Soccer teams from all over northern California came to Quincy last weekend, Aug. 24 – 25, for the annual August Fest soccer tournament hosted by Quincy High School. All Plumas County high school teams attended: Quincy’s men’s and women’s team, Portola’s women’s team and Chester’s women’s team.
The men’s tournament took place at the soccer field at Quincy High while the women’s tournament was at Feather River College’s field.
On Friday, Quincy’s men’s team lost its first match to Whittel 6-0. They also lost to Butte that day 3-1. On Saturday, Quincy sprang back and claimed a victory over Squaw Valley 3-1, but lost to Shasta 1-0 later in the day.

It is late August and not surprisingly warm temperatures and smoke fill the air. It’s a typical late summer in the Sierras. The warm temperatures are not limited to the air; our local waters are nearing their seasonal high temperatures as well.
But all is not lost for the angler. Lake Almanor is warm and smoky. But the smoke has actually helped to moderate the water temperatures and the smoke is beginning to lessen. The fishing is actually quite good right now.
Q: A group of friends and I are planning to take a trip on their yacht, basically sailing up and down the coast and visiting some of the small islands along the way. A couple of us like to fish but aren’t sure what regulations will apply if we’re fishing outside state waters.
Do we have to have a fishing license if we are fishing more than three miles from shore? I’ve heard something about the coastal three nautical mile limit but want to be sure we have our ducks lined up before we launch. Thanks for your help. (Randi L.)
The runners take off amidst thunder and rain. More than 300 runners participated in the event this year.
Despite hazy smoke and ominous clouds bellowing out thunder and rain, runners from all around came out for the Running with the Bears Marathon in Greenville Saturday, Aug. 18.
The event was thrown by Mountain Circle Family Services, Inc. Mountain Circle is a private nonprofit organization that works on developing healthy family relations for foster children.
