Another school year begins, and despite consistently rising gas prices and the latest war (Russia-Georgia), which in all likelihood is to secure future access to known oil supplies, there are still lots of folks who park and burn Texas Tea waiting to pick up their kids.
Your editorial cartoon comparing the U.S.S.R.'s 1968 invasion of Czechoslavakia and America's global war on terror in the Aug. 16 paper was not even fit to use as fish wrap.
I recently participated in a conference call/town hall forum with our local congressional representative "Buck" McKeon. I was one of many callers who got to listen in and vote on the issue of what to do about our oil crisis.
This is in response to an article I read in the Aug. 6, 2008, Signal titled "Online Marketing: You could do it, too!"
A few weeks ago I discovered Ken Keller's "Inside Business" column in your Wednesday edition of The Signal. I have to say, as a local businessman myself, that Ken's insights are sound, tried, and true.
What are the essential ingredients to successful governance?
I am writing to thank you and the assistant city editor, Katherine Geyer, for the ongoing coverage you have given the Smart Growth SCV struggle against the for-profit medical office buildings proposed on the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital site.
My husband and I have called Valencia our home for the past 10 years and have seen a lot of growth from the construction of new homes, new retail stores and a variety of restaurants.
A few random thoughts occurred to me while recapping various recent reports from local and national media.
We are more anxious than 94.4 percent of the people in Mexico and nine times more likely to experience anxiety than Chinese laborers.
It wasn't hard to miss a recent large, unflattering color photo of Cindy McCain, along with an equally unflattering commentary. Unknown to many of us, apparently there is some mandatory onus on Mrs. McCain, that should she become first lady she "must use her past drug addiction for the benefit the masses."
I just wanted to remind everyone there is still a problem at Newhall Ranch Road and McBean Parkway.
The recent revelation that G&L Realty contributed $30,000 to a committee that in turn spent $29,000 to support Laurie Ender's election (a vocal proponent of the hospital's growth plans) raises a question: Has big-city influence spending made its way big time to our small city?
I am always pleasantly surprised when I go to another fantastic production put on at the Canyon Theatre Guild.
Perhaps the most difficult task to make a financial living at is that of being a poet. Yet, if one is great enough and has a measure of luck - like Maya Angelou - it is not impossible.

A couple of years ago, when local officials said to cut down on the use of water, the wife and I bought a new dishwasher and a new washing machine that use less water.
I would be less troubled with the vilification of Donald Sterling if the popular press, including printed and electronic media, were as aggressive in the treatment of prominent blacks, including sports figures, when they make blatantly racist statements about whites.
Pastor Hegg's Sunday column "We don't have to think alike," is, as usual, rooted in fair-mindedness as he supports actions being legislated against, but not simply words.

In response to John Annoreno's letter to the editor "Wings for Life World Run disturbed the peace for 2 hours," published May 6, I participated in the Wings for Life World Run and I found it to be an incredibly inspirational experience.
In response to the letter to the editor "Wings for Life World Run disturbed the peace for 2 hours," published May 6, I urge John Annoreno to stop for a moment and think about the purpose of the Wings for Life World Run.
Regarding the Ron Paul column published May 7 entitled "We're no longer number one": Sorry, congressman, you swallowed a distortion put out by the World Bank.
Regarding the May 5 column "The Sterling Dilemma" by Steve Lunetta, racism and bigotry in this country have been prevalent since the America's inception.
