Not very often are do we acknowledge heroes. Tracy McFarland is one in my book.

Iraqis banned from competition! A conspiracy?

Just read a teeny, tiny, one-sentence announcement: Five Iraqi athletes have been banned from Olympics competition.

Democrats play politics on oil drilling

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.

Don’t punish the children for Sacramento’s budget

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.

The heart of The Signal still beats

A raise for the entire staff of The Signal

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.

Gay marriage threatens society’s foundation

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.

Choose to limit your consumption

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.

Another urban center not needed in Santa Clarita

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.

Cronyism apparently rife in local government

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.

A more holistic growth

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.

Party or country?

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.

Budget affects Democrats and Republicans

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.

What if all the beds at the hospital were full?

I am speaking from experience. I was driven to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in an ambulance about three weeks ago.

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.

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.

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?
