Flatulence is Not Funny

To The Editor:

Something smells awful at the Signal.

What About the Victim?

To The Editor:

It was really disheartening to read the article "Mother of convicted murderer speaks out" (Feb. 29, 2008).

The Ultimate Sacrifice for Freedom

To The Editor:

Regarding Howard Barr's letter of Feb. 28, mentioning my name ('Troops in Iraq for the Wrong Reasons'), which was a reaction to a previous letter I wrote that was published on Feb. 24, ('Please Vet Stories'):

Money Wasted on Name Change

To The Editor:

I totally agree with Debbie Johnson's letter ('A Waste of $20,000, Feb. 20) that it is "an absolute waste of time and taxpayers' money to change the names of existing streets in downtown Newhall."

In Defense of Electoral Reform

To The Editor:

Democrats worried that Ralph Nader's presidential race might tip the scale in a crucial state over to the Republican nominee come November should embrace the opportunity before them to stop it before it happens: Not by tossing epithets at Nader or preventing his candidacy, but by immediately engaging in a program of electoral reform in key states to prevent such a possibility.

Thanks for Escape Theatre's 'Oliver'

To The Editor:

Many of you may have seen Escape Theatre's wonderful production of "Oliver" at Hart High on Feb. 1 through Feb. 3. But what you didn't see was the incredible amount of work and the months of dedication and sacrifice that Kyle and Elizabeth Burson and all others directly involved in producing the show went through.

Profiling in the SCV

To The Editor:

If you talk to just about anyone in this town they are likely to tell you that Santa Clarita is a great place to raise a family. I definitely agree that this is a very safe town, but I must tell you that this is a horrible place to live if you happen to be between the ages of 13 and 35. I can not begin to tell you how many times I have been harassed because of my age. From the Sheriff's Department to some of the business owners, we seem to have a huge ...

MRF Zoning Contradiction

To The Editor:

I attended the City Council candidate debate on Feb. 27 at the Senior Center. I would like to correct an important misstatement that candidate Diane Trautman, currently a city planning commissioner, made when asked if she would support a MRF at the latest proposed site: 75.11 acres on the east side of Sierra Highway, just north of Placerita Canyon Road, between Sierra Highway and Highway 14.

Boston's Talent Wasted

To The Editor:

Having lived in the SCV and been a subscriber to the Signal since 1973, I am very familiar with John Boston. Some of his writing was witty and brilliant.

Missing John Boston

To The Editor:

I don't know why The Signal parted company with John Boston, but now something is missing.

Troops in Iraq for the Wrong Reasons

To The Editor:

My only disagreement with Mr. Colman's letter ("Please Vet Stories," Feb. 24, 2008) is this perpetuated myth that our servicemen fighting in Iraq are there "risking their lives in Iraq for our freedom." There are a lot of reasons why we're there, but "our freedom" isn't one of them.

Heads-Up for Heads Up

To The Editor:

As many of you are aware, on Feb. 16, the Jim Tindell Bowl-a-Thon for Heads Up was postponed. It was not a planned event and you could say that it was just rotten luck. The event was being hosted by the SCV-Newhall Optimist Club and there were over 80 people there ready to bowl.

Have Some Backbone

To The Editor:

It was amazing. At 6:30 on Tuesday morning, it was the sound of hysterical laughter as community members in Castaic read the Tuesday edition of the paper. The Hart School Board is going to do a survey to see if Castaic needs a new school or if another school might need a performing arts center.

Kids Need a Place to Skate

To The Editor:

I don't understand our city leaders and planning department. Why not build a new skate park before tearing down the old one? Our young people need a place to skateboard.

Boston's Talent Will Be Missed

To The Editor:

Apparently great writing talent and an incredibly subtle, witty sense of humor doesn't count at the "new" Signal. Who chased off Mr. Santa Clarita, John Boston? Was that a corporate smooth move or just one of those dumb things that big- city newspapers do when they don't know how to deal with a truly talented, award-winning member of the staff who helped build the newspaper to what it has become today?

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.

July 22, 2014 | Chis Matalas Newhall | Letters to the Editor


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!

July 20, 2014 | Dana L. Stern Sr. Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


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."

July 20, 2014 | Anne Marie Whalley Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


Mind the speed limits and rest in peace

Since this is the time when a great many Santa Clarita families will be hitting the road on vacation, I thought I should share my recent experience with readers.

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."

July 15, 2014 | Susann Rizzo and Cliff Fletcher Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Is it time for artificial turf?

I am sure the rebates on low-flow bathroom products has reduced water consumption considerably.

July 13, 2014 | Dick Ramirez Valencia | Letters to the Editor


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.

July 13, 2014 | Dana L. Stern Sr. Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


Tell the truth, Ms. Dupuy

On July 3, The Signal published a column by Tina Dupuy titled "Freedom for Hobby Lobby's religious rights."

July 10, 2014 | Alden Chase Valencia | Letters to the Editor


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.

July 10, 2014 | Dick Cesaroni Saugus | Letters to the Editor


Hooray for concerned U.S. citizens like Brian Baker

Brian Baker's column published in The Signal June 30 ("The IRS is far from earning back our trust") is spot on!

July 09, 2014 | By P. Bottaro Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


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.

July 08, 2014 | By Laurene Weste Santa Clarita mayor | Letters to the Editor


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.

July 06, 2014 | By Lois Eisenberg Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Let’s not expand our need for water during drought times

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.
