Gas tax not the answer

Some of our presidential hopefuls have been promising a cut of the federal gas tax for the summer driving season. Others have said if that happens, the roads, potholes and rusty bridges would not be repaired. Plus the price would go up.

Stop illegals now

To The Editor:

Here were are, with a torrent of illegals invading the United States border at a rate of at least 12,000-plus per day. The Bush administration has been dragging its feet on the way about this issue (no big surprise).

This one's for you, Dad

A travesty against a vet

To The Editor:

Thank you for the article on Carl Diekman. It's truly a shame that the Department of Veterans Affairs has so little respect for this man and is coming after him over $84.00 a month. The fact that they will not even take the time to explain the charges and offer to work with him is a travesty. The VA has had so much negative publicity over the years, and here they have a chance to right a wrong to a man who has served our country. Let's hope they do the right thing.

Vilification of Sterling

I would be less troubled with the vilification of Donald Sterling if the popular press, including printed and electronic media, were as aggressive in the treatment of prominent blacks, including sports figures, when they make blatantly racist statements about whites.

Pastor Hegg's column published in The Signal May 11, "We don't have to think alike," beautifully states my own concerns about the current situations when what people say is being used to destroy them financially and socially.

City, take a stand against petition blockers

I know there are quite a few people in the SCV who can remember back to the '40s, '50s and '60s during the big strikes that some of the big companies had - and how violent they were.
