The first time I went inside the Reedley Museum was with my daughter’s class in elementary school many years ago. When I worked for the Reedley Exponent I was there often as they are a fountain of information about Reedley’s interesting past. Recently I sat down for a chat with their current Curator, Karey Olson, to touch base with all they have to offer. Karey has been a volunteer with the museum for six year.

We are doing a series of articles that is taking a look at many different parts of the City of Reedley and leaders in Reedley, to learn not only more about what they do, but also about who they are. This week we are chatting with Reedley’s Chief of Police Jose Luis Garza. He assumed leadership of the Reedley Police Department on March 13, 2012, after serving as Acting Chief of Police since April of 2011.

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and there are a lot of wonderful local places where you can shop for that special Valentine’s Day gift. We chatted with some of the local shops to see what they had to offer. Some of the items needed to be ordered way ahead of time so for those make a note for next year, but there are many other wonderful things you still have time to go purchase for that special Valentine!

When the High School Musical movie came out in 2006 on the Disney Channel my 13-year-old daughter was obsessed with it, and I enjoyed it too! We even eventually talked her brother into watching it. Through the years we watched all three movies many times, and even now she and I are big fans of Zach Efron and Lucas Grabeel, two of the stars of the movies. So when we heard that the Selma Arts Center’s Teen theatre group was doing a production of the stage version, well of course we were going to be there.

Every year KRL looks to see if there is a Christmas event that perhaps we have never covered before, and this year we discovered Christmas on the Farm in Kingsburg. We took some time to chat with owner Brad Kane, who owns the almond farm with his wife Lori.
