IT’S BEEN ONE of our mantras since we took that leap of faith and launched Enjoy Magazine – the sky’s the limit. How true those words have proven to be.

You’ll see stars every time you step into the Barn Theater, which has brought stage productions to South Valley residents for 70 years. Its volunteers delight in thrilling the community with the magic of live theater.

Then meet the Ruiz family, who launched a father-and-son venture in 1964 and now create products that people all over the United States have in their freezers. We’ll tell you the story behind Tulare County’s Ruiz Foods.

We didn’t think we could possibly admire the talents of freelance writer Jordan Venema any more than we already do - until we asked him to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, and he agreed. His story (and the photos!) may just convince you to strap on a parachute and learn to fly.

Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of daily life, we forget to look up. Not the folks in the Tulare Astronomical Association. All are welcome to join the fun, whether you’re interested in stargazing or you want to dive deeper into the diverse science of astronomy. Peek into a telescope, and the universe seems to get a whole lot smaller.

Finally, we’ll introduce you to James Andersen, who has made a career out of predicting whether we’ll be able to see those stars on any given night. The dreams of this National Weather Service meteorologist were launched when he received a fateful gift for his eighth birthday.

The sky is indeed the limit – so enjoy!
