Central Valley women in agriculture recognized

Souza is named — along with 11 additional Central Valley women — as a recipient of the Common Threads award from the California Agricultural Leadership Foundation and the Ag One Foundation.Both organizations are part of Fresno State University's College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology college.

Souza is named — along with 11 additional Central Valley women — as a recipient of the Common Threads award from the California Agricultural Leadership Foundation and the Ag One Foundation.

Both organizations are part of Fresno State University's College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology college. The objective of the Common Threads award is honoring women in agriculture "who make a philanthropic difference in their communities and the world," according to a press release.

"I was raised around farming," she said, explaining her parents worked on various dairy farms in the area when she was growing up.

"He was in a partnership with his parents and he decided to go out on his own," she said of her husband, with whom she's been married for 42 years.

"I like to say, 'We had 80 acres and a shovel.' I did my share of chopping cotton, and whatever was necessary to make our farm grow," Souza said. "We managed to do it."

In 1984, she gave birth to twins: Brandon and Chad. Soon, she became involved in 4-H and Future Farmers of America (FFA).

"Then, when my boys went on to high school, we stayed involved in 4-H and transitioned to FFA," she said.

Brandon went on to graduate from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, while Chad graduated from Fresno State.

"The whole [ag] program was a wonderful opportunity for my children and my husband...who was always involved with [4-H]," Souza continued. "But for me it was a new experience."

She and her husband recently retired, after farming for nearly four decades — mostly walnut orchards.

"Ag is the backbone of our community," she said. "I think whatever we did for the community pales compared to what the industry has done for us. We're just blessed — anything that we've done has come back to us three times over."

Souza expressed gratitude to Ag One and the Ag Leadership foundations for recognizing her — along with 11 other Central Valley women — for their contributions to agriculture and their communities.

"You know, this valley feeds the world," she said, acknowledging water shortages and other issues that are setbacks for Central Valley farmers and ranchers. "Ag has always been able to rise to the occasion.

"Ag is the core, and people I've been involved with are just the salt of the earth," Souza said. "I have no doubt that ag will continue, but just in a different manner."

"I'm truly honored," she said, attributing most of her success in ag to hard work.

"When you're a farmer...there's always work to be done," Souza said. "Hard work. Dedication. It's a way of life — farming."

She quickly returns to youth groups, family and neighbors as vital to the success of farmers.

"4-H, FFA, the community," she said. "It's all people in ag. We know each other. You just feel that support and camaraderie."

Harkening back to childhood, when she first relocated to the Central Valley, Souza expressed her views about the benefits of raising children in an agricultural home and region devoted to hard work.

"I feel very strongly that it starts at home," she said. "I think, with the farm community, there's a lot of work to be done. It instills in [children] a work ethic."

Twelve women have been selected as the 2022 honorees for the Common Threads Award. These San Joaquin Valley women have strong agricultural backgrounds and are active participants in their communities through philanthropic endeavors and community service.

"We're so very delighted to be honoring these women from the Central Valley," said Alicidia Gomes, executive director of Ag One. "They have done so much to contribute to our community, whether it's time, talent or treasure."

Valley Christian Academy forfeits chance for outright league title vs. Coast Union | Eight-man football

Valley Christian Academy athletic director and eight-man football coach Pete Fortier Monday said his team has forfeited its scheduled Oct. 29 home game, and a chance at the outright Coast Valley League championship, against Coast Union.

Coast Union athletic director and football coach Andrew Crosby, who is also a math teacher at the school, said in a Monday email to the Times that VCA is forfeiting the game because Coast Union has a female student-athlete on its team.

With the forfeit, the Lions finished in a three-way tie with Coast Union and Cuyama Valley for the CVL championship. All three teams will finish with a 3-1 league record.

VCA beat Cuyama Valley 75-20 Oct. 1. Cuyama Valley defeated Coast Union 52-30 last Thursday. Cuyama Valley finished 8-1 overall. Coast Union and VCA will finish 7-2 and 5-2 respectively.

This marks the third time in the last two years that VCA has forfeited a football game. The Lions forfeited a scheduled game against Cuyama Valley in an abbreviated 2021 spring season. VCA forfeited again to Cuyama Valley during a full 2021 fall schedule, because the Bears had a female player on their squad.

The school was accused of sex discrimination after refusing to play Cuyama Valley in the spring of 2021. In a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in 2021, plaintiff Sonya Herrera accused Valley Christian Academy of violating the Title IX law after the private school changed its schedule to avoid playing Cuyama Valley because her daughter was a member of the team. The complaint was filed after Alfonso Gamino, Cuyama Joint Union High School District’s superintendent, received a letter following a scrimmage with VCA, explaining that VCA won’t play the Cuyama team because of the female member identified as “E.H.” in the lawsuit.

Back in 2021, VCA superintendent and lead pastor Joel Mikkelson noted in a letter to Gamino that the school's student handbook states "there is to be no physical contact between boys and girls at Valley Christian Academy."

Title IX is the federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs. VCA is a member of the California Interscholastic Federation, which oversees public and private high school athletics in the state, and includes a condition that it must comply with Title IX.

CIF Southern Section Assistant Commissioner Thom Simmons said in a Monday email to the Times that the matter was a league and school issue and did not involve the CIF Southern Section.

VCA wrapped up a share of the CVL title with a 51-6 win at home against San Luis Obispo Classical Academy last Saturday as Jacob Sanders ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries. Sanders recovered a Grizzlies fumble on defense.

Lions quarterback Sean Swain threw two touchdown passes, to Tristan Fortier and James Fakouri. Swain threw incompletions on his other three passes.

Swain and Cole Simms both rushed for a Lions touchdown. On defense for VCA, Fortier intercepted a pass and had a sack, Jordan Tittes made two sacks, and Noah List had a sack and a fumble recovery.

Laton 46, Orcutt 36

The Mustangs (4-3, 2-2) beat the Spartans (2-5, 2-3) in a Sierra League eight-man game at Laton last Thursday. The game was Orcutt's regular season finale.

Orcutt quarterback Isaiah Wiechinger threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns. He was intercepted once. Weichinger ran for 98 yards, and a touchdown, on just five carries. Wiechinger completed nine of his 17 passes.

Spartans receiver Leroy Johnson caught three passes, including two touchdowns, for a game high 120 yards.

Tyler Miller and Isaiah Dollahite ran for an Orcutt touchdown each.

Johnathan Garcia had a part in six Mustangs touchdowns. He ran for three and passed for three more. Garcia connected on 14 of his 33 passes for 277 yards.

RC Willey leaves Riverdale, consolidating at Layton location

RIVERDALE — RC Willey, a long-time retail anchor on the northern end of Riverdale Road, has left the location, the final prong in a major reorganization of stores in Utah to keep pace with changing times.“This is the final change in how we get up to date with the look we want,” said Scott Hymas, chief executive officer of the Salt Lake City-based furniture store chain, which has outlets in Utah, Idaho, Nevada and California. The location at 4045 ...

RIVERDALE — RC Willey, a long-time retail anchor on the northern end of Riverdale Road, has left the location, the final prong in a major reorganization of stores in Utah to keep pace with changing times.

“This is the final change in how we get up to date with the look we want,” said Scott Hymas, chief executive officer of the Salt Lake City-based furniture store chain, which has outlets in Utah, Idaho, Nevada and California. The location at 4045 Riverdale Road closed its doors in June.

RC Willey’s departure represents a financial blow to the city of Riverdale. The store generated around $450,000 a year in sales tax funds for Riverdale, where retail dominates, making it the eighth-highest sales tax generator in the city, according to Mike Eggett, community development director for Riverdale.

“That’ll be a huge loss for us, a huge loss,” said Riverdale Mayor Braden Mitchell.

Businesses ebb and flow in Riverdale, though, and Eggett suspects the city will be able to survive until the vacant spot is filled. RC Willey moved to the Riverdale Road location in the mid-1990s, according to Hymas.

“The city has a level of resilience when it comes to empty spaces,” Eggett said. He recalled that one spot once remained vacant for perhaps two years, but that’s perhaps the longest it’s taken to find a tenant to fill an empty storefront.

Hymas, meantime, said the closure of the Riverdale store isn’t a reflection of RC Willey’s economic health or even of the Riverdale location’s popularity. “It’s been a great location for us,” he said, and 2021 for RC Willey “was the best year we had in the history of the company.”

Rather, the closure was part of a reorganization that dates back eight years that’s meant, in part, to put RC Willey locations closer to interstates, to make them more easily accessible, to make them destination shopping spots. In announcing the closure, company officials said the Riverdale store was “merging” with the new Layton store, built in 2020. The Syracuse RC Willey closed in 2020, also as part of efforts to focus Northern Utah operations at the larger new Layton location.

RC Willey didn’t lay off any workers as part of the changes, though some left on their own volition through retirement or for other reasons, according to Hymas.

What comes next for the 4045 Riverdale Road location is up in the air, Eggett said. Several other smaller storefronts to the southwest are also vacant, spaces that used to house Gap, Crazy 8 and The Children’s Place. “There’s no confirmation on what’s happening,” he said.

Some have speculated on social media that townhomes may be in the offing at the old RC Willey locations, but such development would require a rezone of the land, change not in the cards. “Right now it’s not happening,” Eggett said.

The Kings Players at the Temple Theater wrap up their 2022 season with the light-hearted comedy, Wage Warfare.

Young Hope finds herself sandwiched in between prim Bonnie and surly Louise, with the only apparent "hope" for relief being a sudden opportunity for promotion.

Antics ensue when the three women vie for the promotion and do their best to undermine each other, as Hope is reluctantly drawn into the other two women’s skulduggery.

Hapless boss, Mr. Clogsworth, is oblivious to their shenanigans (except in Hope’s dreams) and believes his pep talks truly motivate his “troops”. Meanwhile, Hope longs for romance and a better life, as the handsome UPS man and rockstar Aaron Starr punctuate her daily life and her daydreams.

Natalie Halverson stars as Hope, a sweet and conscientious young woman just trying to build a career. Natalie is a newcomer to The Kings Players and the Temple Theater stage, but is a veteran of several serious (and other) plays in school and beyond.

Veteran actor RaeLynn Royer, a familiar face at the Temple Theater, and fresh off her tour de force as Ethel Savage in this summer’s The Curious Savage, plays Louise. Louise is an irreverent, feisty curmudgeon, perennially grumbling, who does her best to undermine Hope’s chances for promotion.

Elizabethe Lozano plays Bonnie, a proper, somewhat prim woman who feels guilty about her scheming, and whose reserved exterior hides another side.

The Kings Players is happy to welcome Elizabethe back after many years. She appeared in several productions at the Temple Theater in the 1990s.

Michael Barker plays hapless boss, Mr. Clogsworth. Michael has previously appeared in shows with The Kings Players, is a veteran of many shows in another theater and was memorably hilarious in the comedy The Money in Uncle George’s Suitcase at the start of this year.

Jared Kirk, on fire at the Temple Theater this year, returns to our stage immediately after appearing in both The Curious Savage and The Widow in Mink. This spring, Jared played the lovelorn boyfriend to Amanda Braden’s "Julie", niece to the title character in The Widow in Mink, played by current Stage Manager Vicki Ralston.

Jared had the chance to appear with his mother, RaeLynn, in The Curious Savage, and now joins her, again. In a familial coup de grace, Brandon Kirk, Jared’s brother, appears for the first time on our stage as rockstar (“and music icon”) Aaron Starr.

Aaron helps transport Hope out of the mundane office, if only for a moment. Brandon brings real life guitar skills to the role and is happy to join his mother and brother on stage.

Winding up our cast is Salma Alatorre, returning to our stage in a cameo role after appearing at the Temple Theater in The Children’s Story in 2019. Salma is very active in dance and other activities at her school and has appeared in other assorted performances.

Joseph Katz, familiar to the Temple Theater stage with The Kings Players in several productions, makes his directorial debut with this amusing farce.

Assistant Director, Amanda Braden, appeared in previous plays with The Kings Players, notably starring in Merry Christmas, Dear Grandpa, last winter, and in The Widow in Mink. John Rabe, long-time board member of The Kings Players, actor and resident Temple Theater "captain of the ship," was largely responsible for building the set, along with longtime co-pilot Duffy Caskey, and is handling lighting.

Ace Silveira, also a long-time board member with The Kings Players, is handling the sound effects.

Wage Warfare runs through Nov. 6, with evening shows at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 28, and 29 and Nov. 4 and with matinees at 2 p.m. on Oct. 30, and Nov. 5 and 6.

Tickets are at kingsplayers.org or call (559) 584-7241.
