There is no doubt that the Santa Clarita Valley has a large variety of great restaurants and eateries. Somewhat of a hidden gem is Bricks on Lyons Avenue in Newhall. The restaurant puts a unique twist on a simple menu, serving gourmet yet reasonably priced burgers, sandwiches, salads, and sides. Additionally, they offer shakes, boba, beer, and wine. Not to mention, they use high-quality ingredients to support their interesting and ever expanding menu. The atmosphere of this restaurant is very LA-inspired. I found it incredibly relaxed and comfortable, with both inside and outside seating available and employees ready and willing to make your eating experience as enjoyable as possible. Overall, Bricks has a terrific menu and is great for parties of all ages. I’m sure that Bricks on Lyons will leave its mark on the SCV, bringing residents back eating here time and time again.


What does the word “community” mean? By definition it is, “All the people living in a particular area or place: "local communities". What about the word “pride”? Pride is defined as “the happy satisfied feeling somebody experiences when having or achieving something special that other people admire or that same feeling about another person’s accomplishments.”

A community is more than just a group of people living in a particular area. A community is a group of people we lean on when times are tough; our friends, family, and neighbors who are there for us when we need love, support and encouragement. Here in the Santa Clarita Valley we understand what community means at the core level and we understand what it is to be proud of our community. At Signal Multimedia, we have been working hard to create a special edition of our award winning newspaper dedicated to our Community Pride. Be sure to get your copy on Sunday, March 31, 2013. If you are not a subscriber yet – it’s not too late! Just call 661-259-1000 today.


Here’s the thing, at some point it may be required of most of us to help out our parents in a way for which we may not be prepared. Let’s face it, no matter how many times we hear the stories relayed, we find a way to believe they do not pertain to us. When we find ourselves in the middle of our own story, we may not be ready and where do we turn? My suggestion is Comfort Keepers In-Home Care in Newhall California.

The Comfort Keepers franchise in Santa Clarita is regarded as a trusted provider of quality in-home senior care services. These folks are a knowledgeable, go-to resource for valuable information on the full range of senior services available in the Santa Clarita Valley. It truly is the mission of these great folks to support families and seniors through the transitions of aging, as well as, help seniors achieve the highest quality of life. It is through the services they offer that they accomplish this mission.

So what sets them apart from other in-home care providers? Their one-of-a-kind approach to in-home care, Interactive Caregiving, is where they involve the client in their own in-home care, offering them a mix of physical activity, mental stimulation, emotional support and social engagement. After all, it is their independence and quality of life that is of the utmost concern.

The list of all the services provided by Comfort Keepers In-Home Care is extensive and I urge you to contact them for any questions you may have regarding this subject. Myles McNamara has owned and operated this local business for 11 years and has consistently provided seniors and their families with the highest quality of non-medical in-home care available. Not lost on me, is the peace of mind that comes with knowing that they are there to provide the road map for this inevitable part of life. Call them at 661-287-4200.


St. Stephen’s Preschool is a happy, secure place where your child can grow and flourish.

They first opened their doors in 1969 as a ministry of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. The preschool offers a traditional half-day preschool program for 2 – 5 year olds. Classes meet 2 or 3 days per week, depending on the age of your child. Also offering a 1-morning per week Parent Toddler program, this is a great opportunity for parents to participate in the growth of you and your child’s relationship. It’s also a great bonding experience for the two of you.
