There are times when I know exactly what I'm going to write about in this column, and there are days like today when I have to really think about what I'm going to write.

So much has happened in the city of Reedley in the last few days. Some stories have been good, others have been not so good. 

I started off the weekend of April 6 with a visit to the downtown area for the city's annual Rummage Roundup. 

I was able to take some photos of vendors and as I returned to the office to upload my photos, I called and asked my daughter if she was up for watching a movie that night, she said yes. 

I figured it would be an uneventful and relatively calm weekend. 

I was wrong. 

As I got home that evening, my daughter and I were talking about her last year of high school and she was really needing help to pick out classes for her first semester at Fresno City College. 

She looked visibly frustrated at the entire "college process." I tried to explain to her that her first two years of college are geared at general education classes. She wanted to jump into her major classes right away and added that she felt like she was "wasting her time taking those general ed classes." 

I told her that attitude is the reason why she'd make a great attorney one day. She's a pre law major. But I also told her if she feels like it's not the direction she wants to go once she does begin taking law classes, she can always change it. 

In light of the recent Lori Loughlin college scandals, I wanted to be sure that my daughter is following her passion and not mine. Plus I'm sure that mine and Lori's financial situations are much different.
