For most men, getting older is a distant thought; a time when bucket-list items are crossed off the list, financial goals are accomplished, and retirement awaits. But then, one day, we wake up and realize that we're not just getting older - we are older. Workouts in the gym start to cause more aches and pains the next morning. Keeping weight off around the midsection is much harder than it once was. Stretching before an impromptu game of basketball isn't just a good idea - it's necessary for you to perform. And that gets to the crux of what men hate most about aging - the inability to perform as they used to, whether it's in the bedroom or on the basketball court.
Unfortunately, there's no avoiding the inevitable. As men age, their testosterone levels deplete, causing a slew of mid-life maladies like:
- Loss of Energy
- Lack of Interest in Sex
- Low Sex Drive
- Can't Hold an Erection
- Weight Gain
- Muscle Loss
- Hair Loss
- Nagging Injuries
If you're a man in his 30s or 40s, and you feel like you're dragging your feet through life with no upside, don't lose hope. Millions of men just like you are experiencing the same symptoms and feelings that you're suffering through. In fact, almost 75% of men live life with undiagnosed low testosterone.
Unlike those men, however, you don't have to settle for the effects of aging. There are easy, science-backed solutions available to you right now. If you're ready to reclaim the looks and feel of your prime, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be for you. TRT in Hanford, CA bridges the gap between your old life with low-T and the new, more virile version of you. That's where Testosterone Optimization Program comes in - to facilitate your transition to a new life with optimal testosterone levels. With TOP by your side, you'll have the guidance and tools to get back on track with personalized TRT plans.
But to understand the life-changing benefits of TOP, you've got to first understand testosterone, the symptoms of low-T, and how TRT works to replenish this much-needed hormone.
Trust the TOP Difference
Did you know that one in five men over the age of 45 exhibit signs of low testosterone? Male testosterone levels begin dropping gradually as soon as age 30. As men age and start to question their sexual health, some of the top symptoms they report are low libido, erectile dysfunction, and delayed ejaculation. When combined, these symptoms can lead men to develop self-image issues, experience poor relationships, and even have a lower quality of life.
But for men living with low-T, a clear path has been paved toward relief. That path starts with the Testosterone Optimization Program. TOP was founded to give men with low-T a new lease on life - one that includes less body fat, fewer performance issues in the bedroom, and more energy. If you're ready to feel and look younger, it's time to consider testosterone replacement therapy from TOP. TRT in Hanford, CA, is safe, streamlined for convenience, and personalized to your unique needs. That way, you can age on your own terms and love life as you did in your prime.
Patients choose TOP because we take the time to learn about your low-T symptoms and provide personalized, in-office treatment. Other benefits include:
- Blood Tests to Determine Low-T Diagnosis
- Personalized TRT Plans Based on Your Goals
- No Need for Trips to the Pharmacy
- In-Office Intramuscular TRT Injections
- TRT Provided by Licensed Doctors
- Clean, Comfortable, and Calming TRT Clinic in Fresno
- Many Men Experience Results Quickly
How the TOP Program Works

Through the treatment plan our low testosterone doctors create specifically for you, they can help alleviate most, if not all, of the symptoms associated with low testosterone.559-354-3537

Texas-based DR Horton plans to build the largest new home subdivision ever in Hanford. At 457 homes, built in six phases, the city is processing a draft environmental impact report this month with a public comment period ending May 27.
The new homes would be located in the south part of town — south of Hanford Armona Road and north of Houston Avenue along 101/2 Avenue and not far from Home Garden. Most of the 95 acres that the project will be built on is in agricultural use now.
While DR Horton may be huge nationally, there are a contingent of other major builders in Kings County. DR Horton does have a pending project in Corcoran called Fox Glenn and plenty of other projects in the Valley including three in Tulare, where homes start at $397,000.
In their operational statement the company lays out an ambitious construction schedule launching the project as soon as possible.
“Construction will take approximately 24 months, with total buildout of the homes by Q4 2025.”
Besides the homes, the project called Lunaria will feature a 5.82-acre park.
In addition to this new single family project DR Horton has filed another map to build 95 homes on 21 acres between 12th and 13th avenues.
Right now, Kings County’s busiest builders are San Joaquin Valley Homes and Lennar — both with projects in Hanford. Lennar has a 161-unit subdivision in northwest Hanford at 13th Avenue and Grangeville Boulevard nearing a final map. Lennar also has a 133-unit project nearby under construction.
Other major projects include Woodside Homes with a 158-unit subdivision under construction and CalClark Farms, with a 191-unit project.
San Joaquin Valley Homes' two Hanford subdivisions add up to 267 homes — altogether an active Hanford pipeline by builders.
High interest rates and concern about the economy have put dampers on the industry nationwide, but nevertheless, DR Horton stock is double what it was a year ago
In an earnings release recently, the leading home builder said "the spring selling season is off to an encouraging start." It added demand improved during the quarter due to "normal seasonal factors," despite higher mortgage rates and inflationary pressures.
Although higher interest rates and economic uncertainty may persist for some time, the supply of both new and existing homes at affordable price points remains limited," Board Chairman Donald Horton said in Thursday's earnings release. "Demographics supporting housing demand remain favorable," he added.
So far this year builders have permitted 132 homes in the county through May 9 compared to just 78 over the same period in 2022 and slightly down from pre-pandemic times in 2019, when they permitted 158 new homes, according to Construction Monitor.
Hanford not in high-risk flood area, Kings County map shows; county urges residents in flood-prone areas to prepare
While large pieces of land in Kings County, including land just outside Lemoore and Corcoran, are classified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency at a high-risk for flooding, Hanford is not, according to a map released by the Kings County Office of Emergency Services.“We don’t have any natural waterways, and we don’t expect that the snow melt will cause any significant flooding problems within the city limits,” said Community Relations Manager Brian Johnson. “As far as the runoff goes into the ditch...
While large pieces of land in Kings County, including land just outside Lemoore and Corcoran, are classified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency at a high-risk for flooding, Hanford is not, according to a map released by the Kings County Office of Emergency Services.
“We don’t have any natural waterways, and we don’t expect that the snow melt will cause any significant flooding problems within the city limits,” said Community Relations Manager Brian Johnson. “As far as the runoff goes into the ditches and streams, that is something that we always keep an eye on, but we don’t have any real concerns as far as flooding.”
The map breaks down the parts of Kings County that are at a high risk of flooding by compiling the geographic areas and flood-zones that have historically had higher probabilities of flooding.
The red parts of the publicly available map are labeled as flooded area, while the dark blue parts of the map indicate land that is currently designated by FEMA as a high risk area.
Under these FEMA designations, areas that are classified as high risk have a 1 percent or greater risk of annual flooding or otherwise have temporarily increased flood risk. Areas that are considered moderate risk, colored by a lighter blue on the map, have a 0.2 percent chance of annual flooding.
Kings County has continued a state of emergency declared on March 10 prompted by a series of intense winter storms that caused flooding throughout California. The storms also deposited a "historic" snowpack in the Sierra Nevada — data from the California Nevada River Forecast Center shows that snow depth is more than 7.5 feet in some places.
The snowpack is expected to melt as warmer spring weather approaches and deposit over a million acre feet of water in the Tulare Lakebed.
Breaking down the map
The map shows that Lemoore and the Island District have many large swaths of land classified as high or moderate risk. West of Highway 41 along West Industry Avenue is one of the large swaths of high-risk land. North of town, at the intersection of Grangeville Boulevard and Highway 41 is another area classified as high risk.
North 191/2 Avenue, inside Lemoore city limits from West Bush Street to Lemoore's northern border, is classified as moderate risk.
Corcoran is surrounded by both high-risk and flooded land to the west, south and north on the map. The area inside city limits is largely not classified as high-risk, but the area just south of the city near Highway 43 is described by the map as flooded. To the west, Whitley and Orange avenues are both closed past 7th Avenue.
Just east of Remnoy, the map shows that large swaths of the city are classified as either flooded or at high risk. In this same area, Grangeville Boulevard is closed by flooding between 5th and 2nd avenues.
Hanford 'in good shape'
Hanford Vice-Mayor Mark Kairis commended Hanford city staff for continuing to keep storm drains clear and giving water the chance to move off of roadways.
“The message I want to put out to the people of Hanford is, we’re in good shape,” Kairis said. “We don’t have any major concerns of massive flooding or anything like that. There may be some lower areas in the city that do get impacted, especially if additional storms come through, but our staff at the city is doing a wonderful job."
A spokesperson for Kings County said the maps are provisional and are updated as flooding occurs, adding that the county is waiting on models from the Department of Water Resources to project the rate of snowmelt that will affect the area around the Tulare Lake basin.
The maps are publicly available, along with a list of closed roads in Kings County and emergency preparedness tips, through the Kings County Office of Emergency Services website at www.countyofkings.com/community/2023-flood.
'It's never too late to prepare'
“The best thing that we can tell the community is that it's never too late to prepare,” said Kings County Office of Emergency Services Manager Abraham Valencia. “Anybody that lives around a waterway or lives anywhere near those flood maps that we have on the county website needs to make a conscious effort to prepare.”
The spokesperson recommended that residents living in the higher risk flood areas should prepare by registering for Kings County alerts through the Office of Emergency Services website, getting sandbags at one of a number of free locations and notifying Kings County dispatch of any flooding by calling (559) 852-2720.
Valencia said Kings County was now focusing on strengthening its partnerships in other communities.
“They have more communities around their waterways, which is the reason they've had these situations earlier than us in Kings County,” Valencia said. “The communities that we’re concerned about are more because of the water buildup, that it's pushing up against our communities like Stratford, Corcoran. We're strengthening our partnerships with them so that they can share lessons learned.”
Hanford officials, meanwhile, say they’re ready to provide support to other nearby communities as the snowpack melts.
“We want to make sure they know it is available, and I think we’ll continue to have that supporting role as warmer temperatures and snow melts as a result,” Johnson said.
Valencia said Kings County was continuing to monitor how quickly the snowpack would melt, including hot days and cold nights, and warm rainstorms. Valencia describes the snowpack as “historic.”
“From this point that we're talking right now, the rivers have been handling that,” Valencia said. “But we do fear that if it gets too hot too fast, as far as weather, it could melt that snow and then that could create uncontrolled pressures on our waterways, and then it could flood areas in our county.”
“There’s a lot of great minds and great people working on this, but Mother Nature is Mother Nature,” Kairis said.
Afterschool Boys & Girls Club program targeting substance abuse coming to Hanford next fall

An afterschool Boys & Girls Club program for Hanford students in middle and high school will be coming to the City at the Coe Park building next fall.The main focus of the program, which will be the first of its kind for Hanford, will be to encourage students to avoid using unhealthy substances, according to the City.“The substance-use prevention material will all be evide...
The main focus of the program, which will be the first of its kind for Hanford, will be to encourage students to avoid using unhealthy substances, according to the City.
“The substance-use prevention material will all be evidence-based,” said Hanford Parks and Community Services Director Brad Albert. “It’s really to promote making good choices.”
A $2.45 million grant from Proposition 64, which legalized recreational use of marijuana, was awarded to Hanford by the California Board of State and Community Corrections, and will fund the program for five years. Afterward, city officials say that significant fundraising will be needed to keep the program afloat.
The City will partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias to run the afterschool program.
“The board and staff at Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias are honored to open a Club in Hanford,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias CEO Galen Quenzer. “We currently operate 15 clubs in Tulare County, and this will be the first in Kings County. We look forward to working with City leaders, local educators, and parents to design a youth development program that meets the needs of Hanford's youth.”
According to Albert, the program will incorporate STEM, or Science, Technology, Education or Math curriculum into the learning opportunities for its students.
“We’re going to give them hands-on experience using cutting-edge technology,” Albert said. “Hopefully that will translate into students pursuing STEM degrees and careers right here in the Central Valley.”
Staff from Hanford Elementary School District and Hanford Joint Union High School District identified potential candidates for the program. The City says they will work closely with the districts to bring the Boys & Girls Club to students and their families.

School district looking to reduce congestion during pick-up at Hanford West

Hanford’s Joint Union High School District is looking at modifying traffic routes in and around Hanford West High School to cut down on congestion during pick-up and drop-off times.
During a school board meeting Tuesday night, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services and Operations Renee Creech showed four potential designs for the area around Hanford West high school to potentially reduce traffic and congestion.
The first, and cheapest design at $250,000, would place a right turn lane at the Lacey Boulevard entrance. The second would create a new drop-off or pickup area near the north end of campus and create a roundabout to exit onto nearby Campus Drive. The cost would be $870,000.
Creech said, however, that preliminary tests indicated that while a roundabout would work for smaller vehicles and cars, it may not effectively accommodate larger vehicles and trucks.
The third option would extend a service drive to the north, which would exit onto Greenfield Avenue. The estimated cost for this option is $1,300,000.
The final option was to build a bridge from the service drive to Adventist Health Property from the pool area over land owned by People's Ditch. However, the school board would need to receive easements from both Adventist Health and People’s Ditch, which own pieces of the land. The option is expected to cost around $2,030,000.
The board did not commit to any of the options, but is expected to take action during the next regularly scheduled meeting on Aug. 22, according to the agenda packet.
The board also approved more than 50 courses to be taught at the district’s school for adults. The classes were reviewed by the California Department of Education, and range from work readiness to world history and from computer literacy to the fundamentals of art. The District also approved a list of coaches helping with sports at local high schools, both who are paid via stipend and those who work on a volunteer basis.
The meeting also featured a presentation on an agreement with Darden Architects for design and construction management of a new district office at 300 West Sixth St., the current location of the Hanford Sentinel. The cost of the design and management work is projected to be under 10 percent of the cost of all construction work done at the site.
The district voted in late June to purchase the Hanford Sentinel building at an appraised value of $1.49 million.
