Thanks for Escape Theatre's 'Oliver'

To The Editor:

Many of you may have seen Escape Theatre's wonderful production of "Oliver" at Hart High on Feb. 1 through Feb. 3. But what you didn't see was the incredible amount of work and the months of dedication and sacrifice that Kyle and Elizabeth Burson and all others directly involved in producing the show went through.

Profiling in the SCV

To The Editor:

If you talk to just about anyone in this town they are likely to tell you that Santa Clarita is a great place to raise a family. I definitely agree that this is a very safe town, but I must tell you that this is a horrible place to live if you happen to be between the ages of 13 and 35. I can not begin to tell you how many times I have been harassed because of my age. From the Sheriff's Department to some of the business owners, we seem to have a huge ...

MRF Zoning Contradiction

To The Editor:

I attended the City Council candidate debate on Feb. 27 at the Senior Center. I would like to correct an important misstatement that candidate Diane Trautman, currently a city planning commissioner, made when asked if she would support a MRF at the latest proposed site: 75.11 acres on the east side of Sierra Highway, just north of Placerita Canyon Road, between Sierra Highway and Highway 14.

Boston's Talent Wasted

To The Editor:

Having lived in the SCV and been a subscriber to the Signal since 1973, I am very familiar with John Boston. Some of his writing was witty and brilliant.

Missing John Boston

To The Editor:

I don't know why The Signal parted company with John Boston, but now something is missing.

Troops in Iraq for the Wrong Reasons

To The Editor:

My only disagreement with Mr. Colman's letter ("Please Vet Stories," Feb. 24, 2008) is this perpetuated myth that our servicemen fighting in Iraq are there "risking their lives in Iraq for our freedom." There are a lot of reasons why we're there, but "our freedom" isn't one of them.

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.

Bergdahl and Obama deserve the same cell

Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.

The best for others, in 2 flavors

Let's stipulate that both sides of the political spectrum want the best for others (a fair assumption, especially since both sides insist that is so).

Hillary’s sad Benghazi strategy

As Hillary Clinton prepares for her Democratic coronation as the next Democratic presidential candidate, she's decided to try dealing with the inconvenience of the Benghazi tragedy through her new book.

Pitch in and keep our valley beautiful

Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.

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.

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.

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?

Hold yourself to a higher standard

I have been reading the arguments in the letters to the editor section for this past week relating to Donald Sterling and his racist comments.

May 18, 2014 | John Kiernan Valencia | Letters to the Editor


What about the black racists and bigots?

In The Signal there was a letter from Lois Eisenberg, responding to a column by Steve Lunetta in which he discussed Donald Sterling's racist rant and its consequences to Sterling.

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.

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.
