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:

Today is Wednesday, Sept. 23, the 266th day of 2009. There are 99 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Sept. 23, 1952, Sen. Richard M. Nixon, R-Calif., facing calls to withdraw as Dwight D. Eisenhower’s running mate, went on television to defend himself against allegations of improper campaign fundraising. The address, which came to be known as the “Checkers” speech because of Nixon’s on-air reference to a dog given to his family as a gift, proved highly successful in rallying public support for keeping Nixon on the GOP ticket.

Watercooler Talk
LAKELAND (AP) — It’s game over for some police officers who played video games while they raided a convicted drug dealer’s home in central Florida.

Surveillance video obtained by WFLA in Tampa caught the officers playing a Nintendo Wii bowling game, with one furiously jumping up and down in celebration. Officials say some of the officers could be disciplined.

Officers with the anti-drug task force had just stormed into the home of the convicted drug dealer, who was already in custody. One Polk County sheriff’s detective can be seen taking several breaks from cataloging evidence so she can bowl frames.

The officers did not know a video camera had been set up in the house before the March raid.
