To The Editor: I've been enjoying The Signal's Web site. Really terrific. Sharon Cotal recently wrote an article about our school ("Christian high schools offer options," April 14, 2008), and it was fun to see it not only on the front page but also up on the Web site.
After 24 years, I am amazed, sad and disgusted about the changes that have been going on with The Signal over the last several months. Where is The Signal, our local paper? Instead of a paper whose articles should be about what's happening in the SCV, I get a mess of here, there and everywhere. I will be changing papers when my subscription expires.
To The Editor: That was a great piece on Melody Ranch ("Down on Main Street at Melody Ranch," "A Closer Look," April 20, 2008 by Stephen K. Peeples, Signal Online Editor). I always learn something new about that place.
To The Editor: I am writing to express my disappointment in the recycling system that is in effect this year. We have
To The Editor: America is fortunate that both the Democratic and Republican candidates are extremely qualified for the
Recently two local Republicans announced they would be writing commentaries for The Signal in addition to Monday's "Right Her Right Now." These two men, Steve Lunetta and Paul Strickland, have different styles but both write excellent commentaries. The news of their more frequent submissions is gratifying on a couple of fronts. One, The Signal is pretty much dominated by the left six days out of seven (nationally and locally) and two, Messrs. Lunetta and Strickland ...
To The Editor: It is fair to say that I was extremely disappointed in the results of the recent local election to fill two empty seats on the Santa Clarita City Council.
To The Editor: Once Maria Gutzeit was endorsed by liberal Gary Horton, she never had a chance to win.
To The Editor: I couldn't agree more with Dave McEachern (April 15). We can do more for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. Indeed, we should have no tolerance for bullying and name-calling.
To The Editor: It's truly sad that columnists like Mr. Lunetta perpetuate false arguments on subjects as important as national security.
To The Editor: I am reminded on a daily basis what an amazing place Santa Clarita is to live and raise a family. Every time I drive by a local, award-winning school, every time I shop at the ever-improving mall or eat at an excellent restaurant, and every time I meet a new, friendly community member, I am reminded that Santa Clarita is the most amazing place around! Today was a day that, more than ...
To The Editor: Now that the City Council election is over, I sure hope that all those who ran will remove all of the signs they have placed on almost every street corner.
To The Editor: I use vote-by-mail. I got the information from my mailbox, read it all carefully and mailed the ballot back within a few days.
To The Editor: I was initially not amused by Pat Bagley's cartoon this morning (April 9, 2008) representing Charlton Heston as a gun-waving nut outside the gates of heaven. However, after ruminating on this for a bit I thought, well, actually, his NRA participation was presented by the media as defining the man in his later life.
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!
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."
