The Bear River Bruin's football team was not a very good host to Union Mine on Friday night as they scored at will and beat the tar out of their guests. The final score was 35-8.

I predicted a 21-20 final where Bear River (1-0) would win. I knew the Bruins defense was solid at stopping the run but I had no idea they were capable of dropping 35 points on a well known football program like they did on Friday night.

Next up for the Bruins, they will travel to Woodland where they will take on the Wolves (0-2).


The Miners delivered early and often as they dropped the hosting Grant Pacers by a whopping 37-7. The score at the half was 30-0 so as you can imagine there was a lot of screaming and cheering during the barrage.

The Pacers turned the ball over  five times in the game while NU gave up none. The game played out with the Miners leaving the Pacers not knowing what happened to they as they got run over, passed over and down right dominated. These were rumored to be two of the best teams in the Sacramento area. It is safe to say Grant is not all that, NU on the other hand could be.

Next week the Miners travel to Sheldon High School where they will take on Pleasant Grove, who are also rumored to be one of the better teams in the area. Time will tell.

The basis for this Deal of the Day is not based on price but on rarity. 

This almost once in a lifetime offering is a 2 bedroom 2 bath and is over 1500 sq. ft.. The wooded lakefront lot is 4.45 acres on the bank of Fuller Lake. I have fished here many times and often with great success. The lake does freeze over in the winter and the roads and gates are locked. If you have snowmobiles then it is a year around hideout. The house is priced at $849,000 and has been on the market for 89 days without a price reduction. Properties like this are very hard to find so don't expect much of a discount as this is not a short sale, REO or foreclosed property. If you have been looking for something like this then set the hook and reel it in before it gets off the hook and swims away.

The most popular fly fishing lakes in Nor Cal because it is very close to Sacramento and the Bay Area. It is stocked with planters but also has a population of wild trout as well. It has water coming into the north end from Bowman Lake via an under ground pipe which helps keep it fresh throughout the summer. The stream bottom follows the north-east side of the lake. The north-east corner also has a couple shallow flats that drop off into deep water with large tree stumps. The south-east corner of the lake drops off to some seep water. The south-west has some nice flats that drop off into some nice deeper water which flows to the dam. The first boat launch is located at the south-west corner at the west side of the dam. The north-west corner more medium depth water, 10' or so. Most of the west side is somewhat shallow and the majority of the east side drops off quickly. There are only two main access points to the lake. The first parking lot and boat launch(float tube launch) has a public restroom(nice pit toilet) and is located there near the dam. This parking area is the first thing you see once you arrive. The other boat launch is part of a nice day use area located at the north-west side of the lake. This day use area (DUA) has more parking, two bathrooms, picnic benches, barbecues and two bathrooms. 

The boat launch is also paved and accessible by vehicles unlike the first parking area. The entrance to the
north-west day use area is hard to find. The dirt road to the DUA is on the right side of main road and hard to see. After you pass the first parking area it is about 3/4 mile up the main road.

The listing agent describes the property as...
Spacious and comfortable Fuller Lake front home with 300 +/- feet of frontage on the lake! The home and deck overlook the lake and surrounding area and offer 2bd 2ba, plus a loft that could be a bedroom, has 1,539 sqft, and sits on a forested 4.45 acre parcel of pines, cedars and firs. Other features include vaulted ceilings, two wood stoves, shared well and generator, solar panels, you are the last home on the road and your neighbor to the east is PG&E land. This home is being sold completely furnished and also includes a fifth wheel trailer under a shed roof, 14ft aluminum boat, 2 snowmobiles, canoe, paddle boat, a dock and so much more! Hard to find a home on a high country lake anymore until now! Come and see this one before it's gone!

Recently a client asked me if there was a property to rent for a weekend in Nevada County which could house eight people and has a river, lake or pond which holds fish. I asked around and found the perfect property for them. Click here to view, BASS KICKIN' CABIN --- BILADEAU COTTAGE VACATION RENTAL in Penn Valley.

The owners describe the property as...

Make your next Vacation Get Away, the Sierra Foothills of California.  This peaceful two bedroom Log Home on an open 10 acre park like setting with a private 2-1/2 acre lake should be your next destination.  At an elevation of 1500 feet the cabin is within 1 hour of all the recreation that the California Sierra Nevada Mountains and Sacramento Valley can provide.  Situated near Grass Valley and Nevada City, fishing, hunting, boating, snow skiing and all the Gold Country Tourist Attractions are just a few minutes away.

Click here for an Arial view of the property.

In addition to accommodations, Biladeau Cottage offers Barbless Catch & Release trophy bass fishing.  For a "Pay to Play" fee per rod, fishing on site at our 2-1/2 acre pond is available. A California Fishing License is NOT required.  Five pound bass are not uncommon, along with 1-pound Blue Gill and 20-pound Catfish.  During the winter months 3-pound Rainbow Trout are active.  Bass fishing is at its peak from March through June and late September through early November.  Blue Gill and Catfish are abundant during the summer months.  Fly Fishing is preferred but barbless spin fishing is also very productive.  No live bait is allowed. 100% of the water is within easy casting for an experienced angler.  Float Tubes are permitted and a peddle boat is available. During the moonlit summer and fall nights surface poppers and plugs produce dramatic results.  A covered dock on the pond allows evening BBQs and dinners in a beautiful setting.   With electricity, hot and cold running water, refrigerator and table for 10, the dock is an evening favorite.

Bear River's Junior Varsity volleyball team falls to Folsom in the three sets on Thursday night and their overall record moves to 1-1.
Bear River trailed early in the first game 22~8 but was able to put together a late game rally at 22~12 but fell 25~16.

The Lady Bruins looked like they were going to go home early in the second game  as the trailed 8-2. The fought their way back to take their first lead at 12-11 and kept their intensity as they pulled out a 25-17 win.

The third and final game we to the visiting Bulldogs as the jumped out to a 5-0 lead and Bear river never recovered falling 15-7


Folsom jumped out to a 16~7 lead in first game as the Lady Bruins had nine service errors as they gave game one away 25-14.

Bear River came out for the second game with more energy and stayed close at 10~8 but Folsom's serving moved the score to 15-9. The home team got their serving together to close it to 15-13. The Bulldog coach called timeout which iced the hot server for the Bruins. The energy moved to Folsom for a 19~14 lead. 

The Bruins did put together a small run to close the gap at to 21~16 until a lack of communication allowed the ball to hit the floor two consecutive times as the freshman team fell 25~19.


The Miners have started the season with a bang. They are 1-0 with their victory over McQueen of Reno 27-10 as well as ranked a #13 in the maxpreps rankings and # 4 in the Sacramento Bee polls and Cal-High Sports has Grant at No. 4 (from 15) and Nevada Union No. 5 (from 14) in their polls.

Read more here:

That sounds like the makings of a great team, but wait. This week they travel to Sacramento where they will go toe to toe with archival Grant.

Touchdown Productions NU vs McQueen 2012 replay

The Pacers are ranked at #9, four positions better than Nevada Union and the Miners will be required to play in a very hostile environment. Grant's head coach Mike Alberghini will be looking for revenge as the Miners defeated the Pacers for the City Championship as well as in the Section Final game in 2005. The teams have not played since there was a realignment in league play. The Miners now play in the Sierra Foothill League and Grant plays in the Delta Valley League.

I went back and viewed the 2005 game, thank you to Touchdown Productions. The game was held at Hooper Stadium prior to the turf and it was a mud pit. The Miners won the game due to their line of scrimmage play.

This season the front line is not as dominating but their line-backing core is just as good if not better. The Miner's running game is diverse and the quarter back is very consistent.

In game one Grant played Paradise to a 28-7 victory this past Friday night. Maxpreps has very little information about that contest so it looks like Coach Alberghini is withholding information. I did take a look at the stats of Paradise and one thing that jumped out at me was they ran the 56 times and only threw the ball eight times.

Mike Alberghini - photo news10
Grant also only lists 21 players on their roster, which if that is the case, by the fourth quarter the Miners could be the fresher team and pull away for the victory.

If either team plans to be in the discussion for a state championship, this is a must win game! While coaches always talk one game at a time. We all know their is a temptation to look ahead, this is one game that cliche holds water.

Prediction - NU 14 GRANT 10

Be sure to check back for my game summery as well as Touchdown Productions replay of "The Game of the Week." I will be back for another week along side Jim Adams and Paul Brown, so I guess I did an alright job for a rookie. Thank you Jim and Paul for the support!

The Bear River Junior Bruins' Junior Peewee team won their first game 32-0 over Del Campo but were blown out in week two 26-0 by Capitol Christian. 

"The difference between week one and week two, sometimes the kids show up to play ball and sometimes they seem as if they missed their bowl of Cheerios, coach John Dzioba said. "In my opinion the Jr. PeeWees are the most athletic, sound minded, hard hitting and kind hearted boys in the whole league.  Last Saturday was just not our day."

Jeff Jenkins
Dzioba also stated, as the defensive coordinator, I changed our defense last week from a 4-3 to a 4-4.  That might have been too much for our nine and ten year olds to handle in one week.  We are going back to basics in the next two weeks and back to our 4-3.  We also had many missed tackles due to poor tackling techniques.  We will have to re-visit the tackling drills and hone our skills.

All teams are off due to the holiday weekend so I asked Dzioba what he planned to do with two weeks of practice to get ready for Bradshaw Christian.

Jeff Jenkins
"Bradshaw Christian is a larger school and from watching game film, I would guess they have anywhere from 30-35 kids," Dzioba said.  "That is almost twice the numbers we have, so they will have fresh legs throughout the game.  We will have to work heavily on conditioning to be able to go the full four quarters.  Many of our kids play the whole game on both sides of the ball and never come out."

Jeff Jenkins
On any given team there is always a player who comes into training camp with high expectation and there are those who exceed the expectation. "The most surprising player on the roster this year, to me, is Colton Jenkins," Dzioba said. "He is the most athletic, tactically sound, heads up and mature player on the field.  He has single handedly saved at least four touchdowns in the past two games as safety, has filled the spot as quarter back and team leader, and scored three touchdowns in our first outing.  Colton is a truly kind boy, and pleasure to coach."

The Junior PeeWee squad is currently in second place in the standings after two weeks of play behind Roseville and knotted with Granite Bay, Lincoln and Grant. This is the same team which played for the Championship of the Sierra Valley USA Football League this past season.


If you are looking for a job or technical training NCI computer school maybe a great place to start. Their testimonials make it sound almost to good to be true. Please view the video for further information.

Upon viewing the information contained in the video please let me know if you plan to enroll at NCI. I will try to set up a car pool group if need be.


If you have spent anytime fly fishing I'm sure you will get a kick out of this video as you either said some of these strange things or surely you have been asked. The actors are so bad they are fairly funny. Beware there is a little swearing.


If you have a garden then you may have been picking the fruits of your labor lately as I have. The beautiful tomatoes which were brought into the house attrracted a lot of fruit flies.

Fruit flies live for 8-10 days. In that time, females lay around 500 eggs, using rotting fruit or vegetables as their nest. As awful as that sounds, once you pick your garden's fruits they begin to rot.

Fruit flies feed on decaying fruits and vegetables. They are generally found when the fruits and vegetables are picked from the plant which they normally grow.  Fruit flies are commonly found in homes, restaurants and other facilities where food is processed. They are especially attracted to garbage that has just been sitting around. Fruit flies are found in unsanitary conditions like garbage dumps and trashcans. When they are around, humans can become very sick.

  • Keep your home clean.
  • Remove kitchen trash every day and keep kitchen counters clean.
  • Immediately remove rotting food from your home.
Fruit flies can invade your home through any small crack or opening. They have good smellers and can smell fruit and other desirable foods from long distances. They seek warm and moist areas that have organic matter in which they can lay their eggs. They will take advantage of any damaged fruit skin and can also be found around kitchen sinks, garbage, and drains. The best combat against fruit flies is to remove food sources in the home for them which include food waste, dirty counters and dishes, clogged drains, etc.

Bear River's freshman volleyball team's Foundation game on Tuesday afternoon was against Forest Lake Christian which was held at Jack McCrory Gymnasium on the campus of Bear River High School. The game went to the Bruins 2 to 1. Forest Lake jumped out to an early lead against the much larger school to take game one 25-8 but the Bruins bounced back in game two winning by a score of 25-11 and kept the momentum going into the third and final set winning 15-3.

Bear River's coach got all the girls into the game.

Bear River's Varsity, Junior Varsity and Freshman teams will be back on the court on Thursday when they host Folsom. The Freshman game is scheduled for 4 p.m. and the others will follow.


Bear River High School's football team will take on the Union Mine on Friday night for their first game of the 2012-13 season.

I hear the Bruins looked strong in their scrimmage with Mesa Verde this past week while Union Mine got handed their lunch falling to El Camino by a score of 49-0. Union Mine turned the ball over four times, three of which were interceptions and one was a fumble. They also ran the ball 43 times and only threw the ball seven. They relied on a ground attach with seven different rushers including their leading ball carrier Scott McIntyre from the quarterback spot. Union Mine failed to reach 200 yards of total offense.

Cody Heard photo courtesy
The Bruin's are carrying a roster of 40 players which is more players than in recent years while UM comes to BR with a roster of 33. The buzz out of the Mesa scrimmage was running back Cody Heard  (5'-8", 156 lbs) who was said to be running and hitting very hard. One person who attended the scrimmage stated he plays much like Bear River graduate Cole White. Another player being discussed was senior quarterback Dillon Smith (5'-11", 164 lbs). They liked his decision making skills and the strength of his arm, but also the way he eluded Mesa's tacklers which gave him more time to throw down field.

Bear River's defense which has been solid in most years was said to be ready for the challenge. Reports stated the team is small but it has good speed and will shuffle fresh players into the game often.

Prediction Bear River wins 21-20.


Joshua Sandstrom speaks to Nevada County Online at the Courtyard Suits in Grass Valley, CA.

On Tuesday the Nevada County Online group had the pleasure of listening to Joshua Sandstrom in the conference room at the Courtyard Suites in Grass Valley who educated the 40 or so people of the group on the basics of E-Commerce. The group is made up local business owners as well as entrepreneurs
The groups website had this to say prior to the meeting
To sell online, you need more than just a shopping cart.  Bring ecommerce to your business by learning the most important and relevant platforms, features and options, necessary for success.  Joshua will simplify the complex choices by comparing some of the best software options available today.
Joshua Sandstrom is an entrepreneur, web designer, and online business consultant.  He has several years of experience working first hand with e-commerce solutions including: Zen-Cart, Virtue Mart, PayPal, EBay, Etsy, Ecwid and most recently Magento Community and Magento GO.  Joshua also does consulting and development work in Joomla 2.5 and has a well rounded sense of Social and Email marketing along with Search Engine Optimization.  Like that wasn't enough, he is an avid environmentalist and skilled organic gardener.
This class will be focused on the benefits and differences of the most common and relevant kinds of e-commerce platforms available.  We will look at what is actually involved in the setup of an online e-commerce solution. 
My take away from the event was technology can save you time as well as make you money, but it is always better to pay for someone to setup your web page with an E-solution and show you how it works than to build it yourself. If you are in the business of running a business then do just that and hire someone to do what they do, such as build an on-line presence for you. If you want to do it yourself then feel free but I know my limitations. I wouldn't know the first place to begin especially when technology folks start using terms like CSM, SOI and programming.
The event was organized and hosted by Machen McDonald and Carla Bonetti who ran a great event. The event was recorded by Cheryl Noble of Noble 1 Productions. It was stated the video of the event will be uploaded for interested viewers to view Sandstrom's speech.

The Bear River Junior Bruin's Junior Midget coach Jeff Danieli took a moment out of his Sunday to share with me how his team's 44-0 win over Capital Christian on Saturday transpired. 

The Bruins offense tallied 286 total yards, 66 passing yards and 220 running yards. On the other side of the ball the defense gave up only one first down and gave up a total of -33 yards. "that is right they gave up negative 33 yards, an amazing game for our guys." Danieli said. "They played like Champs. Capital Christian is a great team , the sportsmanship between both teams was amazing. Having a team humble in victory and defeat, they met in the middle of the field after the game and showed me what this sport is all about, teamwork and sportsmanship."

Bear River Junior Bruin's next Game is against a very good Bradshaw Christian football team on September 8th as they have a bye for the Labor Day holiday weekend.


These are the requests presented to the Western Gateway Parks and Rec by the SkyCatz. All items were approved.

TO: Western Gateway Park and Recreation District Board Members
FROM: Shaun Long, President, Sky Catz Disc Golf Club
SUBJECT: Proposed Disc Golf Course Improvements and Maintenance Projects
DATE: July 18, 2012
ACTION REQUESTED: Review and approval of the proposed Disc Golf Course
improvements and maintenance projects.
BACKGROUND: The goal of the Sky Catz Disc Golf Club (SCDGC) it to promote the sport of
disc golf through education and outreach, hosting club weeklies, clinics, club events, fund
raisers, and Professional Disc Golf Association tournaments.

The club works cooperatively with the Western Gateway Park & Recreation District and the City of Grass Valley to maintain and improve two of Northern California’s best courses, the Hanging Oak Disc Golf Course at Western Gateway Park in Penn Valley and the Condon Park Disc Golf Course in Grass Valley.
On July 14, 2012, the SCDGC Course Committee met at Western Gateway Park to review and
discuss proposed disc golf course improvements and maintenance projects to be submitted to the Western Gateway Park and Recreation District Board for review and approval. Disc golf course improvements and maintenance projects will be funded and implemented by the SCDGC. SCDGC is formally requesting approval to make the following course improvements and conduct the following maintenance activities:
Disc Golf Course Improvements (Within Existing Course Footprint)

• Install a new anchor sleeve on Hole #3 approximately 60-80 ft to left of the moat. An anchor sleeve is a metal tube that is cemented into the ground with a tab for a padlock that allows for an alternate basket position. An example is shown below.

Sky Catz Disc Golf Club
• Install a new anchor sleeve on Hole #7 approximately 80-100 ft beyond the straight pin
position. Part of this improvement will include clearing some of the brush, which will
also reduce fire danger, and remove three to four small oak trees about 6 inches in
• Install a new anchor sleeve on Hole # 8 approximately 80 -100 ft beyond the right pin
position and clear some brush and blackberries.
• Install a new anchor sleeve on Hole #11 approximately 30-40 ft beyond the long straight
pin position and clear some brush.
• Widen the tee pad on Hole #4 to make throwing to the far right pin position safer.
• Extend the tee pad on Hole #9 to allow for a proper disc golf run-up and make throwing
safer on this hole.
• Widen the tee pad on Hole # 16 to make throwing to the far right pin position safer.
• Re-pour Hole #17 tee pad. Current tee pad has begun to get pitted and should be repoured
to make it safer.
Maintenance Projects
• Pack fill dirt or wood chips around the front and back of tee pads to eliminate or reduce
the drop-off to minimize the risk of ankle injuries as result of stepping off the tee pad
when throwing drives on all holes where applicable.
• Removal of dead oak tree towards Hole 7’s fairway. It is feared that this was diseased or
infected with bark beetles and should be removed to protect other tree in the vicinity.
• Install a brick border flush with ground around the ponds on Hole 8, 9, 11, and 14 to
clearly identify the out bounds delineation.
• Remove some of the sediment that has begun to fill in the small pond on Hole 14.
• Fill in the large pond on Hole #9 to a depth of approximately 2 ft deep with fill dirt, sand,
and then gravel. This will reduce the hazard of someone falling into the pond in attempt
to retrieve a disc and make retrieving discs from the water hazard easier.
Thank you for your consideration of the proposed improvements and maintenance projects. We
look forward to discussing this proposal with you further at your meeting on July 25, 2012.

Nice work guys!


What do you think he had two of?

The Bear River Junior Bruin team moved to 1-1 with their 38-0 win on the road at Capitol Christian on Saturday.

This past weekend, the team fell 6-0 on a extremely bad call the coach stated. "We were punting, we get the kick off and it hits their player, we recover. A flag was thrown for Roughing the kicker, Either way it should have been our ball. Refs call of the flag and White cap says 1st and ten bruins, I send out our offense, but Del Campo already had their offense on the ball and ran a play, they scored while we were setting up our offense to the ball. Refs have a 5 minute meeting and determine that they made a mistake but it was too late."

Then Bear River scored on a 30 yard run, and they threw a flag for too many people in the back field, which on tape does not show it. Then we score again after our defense strips the ball and runs it in for a touchdown, No whistle was blown. After about a 5 minute meeting the refs having a meeting they determined that it was BR's ball but no touchdown. 

"All in all the kids played wel, they made a lot of mistakes, but for the first non division game against a really good football team, we will take it." a coach stated.

Fell to Capitol Christian by a score of 26-0. The coach called it a blow out.


The PeeWee team moved to 2-0 on the season as Capitol Christian was unable to field a team.

The Bear River Junior Bruin football program will not play for two weeks as next week they have a bye.


We had Curry goat, interestingly enough goat is much like venison. Dark meat full of flavor. The jerk pork was very very good and at our table of four, it was the most sought after. The chicken curry was also good but it could have used a little more sauce. The sides were rice with a spattering of beans and a warm green salad. The pricing was good as we made it out of there for less than $10 per person.

You order at the counter and your food comes in a cardboard box. While at first I felt it was acceptable to serve the food that way but when someone at our table stated, you would think a restaurant in Nevada City would not generate this much waste. We ate in the establishment and also used plastic forks, more waste. 

The room is well lit, clean and comfortable and was busy at 7 p.m. on a Saturday night.

 The staff was friendly and helpful.

I would return and order the jerk pork or chicken as I loved it!

I don't know what Michael Jordan is talking about, these tighty whiteys do ride up!
