Election recap

To The Editor:

Once Maria Gutzeit was endorsed by liberal Gary Horton, she never had a chance to win.

June 19, 2008 | By Ken Wheeler Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


Hart is trying hard

To The Editor:

I couldn't agree more with Dave McEachern (April 15). We can do more for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. Indeed, we should have no tolerance for bullying and name-calling.

June 19, 2008 | By Linda Margulies Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


Lunetta's case is weak

To The Editor:

It's truly sad that columnists like Mr. Lunetta perpetuate false arguments on subjects as important as national security.

A happy homecoming

Time to take down campaign signs

To The Editor:

Now that the City Council election is over, I sure hope that all those who ran will remove all of the signs they have placed on almost every street corner.

Vote-by-mail ballots sent too early

To The Editor:

I use vote-by-mail. I got the information from my mailbox, read it all carefully and mailed the ballot back within a few days.

A sense of propriety, or maybe not

To The Editor:

I was initially not amused by Pat Bagley's cartoon this morning (April 9, 2008) representing Charlton Heston as a gun-waving nut outside the gates of heaven. However, after ruminating on this for a bit I thought, well, actually, his NRA participation was presented by the media as defining the man in his later life.

Is Obama the pied piper?

To The Editor:

I have been sitting on the sidelines looking and listening to all sides, and it came to me - Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the Pied Piper!

Vehicle tax is necessary

To The Editor:

You can definitely put me on the side of the room that is against more unnecessary taxes - the key word being "unnecessary."

June 11, 2008 | By William Picketts Sr. Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Laws should be enforced

To The Editor:

Thanks and goodbye to officer Tommy Banks. Yes, I got a ticket on Soledad. But you know what ... I was speeding and it reminded me to slow down.

DUI checks ineffective

To The Editor:

Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies spent a lot of officers' time and taxpayers' money during a recent weekend to arrest just three drunk drivers out of 916 cars stopped and inconvenienced at a DUI checkpoint ("DUI checkpoint in Valencia nets 4 arrests," March 30, 2008). That is a meager .33 percent success rate.

A salute to Maya Angelou

Perhaps the most difficult task to make a financial living at is that of being a poet. Yet, if one is great enough and has a measure of luck - like Maya Angelou - it is not impossible.

June 02, 2014 | Robert W. Burton Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


Concerning our local charter schools

I read with interest the article in the May 26 issue of The Signal ("Pavley's bill would change charter school law") about the bill introduced by California Sen. Fran Pavley regarding charter schools.

Violence in America

Historically we are a violent people and mankind's history throughout the world demonstrates that we are violent. Laws passed protect us all from violence. But laws alone can't eliminate violence.

May 27, 2014 | Dana L. Stern Sr. Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


Look at Switzerland

In Charlie Vignola's column ("Sensible about gun control," May 20) Vignola is basically making the intellectually flaccid argument that guns cause their own misuse.

Lousy films in SCV

Why do we not get fine films out here in SCV?

Cutting back on water use

A couple of years ago, when local officials said to cut down on the use of water, the wife and I bought a new dishwasher and a new washing machine that use less water.

May 15, 2014 | Carl A. Woerter Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Vilification of Sterling

I would be less troubled with the vilification of Donald Sterling if the popular press, including printed and electronic media, were as aggressive in the treatment of prominent blacks, including sports figures, when they make blatantly racist statements about whites.

Freedom of speech needs some curbs

Pastor Hegg's Sunday column "We don't have to think alike," is, as usual, rooted in fair-mindedness as he supports actions being legislated against, but not simply words.

May 14, 2014 | By Robert W. Burton Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


Sliding down the slippery slope of speech sanctions

Pastor Hegg's column published in The Signal May 11, "We don't have to think alike," beautifully states my own concerns about the current situations when what people say is being used to destroy them financially and socially.

Kudos to city for sponsoring Wings for Life World Run

In response to John Annoreno's letter to the editor "Wings for Life World Run disturbed the peace for 2 hours," published May 6, I participated in the Wings for Life World Run and I found it to be an incredibly inspirational experience.

Those disturbed by World Run can give up a little sleep and help out

Racism needs to be untaught in America

Regarding the May 5 column "The Sterling Dilemma" by Steve Lunetta, racism and bigotry in this country have been prevalent since the America's inception.
