Cutler is interim

Staff writer
The June 18 school board meeting saw the announcement of Dr. Todd Cutler as the interim superintendent of schools, following Brent Cushenberry’s departure for the Point Arena School District. Cutler has 22 years of experience and is very excited about his time here in Winters.
“I am thrilled for the opportunity, and I am excited about being part of this team,” said Cutler. “I look forward to getting to know everyone. There is something special about a community this size. I am really looking forward to getting started.”
Cutler’s contract was approved by the trustees and he will begin his duties shortly. . . .

Warriors already back on the football field

Warriors trade Gold Beach for Tahoe
Express sports

It seems like the Winters High School football program just finished their season but as the heat rolls in, the Warriors are making their way back onto the field and into the gym.
The Warriors have been working out since school ended and now they are getting ready for their annual camp. This year though, it unfortunately won’t be in cool Gold Beach, Oregon. But it will be in Lake Tahoe, so not a bad trade.
Due to some CIF rule changes, Winters along with everybody else, are not allowed to participate in full contact camps. So, the Warriors are headed to Lake Tahoe on Tuesday, June 23. . . .


Gafflers repeat as champions of City League

Special to the Express

For the second straight year, the Gafflers emerged with the town championship. Last Sunday, they faced the Callison team in a tough-fought and physical game. The Gafflers were down by one at halftime 26-25, but their unrelenting defensive pressure, along with some fierce offensive post-play and timely three-pointers sealed the victory. The Gafflers’ center, Chad Stocking, led all scorers with 17 points.
The Gafflers are the longest running Winters Adult League basketball team in town history. Formed in 1995, they’ve had players that have spanned generations. Robert Perez is the last remaining member of the original team, followed closely by Peter Alsbury who joined in 1996.
The Winters Adult Basketball League has been an annual tradition for many years. The league is an important fundraiser for the Winters High School basketball program. Every year local players put teams together to vie for town bragging rights and to support a good cause.
