Section 1, page 6 - THE GRIDLEY HERALD - Wednesday, February 27, 1980 iii Little League signups Saturday Signups for Little League will be held this Saturday at 631 Virginia Street from 9 to 11 a.m. All youngsters must be eight by August I, but no older than 15 by that date, to participate. Those wishing to signup must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and have a birth certi- ficate. Tri-Cities signups set this week Signups for Tri-Cities Softball will be held twice this week. Interested youngsters can signup Thursday from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Sycamore School Library or Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Safeway. Youngsters must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian and bring along a birth certificate. There are three divisions, pee- wee for boys and girls ages 7-8; minors for girls 9-12; and majors for girls 13-15. aster Week parks close Two state beaches and one state park have been taken off the state park campglotand reservation System because of recent storm damage to beach installations. The units, all now closed to the public, are Leo Carrilio State Beach in Los Angeles County, Seacliff State Beach in Santa Cruz County, and Point Mugu State Park in Ventura County. People who already have reser- vations at those campgrounds may be assigned campsites at nearby state park campgrounds if any are available, or they may request re- funds. Anyone who has reserva- tions for Easter week, one of the most popular camping periods of the year, is unlikely to find alter- native campsites available. At Leo Carrillo State Beach and Point Mu&u State Park, water supply systems and roads have been washed out. At Leo Carrillo, the restrooms have been damaged, much of the campground is covered with mud, and the beach is covered with debris. Repairs to both units will take several weeks, and perhaps months. At Seacliff State Beach, the high tides and surf have washed out the seawall and eight campsites and lhreaten all other campsites, the restrooms, and the day-use park- ing area. The concrete ship, which has been a popular fishing site, is severely damaged. State Park Area Manager Richard Menefee said the damage to the seawall and the ship is much worse than the damage caused by a similar storm in the winter of 1978. Repairs will require at least several months. Reservations for state park campsites may be made as early as 8 weeks in advance. To get a refund, without paying a cancellation fee, a campsite tic- ket holder must bring the ticket to the unit or mail it, with request for refund, to the unit at the ad- dress given on the reservation re- quest form.The addressses of the three units are: Point Mugu State Park, P.O. Box 2678, Oxnard, CA 93030; Leo Carrillo State Beach, c/o Point Mugu State Park; and Seacliff State Beach, 235 Santa Cruz Avenue, Aptos, CA 95003. d .... t ' *2 ....

IlGG$. $U-12U I I Illl I III II El ir ' opening contest As the Gridley Bulldogs prepare for the NSCIF Championships, they received a big setback this week when leading scorer Andy Rodgers was disqualified from post season play. What happened was Rodgers was playing a City League game in Willows, one which he thought was a forfeit so it did not count. However, the game was not an- nounced as a forfeit. High School basketball players cannot participate in other organ- ized games during the season. If they do, they are automatically dis- qualified. Rodgers, a junior forward, is the Bulldogs' leading scorer and sec- ond leading rebounder. Coach Darcy Wingo said his players are going to have to be more selective in their shots and play tougher defense if they want to win the NSCIF title without Rodgers. The Gridley Bulldogs will have the opportunity to get a first-hand look at their NSCIF Champion- ships opponent this week when they take on Shasta Friday in the J.C. Nesbit Tournament in Oro- ville at 8:45 p.m. Shasta, which finished second in the Northern Athletic League be- hind undefeated Anderson, was named the wildcard team for the NSCIF Championships in Redding March 7 and 8.

Iate's duck numbers up California duck populations were up 17 percent from those for last year while the number of geese rose 62 percent, according to results from the annual midwinter waterfowl survey for 1980. In all, said the Department of Fish and Game 6,098,000 ducks were tallied in the census. As usual, pintails [3,750,800] were the most numerous of the ducks. Other major species were wigeon [726,900], shovelers [664,200] and mallards [424,200]. Although the total 1980 goose count of 524,000 showed a spec- tacular jump from that for 1979, DFG waterfowl coordinator Bob LeDonne pointed out that the count was 27 percent below the 25 year~ a~'efage. Of the 1980 total number of geese, an estimated 347,500 were snow geese. The winter survey, a cooperative effort of the DFG and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, is con- ducted annually at the close of the waterfowl hunting season. Census methods include aerial estimates of the main concentra- tion areas and ground counts in the outlying areas. LeDonne said that survey efforts this year were hampered by rain and fog.
