For the first time in the history of sports medicine, an accurate way to quickly test for concussions is under development, and Feather River College’s athletes are helping with the research.

FRC athletics, picked as the only college athletic program involved in the study, is participating with the Tahoe Institute for Rural Health Research on developing a high-tech way of testing for concussions. Currently, tests done on the sidelines to assess a head injury can produce inconclusive or even false results.

Why in the heck doesn’t California do this? I live in Grass Valley and Interstate Highway 49 is always being widened, but never does the work include game fencing or game “underpasses.” I have never seen or read any information coming from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife recommending game fencing along California highways.

Golf Results for the week of 7/25/2014

Mt. Huff
Golf Tournament

Under a blazing hot July sun, a large group of golfers turned out for the Mt. Huff Two-Person Best Ball Tournament that was held on July 12. After a 1 p.m. tee-off in 96-degree weather, three teams scored prize money.

First place prize winners were Gary Metzdorf and Tom Rogers, who were smokin’ hot to say the least!

Second place recognition went to the red-hot combo of Mike Ingle and Dick Grace.

In third place came the toasty duo of David Smuts and John Bowen.

Old Beezlebub didn’t show up for the competition because he thought it was too hot!
