Anyone who lives in Central California knows that to get from north to south, you take State Route 99 (SR99), or as most of us call it, Highway 99. If you are heading north to Sacramento or south to Bakersfield, or any of the cities in between, you are going to get there via SR99.

Whether you’re a history buff or you just enjoy exploring pieces of our past, visiting a local museum is an educational and interesting experience. One such museum, the Tulare Historical Museum, is the perfect place to learn more about Tulare, a small town located in the heart of the Central Valley, which holds a special place in our valley’s history.

The Blossom Trail just had its kick off event in Sanger this past weekend. It is hard to believe that it is that time of year again but blossoms are popping up all over Fresno County. There are many more events planned, but one of the big ones is the Annual Blossom Festival held in Sanger, which will be taking place on March 3. We took a moment to chat with President and Chief Executive Officer of the Sanger District Chamber of Commerce, Tammy Wolfe, about the festival itself and this year’s festivities.

A few months ago I was in Downtown Fresno for jury duty and found myself looking for somewhere to get some coffee. I noticed this cute little cafe very close to the court and decided to check it out. It was called Kids Café 2019. I looked around and noticed that this was more than just a cafe, so when I got home I set out to learn exactly what Kids Café 2019 was.

It was the summer of 1964. My family was on our annual pilgrimage back to Texas and Oklahoma. This year, though, instead of heading to Texas first, we stopped in Tulsa to give Grandma’s yard a major trim and clean-up, and get the house ready for the coming winter.

I have been a feminist for as long as I can remember. When pastors at church would talk about a wife obeying her husband or the man being the head of household, I never understood why. What makes a man better than a woman? I never bought into the sexist ideals society pushed. So, it was no surprise to anyone that I would want to participate in the Women’s March in Fresno this year.

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.
