The Powerhouse Fire that burned more than 30,000 acres is the latest of more than 680 California wildfires this year - about 200 more than average for this early in the season.
Well, your federal government is spending money that it does not have again. The bill S.771 proposed by senators Boxer and Feinstein would have the BLM sell off public lands in the Victorville area. The money from that sale would be used to buy Cemex's mining rights in Soledad Canyon. If not enough money is raised from the sale of the public lands, guess who is ...

Did you know that there is a professional men's futbol team in the Santa Clarita Valley? A legitamite NPSL (National Premier Soccer League) team that gives striving youth players in and around the Santa Clarita Valley an opportunity to play very competitive futbol?
The latest round of the California Senate's and Assembly's passing of the most restrictive gun control legislation ever is a deviation so far removed from American principles and the protections guaranteed by the United States Constitution that it seriously makes a straight-thinking and responsible citizen believe we no longer live in America. One of the bills already half way approved to becoming law would require all weapons to be locked up in safes or ...
In her column "Truth Floats despite tyranny on the Potomac" (The Signal, May 28), Susan Stamper Brown was right that allegations of high-level criminal activity can bring down a government.

We have some questions about Benghazi and administration policies to ask of President Barack Obama and our fellow Americans:
If you ever get bored with mindless television or electronic games, try exercising your brain and watch for the many ironies in the media. Some are humorous and some are serious but you will always shake your head. Here's a few. Just in case a girl (even if she is but 12 years old) finds herself dismayed after having unprotected sex, she can now buy ...
My hat is off to teacher Monica Ratliff. With small campaign funds and an abundance of "common-sense" rhetoric, she defeated a strong favorite for a Los Angeles school board win.
When we read the Saugus Class of 2013 ad in the 5/24/2013 edition, and heard the enthusiastic cheers for the graduates at COC last Thursday night, our hearts were warmed. As the parents of three Saugus High grads, we salute the teachers and administration of all William S. Hart District schools, and all SCV elementary school districts. Our sons have gone on to be a VP of finance for ...
Hurray for Mr. Petzold's letter "Cemex bill would cost us millions") (May 24) about the millions more the city is going to spend on the Cemex deal.
I read Tina Dupuy's column "Apple could pay for Moore - and more" (May 28) and was frankly pretty amazed at the lack of intellectual consistency in it, though I probably shouldn't have been, given all the recent histrionics from the Left.
I just read Betty Arensons' May 24 column, "Where is the outrage?" wherein she describes all the recent and many of the past scandals attributed to this administration and wonders why there is not more public outrage.
Mark Twain was right, at least in California: "Whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting."
I guess it seemed like a festive idea to send dozens of colorful balloons into the sky to kick off the Hart vs. Valencia football game.
I wanted to express my disdain for Frank Ferry's attack on Cam Noltemyer and Marsha's, Laurene's and Bob's tacit approval of his despicable behavior.
This is a time when a great many Americans across the country are so unhappy with the goings-on of our representatives in Washington that the thinking for the coming elections is, "Throw the rascals out" and "Let's give the incumbents their walking papers."
Jim Holt's account of a deadly collision between truck and bicycle on Oct. 30 ("Bicyclist Killed In SCV Collision") was outrageous in its indictment of the dead cyclist as having done everything wrong, essentially reporting that it was all the cyclist's fault.
Regarding "Halloween church event draws 13,000," The Signal Oct. 27: Real Life Church, which claims to "really care about the community," continues to infringe upon that same community - at least the neighborhoods that are immediately adjacent to it.
I would like to address the Newhall Roundabout. I am a 15 year old who resides in Valencia. I have lived here all my life. My mom has lived here her entire life and her parents still reside in the house she grew up in. My roots are pretty deep in this town.
If I were to ask anyone what the toughest branch of the military is, NINE times out of 10 they would answer "The Marines." That's right, leathernecks. First in and last out. The branch you call on when the going gets tough.
In regards to "Woman injured in collision at Decoro and McBean" on The Signal's website, I have submitted many letters to the editor to The Signal expressing concerns about the hazards and safety factors in this city.
We are throwing away a precious resource: water. We pay to import water from the north, but the treated wastewater we discharge is free to our downstream neighbors.
Dear President Obama,
I have just two questions:
Wow, when I read over the sample ballot and found the man I felt would uphold rights over wrongs, I put my vote next to his name.
Frank Ferry's recent mea culpa for admittedly being "brash and abrasive" was short lived.
