RedHawks raising money for tribute to veterans
The Colusa High football team is raising money to help fund a veterans tribute wall at Memorial Park in Colusa.
The players are split up into groups of about three players and competing with each other to raise the most money, Colusa coach Paul Theriault said.
Theriault said the players are available to work for the money with the proceeds going towards the memorial wall.
To donate, or put the RedHawks to work, contact Theriault at email@example.com or call him at 632-8116.

Hunting tags for 2014-15 available to nonprofit groups
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) invites nonprofit organizations to help wildlife by auctioning big game hunting license tags for the 2014-15 season. These tags will allow the highest bidder to hunt bighorn sheep, deer, elk and pronghorn antelope in California. Only 12-14 of these special fund-raising tags will be reserved for 501(c)(3) nonprofit groups to sell.
Nonprofit organizations compete for a chance to auction these special fund-raising tags, which hunters can only buy through such auctions. The possibility of winning such a rare prize attracts bidders to the groups' fund-raising events, which helps them raise more money for their organizations.
A call for applications and the required application form are on the CDFW website at http://www.dfg.ca.gov/wildlife/hunting/fundraising/index.html.
Applications must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Oct. 14, 2013.

The California Upland Game Bird Stamp Art Contest is open to all U.S. residents ages 18 and older.
Art contest entries must include at least one adult sooty grouse. Entries will be judged on originality, artistic composition, anatomical accuracy and suitability for reproduction as a stamp and a print.
The contest will be judged by a panel of experts in the fields of ornithology, conservation, art and printing. The winning artist will be selected during a public judging event, with the date and location to be announced at a later date.
