Hanford and environs can be a bit quirky. Having grown up here, I’ve seen it evolve – and devolve at times – from only locally-owned restaurants and cafes to a glut of chain eateries while mom-and-pop places struggle to survive.

After stuffing myself with ice cream in June, I turned the Great Food Search toward a more healthy highway of food—salads. Some people look down on salads as that green stuff they have to chomp through before they can really eat something, but the dishes I am about to introduce to you are more than a mouthful—this is FOOD!

Although Evie Bloomfield has lived on Mackinac Island for two years, she’s still considered a come-here fudgie and not a born-here native. That doesn’t mean that Evie hasn’t already developed a reputation as a dead body finder, not to mention being a self-admitted busybody.

According to the Oxford Dictionary, technology is “the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry.” In the modern world, the word “industry” is so closely linked to computers that we assume that technology is limited to computers as well. However, the oxford dictionary expands the definition so nearly every invention in history can be considered a technology. Such an invention would be the typewriter, which has been surpassed by the computer industry, but it has managed to create a legacy of its own.

Graduation was a time of great excitement and anticipation! There were rehearsals to attend, and friends and teachers to say farewell to. As the final days turned into hours, and hours turned into minutes before we had to proceed to our seats on the Reedley High School football field, my classmates and I were starting to feel the sting of nervousness. I, who had the duty of being the featured speaker of the evening, was feeling that nervousness the most.

Every band member in the Reedley High School Pirate marching band knows that the last Saturday in October is a big day. That is always the day that is dedicated to the Selma Band Review, the most important band review for our band! We know to mark that day on our calendars and get plenty of rest the evening before, have to memorize our show songs and choreography, and we practice for weeks.
