This month, why don't you share your love with the community?
"It's heartbreaking," says Joel Moss, as he ends a call with another SCV resident whose home was damaged by smoke during the Tick Fire. "Once the neighborhood repopulated, most people thought that they'd just open the doors and things would be like normal," says the co-owner of Paul Davis Restoration of Santa Clarita. "For a lot, it's not."
With 36 percent of all Americans using ride-share services like Uber and Lyft, and a whopping 51 percent of Americans 18 to 29 doing the same, ride-share liability has become an essential conversation in legal circles.
Would you let your pharmacist perform an emergency appendectomy?
Probably not - even though surgeons and pharmacists have similar starts to their medical education.
Fourth of July, Fire Safety and Summer Fun!
It's estimated that over 6 million traffic accidents occur in the United States each year, with more than 90 people dying in car accidents daily. With those kinds of statistics, it makes sense that we should do everything we can to reduce our risk of accidents, injury - or worse.
Sleep, sweetheart - sleep. A mom's reflection.
Great tips for welcoming your newest bundle.
The very best for Baby - and Mom!
The old adages, "Happy wife, happy life" and "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy" seem quaint - until there's a frustrated pregnant woman, struggling mom with a newborn or even an experienced (And still exhausted!) mother in the house. Then they make all the sense in the world! Taking care of Mom means that she's better able to take care of the ones she loves the most. Here are three ways that moms, new and otherwise, can take care through some of the most stressful - and rewarding - times of their lives.

EDUCATION & ENRICHMENT
Since the inception of this Academy over 15 years ago, my graduation messaging to our matriculating classes has been admittedly repetitive - and entirely sincere.
"I'm so very proud of each of you."
We asked 2020 SCV's Graduates to reflect on the school year - and share their thoughts as they look ahead to the future. Here is what they said...
In addition to their regular studies, extracurriculars and college prep, our graduating class also learned to persevere through wildfires, evacuations, a devastating campus shooting and a global pandemic that changed the entire educational system on a dime. After a year when our students overcame more than ever, they deserve a celebration commensurate of their strength, courage and achievements. That's exactly why Inside SCV Magazine wanted to do something extra special for the Class of 2020.
This fall, I'll celebrate my 20th year as a professor. The best parts of my job are my "co-workers," the students who join me every week to do the hard work of changing thought processes, understanding how symbols are used and abused in our culture and learning how to advocate for self and others.
In 2007, I was honored to be named Santa Clarita's "Woman of the Year." It feels like a lifetime ago - because it was. Kyle and I have since weathered numerous storms, including losing his brother, Keith; thriving through an autism diagnosis for our son; and, well, life.
All of a sudden, I was without my people.
Words do not adequately express the emotional impact that the pandemic has had on this teacher - and I know I'm not alone. Teachers nationwide are in the same boat.
Simply - we miss our kids.
A girl's gotta ride a lot of horses, or - in this case - board enough of them to know what she wants in a facility.
You won't want to miss this "Alice" inspired tea party!
Summer's the perfect time for a family vacation, but what do you do when your four-footed family member isn't welcome at the hotel, camp site or a relative's house? You'll need to decide whether or not Fido will be hanging out at home or boarded while you're gone.
I am an early riser. I guess I've always liked to get up before the crack of dawn, brew a pot of coffee, let the dogs out and read the morning news all in the peace and quiet of a home and neighborhood still fast asleep.
JACK RUSSELL WANTS TO MELT YOUR HEART AND LICK YOUR FACE
I may be small, but I like my kisses super-sized. Just like Clark Gable, I'm a gentleman. Sure, I'm only 2 or 3 years old, but I have lots of experience being a good boy on walks and while playing - indoors and out. Folks say that my eyes are my best feature - wouldn't you like to stare into them? I may be your Puppy Soul Mate!
Anyone who has ever tried it will tell you that starting your own business is a scary proposition. Most waged their own private war with doubt. Am I doing the right thing? I know I have a valuable service, but how do I let the community know about it? Is there a niche for my business here in Santa Clarita? Those are fair questions - questions every local budding entrepreneur and businesses owner should ask, must ask, really. And they do.
FAMILY FEATURES
The 2019-2020 academic school year taught us all many lessons about what's truly important. It shaped the next generation of leaders with an irreversible sense of community, strength and compassion.
When I heard my friend Mike McGrath died, it took my breath away. I'm not sure why it was such a surprise. He was 83 (the same age as my mom when she died) and the last time I saw him, he was starting to slow down a bit.
