  • Now is the time for pruning mature apples and pears

 In 2017, the CASR Falcons (Coral Academy of Science — Reno) became the first charter school in Nevada to field a football team.
The last time Coral came to Lovelock, on Oct. 24, 2019, the Mustangs sent them packing 50-0.
But the Falcons have persevered. They’re eager to challenge the Mustangs this Friday at 7 p.m. under the lights of Joe Yanni Field, dimmed for nearly a year now.
