Holy Helpers

andTom Sims
SECTIONS

by Tom Sims



Recently, I became aware of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. I was thinking about the lesson that Fred Rogers would teach children about how to cope with profound crisis. He said to look for the helpers because there were always helpers. Sometimes they we teachers, sometimes police officers or doctors and nurses. Sometimes they were neighbors, but there were always going to be helpers and the helpers would help.

Social distancing. It’s a term most of us had never heard of prior to a few weeks ago. I’m betting the Oxford English Dictionary will name it the Word of the Year for 2020, even if, technically, it’s two words.

“Help! Help! Someone please.” I heard the screaming right outside my motel room. I had been napping when I heard the woman scream. I jumped up and ran to the door. Flinging it open, I saw the woman in the next door unit running back and forth. In her arms she held a little girl, about a year old.

by Staff



As your loved one gets older, it’s time to start thinking about how they’ll be cared for. As much as you might like to do it yourself, it’s not realistic when you have a full-time job and family to look after yourself. If the idea of sending your older loved one to a retirement home doesn’t sit well with you, you’re not alone.

Holidays are the perfect opportunity to spend time with your friends and family. You have a moment to relax and have fun, catch up and reminisce. That said, some people think enjoying yourself is inseparable from drinking.

Money and Mental Health

IN THE March 4 ISSUE

andCommunity
SECTIONS

by Staff



It is considered that the more money you have, the better your mental health is. It’s because when you have some extra funds on your deposit, you can afford better healthcare, thus increasing your general condition. What’s more, is there is a direct connection between the money at your disposal and mental health issues. So money and mental health usually go hand by hand.

When it’s raining, or the temperature drops below 40 degrees, there won’t be a single activity that you can do without shivering. Although there are lots of benefits and perks to being active outdoors, it can cause you harm, as well.

We’ve all heard of book clubs, and often see photos of people enjoying books and coffee, or books and tea, but what about books and beer? Marissa Raigoza is part of a group that asked that same question and came up with Books, Beers, and Buddies in Fresno who meet at Goldstein’s Mortuary & Delicatessen. KRL took some time to sit down and chat with her about this interesting idea.

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.

by Jim Mulligan


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?
