As a member of the city of Santa Clarita's Newhall Library Committee, I concur with Marc Winger, fellow Newhall resident and superintendent of the Newhall School District (Letters to the Editor, July 23).
This letter is to thank the good people of Newhall for their kind treatment of a traveler in need.
The following is in response to your recent report "Council demands solution for Benz Road" (June 6).
This letter is in response to The Signal's article on July 25, headlined "Family grapples with loss of toddler."
Not very often are do we acknowledge heroes. Tracy McFarland is one in my book.
Just read a teeny, tiny, one-sentence announcement: Five Iraqi athletes have been banned from Olympics competition.
I e-mailed this letter to Senators Boxer and Feinstein. I also sent it to the Governor. The "political football" of drilling for oil wherever it is in the United States is a typical example of the cynicism of the left.
I am writing in response to The Signal's July 11 story "County Frets Over Foster Freeze." California's foster children did not create our state's budget crisis and should not carry the burden of the failings of their elders. Balancing the budget on the backs of abused and neglected children flies in the face of our commitment to provide quality care for our state's most vulnerable citizens.
I wanted to compliment The Signal on its general improvement. The-Signal.com is especially impressive.
I congratulate you on Monday, July 14's front page. The Signal senior and possibly the only weekend writer Jim Holt rules the front page.
I am responding to Don Gately's letter of July 17. Our society was founded on traditional values. Those values are a foundation that holds us together.
Do I believe that government should impose restrictions on SUV owners for contributing to the oil scarcity problem by driving their gas-guzzling Leviathans? By all means, no.
Being a resident directly next door to the Smiser Mule Ranch parcel, it grieves me that the city would even consider this an eligible site for an "urban center." In other words, another shopping center.
I am writing regarding the appointment of Frank Ferry's secretary to the parks commission. The only information we have been given regarding her abilities and background in parks and recreation is that she has been Mr. Ferry's secretary for the past number of years and seems to be good at that job.
I am writing this letter to show support for the master-planned expansion project at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. I side with the overwhelming majority of community leaders who support this project.
I have never written or responded to a letter to the editor until now, but I cannot let Carole Lutness's "Republicans go after the poor" (Dec. 9) go without a response.
I appreciate the care being taken by our City Council in determining what should be the centerpiece of the Newhall roundabout.
Charlie Vignola opens his column Dec. 3 by writing: "Simply put, what I believe shouldn't affect you, and what you believe shouldn't affect me - period" ("Slippery slope for U.S.").
Regarding Gary Curtis's Dec. 6 letter to the editor, "Consequences of abortion": Words almost fail me, Mr. Curtis.
I have a couple of uncles I would rather forget, but I will admit they exist and I have met them.
By analogy with the gay marriage issue, who cares if someone who's never been to Paris wants to privately call themselves a "Parisian"?
Nelson Mandela, 95, gave up a third of his lifespan so that South Africans could live in racial harmony.
I read that Supervisor Antonovich is again raising concerns about welfare fraud in L.A. County. This is typical of Republicans to go after the poor and by implication "them" - brown- and black-skinned people.
