Wrestlers flock to LHS by the hundreds

Don't fear if you see busloads of boys weighing 115 and up flooding over the mountains and descending onto La Grande.

Elk hunt of a lifetime

Elk hunter Todd Erickson felt exhaustion in every ounce of his body as he crawled into his sleeping bag at 1 a.m. one day last month in north Wallowa County.

It must be December, because the Tigers looked eerily like a "It's a Wonderful Life" promo.

What do teams do after losing a star player?
