Hello, Santa Clarita Valley! Welcome to's Daybreak, your point of entry for the day, and a quick journey through the past, present and future. Let the adventure begin:

"Despite the inclusion of a much-needed spending cap, Prop 1A comes at too high of a price.” - Cameron Smyth, 38th District Assemblyman.

Today is Sunday, May 10, the 130th day of 2009. There are 235 days left in the year. This is Mother’s Day.

Today’s Highlight in History
On May 10, 1869, a golden spike was driven in Promontory, Utah, marking the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in the United States.

Ten years ago:
China broke off talks on arms control with the United States, and allowed demonstrators to hurl stones at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing for a third day to protest NATO’s bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia.

Watercooler talk
LITITZ, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania high school ordered more than 450 shot glasses for its prom, a move the assistant principal now says sent the wrong message.

As the Warwick High School students left last week’s dance, the prom committee handed them souvenir shot glasses. The girls who attended last year’s prom got a picture frame; the boys, a money clip.

Assistant Principal Scott Galen says: “Unfortunately, this year the junior class didn’t have quite as much money.”

Galen says the principal signed off on the purchase order, but that paperwork simply said “prom souvenir” and didn’t identify the mementos as shot glasses. Galen says he’s certain this will never happen again.
