I really thought it might snow on Wednesday. We got a little sleet and ice, but no flakes. Agua Dulce has all the luck. It was lovely to look at all the snow covered hills. Too bad it had melted away by Thursday.


Are you the next Miss SCV?

You may have seen the queens and princesses from the Miss SCV Scholarship Program around town, tiaras and sashes and raffle tickets in hand.

The ladies of the program are very active attending grand openings and selling raffle tickets at the many nonprofit events around the SCV.

This year’s pageant will be held June 16 at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center.

If you are interested in participating, there will be a pageant orientation on Feb. 26 at The Plaza, 23710 Lyons Ave., Newhall.

Orientation for girls 8-14 will be held at 5 p.m. Ladies 15 to adult will be held at 7 p.m.

There are Little Miss, Miss Teen, Miss, Ms. and Mrs. SCV categories.

To RSVP, call (661) 252-3232 or for more information, visit


Bob and Diane Benjamin were the perfect sweetheart couple for the annual Sweetheart Gala to benefit cardiac services at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital.

The elegant dinner was held at the Westridge home of Shelley and G. Marshall Hann.

The decor was fantastic with spectacular champagne tablecloths and deep red roses in centerpieces.

The food, from Tamra Levine of Salt Creek Grille Catering, also earned rave reviews from attendees.

Ed Masterson was the perfect emcee and a DJ from SOS Entertainment kept the mood lively and appearances from The Men of Harmony and the Canyon High School Madrigals set a romantic mood — beautiful.
