Tim Russert was one in a million

Tim Russert's sudden death is sad for his family, his friends, and his many colleagues, but it is us, the viewers, who should mourn this loss as well.

So many knew he represented unbiased reporting of the issues, especially around election time, and we will now have to work harder to replace what we had come to rely on without question.

City manager responds to development issues

Growth and development have long been major issues for residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. In fact, these issues are key reasons why residents chose to incorporate in the 1980s. Cityhood in 1987 brought local home rule to the four communities of Saugus, Newhall, Valencia and Canyon Country. It enabled the new local government to retain millions every year in tax dollars, 100 percent of which are spent right here in Santa Clarita on roads, parks, transportation, law enforcement, community services, infrastructure, trails and other amenities residents have expressed a desire to bring to our community.

Kopp should apologize to Tick Canyon residents

Gail Kopp owes me and the thousands of other residents of Tick Canyon an apology for referring to our community as "a dump" ("Park Place to be built in Tick Canyon," June 6, 2008). I assure you I have no discarded tires on my block.

Pining for the days of millionaires and moonshine

Have you noticed that our lifestyle is changing at a fast pace? Today's millionaires are nowhere near as well-off as yesterday's were.

Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day. They are looking forward to the day their wife retires so they can "get out of Dodge," and possibly buy a few acres of land so they can grow their own food and have a windmill which generates power to pump their own water and supply the electrical needs.

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?"

Building industry leads in water quality technology

Much has been made of the defeat of Assembly Bill 2046, which included a provision precluding water suppliers from relying on groundwater that did not meet applicable state standards when assessing their water supply.

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 ...

United States must end reliance on gasoline

Lynne Plambeck, Tom Purcell and Buck McKeon have all sounded off about the rising cost of gasoline.

I've been studying this problem for many years, since it is obvious that oil is a finite resource. It's not going to last forever.

A little respect, please

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.
