Forget Friday, bring back the Sunday TV guide

The Signal has always had the BEST TV guide weekly, and it was in the Sunday edition.

For some reason, you changed it to Friday, and it stinks. Friday to Friday.

Planning for growth

Upon reading The Signal's recent article declaring city planners expect SCV's growth to expand to 500,000 people, I first thought, "Wow! How could our traffic infrastructure possibly handle that?"

Kudos for preserving wilderness

As a long time resident of Santa Clarita, I was pleased to see that 13,700 acres of our local Magic Mountain and seven miles of wild and scenic Piru Creek were included in Congressman Buck McKeon's and Senator Barbara Boxer's wonderful bipartisan wilderness bill for the Eastern Sierra and Northern San Gabriel Mountains ("McKeon bill protects 42,000 acres," May 30, 2008).

Not that I wasn't also excited that this bill will protect more than 430,000 acres of pristine mountain ranges and ancient forests in the Eastern Sierra, as well as the Owens River Headwaters ...

Bush’s ratings reflect our culture

President Bush's dismal approval rating is not so much a commentary on his job performance as it is an accurate commentary on our self-absorbed, spoiled society.
