Dear ladies and gentlemen concerned over the imminent start-up of the Monticello Preparatory School in Hasley Canyon:
The implications from Barack Obama's condemnation of John McCain's not knowing how many houses he owns are quite disturbing.
Kudos to the City Council! I applaud you for appointing Matt Halliday to a seat on the Parks, Recreation & Community Services Commission.
California is in trouble. Our deficit is enormous. We need to solve the budget issue, and we need to do it now.
I recently spoke on the phone with the fraud section at Air Tran Airlines. It seems someone is sending bogus e-mails with a virus attachment, claming that your Mastercard or Visa account has been charged ($600.87 in my case) for the online purchase of Air Tran or Continental Airline tickets. Do not open the attachment. The issue is just a virus ment to kill computers, possibly politically motivated. Talk about dirty tricks!
On Saturday, Aug. 16, at 11 a.m., at the Army recruiting station on Soledad Canyon Road, 11 (that's right - eleven) cars with U.S. government license plates were parked at the station.
Bush-bashing became major political convenience and the lazy man's pastime. Depending on which poll is cited, President Bush has an approval rating of 22 to 28 percent. Our Democrat-controlled Congress of nearly two years has an approval rating of 9 to 14 percent.
"I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree." Too bad our society seems to have lost its appreciation of trees. They're great for the environment. When I moved here in 1972 there was a marvelous oak tree in the middle of Lyons Avenue, said to be 400 years old. Then one day it was gone, removed, it was said, by Newhall Land and Farming Co. That was just the ...
"New private school upsets neighbors," The Signal, August 22. Zoning laws dictate that multiple families cannot live in a single-family home, yet during the day neighbors in that Castaic neighborhood must endure 100 kids. Imagine what Back to School Night will look like.
A new Newhall Library in Old Town Newhall sounds a bit oxymoronic, but it sure is the best idea I've heard in years.
First, I would like to thank Frank Ferry and Phil Lantis of City Hall, Bill Bolde of Saugus High, and the Olive Garden restaurant for their donations to my son and The Global Medical Brigade.
Imagine my surprise when I opened the paper and saw an opinion piece from Frank Arenson blaming liberals for the fear-mongering that has been happening over the past eight years with the Bush Administration.
Just a note regarding Mr. Osbornes' column on JJ DiLuigi. It was nice to have Cary back, if only for one column.
The Londoner pub in Canyon Country is known for being a community-oriented business. We have raised money and awareness for many local charities, including the Santa Clarita Domestic Violence Center, Yes I Can, and the American Cancer Society.
I was struck by the contrast of the two facing columns appearing on the front of the Opinion section in the Aug. 17 Signal.
Mark Twain was right, at least in California: "Whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting."
I guess it seemed like a festive idea to send dozens of colorful balloons into the sky to kick off the Hart vs. Valencia football game.
I wanted to express my disdain for Frank Ferry's attack on Cam Noltemyer and Marsha's, Laurene's and Bob's tacit approval of his despicable behavior.
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."
