Pirate ship nearly sunk Trash rates going up BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — A proposed merger between St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union and Clatskaniebased Wauna Federal Credit Union fell apart little more than two weeks after it was anBrooke Van Vleet nounced. According to Wauna FCU President and CEO Robert Blumberg, the talks were called off by St. Helens Community FCU. “This is something the St. Helens Credit Union board voted for. They told me they’re no longer interested in talking with us in regards to mergers,” Blumberg said. Nixing the merger was the first official action of St. Helens Community FCU’s new president and CEO, Brooke Van Vleet. Van Vleet is the former chief administrative officer for First Tech Federal Credit Union, based out of Palo Alto, Calif. In a statement released to credit union members, Van Vleet said, “You have trusted us to act in your best interests and to conduct business with integrity and transparency. You should never expect anything else from your credit union, our board and our leadership.” Van Vleet said she recommended the board terminate the letter of intent to better focus on more immediate needs of credit union members. “I’m very aware that events of the last few months have caused some of you to

A Columbia County Sheriff’s deputy gets ready to pump water from the Royaliste’s hull. The ship began taking on water after being struck by the Portland sternwheeler at the Maritime Heritage Festival. BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
The opening ceremonies for the Maritime Heritage Festival were delayed slightly following a collision between the historic Portland steam sternwheeler and the Royaliste tall ship. Dozens of spectators gathered on the docks for the welcoming ceremony to be conducted by the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde watched in horror as the sternwheeler’s rudder and deck collided with the much smaller vessel. The Royaliste is a popular 50-foot “pirate ship” based out of Portland, which was scheduled to
make its debut at the annual Portland Pirate Festival this summer. The Portland is a 186foot steam powered sternwheeler built in 1947. While attempting to dock, the Portland was moving in reverse and ran into the Royaliste, which was already tied up at the city docks. Damage to the Royaliste was on the starboard side of the vessel and was not visible from the docks but the ship did begin to take on water immediately. Divers went to work the following day to assess the total damage. Co-owner Kate Larsen said it was still too early for an estimate of that damage.
“The diver just came up and it opened up almost all of our seams,” said Larsen. “What happened was that we compressed against the dock; we could feel it and hear it.” The U.S. Coast Guard and the Columbia County Sheriff's Office marine patrol units responded to the incident and began assisting the Royaliste crew with pumping water from the damaged vessel. “She’s trying to seal herself up. They did say if she were fiberglass she would have sunk,” said Larsen. Both agencies are also investigating the cause of the accident. In addition to charges relating to the collision, the Portland may also
be cited from creating a wake in a no-wake zone as it approached the St. Helens City Docks. Larsen also said she and many of the crew of the Royaliste feel their ship likely protected the dock from any damage the sternwheeler might have caused had the tall ship not acted as a buffer between the two. The Royaliste has been under renovation since being brought to Oregon last fall. This recent incident will likely delay that effort and take the ship out of the Portland Pirate Festival. “We’ve worked really hard since last October See COLLISION, Page A4
Hangar project takes flight at airpark BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
SCAPPOOSE — A new 22,000 square-foot hangar at Oregon Aero’s Scappoose headquarters will accommodate the aerospace company’s growing seat department and FAA-approved repair station for seating and aircraft interior upgrade services. The new hangar will be the third building at Oregon Aero headquarters at Scappoose Industrial Airpark. According to Craig Allison, operations manager for the Port of St. Helens, the two entities have been working on the hanger project for quite a while. “The Port and Oregon Aero have considered such a project for some time, but discussions aimed at undertaking this specific project
began in December of 2010, approximately 18 months ago,” said Allison. That means the project was in the works long before the proposed expansion for the Scappoose Urban Growth Boundary received approval. The UGB expansion was approved by the Department of Land Conservation and Development just recently, although an appeal has been filed. “The project will be constructed on port-owned land inside the boundaries of the airpark itself, on land earmarked for some time by the Scappoose Industrial Airpark Master Plan as being slated for such development,” said Allison. “We certainly support the recent UGB expansion, on its own merits, and believe all of these efforts will greatly add to the economic vitality of the airport and the region.”
This project offers tangible benefits to our customers and employees. Tony Erickson COO, Oregon Aero
Oregon Aero supplies maximum-comfort seating and complete aircraft interior upgrades to aircraft manufacturers, aftermarket aviation providers and the public. Oregon Aero said a wide range of fixed wing and rotor wing aircraft will be accommodated in the new hangar. The company anticipates
the expansion also may create the opportunity to hire additional employees. “This project offers tangible benefits to our customers and employees,” said Tony Erickson, chief operating officer for the company. “The expansion will significantly enhance our ability to serve our customers and partners through more efficient and productive seat cushion upgrade work flow.” The Port of St. Helens will construct the hangar and Oregon Aero will lease the facility from the Port. Allison said estimated construction costs for the new hanger will be approximately $1.5 million. Groundbreaking is anticipated to take place in several weeks. Both groundbreaking and projected completion dates will be announced soon.
Two local garbage haulers have asked the county to approve rate hikes for some county customers. Hudson Garbage and Waste Management representatives appeared before the Columbia County board of commissioners on July 11 for scheduled public hearings, a step required to get the rate hikes approved. Todd Dugdale, director for Land Development Services, said each hauler asked for the requests based on the county’s solid waste ordinance guidelines, which says the commissioners have the option to increase or decrease rates depending on the cost of doing business. “Part of that consideration is the determination of a reasonable rate of return to the franchisees based on a percentage of gross receipts,” said Dugdale. According to Dugdale, both Hudson Garbage and Waste Management fell within the county’s guidelines for approving the rate increases as each company’s rate of return has dropped below the county’s acceptable range of 8 to 14 percent, with a target of 11 percent. Dugdale said the ordinance states, “In determining the rates, the board shall define that the rates will be just, fair, reasonable and sufficient to provide proper service.” Dugdale also said a review of each proposal was conducted by the county’s solid waste advisory committee, and that the committee had recommended approval of both requests. The Waste Management request would increase the monthly residential rates for some Scappoose and Vernonia customers. In Scappoose, rates would increase between 2.86 and 4.6 percent, while in Vernonia, rates would increase 3.95 to 4.29 percent. For both areas, the rate for roll carts will increase by just over 2 percent. Waste Management representative Dean Kampfer said increases to labor, fuel, insurance and disposal costs were the primary drivers behind the rate increase request. “More frequent but smaller increases have been found to be much more palatable to the customer than less frequent but larger increases,” See GARBAGE, Page A4
Fire district receives two major grant awards ST. HELENS — Columbia River Fire & Rescue was recently notified by Sen. Ron Wyden’s office that the district has been awarded not one but two large Federal Emergency Management Agency grants. CRF&R Chief Jay Tappan said the district was notified on July 13 that it would be receiving more than $1.3 million in total. “These grants are highly sought after by a large number of fire departments and the process is very competitive,” said Tappan. “Receiving two SAFER [Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response] grants in the same year is very rare and will certainly help the district maintain our service levels as
we continue to deal with this economic downturn.” Tappan said the SAFER grants are intended to assist fire agencies in replacing or augmenting staffing for fire and emergency response services. Both grant applications identified specific staffing needs in the district. The first award, which is approximately $698,000, will fund a volunteer coordinator position and is spread over a fouryear period. The volunteer coordinator will assist with volunteer firefighter recruitment and retention. The second award of $609,000 will go to three paid firefighter/paramedic positions spread over a two-year period.
Tappan said the grant means the district will be able to replace three positions that
had to be cut from the budget two years ago. “This funding helps us maintain the daily staffing levels we identified as crucial to providing the high levels of service we have committed to in our district deployment plan,” said Tappan. According to Tappan, this will bring the total number of paid firefighters on staff back up to 36. As for the volunteer coordinator position, Tappan said this is also a key position for
helping to strengthen not just the district’s volunteer force but also other agencies in the county. The volunteer coordinator will also help the district increase its response readiness. “This grant application was actually written to address needs for the entire county in terms of assisting surrounding fire districts with their volunteer programs,” said Tappan. “The five fire districts in Columbia County have always worked very closely with each other and we hope to further strengthen that with this coordinator position.” All of the new positions, which have strict performance requirements that must be met, are expected to be in
place by about Oct. 1. Tappan also said these grants are classified as “reimbursement grants,” and as such the district will have to fund the positions initially and then be reimbursed by FEMA. Despite the good news, Tappan said that doesn’t mean CRF&R staff won’t keep working to reduce spending and cut costs. “I applaud the teamwork of all of the district’s personnel in helping to work toward solutions to our financial issues and keeping services to our citizens at the high levels they deserve,” Tappan said. He also said both administrative and fire personnel staff have taken pay freezes or delays to help keep costs down and to keep people working.

State closer to implementing coordinated care program The State of Oregon continues to move forward with making Coordinated Care Organizations a reality. In late June, eight new CCOs were certified to begin serving local communities as of Aug. 1. While the coverage area for the newly certified CCOs primarily applies to the southern and central part of the state, exceptions to this were Family Care, Inc., which will cover Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties, along with part of Marion County, and Intercommunity Health Network, which will provide coverage to Benton, Linn and Lincoln Counties. CCOs are health plans that include of all types of health care providers who have agreed to work together in their local communities for people who receive health care coverage under Oregon Health Plan and Medicaid. Although not covered by any of the eight new certified CCOs, Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook counties are also moving closer to implementing a new managed care program. “We have been informed that there is a CCO for Columbia County,” said Columbia County Commissioner Earl Fisher, who has been working with the state, local agencies and health care providers to bring Columbia County’s CCO to completion. The three counties, along with parts of Douglas County, are included in the Columbia Pacific CCO, a collaborative partnership between Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc., and CareOregon. “GOBHI was turned down on the first round because there were some questions that state had about how they were doing things,” said Fisher. “But
they were able to answer the questions the state had about how they were going to operate.” According to a statement issued by GOBHI, its goal is be local enough to be relevant yet large enough to be financially sustainable. “The CPCCO will work within each of the four communities to bring new models of care that are patient-centered and teamfocused, governed by a partnership among local health care providers and community members,” said the statement. This certification of the eight CCOs is just the first wave of certification for the new program. Six additional entities, including Columbia Pacific CCO, were granted provisional certification and are anticipated to begin providing services to clients as of Sept. 1. Additional CCOs are anticipated to begin serving clients on Nov. 1. The coordinated care program originated in 2011 with House Bill 3650, which created the Oregon Integrated and Coordinated Health Care System in response to escalating costs for the state’s health care system. Then, over two legislative sessions in 2011 and 2012, Gov. John Kitzhaber and bi-partisan lawmakers passed legislation to replace the state’s current system. Under the new system, the total funding for OHP and Medicaid patients will be divided up and allocated to each CCO. Each CCO has a specified budget that grows at a fixed rate for mental, physical and ultimately dental care and is accountable for health outcomes of the population they serve. “Everybody in that group has to play by the same rules. They’re taking the money but they’re also tak-
ing the risk,” said Fisher. “What happens if they have two or three catastrophic patients that use up all the money?” Columbia County is estimated to receive about $30 million of the state’s total funding. But Fisher said it isn’t difficult to imagine how just a handful of patients needing expensive treatments could significantly impact the funding available. “Let’s say you had someone with schizophrenia, add in a couple of diabetes cases, a heart and lung transplant, a couple more cancer patients and you can go through that $30 million just like that. What happens then? There’s definitely a risk involved,” he said. In exchange for the funds received, the CCO must agree to serve a specified group of patients regardless of the number of times any patient seeks care, whether it be medical, dental, mental or some other type of care. “If we begin to pay providers for people getting well, instead of paying them for people being sick, at the end of the day you are going to save money,” said Fisher. “Suddenly it is in the provider’s best interest to get the person, and keep that person well.” Medical benefits for OHP and Medicaid patients are not expected to change under the CCO model. In fact, the new programs are intended to make it easier for patients and providers to access services. “CCOs have the flexibility to support new models of care that are patient-centered and team-focused, and reduce health disparities. CCOs are able to better coordinate services and also focus on prevention, chronic illness management and person-centered care,” said the Oregon Health Authority.
“They have flexibility within their budgets to provide services alongside today's OHP medical benefits with the goal of meeting the triple aim of better health, better care and lower costs for the population they serve.” According to Fisher, the real challenge is figuring how the program will actually work. Under the guidelines, CCOs must include medical care providers, dental care providers, mental health professionals and hospitals. There will also be geographic boundaries assigned to those CCOs and in some case, such as hospitals, the provider may belong to more than one CCO. Fisher said figuring out the logistics for these services and overlapping providers has been a challenge for many of the 15 to 20 joint care providers involved in creating Columbia County’s CCO. Statewide there are more than 650,000 Oregon residents served by Oregon Health Plan and Medicaid. In Columbia County, approximately 7,500 individuals are enrolled in OHP and Medicaid programs, in Clatsop County there are about 5,700 individuals enrolled and in Tillamook County, that number is approximately 4,000. More about the Coordinated Care Organizations program can be found online at cco.health.oregon.gov.

GARBAGE: if approved, rates go into effect immediately From PAGE A1 said Kampfer. For Scappoose customers paying $24.94 per month for pickup of one 32-gallon can, the rate will go to $25.72. The rate for pickup of two 32-gallon cans will go from $34.55 to $35.75. In Vernonia, customers paying $23.41 per month for pickup of one 32-gallon can could see their rate increase to $24.34. The rate for pickup of two 32-gallon cans will go from $36.40 to $37.93. Waste Management officials said the company is asking for the increase because the rate of return for the Scappoose area dropped to 7.9 percent while Vernonia dropped to 7.8 percent, and that the rate increases would increase that to the county’s target of 11 percent. Hudson Garbage’s request for a rate increase would apply to St. Helens customers and would increase that company’s rate of return from 6.9 percent to the county’s approved target of 11 percent.
If approved, Hudson Garbage customers will see their rates increase between 9 and 11 percent. Customers now paying $22.32 per month for weekly pick-up of one 32gallon can will see that rate increase o $24.49. For customers paying $38.27 for weekly pickup of two 32-gallon cans, the rate will go to $38.27. Overweight cans, overloaded cans and oversized cans will have the largest increase – 10.85 percent. Currently this rate is $2.12 and
will go to $2.35 There will also be a new rate added to Hudson Garbage’s rate structure if the request is approved. Special trips will now be charged at $20 for each trip. The county commissioners moved the vote to approve or deny the request to July 18 to allow for clarification to the documents provided. If approved, the rate increases for both Hudson Garbage and Waste Management would go into effect immediately.

MERGER: $33M in loans would’ve been available question recent decisions made by our board of directors,” said Van Vleet. The proposed merger was announced in a joint statement issued on July 2. According to the statement, the board of directors for both financial institutions had signed a Letter of Intent to explore the benefits associated with merging. “Officials from both organizations are committed to doing what is right for their membership and the communities they serve,” said Blumberg. “Key factors to these discussions include the impact that the economy and competition has for credit unions of our asset size, plus both credit unions share a common heritage and serve local communities.” Combining Wauna FCU’s $134 million with St. Helens Community FCU’s $162 million would have created a $300 million credit union operating out of Clatsop and Columbia counties. The Wauna FCU board has been under fire recently from its members, first for its decision to fire long-time CEO Jeff Schwarz in April followed by the recent merger announcement. A petition drive is now under way to eject five
of the board’s seven members. The board members targeted for recall are chairman Lea Chitwood, Michael Hafeman, Marty Borrevik, Richard Louie and David Graham. Only vice chair Tom Tussing and Michael Ismert were left unchallenged. The petition needs 500 member signatures to move forward. Once that number is reached, the board of directors would be required to hold a special meeting to allow members to vote on the recall effort. Issues with the board’s decisions surfaced at the credit union’s annual meeting held on June 26, the same meeting word of the possible merger was announced. More than 200 employees and credit union members attended the meeting, more than four times the number usually attending the annual event. “People got all tied up with the emotional things that are going on at St. Helens Credit Union and not looking at the benefits. It’s unfortunate,” said Blumberg. Both members and employees at the meeting questioned the decision to fire Schwarz given the credit union’s solid financial performance over the past few years. Interim CEO Charlotte
Hart, who has now been replaced by Van Vleet, also came under fire for what some saw as a lack of financial experience needed to run a financial institution of St. Helens Community FCU’s size. “It is insane to think she is in charge of such a large credit union without the knowledge of the daily operations or regulations,” said one member. Hart and Darrel Purkerson were voted off the board at the June 26 meeting, although Purkerson is still serving on the supervisory committee. As for the merger, Blumberg says he would consider the idea again − maybe. “If they were to invite me back, I would come to the table. But would we explore it again? Possibly,” he said. “In terms of scalability, there’s a lot more things you can do with a bigger balance sheet. You put resources into dropping loan rates and increasing deposit rates.” Blumberg said a merger between the St. Helens and Wauna credit unions could translate to an additional $33 million in small business loans being made available locally. “That will be lost. That is a big benefit to the community,” he said.

Opinion THE CHRONICLE
Wednesday, July 18, 2012
LETTERS Pros and cons The article written on coal train wrecks and igniting safety concerns brought up other concerns as well. These concerns are that these articles are not balanced, as all arguments should be. I found this article only to be written as fear projecting and mongering with some poorly made statements by Mr. VanderHeuvel, such as “coal trains cause train derailments” and his statement of “it’s just a function of dust coming off the trains and getting down in the ballasts.” What a bunch of malarkey. Derailments come down to equipment failure and human error. They involve a whole variety of different trains made up with a menagerie of different style cars and products we use in our daily lives. Coal is one of the most harmless materials on the tracks these days compared to the huge amount of hazardous materials transported by rail daily, through not only Oregon but all over this great nation. The Department of Transportation doesn’t classify coal as a hazardous material and requires no placarding of such product. Coal dust is covered with a sprayed on, polymer-type sealant/cement prior to shipment, which is used for dust control. Mr. Mayo wrote a couple weeks ago explaining how the facts of this business are being only written to favor the bias against this business instead of the true facts. Oregon and Washington need jobs brought into these states
and we need to quit always spreading fear and need to actually spread a balanced argument – pros and cons. Nathan Eggers, St. Helens Get involved Those of us who have spent most of our lives in and around Columbia County pretty much have spent a great deal of that time in and around county waterways. Think about it – a large share of the county follows the course of the Columbia River and every creek in the county flows into the river. I joined some dear friends last Sunday on the Nehalem River out of Vernonia. We packed some sandwiches and soft drinks and spent three hours walking up and down an area in the river. When I say “in the river,” that is what I mean. We walked in water that sometimes reached chest high looking for treasures crawdads and bright colored rocks. I had a wonderful day. The water was clear and the woods smelled clean and fresh. My husband and I spent untold hours on the Columbia in our various boats when our children were still at home. One incident remains in my mind and changed the way we felt about the river. Our daughter was waterskiing behind the boat. She was an excellent skier and seldom ever fell. This time, however, she did fall and she fell right at the confluence of the Columbia River and the Willamette Slough – right near where the paper mill
dumped their black liquor into the river. We pulled her out of the river and she was dripping with greasy slime, which could only be washed off with warm water and soap. Needless to say, our boat outings no longer involved the Columbia River. We instead traveled to the lakes in Oregon and Washington. I do not know how much the beautiful Columbia River has been cleaned up since that time but I still hear warnings about overflow from sewage lines in Portland being dumped into the Willamette and thus into the Columbia. And when I walk along the river, it still does not smell good. Now another black slime could contaminate our waterways and our lands. Two coal companies, owned by people on another continent, want to fill barges and rail cars with coal and drag them through our county and down our river so that they can make money. The few jobs created by this fiasco is not worth the damage to our environment. If you have never gotten involved in something in your life, now is the time to do it. Stand up to your political leaders and to these billion dollar companies and tell them a resounding “no.” Stop this backroom dealing now. It has gone on for far too many years and it needs to end. Nancy Whitney, St. Helens Voice of morality I feel compelled to re-
peat the following letter … with a pressing point added. The “church” does not have, nor should it have, “political” clout, that is, direct political or economic clout.
But the church does have, indeed should have, a voice. Use it, church. Use it; loudly and now. The U.S. Supreme Court has just slashed a critical artery in the moral blood-
stream of our land, and our land is morally dying. And only you, church, have that desperately needed, healing voice of morality. Dean Nichols, Scappoose

CIMARRON (M) - Cimarron is a shepherd mix that is right around 60lbs. When he first came to the shelter he was a little shy, but now he is turning out to be a real clown. He loves to get his attention in the morning when you are putting him out in his kennel. He is not reactive to the other dogs at all, in fact he acts like a real gentleman. Due to his size and his breed we are looking for a family that is going to be active with him, he is going to require daily exercise and room to run. He can be a little shy when meeting new people and going into new places. He loves to play with toys and run around. If you're looking for a great addition to your family then this is your guy!

The beneficiary may require as a condition to reinstatement that you provide reliable written evidence that you have paid all senior liens or encumbrances, property taxes, and hazard insurance premiums. These requirements for reinstatement should be confirmed by contacting the undersigned Trustee. By reason of said default, the beneficiary has declared all sums owing on the obligation secured by said trust deed immediately due and payable, said sums being the following: UNPAID PRINCIPAL BALANCE OF $206,089.92, PLUS interest thereon at 4.58875% per annum from 05/01/11 to 5/31/2011, 4.572% per annum from 06/01/11 to 06/30/11,4.56030 per annum from 07/1/2011 to 07/31/2011, 4.56150 per annum from 08/1/2011 to 08/31/2011, 4.58522 per annum from 09/1/2011 to 09/30/2011, 4.60494 per annum from 10/1/2011 to 10/31/2011, 4.61833 per annum from 11/1/2011 to 11/30/2011, 4.62672 per annum from 12/1/2011 to 12/31/2011, 4.61833 per annum from 11/1/2011 to 11/30/2011, 4.65985 per annum from 1/1/2012 to 1/31/2012, 4.65660 per annum from 2/1/2012 to 2/29/2012, 4.62250 per annum from 3/1/2012 to 3/31/2012, 4.61675 per annum from 4/1/2012 to 4/30/2012, 4.61475 per annum from 5/1/2012 until paid, together with escrow advances, foreclosure costs, trustee fees, attorney fees, sums required for the protection of the property and additional sums secured by the Deed of Trust. WHEREFORE, notice hereby is given that the undersigned trustee, will on November 7, 2012, at the hour of 11:00 AM, in accord with the standard of time established by ORS 187.110, at AT THE FRONT ENTRANCE OF THE NEW COLUMBIA COUNTY COURTHOUSE, STRAND STREET, ST. HELENS, County of COLUMBIA, State of OREGON, sell at public auction to the highest bidder for cash, the interest in the said described property which the grantor had, or had the power to convey, at the time of the execution by him of the said trust deed, together with any interest which the grantor or his successors in interest acquired after the execution of said trust deed, to satisfy the foregoing obligations thereby secured and the costs and expenses of sale, including a reasonable charge by the trustee. Notice is further given that any person named in ORS 86.753 has the right, at any time prior to five days before the date last set for the sale, to have this foreclosure proceeding dismissed and the trust deed reinstated by payment to the beneficiary of the entire amount then due (other than such portion of the principal as would not then be due had no default occurred) and by curing any other default complained of herein that is capable of being cured by tendering the performance required under the obligation or trust deed, and in addition to paying said sums or tendering the performance necessary to cure the default, by paying all costs and expenses actu-
ally incurred in enforcing the obligation and trust deed, together with trustee’s and attorney’s fees not exceeding the amounts provided by said ORS 86.753. In construing this notice, the masculine gender includes the feminine and the neuter, the singular includes the plural, the word “grantor” includes any successor in interest to the grantor as well as any other person owing an obligation, the performance of which is secured by said trust deed, and the words “trustee” and “beneficiary” include their respective successors in interest, if any. Anyone having any objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever will be afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the same. 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 six-month 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-tomonth 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 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. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS, YOU MAY WISH TO CONSULT A LAWYER. If you believe you need legal assistance, contact the Oregon State Bar at 800-452-7636 and ask for lawyer referral service. Contact information for the Oregon State Bar is included with this notice. If you do not have enough money to pay a lawyer and are otherwise eligible, you may be able to receive legal assistance for free. Information about whom to contact for free legal assistance may be obtained through Safenet at 800SAFENET. DATED: 7/6/2012 REGIONAL

Scappoose takes District One crown 10- and 11-year-old team wins title; two teams from St. Helens still alive in state tournaments BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
Steady hitting throughout the lineup and a plethora of pitching talent helped the Scappoose 10- and 11-year-old Little League All-Stars go undefeated through the Oregon District 1 Tournament. Scappoose wrapped up the tournament title with a 12-5 win over Rose City on July 10. Robby Walsh belted two triples in the game. “He hit the ball real hard,” said coach Joe Backus. Backus said the team got great hitting from everyone. “We’ve been hitting really well top to bottom, jumping on teams early,” he said. Scappoose scored four runs in the first inning, four in the
second and four in the fourth in the championship game to take a 12-0 lead. Rose City pushed across five in the bottom of the fourth, but couldn’t score any more the rest of the game. Earlier in the tournament, Scappoose took an 11-0 lead against Rose City during a firstround game. They ended up winning, 16-10. Despite the onslaught of runs, Backus said it was his team’s defensive performance that locked up that victory. “Defensively we’ve been playing really well, not too many errors. I thought the teams were very competitive,” he said. “We were up 11-0 — I didn’t think we were that much better, we just didn’t make as many errors as the other teams. See STATE, Page A14 Scappoose won the 2012 10- and 11-year-old District One Little League championship.

Why try milking wild cows? BY KYLE BOGGS From left, Luccus Berns, Brian Daniels and Marty Liesegang try controlling a cow during the 2011 wild cow milking competition.
yearlong back bruise seems a heavy price to pay for a squirt of milk. At least, to most people it does. To Marty Liesegang and his wild cow milking cohorts, that’s part of the price to pay for pride — and prize payouts. Team Jackpot, with Liesegang, Luccus Berns and Brian Daniels, will be one of the teams dragged by a cow around the arena Friday and Saturday night at the Columbia County Rodeo. Their goal? To get enough milk from that cow into a bottle that a judge can pour out at least a drop. As the team has learned in its years together, that’s no easy task. “We’re sore on Sunday,” Liesegang said, before jogging his memory: “We’re sore on Saturday.” Team Jackpot has competed in both the Fri-
WILD COW MILKING When: Friday and Saturday night. The rodeo starts at 7 p.m. Where: Columbia County Rodeo Why: Teams pay $150 each night with the first-place team taking the cash pot. Winning teams also have their name engraved on the Mike Larson Memorial Plaque, named for the winningest cow milker. day and Saturday competition each of the last five years. They’ve won a handful of the competitions as well, which is why they keep coming back despite the torture the cows put them through. The cows pull the three-person teams from one end of the arena to another. Sometimes a
cow will roll over one of the people. Inevitably someone will get stepped on. “I had a hoof print on the middle of my back for a year. It healed just before the fair (last year),” Liesegang said. Then he was back at it both days again last year. There was no hoof print Friday night. There was still some pain, but not enough to keep him down Saturday. “Saturday Luccus and I took a lot of Advil. It doesn’t feel as bad if you win the jackpot though,” he said. So just what is it that makes this team so successful at such a challenging task — trying to squeeze milk out of an unpredictable beast? Liesegang said having worked together for so long is one of the keys. Each of the three members has an assigned role: Liesegang is the anchor, Berns is the mugger and Daniels is the
milker. They’ve all taken on these roles and expect the best from one another. “Without each person giving it all they got, you’re not gonna win,” Liesegang said. As the anchor, Liesegang is in the chute with the cow. He’s usually the smallest anchor in the chute. Once the whistle blows, the anchor’s job is to control the cow to a designated line outside the chute. Normally that doesn’t happen. A 150-pound person trying to corral a 1,000-pound creature with a rope isn’t exactly easy. “You’ve got six guys and six cows in the chute. There’s 12 guys waiting. So then you have six cows and 18 guys running around the arena. It’s utter chaos,” said Liesegang, owner of Jackpot Market in Scappoose. See COWS, Page A15
7 Mile War scrimmages provide school supplies Even though nearly two months remain before the first high school soccer games will be played, St. Helens and Scappoose gathered on July 16 for the first of a home-and-home scrimmage series between the two teams. The St. Helens boys beat Scappoose, 6-1, in the first game. Scappoose’s girls responded with a 2-0 win in the nightcap. The scrimmages are meant to provide some competitive experience for the teams. More importantly, however, they’re meant to provide school supplies for local schools and preschools. Admission to the contests is free, but organizers request attendees bring a donation of school supplies. The teams will play again on July 23, this time in St. Helens. The boys will again play first, at 4 p.m. at Grace Baptist Church. The girls will follow at 6 p.m. In addition to the scrimmages, both programs have other summertime activities going on. On July 18, there are two
matches at St. Helens High School. The first is the St. Helens Youth Soccer Association U12 boys Black Ninja squad taking on the SHYSA U12 girls team. It will begin at 5:30 p.m. Following at 7:30 will be the SHHS boys team against a St. Helens High School alumni team. Admission is $1 with all money going to the SHHS boys soccer team. Scappoose hosts a youth camp Aug. 6-9. U7-U9 players (grades 1-3) will be from 9-11 a.m. U10-U14 players (grades 4-8) will be from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The camps will be at Scappoose Middle School. They are open to anyone enrolled in the Scappoose rec soccer program. Cost is $40 for the younger group and $60 for the older group. All proceeds go to the Scappoose high school soccer programs.

St. Helens 14U team finishes 2nd in state The St. Helens 14U fastpitch softball team took second place in the 2012 ASA State Tournament earlier this month. St. Helens entered the state tournament carrying an impressive 10-3 record for the season. The local team went through the first day of bracket play undefeated, playing teams with much more tournament experience than themselves. That set up a game with the top seed in the tournament. St. Helens pushed the game to sudden death using the
international tiebreaker. St. Helens won, 5-4, in eight innings. St. Helens suffered its first loss in the championship game against the Lake Oswego Renegades. Lake Oswego won, 5-3. With each team having suffered one loss at this point – as well as plenty of rain limiting available field time – the two teams moved into yet another international tie-breaker. This time St. Helens couldn’t come out on top, finishing second in the tournament. “All of the coaches are very
proud of how hard each one of the girls played and more importantly how they came together as a team,” said coach Jennifer Massey. “We all agree that this was a fantastic season full of personal growth, dedication, drive, teamwork and exceptional sportsmanship. We look forward to watching these young ladies continue to excel and achieve amazing results. We also thank all of the players’ parents for their positive support, encouragement and relentless commitment to supporting the team.” Courtesy photo

When you get four or five outs an inning, you start scoring.” In the second round, Scappoose beat Wilshire/Riverside, 12-9. Scappoose also won the sportsmanship award. Scappoose then moved on to the state tournament in Hermiston. Scappoose lost to Pendleton, 14-4, on July 14. Scappoose was eliminated on July 15 by Sprague in a 4-3 loss.
St. Helens Juniors start 1-0 St. Helens started the 2012 Oregon State Junior Baseball Tournament off on the right foot, beating Crook County 122 on July 14. Justin Henningsen and Quintin Galvin split pitching duties to hold Crook County to two runs. St. Helens played the host team, Parrish, on July 17. A St. Helens win would assure the locals first place out of Pool B. A loss would create a three-way tie. The top two teams from pool play advance to the semifinals.
St. Helens 9/10s drop 1st three The St. Helens 9- and 10year-old team opened the Oregon State Tournament at Lake Oswego Little League against a very tough La Grande team. La Grande won the first game, 20-5, on July 13. St. Helens dropped an 11-0 game against Murrayhill on July 14. St. Helens came close to its first win on July 15, dropping a 10-8 game against Grants Pass. St. Helens’ first three opponents had a combined record of 7-1 through the first three rounds. St. Helens concluded the tournament on July 17 against Gresham, a team that was 2-0
No locals emerge from 11/12 The only Division One tournament to wind up without a champion from Columbia County was the 11- and 12year-old bracket. St. Helens, however, made it a close call. St. Helens won its first two games in the double-elimination tournament. St. Helens beat Lakeside/Peninsula, 12-3, in the opener on July 7. That was followed by a 7-5 come-from-behind win over Interstate/Kenton/Willamette on July 12. Drake Dow led the

team with three hits in that game. Kyle Harris picked up the win on the mound. Justin Vielmetti and Derek Badger both had RBI doubles. That would be the last win for St. Helens in the tournament. A 2-1 semifinal loss to Wilshire/Riverside put St. Helens in the consolation bracket. St. Helens was then eliminated by Hollywood/Rose City, 18-4. Scappoose dropped its first game of the tournament to Hollywood/Rose City, 4-2. The orange and black squad put up a fight in the consola-
tion bracket. Scappoose beat Clatskanie, 20-1, on July 8. Next was a 1312 win over Lakeside/Peninsula. On July 13, Scappoose beat Rainier, 3-2. In a rematch against Hollywood/Rose City on July 14, Scappoose lost, 145. Rainier finished the tournament 1-2. Rainier beat Parkrose, 8-1, before losing to Wilshire/Riverside, 6-0, and Scappoose. Clatskanie was 0-2 with a 5-1 loss to I/K/W and the loss to Scappoose.
St. Helens Football Camp is July 23-26 ST. HELENS — The St. Helens Lions Summer Football Camp is planned for July 23-26 from 6-8 p.m. each evening.

ALBANY — The Northwest Blaze 14U softball team finished third in the Oregon A State Tournament July 1315. Incoming St. Helens High School sophomores Mariah Mulcahy and Michelle Sass both play for the Blaze and continued Mariah Mulcahy their impressive summers during the tournament. NW Blaze won its first four games at Michelle Sass state by a combined score of 40-0. Blaze then dropped a 5-2 decision and a 1-2 loss ended their tournament. In the first game of the tournament, Mulcahy pitched a two-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts. For the tournament on the whole, Mulcahy pitched 23 2/3 innings and allowed only two earned runs. Sass did her part at the plate, driving in eight runs during the tournament. Her biggest offensive outing
came in the fourth game of the tournament, a 10-0 win over Oregon SWAT in five innings. Sass had a two-run single in the third inning and a three-run triple in the fourth. Both of the St. Helens players have posted impressive numbers throughout the season. For the full season – dating back to June 1 – Mulcahy has struck out 112 batters in 120 innings pitched. She has allowed only 10 earned runs for an ERA of 0.58. Opponents are hitting .196 against her and she has a record of 14-8. Sass is hitting .373 with 17 RBIs. Her average is even better with runners in scoring position, when she is batting .400. She also has eight stolen bases while splitting time at catcher and in the outfield. The Blaze went 5-2 during a 49-team tournament in Denver to open the month of July. Prior to that, the Blaze finished fourth out of 26 teams during a tournament in Oklahoma City. The fourth-place finish earned NW Blaze a berth in the 14U ASA Nationals in Sioux Falls, S.D., in August. Mulcahy and Sass were both second-team All-State selections as freshmen for St. Helens. – Kyle Boggs

Weekend Fishing Opportunities From July 2-31, fishing is open for summer steelhead and chinook jacks from Tongue Point upstream to Bonneville Dam. Summer chinook and steelhead retention is allowed through July 31 from Bonneville Dam upstream to the Oregon/Washington border. Sturgeon retention is allowed three days per week (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) from Marker 82 downstream to Wauna power lines through July 31 with a 38- to 54-inch fork length restriction in effect.
The following modifications are now in effect for the Columbia River mainstem: From Buoy 10 upstream to the Tongue Point/Rocky Point line, this section of the river is closed to angling for salmon and steelhead, but is open for shad fishing. From July 2-31 in the area from the Tongue Point/Rocky Point line upstream to Bonneville Dam, retention of adult chinook and sockeye is prohibited. Retention of summer steelhead and summer chinook jacks (12-24 inches) is allowed under permanent regulations. On July 7, 170 salmonid boats, one shad boat and 181 Oregon salmonid bank anglers and three Oregon shad bank anglers were counted. Boat anglers had the
best success in the estuary where anglers averaged 2.32 steelhead caught per boat. In the Portland to Longview area, boat anglers averaged 0.64 steelhead per boat. Boat anglers in the gorge averaged 0.20 steelhead and 0.20 jack chinook per boat. In Troutdale, boat anglers averaged 0.17 steelhead per boat. Bank anglers in the gorge had the best succes, averaging 0.25 steelhead per angler. Anglers in the estuary averaged 0.19 steelhead per angler. Bank anglers in the Portland to Longview area averaged 0.12 steelhead and 0.01 jack chinook per angler.

cause serious damage to apples. The codling moth lays her eggs singly on the apples. The egg hatches and the emerged larvae eat their way toward the core of the apple, leaving behind a rather large tunnel and a damaged core. This is the classic “worm in the apple”. The codling moth started to fly about two months ago. New broods will continue to emerge and lay eggs over the summer. The apple maggot is the larva of a fly. The fly emerges in late June and continues to emerge for some weeks. The female lays her eggs on the fruit. The eggs hatch into little maggots. They burrow into the flesh but don’t leave the obvious tunnels of the codling moth. However, high feeding damage will leave the fruit soft and “pulpy”. It is both un-appetizing and won’t store at all. The codling moth has been here since European settlement. The apple maggot arrived in Columbia County from the Midwest about 25 years ago. Codling moth feeding is more common and more damaging than apple maggot injury. However, localized trees or orchards can sustain a lot of maggot damage some years.

sturgeon is allowed Thursday, Friday and Saturday until July 31 with a daily limit of one white sturgeon with a fork length between 38-54 inches. On July 7, 131 sturgeon boats and 12 Oregon bank anglers were counted. Sturgeon angling was fair this past weekend, with boat anglers fishing the Portland to Longview area having the best success, averaging 0.12 legal sturgeon per boat. Portland to Longview bank: Weekend checking showed one sublegal sturgeon released for nine anglers. Portland to Longview boats: Weekend checking showed nine legal sturgeon kept, plus 106 sublegal sturgeon released for 74 boats (192 anglers).
The most effective product for both pests is one that contains spinosad. It is considered to be organic. Carbaryl can also be effective. Read and follow all label instructions. Some gardeners have been trapping apple maggot flies with some success. One technique uses red rubber balls smeared with either a commercial product like Tanglefoot™ or 90 weight lubricating grease and hung in the trees. The red, round sphere tricks the fly into seeing an apple and they are trapped in the sticky goo. The balls need to be scraped and the grease reapplied at intervals. Another trap uses smell to lure the flies to their death. To make this trap, cut an opening in the side of a plastic milk jug. Leave enough of the side so that the jug will hold 1-2 cups of liquid. Mix one-quarter cup of cider vinegar and two tablespoons of molasses in one-half cup of water. Pour the mixture into the jug. It will smell bad over time but it is said that the worse it smells, the better it works. Periodically pour the liquid through a sieve to remove the dead flies and re-use the mixture.
COWS: milked mostly by locals From PAGE A13 He said his approach is to try controlling the cow’s momentum and direction as best as he can so it’s easy for Berns to get the cow in a headlock. Once Berns gets ahold of it, the cow is usually under control. Then it’s time to milk. “When we get it slowed, Brian slips under to milk it,” Liesegang said. After Daniels gets the milk into a bottle, he has to find the judges and run the milk to them. Then, as stated in the official Columbia County Wild Cow Milking Rules, “judge will pour milk out. There must be enough milk in bot-
tle for milk to visibly drop or pour from bottle and hit ground.” That means Daniels and the other milkers need to either run steady or cover the bottle with their hand to keep the milk inside. There are a few other rules that go along with the competition. A team has to milk its own cow. The cow has to be standing when it’s milked. And this all has to take place within a fiveminute time span. These milkers are not competing as part of the NPRA, although there is good prize money. (There is a cow milking competition on the NPRA circuit but that is with two people and a
horse.) Even though it’s not sanctioned, it’s right up there with bull riding as a favorite of the fans. “It’s almost all locals. I think the audience likes it because they see local people out there getting beat up,” Liesegang said. Having mostly locals behind the gates before the competition adds an element of excitement as well. “There’s some trash talking. We’re all friends before and after, but you’re not gonna tell your secrets,” Liesegang said. For Team Jackpot, the goal is no secret: They want their name etched onto the Mike Larson Memorial Plaque once more.
