    “John Euless, namesake of Fresno City College’s Euless Park… a 1922 newspaper article identified (Euless) as a leader of the Ku Klux Klan in Fresno,” Warszawski wrote in the editorial. “Reading that, my eyeballs nearly popped out of their sockets. Fresno City’s baseball facility, and former home to minor-league baseball from the early 1940s to the late 1980s, is named for a KKK leader?” Warszawski continued that he found a newspaper from 1922 that included a list of Klansmen’s names—including Euless—which was “seized by police during a raid… and released to the media by authority of the Fresno County district...

    FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Two months after the start of the Israel-Hamas war, hundreds gathered at Eaton Plaza in downtown Fresno on Friday afternoon to raise the Palestinian flag. Hundreds gathered to watch the flag raised at Unity Park as their national anthem played. "It represents the triumph of our collective efforts to amplify our voice and shed light on the plight of our brothers and sisters back home," said a local Palestinian-American. "Today we send a message to the world: the Palestinian people will not be silenced."

    Reedley is a small city in California’s San Joaquin Valley, just east of Fresno. But a troubling discovery there in early March has recently come to light — and raises a number of questions. It began with a garden hose attached illegally to a warehouse near the center of town. The building was supposed to be vacant. When code enforcement officers from the city went to investigate, they discovered that it was in use and observed several code violations. “It was pretty clear right off the bat that something was going on we didn’t have a business license for,” Reedley...

    An investigation into a Reedley warehouse uncovered a large-scale illegal medical lab complete with bioengineered mice, infectious agents, nearly 30 refrigerators and freezers some of which were non-operational, incubators, and more leaving officials shocked and the public worried. Local, state, and federal agencies are all involved and what prompted this investigation was a simple garden hose that was illegally attached and coming out of a wall in the back of the building. It was inside an ordinary warehouse located on “I” and Ninth Streets in the City of Reedley that a disturbing and shocking discovery was made back in April....

    On March 3, an illegal bio lab was discovered in a believed-to-be vacant building in Reedley, California in Fresno County. City code enforcement stumbled upon the building in December 2022 when they discovered a garden hose running up into the building through a hole in the wall. In March, they obtained a warrant to inspect the property, and in April, the Fresno County Department of Public Health ordered an inspection of the facility. Investigators inspected the building that contained the lab in July and found a room used to make COVID-19 tests and pregnancy tests. They also found over 35...

    The man who helped his roommate skip town after killing two people at a Clovis bar is now officially serving a jail sentence. The victims' families talked about that pain in court Thursday, and also about the hatred they feel towards the shooter and the man they say is just as much to blame. Savannah Gonzalez didn't pull any verbal punches when she talked about Anthony Guzman. "I can't even express the hate we feel towards you," she said. "To say we hate you is actually an understatement." Her brother-in-law was 21-year-old Merehildo Luna. Police say Eddie Cordero gunned down...

    He says he was just headed to Walgreens. But the expired registration on his car tag meant he could be pulled over. So there he is, sitting on the cold curb at night, cuffed by the Fresno County sheriff's deputies. Yes, the man tells CNN, he'd avoided getting a new registration, not wanting to spend the money. So now the 28-year-old is looking at a ticket on top of the registration and a late fee. Nothing comes cheap and easy for him -- except for methamphetamine. That's the lesson he says he got at the age of 13, when his...

    The Fresno Nightcrawler — often described as walking, ghostly pants — is known far beyond California's central San Joaquin Valley. It's become a darling of the cryptids — creatures typically described as mythological in nature, whose existence are widely considered unproven. "It's up there with Chupacabra, the Mothman and Bigfoot," said Michael Banti, founder of Weird Fresno, about the Fresno Nightcrawler's popularity. "It's very niche. It seems to be bigger outside of Fresno than inside."
