(Visalia Times-Delta) Because Exeter student Aden Yenne lives in rural Tulare County, his internet access is limited.

His lack of connection makes it hard to complete homework. Sometimes, he is left to finish his homework on campus, he said.

But now, he and the more than 500 children who attend the Boys & Girls Club of Exeter year-round will have internet access after school.

California Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield), along with internet provider Frontier Communications, welcomed Boys & Girls Club members Friday to the club's new computer lab, now equipped with 12 computers.
