To The Editor: On March 27, The Signal reported that Hart School District officials, after facing considerable opposition from parents and faculty, are still in limbo concerning the implementation of random student drug testing (a practice that is becoming more common in America) in an attempt to deter drug use.
To The Editor: As we become increasingly aware of our interdependence with the natural world, I would like to express my
In what alternative universe does Stephen Winkler reside ("Think before you vote," Letters, April 24)? Hillary Clinton is the Democratic party candidate and John McCain is a liberal Republican?
To The Editor: I've been enjoying The Signal's Web site. Really terrific. Sharon Cotal recently wrote an article about our school ("Christian high schools offer options," April 14, 2008), and it was fun to see it not only on the front page but also up on the Web site.
After 24 years, I am amazed, sad and disgusted about the changes that have been going on with The Signal over the last several months. Where is The Signal, our local paper? Instead of a paper whose articles should be about what's happening in the SCV, I get a mess of here, there and everywhere. I will be changing papers when my subscription expires.
To The Editor: That was a great piece on Melody Ranch ("Down on Main Street at Melody Ranch," "A Closer Look," April 20, 2008 by Stephen K. Peeples, Signal Online Editor). I always learn something new about that place.
To The Editor: I am writing to express my disappointment in the recycling system that is in effect this year. We have
To The Editor: America is fortunate that both the Democratic and Republican candidates are extremely qualified for the
Recently two local Republicans announced they would be writing commentaries for The Signal in addition to Monday's "Right Her Right Now." These two men, Steve Lunetta and Paul Strickland, have different styles but both write excellent commentaries. The news of their more frequent submissions is gratifying on a couple of fronts. One, The Signal is pretty much dominated by the left six days out of seven (nationally and locally) and two, Messrs. Lunetta and Strickland ...
To The Editor: It is fair to say that I was extremely disappointed in the results of the recent local election to fill two empty seats on the Santa Clarita City Council.
To The Editor: Once Maria Gutzeit was endorsed by liberal Gary Horton, she never had a chance to win.
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.
To The Editor: It's truly sad that columnists like Mr. Lunetta perpetuate false arguments on subjects as important as national security.
To The Editor: I am reminded on a daily basis what an amazing place Santa Clarita is to live and raise a family. Every time I drive by a local, award-winning school, every time I shop at the ever-improving mall or eat at an excellent restaurant, and every time I meet a new, friendly community member, I am reminded that Santa Clarita is the most amazing place around! Today was a day that, more than ...
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.
The Signal's Opinion Page of the March 14, 2013 issue shows forethought and good planning in printing two columns on the same subject but with the authors having completely different views on the matter. That subject is the recent 13-hour filibuster by Senator Rand Paul and the authors are SCV columnist Steve Lunetta and syndicated columnist Joe Gandelman; conservative and liberal respectively.
We use words and rhetoric to express ourselves, our opinion. But in today's politics, there's such a spin that you can no longer take words at face value.
In December, The Signal reported that I had won an "extreme makeover" of the landscaping at my home in Saugus sponsored by the Castaic Lake Water Agency and Stay Green Inc.
The California Board of Equalization has just approved a 9.7 percent increase in the excise tax on gasoline, raising the total excise tax to 39.5 cents per gallon. This added to all the other taxes on gasoline sales will have us paying over 70 cents per gallon in tax. On top of this we pay license fees on our vehicles which are a tax as well and like many people I thought all of this money was for roads.
I want to commend Tammy Messina for her excellent column discussing the true purpose of the Second Amendment.
Let's stop the blame game and who's idea it was about the sequestration.
Tired of the debate on gun control and sick of hearing about global warming?
Liberalism allows the less charitable to feel better about themselves by giving away other people's money and freedom.
Regarding the column from Tim Myers published March 2, "Does the election date change favor the incumbent?":
This sequester panic is government fraud and misdirection at its best.
The sequester seems to be the only way that the rate at which we grow the budget is slowed down.
I quote a recent editorial contribution by a Santa Clarita City Council member: "Public participation is an essential way ... to influence the decision-making process."
I read with interest the article on the effects of the Canada – U.S. pipeline and its relationship to climate change.
Here is what gets me: The Republicans are always asking, where are the jobs? Well as of March 1, 2013, they are going to let thousands of people get laid off.
The toll roads are great for the young people but how about us older ones that still like to get out and see things. ? How about making it free for older people?
