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 Friday, Sept. 11, the 254th day of 2009. There are 111 days left in the year. This is Patriot Day.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Sept. 11, 2001, America saw its worst day of terrorism. Nearly 3,000 people died when two hijacked jetliners smashed into New York’s World Trade Center, causing the twin towers to fall; a commandeered jetliner plowed into the Pentagon; and a fourth hijacked plane was crashed in a field in western Pennsylvania.

Watercooler Talk
LACEY TOWNSHIP (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles fans thirsty for predictions on whether their team will win or lose each week won’t get them from a New Jersey pigskin-prognosticating camel. Princess, the star of Popcorn Park Zoo, won’t predict the results of any Eagles games this season to protest the signing of quarterback Michael Vick. Vick spent 18 months in prison for organizing a dogfighting ring.

The 2,600-pound camel went 17-4 last year and correctly picked the Pittsburgh Steelers to win the Super Bowl.

The zoo’s manager places a graham cracker in each hand, and writes the name of a competing team on each hand. Whichever hand Princess eats from is her “pick.”
