    Now that the dust (pun intended) has settled, it’s a shame to see who is taking the credit for winning the good battle. It is also frustrating to still see some residents not appreciating what our city actually accomplished. They still don’t get the potential domino effect Cemex would have had on our quality of life.

    For most people in the Santa Clarita and Antelope valleys, Saturday was like most August days - hot, dry, uneventful. But for the communities of Acton and Agua Dulce, it was a day of joy and celebration … the culmination of more than a decade of work, support and hope that finally materialized in the official dedication of the new Vasquez High School campus. For me, a proud 2006 graduate of Vasquez High School and K-12 attendee of the Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District, this day was combination of nostalgia and the surreal experience of setting foot on something we never thought would happen.

    The bill would make it a federal offense, punishable by up to a year in prison or fines, to fly a commercial or private drone over an airport or active wildfire. The legislation is in direct response to several incidents in California where private drones observing wildfires forced firefighting agencies to postpone air response out of fear of collision.

    The city of Santa Clarita and indeed the whole of the Santa Clarita Valley have a reason to celebrate. I just wonder if some of the invoices from the fight the city had to fund can be sent to former Congressman Howard “Take-The-Buck” McKeon. He had all those years to resolve the problem, and now, less than a year after he was replaced by Steve Knight, Cemex is going away.
    Thank You, Buck (Not)
