Tired of chores? Try looking ahead

The trick to enjoying manual labor is cluttering the mind with good thoughts. Happy Gilmore called it his, "happy place", and he was right, though the most effective are within the realm of possibility.

Thank PG&E on opening day fishing

Opening day is always special to me. Each year my primary goal is to fish all day and see no other anglers. When you consider that over two million Californians buy trout stamps and that most of them are out fishing opening day, you can appreciate my goal. In the last ten years I've only had one opening day that I've seen anyone else astream. My secondary opening goal is to catch fish. One opening day I caught no trout at all and on another, I caught only four.

1980: Joe Wickham 7th in Formula Vee racing

Ninety years ago, on April 12, 1920, Manteca started the ball season right by winning the first game they played. The game was with Escalon and while this team is not a member of the league, it is a good fast team and has won all the games played this season before this game. A large crowd turned out and cheered lustily. The score at the close stood 7 to 2 in favor of the home boys. Elmer Blodgett started off right, pitching a first class game. He pitched all of last season and was a big factor in winning ...

Perfect time to spend on the water

I don't know many bass fishermen that aren't excited about going fishing with the weather we've been having this week. All the lakes and rivers should have fish up shallow either spawning or looking to spawn. The hardest decision I have, is deciding where I want to fish! We're truly lucky to live around so many great fisheries. Last month while sitting in Jiffy Lube I overheard two gentlemen talking about fishing and living in Manteca. They both agreed that there are very few places that offer great weather and great fishing like the central valley ...

1950: Payan fans 14 batters in Buffaloes win

Eighty years ago, on April 4, 1930, the Hughson Union High nine nosed out the local Manteca High Buffaloes and won the third C.I.F. game of the season by a 12 to 11 game in Hughson. The Hughson boys were hitting the ball quite regularly, getting six runs off Fred Theiler and six off Joe Abreu, who pitched for the Mantecans. They pitched fairly good ball but were given little support in the field. In the sixth frame, the Mantecans started a rally and scored eight runs before they could be stopped. Theiler and Joe Bettencourt got three ...

Coaching, curveballs & class

I walked onto the football field for the first time as a player in 1968 and walked off for the last time as a coach in 2002. In 1998 I started sports writing with a focus on youth sports and have been doing so more or less ever since – for one paper or another.
