The annual Silver Spur Celebration is one of the swankiest events a resident of the Santa Clarita Valley can attend. The 2009 recipients of the College of the Canyons Silver Spur Award for Community Service, Harold and Jacquie Petersen, are two of my favorite people.

Their big night was a $250-a-plate fundrasing dinner to benefit the COC Foundation. The event was held at one of the fanciest hotels in Beverly Hills, and it will surely be one of my favorite events of 2009. I've heard Shannon Munoz worked very hard on the evening.

Kudos to her and to the co-chairs Gary and Myrna Condie and Jeff and Kiki Hacker.

Watch Dick Norton on ‘Deal or No Deal'
Valencia resident Dick Norton will appear on the Monday episode of the new half-hour daily version of "Deal or No Deal" at 3:30 p.m. (first show airs at 3 p.m.) on KNBC 4. He was the lucky one of out 22 contestants who had a chance to play the game for the top prize. Norton is married with four children. Two of his children are adopted from Korea. I hope he wins the $500,000 top prize!

This is so wrong!
Christina Bub of Canyon Country recently wrote The Signal to alert us to this unfortunate event.

"Every year Canyon High School choir goes on a tour during spring break. Last year it was Washington, D.C., and this year they are headed to Hawaii to sing at Pearl Harbor and the state Capitol for Hawaii's 50th anniversary as a state.

The kids have been working hard to raise money for their trip and recently have hit a snag. The group originally booked their flight on one airline at quite a cost and then were able to secure much cheaper airfare on another airline. Even with the $50 cancellation fee the choir was saving a nice sum of money.

Here is the snag.

The original airline sent the refund check back to Canyon High choir by way of the travel agency that booked the original flight. The travel agency has since gone out of business and $6,100 of the choir's money is now tied up in bankruptcy court.

The tour is fast approaching and to offset the loss the kids now have to come up with more money to pay for their meals which were originally covered."
