More than 30 firefighters were called to the Aug. 24 blaze that completely destroyed the St. Helens Les Schwab tire store on U.S. Highway 30. Employees from the store have been assigned to other Les Schwab locations while the company works on getting a temporary site set up.

Fire destroys Les Schwab store BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

ST. HELENS —Thick columns of black smoke rolled into the sky as a two-alarm fire ripped through the Les Schwab tire store on U.S. Highway 30 in St. Helens. The Aug. 24 fire closed the highway in both directions, rerouting rush-hour commuters headed home for the weekend and cutting off power to neighboring homes and businesses. Columbia City resident John Weinman was one of two customers

in the store when the fire broke out. Luckily, Weinman’s car had not yet been moved into the service area and escaped serious damage. “Five minutes later and it would have been in the garage with the wheels off,” said Weinman. The two-alarm fire began shortly after 4 p.m. when someone at the store noticed a grassy area behind the business was on fire. Employees quickly called 9-1-1 and then rushed outside with fire extinguishers to put out the small blaze. Unfortunately, their efforts were unsuccessful and the flames quickly

spread – first to the shop and then the display area of the tire store. Witness shares first-hand account “One of the runners came in and said there was a fire out back. They called the fire department right away and a couple of the guys that worked there grabbed fire extinguishers and tried to put it out, but that didn’t work,” Weinman said. He also said the fire quickly spread through the shop and then into the customer service area, office and waiting room, filling everything with black smoke.

Despite the speed of the fire, Weinman credits the quick thinking of employees and the firefighters with being able to get everyone out safely. “My hat’s off to the fire department. They were just excellent,” said Weinman. “They even gave me a ride down to McDonalds so I could get home.” Crews from Columbia River Fire and Rescue, Scappoose Rural District and Clatskanie Fire District See FIRE, Page A4

Log exports drive timber harvest increases BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Data recently released by the Oregon Department of Forestry shows that timber harvest levels statewide have increased for the second year in a row. Harvests, which were at a low of 2.75 billion board feet in 2009 following the collapse of the domestic housing market in 2008, posted gains in 2010 and 2011. In 2011, approximately 3.65 billion board feet were harvested in Oregon, an increase of 32 percent from 2009’s low and 13 percent from 2010’s harvest numbers. “Much of these gains can be attributed to an active export market to Eastern Asia, especially China,” said Brandon Kaetzel, the Oregon Department of Forestry’s principal forest economist. “The U.S. housing market’s slow recovery and other

domestic markets are also driving demand for Oregon wood products.” Locally, both Columbia and Clatsop counties have seen similar harvest increases. Columbia County,

which had seen a decline of more than 26 percent in 2008 and another drop of nearly 2 percent in 2009, has rebounded to pre-2009 export numbers.

In 2011, Columbia County harvest 144,864 board feet, compared to 115,536 board feet in 2008. However, harvests are still down from 2007’s 155,993 board feet harvested. “If you go all the way back to 2006 and throw out the low and throw out the high and average that out, I would say the harvest in Columbia County is on the average of what you might normally see,” said Weyerhauser’s Greg Miller. “It is coming up a bit because a lot of land owners – although I can’t speak for all of the land owners in Columbia County – had deferred a bit during the down demand.” Now that demand for timber, especially log exports to Asian markets, has increased, some of those land owners have begun harvesting their properties. “Our harvest is up a little bit, not See TIMBER, Page A6

RAINIER — A grant from the Oregon Transportation Commission will help local timber and shipping company Teevin Brothers build a new “T-pier” at its Columbia River facility that will also create much-needed jobs. Teevin Brothers will receive $2.2 million for construction of the pier, which will have a total construction cost of $2.8 million. “We elected to go with that project because we have an existing barge dock and it will be very similar. It will only be able to take barges –

Fire damages Warren home

Three others were evaluated and treated at the scene. The driver of the car was among those treated and released at the accident while the two individuals on the motorcycle were transported to a Portland-area hospital.

Backpack program becomes a reality Nearly 50 percent of all children enrolled in St. Helens elementary schools receive free or reduced price meals during the school year. For many of these children, these meals might be the most substantial meals they get during the week. But on weekends, when school meals are not available, many children go hungry. Hungry children are sick more often, and experience more learning problems than children who are getting enough to eat, making it difficult for them to succeed at school. A volunteer committee established earlier this year has been working diligently to implement a new program that will serve the students of St. Helens School District elementary schools. The Backpack Program will provide bags filled with child-friendly, non-perishable foods that children take home on the weekends dur-

ing the school year in their backpacks. The backpack program is currently established as a local member agency of Columbia Pacific Food Bank, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. The program is scheduled to kick off in October.

In March, St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union, through its community outreach program CU 4 A CAUSE, announced a donation match up to $5,000 for all funds deposited to the St. Helens Backpack Program through March 31.

The total sum donated was $1,684.50. That total is now nearly $3,400 thanks to the donation match from SHCFCU. But additional funds are still needed for the program to help 20 students at each elementary school during the 2012-13 school year. The credit union will continue to raise awareness – and funds – for the program through the CU 4 A CAUSE community outreach program. Food drives will also be held at First United Methodist Church. Businesses or individuals in Columbia County can sponsor a child for an entire year for just $250.

WARREN — Area firefighters have certainly been keeping busy lately. Along with spending several hours at the Les Schwab tire store fire in St. Helens on Aug. 24 and Aug. 25, fire crews from Columbia River Fire & Rescue and Scappoose Rural Fire District were called to a residential structure fire at 57899 Fisher Lane at around 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 26. Crews arrived to find a two-story family residence with smoke coming from the eave lines of the roof. Fire crews made an aggressive interior fire attack to the second story of the home in order to confine the fire to the attic area of the structure. According to Division Chief Brian Burright, the quick actions taken by fire

fighters limited the fire and smoke damage to the second story and the attic leaving much of the personal belongings on the first floor safe and intact. The fire was declared under control after 45 minutes, but fire personnel worked for another two hours to ensure all the hot spots were extinguished. The home is owned by Chris Lieziert and is insured. The fire was determined to be accidental with fire officials narrowing the cause to electrical wiring in the attic area of the home CRF&R responded with four fire engines, a rescue unit, and several support vehicles. Scappoose Fire responded with an engine and a logistics unit. A total of 18 fire personnel were on scene with no reported injuries.

Discussion on flouride in Scappoose Sept. 4

One last splash before school

SCAPPOOSE – The debate over the safety of fluoridated water has come to the forefront once again, now that Oregon Citizens for Safe Drinking Water, which is opposed to a plan to add fluoride to Portland’s water, is asking voters to ban the substance in 2014. Portland’s city council recently voted to add fluoride to the water supplies of nearly 900,000 residents in Portland, Gresham, Tigard and Tualatin. Supporters and opponents of fluoridated water will have a chance to make their voices heard locally, too, now that the discussion has been added to the agenda for the next city council meeting on Sept. 4. Scappoose has been adding fluoride to its water supply since 2000. According to City Manager Jon Hanken, there has been very little comment from the public or elected officials about it over the years. “There was a policy decision made by the council to fluoridate the water and we’ve been fluoridating it ever since. We provide the fluoride at a rate that’s proscribed, right now it’s .07 parts per million,”

said Hanken. The discussion item was added to the city council agenda at the request of one of the councilors. For Hanken, who grew up in the Midwest where the practice of adding fluoride to the water is common practice, it’s really a non-issue. “Most of the time, people just call and ask if we add fluoride to the water. We say yes and that’s it,” Hanken said. Unlike Scappoose, St. Helens’ water supply does not contain fluoride. And plant operator Howie Burton hopes to keep it that way. “I worked for a water utility in Alaska and there we did add fluoride. It’s the only product that I’ve ever seen out of all these hazardous chemicals that are around, like chlorine and caustic soda, that had a skull and crossbones on the package,” said Burton. “It was very dangerous for us to add it.” The Scappoose City Council meets in council chambers, 33568 East Columbia Ave., on Sept. 4 due to the holiday weekend. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.

spent two hours getting the fire under control, although the site continued to smolder well into the weekend. As of 6:30 p.m., power was restored to all but 40 of the homes and businesses in the surrounding area, according to Columbia River PUD. Utility crews had to wait until the following morning to get the all clear from fire officials to restore power to the remaining lines, said CRPUD spokesperson Libby Calnon. “The issue was that there was a power line that ran right along the highway in front of the store. In order for the firemen to work safely around that, they asked us to de-energize the line,� said Calnon. Businesses affected by the power outage included Safeway, WalMart, Dollar Tree, McDonalds, Taco Bell and others. It is not yet known if any of the businesses neighboring the Les Schwab store were damaged by the blaze or smoke. Company plans to rebuild Les Schwab Tire Centers issued the following statement in response to the fire on Aug. 25: “The Les Schwab Tire Center in St. Helens suffered extensive fire and water damage yesterday from a fire that broke out around 4 p.m. All customers and employees were safely evacuated and there were no injuries. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. We understand that the fire began outside the store and then spread to the interior. The fire was contained within approximately two hours and continues to be monitored.�

“We are thankful that no employees, customers or members of the fire and police were injured in this event and we are grateful to emergency responders and members of the community for their help and support. Employees from the Les Schwab St Helens store will be working at other Les Schwab stores assisting customers. The nearest Les Schwab store is located at 51531 SE 2nd St, Scappoose, Oregon. Customers can access their account from any Les Schwab location.� Les Schwab also set up a hotline at the Scappoose store to respond to customer inquiries. The hotline number is (503) 543-3675.

enger hunts and interactive games with The Pirates of Puget Sound; giant inflatable rides such as The Kraken and free balloons and face painting by beautiful mermaids. “Sadly, we’re not going to have our tall ship there,� said event organizer Kate Larsen, referring to the Royaliste, the 50-foot “pirate� ship that sustained damage during the Maritime Heritage Festival in St. Helens in July. Larsen is also co-owner of the Royaliste. “We are going to have a Royaliste encampment where we’re going to have the captain and some of the crew doing some rigging for the

ship so people can see what’s happening and maybe take part as well,� said Larsen. New to the festival this year is Nymbol Troupe’s Secret Garden and Gypsy Wagon, hailing from Whidby Island. “They’re puppeteers as well, but they’re more a little Dark Crystal, a little more on the dark side,� said Larsen. Tickets can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets or at the gate. One-day adult tickets are $10 or two-days for $18 for two days, youth tickets are $5 for one day or $8 for two days.

Additionally, four vehicles in the service bays were also destroyed by the fire, one of those being a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office patrol car. “It was a 2007 Ford Crown Victoria with all the equipment, radio/MDT, and other specialized enforcement equipment assigned to the deputy with the car,� said Sheriff Jeff Dickerson. “We are working with Les Schwab to identify an inventory of what was lost.� With Highway 30 closed to traffic in both directions, thousands of runners from the Hood to Coast relay race had to be rerouted. Officials from the relay diverted runners to Millard Road and later adjusted time to account for the change. All traffic lanes on Highway 30 were reopened at around 3 p.m. on Aug. 25.

The other Columbia County grant went to Portland and Western Railroad, which was awarded $427,000 for a siding extension project in Rainier.

To date, the program has funded more than 100 projects around the state. For this year’s funding, 65 applications were received, requesting more than $77 million in funding. The applications were then evaluated by modal and regional committees before going to the final review committee. The 2011 Oregon Legisla-

ture approved $40 million in lottery-backed bonds for the ConnectOregon IV program as part of HB 5036. Building on the success of the first three authorizations in 2005, 2007 and 2009 ConnectOregon IV will continue to improve the connections between the highway system and other modes of transportation. ConnectOregon funds will be distributed to air, marine, rail, transit and other multimodal projects statewide. No less than 10 percent of ConnectOregon IV funds must be distributed to each of the five regions of the state, provided that there are qualified projects in the region.

MEDICAID: benefits and access to doctors won’t change

From PAGE A1

“If you look at the population on Medicaid, 20-percent of the people incur 80-percent of the cost,� Curran said. That additional cost is often a result of preventable visits to urgent care or the emergency room by people with chronic health problems, Curran said. “If we can better provide those services at an earlier time, we can achieve that triple aim,� Curran said. Columbia Pacific CCO is a partnership between Greater Oregon Behavioral Health Inc. (GOHBI) and CareOregon, which is one of the current Medicare and Medicaid plans available to Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook county residents. Initially, the CCO will

combine health and mental services under one insurance plan. By 2014, it will also incorporate dental services. "By integrating medical care, behavioral health and eventually dental care, CCOs will meet the needs of the whole person, rather than treating mind separately from body and separating primary health needs from specialty and hospital care," said GOHBI CEO Kevin Campbell. Most plan members shouldn’t notice any change in service since the benefits and access to doctors won’t change. “The day-to-day will remain undisrupted‌ I think it’s fair to say that a lot of work will be happening behind the scene,â€? Curran said. However, Curran anticipates that the CCO will assign

an outreach worker to people with episodic (pregnancy) or chronic (diabetes) health issues to help them manage health issues and identify the best use of insurance funds. “If you have a more coordinated effort‌ if you can provide preventative care to this person‌ the cost differential is tremendous,â€? said Jeanie Lunsford, communications manager for CareOregon. "CCOs give communities an unprecedented opportunity to have ownership in the transformation of health care," Campbell said. "With formation of the Columbia Pacific CCO, we have achieved our goal of making the CCO local enough to be

relevant while still large enough to maintain solvency so we can continue to provide excellent health care services into the future." Residents in the Columbia Pacific CCO service area with current Medicaid plans will automatically be rolled over into the CCO plan. People with both Medicare and Medicaid coverage (dual-eligiblility) may chose to join the CCO or opt out, Curran said. For more information about Columbia Pacific CCO, contact Patrick Curran at or (503) 416-1421, or contact Kevin Campbell at or (541) 298-2101.

CASTROPHONY (F) - Castrophony is a very nice girl but is a little shy. Castrophony was brought to the shelter with Tsetsuiga because their owner lost her home and wasn't able to keep them. According to the owner Castrophony is a very loving and sweet girl that gets along well with other cats. However, we have found that Castrophony doesn't really like other cats and therefore recommend that she is the only cat in the household. NEWS STAFF

TIMBER: demand from China has been dropping

From PAGE A1

huge or anything, due to our deferral of harvest activities during the poor demand years,â&#x20AC;? said Miller. Although timber harvests for neighboring Clatsop County had remained positive in 2008 with an increase of 23 percent and 417,338 board feet harvested, those numbers fell sharply in 2009 with a decline of nearly 32 percent to just 284,000 board feet. In 2011, timber harvests were up by just 1.1 percent with 285,000 board feet. Not every company has seen an increase in production though. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us there are no ups and downs,â&#x20AC;? said Ed Hendrix, operations manager for Longview Timber, which operates out of Washington and northwest Oregon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have

three contractors in Deer Island and they are always harvesting. They just harvest different stands depending on demand.â&#x20AC;? Hendrix said that demand has shifted over the past few years from high-quality timber used in Japanese home building to low grade wood used in Chinese and domestic markets. Many timber exporters in Columbia County are still recovering from the sharp declines seen over the past decade. While countywide timber harvests have continued to climb since 2008, those numbers are still quite a bit lower than 2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harvest of nearly 229,000 board feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you really saw in 2007 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that big hit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that was all housing market related. When housing collapsed, or

the demand for lumber to build houses really followed,â&#x20AC;? said Teevin Brothers General Manager Eric Oien. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only seen in the last 12-18 months seen a return, but housing hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been anywhere to anywhere near those levels but there has been an increased production of lumber.â&#x20AC;? Like others, Teevin Brothers relies on exports to Asian markets to offset decreases to domestic markets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;China has created a huge demand for logs out of Oregon and Washington. Exportable timber has seen a huge boom in the last two or three years,â&#x20AC;? said Oien. Unfortunately, demand from China does seem to have been falling off over the past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly cooled off. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dropped a lot from where

it was last year but in the last 12 months weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a pretty sustainable level of activity; very consistent but not nearly as frenzied as it was in spring of 2011,â&#x20AC;? Oien said. Approximately 49 percent, or 30.2 million acres, of Oregon is forested. Federal forestlands account for 60 percent of these forestlands, industrial forestlands for 19 percent, family forestland owners own 15 percent, state-owned forests comprise 3 percent, and all other forestland owners (counties, Tribal, etc.), 3 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While log exports remain strong, they have begun to taper off,â&#x20AC;? said Kaetzel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I expect that lumber exports, along with increased domestic demand, will continue to drive timber harvests in Oregon.â&#x20AC;?

Ray paddles his way to world bronze BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle


om Ray’s white pickup often has an outrigger boat riding on top of it as he pulls through town. All during the year he’s practicing, whether near his home in Columbia City, in Portland or up near Seattle. All of that training paid off on Aug. 12, when the SHHS volleyball coach and his senior masters 12-man team won a bronze medal at the 15th annual Outrigger World Sprint Championships in Calgary, Canada. The bronze medal was presented to Ray and company on the second day of the five-day competition, which ran Aug. 11-15. Ray and his team – two others from the Portland area and nine

from Seattle – took third in the 500-meter race, finishing in just over two minutes. To onlookers, the V12 race – as the 12-person race is known – may look odd. A standard outrigger seats six people. For the V12 race, two boats are connected about four feet from one another by two 4x4s. “A couple times we hit paddles, but usually we were opposite (strokes of each other),” said Ray, a teacher at Lewis and Clark Elementary School. “It’s hard to get 12 people doing the same thing. To be third, it was pretty exciting.” The third-place finish came after three other bids at the World Championships left Ray and his teammates short of the finals. Ray had competed in Sacramento, Calif., in 2008, Lake Karapiro, New Zealand, in 2006, and in Hilo, Hawaii, in 2004. But never before had one of Ray’s teams reached the

finals, let alone win a medal. In New Zealand, his team was one spot away from reaching the seven-team finals. This year, in addition to the bronze medal, Ray’s senior masters V6 1,000-meter team reached the finals and finished seventh. The senior masters division is for paddlers ages 50 and over. The third-place finish is all the more impressive considering 1,281 paddlers formed 1,212 different teams at this event. There were 18 “countries,” represented, although places like Hawaii and Hong Kong compete as their own countries. Ray also steered a masters team (ages 40 and older) to a ninth-place finish in the V6 500 meters. The 500-meter course, Ray said, is basically a sprint. It’s a straight course. The teams must stay in their 15-meter wide lane the whole way.

The 1,000-meter race takes place on a 250-meter course. That means the teams have to turn three different times, staying within a 30-meter lane. “The turns are interesting. Everybody’s got a job on the boat when you get to a turn,” Ray said. “The person calling is the steers person, which was me. I was in charge of the boat.” In the smaller boats, Ray had the responsibility of making sure everyone was on the same page. In the V12 boat, he was second in command. While it was less of a burden, it was still a lot of work. “We just paddled as hard as we could,” Ray said about the V12 race. The bronze medal Ray and company earned in Calgary also qualified the team for the 2014 World Championships in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

St. Helens moves quickly in scrimmage WHO’S NEXT? CLEVELAND WARRIORS St. Helens opens the season at home at 7 p.m. on Aug. 31 against the Cleveland Warriors. The Warriors finished 2011 ranked 36th out of 37 5A teams in the OSAA power rankings. Cleveland was 2-7, 2-3 in the PIL, good for fourth out of six teams in the league. Cleveland does return starting quarterback Ryan Senior, a senior this year. St. Helens and Cleveland last met in the 2010 play-in round. The Lions won that game, 34-0.

ST. HELENS — A new quarterback helped introduce a new wrinkle into the St. Helens High School football team’s offensive attack during the Lions’ intrasquad scrimmage on Aug. 25. Junior Gage Bumgardner stepped under center as St. Helens showed a no-huddle approach. Bumgardner replaces Dallas Thompson, who was expected to be the team’s starter this season before moving to Idaho. “Gage is doing a tremendous job. He was a wide receiver who we needed to put (at quarterback) and he’s really taken to it,” said head coach John England. The converted receiver showed little trouble calling plays on the fly, which offensive coordinator Kyle Wroblewski said the team will do roughly 90 percent of the time during the season – although England laughingly disagreed. “Ninety percent? I don’t know where he got that. I think we’re at about 100 percent. I don’t think we’ve huddled yet,” England said. The team installed the nohuddle approach during spring practices, honed it during

team camp in Gold Beach and has been working on it throughout the first week of official practices. “It’s been good, not too many screw-ups on formations,” England said.

Which formation the team was in didn’t seem to matter on Aug. 25 as long as the Lions got the ball into the hands of junior running back Tanner Long. Long had two very long touchdown runs. In

doing so, he showed the ability to fill the void left by Dumitri Malnasi, a first-team All-NWOC running back as a senior in 2011. “I think Tanner Long showed he’s got some game-

breaking abilities. He looked good running the ball,” England said. Opening holes for Long were the only two returning seniors on the roster, Joey Beggio and Andrew Gray.

“Joey Beggio and Andrew Gray on the offensive line did a nice job,” England said. Gray was the team’s leader on the defensive side of the ball as well. He delivered several pad-popping hits from his linebacker position. This week the Lions prep for their season opener, Aug. 31 at home against the Cleveland Warriors.

U12 Hot Shots are 2nd, twice St. Helens Youth Soccer Association’s Hot Shots U12 girls soccer team finished second in two different tournaments recently. The Hot Shots took second in the Cowlitz Kickoff Classic in Longview Aug. 8-10, then followed that with another runner-up finish at the Mt. Hood Challenge Aug. 17-19. During the Mt. Hood Chal-

lenge, the team opened with a 1-0 win over WUSC Celtic Navy on Aug. 17. On Aug. 18, Hot Shots lost a 3-1 contest to the Eastside Timbers. The St. Helens team then won two straight, a 2-1 affair over the NSC Blue Angels and a 3-0 win over Azul FC Stampede. The match against NSC Blue Angels was especially

tight, needing penalty kicks to decide the outcome. In the final game on Aug. 19, Hot Shots dropped a close 2-1 contest to FCSC Nemesis Real Yellow. “I am very excited about my girls’ team this year and look forward to the upcoming fall soccer season,” said coach Angela Nichols. – Kyle Boggs

SCAPPOOSE — Early in any season, it’s usually the defense that looks better than the offense. Not so for the 2012 Scappoose High School football team. The Indians loaded up the scoreboard during a 35-35 tie in the team’s intrasquad scrimmage on Aug. 25. “Typically, early on the defense is ahead of the offense. In the past those games have been pretty low scoring,” said Scappoose coach Sean McNabb. The old ways were ushered out immediately as the evenly matched black and white teams both scored on their first plays from scrimmage. Junior Carson Davison and senior Paul Revis busted open big plays. “Those two guys have the ability to score when the ball is in their hands,” McNabb said. A couple minutes into the first quarter, the score was tied 14-14 after a flurry of touchdowns. Another offensive standout was senior running back Zach Fry. Fry, the Cowapa League cross country champion in 2010 and 2011, opted

for football this season and gives the Indians another weapon in the backfield. “Zach Fry came in, scored a touchdown. He ran the ball hard. By watching him, it just shows you you’ve got another back you can feel comfortable and confident putting in the game,” McNabb said. Defensively McNabb said senior safety Michael

Lohman was the standout of the game. “He was all over the place, made a lot of tackles,” McNabb said. The Indians entered the scrimmage with a battle for the starting quarterback position between juniors Lionel Sandoval and Taylor Loss. McNSee INDIANS, Page A13

Depending on the size and layout of the patch, you can either hand-clip the foliage or, if you can set a lawnmower high enough to avoid damaging the crown, mow and bag the leaves. This removes diseased leaves and gives mites less to live on. June-bearing strawberries should be fertilized with about two pounds of a 10-20-20 or its organic equivalent per 100 square feet of bed.

abb said both of them played well during the scrimmage, leaving the competition still close. He said the starting position won’t be decided until later this week. Overall the coach was encouraged by the Saturday morning showing. “I really liked the energy and enthusiasm. I thought that was the highlight.

had a lot of leaves skeletonized by both the larva and adult of this insect. The small, black, worm-like larva rained down on homes, gardens, and landscapes. The hot weather of several weeks ago seemed to knock a lot of the larva off the tree. Since they don’t eat much but alders, they seemed a bit disorientated to be on the ground. But perhaps they were just getting ready to pupate in the soil beneath the leaf litter. There they stay until they emerge as small, metallic black with blue tinges adult beetles about 10 days later. The adults then fly back up into the alders and eat some more. Then they over winter and next spring emerge to eat, mate, and lay eggs on the leaf undersides to restart the cycle. As with the tent caterpillar, no control is needed. Alders will recover. Numbers of alder flea beetles are higher this year than they have been for many years. That won’t last, either.

Points leaders win 5 races BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — Five Columbia County Racing Association drivers extended their points lead Aug. 25 on a dusty evening at River City Speedway. Division leaders Justin McMullen, Joel Beehler, Ryan Martinez, Dave Walters and Jonathan West all earned main event victories in their respective classifications. McMullen’s win came in the street stock division. He entered the evening with a slim lead over Jeremy Wetherbee. Wetherbee had the fastest lap time of the evening and won the trophy dash but finished 12th in the main event. Beehler’s win came in the 4-cylinder division, where he beat out rookie James Walker for the victory. Those two are 1-2 in the points standings with Beehler having a decided advantage. Martinez came away with wins in his heat and the main event of the dwarf division to create even more separation atop the standings. Entering the Saturday evening race, Martinez held a lead of nearly 150 points — the largest in any division. With his Aug. 25 victory, that lead increases even more. Walters edged out Greg Lane for the Pacific minisprints main event victory.

Dave Walters, in the No. 67 car, won the main event in the Pacific mini-sprints at the Aug. 25 CCRA races at River City Speedway.

Lane looked good all night, winning the preliminary heat, clocking the fastest lap time and winning the trophy dash. But division leader Walters had what it took in the main event to notch the victory. West took first place in the four-car tracer division main event. He beat out Olivia McDaniel, Bryce Tenney and Darrin Crape. In the other three divisions, the points races be-

came a bit more interesting. Clark Tenney closed the gap on division leader Don Jenner in the modified standings. Tenney, who entered the evening in third place, picked up the main event win. Jenner finished eighth. Clint Petty, second in the standings, finished seventh. Clyde White, who entered the race second in the sportsman division standings, won the trophy dash, his heat and the main event.

In the women’s division, Jenae Frelich took home first-place main event honors. Also racing on Aug. 25 was the late models and 4cylinder late model division. This division does not count toward the standings. Bob Westcott won the main event and the trophy dash for 4cylinders. Next up on the CCRA schedule is a two-day race Sept. 1-2.
