New local car shows add to enjoyable summer season

in Local Roundup

One of the many benefits of summer is its time for car shows. We’ve been blessed with a number of fine showings of late. It’s almost an “embarrassment of riches” but there’s plenty to see and do now in the vintage vehicle realm.

Agricultural water agencies refine efficiency plans

in Food/Local Roundup

Agricultural water suppliers must develop annual water budgets and drought plans that meet requirements of recently enacted legislation, and are meeting with state officials to comply with the updated law—a process that could ultimately affect water costs for California farmers and ranchers.

California Farm Bureau Federation Director of Water Resources Danny Merkley said the process stems from 2009 law, and updates passed last year, which require the state Department of Water Resources to consult with agricultural stakeholders to quantify water-use efficiency.

Car dealership owner proposes gaming

in Local Roundup

SELMA – Long-time car dealership owner Dwight Nelson has an idea he thinks will not only add an estimated 100 new jobs to Selma, but could also bring in thousands of dollars in taxes for the city’s general fund.

At the June 17 Selma City Council meeting, Nelson shared his idea to convert 4,000 square feet of banquet facilities of his Spike N’ Rail Restaurant into gaming rooms, as usage of them has declined over the years, he said.
