I wrote last year about my experience on a competitive basketball court as a player older than all but one. I think it’s time for an update. First, I am now older than all. Rick Smith, my senior by a month, was forced off the court by a very serious health event. We all miss him. He coached many of our Jackson boys and was the man with the gym key for a couple of decades, the most regular of the regulars. Not many now know how good a player he was and the passionate knowledge he had for the game. I remember. We hope for a full... [Read more]

One of people’s most enjoyable activities is eating food — perhaps, also, selecting, preparing and thinking about food. Many of our social gatherings, holidays and events are centered around delicious, fabulous food and, for many of us, it is so easy to overindulge. Is this glorious food supporting a healthy body or causing harmful effects?

There are basically six components of a healthy diet, which will support the human body emotionally and physically, reducing mood issues and degenerative conditions. The six components are:...

As first reported yesterday afternoon online, a horse in the wagon train of the Days of 49 has suffered a fatal injury. Dianne Quierolo Bennett, a frequent contributor to the Amador Ledger Dispatch, said the horse died quickly, and did not suffer after collapsing in Sutter Creek.

"The horse was part of a four horse Percheron hitch," she wrote in a post on social media. "It had a heart attack or aneurism and went down. Vet was on the wagon and at the horse within 30 seconds. There was nothing he could do, the horse went quick. They...

Unbeaten in three preseason contests, a confident Amador High JV football squad hosted the Colusa Red Hawks last Friday. From the opening kickoff, things didn’t look too good for the home team — Colusa scored in three plays, jumping out to a 6-0 advantage. Despite Reese Gilmore’s 24 yards on the ground in Amador’s opening drive, the Buffalos turned the ball over on downs, and then punted after their next drive also sputtered — not exactly what Coach Matt Kantack had in mind. As the first quarter ended, The Red Hawks had the ball near... [Read more]

The Castle Oaks Swingers 9-hole golf club recently attended the Golf Invitational at Lake of the Pines, in Auburn, with a theme of Mad Hatter Tea Party. Several of the ladies from Ione placed in the tournament. The tournament format was two-person scramble. On the front 9, winners included Conni Warren in 5th place and Bettie Yamashita in 4th place. On the back 9, the 1st-place team included Anni Rose. Besides the 9-hole competition, there was a putting contest. The competition was again split into the front 9 and the back 9. Winner...

Clear Lake is the essence of tranquility at sunset. Amador Ledger Dispatch photo by Mark Kautz
n Friday morning, the 19th, we took off for parts unknown. Our destination was what I thought was a little-known resort north of Clear Lake, up in Lake County.

After five hours on the road, we arrived at a lake that actually had water in it. Wow, what a concept. This is not going to be a travel log, but an actual fishing adventure.

The lake is near a little town called Upper Lake. We had reservations for a campsite that was supposed to be next to the lake. Oh, it was next to the lake alright; in fact, the door of the trailer...

The Amador boys’ soccer team started off Mother Lode League competition last week, playing Bret Harte on Tuesday and Sonora on Thursday. Both squads ended up splitting the two matches, but with opposite results on each night.

The league opener with Bret Harte pitted even teams, with even opportunities to score. Logan Harper and Cody Smith marshaled the Amador defense to keep the Bullfrog offense at bay, while Jonny Lubenko fired in a fantastic cross to Jose Ramirez to give Amador a narrow 1-0 lead at halftime.

Argonaut snatched defeat from the jaws of victory last Friday night, when the Mustangs traveled to Denair to play the Coyotes. It all started well for the Mustangs, as Joey Guidi and Andrew Deason both scored touchdowns and rushed for a combined 132 yards in the first half, to give Argonaut a slim, 14-12, lead at the halftime break. Joey White even added 39 yards in rushing, to give the Mustangs over 150 yards for the first half.

The score remained 14-12 Mustangs entering the fourth quarter, after a third-quarter defensive...

The Amador High School Varsity girls’ volleyball team has been working hard, and as a result they enjoyed a dominant preseason. In fact, in eight preseason matches, the girls lost only two individual games, both to a powerful Petaluma in a Sacramento tournament. And, while they ended up losing the match to Petaluma, they beat all seven of their other opponents without losing a game, including strong Bradshaw Christian and Tokay squads

Last week, they beat San Juan at home: 25-7, 25-0 and 25-9, as well as Liberty Ranch on the...

Last Friday night, the Amador Buffalos (0-3) took on the Colusa Redhawks (1-2). It was homecoming night for the Buffalos and, without a win this preseason, the Buffalos were looking to get their first victory. Amador has had a tough three games this year, against Lodi, Center and Capital Christian high schools.

I talked to some of the Amador players before the game and I could immediately tell that they were hungry for that first win. I asked linebacker Tj (Todd) Sweet how it felt playing in his last homecoming game and how it...

These photos were taken this morning, Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014, by photojournalist Bill Lavallie. If you have pictures of the Wagon Train you would like to share, please post them below. You might see your entry in the newspaper!

From Bill:

Kudos to all the wagon team members this morning.

They hitched up and headed out this morning for their shakedown run on Steiner Road. Pouring rain, slick roads and a chill in the air. True pioneer spirit kept them going.

They're now headed back to Cooper Vineyards to assess and fix...
