Valentine’s Day is almost here, and there are a lot of wonderful local places where you can shop for that special Valentine’s Day gift. We chatted with some of the local shops to see what they had to offer. Some of the items needed to be ordered way ahead of time so for those make a note for next year, but there are many other wonderful things you still have time to go purchase for that special Valentine!

It is Blossom Trail time once again-a time filled with events that center around the beautiful blossoms that cover our fruit trees in this area. We sat down to chat with Tammy Wolfe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Sanger District Chamber of Commerce, about one of those events, the Blossom Trail Bus Tour put on by the Sanger Chamber of Commerce.

Every year KRL looks to see if there is a Christmas event that perhaps we have never covered before, and this year we discovered Christmas on the Farm in Kingsburg. We took some time to chat with owner Brad Kane, who owns the almond farm with his wife Lori.

Drive into downtown Kingsburg on a rainy night and it’s dark…really dark. Hey, there’s a light over there, down the block from the library! What is it?
Fugazzi’s.

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.

Early this year Bullfrogs Bar and Grill in Kingsburg was featured in the Great Food Search, where the focus was on their awesome food. This week we are focusing on them as an entertainment venue. We took some time to chat with Justin Simmons, one half of the core management staff. He shares the responsibilities of a general manager with Kourtney Vigario. They took on these roles in September of 2015 when their current GM left to pursue his own business.

If you have the opportunity to go to Bullfrogs Bar & Grill at Riverland near Kingsburg…jump at the chance! Hop to it. Do it before you croak.
Hidden on the south bank of the Kings River, within leaping distance of Highway 99, this Mid-Century Modern restaurant/bar/entertainment center turns out some unbelievable food. Chef Julian puts his style into everything he serves.

Of all the days I’ve spent watching parades this year, December 5 was the most challenging – it was a Christmas parade double-header! That’s right, I attended two very different parades in one day and lived to tell you all about it.

If you love horror and vampires, this is the book for you, however, it has a several different twists than most books featuring vampires.
Infernal has the addition of a major player ? the devil. Yes, the entity sometimes called Satan. He cavorts around as a well-dressed, cigar smoking human. He taunts a priest, and directs the vampires. The vampires attack a monastery and invade the Central Valley, concentrating on Clovis and Kingsburg.
