13 Nights gets new director ST. HELENS – Following the resignation of the 13 Nights on the River board in December, the St. Helens Community Foundation has hired a new managing director to take the helm of the troubled summer series. Christina Sullivan has been named as the new managing director for 13 Nights. She is a resident of St. Helens and has a university-level degree in business and public relations. “Christina has a track record of positive, effective volunteering in our community,” said SHCF President Bob Salisbury. “Our entire Board was impressed with Christina’s experience and positive, upbeat attitude.” According to the Community Foundation, Sullivan is already hard at work on getting the 2013 concert series up and running and is now in the process of assembling her volunteer management team. Nikki Tetz, assistant branch manager at Chase Bank in St. Helens, has accepted the role of treasurer. Sullivan is also busy lining up sponsors and bands for the season. “I’m so excited for this opportunity to help organize an event that the families of our community can continue to enjoy for many years to come,” said Sullivan. Anyone interested in volunteering for the 13 Night concert series should submit a letter of interest to Sullivan via email at christina.13nights@gmail. com. According to Salisbury, the St. Helens Community Foundation is dedicated to building a dynamic community by nurturing groups and events which make our community a better place.

Wage theft subject of next town hall BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Wage theft; it’s a crime many of its victims aren’t even aware of. Oregon State representatives Brad Witt (District 31), Joe Gallegos (District 30) and Ben Unger (District 29) are hoping to change that. The three legislators will host a town hall meeting to discuss the problem of wage theft and also present possible solutions on Jan. 19 at Portland Community College’s Rock Creek Campus. The town hall meeting begins at 10 a.m. and is ex-

pected to run until noon. The public is encouraged to attend and participate. “Brad Brad Witt Witt has been one of the major supporters of legislation we’ve been trying to put through,” said Amanda Aguilar Shank of Scappoose-based Rural Organizing Project. “I think because he has such a strong labor background, he’s been

one of the main champions. He’s one of our strongest allies.”

What is wage theft? Put simply, it is the failure of an employer to pay its work-

ers. Wage theft occurs when an employer pays workers less than agreed or less than minimum wage, does not pay workers overtime, fails to pay workers for all their hours, forces workers to work off the clock or under the table, denies and fails to pay legally required meal and rest breaks, steals tips, or does not pay workers at all. Unfortunately, it’s also a widespread problem across Oregon, especially among low-wage workers. According to the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Indus-

Bomb scare closes Scappoose City Hall SHARI PHIEL / The Chronicle

Local police and fire personell were deployed to close off a 300-foot radius around Scappoose City Hall after a man brought in what he thought was a disarmed bomb.

SCAPPOOSE — Scappoose City Hall was shut down, along with several businesses in the area, after a man walked into the police department on the afternoon of Jan. 8 and told police officers he had what he believed

was a bomb in a small plastic cooler. The man said he had disarmed the bomb and wanted to turn it in. “This gentleman reasonably believed he had found a bomb,” said Scappoose Police Chief Doug Griesen. “And he did disarm it. He cut the wires.” Police officers then took the device and the cooler

outside, evacuated the building and closed off all areas within a 300-foot radius of the building, including Columbia Avenue from U.S. Highway 30 to Second Street. The Oregon State Police bomb squad was called to the scene from Salem to dispose of the bomb. After the OSP bomb squad determined the

cooler did contain items that could have been part of a bomb, the decision was made to detonate the cooler at the scene. “They took every precaution possible, which I commend them for 100 percent. They put a barrier around it, they used sand bags, then blew it up,” said Griesen. “Once they blew it

up, they determined it wasn’t a bomb.” The man who brought in the cooler was questioned and released. Griesen said no arrests will be made. The Scappoose Police chief also said people would likely be surprised to learn how often explosive devices

Icy roads likely cause of Highway 30 crash BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

A two-car crash on Highway 30 was just one of 50 accidents that occurred the morning of Jan. 11. Icy conditions on the roadways was a major factor in many of those accidents.

DEER ISLAND — Icy roadways were the cause of dozens of accidents throughout Oregon on Friday, Jan. 11, including an early morning collision between a Ford F-250 and a Ford Mustang on Highway 30 near Deer Island. One person was injured the crash. Oregon State Police were as-

sisted by numerous local police and fire departments as it responded to approximately 50 traffic crashes, most non-injury, during a four hour period between 5–9 a.m. on Jan. 11 in the mid to north Willamette Valley. OSP said icy conditions were a contributing factor in a majority of the crashes. According to OSP, speed and icy road conditions were also believed to have been contributing factors and is continuing its investigation

into the accident, which blocked the highway for about an hour. Senior Trooper Robin May reported that at approximately 7:28 a.m., a 2003 Ford F250 pickup driven by Matthew Anderson, 16, from Deer Island, was eastbound on Highway 30 near milepost 30 in the right hand lane. Anderson accelerated to pass another eastbound vehicle then lost control on the icy roadway. ­­­­ See CRASH, Page A3

Pre-tax transit benefits increased in 2013 Thanks to Congress’ recently-passed fiscal package, commuters using public transit or van pools are now eligible for the same amount in employer-provided, pre-tax commuter benefits this year as their colleagues who drive to work and park their cars. Workers with employers offering transportation benefits can save money by paying for their monthly transit costs through pre-tax payroll deductions. In 2012, the amount that mass transit commuters were allowed to set aside each month in their pre-tax commuter accounts dropped from $230 to just $125. However, the limit for parking costs increased to $240, from $230, because of a cost of living adjustment. 11-16-11 3x2D Cuts:Layout 1 6/22/12 The new fiscal measure increases the pre-

tax transit benefit to approximately $240 a month. Workers should act quickly because the transit savings could just be temporary. The fiscal package passed by Congress extended the savings but did not make it permanent. Whether or not the program will continue after this year will depend on any future legislation proposed. According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, the loss in tax revenue from the transit parity provision is estimated at $220 million.

WAGES: many workers are never paid From PAGE A1

tries, workers filed more than 8,500 wage claims totaling $24.5 million in unpaid wages during a recent 5-year period. “Nearly every low wage worker we talk to has experienced some form of wage theft. We were shocked to find out that wage theft is often normal in workplaces, especially when the workers are women and people of color,” said Aguilar Shank The Rural Organizing Project is part of the Coalition to Stop Wage Theft, which has facilitated education-style workshops around the state to educate workers about how to protect themselves. “It’s a problem that occurs at many different levels and often manifests itself in different manners depending on what occupation folks are in,” said Witt, who noted that anecdotal evidence seems to support the idea that wage theft has been on the rise and may be attributed to the

ongoing economic downturn. “Some workers aren’t paid at all. In other professions, it may be a misclassification; so people are being paid at incorrect rate. There are a whole host of ways this problem manifests itself,” said Witt. The Northwest Workers’ Justice Project (NWJP), a non-profit organization that provides legal support to workers, has heard from hundreds of Washington County residents who have experienced wage theft. Examples of wage cases NWJP has handled include landscapers paid nothing for multiple weeks of work, restaurant workers who received far less than the minimum wage

for years, and construction workers who put in long hours but did not get paid for their overtime. Genice Rabe of NWJP said, “Wage theft doesn’t just hurt the workers who are victims. It also robs communities of local spending and tax revenue. It undermines responsible employers who follow the law when they have to compete against those who do not.” At the town hall, the state representatives, workers, and those who assist workers will identify the problem and discuss solutions. Legislative solutions have been proposed. They include barring retaliation when workers demand pay earned for their labor and broader responsibility for unpaid wages. Workers who have experienced wage theft and related problems and those interested in learning about the problem and solutions are invited to attend and participate and will have the opportunity to engage with Witt, Gallegos and Unger.

COUNCIL: looking to the future of Scappoose From PAGE A1

Burge, Gedlich and Erickson were re-elected to their positions with the council last November. Meshell was also elected in November and replaced outgoing Councilor Jeff Bernhard, who chose not to run for reelection following nine years on the council. The council also selected Barb Hayden, president of the Scappoose Historical Society, from among three applicants to replace outgoing Councilor Judie Ingham. Ingham left the council after serving for a decade, and with nearly two years left on her current term, to

spend more time on her business. She was last elected to the council in the November 2010 elections. When asked what the role of the city council was, Hayden said, “The city council determines which direction the city is going to go and what the future looks like… The council is the one that actually looks at the city and sees what’s going to be best for it.” For Hayden, Scappoose’s future includes a vibrant and steady growth period. “Scappoose in 10 years is not going to be just a small, bedroom community. Scappoose’s population is going

to continue to grow as the migration from Portland continues. We’re going to have to look at areas for more residential areas here in the town. We’re going to have to really get behind our small businesses and make sure they’re prosperous,” Hayden said. “I want to grow not explode.” For the new council member, that growth also includes repairing streets and putting in sidewalks. Hayden also said she will be open to exploring all sides of an issue and also sees debate and discussion – even disagreement – as an integral part of the decision making process.

along six miles stretch of Interstate 5 between milepost 255 and 261 in the Salem area. Troopers from the Albany Area Command office responded to 11 crashes, most on secondary state highways. McMinnville area troopers responded to nine reported crashes. The Deer Island accident also sparked a heated debate about younger drivers being allowed to drive during particularly hazardous road conditions on The Chronicle’s Facebook page. “Although the graduated license in Oregon requires supervised driving under various conditions before licensing, few parents have taken that responsibility. Young drivers tend to

misjudge conditions and also make poor decisions, even if they have extra weight in the rear of their truck, trying to pass in black ice conditions is never a smart thing to do,” said Lynn Chiotti, of the Columbia County Traffic Safety Commission. “Having grown up in Montana, we had a saying for driving in ice and snow: Put it in low to go. And use a light touch on the gas pedal at all times. It is a rule I drive by even today.” OSP was assisted at the Deer Island accident scene by St. Helens Police Department, Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, ODOT, and Columbia River Fire & Rescue. No citations have been issued.

Scappoose Library joins Passport Program Beginning in January, a new Oregon Library Passport Program will allow cardholders from participating libraries to register and use other participating libraries across the state. The Oregon Library Association is launching this voluntary program to expand Oregonians’ access to library materials, something that has been a goal of the professional organization for many years. Scappoose Public Library Director Dan White is a member of the Oregon Library Association Resource Sharing Committee responsible for developing this new program. The Scappoose Library began offering the new Oregon Library Passport Program cards starting Jan. 2. “The Oregon Library Passport Program recognizes that library service ought to mirror the way Oregonians live, work, shop, and play, and reduce barriers to library service,” said Michele Burke, President of the Oregon Library Association. The underlying premise of the Passport Program is that cardholders of legallyestablished libraries ought to be able to use other legally-established libraries. The passport program is

lic Library during your lunch hour. No problem. In addition, Oregonians who are conducting research will be able to tap into the vast resources of academic libraries, including the Oregon State University libraries, Oregon Health Sciences University and several community colleges. The key to the Passport Program is that you first need a library card from your participating local “home” library. Passport Program details can be found at www. Passport including a list of Participating libraries. The list continues to grow – by the end of January there will be over 55 libraries statewide signed up for the program and additional libraries will continue to join throughout 2013. Anyone interested in using the Passport Program, but doesn’t have a local library participating in the program should ask the library staff. For nearly 75 years, the Oregon Library Association has existed to promote and advance library service through public and professional education and cooperation. Learn more at

meant to be an exchange; a library extends service to users of other participating libraries, and vice versa. Here is how it works: Oregon public and academic libraries opt to become Passport Program participating libraries. The registered cardholders at those libraries are then able to visit, register without the customary “out of area” card fees, and use the materials at any other participating library. Their home library card becomes their “passport” or ticket to registering for library cards at other participating libraries throughout Oregon. Patrons are responsible for managing their checkouts, complying with the Passport member library’s policies regarding due dates, late fees, and materials limits, and must return materials directly to the library they borrowed from; there is no libraryto-library return delivery mechanism. So, if someone is vacationing at the coast and needs some beach reading, you can register for library cards in Astoria, Rockaway, Garibaldi, or Florence. Or perhaps you live in Scappoose, but work in Hillsboro, and want to use Hillsboro Pub-

Jean was one of a kind: mother, wife, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, interior designer, and friend. She celebrated the gift of life as not many have before her and fewer will after. An artist, dancer, hiker, skier, equestrian, political activist, and student, Jean was a Catholic Christian of profound depth who embraced and welcomed all.

Jean and Bob were wed in 1983 and through the years, traveled/ hiked the Pacific Northwest, parts of Utah, Alaska, Switzerland, and even the Italian Dolomites. Jean and Bob enjoyed life on their Warren acreage where they liked to garden and entertain. In fact, life with Jean was one party, reunion, dance, hike, and entertainment after another. She couldn’t resist conversation, and never wanted the visit to end. She was a member of the American Society of Interiors Designers. Jean was a graduate of St. Helens High School and Bassist Institute’s School of Design. She also studied at Marylhurst College and was just a few credits shy of earning a bachelor’s degree. Jean owned her own business, Jeans Interiors, from 1976 to 2010. An accomplished interior designer, oil painter, and tap dancer, she loved art in all its forms. Jean was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Pauline, and by her youngest son, John. She is survived by her husband, Robert; sister Pat; her remaining sons and their families: Douglas (Leslie), Franklin (Marcia), Timothy (Cheri), David Bryan (Wyndee) and Matthew (Rhonda). She was stepmother to Bob’s son Robert R. (Sue), and daughter, Vicki Murray (Perry) who was a loving daughter to Jean.

Letters Ageing man Still doing a difficult task, the elder congressmen are standing by their arrogant convictions each year for our nation. All this has given us is another reason for a big crisis. I can’t understand why they continue giving other nations spending money as we’re making payments for oil. Why do we keep making


deals with so many other nations, making us have these crises? Spending our nation’s tax dollars overseas is the same as paying favors. What for? We need our tax dollars to pay down our debt not other nation’s debt. This Congress has more of an argumentative way toward making deals with square nails and not helping

OSU Extension hosts guest speaker next week Kym Pokorny, garden writer and editor for The Oregonian, will give a public talk on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 6:30 p.m., in the Loo-Wit room of St. Helens High School. The talk is being sponsored by the OSU Extension office and the Columbia County Master Gardeners Association. It is free and open to the public. Pokorny will focus on low maintenance plants, describing ornamental plants that can survive with little attention and low summer watering in our sometimes challenging soils.

Along with being an enthusiastic gardener, Pokorny is also known as an outstanding speaker. Pokorny grew up on her dad’s wholesale nursery in Northern California. She studied journalism and environmental science in college and graduated with a degree in journalism. She’s been a journalist for 23 years, the last 10 as garden writer for The Oregonian in Portland. She has also served as a regional director for the Garden Writers Association and as chair-

man of the GWA Foundation Board. Pokorny has won a Quill & Trowel Award, two Garden Globes and the Herald Award from the American Nursery & Landscape Association. She lives happily with her dog, Sadie, in Portland where her garden threatens to engulf her 1922 house. For more information about the program contact the Columbia County Extension office, located at 505 N. Columbia River Highway in St. Helens or call (503) 397-3462.

Bring a little more color to dark winter days Do Oregon’s short, dark winter days have you dreaming of the sunshine of exotic lands? Jazz up your windowsill with glamorous orchids. The bold beauties are not as finicky to care for as their reputation claims, according to Master Gardeners who were trained by the Oregon State University Extension Service. An orchid that is properly watered can brighten your home for years. Lisa Long of St. Helens, a Master Gardener since 1994, has grown orchids for almost 20 years. Eleven potted orchids rest on trays of pebbles on her windowsill. One plant prevailed for 18 years, but it took 15 years to bloom from a seedling. “People think they’re fussy, but a lot of it is common sense,” Long said. Judie Rickus of Newport, a Master Gardener since 2009, grows 100 orchids in a 10-foot by 14-foot stickbuilt greenhouse attached to her deck. The treasured flowers with myriad colors delight in an ocean view. “There are many kinds of orchids that survive in many places,” Rickus said. “There are mountain orchids that survive the cold with no problem and others that only want to be tropical. We lean on the warm side of things because we heat the

greenhouse with a separate heating unit.” Rickus keeps the thermostat in the greenhouse at 75 degrees during the day and 55 degrees at night. An alarm system lets her know if the temperature outside drops significantly. The two Master Gardeners offered the following tips to get you started with orchids: Plant them in aerated ceramic or plastic pots avail-

able at a home and garden center. Fill the pots with orchid bark. With thousands of orchid varieties out there, learn about the care needs of your individual species. Research your species online or through books, or ask your local chapter of the Oregon Orchid Society. Generally, water them and add water-soluble fertilizer once per week. Know the

watering and fertilization needs of your species. Overwatering is the most common cause of orchid death. Rickus recommends placing the pot in a larger container with a few inches of water for 15 to 20 minutes to soak the bark once per week. To tell if you have watered enough, stick your finger one inch into the bark. If the bark feels damp, do not water.

The Master Gardeners suggest wiping off any dust on the leaves with a damp paper towel. Maintain a steady temperature in your house. Orchids are sensitive to temperature changes. Make sure your plant is not

exposed to drafts. If you don’t have a greenhouse, a windowsill is a fine spot for your orchids. The Oregon Orchid Society also has information and resources at

PRISCILLA (F) Priscilla may be my name but being a princess is my game. It’s true, the story you heard that I came from a shelter in California is true. I’m still kinda new to the adoption kennels, so the staff is still learning about me and what I do and don’t like. I can tell you that I get along well with other dogs. I am a little shy when you first meet me, I’m not always the first one up at the front of the cage to get all the attention, then again, I am a princess. I would like a family to call my own, I would like to either have a backyard to play in every day or be able to go for walks all the time. Actually both would be great!!!

The Columbia City Council will hold a public hearing at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 24, 2013, to hear public testimony about a proposed loan under the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program for water system improvements as recommended by the Water Source and Development Committee and the Cityʼs draft Water System Master Plan. The public hearing will be held in the Council Chambers of the City Hall, 1840 Second Street, Columbia City, Oregon.


Public Notices

The water system improvements include purchasing and installing 546 automated meters and automated meter reading equipment, completing several pressure reducing valve (PRV) improvements, performing a systemwide leak detection survey, and abandoning 7,650 feet of old 4-inch water main. The total estimated cost for the project is $770,653. The proposed water system improvements are efficiency-related and will qualify for 40% debt forgiveness, resulting in a cost savings of more than $308,000. The Safe Drinking Water Loan would be used to finance the remaining out-of-pocket costs for the project, which are estimated to be no higher than $462,392. The terms of the loan would be 20 years, and the interest rate is estimated to be 2.7%. The loan would be repaid with user fees.

Additional information about the proposal may be viewed on the Cityʼs website at or may be inspected at the City Hall during regular business hours.

DEQ issues advisory for parts of Oregon Robotics tournament comes to St. Helens The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is issuing an air stagnation advisory for portions of south-central, southwest and north-central Oregon due to stagnant air conditions and increasingly high levels of air pollution. The advisory is in effect through early Sunday, Jan. 20 in portions of Klamath and Lake counties and through 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17 in parts of Curry, Douglas, Jackson and Josephine counties. Stagnant conditions are developing in north-central Oregon and are expected to worsen in Gilliam, Morrow, Sherman, Umatilla and Wasco counties. A strong high pressure ridge is building over the Pacific Northwest and will peak across the region through Thursday, Jan. 17, but will extend into

the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Due to a persistent temperature inversion and light winds, air quality in portions of the affected area are already as bad or worse than during last August’s forest fires, and all outdoor activity should be limited for all people in the affected areas. Air quality is expected to deteriorate during the week in many areas and pollutants may reach “unhealthful” levels. For a map showing specific areas affected by the advisory, go to the website whv/?wfo=mfr*. The DEQ is asking people in the affected counties to halt open burning and limit use of uncertified woodstoves. Persons with questions about open burning should contact their local fire department. DEQ

urges people who have alternative heating options not to burn in woodstoves or fireplaces. People should also limit driving and vehicle idling. During periods of air stagnation, smoke is trapped at ground level where people breathe the smoke particles deep into their lungs. Numerous scientific studies have linked smoke pollution to a variety of problems including but not limited to coughing, aggravated asthma, bronchitis and irregular heartbeat. Health officials recommend that young children, pregnant women, asthma sufferers, those with lung or heart conditions and adults age 65 and older limit vigorous outdoor activity. Pollution levels are highest during evening and morning hours due to woodstove use and inver-

sion conditions. Individuals likely to be affected should check with their doctor should pollution make asthma or other medical conditions worse. The public can check local air quality levels via DEQ’s Air Quality Index, a color-coded tool that shows pollution levels. Green is good, yellow is moderate, orange is unhealthy for sensitive groups and red is unhealthy for all groups. Visit DEQ’s website at www. aspx. For real-time, hourly data for fine particulate, go to aqm/rt/rtHourlyCone.aspx and click on the drop-down menu to locate your community. Information about smoke pollution is on DEQ’s website at burning/woodstoves/index. htm.

The St. Helens Robotics Team will host a First Tech Challenge (FTC) state-qualifying tournament at St. Helens High School on Feb. 9. “Ring It Up,” as FTC is calling this year’s competition, tasks students to use their technical knowledge of science, math, engineering and computer programming to build a robot that places rings on a stacking rack. There will be 24 teams from across the state of Oregon competing with and against one another in a series of round-robin matches. Top-seeded teams will compete in elimination matches to determine a champion. Local engineers serving as judges will evaluate each team’s design to determine the Best in Show award-winner. For more information about FTC Robotics, go to Columbia River PUD, St. Helens Computer Center and Portland General Electric are sponsoring this year’s event. Blackbird Catering will provide concessions. The St. Helens tournament will be open to the public from noon until 6 p.m.

Scappoose’s sweet 16 seals Pac-Rim win

Sixteen Indians place in top six of their weight class at two-day tournament; St. Helens finishes 15th out of 18 teams in competition BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

SEASIDE — The Scappoose Indians placed in every weight class they entered and won four individual titles en route to the 2013 Pacific-Rim Wrestling Championship title Jan. 11-12. Scappoose scored 225.5 team points. Second-place Estacada had 192. St. Helens finished 15th out of 18 schools with 33.5 points. Scappoose individuals were among the top six wrestlers in 12 of the 14 weight classes. The Indians had two of the top six wrestlers in four weight classes, giving Scappoose 16 place-winners overall. The Indians didn’t have a

place-winner in the 113-pound or 195-pound divisions — the only two weight classes they didn’t enter. Scappoose senior Isaiah Goodrich won MVP honors for the upper weights. He won the 170-pound bracket after going 3-0 with two pins and a 9-4 decision in the title bout. Scappoose also had the top finishers at 106, 145 and 220 pounds. Freshman Kurt Mode pinned all three of his opponents at 106 pounds to win the title. His teammate, freshman Braxton Sue, ended up fourth in that division. Senior Ryan Bond came up with a tech fall victory and three straight pins to win the 145-pound title. He topped teammate Wade Nelson, a jun-

ior, in the semifinals. Nelson ended up in fifth place. Sophomore Devin Ray had the other Indian individual win. He scored a first-round pin, a 4-1 decision and a secondround pin to win at 220

pounds. Scappoose also had a slew of third- and fourth-place finishers. Michael Lohman won the consolation round to take third place at 152 pounds, as did


Johnathan Tardif at 160, Bailey Apon at 180 and Branden Bailey at 285. Taylor Walden, Ben Gadbois and Dakota Sue all had fourth-place finishes to go along with Braxton Sue’s fourth at 106. Walden’s came in the 120-pound bracket, Gadbois’ was at 132 and Dakota Sue’s at 138. Scappoose’s scoring was rounded out by sixth-place finishes from Alex Foumal (120), Justin Hering (126) and Hunter Hoyt (138). Senior Andrew Duggan highlighted the event for St. Helens. He finished fifth in the 132-pound bracket. Cole Snider added a sixth-place finish in the 113-pound division for the Lions. The two-day Pac-Rim

Championship left the Lions competing three times in three days. St. Helens lost a dual meet to Putnam High School at home on Jan. 10, 60-24. The Lions were stuck forfeiting in six weight classes, meaning the Kingsmen scored 36 points without having to wrestle a match. In the eight contested bouts, St. Helens and Putnam split 4-4 – all of the matches decided by pinfall. The Lions’ four wins came from Jon Luttrell, Jose Silva, Jesse Vanderwall and Brandon Cupp. St. Helens wrestles a dual meet at Parkrose High School at 7 p.m. on Jan. 16. Next on the schedule for Scappoose is a home meet against Astoria and Seaside at 7 p.m. on Jan. 16.


St. Helens shrugs off loss with last-second win at Sherwood BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Rianne Tupper silenced the crowd at Sherwood High School on Jan. 11. After watching their 10point lead evaporate over the final 1:41 of the game, the St. Helens Lions (7-5, 1-1) found themselves and the Sherwood Bowmen (1-10, 02) tied with seconds left on the clock. The Lions inbounded the ball to junior Nicole Harcourt. Harcourt looked ready to heave a desperation shot, then fired a pass to Tupper instead. “I thought she was gonna launch it,” said St. Helens coach Billy McKinney. Tupper caught the pass, pump-faked her defender, took a dribble and knocked down a 10-foot jump shot with 1.2 seconds left to give St. Helens a 49-47 victory. The win served as a bit of retribution in McKinney’s eyes, following a disappointing 51-42 loss at home to Liberty (4-8, 2-0) on Jan. 8. There was no disappointment for St. Helens three nights later, although the same couldn’t be said for Sherwood. After Tupper’s clutch shot fell through the net, the Bowmen and their fans fell silent. “It went quiet. You could just hear a pin drop,” McKinney said. In the Sherwood bleachers, that is. The Lions, on the other hand, celebrated six years of losses to the Bowmen gone down the drain. “The kids looked like they won the national championship. I think Jillian (Ross) said ‘We’ve never beat Sherwood.’ I said ‘You beat ’em tonight. You beat ’em in their place,’” McKinney said. The win was the Lions’ first over the Bowmen since the Northwest Oregon Conference’s inception before the 2006-07 season. Sherwood had won all 12 contests prior to Friday night.

Scappoose senior Logan Stanton puts up a hook shot against Canada’s Collingwood High School during a Jan. 8 win.

Tribe tops visiting club from Canada


St. Helens sophomore guard Michelle Sass brings the ball up the court against Liberty on Jan. 8. Sass led the Lions in scoring against both the Falcons and the Sherwood Bowmen last week.

Tupper was a big factor in the victory. Prior to her game-winning shot, she had drained seven free throws in a row. That helped put St.

Helens ahead by 10 points with 1:41 to go. But Sherwood hit a couple of 3-pointers and fought its way back into a tie before Harcourt

found Tupper to win it. Tupper, a sophomore, and Ross, a senior, each scored See SHHS, Page A14

The Scappoose Indians (49) split a pair of home games last week. The Tribe cruised to a 52-36 victory over the visiting Collingwood Cavaliers (78) of West Vancouver, British Columbia. The Indians then came up short in a comeback attempt against a more familiar opponent, the ninth-ranked Central Panthers (11-2) of Independence. Scappoose jumped on Collingwood 13-1 on Jan. 8, and didn’t allow a field goal until the final 30 seconds of the first quarter. The Indians pressured the Cavalier ball-handlers into turnover after turnover. When Collingwood was able to get a shot off, there usually wasn’t a second chance opportunity as the Indians were there to snag the rebounds.

Scappoose’s first-half lead could have been much bigger, but the Tribe had a tough time converting their field goal attempts inside the key. Still, the Indians led by 7 points at halftime on their way to a 16-point win. Senior Zach Smith knocked down five 3-pointers on his way to a game-high 21 points for the Tribe. Senior Chris Tinning scored 8 and senior Kyle Kramer had 7. Scappoose struggled offensively in the first half against Central. Despite having only 11 points at halftime – all from Smith and junior Mitchell Davis – the Tribe only trailed by 7. That was in large part because of their effort on the defensive end of the floor.

St. Helens and Sandy split at NWOC dual

KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle

Zack Kessinger finished second in the 200 freestyle on Jan. 9.

ST. HELENS — The St. Helens Lions boys showed little rust against the Sandy Pioneers on Jan. 9 following a three-week layoff from competition. The Lions beat the Pioneers 98-72, even without one of their top swimmers. The girls – also missing a key contributor – came up short against Sandy, losing 8871. St. Helens coach Bill Rash said Sandy’s girls are favored to win the Northwest Oregon

Conference championship this season, so he was encouraged with the outing. “Johanna Parkhurst, Jackie Prevish, Brook Hopkins, Patience Marshall and Emily Spears all did really well,” Rash said. Spears, Hopkins and Prevish came up with the Lions’ three victories on the afternoon. Spears’ came in the 100 freestyle, Hopkins’ in the 100 backstroke and Prevish’s in the 100 breaststroke.

Prevish was also two-hundredths of a second away from a first-place finish in the 50yard freestyle. The boys picked up wins in four individual events and two of the three relays. Senior Jared Houghtelling won the 200- and 500-yard freestyle races, freshman Cameron Lein won the butterfly and senior Devon Brady won the 100 free. “Jonathan Prevish, Cameron Lein, Devon Brady,

Trevor Moss and Dillon Swatski all did a great job helping the boys to win,” Rash said. The boys were swimming without one of their top shortdistance swimmers, junior Andrew Collson, while the girls were without junior long-distance specialist Tori Edwards. Next up for St. Helens is a home meet against Milwaukie High School at 4 p.m. on Jan. 16. – Kyle Boggs

Krahn shows versatility while leading Indians BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

OSAA rules state a swimmer can compete in only two individual events and two relay events at any given high school swim meet. That severely limits the Scappoose High School coaches’ ability to fully take advantage of senior Sadie Krahn’s abilities. But with two meets last week, Krahn was able to record top-five finishes in four different individual events. Even with several athletes trying out new events in their first meet back after an extended layoff from competition, the Scappoose High School girls swim team cruised to a 94-72 win over Astoria on Jan. 8. The Tribe boys couldn’t pull off a victory of their own, instead dropping an 82-

45 dual meet against the Fishermen. Krahn led the way for the Indian girls with wins in the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly. She also swam a personal

best time in the butterfly leg on the winning medley relay team. Sophomore Stefany Alvarez finished second to Krahn in the 200.

Coach David Richmond said Molly Orr, Jillian Werderber and Marie Hannah all performed well too, each setting personal best times. “We had a lot of girls try-

ing new events for the first time in a meet. We were pleased to see them swim so well overall,” Richmond said. The meet started strong for the boys, as senior Gilberto Martinez gave the medley relay team the lead during the third leg of the relay. Once he pulled the team into first place, the Indians held off the Fishermen the rest of the way. Richmond pointed out that Mick Vanek, Kyler Mizee and Will Sprute all improved on their season best times during the dual meet. Following the dual meet, the Indians went to The Dalles for an invitational on Jan. 12. Scappoose’s girls finished ninth out of 10 teams and the boys were 12th out of 12, but there some top-10 individual performances at the big meet. Krahn had the best two finishes of the afternoon for

the Indians. She was fourth in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 27.36 seconds. Showing her versatility, she later finished fifth in the 500-yard freestyle, finishing in 6:19. She was the only swimmer – boy or girl – to finish in the top 10 of both the shortest and longest event of the day. Alvarez scored a sixthplace finish in the 100-yard butterfly. She added to that with a 10th-place finish in the 100 freestyle. The boys medley relay team of Sam Herscovitz, Vanek, Keegan Carey and Martinez finished sixth out of 17 teams. Herscovitz and Vanek finished 12th and 13th, respectively, in the 100 freestyle to take top individual finishes for the Tribe boys. Their times were 58.86 and 59.37 seconds. Scappoose hosted Seaside for a dual meet on Jan. 15.

breeder might do a controlled cross, moving pollen from the flower of one variety to the female parts of the flower of another variety. This work is done both commercially and in universities to develop new plant types. On the other hand, many varieties arise from chance crossings that get noticed once the seedling matures and shows unique qualities. Sometimes, trees produce spontaneous mutations that might affect only one limb and have desirable

characteristics like nicer fruit or disease resistance on that limb only. But, then the question is, ‘How do you get more of these new plants?’ You can’t make the cross repeatedly since each time you will get seeds and thus plants with mixed genetics and appearance. So you have to clone the new plants, in other words, make an exact copy. Many woody trees and shrubs are fairly easy to propagate by rooted cuttings. Each cutting is a clone from the “mother” plant. This is the way

being caught off the beaches.

Sturgeon Recreational sturgeon fisheries on the lower Columbia River will begin under permanent regulations for 2013 except the annual bag limit in 2013 will be one white sturgeon total in all zones statewide. Modifications to the 2013 sturgeon fishery will be considered at the Jan. 30 joint state hearing. Buoy 10 upstream to Wauna Powerlines: Effective Jan. 1, the following regulations are in place for this section of the river: Retention of white sturgeon is allowed seven days per week until further notice with a daily limit of one white sturgeon between 3854 inches fork length and an annual Oregon limit of one legal sturgeon for all zones state wide; retention of green sturgeon is prohibited; catch-and-release of sturgeon may continue during retention closures.

Wauna Powerlines upstream to Bonneville Dam: Effective Jan. 1, the following regulations are in place for this section of the river as well as all Oregon tributaries except the Willamette River downstream of Willamette Falls (including Multnomah Channel and Gilbert River): Retention of white sturgeon is allowed three days per week (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) until further notice with a daily limit of one white sturgeon between 38-54 inches fork length and an annual Oregon limit of one legal sturgeon for all zones state wide; retention of green sturgeon is prohibited; catch-andrelease of sturgeon may continue during retention closures; until further notice, retention of sturgeon prohibited in the Willamette River downstream of Willamette Falls to the mouth including Multnomah Channel and Gilbert River. Sturgeon angling was slow last week on the lower Columbia

limbs of an existing fruit tree with the ultimate aim of converting the entire tree to the new variety. Today, commercial grafting is more often done by “budding, in which a dormant bud of the desirable tree and is inserted into the rootstock in a small “T” cut. The other big change has come in rootstocks. Some seedling rootstocks are still used, especially for ornamentals like Japanese maples. But for apples and most fruit varieties, specialty rootstocks are used. New rootstocks control the ultimate size of the new tree (dwarf or semi-dwarf), may provide some disease resistance, and will come into first fruit much faster than a graft on a seedling rootstock. For much more detailed information, see this excellent publication available free on line from Washington State University: ications/PNW496/PNW496.pd f.

most woody plants are propagated in the nursery industry. But some woody plants root poorly as cuttings. However, they can be grafted onto a seedling (or other) rootstock. Almost all fruit trees except figs (which root from cuttings easily) are propagated in this way. For years, apples were grafted onto seedling rootstocks. In the fall, the farmer would sow seeds and new plants would emerge in the spring. After growing through the summer, the seedlings would be suitable for grafting next winter. Winter was traditionally used for grafting because the success rate is was higher when the scion and rootstock are dormant when first grafted. The farmer would take the rootstock and make a cut into which he (or she) would stick a piece of the variety (say, Gravenstein, Northern Spy, or King) they wanted a copy of. The joint would then be wrapped tightly and coated in beeswax or grafting “goop”. If all went well, the rootstock and scion (the piece of the variety) would knit together over the winter and next year could be planted out into an orchard. Another technique involved grafting a new variety onto

It was Central’s defense in the final seconds, however, that let the Panthers escape SHS with a 43-40 win. Central led 32-24 entering the fourth quarter. Smith helped bring the Indians to the verge of victory by scoring 10 of his 14 points in the final period. Then the Indians found themselves with the ball, trailing by 3 with 10 seconds left. On the Tribe’s final play, the Panthers were able to disrupt the Indian offense and keep Scappoose from attempting a final shot. “We (the coaching staff) were extremely pleased with

our defensive effort, our energy and our execution,” said Scappoose head coach Rahim Tufts. “If we knock down our free throws and hit our open shots, we win the game.” Scappoose was just 7-for16 (.438 percent) at the freethrow line. Davis was a bright spot for Scappoose’s offense. The 6’0” swingman came off the bench to score a team-high 15 points. “Mitch played well and played really aggressive on both ends of the floor. He needs to continue to play with that amount of confidence,” Tufts said. That was the final nonconference tune-up for Scappoose,

Lions start off the league season with a win BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

St. Helens opened Northwest Oregon Conference play with a win over the Liberty Falcons (6-6, 1-1) on Jan. 8. The Lions (7-5, 1-1) followed that with a 65-50 home loss to the Sherwood Bowmen (7-4, 2-0) on Jan. 11. A balanced scoring attack and a little bit of everything from junior point guard Tanner Long and senior wing Jared Bonney led to a 49-39 win over the Falcons. Four Lions scored between 7-10 points, led by senior post Nathan Hunter with 10. Senior Cody Beisley scored 9, Long scored 8 and senior Cody Galvin came off the bench to score 7 to help the Lions start league play with a victory. Along with his 8 points, Long had six assists, six reGIRLS BASKETBALL

bounds and three steals. Bonney finished the game with four assists, four rebounds and three steals. Long and Bonney were the leading assist men on a night in which there were a lot of them for St. Helens. The Lions recorded assists on 18 of their 19 field goals. Hunter added five rebounds. Bonney, Galvin, and Long each finished with at least a dozen points against Sherwood. The Bowmen, however, used an aggressive half-court trap in the second half to turn a 2-point halftime lead into a 15-point victory win. Bonney ended up with a team-high 14 points and seven rebounds. Long and Galvin each scored 12 and Long added four assists. Junior Corey West’s energy off the bench sparked St. Helens in the first half. West

knocked down three field goals in the first half and finished the game with 7 points, four rebounds and a blocked shot. All of that wasn’t enough for St. Helens to get past Sherwood’s depth. Eight Bowmen scored 5 or more points in the contest. St. Helens played host to the Milwaukie Mustangs (6-5, 2-0) on Jan. 15.

Central 62, Scappoose 29

Injuries hinder the Indians BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

SCAPPOOSE — The Central Panthers (9-4) seemed to get stronger and stronger as the game went on Jan. 11, and the Scappoose Indians (2-9) were stuck simply trying to keep their players on the floor. Two Indian starters went down with injuries in the first half. Then their leading scorer in the game was hurt in the second half. Add into the mix another key player getting injured earlier in the week at practice and Scappoose was without four key players by the end of a 62-29 loss to Central. “We’re right in that game until everyone goes down. When your best player and your point guard goes out, it’s hard to stay with it,” said Scappoose coach Kevin Buse. Senior point guard Kendall Keierleber left the game in the first quarter when she suffered a concussion. Junior Brittany Catlow suffered a knee injury in the second quarter, sending her to the bench. Buse said he thinks both will be out of the lineup for a week or two. If that’s the case, the Indians will be without a couple of key offensive weapons for their Cowapa League opener. “Brittany does a really good job of passing in the zone, attacking in the zone. She just makes everybody better,” Buse said. Scappoose tied the game at the end of the first quarter on a 4-point play from junior Lacey Updike. Updike was the team’s best offensive threat all night, finishing with a team-high 15 points. But she too was forced to leave the game after taking a

blow to the mouth in the second half. “Lacey may have a couple stitches in the mouth,” Buse said. The Indians entered the game without senior guard Cassidy Hoglund, who suffered a high ankle sprain in practice. “That’s four players with significant varsity minutes that aren’t playing right now. It’s gonna be tough but the girls are fighting,” Buse said. The coach said he was pleased with the progress his team made at breaking Central’s full-court pressure. “We’re just learning.

We’re really understanding the whole team game. It’s coming together. If we put a full game together I think we can beat anybody,” Buse said. “We went right at ’em, came out of the gate – it was good.” Scappoose opened league on Jan. 15 with a trip to Tillamook (2-8).

11 points. Sophomore Michelle Sass had a team-high 16 points. Harcourt finished with 7. The win was a nice pick-up from the earlier loss to Liberty, when St. Helens was outscored 16-5 in the fourth quarter. “We kind of redeemed ourselves from Tuesday night,” McKinney said. Against Liberty, St. Helens found itself leading after three quarters, 37-35.

Liberty quickly swung the game’s momentum in the final period. A jumper from junior Brittney Bartolomucci brought the Lions to within 5 points midway through the quarter, but St. Helens never got closer than that. Sass again led the team in scoring, this time with 15 points. Bartolomucci and Ross scored 9 apiece. St. Helens played at seventh-ranked Milwaukie (9-2, 2-0) on Jan. 15. The Lions host
