Who died and made Bobb sheriff?

I honestly don't recall electing Merrick Bobb as sheriff. I pay more than $500 a month for my HMO health insurance plan and often have to wait weeks to see a doctor. That's only if I get authorization for my referral.

American beer should stay American

To all the shareholders of Anheuser-Busch who voted the wrong way the other day, I have a few words for you: Duh! What were you thinking?

A message about oil for our elected officials

Below is a letter that I have sent to Gov. Schwarzenegger, Sens. Boxer, and Feinstein, and Reps. McKeon, George Runner, and Strickland. I'm hoping it will stir people from their slumber (if the gas and food prices haven't already) and encourage them to make their voices heard in Sacramento and Washington.

Dense development at Smiser ranch? No way

Editor's note: While our July 3 call for comments about an urban center in the Santa Clarita Valley was not directed at the now-defunct The Avenue at Santa Clarita planned development, several readers responded with specific feedback on that proposal. Here is one letter.

‘Vertical’ development is not the answer

Do fireworks really damage air quality?

I found it quite perplexing that in Parimal Rohit's article ("SCV: Where you can see the air you breathe," July 8), neither he nor the South Coast Air Quality Management District official mentioned the recent fires as a possible cause for the poor air quality.

Gay marriage: It’s time to give up witch hunts

I'm a straight, married man who doesn't worry about what other folks are doing. A wise state legislator recently remarked that with the war on terrorism, the economy, the collapse of the housing market and the high price of gasoline, he had more important things to worry about than gays getting married. I concur.

What about the rest of Canyon Country?

Let me begin by saying that I used to attend the so-called "Canyon Country" Community Action Committee meetings. I stopped going because it seemed to several of us at these meetings that it was all about the Whites Canyon area, except when they wanted to complain about signage at shopping centers or a particular business.

Ah, if it were only possible

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."

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.

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.

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).

Let’s hear it for government climate intervention

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.
