The loss of Bob and Teri Dixon last Saturday in a heartbreaker for so many of their friends in the SCV. It would be nice if the Signal could give the Dixon story some attention. Respectfully,
Where do you go to get a Covid19 vaccination around here? Anybody know? I'm 81 yr old.
Hi neighbors, are any of you app developers or know app developers? I’m working with homeless neighbors, various organizations in town (like Bridge to Home, RISE at CoC, and Rotary Satellite), and the city’s Homelessness Task Force to create an app (or section of an existing app like WIN) that will connect homeless neighbors with direct needs (ex. size 6 sneakers, help with wound washing, eyeglasses) with individuals in town looking to help and vice versa (ex. have some extra pizza, wonder if someone wants it). We refer to this as the point of care app and amongst many things, it can help reduce waste, create efficiencies in aid, and help establish long-term volunteer case management/ mentorship relationships that can help our homeless neighbors get back on their feet. We’re currently looking for app developers 🙏🏻! Thank you!
This story involves the niece of a Santa Clarita resident. It is absolutely heartbreaking!
Vallarta Supermarkets Store# 19 at 23449 Lyons Avenue, Newhall, CA is refusing entry to persons no wearing a mask, despite their medical condition! The very same Governor order that you are enforcing to wear masks, also give exemptions to people with medical conditions. Essentially, you are discriminating against disabled persons, and you offered no accommodation. You were advised of the medical condition and reason for not wearing a mask, and still refused service and kicked them out of the store. Called your "corporate" office and the woman there says they are not going to change anything. So I guess if you are disabled, DO NOT SHOP HERE. They will treat you like a criminal and kick you out!
