Welcome to Pacific Standard Time! I hope everyone remembered to "fall back" last night.

We're a week late in returning to standard time, but I'm happy to finally have had that extra hour of sleep.

When you're out and about this morning remember to watch the roads for runners participating in the Santa Clarita Marathon.

Welcome to Paul De La Cerda
The Mighty Signal welcomes Paul De La Cerda. Paul is our new director of operations and marketing. Welcome!

HMNMH Guild Fashion Show
The annual Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Guild fashion show held at the Sheraton Universal in Universal City was glam and fab as always.

Kudos to Shelley Hann and Tamra Levine for co-chairing such a magnificent event! However, it was sad to know that fashion icon Mr. Blackwell, a regular attendee, would not be present. He died on Oct. 19 at age 86.
