Anglers gear up for 4th

Attention all would-be fishermen: July 4 is a free fishing day. Anyone who wishes to try the sport without the cost of a fishing license may do so. All other regulations must be observed and it’s a good time to get out with an experienced mentor. Who knows, you may get hooked.

Port Authority: Coke teaching, working way to big club

Guy Dossi / Union Democrat:Phil Coke delivers a pitch in the eighth inning Tuesday for the Stockton Ports.
 The Oakland Athletics Single-A affiliate, the Stockton Ports, embrace everything that is special about minor league baseball. From the beer batter and cheap tickets, to the dizzy bat race and expensive nachos, the Ports are a classic example of the minor leagues. They do, however, have something major in their mitts. Major League pitcher Phil Coke has joined the Ports until the A’s need his services in Oakland.

Summer Swings

Golfers got out early Tuesday morning at Mountain Springs Golf Club to avoid boiling temperatures in the afternoon. Dick Chimenti, of Twain Harte, putts from the fringe on the 13th hole.

Phil Coke signs deal with As

Phil Coke has come home. Or at least as close to home as he can to play professional baseball.
The Tuolumne County native agreed to a minor league deal this weekend with the Oakland Athletics and reported to the A’s advanced Single-A affiliate Stockton where he has already been in action.

Cool competition

The Tuolumne County Aquatics swimmers have found the best way to beat the heat - stay in the pool. But by staying in the water, the swimmers have gotten faster and are setting the lanes on fire, and setting new standards.
