The memorable races

The Saturday Night Races July 30 were memorable for Quincy fans. They were dedicated to the memory of Quincy firefighter Dale Lancaster. Some Quincy drivers made the evening a night to remember.

Cameron Diaz, Quincy High School quarterback, discovered he was talented in another sport. He won the Pure Mini main event in Ashley Neiman’s car. It was the first time that he had driven the car. After his victory lap he did a victory back flip. Quincy’s Chris Neiman, in his heat race, was victorious over the main event winner Richard Papenhausen. In the main event Chris did another exciting flip, only Truckee’s Russell Rosario piled on top of him. Quincy’s Chase Neiman is setting a record for blown engines as he blew up the engine in his sister’s Pure Mini. He is burning bucks like a forest fire.

July has been pleasantly, if not unseasonably, cool. Water surface temperatures have dropped to 67 degrees.

Water clarity is great at about 13.5 feet. Insect hatches continue and the pond smelt are everywhere.

These are ideal conditions for the fish. But they are a bit challenging for the angler.

The trip begins at the north end of Juniper Lake and travels west for a mile or two with a 700-foot elevation gain and loss, then levels out with some easy cross-country travel. The group will set camp at Horseshoe Lake, where great swimming is an option.

Why do fawns havegrowths on their necks and chins?

Question: Many of the fawns I am currently seeing here in Santa Barbara County appear to have growths or swelling on their necks or chin about the size of a baseball. I’ve seen this over the last several years. What’s up?
