I have a 75-gallon fish tank at home where I have about six tropical fish. When I purchased my fish I tried to get them in pairs. Coincidentally, two of my pairs ended up spawning several times over the summer. Once the cooler weather hit, I noticed several changes occur in the tank. The first change I noticed was the once-radiant colors of my fish went pale, and their movement became very sluggish. Rarely did ...
Ten years and change ago, I made a decision I do not regret. I left home to pursue a college degree and a career away from the sprawling metropolis that is Klawock, Alaska - population 750. Long before I stood on the stage and delivered my graduation speech to a packed gym next to my 14 classmates, I had decided leaving the island was the only course that would allow me to be a part ...

The cold mornings are finally making anglers wonder where fall went. Winter fishing isn't my favorite time of year to fish for obvious reasons, but it can be made more bearable for those who come prepared for the cold. Over the years, I've created a small list of my favorite winter fishing items. I hate having cold feet and have gone through great lengths to find a solution. It was in the Army where I ...
My typical post-half or full-length marathon lines are generic. "It was awesome running down the chute then eating everything I could at the tents, just awesome." Sometimes it's not as positive. "It was pretty cool, I passed out for about a half hour under the first aid tent because I was hyponatremic, but it was pretty sweet." But for the hours during the run, the thoughts of post-race meals, wearing the Finisher Bling are usually ...
Jimmy Elam isn't just making up for lost time. He's improving it. The college senior and 2005 Sierra High alumnus is continuing tradition-rich Chico State's dominating cross country run in the California Collegiate Athletic Association and NCAA. Elam had to sit out the 2008 cross country season after transferring from Humboldt State, but his impact on the already-stacked Chico State men's team was immediately felt. He earned the CCAA Runner of the Year honor after ...

Trends work on cycles. The 80s have come and gone, then kinda came and went again; sideburns, mohawks, big hair, dyed hair, skater hair, all of it has trendy worth within a context. One thing that has not really made it back since its heyday in the mid 1800s, is the neck beard.
After every tough day of fishing the Delta I usually question my decision as to why I choose to fish there over other local bodies of water.
The Falcons won the second straight MUST title by edging Neil Hafley in a three-game thriller - 25-18, 18-25, 15-12.
The last time I went night fishing it wasn't completely dark, and I wasn't completely fishing.
Duck season opens this weekend, and this is the time of year where anglers have to be extra careful when venturing into the many flooded islands found throughout the Delta. I've learned over the years that it's easier to just leave certain areas to the hunters.
