DUI checks ineffective

To The Editor:

Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies spent a lot of officers' time and taxpayers' money during a recent weekend to arrest just three drunk drivers out of 916 cars stopped and inconvenienced at a DUI checkpoint ("DUI checkpoint in Valencia nets 4 arrests," March 30, 2008). That is a meager .33 percent success rate.

Well, it has been almost two months since the residents of Acton/Agua Dulce defeated yet another school bond measure, this one supposedly to build only a high school and the fourth attempt in the last six years.

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.

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.
