Well, where is she?

I have one question for John McCain: If Sarah Palin is "absolutely ready," as you claim, to be vice president or president right now, then why has she been hiding from American voters?

Benz neighborhood part of problem and solution

I read yet another article in The Signal about the "Benz neighborhood" and how the traffic problems have "pitted neighbors against each other."

The SCV Food Pantry needs your help

As the executive director of the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry, we've seen many more families hurting this year than ever before - local families struggling to put food on the table and senior citizens forced to make the decision whether to purchase their prescribed medications or food they need each month.

Educators must have a voice in matters

In response to the article "Mixed emotions over charter idea" (Dec. 1), the Board of Supervisors in its zeal to install charter schools has simply dismissed the highly professional education staff of the Los Angeles County Office of Education.

Rape and punishment

If an American citizen is convicted of rape, his punishment is severe, possibly even life in prison. Why, then, should alleged rapist Adrian Arriano be deported (for the third time) if he is convicted?

Love that TV image

Neil Postman, author of "Amusing Ourselves to Death," offers a prophetic voice when he says that television politics offers its viewers a compelling image of themselves in a particular candidate.

Hey, Detroit, how about some creativity?

Instead of a total bailout for the Detroit Three, what about making it attractive for prospective car buyers to buy an American-made vehicle?

The health care threat

Lack of creativity, not lack of money, is threatening health care coverage for more than 160,000 children. Like most of the state's health-care safety net, California's Healthy Families program for uninsured children in low-income families is facing the budget ax.

Take time to do the bailout right

Isn't it interesting that regulation and oversight were fighting words for the investment houses, until they stopped making huge profits. Then, when the marketplace started working and their short-sighted risky business practices caught up with their bottom line, they want to be bailed out even before they straighten out their own shops!

Palin in 2012

In the far-right's non-reality-based universe - in which logic was entirely abandoned in lieu of whatever reality the Rovian twisters deemed essential - they are already attacking a popularly elected president-elect before he has spent a minute in the Oval Office.

Conserving water

I was thinking: Why do we have to cut down on our water usage by 20 percent while the city tears up the center dividers and plants more trees, flowers and bushes?

Wilk goes against voter wants

I received correspondence from Scott Wilk recently saying why he didn't support SB 27, which requires nonprofit organizations to disclose the names, addresses and employers of donors of $1,000 or more when their funds are used to make contributions or expenditures of more than $50,000 in any one year, or more than $100,000 over four years.

Billboards and the need for speed

I just read Councilman Bob Kellar's "Blight of Billboards" in the Feb. 23 Opinion section of The Signal, wherein Mr. Kellar strongly endorses the idea of trading the removal of 118 billboards in the city for the installation of three large electronic billboards along Highway 14 and Interstate 5.

Let’s desalinize for all the water we need

I am in favor of desalinization plants up and down the coast of California. The governor needs to drop this train to nowhere and instead get on board with a new source of water.
