When Gold Beach freshman wrestler Jade Piper was in third grade, a moment of inspiration overcame her.

That was the first time she witnessed her cousin, former four-time state champion  and Gold Beach graduate Shawnee Wallace, wrestle live and in-person.

“In third grade I watched her wrestle and that inspired me to wrestle,” said the 145-pounder. 

She now has something in common with her decorated relative — both are state champions.

Over one million kings expected in KMZ in 2015

Bob Webb from O’Brien, Oregon, put the hurtin’ on some large lingcod while fishing with some friends out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Monday.

This year, at least 1,298,600 adult Chinook are expected to be finning their way through the ocean in the KMZ, otherwise known as the Klamath Management Zone, an area that spans from Humbug Mountain, Oregon, to Horse Mountain, California. And when the season opener finally arrives, you can expect plenty of action out of the three main ports that are included in the KMZ — the Port of Brookings Harbor, Del Norte Harbor in Crescent City and the port of Humboldt Bay in Eureka.

Thus says the 2015 Preseason Report 1 for ocean salmon abundance, a document that finally hit the home page of the PFMC’s website Thursday evening. At the bare minimum, ocean salmon fishermen can look forward to a season that is at least as good as that of 2014.


Prep football rule changes focus on minimizing risk

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — In its ongoing effort to minimize the risk of injury in high school football, the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Football Rules Committee expanded the provisions of unnecessary roughness to include contact with a defenseless player.

This revision in Rule 9-4-3g was one of six rules changes recommended by the Football Rules Committee at its January 23-25 meeting in Indianapolis. These changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

The revised rule now reads, “No player or non-player shall make any contact with an opponent, including a defenseless player, which is deemed unnecessary or excessive and which incites roughness.”
