A few months ago a new coffee shop opened in downtown Reedley called Mama’s Café. My daughter and I now visit there on a regular basis. This is something that has been missing from downtown for awhile now-it is nice to have somewhere other than Starbucks to go to for good coffee and a nice place to hang out. But Mama’s offers a lot more than that. Recently we sat down to chat with owners Jose and Jacqueline Escoto to learn a bit more about this unique shop.

Disney’s Newsies musical hit the Roger Rocka’s stage this past weekend, presented by Good Company Players. I had never seen the show before, but I was familiar with several of its songs and had seen a performance on the Tony’s, where it won awards for Best Original Score and Best Choreography.

May 29 is the 9th anniversary of KRL! It’s been an amazing 9 years that have seen a lot of changes. Thanks to all of you who read KRL and I hope you continue to do so for many more years to come. It has also been almost a year since the first episode of Mysteryrat’s Maze Podcast went up! The new year ahead of us will likely see many more changes, but we will always stay true to our core and you will always find mystery, theatre, animal rescue and more in KRL and KRL News and Reviews!
