What if you walked into a store to purchase something and you saw a sign over the item you want that read, "This item is marked UP 18 percent or 20 percent or 28 percent or more"?
One morning last week I read an article regarding a stabbing in Canyon Country.
Trying to obtain health insurance for a family is a joke! I recently quit my job with the county to take care of five teenagers and help my husband with his business.
Now that Proposition 2 has passed and will help lessen the suffering of millions of chickens, pigs and calves, my thoughts are on turkeys.
With gratitude and thanksgiving we would like to acknowledge Councilwoman Laurie Ender, Sgt. Maxine Kallenberger, Deputy Keith Davis and the many other deputies who helped bring quality of life and peace back to our Valencia neighborhood.
The Signal has taken a huge step forward by including the Sunday columns of John Boston. The first column (Nov. 16) had to do with politics (and I am so over politics now, right or left) and I couldn't really enjoy it.
I would like to thank The Signal's editorial board for its editorial on Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's Master Plan (Nov. 23).
Regarding "Our View - Hospital Expansion" - Signal Editorial, Nov. 23: The Signal seems to have suffered from memory loss.
The purpose of this letter is to address false and misleading statements made in the August Signal Special Supplement Sa+nta Clarita's 51 Most Influential 2008.
Veterans Day may already be over, but I think we should remember our veterans every day, not just Nov. 11.
Paul Sibek finally speaks out about churches ("Churches and politics," Letters, Nov. 20), as he perceives, being involved too much in the political process.
I have read the editorials on yes versus no on Proposition 8 because marriage can only be defined by the creator of marriage - God. I voted yes on 8 because God said that marriage is between a man and a woman.
Poor Gary, poor Gary (Horton, "Free at Last! At least for the majority," Local Opinion, Nov. 12).
Congress authorizes $700 billion to save the mortgage meltdown but no one has a clue how to apply the funds.
Republican animosity to government regulation is long-standing. And yes, they emphasize property rights over notions of the commons and have often been comfortable sacrificing wildlife, air, and water quality in the pursuit of profits.
I just wanted to point out the need to overturn the Citizens United decision of the United States Supreme Court in 2010.
On the rare occasion I see a sheriff's car in the area and can access the deputy, I thank them for their service and for driving my street, West Del Monte Drive.
During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.
Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.
I read in The Signal where George H. W. Bush, father of the infamous George W. Bush, "celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday by making a tandem parachute jump."
In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.
I appreciate Jim Holt's presence at the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees meeting last Wednesday and his subsequent article, "COC showdown" (June 12).
Regarding the controversial release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, below are some of the responses of President Obama to this issue:
The latest assignment some sixth-grade students got in one of our local schools is "Atrocities committed by our troops in Vietnam."
The best description I have heard of the recent fiasco of trading prisoners is that we have exchanged five hand grenades for a squirt gun.
Daniel Wani, an American citizen living in New Hampshire, was not able to celebrate Father's Day with his wife and two tiny American children.
Jim Holt's June 10 article "COC faculty rejects contract" attempted to offer a fair view of the dissension that has developed between college administrators and the full-time faculty.
For many years, Lois Eisenberg has written awesome letters to the editor for The Signal. She combines great thinking and great writing in her letters to the editor.
In his column today (June 10) entitled "Charlie Vignola: G.O.P. smears P.O.W.", Vignola launches into his usual anti-conservative anti-GOP invective, this time over the Bergdahl affair. It's just more of Vignola's signature ranting.
Even during the original ratifications, implementation of procedures and policies in our government faced changes to the Constitution (or Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781).
