What Should Be Yakima’s Next Big Festival? I Have Some Great Suggestions

I've been talking with some friends about what kind of festival we would like to see next in the city of Yakima.

So far, we have a ton of music festivals, including one next month in downtown Yakima, a comic-con, a lavender harvest days event (in Selah), several wine and beer fests, and we just had Yakima's first-ever food truck fest (it was actually called a "food truck rally")...

‘King’ Felix Hernandez Just Might Be Baseball’s Unluckiest Pitcher Of All-Time

In his most recent start Sunday, Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez gave an effort that virtually every starter in the big leagues would be more than happy with. Seven shutout innings, nary a base on balls while fanning 10 and allowing a scant three hits. A start that would, and should, have garnered the M's - and their king - a victory. Just like the start before it, a six inning, one-hit effort, to christen the 2016 campaign versus Texas.

But it wasn't to be. Again. And again. And againandagainandagainandagain...

R.I.P., Patty Duke — My TV Crush

Patty Duke passed away unexpectedly today (March 29) at the age of 69. A lot of people might not recognize that name, but you might know her best as the mother of actor Sean Astin (of "Goonies" fame).

I loved Nick-At-Nite back in the early '90s as it would show older TV sitcoms from the '50s and '60s,all in their black and white splendor.

My first encounters with these shows included "The Many Loves Of Dobie Gillis" and "The Patty Duke Show," but I was most enamored with Patty Duke.

She was cute, bubbly and sassy, and because she played identical cousins there were two of her.

It wasn't until years later that I discovered that she dealt with many inner demons and later diagnosed with manic depression (now known as bipolar disorder) in 1982, long before the term became mainstream.
