The city’s park standards must be maintained

On July 15, I asked the City Planning Commission how the proposed new general plan being developed under the "One Valley, One Vision" will meet the city's existing park space requirement, which is five acres per 1,000 residents per the city of Santa Clarita General Plan, dated 06/25/91 (see page 15 of the Parks and Recreation Element at the following link: www.santa-clarita.com/cityhall/cd/planning/general_plan.asp ).

Horton doth protest too much

Ha! When Gary Horton has to take up over one-third of The Signal opinion page to rant about Sarah Palin, then it's a sure bet the Republicans have the right VP candidate! As in Hamlet, "The lady (or Gary in this case) doth protest too much, methinks." It's not your party, Gary, so get over it! It's a sure sign the liberals are running scared, and I'll be helping in the chase.

The lipstick just doesn't help Palin

The shutters are coming off the windows and Minnesotans are checking for wind damage. I enjoyed watching the Republican National Circus as they showed their true colors and hatred for working Americans.

Giuliani runs a security consulting company that works for Middle Eastern Countries that financed the 9/11 attacks. Romney made his millions by destroying a company and laid off hundreds by shipping American jobs off to ...

We're finally getting our country back

Wow, what an overwhelming mandate for change! On election night I saw dancing and singing in the streets. The entire world rejoices as we can now put the horrific and arrogant policies of the two Bush and friends' administrations behind us.

Teach our children well

Having grown up (near downtown) Los Angeles, it comes as no surprise to learn that children can be so cruel to others. Bullies are always with us, like bad weather.

Edison overpowers community with towers

The recent Southern California Edison construction of the huge, overpowering lattice steel towers adjacent to my home is an abomination and a slap in the face to me and my neighbors!

Family life is important to Sarah Palin

Of course it matters to Americans if the vice president's 17-year-old, unmarried daughter is pregnant.

O.J.: All about intercollegiate athletics

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.

Bergdahl’s a deserter

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.
