Sometimes I think there is a digressive unit within the Pentagon charged with dreaming up regulations designed to aggravate our military forces and veterans.
As a Kaiser member and Santa Clarita Valley resident, I know first-hand how inconvenient Kaiser hospital facilities are. We've been begging Kaiser for a hospital in the SCV. Our pleas falls on deaf ears.
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.

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.

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.
Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.
