Not very often are do we acknowledge heroes. Tracy McFarland is one in my book.
Just read a teeny, tiny, one-sentence announcement: Five Iraqi athletes have been banned from Olympics competition.
I e-mailed this letter to Senators Boxer and Feinstein. I also sent it to the Governor. The "political football" of drilling for oil wherever it is in the United States is a typical example of the cynicism of the left.
I am writing in response to The Signal's July 11 story "County Frets Over Foster Freeze." California's foster children did not create our state's budget crisis and should not carry the burden of the failings of their elders. Balancing the budget on the backs of abused and neglected children flies in the face of our commitment to provide quality care for our state's most vulnerable citizens.
I wanted to compliment The Signal on its general improvement. The-Signal.com is especially impressive.
I congratulate you on Monday, July 14's front page. The Signal senior and possibly the only weekend writer Jim Holt rules the front page.
I am responding to Don Gately's letter of July 17. Our society was founded on traditional values. Those values are a foundation that holds us together.
Do I believe that government should impose restrictions on SUV owners for contributing to the oil scarcity problem by driving their gas-guzzling Leviathans? By all means, no.
Being a resident directly next door to the Smiser Mule Ranch parcel, it grieves me that the city would even consider this an eligible site for an "urban center." In other words, another shopping center.
I am writing regarding the appointment of Frank Ferry's secretary to the parks commission. The only information we have been given regarding her abilities and background in parks and recreation is that she has been Mr. Ferry's secretary for the past number of years and seems to be good at that job.
I am writing this letter to show support for the master-planned expansion project at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. I side with the overwhelming majority of community leaders who support this project.
What has happened to our government? If I remember correctly, we are supposed to be for and by the people, not for the person who can raise the most money and make empty promises.
I am writing to comment on Stephen Winkler's July 3 submission entitled "Budget Cuts" and the subsequent online response from a reader who dismissed Mr. Winkler's assessment that budget cuts are not a partisan or ideological issue because they impact all Californians, including our seniors and children.
I am speaking from experience. I was driven to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in an ambulance about three weeks ago.
Thank you for the recent article about the many options for swimming lessons here in Santa Clarita ("The benefits of summer swim lessons," July 15).
In regards to the story "A closer look sought for billboard proposal" published in The Signal Feb. 13: City Council members are not acting in the best interest of my community with their proposal to remove local billboards.
Since it has been in force, the Affordable Care Act has disrupted the system as we knew it.
Regarding the Feb. 13 Signal story "A closer look sought for billboard proposal," I think the situation outlined in the article is actually two separate issues.
A great Olympic champion, Bodie Miller, was brought to his knees in tears for millions to see because the NBC reporter kept asking about the recent death of his brother, even asking him what he saw when he looked up into the sky.
There are Republicans who believe in more limited government as well as supporting a woman's right to choose.
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.
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.
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.
California's Central Valley farmers are facing some of the worst drought conditions they have ever seen.
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.
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.
(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?
Somewhere I read, or perhaps heard, that California drivers are the best in the country.
Wikipedia says, "A square dance is a dance for four couples (eight dancers) arranged in a square, with one couple on each side, facing the middle of the square."
