Lancaster, CA – 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.

Help Keep Siblings Together
Children's Bureau Info Meetings Teach Interested Families about Foster-Adoption

Palmdale, CA - Foster care and foster-adoption are meaningful ways for individuals and couples to fulfill their dream of parenting. Children’s Bureau offers a comprehensive foster care and adoption program that brings families together for a lifetime. The agency is in need of resource families for children in foster care while reunifying with birth families or to provide legal permanency by adoption.

In Los Angeles County alone, the foster care population exceeds 21,000 children with 200 of those foster children waiting for an adoptive family. Many of these children are siblings in need of families who are willing and able to keep them together. In fact, Children's Bureau turns away at least 10 sibling sets weekly due to lack of families.
"Children's Bureau focuses on keeping siblings together whenever possible," said Amy Heilman, Children’s Bureau's Director of Foster Care and Adoption. "The sibling relationship is a strong and important long-term bond in the life of a child. We see that children adjust better and find more success in life when they join a family with their siblings. It takes away that worry about the safety of their brother or sister. The child can then focus on adjusting to the family they have joined and their new environment."

So You Want to Be an Author?
Learn How to Get Published at Palmdale Playhouse

PALMDALE -- The Palmdale Playhouse, located at 38334 10th St. East in Palmdale, will host a “Publishing Primer: An Educational Presentation for Aspiring Authors,” presented by WordWise Media Services on Saturday, Feb. 1 from 1 to 5 pm. Admission is $5.

Attendees will learn from experienced professionals with years of literary experience both as writers and as agents. Topics to be discussed include the publishing market, self-publishing, copyright, networking, writers conferences, publishing contracts, the role of literary agents, and more.

“Today’s publishing environment offers new and unprecedented opportunity for new writers to make their mark, but where do you start?” asked Steve Hutson, owner of WordWise Media. “New business models and whiz-bang technologies make it easier than ever to get a book out there. But here’s the other half of the equation that no one talks about: As we crank out more and more new titles each year, the pool of retail buyers remains unchanged. The market is more competitive than ever, and far too many new authors rush in without educating themselves.”

Cities of Lancaster and Palmdale Ranked in Top 20 of Millennial Home Ownership
PALMDALE – The cities of Lancaster and Palmdale are ranked among the top 20 cities for millennial homeownership, according to a report released by SmartAsset.

Palmdale, which tied with Sioux Falls, SD for #4, and Lancaster at #16 stand out for their millennial homeownership rate in 2018 and 10-year uptick in under-35 homeownership.

“It makes sense that millennials would choose to buy a home in the Antelope Valley,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “With solid job growth headed by our aerospace partners, affordable housing, outstanding amenities, and proximity to popular places such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, and Mammoth, living in the Antelope Valley makes both economic and lifestyle sense for millennials who are looking for homes.”

“It is an honor to see the Antelope Valley ranked highly as part of this study,” said Mayor R. Rex Parris. “With additions such as the revitalization of The BLVD, attraction of microbreweries and wine bars, and amazing community events such as the Field of Drafts Beer Festival and concert series at the Palmdale Amphitheater, both cities have worked diligently to empower our valley to become one that millennials want to call home. This study affirms that our dedication to improving our region is having a profound positive impact on our millennial residents – especially those who dream of owning their own home.”
