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?
I am always pleasantly surprised when I go to another fantastic production put on at the Canyon Theatre Guild.
The Signal wrote on Aug. 2, "Hospital investor donated $30,000 to Ender." Is anyone else outraged by this? I am!
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.
The Signal's recent editorial on California's budget crisis (Aug. 3) was really off the mark.
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.
This letter is in response to Nancy Tujetsch's letter that appeared in The Signal on July 20.
I'm shocked! Is The Signal implying that a local politician might have been "bought" by a developer?
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.
I would like to add my comments after reading articles published in The Signal on child safety.
I am responding to Malcolm Blue's letter to the editor on July 9, "Mormons' opposition to gay marriage is hypocritical."
Although I appreciated John Darkow's political cartoon offering in Monday's (July 28) Signal, his wording was hardly original.
The Santa Clarita Valley is a wonderful place to live. Unfortunately, the gas prices are high all over!
I'm just curious. Does anyone put any thought into the survival of the wildlife before they build what seems like a serene environment for the humans to enjoy?
I read in The Signal where George H. W. Bush, father of the infamous George W. Bush, "celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday by making a tandem parachute jump."
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.
I appreciate Jim Holt's presence at the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees meeting last Wednesday and his subsequent article, "COC showdown" (June 12).
Regarding the controversial release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, below are some of the responses of President Obama to this issue:
The latest assignment some sixth-grade students got in one of our local schools is "Atrocities committed by our troops in Vietnam."
The best description I have heard of the recent fiasco of trading prisoners is that we have exchanged five hand grenades for a squirt gun.
Daniel Wani, an American citizen living in New Hampshire, was not able to celebrate Father's Day with his wife and two tiny American children.
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.
For many years, Lois Eisenberg has written awesome letters to the editor for The Signal. She combines great thinking and great writing in her letters to the editor.
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.
Even during the original ratifications, implementation of procedures and policies in our government faced changes to the Constitution (or Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781).
Rocket Collins, 13 seasons as boys head basket coach at Valencia High School, has been relieved of his position.
Gary Horton's June 4 column "Embracing a fire that still burns us today" is his most articulate column yet, and is so right on!
The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn't work in meeting certain essential societal needs.
It was just so exciting to read how the White House and EPA will save the planet despite those nasty and ridiculous global warming and climate change deniers.
