Signal Hill has long been a communications point on the Southern California landscape. In an earlier era, Native Americans signaled their brethren with fire and smoke, from Santa Catalina Island to the foothills of the Coastal Range bordering what is now L.A.
Today the signals are electronic, connecting us--at the click of a mouse--to vast, new worldwide networks.

Another Pleasant Encounter on Signal Hill
Lori & Lance are 11-year residents of Signal Hill, and neighbors from around the corner.
After peeking over the railing to the street below, "Richard, is that you?" "Lori?" ...It turns out we worked together 17 years ago, in Orange County.
We had a long conversation on our front deck, and learned of their four children, their home schooling, sailing adventures on the high seas, and discussed the possibility of forming a Signal Hill Beta Club to promote civic engagement by local teens. -- RCH
