I also work for a nonprofit hospice in Sutter County and they will soon have a fundraiser at a private house where many of our staff will prepare appetizers for 100 guests. I want to prepare abalone appetizers from three abalone that we already have tagged and frozen from last season. The...

Freddie Hamilton, Mark Jankowski and Turner Elson all contributed to an eight-goal final frame, while goaltender Nick Schneider made countless point-blank stops to keep the Heat in the game. However, a couple bad bounces and a late shorthanded goal push the Condors over the Heat, effectively ending Stockton’s postseason hopes as the Heat can no longer mathematically earn a spot in the...
