What a shame that the Encinitas Union School District faces a possible lawsuit from the parents of the children there.
Friday night on Dec. 21, we had one of our annual candy cane giveaways for the homeless shelter.
I know there were reasons that "Follow the Star" was canceled this year by the church. You referred to plans in the recent Signal article for saving it in the future.
With his usual vitriol and high dudgeon, Charlie Vignola's anti-gun tirade ("What's needed to pass gun control laws?" Dec. 20) flies wide of the mark.
With the "Academy Awards" show fast approaching, I thought you fellow movie aficionados would be interested in knowing which movies we will have to leave our valley to see:
The (Santa Clarita Valley) Sanitation District and a coalition of upstream and downstream water users made an agreement in 2008 that reduced the cost of chloride treatment by 50 percent.
It was written online recently that the attack on our consulate in Benghazi was not an attack on our sovereign soil.
Well, here we go again - the 98 percent will get their Bush tax cuts made permanent. Why, you ask? Well, 20 years ago, Grover Norquist had all Republicans sign a pledge never to raise taxes on anyone. If you did, he would make sure you never got re-elected. So if the Republicans let us go off the fiscal cliff, that means their "no" vote turns out to be a vote to raise taxes on ...
I would like to speak out about the controversy concerning Christmas. There are individuals who want it banned and do not want crèches or Christmas trees and to say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."
It seems the Dec. 5 column submitted by Steve Lunetta, "Modification affects many properties," has several erroneous statements.
On a weekday, my 5,000-pound truck and I were making the turn from David Way, then left on Bouquet Canyon Road. Near Camp Scudder, I noticed a group of bicyclists on my right. They were in the bike lane and also on the roadway. I slowed and passed them.
In response to "Property owners face likely vote on new pollution fees," Dec. 5:
"A date which will live in infamy": Apparently, The Signal didn't agree! Not a mention on the front page? Nothing about the thousands of lives lost on that fateful day and the thousands lost during World War II.
You recently published the letter "Insurance freebies not so free" (Dec. 5) in which the writer closed with, "I guess those 'freebies' that were promised in the new health care law are not so free after all."
Although the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center is typically closed on Saturdays, it was the place to be on Dec. 8 as the Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival performed its interpretation of a Dickens classic for Santa Clarita Valley residents.
I believe that abortion should be deemed illegal in all 50 states. Aborting an unborn child should be considered as murder. Murder is defined as; the crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought. What makes killing an unborn baby different from killing an adult? When does a fetus' life begin?
At last week's regular meeting, the Santa Clarita City Council voted unanimously to endorse the Soledad Canyon Settlement Act introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer. This legislation defines a process by which the sale of excess federal land near Victorville would be sold to compensate Cemex for sand and gravel mining rights in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Obama and his minions are mired up to their eyeballs in scandals, what with Benghazigate, the IRS targeting of conservative groups for harassment, and the Justice Departments secret grab of Associated Press phone records, not to mention the lingering Operation Fast & Furious debacle.
I urge all drivers to contact the California Transportation Commission www.catc.ca.gov (and any local representative) to voice their disapproval of Assembly Bill AB 680, which gives private entities the right to charge drivers to use the highways they are already paying to build and maintain.
Once we have removed the excess chloride from our wastewater, are we just going to give the water away to the farmers in Ventura?
Concerning Jim Holt's article on teens dying in the SCV ("Sand Canyon residents remember youth killed at oak tree 32 years ago," May 8), I can understand his concern.
I just finished reading Gary Horton's column on victimhood. If I didn't know better I'd swear he suddenly became a Republican. His comments were spot on. In this age of blame the other guy for your own lack of responsibility, it's good to see that someone else gets it. Good job, Gary.
Thanks for hosting the Summer Meltdown. This is so important to the Yes I Can program. I witnessed a special moment that I will never forget. One of the Yes I Can students was withdrawn and another student was holding her arm around her. One female teachers from the Yes I Can program went up to her and held her in her arms for a good couple of minutes (just the kindest hug) as to say it's OK. Then the girl and friend went on their way,
The Boston bombing brought to light a very clever way of carrying out covert operations in another country. Our own CIA can learn from the Tsarnaev brothers on how to conduct an operation and have that country finance it for them.
Remember when that man, Rick Perry, came to California to promote and emphasize "that HIS state of Texas doesn't bother with pesky regulations on industry.
Not two weeks after "our" 13-year-old gay teen, Nigel Hardy,committed suicide in Palmdale from being bullied as his school's male cheerleader, the president of the board of "our" Hart School District, Joe Messina, brought a known (adult) bully of gays, Brad Dacus, of the ironically named www.pacificjustice.org, as the keynote speaker at "our" city's Mayor's Prayer Breakfast at the Hyatt Regency Valencia. Even after the AV teen's death, Dacus called for parents not to attend ...
I always enjoy a good chuckle on a Sunday morning, and the letter by Richard Myers today allowed me a good one.
I recently read Brian Baker's April 24 letter "On logic, liberated thinking and gun control."
