“I wonder what kind of presents will be under the tree this Christmas!” As a little boy, this was a question that energized me during this season as the big day approached. There were many things I enjoyed about Christmas, including the story of the Baby whose birthday was to be remembered on that day, but I have to admit the thing that excited me most about the holiday when I was a child was the prospect of receiving presents.

The Declaration of Independence states that we have all been endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, “that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The right to pursue happiness is one that Americans have passionately claimed, and as a result we have a society that puts a great deal of emphasis on entertainment, personal fulfillment and any number of other avenues that are meant to carry us toward this illusive goal.

I’ve been covering sports in the Valley for twenty-five years, and one of the things I’ve learned is that every successful sports program has people working behind the scenes who have as much impact on the team’s success as the star athletes.

I had a funny dream last night in which the pastor of Redeemer’s Church in Reedley and I were making a movie together. It featured some guy with a backpack that had mushrooms and a hamburger in it. Were this dream to be analyzed by a psychologist, I have no idea what he would learn about me.

When I was a kid, I remember watching a cartoon called Yogi’s Ark Lark. In this series, Yogi Bear traveled around in an ark with a group of other cartoon characters looking for “the perfect place.” The theme song talked about how they were on their way to a perfect place where the skies were blue, the fields were green, the water sparkled and the air was clean.

by Claire Lang



One of the most important tools I can think of when it comes to changing ones entire nutritional lifestyle is changing how one looks at food. I, like so many others, have always thought of food in the terms of hungry, full, or not hungry. Basically, food was only viewed as something to fill me.

This month I would like to take a different approach and present some ideas from a more ‘green’ perspective.
