JV soccer team defines team spirit

March 18, 2011

Soccer has been described in terms of elegance and beauty, a chess game in constant motion. Soccer is primarily a players’ game rather than a coaches’ game. It requires an almost intuitive sense of team – no huddles, no plays called in by a coach, It’s all up to the players.
Maybe it was that characteristic of the game that helped foster this year’s junior varsity girls soccer team’s spirit. The JV Lady Broncos, all 28 of them, attracted the attention of opposing teams, coaches and tournament directors during the season for their enthusiasm and spirit.

March 17, 2011

New forest boss selected

March 15, 2011

The third time appears to be the charm for Inyo National Forest, which announced last week that Ed Armenta of Arizona is slated to become its next head honcho.
Armenta, currently the district ranger of the Payson District of the Tonto National Forest, will be the third Forest Service employee to step into the forest supervisor post vacated by Jim Upchurch in September 2010.
Upchurch transferred to Coronado National Forest and two temporary replacements had filled the position until a permanent replacement – Armenta – could be named.
