There is no need to travel to the (San Fernando) Valley for Transitional Care.
The staff at the Santa Clarita Convalescent Hospital are warm, loving and compassionate to their patients and visitors.
I am very thankful to Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon for introducing a bill that will protect the most beautiful wild places and rivers in the Eastern Sierra and Santa Clarita. Hiking on our locals trails and enjoying the beautiful scenery around me has made a great impact and difference in my life.
The governor's proposed cuts in the budget are downright appalling.
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.
With 50 years of experience in the research and development business, I have to disagree with Anne McFeatters' position that the decline in U.S. technological leadership is due to lack of government funding. Except in the military area, U.S. inventiveness has rarely been funded by the government. Think of Edison, Ford, the Wright Brothers and Silicon Valley.
I complained mightily about The Signal's Sports pages before. So now I'd like to make amends.
Caltrans needs to hire women to repair the potholes and cracks on the 5 freeway because the job the men have been doing is a joke!
I have been a resident of this valley for more than 32 years. We tried to develop the Rivendale/Towsley Canyon at that time, but regional planning - through the county - was less than eager to approve the development as the creek that runs through the canyon drains in excess of 4,000 acres.
We were there during an El Nino when the water that rushed through the creek was so strong that it carried heavy large boulders, storm drain pipes and other debris and deposited it on the flood plain - the Smiser Mule property.
Steve Lunetta wrote an Op-Ed article on June 2, 2008 on "How to Choose the Local Judges." In that article he states, "Please take the time to read and think about the judges you vote for."
More new hotels. Geez. They haven't even gotten around to putting mints on all the new pillows at the corner of the 5 and the 126. I was just wondering who's gonna stay in all these hotel rooms? Has Magic Mountain suddenly gained some new allure that I've missed? I doubt it.
There is no other reason to get off the freeway except to get gas.
I'm one of the "million fools" that Jonathan Kraut wrote of (June 3) who signed the petition to amend our state constitution so as to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The main reason our constitution must be amended this way is to protect our freedom of religion, which is one of the basic rights supposedly granted by our constitution and the primary reason this country was founded in the first place.
Santa Clarita may not be Phoenix, but it is a desert location ("Is this Phoenix or Santa Clarita?," Letters, May 29). "Cacti" would seem to be a natural choice for landscaping purposes.
Last night I attended a public meeting regarding traffic in our neighborhood. In response to some residents complaints regarding traffic in the area, Santa Clarita city staff had done numerous traffic counts, surveys, license plate checks, etc. In addition, new stop signs and speed signs had been added to mitigate the perceived problems along with an increased law enforcement presence. The meeting was to present the most recent survey data.
When city staff presented the data, they were verbally attacked by several very vocal and very angry neighbors, because the data did not lead to the conclusion they wanted. They ...
Where I choose to spend my money in Santa Clarita is a big deal to me. With so many places to shop, eat and use services in the SCV, I can go to about 100 different places for the same thing. This letter may seem like more of a rant, but I would also like to provide information to readers.
Merchants are not allowed to charge you an extra fee, service charge or set a minimum amount for purchases with credit cards. I find more and more businesses doing this, which specifically goes against Visa and MasterCard merchant agreements.
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.
Did anyone else note the TV newscast showing insurgents in Iraq opening the old bunker?
There's nothing wrong with Mr. Lunetta questioning and challenging the assertions of the REMI report that a revenue-neutral carbon fee would have positive economic benefits as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (June 26, "The carbon tax has flaws").
The State of Islam has been declared by ISIS or ISIL. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the leader of ISIS.
I want to give big kudos to the Santa Clarita City Council past and present, the city manager and everyone involved in making the city bike/walking/running trails the fantastic network they are today.
It's nice to see a positive article on the front page of The Signal about Shane Vereen ("Vereen brings it back," June 22).
Once again, Councilman Bob Kellar slams his constituents by saying that many who signed the petitions to overturn the council's decision to permit digital billboard on our freeways were not fully aware of the full details of the proposal ("Billboard matter will be put to a vote," www.signalscv.com).
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.
I just wanted to point out the need to overturn the Citizens United decision of the United States Supreme Court in 2010.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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).
