I have just finished reading Pat Saletore's article in the newsletter from the Santa Clarita Historical Society.
Congratulations to the Canyon High School JV football team for winning the Foothill League championship with a perfect undefeated league record of 5-0 and an overall record of eight wins and two losses.
At first, I was outraged that I should have to shut my trap at my child's soccer game. Indignant, I wondered "what's next?"
Regarding the front-page story entitled "School bond hits a roadblock," I have a few questions.
My wife and I moved from Burbank to the Hasley Canyon area five years ago. We had horses in our backyard in Burbank, Griffith Park with its equestrian trails and some deer and coyotes.
The tragedy (student suicide) at Vasquez High School filled me with sadness and anger. Anger because we don't simply have to watch as kids are brutalized day after day.
The following is a copy of a letter sent to Ken Pulskamp, Santa Clarita city manager:|
Santa Clarita is well-known for its fires. We have the Santa Ana winds that make the canyons and passes a big risk.
The mainstream media's slant on Gov. Sarah Palin is worse than shameful. The lady showed up for a job and was immediately debased and vulgarized beyond belief.
Churches are more involved in politics every election. It seems that a line continues to be crossed in the separation of church and state, much more so in the battle of Proposition 8.
Tom Pedersen's letter to the editor and cartoon (Nov. 16) were right on the mark. The Signal's editorial is a misguided encouragement of a master plan that is based upon erroneous assumptions. Mr. Seaver's pronouncement "that it is now or never" is an outright scare tactic with no basis in fact.
We woke up on Nov. 15 and were shocked to see a front-page photo of young man skating at the skate park without a helmet.
Regarding Proposition 8 and the lawsuits, if the minority is allowed to overrule the majority, then I want to start a "impeach Obama" campaign today.
I do not wish to take much of your time other than to inform you of the consequences if Proposition 8 fails.
Our city and local school districts should sue Shenkman & Hughes to force the Malibu-based law firm to stop its suits alleging bias in our election process unless they can prove discrimination against minorities.
I just wanted to point out the need to overturn the Citizens United decision of the United States Supreme Court in 2010.
On the rare occasion I see a sheriff's car in the area and can access the deputy, I thank them for their service and for driving my street, West Del Monte Drive.
During the recent Board of Trustees meeting at College of the Canyons, several board members expressed their surprise at the landslide "no" vote on the proposed full-time faculty contract.
Regarding the battle that is being fought on College of the Canyons' campus, I would like to take the opportunity to explain what the full-time faculty is seeking: equity and respect.
I read in The Signal where George H. W. Bush, father of the infamous George W. Bush, "celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday by making a tandem parachute jump."
In regards to all the recent 20-year anniversary of the O.J. case coverage, in my humble opinion, you did not have to watch one minute of the O.J. trial. All you had to understand was intercollegiate athletics.
I appreciate Jim Holt's presence at the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees meeting last Wednesday and his subsequent article, "COC showdown" (June 12).
Regarding the controversial release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, below are some of the responses of President Obama to this issue:
The latest assignment some sixth-grade students got in one of our local schools is "Atrocities committed by our troops in Vietnam."
The best description I have heard of the recent fiasco of trading prisoners is that we have exchanged five hand grenades for a squirt gun.
Daniel Wani, an American citizen living in New Hampshire, was not able to celebrate Father's Day with his wife and two tiny American children.
Jim Holt's June 10 article "COC faculty rejects contract" attempted to offer a fair view of the dissension that has developed between college administrators and the full-time faculty.
For many years, Lois Eisenberg has written awesome letters to the editor for The Signal. She combines great thinking and great writing in her letters to the editor.
In his column today (June 10) entitled "Charlie Vignola: G.O.P. smears P.O.W.", Vignola launches into his usual anti-conservative anti-GOP invective, this time over the Bergdahl affair. It's just more of Vignola's signature ranting.
