David’s is a jewel of a little store, located right in the heart of Reedley. From the moment you walk in the door, you are in sensory overload—but in a very, very good way. Everywhere you look, there are wonders to behold, and Christmas is the best time of all!

Craig Scharton has no pet peeves except one. It is the furry kind, the kind that kicks and barks and wags his tail with delight. His pet dog, Peeve has something to howl about these days.

My most resent stroll around Fresno was while doing something else, but then that is the business of strolling! It is also what one does downtown.

This February something new and exciting moved into the spot on 10th Street in downtown Reedley that used to be the home of Domino’s Pizza. Something not only healthier, but unique!

Thoughts on the Reedley Fiesta

IN THE October 1 ISSUE

by Jim Bulls



I would like to think that Art Tabler would have thrown Reedley’s first Fiesta in my honor since I moved to Reedley and he came up with the Fiesta idea the same year: 1947. He did feel our tight-knit little community had reason to celebrate, but because our diverse ethnic population had given their lives and support to protecting our country during World War II and local young men who had fought in Europe, North Africa, and Asia were just beginning to return home, also the local farmers who grew crops for the war effort had completed harvest – what better time for a community celebration?

When one thinks of the kind of Chief of Police their town should have, characteristics such as competence, trust, dedication and honor come to mind. In Kingsburg, some may be surprised to realize that we are represented by those traits and more.

No one is quite sure of the origin and no one owns the word, but a “hashtag” is hash mark (#) followed by a word used as a type of bookmark in social media, most notably Twitter. It facilitates cross pollination and collaboration of ideas by creating groupings and words. It creates space in cyberspace where ideas can grow. It is a new word in a world of new words, concepts, and constant change.

It started with a couple of farmers and the fruit of their harvest, searching for opportunities to sell fresh produce to Sanger ‘locals.’ Thirteen years later, Sanger has reaped the harvest of much, much more.
Welcome to the 14th annual Sanger Farmers’ Market and Street Faire.
