Heads-Up for Heads Up

To The Editor:

As many of you are aware, on Feb. 16, the Jim Tindell Bowl-a-Thon for Heads Up was postponed. It was not a planned event and you could say that it was just rotten luck. The event was being hosted by the SCV-Newhall Optimist Club and there were over 80 people there ready to bowl.

Have Some Backbone

To The Editor:

It was amazing. At 6:30 on Tuesday morning, it was the sound of hysterical laughter as community members in Castaic read the Tuesday edition of the paper. The Hart School Board is going to do a survey to see if Castaic needs a new school or if another school might need a performing arts center.

Kids Need a Place to Skate

To The Editor:

I don't understand our city leaders and planning department. Why not build a new skate park before tearing down the old one? Our young people need a place to skateboard.

Boston's Talent Will Be Missed

To The Editor:

Apparently great writing talent and an incredibly subtle, witty sense of humor doesn't count at the "new" Signal. Who chased off Mr. Santa Clarita, John Boston? Was that a corporate smooth move or just one of those dumb things that big- city newspapers do when they don't know how to deal with a truly talented, award-winning member of the staff who helped build the newspaper to what it has become today?

McCain's Environmental Record

To The Editor:

I was appalled to lean that John McCain was the only senator who two weeks ago chose to skip a crucial vote on the future of clean energy in America - dooming the measure to fail by just a single vote.

Defeat of School Bond

To The Editor:

It has been awhile and we're still getting nasty letters and e-mails from the proponents of Measure V. They all seem to have the same theme: "You opponents of the school bond hate children, want them to go to shacks for schools, kick your dogs, etc." Or "Now that you've defeated the bond, what are you going to do for ME?"

Please Vet Stories

To The Editor:

Re: 'US Military Kills Iraqi Couple' (February 6, 2008): Why is The Signal so quick to indict our soldiers? Let's see the facts before you convict them of murder in a headline.

In Support of Farley

To The Editor:

The Santa Clarita City Council only chose and appointed pro-open space people to the open space oversight panel. What a surprise!

City of L.A. Right on Newhall Ranch

To The Editor:

Although I rarely agree with the position that the L.A. City Council takes on most issues, their stance on the Newhall Ranch project makes a lot of sense to me.

Missing John Boston

To The Editor:

How do you replace John Boston...They didn't make two of him! Santa Clarita has lost another piece of its individuality. We miss you John, and the fun you brought to all of us for all these years. The Signal is left with a huge hole and no one to fill it!

April 26, 2008 | By Roger and Becki Basham Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


Fibromyalgia Is Real

To The Editor:

Your Op Ed "The Controversy over Fibromyalgia" (Campos, Jan. 28, 2008) was very disconcerting. I've heard from many members of our local fibro support group and the comments were varied - disbelief, discouragement, anger.

April 26, 2008 | Karen Jeffries Co-Leader, Santa Clarita Valley Fibromyalgia Support Group | Letters to the Editor


Unadulterated Drivel

To The Editor:

Unadulterated drivel. How else does one describe the commentary "Huckabee Remarks Deserve Attention" by John Crisp (Feb. 21, 2008)? I am not sure what Mr. Crisp does in the English department at Del Mar College, but I certainly hope he is there as a student.

April 26, 2008 | Robert Heller Valencia | Letters to the Editor


Kudos to Dianne

To The Editor:

I was compelled to write after reading Dianne Erskine-Hellrigel's commentary in Thursday's Signal ("Quit Trashing Santa Clarita," Feb. 14, 2008). I want to reiterate her strong words and encourage everyone living in this still-beautiful valley to do what they can to help - whether it be picking up trash on our many trails and in our neighborhoods, or reporting illegal dumping and littering.

Talk of 'Change' is Cheap

To The Editor:

At the risk of sounding either not fully informed or just scared about how the media is depicting the voters, especially Clinton vs. Obama, I bring this to the table: Both proclaim "change" and "hope." Not all change is good, and it can be frustrating to continue hoping for the many kinds of change each American wants. No government can please everyone, but even in the name of "the kids" or "the next generation" we must try to discern what is intended to be changed - and how much it will cost us.

Goodbye, John Boston

To The Editor:

It really is sad to hear that one of the best darn story writers has left. I will certainly miss the "Time Ranger" and a lot of other readers will miss him as well. He has really kept the community in the know of the history of the SCV. My wife and I have always looked forward to his weekly columns and stories. JOHN, please reconsider. There is that gift of balance you have in making people smile and laugh when reading our local news.

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.

May 15, 2014 | William L. Blowers Newhall | Letters to the Editor


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.

May 14, 2014 | Judy Reinsma Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


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.

May 13, 2014 | Jeff Solomon Canyon Country | Letters to the Editor


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

In response to the letter to the editor "Wings for Life World Run disturbed the peace for 2 hours," published May 6, I urge John Annoreno to stop for a moment and think about the purpose of the Wings for Life World Run.

Ron Paul has got it wrong

Regarding the Ron Paul column published May 7 entitled "We're no longer number one": Sorry, congressman, you swallowed a distortion put out by the World Bank.

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.
