Hand cyclists made their way around Lake Almanor on Sunday, Sept. 16, during the annual Wheel Around Lake Almanor (WALA) wheelchair endurance challenge.

WALA was started by long-time hand cyclist Randy Fossum. Fossum was injured in a motorcycle accident in 1980 which left him a paraplegic.

Not one to stay still, Fossum began hand cycling shortly after the accident.

One night, Fossum and his wife Diane Fossum were having dinner with their friends Dave and Suzie Henise. Randy told Suzie he was thinking of hand cycling around Lake Almanor and Suzie said she would accompany him.

The crowd cheered on Portola’s varsity football team as the Tigers pulled off a stunning 29-26 victory against the Upper Lake Cougars last Friday, Sept. 14.

 Portola started the game right by stopping all the drives Upper Lake made in the first quarter.

 Portola’s Ricky Lowdermilk scored the first points of the game, running the ball in for a touchdown. The first quarter ended with the Tigers up 7-0.

 Upper Lake came right back at the beginning of the second quarter. The Cougars scored a touchdown, but couldn’t convert for the extra point.

Fishing Report for the week of 9/19/2012

“Yes, there's something about fly-fishing a stream that grabs you and won't let go. I was grabbed a long time ago and I must say that I won't let go either.”

Jimmy D. Moore

 

  There is just a touch of fall in the air. The mornings are breezy and a few of the aspen at the higher elevations are showing the first signs of fall color to come.

  But as far as the fish are concerned, its still summer. The Kokanee and Brown Trout are not yet ready to spawn. And the warm surface temperatures are keeping the fish deep.
