Express editor
It’s been a retirement in stages — beginning in 1983, when the Express publisher, Newt Wallace, turned all the publishing responsibilities over to his son, Charley. As the years rolled by, Newt pruned off a few responsibilities, such as writing his weekly “Here, There and Everywhere” column only on occasion, when the mood struck him.
Three years ago, Newt retired as the official Winters weatherman, and Joe “The Butcher” Bristow picked up the job, monitoring daily temperatures and rainfall. But Newt settled into a comfortable pattern of coming in to the Express office each morning to read his newspapers, empty the trashcans and recycling bins, and collect the “Yesteryear” and “Years Ago” content for Page 2, and type up the weekly Lake Berryessa statistics each Tuesday morning, then collate all the advertising inserts by hand and stack them for the news carriers to insert into the printed papers on Wednesday mornings. . . .

Despite losing more key players to season ending injuries, the Winters High School football team continued to show their resilience with a first round victory over the visiting Esparto Spartans.
On Friday, Nov. 13, the number one-seeded Warriors hosted the number eight Esparto Spartans in the first round of the Northern Section Division IV playoff game and pulled off a 41-8 victory to advance on to the second round.
On the Warriors sidelines stood a group of players that are definitely all league and some all section players, the problem was all five of them were wearing street cloths and are out for the season with injuries.
That is what the Warriors have been dealing with all season but somehow each week find a way to overcome it.
“It says a lot about the character of this team,” said coach Daniel Ward. “Every week we have to deal with some kind of adversity but it doesn’t phase them. They make the necessary adjustments and make the most of it.” . . .
