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, Oct. 2, the 275th day of 2009. There are 90 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Oct. 2, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson suffered a stroke at the White House that left him paralyzed on his left side.

Ten years ago: The Brooklyn Museum of Art opened its much-hyped “Sensation” exhibit which had drawn controversy because of New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s move to cut off city funding to the museum. (Giuliani objected to some of the artwork, which included a portrait of the Virgin Mary decorated with elephant dung.)

Watercooler Talk
HELENA (AP) — Call it a case of Christmas creep. A young mule deer in Montana is ushering in the holiday season early. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game warden Kevin Cook says the buck got mixed up with a string of Christmas lights and now they are hanging from his antlers and body. The agency started getting reports about the decorated deer near Fort Harrison last week.
Cook says the buck probably became entangled when he rubbed his antlers on a tree. He says the department is keeping an eye on the animal, but so far it seems to be full of mule-tide cheer.
Cook says similar incidents have happened previously, including a deer with a swing in its antlers and another sporting a clothes line, complete with clothing.
