To The Editor: Although I live in the unincorporated county area of the valley and cannot cast my vote in the City of Santa Clarita elections, I believe that voting is an effective tool to effect change and have a voice. I urge all residents to take a few minutes out of their day to vote for their candidate of choice. I feel each of the candidates has strong traits, however, I'm compelled to express my personal involvement with Diane Trautman.
To The Editor: I'm voting for Laurie Ender for City Council because of her commitment to the future of the city of Santa Clarita and to improving our quality of life here.
To The Editor: Maria Gutzeit is my choice. She has demonstrated she can get things done. She made roads safer by working with the county to widen them.
To The Editor: I am excited that our valley has such a great choice for a new City Council member as we have in Maria Gutzeit.
To The Editor: I am writing to announce my support for Maria Gutzeit and Diane Trautman for City Council.

To The Editor: We are writing to express our most profound appreciation to our Mayor, Mr. Bob Kellar.
To The Editor: Beyond the fray of "hit" mailers and the illegally funded endorsements backed by big-developer money, there is a candidate who has quietly pressed on with the important issues that matter to all of us. That candidate is Diane Trautman.
To the Editor: Maria Gutzeit is one of the candidates running for City Council. This is an opportunity for the city to really help itself. I've watched her public career for the past five or so years and have to share what I've seen. Remember when the Newhall County Water District board meetings were reported by The Signal as notorious affairs with very little being accomplished? Maria was elected to the board and things changed. ...
I wholeheartedly endorse Diane for City Council. I have never met anyone who does the homework necessary to make important decisions like Diane. She reads background material and actually listens to perspectives of those who will be impacted by her decisions. Only then does she take a position, and actually follows through with actions necessary to support her decision. Currently a planning commissioner, she demonstrated her knowledge about the problems confronting this community during the ...
There are two openings on the City Council. It is time to fill Bob Kellar's opening with a qualified candidate such as Diane Trautman.
To The Editor: I met City Council candidate Laurie Ender 25 years ago at Pepperdine University. We were both freshmen, and Laurie was hanging up political posters for her run for student council. I'm pretty sure the first thing she said to me was, "May I count on your vote?" She did get my vote, and has been a close friend ever since. It is absolutely no surprise to me, or any of her college ...
I believe that abortion should be deemed illegal in all 50 states. Aborting an unborn child should be considered as murder. Murder is defined as; the crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought. What makes killing an unborn baby different from killing an adult? When does a fetus' life begin?
At last week's regular meeting, the Santa Clarita City Council voted unanimously to endorse the Soledad Canyon Settlement Act introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer. This legislation defines a process by which the sale of excess federal land near Victorville would be sold to compensate Cemex for sand and gravel mining rights in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Obama and his minions are mired up to their eyeballs in scandals, what with Benghazigate, the IRS targeting of conservative groups for harassment, and the Justice Departments secret grab of Associated Press phone records, not to mention the lingering Operation Fast & Furious debacle.
I urge all drivers to contact the California Transportation Commission www.catc.ca.gov (and any local representative) to voice their disapproval of Assembly Bill AB 680, which gives private entities the right to charge drivers to use the highways they are already paying to build and maintain.
Once we have removed the excess chloride from our wastewater, are we just going to give the water away to the farmers in Ventura?
Concerning Jim Holt's article on teens dying in the SCV ("Sand Canyon residents remember youth killed at oak tree 32 years ago," May 8), I can understand his concern.
I just finished reading Gary Horton's column on victimhood. If I didn't know better I'd swear he suddenly became a Republican. His comments were spot on. In this age of blame the other guy for your own lack of responsibility, it's good to see that someone else gets it. Good job, Gary.
Thanks for hosting the Summer Meltdown. This is so important to the Yes I Can program. I witnessed a special moment that I will never forget. One of the Yes I Can students was withdrawn and another student was holding her arm around her. One female teachers from the Yes I Can program went up to her and held her in her arms for a good couple of minutes (just the kindest hug) as to say it's OK. Then the girl and friend went on their way,
The Boston bombing brought to light a very clever way of carrying out covert operations in another country. Our own CIA can learn from the Tsarnaev brothers on how to conduct an operation and have that country finance it for them.
Remember when that man, Rick Perry, came to California to promote and emphasize "that HIS state of Texas doesn't bother with pesky regulations on industry.
Not two weeks after "our" 13-year-old gay teen, Nigel Hardy,committed suicide in Palmdale from being bullied as his school's male cheerleader, the president of the board of "our" Hart School District, Joe Messina, brought a known (adult) bully of gays, Brad Dacus, of the ironically named www.pacificjustice.org, as the keynote speaker at "our" city's Mayor's Prayer Breakfast at the Hyatt Regency Valencia. Even after the AV teen's death, Dacus called for parents not to attend ...
I always enjoy a good chuckle on a Sunday morning, and the letter by Richard Myers today allowed me a good one.
I recently read Brian Baker's April 24 letter "On logic, liberated thinking and gun control."
