Imagine my surprise when I opened the paper and saw an opinion piece from Frank Arenson blaming liberals for the fear-mongering that has been happening over the past eight years with the Bush Administration.
Just a note regarding Mr. Osbornes' column on JJ DiLuigi. It was nice to have Cary back, if only for one column.
The Londoner pub in Canyon Country is known for being a community-oriented business. We have raised money and awareness for many local charities, including the Santa Clarita Domestic Violence Center, Yes I Can, and the American Cancer Society.
I was struck by the contrast of the two facing columns appearing on the front of the Opinion section in the Aug. 17 Signal.
This letter is another in response to The Signal's article on July 25, headlined "Family grapples with loss of toddler."

Regarding the recentater main break in Valencia, I am curious to know what - if any - measures were taken to filter the water of chloramine before the water reached the storm drains, as this particular break was near the Santa Clara River.
What an absolute fool! When Bush first met Putin he said, "I looked the man in the eye. I was able to get a sense of his soul."

After reading Tim Myers' article about G&L Realty's contribution to Laura Ender's campaign, I could only wonder about his motivation for writing such a biased opinion. He talks about assuming facts not in evidence but never mentions any of the facts that are in evidence.
Network TV likes sex! Just not within marriage.
Another school year begins, and despite consistently rising gas prices and the latest war (Russia-Georgia), which in all likelihood is to secure future access to known oil supplies, there are still lots of folks who park and burn Texas Tea waiting to pick up their kids.
Your editorial cartoon comparing the U.S.S.R.'s 1968 invasion of Czechoslavakia and America's global war on terror in the Aug. 16 paper was not even fit to use as fish wrap.
I recently participated in a conference call/town hall forum with our local congressional representative "Buck" McKeon. I was one of many callers who got to listen in and vote on the issue of what to do about our oil crisis.

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.

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.
Correction: The following letter to the editor is being repeated because the wrong name of the writer was printed at the bottom of the letter when it was originally published on Wednesday. Albert Bigelow did not write this letter. The correct letter writer's name appears today.
Did anyone else note the TV newscast showing insurgents in Iraq opening the old bunker?
