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:

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.

We can't afford health care. No more schools for kindergartners. We have to let prisoners out. Cut budgets for fire departments and police departments. No more money for seniors. Unemployment funds run out.
It is the 21st century and yet there is still no light at Vermont Drive and Lyons Avenue in Newhall.

I am an instructor at Glendale Community College and I have worked in ...

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.

I love history. I plan to purchase the Blu-Ray of the recent film "Lincoln" and rewatch certain key scenes 100 times in a row, unapologetically.
In Santa Clarita, the arts influence our community's quality of life. Without even realizing it, the arts act as an economic driver - creating and supporting jobs, generating revenue and serving as a cornerstone of the tourism industry.
