A solid foundation in the knowledge of our political system is an important part of being an American citizen. Luckily, for students at Reedley High, the new Constitution Club on campus provides an opportunity for students to discuss not only the federal government, but also political institutions on the state and local levels. Nearly a year of preparation and discussion was involved before the club could be officially established.

Caring for an aging family member can be stressful. Some elderly family members are still able to thrive while living at home, but others may need some extra resources to ensure their safety and well-being. Because many older adults find using stairs to be difficult, stairlifts are one of the best options to ensure their comfort and safety.

At 7:20 on a crisp, clear Saturday morning in January, just as the sun began to makes its presence known east of the Sierras, three pick-up trucks sat idling, keeping the occupants toasty warm in the parking lot of one of the oldest businesses in Reedley. At 7:23 the lights inside Reedley Lumber Co. popped on in sections, indicating to the outside world, namely the aforementioned men huddling in the warmth of their vehicles, that the day was officially beginning. At 7:26 the doors were unlocked, and like moths to a flame, the gentlemen who had been so patiently waiting, exited the comfort of their trucks and made a beeline for the entrance.

Flowers and chocolate are nice, but they’re expected. They’re a staple of Valentine’s Day, more likely to earn a polite “Thank you” and a smile than any real gratitude. So why not get your sweetheart a gift they’ll never expect?

The Sports Medicine Club at Reedley High has been an important part of the school’s athletic programs since 1987. The club not only learns about the different injuries athletes may sustain during play, but also the methods which they undergo in rehabilitation and physical therapy. Students are provided with the opportunity to gain practical experience by assisting after school at the athletic training facility with the certified athletic trainer.

Things were as they had been for a long time. Nothing much changed. Relationships were well defined. Alliances were set. Positions were clear. Lines were drawn in indelible ink. It was comfortable.

As the days shorten and the air turns cold and crisp, thoughts turn to the holidays and all of the chaos that they conjure. ‘Tis the season of mad dashes on Black Friday, packed parking lots, a veritable flood of Christmas parties and gift exchanges, and the scramble of last-minute everything.

Christmas Traditions Great and Small

As a child, I didn’t realize that our family Christmas traditions were not everyone’s Christmas traditions. I thought everyone went to mass on Christmas Eve, then gathered at their grandparents’ house, ate hotdogs and potato salad, and opened gifts (insert the screeching sound of a car coming to a halt here). This was the ritual that happened annually and that my siblings and I longed for each year. Hotdogs and potato salad!?

Knit, purl, knit, purl. I can do that, I thought to myself. My youngest son needed a sweater and I wanted to expand my skills, so I leafed through the knitting patterns in the book. There was a Norwegian pattern with white snowflakes and reindeer at the top. I had never knitted a pattern with two colors, but I was going to try.

Planning a house move or relocation can be a stressful and trying experience. The best thing you can do is to look for ways of making it as stress-free as possible. Most of us will be moving at some point in our lives, and the better we prepare for it now, the better things will work out during the actual moving process. It can be a big undertaking, and you have to make sure you have covered all your bases.
