Body of St. Helens man found in dumpster BY SHARI PHIEL

ST. HELENS — The body of a St. Helens man was discovered inside a dumpster behind the Walgreens pharmacy in St. Helens on Monday morning. Just after 8 a.m. on Jan. 13, officers from the St. Helens Police Department were called to 175 S. Columbia River Hwy., after an em-

ployee at Walgreens found the body. Officers arrived to discover the body of a Ryan Donald Neveau, 26, of St. Helens. Police Chief Terry Moss said it appeared Neveau had somehow become trapped under the steel lid of the dumpster and suffocated. “An employee went out this morning because there was a delivery and found him,” said Moss. “This dumpster was not your typical Hudson Garbage one

with a thin, plastic lid. This had a very heavy steel lid. He got trapped in between that lid and the dumpster.” Although officials are not suspicious about the manner in which Neveau died, there are questions still to be answered about how Neveau came to be in the dumpster, which is housed behind a locked gate. “If he slipped and fell and the lid crashed down on him, we don’t know. We know how he died but we’d like

to know what he was doing there. We have officers out now talking to people. We’re just trying to figure out what he was doing last night just to see if we can figure out why he was there. There’s all kinds of speculation about what it could be.” Even though officials don’t know why Neveau was at the dumpster’s location, they are confident about the manner of his death. “For now we’re satisfied with the investigation as far

as how he died but we’ll be looking at why he was there. There was nothing suspicious about his death. The way he was found, the marks on his body, there was nothing to suggest it was anything other than the lid crashing on top of him,” Moss said. Officials also said there was no indication that alcohol or any other substances played a part in Neveau’s death. “Part of any death inves-

tigation like this, we take samples and they’ll go to the laboratory for analysis. We won’t know the results for probably weeks,” said Moss. “But there was nothing obvious in that regard.” Neveau was at one time co-owner of Staypuff Organics, a marijuana dispensary based in Columbia County. The dispensary closed in 2011 after being in operation for three months. He leaves behind a daughter.

This little piggie: rescue continues tradition of caring BY SHARI PHIEL

ST. HELENS — For the past 20 years, Michelle Fudge has been creating a somewhat unusual sanctuary. Along with dogs, cats and the occasional flock of geese, Fudge also creates a safe haven for potbelly pigs, and even some fullsized farm pigs. Like so often happens, it started with one pig back in North Carolina – where she lived with her husband and children. She developed a special bond with that first pig. Soon she had rescued more than 20 of them. Potbelly pigs are a breed of domestic pigs that originated in Vietnam. They are much smaller than their farm cousins, but aren’t nearly as small as many people think. They typically grow to the size of a medium or largebreed dog, but because of their dense bodies can weigh anywhere between 20 and 300 pounds. Potbellies grew in popularity during the 1990s after celebrities like George Clooney started touting them as pets. But the cute little piglets soon grew, often far larger than their owners were prepared for and many where abandoned. When Fudge and her family decided to move to Oregon, she told her

Potbelly Pig Rescue was born. “We had a ton more come. People brought some over that were ‘fat’ but were actually pregnant,” she laughingly added. Eventually, Fudge found herself with more than 100

pigs to care for. That number has dwindled down to just over 50. There’s no doubt it’s hard work caring for that many animals, but it’s clear that Fudge, who works full time as a chemist, is committed to taking care of them. In fact,

pigs are available for adoption (there’s no adoption fee) and for anyone wanting to adopt, the process is fairly easy. “We go and look at the home, of course. But if you ­­­­ See PIGS, Page A4

Navigating the economic development playing field When it comes to economic development in Columbia County, there’s no shortage of agencies, organizations, groups and nonprofits dedicated to that task. There’s also no shortage of acronyms to remember them by (enough to give a bowl of alphabet soup a run for its money). From CCET to Col-Pac, from SHEDCO to MESO, if you’re a business owner – or a potential business owner – it can be difficult to know where to turn.

In addition to each of these groups, many of the individual cities in Columbia County are focused on economic development. To better understand what each organization does, let’s look at some of the key players:

CCET – Columbia County Economic Team This county associated entity is led by its executive director, Chuck Daughtry, who came to Columbia County from the Port of Cascade Locks last July

following the departure of previous director David Stocker. AmeriCorps worker Drew Barbier joined CCET in September. He will remain until July 2014. CCET has four clearly defined goals: “to expand, retain and recruit businesses and industries”; to increase the per capita income and diversify the economy; coordinate delivery of professional economic development services; and to provide leadership. Unlike some of the other

groups and agencies, CCET zone in Vernonia to allow looks at the county as whole. a company already located “We’re a nonprofit there to grow. 501(c)6 set up to facilitate “I see opportunities eveconomic development erywhere.

Sauvie Island natural gas leak prompts bridge closure

SAUVIE ISLAND — Residents near the Williams Northwest Pipeline transfer station were evacuated and the bridge to the island closed after a gas leak was discovered early Friday morning. The transfer station, at 14430 N.W. Gillihan Road, supplies natural gas to utilities along the Interstate-5 corridor and is

about ½ mile from the bridge. Gas crews and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office responded to the leak, which was reported just before 6 a.m. on Jan. 10. According to officials from Portland Fire and Rescue, the leak was caused by an over-pressurization on the line, causing a faulty

release valve on the island to begin discharging gas. Noise from the gas discharge woke nearby residents from up to a quarter of a mile away. Several reported hearing noises similar to a jet engine taking off. Island residents in the immediate area were evacuated to the school parking lot or

boat ramp parking lot while residents on N.W. Larson Road on the other side of the channel were evacuated to Highway 30. Although the bridge was reopened about an hour later and residents were allowed to return to their homes, Sauvie Island Academy remained closed for the day.

Northwest Natural, which serves Sauvie Island, also sent crews to the island to double check the company’s equipment even though there was no indication of any issues. The pipeline, according to Williams, runs east through Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and New Mexico.

Fatal crash on Lewis and Clark Bridge off-ramp Oregon State Police is continuing its investigation of a late Friday night single-vehicle fatal traffic crash that occurred on the eastbound off-ramp from Highway 30 to the Lewis and Clark Bridge in Rainier. The crash resulted in the death of a Longview, Wash.,

man. Just before 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 10, Rainier Police and OSP responded to the scene of the fatal traffic crash on the eastbound Lewis and Clark Bridge off-ramp near milepost 49. According to investigators, a 2002 Chevrolet S10

pickup driven by Mark Ross Vanzanyen, 41, from Longview, was traveling eastbound and began to take the off-ramp at a high rate of speed for the approaching sharp left curve. The pickup continued straight off the roadway, impacted a rock face em-

bankment and rolled onto its top. Vanzanten was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not using safety restraints. OSP troopers from the St. Helens and Astoria offices responded to the scene. Trooper Billy Bush is

the lead investigator. OSP was assisted at the scene by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, Rainier Police Department, and Rainier Fire Department. Cowlitz County and the Washington Sheriff’s Office assisted with next of kin notifications.

Get a flu shot now

It’s not too late to get a flu shot, according to Anne Parrott of Columbia County Public Health. While the flu season started early this year, Parrott said a shot now can take effect in a couple of weeks, protecting you for the rest of the season. Each year, scientists determine which flu strains are likely to cause the most disease in the coming season. This year’s trivalent seasonal flu shot protects against H1N1, H3N2 and influenza B/Massachusetts. A new quadrivalent vaccine also protects against B/Brisbane. The H1N1strain, which was responsible for the 2009 pandemic, has seen resurgence this year. The same group, children and young adults who were most affected then are at risk now, according to Parrott. At least one death at a Salem hospital this year has been attributed to influenza. As of Jan. 1, 179 people in the Portland metro area have been hospitalized for the flu. Flu shots are available from your health care provider, Public Health and many local pharmacies.

PUD to host Jan. 30 blood drive

Columbia River People’s Utility District is hosting an American Red Cross blood drive on Thursday, Jan. 30 from 1–5 p.m. According to the Red Cross, 280 blood drives have been cancelled in 25 states across the nation due to the recent bitterly cold weather, resulting in almost 8,400 uncollected blood and platelet donations. PUD Blood Drive Coordinator Sherry Welter said she hopes to collect at least 30 units of blood. “The need for blood donors right now is really high” said Welter. “We’re hoping for a great turnout at our blood drive so that we can help meet that need.” To schedule an appointment for the PUD blood drive, call 1-800-RED CROSS, or go online to

New Year’s Eve DUII crackdown numbers ST. HELENS — In response to a crackdown on impaired drivers over the New Year’s Eve Holiday, the St. Helens Police Department made several traffic stops that led to one person being arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants. Over a six-hour period those additional stops resulted in citations for Driving Uninsured, Driving While Suspended, two citations for Failure to Use a Seatbelt and one for Endangering a Child Passenger. During this High Visibility Enforcement campaign, officers from the St. Helens Police Department joined officers across Columbia County in this nationwide effort to get more impaired drivers off the street. “An enhanced law enforcement presence is just one way to keep impaired drivers off the road,” said St. Helens Police Chief Terry Moss. Suggesting that DUII prevention should be a community effort Chief Moss made a plea for public involvement. “Be a responsible when consuming alcohol, use a designated driver, and immediately call the police when you suspect a drunk driver. It could save a life,” Moss said.

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is asking for public comment on a proposed oil spill contingency plan for Columbia Pacific Bio-refinery. The Clatskanie facility transfers Bakken crude oil from rail cars onto barges at Port Westward. Columbia Pacific Biorefinery submitted the plan for approval by the DEQ. The plan outlines how the company will prepare to deal with a spill, what the company must provide in terms of emergency response resources and how the company will conduct clean-up operations along with other agencies. DEQ is required by state law to review spill response plans from shipping companies, oil facilities and other entities. DEQ regulates the transfer of oil from the facility to the barges only. The proposed plan is available in hard copy only. View the proposed plan in person at DEQ headquarters in Portland. For an appointment call Scott A. Smith at 503-229-5370. Public comments must be received by DEQ by Monday, Feb. 10, 2014. Comments can be mailed to Scott A. Smith 811 S.W. Sixth Ave. Portland, OR 97201 or emailed to smith.scott@deq.

ECONOMICS: promoting Columbia County takes teamwork From PAGE A1

when it comes to how the county will grow. “People maybe differ a bit about the impacts of economic development. But everyone really wants to see jobs, they want to see growth – there are very few that don’t,” he adds. CCET bills itself as a onestop shop for business services. The agency is helmed by 25 board members (three of those as ex-officio) who represent city government, local industry, the Port of St. Helens and county government. For more about CCET, visit the website at SHEDCO – St. Helens Economic Development Corporation This group was formed when a “group of likeminded volunteers” decided they wanted to find a way to revitalize St. Helens, espe-

cially focusing on areas like Olde Towne and the Houlton district near Highway 30 and Columbia Boulevard. Their efforts are visible all over the city. From storefront art displays, to planting flowers in flower boxes along some main thoroughfares to developing a thriving Mainstreet program, these volunteers definitely keep busy. Some of the group’s projects have included assisting with the Columbia County Courthouse clock renovation, co-sponsoring the 2013 Fourth of July festivities and the St. Helens Sculpture Scroll, which aims to install sculptures along Columbia Boulevard. This project is in the very early stages. The group meets monthly and encourages anyone interested in St. Helens’ economy to attend. Unlike other agencies, SHEDCO is a non-profit without any taxing authority. Instead, it relies on private and corporate donations,

grants, endowments and fundraising events. SHEDCO has eight voting board members who represent local businesses and citizens, as well as three nonvoting board members. The non-voting members function as city council liaison, staff liasion and Mainstreet program coordinator.

Col-Pac: Columbia-Pacific Economic Development District In contrast to other agencies in Columbia County, Col-Pac isn’t focused on economic development strictly for Columbia County. This private non-profit covers all of Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook counties, as well as parts of Washington County. Governed by a 17-member volunteer board, Col-Pac’s mission is to promote and sustain healthy communities in the district through retention, diversification and expansion of the economic base.

“The goal is healthy and thriving communities. A strong and diversified economic base that provides family-wage jobs is a significant component and contributor to healthy communities,” says the organization. The organization also provides a business development loan program designed to serve as flexible gap financing for the expansion of existing businesses, the startup of new businesses as well as for creating new (or even saving) jobs. Col-Pac meets jointly every other month with the Northwest Oregon Economic Alliance. Meetings are rotated through each of the four counties. For more information, go to Port of St. Helens Although not a countywide agency, development on port-owned properties in Clatskanie, St. Helens, Scappoose and Columbia City

nah and Georgia – take care of all of the animals. From treating injuries like an abscess received during a fight to giving a newborn piglet mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, the family does it all. Like so many private animal rescues, finding funding can be difficult. Most of the expenses are paid by Fudge directly but she is now working on getting a 501(c)3 designation so that anyone wanting to make a tax-free donation can do so. In the meantime, items such as sleeping bags, hay and feed are always appreciated – as are volunteers at the rescue.

ment agencies is an important part of finding new tenants. “We definitely work closely with CCET, we work very closely with Col-Pac, and we work very closely with Business Oregon in identifying and attracting their business retention and recruitment side of the house,” he said. The port is governed by a five-member board of commissioners. Commissioners are elected by voters to four-year terms. The commission meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month.

definitely has an impact on the residents of the county. And each of its properties has a different focus. “Port Westward is focused as an energy cluster. It could be bio-fuel, it could be solar, it could be ethanol, petroleum or coal – things that would be energy related. It’s just like how the [Scappoose] Airport is our aviation cluster but that doesn’t mean just flying planes in and out. There’s manufacturing and aviation too,” said Executive Director Pat Trapp. Promoting port facilities comes from working with state agencies like Business Oregon, as well as from advertising and attending industry events. Unlike some of the local nonprofits, some funding for the port comes through tax dollars collected by the county. In 2013, the port received about $316,000 in tax revenues.

Letters Protect the people There is a railroad bridge between Highway 30 and Milton Way in St. Helens which raises potential for oil trains to literally devastate half the of St. Helens area. The bridge was built sometime between 1914 and 1930. Up until about four years ago, the bracing at the center of the bridge, which consisted of columns and X-bracing, is gone and has never been replaced. This definitely has to do with the stability of the railroad bridge. The Port of St. Helens is aware of this problem as is the City of St. Helens, county commissioners, Portland and Western Railroad and now Sen. Wyden’s office (which is very concerned). And yet the port has encouraged the increase of crude oil trains to Port Westward. The city has done nothing to interfere with this decision. The commissioners are hiding behind their corporate political donors and passing the buck. Who is leading and protecting the people of Columbia County? This railroad bridge is in the middle of town in St. Helens. Homes, businesses, Highway 30 and an ammunition business all are within an explosion zone if a crude oil train derailment occurs at this location. Please contact your commissioners, your city councilpersons, your port commissioners and your federal senators to stop these trains until a thorough investigation has been completed. We had no prior notice of these trains in the beginning and we are just now finding out how volatile they can be. Let your voices be heard. Nancy Whitney, St. Helens Sooner, not later Like me, have you broken any of your resolutions yet? Good intentions without a solid plan to execute really don’t have a chance. That is why I support our local United Way of Columbia County. Our local United Way has a solid history of executing their plans and leveraging their donations to help the most people. They don’t have the numerous high-rise corporations lining up Highway 30 to support them. They have us, our businesses and community. With their new $5/ month ($60/year) plan, I can help more people than by donating directly to a single charity. Having the guaranteed tax deduction doesn’t hurt either. Why not? For me, it’s better than adopting a photo or texting to a foreign



country. At least, I can help my own community today, who needs it just as much as the others. Direct results from a well executed plan. It’s not that I’m against helping big organizations. Lately though, my thoughts have been more urgent and local. Maybe it’s seeing more teenagers couch surfing, or a former sassy neighbor destroyed financially and visiting a soup kitchen. People still care, but I think are overwhelmed. Whatever the reason, why is it easier to donate thousands of miles away and not feel as good about helping the people in our own towns and county siblings? Unless a miracle occurs and we become sexy to support, we’re not going to have the music stars and paparazzi descend upon Columbia County and sing “We are the one, we are the children” – no, we have to make our own miracle and each and every one of us need to contribute a drop or two to fill our own bucket. For myself, I volunteer and donate online, but I used to donate through my employer (what I didn’t realize though is that if the employer is out-of-county, my donations didn’t come back to my neighborhood unless I specified that they come to United Way of Columbia County. So please continue to donate through your employer, but make certain they know to send it to United Way of Columbia County.) I once read that in order to help others, you need to take care of yourself first. Our county needs our help, sooner not later. Anita Bolin Rainier Plain and simple To Jon Ellis, finance director, and all the members of St. Helens City Council: I am responding to your letter dated Dec. 31, 2013 (I.E. to your attack on senior citizens discount on their water and sewer bills proposal). This is just not right. I go into some restaurants that have a senior discount of up to 10 percent. Under your proposal, I will not qualify for the discount simply because I make too much money. Also, under your proposal I do not qualify for my national Golden Age Passport for admittance to all federal parks. Why? Because the City of St. Helens maintains I make too much money. I am a senior citizen who has faithfully paid my taxes longer than you have. I worked long and hard for what I have,

saved a little money to put a down payment on a rental many years ago and now because of that extra income from the rental, I won’t get a discount on my water and sewer bill. And what about social security? Do you think I should not get my full amount I quality for? Because I make too much money from the rental? There are other ways for the city of St. Helens to generate revenue without attacking its senior citizens. You politicians need to start using “common sense” in governing this city without this type of elementary thinking. This is discrimination plain and simple. For example take a look at the website for Cedar Falls, Iowa, and see how they redesigned their downtown main street to generate public interest and business. It is very successful. Federal and possibly state grants are most likely available to upgrade Olde Towne St. Helens. Please do not pass this proposed utility assistance program change. Richard Sorenson, St. Helens Wonder why The following letter was printed over four years ago, but I believe that its poignant truths are even more fitting today. If we are wondering, (and we should be) why our civilization is disintegrating, we have only to read the words of Colin Deal, from his Newsletter, “End Time News” in Rutherford College, N.C: “In this land; we have ridiculed the absolute truth of God’s word and called it ‘pluralism.’ We have worshipped other gods and called it ‘multiculturalism.’ We have endorsed perversion and called it ‘alternative lifestyle.’ We have rewarded laziness and called it ‘welfare.’ We have frowned on the right to discipline our children, and called it ‘children’s rights.’ We have sanctioned political bribery, and called it ‘lobbying.’ We have drugged our schoolchildren, and called it ‘psychology.’ We have committed treason by passing military secrets and millions of jobs to godless nations, and called it ‘free trade.’ We have worshipped the creature more than the creator, and called it ‘animal rights.’ We have killed our unborn children, and called it ‘pro-choice.’ We have abused power, and called it ‘politics.’ We have ridiculed those who speak out against sin, and called it ‘hate speech.’ We have appeased enemies who

seek our destruction, and called it ‘anti-discrimination.’ We have banned prayer from the public schools, and called it, ‘separation of church and state.’ We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography, and called it ‘freedom of expression.’ We have banned Bibles in our schools, but distributed condoms, and called it ‘Planned Parenthood.’ We have ridiculed the timehonored values of our forefathers, with revisionist history, and called it ‘politically correct.’” Do we really think that we can insult the creator of this universe – and live? Dean Nichols, Scappoose Pet friendly During November and December of 2013 United Way of Columbia County was able to partner with Good360 and PetSmart Charities via two PetSmart stores in the Vancouver Area. For a promotion they were offering which was encouraging customers to donate a Chance (Cat) and/or Lucky (Dog) plush animal to be given to their partner charity (United Way of Columbia County). On Jan. 2, we received a call from our partner stores that they had several boxes of donated Chance and Lucky Plush toys for us to pick up. Our volunteer had a car full of boxes and huge plastic bags stuffed with dogs and cats. We received a

total of 160 plush toys. The estimated value of the donations is $955. We shared these cute and cuddly plush animals with county ambulance service providers, police, CASA, and Amani Center to give to children who may be in a crisis situation and could use a cuddly friend. What a wonderful gift the customers of PetSmart and PetSmart Charities have given us to share with our community. If you happen to shop at the PetSmart store on 78th Street or the one on S.E. 192nd in Vancouver please say thank you to the staff members who helped promote this event and have given us the opportunity to make some child’s day a bit brighter. Kathye Beck, Executive Director United Way of Columbia County Precious memories My parents, the Rev. Frost Hatch, 88, and Theresa Hatch, have been residents of St. Helens since 1974. Later this month they are moving to Highland, Ill., to be near their daughter, Wilda Hatch Poehler. They and their daughters want to thank their many friends for many precious memories and warm friendships. They arrived in St. Helens in 1974 as Associate Pastor of Sunset Park Church. They have worshiped and volunteered there in retirement. Their last Sunday at the

church will be on Jan. 19. My dad also pastored churches in Oregon, Washington and Montana. Mom headed the Christian education department and adult and children’s Sunday school in St. Helens while often working in business full time. She will be missed at the Tuesday ladies Bible study she leads at Sunset Park Church. The study will continue with another teacher. Dad is an accomplished woodworker with an impressive wood shop. He has done carpentry around the county and in Portland. He is also a car nut and personally looks after his own cars. Mother worked at Columbia District Hospital and for the late Dr. Dory Walrod and for a podiatrist in Beaverton. In retirement she entered many local and Portland craft shows and showed Frost’s woodworking art pieces. She enjoys her computer classes at the St. Helens Public Library.

Have coffee with a cop at Burgerville Weekly Meetings Come by Burgerville on Columbia River Highway in St. Helens Friday, Jan.17 between 8–9 a.m. and enjoy a free cup of coffee thanks to the St. Helens Police Department. Officers from SHPD will be on hand for the “Coffee with a Cop” program, which provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions, learn more about the department and drink coffee with a police officer. The event is being co-sponsored by KOHI radio, which will broadcast from Burgerville at the same time. Typically, members of the public come into contact with a police during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for building relationships within the community as some people may may not be comfortable approaching a police officer on duty. Coffee with a Cop will help break down those barriers and allow for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. “We want the community to feel comfortable asking questions, or simply getting to know our officers,” said St. Helens Police Chief Terry Moss. “Good conversation and a cup of coffee is a great way to do that.”

Row covers available again The local interest in row covers continues to grow. Row covers are made from a gauzy fabric. We buy a sixfoot width roll of 1,000 feet long. We then cut the roll in lengths of 50 or 100 feet. Row covers are used in vegetable production on farms and home gardens. This year, we are buying a heavier weight cover – one ounce versus a half ounce, as in the past. It should be a lot more durable and more warming to our transplants and seedlings. Row covers increase temperatures around transplants and growing plants by 4-6 degrees during the day and 3-4 degrees at night. This is valuable heat in the spring and fall. Soils warm with the covers but don’t crust, so seed emergence is faster and more even. Seeds planted under row covers aren’t seen by crows. Covers can be left with

garden plots enough slack so that broccoli-sized plants can grow tall underneath them. You can also attach the cover to wire or plastic pipe hoops. Covers can keep insects like carrot rust flies and cabbage root maggots off your crops. However, slugs and weeds also prosper under covers so slug controls and persistent weeding is needed. Last year we could not get the covers, but two years ago we sold – in 50- or 100-foot pieces – about a mile of cover. Cost this year will be $20 for a 6-foot by 100-foot piece or $10 for a 50-foot piece. You can cut them down further to fit your gardening needs.

found along the US-Mexican border in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The fact that it hasn’t been found in Oregon or other parts of the country hasn’t prevented self-diagnoses or medical opinions that implicate the spider as the cause of wounds that fail to heal normally. In Oregon, we do have populations of black widows. They are quite common in Southern Oregon and quite uncommon in Columbia County. We also have hobo spiders, some-times called the aggressive house spider. This immigrant from Europe has been implicated in bite wounds that mimic, to a milder degree, those of the brown recluse spider. However, there is increasing evidence that the medical world is diagnosing hobo spider bites more commonly than they are likely to occur. In that case, there is a chance that a more serious underlying condition that caused the wound may be missed.

Spider bite facts and myths Spiders make many people uncomfortable. It isn’t much of a stretch to see spiders as more of a threat than they actually represent. The most common misconception is there are brown recluse spiders in Oregon.

Third straight Pac-Rim title for Tribe Scappoose has five individual champs on its way to the title; St. Helens has one winner, finishes in fifth place overall by kyle boggs

SEASIDE — With five individual champions leading the way, the Scappoose Indians ran away with the team title at the 2014 PacRim Tournament Jan. 10-11. It’s Scappoose’s third straight Pac-Rim title, this one coming in a field of 16 teams. The Indians finished well ahead of the second-place Estacada Rangers. Scappoose scored 209.5 points; the runner-up scored 158. St. Helens took fifth place with 133, led by freshman Myles Terry’s win at 152 pounds. Terry’s victory at 152 interrupted a stretch of dominance by the Indians in the

Gadbois had pins in the third, first and second rounds, respectively. Taking the 170-pound crown was junior Johnathan Tardif. Tardif pinned his first opponent in 35 seconds, then won the next three matches by decision. The scores of those matches were 9-2, 13-6 and 13-8. Senior Isaiah Goodrich earned first-place honors in Seaside for the second straight year. After his first opponent forfeited to him, Goodrich won a 17-2 technical fall, then an 11-1 major decision and picked up

a second-round fall in the 182-pound finals. Last year Goodrich won the 170-pound division. Junior Devin Ray also made it back-to-back PacRim wins. For the second straight year he came out on top of the 220-pound division. He had a bye in the first round, then won by firstround pin in each of the next two rounds. He pinned Astoria’s Josh Raichl 3:37 into the championship bout. Three other Tribe wrestlers finished in the top four of their weight class. Sophomore Braxton Sue won by fall twice and earned a 9-6 decision before falling 10-7 in the 106-pound finals. See rim, Page A14

Split week for Scappoose by kyle boggs

As the Scappoose Indians (5-6) near the end of their non-league portion of the schedule, they appear to be fitting the pieces of the puzzle that is their team together. The Tribe has shown flashes of brilliance on offense. Defensively, the Indians have shown they’ll hunker down when they need to in order to grind out victories. “We have three games this week before league starts, so we need to get everything clicking. We have done a lot of things well this preseason, but I don’t think we are anywhere near our potential,” said Scappoose coach Rahim Tufts. “Once everything comes together and everyone plays well on the same night, we are going to be tough to beat.” The Indians put themselves in a position to enter league with a record at or above .500 after dropping their first three games of the year. Scappoose split a pair of games last week, beating the Taft Tigers (5-5) 51-41 on Jan. 7, then falling on the road to the No. 9 Central Panthers (8-2) by a score of 52-42. What looked to be a winning formula for the Indians was on full display against the Tigers. It included attacking drives from senior Mitch Davis, relentless rebounding from junior Chase Johnson and hounding defensive pressure from junior Jake Ford off the bench. Along with several other timely contributions from other Tribe players, that was enough for the Indians to hang on for a home victory. Davis ended the game with a game-high 16 points. Johnson scored 13 points, but more importantly seemed to come down with just about every missed shot. He snatched 17 rebounds. As a team, the Indians had a large rebounding edge over the Tigers, as senior Tra-

There was a different sense of urgency for the Scappoose Indians (4-7) in the second half on Jan. 7. The Indians went into halftime with a five-point lead over the visiting Taft Tigers (4-7). After having a “little conversation” during the intermission, the Indians closed the game on a 32-2 tear. Taft didn’t muster a single point in the final quarter. “We are getting better at our team defense,” said Scappoose coach David Spirlin. The Indians came up with 13 steals in the game – nine in the second half. Lacey Updike had four of them, part of a big game for the senior. She finished with 17 points and nine rebounds. Senior Abby Kessi finished the game with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Updike scored 10 of the team’s 12 first-quarter points. After the game, Spirlin said he’d like to see his team start stronger collectively. “We get in our own way. We’ve got to come out of the locker room mentally and physically ready,” he said. “We just need to put together four quarters.”

If the Indians can put together entire games filled with the efficiency they played with in the second half of this game, they should be in good shape the rest of the season. The high-low entry pass looked particularly threatening. Senior Haley Wight had a team-high four assists threading bounce passes through the defense from her spot at the elbow down to the low post. Spirlin said getting the ball to the post players is a big part of his game plan, especially in games like these in which his team has a height advantage. While he said he was pleased with how things turned out against Taft, he still sees room to improve in that area. “We are looking inside. Now we just need to better recognize ‘OK, it’s there,’ or ‘No, I need to go somewhere else with the ball,’” Spirlin said. The road got tougher for the Tribe on Jan. 10, when they dropped a 61-41 decision to the No. 9 Central Panthers (9-1). Scappoose played Molalla (4-6) on Jan. 14. The Indians play at Estacada (4-6) at 7 p.m. on Jan. 17. – Kyle Boggs


St. Helens boys and girls rout Parkrose in dual meet by kyle boggs

ST. HELENS — The outnumbered Parkrose Broncos swim team never posed a threat to the St. Helens Lions on Jan. 9 during a dual meet at Eisenschmidt Pool. The SHHS boys beat Parkrose’s four-man team by a score of 108-51. From a numbers’ perspective, the Lions and Broncos squads were more evenly matched – St. Helens had 11 swimmers on hand vs. seven for Parkrose. Still the Lions easily outscored the opposition, winning 94-60. St. Helens took the two wins despite having an agitated practice schedule over the prior few weeks. Holidays, snow days and other issues limited the amount of time the Lions could spend in the pool. That seemed to have little negative effect though. “I wasn’t expecting the

swimmers more online to swim as fast as Find additional photos and they did full yesterday,” said results at St. Helens thechroniclecoach Bill Rash. “We looked pretty strong, both boys and girls. A few people had not only season-best times, but lifetime best times.” He said senior Tori Edwards and sophomore Cameron Lein were both swimming particularly fast. Those two each won the same two events. Lein won the boys 200- and 500-yard freestyle with times of 2:02 and 5:31. Edwards won those events in the girls competition with times of 2:19 and 6:22. Junior Dillon Swatski added a double-win for the boys. He won the individual medley (2:20) and the backstroke (1:05).

As a team, the boys won eight events. Senior Jacob Zartman added a win in the 50 freestyle and sophomore Trevor Moss won the 100 freestyle. The Lions won both the medley relay and the 400 freestyle. In addition to Edwards’ wins for the Lion girls, senior Johanna Parkhurst had a come-from-behind victory in the 200 individual medley. She trailed after 100 yards, but wound up winning by two seconds with a time of 2:37. Senior Ashley Stewart won the 100 butterfly and junior Jackie Prevish won the 100 backstroke. St. Helens also won the 200 medley relay and the 400 free relay. Rash said that Prevish and her two siblings – Jenny and Jonathan – all performed well. “The entire Prevish family is also doing great,” he said. kyle boggs / The Chronicle St. Helens takes on Sherwood at home on Jan. 16 at St. Helens junior Dillon Swatski swims to a first-place finish in the 200-yard individual medley during a dual meet against Parkrose last week. 4 p.m.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 fitness tips



says: make your resolutions last into

When running a gym it will come as no surprise to anyone that the busiest month of the entire calendar year is JanuSImon Date ary. There are many reasons why this is a busy month but it will be pretty obvious to people reading this that it is due to New Year’s resolutions for weight loss that people make. Whether through guilt connected with the holiday feasting, or just a new year that brings new hope and goals, January is a time where gyms are packed full and workouts are happening all over the place. So, it goes without saying then that as January winds down there is to see a reduction in numbers. But why? Well, we’re going to cover a few of those reasons here today which will

hopefully include one that perhaps you might use for stopping. The first, and probably the most common, is the fact that it is more work than people expected. That’s not to say people’s expectations are too high, but I think when people are actually physically in the gym or boot camp class or whatever it is they choose to do, the physical exertion is more work. When you’re actually there on the floor doing your 15th, 16th, 17th, and so on number of push-ups, your arms are burning, and you’ve been going at it for 45 minutes already, it’s easy to say stop. Push through those barriers and mentally understand that yes, if you haven’t worked out in a year or two years, or however long it has been, then it is going to be hard work. The second reason, and perhaps equally as memorable for those of you who have been there before, is that next-day ache – your recovery time. You had a good workout, you felt great and

it felt like you accomplished a lot. Then you wake up the next day, your body is in absolute agony and you can hardly get out of bed. This is completely normal. Again, depending on how frequently you work out, your body is in a kind of shock. I work out nearly every single day, and there are still days where I get up in the morning and my body is aching. I tried to get into the mindset that when my body is aching bad it is almost a badge of honor because I know I put in the work the day before. It isn’t, however, something you have to live with. Drink plenty of fluids, buy a foam roller, and as much as you are not going to want to do it, repeat whatever exercise got you into that mess in the first place. If your shoulders ache because of push-ups, when you get up the next morning and you’re aching, drop down and just do eight or nine push-ups. As you work out there is a great deal of lactic acid that eventually seeps into your muscles and that is

what is causing the aching. The third reason is based on results. Most people, especially those who just started working out for the first time, sometimes have trouble grasping how long their fitness journey may take. If you started working out Jan. 1 with 80 pounds to lose and you work out every single day in January, then you will see some results. But don’t be surprised if you are only down a few pounds in the initial month. This is completely normal, and can be distressing to some. It’s a hard concept to grasp, but I explain it to most people by saying you didn’t put on all of your weight in a month, so you certainly can’t expect to lose it all in the same amount of time. There is no miracle pill, there are no shortcuts; it just takes time. Everyone knows people who have had rapid weight-loss success stories, and we have a few at the gym, but they are pretty rare. Depending on how hard you go at it, a reasonable goal for an average person who is a little out of shape


could be 10 pounds in a month. You do the math to your particular situation. The last reason that people drop off after January is nutrition. This is absolutely critical for your fitness journey. You can work out every single day for a year (which I wouldn’t advise, by the way) but if your diet is incorrect then you won’t lose a pound. Again remember, there is no miracle pill, and taking supplements is not necessary. Just eat right. Cut out sugars, don’t eat right before you go to bed, eat five or six meals a day, none of which are bigger than the size of your fist. Honestly, if you are very serious about your journey, cut out alcohol. Completely! I listened to a speaker about a year ago describing what to eat on a fitness journey and she summed it up perfectly when she said if it didn’t have a mother or didn’t grow in dirt, don’t eat it! Simple! Eat vegetables, eat tons of fish, don’t fry anything, steam your food, drink plenty of water, and don’t eat less than two hours

before you go to bed. There are many, many generalizations and things that can affect your journey negatively. There is no one fit program that I could tell you here that will work for you. In much the same way that everybody looks different, everybody will react differently to certain things. What may work for some people may not work for you. If you have any questions about your fitness journey and what is going to get you working out into the month of February, do not hesitate to give me a call or stop by the gym for a free consultation. I can help you develop something that will work for you individually and will help you to maintain your journey through the rest of the year. Good luck everyone!

OSAA to honor top student sections The OSAA is launching a new competition, only this one’s not for the athletes. This year the Oregon School Activities Association is having its inaugural student section video contest. According to the OSAA website, the organization wants to determine which school has Oregon’s best student section. To do so, the OSAA is asking schools to film their student section during a game (or multiple games) and create a two- to three-minute video that “displays your school spirit at the highest level, showing sportsmanship and displaying school pride.” The video is required to include students, staff, coaches and other school personnel to explain why that particular student section is the best in the state.

Marci McGillivray at All videos will be posted on the OSAA YouTube channel. OSAA staff will narrow the videos down to the top five. The winner will then be determined by public vote: Whichever of those five videos gets the most likes on YouTube wins. The winning school receives a banner indicating the school has the No. 1 student section in the state, a catered lunch for all students who participate in the video, and additional points toward the 2013-14 OSAA Sportsmanship Award.

great attitudes,” Tufts said. “(The coaching staff) loves being around them and love their work ethic.” Down the stretch, the Indians were clutch at the free-throw line. Scappoose made 10-of-12 free-throw attempts in the fourth quarter, with five different Indians making trips to the line. Davis matched his scoring output a couple nights later, tallying another 16 points against Central. McNabb added nine and Johnson scored eight, but that wasn’t enough to overcome the Panthers. Tufts said the team played well defensively against Central, but needed to be more efficient on the other end of the court. “I was really happy with our effort and intensity on the defensive end of the floor. On offense we need to tighten some things up. If we had played a little better on the offensive end I think we walk away with a good road win,” he said. The two teams were remarkably consistent throughout the game. Scappoose scored either 10 or 11 points in every quarter, while Central scored 14

points in three quarters and 10 in the other. The Indians have three games this week. They played on the road against the Molalla Indians (1-10) on Jan. 14.

SHHS ready for league They aren’t heading into the Northwest Oregon Conference season with the winloss record they’d like, but the St. Helens Lions (2-7) are playing solid basketball in spurts. Now the challenge for the Lions is stringing those spurts together for four full quarters against their league opponents. St. Helens dropped a pair of games last week, falling at home on Jan. 7 to the Centennial Eagles (3-8) 49-42, and on the road to the No. 9 Silverton Foxes (5-3) 60-49 on Jan. 9. St. Helens led Centennial in the fourth quarter before the Eagles rallied to steal a win from the Lions’ home court. St. Helens had a hard time getting shots off against Centennial. The Lions attempted only 37 shots throughout the game and only shot four times from the free-throw line. Seniors Tanner Long and Corey West led the charge offensively for the Lions. Long had a team-high 17 points and West scored 10. Senior Gage Bumgardner added eight points. Long also grabbed nine rebounds, while Bumgardner had four assists, three boards and two steals. Long missed the Silverton game with an illness. In his absence, Bumgardner scored 21 points, had four rebounds and three assists. The Foxes hit two buzzer-beating 3-pointers in the first half. Silverton guard Ian Sucich made a corner 3 as time expired in the first period, putting Silverton up six. As the buzzer sounded at the end of the first half, Fox guard Sam Roth banked in a shot

For a while on Jan. 7, it looked like the Lions would indeed enter the win column. St. Helens raced out to a 2810 halftime lead over the Sprague Olympians before ending up on the wrong end of a 51-48 final score.

RIM: Terry moves to 21-0 From PAGE A12


in the second half, the Olympians frustrated the Lions with their full-court pressure. SHHS coach Billy McKinney said his team struggled to keep possession of the ball and turned it over too many times down the stretch. Sophomore Lydia Reardon scored eight points in the game and assisted on a handful of Tupper’s baskets. Baskets were harder to come by for St. Helens at home on Jan. 10 against Silverton (4-5). Silverton won, 36-14. Eight of the Lions’ 14 points came from the freethrow line, led by five points apiece from senior Nicole Harcourt and sophomore

Sophomore Cody Erhardt won his first two matches – by fall and decision – before dropping a 9-1 major decision to Terry in the 152-pound class. He rebounded from the loss to take fourth place in the division. Junior heavyweight Colton Wheeler also picked up a fourth-place finish. He ended the weekend 4-2 overall, both of his losses coming by a single point. Terry’s victory was the highlight for the Lions, as he improved his record to 21-0 on the season. He pinned his first-round opponent and then had wins of 8-3, 9-1 and 9-5 en route to the championship. Fellow freshman Haidon Allen nearly gave the Lions a second title, but he dropped a 7-6 decision in the 113-pound finals. Allen pinned each of his first two opponents in under a minute. Junior Mario Olmedo also reached the finals. The St. Helens heavyweight won two matches by fall, then earned a 4-2 victory. He was pinned with three seconds remaining in the championship match. A pair of Lions added fourth-place finishes. Sophomore Jose Silva was 2-2 with a pair of pins to take fourth at 120 pounds. He had a first-round bye and also won once by forfeit. Sophomore Michael Bowen went 4-2 to take fourth at 126 pounds.

He had a two first-round pins and a second-round pin before going up against Scappoose junior Alex Foumal. Bowen earned a 12-9 decision against Foumal to advance to the third-place match, where he was pinned. Foumal won the fifth-place match by technical fall.
