Missing John Boston

To The Editor:

How do you replace John Boston...They didn't make two of him! Santa Clarita has lost another piece of its individuality. We miss you John, and the fun you brought to all of us for all these years. The Signal is left with a huge hole and no one to fill it!

Fibromyalgia Is Real

To The Editor:

Your Op Ed "The Controversy over Fibromyalgia" (Campos, Jan. 28, 2008) was very disconcerting. I've heard from many members of our local fibro support group and the comments were varied - disbelief, discouragement, anger.

April 26, 2008 | Karen Jeffries Co-Leader, Santa Clarita Valley Fibromyalgia Support Group | Letters to the Editor


Unadulterated Drivel

To The Editor:

Unadulterated drivel. How else does one describe the commentary "Huckabee Remarks Deserve Attention" by John Crisp (Feb. 21, 2008)? I am not sure what Mr. Crisp does in the English department at Del Mar College, but I certainly hope he is there as a student.

Kudos to Dianne

To The Editor:

I was compelled to write after reading Dianne Erskine-Hellrigel's commentary in Thursday's Signal ("Quit Trashing Santa Clarita," Feb. 14, 2008). I want to reiterate her strong words and encourage everyone living in this still-beautiful valley to do what they can to help - whether it be picking up trash on our many trails and in our neighborhoods, or reporting illegal dumping and littering.

Talk of 'Change' is Cheap

To The Editor:

At the risk of sounding either not fully informed or just scared about how the media is depicting the voters, especially Clinton vs. Obama, I bring this to the table: Both proclaim "change" and "hope." Not all change is good, and it can be frustrating to continue hoping for the many kinds of change each American wants. No government can please everyone, but even in the name of "the kids" or "the next generation" we must try to discern what is intended to be changed - and how much it will cost us.

Goodbye, John Boston

To The Editor:

It really is sad to hear that one of the best darn story writers has left. I will certainly miss the "Time Ranger" and a lot of other readers will miss him as well. He has really kept the community in the know of the history of the SCV. My wife and I have always looked forward to his weekly columns and stories. JOHN, please reconsider. There is that gift of balance you have in making people smile and laugh when reading our local news.

Take your Bike to the Amgen Race

The front page newspaper story on "How to Get Around during the Amgen Tour" made no mention of the best way to get around ... on your bike!

April 24, 2008 | By Maria Gutzeit President of the Board, Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition | Letters to the Editor


Save Newhall Hardware

To The Editor:

WHAT? Newhall Hardware is closing? THAT CAN'T BE. It's been a landmark in the local community for 60 years. It's always been the place where you could get advice from knowledgeable people and find almost anything.

What's Really Frightening

To The Editor:

Regarding Ann Pfeifer's letter (Feb. 18, 2008): Thank you, Ann, for being the community gatekeeper for public virtue. I suppose next week you will tell us what books we should burn. Quite frankly, your suggestion that I contact CBS and complain about a show I haven't seen, based on your opinion, or the opinion of some Web site, concerns me just a little more than the content of "Dexter." Even Dexter deserves a trial by the jury of public opinion. In reality, Ann, people with your thought process frighten me more than "Dexter."

Alarcon Responds

I was stunned to read in Jim Holt's article (Feb. 19, 2008) that I endorsed the Las Lomas development. On the contrary, I have publicly opposed the project as it stands.

Shadowers Express Thanks

Thank you so much for your time and effort in this year's Groundhog Day National Job Shadow Day. Thanks to the help of all the businesses in Santa Clarita, over 200 students from different schools were allowed the chance for an in-depth look at careers that interest them. Doing this for our students is a positive thing that gets our young kids excited about working after school. It is truly amazing that a community could work together to make this event possible.

Cut the Rhetoric About Schools

To The Editor:

Regarding Ed Nemechek's letter (Feb. 7, 2008): Mr. Nemechek, perhaps coming from a tiny town deep in the Mojave Desert, known for a 1992 earthquake, a large rock, and as a gathering place for UFO believers in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s has tainted your perspective.

A Change for the Better

To The Editor:

I wish to thank you so much for 'fixing' The Signal. I thank you especially for 'fixing' the Escape section, which I used to so enjoy, but which had become stupid, low-class and, well... disgusting. What's funny about making fun of people? Or showing faces of movie stars while talking about important locals, or what's going on in town? Doing things upside down, inverting photos, etc., strange (made up) quotes and tasteless or just non-funny jokes. It seemed like a fake, silly newspaper one of my sons and his buddies would create for fun, at ...

'Shoe'-less Signal

I read the comic strips in three newspapers daily. I think the most consistently witty, clever, intelligent one is "Shoe." Please bring it back.

A Waste of $20,000

To The Editor:

What a absolute waste of time and taxpayers money to change the names of existing streets in downtown Newhall. What is the purpose of doing that? As if it is not enough to go through the parking change in downtown Newhall, only to change it back. Do you think that maybe Newhall Hardware is closing and the other businesses are affected financially is because of these changes? And now $20,000.00 will go to the "name change project"?

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.

COC needs to focus attention on the students

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).

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t

Schools should educate, not indoctrinate

The latest assignment some sixth-grade students got in one of our local schools is "Atrocities committed by our troops in Vietnam."

Trading fiasco

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.

June 18, 2014 | By Glenda Johnson Newhall | Letters to the Editor


War on women

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.

June 18, 2014 | By Gary Curtis Valencia | Letters to the Editor


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.

June 18, 2014 | Wendy Brill-Wynkoop Department Chair, Photography, College of the Canyons | Letters to the Editor


An Eisenberg fan

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.

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).

Winning Coach Ousted

Rocket Collins, 13 seasons as boys head basket coach at Valencia High School, has been relieved of his position.

An all-consuming fire

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!

Compulsion is not compassion

The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn't work in meeting certain essential societal needs.

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.
