Cole Jordling, a Winters Middle School student, is the Pisani’s Athlete of the Week. This summer Jordling attended a PGA camp at Paradise Valley in Fairfield, California. The camp focused on skills of the full swing and the short game, along with rules of the game and etiquette. Jordling excelled in two competitions against a PGA professional in chipping and putting.
Winters once boasted a prosperous Japanese community, which tragically burned on Aug. 1, 1942 when the United States was celebrating victory over Japan. While the cause of the fire has never been determined, Winters saw discrimination toward Japanese Americans following the war.
