Roll From page 1 .... It was a Peterbilt trailer and a Caterpillar compactor. They were driving well within the weight limits. The road gave out, conse- quently causing the truck to flip" Castellon said. "We've been doing our due diligence, reporting and staying in touch with the proper authorities, the sheriff's and the fire department as well as the Con- servancy's ranger. No citations were issued." Castellon said his company had tried to prepare for the worst due to the unusually wet weather. ' .... We were trying to stay in the area on one side where the road could have washed out. They had been following the same path we've been following for the last month and half of rains. The Con- servancy did tell us they are go- ing to take precautions and fix the road." Castellon said the accident was a surprise. "We are a very safe company and we follow the rules and regulations," Castellon said. "All of our drivers are OSHA cer- tified and trained. This was very unfortunate. Thank God there were no injuries or spills." Lenny Altherr, Director of Fa- cilities of the Conservancy said he was also thankful there were no in- juries or fuel leaks. He said, "The Ranger, County Fire and Sheriff Departments all worked together to minimize any problems. A professional tow rig orga- nization is coming over from the -mainland to access the situation and make the extraction from the hillside. A tractor-trailer rolled off the dirt road from Mt. Oriaba on Tuesday. No one was injured.

SINGING WATERS CHRISTIANCENTER SERVING THE CHURCH, REACHING THE ISLAND 346 CATAUNA AVE LANCERS END RUN OF SUCCESS ON THE COURT By Steve Hall The Avalon Boys Varsity Basket- ball Team finally ended its run. The team's last game of the year ended its dreams of success in the 2011 CIF Southern Section Playoffs. It was on Wednesday, Feb. 23 that the Lancers lost to the top ranked team, the Wolfpack from Valley Torah. Avalon faced Valley Torah in the quarterfinals at home, before a packed house at Hickey Rohlik Pavilion. The place has never been louder. The Lancers started slow and appeared to be nervous. They fell behind 10-0 and then 15- 5, but came charging back and fin- ished the first half tied at 27 points a piece. The place was rocking and Ava- lon seemed ready for the challenge. The Wolpack's 6=foot, 9-inch cen- ter Aaron Liberman got into foul trouble and had to be removed from the game in the third quarter. Everything was going Avalon's way as they took a commanding 11-point lead with three minutes remaining in the third quarter. Un- YOUR TREASURE AWAITS...

The result was a Valley Torah charge that the Lancers couldn't stop and eventually led to Avalon's demise. The final score was Valley Torah 62, Avalon 52. Edgar Alvarez and Marco Gal- legos led the Lancers in this one with 16 and 14 points respectively. Miles Radde came off the bench to inspire the Lancers as well. The Lancers have a lot to be proud of. They went toe to toe with the best team in their division and played wonderful basketball in front of their home crowd, in a pressure packod game. The team members and leaders are gratefulto seniors Sebastian Sanchez, Brandon Hays, Miles Radde, Eloy Rodriguez and Nick Viernes for providing the leadership, hustle and skill that brought the Lancers back to the playoffs as a legitimate contender. It's also excited about the future as we return many quality players and hope to make another playoff run as well as contend for a league championship. The team appreciates all the positive support we received throughout the season from the entire community and hope that we helped build a little school and community spirit that we can con- tinue to work on.
