What brings more than 5,000 people to Garden Plaza in downtown Visalia on a chilly Thanksgiving morning at 7:30 a.m.? The Race Against Hunger (or “Turkey Trot” as some affectionately call it)-the largest 5k run/2-mile walk in the Central Valley!
It's hard to believe that eight years have passed since I was first elected to the Visalia City Council. Back in 2009, we were in the midst of a recession, Mooney Boulevard looked like a ghost town, and consumer confidence had bottomed out. What a difference eight years make!
Just when you thought that it was too late in the season to plant vegetables in the garden, you will be happy to learn that you can still plant members of the allium family. For those who don’t speak botanical Latin, alliums are members of the onion family.
