Police funding in voters’ hands BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

A Hereford cow grazes on plenty of tall grass and free flowing water in a pasture provided for by Columbia County, Oregon Humane Society and numerous volunteers. The animals have already begun to gain weight and show improved coat condition.
ST. HELENS — As the St. Helens Police Department continues to look for ways to cut costs and save pennies, the city council has decided to leave it up to voters to come up with needed monies to fund four new officers for the next five years. “Approving the levy will allow St. Helens to fund four police officer positions, one police evidence technician, one police records specialist and purchase related equipment and training,” said Kathy Payne, city recorder and elections official for St. Helens. The ballot measure will call for a new tax of $1 per $1,000 of assessed property value to be added to a
Fate of seized cattle remains unknown ST. HELENS — For the more than 160 cattle seized from local farmer William Holdner, life definitely seems to have a taken a turn for the better. In the less than two weeks the cattle have been under the care of Columbia County, Oregon Humane Society and volunteers, many of the cows, steers and calves taken from Holdner’s properties in Scappoose and Warren have already begun putting on weight. But despite having gained 50 pounds or more in the last two weeks, many of those same cattle remain visibly emaciated with ribs, hip and pelvic bones visible under the skin. On July 26, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, with assistance from Oregon Humane Society and local volunteers, executed a search warrant on three properties owned by Holdner under suspicion of animal neglect. In the end, 164 cattle, which were often kept without access to either food or water, were deemed to be in immediate need of assistance were removed from the properties. The fate of Columbia County’s only cattle herd has See CATTLE, Page A2

homeowner’s tax bill. For a $100,000 home, this would equal an increase of $100 per year or $8.33 per month. For a home with an assessed property value of $200,000, this would equal an increase to the annual property tax of $200 per year or $16.67 per month. According to a staffing study completed by the St. Helens Police Department and John M. Lehr with the Criminal Justice Policy Research Institute at Portland State University, local police have been operating with far fewer officers than needed. “St. Helens Police Department, like virtually every police department in Oregon and perhaps the rest of the nation, has felt the effects of the economic collapse,” said Lehr in his analysis. “Budget limitations, staff cuts, hiring freezes and other
consequences of the economic crisis necessitate significant efforts to put resources in the right place.” In the analysis, Lehr found the St. Helens Police Department needed to increase its staffing levels for patrol to 18-27 officers and assigned a high priority to completing that step. Currently, St. Helens has 16 patrol officers, one of whom is on maternity leave and an-
other is out with a broken ankle, leaving just 14 officers available for duty. “In the last three budget cycles, we’ve lost a police officer, we’ve lost a code enforcement officer and See POLICE, Page A2

A five-mile stretch of Highway 30 designated as a safety corridor has had mixed results since its inception in late 2010.

Police looking into death of area teenager SCAPPOOSE — Shortly after midnight on July 29, Scappoose Police officers responded to a call of a 15-year-old female who was unconscious and not breathing. Officers arrived at the Scappoose home and began to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation to the teen until paramedics from the Scappoose Rural Fire District arrived and were able to continue resuscitation efforts. Paramedics transported the female patient to Emanuel Hospital in Portland. Sadly, the young woman never regained consciousness and was pronounced deceased. Scappoose Police is currently investigating the circumstances of the death. The Oregon State Medical Examiners Office will be conducting an autopsy to determine the cause of death. The name of the victim has not yet been released.
A five-mile stretch of Highway 30 between St. Helens and Scappoose was designated as a safety corridor in late 2010. The hope was that by rising driver awareness, speeds and fatal accidents on the roadway would be reduced. The success of the program has been difficult to quantify. “I don’t know if statistically they can show it’s made any impact, but according to state troopers, they feel like there has been a reduction,” said Columbia County Commissioner Earl Fisher. “But the people who live out there do not think there has been.” Fisher also said he

A roadside safety audit of Highway 30 between Berg and Millard roads was completed by ODOT. Additional audits of the highway between Tide Creek Road near Goble and Neer City Road and in Clatskanie between Carlson and Lindberg roads will also be completed. “The difficulty is that there are so many people on the road,” said Fisher. “That really creates an See SAFETY, Page A2
Pop a cork at Avenue 30 BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
SCAPPOOSE — To the friends, family and business acquaintances of Suzie Dahl, it is likely no surprise this business-savy Scappoose resident has opened her own retail store. The surprise is that she had time to. Dahl recently opened Avenue 30, an upscale retail shop featuring home goods, gifts and wines at 33480 S.W. Chinook Plaza, between Dairy Queen and Ace Hardware. In addition to being a store owner, Dahl is also an interior designer, does home inspections and creates unique wood furniture pieces. And she’s not looking to give any of those tasks up. Avenue 30 is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays. By opening at 11 a.m., Dahl still has time to do her home inspections in the morning before heading to the shop. What prompted Dahl to open her own shop, along with all of the other tasks she takes on? Dahl said the time was just right. “You get tired of shopping at Fred Meyer or Wal-

mart, or driving for two hours to drive back and forth to Portland,” she said. Dahl realizes having higher end items may mean the store won’t be to everyone’s taste. “I don’t get a lot of teenagers in here,” Dahl said, but she’s okay with that. Instead, she hopes shoppers will realize Avenue 30 is just the right place to find
unique gift items for a birthday, baby shower, wedding or other occasion. “I do have a lot of vintage in here,” she said. “Every piece I display is for sale and they’re vintage pieces. I think that’s the best way to display things.” Avenue 30 is more than just shopping though. It’s also a great place to find a new favorite wine.
Dahl said she has tastings daily and also hosts regular larger-scale tastings on a somewhat monthly basis. “I do samplings throughout the day. I usually do two to three bottles a day, and that’s free,” she said. For more expensive wines, Dahl will host paid tastings to recover the costs See AVENUE 30, Page A2

Pavement work could impact area drivers
POLICE: levy would add four new police positions

we’ve lost one clerk. We’ve lost a total of five employees in the last several budget cycles,” said SHPD Lt. Terry Moss, who noted it was during one of those previous budget cycles that the question came up of how many officers was actually needed to cover the services provided by the police department. “We have allocated time and unallocated time; allocated time being the response to calls and things that officers have to do. Then there’s unallocated time which is the stuff that officers don’t have to do but the public expects from us,” said Moss. Among those unallocated tasks are citywide routine patrols and traffic enforcement stops. Moss said in order to understand just how many officers would be needed to maintain those current allocated and unallocated tasks, an analysis had to be performed. The city partnered with Portland State University to quantify that number and to look at other recommenda-
tions. Among those other recommendations were to increase deployment levels on weekdays, improve its community-policing approach, to consider training a command officer and conduct citizen surveys, among others. The levy being added to the ballot would fund the four new police positions by providing funds for a five-year period. “It is estimated that the proposed rate will net approximately $751,470 in 2013-14, $758,120 in 2014-15, $765,000 in 2015-16, $776,600 in 2016-17, and $793,640 in 2017-18, for a total of $3,844,880,” said Payne. But the need for more police officers isn’t just to ensure the safety of area residents. In his analysis, Lehr said that while police agencies may not have the luxury of increasing staffing to accommodate increased workloads, they need to “maintain levels without jeopardizing officer and public safety.” Voters will have a chance to weigh in on that need on Nov. 6.

yet to be determined. “Currently, they are evidence in a court proceeding,” said Columbia County Commissioner Henry Heimuller. “What’s going to happen to them in the long run? We don’t exactly know that yet.” Heimuller said that decision will depend on the courts. Should the court decide the cattle should be forfeited to the county, they could be sold to recoup some of the costs incurred. “In the meantime, we’re going to care for them,” said Heimuller. Holder is scheduled to appear in court in November on similar animal neglect charges that were filed in November 2011. The county is now hoping the court will be able to rule on how to dispose of the cattle herd based on those earlier charges. “It would be nice if the judge would determine this is a similar enough case to combine them. That would be great,” said Heimuller. “But you don’t know how the attorneys will file this.” For now though, care of the animals will remain in the hands of the county. To provide for their care, the county placed the herd in a pasture

NW Germantown Road from N.W. Skyline Blvd., west to the Washington County line, about ½ mile west of N.W. Kaiser Road, the road will be closed to through traffic on workdays due to the narrow, winding terrain and the number of large construction vehicles working in a constrained area. Access will be provided to local
residents escorted by a pilot vehicle, with travel delays of up to twenty minutes. Northwest Cornelius Pass and Springville roads are suggested alternate routes. Workdays are Aug. 8 from 7 a.m.–7 p.m.; Aug. 14 from 7 a.m.–7 p.m. and Aug. 16 from 7 a.m.–7 p.m. Northwest Rocky Point Road from milepost 2 west of U.S. Highway 30 to N.W.

Traffic from side streets and driveways adjacent to the paving areas may also experience brief delays during a rolling closure. Layers of gravel and oil are applied on the first two workdays and a sealing layer is applied on the third day. Until the final layer is applied, motorists should watch for “loose gravel” signs and drive cautiously.

Three road-surfacing projects in western Multnomah County could impact Columbia County drivers. The projects are to apply chip seals, a cost effective surface treatment for low traffic roads, in rural areas beginning the week of Aug. 6– 10. Although the work is currently scheduled to be done Monday through Thursday for two weeks, that schedule could change depending on the weather.

19. The institute also found that 16-year-olds have higher crash rates than any other age. In recognition of the need to educate younger drivers about driving safety, the Columbia County Traffic and Safety Commission is designating September as traffic safety awareness month. The safety commission is a collaborative partnership of city and county officials, local residents, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Oregon Department of Transportation and others. Lynn Chiotti, who is a member of MADD and the traffic and safety commission, said it doesn’t take a
issue. People are more likely to be driving 58, 60, 61 mph rather than 55. But I don’t see the crazy guy driving 80 mph.” ODOT is expected to release its finding and recommendations later this summer. Look for more on the commission’s education series and ODOT findings in September. In just a few short weeks, school will be back in session and younger, less experienced drivers will take to the roadways. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, car crashes are the leading cause of death for males and females ages 13-
that is monitored daily. Volunteers arrive regularly to ensure water is available at all times in tanks on the property and the City of St. Helens donated the use of a retired water tanker as well. “Right now we have a partnership with the Humane Society. They’re fronting virtually all of the money right now to get them cared for to a standard to where they are fit,” said Heimuller. While the cattle may cost money to care for, they could also be worth a substantial amount of money. The herd is made up of primarily Hereford steers, cows and cow/calf pairs. In healthy condition, many of these could be sold for $1,000$1,500, or even more. “We want to send the message that this kind of neglect is unacceptable in Columbia County,” said Heimuller. Holdner was also sentenced to more than $300,000 in fines, five days in jail and was ordered to shut down his cattle business after being convicted of illegally dumping waste from his cattle operation into tributaries of the Columbia River. He could reduce the fines by $225,000 if he complies with certain timelines set forth by the judge in that ruling.
lot to improve safety on our roadways. “There are simple things they have to do as drivers,” said Chiotti. “If they give themselves a 3-second count when they see a driver trying to get out on the highway, back off on the gas paddle and that allows a cushion to build. And it gets the driver trying to merge to think and they realize they have adequate time to get out there.” Chiotti says it all comes down to reeducating drivers, and that goes for young and old alike. As part of its education campaign, the commission will publish several articles in local newspapers focusing on a variety of safety issues, in-
cluding back to school safety, distracted driving and how driver attitudes affects others. The program will also include a pledge to not use electronic devices such as cell phones, navigation systems, pagers and tablets while driving. The pledges are then dedicated to a loved one and placed on the driver’s dashboard to serve as a daily reminder. Education materials will also be available to students at all five high schools in Columbia County. But the education campaign is just one effort of the traffic commission which looks to improve driver safety in all areas and most especially U.S. Highway 30.

Latest unemployment numbers tell a tale of ups and downs BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
The Oregon Department of Labor released that latest unemployment numbers for both the state and all 36 counties. Columbia County’s unemployment rate continues to remain higher than the statewide average, national average and average of neighboring Clatsop County, as it has done for the past several years. Columbia County’s unemployment rate for June was 9.3 percent, virtually unchanged from the prior month but a full percentage point lower than the 10.3 percent recorded in June of 2011. Oregon’s unemployment rate for June was once again nearly a full percentage point lower than Columbia County at 8.5 percent. And at the national level, the June rate was just 8.2 percent. While the unemployment rates for Oregon and the U.S. are nearly unchanged from the prior month’s rates of 8.5 and 8.2 percent, seasonally adjusted payroll employment grew for four consecutive months through June in Oregon – the first four-month streak since April 2011. Over the past four months, a total of 13,600 jobs were added in the state. Here in Columbia County, total employment fell by 57 from last month to 22,572 and the number of unemployed people rose by 143 to 2,358. When compared to the same period last year, the numbers paint a more positive picture. Total employment for June was up by 398
from June 2011 and there were 288 fewer people unemployed this year. While Columbia County has continued to see steady improvement to its jobless rate year over year, neighboring Clatsop and Tillamook counties have also seen improvements. Tillamook County’s unemployment rate for June was 8.7, again nearly unchanged from the prior month’s rate of 8.6 percent but much better than the 9.1 percent recorded the year prior. In Clatsop County, the unemployment rate for June was 7.8 percent, lower than either the state or national averages but up slightly from the prior month at 7.6 percent. The June rate is also a full percentage point lower than the June 2011 rate of 8.8 percent. Columbia County continues to see both measurable increases and decreases in jobs. Seasonally adjusted nonfarm payroll employment dropped by 10 jobs in June to 9,590. Seasonally adjusted figures compare expected changes with actual changes. A gain of 60 jobs is normal for the month, but the county’s payroll employment grew by only 50; private sector jobs rose by 10 and government employment rose by 40; construction added 20 jobs, but retail trade shed 30 and local governments added 30 jobs. When compared to the same period the prior year, the number of jobs in Columbia County has increased by 100. In addition, the industries those jobs could be found in have also changed. Private industry is up by
150 jobs this year over 2011 but government jobs, mostly at the local and educational level, are down by 50. Some of the largest increases have come from manufacturing (170), education and health services (40) and transportation (20). Some of the largest decreases cam from state government (-30), local government (-20), construction (20) and retail trade (-20). Not surprisingly, many workers from Columbia County are traveling outside of the area for employment, far more than those in neighboring Tillamook and Clatsop counties. In 2006, approximately 66 percent of workers in Columbia County were commuting outside of the county. The number grew steadily to nearly 74 percent in 2009, but then dropped slightly in 2010 to 72.3 percent. The overall increase was about 5 percent. Columbia County’s rate of commuting workers is still nearly double that of Clatsop County, although that county has seen steadier increases in its rates. Only 29 percent of Clatsop County workers were commuting back in 2006. That number has risen nearly 9 percent to just below 38 percent. The number of commuters in Tillamook County was also about half the rate of Columbia County with just over 32 percent commuting in 2006. But that number rose more than 10 percent to nearly 43 percent in 2010. Out of 36 counties tracked, Columbia County had the 16th highest unemployment rate for February 2012.

Opinion U SPEEDBUMP
LETTERS Small is good St. Helens is now home to two food carts. And yes, the new Noi Thai Kitchen food cart may compete with restaurants but it’s not unfair competition. Customers use food carts because, at times, they are willing to trade the comfort and atmosphere of full-service restaurants for the convenience and prices offered by food carts. The customers make the choice – not the owners of the food carts or the owners of the restaurant. When I was young we were taught that little guys can’t compete with big guys; and no one can compete with big car companies, big banks, big pharma, or big schools. It is not true. We now know that innovation, jobs, and prosperity are more likely to come from smaller operations. Two of the three big car companies of my youth went bust; the only banks in Oregon that actually seem to be lending to business are the smaller, more local banks; and the wonderfully innovative drug and medical device companies in Oregon could easily compete with big pharmaceutical companies if it was not for the crushing burden of government regulations. Small operations of any sort cannot survive the current regulatory burdens, while large companies are able to hire lawyers and lobbyists. Now that is unfair competition. When I moved into the Scappoose County School District 34 years ago, Oregon had consolidated all the smaller school districts into
larger districts. We had been promised lower administrative costs, increased teaching staff, and more efficient schools. My children would have been in the school bus to and from Scappoose for three hours a day. We chose homes schooling over the full-service schools. In fact, the consolidated school districts in Oregon did not lower administrative costs, and the schools were neither more efficient nor higher in quality. Today, all over the country, smaller self-governing schools – both private and public – are outperforming bigger schools. We are blessed in having both food carts and restaurants, just as we are blessed in having a wider variety of banks and schools. Small is good. Chana Cox, Scappoose Time to heal As we go through our daily tasks, it is easy to see the hurt and pain that is going on in people’s lives. We live in a country where we have freedom of speech, but I really feel that there are some people that take this freedom to a totally different level. As I drive down Columbia Boulevard, I am shocked to see a sign that has been placed in the yard of a resident that is completely inappropriate. While friendly with both parties involved, it saddens me to see that this person is willing to embarrass and humiliate his children to make
himself look better to his friends. Remember, there are two sides to every story. Maybe his former wife has concerns over his behavior. I know I would and if I was in the same situation and my ex had testified under oath to using drugs and drinking while other kids were present, I would be scared for the safety of my children while in his care. All any parent wants is for their kids to be safe and happy. If there is any chance that they may be in danger, then it is the job of the parent to protect them. All parents should protect all children, not just on the weekend or during visitation. He broke the law by purchasing methamphetamine and using it knowing that there were children in the house. What was he thinking? Yes, we all have freedom of speech and access to the courts, this man is willing to tell only one side of the story. His decision to have a fun-filled evening of illegal drugs and sex was a bad decision – he admits this. But using a mother’s concern for the safety of her children and calling her names where the children and their friends can and have seen this unfold is yet another bad decision. If this person really feels he is not in the wrong in this situation, then let it play out in court, away from the children. It may be longer then either party would like, but it is the right way to do things rather than taking matters into your own hands. All anyone is there to do is to protect the children
and to make sure that they are able to get through a very, very difficult situation. There are no easy answers to any of these situations, nor is there a fast track. This whole situation is going to be something that all parties are going to have
to work on in order to make sure it has the least impact possible on the kids that are involved. It is all about the kids and even when the court proceedings are done and over with, both parents need to at least get along enough for
their kids. I just hope that they can put all of this behind them and move forward to help their kids heal and get on with their lives as separate parents. April Hawkins, St. Helens

Sweet and juicy blackberries are a Pacific Northwest tradition: for many years we've grown and processed most of the blackberries for the country. Our climate matches wonderfully with the blackberry varieties from the USDA’s breeding program in Corvallis. Our very own Marionberry is a prime example: it descends from native Rubus ursinus and the hated Himalayan blackberry (R. armeniacus, now considered a noxious weed), European and other American blackberries, as well as a raspberry. It fares best here in it’s native soil and is not much grown elsewhere, despite the flavor and
eating quality. It is slowly edging out Evergreen, a European berry with high yields and less esteemed flavor, while Kotata, Black Butte, Black Diamond, Black Pearl, Nightfall, Obsidian and Onyx are newer varieties from Corvallis looking to replace Marion itself. Also look for Logan, Boysen and Tay – they are blackberry/raspberry hybrids that edge more towards raspberry flavor. The botanical difference between raspberries and blackberries is the receptacle – the white bit. Blackberry druplets, the little bits of the berry, stay attached to the receptacle which comes free from the plant, while raspberry druplets come free from the receptacle, leaving the white bit on the plant. Rubus genetics are exceedingly complex, involving many species, growth habits, and numbers of sets

Quick and Easy Berry Cobbler There is an unwritten rule kids from the Pacific Northwest all know; if they bring home enough blackberries, someone will make them a cobbler. Ingredients: 2 tbsp. butter 1 cup Bisquick ½ cup sugar ½ cup milk 3 cups berries of your choice (can be fresh or frozen) Directions: Heat oven to 375°F. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Mix Bisquick, sugar, and milk. Pour over melted butter. Spoon berries over. Bake at 375°F for 30 minutes.

POSTMASTER: Send address changes to The Chronicle PO Box 1153 St. Helens, OR 97051-8153
1 ½ cups cold water 1/3 cup sugar +/Directions: Wash the berries and remove any stems. Put berries and cold water into blender or food processor and puree. To remove skins and seeds push mixture through a sieve. Add sugar (more or less depending on sweetness of fruit)
Pour mixture into a glass 9 x13 pan. Put pan into freezer for 45 minutes or so then scrape crystals from edges and mix back into liquid, continue to stir every 30 minutes to keep crystals loose and to keep it from becoming a solid block of ice. You’re looking for a fine snow cone texture; it will take 3 to 4 hours, serve as you would sorbet.

Marvin Lee Wray Marvin Lee Wray, a longtime resident of Scappoose, joined his Lord on July 27. He was 77. Marvin was born March 29, 1935, in Little Rock, Ark., to Marvin Lee Thomas EdWray ward Wray and Willie Mae Black. A 1954 graduate of Scappoose High School, he served honorably in the U.S. Navy on the U.S.S. Carter Hall, and obtained an associate's degree from Portland Community College. While playing the drums for dances at the Dixie Mountain Grange, he met a new piano player, Barbara Jean Munson; they were married in August of 1962. A shareholder in Linnton Plywood, Marvin also worked at Portland Woolen Mill, Kaiser Gypsum, and BoiseCascade, and served as a volunteer firefighter with the Scappoose RFD. His talents in music were showcased throughout his life by participation in school music and semi-professional bands throughout the Portland area, as drummer for weekly dances at Pumpkin Ridge (Washington Grange), and most recently as weekly entertainment at the Scappoose Senior Center. Marvin won the Scappoose Christmas Decorating contest several years over, with elaborate lighting and hand-made scenes that delighted children and adults by the car and busload. The “house on the hill” was a Christmas highlight from 1968 until the late 1990s. As proud father of two Gold-Award Girl Scouts, he served the Scouts not only as taxi, but also camp security, cook, wood-hauler, chaperone, and more. He loved fishing, and despite a busy schedule of constant projects, he was never too busy for frequent and spontaneous trips to Seaside for Skee-Ball or Kah-nee-ta to play in the big pool. After his retirement, he could frequently be found at Ichabod’s or Carol’s, drinking coffee and visiting. Marvin was a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and a member of the First Baptist Church of Portland. He made friends wherever he went, and his friends and family will miss his wide, quick smile. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Barbara Jean Munson Wray, of Scappoose; daughter Karen and son-inlaw Rob Knauerhase of Portland; daughter Julie, of Hillsboro; Belgian “son” Didier Rouma of Musson, Belgium; and his cat M.C. (Marvin's Cat) of Scappoose. He was preceded in death

The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedica-
tion, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly Navy flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.

NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL TENANTS: The property in which you are living is in foreclosure. A foreclosure sale is scheduled for November 7, 2012. Unless the lender who is foreclosing on this property is paid, the foreclosure will go through and someone new will own this property. The following information applies to you only if you occupy and rent this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The information does not apply to you if you own this property or if you are not a residential tenant. If the foreclosure goes through, the business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale has the right to require you to move out. The buyer must first give you an eviction notice in writing that specifies the date by which you must move out. The buyer may not give you this notice until after the foreclosure sale happens. If you do not leave before the moveout date, the buyer can have the sheriff remove you from the property after a court hearing. You will receive notice of the court hearing. FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES YOU TO BE NOTIFIED IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THIS PROPERTY AS A RESIDENTIAL DWELLING UNDER A LEGITIMATE RENTAL AGREEMENT, FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING A CERTAIN NUMBER OF DAYS BEFORE THE BUYER CAN REQUIRE YOU TO MOVE OUT. THE FEDERAL LAW THAT REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU THIS NOTICE IS EFFECTIVE UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2012. Under federal law, the buyer must give you at least 90 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If you are renting this property under a fixed-term lease (for example, a six-month or one-year lease), you may stay until the end of your lease term. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer's primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 90 days, even if you have a fixed-term lease with more than 90 days left. STATE LAW NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: IF THE FEDERAL LAW DOES NOT APPLY, STATE LAW STILL REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING BEFORE REQUIRING YOU TO MOVE OUT IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THE PROPERTY AS A TENANT IN GOOD FAITH. EVEN IF THE FEDERAL LAW REQUIREMENT IS NO LONGER EFFECTIVE AFTER DECEMBER 31, 2012, THE REQUIREMENT
UNDER STATE LAW STILL APPLIES TO YOUR SITUATION. Under state law, if you have a fixed-term lease (for example, a sixmonth or one-year lease), the buyer must give you at least 60 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer's primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 30 days, even if you have a fixed-term lease with more than 30 days left. If you are renting under a month-to-month or week-to-week rental agreement, the buyer must give you at least 30 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. IMPORTANT: For the buyer to be required to give you notice under state law, you must prove to the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale that you are occupying and renting this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The name and address of the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale is shown on this notice under the heading "TRUSTEE". You must mail or deliver your proof not later than 10/5/2012 (30 days before the date first set for the foreclosure sale). Your proof must be in writing and should be a copy of your rental agreement or lease. If you do not have a written rental agreement or lease, you can provide other proof, such as receipts for rent you paid. ABOUT YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT Under state law, you may apply your security deposit and any rent you paid in advance against the current rent you owe your landlord. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from you rent payment. You may do this only for the rent you owe you current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any deposit or prepaid rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out. You should contact the buyer to discuss that possibility if you would like to stay. Under state law, if the buyer accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the buyer becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise, the buyer is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf and you must move out by the date the buyer specifies in a notice to you. YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO PAY RENT TO YOUR LANDLORD UNTIL THE PROPERTY IS SOLD TO ANOTHER BUSINESS OR INDIVIDUAL OR UNTIL A COURT OR A LENDER TELLS YOU OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT PAY RENT, YOU CAN BE EVICTED. AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO APPLY A DEPOSIT YOU MADE OR PREPAID RENT YOU PAID AGAINST YOUR CURRENT RENT OBLIGATION. BE SURE TO KEEP PROOF OF ANY PAYMENTS YOU MAKE AND OF ANY NOTICE YOU GIVE OR RECEIVE CONCERNING THE APPLICATION OF
SHC 0808 Class:1
YOUR DEPOSIT OR YOUR PREPAID RENT. IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO TRY TO FORCE YOU TO LEAVE YOUR HOME WITHOUT FIRST GOING TO COURT TO EVICT YOU.

New coaches take over programs Simon Date picked as head coach for SHHS girls
Scappoose grad Scott Stanton to coach SHS boys
With the recent resurgence of Seven Mile War spirit, one man is walking the line between the two cities for the betterment of Columbia County’s soccer on the whole. Simon Date, the new head girls soccer coach at St. Helens High School, doubles as president of the Scappoose Soccer Club. A relative newcomer to the area – he’s lived in Scappoose for three years – the native Brit doesn’t have any deep-seeded roots in the South Columbia County rivalry. But as a soccer player and fan from the UK, he understands a good rivalry. “There’s nothing wrong with a healthy rivalry,” Date said. In his new gig as SHHS coach, he hopes to help create a healthy rivalry between the two girls programs. St. Helens had a down year last season, finishing the school year with a record of 1-12. Scappoose, meanwhile, won
A new coach will take over the Scappoose High School boys soccer team this year, but for longtime Scappoose dwellers, it will not be a new face. SHS class of 2000 graduate Scott Stanton is the Indians’ new coach. He’s been on the job since the final week of school in June and wasted little time getting to know his players and getting them into offseason workouts. Stanton’s staff is made up exclusively of SHS grads. He’ll be assisted by Micah Evans (class of 2000), Marcos Ortiz (’01) and Micah Ortiz (’06). Ryan Poster (’00) will coach the JV team. That sense of community will come through in more ways than having just been around the area. Stanton said one of his big goals is to create more cooperation between the high school program and the youth soccer league in Scappoose. He is a member of the Scappoose Soc-

the Cowapa League and finished 13-2-2. Date’s plan is to implement a classic program at the younger levels – starting around age 10 – to compete against club soccer teams in the Portland area. With the relaSimon Date tively low number of players in the individual cities, he thinks the best way to do that is by merging St. Helens and Scappoose players, and eventually adding players from Rainier, Vernonia and Clatskanie as well. The plan, Date says, is to put together teams by plucking the players who are lookSee DATE, Page A14

cer Club’s board and believes the success of a high school program begins with the development of players when they are younger. “I want to help bridge between the youth system and high school,” Stanton said. One of the Scott Stanton ways he’s planning to do so is by having high school players coach the younger players. That started this week with a four-day youth camp at Scappoose Middle School. SHS players served as instructors at the camp. (See photos on Page A16.) “I want to get them thinking about what’s next. It could be going to college or coaching See STANTON, Page A14

Ryan Martinez blew an engine on Aug. 4, but then borrowed a car and went on to win the main event in the dwarf car division at River City Speedway.
Tenney and Lane earn track sweeps BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
ST. HELENS — Morgan Tenney and Greg Lane both had clean sweeps at River City Speedway on Aug. 4. Tenney dominated the women’s division, winning her heat, the main event and the trophy dash. She also had the fastest lap on record Saturday night. That helped her extend her lead in the points standing over second-place Susan Nelson. In the Pacific mini sprints, it was all Lane. He finished first in his heat, the main
event and the trophy dash, as well as putting up the fastest lap. Tenney’s brother Bryce had the fastest lap time and won the trophy dash in the tracer division. He was third in both the main event and the heat race, with Jonathan West winning both and Baleigh O’Connor second. Elsewhere Joel Beehler and Ryan Martinez stayed atop the points standings in their respective divisions. Beehler won his heat and the main event in the 4-cylinder division to extend his lead over John Oyler. He also clocked the day’s fastest lap in that division. Martinez, similarly, had the fastest lap in
the dwarf car division, won his heat and the main event to stay ahead of second-place Kevin Hicks. Other main event winners included Aaron Elwess in the sportsman, Steffen Strawn in the street stock and Clint Petty in the modified. Dan Smith found success in both the sportsman and modified divisions. He had the fastest lap time of the day in the sportsman. He then finished first in his heat and won the trophy dash in the modified division. The next race is Aug. 18 at the Columbia County Fairgrounds. Racing begins at 5 p.m.
had a hard time sleeping Friday night. I’m not entirely sure why, but I narrowed the cause down to two culprits: the generous serving of fish and chips I had for dinner or the knowledge I’d be jumping out of a plane in the morning. It had to be one of those two things. The previous Monday I had booked a skydiving trip for three others and myself. In the Kyle Boggs days that followed, I never really felt worried. I kept thinking to myself – and telling others – that I was sure my nerves would explode in a sense of panic when I looked out the door of the plane, ready to jump. Turns out I was wrong. That “Oh geez, this is really happening,” moment came a bit sooner – when I saw a group of five hurtle themselves out of an airplane door at 13,000 feet. One more individual tossed himself out of the plane, then Andrew, the first of our group, and his guide shimmied themselves into the atmosphere. Now it was time for my guide, Kirk, and I to follow. All the anticipation leading up to this moment was going disappear. For the better part of a decade, I had wondered what it would be like to drop out of an airplane. For about the last month, I was certain I was going to do it myself. Then when the morning finally came, I wasn’t sure what to think. After we geared up in our harnesses and crammed into the tiny aircraft, an old familiar sensation fluttered up inside my stomach. I can only liken it to the feeling of excitement and anticipation you get before a football game. The nerves started creeping up a little more as the plane crept its way higher and higher. I stole a few glances at what looked like watches on the experienced jumpers around me. They told us our elevation. Five thousand, six thousand, seven thousand… See TRIALS, Page A15
Tribe’s Davidson helps Locals thriving with club teams Portland team to second BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
WAUKEGAN, Ill. — Scappoose’s Charlie Davidson was a key member of the national runner-up FC Portland Navy U15 soccer team. Davidson had one goal and two assists for the Portland-based team during its run to the US Club Soccer U15 National Cup’s championship game. The team lost the championship game to FCX North Black out of Chicago, 2-1, on July 30. In that game, Davidson assisted Hannah Griffiths Boston on Portland’s only goal. FC Portland Navy is made up of players from high school players all over the Portland area, as well as Sherwood, McMinnville and some from Vancouver. The team qualified for the national tournament by winning the Northwest Regional Tournament in Seattle last month. It is the first time Davidson’s squad has qualified for the national tournament.

For many, summer time means summer break. For quite a few girls in St. Helens, it means it’s time to get better at softball. A dozen or so St. Helens softball players participated on A-level club teams from ages 14U through 16U. Those teams recently wrapped up their seasons at various state, regional and national tournaments. The most notable of those teams was the Northwest Blaze, featuring St. Helens High School players Mariah Mulcahy and Michelle Sass. The Blaze finished tied for ninth place out of 114 teams at the 2012 Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) National Championships in Sioux City, N.D. The Blaze finished with a 4-2 record at the national tournaments. The losses came to second-place Team Arizona and seventh-place
Texas Sudden Impact. Mulcahy pitched for the team. When Mulcahy pitched, Sass caught. Sass also played in the outfield. The two will both be sophomores in the fall. Sass’s older sister Sue played outfield for the Oregon Thunder 16U team. The Thunder recently competed in the Premier Girls Fastpitch National Championships in Huntington Beach, Calif. The team won its first bracket game, 2-0, before losing the next two to finish among the top 32 teams there. Stevie Strawn played second base and outfield for another Oregon Thunder 16U team that played at the Triple Crown World Series in Reno July 23-28. SHHS head coach Jeff Edwards said Strawn’s team ended up 3-6 and Strawn played “outstanding outfield.” Alyssa Giesbers played third base for the Newberg Nitro. The Nitro competed at the ASA 16U
Western Nationals in Kaysville, Utah, July 30 through Aug. 4. Full results from the tournament were not available at press time. A handful of St. Helens players were on the Columbia County Wolfpack 14U team that finished seventh at state to qualify for nationals. Haley Fischer, Courtney Anderson, Elizabeth Ziegler, Ashley Giesbers, Taylor Leal, Kayla Finch and Marissa Sanchez helped the Wolfpack beat an impressive Oregon Panthers team and lock up seventh. Brianna Cathers played third base for the 14U Washington Illusion out of Kelso, Wash. The Illusion dropped its first two games at the ASA Western National Tournament in Hillsboro by one run apiece. A number of St. Helens players also played for B and C level teams, but a full list could not be obtained. Results for Scappoose players also were not available.

SHYFL season starting up Bowe’s TD sparks ST. HELENS — The 2012 St. Helens Youth Football League season kicked off on Aug. 6 with the beginning of practices. A week prior, 19 volunteer coaches underwent training with the St. Helens High School football coaches. The 19 coaches will be tasked with leading the 144 players signed up to play football in the SHYFL, which competes in the Tualatin Valley Youth Football League. “We would like to thank all
the volunteers and supporters of the SHYFL, including the St. Helens High School football program. Without them, we would not be able to provide the youth of our community with the quality programs we continue to build and develop each year. Our coaching staff is looking forward to another fantastic year of competition. Go Lions!” said SHYFL board president Darrin Hastings in a press release. In addition to the 144 players, 20 cheerleaders are also
signed up for the season. This will be the first year SHYFL has had cheerleaders. The cheerleaders begin practice on Aug. 8. Players in grades 3-8 are eligible for the SHYFL football and cheerleading programs. All practices and games are at St. Helens Middle School. The first game is Sept. 8. Games will continue every Saturday through October. For more information, visit shyfl.org.
2nd annual Wings & Wheels will take place this Sunday SCAPPOOSE — The second annual Wings & Wheels fly-in and cruise-in will be held at the Scappoose Industrial Air Park on Aug. 12. Airplanes, classic cars and even a model train display will be on hand for the amusement of all spectators. Admission to the event is $5
per person. Children under 7 get in free. Families of four or more need only pay $20. In addition to the planes and automobiles on display, biplane rides will be offered. A number of local food vendors as well as local businesses will set up shop throughout the day as well.
The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Preceding the event, the Northwest Antique Airplane Club hosts a pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. Cost is $6 for adults; free for kids under 6. Wings & Wheels is put on by the South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce.

ing for a bit more competition than they might find in area rec leagues. That should, eventually, help Date achieve one of the goals he has put in place as the Lions coach: to get his players playing at a high enough level of play to attract the attention of college coaches.
That is an area with which Date is familiar. He was recruited out of England by Oregon State University soccer coach Jimmy Conway. Date was a four-year letterwinner for OSU. He then played a season for the Portland Pride professional indoor soccer team in the Continental Indoor Soccer League before the league folded after the 1997 season.
He’s still active, playing in Portland’s Premier League. Date and wife Stephanie own NW Premier Fitness in Scappoose. They have three kids: Naomi, 11, Jack, 7, and Ruby, 5. Date takes over the coaching job for Ryoma Ajisawa, who took the head boys position at SHHS after former coach Neil Ford resigned.
STANTON: focusing on tactics

or reffing,” Stanton said. “I want them to have a way to stay involved with the sport after high school.” In high school, he said he plans on creating a more possession-oriented attack, citing FC Barcelona of Spain as an example of a team he’d like Scappoose to emulate.
So far over the summer, workouts have focused on passing and defense. Stanton said he also likes to devote a lot of time to the tactical side of the game – or as he puts it, knowing where to be and when to be there. Stanton has coached the Scappoose Soccer Club’s U14 boys team for the past few years.
Away from soccer, Stanton works as a web designer and writer, which enables him to have flexibility with his schedule to devote plenty of time to coaching. His parents, Bob and Molly Stanton, both taught in the Scappoose for more than three decades. Stanton takes over for Bob Deuker, who retired in March.
West team to win BAKER CITY — Scappoose High School graduate Stephen Bowe started a third-quarter scoring rally for the West team in the 2012 East-West Shrine Football Game on Aug. 4. Trailing 7-0 in the third period, Bowe rushed for a 3-yard touchdown to jumpstart the West’s offense. The West team ended up winning the game, 31-28, on a 42-yard field goal from Dayton High School’s A.J. Hedgecock as time expired. “I feel like we were definitely the better team. We were just slow starting off,” Bowe said. Bowe, a 2012 grad who
played wide receiver for Scappoose, said he carried the ball about six times. “I had two 20-yard runs, the rest were short gains,” he said. Rainier’s Brad Tripp stood out defensively for the West team, registering a sack among his several tackles. Mitch Staeffler of Rainier and Sean Solberg of Vernonia both played in the game as well. This was Oregon’s 60th annual East-West Shrine Game. It pits star Oregon football players from the 1A-4A classifications against one another. – Kyle Boggs

This story comes from the Aug. 7, 1993 edition of The Sentinel-Mist. Residents run for fun in hot Rainier sun Pinkstaff dedicated to his school, students, fitness When Brad Pinkstaff was in high school, he always wanted to be athletic. But he wasn’t good at football or basketball. He was too small. He couldn’t run fast. He couldn’t jump. But being small is not a handicap in distance running. “I found a home there,” Pinkstaff said of distance running. Pinkstaff, who is the boys varsity and junior varsity cross country coach at Rainier High School and also teaches science there, won the Fun Run five-mile race last weekend at the Rainier Day in the Park with a time of 29:05. But he has been running serious cross-country competitions for 25 years. The coach of the Rainier
varsity cross country team for six years and the Rainier Middle School track coach for nine, Pinkstaff says he has always been interested in running. He is also the wrestling coach at Rainier Middle School. Pinkstaff grew up in Portland and got a degree in biology and a teaching credential from Portland State University. His first job out of college was teaching science at Rainier High School, which he still does. In his second year at the high school, he started coaching track. Then wrestling. But running is his true love. His first track competition was a one-mile run in high school. “I just got hooked on it,” Pinkstaff said. “I always wanted to be athletic. I like to feel in shape whatever I do.” What he does to keep in shape might kill most people. Pinkstaff says he runs 25 to 35 miles a week. But it helps to always have high school students around to coach, he says.
“During the season I run with the team and do whatever workouts they do,” Pinkstaff said. “That’s a real help to staying in shape. That’s one reason I got into coaching, because I got tired of running alone. It is real motivating to be able to keep up with all the kids. And there are always new kids. When I run with them, it’s a motivator for me.” He also has his two young sons, who ride bicycles with him while he runs, and his wife Kay, who finished second among women in the Fun Run. And the motivation has rubbed off on his teams. The Rainier cross-country teams have gone to the state meet three years in a row, highlighted by last year, when Rainier finished second in the Cowapa League and fifth in the state. The state meet consists of the top 2 teams in each 3A High School league in the state. Astoria High School, which finished first over Rainier in the Cowapa League, won the state title.

TRIALS: it takes about six minutes to travel 13,000 feet
Once we got up near 11,000, a strange sense of calm wrapped in excitement overwhelmed the plane’s cabin. Jump time was near. As we hit 13,000, that calm transformed into chaos. It was chaotic in my eyes, at least. Suddenly the door shot up and the quintet was leaping out before I realized what was going on. As soon as they were gone, Kirk and I started scooting forward on our seat. By the time the other individual was out, Kirk had instructed me to put my legs over the foam bench we were sitting on. Right after Andrew and his guide jumped, I heard, “OK scoot toward the door. Put your feet straight out and grab your harness. Look up.” I never had the chance to look out the door of the airplane, realize I was about to plummet 13,000 feet into (hopefully) a field and have a panic attack. Instead, I looked at the roof of the plane, felt Kirk do a few last-second adjustments – no clue what he was doing – and the next thing I knew I was face down catching a bird’s-eye view of Clackamas County, and maybe uttering a curse word or two. I let go of the harness, remembered to breathe and took in quite likely the most incredible feeling I’ve ever felt. Looking at the treetops, the mountains and the cloudless sky I was falling through, it was difficult to grasp exactly what that feeling was – other than a pure adrenaline rush and a sense of sheer enjoyment. The air rushing up at us loosened my hat and I realized I was moving way faster than I had ever moved before – and likely ever will again. By the time Kirk pulled

It took longer – maybe 20 minutes, maybe 30 – for my heart to get back to its normal pace. Before it slowed down, Kirk left me with one final question. “Would you do it again?” “Not today,” I told him, “but absolutely.”
