This was one of the closest matches the Greenville Indians have played this season, as most of their other contests have ended with much wider scoring margins.

Slingshot hunting

Question: I have been searching for any regulations specifically regarding slingshots but have found no clear reference to them within the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) hunting regulations. As written, slingshots are not a legal method of take for any game. Yet there are inferences that under certain sections, such as Fish and Game Code section 4186, a slingshot would be considered a legal method of take. Further, varmints such as jackrabbit and ground squirrel do not fall under the regulations for fur-bearing mammals. I have not been able to find any source of reference on the DFG website or credible interpretation of the regulations by any warden or lawyer. Can you please provide clear references relating to the use of a slingshot for taking any game or nongame animals?

The Feather River College men’s and women’s basketball teams each picked up an important conference win against Shasta last Saturday evening in Quincy.

In back-to-back matches in front of a home crowd, the FRC women defeated Shasta 63-58, and then the men beat Shasta 69-49.

On the men’s side, both Feather River and Shasta entered the contest 4-1 in the Golden Valley Conference, so the victory moved FRC into first place with four games left in the regular season.

For the women, the win brought the Golden Eagles’ conference record to 4-2, keeping their playoff hopes alive.

Wild pig threat

Question: I learned recently that some Indians on a reservation in my area released some pigs for hunting purposes and now they are breeding and beginning to populate the area where I walk my dogs in Descanso, Calif. Are these pigs a threat to me or my dogs?
