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.

Age discrimination at the movies is unfair

Recently, in an effort to help my mother out, I went to buy movie tickets for her and a friend at the Edwards Cinema in Canyon Country.

The post office is getting too costly

I would like the public to know that it is getting a rough deal in the shipping and handling the post office is giving to the public.

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.

Subregions deserve their share of funds

A Los Angeles Times editorial accused county Supervisor Gloria Molina of being "parochial" and an "obstructionist" because she advocates for protecting the regional distribution of revenue under the proposed sales tax measure.

State should have taken on Blue Cross

On July 4, I read an article in The Signal titled "State feared insurance big guns." In summary, the article stated that Anthem Blue Cross had the largest number of rescissions "about 1,770" between January 1, 2004, and now. Having read this article, I turned a bright shade of purple. There is nothing that can destroy a family faster than to have their health insurance cancelled. Although the article does not say, I assume these were most likely individual insurance policies and not group policies.

Will the real urban center please stand up?

There has been a lot of talk generated over the term "urban center" - did our city manager say he wants to turn our suburban bedroom community into a legitimate urban center of its own, or was he incorrectly paraphrased?

Urban centers should first do no harm

The first rule of "urban centers" should be a line from the Hippocratic Oath: "First of all, do no harm."

Strickland’s the best candidate for state senate

Hannah-Beth Jackson claims that she is running as a "representative of the people" and that Republicans have not represented the 19th Senate District well.

Let’s take control of the price of oil

I wonder what would happen if President Bush decided to sell a lot of the oil that he has in our reserves, say, for $75 per barrel. Just what would the buyers of futures in oil do? Maybe lose a lot of money?

Same-sex marriage ruling means fairness for all

In the past month I've read many opinions about why same-sex marriage threatens the institution of marriage. Frankly, I'm baffled.

Base Hart districts on the high schools

In my humble opinion, the most straightforward, simplest answer to the William S. Hart Union High School District going to board member representation by areas/districts would be to add two board positions.

Let’s use our solar energy for our water

It seems incomprehensible that with the great shortage of water for this state, trillions of gallons of water lie off the cost and remains unused by those affected most.

Snake alert

Recently, I was driving in my neighborhood when something caught my eye crossing the street in front of me. A very large gopher snake was booking it across the hot asphalt from left to right.

We deserve better

John Boehner is the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He leads the House of Representatives as majority leader. Senator Mitch McConnell is the minority leader of the Senate. He's been attacking the President for the last six years unsuccessfully!

Let's be civil

I agree with Gary Horton (Opinion, July 9). It seems though that our country is less civil. If I speak of our President, I will state "our President" or "Mr. Barack Obama."

Mind the speed limits and rest in peace

City needs to say ‘yes’ to sick pay for part-time employees

The Signal reported on July 10 ("Bill would mandate sick pay for part-time employees") that the City Council voted to oppose Assembly Bill 1522 as the "...estimated financial impact to the city as a result of the bill could be as high as $180,000 per year."

Time to withdraw the troops

I believe that we need to withdraw troops in Iraq now. It is a mistake for any troops to be there, and they are there in great peril.

Against all billboards

First of all, I am absolutely against all of the billboards in the Santa Clarita Valley - including the ones along the Metro right-of-way. I am also against the digital sign boards along the freeways.

Many more bike trails in the works for Santa Clarita

A recent letter writer complimented Santa Clarita's trail system and inquired as to whether the city will be adding more trails, specifically near the Newhall Ranch Road underpass.

An open letter to motorists of the Santa Clarita Valley

Speeding, cellphone calling, texting, tail-gating arrogance, complete disregard for the other motorist and other numerous unsafe practices while driving that cause accidents - these have been my contention in many letters to the editor that I have submitted to The Signal.

The city of Santa Clarita's response to my letter (June 23, "When will the city water medians responsibly?") regarding watering, the saving of water and new landscaping was full of details.
