Kudos to McKeon for support of wilderness

I was pleased to learn that Congressman Buck McKeon has introduced legislation to protect forever as wilderness two wild places in the Angeles National Forest close to my home in Canyon Country.

Wilderness protection is the highest level of protection that any area can receive, and it's something that we can be especially proud of because it's not given lightly and can only happen by act of Congress.

Republican support of troops a sham

A lot of folks like to say that the Republicans support the military.

June 15 marked the 76th anniversary of the 1932 Republican-controlled Senate's rejection of the Patnam Bonus Bill, which would have paid earlier bonuses to the veteran soldiers of World War I then suffering starvation in the Great Depression.

Seniors getting short shrift from the city

How ironic that above Diana Sevanian's story on the tragic plight of the Senior Center's Home-Delivered Meals Program would be a commentary by Councilwoman Laurie Ender espousing the city's $25 million expansion of the Sports Complex.

How shameful!

Hart superintendent responds to editorial

Half of The Signal's June 15 editorial summarized recent allegations of "sexually inappropriate" conduct by William S. Hart Union High School District employees and a volunteer.

The critical question, and the one that district staff has already been answering for understandably concerned parents, appears below the fold. That question is: "Where is the district on this?"

Thumbs down to editing glitches

Is it just me, or have there been some issues with the editing of the newspaper lately?

Just in today's (Saturday, May 24) paper for example, page A1 states the forecast will be High: 64 Low: 43, with isolated showers.

Tim Russert was one in a million

Tim Russert's sudden death is sad for his family, his friends, and his many colleagues, but it is us, the viewers, who should mourn this loss as well.

So many knew he represented unbiased reporting of the issues, especially around election time, and we will now have to work harder to replace what we had come to rely on without question.

City manager responds to development issues

Growth and development have long been major issues for residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. In fact, these issues are key reasons why residents chose to incorporate in the 1980s. Cityhood in 1987 brought local home rule to the four communities of Saugus, Newhall, Valencia and Canyon Country. It enabled the new local government to retain millions every year in tax dollars, 100 percent of which are spent right here in Santa Clarita on roads, parks, transportation, law enforcement, community services, infrastructure, trails and other amenities residents have expressed a desire to bring to our community. Today, Santa Clarita is ...

Kopp should apologize to Tick Canyon residents

Gail Kopp owes me and the thousands of other residents of Tick Canyon an apology for referring to our community as "a dump" ("Park Place to be built in Tick Canyon," June 6, 2008). I assure you I have no discarded tires on my block.

Pining for the days of millionaires and moonshine

Have you noticed that our lifestyle is changing at a fast pace? Today's millionaires are nowhere near as well-off as yesterday's were.

Today's millionaires are living in upscale-built homes, have a mortgage and drive themselves to work every day. They are looking forward to the day their wife retires so they can "get out of Dodge," and possibly buy a few acres of land so they can grow their own food and have a windmill which generates power to pump their own water and supply the electrical needs.

Forget Friday, bring back the Sunday TV guide

The Signal has always had the BEST TV guide weekly, and it was in the Sunday edition.

For some reason, you changed it to Friday, and it stinks. Friday to Friday.

Planning for growth

Upon reading The Signal's recent article declaring city planners expect SCV's growth to expand to 500,000 people, I first thought, "Wow! How could our traffic infrastructure possibly handle that?"

Why not on Page 1?

I have a question which I think others in the Santa Clarita Valley may have regarding the "Newhall land files for bankruptcy" story on Page 3 of The Signal's print edition (June 9, 2008).

Did burglaries really rise?

Regarding The Signal's Jan. 6 front-page article, "Burglaries on the rise in SCV this past year," I would like to point out that all is not necessarily as it appears.

USA can fall due to greed

I honestly don't believe that Democrats and Republicans will ever sit down and compromise on anything. The simple act of governing for all of the people seems to be impossible.

More praise for fracking

I'd like to applaud Sue Hartman's Jan. 10 column in The Signal ("Fracking for a prosperous California") regarding the benefits of fracking. And I'd like to add a couple of thoughts.

A tale of two scandals

Political pundits have put Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton as the front runners for the next president. Let's compare how the two have handled themselves in the face of recent scandals.

Too Dark on Wiley Canyon Road

There's darkness in my neighborhood and I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed. I don't understand it, but Wiley Canyon Road from Lyons Avenue to Old Orchard is dark, dark, dark. Except for light at intersection, the street is cloaked in black at night.
