Andrew Janz is a candidate for Congress in District 22 in California who is running against Devin Nunes. While KRL doesn’t publicly endorse any candidates, I had the chance to meet with Janz before the primary elections and I liked what I saw and heard so I decided to ask him some questions that I think our readers would be interested in.

Californians don’t need to be told that it can get hot in California. Really hot. The highest temperature ever recorded here was 134 degrees. Although it might not always reach these extreme temperatures, but when it’s hot and dry, it’s even more important to make sure you are looking after your body and giving it what it needs to keep cool.

It was every boy’s dream to own a bike, expand your horizons of exploration or visit friends across town. The Cadillac of bicycles was the Schwinn Phantom with a springer front end. Mr. Parkinson was our Schwinn dealer in Reedley. His store was one of the last buildings on G Street with a board walk. It sat between Allied Equipment (the International Harvester dealer) and Enns’ Pontiac used car lot–almost directly across from Harmony Home.

Water can easily be taken for granted. We turn on the faucet and water quickly runs from the tap.

I first visited Wildwater Adventure Park in 1996. I was just a Pa. My two sons were teenagers. I put in my time, paid my dues, and eventually got promoted from a Pa to a Grandpa. That means perfect fun with perfect grandchildren.
