Private graduates from training
U.S. Army Pvt. Lucas N. Urbancic has graduated from One Station Unit Training at Fort Knox, Ky.
During the first nine weeks, Urbancic completed basic combat training, which included instruction in drill and ceremony, weapons, marksmanship and bayonet use, chemical warfare, field work and tactical exercises and other training. He also completed tank training and training to operate armored vehicles and handle ammunition.

Young marksman earns award
Felton seventh-grader Fox Pettinotti, who attends Nature Academy, recently received the National Rifle Association’s Distinguished Expert Marksmanship Award from the Santa Clara Valley Rifle Club.
Fox completed the requirements for 4-Position Rifle Qualification in July at age 11, making him the youngest recipient of the Distinguished Expert rating in the 81-year-history of the club. Shooters of any age can earn the rating, and junior shooters must meet the same requirements as adults.
The Distinguished Expert rating is the pinnacle of the NRA’s Marksmanship Qualification program, signifying a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter.
After reaching this nationally recognized skill level, Fox plans to begin shooting competitively. He hopes to qualify for the U.S.A. Junior Olympic shooting team.
He is the son of Grant Pettinotti and E. Ariel Young.
