Multi-Agency Press Conference slated for June 26 at Fire Station 126 aims to encourage 4th of July safety and zero tolerance of illegal fireworks in Santa Clarita.

Santa Clarita, Calif. – Fourth of July is a time for celebration, but the City of Santa Clarita, County of Los Angeles and public safety officials are urging residents to engage in festivities responsibly and refrain from the use of illegal fireworks. To educate residents about the dangers of fireworks, the Santa Clarita City Council along with Los Angeles County Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station Captain Robert Lewis and the Grossman Burn Center will be hosting a multi-agency fireworks safety press conference onWednesday, June 26, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at Los Angeles County Fire Station 126, located at 26320 Citrus Street.

            “The fact that we have so many agencies coming together to prevent illegal fireworks is a testament to how serious we are about our zero-tolerance stance on illegal fireworks in the City,” says City of Santa Clarita Mayor Marsha McLean. “The recent fires we’ve had in town should be a reminder of the potential for damaging fires in Santa Clarita. With all of the dry brush covering our hillsides – now is not the time to play with illegal fireworks; they pose an immense threat to our community,” adds Mayor McLean.

According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, every year fireworks cause thousands of injuries and start more than 1,600 fires. Fireworks can cause burns, loss of limbs and even death.

“Using illegal fireworks is not worth the safety or financial risk,” Supervisor Barger said. “It’s our job as responsible community members to do our part to help prevent fires, injuries, and liabilities. This Fourth of July, please leave the fireworks shows to the professionals to keep our families and neighborhoods out of harm’s way.”

In the City of Santa Clarita, it is illegal to possess, sell or use fireworks including those that are labeled “Safe and Sane,” such as sparklers, snaps, smoke balls and any item that explodes.

“Our deputies will cite anyone they see setting off fireworks and they will confiscate all illegal fireworks,” said Captain Robert Lewis. “We know fireworks are part of the festivities, but we urge everyone to leave them to the professionals. Setting off any fireworks is against the law. Please show respect for your neighbors by upholding the law and help keep our community safe from accidental fires and/or injuries.” 

In Santa Clarita, fireworks are a violation of the Santa Clarita Municipal Code, Health and Safety Code and Los Angeles County Fire Code. The public is encouraged to report illegal fireworks anonymously by calling the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at (661) 255-1121. Please do not dial 9-1-1 to report illegal fireworks unless it is a life-threatening emergency.

“While you may enjoy the dazzling sights and sounds of fireworks, your next-door neighbor may be a veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder or simply someone who develops extreme anxiety from fireworks,” says Mayor Marsha McLean. “We also cannot forget about our pets. The day after the Fourth of July is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters due to the many frightened animals that run away from home.”  

To enjoy a spectacular fireworks show – everyone is encouraged to attend the City’s annual Fourth of July fireworks. As in years’ past, the show will take place at Westfield Valencia Town Center and start at 9:15 p.m.

Mary-Louise Parker returns to Broadway in ‘The Sound Inside’ Sept. 14 – November 30, 2019 at New York City Theatre’s Studio 54.

THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DRAMA COMES TO BROADWAY

New York, New York – Tony and Emmy winner Mary-Louise Parker returns to Broadway in the thrilling new show that’s been hailed as a New York Times Critic’s Pick and “a gripping stunner of a 90-minute play” (Chicago Tribune). Written by Pulitzer finalist Adam Rapp and directed by Tony winner David Cromer, The Sound Inside is truly riveting theatre about a brilliant Ivy League professor, a mysterious student and a troubling favor.

The Sound Inside follows Bella Baird, an accomplished professor at an Ivy League university who prizes her solitude. But when she faces a challenge she cannot tackle alone, she allies herself with a brilliant and mysterious student, Christopher.

No stranger to the bright lights of Times Square, Emmy and Golden Globe-winning stage and screen veteran Mary Louise Parker returns to the Great White Way for the eighth time – past Broadway highlights include a Tony Award-winning performance in 2001 drama Proof and a critically acclaimed turn in the 2016 production of Heisenberg. Parker reprises the role of accomplished Ivy League professor Bella Baird in Pulitzer Prize finalist Adam Rap’s stunning two hander The Sound Inside.

First garnering much critical acclaim during its world premiere run at the 2018 Williamstown Theatre Festival, the intriguing production now comes to New York’s Studio 54 in the fall of 2019. At the center of its dark story lie words and the great literary tradition, bringing together two very different characters as they each individually face their dark night of the soul. Parker was praised for a visceral performance, one that plumbs the depths of despair to deliver an exquisite and thought-provoking tragedy theater goers are not likely to soon forget. 

WHAT IS THE SOUND INSIDE ABOUT?

Parker’s Bella Baird is a 53-year old academic and fiction writer, as well as the play’s central narrator. She’s spent much of her life dedicated to pursuits other than love, marriage and motherhood, has a burgeoning book collection filled wit  first editions, doesn’t smoke and even cycles to work. When she receives a grim cancer diagnosis, she begins to write about the experience, telling the audience her tale as she documents it. One of her students, Christopher Dunn, also has a way with words, and the pair form an unlikely friendship in which fascination, admiration and ultimately sorrow collide.

Mayor McLean Works to Advance Mobility Priorities

Santa Clarita, Calif. – City of Santa Clarita Mayor Marsha McLean joined other elected officials from throughout the region at the June 13, 2019, San Fernando Valley Council of Governments (SFVCOG) Mobility Workshop. The workshop focused on advancing regional transportation priorities and looking toward the future, to lock in new SFVCOG Mobility Priorities for 2020 and beyond.

“As a board member of the San Fernando Valley Council of Governments (SFVCOG), I had the pleasure of representing Santa Clarita at this workshop,” said Mayor McLean. “I have been a long-time avid supporter of public transit, and as modes of transportation evolve, it is imperative that we continue to strongly advocate for enhanced transportation opportunities for Santa Clarita.”   

One of the main topics of discussion was increased Metrolink service to the Antelope Valley Line and initiating Metrolink’s Antelope Valley Line Study. In addition to making it easier for people to access Metrolink, emphasis was also placed on first and last mile connectivity. Workshop participants shared ideas for transportation options to get residents from the Metrolink stations to local job centers.

“We want to make it easy and efficient for the community to utilize public transportation for their daily commute or weekend adventures,” said Mayor McLean. “The City of Santa Clarita offers miles of protected bike trails and the Pace Bike Share program. This allows our residents and visitors to cycle from the Metrolink Station to their destination.”
