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 Republican. Number One, I care about the future of our wonderful country. Number Two, I do not want my children and grandchildren to end up ...
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?
We have just had another mass shooting and gun control advocates are all over it but maybe it would never have happened if someone in the Navy had done their job.
Be not influenced by our horrific experiences in Iraq, for they were the result of a lie. A lie to Congress, its citizens and our allies.
I just saw an ad for a new television comedy this fall. Since it is to be about the "family," I focused in.
I have never written or responded to a letter to the editor until now, but I cannot let Carole Lutness's "Republicans go after the poor" (Dec. 9) go without a response.
I appreciate the care being taken by our City Council in determining what should be the centerpiece of the Newhall roundabout.
Charlie Vignola opens his column Dec. 3 by writing: "Simply put, what I believe shouldn't affect you, and what you believe shouldn't affect me - period" ("Slippery slope for U.S.").
Regarding Gary Curtis's Dec. 6 letter to the editor, "Consequences of abortion": Words almost fail me, Mr. Curtis.
I have a couple of uncles I would rather forget, but I will admit they exist and I have met them.
