It is always interesting to see how a basketball team is going to start out the season. How about those Sixers (started out 0 – 17). Better yet, how about them Warriors (18 – 2). High hopes for a great season are often dashed early on, and now and then a nice surprise. So how is it going to be for our Argonaut Mustangs and Amador Buffaloes this year? I don’t know but there are some bright prospects. I have been coaching and spectating this same group of now high school varsity players on both sides since they were in fifth grade... [Read more]

After a good week in Escalon playing in the Championship game of the Girls Varsity Tournament the Lady Buffs returned to Amador County to host the Golden Sierra Grizzlies Tuesday night. An exciting evening ensued.

Ladies JV Buffaloes

First up the lady JV Buffs started out with a game that went to the wire. With the scored tied and just 10 seconds left on the clock the Golden Sierra Grizzly JV girls had the ball at their goal looking for an open shot when Erika Bates from Amador stole the ball and drove the length of the court...

Week 1 of playoffs proved to be as exciting as anticipated for ACRA’s Men’s Basketball League. One team scored over 100 points, and both the other games were tough fought, close games. The first game of the night was a consolation game between the two number 1 seeds in their respected leagues. The A league team (Neil Carlson, REALTOR) ran away with this one against the B League Team (The Botto Inn). It was close through the first 10 minutes or so but after that it quickly got away from The Botto Inn with the final score being Neil... [Read more]

I had so much fun chasing that “tree stump” and since I found a new pink Kastmaster in one of my backup tackle boxes (I have several), I thought I’d wander out to Lake Camanche North Shore on Friday (that would be Black Friday). Besides, who wants to fight all the mall crowds?

I decided to sleep in (6:00 instead of 5:15) and got out to the lake around 9 a.m. Didn’t see any reason to rush, the fish would be there or they wouldn’t. I picked up right where I left off Monday with one rod out with rainbow Power Bait and a little Pro-Cure...

The Lady Buffalos took a herd down to Escalon last weekend and had a little mini stampede at the Annual Escalon High Girls Holiday Basketball Tournament. A very young team consisting of six sophomores, three juniors and three seniors made their way through their first two opponents. First up was Millennium High School in Tracy which the Herd knocked down in a close contest 44- 40. Second up was the tournament host a good Escalon High team that looked to put up a win on their home court and move into the Championship game. But that... [Read more]

“Look Inside Your Kitchen Pantry That Becomes Your New Medicine Cabinet”

Approximately one-third of the American population has high blood pressure, yikes – that is 31 percent (or 67 million people) or one in every three people. High blood pressure raises your risk of developing your first heart attack, your first stroke, chronic heart failure, or kidney disease. It is referred to as a “silent killer” because many people do not even know that they have it – 348,000 people will die this year from this silent ‘preventable’ killer –...

Argonaut Varsity Girls cruise to victory 39-18

The Argonaut girls had an easy time with the Eagles from Jim Elliot Christian last Thursday in the opening game of the annual Argonaut QB Tournament. You might say it was a complete team effort as eight different players scored for the Lady Mustangs. The game started off a bit slow as each team had a hard time putting the ball in the basket. At the end of the first quarter Argonaut held a 6-2 lead. The Mustangs scored 10 in the second period as Jim Elliot only scored 5 points. By...

Amador Boys Varsity Basketball played away Tuesday night in Sacramento against a stubborn Bradshaw Christian High School. In one of the most unusual starts in any basketball game I have ever seen the score at the end of the first quarter was Bradshaw Christian 8, Eric Shaw 12. The game tightened up from there on out with a balanced attack by both the Bradshaw and Amador boys sending them into the locker room at halftime with a score of 26 to 28 with Amador leading by 2. Things didn’t fare so well for the Buff’s in the third quarter... [Read more]

Picking up the thought from last week, Lake Amador is a business unlike Lake Camanche (which is a business too, but run by EBMUD for water storage) or Lake Pardee (same reason) and so it is with most of the lakes in our area. I could go on and tell you the who and the what, but suffice it to say that if you’re running a business, the premise is to make money.

So now, during this period of the hatchery being shut down, Lake Amador has to decide what direction to go. I’m not going into what Lee said, but to continue, some changes will...
