Okay, I have had it! What ever happened to the word "to"? When did "ta" replace the word "to"?
What has happened to my favorite radio frequency all of a sudden? I loved listening to KCSN-FM 88.5 generated from Cal State Northridge and now all I get is static. Why?
I couldn't help but notice the contrast between two articles printed on the Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2008, front page.
An open letter to Dr. John Barstis (Letters, Oct 14, 2008):
The building of a Castaic high school has been a huge ongoing issue in our very small community.
My name is Janae. I'm 15 years old and I go to Valencia High School. For one of my English essays we were to write an essay about a letter to the editor. I actually really got into it.
In a recent conversation with some friends a question arose as to how much commitment the city of Santa Clarita has to the arts. I was told there have been some things the city has done, but for the most part, with little or no input from the arts community.
I am pro-Proposition 8. I believe very strongly that marriage is a time-honored and socially critical covenant between a man and a woman with the chief purpose of conceiving and raising children in a loving family environment - a covenant that has been gradually eroded and made to seem wholly irrelevant (until now) over the last 40-plus years.
I am responding to Matthew Allen's letter, "Let gays marry their loved ones" (Oct. 16).
In response to people in Valencia who have written complaining about their "Yes on 8" signs being stolen, I wanted to make sure they understood that plenty of "No on 8" lawn signs have gone missing as well.
In 1999 I had a discussion with a good friend of mine in Texas. I asked her, "Who are you going to vote for?" Her reply changed my political path for the rest of my life.
Fraudulent voter registration may not lead to fraudulent votes, but it certainly skews polls, which use registration numbers as their basis. Therefore, today's polls showing a given candidate with a lead may show phony results because of phony voter registration.
It seems odd to me that in this country where we fought to have the right to free speech and freedom of religion, and to be one nation under God, that we can't find a way to the common good for all.
Shame on the editorial board of The Signal for recommending a No vote on Proposition 2, a measure that, if passed, will improve the living conditions of millions of chickens, calves and pigs on factory farms in California.
In response to the statement that some intolerant liberal stole your McCain and Yes on 8 signs, I had my Obama sign defaced and then stolen earlier this summer.
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.

Why do we not get fine films out here in SCV?
