Keeping a ball from touching the ground may seem like a difficult feat, but imagine doing this with a small, cone-shaped object weighing about five grams. The ladies of Reedley High School’s Badminton team master this feat using a thin, lightweight racquet, with months of diligent practice and relentless effort. This indoor sport may seem like a typical picnic activity, but the girls aren’t here just to play.

The first time I went inside the Reedley Museum was with my daughter’s class in elementary school many years ago. When I worked for the Reedley Exponent I was there often as they are a fountain of information about Reedley’s interesting past. Recently I sat down for a chat with their current Curator, Karey Olson, to touch base with all they have to offer. Karey has been a volunteer with the museum for six year.

My February started out with a gentleman from Fresno calling me about four newborn kittens. The mother had died after giving birth. I’m not sure how long he waited to ask for help, but by the time I got them, they were weak and cold.

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!

In the winter, the kitten season is generally over. Not completely, of course, because of California’s temperate climate, mating can continue all year long. Areas with much snow, for example, have an extremely low kitten rate in the winter.
