If you question New York City's Stop and Frisk policies, you might consider the constitutionality of Santa Clarita's DUI checkpoints. What justification is there for stopping over a thousand cars when there is absolutely no reasonable cause? Just because we have a federal grant, Do we have to spend taxpayer money to cite a single DUI? Some may argue that it takes just one drunk to run over a child, but I'd ask what percentage ...
Our President Barack Obama is asking the Congress' vote. It's legitimate. If we have the proof that Syria killed children and adults with chemical weapons don't we have to intervene? I understand this time France would be our ally if we decide to save lives.

Regarding Dick Cesaroni's letter to the editor "Major League Baseball and its discipline," published Aug. 13: Pete Rose made much more than a few bets while managing the Reds. He bet on 52 games over the course of the 1985, '86 and '87 seasons - at a minimum of $10,000 per game on the Reds.

For some time I have been thinking about writing to the opinion page in The Signal. I have many things I want to say but must consider economy of words.

There can be only one memorialized statue at the entrance to Newhall: William S. Hart, the cowboy, actor, rancher and humanitarian who made the community and contributed his legacy for all to enjoy forever.
Health care definitely needs reform, but Obamacare, the so-called Affordable Care Act, is a travesty - as evidenced by the AFL-CIO now asking to be exempted.
Gary Horton's (no relation) column about war is very revealing in that it delves into the short-sightedness of liberal thinking.
I cannot believe that some people actually think that same-sex marriages ought not to exist. That is just plain brutal.
