There are some big changes to the athletic department going into effect at Chester High School this year. New staffing nearly across the board will affect every aspect of how Chester plays its game.

One big change is the title of athletic director. This summer, long-time Athletic Director Terry Hernandez left Chester after 20 years of teaching and coaching for a position at Central Valley High School in Redding. Paul Hardig took over the AD position after Hernandez’s departure.

Hernandez was also Chester’s head football coach. Former assistant coach Rich Dreith took the helm of the team, and plans to steer it into another winning season.

Rescued rattlesnake

Question: I found and took home a dying Northern Pacific rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus oreganus) after it became a victim of a wildfire. It’s now eating great and able to move fluently which is great and a job well done in my eyes. I’ve had it in captivity close to three weeks now. Is it OK to place it back into the wild (away from humans, of course)?

Golf Results for the week of 8/22/2014

Plumas Pines
Women’s Golf Club Hero game

Enjoying the nice cool weather after the rain Tuesday, Aug. 12, Plumas Pines Women’s Golf Club played a team game, “Hero,” using two low net scores in the foursome. Before the game, one player is marked on each hole of the scorecard, in rotation. The marked player is the hero. That person’s score can be used once, twice or not at all. It was a fun game.

The scores were: First place: Nancy Bartlett, Renee Walker, Bev Parry and Judy Rossi with a net of 113. Second place: Laurie Humphries, Connie Raheb, Jan Pierce and a blind draw of Nancy Bartlett, for a net 124.

Chip-ins were earned by Scooter Kidwell and Bev Parry.

Moving wildlife

Question: I live in San Luis Obispo and have a quick question regarding relocating three baby turtles. My wife and I have visited this small pond for quite some time, and due to the drought we are afraid that the turtles will die due to the pond getting smaller and smaller. We know that the California turtle is in danger to become extinct due to the red-eared turtle influx here in California. I need to know if I need a permit to move them off of state land.
