This week we continue our series of interviews with the current board members of Reedley’s very own theatre company, River City Theatre Co.(RCTC)--many of whom are also local actors themselves who have been on the RCTC stage many times over the years. This time we are chatting with Co-Treasurer Jacob Alvarado.
It has been a few months since my last column. There has been so much going on that finding the time to sit and write has proved quite elusive. I left off in mid-September as the vet was returning from an extended vacation. “Popeye” had just had successful eye surgery. He was subsequently adopted by my son as a companion for his other cat.
Reedley’s very own theatre company, River City Theatre Co.(RCTC), has seen a lot of changes over the last few years. We thought it would be fun to get to know some of their current board members—many of whom are also local actors themselves who have been on the RCTC stage many times over the years. This time we are chatting with Co-Treasurer Chrystal Laita.
As winter approaches and temperatures drop in the Valley, Kings Canyon Unified School District (KCUSD) is bringing warmth and vibrancy to the community through its Visual & Performing Arts (VAPA) programs. From elementary schools to high schools, the district's commitment to fostering creativity and artistic expression is evident in the diverse offerings that make up the VAPA umbrella.
Nestled in the picturesque landscapes of the eastern Central Valley of California, Reedley College is home to a unique and thriving agricultural endeavor that is allowing students to gain hands-on experience in the world of business and marketing. Agriculture Business students at the college are taking the olives grown on campus and turning them into bottled, marketable olive oil, offering a taste of entrepreneurship and marketing prowess.
Reedley’s very own theatre company, River City Theatre Co.(RCTC), has seen a lot of changes over the last few years. Recently, they hired local actor Peter Allwine as their new General Manager. KRL thought it would be interesting to get to know some of the current RCTC board members a little better—many are also local actors themselves who had been on the RCTC stage many times over the years. We are starting off with Stevie Barnett, who is their current board secretary.
This week we have an interview with local author and former Reedley College Instructor David Borofka and information on his upcoming book event at Book Barn in Clovis.
It has been a while since KRL interviewed any local teachers, so we thought it was about time. This week we are chatting with the new choir director for KCUSD, Calista Domingcil. She began this August. Calista says that her job as Choir Director is to teach students how to sing, read music, and work well with others.
Jackie Dale-TheCatMother/Cat Trapper: Still Lots of Kittens, Some Finally Left, Working on a Deadline
Although I kept saying I wasn’t going to take in any cats/kittens during our home improvements, I apparently have a hard time saying “No.” I got a call from one of my feeders about an injured kitten at a local strip mall. I went to check it out and as I pulled up, I immediately saw the kitten. It was just sitting there with another cat that I assumed to be the mother cat. As I approached, it continued to sit there until I got very close.
The past two months have been busy. I took in a white kitten from a local woman. She called two days later saying there were two more. Then, they asked if I could take the mom cat as well, and I said yes because then I would not have to bottle feed. Then, she said the cat got out. Oh, I just love that. She finally got the mom cat, and I made a third trip to town to pick her up. I was so annoyed by this I forgot to bring a carrier, so the cat had to ride on the dashboard on the way back. Not a problem for the now named Olive. Her three kittens are adorable.
