JETHAWKS DEFEATED IN MODESTO
Nuts score 13-unanswered after ‘Hawks first-inning run

MODESTO, Calif. – The JetHawks scored first, but the Modesto Nuts scored often to take the series-opener, 13-1, on Friday night at John Thurman Field.

The loss was the ninth for the JetHawks in their last 13 games and dropped them to .500 on the season (27-27, 61-61) for the first time since they were 34-34 at the All-Star break.

Taylor Snyder stroked a RBI-single in the first inning to put the JetHawks ahead, 1-0, but they were unable to take advantage of a number of opportunities to add their total against Nuts starter Ian McKinney (12-5).

Lancaster had runners at first and third with nobody out in the second but didn’t score. They had the bases loaded in the fourth inning with one out and again failed to cross the plate.

The Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation Launches #CountMeIn
2020 Census Project Aims to Increase Count in Low Response Neighborhoods

The Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation (LMPAF) recently launched its latest program, #CountMeIn, designed to increase the participation of Lancaster residents in the upcoming Census. #CountMeIn is a collaborative, community engagement project led by Artist-in-Residence, Robin Rosenthal, along with photographers, Jane Szabo and Edwin Vasquez. Through a series of workshops, community gatherings, candid photography, and a public exhibition, the artists will work with Lancaster residents to increase the self-enumerated responses of identified Low Response Score (LRS) neighborhoods in the 2020 Census.

Every ten years, the U.S. Census counts every resident in the nation. The data collected determines the number of seats held by each state in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to communities across the nation. Historically, the neighborhoods immediately surrounding the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) have had high LRS. Neighborhoods with elevated LRS typically go undercounted and thus remain underrepresented and underfunded.

For the first time in 2020, the census will be conducted primarily through online self-responses instead of hard copy mailing efforts. This change has the potential to drastically impact state and county funding even further. Many critical factors can be barriers to participation in the census, including education, race, spoken language, poverty level, homelessness, immigration status, and level of trust. #CountMeIn seeks to reach those in low reporting neighborhood block groups by building trust through hands-on workshops, artist interactions, and creative place-making projects.

STORM START TOO STRONG FOR JETHAWKS

LANCASTER, Calif. – A six-run first inning for Lake Elsinore was too much for the JetHawks Thursday, as Lancaster fell to the Storm, 13-8, at The Hangar. The JetHawks got within two runs, but were unable to chase down the Storm.

Lake Elsinore (28-25, 63-58) picked up where they left off after a historic comeback Wednesday night. They scored six runs on seven hits against Colten Schmidt (1-4) in the opening inning Thursday. They had scored the last 17 runs in the series heading into the bottom of the first inning.

The JetHawks (27-26, 61-60) showed some fight, scoring four times in their half of the first inning. Lancaster would get no closer than two runs in the game.

Taylor Snyder continued his hot Second Half, smashing a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth. The infielder has hit 12 of his 16 home runs after the All-Star Break.

City of Lancaster Weekly Road Closures through August 25, 2019
In an effort to improve our neighborhoods and city streets, the City of Lancaster conducts a variety of road construction projects which will ultimately benefit our citizens. While these construction zones typically restrict traffic flow for an interim period, the results provide smoother roads and better infrastructure in various locations throughout Lancaster. Additionally, a number of community events take place year-round throughout the City, resulting in temporary traffic detours during event setup, activity, and breakdown. The City of Lancaster strives to provide as many opportunities as possible for community gathering and engagement.

The BLVD Market is an opportunity for the community to gather and enjoy an offering of fresh produce and unique items in an open market atmosphere. The Market’s spring and summer hours are 4 – 9 p.m., every Thursday on Lancaster Blvd., between Ehrlich Avenue and Fern Avenue. This area will be closed to traffic and parking from 1 – 11 p.m. on Market days.
