We want to read more marching band stories

We enjoyed the article on Nov. 2 about the Hart High-sponsored Rampage competition, but many readers would appreciate regular coverage of the marching season for all local school bands.

Stick with your stylists in economic hardship

I am disappointed to see the media, both print and television, recommending that in order to save money, get your hair done at a discount hair cuttery (like Super Cuts or Fantastic Sam's) or even a beauty school.

I'm skeptical of what Obama will do

Well, the die has been cast. And, unlike many Democrats who revelled at our current president's problems and, hence, our country's as well, I sincerely hope our new president has success.

It’s finally time to end affirmative action

Now that we as a nation have elected a black man to the highest office in the land, can we finally say good-bye to affirmative action policies? No longer can the color of one's skin be used as an excuse for personal shortcomings.

Community failed Jeremiah’s parents

I was deeply saddened by the on-campus suicide of 14-year old Jeremiah Lasater. My sadness quickly turned to anger when I read about the emotional torture this child endured in front of everybody on the campus of Vasquez High School. Shame on the school board officials, teachers, parents and yes, the students at Vasquez High who either created or acquiesced to the environment at school that Jeremiah had to endure.

Don’t build schools on dead end roads, please

Why are all of the schools in Castaic except Live Oak Elementary built at the top of dead-end roads? These seem to be the most wasteful possible. Very few students can ride a bike or walk to these campuses; they all have to be dropped off and picked up. That's two trips up and two trips down every school day, adding vehicle emissions and wear and tear.

Valencia Library is fine just as it is

I just read the letter in the Nov. 6 paper requesting that the Valencia Library be updated to make it friendlier, like a Barnes and Noble bookstore.

Race is no longer an issue in America

I have a problem with the media being so divisive, especially concerning race.

‘No on Prop. 8’ rally turns violent

Radical members of the "No on 8" campaign in California have quickly turned their disappointment over the reinstatement of traditional marriage into rabid hostility.

I'm amazed by liberal semantics

Interestingly, the lead article on Oct. 17 read "Baby killer gets 25 to life." Indeed, the mother was convicted of killing her baby shortly after birth and tossing the lifeless body into a trash bin.

Thanks, firefighters

I am writing about the fires we have seen throughout the Los Angeles area. The firefighters have done a terrific job of keeping the fire contained. We have a great fire department that reacts to any threat from fires very seriously. I can say that I feel safe with them doing their job.

Palin is wrong choice for vice president

John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin for the office of the vice president is disrespectful to the American people as well as the office itself.

Can’t America improve a bit?

In the Aug. 16 edition, Frank Arenson in a letter to the editor stated that Barack Obama told a 7-year-old girl he is running for President of the United States because "the country isn't very good."

Misleading real estate numbers

I am very disappointed by our local newspaper, The Signal, with regards to the article published today that reports the fact that local real estate sales are up 22 percent.

Doublespeak and fringe rhetoric

The "Drawing Conclusions" cartoon published in The Signal on March 18 is a perfect example of the doublespeak that comes so easily from the fringes of both left and right - and the stupidity of the voters who don't even bother to think about what they're hearing.

Tracking the elusive ‘jump head’

This may be trivial. I enjoy reading The Signal except for one thing - your style on "jump heads."

Sprinklers and corporate citizenship

Saturday at noontime, in the hottest time of day, we passed a large green stretch of land with sprinklers going full blast. I guess they couldn't wait till night.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Our Senior Center needs everyone’s help

At the City Council meeting I asked "What happened" most of the candidates have stated they have been on the Senior Boards for years. Yet it is outdated and underfunded.

Let’s keep the glitz and glamour here in California

Sunday night, March 2, I watched the 86th Oscars.

Putting a spin on the billboard debate

The Feb. 26 edition of The Signal published an article on the billboard proposal talks ("Billboard proposal talks draw hefty crowd to City Hall").

Campaign blight

During each City Council election cycle the citizens of Santa Clarita are subjected to a plethora of campaign blight on public property created by candidates who are asking for voters to entrust them to represent their interests in our beautiful community.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER:Vote for Mercado Fortine for City Council

On April 8, citizens of Santa Clarita will have the opportunity to elect GLORIA MERCADO FORTINE to our City Council. I have known Gloria and members of her family for more than 40 years. In my opinion, she is the exact type of person our City needs at this time!

Best candidates are those dedicated to seniors, veterans

Editor's note: The following letter was directed to Santa Clarita City Council candidates.

Conserving water

I was thinking: Why do we have to cut down on our water usage by 20 percent while the city tears up the center dividers and plants more trees, flowers and bushes?

When Seconds Count

A very heartfelt "thank you" to the 911 operators, firefighters, paramedics, ambulance staff and sheriff's deputies who responded to the call for help at my home the evening of Feb. 26.

Wilk goes against voter wants

I received correspondence from Scott Wilk recently saying why he didn't support SB 27, which requires nonprofit organizations to disclose the names, addresses and employers of donors of $1,000 or more when their funds are used to make contributions or expenditures of more than $50,000 in any one year, or more than $100,000 over four years.
