They needed four in the final inning, and Rodman’s hit put them over the top as Roaring Camp was crowned ACRA’s Men’s Softball League champions. Amador Ledger Dispatch photo by John Williamson
Another season of ACRA’s Men’s Softball League is in the (score) books. The League had seven teams again this season and they all play each other twice plus double elimination playoffs. Well after the regular season and most of the playoff it came down to just two teams, Roaring Camp and Warriors. This was a rematch of the championship game from last season where Warriors won both games the final day to knock off Roaring Camp for the first time in 5-10 years. In a double elimination playoff championship game, one team will always... [Read more]

Lynn Porovich recently bowled a perfect 300 at Gold Country Lanes, 81 Ridge Rd., Sutter Creek. “She’s the only woman we have on record at Gold Country Lanes to to bowl a perfect game in a scratch league game,” said John Swift of Gold Country Lanes. “I found an old record book and Porovich holds the previous high scratch game in league with a score of 289, set — amazingly enough — in the 2005/6 season.”

Congratulations to Porovich on her amazing accomplishment. The Amador Ledger Dispatch looks forward to publishing your next...

Berries, green and yellow vegetables, tomatoes, raw nuts and wild fish can all assist in battling macular degeneration. Photo courtesy to the Amador Ledger Dispatch

Question (from Judy M., Santa Cruz): I am 70 years old and was diagnosed with macular degeneration. Would nutrition play a role?

Answer: First, I’d like to explain what this condition is before jumping into a nutritional protocol. Macular degeneration, often referred to as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), is the leading cause of blindness and affects 13 million people in the United States aged 55 and older. The macula is located near the center of the retina in the tissue walls at the back of the eyeball and is responsible...

As girl’s varsity Volleyball gets closer to its 2015 – 2016 season, the question is: Can anyone beat Sonora? Last year saw Sonora roll through the Mother Lode League undefeated to take the MLL crown. Not only did Sonora win the league, but they also won the section and the state championships. Now the defending champs have the opportunity to defend their titles. First however, they must get through league before hey can think about repeating. Below are my predictions on how everyone will finish in the MLL.

July 9, 2015: Just another day in the life of a recent high school graduate.

All squads, at the various levels of play, participated in three mini-games throughout the day to test their skills.

For coaches it is a chance to see how players perform, as well as how they...
