The Reedley High School Students for Peace Club is much more than your average club on campus. This is a group of young and bright individuals with an array of interests, from all grade levels, who share one common goal: how can peace be achieved?

This week we are interviewing Valley historian and author Stephen H. Provost. Last year he released his book Highway 99. The book is filled with historic photographs and forgotten tales. Highway 99 is a nostalgia-fueled road trip into California motoring culture. Details at the end of this post on how to enter to win a copy of Highway 99, and a link to purchase it from Amazon.

Inspire peace and unity by participating in National Hugging Day, January 21. The Los Angeles location wants to set a new Guiness Book World Record but if you can’t make it to LA, plan your own hugging party.

It’s that time of year again: hot chocolate, the bright shiny lights, spending time with our loved ones and friends, and of course, the spirit of shopping. With our hustle and bustle lifestyles, we need a one-stop shop for our loved ones.

When the Reedley Police Department’s K9 officer Baxter passed away in January of 2013 due to a terminal illness, it spurred the beginnings of an even larger K9 unit in Reedley, thanks to the great response of the community.

Decorating the Christmas tree is a walk down memory lane for me. Each ornament that is unwrapped has a special story. Included in this collected are “ornaments” that have been made with bits and pieces of Christmas. It was looking at these that started me thinking about popcorn.

It’s Christmastime, and all over the Central San Joaquin Valley the season is being celebrated with parades. What could be easier? You just get a bunch of people, a few floats, and a marching band or two, and you’re good to go, right? Wrong! Behind every conglomeration of sights and sounds there are hours, days, weeks, and months of preparation and organization.

Earlier this year I learned about a program at Reedley College called NextUp-it is a program that helps support foster youth at community colleges. So I took some time to chat with Aaren Cobb, Ed.D, NextUp Counselor/Coordinator at Reedley College, to learn more about what this program does.

As caroling, hot chocolate, and cold weather begin to emerge, we begin to look forward to holiday joy that is soon to come. Recognizing the hard work students have put in, especially through music during this spirited season, it is exciting to see the RHS Choir program working hard to bring spectacular performances to their audiences.

Since I was born just after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, my first exposure to “gear-head-itis” was to the cars of the 1930s. At that time, all the car makers were vying for what few dollars there were available for new cars. During the Great Depression, many of America’s finest auto makers would perish from bankruptcy.

Twelfth Night On Stage at Fresno Pacific

Twelfth Night is one of my favorite plays by William Shakespeare. It is a comedy that is believed to have been written around 1601-02 as a Twelfth Night’s entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. So it seems appropriate that it be the fall play presented by Fresno Pacific Theater.
