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, Sept. 21, the 264th day of 2009. There are 101 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History: On Sept. 21, 1897, responding to a letter from 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon, the New York Sun ran its famous editorial by Francis P. Church that declared, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy."

One year ago: "Mad Men" became the first basic-cable show to win the top series Emmy; "30 Rock."

Watercooler Talk

LAKE WORTH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities said a naked 91-year-old man was able to hold a drunken intruder at gunpoint until deputies arrived. Robert E. Thompson jumped out of bed early Saturday when his dog starting growling and attacking the intruder. He said he got his revolver and went out back to let the guy know how he felt about home invaders.

Thompson, a World War II veteran, said he didn't even notice he was standing outside in the dark without any clothes on.

Authorities arrived to find a drunk intruder being held outside by a naked homeowner.

The 26-year-old intruder was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a burglary charge.
