Magician performs at Londoner

Most people would shy away from labeling themselves as a "professional idiot" or injuring themselves for the amusement of others. Yet for Michael Todd, labels of his mental state and injuries to his person are essential to attracting a crowd - and attract a crowd he did on Sunday. The crowd, whose reactions varied from fainting to cheering, packed The Londoner pub and bar in Canyon Country to watch Todd as he swallowed swords, walked on needles and stuck pins through his neck and arm.

Fresh off his historic performance at Hollywood's Magic Castle - where Todd's traveling troupe was ...

COC student fights for Lupus awareness

Most people take for granted taking a stroll down one of Santa Clarita Valley's many paseos or a bike ride through the area's surrounding canyons on a sunny yet mild spring day. Yet for 23-year-old Saugus resident Jena Minassian, sometimes just getting out of bed and walking can be tough.

Minassian is one of 1.5 million Americans who suffer from Lupus, a potentially fatal disease that attacks the body's major organs or tissues. The disease primarily strikes women - according to Minassian, nearly nine of 10 people who suffer from Lupus are female.

Program expected to curb dog fighting

Determined to crack down on illegal dog fighting in the wake of the Michael Vick case, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office has teamed up with the Humane Society of the United States and last week launched a reward program which they hope will encourage people to report the crime.

Tipsters will be able to use the county's 211 information line to report suspected dog fighting activities in their neighborhoods, and will be eligible for a $5,000 cash reward if they provide information that leads to a conviction.

Newhall Incident: Murders left former reporter numb

Sometimes it takes decades to even remotely feel pain. Although I wrote many of the words used by Southern California news media and, in turn, by the national television and radio networks in describing the massacre of four young California Highway Patrol officers, my emotions surrounding the episode were fleeting.

After all, as an editor at City News Service of Los Angeles, a job that, coupled with on-and-off stints at The Signal provided college tuition money, I had covered tragedies that had seemingly become as much a part of Southern California as palm trees.

Newhall Incident: The day that shook our valley

It was a different world on April 6, 1970, when four young California Highway Patrol officers were shot and killed in one of the state's bloodiest gun battles.

What's now the Santa Clarita Valley was then a patchwork of farms and ranches, dotted with small businesses. What happened on that day 38 years ago, however, shattered the valley's quiet forever with a violence that echoes today.

Castro trial focuses around 2 items

SAN FERNANDO - During a relatively tame day of court proceedings after Wednesday's heated testimony, witnesses in the case against Esperanza Castro gave testimony about a vehicle Castro reported as stolen shortly after the crime, and a note allegedly passed from her to another inmate during her incarceration last year.

Though both prosecution and defense attorneys grilled the witnesses on the minutiae of the two events, the limited nature of Friday's testimony did not make it clear exactly whether these pieces of evidence pointed to Castro's guilt or innocence.
