Protesters are not the violent ones

The protest violence that has erupted has been instigated by supporters of Proposition 8.

On being 'good' Americans

Rush Limbaugh has already directed his usual vocal diarrhea outbursts toward our president-elect, while Sean Hannity is frantically looking for the next "big" Republican he can suck up to.

I want to preserve traditional marriage

I voted "yes" on Proposition 8 because I believe in the sanctity of marriage that is the design of God, our creator.

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. Send in the clowns: Thompson, Giuliani, Romney to rant against the evils of the Washington establishment. Thompson runs a big money K Street lobbying firm for companies that greedily crave your money. 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.

Base Hart districts on the high schools

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.

Let’s use our solar energy for our water

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.

Snake alert

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.

We deserve better

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!

Let's be civil

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."

Mind the speed limits and rest in peace

Is it time for artificial turf?

I am sure the rebates on low-flow bathroom products has reduced water consumption considerably.

Time to withdraw the troops

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.

Against all billboards

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.

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.

An open letter to motorists of the Santa Clarita Valley

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.
