Nice pose. . .

THIS MULE DEER BUCK posed nicely for photographer Lea Huetteman this week. The photographer has been very successful in getting great pictures of outstanding bucks all year. That might be making some hunters a little jealous. But for Thanksgiving week, it's nice to have the deer alive and well. He apparently wasn't too concerned about Lea and her camera.

Braves push Tigers to the edge, losing 27-20

Modoc pushed the Portola Tigers to the edge Friday night, just coming up short 27-20. Portola, the number one seed in the CIF North Section Division Five Playoffs will host number two Fall River in the championship game Wednesday.
The Braves were seeded fifth and whipped Etna 37-0 in their opening playoff game.
“We played really well, we destroyed their line throughout the game, but their back busted two long runs for touchdowns in the second quarter,” said Coach Shaun Wood. “Once he got through, we couldn’t catch him. He was for real.”
Modoc opened the game with a 6-0 lead when Tyler Doss took the ball over from the one after a good drive. But Portola scored 20 points in the second period to lead 20-6 by halftime. Neither team scored in the third period and Modoc cut the score to  20-13 in the fourth and Portola added another score to lead 27-20 before Modoc scored its final touchdown with about a minute left in the game to put the score at 27-20.
