I am writing to thank you and the assistant city editor, Katherine Geyer, for the ongoing coverage you have given the Smart Growth SCV struggle against the for-profit medical office buildings proposed on the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital site.
My husband and I have called Valencia our home for the past 10 years and have seen a lot of growth from the construction of new homes, new retail stores and a variety of restaurants.
A few random thoughts occurred to me while recapping various recent reports from local and national media.
We are more anxious than 94.4 percent of the people in Mexico and nine times more likely to experience anxiety than Chinese laborers.
It wasn't hard to miss a recent large, unflattering color photo of Cindy McCain, along with an equally unflattering commentary. Unknown to many of us, apparently there is some mandatory onus on Mrs. McCain, that should she become first lady she "must use her past drug addiction for the benefit the masses."
I just wanted to remind everyone there is still a problem at Newhall Ranch Road and McBean Parkway.
The recent revelation that G&L Realty contributed $30,000 to a committee that in turn spent $29,000 to support Laurie Ender's election (a vocal proponent of the hospital's growth plans) raises a question: Has big-city influence spending made its way big time to our small city?
I am always pleasantly surprised when I go to another fantastic production put on at the Canyon Theatre Guild.
The Signal wrote on Aug. 2, "Hospital investor donated $30,000 to Ender." Is anyone else outraged by this? I am!
This is in response to a local commentary written by Cal Planakis on July 29. Ms. Planakis in one of those many sniffling citizens who are the first to attack or "re-evaluate" Prop. 13 whenever the state falls into financial straits.
A new library in downtown Newhall is most needed.
The Signal's recent editorial on California's budget crisis (Aug. 3) was really off the mark.
Once again I must extend thanks and commendations to the city of Santa Clarita. I am not exactly sure to whom the kudos should be directed, but I think at a minimum Ken Pulskamp, the city manger.
This letter is in response to Nancy Tujetsch's letter that appeared in The Signal on July 20.
I'm shocked! Is The Signal implying that a local politician might have been "bought" by a developer?
Even during the original ratifications, implementation of procedures and policies in our government faced changes to the Constitution (or Articles of Confederation, March 1, 1781).
Rocket Collins, 13 seasons as boys head basket coach at Valencia High School, has been relieved of his position.
Gary Horton's June 4 column "Embracing a fire that still burns us today" is his most articulate column yet, and is so right on!
The entire liberal edifice rests upon the premise that the unrestrained free market doesn't work in meeting certain essential societal needs.
It was just so exciting to read how the White House and EPA will save the planet despite those nasty and ridiculous global warming and climate change deniers.
Regarding Bowe Bergdahl's release in exchange for five terrorists, when this soldier enlisted in the Army, he knew the challenges ahead of him in military life, and one of those challenges was the possibility of capture by the enemy.
Let's stipulate that both sides of the political spectrum want the best for others (a fair assumption, especially since both sides insist that is so).
As Hillary Clinton prepares for her Democratic coronation as the next Democratic presidential candidate, she's decided to try dealing with the inconvenience of the Benghazi tragedy through her new book.
Recently on my daily walk with the dogs I really noticed how much trash is being discarded on our streets and in the gutters.
Perhaps the most difficult task to make a financial living at is that of being a poet. Yet, if one is great enough and has a measure of luck - like Maya Angelou - it is not impossible.
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.
Historically we are a violent people and mankind's history throughout the world demonstrates that we are violent. Laws passed protect us all from violence. But laws alone can't eliminate violence.
In Charlie Vignola's column ("Sensible about gun control," May 20) Vignola is basically making the intellectually flaccid argument that guns cause their own misuse.
Why do we not get fine films out here in SCV?
