Minor league pitcher Trevor Miller is entering his third full year as a professional baseball player.

And his goal remains the same — to play in the Major Leagues.

“I’m trying to get up there as fast as I can,” said Miller, a former Bret Harte standout. “That’s basically it. I’ve got to keep throwing strikes.”

New Beardsley boat ramp may not touch lake this year

By Len Ackerman

For The Union Democrat

 I made a scouting trip to Beardsley Lake last week to view the water level and the new extended launch ramp. 

And it sure is a beautiful ramp and floating dock but, unfortunately, the water level is extremely low and may not reach the ramp this year. There will be some rise in level as the snow melt adds some water, but as summer approaches, more releases will be made.

For information on Beardsley, go to www.tridamproject.com, which is updated periodically and also has road access information, or call the Summit Ranger Station at 965-3434.

Strolling to victory

Sonora native Nick Waelty has always wanted to do something competitive and fun with his two children.

And in the 25th annual Sonora Sunrise Rotary Jamestown Run on Saturday, Nick captured a special moment that he will cherish forever.

The 32-year-old finished first in the 10k race at 44:17 despite pushing his two children, Charlie Waelty, 4, and Mack Waelty, 1, in a baby stroller throughout the hilly 6.2-mile course.

“It definitely was more of a struggle to be with a stroller than to be without it,” said Nick, who estimates he was pushing over 65 pounds of extra weight. “It was fun. It’s cool to include my kids in stuff like that. Hopefully, they will be into that when they get older. It’s kind of like a family thing to do.”

Bears roundup: Bears softball rally falls short in 7th

The Summerville Bears softball team made a late rally in the bottom of the seventh inning, but came up short, losing 8-7 to Golden Valley in a non-league game on Friday in Tuolumne.

With two outs and runners on first and second, Summerville slugger Sydney Owens hit a line drive to right center, but Golden Valley came up with the big play.

“The centerfielder made a great catch to end the game,” said Bears head coach Ben  Watson. “Otherwise, it was a tie or maybe the game-winning hit. The girl made a great catch.”

Dodge Ridge closes, cites lack of snow

Dodge Ridge closed for the season at the end of business Sunday due to lack of snow, according to a press release.

The Dodge Ridge Mountain Operations determined Sunday morning that additional snowfall would be required to continue with normal operations.

“Though this decision is a difficult one to make with the great conditions still available on the upper mountain, ultimately with the forecast of unseasonably warm weather and no chance of significant snowfall in the near future, we felt it was best to close,” said Dodge Ridge marketing director Jeff Hauff in a press release.
