Hello, Santa Clarita Valley! Welcome to's Daybreak, your point of entry for the day, and a quick journey through the past, present and future. Let the adventure begin:

Today is Monday, June 1, the 152nd day of 2009. There are 213 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On June 1, 1813, the mortally wounded commander of the U.S. frigate Chesapeake, Capt. James Lawrence, said, "Don't give up the ship" during a losing battle with a British frigate, the HMS Shannon, during the War of 1812.

Five years ago: A federal judge declared the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act unconstitutional, saying the measure infringed on women's right to choose. (The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law in April 2007.)

Watercooler Talk
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - Polly wants a passport - and isn't above stealing one.

A brazen parrot, which spotted a Scottish man's passport in a colored bag in the luggage compartment under a tour bus, nabbed the document and made off into dense bush with it, the Southland Times newspaper reported Friday.

The bird - a parrot of the Kea variety - made its move while the bus was stopped along the highway to Milford Sound on South Island, and the driver was looking through the compartment.

Police told the newspaper the passport has not been recovered and is unlikely to be located in the vast Fiordland rain forest.
