For years now, the Reedley High Boys Golf Team has brought pride back to the Pirates. And this year, when the golf courses are greener than ever, they look to do it again.
Every year since 2011, Reedley High has been the league champion in golf, except for the heart break in 2014 when Hoover claimed the title.

Teachers have a tremendous influence on the lives of our children, and yet they so seldom get the recognition that they deserve. Now and then here at KRL, we like to focus the spotlight on one of those many teachers–this time it is on Reedley High School English teacher Jennifer Moore.

I immigrated to this great country in 1974, from Guadeloupe, French Caribbean, as a seven-year old on the tailwind of my Syrian-born father’s dream of a better life for his wife and eleven children. My father was French by a twist of fate because Syria was under French Mandate.

Spring is my favorite time of year to ride my bike in the Central Valley. The weather is ideal and the views are amazing. Riding in the recent Blossom Bike Ride out of Reedley, I was mesmerized by all the blossoms, wildflowers, green hills, snowcapped mountains, and flowing rivers, creeks and streams. Being outside and able to soak in all that gorgeousness from my bike is as good as it gets for me!

Salt. It is one thing that all of us have in common ? we need it to survive. In pretty close to every kitchen in America, there is a salt shaker sitting on the table or next to the stove. And, I am willing to bet, that many of those shakers have been filled by a blue box with a little girl carrying an umbrella on the label.

Just a few months ago, football season was electrifying the air at Sal Gonzalez field. People noticed the cheering crowd, the enthusiastic cheerleaders, and, of course, the players on the field. But what people may have not noticed is that mixed in among the players, coaches, water boys, and refs on the sidelines, there was a team of kids not at all focused on the score. This was the Sports Medicine Team, binding, wrapping, and tending to the wounds of the players who were injured during the game. Reedley High’s football season ended months ago, but that doesn’t mean the Sports Medicine team isn’t still hard at work.

Spring has nearly sprung and with the coming of spring comes the panoramic beauty known throughout the region and beyond as The Fresno County Blossom Trail. Originally created twenty-nine years ago to celebrate the splendor of the sights and scents of the showy blossoms of the Valley’s almond, plum, nectarine, peach, apricot, apple, and citrus blooms; these trees provide nature’s beauty at its finest. Add to that, the magnificence of the snow-capped Sierras for the backdrop, and you will have a sensory experience of beauty unlike any other.

I remember a time when yoga, meditation, whole grains, vitamins and herbal supplements were considered weird and hippie-trippy. Well, times have definitely changed.

If your goal for 2017 is to improve or maintain your well-being, be it physical or mental, my friends at Tower Health and Diet Foods can answer your questions or offer guidance regarding your choices.

I have had the pleasure of having Mr. Josh Justin as a teacher for both Biology and Chemistry. I took Chemistry a year ago with a different teacher, and was not able to comprehend the material which led to me having to repeat the class. Mr. Justin was always willing to put in extra work with me on things I didn’t understand, and he helped me excel in every area of Chemistry.
