Jadyn Conover shows off the catch he got at Bucks Lake two weeks ago. The fish were taking the bait for this young man during his fishing trip with his grandpa. Though the water here in Plumas County continues to get colder and colder, there is still time to get some lake fishing in without having to worry about drilling a hole in the ice. Photo submitted

The Indians are set and ready to start shooting some hoops as the school’s two teams prepare for basketball season. The boys’ team has a lot to live up to after a winning season last year. The girls’ team finished with a losing record last season, but hopes to redeem itself this year.
The boys’ team had its best season in more than 10 years last year with a 14-10 record that landed the boys in the second round of playoffs. The team lost four seniors last year, including three starters. Thus, this year’s team only has nine players, as opposed to last year’s 13.
The Turkey Trot, the annual run/walk in Quincy that takes place the morning of Thanksgiving, broke its attendance record this year with 130 people showing up to shed a few pounds before feasting with their families. Last year’s event included a few more than 100 participants.
Keeping hunters out
Question: Our church owns about 700 acres in the foothills of Northern California. We recently had someone shoot at a six-point buck, wound it and screech away off the property. We called the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, who sent out a tracker. They followed the trail of blood but never found the wounded animal.
Meanwhile, we have many deer that reside on our property and we are vegetarians. We do not shoot the deer and they wander freely on the property. You can walk within maybe 20 feet of even these majestic big bucks and they won’t flee. We do not want people shooting the animals on our property.
The Fish and Wildlife person who came out told us it was legal for people to shoot the deer on our property unless we fenced it or posted signs (such as “Posted No Hunting”) all over the property. Is this really true? For one thing, it isn’t even hunting season (with a firearm, which this was), and second, it’s private property and we’ve not given written permission to anyone to hunt on our property.

The Golden Eagles volleyball team had quite a ride this year, but its season came to an end Nov. 30 when the team was pushed out of the playoffs by Fresno City College in the second round. The Eagles previously beat Porterville in the first round of playoffs Nov. 26.
Feather River College’s loss to Fresno came in the fifth game. The Eagles lost the first set before staging a comeback attempt. Fresno dominated Feather River 25-12 in the first game.
The Eagles regained their composure and started putting some points on the board while avoiding unforced errors. FRC won the second set 25-21 and the third a close 26-24. Fresno came back again to win the fourth game 25-17 and the final one 15-12.
