Sequoia Students Visit School's Namesakes Sequoia Charter School junior high students embraced their namesake and took a trip to the Sequoia National Forest.

Some stores strive to carry big name brands that consumers easily recognize, while others embrace the challenge of stocking their racks with lesser-known labels. In a store devoted exclusively to wine and wine accessories, you are more likely to discover lesser-known boutique wines that don't enjoy the benefit of large marketing budgets and advertising dollars to promote them.

The most charitable thing we can say about the otherwise insufferable "Observe and Report" is that it shows Seth Rogen has some range.
"Hannah Montana: The Movie" just shouldn't be analyzed from an adult perspective - which, frankly, is irrelevant.

The liberals are having a field day trying to convince people that first, there is no socialism and second, that someone has to think for the masses (aka Larry King on CNN the other night).
Gone are the days when people sat around a radio, curled up in their pajamas in the family living room to partake in a new adventure. For students at Old Orchard Elementary School in Valencia, this classic experience was not lost on them.

It seems like spring in the Santa Clarita Valley! The calendar officially still says winter, but this past week has been very "spring-like."
