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.

Apple Valley, CA. The Happy Trails Children's Foundation is pleased to carry on the work with abused children who were so important to Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. Child abuse is a very serious problem that is growing in epidemic proportions. It is heartbreaking to hear the case histories of children who have been the victims of severe mental and physical abuse, beatings, sexual abuse, kidnappings, neglect, abandonment, and death. An astounding number of almost one in ten children nationwide is a victim of severe child abuse in one form or another. The number of major cases appears to be increasing at an alarming rate. There is an urgent need for the services provided by the Cooper Home, a project of the Happy Trails Children's Foundation. The foundation in partnership with Trinity Youth Services operates two cottages with a total of 44 beds for boys between the ages of 10 and 16. These boys are victims of child abuse who have been removed from their homes throughout Southern California by child protective services and sent to us by the courts for residential care and treatment services. The boys are here on average about 12 to 18 months, going through an intensive program of group and individual therapy. They have a prescribed program with goals that must be met along the way. The Happy Trails Children's Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt charitable organization under the Internal Revenue Code, Section 501 (c)(3), run by a volunteer Board of Directors and a paid and volunteer staff. All donations are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
