Regarding The Signal's Saturday article by Luke Money on the subject of lawsuits filed against the Sulphur Springs School District and COC ("More voting lawsuits"): Many labor under the belief that these actions are locally motivated. Nothing could be further from the truth.
I read the article about the carpetbagging Malibu law firm filing lawsuits against some of our municipal agencies because of our at-large voting method ("More voting lawsuits," July 6), which allegedly prevents Latino voters from electing candidates of their choice.
This is about the chloride situation. The Ventura County farmers say chloride harms their crops.
I wonder if anyone with authority is paying attention to what is going on in the Santa Clarita Valley.
I cannot understand in the California Voting Rights Act who is considered the "protected class" of American citizens when it comes to voting in a citywide election.
Later this month, Santa Clarita will begin construction on the Newhall roundabout project in Old Town Newhall. The roundabout will improve safety and aesthetics and reduce vehicle emissions at this southern gateway into Old Town Newhall.
Your article in The Signal July 1 ("Roundabout ready to roll") raised several questions in my mind:
I think that religion and prayer should be allowed in all colleges, but that it ought to be taught, not preached.
The letter "Posters need to exhibit basic courtesy" (June 23, 2013) suggested that perhaps some people would write more letters to The Signal if the on-line bloggers were less rude and unkind.
In his column "We are all in this together," (June 25 of The Signal), Kevin Buck writes that what conservatives are calling socialism is just government doing the job it was created to do.
MSNBC reported on June 21 that while Hillary Clinton has not announced a presidential candidacy, the Republican super PAC America Rising launched "Stop Hillary 2016" in an effort to "prevent Americans from ever having to see another Clinton in the White House."
Richard Myers' recent letter in The Signal poses a logical question: if Congress has only a 10 percent favorable rating, why do 90 percent of the incumbents continue to be re-elected? Mr. Myers ends with, "Let's do something. Any ideas?"
I enjoyed skimming the 60 comments posted in response to my published letter last week. The comments showed me how much interest there might have been for Saturday's "Muhammad, Messenger of Peace" event at the Newhall Library.
The article by Jim Miller ("How to spot senior financial fraud," June 17 issue of The Signal) was very timely indeed.
A few weeks ago there was a column in which the author said he could move to Texas because Austin was such a progressive place.
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.
