FRUTA FRESCA

WOMAN LED

IMMIGRANT FAMILY FOUNDED

YOUTH HAVEN


Fruta Fresca in Kerman, California, located at 290 S Madera Ave, is more than just an ice cream shop; it's a testament to the power of determination, community, and youth engagement. Founded by an Oaxacan family, this charming establishment began as a modest endeavor, driven by a passion for quality and a dream to create something extraordinary. What makes Fruta Fresca truly unique is its evolution from a simple hobby into a thriving local institution, now under the leadership of a dynamic CEO, Yazmin Enrique.

The ice cream creations at Fruta Fresca are a nod to the vibrant and flavor-packed traditions of Michoacán, a region in Mexico renowned for its frozen treats. The result is a mouthwatering assortment of ice creams and paletas that brilliantly capture the essence of their Oaxacan heritage. Each scoop is a testament to the family's commitment to providing a taste of tradition and quality that keeps customers coming back for more.

Beyond the delectable frozen treats, what truly sets Fruta Fresca apart is its heart. This family-owned store has transformed into a beloved hangout spot for the local youth, offering a lot more than just ice cream. Their commitment to youth engagement is remarkable. They believe in giving back to the community and providing a space for fun, creativity, and social interaction.

To foster this sense of community, Fruta Fresca has hosted various events, including paint sessions. These events create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, where patrons can not only indulge in delightful ice cream but also come together to express their creativity, connect with friends, and unwind in a relaxed setting. It's a reflection of the family's commitment to nurturing the next generation and giving them a place to flourish.

Kern Mid Winter

Brush Stroke Line

by Ana Lara

The arid landscapes of Kern County, known for their vast expanses of golden hues, transformed during the winter of 2023-24. The rain arrived as a poetic symphony, a delicate melody that transformed the parched earth into a canvas of emerald greens. The dusty trails of ghost towns like Silver City, now adorned with a fresh coat of rain-kissed flora, offered a surreal juxtaposition—a reminder that even the most desolate landscapes could bloom with the touch of precipitation.

The weather, though milder compared to other parts of the country, brought a crisp chill to the air. The mountains that surrounded the ghost towns were capped with a dusting of snow, creating a picturesque tableau. The quiet solitude of these winter landscapes, punctuated by the occasional howl of the wind, added a layer of mystique to the historical sites.

As I stood amidst the ghostly echoes of Silver City, surrounded by the remnants of lives lived and abandoned, the rain, floods, and winter weather became integral chapters in the ongoing story of Kern County. It is a place where the past converges with the present, and nature's elements serve as both storyteller and sculptor, etching tales of resilience and transformation across the rugged landscapes.


8

Today, Silver City stands as a living museum, a testament to the long and colorful history of Kern Valley. Unlike an attempt to erase the passage of time, the approach adopted at Silver City is one of "arrested decay." The aim is not to recreate a pristine image but to showcase the post-gold rush era when miners moved on, leaving behind a silent testament to their endeavors.


Visitors to Silver City can step inside the original Isabella jail, where gunslinger Newt Walker found himself incarcerated in 1905. The Apalatea/Burlando House, believed to be the oldest standing structure in the Valley, now houses a saloon and country store. Throughout the property, thousands of artifacts are on display, offering a glimpse into the daily lives of those who once populated these mining outposts.


Silver City's church, rustic in its charm and reminiscent of those in Bodie, is a favorite among visitors. The property is a cinematic canvas, listed on film location scout websites and associated with renowned entities like The California Film Commission, The Los Angeles Film Commission, and The Kern County Film Commission. Since its reopening in 1990, Silver City has been featured in numerous film and video shoots, including projects by Warner Chappell Music, A & E, and The History Channel.


Beyond its cinematic allure, Silver City captures the essence and serenity of the historic mining camps in the Kern Valley. It stands not as a commercial venture but as a poignant reminder of the region's past, allowing visitors to embark on a self-guided tour enriched with the history and spirit of a bygone era. The legacy of Silver City lives on, a resurrection of Kern Valley's captivating narrative through meticulously preserved architecture and artifacts.

Echoes of Resilience:

Exploring the Immigrant History of Central California


Central California stands as a testament to the resilience and cultural richness of immigrant communities, particularly Latinos and other minorities, whose stories have woven themselves deeply into the fabric of the region's history. From the agricultural fields to the bustling city streets, the legacy of immigrants reverberates through every corner, shaping the identity of this diverse and vibrant landscape.


Steinbeck Country: A Literary Tapestry of Immigrant Narratives

At the heart of Central California's immigrant narrative lies the literary legacy of John Steinbeck, whose iconic works have immortalized the struggles and triumphs of immigrant communities in the region. Steinbeck's masterpiece, "The Grapes of Wrath," paints a vivid portrait of Dust Bowl migrants seeking refuge and opportunity in California's fertile valleys during the Great Depression. Through the Joad family's journey, Steinbeck illuminates the harsh realities faced by migrant workers while also celebrating their resilience and collective spirit.

Beyond Steinbeck, a multitude of voices have emerged, each offering a unique perspective on the immigrant experience in Central California. Writers like Gary Soto, Juan Felipe Herrera, and Reyna Grande have drawn upon their own heritage and lived experiences to craft powerful narratives that explore themes of identity, belonging, and cultural assimilation. Their literary works serve as a testament to the enduring strength and vitality of immigrant communities in the face of adversity.


Latinos form a significant and dynamic part of Central California's immigrant history, contributing to the region's cultural landscape in myriad ways. From the early Mexican settlers who established thriving communities in the 19th century to the waves of immigrants from Latin America in the 20th and 21st centuries, Latinos have played a central role in shaping the region's identity.


In the agricultural heartland of Central California, Latino farmworkers have long toiled in the fields, harvesting the fruits and vegetables that feed the nation. Their labor sustains the region's economy while also highlighting the ongoing struggles for fair wages, labor rights, and dignified working conditions.


Beyond their contributions to the agricultural sector, Latinos have left an indelible mark on Central California's cultural landscape through art, music, cuisine, and activism. Chicano artists like Judith F. Baca and José Montoya have used their creative talents to amplify the voices of marginalized communities and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the region.

On Track for Change: The Dynamic Evolution of Central California's High-Speed Rail Project


The proposed high-speed rail project, slated to span 171 miles between Merced and Bakersfield, represents a monumental investment in the region's infrastructure, with billions of dollars in state and federal funding driving its progress. The construction boom has brought with it a surge of employment opportunities, providing a lifeline to thousands of residents in a region historically plagued by economic challenges.

Yet, amidst the flurry of activity, dissent lingers. From the onset, the project has faced criticism and opposition, with concerns ranging from escalating costs to environmental impacts. Skeptics point to the project's delayed timelines and ballooning budget as evidence of mismanagement and inefficiency.


However, amidst the debate, there are undeniable benefits to be gleaned from the high-speed rail's fruition. For Central California residents, particularly those in Fresno and Bakersfield, the project represents more than just a mode of transportation—it's a gateway to opportunity. By connecting inland communities with coastal hubs, the rail line promises to bridge longstanding divides, offering residents access to jobs, education, and healthcare previously out of reach.

Moreover, the rail line's potential to alleviate traffic congestion and reduce carbon emissions presents a compelling case for its implementation. As California grapples with the dual challenges of climate change and urban sprawl, the high-speed rail offers a sustainable solution that could redefine the region's transportation landscape for generations to come.



In the midst of this transformative endeavor, local officials and residents alike are cautiously optimistic about the future. While acknowledging the project's complexities and uncertainties, they remain steadfast in their belief that the benefits outweigh the challenges. For Fresno Mayor Jerry Dyer and many others, the high-speed rail represents a game-changer—one that has the power to reshape the Central Valley's economic and social landscape for the better.

As Central California navigates the highs and lows of the high-speed rail debate, one thing remains clear: the region stands at a pivotal moment in its history, poised on the brink of transformation.


Are you eager to share your thoughts and feelings about the high-speed rail project in Central California? Whether you're a supporter, skeptic, or somewhere in between, YoSoy! Magazine wants to hear from you. Contact us today to share your perspective and be a part of the conversation shaping the future of our region. Let your voice be heard—reach out to YoSoy! and join the dialogue on this transformative project.

What is a 'Forever Chemical'? Unveiling PFAS Contamination in California Pesticides and its Danger to Agricultural Workers

Today, we're shedding light on a concerning discovery that affects not only our health but also the safety of our environment. According to recent test results released by the Center for Biological Diversity and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, some of the pesticides commonly used in California's agriculture are contaminated with what are known as PFAS "forever chemicals."


But what exactly are these "forever chemicals," and why should you be concerned? PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a group of chemicals that are highly persistent in the environment, meaning they don't break down easily. These chemicals have been linked to a range of health issues, including immune system suppression, liver damage, thyroid disease, reduced fertility, high cholesterol, obesity, and cancer.


One of the pesticides found to be contaminated with PFAS is Intrepid 2F, which is widely used in the Central Valley on crops such as almonds, grapes, peaches, and pistachios.


As farmworkers, you're on the front lines of agriculture, working closely with pesticides every day. Exposure to these chemicals puts you at risk of serious health consequences, not to mention the potential harm to our land and water resources.


But there's hope. By raising awareness about the presence of PFAS in pesticides and advocating for stricter regulations, we can work together to protect our health and environment.


If you have concerns about the impact of PFAS contamination on your health or livelihood, we encourage you to reach out to us at YoSoy! Magazine. Your voice matters, and together, we can make a difference.

¿Qué es un 'Forever Chemical'? Revelando la Contaminación de PFAS en los Pesticidas de California y su Peligro para los Trabajadores Agrícolas

Hoy, estamos arrojando luz sobre un descubrimiento preocupante que afecta no solo nuestra salud, sino también la seguridad de nuestro medio ambiente. Según los resultados recientes de pruebas publicados por el Centro para la Diversidad Biológica y los Empleados Públicos para la Responsabilidad Ambiental, algunos de los pesticidas comúnmente utilizados en la agricultura de California están contaminados con lo que se conocen como "productos químicos eternos" o PFAS.


Pero, ¿qué son exactamente estos "productos químicos eternos" y por qué debería preocuparse? Los PFAS, o sustancias per- y polifluoroalquil, son un grupo de productos químicos altamente persistentes en el medio ambiente, lo que significa que no se descomponen fácilmente. Estos productos químicos han sido vinculados a una variedad de problemas de salud, incluyendo supresión del sistema inmunológico, daño hepático, enfermedades de la tiroides, reducción de la fertilidad, colesterol alto, obesidad y cáncer.


Uno de los pesticidas que se encontró contaminado con PFAS es Intrepid 2F, que se utiliza ampliamente en el Valle Central en cultivos como almendras, uvas, duraznos y pistachos.


Como trabajadores agrícolas, están en primera línea de la agricultura, trabajando estrechamente con pesticidas todos los días. La exposición a estos productos químicos los pone en riesgo de graves consecuencias para la salud, además del posible daño a nuestros recursos de tierra y agua.


Pero hay esperanza. Al aumentar la conciencia sobre la presencia de PFAS en los pesticidas y abogar por regulaciones más estrictas, podemos trabajar juntos para proteger nuestra salud y nuestro medio ambiente.


Si tiene preocupaciones sobre el impacto de la contaminación por PFAS en su salud o sustento, lo alentamos a que se comunique con nosotros en YoSoy! Magazine. Su voz es importante, y juntos, podemos marcar la diferencia.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2024

The First Black Settlement

Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park

Nestled within the sun-drenched landscapes of Central California lies the historic town of Allensworth, a beacon of hope and empowerment for generations of African Americans. Founded in 1908 by Colonel Allen Allensworth, this remarkable settlement stands as a testament to the resilience and vision of California's Black pioneers.


Located in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, Allensworth emerged as a thriving community amidst the vast expanses of farmland and orchards. It was here that Colonel Allensworth and his fellow settlers, fueled by a shared dream of self-determination, transformed the arid landscape into a vibrant town.


Allensworth quickly became a magnet for Black families seeking refuge from the harsh realities of racism and discrimination. Here, they found not only shelter but a sanctuary of opportunity and possibility. Schools were established, businesses flourished, and a sense of community spirit permeated the air.

16

Colonel Allensworth envisioned a community where Black families could thrive independently, free from the constraints of racism and discrimination. With determination and ingenuity, he and his fellow settlers transformed a patch of barren land in the San Joaquin Valley into a thriving town, complete with schools, businesses, and churches.


Allensworth became a beacon of hope for Black Americans across the country, drawing settlers from far and wide seeking a better life. Here, amidst the dusty fields and swaying palm trees, they found not just shelter, but a sense of belonging and purpose. They built homes, cultivated crops, and established a vibrant community that flourished against all odds.


But Allensworth's legacy extends beyond its physical boundaries. It symbolizes the resilience and spirit of Black pioneers who dared to dream of a brighter future in the face of adversity. It stands as a testament to the power of perseverance and collective action in the pursuit of equality and justice.


Today, Allensworth remains a living testament to the enduring legacy of its founders. Visitors can explore its historic buildings, stroll through its streets, and learn about the remarkable individuals who built this town from the ground up. It serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving and celebrating Black history, ensuring that future generations will continue to be inspired by the remarkable story of Colonel Allensworth and his vision of hope and empowerment.
