To The Editor: I have been sitting on the sidelines looking and listening to all sides, and it came to me - Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the Pied Piper!
To The Editor: You can definitely put me on the side of the room that is against more unnecessary taxes - the key word being "unnecessary."
To The Editor: Thanks and goodbye to officer Tommy Banks. Yes, I got a ticket on Soledad. But you know what ... I was speeding and it reminded me to slow down.
To The Editor: Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies spent a lot of officers' time and taxpayers' money during a recent weekend to arrest just three drunk drivers out of 916 cars stopped and inconvenienced at a DUI checkpoint ("DUI checkpoint in Valencia nets 4 arrests," March 30, 2008). That is a meager .33 percent success rate.
To The Editor: Congratulations and best wishes to SCV sheriff's Deputy John Thomas Banks on his retirement.
To The Editor: I have been following the reports over the last few months and am incensed that none of the plans offered by the Hart School District have included cutting the fat at the top. Why has there been no proposal for cutting the six-figure salaries in order to save some programs and teachers' jobs? I have no children at home now, but I am still taxed for the schools and am happy to ...
To The Editor: I was appalled to see Barack Obama on television recently trying to use racism to his political advantage. He stated that the most segregated place in America is the churches. It is incredible that he would stoop so low in an attempt to gain a political advantage. Certainly, many years ago, his statement was true, but the fact that it is no longer true is something that Americans can and should ...
To The Editor: To the voters: How many of you will be voting for a candidate who puts their poster board ads on public property and/or public right-of-ways? So much for following the letter of the law. Then there's the littering factor.
To The Editor: Hilarious! We loved the April 1 front page of The Signal! Now please cancel our subscription. April fools! Rock on.
To The Editor: Hi! I am a third-grade student at Castaic Elementary School and read about the "plans" for the new Castaic Lake High School (in the April fool's edition of The Signal). It sounds really cool!! Are you planning to put in boat docks for the students? I hope so because I will want one! I guess I will tell my mom and dad to buy me a boat and not a car when ...
To The Editor: Thank you so much for the clever parody in the April 1 edition of The Signal.
To The Editor: What a pleasant surprise! Every morning of my life, the L.A. Times has been on my front doorstep or driveway. I will always read The Times. I have subscribed to The Signal for my entertainment (and some local news). The entertainment has gone out of the Signal. In previous years, you could tell that the staff at The Signal was having fun. I enjoyed the "Christmas Light Caravan" issues, the Phony Parade ...
To The Editor: Well, it has been almost two months since the residents of Acton/Agua Dulce defeated yet another school bond measure, this one supposedly to build only a high school and the fourth attempt in the last six years.
To The Editor: It's stunning that The Signal continues to miss the story behind Laurie Ender's remarkable campaign to be elected to City Council on April 8. It's being funded and fueled in part by a group of people who have never donated or voted as part of a city election. A recent Santa Clarita blog posted that more than 200 "nobodies" recently showed up to her Family Day campaign rally on a Saturday ...
To The Editor: Please accept my apologies for this late letter. I am unusually busy as a single parent of four children since my wife, Audrey, died of cancer three years ago. Diane Trautman has assisted my family, especially my youngest of four children, Marisa, with much help, and I am deeply indebted to her. Diane has given my family and me much welcome and needed on-point advice. She has freely given of herself ...
Sure hoping we will have other options besides the birds for the traffic circle sculpture coming to Old Town Main Street area.
It comes by surprise. Bombs explode and people run; some are killed, hundreds are injured. Why? What is in the mind of men to do such things?
In his article of April 20 ("Setting a bad example"), Tim Myers posits a definition of a "geography" partisan and divides them into good, neutral and bad.
I am very concerned that our democracy does not work in the Senate.
Jonathan Kraut's "Blame the bombers and nothing else" (April 23) is right about one thing: the acts perpetrated by the alleged Boston Marathon bombers the Tsarnaev brothers; Newtown's Adam Lanza; and cop terrorist Christopher Darner were all seeded in hate.
Congratulations to Scott Wilk on his success in gaining the approval of the Higher Education Committee of the Assembly for AB 806.
I really have to wonder at what passes for thinking in liberals. In his column - or maybe "rant" would be more accurate - on Wednesday, Gary Horton goes on a wild spree of finger-pointing about the failure of new gun control legislation at the federal level.
When I think about what the American people wanted in regards to gun control and what their representatives in Congress did for them, only one word comes to mind: betrayed.
Although the average American can celebrate Tax Freedom Day on April 18, Californians must wait nearly a week longer - until April 24 - to join the celebration.
California's single-party supermajority in Sacramento continues to churn out bad bills, harming children and families in the Golden State.
After reading lots of negative letters from a group I call "The Angry Five," I have a very positive story to tell.
It seems that it is difficult for some people to react to good news and a positive theme, especially the one relating to alcoholism.
As is usual in his columns, Kevin Buck took some big liberties with the truth in his column "It's been a long and winding road" (April 16), in which he lauded Democrats for everything good in this country while blaming Republicans for everything bad.
Kim Jong-Un is the current leader of North Korea, and I believe whenever he has enough nuclear power to reach mainland America he shall do so.
