A former high school exchange student from Ukraine who spent a year in Kingsburg is returning to the Valley Wednesday night.

It took six days but Nick Zinchenko finally got the green light from U.S. Immigration to return to Kingsburg and seek political asylum.

Zinchenko was an exchange student at Kingsburg High from 2015 to 2016. It's a bond created seven years ago that Chad Thompson says still exists today.

"He is my son, he is our son, he's my son's brother. We've been tight ever since he came here in 2015."

After high school Zinchenko decided to become a sailor. Last Friday the boat he was working on pulled into port in Houston.

Zinchenko was told by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement that he had to return to Ukraine immediately. He alerted the Thompson Family and Chad was waiting for him in Houston.

"I was able to see Nick for ten minutes. Give him a hug. That's when Nick claimed asylum and they basically took him into custody, handcuffed him and took him off to some office."

Thompson hired a Texas attorney and waited for days in his hotel room. He decided to come back to Kingsburg on Tuesday.

"As soon as I hung up the phone with the attorney Nick called from his own cell phone saying Dad I'm out."

His attorney warned Thompson the asylum process can take up to two years. Zinchenko's parents and youngest sister are stuck in Kiev Ukraine but they support his decision to seek asylum.

"They're very grateful to me, my wife and family for everything we've don't for Nick."

During our interview Nick called to say he was heading to the Houston airport.

"You don't have to thank me buddy we love you."

While Zinchenko goes through the asylum process he'll be back with his Kingsburg family, making new memories.

His place lands Wednesday night at the Fresno airport just before midnight.

The Thompson Family has set up a gofundme account to help pay legal fees and travel expenses.

Each year, you can tell when Kingsburg’s Swedish Festival is drawing near. The pristine city shines even brighter as new Swedish and American flags are installed on the downtown’s Draper Street, poles are painted, every ounce of litter removed. The festival attracts visitors from far and wide. Even foreign tourists come for this three-day event. Over the past 56 years, the heritage of Kingsburg is celebrated. The festivities have changed, but one thing hasn’t changed; it’s steeped in highlighting the Swedish culture that has shaped the city into what it is today.

This year, it begins on Thursday, May 19 with the traditional Pea Soup and Swedish Pancake Supper. In Sweden children are provided free meals. On Thursdays, they are served pea soup with a pancake for dessert. Generally speaking, Swedes think it odd that Americans consider pancakes a breakfast food. Dinner will be served from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Draper Street with Swedish entertainment and the crowning of the Swedish Festival Queen included.

On Friday, May 20 festivities begin at 4:30 p.m. with the Public Safety Officer Dress Review & Award Ceremony, followed by an authentic Swedish Dinner consisting of Swedish meatballs in white sauce, pickled herring, potato sausages, rice pudding, lingonberries and much more. These events will include Swedish entertainment and will be held in the Coffee Pot Park until 8 p.m.

On Saturday, May 21 the town comes alive at 7 a.m. with the Dala Horse Trot and the Swedish Pancake Breakfast at Coffee Pot Park. Don’t let the long breakfast line be a discouragement, the Lions Club has organized the breakfast for maximum efficiency. The City’s Dala Trolley will be shuttling folks to the Historical Park from 9 am to 3 pm. The 1923 Historic Train Depot will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., festival food vendors and arts & craft vendors will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Opening Ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. with the Grand Parade beginning at 10:30 a.m. Over the last two years, the parade route has changed. It now circles Draper Street with the announcing stand being in front of the Senior Center at 1450 Ellis Street.

The last entry in the parade is the freshly decorated traditional Swedish maypole. It is carried throughout the parade route and then taken to Draper Street to be erected for the duration of the festival. As it makes its way, it is customary for festival goers to follow the maypole and when it’s set, to dance around it. The origin of the maypole is thought to be from around AD 1350 as a celebration of the return of warm weather.

There will be food vendors on Smith Street, except for the Swedish food vendors; they have a special area on Draper Street with all the arts & crafts vendors. Brandon Palsgaard is one of the Swedish Street Food vendors on Draper Street. He sells potatis korv (potato sausage). He offers a variety of special sausages using recipes that require three days to prepare. Better get here right away as he always sells out.

The arts & crafts vendors will include broom making, spinning and weaving demonstrations, Swedish children’s games with prizes, face painting, and Scandinavian t-shirts. Entertainment will include Swedish dancers and musicians throughout the day on Draper Street. At 1 p.m. a gospel quartet will be in concert at the Kingsburg Community church, 1532 Ellis Street. The day wraps up at 8 p.m. with a musical tribute sing-along to the Swedish pop group ABBA at Memorial Park.

Kingsburg’s iconic June Hess has served on the Swedish Festival Committee since 1985. Her shop, Svensk Butik is located at 1465 Draper Street. The maypole will be erected directly in front. Svensk Butik is famous for being packed full of fun and fascinating Swedish items, primarily imported from Sweden. While many festival goers don their Swedish garb during the three days, June wears Swedish outfits each day her shop is open. It would be difficult to live in Kingsburg and not know who she is. Multiple generations of her family have been instrumental in preserving the City’s Swedish heritage and she is an excellent source of information on Swedish culture and Kingsburg history.

Steve Safarjian, owner of RPS Real Estate, has served on the Swedish Festival Committee since 1974, making him the longest serving member.

Safarjian said, “It is my opinion that festivals are not to make a lot of money on a captive audience but rather, to showcase a way of life that Kingsburg has to offer. A great place to live, raise a family, work, shop and enjoy life.”

Kingsburg man helping Ukranian claim asylum in US

KINGSBURG, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A Kingsburg man who welcomed a Ukrainian exchange student into his home in 2015 is now helping him claim asylum in the United States following the outbreak of war in the eastern-European country.

Chad Thompson took Nick Zinchenko into his home as an exchange student approximately seven years ago and they have stayed in contact since. When Zinchenko finished school and became a mariner on a ship, he continued to visit Kingsburg.

Thompson says Zinchenko returned to port in Houston days before fighting erupted between Ukraine and Russia.

“Nick’s contract was complete, so he was slated to be replaced by a different crew member,” said Thompson. “So a group of his crew members got off the ship on Friday and with the war raging and getting worse, Nick made the decision. He wanted to claim asylum here in the United States.”

When Zinchenko told federal immigration officials that he wanted to claim asylum, it prompted a process that saw him detained in ICE’s Montgomery Processing Center in Texas. Thompson then spent the weekend finding an attorney to help Zinchenko in the asylum process – and found one to represent him. Zinchenko was released on Wednesday and is now back in Kingsburg.

Thompson says Zinchenko is doing great and that what he did is the same as what he would do for one of his own sons.

“His mom and dad and youngest sister are still stuck in Kyiv,” said Thompson. “They’re doing okay, for now. They’re happy that he’s here. They’re very thankful.”

Zinchenko was released pending court proceedings for an asylum claim and will have to report to an ICE agent next month. Thompson says the asylum process can take up to two years – but to have him out of federal detention is a huge weight lifted.

“The four or five days I was sitting in a Houston hotel trying to help him, I’ve never felt so hopeless and so anxious having my son in federal custody.”

Thompson estimates that he has put $10,000 into legal expenses so far, which is why he has set up an online fundraiser on GoFundMe to help fund legal fees to pay for the asylum process. A link to that page can be found here.

From the moment Jewel Hurtado became a Kingsburg councilmember, controversy and criticism has followed the young politician’s career.

After Hurtado defeated Kingsburg City Council incumbent Staci Smith by eight votes in 2018, there immediately were accusations that the then-20-year-old had cheated.

How could a Fresno City College sociology student who hadn’t yet established her own career win — let alone capably serve — in public office?

Nonetheless, the young Latina and single mother says she has been determined to persevere through the negativity and doubts, inspired by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, who sent Hurtado a video shout-out soon after the Kingsburg election.

“The hard times will come and go, but we just need to be persistent,” Hurtado said in an interview with The Fresno Bee in January 2019. “As family and friends say, ‘Si se puede’ — Yes, it can be done — and we are going to get through it together.”

But Hurtado’s efforts have been met with resistance.

Especially as the lone progressive voice on the five-member Kingsburg City Council.

And her own personal stumbles — Hurtado was arrested for misdemeanor DUI last month — have only fueled criticism against the embattled councilmember.

Back in the spring, Hurtado led a push to try to get Kingsburg to recognize LGBTQ+ Pride Month, which is typically commemorated in June in many cities.

Her efforts were eventually rejected as no other council member supported the motion.

Hurtado’s outspokenness also came with consequences.

Last month, she was named in a recall election notice with claims that Hurtado was supporting policies that had a “Marxist/socialist agenda.” Her seat would be up for election again in November 2022.

Hurtado countered that the push for her recall was happening because she stood up for equal opportunity and justice for all.

Those recall efforts gained momentum Tuesday after it was revealed that Hurtado was arrested on suspicion of DUI on June 21.

Hurtado, who is 22 years old, admitted to consuming an alcoholic beverage prior to getting behind the wheel and agreed to take a breath test at the scene, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s arrest report.

Hurtado issued a public apology and said she planned to donate her monthly city stipend to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD, Fresno) for the remainder of her term on the council, a sign that she does not plan to resign.

“I owe my constituents and supporters an apology,” Hurtado said. “I made a mistake and I am sorry.

“I’m taking responsibility for my actions and waiting for my day in front of a judge. I trust that they will make the right decision.”

A member of the Kingsburg City Council who is already facing a potential recall was arrested recently for allegedly driving under the influence.

Kingsburg Councilmember Jewel Hurtado was arrested on suspicion of DUI on June 21, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

Hurtado, 22, admitted to consuming an alcoholic beverage prior to getting behind the wheel and agreed to take a breath test at the scene, according to the Fresno County Sheriff’s arrest report.

The exact result of Hurtado’s breathalyzer test was redacted because it was preliminary, Fresno County Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti said.

But the officer’s report suggested that Hurtado registered a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 % or greater. California’s law prohibits driving with a BAC of 0.08% or more.

Hurtado was charged with misdemeanor DUI and released at the scene near Highway 41 and Shaw Avenue in care of another person on that early morning last month.

“I owe my constituents and supporters an apology,” Hurtado said in a telephone interview while reading a prepared statement. “I made a mistake and I am sorry.

“I’m taking responsibility for my actions and waiting for my day in front of a judge. I trust that they will make the right decision.”

Hurtado, who is in her first term, declined to comment when asked if she would consider resigning from the council. “Taking things one day at a time,” Hurtado said.

Hurtado is known as the lone progressive voice on the five-member Kingsburg City Council.

Recently, she led an unsuccessful push to recognize LGBTQ+ Pride Month, which is typically commemorated in June in many cities.

Her outspokenness hasn’t come without consequences. Last month, she was named in a recall election notice. Her seat would be up for election again in November 2022.

Filing a public notice is the first step in what is a strict process to get to the recall election, according to the Fresno County Registrar of Voters Office.

The notice alleges Hurtado supports policies that are bad for local businesses.

“Councilperson Hurtado has demonstrated a Marxist/socialist agenda in her activities and actions, which does not represent her constituency,” the public notice says. “Councilperson Hurtado favors rules and regulations that shackle our business community and prevent our city from thriving.”

Hurtado countered that the push for her recall was happening because she stood up for equal opportunity and justice for all.

In addition, Hurtado’s statement regarding her arrest suggested that she does not plan on stepping down.

“For those that have expressed their concern, trust that with the support of family and friends, I am working to be better and learn from this experience.

“Irrespective of the outcome, I’m committing to donating my monthly city stipend for the remainder of my term on the council to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD, Fresno).”
