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.

Combining prior experience in the insurance industry with a dependable and ethical way of conducting business, Carole Massey took on a failing commercial trucking insurance brokerage company and created Massey Insurance in 1980. Despite the insurance industry’s competitive nature, Carole adhered to honest business practices and attracted a range of drivers who’ve since become loyal and repeat customers. During that time, Carole was a pioneer in the industry as one of only two women in California whose agency specialized in truck insurance. Carole understood the intricacies of the insurance process and strove to offer affordable coverage during the market’s constant changes. Carole’s daughter Gini began working for Massey Insurance in 1988. Starting from the ground up, Gini learned the family business and helped uphold the agency’s primary objectives. In 2008, Gini officially became Massey Insurance’s company owner. She continues the tradition of searching the best insurance companies and programs for truckers and small fleets—finding the right policy for the client at the most competitive price.
