(PNS reporting from VISALIA, CA) Outgoing Visalia Chamber of Commerce president Adrianna Castro stands behind the selection of her brother, area broccoli farmer and businessman Eddie Reyes, as Grand Marshall for today’s annual July 4th parade.

“Eddie is more than just my big brother,” Castro explained. “He was a man with a plan Panama!” [Mas…]
