As Christmas gets closer, the Reedley High Madrigals are hard at work preparing to spread Christmas cheer.

The group is led by Randy Lepp, a talented musician himself. He can always be seen early morning on campus running around with a determined look on his face.

Into The Woods is a musical mashup of four timeless fairy tales: Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood. The story of The Baker and His Wife was also created to tie all these fairytales together. James Lapine, the author, and Stephen Sondheim, the composer of this masterpiece, took classic stories and combined aspects of them turning it into a suspenseful play that is known for its turn of events and excitable storyline.

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.

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.

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.’
