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, Dec. 4, the 338th day of 2009. There are 27 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Dec. 4, 1619, settlers from Bristol, England, arrived at Berkeley Hundred in present-day Charles City County, Va., where they held a service thanking God for their safe arrival. (Some suggest that this was America’s true first Thanksgiving.)

One year ago: For the first time, an NFL game was broadcast live in 3-D to theaters in Boston, New York and Los Angeles.

Watercooler Talk
SHIRLEY, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island convenience store owner who showed mercy to a would-be robber said he’s received an apology note and $50 in the mail. The unsigned note said it was from the man who tried to rob Mohammad Sohail. It said the would-be robber has a new job, a new child, and is staying out of trouble.
Sohail is saving the $50 for charity.

The bat-wielding man tearfully told Sohail in May that he was trying to feed his family. The rifle-toting businessman gave him $40 and bread, and made him promise never to rob again.

The man disappeared when Sohail went to get milk for the family.
