I read a blog the other day, and a writer was questioning their Mormon neighbors who were having their sixth child.
In reply to the Our View editorial ("Urban center? Not in Santa Clarita!" June 27).
A message to Ken Eliasberg ("The Scott McClellan imbroglio," June 20):
After almost getting hit trying to help the ducks cross Newhall Ranch Road from the new water spot back to Bridgeport, I thought: "Why can't we put up DUCK CROSSING signs so the idiots who travel 80 miles per hour won't wonder where all the feathers came from?"
What would you do if your child came home one day and asked for help with his or her math homework?
I do not like your use of reporters' pictures with the stories on your Web site. It is distracting and confusing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?"
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'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.
In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."
Last week the House of Representatives passed the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 4138), a simple measure by Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that would enable members of Congress to sue the Executive Branch in federal court when it disregards or flagrantly violates the U.S. Constitution.
Now that the saga of Flight 370 is coming to a close, we have to ask ourselves some serious questions.
Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.
The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.
I have the time for Councilman TimBen Boydston to research and present the facts in a transparent manner when a 50-year lighted billboard contract is at stake.
Regarding the Sunday, March 16, Signal story "Abandoned Flag Flies Anew": I salute you, Patrick McGill. Being a vet, I truly appreciate someone who shows their patriotism toward our nation's symbol.
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.
This may be trivial. I enjoy reading The Signal except for one thing - your style on "jump heads."
Saturday at noontime, in the hottest time of day, we passed a large green stretch of land with sprinklers going full blast. I guess they couldn't wait till night.
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.
Sunday night, March 2, I watched the 86th Oscars.
The Feb. 26 edition of The Signal published an article on the billboard proposal talks ("Billboard proposal talks draw hefty crowd to City Hall").
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.
Is there any mainstream religion that does not forbid homosexuality?
