After 33 years in the Old Pasadena retail and entertainment district, the Doo Dah Parade will bring its notorious brand of wackiness across town on Saturday, May 1, stepping off at 11 a.m. The relocation to East Colorado Boulevard places the parade in an older, retro neighborhood reminiscent of its long-ago 'Old Town' roots. In fact, this year's Grand Marshal is Corky Peterson, former proprietor of Chromo's Tavern, where the Doo Dah Parade was actually ...
Forget about the plot, the actors and the director. What you require to make a new "Nightmare on Elm Street" are these three off-the-shelf sound effects: 1. A sudden, loud clanging noise mixed with a musical chord. 2. Snicker-snack sounds, which Freddy Krueger's steel finger claws make every time they are seen. 3. A voice deepener, to drop Freddy's speaking voice to an ominous level. On top of that, you need your sudden cuts, your ...
It felt more like winter than spring early Thursday with icy conditions closing Interstate 5 through the Grapevine for two hours during the morning commute.
Welcome to The-Signal.com's "2day in the SCV," a compendium of today's events and a quick journey through the past, present and future.
A patent will not make you rich. Sure, there have been people who have accumulated great wealth from new ideas, but there are also people who have won the super-jackpot lotteries.

I drive to work every morning, and drive home every day past the lighthouse at the corner of Newhall Ranch Road and McBean Parkway.
This morning (April 28), I woke to the sound of the jail alarm. I know this sound; we've heard it before, and I'm sure we'll hear it again. Soon after waking I heard prisoner-hunting helicopters overhead. I told my daughter I would take her to school instead of her walking, and upon arriving at Valencia High School we were greeted to the sight of a helicopter hovering over the campus. Clearly, the officials at the ...
As a county resident, living just two miles outside city limits, I watched the recent (City Council) election with much concern.
There was a recent letter to the editor ("Get it right the first time," April 3) asking if the city of Santa Clarita could get it right the first time.

The College of the Canyons baseball team went into its final game of the season on Thursday, hoping to get a win and a chance to go after its third straight Western State Conference championship. The Cougars got the win, but it wasn't enough to get them a title or into the Southern California Regional playoffs.
The West Ranch boys tennis team closed the Foothill League season with a 16-2 victory over Saugus on Thursday at West Ranch High School. After failing to win a match in the preseason, the Wildcats have established themselves as the No. 2 team in league.
While the Valencia boys volleyball team marches toward the state record for consecutive league victories, the focus never changes. Even after earning their 90th consecutive Foothill League match with a 3-0 win over Golden Valley on Thursday by scores of 25-20, 25-17, 25-15, the Vikings' mindset remains firmly set on winning championships.
"If I see you on the news wearing a crazy hat with Lipton tea bags stapled around the brim, with a misspelled sign, screaming at Parkinson's patients and biting people's fingers off - all bets are off. I will, at that point, stage an intervention!"
It was a sad day when the Greenhouse Cafe closed. It was a great place for our group Newcomers and Friends to enjoy lunch and play games. All of the employees were cordial and we became friends.
Recently I watched as our president stood at the podium on the patio of the White House and announced his decision to seek congressional approval before unleashing military action against Syria.
It's an honor to be selected to attend either of the week-long summer leadership sessions held at the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis or the United States Military Academy at West Point. But being selected for both is nearly unheard of.
The new requirements for No Child Left Behind waivers from the Department of Education have some bad news for America's teachers.
Republicans have largely squandered an August that should have been spent preparing the American people for a showdown with Democrats over the president's health care law.
This summer, the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce will host the third annual Patriot Luncheon on July 11 at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich will address the Santa Clarita Valley business and community leaders on May 1 at the fifth annual State of the County Luncheon.
We all know that perception often influences our decisions, yet we catch ourselves and become reminded that what we perceive isn't always what's really going on. With the constant barrage of information available in today's 24/7 world, it's important to not get caught up in the day-to-day market volatility and news headlines. That daily hype doesn't always dovetail with what Wells Fargo Advisors top strategists are observing in the financial marketplace.
