Mormons' opposition to gay marriage is hypocritical

On Sunday, June 29, a letter was read at all Mormon worship services worldwide calling on members to contribute their time and money to help pass the California initiative this November that would limit marriage to different-gender couples. The letter, from the Office of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said, "The Church's teaching and position on this moral issue are unequivocal. Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God." (Actually, the "State" did it before God did.)

An urban center by any other name still stinks

The Signal's apologetic approach (Signal editorial, June 27) to our city manager's goals, whether we call it urbanization or something else, seems to ignore the downsides of massive build-outs.

In response to Jim Mullen's article ("Why my father was no Tim Russert," June 25, 2008), first let me start off by offering my condolences for the loss of his father. He must be so very proud of him.

Media must tell whole story of Iraq surge

While statistics are fed to media outlets like this paper to prop up the administration's and Rep. Buck McKeon's decision to support the surge, the facts ignored are that the weekly rate of American wounded has not gone down. The historical wounded report is found at icasualties.org, and it shows that in 2008 the number of wounded soldiers averages approximately 15 per week, which is the same average as the year before.

The flourishing green movement at COC

Having been a College of the Canyons student for the past five years has provided me with enough insight to say that the youthful exuberance of COC's recent green movement is a more positive experience than having no politics at all.

Kudos for improved Signal sports section

There must be a new sports editor at The Signal because over the last few weeks it has offered broader coverage, consistency in layout, and no more front pages with only two or three fluff stories, even on weekends.

I just read Councilman Bob Kellar's "Blight of Billboards" in the Feb. 23 Opinion section of The Signal, wherein Mr. Kellar strongly endorses the idea of trading the removal of 118 billboards in the city for the installation of three large electronic billboards along Highway 14 and Interstate 5.

Let’s desalinize for all the water we need

I am in favor of desalinization plants up and down the coast of California. The governor needs to drop this train to nowhere and instead get on board with a new source of water.
