Vasquez High School: The Dream Comes True
Sunday, Aug 30, 2015

For most people in the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys, Saturday was like most August days – hot, dry, uneventful. But for the communities of Acton and Agua Dulce, it was a day of joy and celebration … the culmination of more than a decade of work, support and hope that finally materialized...

Bridge the Gap
Thursday, Jul 31, 2014

It’s funny how so many of us have an interest in history and “the old days.” They are the focus of many of our movies, they serve as inspiration for many of our clothes and home décor, and the they are topic of many a conversation. Many people pine for the times that were simpler and therefore...

Pull Down That Box
Thursday, Jul 3, 2014

I have always found our relationship with photos very interesting. As time passes and technology makes it easier to capture a moment – I still cannot believe the things our smart phones and cameras can do – we take incredible numbers of photos. We have an inherent desire to preserve moments...

Dad’s Footsteps
Thursday, Jun 19, 2014

My name is Sarah, and I am an addict. I have realized over the past few years that I have a time-consuming and occasionally expensive obsession.

I have noticed that in terms of volunteering, there are three types of people: those who have no interest in working for free; those who wouldn’t necessarily volunteer on their own but often get lassoed in by their friends or significant others; and those who have an inherent passion...

Save and Be Saved
Thursday, Apr 10, 2014

It’s a well-known fact that thousands and thousands of domesticated animals die in California shelters every year because there are simply too many of them. In my humble opinion, it is one of the larger problems in our society. It puts a lot of pressure on the economy to finance the care and housing...

Don’t Kill That Snake
Saturday, Mar 1, 2014

With the warm weather we have been having, it seems we have skipped right over winter and jumped into spring. In the last few weeks, critters such as insects, lizards, birds and snakes have been making their way out into the sun, drawn to the warmth of these sunny days. During this time, some helpful...

Mischievous and Irresistible
Thursday, Feb 13, 2014

Can you imagine an animal so adaptable, it can not only survive, but also thrive in both the forest and major urban areas? With hands like a human and fingers so dexterous, they can undo clasps, gates, boxes and bags? You probably have figured out I am referring to the raccoon – an animal I believe...

Brave Li’l Darlin’
Thursday, Jan 30, 2014

The American kestrel (Falco sparverius) is a fascinating little titan. Also known as sparrow hawks, they are the smallest raptor, or bird of prey, in North America, usually smaller than a pigeon. They are often confused for smaller bird species and can be hard to distinguish, since they move quickly...

Vasquez vs. Placerita
Sunday, Jan 19, 2014

The prehistoric period in California is often considered one of the most interesting in the world due to the highly complex indigenous cultural systems that flourished there. More distinct cultural groups and languages coexisted in California during the pre-Spanish period than any other region in the...
