Boating is one of the most fun and adventurous water sport. However, it is a source of many earning the bread and butter. Though it is a very exciting experience for many of us, it can at times become equally dangerous. Unexpected Storms, cyclones, tsunamis, and other harsh weather conditions can create a lot of trouble for the riders; hence, it is always a smart idea to carry all the safety equipment with you.

The key factor in defining a sports drink is that it is high in carbohydrates, effectively allowing it to provide an energy boost while helping to keep you hydrated.

Spring is my favorite time of year to ride my bike in the Central Valley. The weather is ideal and the views are amazing. Riding in the recent Blossom Bike Ride out of Reedley, I was mesmerized by all the blossoms, wildflowers, green hills, snowcapped mountains, and flowing rivers, creeks and streams. Being outside and able to soak in all that gorgeousness from my bike is as good as it gets for me!

Recently Channel 30 News aired a special on the unsafe school buses on our valley roads.

However, I wasn’t so surprised that the only problem cited was exhaust emissions. Many people are unaware that the school bus is the safest mode of transportation known to man. I am an advocate for clean air and I am aware of the emission problems all internal combustion engines have, but before everyone gasps for air and holds their nose when they are around a school bus, let’s explore how safe that school bus actually is.

The season of joy, forgiveness, thankfulness and hope is upon us. In a perfect world, we should celebrate the birth of our Lord every day, be ever mindful of his sacrifice and be generous with our giving.

Unfortunately, this is not a perfect world and very often we find ourselves in situations that cause just the opposite to happen. Sometimes no matter what we try to do things just do not go how we hope.
