I am writing to thank you and the assistant city editor, Katherine Geyer, for the ongoing coverage you have given the Smart Growth SCV struggle against the for-profit medical office buildings proposed on the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital site.
My husband and I have called Valencia our home for the past 10 years and have seen a lot of growth from the construction of new homes, new retail stores and a variety of restaurants.
A few random thoughts occurred to me while recapping various recent reports from local and national media.
We are more anxious than 94.4 percent of the people in Mexico and nine times more likely to experience anxiety than Chinese laborers.
It wasn't hard to miss a recent large, unflattering color photo of Cindy McCain, along with an equally unflattering commentary. Unknown to many of us, apparently there is some mandatory onus on Mrs. McCain, that should she become first lady she "must use her past drug addiction for the benefit the masses."
I just wanted to remind everyone there is still a problem at Newhall Ranch Road and McBean Parkway.
The recent revelation that G&L Realty contributed $30,000 to a committee that in turn spent $29,000 to support Laurie Ender's election (a vocal proponent of the hospital's growth plans) raises a question: Has big-city influence spending made its way big time to our small city?
I am always pleasantly surprised when I go to another fantastic production put on at the Canyon Theatre Guild.
The Signal wrote on Aug. 2, "Hospital investor donated $30,000 to Ender." Is anyone else outraged by this? I am!
This is in response to a local commentary written by Cal Planakis on July 29. Ms. Planakis in one of those many sniffling citizens who are the first to attack or "re-evaluate" Prop. 13 whenever the state falls into financial straits.
A new library in downtown Newhall is most needed.
The Signal's recent editorial on California's budget crisis (Aug. 3) was really off the mark.
Once again I must extend thanks and commendations to the city of Santa Clarita. I am not exactly sure to whom the kudos should be directed, but I think at a minimum Ken Pulskamp, the city manger.
This letter is in response to Nancy Tujetsch's letter that appeared in The Signal on July 20.
I'm shocked! Is The Signal implying that a local politician might have been "bought" by a developer?
Recently, The Signal published an article about an online petition with 800 signatures from the U.S., Argentina, Croatia, Kazakhstan, Poland and more to rename Hercules Street in Valencia to "Walker/Rodas Memorial Way."
President Obama has made it way too easy for me not to write about his behavior at Nelson Mandela's memorial.
I found Mayor Laurene Weste's five-column lecture and admonishment published Dec. 13 in The Signal ("'Tis the season to shop in Santa Clarita") interesting for those of us who live in Santa Clarita.
Congressmen like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul appear to rejoice at the thought of not passing legislation on unemployment benefits.
There is no causal link between abortion and breast cancer. Repeat as necessary.
I was in the Santa Clarita Post Office on Creekside Road twice within the past week.
"Opinions" about the link between abortion and breast cancer are cheap, especially when respondents can spout them in online forums, attacking others and their opinions with demeaning, snarky terms while hiding behind a "user name" or pseudonym.
I have never written or responded to a letter to the editor until now, but I cannot let Carole Lutness's "Republicans go after the poor" (Dec. 9) go without a response.
I appreciate the care being taken by our City Council in determining what should be the centerpiece of the Newhall roundabout.
Charlie Vignola opens his column Dec. 3 by writing: "Simply put, what I believe shouldn't affect you, and what you believe shouldn't affect me - period" ("Slippery slope for U.S.").
Regarding Gary Curtis's Dec. 6 letter to the editor, "Consequences of abortion": Words almost fail me, Mr. Curtis.
I have a couple of uncles I would rather forget, but I will admit they exist and I have met them.
By analogy with the gay marriage issue, who cares if someone who's never been to Paris wants to privately call themselves a "Parisian"?
Nelson Mandela, 95, gave up a third of his lifespan so that South Africans could live in racial harmony.
I read that Supervisor Antonovich is again raising concerns about welfare fraud in L.A. County. This is typical of Republicans to go after the poor and by implication "them" - brown- and black-skinned people.
