The money for the scholarship is raised each year through the annual run/walk held during Railroad Days. Photo by Tiffany Williams The Willie A. Tate Memorial River Run is consistently one of the most popular events during Portola Railroad Days. Although the run is a competitive event with serious runners, avid walkers are encouraged to enter as well. This year the Tate Run's most senior and serious walker has already sent in his registration -- Louis Thomas, of Quincy, 96, has been a loyal and honored participant for over 10 years. The event commemorates Willie Tate, teacher, coach and mentor to the students of Portola High School, who died in 2000. Tate was held in high esteem by his students and the community, and after his untimely death students and athletes from the Class of 2000 initiated the idea of the Willie A. Tate Heart and Soul Award and Scholarship. Theannual run/walk raises funds for that scholarship. This year's scholarship and award was presented to PHS graduates Trevor Ohle and Mariah Marsh. The inscription on the plaque commends those "who embody the strengths of sportsmanship, motivation, and dedication inspired by Mr. Tate." This year's sponsors of the Tate Run are Marie Garibotti, DDS; Healthy Bodies; Nichole's Coffee Depot; Plumas Pines Golf Resort; Headlines; River Pines Resort and Vacation Rentals; and Creekside Commercial Builders Inc.

ARPD plans cc stumed bike ride James Wilson with the idea to organize the dress up and pull out their Sports Editor Haveyou ever thought You , were born in the wrong decade? Now there is a chance to pretend that you're simply riding along in the decade you were meant to be in. The Almanor Recreation and Park District will launch its inaugural Decades Bike Ride on Aug. 9. The free event is set up for people to not only enjoy Almanor's natural beauty, but be transported back to days of yore. Michelle Gosney, who has sat on the ARPD board for the last seven months, came up ride after attending a "Tweed Ride" in Chico. People in the area pulled out their vintage bikes and attire and enjoyed a peaceful ride through the city. Visually, the ride appealed to Gosney. "I thought, this is what we need around Lake Almanor," said Gosney on her experience. "We have all this open space and beautiful views." The recreation department decided to start off what will hopefully become an annual event with a "Roaring 1920s" theme. In future years, the theme may change to different decades. Participants ae invited to vintage bicycles for an 8-mile ride along the Lake Almanor Recreation Trail. The bike path is relatively flat, allowing most bikes to make their way along the course. Midway through the course, a picnic area and hot dog stand will be set up. Participants can pack their own lunch and drinks if desired. Riders will meet up at 10 a.m. at the Almanor Recreation Trailhead on Highway 89 across from Humbug Road. For more information, contact Michelle Gosney at 519-3879 or go to
