Why all the screaming?

You know, for what appears to be about a $12-a-month hike per water bill, there is sure a lot of screaming going on. Too bad we don’t get that kind of response for other, more vital items like resurfacing and restriping our roads and fixing pot holes.

If our City Council had paid attention to the city vote which was supposed to stop or slow development, instead of running rampant to turn us into another highly congested San Fernando Valley with a fungus growth shopping center on every corner, and most of our water table paved over, we wouldn’t be overpopulated and over-salting our water supply.

Whatever happened to the American tradition of being a good neighbor? Obviously, the Ventura County farmers are seeing a problem with the water they inherit in the chain from our area. This country has no manufacturing base anymore and a smaller and constantly shrinking area for food raised at home. When I see the huge number of fruits and vegetables we are importing — I am sure is nice for them, but you have to wonder about the crap spilled into the air and ocean from the huge ships that carry it all here. Not to mention, what do other countries use as fertilizer? I am pretty sure they don’t have the control we have over dangerous pesticides.

Anything we can do to keep local farmers in business is a good thing and certainly worth a lousy $12 per month, which could be easily “found” by drinking a couple less cans of soda a week and/or buying a safe bottle to carry water from home instead of spending a fortune on bottled water.

We do not have the same population base in Santa Clarita that we used to. I would like an in-depth article in The Signal about the people who are so publicly screaming and spending money for full-page ads in the paper. Who are they? What ax do they have to grind?

Come on, The Signal, get back to basics and tell us what is really behind all the screaming.
