The Amador County Recreation Agency hosted a Home Run Derby at Pioneer Park last Wednesday. ACRA runs a Men’s Softball League every Monday and Wednesday night during the summer and they figured to put on a Home Run Derby at the same time as Major League Baseball’s All-Star Home Run Derby. There were two games that night, followed by the derby. Twenty contestants signed up for the event — eight of them twice, to try to hit more home runs in their second go-around than they did the first time up. The entry fee was $20. The winner of...

The Amador County Recreation Agency held its third annual Youth Sports Fair at Amador High School last Saturday. The Youth Sports Fair is an event where kids can come to try out different sports under the supervision of an experienced coach and/or athlete. The fair is beneficial for the kids because it is an opportunity for them to try out sports without having to commit to signing up for a team, which can be expensive and time-consuming if a child ultimately decides that he or she doesn’t like the sport.

There were 13 different...

When Amador High School Vice Principal and Head Men’s Basketball Coach Paul Neville announced his departure from the Amador County Unified School District, the question arose, “Who will step in as head coach of the Amador High School basketball team?” The answer is, Kaleb Cagle, long-time assistant to Neville, will be taking over the Amador basketball program as head coach of the Buffalos.

Cagle is a 30-year-old teacher at Amador who grew up in a basketball family, watching Duke basketball teams play under his idol, “Coach K,”...

On Wednesday, the 16th, my friend, Juan, drove over from Woodland for a day of fishing. My plan was to try a little fly fishing on Red Creek, which runs out of Red Lake and meets up with the West Fork of the Carson River just west of the Hope Valley Campground.

I had heard reports of beaver dams, Brook Trout and lots of catching. For us, we only found one of the three, the beaver dams. I contribute the absence of the other two to a couple of things. One, I didn’t know this creek existed until about two weeks ago, so, obviously,...

Following years of anticipation, the Murphys Community Club (MCC) in partnership with the Angels-Murphys Rotary is about to start construction of two bocce courts as part of an extension of the much used community park.

“We have had numerous requests from individuals, groups, and service clubs to add this popular sport to our agenda of things to do in Murphys,” states MCC president Suzanne Friedman. “After extended negotiations, and meeting the rigid government requirements, the project is now ready to proceed but we will need...

The Jackson Lions Club will present its first Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Rodeo September 13 and 14, at the Amador County Fairgrounds.

“We had to dream big,” said rodeo spokesperson Todd Riebe. “The Lions’ motto is ‘We Serve.’ Every year, we raise more than $100,000 and give it all back to the community, yet it is not enough. The needs of our community have grown greater than our club’s capacity to meet them.”

The Lions knew they had to develop something with the potential of being a major fundraising project in...

For 43 seasons, the San Francisco 49ers had one address — 602 Jamestown Avenue, San Francisco, California. But with “the Stick’s” run coming to an end, a decision was made to play one final game at the stadium that was home to five Super Bowl trophies and a place we all once loved.

The last game was called, “Legends at Candlestick,” and it featured retired professionals in a game of flag football. An estimated 30,000 fans came out to see one last play and one last touchdown in this revered, and often reviled, stadium. Joe...

One of the many gifts we enjoy living in Amador County is our proximity to one of the outdoor wonders of the world — Lake Tahoe. People travel for days to visit this outdoor icon, but we can get to this largest alpine lake in North America in an hour-and-a-half. Consider these Tahoe facts: 1,645 feet deep (deepest lake in the US after Crater Lake); 22 miles long and 12 miles wide; 72 miles of shoreline; fed by 63 tributaries with only one outlet, the Truckee River. The Lake Tahoe Basin was created millions of years ago by seismic... [Read more]

Last Thursday morning, the Amador West Juniors All-Stars liked their chances of advancing to their third straight Section 6 tournament. They were in the District 15 finals, and their challenger, the Linden All-Stars, would need to beat them twice to move on.

Coach Tom Gold wanted to finish them quickly on Thursday, but Linden took a 2-0 lead and never gave it up, winning 4-1 and forcing a 9 a.m. game on the Fourth of July. Even hits by Sam Madrid and Eli Hammam, and a well-timed hit-by-pitch by Will Fraser late in the 6th inning...
