Scrutinize Obama, not the plumber

I read the story that "Joe the Plumber" is not actually a licensed plumber. This guy asked a simple question and now he is being attacked.

Tim Myers is too offensive

As an independent still trying to decide, I try to read as many opinions as time allows.

Who's the racist in this argument?

Tim Myer's column (Oct. 19) would be positively breathtaking if it weren't so laughably predictable.

Anti-virus, Take 2

As a counterpoint to Joe Messina's answers to questions regarding anti-virus and e-mail, unfortunately Joe is recommending products he also sells and services.

On Saturday, Oct. 4, three local Boy Scouts, Jonathan Sprott, John Kasum and Benjamin Kasum were elevated to the rank of Eagle, becoming part of an elite group that has produced many great leaders.

Government charity starts at home

As we grow older, none of us can be certain we won't find ourselves at some point needing assistance to help us pay the rent, mortgage, utility bill, medical bill or some other bills that come up. Senior members among us are struggling to do just these things. Many are on fixed incomes. Others simply don't have the means to meet the basic needs.

Prop. 8 opponents intolerant?

For the second night in a row, our "Yes On Prop. 8" yard signs have been stolen from our front yard. I find it very hypocritical that the liberal groups that support gay marriage call people who vote for traditional family values "intolerant," when they themselves don't allow for free speech when it disagrees with their views.

Prop. 8 opponents oppose free speech

Wow! So this is where we are in our society? Last night my "Yes on 8" yard sign was stolen from my front yard. This doesn't surprise me, however, given the type of people that would not support Prop. 8. If Prop. 8 is defeated, then this is just a glimpse of the suppression of free speech to come. You can be sure that B. Hussein Obama and the rest of the "Dims" will try to further suppress the voice of those who stand for traditional values. To all the Christians out there, it's time to stop being ...

Save money with Measure S

When you vote, remember one of the most important local votes, Measure S. This will mandate removal of the "old-style" water softeners and will help homeowners and businesses avoid huge costs. Only about 10 percent of homes have not taken the rebates and keep the old softeners. Yet unless we remove these chloride pollution sources, we could be forced to install a "brine line" to the ocean. That is estimated to cost every home $500 more and an average business $2,000 more on the sewer portion of the property tax bills. This fee would be annual, and would apply ...

Marching bands

The indomitable Mr. Boston had me laughing out loud at the breakfast table. He must feel the same way about walking music the same way I feel about soccer and still you ruin half a sport page filling it up with that junk.

Choir performance

I had the pleasure recently of attending the Saugus High School choir concert. It was the winter performance, and what a performance!

City Council flip-flopped on Benz Road

In response to the Letter to the Editor titled "Kudos to the council" (Oct. 17, 2008): Sure. Kudos to the council for flip-flopping all over the place with the Benz neighborhood traffic problem.

Pit bulls are not people

I wasn't going to write, but the inane follow-up comments on the pit bull situation at Valencia High School have caused me to write.

Build the school, already

I think it is about time that the Hart district governing board is finally planning on selecting a site for Castaic high school.

Boston’s message

John Boston's Dec. 7, 2008, column "On Dirt Clods and an Acton Bullet" is not just interesting, entertaining and creative, but important and poignant.

Let’s sue ‘em right back

Our city and local school districts should sue Shenkman & Hughes to force the Malibu-based law firm to stop its suits alleging bias in our election process unless they can prove discrimination against minorities.

COC’s Board of Trustees is impotent to effect change

During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.

Culture at COC needs healing

Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.

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).

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.
