To The Editor: You can definitely put me on the side of the room that is against more unnecessary taxes - the key word being "unnecessary."
To The Editor: Thanks and goodbye to officer Tommy Banks. Yes, I got a ticket on Soledad. But you know what ... I was speeding and it reminded me to slow down.
To The Editor: Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's deputies spent a lot of officers' time and taxpayers' money during a recent weekend to arrest just three drunk drivers out of 916 cars stopped and inconvenienced at a DUI checkpoint ("DUI checkpoint in Valencia nets 4 arrests," March 30, 2008). That is a meager .33 percent success rate.
To The Editor: Congratulations and best wishes to SCV sheriff's Deputy John Thomas Banks on his retirement.
To The Editor: I have been following the reports over the last few months and am incensed that none of the plans offered by the Hart School District have included cutting the fat at the top. Why has there been no proposal for cutting the six-figure salaries in order to save some programs and teachers' jobs? I have no children at home now, but I am still taxed for the schools and am happy to ...
To The Editor: I was appalled to see Barack Obama on television recently trying to use racism to his political advantage. He stated that the most segregated place in America is the churches. It is incredible that he would stoop so low in an attempt to gain a political advantage. Certainly, many years ago, his statement was true, but the fact that it is no longer true is something that Americans can and should ...
To The Editor: To the voters: How many of you will be voting for a candidate who puts their poster board ads on public property and/or public right-of-ways? So much for following the letter of the law. Then there's the littering factor.
To The Editor: Hilarious! We loved the April 1 front page of The Signal! Now please cancel our subscription. April fools! Rock on.
To The Editor: Hi! I am a third-grade student at Castaic Elementary School and read about the "plans" for the new Castaic Lake High School (in the April fool's edition of The Signal). It sounds really cool!! Are you planning to put in boat docks for the students? I hope so because I will want one! I guess I will tell my mom and dad to buy me a boat and not a car when ...
To The Editor: Thank you so much for the clever parody in the April 1 edition of The Signal.
To The Editor: What a pleasant surprise! Every morning of my life, the L.A. Times has been on my front doorstep or driveway. I will always read The Times. I have subscribed to The Signal for my entertainment (and some local news). The entertainment has gone out of the Signal. In previous years, you could tell that the staff at The Signal was having fun. I enjoyed the "Christmas Light Caravan" issues, the Phony Parade ...
To The Editor: Well, it has been almost two months since the residents of Acton/Agua Dulce defeated yet another school bond measure, this one supposedly to build only a high school and the fourth attempt in the last six years.
To The Editor: It's stunning that The Signal continues to miss the story behind Laurie Ender's remarkable campaign to be elected to City Council on April 8. It's being funded and fueled in part by a group of people who have never donated or voted as part of a city election. A recent Santa Clarita blog posted that more than 200 "nobodies" recently showed up to her Family Day campaign rally on a Saturday ...
To The Editor: Please accept my apologies for this late letter. I am unusually busy as a single parent of four children since my wife, Audrey, died of cancer three years ago. Diane Trautman has assisted my family, especially my youngest of four children, Marisa, with much help, and I am deeply indebted to her. Diane has given my family and me much welcome and needed on-point advice. She has freely given of herself ...
To The Editor: Mayor Kellar is an original class act. He has done and continues to do so much for our city. There is no council member that I can remember who stands up so strong when addressing issues. He takes them head on. Again, we live in a great city because of the dedication to family and quality-of-life issues that Mayor Kellar believes in and defends.
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.
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.
I just saw an ad for a new television comedy this fall. Since it is to be about the "family," I focused in.
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.
Those on the left, center, and right all think they know best - in fact, that may be the only thing they do agree upon.
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.
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."
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.
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.
Gary Horton's (no relation) column about war is very revealing in that it delves into the short-sightedness of liberal thinking.
I cannot believe that some people actually think that same-sex marriages ought not to exist. That is just plain brutal.
The student government at UCLA recently resolved to ban the term "illegal immigrant" because they consider it "racially derogatory language" which has led to "racial profiling practices, punitive policies targeting socially marginalized groups, hate crimes and violence."
In his letter to the editor in the Aug. 29 edition of The Signal, Brian Springer credits "The Butler" movie as truthful. It is not.
