KKBN Hard Working Man(10.05.16)


JC Clark

My boyfriend JC is one of the hardest working men I have ever known. His line of work sometimes requires long hours with a smile on his face, which suits him well because he always seems to have one. He is sincere, honest, and kind. He will go out of his way to help anyone in need. He is not afraid to get his hands dirty. If he sees a need, he automatically goes into help mode. JC has worn many different hats in his lifetime, including volunteer fireman and EMT. Last month while driving on a sales call with his boss, they saw a grass fire that had just ignited on the side of the freeway. Without hesitating, JC pulled over and together they stomped it out, though JC was just wearing his dress shoes.

Despite the fact that his work is exhausting at times, JC never complains. He is also an amazing father to six children, and makes time for them, whether it is a quick text or phone call to his grown children, or a ball game or movie with his teenagers. They know their dad loves them. He also takes time for my daughter, and supports her in all her activities. This sometimes involves coordinating and arranging a busy work schedule so he can drive up to 2 hours to make a 5th grade volleyball game or dance recital. She appreciates him as well. Finally, he takes time for me, compliments me, and makes me feel like the most important woman in the world. As I train for my half marathon, he has even ridden my bike alongside me to encourage me. My older brother and JC worked on the same volunteer fire department together before we started dating, and he told me that JC is a great guy, the type of person that you look forward to being around, his personality is contagious. I couldn’t agree more, and that is why I believe he deserves the honor of KKBN’s hard working man. I am so  proud of him and thankful for him.

KKBN Pet of The Week(10.04.16)


Hi my name is Blaze.  I am a rescue dog.  I was dropped off at the local animal control with another dog in 2012.  FOAC rescued me, neutered me, and I stayed in a boarding facility until they found me a new home.  Around Christmas of that year, Santa brought me my forever home.  Now days I get to chase birds (I just know that someday I’m going to catch one, I just know it!!), help my sister (Willow) chase deer out of mom’s garden, lounge in the sun, watch from the hard floor as the cats sleep in my fluffy bed, enjoy car rides and hang out on a 2 acre farm with my weirdo pack of 2 cats, 4 chickens & 2 horses.

I am a black dog and a staffordshire terrier mix, because my breed tends to get a bad wrap & most people don’t usually adopt black colored pets, I could have be waiting for a long time for a forever home, however I am living proof that my color and my breed make very good pets!  I am the best dog ever!  And always remember to spay and neuter your pets so they don’t end up in the shelter like I did.

KKBN Hard Working Man (09.28.16)

hwm92816Dennis Ramirez
My hard working mans name is Dennis, we moved back to the valley from Washington only 2 months before our daughter was going to be born. We had NOTHING. No where to go, and no money to start with. This man made sure that within a couple days of us being back here we had a place to live and my 8 month pregnant self had a bed to sleep in. He was at this time getting money however he could, all while applying for jobs that were permanent. He applied for Amazon through a temp agency and got hired! I then went into labor on April 26, he had to start work 2 days later. After spending two sleepless nights in the hospital with me and our newborn daughter he started his new job, ready and willing. He went to work everyday and missed out on precious time with our daughter that most dads get in those first few weeks, but it didn’t matter as long as his girls were taken care of. It has now been 4 months since our daughter was born and he has been converted from that temp agency to a permanent Amazon employee. In that short amount of time he has managed to get us our own house to live in and given our daughter the stability she deserves to know. He comes home after working a 12 hour shift every day; and the first thing he does is wash his hands, gives me a kiss on my forehead, ask me how my day was, and then goes straight to pick up and play with our little girl. Their bond is inseparable. She is fully and completely daddy’s little princess! I could go on and on about this man and the things he has and still sacrifices for our family daily, but I just wanted to let the world know there are still hard working men out there, and mine is surely one of them. I love you baby. Thank you for all that you do.
