Every season has its sports; the changing colors of an approaching winter in Plumas County generally (excluding skiers and their mountain-bound schussing) means taking the action indoors as the temperatures drop, the snow falls and the hoop dreams of Feather River College basketball players grow in intensity.

The men’s program at FRC has been led by head coach Randy Rick since 1999. In that first year he put together a 25-5 record and brought home the first Golden Valley Conference championship for the previously floundering teams.

Under Rick’s tutelage FRC has won six Golden Valley Conference championships and has turned out more Division 1 players than any team in the conference. Four former Eagles currently play professionally overseas internationally. Seven former players are now high school basketball head coaches while one player was drafted by the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the community college level.

That heart, which every team strives to achieve in addition to basketball fundamentals, is what head coach Haley White believes her team has in spades going into the 2014-15 season.

Waterfowl decoys

Question: With waterfowl season approaching, I was wondering if you could clarify Regulation 507 regarding duck decoys that move. That regulation specifies moving wings or blades are prohibited until after Nov. 30, but I cannot find a prohibition regarding motor-powered decoys that simulate swimming (clamp-on propeller), or water movement to simulate feeding (magnet type) or battery-powered jerk string. In short, are only moving-wing decoys prohibited during the first six weeks of the season?
