To The Editor: Mayor Bob Kellar is leadership in action, unequaled in his accomplishments by any others in the current race for City Council. Kellar's leadership has saved our valley from Cemex in Soledad Canyon. He long ago made safety a priority, leading Santa Clarita to the envied position as one of the safest cities in America. Bob's evident commitment to improve roads (most notably the cross-valley connector) and create more open space has already ...

To The Editor: In The Signal's March 22 article, "$380K Spent On Advice," it was pointed out that the Castaic Lake Water Agency "paid more for consultants in January than any other single expenditure outside of water received through the State Water Contract."
Michael Picarella, by his own admission, overflows with imagination. However, it is apparent from his "Easter Bunny" column that his abundance of imagination clearly overrides good judgment and common sense. In an attempt to instill a strong sense of imagination in his 4-year-old son, he bought a live "Easter Bunny" from the bunny ranch. Even after learning that bunnies are not the best pets for young children as they are sensitive and require a lot ...
To the Editor: I would like to thank you for Tammy Marashlian's March 15 insightful article about Moms in Touch in the Santa Clarita Valley. This prayer ministry, uniting moms in prayer for their children and their schools, is life-changing, both for our children and for us moms.

To The Editor: Attention, all those running for a seat on the City Council in the upcoming election: Any candidate who calls my phone with one of those intrusive, annoying, automatically-dialed, pre-recorded messages will NOT get my vote.
To The Editor: I support Laurie Ender in her candidacy for City Council. Laurie would make a wonderful addition to the council. She is an intelligent, hard-working and enthusiastic advocate for the people of Santa Clarita and has already left her caring touch on the lives of so many.

To The Editor: Do you want City Council candidates who have serious conflicts of interest or who get money from dubious sources known to misrepresent opponents with hit mailers? Obviously not. You do want council members who work hard, are accessible, have strong experience, are competent, and most of all, have integrity.
To The Editor: To Bob Kellar: you want us to vote for you, but you can't follow the printed instructions! Oh, those instructions must be for everyone else, not you.
To The Editor: Although I live in the unincorporated county area of the valley and cannot cast my vote in the City of Santa Clarita elections, I believe that voting is an effective tool to effect change and have a voice. I urge all residents to take a few minutes out of their day to vote for their candidate of choice. I feel each of the candidates has strong traits, however, I'm compelled to express my personal involvement with Diane Trautman.
To The Editor: I'm voting for Laurie Ender for City Council because of her commitment to the future of the city of Santa Clarita and to improving our quality of life here.
To The Editor: Maria Gutzeit is my choice. She has demonstrated she can get things done. She made roads safer by working with the county to widen them.
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.
