Portola Reporter Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017 3A Alan Stenzel takes submitted a moment to examine the freshly painted, vibrant tiger on the gymnasium floor at PHS. Go Tigers! CAMPUS, from page 1A sporting events, with the rlrst home football game being held Friday, Sept. 1, at 5 p.m. "There are also many other small improvements being made," Sheridan happily said. "We have two computer labs completely refurbished with new computers, and more teachers now have access to the 1:1 devices, where each student has a laptop assigned to them. PHS is also working toward additional "C.O.W.s," or Computers on Wheels, a mobile charging station with 25-30 laptops on each for student usage. Sheridan spoke about how PHS staff is working to implement more options for student activities, and additional options on the cafeteria menu to provide incentives to students that may have left campus for lunch in the past. Volleyball and soccer will be starting up soon, and volleyball and flag football will now be open to sixth- through eighth-graders in an effort spearheaded by Sheridan and promoted by C. Roy Carmichael Elementary School Principal Melissa Leal, in the hopes of increasing interest in sports among students at younger ages, giving local youth more opportunity to try out new sports before they reach high school. Volleyball and flag football teams are still looking for coaches, so if there are any members of the community that would like to get involved, Sheridan asks interested parties to call PHS at 832-4284. Portola High School coach Matt Compton works to give the ticket booth at PHS a facelift, donating his time and expertise to the gratitude of PHS staff.

Roller was also asked to paint murals to decorate the windows of a pizza parlor owned by John Steffanic, with scenes of the Portola Roundhouse and the Portola train station prominent. Later, Roller was asked to join the Railroad Days committee, and began painting murals to display in the windows in town as Portola decorated for Railroad Days. Many other of his paintings were displayed at the bowling alley, and his work now appears at The Caf6 in Truckee, Portola City Hall, Plumas Bank in Portola, WPRM and in the Loyalton Museum at the old middle school.
