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.
Thank you, Diana Sevanian, for your article in the opinion section on Sept. 7 regarding Sarah Palin.
Southern California Edison's hypocrisy is now exposed. Very exposed. So much for their "Environmentally Conscious" advertising.
Karl Marx, the father of communism, stated in a speech given in Brussels, Belgium, on Jan. 8, 1848: "The (free trade) system is destructive. I will use the (free trade) system to break down nationalities in order to build my communist world."
Who is responsible for copy editing at The Signal? I wonder this almost daily, most often when the copy is local, but sometimes even with copy from the wire services. Examples are voluminous, but a case in point: Did anyone there notice that "Doonesbury" was there in name only (no strip) in the Sept. 18 edition?
We people of faith can and do hold different opinions on issues. In regard to Proposition 8, I am puzzled that those who have known/experienced religious discrimination would choose to discriminate against gays and lesbians whose sexuality is NOT a choice.
I suggest to David Kirscher ('Flipping the bird' is protected expression, Letters, Nov. 11) that even though "flipping off" a group of political demonstrators may be protected as a form of "political speech," how about practicing common decency? Just because it is legal doesn't make it right.
The public seems to have already forgotten that the election in Los Angeles County was a travesty for early voters.
Gov. Schwarzenegger seems to have it all wrong. Originally he said he believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman and he rejected legislation authorizing same-sex marriage (ref. Los Angeles Times, Nov. 10: "Schwarzenegger tells backers of gay marriage").
Dear John Graham Who Voted Yes on 8 (Letters, Nov. 13): You believe in the sanctity of marriage that is the design of God, our creator, and believe it should be between one man and one woman in a miraculous procreative purpose.
I replaced the word "religion" or "religious" with "gay" or "gayness" in the following from EEOC. Interesting!
In my humble opinion, the most straightforward, simplest answer to the William S. Hart Union High School District going to board member representation by areas/districts would be to add two board positions.
It seems incomprehensible that with the great shortage of water for this state, trillions of gallons of water lie off the cost and remains unused by those affected most.
Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.
John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!
I agree with Gary Horton (Opinion, July 9). It seems though that our country is less civil. If I speak of our President, I will state "our President" or "Mr. Barack Obama."
Since this is the time when a great many Santa Clarita families will be hitting the road on vacation, I thought I should share my recent experience with readers.
The Signal reported on July 10 ("Bill would mandate sick pay for part-time employees") that the City Council voted to oppose Assembly Bill 1522 as the "...estimated financial impact to the city as a result of the bill could be as high as $180,000 per year."
I am sure the rebates on low-flow bathroom products has reduced water consumption considerably.
I believe that we need to withdraw troops in Iraq now. It is a mistake for any troops to be there, and they are there in great peril.
On July 3, The Signal published a column by Tina Dupuy titled "Freedom for Hobby Lobby's religious rights."
First of all, I am absolutely against all of the billboards in the Santa Clarita Valley - including the ones along the Metro right-of-way. I am also against the digital sign boards along the freeways.
Brian Baker's column published in The Signal June 30 ("The IRS is far from earning back our trust") is spot on!
A recent letter writer complimented Santa Clarita's trail system and inquired as to whether the city will be adding more trails, specifically near the Newhall Ranch Road underpass.
Speeding, cellphone calling, texting, tail-gating arrogance, complete disregard for the other motorist and other numerous unsafe practices while driving that cause accidents - these have been my contention in many letters to the editor that I have submitted to The Signal.
The city of Santa Clarita's response to my letter (June 23, "When will the city water medians responsibly?") regarding watering, the saving of water and new landscaping was full of details.
