Everyone expected a good game last Friday as Portola ran out onto Chester’s field, and no one was disappointed. Chester lost the championship to Portola last year, but took its revenge Nov. 8 by beating the Tigers 35-26.

The Tigers brought their signature toughness to the game, but in the end, the Volcanoes’ speed and decisive execution won them the game.

The game was pretty even through the first half, with both teams’ defense controlling the field. Each team managed to score twice in the half, however. Chester came out swinging in the second half and scored one more touchdown than Portola to take the win.

Fall bite continues at local lakes

Even if you’ve been fishing for three hours and haven’t gotten anything except poison ivy and sunburn, you’re still better off than the worm.

The fishing may be winding down for the season, but don’t put your gear away just yet. The fall bite is on and it is not going away anytime soon. Fish seem to sense the turning of the seasons and right now they are on a feeding frenzy trying to load up on nutrition to carry them through the leaner winter months.

The fishing season on local streams and rivers closes Nov. 15, but the lakes should continue in high gear for a while longer. Lake Davis and Lake Almanor are attracting the most attention right now, especially with fly fishers.

Wanton waste definition

Question: Is there a place in the regulations that talks about what I’ve heard hunters call “want and waste”? Can you point me in the right direction for the regulations if such a regulation even exists? The question comes up because my hunting partners and I often argue about what is and is not considered edible on a deer. Could I get a ticket because I do not eat the lungs or the liver or heart? Some people I know feel the ribs are not even worth eating.What is the definition of waste? I’ve heard someone say 30 percent can be left in the field but I’ve never seen what the regs say about the specifics of what you could possibly get a ticket for not taking home to eat.
