I just have to laugh at the know-nothing letter by John Castagna.
Steve Lunetta compared California's financial crisis with his mac 'n' cheese decisions when he was a struggling student ("Dems need to start a spending diet," Dec. 22.)
I always enjoy the NASCAR coverage. I also liked the article about the airline mechanic, mainly because I was an aircraft engine mechanic in the U.S. Air Force from 1951-1955.
Okay, I have had it! What ever happened to the word "to"? When did "ta" replace the word "to"?
What has happened to my favorite radio frequency all of a sudden? I loved listening to KCSN-FM 88.5 generated from Cal State Northridge and now all I get is static. Why?
I couldn't help but notice the contrast between two articles printed on the Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2008, front page.
An open letter to Dr. John Barstis (Letters, Oct 14, 2008):
The building of a Castaic high school has been a huge ongoing issue in our very small community.
My name is Janae. I'm 15 years old and I go to Valencia High School. For one of my English essays we were to write an essay about a letter to the editor. I actually really got into it.
In a recent conversation with some friends a question arose as to how much commitment the city of Santa Clarita has to the arts. I was told there have been some things the city has done, but for the most part, with little or no input from the arts community.
I am pro-Proposition 8. I believe very strongly that marriage is a time-honored and socially critical covenant between a man and a woman with the chief purpose of conceiving and raising children in a loving family environment - a covenant that has been gradually eroded and made to seem wholly irrelevant (until now) over the last 40-plus years.
I am responding to Matthew Allen's letter, "Let gays marry their loved ones" (Oct. 16).
In response to people in Valencia who have written complaining about their "Yes on 8" signs being stolen, I wanted to make sure they understood that plenty of "No on 8" lawn signs have gone missing as well.
In 1999 I had a discussion with a good friend of mine in Texas. I asked her, "Who are you going to vote for?" Her reply changed my political path for the rest of my life.
Fraudulent voter registration may not lead to fraudulent votes, but it certainly skews polls, which use registration numbers as their basis. Therefore, today's polls showing a given candidate with a lead may show phony results because of phony voter registration.
I read with interest the article in the May 26 issue of The Signal ("Pavley's bill would change charter school law") about the bill introduced by California Sen. Fran Pavley regarding charter schools.
