PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: The Need for New Blood on the City Council

To clear up any confusion, let me began by saying that I personally paid for this letter of endorsement to be published. It is a somewhat unusual policy to have to pay for an opinion letter, so I want the readers to know that it was I who paid for the opinion, and not the other way around.

When a conservative sees a product or service he likes overseas, he often thinks, "Someone needs to start a business and bring that to my area. Hey, maybe I could start it myself!"

Consumers, take charge of the billboard issue

I fail to see what all the billboard hullabaloo is about. It's obvious these vast slabs of advertising are a visual blight.

Obamacare: biggest fiasco since Prohibition

In Tuesday's Democratic Voices column in The Signal ("The game-changer for Democrats"), Kevin Buck wrote another of his signature Dem/socialist rah-rah pieces cheering all things leftist, booing all things conservative and Republican, and essentially pinning his arguments on Obamacare, claiming "millions of Americans now have access to quality, low-cost insurance and health care for the first time in their lives."

Can you say Vladimir?

Last week the House of Representatives passed the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 4138), a simple measure by Congressman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that would enable members of Congress to sue the Executive Branch in federal court when it disregards or flagrantly violates the U.S. Constitution.

Looking for answers at tonight’s City Council meeting

Tonight is the third and probably last meeting to discuss the electronic billboard issue at Santa Clarita City Hall at 6.p.m. The first two meetings lasted until around midnight with an overwhelming number of attendees (in the hundreds) voicing opposition.

Complications, questions linger in billboard issue

The March 20 Signal article "SCV billboard proposal hits a snag" points out still another reason not to proceed with the ill-advised plan to erect digital billboards on the Interstate 5 freeway and Highway 14: a change of zoning would be necessary.

Revisiting ‘Abandoned Flag Flies Anew’

Regarding the Sunday, March 16, Signal story "Abandoned Flag Flies Anew": I salute you, Patrick McGill. Being a vet, I truly appreciate someone who shows their patriotism toward our nation's symbol.

Doublespeak and fringe rhetoric

The "Drawing Conclusions" cartoon published in The Signal on March 18 is a perfect example of the doublespeak that comes so easily from the fringes of both left and right - and the stupidity of the voters who don't even bother to think about what they're hearing.

Tracking the elusive ‘jump head’

This may be trivial. I enjoy reading The Signal except for one thing - your style on "jump heads."

Sprinklers and corporate citizenship

Saturday at noontime, in the hottest time of day, we passed a large green stretch of land with sprinklers going full blast. I guess they couldn't wait till night.

PAID CANDIDATE ENDORSEMENT LETTER: Our Senior Center needs everyone’s help

At the City Council meeting I asked "What happened" most of the candidates have stated they have been on the Senior Boards for years. Yet it is outdated and underfunded.

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 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.
