A teacher, a tutor and an inspiration to many

What would you do if your child came home one day and asked for help with his or her math homework?

Reporters' pictures are too distracting

I do not like your use of reporters' pictures with the stories on your Web site. It is distracting and confusing.

Shame on City Hall for ignoring senior citizens

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.

Block Party can only make a good neighborhood better

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.

Kudos to McKeon for support of wilderness

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.

Republican support of troops a sham

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.

Seniors getting short shrift from the city

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.

How shameful!

Hart superintendent responds to editorial

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?"

Thumbs down to editing glitches

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 was one in a million

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.

City manager responds to development issues

Growth and development have long been major issues for residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. In fact, these issues are key reasons why residents chose to incorporate in the 1980s. Cityhood in 1987 brought local home rule to the four communities of Saugus, Newhall, Valencia and Canyon Country. It enabled the new local government to retain millions every year in tax dollars, 100 percent of which are spent right here in Santa Clarita on roads, parks, transportation, law enforcement, community services, infrastructure, trails and other amenities residents have expressed a desire to bring to our community. Today, Santa Clarita is ...

Kopp should apologize to Tick Canyon residents

Gail Kopp owes me and the thousands of other residents of Tick Canyon an apology for referring to our community as "a dump" ("Park Place to be built in Tick Canyon," June 6, 2008). I assure you I have no discarded tires on my block.

Pining for the days of millionaires and moonshine

Have you noticed that our lifestyle is changing at a fast pace? Today's millionaires are nowhere near as well-off as yesterday's were.

Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day. They are looking forward to the day their wife retires so they can "get out of Dodge," and possibly buy a few acres of land so they can grow their own food and have a windmill which generates power to pump their own water and supply the electrical needs.

Forget Friday, bring back the Sunday TV guide

The Signal has always had the BEST TV guide weekly, and it was in the Sunday edition.

For some reason, you changed it to Friday, and it stinks. Friday to Friday.

COC’s Board of Trustees is impotent to effect change

During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.

Culture at COC needs healing

Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.

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.

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.

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.

Is our government balanced or imbalanced?

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).
