Hello, Santa Clarita Valley! Welcome to The-Signal.com's Daybreak, your point of entry for the day, and a quick journey through the past, present and future. Let the adventure begin:
A big problem in the Santa Clarita Valley is hot weather in the summertime. Usually many communities provide several services like pools, tennis courts and playgrounds for kids. Some homes have their own pools in their back yards. Even though the community tries to make people as comfortable as possible, killing weather with temperatures hotter than 100 degrees Fahrenheit can make living in here miserable.

It is the 21st century and yet there is still no light at Vermont Drive and Lyons Avenue in Newhall.

How bad is the economy? If you only read our headline earlier this week about a "$68.6 Million Budget Reduction," you would think it is so bad that the city of Santa Clarita is slashing its budget by nearly one-third - from $241 million last year to just $172 million for the fiscal year starting July 1.
"Obama knows best" is the line we're getting from Washington for everything from the economy to foreign policy.
Several years ago I attended the visitation for the deceased father-in-law of a co-worker. While the family seemed fairly desolate concerning the death, my Midwestern stoicism and logic found little to connote tragedy.

Leftists of late have become very defensive about being called socialist in their ideology, as typified by Kevin Buck's column (Feb. 19, "Straw men live in glass houses").
Just a few short days ago the lanterns fell, bringing an end to Chinese New Year season for 2013.
