Boycotting gas does not work. Everyone needs gasoline to live, so let's not boycott gasoline. Get as much gasoline as you need.
Now that California's liberal judges have once again erased the will and intent of the voters in ruling to make gay marriage legal, let's see if they have the same fortitude and tenacity for what they would call an "unintended consequence."
The closing of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is an important step in the improvement of health care and acute patient care in the Santa Clarita Valley. Our seniors (and I am one!) will not be ignored or rejected. The TCU closing means they will get faster treatment in the emergency room and will get quicker acute care with more available beds. If the community really wants more hospital beds, closing ...
To The Editor: I wanted to respond to a letter to the editor by Janice L. Maurizi, Director of the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office ("No Stone was unturned during quest for justice," Sunday, May 18). Janice, you are 100% correct! I should have done more digging into the people that did make a difference, including your efforts. When I wrote the commentary on slain Deputy David March, I made every sincere effort to ...
It's only through the kind donations of others that the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry can help feed the people in our valley who are considered "food insecure" - those who must skip meals, or eat non-nutritional foods just to satisfy their hunger.
We commend Driftwood Dairy for reducing the calorie content of its line of flavored milks offered to students in Southern California public schools ("Chocolate milk now healthy for students," May 18).
Gay marriage is legal! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! I suppose the funniest part of the story is that it was made legal by justices appointed by conservative Republicans! Where is your party now, you religious fanatics, you bigots? The very same people who oppose gay marriage are the same kind of people who opposed multi-racial marriages 30 years ago. These people need to be deported because they are not true Americans. Face it: your ...
To The Editor: I have long supported Robin Clough, Dr. Gene Dorio, and the Senior Center in their efforts to keep the TCU open, and I strongly echo Robin's recent call to conscience for seniors. After considering the various economic and moral arguments presented thus far regarding the fate of the TCU, we must decide whether economics or conscience is more compelling. Personally, I am with Robin on this one, so my conscience is clear. ...
To The Editor: Last Thursday's decision by California's Supreme Court was truly overwhelming to me. I am astounded that the ruling to permit same-sex couples an opportunity to recognize their love and commitment to each other in marriage actually occurred in my lifetime, and was decided by four of the six moderate Republicans in the court of seven. The case also had the greatest number of amicus briefs in the history of the California Supreme ...
To The Editor: We have a systemic problem in our Woodlands neighborhood that is terrorizing residents and nobody is prepared to do anything about it. My dog was brutally mutilated and disemboweled by a roving pack of coyotes that goes unchecked in our neighborhood. The same pack stalks joggers, children, and dogs within our neighborhood. This is fact, evidenced by photographs. Although we have raised concerns within the proper channels, no one has taken any ...
There's a lot I can't do for the elderly. I can't cure them. I can't feed them. I can't give them shelter.
To The Editor: Let me get this straight. You can get a citation if you run a red light in the SCV but don't get in an accident, but will not get a citation if you run a red light but do get in an accident (Sunday, May 11, 2008). Huh?
To The Editor: Propositions 98 and 99 on the June 3 ballot need everyone's attention because the eminent domain law is one of the most disgusting, outrageous and revolting pieces of legislation ever written and passed into law, and runs parallel with another piece of legislation called Mello-Roos tax. What makes both of these pieces of garbage legislation outrageous is that they have been abused over and over, year after year, hurting many people in ...
To The Editor: I wanted to drop a few compliments to The Signal. Love the new Web site (I know I'm a little late commenting). Much appreciate today's (May 4) Main News section with news and several pages to read as I relaxed with my coffee and muffins. Thrilled that The Signal's magazine - SCV Living - is back (or else I haven't noticed it for a few years) and to see Michele Buttelman as ...
To The Editor: I have been trying to conjure up the thoughts in my mind about my displeasure with the current Signal. I haven't taken the paper as long as Susan Roberts ("Darn that Signal," April 25, 2008) since I only moved herein July '03. But she was able to convey almost everything I find wrong, and with a better writing style. The only thing she missed was the lack of stats, lineups and standings ...
Now that the reality of Obamacare is setting in, we can all be mindful of the fact that we can thank Chief Justice John Roberts for the pain.
This is a copy of a letter to Dr. Dianne Van Hook, the chancellor of College of the Canyons:
I was recently thinking that people, at least in Santa Clarita, are getting much more polite and courteous than they used to be.
The health care debacle has been beaten to death over the past month, and I am here to get my licks in.
TimBen Boydston is a cancer on the Santa Clarita City Council.
I would like to start by offering my sincerest condolences to the family of TSA Officer Gerardo Hernandez, and in no way do I want my words to diminish their loss.
Bob Comer writes in The Signal that he will vote for Democrat Lee Rogers if Rogers will pledge to live under the Obamacare exchanges like the rest of us, since Republican Buck McKeon is not doing that and even though Comer himself is a staunch Republican ("Abiding by the laws they make," Nov. 6).
I began my collegiate career at College of the Canyons in the early 1980s and, even back then, Canyons was an excellent community college - and that was before Dianne Van Hook began calling the shots there.
In response to Cheryl Lagrasta's article, I would like to explain how difficult it is to learn a second language - but it can be done.
This eleventh of November, our nation will commemorate Veterans Day in tribute to the members of the armed forces who made great sacrifices defending our liberties.
I have played men's Sunday Softball for 23 years for Santa Clarita Parks & Recreation. Little did I know, playing ball would save my life.
Jonathan Kraut's thoughtful column of Nov. 5 ("District vs. at-large voting") brings up an issue of how we elect our City Council. We really should consider it.
Ninety-four years ago, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 Armistice Day to remember the end of World War I and the veterans who served our country.
Regarding the Nov. 5 letter to the editor titled "Placing blame on bicyclist outrageous":
Was there no way to stop it, the ACA?The Republicans, the tea party, all said 'Nay.'
