Editor’s Letter

I remember Easter as a child was always so exciting. My mom used to make our Easter dresses every year. I wish I had a photo of the painted and embroidered dresses she used to make for us. She would take organza and either paint with fabric paint, or embroider designs such as tulips, Easter eggs, or carrots. (For you crafters out there, do you remember Artex paint tubes?) I remember her making a dress for me with Bugs Bunny on it. I loved that dress. Who else wore Bugs Bunny on their Easter dress? Just me!

Uncle Tim’s World of Birds

Welcome to Uncle Tim's World of Birds! And what an exciting world it is, too. Birds are certainly one of the most amazing and interesting creatures to be found in this wide world and, take it from me, are just about the greatest thing there is to paint. Shapes, sizes, colors, textures, mannerisms – the variety is endless, so as a subject for painting they just can't be beat.

Taking the Steps to Stay Drug Free

No doubt most of us know of a young person, family member or friend who is dealing with the impacts of drug addiction. None of us wants to watch a young person's life disappear because of drugs. The City has worked hard to address this issue with our community partners and we believe that proactive education, peers modeling good behavior, and great support for positive conduct can make a difference.

Santa Clarita Valley Residents Helping Local Foster Children via CASA

As a 30-year resident of Valencia, I continue to marvel at our children's good fortune. I witnessed over three decades in my neighborhood and within my circle of friends how loving families nurtured their children – from babies on through childhood, then into the challenging teenage years, with those young adults graduating from college, who now have started their own families. I observed firsthand how our children thrived with high quality child care, as well as their joy from participation in community activities like team sports, dance classes, etc.
