College hires new soccer coach

George Kee

Aug. 13 — George Kee began his new job as the Lassen Community College men’s soccer coach last week and has already assembled a team and set high goals for the upcoming season.

Kee is originally from San Antonio, Texas where he has been playing and coaching soccer for the past several years.


Before becoming a coach, he played soccer as a child and in high school, then moved on to play four years in college in Austin, Texas. After college, he began coaching with a division of the  United Soccer League Super-20 League.


While he has visited Southern California on vacations before, this is his first time in Northern California.


“It’s beautiful,” he said.


Kee started in his new position last Monday and began practicing with the team Tuesday. With the season starting at the end of this month, you might think Kee would be overwhelmed with the amount of work he has to do between now and then. However, he says it’s been a lot less stressful than one might expect.

July 28 — Mud flew, metal crunched and madness ensued as 10 drivers went head-to-head (and bumper-to-bumper) during the Lassen County Fair’s 2014 Demolition Derby.

The derby took place immediately after the stock car races at Diamond Mountain Speedway on Sunday, July 20 and saw a packed crowd of spectators who were eager to witness mass destruction.


Buddy Davies, who drove car No. 10x, came out as the champion of the evening. Keith Peterson, in car No. 77, took second place and Nevin Kennemore was awarded Most Aggressive in car No. AR-15. Both Davies and Peterson are from Bieber. Kennemore is a Susanville native.

July 16 — The 2014 Lassen County Fair kicked off last night with a wild show of bulls, blood, dust and mud.

The first qualified ride of the evening went to Will Rasmussen, but his lead was short-lived, as Blaine Tibbals came along and outscored him.


The first-place winner was Enrique Sanchez, who went home with a prize of $2,750. Tibbals ended up taking second place and $1,710. Alex Guzman was the third place rider, who won $1,140 and Grayson Hill came in fourth, getting a $100 prize.
