Scholarship fund planned in memory of coach

The scholarships will be awarded annually to students from both Summerville and Sonora high schools. The award amount has not been determined but fundraisers are scheduled for next year, said Baldrige’s son, Nick Baldrige. 


Winter much wetter so far

The Mother Lode is experiencing a much wetter winter than last year, with more than 5 inches of rain since Dec. 1, but Tuolumne and Calaveras counties are still in a state of exceptional drought, according to scientists.

A “U.S. Drought Monitor” map updated this week shows most of Northern California, from north of Interstate 80 to the coast, “improved” one increment to a stage of extreme drought. The change is due to rainfall received during the storm of Dec. 11-12, said National Weather Service meteorologist Michelle Mead.
