When you have kids, you can spend your whole morning getting them out the door, only to realize your coffee is cold, you haven’t gotten something to eat, but you have to head to work.

For those lucky enough to commute through or work in Newhall, Railroad Café can be your lifesaver any day of the week, with delicious coffee, tea and lattes, as well as breakfast sandwiches, muffins, organic granola and oatmeal.

I figured coffee bars tended to have a morning following, but Railroad Café is also making a name for itself in local evening entertainment. It hosts drum circles, comedy nights and live music most weekends, giving you a fun way to spend your night without making a long drive. Luckily, they serve decaf, so you can still fall asleep after a night out!

I love it when I find little boutique type stores that I didn’t know existed, and especially when I am not even looking. For me, it is very much like a present from the day. I cannot say that this is a recent find, but when I found Propinquities, it was very much like a present. Walking into this store is like walking into the pages of a magazine, it is that beautifully appointed. Not a speck of space is wasted, as everywhere my eye goes I see something that I must have, which is the only stressful thing about this boutique, and I want it all!

Propinquities offers so much that speaks to your senses… including, but not limited to your fashion sense. You can please your home, as well, with so many things inside of this store including things for hanging, for smelling and bathing. I truly love each and every experience I have when visiting Propinquities…there is ALWAYS something inside waiting to come with me!

I encourage you to visit Propinquities and see for yourself, what treasure you might find waiting for you… 24417 Walnut Street in Old Town Newhall.




The great thing about Santa Clarita is that everyone takes pride in seeing business prosper – even beyond the first generation of owners.

After 30 years of quality service, Frank and Loel Bennetti have passed Same Day Auto Body and Paint to new owners Jack and Elisa Dunning. In the first few months of the transition, it’s clear that the body repair shop will continue its reputation of great customer service because Jack and Elisa have a lot of experience in the automotive industry, working with insurance companies. Jack began his career as a claims adjuster 31 years ago and Elisa worked nine years on behalf of car owners take some of the stress out of the process.

This is why it’s so great to work in the SCV – you, your kids and your grandkids can rely on the same businesses because we all care about keeping the top-notch companies and services thriving. Bring your car in for a free written estimate at 23951 Newhall Avenue or call them at 661-255-3806. And let me and The Signal know which businesses in the valley you hope your grandchildren can utilize.
