While most other local teams were taking a break over the holidays, the Chester High School boys’ basketball team traveled to Fort Bragg for a three-day tournament Dec. 19 – 21.

Chester finished the tournament with a 2-1 record. After beating Mendocino 55-28 and Hoopa Valley 73-68, Chester lost the championship match to Justin-Siena 66-44.

In their opening game Dec. 19, the Chester Volcanoes blew the doors off Mendocino 19-5 in the first quarter and 14-2 in the third quarter, but eased up in the second and fourth quarters, keeping the scoring mostly even.

Topher Taylor led Chester’s scoring with 17 points, followed by David Estacio with 10 points and Wyatt Durkin and Micah Bondon with eight points apiece.

Special regulations

Question: What are the bag limits for waters that have special regulations for trout? In some cases, specifically the middle fork of the Stanislaus River, the river is broken down into sections. For example, from the Beardsley Dam down to the Spring Gap Bridge there are certain restrictions and the bag limit is two fish of at least 14 inches. From the same bridge down to New Melones Lake there are no special restrictions and the bag limit is two fish.

Fishing Report for the week of 12/28/2011; Winter is here — really?

“The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.” —Patrick Young

The recent weather has been a very mixed blessing.

I got a bit nervous when we got our first snow during the first week of October. I am not a huge fan of heavy snow years and that seemed to me like a bad omen.  As it turns out, we have only had a few light snows in the nearly three months since then

The Feather River College women’s basketball team faced two tough teams at the Santa Rosa tournament earlier this month, when the Golden Eagles lost to City College of San Francisco, the No. 2 team in the north, and Ohlone College, the No. 4 team in the north.

In their opener against City College of San Francisco, the Golden Eagles lost 64-56, after a night of poor free-throw shooting which may have cost them the win.

“We came out with a ton of fight and intensity, and it was a very fun and exciting game,” said FRC coach Haley White.

Feather River trailed by three points with two minutes remaining in the game, but in the end the Lady Eagles couldn’t get the ball to bounce their way.

Tejon Ranch elk

Question: I live in Stallion Springs, a rural community about 15 miles west of Tehachapi, and we have bands of elk that roam in the neighborhood. They move freely between the adjoining huge Tejon Ranch and the neighboring Bear Valley Springs community.

I have been told by a born-and-raised Tehachapi native that the elk escaped in the early 1970s from a high fence operation located in the nearby Cummings Valley.
