Poet’s trials inspire work

Third-generation Japanese American poet Lawson Fusao Inada was born in Fresno, where his grandparents founded the Fresno Fish Market, his father was a dentist and his mother held a college degree in teaching.

“When I was a little kid — I had just turned 4 — we moved into the county fairgrounds,” Inada said in a recent interview. “We were there for several months — they built barracks at the fairgrounds — and then were moved by train to a camp in a swampy area in Arkansas.”

Smokey the Bear, everybody’s favorite U.S. Forest Service employee, and some of his crew were able to take a break from fighting the nearby fire and attend our Berry Festival in Klamath this last Saturday. We had so much fun. 

Alex and his team from Home Depot brought little airplane constructing kits for the kids to build and then paint. It was the perfect activity to pair with the huge display of RC planes and flight simulator at another vendor’s booth, and all for free. 

Thank You: Firefighter saved a life

It was Saturday morning. My husband Bob and I had just come home from his appointment at the podiatrist for his toes and stopped at the Hiouchi Cafe, where we had a nice breakfast. We were in the process of walking up the garage stairs at our home and Bob lost his balance and tumbled down the stairs. His head lay motionless on the cement with his legs partially on the stairs. The fall had knocked him unconscious.
