A proposal that would allow Los Molinos High School to play eight-man football in 2015 is being considered by California Interscholastic Federation Northern Section officials, even though enrollment at the campus is far greater than the limit allowed by the athletic agency.

In the Northern Section, schools with an enrollment of more than 150 students are required to play 11-man football. At Los Molinos, the enrollment is 189 students — more than 25 percent over the limit. Add a comment

Habitat issues biggest factor in California pheasant decline

Question: Wild pheasants in the Sacramento Valley have been in steep decline for many years and very little effort, if any, is being made to help this once-abundant game bird make a comeback. Improved habitat conditions, a reduced season and lowered bag limits could help them recover. What was the Fish and Game Commission thinking when they raised the limit and extended the season to what it is today?

The Quincy Trojans boys’ basketball team win-loss record achieved dominance over all other Plumas County teams last week as head coach Mike Woodlee’s squad edged Chester 62-61 on the road and took a 10-6 overall record.

Quincy led the Volcanoes for nearly the entire game; at the halftime buzzer, the Trojans had opened up a 12-point lead thanks in great part to a 13-point run by Brady Rick and buckets from Jake Rick, Crowe Herbertson-Deemer, Erik Schwartz and Tyler Hartline. Add a comment
