now he is being attacked.

Tim Myers is too offensive

As an independent still trying to decide, I try to read as many opinions as time allows.

Who's the racist in this argument?

Tim Myer's column (Oct. 19) would be positively breathtaking if it weren't so laughably predictable.

Anti-virus, Take 2

As a counterpoint to Joe Messina's answers to questions regarding anti-virus and e-mail, unfortunately Joe is recommending products he also sells and services.

In the rank of eagles

On Saturday, Oct. 4, three local Boy Scouts, Jonathan Sprott, John Kasum and Benjamin Kasum were elevated to the rank of Eagle, becoming part of an elite group that has produced many great leaders.

Government charity starts at home

As we grow older, none of us can be certain we won't find ourselves at some point needing assistance to help us pay the rent, mortgage, utility bill, medical bill or some other bills that come up. Senior members among us are struggling to do just these things. Many are on fixed incomes. Others simply don't have the means to meet the basic needs.

Prop. 8 opponents intolerant?

For the second night in a row, our "Yes On Prop. 8" yard signs have been stolen from our front yard. I find it very hypocritical that the liberal groups that support gay marriage call people who vote for traditional family values "intolerant," when they themselves don't allow for free speech when it disagrees with their views.

Prop. 8 opponents oppose free speech

Wow! So this is where we are in our society? Last night my "Yes on 8" yard sign was stolen from my front yard. This doesn't surprise me, however, given the type of people that would not support Prop. 8. If Prop. 8 is defeated, then this is just a glimpse of the suppression of free speech to come. You can be sure that B. Hussein Obama and the rest of the "Dims" will try to further suppress the voice of those who stand for traditional values. To all the Christians out there, it's time to stop being ...

Save money with Measure S

When you vote, remember one of the most important local votes, Measure S. This will mandate removal of the "old-style" water softeners and will help homeowners and businesses avoid huge costs. Only about 10 percent of homes have not taken the rebates and keep the old softeners. Yet unless we remove these chloride pollution sources, we could be forced to install a "brine line" to the ocean. That is estimated to cost every home $500 more and an average business $2,000 more on the sewer portion of the property tax bills. This fee would be annual, and would apply ...

Marching bands

The indomitable Mr. Boston had me laughing out loud at the breakfast table. He must feel the same way about walking music the same way I feel about soccer and still you ruin half a sport page filling it up with that junk.

Choir performance

I had the pleasure recently of attending the Saugus High School choir concert. It was the winter performance, and what a performance!

City Council flip-flopped on Benz Road

In response to the Letter to the Editor titled "Kudos to the council" (Oct. 17, 2008): Sure. Kudos to the council for flip-flopping all over the place with the Benz neighborhood traffic problem.

Pit bulls are not people

I wasn't going to write, but the inane follow-up comments on the pit bull situation at Valencia High School have caused me to write.

Build the school, already

I think it is about time that the Hart district governing board is finally planning on selecting a site for Castaic high school.

Boston’s message

John Boston's Dec. 7, 2008, column "On Dirt Clods and an Acton Bullet" is not just interesting, entertaining and creative, but important and poignant.

Time to withdraw the troops

I believe that we need to withdraw troops in Iraq now. It is a mistake for any troops to be there, and they are there in great peril.

Tell the truth, Ms. Dupuy

Against all billboards

First of all, I am absolutely against all of the billboards in the Santa Clarita Valley - including the ones along the Metro right-of-way. I am also against the digital sign boards along the freeways.

Hooray for concerned U.S. citizens like Brian Baker

Brian Baker's column published in The Signal June 30 ("The IRS is far from earning back our trust") is spot on!

Many more bike trails in the works for Santa Clarita

A recent letter writer complimented Santa Clarita's trail system and inquired as to whether the city will be adding more trails, specifically near the Newhall Ranch Road underpass.

An open letter to motorists of the Santa Clarita Valley

Speeding, cellphone calling, texting, tail-gating arrogance, complete disregard for the other motorist and other numerous unsafe practices while driving that cause accidents - these have been my contention in many letters to the editor that I have submitted to The Signal.

Let’s not expand our need for water during drought times

The city of Santa Clarita's response to my letter (June 23, "When will the city water medians responsibly?") regarding watering, the saving of water and new landscaping was full of details.

Don’t get scammed

Correction: The following letter to the editor is being repeated because the wrong name of the writer was printed at the bottom of the letter when it was originally published on Wednesday. Albert Bigelow did not write this letter. The correct letter writer's name appears today.

Those WMDs surface in Iraq

Did anyone else note the TV newscast showing insurgents in Iraq opening the old bunker?

How can Steve Lunetta sleep at night?

There's nothing wrong with Mr. Lunetta questioning and challenging the assertions of the REMI report that a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have positive economic benefits as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (June 26, "The carbon tax has flaws").

SCV bike trails best in the West

I want to give big kudos to the Santa Clarita City Council past and present, the city manager and everyone involved in making the city bike/walking/running trails the fantastic network they are today.

Shane Vereen provides example for all youth

It's nice to see a positive article on the front page of The Signal about Shane Vereen ("Vereen brings it back," June 22).

A little respect, please

Once again, Councilman Bob Kellar slams his constituents by saying that many who signed the petitions to overturn the council's decision to permit digital billboard on our freeways were not fully aware of the full details of the proposal ("Billboard matter will be put to a vote," www.signalscv.com).
