FRESNO – The Fresno Tacos (nee, Grizzlies) have had enough. Fed up (pun intended) after months of back and forth on Twitter, the organization announced at a press conference the morning of (Taco) Tuesday, March 21 that they’re making the “Bacon vs. Tacos” competition official with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, and their bizarre bacon fetish. No longer will the Taco Capital of The World be disrespected without consequence.

The two organizations have made waves on the promotional front the last several seasons, especially as it concerns food that makes each region unique. While it was the “Fresno Tacos” taking home the Golden Bobblehead for Minor League Baseball’s top promotion in 2015, the “Lehigh Valley Cheesesteaks” followed suit, winning the award in 2016. So it’s high time things
are settled to see who is really number one (the Tacos).

EDITORIAL - St. Patrick’s Day has become one of the nation’s favorite holidays to celebrate and party. Unfortunately, too many people are taking to the roads after drinking, making the holiday one of our most dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 252 people lost their lives in drunk driving-related crashes during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period from 2011-2015.

More than a fourth of them were killed in drunk driving crashes that occurred in the early morning, post-party hours (midnight to 5:59 a.m.). That’s why local police departments and the California Office of Traffic Safety are teaming up to reach all drivers with an important life-saving message and warning: Don’t Drive Impaired by Drugs or Alcohol.
