Family and friends gathered together on December 20, 2014 to watch as Chelsea signed her letter of intent to play softball at McPherson College in Kansas.

It all began when Chelsea started playing recreational softball here in Amador County. From there she started travel softball with the Sirens and continued on to play 3 years with the Runnin’ Rebels before the USA Elite Gold team recruited her for her pitching.

Chelsea is going into her third year at the Varsity level for pitching for Argonaut High School. Last season, she was...

In 2012, one of Amador County’s own horse training specialists, Robert Gonzales, was invited “across the pond” to the United Kingdom to work with the staff and participants of HorseBack UK. This year, Gonzales has been invited again to participate in this charitable organization focusing on rehabilitating wounded soldiers. With the support from Help for Heroes, HorseBack UK provides a safe and secure environment to aid those who are serving, or who have served, in the UK armed forces. Gonzales will be traveling to Scotland February... [Read more]

At 266 pounds, Jody Drollinger said her life was depressing, dreary and joyless.

So in January 2014, the 43-year-old set out on a weight loss journey by exercising and cutting out fast food and soda from her diet — and has since shed an impressive 126 pounds!

“This journey has been one of the best accomplishments I have ever achieved — and it’s just getting started!” the Pine Grove, Calif. native said.

What was your life like before the weight loss?

My life was a complete mess. It was depressing, dreary and joyless — not to...

If your children participate in athletics at Amador High School, or if you have attended any sporting event at Amador for the past 20 years, then the name Jackie Rutherford should sound familiar to you.

Jackie Rutherford is the friendly lady who is among the first to welcome you with a smile to the field, or building, for football, boys and girls soccer and boys and girls basketball games. The only reason she does not cover volleyball, Rutherford declared, is because it would interfere with the soccer games. Sound familiar yet?...

I was out on the DFW stocking website and noticed that they plan to stock New Melones next week. It would be my guess that they will put half in at Glory Hole and the rest at the launch ramp below the Highway 49 Bridge. They never tell you what day, but it would be my guess that if you went out Wednesday or Friday you might have a good chance of fish. I’ll probably hit the launch ramp on Wednesday.

We’re doing the “Design to Sell” thing at our house, so my fishing time is limited, but I try to get out at least once a week so I have...

MLL Varsity Girls Basketball — Week 3

As we approach the mid season mark in the Mother Lode League for varsity girls, it appears as if the Sonora girls will be heading to the playoffs. Sonora sits at 6-0, alone at the top of the MLL as the second half of league play gets underway. It would take a total collapse for Sonora to miss the playoffs. The Lady Mustangs are in great shape as they are in sole possession of second place at 4-1. Calaveras (the surprise of the MLL this year) is in the third spot at 3-2 with Bret Harte on their...

You actually get tired just walking into the gym and taking in the surroundings. But not everyone is tired — not the 250 youth wrestlers set to compete. And not the parents — certainly not. If I were a betting man, I’d guess that wrestling coaches Gary Landergen, Brian Whaling and Emilio Estrada might be. I caught them setting up on Friday night, coaching and running the Argonaut Invitational on Saturday morning, and back for the kids on Sunday for youth wrestling. But if they were tired — you’d never know it judging from the smiles,... [Read more]

On Friday, January 16 the Argonaut Varsity Girls Basketball Team played host to the Lady Bears of Summerville.

The Argonaut Varsity Girls Basketball Team Played host to the Summerville Bears on Friday night and they were determined not to lose another game to Tuolumne County in the same week. The Argonaut Varsity Girls are a good basketball team to begin with, but add a little dash of determination and look out visitors — you are in our house. Domination in basketball is most effective with tight defensive pressure. The Lady...

The Amador Boys Varsity Basketball team traveled to Calaveras High School in San Andreas on Tuesday, January 20. The Calaveras boys, who were projected to win the Mother Lode League basketball competition, had their hands full with the Amador Buffalos. The Buffalos held the Tribe to just 7 points playing good defense while scoring 9 of their own. Going into the second quarter, they had hopes of making this a close contest, but the Buffs unraveled just a bit on offense by scoring only 5 points for the period. They played a good second...

Sonora, ROP, Amador, Weston Ranch, Red Bluff and Argonaut all met on Saturday, January 17, to battle it out on the mats. And battle they did. At the end of the day, some came out better than others, some missed close opportunities and sure, some have some work to do, but one thing is certain, they gave it everything they had.

The same can be said for the Amador County Jackson Lions Club, which did a fantastic job of keeping things moving along and taking care of anything that came up. With that said, here are the individual results:...

In what can only be described as a game for the ages, the Argonaut Mustangs varsity boys basketball team finally did something every team in the Mother Lode League has been trying to do since football season: beat Sonora. Since Sonora joined the MLL earlier this year they have been undefeated in boys sports in league play. Well Sonora is undefeated no longer as the Mustangs beat the Wildcats in a crazy finish at Argonaut High School 65-60 in overtime Wednesday night.

Not only was it an upset for the Mustangs, but it put Argonaut...

MLL Varsity Boys Basketball — Week 2

Three games into Mother Lode League play for the varsity boys, and all seems to be shaping up as I predicted. Well, sort of. As predicted, Calaveras and Sonora are sitting on top of the MLL undefeated. Bret Harte sits alone in third at 2-1 after a shocking upset of Argonaut on Monday night 49-46. Linden is hanging on to the fourth spot at 1-1 while Argonaut is surprisingly in fifth at 1-2. Summerville at 0-2 and Amador at 0-3 are at the bottom of the Mother Lode League.

Before she went off to college to become a California Golden Bear at the University of California, Kobie Pettis was an Argonaut Mustang. Graduating from Argonaut in 2014 she had an amazing career. She led her Argonaut High team to the Mother Lode League (MLL) Championship in 2011 and 2012, the school’s first league championships since 1998. Pettis was named the Most Inspirational Player and All-Second-Team as a junior in 2013 — the MLL most valuable player and Stockton Record’s Player of the Year in 2012.

Not to mention she was also...

On Wednesday, January 7, the Argonaut Girls Varsity Basketball Team hosted the Lady Linden Lionesses in Jackson. The Mustangs were feeling good about practice and went into the game with confidence and a desire to show their conference opponents that they want to be champions.

This is a story about a have and a have-not. The week of January 4, I had two chances to go fishing.

The first time was on Tuesday. I pulled out of the house at the usual time around 7:45 a.m., when my wife leaves for work. I don’t know how it works for other writers, but I begin my stories as I’m driving down the road. Being a blogger, I asked, and others said they do the same thing.

Driving down Shake Ridge toward Sutter Creek, even though it’s been some time since we’ve seen any rain, the road is still damp. This particular...
