"New private school upsets neighbors," The Signal, August 22. Zoning laws dictate that multiple families cannot live in a single-family home, yet during the day neighbors in that Castaic neighborhood must endure 100 kids. Imagine what Back to School Night will look like.
A new Newhall Library in Old Town Newhall sounds a bit oxymoronic, but it sure is the best idea I've heard in years.
First, I would like to thank Frank Ferry and Phil Lantis of City Hall, Bill Bolde of Saugus High, and the Olive Garden restaurant for their donations to my son and The Global Medical Brigade.
Imagine my surprise when I opened the paper and saw an opinion piece from Frank Arenson blaming liberals for the fear-mongering that has been happening over the past eight years with the Bush Administration.
Just a note regarding Mr. Osbornes' column on JJ DiLuigi. It was nice to have Cary back, if only for one column.
The Londoner pub in Canyon Country is known for being a community-oriented business. We have raised money and awareness for many local charities, including the Santa Clarita Domestic Violence Center, Yes I Can, and the American Cancer Society.
I was struck by the contrast of the two facing columns appearing on the front of the Opinion section in the Aug. 17 Signal.
This letter is another in response to The Signal's article on July 25, headlined "Family grapples with loss of toddler."
After reading Betty Arenson's rant about Cindy McCain, I am beginning to wonder why it is that she doesn't have a column of her own.
The SCV Committee on Aging Corporation Board of Directors is pleased to add its support to the proposed new library slated for the downtown Newhall area.
Regarding the recentater main break in Valencia, I am curious to know what - if any - measures were taken to filter the water of chloramine before the water reached the storm drains, as this particular break was near the Santa Clara River.
What an absolute fool! When Bush first met Putin he said, "I looked the man in the eye. I was able to get a sense of his soul."
In 2001, Santa Clarita Valley residents approved Measure V, a $158 million bond to fund facility modernization projects, improve classrooms and build new schools, including the construction of a Castaic high school.
After reading Tim Myers' article about G&L Realty's contribution to Laura Ender's campaign, I could only wonder about his motivation for writing such a biased opinion. He talks about assuming facts not in evidence but never mentions any of the facts that are in evidence.
Network TV likes sex! Just not within marriage.
Wikipedia says, "A square dance is a dance for four couples (eight dancers) arranged in a square, with one couple on each side, facing the middle of the square."
I don't know about you, but to me, reducing the threat of climate change would best be accomplished by having good flood control, stout construction, a reliable water supply and affordable energy - Not by following leaders who think we can reduce the threat of climate change by stopping the change.
With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American - even at work - dresses like a bum, no pride in one's attire at all. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.
Regarding "Unions protest Postal Service outlets at Staples," Jan. 20 Signal: Staples wants to sell stamps! Horrors!
How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?
While scanning the SCV Signal on Sunday morning, Jan. 19, on my computer I decided to click onto the Our Community section. I had exhausted my resources with LTEs, columnists, Signal editorials, business news,
Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.
This letter is in response to the letter of Nancy A. Meister ("Affordable Care Act: A success story," The Signal Jan. 17.)
I believe in Gary Morrison's passion, but not his facts ("Fiddling while climate change damages the Earth" Jan 12 Signal).
I am one of those folks who signed up for the Affordable Care Act. It was my first time on the open health care market, since I always had health care provided from employment, either mine or my spouse's.
Regarding The Signal's Jan. 6 front-page article, "Burglaries on the rise in SCV this past year," I would like to point out that all is not necessarily as it appears.
I honestly don't believe that Democrats and Republicans will ever sit down and compromise on anything. The simple act of governing for all of the people seems to be impossible.
I'd like to applaud Sue Hartman's Jan. 10 column in The Signal ("Fracking for a prosperous California") regarding the benefits of fracking. And I'd like to add a couple of thoughts.
Political pundits have put Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton as the front runners for the next president. Let's compare how the two have handled themselves in the face of recent scandals.
There's darkness in my neighborhood and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed. I don't understand it, but Wiley Canyon Road from Lyons Avenue to Old Orchard is dark, dark, dark. Except for light at intersection, the street is cloaked in black at night.
