Brick & Stone Coffee in Dinuba

by Lorie Lewis Ham


Near the end of last year, Anthony and Evelyn Reyna opened a new coffee shop in downtown Dinuba, CA called Brick & Stone. While coffee is great all year long, as the weather begins to cool off nothing sounds better than a great cup of coffee, so it seemed like the perfect time to learn more about the new kid in town. Recently we chatted with their manager, Mikayla Protzman.

50 Years of Career Technical Education Excellence

by Jim Mulligan


Here in southeastern Fresno County and a sliver of Tulare County, there exists a school with a geographic reach larger than most. This school has no mascot, no marching band, and no football team. It doesn’t have its own cafeteria or bus fleet. Its student body has never elected homecoming royalty. What it does have is over 7,000 students, enrolled in over 340 high school classes, taught by almost 100 teachers whose primary credentialing criteria is years of experience in their respective industries. For fifty years, the Valley Regional Occupational Program (ROP) has provided career technical education opportunities for tens of thousands of high school students in our area.

by Lorie Lewis Ham


Even as a life long resident of Reedley, CA and a member of the media, there are things in Reedley that I am not aware of. Earlier this year I was approached by someone about doing an article about Kings Canyon High School (KCHS) and set out to find out exactly what KCHS was because I honestly had no idea. This led me to my interview with Randy Bessey, Ed.D., Program Administrator at KCHS which I am sharing with you today! I am glad I went on this journey to learn more and hope you will go on it with me now--you won't regret it!

The Great Food Search: Chain Diners

by Terrance Mc Arthur



Where do you eat when you don’t want to cook? Where do you go when you want good, old-fashioned food that isn’t in a paper bag? There are the family-style diners, where you can get bacon and eggs or a steak dinner, open up to 24 hours a day. This Food Quest explores a sampling of these restaurants. The goal was to choose simple, basic food that would show the strengths and weaknesses of each chain.

J’s Sports Bar & Grill in Dinuba

by Zachariah Zendejas



J’s Sports Bar and Grill in Dinuba is decorated specifically to engage you while watching a game on T.V. After I was seated, I perused the menu looking for something that caught my eye. I finally decided on the turkey sandwich: thinly sliced oven roasted turkey on a French roll with baby leaf lettuce, sliced tomatoes, provolone, roasted red peppers and chipotle mayonnaise.
