Why not give Cindy McCain a break?

It wasn't hard to miss a recent large, unflattering color photo of Cindy McCain, along with an equally unflattering commentary. Unknown to many of us, apparently there is some mandatory onus on Mrs. McCain, that should she become first lady she "must use her past drug addiction for the benefit the masses."

Buying votes?

The recent revelation that G&L Realty contributed $30,000 to a committee that in turn spent $29,000 to support Laurie Ender's election (a vocal proponent of the hospital's growth plans) raises a question: Has big-city influence spending made its way big time to our small city?

Canyon Theater Guild is stunning

Elections should not go to highest bidder

Re-evaluate the politicians, not Prop 13

This is in response to a local commentary written by Cal Planakis on July 29. Ms. Planakis in one of those many sniffling citizens who are the first to attack or "re-evaluate" Prop. 13 whenever the state falls into financial straits.

A new library in downtown Newhall is most needed.

Take a stand: No more waste in state government

The Signal's recent editorial on California's budget crisis (Aug. 3) was really off the mark.

Thanks for emergency response system in city

Once again I must extend thanks and commendations to the city of Santa Clarita. I am not exactly sure to whom the kudos should be directed, but I think at a minimum Ken Pulskamp, the city manger.

Laurie Ender probably did it for Ferry’s sake

I'm shocked! Is The Signal implying that a local politician might have been "bought" by a developer?

Get well and get out of that hospital

I read with interest the letter to the editor from Vernon Donnelly (July 24). Mr. Donnelly, I certainly hope you are feeling better now after your Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital experience.

Ah, if it were only possible

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.

COC needs to speak with honesty and fairness

Jim Holt's June 10 article "COC faculty rejects contract" attempted to offer a fair view of the dissension that has developed between college administrators and the full-time faculty.

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.
