Kudos to new sports editor

I complained mightily about The Signal's Sports pages before. So now I'd like to make amends.

A wish list for the Santa Clarita Valley

Caltrans needs to hire women to repair the potholes and cracks on the 5 freeway because the job the men have been doing is a joke!

Keep development on SCV's west side

I have been a resident of this valley for more than 32 years. We tried to develop the Rivendale/Towsley Canyon at that time, but regional planning - through the county - was less than eager to approve the development as the creek that runs through the canyon drains in excess of 4,000 acres.

We were there during an El Nino when the water that rushed through the creek was so strong that it carried heavy large boulders, storm drain pipes and other debris and deposited it on the flood plain - the Smiser Mule property.

How not to choose judges: Steve Lunetta’s method

Steve Lunetta wrote an Op-Ed article on June 2, 2008 on "How to Choose the Local Judges." In that article he states, "Please take the time to read and think about the judges you vote for."

SCV needs to give people reason to come here

More new hotels. Geez. They haven't even gotten around to putting mints on all the new pillows at the corner of the 5 and the 126. I was just wondering who's gonna stay in all these hotel rooms? Has Magic Mountain suddenly gained some new allure that I've missed? I doubt it.

There is no other reason to get off the freeway except to get gas.

Gay marriage ban a religious freedom issue

I'm one of the "million fools" that Jonathan Kraut wrote of (June 3) who signed the petition to amend our state constitution so as to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The main reason our constitution must be amended this way is to protect our freedom of religion, which is one of the basic rights supposedly granted by our constitution and the primary reason this country was founded in the first place.

Cacti use in Santa Clarita landscaping

Santa Clarita may not be Phoenix, but it is a desert location ("Is this Phoenix or Santa Clarita?," Letters, May 29). "Cacti" would seem to be a natural choice for landscaping purposes.

Some with biased views wrongly attacked city

Last night I attended a public meeting regarding traffic in our neighborhood. In response to some residents complaints regarding traffic in the area, Santa Clarita city staff had done numerous traffic counts, surveys, license plate checks, etc. In addition, new stop signs and speed signs had been added to mitigate the perceived problems along with an increased law enforcement presence. The meeting was to present the most recent survey data.

When city staff presented the data, they were verbally attacked by several very vocal and very angry neighbors, because the data did not lead to the conclusion they wanted. They ...

Merchants’ credit card policies prohibited

Where I choose to spend my money in Santa Clarita is a big deal to me. With so many places to shop, eat and use services in the SCV, I can go to about 100 different places for the same thing. This letter may seem like more of a rant, but I would also like to provide information to readers.

Merchants are not allowed to charge you an extra fee, service charge or set a minimum amount for purchases with credit cards. I find more and more businesses doing this, which specifically goes against Visa and MasterCard merchant agreements.

The facts about SCV's No. 2 junior golfer Max Homa

Although I've contacted The Signal several times regarding misinformation that was printed about my son, the mistakes continue.

Pinetree Elementary’s no-hugging rule absurd

I read Sharon Cotal's article in The Signal on Memorial Day ("Sorry, this school is in a no-hugging zone," May 26) and the more I read it, the more exasperated I became!

I know the verdict is not in yet for Pinetree Elementary School, but it is totally absurd that an elementary school principal would even think young children should not be allowed to "hug, high-five, shake hands or just be close" to their classmates.

Kierkegaard quotation should be read in context

I just wanted to comment on the Kierkegaard quote run in "The Still Small Editorial" on May 16: "To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily; to not dare is to lose one's self entirely."

I was hoping to put the quote within the context from which the author spoke. Though our current culture of thought probably interprets the above quote as taking a worldly risk (like pursuing a business venture or perhaps leaving one's spouse to begin a new life), Kierkegaard was actually speaking of faith in the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Thanks to business who volunteered time for tour

Many thanks to some special people and businesses.

On May 21, Nora Ortiz and co-workers at the Hyatt Valencia hosted a group of special education students from Valencia High School on a tour and shared career information.

McKeon out of touch

Buck McKeon may have some admirable qualities, but he was off base in blaming Democrats for gas prices.

Ron Paul has got it wrong

Regarding the May 5 column "The Sterling Dilemma" by Steve Lunetta, racism and bigotry in this country have been prevalent since the America's inception.

City, take a stand against petition blockers

I know there are quite a few people in the SCV who can remember back to the '40s, '50s and '60s during the big strikes that some of the big companies had - and how violent they were.

‘Rent’ provides chance to learn of silent killer

As the College of the Canyons Theatre Department performs "Rent" at the Performing Arts Center on May 9, 10, 11, 16, and 17, it puts the spotlight on Marfan syndrome, which is believed to have caused the death of "Rent" playwright Jonathan Larson at the age of 35.
