Veterans get slapped in the face!
This letter is written in agreement with the letter from Betty Arenson pertaining to the deaths of two otherwise fine men who recently died "An open letter to the city of Santa Clarita," Dec. 23).
I read Steve Lunetta's column concerning the "global warming" issue ("The Arctic is ice-free!" Dec. 23.) Lunetta nailed it.
I read Kevin Buck's column in The Signal ("Obama keeps calm," Dec. 10), and I simply have to respond.
Recently, The Signal published an article about an online petition with 800 signatures from the U.S., Argentina, Croatia, Kazakhstan, Poland and more to rename Hercules Street in Valencia to "Walker/Rodas Memorial Way."
President Obama has made it way too easy for me not to write about his behavior at Nelson Mandela's memorial.
I found Mayor Laurene Weste's five-column lecture and admonishment published Dec. 13 in The Signal ("'Tis the season to shop in Santa Clarita") interesting for those of us who live in Santa Clarita.
Congressmen like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul appear to rejoice at the thought of not passing legislation on unemployment benefits.
There is no causal link between abortion and breast cancer. Repeat as necessary.
I was in the Santa Clarita Post Office on Creekside Road twice within the past week.
"Opinions" about the link between abortion and breast cancer are cheap, especially when respondents can spout them in online forums, attacking others and their opinions with demeaning, snarky terms while hiding behind a "user name" or pseudonym.
I have never written or responded to a letter to the editor until now, but I cannot let Carole Lutness's "Republicans go after the poor" (Dec. 9) go without a response.
I appreciate the care being taken by our City Council in determining what should be the centerpiece of the Newhall roundabout.
Charlie Vignola opens his column Dec. 3 by writing: "Simply put, what I believe shouldn't affect you, and what you believe shouldn't affect me - period" ("Slippery slope for U.S.").
Regarding Gary Curtis's Dec. 6 letter to the editor, "Consequences of abortion": Words almost fail me, Mr. Curtis.
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."
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.
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).
Regarding the controversial release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, below are some of the responses of President Obama to this issue:
The latest assignment some sixth-grade students got in one of our local schools is "Atrocities committed by our troops in Vietnam."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Rocket Collins, 13 seasons as boys head basket coach at Valencia High School, has been relieved of his position.
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!
The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn't work in meeting certain essential societal needs.
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.
