I would like the public to know that it is getting a rough deal in the shipping and handling the post office is giving to the public.

Gay marriage: It’s time to give up witch hunts

I'm a straight, married man who doesn't worry about what other folks are doing. A wise state legislator recently remarked that with the war on terrorism, the economy, the collapse of the housing market and the high price of gasoline, he had more important things to worry about than gays getting married. I concur.

What about the rest of Canyon Country?

Let me begin by saying that I used to attend the so-called "Canyon Country" Community Action Committee meetings. I stopped going because it seemed to several of us at these meetings that it was all about the Whites Canyon area, except when they wanted to complain about signage at shopping centers or a particular business.

Subregions deserve their share of funds

A Los Angeles Times editorial accused county Supervisor Gloria Molina of being "parochial" and an "obstructionist" because she advocates for protecting the regional distribution of revenue under the proposed sales tax measure.

State should have taken on Blue Cross

On July 4, I read an article in The Signal titled "State feared insurance big guns." In summary, the article stated that Anthem Blue Cross had the largest number of rescissions "about 1,770" between January 1, 2004, and now. Having read this article, I turned a bright shade of purple. There is nothing that can destroy a family faster than to have their health insurance cancelled. Although the article does not say, I assume these were most likely individual insurance policies and not group policies.

Will the real urban center please stand up?

There has been a lot of talk generated over the term "urban center" - did our city manager say he wants to turn our suburban bedroom community into a legitimate urban center of its own, or was he incorrectly paraphrased?

Urban centers should first do no harm

The first rule of "urban centers" should be a line from the Hippocratic Oath: "First of all, do no harm."

Let’s take control of the price of oil

I wonder what would happen if President Bush decided to sell a lot of the oil that he has in our reserves, say, for $75 per barrel. Just what would the buyers of futures in oil do? Maybe lose a lot of money?

Same-sex marriage ruling means fairness for all

In the past month I've read many opinions about why same-sex marriage threatens the institution of marriage. Frankly, I'm baffled.

Don’t get scammed

Correction: The following letter to the editor is being repeated because the wrong name of the writer was printed at the bottom of the letter when it was originally published on Wednesday. Albert Bigelow did not write this letter. The correct letter writer's name appears today.

A little respect, please

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.

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.
