Twenty years ago, on May 19, 1990, the "old" Tony Dominguez returned to the ring - which meant he didn't stay there very long. The professional boxer from Manteca only needed two solid connections with his powerful left hand to send Canada's Allan Harper crashing to the canvas in the first round of the 152-pound main event at the Stockton Civic Auditorium. Harper didn't get up in time to beat the count and Dominguez earned his 10th straight pro victory. The stunning win thrilled the heavily pro-Dominguez crowd, which had wondered whether the 27 year-old still had the ...
Over the last few years I have seen increasing numbers of wild pigs while out on my outdoor excursions. As I understand it, wild pigs weren't very common in California until William Randolph Hearst imported some Russian Wild Boar to stock his private game preserve at Hearst Castle.

Seventy years ago, on May 10, 1940, Coach Larry Siemering's fighting Manteca High Buffaloes were back in the thick of the Modesto Sub-league pennant chase as they downed the Oakdale High nine, 9-2, at the Almond City. Bill Blodgett hurled steady ball for the Green and White and gave up only six hits to the Mustangs. He struck out 10 and walked three.

I grew up flyfishing for trout. I thought almost everyone fished for trout that way. Oh, I used worms & minnows beneath a bobber when Dad took us out pan fishing in the Delta or a local farmpond. But as far as trout were concerned, I never used anything but flies until I was in my late teens. There is a mystique that flyfishing is very difficult and takes years of practice.
