Caution: Hazardous artwork ahead

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 senior center to emulate

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.

Here’s something to think about, Kevin Buck

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?

Another roundabout idea

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:

Putting yourself in our troops’ shoes

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?

Do your duty

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.

Syria is a major decision

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.

An epidemic of unwed moms-to-be

I just saw an ad for a new television comedy this fall. Since it is to be about the "family," I focused in.

The perfect artwork for the Newhall roundabout

In the past few weeks The Signal has printed two front-page articles that, when considered together, reveal some interesting things about our City Council.

Beliefs aren’t available in one -size-fits-all

Those on the left, center, and right all think they know best - in fact, that may be the only thing they do agree upon.

Don’t miss ‘Say Yes to the Mess’ this fall

Lots of people are familiar with the reality TV show "Say Yes to the Dress," in which a bride to be allows an entourage to help pick out her wedding dress.

Paper bags should be the cost of doing business

Regarding "Council votes down bag ban," Sept. 12, The Signal article contains the statement "Some council members spoke in favor of banning plastic bags but bristled at the implication that customers would be required to pay five or 10 cents a bag for the paper counterparts."

Only one answer to the roundabout art dilemma

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.

Ditch Obamacare and enact real health-care reform

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.

Pacifism has never proved to be the answer

Gary Horton's (no relation) column about war is very revealing in that it delves into the short-sightedness of liberal thinking.

America needs to change its energy policy

I don't know about you, but to me, reducing the threat of climate change would best be accomplished by having good flood control, stout construction, a reliable water supply and affordable energy - Not by following leaders who think we can reduce the threat of climate change by stopping the change.

Average Americans dress like bums

With perhaps the exception of church services (and even some of them need the following counsel), I have noticed that the average American - even at work - dresses like a bum, no pride in one's attire at all. Ragged blue jeans coupled with ragged tee-shirts dress most of our Santa Clarita residents, these days.

Skateboarder behaviors

How many more families are going to have their hearts broken by their young people going around with ear plugs on a skateboard or bicycle and not paying attention to the traffic lights at an intersection?

Kudos to Newhall Tennis Club members featured in Signal’s Our Community

Promote self-sufficiency and strong marriages

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson delivered his famous "War on Poverty" speech, purposing "to cure it and, above all, to prevent it." Unfortunately, like our other wars in the last half-century, this one has not lived up to its noble ideals.
