My wife and I moved from Burbank to the Hasley Canyon area five years ago. We had horses in our backyard in Burbank, Griffith Park with its equestrian trails and some deer and coyotes.
The tragedy (student suicide) at Vasquez High School filled me with sadness and anger. Anger because we don't simply have to watch as kids are brutalized day after day.
The following is a copy of a letter sent to Ken Pulskamp, Santa Clarita city manager:|
Santa Clarita is well-known for its fires. We have the Santa Ana winds that make the canyons and passes a big risk.
The mainstream media's slant on Gov. Sarah Palin is worse than shameful. The lady showed up for a job and was immediately debased and vulgarized beyond belief.
Churches are more involved in politics every election. It seems that a line continues to be crossed in the separation of church and state, much more so in the battle of Proposition 8.
Tom Pedersen's letter to the editor and cartoon (Nov. 16) were right on the mark. The Signal's editorial is a misguided encouragement of a master plan that is based upon erroneous assumptions. Mr. Seaver's pronouncement "that it is now or never" is an outright scare tactic with no basis in fact.
We woke up on Nov. 15 and were shocked to see a front-page photo of young man skating at the skate park without a helmet.
Regarding Proposition 8 and the lawsuits, if the minority is allowed to overrule the majority, then I want to start a "impeach Obama" campaign today.
I do not wish to take much of your time other than to inform you of the consequences if Proposition 8 fails.
I have noticed over the past couple of months spotlight articles of the West Ranch Marching Band and Color Guard.
I am writing in response to the letter written by Matthew Brayman and printed in the Sept. 16, 2008, edition of The Signal. Mr. Brayman asserts that Barack Obama's tax proposals will result in a $21,000 tax increase for a family making $75,000.
The Los Angeles City Council has gone on record in support of new federal legislation that would eliminate language defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
I find it inconceivable that anyone, female or male, would give Sarah Palin the election nod.
With all the people out there who can do commentary without being so offensive and showing so much hatred toward those that have a different view, I don't know why The Signal still runs this Mr. (Reg) Henry.
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).
Rocket Collins, 13 seasons as boys head basket coach at Valencia High School, has been relieved of his position.
Gary Horton's June 4 column "Embracing a fire that still burns us today" is his most articulate column yet, and is so right on!
The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn't work in meeting certain essential societal needs.
It was just so exciting to read how the White House and EPA will save the planet despite those nasty and ridiculous global warming and climate change deniers.
