When we think of aprons the image we usually get in our minds is of a mom or grandma wearing one while they cook something up for the family–maybe that’s old fashioned but I think for most of us that’s still the first image that comes to mind. So it seemed appropriate to talk about aprons on Mother’s Day weekend! At the end of this article is a coupon for Valentino’s Italian Restaurant in Reedley-so print it out and take mom for a great Italian meal this week!

by Penny Warner



I haven’t been camping in over twenty years. I have pictures of the kids, filthy from head to toe, as proof that I did go camping at least once. But the experience was so traumatic—all that dirt and those bugs and stuff—I swore the next time I went camping it would be at the Marriott—and I’d live without room service.

Can openers have been a kitchen mainstay for over 150 years, but believe it or not, the first can opener was invented nearly 50 years AFTER the birth of the metal can! In 1813, Peter Durand was able to figure out how to seal food into cans, but never thought once about how to get the food out.

andEducation
SECTIONS

by Sean Stephens



Oh no! Your computer is running so slow! But where can you take it? There’s a Geek Squad in Fresno, and another in Visalia, but they are too far away, so do you just live with the slow? Many people do. The fact is, many people are more put off by the miles than by the thought of being without their computer for a few days.

What is the kitchen utensil that does basically one job and does it so well that no one has ever made changes to its basic design? It’s that odd utensil inherited from a grandmother that the unenlightened lets sit in the back of the utensil drawer. I’m talking about the humble potato masher.

This Valley is filled with more than its share of talented performers. Here at KRL we would like to spotlight some of these actors, directors, writers, singers, etc and give them a moment to be recognized for their abilities and successes. We would also like to let our readers know about some wonderful talent in their own backyards that they have the chance to enjoy.

by Sheryl Wall



I have loved dogs ever since I was a little girl, and find that they can often cheer me up when I am sad. My dogs are so full of love that I decided I wanted them to be able to share that love with others as well. This is what planted the idea of Dog Therapy work in my head.
