The kids will vote for Disneyland every time but if you want to try something different this year try stopping at the Seven Sycamores Ranch on your way up or down the San Joaquin Valley. It’s a fun destination that will show your youngsters a little about farm life and help them understand the importance of California’s agriculture. Agri-tourism is what they call it — the blending of tourism with California’s vast farmlands and orchards to offer city folk an up-close view of how an orange, for example, gets from the tree to your dining room table.

The Nuts ace gave up just five hits Thursday but three of them were home runs in a 9-8 loss to the Visalia Rawhide. Bergman appeared to be sitting pretty up 4-1 through four innings - retiring the side in order in the bottom of the first and fourth innings - after giving up a solo home run to Visalia's Yazy Arbelo in the second.

In the 1970s, our neighbor, Hazel Castevens, told us that in the 1880s, the Wells Fargo Pony Express dropped off the mail at what today is the west end of the Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA parking lot, right near the entrance to Rancho Canyada Road. A few weeks ago, my husband, Len, and I visited the Wells Fargo & Co. Museum on Montgomery Street in San Francisco, where a historian named Marianne Babel burst our bubble. Babel is the vice president of Wells Fargo Historical Services.
