Football season is here. No position is more important on the field than a team’s quarterback. He serves as the leader, the play caller, the face of the team, and one who delivers the ball to his playmakers. The sport is America’s past time. It’s hard to imagine that no matter what level of play it is, whether in college and especially in the pros where for all those individuals from the game’s past and present, very few have been Hispanic.

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. But thankfully, we do have some interesting and unique places to go where good food can be found.

Summer has officially drawn to a close. This will go down as a memorable one for the books.

The months of June and July set the bar very high, and as August closes its doors, it was a good finale of what was a spectacular summer for entertainment.
