To The Editor: I've been enjoying The Signal's Web site. Really terrific. Sharon Cotal recently wrote an article about our school ("Christian high schools offer options," April 14, 2008), and it was fun to see it not only on the front page but also up on the Web site.
After 24 years, I am amazed, sad and disgusted about the changes that have been going on with The Signal over the last several months. Where is The Signal, our local paper? Instead of a paper whose articles should be about what's happening in the SCV, I get a mess of here, there and everywhere. I will be changing papers when my subscription expires.
To The Editor: That was a great piece on Melody Ranch ("Down on Main Street at Melody Ranch," "A Closer Look," April 20, 2008 by Stephen K. Peeples, Signal Online Editor). I always learn something new about that place.
To The Editor: I am writing to express my disappointment in the recycling system that is in effect this year. We have
To The Editor: America is fortunate that both the Democratic and Republican candidates are extremely qualified for the
Recently two local Republicans announced they would be writing commentaries for The Signal in addition to Monday's "Right Her Right Now." These two men, Steve Lunetta and Paul Strickland, have different styles but both write excellent commentaries. The news of their more frequent submissions is gratifying on a couple of fronts. One, The Signal is pretty much dominated by the left six days out of seven (nationally and locally) and two, Messrs. Lunetta and Strickland ...
To The Editor: It is fair to say that I was extremely disappointed in the results of the recent local election to fill two empty seats on the Santa Clarita City Council.
To The Editor: Once Maria Gutzeit was endorsed by liberal Gary Horton, she never had a chance to win.
To The Editor: I couldn't agree more with Dave McEachern (April 15). We can do more for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students. Indeed, we should have no tolerance for bullying and name-calling.
To The Editor: It's truly sad that columnists like Mr. Lunetta perpetuate false arguments on subjects as important as national security.
To The Editor: I am reminded on a daily basis what an amazing place Santa Clarita is to live and raise a family. Every time I drive by a local, award-winning school, every time I shop at the ever-improving mall or eat at an excellent restaurant, and every time I meet a new, friendly community member, I am reminded that Santa Clarita is the most amazing place around! Today was a day that, more than ...
To The Editor: Now that the City Council election is over, I sure hope that all those who ran will remove all of the signs they have placed on almost every street corner.
To The Editor: I use vote-by-mail. I got the information from my mailbox, read it all carefully and mailed the ballot back within a few days.
To The Editor: I was initially not amused by Pat Bagley's cartoon this morning (April 9, 2008) representing Charlton Heston as a gun-waving nut outside the gates of heaven. However, after ruminating on this for a bit I thought, well, actually, his NRA participation was presented by the media as defining the man in his later life.
To The Editor: I have been sitting on the sidelines looking and listening to all sides, and it came to me - Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is the Pied Piper!
The United States Congress does not serve the people of the United States of America. It caters to the rich 2 percent of America.
Fracking will create more pollution of the air and water on the California coastline, farmlands and in urban neighborhoods.
Regarding the Donald Robinson letter to the editor "Don't glorify war in honoring veterans": Some of us Vietnam veterans will not admit that the war was one big waste of time. Denial is a powerful thing.
When a baby was born in France, at the hospital we were given a carnet de santé (notebook for health.)
I am writing in regards to the letter by Donald Robinson, subject the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
It's my opinion that the Republicans have an opportunity to turn things around for themselves.
Regarding David M. Shribman's Oct. 1 commentary, "Shrinking role of handwritten word," the sad thing is that a legible signature and handwriting are a thing of the past.
What do you call a spoiled child when he/she does not get chosen on a team due to "lack of necessities"?
In response to Gary Morrison's comments on Sept. 15, I will give you a fact. When my daughter was over on deployment in Iraq with the U.S. Army, she and her company came upon numerous IEDs that contained chemical weapons, multiple times, and that was later on in the war. That is a fact.
I follow the Signal Opinion Column, on the days the Democrats have their say, I wonder where I have been? Their writer makes their leaders sound like he is invincible. Also they make it sound like the Republicans are at fault for everything. I read this, and I say why am I a Republican. Then comes another day and I get to read the Republican Opinion, then I begin to realize why I am a ...
As a frequent driver of the Hasley Canyon roundabout, I have observed that 90 percent of drivers have no idea of the rules or etiquette involved in roundabout usage. Installing one of the proposed pieces of artwork in the center of the Newhall Roundabout is an invitation to disaster, as drivers try to figure out what it represents, rather than paying attention to their driving.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the Simi Valley Senior Center. This center is state of the art, with modern architecture, and large carpeted meeting rooms. I saw a room filled with computers offering all levels of training. It seemed to go on and on as one hallway led into another. My understanding is this center is owned by the city of Simi Valley. Funds come from the city. Additional funding comes from holding events, including weddings.
Again, I have to thank Kevin Buck for an entertaining, if rabidly partisan, column today. It's always fun to read how we conservatives are such ogres. Now that they're done with their Toy Story series, maybe Pixar can fire up a new one called Tea Party. Get Tim Burton to direct. Wouldn't that be fun?
In his September 16th letter, "Only one answer to the roundabout art dilemma," Kevin Eliason suggests that the city council should make a statue of the late William S. Hart the centerpiece for our new roundabout but I think I have a better idea:
In response to Jim Horton's Sept. 13 letter to the editor "Pacifism has never proved to be the answer": Have you ever served in the military in a war zone?
