The Chester Lady Volcanoes managed to stave off a 25-point third-quarter push by Portola at home last week to beat the Tigers on a 67-57 final score — and managed to gain a much-needed win just one game before the start of Five-Star League action.

Although Chester led Portola 23-16 going into the locker room at halftime, the Tigers rallied behind junior Alli Ramelli’s 11-point run and a pair of free throws from fellow junior Sophia Selvaggio to take a 33-32 lead in the game. For the next 11 points scored by either team it was neck and neck until the Vols were able to finally pull away in the fourth period for the win.

After the game, Chester junior guard Reanna Trujillo said the win was vastly important for more than one reason.

Accidental catch
Question: I fly fish for calico bass using barbless hooks in the kelp beds off Catalina Island and the coast, and it’s all strictly catch and release. Garibaldi are abundant in this habitat and are very aggressive. When I can see them I can usually avoid catching them. However, rarely one will take my fly inadvertently. Since they are only lightly hooked through the lip, they survive the accidental catch and release. However, it is illegal to “take” garibaldi. Is this considered illegal if caught by accident and then released? How can one avoid catching them?

A proposal that would allow Los Molinos High School to play eight-man football in 2015 is being considered by California Interscholastic Federation Northern Section officials, even though enrollment at the campus is far greater than the limit allowed by the athletic agency.

In the Northern Section, schools with an enrollment of more than 150 students are required to play 11-man football. At Los Molinos, the enrollment is 189 students — more than 25 percent over the limit. Add a comment

Habitat issues biggest factor in California pheasant decline

Question: Wild pheasants in the Sacramento Valley have been in steep decline for many years and very little effort, if any, is being made to help this once-abundant game bird make a comeback. Improved habitat conditions, a reduced season and lowered bag limits could help them recover. What was the Fish and Game Commission thinking when they raised the limit and extended the season to what it is today?
