businesses switch
to new locations, more to come

Express editor
Winters residents must have a quick eye and good memory to keep up with all the location changes of several downtown businesses, many tied to the demolition of four Railroad Avenue buildings (two down, two to go) in preparation for a new downtown hotel. But, other changes are happening as well, and anyone who has been out of town for a couple of months may be scratching his/her head to figure out where everybody went.
As the walls of the buildings at 318 and 314 Railroad Avenue came tumbling down, and images of Cody’s Market Place and JJ’s Saloon faded into collective memory in April, the Winters Chamber of Commerce left its spot at 312-A Railroad Avenue (it had only been there since September) and relocated to 18 Main Street. The Chamber is subleasing some floor space from realtor Jean DeLeonardi, who opened her real estate office at that spot (formerly Zoily clothing boutique) in May. . . .



The Winters Express will be closing for a few days. No phones. We hope to be open on Monday.

Warriors win section championship

Ingles wins
11th section title

Express sports

It’s been nine years since the Winters High School varsity baseball team has won a Northern Section title, but the drought is now over. On Saturday, May 23, the Warriors traveled to Butte College for the third straight season, but this time pulled off a 4-3 victory over Pierce High School to win the CIF Northern Section Division IV Championship.
The last time the Warriors won the section crown was in 2006 when they defeated Anderson 9-2. The last time the Warriors won the football and the baseball section championship in the same school year was in 1994-95. The first time it was done was in the 1981-82 school year. . . .
