Democrats play politics on oil drilling

I e-mailed this letter to Senators Boxer and Feinstein. I also sent it to the Governor. The "political football" of drilling for oil wherever it is in the United States is a typical example of the cynicism of the left.

Don’t punish the children for Sacramento’s budget

I am writing in response to The Signal's July 11 story "County Frets Over Foster Freeze." California's foster children did not create our state's budget crisis and should not carry the burden of the failings of their elders. Balancing the budget on the backs of abused and neglected children flies in the face of our commitment to provide quality care for our state's most vulnerable citizens.

The heart of The Signal still beats

I wanted to compliment The Signal on its general improvement. The-Signal.com is especially impressive.

A raise for the entire staff of The Signal

I congratulate you on Monday, July 14's front page. The Signal senior and possibly the only weekend writer Jim Holt rules the front page.

Gay marriage threatens society’s foundation

I am responding to Don Gately's letter of July 17. Our society was founded on traditional values. Those values are a foundation that holds us together.

Choose to limit your consumption

Do I believe that government should impose restrictions on SUV owners for contributing to the oil scarcity problem by driving their gas-guzzling Leviathans? By all means, no.

Another urban center not needed in Santa Clarita

Being a resident directly next door to the Smiser Mule Ranch parcel, it grieves me that the city would even consider this an eligible site for an "urban center." In other words, another shopping center.

Cronyism apparently rife in local government

I am writing regarding the appointment of Frank Ferry's secretary to the parks commission. The only information we have been given regarding her abilities and background in parks and recreation is that she has been Mr. Ferry's secretary for the past number of years and seems to be good at that job.

A more holistic growth

I am writing this letter to show support for the master-planned expansion project at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. I side with the overwhelming majority of community leaders who support this project.

Party or country?

What has happened to our government? If I remember correctly, we are supposed to be for and by the people, not for the person who can raise the most money and make empty promises.

Budget affects Democrats and Republicans

I am writing to comment on Stephen Winkler's July 3 submission entitled "Budget Cuts" and the subsequent online response from a reader who dismissed Mr. Winkler's assessment that budget cuts are not a partisan or ideological issue because they impact all Californians, including our seniors and children.

What if all the beds at the hospital were full?

I am speaking from experience. I was driven to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in an ambulance about three weeks ago.

Swim lessons for special-needs kids

Thank you for the recent article about the many options for swimming lessons here in Santa Clarita ("The benefits of summer swim lessons," July 15).

Emergency vehicles have the right-of-way

I am appalled at the stupidity of drivers on the road. The vehicle code requires that when an emergency vehicle comes upon your car with sirens and/or lights flashing, to PULL TO THE RIGHT!

Let’s sue ‘em right back

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.

Time to overturn Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision

I just wanted to point out the need to overturn the Citizens United decision of the United States Supreme Court in 2010.

An open letter to the SCV Sheriff’s Station

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.

COC’s Board of Trustees is impotent to effect change

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.

Culture at COC needs healing

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.

Ah, if it were only possible

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."

O.J.: All about intercollegiate athletics

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.

COC needs to focus attention on the students

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).

Trading fiasco

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.

War on women

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.

COC needs to speak with honesty and fairness

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.

Bergdahl’s a deserter

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.
