Mike Bloomberg does his best to bolster the Paper Industry!

Mr. Bloomberg has been horrible in the debates, so he is saturating the country with TV, Radio, Newspaper and Mailers. He must be out to break all spending records for a marginal, at best, candidate. Sure has made for an interesting election cycle. And no, I did not vote for Mike.

But I admit he must be a boon to the paper industry!

123 Bald Eagles chillin at Trinity Lake last weekend!

Tom Stienstra of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote about 123 Bald Eagles at Trinity lake last week. I don't know how abnormal that is from decades past but that is awesome for right now! Shasta Lake also has higher populations. Any observers for Ruth Lake?

Best CR Basketball Team of All Time? Maybe. 15 all time CR players.

This is a weird CR Basketball team led by first year coach Ryan Bisio. They have 4 Freshman starters from last year's Fortuna Huskies squad with Sophomore Thomas Nelson filling out the starting lineup from Arcata High. All of the starters can handle the ball and shoot three pointers. Zach Claus has great court vision and is a very dependable point guard. They seem to have problems closing defensively down low, and lack a serious low post game. They play a kind of a lackadaisical controlled chaos type of ball. Very enjoyable to watch.   

Only two players off the bench play significant time, Freshmen Isaac Puzz and Anthony Stubbs from McKinleyville. Puzz is shooting nearly 47% from 3 point land and plays high energy. Stubbs was trying to be a post up target to no avail. Nice to see so many locals.

This team has a chance to go 22-4 going into the playoffs! Good to see big crowds at the CR gym. Easy to get in and out of.

Isaac Puzz
