Shooting birds on the ground, in water is unsportsmanlike, dangerous

Ethics of shooting birds

Question: Is it lawful to shoot a bird that is on the water, or if I’m field hunting, to shoot a bird that is standing on the ground? I do not consider it sporting, but I was party to a group of hunters that took part in the above actions. Just curious what the official word is on this.

Local lifters Gary McFarland and Dee Vagjrt were two of almost 600 lifters represented from across the USA and several other countries in Las Vegas last week at what was the largest power lifting championship meet ever held.

Representing Team Nor-Cal Power, McFarland and Vagjrt along with nine other lifters from the team made a very strong showing at the event.

Vagjrt, 57 of Quincy competed in his first world championships, weighing in at 145 pounds and completed all three lifts by bench-pressing 205 pounds, 225 pounds and a new personal record of 236 pounds. He also took first place in the Men’s 148 open division class where he competed with lifters much younger than him.

When rivals clash, great basketball tends to happen.

The clash between the Quincy Lady Trojans and the Lady Volcanoes of Chester proved that point last week as the two met in Quincy — and the Trojans fought back hard to win the game, 42-41, on a buzzer-beating three-point shot by Brooke Potter.

The Trojans led by as many as 12 points in the first half of the game, thanks mostly to the stout offensive and defensive output of Kaylin Henderson, who alone put up 10 of Quincy’s 22 points in the half. Fellow senior Jasmin Sherman scored five points on two buckets and a free throw as well in the first 30 minutes. Add a comment

The everlasting rivalry between the Portola Tigers and the Quincy Trojans is alive and well — and it gave birth to a “W” in the win-loss column for the Tigers as they squeaked past Quincy, 65-62, in the headline match of the 2014 Tiger Classic on Saturday night.

Both teams came into the game at 2-0, with Quincy defeating Biggs, 71-31, and Modoc, 73-53, while Portola bested the same two teams on 68-37 and 50-36 final scores, respectively.

From the outset the game was Portola’s to lose as it ran up as high as an eight-point lead in the opening eight minutes. Quincy was able to recover just a bit and pulled to within five by the end of the first period. Add a comment

Chester also had three individual champions in 126-pound Silas Lagroue, 172-pound Javier Contreras and 220-pound Tony Rogers, who also received recognition as Outstanding Heavyweight Wrestler of the tournament for throwing opponent Tristen Osborne, from Modoc, to his back in the last seconds of the match.
