Recently I watched as our president stood at the podium on the patio of the White House and announced his decision to seek congressional approval before unleashing military action against Syria.
If you question New York City's Stop and Frisk policies, you might consider the constitutionality of Santa Clarita's DUI checkpoints. What justification is there for stopping over a thousand cars when there is absolutely no reasonable cause? Just because we have a federal grant, Do we have to spend taxpayer money to cite a single DUI? Some may argue that it takes just one drunk to run over a child, but I'd ask what percentage ...
Our President Barack Obama is asking the Congress' vote. It's legitimate. If we have the proof that Syria killed children and adults with chemical weapons don't we have to intervene? I understand this time France would be our ally if we decide to save lives.
The following confession of a previously skinny kid is offered for the benefit of all your male readers who are approaching your senior years.
Let's start off this letter to the editor by not calling it a complaint but a way to solve a problem.
Well, he did it! California Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed a pro-transgender law - prepared, promoted and passed in the Californian Legislature solely by Democrats - that tramples parents' rights, denies sexual boundaries and invades personal privacy.
The plethora of gun control bills being proposed in the California Assembly and Senate would likely trouble even most liberal Democrats.
This month brought a close to the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Ramadan is marked by 30 days of fasting for Muslims from dawn to dusk and culminates with a day of celebration and festivity known as Eid-ul-Fitr. However, the Quran states that fasting is not a new phenomenon in the religion of Islam, but has had prescription in earlier religions too.

Regarding Dick Cesaroni's letter to the editor "Major League Baseball and its discipline," published Aug. 13: Pete Rose made much more than a few bets while managing the Reds. He bet on 52 games over the course of the 1985, '86 and '87 seasons - at a minimum of $10,000 per game on the Reds.
I realize the person writing the news story does not usually write the headlines for their story. However, on Aug. 10, Luke Money wrote an article about kids posting a picture of the cover of their Star Test booklets, but the headline read "Students post test answers" (A1).
For some time I have been thinking about writing to the opinion page in The Signal. I have many things I want to say but must consider economy of words.
My favorite American is the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I think that he was equally as wise as all of the other great Americans, but he was much braver than they.
Re: The Signal's Aug. 7 story "Water official: SCV difficult." What? One of the biggest items facing Santa Clarita Valley residents and businesses is the chloride issue, and there was a meeting with members of the Los Angeles Regional Quality Control Board and only a handful of people knew about it? It was so under wraps even The Signal wasn't told, so it had to report after the fact. Water Quality Control Board member Fran ...
This is a time when a great many Americans across the country are so unhappy with the goings-on of our representatives in Washington that the thinking for the coming elections is, "Throw the rascals out" and "Let's give the incumbents their walking papers."
Jim Holt's account of a deadly collision between truck and bicycle on Oct. 30 ("Bicyclist Killed In SCV Collision") was outrageous in its indictment of the dead cyclist as having done everything wrong, essentially reporting that it was all the cyclist's fault.
Regarding "Halloween church event draws 13,000," The Signal Oct. 27: Real Life Church, which claims to "really care about the community," continues to infringe upon that same community - at least the neighborhoods that are immediately adjacent to it.
I would like to address the Newhall Roundabout. I am a 15 year old who resides in Valencia. I have lived here all my life. My mom has lived here her entire life and her parents still reside in the house she grew up in. My roots are pretty deep in this town.
If I were to ask anyone what the toughest branch of the military is, NINE times out of 10 they would answer "The Marines." That's right, leathernecks. First in and last out. The branch you call on when the going gets tough.
In regards to "Woman injured in collision at Decoro and McBean" on The Signal's website, I have submitted many letters to the editor to The Signal expressing concerns about the hazards and safety factors in this city.
We are throwing away a precious resource: water. We pay to import water from the north, but the treated wastewater we discharge is free to our downstream neighbors.
Dear President Obama,
I have just two questions:
Wow, when I read over the sample ballot and found the man I felt would uphold rights over wrongs, I put my vote next to his name.
Frank Ferry's recent mea culpa for admittedly being "brash and abrasive" was short lived.
British singer Charlotte Church says young female pop stars are pressured by industry bosses to wear inappropriate clothes and "coerced into sexually demonstrative behavior in order to hold on to their careers."
We support Councilman TimBen Boydston's calling the Santa Clarita City Council's attention to its established and accepted rules of conduct Tuesday Oct. 22, 2013.
