Reporters' pictures are too distracting

I do not like your use of reporters' pictures with the stories on your Web site. It is distracting and confusing.

Shame on City Hall for ignoring senior citizens

Thank you, Diana Sevanian, for your informative column about the home-delivered meals program for our valley's seniors ("A main course for senior survival," June 8, 2008) and the great need for additional funds to continue to feed these poor house-bound souls.

On the second page above Diana's column, we are informed that the city will spend $25 million for a new sports complex, including but not limited to a new BMX track, new skateboard park, and so on.

Block Party can only make a good neighborhood better

The city of Santa Clarita and the Canyon Country Advisory Committee have been collaborating on proactive code enforcement issues for the last two years. Questions relative to what ordinances should be targeted, how enforcement policies should be set and how we can assist our neighbors who may require help coming into compliance, have all been on the table.

Kudos to McKeon for support of wilderness

I was pleased to learn that Congressman Buck McKeon has introduced legislation to protect forever as wilderness two wild places in the Angeles National Forest close to my home in Canyon Country.

Wilderness protection is the highest level of protection that any area can receive, and it's something that we can be especially proud of because it's not given lightly and can only happen by act of Congress.

Republican support of troops a sham

A lot of folks like to say that the Republicans support the military.

June 15 marked the 76th anniversary of the 1932 Republican-controlled Senate's rejection of the Patnam Bonus Bill, which would have paid earlier bonuses to the veteran soldiers of World War I then suffering starvation in the Great Depression.

Seniors getting short shrift from the city

How ironic that above Diana Sevanian's story on the tragic plight of the Senior Center's Home-Delivered Meals Program would be a commentary by Councilwoman Laurie Ender espousing the city's $25 million expansion of the Sports Complex.

How shameful!

Hart superintendent responds to editorial

Half of The Signal's June 15 editorial summarized recent allegations of "sexually inappropriate" conduct by William S. Hart Union High School District employees and a volunteer.

The critical question, and the one that district staff has already been answering for understandably concerned parents, appears below the fold. That question is: "Where is the district on this?"

Thumbs down to editing glitches

Is it just me, or have there been some issues with the editing of the newspaper lately?

Just in today's (Saturday, May 24) paper for example, page A1 states the forecast will be High: 64 Low: 43, with isolated showers.

Tim Russert was one in a million

Tim Russert's sudden death is sad for his family, his friends, and his many colleagues, but it is us, the viewers, who should mourn this loss as well.

So many knew he represented unbiased reporting of the issues, especially around election time, and we will now have to work harder to replace what we had come to rely on without question.

City manager responds to development issues

Growth and development have long been major issues for residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. In fact, these issues are key reasons why residents chose to incorporate in the 1980s. Cityhood in 1987 brought local home rule to the four communities of Saugus, Newhall, Valencia and Canyon Country. It enabled the new local government to retain millions every year in tax dollars, 100 percent of which are spent right here in Santa Clarita on roads, parks, transportation, law enforcement, community services, infrastructure, trails and other amenities residents have expressed a desire to bring to our community. Today, Santa Clarita is ...

Kopp should apologize to Tick Canyon residents

Gail Kopp owes me and the thousands of other residents of Tick Canyon an apology for referring to our community as "a dump" ("Park Place to be built in Tick Canyon," June 6, 2008). I assure you I have no discarded tires on my block.

Pining for the days of millionaires and moonshine

Have you noticed that our lifestyle is changing at a fast pace? Today's millionaires are nowhere near as well-off as yesterday's were.

Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day. They are looking forward to the day their wife retires so they can "get out of Dodge," and possibly buy a few acres of land so they can grow their own food and have a windmill which generates power to pump their own water and supply the electrical needs.

Forget Friday, bring back the Sunday TV guide

The Signal has always had the BEST TV guide weekly, and it was in the Sunday edition.

For some reason, you changed it to Friday, and it stinks. Friday to Friday.

Planning for growth

Upon reading The Signal's recent article declaring city planners expect SCV's growth to expand to 500,000 people, I first thought, "Wow! How could our traffic infrastructure possibly handle that?"

Doublespeak and fringe rhetoric

The "Drawing Conclusions" cartoon published in The Signal on March 18 is a perfect example of the doublespeak that comes so easily from the fringes of both left and right - and the stupidity of the voters who don't even bother to think about what they're hearing.

Tracking the elusive ‘jump head’

This may be trivial. I enjoy reading The Signal except for one thing - your style on "jump heads."

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Our Senior Center needs everyone’s help

At the City Council meeting I asked "What happened" most of the candidates have stated they have been on the Senior Boards for years. Yet it is outdated and underfunded.

Campaign blight

During each City Council election cycle the citizens of Santa Clarita are subjected to a plethora of campaign blight on public property created by candidates who are asking for voters to entrust them to represent their interests in our beautiful community.

Conserving water

I was thinking: Why do we have to cut down on our water usage by 20 percent while the city tears up the center dividers and plants more trees, flowers and bushes?
