Mountain Fire’s effect on wildlife

The Mountain Fire’s blackening of a large portion of the wilderness caused many animals to lose their habitats last month. Small burrowing animals can sometimes escape the flames by going underground, said Dr. Jennifer Gee, director of the University of California’s James San Jacinto Mountains Reserve. When they emerge after the fire, those who survive […]

Stone among three seeking state Senate

Steele fourth at Reno-Tahoe

Steele fourth at Reno-Tahoe

Brendan Steele got his game back big time at the Reno-Tahoe Open outside of Reno, Nevada. The native Idyllwilder shot 71-70-65-72 – 278, but more important for this tournament was his Modified Stableford score of 5-8-17-3 — 33, which was good enough for outright fourth place, his first top-5 and second top-10 finish of the […]

Steele up and down in Canadian Open

When Brendan Steele went 70-74 to miss the cut in the John Deere Classic last month, there was a tangible reason: Just before the start of the second round he backed off the practice putting green and stepped in a hole, wrenching his back.
