Editor's Note 

July 2019

LAZY DAYS by the lake, juicy tomatoes picked right off the vine, poolside parties that stretch into starry nights – summer is in full swing, and it’s sun-sational.

There’s nothing quite like a big scoop of ice cream on a blistering hot day, and one tucked into a donut is even sweeter. So be sure to take note when Cool Cow Scoops and Bite Me Mini Donuts come around. The proprietors are thrilled to bring some sweetness to the Valley.

If you’re looking for a bit of Italy, look no further – Brian and Stephanie Terrizzi have brought it here for you. Their Italian-inspired Giornata Wines perfectly complement their Etto Pastificio, which they learned to make by watching the experts at artisanal pasta factories in Italy. No passport required!

We’re always amazed by the interesting folks we bump into here. Bob Farley’s chance childhood meeting with a world-famous pole vaulter set him on a course that eventually led to him organizing the North American Pole Vault Association Championships. Today, at age 81, he’s looking forward to the the 25th annual event at the Clovis Farmers Market. 

Need to protect your noggin, or are you looking for a new fashion statement? Keryn Nicholson loved her dad’s hats as a kid, and reshaped them to fit her own head. Now, she’s sharing the love through her Nicholson Hat Co.

Treadmills can be so tiresome – why not shake up your summer workout routine? Blueprint Studios offers a blend of boxing and weight training that’s a fun, unique workout for people of all athletic abilities. 

Slather on some sunscreen, pour yourself an ice-cold beverage and savor every moment of sweet summer. Enjoy!
