Why Americans are so anxious

We are more anxious than 94.4 percent of the people in Mexico and nine times more likely to experience anxiety than Chinese laborers.

Why not give Cindy McCain a break?

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."

Slow down for the ducks

I just wanted to remind everyone there is still a problem at Newhall Ranch Road and McBean Parkway.

Buying votes?

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?

Canyon Theater Guild is stunning

Re-evaluate the politicians, not Prop 13

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.

New library would be community resource

A new library in downtown Newhall is most needed.

Take a stand: No more waste in state government

The Signal's recent editorial on California's budget crisis (Aug. 3) was really off the mark.

Thanks for emergency response system in city

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.

Laurie Ender probably did it for Ferry’s sake

I'm shocked! Is The Signal implying that a local politician might have been "bought" by a developer?

Get well and get out of that hospital

I read with interest the letter to the editor from Vernon Donnelly (July 24). Mr. Donnelly, I certainly hope you are feeling better now after your Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital experience.

Do not sacrifice child safety for convenience

I would like to add my comments after reading articles published in The Signal on child safety.

Principled in stance against gay marriage

I am responding to Malcolm Blue's letter to the editor on July 9, "Mormons' opposition to gay marriage is hypocritical."

Reasonable Republicans need to take back their party

There are Republicans who believe in more limited government as well as supporting a woman's right to choose.

Billboards are distracting

As regards to the unsightly billboards that line Railroad Avenue/Soledad Canyon Road, they are the single most annoying blight while driving down those avenues.

Applications with implications

The default position is: elbow tucked against your side and bent at a 45-degree angle, wrist with smart phone in hand also at a 45-degree angle, head tilted to parallel the hand.

Obama Derangement Syndrome goes both ways

I am writing in response to Kevin Buck's Feb. 11 column in The Signal ("Obama Derangement Syndrome") in which he condemns the questioning of President Obama as nothing more than conspiracy theories and ginned-up scandals, often motivated by pure hatred.

Backward priorities: Fish over people

California's Central Valley farmers are facing some of the worst drought conditions they have ever seen.

Congratulations on The Signal’s first 95 years

I am compelled at this time to address the 95-year celebration of the SCV Signal. I read the editorial in The Signal on Feb. 7 and was very impressed with this achievement by the newspaper.

Where was the anniversary of Sylmar quake?

I see no mention in the Feb. 9 issue of The Signal about the fact that the Sylmar quake happened on this date 43 years ago: Feb. 9, 1971.

Following the ‘established process’

(Councilman) TimBen (Boydston), if following the "established process" is the best way to achieve a given objective, why has the city wasted more than $7 million of taxpayer money on the Cemex issue?

America needs to change its energy policy

I don't know about you, but to me, reducing the threat of climate change would best be accomplished by having good flood control, stout construction, a reliable water supply and affordable energy - Not by following leaders who think we can reduce the threat of climate change by stopping the change.

Average Americans dress like bums

With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American - even at work - dresses like a bum, no pride in one's attire at all. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.

Skateboarder behaviors

How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?

Kudos to Newhall Tennis Club members featured in Signal’s Our Community

While scanning the SCV Signal on Sunday morning, Jan. 19, on my computer I decided to click onto the Our Community section. I had exhausted my resources with LTEs, columnists, Signal editorials, business news,
