Is it legal to subsistence fish in the ocean without permission
Question: If I am in need of food for myself and family, would it be a crime to catch fish from the ocean for subsistence without a license, and if so, why? With inland waters I realize that lakes are stocked, policed and maintained and this service has to be paid for via taxes, licenses and fines. That’s understandable.

I am aware of states with coastlines having a mileage limit from shore to international waters, and the area in between is overseen by the Coast Guard. Should it not be a God-given right to fish the oceans and seas of this planet without permission from the powers that be?

The Chester Volcanoes boys’ basketball squad fought its way to an appearance in the Northern Section California Interscholastic Federation Division VI semifinals last week after beating Hayfork in 62-47 barnburner that pitted head coach Jake Simms’ No. 5 seed team against the No. 4 seed Timberjacks.

An earlier win over Princeton sent Chester nearly halfway to the Pacific Ocean, to Trinity County, to face Hayfork on Thursday, Feb. 26. Hayfork ended the season with an 11-1 record in Evergreen League standings and went 14-8 in the regular season — though Wyatt Durkin and his crew of Vols made sure there would not be another win for the Jacks.

The Lady Trojans varsity basketball squad won the 2014-15 MVL championship on Tuesday, Feb. 17, by defeating the Lady Tigers, 70-52, in Portola.

It was not easy sailing for head coach Harlon Sevier’s team throughout the entire game — after leading the Tigers 26-21 at the end of the first half, and leading by as much as 10 points in the opening minutes of the second half, the Trojans let Portola wither that lead to just one point by the end of the third period.

The Lady Trojans basketball team may have entered the Northern Section California Interscholastic Federation playoffs as the No. 3-seeded squad — but the girls’ level of play and 59-23 win against Division V tournament opener Los Molinos last week left no doubt that head coach Harlon Sevier’s group was playing at the top of its game.

After jumping out to a 31-9 halftime lead, the Trojans, led mostly in offensive output by senior Angel Garrish’s 11-point drive in the paint, took a serious slowdown as the Bulldogs held Quincy to just six points in the third period.

The Trojans stepped up their game in the fourth period, however, thanks to a blistering 16-point scoring run by the duo of Jasmin Sherman and Taylor Friden — and the equally stout defensive play of freshman Ashlyn Wingfield who, despite only being brought up to the varsity level in the past few games, managed to log four offensive rebounds, an assist and a steal.

After trailing 45-34 with six minutes left against Redding Christian at home last week, the Chester Volcanoes went on a 21-8 tear to beat the Lions on a 55-53 final score and remain undefeated in Five-Star League standings at 7-0 — though that unblemished record would fall apart days later on a stunning loss to Liberty Christian in the final game of the season.
