MRF needs support

To the Editor:

I appreciate Kathy Thompson pointing out my misstatement concerning the zoning of the proposed Materials Recovery Facility site on Sierra Highway. ("MRF Zoning Contradiction," March 1, 2008.) Current zoning on 42.46 acres of the site is indeed zoned Business Park, not Industrial as I had stated.

Kudos to deputies

To the Editor:

It is not often that our law enforcement officials are recognized for their hard work and professionalism. For this reason, I felt compelled to write this letter of appreciation.

Real-estate agents need not apply

To the Editor:

A note to all real-estate professionals who are aspiring to public office: think again. The California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) investigation against Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar is a stark reminder of government's intrusions into the private affairs of those seeking elected office.

Apology to Dawson

To the Editor:

May 10, 2008 | By Bruce McFarland Santa Clarita | Letters to the Editor


Apology not accepted

To The Editor:,

Your apology to Mayor Bob Kellar and Sharon Dawson should have been on the front page of The Signal.

Most controversial?

To The Editor:

It was interesting to read in The Mighty Signal that TimBen Boydston was selected to receive the SCV Press Club's Most Controversial Newsmaker of the Year Award for 2007. The term "most controversial"

Unpatriotic questioner?

To The Editor:

I have never run for office, nor do I intend to do so. And now that I hear once you declare your intention to run you give up your right to question those in office, well, I'm sure happy I haven't.

City's Priorities Askew

To The Editor:

Having read a variety of Signal articles recently, I have been both amused and irritated with the irony regarding several construction projects planned in our fair city.

A Deaf Ear on Iraq

To The Editor:

As preparation for the war in Iraq, our president and his advisers asked our generals for recommendations on this matter. They advised that they needed more troops than Rumsfeld had suggested. They said winning the war was no problem. More troops were needed to win the peace and secure that nation's stability and recovery.

Flatulence is Not Funny

To The Editor:

Something smells awful at the Signal.

What About the Victim?

To The Editor:

It was really disheartening to read the article "Mother of convicted murderer speaks out" (Feb. 29, 2008).

The Ultimate Sacrifice for Freedom

To The Editor:

Regarding Howard Barr's letter of Feb. 28, mentioning my name ('Troops in Iraq for the Wrong Reasons'), which was a reaction to a previous letter I wrote that was published on Feb. 24, ('Please Vet Stories'):

Money Wasted on Name Change

To The Editor:

I totally agree with Debbie Johnson's letter ('A Waste of $20,000, Feb. 20) that it is "an absolute waste of time and taxpayers' money to change the names of existing streets in downtown Newhall."

In Defense of Electoral Reform

To The Editor:

Democrats worried that Ralph Nader's presidential race might tip the scale in a crucial state over to the Republican nominee come November should embrace the opportunity before them to stop it before it happens: Not by tossing epithets at Nader or preventing his candidacy, but by immediately engaging in a program of electoral reform in key states to prevent such a possibility.

Thanks for Escape Theatre's 'Oliver'

To The Editor:

Many of you may have seen Escape Theatre's wonderful production of "Oliver" at Hart High on Feb. 1 through Feb. 3. But what you didn't see was the incredible amount of work and the months of dedication and sacrifice that Kyle and Elizabeth Burson and all others directly involved in producing the show went through.

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.

Backward priorities: Fish over people

California's Central Valley farmers are facing some of the worst drought conditions they have ever seen.

Congratulations on The Signal’s first 95 years

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.

Where was the anniversary of Sylmar quake?

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.

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?

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.

Skateboarder behaviors

How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?

Kudos to Newhall Tennis Club members featured in Signal’s Our Community

Promote self-sufficiency and strong marriages

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.
