Bad Times, Good Times

Written by

2014_digital

2013.

The year has come and gone in the blink of an eye.

We saw a great many events, both good and bad. We experienced joy, adventure, and loss alike with those in our community.

2014 ushers in a chance to begin freshly. Let's take what we learned this past year and apply ourselves to move onward. Advance our lives into the great potential we've been called to.

The most important thing to hold closely is family. Both our biological families, and our community as a family. We all live here together, and the opportunity to improve our livelihoods presents itself daily. Share an act of kindness with someone. Someone random. Spend time with your children. Smile often.

For some, 2013 was a year of loss. While our words can offer little comfort to those who have gone through the unimaginable, we can say this - Thank you for allowing us to work with you. Keep your loved ones close in your heart. They will never be too far.

For us at CVTV, it was a tremendous year. We experienced significant growth in viewership, climaxing in a landslide of traffic to our website and social media platforms. We've felt a great honor to serve our community through our passion of delivering news. For that, we say thank you.

2014 will challenge us to better serve our community as we expand on new ideas and projects we wish to implement. We hope these projects will bring more to the table for our audience to experience.

Our website could use a tune up. We plan to make it mobile friendly in the near future with a new re-design as a large portion of our traffic comes from viewers on the go via tablets and cell phones. This is a great focus for our future.

We're nearly ready to launch a spanish version of CVTV, tentatively called "Telecentral" in the hopes of serving the large hispanic population in the region. We've tracked a significant amount of spanish-speaking viewers using our service, so this looks like a natural idea to develop.

The idea of a "host-hunt" is being kicked around. We're testing the idea of having an "on camera" news presenter to see if it will create a better connection and understanding between our news product and our viewers.

A women's topic and health product is in the sketchbooks for us. "GLOW TV" is the working title for this project.

As always we are forever grateful to have you turn to us for information. Our humble organization is always working to provide the best service we can to you.

Happy New Year. We wish for many blessings to descend upon you and your loved ones. May the winds of 2014 carry you forward.

Let's do this.

Locals Pitted In Cage Match Tonight

Written by

FABER-MCDONALD

Oakdale's Michael McDonald and Sacramento's Urijah Faber are going toe to toe tonight in the octagon for UFC on FOX 9 in Sacramento's Sleep Train Arena.

We attended the weigh in yesterday, as McDonald widely smiled at Faber in a face off photo during a face off.

McDonald, with 27 fights at 22 years old, is one of the youngest UFC Fighters. He says he is tired of hearing people ask him "Hey, do you know Urijah Faber?" Looking for a win tonight, he says he'd love to reply "Yeah, I fought him and beat him."

The investigation of the traffic collision wherein Paul Walker and Roger Rodas lost their lives on Saturday, November 30, 2013, in the city of Santa Clarita is continuing. Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station traffic investigators are continuing to document the investigation.

At the conclusion of the on-scene traffic investigation the night of November 30th, the wrecked Porsche Carrera GT was loaded onto a contracted flat-bed tow truck to be transported to the impound yard for further investigation. When the tow truck left the scene at about 10:00PM that night, several vehicles followed it eastbound on Newhall Ranch Road.

At one point the driver of the tow truck stopped at the red light E/B Newhall Ranch Road at McBean Parkway. A witness saw a male exit a vehicle that was following the tow truck. The male grabbed a piece of the wrecked Porsche off the tow truck bed. The male drove away with the stolen vehicle part. The tow truck driver reported the theft to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s detectives assigned to the theft case were able to identify a suspect. A search warrant was obtained and a suspect was taken into custody as he was leaving his residence located in Tujunga, Los Angeles County. 18-year old Suspect Jameson Witty was arrested at his residence.

A stolen vehicle part was later recovered by sheriff’s detectives serving a search warrant at a residence in Canyon Country, Los Angeles County. The car part was a red, T-top roof panel to the wrecked 2005 Porsche Carrera GT.

A second suspect in this theft has been identified. The 25-year old suspect is outside the state of California and is in communication with sheriff’s detectives making arrangements to surrender himself.

Suspect Jameson Witty was booked at Santa Clarita Valley Station with bail set at $20,000.00

Sheriff’s detectives will meet with the Office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s for consideration of filing criminal charges of felony Grand Theft and Tampering with Evidence against both suspects.

The investigation of the traffic collision is ongoing. This includes examination of the wrecked vehicle for any further evidence that could help investigators to determine the cause of the collision.
