Every Tuesday at twelve forty-five, the Reedley High Students for Peace Club volunteers their lunch time to better understand the problems of the world and figure out how they can do their part to help. The students, ranging from freshmen to seniors, come from all backgrounds, each carrying differing opinions and views. But all this is left at the door as each student shares the same dream of curing the injustices of the world, one step at a time.

From the capital campaign to the building of the new elementary, the school year holds much promise. One addition in particular was the introduction of water polo to the athletics program.

There’s not a lot to say, beyond the obvious, about Reedley College’s 58-7 loss to Fresno City College this past Saturday night at Radcliffe Stadium.
The Tigers were dominated in every aspect of the game; from defense and offense, to placekicking and punting. The numbers are ugly, so there’s no need to repeat them. The Tigers lost to a superior opponent.

A loss is a loss, and no one likes to lose, but after Reedley College lost last Saturday night to Hartnell College in Salinas, there is optimism that this season may turn out okay after all.

St. John the Baptist De La Salle was born into a wealthy and noble family in Rheims, France. By age 16 he was named a canon of Rheims Cathedral and was ordained into priesthood by age 26. La Salle gave up a promising, and possibly brilliant, ecclesiastical career to take up a life filled with poverty, persecution, and contempt. He also became the educational genius of the seventeenth century and the founder of modern methods of teaching.

There’s a word that describes what will be needed from the fans at Reedley College football games this season, and that word is “patience.”

Reedley College recently announced that they had hired Eric Marty as their new head football coach. KRL has had a close connection with football at Reedley College since our beginning, so we were excited to interview Eric.

My friend Bruce was back from Vietnam and I was out of AIT, so we decided to go back to college. When we enrolled at Reedley College, we found that we both needed to take English A, and there was a new English teacher on staff. A little background here: English A is basic English for those with aspirations of transferring from junior college to a four-year college.

On Saturday, April 2, I made my much anticipated return to the world of percussion. I rolled the window down and was greeted by that crazy cacophony as competitors filled the Clovis East High School parking lot, preparing to strut their stuff in the San Joaquin Valley Color Guard & Percussion Review Championship Finals. This was going to be a big deal and ‘the heat was on.’

The 2015-2016 school year at Immanuel has been one of growth and development. The High school, Junior high, and Elementary school have all expanded in technology use, watched the building of a new sports complex, and welcomed new faculty. One new staff member in particular, is the new Junior High and Elementary Performing Arts Director, Jordan Laemmlen. An Immanuel alumnus of 2011, Laemmlen graduated from Vanguard University in 2015 with a bachelor’s in Theater Arts, and a music minor.

Teachers touch our lives in many ways–they inspire us, lead us toward a career we may never have considered, and help us learn to be good citizens of the world. However, seldom do they get the credit and recognition that they deserve. So here at KRL, we like to feature some of those amazing teachers.

“Roll your window down.” This instruction came from my friend, Jill Bedford, as we approached Clovis East High School. We were here, along with Jill’s daughter, Sarah Potter, to attend the San Joaquin Valley Color Guard & Percussion Review Classification Show. After spending most of 2015 attending parades, it was time to up my game. Since I’m crazy about marching bands, particularly drumlines, this seemed like the next logical step. What I stepped into was a different world.

The ensemble for Oz comprises of the chamber choir, concert choir, men’s and women’s choir, and elementary and junior high choirs.

Whenever you enter Reedley, from whatever direction, there are a multitude of landmarks reminding you that this is your hometown. Over the next few months, I’m going to be writing about at least three local landmarks. Some of them have the (dubious) honor of appearing about the same time I came to Reedley, but more about those later. I’m going to start with Immanuel Schools.
