All that rain has made for an abundantly gorgeous spring - and isn’t that just the loveliest metaphor for life?

Happy kids are the heart of a healthy community, and the Tulare County Child Abuse Prevention Council provides resources to ensure that children are safe, loved and nurtured. We all play a role, and we’ll tell you how you can pitch in.

Have you been sitting on a dream? Leila Garrett may inspire you to dust it right off and share it with the world. Her Willow and Fig Leather Company outfits stylish youngsters with one-of-a-kind moccasins and purses, and she’s loving the opportunity to share her creativity.

For Visalia native Ted Nunes, creativity comes in the form of music. The front man for local band Richfield (and occasional thespian) writes music daily, and his band has built an impressive following.

Then, step back in history with us — way, way back — and enjoy the Tulare County Renaissance Fair, where you can play medieval games, browse the wares of talented craftspeople, dig into an enormous turkey leg and watch a jousting battle unfold.

Speaking of history, the Kingsburg Train Depot has a rich one, and the Friends of the Historic Kingsburg Depot are ensuring that it’s not forgotten. It’s been restored to a historic 1923 configuration, and it’s a fun place to explore.

‘Tis the season for spring cleaning, and we’ll give you some tips for refreshing your home, from curb to closet. Minor investments can pay big dividends.

And once your project is done, treat yourself to a delightful little morsel from Crumb and Get ‘Em Cupcakes. S’mores cupcakes? Take our money!

Wishing you a bright and beautiful spring. Enjoy!
