Usually, when you think of the most popular hot spots in which to catch some waves, places like Hawaii, anywhere in Southern California, or the Bay Area are just a few that spring to mind. Now you can add another destination to that mix. That location is…Lemoore?

Good grief! You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown the musical comes to the Temple Theatre in Hanford. The iconic Peanuts Gang comes to life on the stage. There’s the self-deprecating Charlie Brown, the lovable oaf, the scene-stealer Lucy with her bossy ways which never impress piano prodigy Schroder, cute little Sally who is in love with security blanket-toting, philosophical Linus, and the master of joy, everybody’s favorite beagle, Snoopy. The gang’s all here.

In my experience, it is akin to going from albums to 8-track, from cassettes to CDs, and now downloading your favorite tunes to your iPod. Don’t get me started on radios to record players to tape decks to…I still have my Walkman! And, for visual entertainment we may be seeing television networks as obsolete and online streaming the way of the future.

I love Halloween and this Valley knows how to do it up right! There are Halloween events all over-some for kids and some for adults-some free and some cost. Some of them are even fundraisers for a good cause. This week we are featuring another Halloween event that is also a fundraiser for Valley Children’s Hospital/Healthcare-a Halloween Bash. The event is being put on by La Visionaria Guild, so we chatted with Dallas Selling, who is the Vice President of the organization and a founding member.

If you have ever seen MacBeth on stage, I guarantee you that haven’t seen a production like the one currently on stage at the College of the Sequoias in Visalia. This is a multimedia production unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

When George Mc Arthur was a little boy, he went to the Kern County Fair and saw a sideshow in the carnival: the fire-eater, the sword swallower, and other acts. “I was fascinated,” he says, “by what the human body can do.” He has always remembered that day.
