Does everyone have the right to fight for marriage?

I read a blog the other day, and a writer was questioning their Mormon neighbors who were having their sixth child.

Forget the coots, save Bridgeport's ducks

After almost getting hit trying to help the ducks cross Newhall Ranch Road from the new water spot back to Bridgeport, I thought: "Why can't we put up DUCK CROSSING signs so the idiots who travel 80 miles per hour won't wonder where all the feathers came from?"

Reporters' pictures are too distracting

I do not like your use of reporters' pictures with the stories on your Web site. It is distracting and confusing.

Shame on City Hall for ignoring senior citizens

Thank you, Diana Sevanian, for your informative column about the home-delivered meals program for our valley's seniors ("A main course for senior survival," June 8, 2008) and the great need for additional funds to continue to feed these poor house-bound souls.

On the second page above Diana's column, we are informed that the city will spend $25 million for a new sports complex, including but not limited to a new BMX track, new skateboard park, and so on.

Block Party can only make a good neighborhood better

The city of Santa Clarita and the Canyon Country Advisory Committee have been collaborating on proactive code enforcement issues for the last two years. Questions relative to what ordinances should be targeted, how enforcement policies should be set and how we can assist our neighbors who may require help coming into compliance, have all been on the table.

Kudos to McKeon for support of wilderness

I was pleased to learn that Congressman Buck McKeon has introduced legislation to protect forever as wilderness two wild places in the Angeles National Forest close to my home in Canyon Country.

Wilderness protection is the highest level of protection that any area can receive, and it's something that we can be especially proud of because it's not given lightly and can only happen by act of Congress.

Republican support of troops a sham

A lot of folks like to say that the Republicans support the military.

June 15 marked the 76th anniversary of the 1932 Republican-controlled Senate's rejection of the Patnam Bonus Bill, which would have paid earlier bonuses to the veteran soldiers of World War I then suffering starvation in the Great Depression.

Seniors getting short shrift from the city

How ironic that above Diana Sevanian's story on the tragic plight of the Senior Center's Home-Delivered Meals Program would be a commentary by Councilwoman Laurie Ender espousing the city's $25 million expansion of the Sports Complex.

How shameful!

Hart superintendent responds to editorial

Half of The Signal's June 15 editorial summarized recent allegations of "sexually inappropriate" conduct by William S. Hart Union High School District employees and a volunteer.

The critical question, and the one that district staff has already been answering for understandably concerned parents, appears below the fold. That question is: "Where is the district on this?"

Thumbs down to editing glitches

Is it just me, or have there been some issues with the editing of the newspaper lately?

Just in today's (Saturday, May 24) paper for example, page A1 states the forecast will be High: 64 Low: 43, with isolated showers.

Tim Russert was one in a million

Tim Russert's sudden death is sad for his family, his friends, and his many colleagues, but it is us, the viewers, who should mourn this loss as well.

So many knew he represented unbiased reporting of the issues, especially around election time, and we will now have to work harder to replace what we had come to rely on without question.

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.
