Boston's Talent Will Be Missed

To The Editor:

Apparently great writing talent and an incredibly subtle, witty sense of humor doesn't count at the "new" Signal. Who chased off Mr. Santa Clarita, John Boston? Was that a corporate smooth move or just one of those dumb things that big- city newspapers do when they don't know how to deal with a truly talented, award-winning member of the staff who helped build the newspaper to what it has become today?

I faithfully read the Time Ranger, John Boston's regular editorial column and anything else he had to offer in our "local" newspaper which has gone "big city" and no longer recognizes our small town roots. I've lived in this town since 1975 and watched The Signal go through growing pains and changes from the Newhalls to the current conglomerate. No matter how biased the journalism may have been with the Newhalls (and you ALWAYS knew where they stood on any subject), it was a better paper than this has become.

It's a shame when an SCV icon can be disposed of without a thought or a mention for his brilliance and talent ... truly a shame.
