Regarding the parking situation at Concerts in the Park:
The House of Representatives bailed out Wall Street and others with billions of dollars.
I want to commend Gary Horton on an excellent column on Oct. 1. I actually found myself agreeing with the man.
There are few people in this community who do not want expansion of Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.
After one reading of Laurie Levine's letter to the editor on Dec. 2, 2008, I must say: "Chill, Laurie, chill."
As economy woes continue to affect the lives of so many people, it has become very difficult for nonprofits to raise money.
In addition to the bailout plan for Wall Street, there should be a bailout plan for Sarah Palin. Maybe "God has a plan" for Sarah?
This is my view of the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital master plan process and can thus be challenged, but I would ask those who know of me to consider my knowledge and credibility in comparison to those who dispute it.
As you move to rid the Juvenile Court Schools of their mission to teach the probation students, you need to actually come over to the camps and halls and see that education by qualified teachers is taking place.
Reading the Dec. 12, 2008, Signal, I am recalling John Boston lamenting politically correct zealots who attack Thanksgiving and the mere mention of "Christmas" in a column he called "Claremont's Jews and Friendly Nazis."
We are responding to Richard Oster's opinion letter of Oct. 2 regarding the Benz Road traffic problem.
I was outraged on many levels by the "tabloid" journalism The Signal used in its article on Tia Torres and her pit bulls visiting Valencia High School.
Regarding the article on the front page Thursday, Dec. 11, 2008: While Mr. Herrera may have made a mistake, so also did Mr. Armbruster.
Not only am I disturbed by this article, but I'm more disturbed that The Signal would actually publish the article titled "Flag mistake fuels anger" (Dec. 11, 2008). All this does is encourage the ignorant to voice their quick-mouthed, half-witted opinions.
I may be only 22 years of age, but when my parents raised me, they taught me how to respect another human being.
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.
Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.
Let's stipulate that both sides of the political spectrum want the best for others (a fair assumption, especially since both sides insist that is so).
As Hillary Clinton prepares for her Democratic coronation as the next Democratic presidential candidate, she's decided to try dealing with the inconvenience of the Benghazi tragedy through her new book.
Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.
Perhaps the most difficult task to make a financial living at is that of being a poet. Yet, if one is great enough and has a measure of luck - like Maya Angelou - it is not impossible.
I read with interest the article in the May 26 issue of The Signal ("Pavley's bill would change charter school law") about the bill introduced by California Sen. Fran Pavley regarding charter schools.
Historically we are a violent people and mankind's history throughout the world demonstrates that we are violent. Laws passed protect us all from violence. But laws alone can't eliminate violence.
In Charlie Vignola's column ("Sensible about gun control," May 20) Vignola is basically making the intellectually flaccid argument that guns cause their own misuse.
Why do we not get fine films out here in SCV?
I have been reading the arguments in the letters to the editor section for this past week relating to Donald Sterling and his racist comments.
In The Signal there was a letter from Lois Eisenberg, responding to a column by Steve Lunetta in which he discussed Donald Sterling's racist rant and its consequences to Sterling.
A couple of years ago, when local officials said to cut down on the use of water, the wife and I bought a new dishwasher and a new washing machine that use less water.
I would be less troubled with the vilification of Donald Sterling if the popular press, including printed and electronic media, were as aggressive in the treatment of prominent blacks, including sports figures, when they make blatantly racist statements about whites.
