County Supervisor Lovingood:
Race Communications has been awarded a $9 million grant to complete the Gigafy Phelan Project and expand fiber deployment to unserved areas of the community.
“This is outstanding news that will bring high-speed internet service to thousands of homes in the Phelan area,” Supervisor Lovingood said.
In 2017, the California Public Utilities Commission approved Race Communications’ grant application to expand Internet service in the Phelan area; but unexpected cost increases prevented coverage in some areas. In addition to the supplemental grant, Race has put in their own matching investment funds. Once complete, the project will extend gigabit-capable high-speed internet service to an estimated 7,606 households in the communities of Phelan, Pinon Hills, Oak Hills, and parts of Hesperia.

Median household income adjusted for inflation was around $25,000 per year during the 1950s. It's nearly double that amount today. We have nostalgia about the prosperity of the 1950s because our definition of what counts as "middle class" has been inflated -- including the 34% rise in the size of the median American home in just the past 25 years. If you dig into how the average "prosperous" American family lived in the 1950s, you'll find a standard of living we'd call "poverty" today.

During times of war, thousands of young men and women across this country left high school and the comforts of home to serve gallantly in the armed forces. Their sacrifices ensured our freedom and shaped the course of history throughout the world. After the wars ended, many of these veterans were not able to finish high school for various reasons, but led productive lives and helped build our communities.
The Operation Recognition Veterans Diploma Project, offered in partnership between the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools and the county's Department of Veterans Affairs, recognizes veterans from World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam War. This event is for veterans or family members of those who are deceased for awarding their high school diploma to those who met the qualifications.
The California Education Code authorizes the granting of retroactive high school diplomas to eligible veterans, as well as those who were interned by federal order during World War II.
All applicants for the Operation Recognition Veterans Diploma Project must have been enrolled in high school prior to their military service or internment in a World War II relocation camp. It is an honor to bestow diplomas to these deserving veterans. Our deepest appreciation goes to all those recognized for your sacrifice and valor. This is a small gesture of our society's gratitude for the sacrifices made in the name of freedom.
