•  John Boston's History of the Santa Clarita Valley Class - Newhall was once attacked: by our own Air Force. As recently as the 1970s, there were Bigfoot sightings in Sand Canyon. Were we home to the world's biggest grizzly bear? A Chinese general once named Saugus as one of the top military targets on Earth. Placerita Canyon was named a national park. William S. Hart was almost murdered at his mansion. Santa Clarita is one of the most interesting and historically significant spots in America. This fall, through the SCV Historical Society, John Boston is offering his renowned and entertaining history class. The three-hour lecture series begins Sept. 17th, 6:30 p.m. and runs every Wednesday night until Nov. 19th. What makes the class unique is that it is held at a different and scenic location each week, ending with Boston's fabled Campfire Class that covers all the monster, gee-whiz and odd crime stories of our valley.

Fee for the class will be $120 plus $20 materials/location fee.

resource fair starts at 6pm, presentation starts at 7pm
Teen Scene Unplugged strives to provide parents with the tools they need to help them understand, and communicate better with, their teens. "Parenting/Understanding the Teen Brain" will feature Tina Bryson, PhD, lecturer, parenting educator, and director of parenting education and development at the Mindsight Institute. In her own genuine, practical and humorous way, Bryson will make brain science accessible, and discuss how the developing teen brain impacts teen behavior and decision making.
"There's a part of our brain that doesn't fully mature until the early 20s. And during the teenage years, it's under heavy construction. Understanding teen brain development, and applying that knowledge, can help us make good parenting decisions that will strengthen our relationship with our teenagers, and help them become the best persons they can be," said Bryson.
"Parenting teenagers is a monumental task and can be very challenging. Understanding the biological and physiological changes in our teenagers will help parents connect better and strengthen our relationship with our teens," said Mayor Pro-Tem Frank Ferry, who heads up the Blue Ribbon Task Force.
Teen Scene Unplugged is free. Parents may bring their teens along. Spanish translation is available during the program;
