People might wonder why a guy who spends his days with complex finance for billion-dollar healthcare network would pick up power tools in his off time to restore houses in one of Fresno’s most poverty-stricken neighborhoods. But I have a passion for the Lowell neighborhood.  I love the stories of the founding families of Fresno who lived here long ago.

Here in the Deran Koligian Ambulatory Care Center amazing things happen when it comes to giving. A father nervously brought in his 5-day-old baby wrapped in nothing but a diaper, onesie and a towel, in on the coldest day during the first week of December. Let’s remind you it was approximately 35 degrees that morning.

The holidays are a perfect time to catch up on reading just for fun.  This Christmas you won’t catch me knee deep in a James Michener novel.   Instead I look for lighthearted tales, with a tinge of sarcasm.   So if that’s your cup of tea as well, I recommend heating up a nice cup of hot chocolate and sitting down to read Tina Fey’s book “Bossy Pants<

It’s 4 a.m. About 40 emails have accumulated since I last checked my phone six hours ago --- news alerts, various listserves, political updates.

It’s 5:30 a.m. If I’m lucky, the delivery driver has left three newspapers at my door – the Fresno Bee, New York Times and Wall Street Journal. Print is not dead, but some days it takes three papers in a blue bag to keep the wind from blowing the contents away. Before I head to work at 6:30 a.m., I will have read two, saving the Journal for later.

I'm proud to present to you the new H. Marcus Radin Conference Center at Clovis Community, pictured below! This morning was the formal unveiling of the donor signage displaying the name of the new conference center after the late Fresno business leader and philanthropist. The $3 million gift to name the new center was made in honor of Mr. Radin by Jason Liao and Leslie Findley through the Radin Foundation.
