A few months ago, we were incredibly excited to have legendary icon, Willie Nelson, grace the cover of élite Magazine.  Who knew that just two issues later we would be featuring country superstar LeAnn Rimes?  It is such an honor for us to have her come to our hometown and take stage at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons.  We are looking forward to seeing her perform for our City and we are even more pleased to feature her on the cover of this issue.  This special keepsake issue will not only be distributed to the thousands of homes and businesses in our valley, but also to fans attending the LeAnn Rimes concert on Sunday, September 28.  Be sure and read about LeAnn and how she found success in the world of music at such a young age.
It’s hard to believe that Dancing With Our Stars event is now in its 5th year.  Seems like yesterday that we were creating the event, which, in its inaugural year, raised over $75,000.  With many hours of planning and organizing, the event has become bigger and even more successful, raising well over $600,000 to date, to benefit local non-profit organizations.  Get ready for more excitement, as this year’s Dancing With Our Stars will take place on Friday, August 22.
Our Looking Back feature highlights one of Santa Clarita’s most dedicated and committed residents.  Take a look back at the life of Connie Worden-Roberts, and how she played a role in the formation of the City of Santa Clarita.
It is an honor for me to have been chosen as one of the six women who will be recognized at the Single Mothers Outreach Empowering HeArts Gala.  Over the past 24 years, I have been involved with many non-profit organizations on a business and personal level, and it is my joy to work with all the wonderful people who help make our community a great one to live in.  We are looking forward to attending the event on November 1.  Learn more about the honorees in our Celebrating Women Who Make a Difference.
Santa Claritans love a good dish, and there’s no doubt there is an abundance of great places to eat in the SCV.  Learn more about the masterminds behind the meals, their culinary experience along with their favorite dish in our Meet the Chefs feature.  Be sure and check out the results of the Ultimate Dining Awards and see who our readers voted the best of the best.  Stay tuned for the winners of the Ultimate Beauty and Ultimate Fitness to be announced in the October/November issue.

Sometimes finding the answers to medical questions can be difficult.  There’s no better resource than asking the professionals themselves.  Find some answers to commonly asked questions in our Ask the Medical Experts feature.
Lastly, we hope you had a wonderful summer vacation and enjoyed a little bit of the spirit of this City we call home.  We look forward to the upcoming months and all the finer things in life that Santa Clarita has to offer.
