To The Editor: Now that the City Council election is over, I sure hope that all those who ran will remove all of the signs they have placed on almost every street corner.
To The Editor: I use vote-by-mail. I got the information from my mailbox, read it all carefully and mailed the ballot back within a few days.
To The Editor: I was initially not amused by Pat Bagley's cartoon this morning (April 9, 2008) representing Charlton Heston as a gun-waving nut outside the gates of heaven. However, after ruminating on this for a bit I thought, well, actually, his NRA participation was presented by the media as defining the man in his later life.
To The Editor: I have been sitting on the sidelines looking and listening to all sides, and it came to me - Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the Pied Piper!
To The Editor: You can definitely put me on the side of the room that is against more unnecessary taxes - the key word being "unnecessary."
To The Editor: Thanks and goodbye to officer Tommy Banks. Yes, I got a ticket on Soledad. But you know what ... I was speeding and it reminded me to slow down.
To The Editor: Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies spent a lot of officers' time and taxpayers' money during a recent weekend to arrest just three drunk drivers out of 916 cars stopped and inconvenienced at a DUI checkpoint ("DUI checkpoint in Valencia nets 4 arrests," March 30, 2008). That is a meager .33 percent success rate.
To The Editor: Congratulations and best wishes to SCV sheriff's Deputy John Thomas Banks on his retirement.
To The Editor: I have been following the reports over the last few months and am incensed that none of the plans offered by the Hart School District have included cutting the fat at the top. Why has there been no proposal for cutting the six-figure salaries in order to save some programs and teachers' jobs? I have no children at home now, but I am still taxed for the schools and am happy to ...
To The Editor: I was appalled to see Barack Obama on television recently trying to use racism to his political advantage. He stated that the most segregated place in America is the churches. It is incredible that he would stoop so low in an attempt to gain a political advantage. Certainly, many years ago, his statement was true, but the fact that it is no longer true is something that Americans can and should ...
To The Editor: To the voters: How many of you will be voting for a candidate who puts their poster board ads on public property and/or public right-of-ways? So much for following the letter of the law. Then there's the littering factor.
To The Editor: Hilarious! We loved the April 1 front page of The Signal! Now please cancel our subscription. April fools! Rock on.
To The Editor: Hi! I am a third-grade student at Castaic Elementary School and read about the "plans" for the new Castaic Lake High School (in the April fool's edition of The Signal). It sounds really cool!! Are you planning to put in boat docks for the students? I hope so because I will want one! I guess I will tell my mom and dad to buy me a boat and not a car when ...
To The Editor: Thank you so much for the clever parody in the April 1 edition of The Signal.
To The Editor: What a pleasant surprise! Every morning of my life, the L.A. Times has been on my front doorstep or driveway. I will always read The Times. I have subscribed to The Signal for my entertainment (and some local news). The entertainment has gone out of the Signal. In previous years, you could tell that the staff at The Signal was having fun. I enjoyed the "Christmas Light Caravan" issues, the Phony Parade ...
A column by Kevin Bayona published earlier this month tells us we should not be ashamed of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I just wanted to belatedly thank the Santa Clarita City Council for continuing the great tradition of honoring our country and its soldiers by placing flags along Lyons Avenue.
I was pleased to see your coverage on the National Parks Service's recommendations on the National Recreation Area.
On Friday, April 12, schools in Valencia were closed. Why? They seem to be closed much too often.
I have been reading as well as watching news broadcasts about the many hikers who have been lost recently.
The gun control debate in Washington has turned into a sad Congressional joke but a great argument for term limits.
The Left is shocked - shocked! - that the Koch brothers use their own money to sway public opinion.
Climate scientists have recently concluded that man-made emissions are not significant enough to have a noticeable effect on the climate. When humans billow billions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, it doesn't change the climate.
In the current national debate over efforts to redefine the historic institution of marriage, some key concerns have hardly been mentioned.
Regarding The Signal's Letter to the Editor "Driving in Santa Clarita: Some rules of the road" (March 23, 2013):
Exclusionary arguments by gay marriage advocates (i.e., against polygamy, marrying relatives, marrying oneself, marrying underage, etc.) make the traditional marriage case for their opponents: i.e., that the social institution of marriage involves a lot more than simply "marry whomever you love."
Although I am not a churchgoer, I love reading the columns every Sunday titled "Ethically Speaking" by Grace Baptist Church Senior Pastor David Hegg. Indeed, his columns make me think and feel good about myself.
On March 3, The Signal published the editorial "Conference center: Don't give up yet." I was delighted to read this article and I think the words were needed to offset the idea that the cost of the land and construction would keep the conference center from being built.
The issue of homosexuality is deeply personal for many families. Such is the case for Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, who recently announced he has changed his mind on how marriage should be defined.
I read Mr Arenson's letter ("Jesus not a liberal Democrat," March 23, 2013), and agree with him completely. But there are some things that could be added, such as abortion.
