We all know that Reedley College is the gem of the Valley when it comes to programs for everyone from students right out of high school to grandmothers who want to hone their ceramics skills. Students choose the beautiful, rural setting of Reedley College to get a start on their bachelor’s degrees, to learn highly technical and sought after job skills such as welding or diesel mechanics, to learn how to maintain and fly planes, and to increase their knowledge base in order to make a career change.

Let me start with this. Many things have been closed that have never been closed before:
Doctor’s offices.
Stores and restaurants. Beauty Salons and barbers.

In 2020, we are profiling members of the Reedley Fire Department. This interview though is a little bit different as he is not only a part of the Reedley Fire Department, but also Selma. Albert Rodriguez is a Captain with the Reedley Fire Department. He worked as an EMT with the Sequoia Safety Council for 20 years while working with Reedley Fire at the same time. Albert left the Sequoia Safety council when he was offered the job with the Selma Fire Department, but continues to work for Reedley Fire during his days off.

Although Reedley High made the difficult decision to close campus for the rest of the school year amid concerns about student and public health, teachers and staff are still working to continue providing students with quality education. Classes have shifted from the classroom to computers and phones with the use of a variety of apps. Google Classroom provides students with a way to virtually access assignments, notes, and ensure that they are completing tasks.

I had never heard of it before March, 2020. First, the talk was all about coronavirus. I looked it up on Google and found that most influenzas were coronaviruses. Well, I don’t get any flu easily so I didn’t worry. Then, they found that this is a new virus, one that no one has any immunity for.

I’ll be honest; I wasn’t the most fanatical of sports fans when I was a youngster. Don’t get me wrong, my neighborhood friends and I played baseball in the street, football at the local elementary school, and basketball at any number of homes that had a hoop. But not everyone lives and breathes sports. I didn’t. That being said, even I and other non-aficionados of sports would recognize the Wide World of Sports introduction by Jim McKay, or the welcoming tones of Vin Scully. And, please don’t even tell me that if you close your eyes and think about it, you can’t hear the calculated, halting, and sometimes arguably annoying voice of Howard Cosell? Just take a moment and try it.

Dolls and Mother’s Day

by Margaret Mendel


In the last couple of years, Mother’s Day brings dolls to my mind. It’s not like I was a little girl with lots of dolls. In fact, I remember only a couple of occasions where dolls were part of my life. But as the years passed, and I transitioned from daughter to mother and now to grandmother, dolls have sweetly slipped into my life. Perhaps it’s the fictionalizing of my past as situations sometimes get fuzzy, and I suppose this is when the mind mixes and matches reality with invention. But for whatever reason, lately dolls have become one of my preoccupations.

If you dig back into your memory bank, you might be able to remember that Fred Flintstone and his friend Barney Rubble were members of the Loyal Order of Water Buffaloes, Lodge No. 26. At the very least, you can probably picture their funny, fuzzy headgear. Can you remember the title of the lodge leader? If you can recollect the hijinks portrayed by the members of that fictional organization in Bedrock, you might have a skewed understanding of what actual fraternal organizations do in the United States.
