Before going to bed, I spent a long time in prayer, knowing I’d need all the strength and wisdom I could get for the next day.

After a restless night, I awoke Sunday morning feeling like I had a plane full of luggage under my eyes. I showered and got dressed for church, then peddled on over.

Welcome to a brand new feature here at Kings River Life! I am a fan of 1950s sci-fi movies. A big fan. I guess it’s a hereditary thing. My late father was a fan of the same movies, so I got an early start. Thanks to DVD, I can now watch almost every sci-fi movie from the fifties, and they’re as much fun now as they were back then — maybe more so!

The Reedley College Football team’s post-season banquet was held on November 23rd. I wasn’t much looking forward to it, to be honest. I mean, what was there really to celebrate about a team with a 3-7 record, including a season-ending four-game losing streak? Shows you what I know. The banquet was one of the most uplifting and inspiring experiences of my 54 years on this earth, all because of one person: Jesse Lownsbury.

Chief Harmon didn’t waste any time in taking down Chuck’s statement after we arrived. He wasn’t sure what could be done with the information, but he could at least use it to start building some sort of case. I suggested he call Paul Unruh to see if he could help them figure out how they could get a group together to sue the Club leaders for discrimination if nothing else.

Reedley brother and sister duo, The Autumn Lo, have just released their debut CD, a Christmas CD called Fa La La La… The duo is made up of Nick and Kara McIntyre and the Christmas music on this CD is a bit different from the typical pop or country singer Christmas recordings that abound.

No matter what age you are, it is safe to say that you have heard a song written by Taylor Swift. Through the release of her three albums, the world has been part of Taylor Swift’s growing from a timid 16-year-old who wrote about her admiration of Tim McGraw, into a 20-year-old writing songs about battling the challenges most young adults have.

If you’re looking for an interesting, yet far-fetched movie to watch, Skyline might be the one for you. I’ve never been one for science fiction, and this movie did nothing to change my feelings about that. However, if you like Sci-Fi this may be for you.
