In reading about the Plains Indians who followed the bison herds it seems that the Indians utilized almost every part of the buffalo upon which they depended for their livelihood. They ate fresh meat and then also preserved meat by drying it in the sun and by smoking it over fires. They prepared a high energy food they called pemmican by mixing buffalo fat with herbs and dried berries. Of course the Plains Indians ...

Fishing Report

I'm sure all of you are excited about the rain we've been getting this winter season. I've been keeping an eye on lake levels of our local lakes and they've all been rising. A majority of our smaller lakes are near full, while our bigger lakes like New Melones and Don Pedro are still below being fully operational. Fortunately we still have plenty of time for more rain and snowmelt runoff. Whenever water levels increase rapidly, it's important to be careful while boating. Everything that's been washed up onto shore is now floating in ...

Homecoming Heartache For Mustang Hoop Squad

With nearly standing room only at the Oakdale High School gym following the crowning of the Winter Homecoming 2016 royalty, the varsity Mustangs (1-18, 0-6) hit the court. Hosting the Lancers of East Union (10-8, 2-4), Oakdale was searching for their first Valley Oak League victory of the season. After a promising start to the game, Oakdale's confidence and offense both seemed out of sync as the Mustangs fell 70-43 to drop to 0-6 in league play.
