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 Thursday, Dec. 3, the 337th day of 2009. There are 28 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On Dec. 3, 1984, thousands of people died after a cloud of methyl isocyanate gas escaped from a pesticide plant operated by a Union Carbide subsidiary in Bhopal, India.

Ten years ago: World Trade Organization talks collapsed in Seattle. Six firefighters died while battling a fire in an abandoned Worcester, Mass., industrial building. Scientists failed to make contact with the Mars Polar Lander after it began its fiery descent toward the Red Planet.

Watercooler Talk
MARIETTA, Ohio (AP) - Police said whoever donated a water jug to a charity in southeast Ohio probably didn't mean to be so generous. The jug contained about $1,500 worth of marijuana. Police said workers at a local Goodwill Industries site recently found four bags of marijuana when they looked inside a water jug left outside by an anonymous donor.
They turned the two-gallon metal jug and the pound or so of marijuana over to police on Friday.
Marietta police Capt. Jeff Waite said the jug is probably an antique. He said authorities would be more than happy for the jug's donor to come forward and claim it.
