Rylee Goins assisted on a goal in the first half and scored three straight goals to start the second half to lead the La Salle girls soccer team to a 12-0 victory against Granger on Monday in a SCAC-EWAC league match.
After watching the weather turn around this past weekend, with warm winds blowing the ice off of the local lakes, it’s time to start thinking about doing some fishing.
It was 30 years ago this week that a young man with writing aspirations wandered into the offices of the Yakima Herald-Republic and pitched an idea to then-city editor Spencer Hatton, about writing a column for the paper that focused on hunting, fishing and other outdoor endeavors.
Last week was a good week for fishing. The weatherman cooperated for the most part, and thanks to some friends who extended the invites, four out of six days were spent on the water.

Brian Holtzinger recorded a hole-in-one on the 16th hole at Yakima Elks last Saturday.
Many anglers, hunters, campers and other outdoor enthusiasts look forward to this time of year, because it is when all the different sportsmen shows in the Northwest get underway. The shows are anticipated and welcomed as a respite to the sometimes never-ending winter, when there is just not…
Through most of the year the gray partridge moves unseen through the bunchgrasses on the higher ridges surrounding Yakima. Winter snow makes it harder for this “chicken” to hide and only then does it become much easier to spot.

Just like that we are back to winter. While most of us enjoyed the few 50-degree days of a week or two ago, there is a group of anglers who are quite happy to see the new snowfalls and the mercury dropping in the thermometers.

I have never been accused of being overly bright. In fact, a few teachers in my past may have willingly confirmed my lack of smarts. I don’t remember the marks I received in grade school as being anything to excite my parents, making them believe their son might become a surgeon or an astron…

Surely this diving duck rates as one of the snazziest birds of our region with its artistic black-and-white patterns. It resides in south-central Washington all year, but changes its habitat through the seasons.
Jim Gilbert certainly isn't the only person to describe his hometown of San Diego as an oasis.
As the year quickly winds down, it is going to be really nice to have 2020 in the rear-view mirror. That being said, even with all the pandemic craziness, many of us enjoyed some fun and successful days in the outdoors this year.
Over the years I have heard some funny stories about dogs partaking uninvited in the holiday goodies at Christmas time. Left alone in the house where cookies, candies and other baked goods sit tantalizingly close by on a table or kitchen counter, or so the stories go, the family pooch figure…
Just a quick reminder to all you last-minute shoppers, we are eight days away from Christmas, which means there are seven shopping days left. Now, I know that some of you — and when I say you, I mean us, because I am definitely a last-minute shopper — still have plenty of time to get somethi…
