Meet the fashion experts Tiffany Wainwright and Maryland Chaney. Tiffany Wainwright and Marland Chanel are incredibly influential and have an itch for fashion. The description of Tiffany Wainwright and Maryland Chaney is in words called flamboyant and Creativity. Tiffany Wainwright and Maryland Chaney are forced to be racketing, having the ins and outs of fashion knowledge. Meet the expert de la mode, Tiffany Wainwright, and Maryland Chaney.

 

Tiffany Wright. Tell us a little bit about yourself so everyone can know who you are and a little bit about your background.

Sure. I've been teaching here, and this was my 14-year impressive. I was here as an adjunct for many years. We never had a full-time faculty in fashion. And we pushed for it for 10 years and finally made it through. This is going on my fourth year as a full-time faculty member for fashion which is enormous for our department since we haven't had anyone full-time. And we currently have five other adjuncts. We've expanded the program three times what it used to be, always running on adjuncts. We have lots of courses. We teach a lot of dual enrollment. And now, in several different high school learning classes, which is exciting. When I was in high school, we had a fashion at most high schools because I grew up here. I started teaching here. There wasn't all the fashion that was gone, they took away all the home neck classes, and so we're starting to bring that back with our dual enrollment. It's been stimulating for me, but also to get students, you know, excited in high school and then to come here to CLS and continue and take our program and get our certificate. I grew up here and graduated from Redwood high school. I took fashion at Redwood my junior year and realized, Yeah, that's what I want to do. And my senior year, I came to see and took a fashion illustration class from Deb Campbell and realized, okay, I want to go into merchandising. I applied to Cal State Long Beach, got my degree there, and worked in the industry.
I worked for a limited corporation for several years. And then later got married and returned to valley to have my family and I have four children. And I got hired here, like I said, about 14 years ago to teach fashion and just really concentrate on growing the program. I rewrote all the classes so that it mirrors Cal State Long Beach, so almost all of our courses are CSU transferable, so if those students move on to a four-year program, these classes will move on with excellent what was the main point of getting yourself into this kind of industry of fashion. Well, I just fell in love with it when I took it in high school, and I just knew that I was always on the creative side. I love clothing. I loved putting outfits together. And so once I took the class in high school and then again took it at CLS, I knew that was the path I wanted to go and then got into Cal State Long Beach. They had a fantastic program. I had some great internships, just an avenue out of college in the personal shopping area at Saks Fifth Avenue at Costa Mesa. And that was fun, helped to put on fashion shows for them. I also worked for a small baby store. I got to go to the market and buy, so I got my hands on buying. That was a fun experience, and then I started working for the limited Corporation. For several years I worked in California and the Bay Area, and I worked all. Very few are all I was all overall.

 

Do you have a design or anything? Did you want to do a show?

 

I didn't do the design. Basically, you usually go into the design aspect, which is the sewing drawing making or the business-marketing steps, like designing like the process. Well, that would probably be best if I could have one of my teachers in here could talk to you about that because she's done that. I did more of the business side, so that is different. There are two pathways, usually, design or merchandising, so my background is in merchandising.


What is your advice for anyone that wants to go into the field of fashion?

 

Take a few classes because you never know until you start taking classes, and then do as many internships as possible and different internships because I worked for a mom-and-pop children's store in California. I got to do everything there because my husband and wife owned it. They didn't have any fashion background, so I got to do buying with them. I got to do merchandising. I got to, you know, get the retail product and the apparel and price it because that's a whole other area. Yeah, learning how to price the merchandise. You know what you'll put it on sale for and decide what you'll make from that markup. I did all the visual merchandising for the store, so I got to do every aspect when working for a small store. There are only a few of you, so you'd have to have many hats. And then when I worked for Saks Fifth Avenue, a giant retail department store with very different types of retail. You have very high-end clothing and very high-end customers. It is different for me from living in valley, where we don't have a giant department store like that. I worked with personal shopping, and we had the most elite customers coming in. We swept them back into this closed room that was this beautiful individual dressing room. We would bring them lunch and cater to every knee they might have.
We choose to clothe, they try it on, and we'd be there just servicing them one-on-one, which was incredible. And then, I also got to help put on fashion shows to highlight different designers in their stores. Choosing models again is headshots, you know, being there for the actual event, which is the hustle and bustle all day long. It's amusing because it's enjoyable, lots of work, but fun to put on a fashion show. And then I also helped with a little bit of the marketing for that store. So that was, you know, also exciting to see the different types of marketing ads that they put in before social media. I'm sure, paper.
A lot of people are not going to understand that they want to see that. And then I started working for the limited because of that time in the 1990s, that was like one of the biggest retail stores they owned. Victoria's Secret, Lane Bryant Lerner Express Bath, and Body Cacique was colossal company. Chose that company to work for because of, you know, the range they had, and I knew that if I didn't like the limited or didn't look at that category, I could move into different areas. I managed those stores in California for several years. The designers out there who is the most important. Oh, I can't pick one. That's like picking a child. There are so many, and they all are so different. And I mean, I see it as walking into an art gallery. How would you pick one favorite you can because they're there. They all are different and unique, and enjoyable. And they all, you know, speak something different. Enjoy looking at all the different, old, and new designers. Because again, to me, it's art. I just love to see, you know, what they produce and how they produce it and kind of the flair of that person.

 

For future reference, for example, want to own a clothing store?
What would you say to them?

 

Again, it goes back to those internships, like getting training or working for someone. Find a successful person running a business you would like yours to look like and work for them. Because that's that is your best way. Why reinvent the wheel. Find someone that successful that you can learn under. You don't have to make those same mistakes that maybe they made. They'll teach you how to do it the right way. And you always have someone you can look at and decide, you know, what, what area you want to go into because you're, you know, your work, you've already worked for them, and you've already seen kind of their structure. I think that would be the best thing. Also, it would work for several companies that may be the ones you want. And then that would give you the experience to open your own.

Maryland Chaney, tell us a little about yourself and how you entered the fashion industry.

 I went through all the sewing classes I could take in high school and then went to college and studied fashion design at Washington State University. Then took another course of study, which led to a job in the garment industry. Working for a sportswear manufacturer as an assistant designer way assistant to the assistant, I worked there for about six or seven years. Through various positions, I worked to make my way up to children's wear designer.

 

Do you have a favorite or memorable moment when you were in doing any fashion designs

on a company?

 

I worked for a sportswear manufacturer, so they did a lot of activewear and beach-type wear and things like that. And when my favorite part of the job was that we got to pick colors every season that we would go into the line. Still, we also got to design textiles, so we got to design stripes, and we would sit and cut the fabric into little strips and put them on paste-up paper. Create stripes that would go to the manufacturers, so we can design stripes in our fashion-forward colors and have a monk work together as a collection. 

 

When you have a moment when you can't think of an idea, what do you do to get creative?

 

Well, my career went from the fashion industry to the film industry. I've always been a film lover. So for me, I look to history. I look to historical costumes and periods that inspire me, like I love the 40s. I love the 20s, for me to be able to look at historical fashion period historical costumes as well as the art during those periods and how it all tied together. 

 

The history that you have. Do you have a favorite of your own? 

 

My wedding dress. Of course, yeah. My wedding. Dress. Yes. Yeah, because I'm a builder. I make patterns, and I build things. Yes. Can you describe what it looked like? Oh, it was so 1990, like it was super slim mermaid style, with a skirt. A 20-foot-long train came off in the back and had silk foreplay. It had these drapey sleeves and a natural low back. But the fabric was quite simple, it had just simple lace with some beads on it, but it was a mashup of all my favorite things. But it was very 90's.

 

Did it take you long to design your wedding dress? 

 

Not really. I had the bridesmaid dresses the day before the wedding. I made my dress, the bridesmaids, my husband's shirt, and Spats for him, and homemade Yeah, I did the whole thing.

 

What got you all to migrate? 

 

I went from the fashion industry to specialty costumes and building superheroes. Yeah, animals, dinosaurs, bears. Iron man etc. I was trying to figure out a way to kind of find something that was a little calmer. Something a little bit more than I can give back and teach kids that because when I got started in the film industry. I hope to bring something a little different with my entertainment industry background and help show that there are so many choices.

 

Who is your influencer? Who was your most motivator to continue with fashion?

 

That's a hard one. It was so long ago. I have to say one of my favorite designers back when I was Issei Miyake, and he's a Japanese designer. And he did amazing things which went more along the costume route. He did high fashion, but everything was very draping and intricate, and all his patterns were terrific. And I love complicated pattern making and designs. Yeah, and very, very, very Japanese. And sensibility where it was very, there was a lot of origami and a lot of draping and folding and fascinating pattern work and his, his blades are—he and Kenzo. And there were several influential European designers at the time. I could go on Terry McClure and Sean Volga TA, but there were many exciting design perspectives. Wow.

 

With these moods, can you get more in detail on these boards?

 

Well, a mood board is just. It takes the interested in color and style, and they like of your design aesthetic. It's understanding elements of mine and form and color and, you know, the essential aspects of design taking that and creating a board that has a cohesive feeling. And so that when you look at it, you can see the designer's aesthetic or sensibility from it. Oh, as I said, they're not all designers, but they can all put down what they like.

 

What advice would you give to who want to take the fields that you have?

 

Well, I would say, to find a destination as far as you know, there are places where you can do fashion successfully. There's a lot more now with online companies and things like that. But you need to find a place and focus on a particular specialty if you will, so don't try to do it all. You know if there's one thing you can focus on, bridal wear, menswear, sportswear, or whatever to find. Take as much information as possible, whether in technical classes or learning the basics of pattern making, draping, and sewing, because many designers don't know that. They're not nearly the successful ones who know how things are put together. Even learning the nuts and bolts, I think, is essential.

Art gallery shows various artworks, and in the art exhibit, many people would experience art forms coming to life. The art madness is never an arid moment, but each Artist comes with a unique art display from around the world to the art gallery. The art gallery teaches aspects of Art education and appreciation. The art gallery is never the same artist and changes each time. The gallery has a wide range of cultures, surrealism, expressionism, realism, pop culture, etc.

 

Furthermore, Amie Rangle is an educated and expert artist who shows others the world of creativity. What inspired Amie Rangle was an art class that made her bring out their creativity as an artist. The Art course teacher is why Amie Rangel was influenced to move her career as an Art major. Amie Rangel has interesting visional aspects with hands-on to create stories.

 

On the contrary, at the art gallery, an artist Bechrun LoMile set up spoke about the Art he had created. The artist's in-depth meaning behind "German spy” was influenced by a friend group that is a German artist who has conspiracies about the German spy. The government would go through phones and personal emails and spy on people. Someone leaks information about the spying on german secrets. The artist wanted to crest something about a German spy but twisted it into an American spy. Behind the Art is about the  "Truth and what is off the side of truth.” (LoMile) Bechrun LoMile also stated, “Saying something that might sound wrong. Even in the Political approach, contestant  truth."(LoMile) 

 

Meanwhile, once walking down the art gallery, hidden forms would surprise anyone when looking closer at the sneaky small and enormous scales from LoMile artwork. Widerige in objects such as 4-D Art displays monetary hues shaded browns on all the clusters of woods. The 4-D form of stairs is tiled to a 60-degree angle while the door next is laid down flat. A 3-D object of small and large forms displayed different surrealistic approaches that are spaced out. In print 3-D, objects contain colorful hues, Orangie, slivers, and blacks with images such as triggers, a man, and volumes frames. So Image yourself walking up the stairs; it would give a dark, surrealistic feel.

 

 What is behind creative thinking is Bechrun LoMile thought about the exchange program. For example, the art project collected American secrets in exchange for Germany, which is the installation of 4-D red LD lights with lettering called the Truth booth. Each message display is what an individual express under the truth booth. Each person's truth booth would be mixed up and combined for the installations. Furthermore, the installation display spaces out all over the madness. 

 

            The gallery doesn't stay still because all artists' individuality is displayed in their works, like Bachrun LoMele. Appreciate the American Spy that brings out the wonders by looking at art. The truth and massage aren't far off lies when further understanding Bachrun LoMele's approach. Appreciate Bechrun LoMele’s dark message glooms the stage at the art gallery. The art gallery showcases Bachrun LoMele's artwork for anyone who enjoys the art.  

 

 

 

 


Brewster: Jeffrey, please tell everyone about yourself?

 

Jeffrey: My name is Jeffrey, I'm the creative consultant.

Our head office is in Jacksonville Fl, I work at the creative office in California

I'm a software engineer by profession. Honestly, I was not the brightest kid.

I always had a spark for creative doings. I completed my degree and never looked back went straight to the art school and here I'm after good 10 years working as a creative consultant.

I enjoy my work I love it and it keeps me going.

Coming to animation, I was into animation from the day I saw Mickey mouse on the screen.

I was amazed at how can he move.

How is he talking? and all the magical stuff just flying around on the screen.

I started learning and observing every part of the animation.

During my time in the art school, I was more focused on animation than on live drawing, fundamentals of figure drawing and etc.

I realized later that I needed to study all the rest of the fundamentals in order to animate something.

I'm grateful to all the people who have helped me, their constructive feedback and consideration have made me the great artist and consultant that I'm today.

Speaking of projects, I have worked with Cartoon Network, WHO, Hubco, Warner brothers, and many more amazing organizations.

I have a one of my works a conversion of 2D to 3D that provides a lot of information on how different styles of animation can affect an audience

 Work Jeffrey has done:

 

 

 


Brewster: Tell us a little history Donnie, of becoming an officer.

Charles: Sure. When to graduated from high school in 1991, many high schools came to see us as students. Working as a student worker for the police department in 1999 and worked here for a few years. In 2001, join the police academy, then in July of that year, hired as a police officer and was a police officer for three years here, then promoted to sergeant and was a sergeant here for 17 years.

Brewster: So what was precisely a sergeant?

Charles: The sergeant in law enforcement sergeant is the supervisor. The police officers, and then have the sergeant. We oversee the police officers. A lower level of management for about 17 years: January, promoted to Chief, a total of over 21 years with much experience. One moment wants to pursue a law enforcement officer chief.

On the contrary, when growing up, looking up to police officers as kind then. Police officers were like role models, and there was respect for public safety, helping others, Etc. So that kind of always just stuck. Played baseball at the time—High School, which was dreamed of at the time to pursue. Moreover, law enforcement was more realistic at the time because of being out of high school. Furthermore, a job that led the way to becoming an officer.

Brewster: So what do you do?

Charles: The Chief’s role changed slightly over the last 17 years. Nevertheless, still in uniform. Enforce, help out, and help out campus officers. There are times when we have only seven of us for all three campuses. So sometimes covering a shift and handling stuff like that. So that has not changed much. The main things that have changed are just as a manager now a lot more responsibilities. The administration goes for running the overall department and ensuring that the stuff required by the state is done. And then just some ancillary items and duties with part of the Behavior Intervention Team. Have little to do with law enforcement, but that is an extra duty—one of the safety officers on campus. So if a safety issue, danger, or something like that usually comes up, we have worked with facilities to resolve that. So that’s outside the law enforcement scope, but still in the whole public safety thing.

Brewster: Do those stars mean the thing on the uniforms?

Charles: So these are different rings in law enforcement, with other ranks. An officer that does not have any ranks or anything like that. There is usually just a police officer, deputy sergeant, or sergeant with three stripes on their shoulders. And then the four stars are traditionally designated for the police chief or sheriff.

We have police officers, sergeants, and chiefs. Some departments have lieutenant captains; they would have different insignia kinds of military bases. It is kind of the same, same style as the military.

Brewster: Have you had experiences on campus with an incident before?

Charles: We have often dealt with transients because we are an open campus; anybody can come on campus. So transients, we have had to fight with transients. We have had stolen vehicles in progress and caught someone trying to steal a vehicle or break into a building. The vehicle, probably the most recent one, was, honestly, in 2018. Also, an individual who has been arrested several times previously started breaking into several buildings in the middle of the night. Probably seven or a different instance of a broken window, and he comes back at night or two nights later. Thus, we caught him in the act, got it, and arrested him.
Moreover, it helped the college decide to put cameras on campus because prior. It is a great tool that we use almost daily. When the student comes out, and their vehicle gets hit, we can pull up cameras and get licensed with numbers. Alternatively, we can see who is on campus in the middle of the night.

Brewster: If a student a psychotic or has a background, do officers on campus monitor them?

Charles: The students coming here do not have any background. Only have been brought to our attention. However, the officers on campus have tools available. Any student can go online to report about a student for student concerns. Anybody can fill those out. What that does goes to the Behavior Intervention Team, which is part. A student dealing with homelessness or mental health gets brought up to us. If it is food and shelter, there are resources we can provide them, or if it is mental health, we can refer them to the health center. Also, all of the officers are trained in crisis intervention. All officers have 40-hour training classes, and just how to deal with people in crisis or mental health and stuff like that.


F a n c I s c o Alonso

Brewster: A brief bio of your upbringing?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: I'm an immigrant. My parents immigrated from Mexico when I was like two years old. And we grew up in the valley working family, typical immigrants in this area. I went to school here in the United States my whole life.

Brewster: Is there a reason why better life you were always interested in the art aspect?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: Yeah, growing up, my dad encouraged us to make drawings. When we were young, as a way to communicate with us because he was always at work, whenever he would come home, he would look at our drawings. I have always been into art.

Brewster: What kind of art are you most interested in or like to do?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: So, my emphasis is going to be printmaking. A lot of my training is in printmaking.

Brewster: Like the one that China?

F a n c I s c o Alonso:  I mean, there's Japanese printmaking that's old and traditional. The Europeans also did a lot of printmaking 500 years ago. For example, Albert Dewar and many of the old masters did a lot of printmaking, and then newer contemporary German expressionists. Still, then, for me, I'm closer attached to the Mexican printmaking, hopefully, well, the Wasaga Yeah, Mexico still has a vibrant history to this day. All the kind of it, you see the skeletons that are popular for an exam, then there is a printmaker, well, that was, and he is the one that did a lot of the newspapers with those images. And that's what made it famous.

 Brewster: Can you specify your educational background and your experience in college?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: Background I transferred to the Sonoma State University of North, and then after that, I went to grad school in Michigan at a school called Cranbrook Academy of Art. That was more of a private school. I mean, my background was excellent. I had a good printmaker. Canvas and enlisting, who was my master with his master, was another guy named Gazdecki. So, it was positive.

Brewster: Do you always want to pursue this career that you are doing right now as a teacher? Artist?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: Yeah, I was when I was 18. I took my first drawing class at the college level. And at that point, I decided I wanted to go to college.

Brewster: How long have you been here?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: I started in 2013. Nine years minus one when I left.

Brewster: Oh, where are you suggesting Artists of the Year? Can you speak about being

artists of the year?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: Yeah, I just got nominated. I don't know how that happens. Actually. They just invited me to a meeting with an announcement about rewarding the artist of the year. I believe it's because of all the work I do here as an Artiest. I work for my Media Center at Arts Consortium. Also, run a gallery called the Open Gallery. And we're a little bit hidden. But yeah, it's appreciated to hear or see that other people are watching and enjoying the work I'm putting in, which is nice. I mean, it's nice to be recognized. Recognition.

Brewster: What is your favorite thing about working as an artist favorite?

If there were one thing, you would enjoy more than the other in your job?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: As far as teaching is my favorite part of the job. Teaching is my favorite. If I wasn't teaching by everything else, I don't mind.

 Brewster: Did you receive anything?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: Yeah, they gave me a couple of booze at the taste of Art event here in downtown Visalia.

Brewster: What is another thing about you that other people don't know?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: They don't know. I think everything that I mean being an artist, I think everything that I do aligns with being an artist. So even when I'm cooking visually, the food has to look a certain way for it to appeal to the person that's going to eat it. I think probably something people do not realize, for example, if I work on a car, work on a bicycle, or work on something. I always think of it as art. My garden is the same way. All the things I had managed were too visual as an Arist aspect.

Brewster: How did you get into the event Taste Of Art?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: I've been doing it for several years now. The first time we did it, we got invited by a man named Kevin Bowman, who used to be the permitting instructor here. And he invited frameworks to go out and print with the steamroller. The lumberyard before the arts consortium took over the steamroller project. So that's how we got introduced through the club. Through the works of art presented to support the community.

Brewster: Is it just you're the club itself gets together, and they print live for everybody?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: So, the students in the class build carbon blocks, and then they take them out to the street and create them for people's lives. We'll take one of our people out. That's how I got I got introduced. I got invited to that through the art club.

Brewster: And then, for the taste of art do you do for the event?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: Yeah, my work. I'll have my work out there, which is, you know, carvings paintings. I did like a sticker pack this time around greeting cards. Anything that I can print, or print based a lot of that stuff I'll do, that's my word. And then we also did the steamroller this year, where we printed the giant blocks using a steamroller. And then Print Works did their usual to live for people.

Brewster: See if there's anything else I've missed here. Is there any advice you like for future artists?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: Yeah, I mean, I think that anybody thinking about doing it must understand that it is a lot of work. But it is a lot of fun. The end of the day before you realize I do not want to do this. It's too much work. Also, consider that any other job will be a lot of work. So at least, in this case, we're doing what we enjoy doing. And you sort of has to do it. There's going to be a lot of pressure from many people. Your parents can be your friends. It could be anybody that has different values than you. You will not make money doing that, or that's not a real job or those things. I think people have to find out what they want to do. Exploring, you know, really explore it, really take some classes. Maybe you don't like doing it, you know, maybe it's tried painting, and you realize painting is awful. I don't like doing it. Then go find what you like because I found out I hated an artist. I do not want ever so to find what you like to do and then but at least at the end of the day, you will be happier with yourself who might not be, you know, super wealthy, but most jobs are going to make you super wealthy. So, if money is what you're after, then go find a job that makes a lot of money. But you can make a living as an artist.

Brewster: As I'm going back to your upbringing. When you were younger, were your parents also an artist, or did you just imagine it picked it up?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: My mom used to draw when we were younger. My dad did it because he was always working and didn't really have an education.  He dropped out of elementary school. My mom was more and more of an artist. But she was a stay-at-home mom, so she just took care of us. I had two brothers because we had two brothers. We were always a little competitive. Somebody did something walking draw two, so we always tried to draw each other that way. I enjoy it. If you have competition here, you do not have to think of it. You do not have to consider it a sport or compete with somebody else.

Nevertheless, it's nice to have a little bit of competition so that you can improve yourself at this time. So, I enjoy that aspect of making art, especially in the studio. We have 20 people working at the time because we have to share the equipment. Somebody makes an awesome for a year like I will make a better part of you know, even though it does not matter because the prints we are making are completely off, like not even related to each other. However, do you see a technique, or do I want to get good at that technique. You just improve yourself in that way. So yeah, I think it is really helpful to have that, even though some people do not like to be competitive or to be competitive.

Brewster: Is Art the best artwork you have?

F a n c I s c o Alonso: No, I do not. I was thinking about that just yesterday about my work and my body of work and making decisions. I had conversations earlier when I was walking in the hallway about all the old stuff that I needed, the stuff I am making now. How excited about moving forward with the next projects that I will be doing because we just finished this event. So, I feel like I have breathing room, and I will make the best shit I have ever made, and I do not know what that is yet.

Nevertheless, I was thinking about all the old stuff and how I can incorporate it all together now. Because I have this sort of vocabulary that I have built up over time over the years, I can bring in old images and bring in new images and combine them. Who knows if it will be terrible or good, but no, I do not think there is. I think that every piece that you make serves a purpose, leading to the next one. While you might not like these pieces now, I learned something from them. They are as important as the stuff I am using today.


The Tulare country Farm Bureau has membership organizations


The pumpkin project starts in the summer, and it is a combination of students that have volunteered to do the project and then members of the clubs. Students will come in to plant the seeds and prepare the soil. There is an irrigation system, called micro-irrigation, which uses very little water to grow the plants that is used after the planting. Students do the fertilization, pest control, and management of the vines because pumpkins start growing fast.

 

The harvested pumpkins were, yay, big. Five feet wide. Several 100 pounds. The biggest one this year was four feet in size. A few giant pumpkins have been harvested but are not as big yet. There is a diversity of varieties out in the area, and that is to bring different colors, different shapes, and different sizes. Some pumpkins were harvested during the first harvest in the horticulture unit. 

 

The most amount of pumpkins harvested at a time from the field was 2,000 pumpkins. Two massive ones, the large ones. Find a vine, the little ones. We call those minis, and there are different varieties, the whites, the stripes, the yellows, the orange, where we recall the typical Halloween color to multiple colors. 

 

The facility is enormous. The field that built the area is about an acre, the size of a football field. Each plant was grown every three feet within the row. Moreover, it could also be planted a foot wide, so feet between one row and the next, we have planted 15 feet wide. This year pumpkins are roughly 15 feet apart. Nevertheless, it is the role that meanings are planted every three feet, leaving two plants per month. Every setup plan is called a mouth. Two plants per mount.  Three feet, three feet tall. Have the medium size ones there. There are lots of varieties of medium size like the Connecticut field is probably the classic one. Those are the oranges about that size. Looking at about eight to 10 inches in diameter. Moreover, that is because kids liked those. After all, Pumpkins are not that heavy. Pumpkins can be carved, painted on, then have the larger was the classic jack-o-lantern, which is orange. And then, within that same size, have red, green, and white. White varieties, like Casper, Casper, a wide variety, have the larger ones and the Giants. A giant, several remote types developed here. At CEOs with the propagation class. 

 

On the other hand, the grower's students learn how to prepare the soil. Knowledgeable about handling the seed, managing pests, and diseases, managing water, scheduling the growing cycle, and hunting. Students would also learn how to keep those plants, the pumpkins, after harvest—and then how to clear the field and prepare for the next planting. For the students that do not get involved in the planting or the care. Students can help with harvesting. Moreover, Mr. Fernando (Tulare teacher) has a sign-up sheet for different activities of harvesting students—a few 100 to take out on the field after one hour. For the students that are not interested in harvesting, or it is not that they are not interested. They are so busy that they cannot help harvest, but they come in and help with the sales.  Preparing those pumpkins for sale and learning how to price them learn the business side because every Pumpkin will be different in price. The size of the Pumpkin and the color of the Pumpkin change the price of that Pumpkin.

 

Most of the pumpkins on sale here will be for the harvest fest activity—Hoste by the Ag division, umbrella clubs, and the division. Under Ag canceled, have different smaller clubs, plant science, horticulture, ag mechanics, ag business, equine, animal science, and various clubs. Every club is going to have an activity at the event. The clubs will be selling the pumpkins so that day, the public can come in and buy one or a mold. Some will be available for children to do an activity, the kids will go in and design something, and for the Pumpkin, they will use color markers. Oh, White Water water-based markers. That way, they can go home and do the clean-up.

 

Nevertheless, they can sit beside paint and then take that home. The rest of the pumpkins are sold. Fewer pumpkins than the buyers, which is good. Whatever is left will be taken, or pumpkins have been sold to a buyer doing another activity with kids. The community buys whatever has gone, and the pumpkin will give it to the community's kids. The kids in the community are going to get a free pumpkin.

 

The pumpkin patch will be open to the public on the 27th of October. The public will be available from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the animal science to know where the Animal Science Complex is specified. The parking lot is right in front. Just take that road to the back of the COS Tulare. Everyone would see the pumpkin field on the right side. Also, see the small animal hospital and then see it; everything else is animal science. A massive pavilion on the back, go through the gate, and many activities will be inside the pavilion. The pumpkin patch will move from outside to inside. 


Students are setting up starting next week. And then there will be students set up once a week until that day. There are going to be all clubs that will have an activity. The teacher Mr. Fernando, the advisor for the Ornamental Horticulture club, will be there with the students for the event.


Established in 1964, Kings SPCA seeks to provide a safe haven for abused, abandoned, medically ill/injured, and surrendered animals for as long as needed until they find a loving forever family; to foster community awareness as to the importance of spaying/neutering their domestic pets, and to increase community awareness of responsible pet ownership.SPCA typically pulls animals from high-kill shelters in Fresno to save animals from being unnecessarily euthanized. Now that SPCA is running at total capacity and houses as many as 25 animals at a time.

 

SPCA is always in need of volunteers in the form of:

Dog Walking

Cleaning

Laundry

Socializing with the animals

ETC.

 

The pictures are from the SPCA rescue animals who were treated poorly. Animals such as Greta had trauma from being neglected. SPCA found Greta in a cage in a disturbing living condition. Because of the malevolent environment, Great suffers a bad experience. Greta must overcome being in a malevolence and move into a foster home. SPCA trained Greta to be an average dog again while being faster care. Greta is an example of many SPCA rescue animals who lived in the malevolence and took time to recover from the experience.

Russel Meckith has taught for nine years at the COS Tulare campus as an ag teacher. Russel Meckith's class was on the site cleaning by scoping, watering, and feeding the animals. One student named Eric Zacharias worked on the campus in Russel Mechith's and has also been interviewed about Eric Zacharias Ag's career path. 

 

Brewster: How many animals are on the campus? 

 

Mckeith: We have 25 to 30 breeding sheep weighing about 25 horses and 10 for breeding. Then about 15 Those are calf but like breathing wise, and then that is there. Those could be the calves that they had that were classes. Some classes work with the cows, but we breed many of our own.

 

Brewster: How does the campus dairy work?

 

Meckeith: The dairy on the west side of the school is being used right now. A dairyman leases it out from the school property. It is a heifer lock. The dairyman brings heifers, and they get bred close to calving and taken back.

However, the students work with the animals in class to get them pretty tame. Moreover, let us say one of the animals are sick. Our students, teacher, or Dr. Bender have protocols to treat the recording with our lifestyle. Also, the veterinarians on here and the students give a hand in helping. 

 

Brewster: Can you tell us the history of the campus? 

 

Meckeith: Originally the ankylosis. Now the V Tech campus, but this campus opened in 2013 and 2000. They opened this campus because V Tech was getting old. Transfer to the Tulare campus, where has many more acres. The school site can expand our offerings. Today, more than the whole rooms are about 45 acres of irrigated pasture—agricultural programs here by moving out here. Previously, the farmland was out on the corner of Linwood and walnut.

 

Brewster: Are Ag students would be taking a field trip?

 

Russel Meckeith: Yeah, the Ag division has a competitive class offering livestock show teams. The Ag class is going to the Porterville collegiate biotech show in October. Students are in the livestock club, shop club, and Ag Council. Furthermore, several other clubs and horses are on the Tulare college campus, with three of us in science here on Cooper, Meckeith, and Dr. Bane. 



Brewster: How long has Eric Zacharias been a student? How does Eric like it so far, working with the animals?

 Eric: Luckily, I found what career to do before starting college. Automatically able to join to do in the future.

Brewster: Why this career? 

Eric: I want to become a veterinarian, so I thought, why not try to work at the Lifebook unit? When someone mentioned that there were applications and immediately looked at the excellent application. Ask a question such as how the schedule is wise. Everything would fit into life, work, and other schedules to get as much experience with livestock as I can to prepare for the future.

Brewster: What exactly are you doing with the animals here?

Eric: I am a volunteer and carry over there, sir, herdsman, so as volunteers. Feed the animals. Students clean up after the animals at COS. The animals some of these are pregnant, so they also allow us to work with processing them. The cows over there just recently had their calves, and students got to help with the delivery process, taking care and the early stages. A student also tags the animals to know which animals. The process of what goes into keeping track of and managing animals

Brewster: Any name for the animals?

Eric: I had heard that the animals do have names. I have not gotten the chance to yet because I am new. So far, that little male Harami name Rambo.
