Are you prepared for emergencies?

No one ever wants to believe that a major emergency will happen to them or their loved ones. Emergencies can be terrifying to even think about, but the truth is, being prepared before an emergency strikes can be the difference between life and death. It also greatly impacts how quickly an entire community can recover.

A family reunited

When I turned five and entered the big, wide world of kindergarten in a small public school, I suddenly realized I was "different" than everyone else. My introduction to the new school in upstate New York where my parents had moved to from the San Fernando Valley was a loud "Oh look! A 'Chinee' girl!"

An overnight success

A short and skinny girl stands in front of a class of third graders. She reads before them as her teacher asked her to do. That ambitious 7-year-old girl had just learned to read and is already a prodigy, setting an example for other pupils. As a reward for being an excellent reader, Naomi's teacher gives her a choice between a color pencil and an oil crayon. She chooses the crayon, a yellow crayon.

Queen of Broken Hearts

I'm a local artist and have spent the last several years in the Santa Clarita Valley, about 35 miles north of Los Angeles. I had some formal art training in high school and at the local community college. Otherwise, I am self-taught. Most of my work consists of color and black and white pencil drawings. I have also worked with acrylics.

Southend-On-Sea

I was probably in my early teens when my closest friend, John, and I decided to ride our bikes to Southend-On-Sea. Southend is a town about 40 miles outside London. It has the distinction of being London's closest seaside town (on the North Sea) and having the world's longest pier, which runs over 1.3 miles. It also had a wonderful amusement park called the Kursaal which I understand is very rundown with many of its attractions having closed.

Making over the Agua Dulce Women's Club

The Agua Dulce Women's Club was founded in 1948, with its landmark Clubhouse built shortly after that. The Agua Dulce Women's Club building quickly became the heart of Agua Dulce, hosting many community events, classes, functions, and celebrations. Over the years it has been lovingly kept together by the Club's members, their spouses, and volunteers from the community. Now, decades later, it needs more than just upkeep. The Agua Dulce Women's Club building needs a makeover.

Open Your Senses with Open Space

Summer in Santa Clarita is one of my favorite times of the year. Personally, I look forward to this season because we have more hours in the day to explore and enjoy the great outdoors. As a former parks commissioner and lifelong nature lover, it comes as no surprise that I'm a huge advocate for spending quality time outside. Because of great forethought, and support from the community and work by the City, Santa Clarita has an abundance of parks, trails and open spaces to enjoy. I am grateful to live and serve in a community that values the ...
