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 Friday, Oct. 16, the 289th day of 2009. There are 76 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History: On Oct. 16, 1859, radical abolitionist John Brown led a group of 21 men in a raid on Harpers Ferry in western Virginia, where they seized a U.S. arsenal in hopes of sparking a slave revolt. (In the siege that followed, 10 of Brown's men were killed and five escaped. Brown and six followers were captured; all were executed.) .

Ten years ago: A 7.1-magnitude earthquake in the Mojave Desert shook three states and derailed an Amtrak train, but caused no serious damage.

LEBANON, Pa. (AP) - Police in central Pennsylvania say they've nabbed a real pothead. They said an officer spotted 29-year-old Cesar Lopez inside a convenience store with a bag of marijuana stuck to his forehead. Investigators said Lopez was seen peering inside his baseball cap early Saturday morning in Lebanon, about 75 miles northwest of Philadelphia. When Lopez looked up, the officer noticed a small plastic bag appearing to contain marijuana stuck to his forehead.
Police said the officer peeled the bag off Lopez's forehead and placed him under arrest. He has been charged with drug possession. Police do not know whether Lopez has an attorney.
Authorities say the sweatband of a baseball cap is a frequent hiding place for drugs.
