Super Bowl LIV: Tight ends Kittle, Kelce have different styles, same domination

SANTA CLARA — After each Chiefs game, 49ers tight end George Kittle gets a special delivery: Game tape of his counterpart in Kansas City, Travis Kelce. “I get his games every single week so I can watch what he does because he’s definitely one of the best in the game at what he does,” Kittle said. “Receiving, just finding open spots.” Kelce led all tight ends with 1,229 receiving yards this season, but was edged out on the AP’s All-Pro team by a vote of 33-17 by Kittle, who crossed the 1,000-yard threshold with a seven-catch, 86-yard game in Week 17 against the Seahawks. The veteran Chiefs tight end may have superior numbers, but even he admits that Kittle is a unique talent at the position. “Just about everybody in the world thinks the world of George Kittle,” Kelce told reporters in Kansas City this week. “He’s an unbelievable person, unbelievable amount of energy. How he plays the game with a tenacity, it’s one of a kind. It’s special.” Super Bowl LIV will feature elite talents all over the field, but the matchup of tight…

Ahead of Super Bowl LIV, 49ers DB Jimmie Ward makes the case for himself in free agency

SANTA CLARA — Jimmie Ward doesn’t know where he’ll be playing next season, but he does know that wherever he winds up at the end of free agency, he won’t be lining up anywhere at cornerback. The first thing on Ward’s mind, like every Niner, is Super Bowl LIV. But next up may be his next team. Ward, who played this season on a one-year contract, made the pitch for himself Friday before the 49ers depart for Miami. “It means a lot because I might not be here next year,” Ward said of the stakes for him next Sunday. “It’s reality. It’s free agency … “A lot of coaches — every level that I’ve played at — they try me at corner. They see corner inside of me. That’s cool, it means they respect me as a player. But I feel I can change the game at safety.” His response to any team that approaches him about playing cornerback? “I’m good,” he said. “I can play it, but I don’t want to play corner.” Although he’s had the stability of playing for the same franchise…

100 years ago: No register, no vote; see county clerk today

The next important item to occupy the serious attention of the individual of voting age is the matter of registration for the coming primaries and general elections. A complete new registration of the voters of Tehama county will have to be made. The last day to register for the municipal election or to transfer is March 12th. The last day on which you can register for the presidential primary election is April 3. The last day to register or transfer for the August primary election is July 31st. The last day to register or transfer for the general election is October 2nd. The matter of casting one’s vote at an election is of prime importance. And this privilege can not be exercised unless men and women of voting age get their names on the great register. Go to the county clerk’s office at once and do this. There is no money provided to pay for having parties call on you and register you. The county clerk has put this matter squarely up to citizens who have been taking the voting census in the past and…
