JDHS grad named to All-Pac-10 hoops team

JDHS graduate and Oregon State sophomore women's basketball player Talisa Rhea was named All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention Friday for the second time in as many seasons.

Rhea has ranked in the Pac-10's top 10 scorers for most of the season and finished the regular season in fifth with 13.9 points per game. She hit 62 three-pointers, which not only ranks her first on the Beavers, but also puts her just five away from tying the second-best total in school history she posted last season.

The Oregon State women's basketball team has been selected to play in the Women's National Invitation Tournament, it was announced Monday night. The Beavers have a first-round bye and will play the winner of Portland-Portland State Saturday at legendary Gill Coliseum.

The Beavers made the WNIT as the automatic berth from the Pacific-10 Conference after finishing tied for fourth in the league in 2008-09.

Spring bear permits now available online

The brown bear hunting season is now open in Southeast Alaska. Beginning this spring, hunters with a current e-mail address may obtain Units 1-5 brown bear registration permits online at www.hunt.alaska.gov. Before registering, hunters must have a valid hunting license and big-game locking tag.

There are two available permits for GMU 4: RB089 inside drainages close May 20, while RB088 outside drainages close May 31. For boundary clarifications, refer to the 2008-09 Hunting Regulations or the online Wildlife Conservation Maps at www.wildlife.alaska.gov.

Successful hunters may harvest one brown bear every four regulatory years in Southeast Alaska. All successful bear hunters must report to a Department of Fish & Game office within 10 days of kill and present their completed hunt report and unfrozen bear hide and skull to ADF&G for sealing within 30 days of kill. Evidence of sex must remain naturally attached to the hide until it is sealed. Hunters who are unsuccessful or unable to hunt may report online.

All hunt reports are due by June 15. Call the Douglas area office at 465-4265 for more information.
