Zonta Pillow Project
Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley is looking for local women who sew and would be willing to help with a service project for breast cancer patients that the club will start this fall. With the help of volunteer seamstresses, the club plans to make heart-shaped pillows with a pocket for a hot or cold pack to give comfort for women after a mastectomy. Each pillow takes about 5/8 yard of fabric (1 3/4 yards make four pillows), preferably a soft, washable fabric in bright, cheery colors. Zonta would welcome donations of fabric, thread, fiberfill or Velcro, and also would welcome volunteers who would be willing to help fabricate a few of the pillows.

Today in history

Today is Sunday, Dec. 30, the 365th day of 2012. There is one day left in the year.
On this date in the SCV: On this day in 2004, county Supervisor Michael Antonovich wrote a letter to Mexican President Vincente Fox demanding Armando Garcia’s extradition to the United States. Garcia was suspected of killing a local sheriff’s deputy.
Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 30, 1962, the Green Bay Packers defeated the New York Giants 16-7 in the NFL Championship Game; the event was filmed by Blair Motion Pictures, which later became NFL Films.
Ten years ago: A suspected extremist killed three U.S. missionaries at a Baptist hospital in Yemen. (The gunman, Abed Abdul Razak Kamel, was executed in Feb. 2006.) China catapulted a fourth unmanned craft into orbit.
Five years ago: Kenya’s President Mwai Kibaki was declared winner of an election opponents and observers alleged was rigged; violence flared in Nairobi slums and coastal resort towns, killing scores in the following days. Benazir Bhutto’s 19-year-old son, Bilawal Zardari, was named symbolic leader of her Pakistan Peoples Party, while her husband took effective control.
One year ago: North Korea warned the world there would be no softening of its position toward South Korea’s government following Kim Jong Il’s death as Pyongyang strengthened his son and heir’s authority with a new title: “Great Leader.” Russell Brand announced that he and Katy Perry were divorcing after 14 months of what appeared to be a storybook marriage.
