Changes coming down the road Budget woes could mean changes for Columbia County Rider passengers BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

For the hundreds of passengers using the county’s only public transit system, changes proposed by the agency’s transit advisory committee could have an impact. The proposed changes are the result of the county’s adherence to state requirements that call for all county agencies to have a reserve fund, said Columbia County Commissioner Henry Heimuller. “By state budgeting law, all county, state – everybody – is supposed to have a certain percentage of their budget in reserve. Currently, we only have

two departments that don’t have adequate reserves, transit being one,” said Heimuller during a Jan. 28 committee meeting. Heimuller said the commissioners charged the county’s finance director two years ago with the task to make sure the every fund has 2 ½ months of reserves set aside. “If we don’t get tax dollars on time, then the general fund doesn’t have to carry any individual department,” said Heimuller. Over the past several months, the advisory committee began looking at four different options that would allow them to set aside funds to meet the required reserve amount over a period of three years.

“We were hoping for funding from the county in certain areas to help with administrative expense. After conferring with the county, it made the most sense not to plan on any money from the county in this go around,” said Joe Burks, advisory committee member and branch manager for Wauna Federal Credit Union. “We will still ask and we will still hope.” When considering the reductions, the advisory committee looked at available funding levels, staffing needs and estimated revenues and expenses for the last six months of 2012, along with fiscal years 2013-14 and 2014-15. ­­­­ See RIDER, Page A3

United Way still working on goal Columbia Pacific

refinery changing hands again

BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

United Way of Columbia County is still fundraising for much needed monies to help support programs vital to the community. To date, the local United Way has raised just over 66 percent of its goal. “We have a long way to go, but I know we can do it,” said Campaign Chair Chris Kaleta “The people of Columbia County have shown their generosity on countless occasions and I don’t think this time will be any different.” Donations and pledges to the Community Impact Fund allow volunteers the most freedom to use funds where the needs are greatest. However, donations and pledges can be designated to a specific not-for-profit. Focus areas currently are children and youth; emergency and basic needs; seniors, disabilities and special needs; Catalyst Campaign (to help rebuild Vernonia School); and Stuff the Bus (purchase school supplies for Columbia County). The agency got a boost recently with an unexpected donation. “Employees of Boise, who will soon be without a job, have generously donated back to the community via United Way and Columbia

Pacific Food Bank,” said Boise representative Tracie Murray. Much of those monies donated came through the “Santa Fund,” established at the mill in the 1970s, and through raffles, chili feeds and other events. “In addition to the Santa Fund account, employees have purchased surplus equipment and computers. Money raised through those purchases is also being donated to the United Way,” said Murray.

In total, the employees donated $8,286 to United Way and another $3,444 to the food bank. UWCC is preparing to begin its 2012–13 allocation process, in which the volunteer board of directors determine what programs will receive additional funding from UWCC over and above the designations received directly from donor gifts. Donations made prior to Feb. 28 will be included in this process.

United Way of Columbia County’s mission is “to improve the organized capacity of people to care for one another” by uniting the resources of the community to identify and address the most pressing human needs.

CLATSKANIE – Columbia Pacific Bio-Refinery is getting new owners. Global Partners LP announced on Jan. 28 that it has signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the membership interests in the crude oil and ethanol plant from its current owner, Cascade Kelly Holdings LLC. The price tag for the plant is estimated at $95 million. According to Global Partners, the sale includes a rail transloading facility serviced by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, 200,000 barrels of storage capacity, a deep-water marine terminal, a 1,200-foot dock and the largest ethanol plant on the West Coast. The Columbia Pacific refinery sits on land leased from the Port of St. Helens under a long-term agreement. This isn’t the first time the Clatskanie facility has changed hands. Originally owned by Cascade Grain, which went bankrupt in 2009, it was purchased by Cascade Kelly Holding in 2009 for $15 million. Since then, Kelly has spent millions to make it a usable facility with the intent of

County unemployment rates continues to decline – for now BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

New numbers released by the Oregon Employment Department show that despite the recent loss of jobs at Boise Inc., unemployment rates for Columbia County have continued to decline over the past year. In January 2012, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for the county was 9.6 percent. Columbia County finished out the year with a rate of 9.0 percent in December. Although only slightly changed from the 9.1 percent recorded for September, October and November, the downward trend over the past 12 months has mirrored similar declines for the state. Oregon’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for December was 8.4 percent, which is unchanged from November, but still slightly better than October’s unemployment rate of 8.6 percent. The state began 2012 with a seasonally adjusted rate of 8.8 percent. Over the year, that number continued to decline slowly each month. However, workforce analyst Shawna Sykes, from Worksource Oregon, cautions unemployment

gains seen in Columbia County will likely take a hit in the first quarter of 2012 as the Boise layoffs rollout in January and February. “Remember, the numbers are delayed... the Boise layoffs didn’t happen until the end of December,” said Sykes. “Even though they announced it, we won’t start to see those numbers until January.” Just how much of an impact the Boise layoffs will have on the county’s unemployment rate remains to be seen. Columbia County also saw increases in the total number of nonfarm jobs in 2012. Preliminary estimates from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show nonfarm payroll employment in Columbia County increased from 9,450 jobs in January 2012 to 9,800 jogs in December of that same year; an increase of about 4 percent. Most of the increase in jobs from 2012 came from the private sector. The BLS estimates construction jobs to have increased by 50; manufacturing is up by 80; trade, transportation and utilities is up by 130; and leisure and hospitality is up by 60. In comparison, government

sector jobs for most of Columbia County remained nearly unchanged, with state and local government (excluding educational services) seeing slight declines in its numbers. When compared to Oregon’s overall job numbers change as a percent, Columbia County actually fared slightly better than the state. Oregon jobs increased from 1.624 million jobs in January 2012 to 1.639 million by jobs in December of the same year, an increase of about 15,400 jobs (an increase of just under 1 percent). Despite the fact that Columbia County continues to have an unemployment rate higher than those of the state, national or neighboring counties, many workers are faring better than expected. Data from the United States Census bureau shows that of the three counties in Worksource Oregon’s Northwest region – which includes Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook Counties – Columbia County has the highest number of households earning more than $100,000, with a median income of just over $54,000. For more information about local, state and national unemployment data, go to QualityInfo.org.

producing of approximately 110 million gallons of ethanol each year. During an October 2011 interview with The Chronicle, Plant Manager Doug Lenz said the ethanol produced by the plant was a fuel-grade ethanal made through a fermentation process using starch extracted from corn. Along with producing ethanol, the plant also produced spent grains, a product made from corn that is high in protein. The company strives to first support the local economy and sell the spent grains to local farmers. ­­­­ See REFINERY, Page A3

But like its Cascade Grain predecessor, Kelly also ran into trouble turning the facility into a profitable operation. Although the plant was initially scheduled to open in January 2012, there were repeated delays – first to late February and then to an undermined date in the fall – it finally began shipping crude oil and ethanol in November 2012. Global Partners doesn’t seem to be put off by its history though. “This transaction capitalizes on our advantaged logistics and enables Global to supply cost-competitive crude and ethanol to refiners and customers on the West Coast,” said Eric Slifka, Global’s president and chief executive officer. “From our origination hub in the Bakken region of North Dakota, we will now have destination assets on both coasts. The Oregon site is linked via BNSF to the Basin Transload facility in Beulah, North Dakota while our Albany, NY terminal is connected via single line haul on Canadian Pacific to the Basin Transload location in Columbus, North Dakota. This facility also creates a link between the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and Pacific refiners. With the pending closing of our Basin Transload acquisition this quarter, these new assets increase our capability to transport crude

from the U.S. and Canadian mid-continent and extend our virtual pipeline to the West.” Slifka also said limited pipeline access in specific regions of the West Coast, the additional transloading facility will provide comparable service to the Northeast. “As we have demonstrated to those customers, we believe that we can apply our rail and marine expertise to meet the demand for crude and ethanol on the West Coast,” said Slifka. “... This facility represents an opportunity for Global to drive additional product volumes and enhance margins.” Global’s purchase of Cascade Kelly Holdings, which has been approved by its board of directors, Global is subject to customary regulatory approvals and various other customary commercial closing conditions. The purchase is expected to be completed by the end of the current quarter. Based in Waltham, Mass., Global owns, controls or has access to one of the largest terminal networks of refined petroleum products and renewable fuels in the Northeast. It is also one of the largest wholesale distributors of gasoline (including blendstocks such as ethanol and naphtha), distillates (such as home heating oil, diesel and kerosene), residual oil and renewable fuels to wholesalers, retailers and commercial customers in the New England states and New York.

Elks Teen of the month St. Helens High School has announced that Chelsee Rennie has been selected as the Elks Teen of the month for December. Rennie is described as a great young adult who is a very caring and friendly person with a positive outlook on life and the possibilities found in every situation, as well as someone who works very hard academically to do her best. St. Helens High teacher Keith Meeuswen said Rennie was very surprised and excited that she had been selected as the Elks Teen.

“Chelsee is just that type of young person, one who is humble and appreciative of what comes her way,” he said. Renine participated in soccer and track and field throughout her high school years and this year decided to join the Mock Trial team. As an athlete, Rennie was a hard worker and very determined, traits that serve her well in the classroom. As a member of the Mock Trial team, Rennie was a quick learner and added great insight in helping the team prepare for the trial.

She plans to attend Portland State University or University of Oregon next year to major in architecture and minor in interior design and business. According to Rennie, her best quality is how outgoing she is. She says she likes to talk to a lot of different people and try and make them feel welcome, especially in class discussions where she tries to help others find their voice and express their opinions. Soccer is Rennie’s major hobby but when not at school, work, working out,

Letters Keep it clean While walking on 18th Street on Monday, Jan. 21, several teens and three adults approached me. They were on litter patrol. Thanks to them for helping to keep our city clean. Maybe other groups will follow their endeavor. What an awesome job and so appreciated. Marla Lapping, St. Helens 2nd Amendment Literal interpretation of the Second Amendment (according to Judge Napolitano, Fox News contributor), states that it is the shortest and most clearly written of all of the amendments. That being said, it is my view that any and all laws on the books or being contemplated by the lawmakers, or “Executive Orders,” restricting private ownership and “bearing” of firearms is unconstitutional. I do not believe that “things” harm people. Perpetrators/criminals hurt people. If legislators/executive branch folks were consistent in their arguments against “things which kill/harm people,” they would have banned automobiles, “blunt instruments,” knives, hammers, rocks, etc., years ago. Instead, they made murder a criminal offense, choosing to go after the misuse of all of these “inanimate objects,” rather than the instruments themselves. I urge our legislators at all levels of government

to consider this in their deliberation about school security, mental health issues and try to solve the problem. Not ban the means by which these terrible and horrific acts (Sandy Hook School shootings), are committed. There are 300-million plus firearms, with thousands more being sold each day are not the problem. Troubled young men, delusional and with deep psychotic problems are the problem; not the means by which they commit their cruel acts of violence. Tom Klingbell, Warren Speak up There was a letter in the last Chronicle by a Mr. Parker representing a construction group in Portland telling readers he had the true facts concerning the coal transport projects in this area and that people who oppose these projects are misinformed. Mr. Parker listed three socalled facts. 1. That if the N/W doesn’t ship it to Asia, it will ship out somewhere else. His suggestion of the Gulf States would not be cost effective. Asia, especially China, has a terrible pollution problem, much of it from the burning of coal and they are starting to back off from its usage. 2. There are no new technologies that can eliminate coal dust from the transporting process. The train cars and barges cannot be covered because Powder River coal

is especially combustible. Chemical spraying on top may help for the first part of a trip, but will not last long. This coal is powdery to begin with and falls through the railcars onto the tracks. One local person went to the tracks on the Washington side of the Columbia where there have been coal trains and scooped up 10 pounds of dust in 15 minutes. Imagine all that carcinogenic dust along our train track going through our communities and past our homes and schools. 3. Lastly, there will not be thousands of jobs. There will only be a handful of permanent jobs at Port Westward. Instead, our health, safety, and property values will be negatively affected. Learn more and speak up before it is too late. Rachel Bernstein, St. Helens The band plays on The St. Helens Band Patrons would like to extend a very big thank you to all the members of the community that attended our Big Band Benefit Concert featuring the St. Helens High School Jazz Band and the Portland Providence Stage Band. This concert supports the Tom Brumbaugh Memorial Scholarship Program, which awards a $1,000 scholarship each year to a graduating band student. We own a huge thanks to the Portland Providence Stage Band for 31 years of support for this event and

school music programs. Thank you also to Wes Naish for being the chairman of this event and all his dedication to the program, Lyman Louis for providing the sound equipment for this event – the bands sounded

great, Darin and Tiffany Smith and the staff at the Dockside for the amazing food and continued support, and to Noelle Freshner for working tirelessly to mentor and direct all our band students.

Thank you again to our community for supporting all the band programs in the district and these amazing and talented students. Nicolle Prehn, St. Helens

Guest Editorial

Changes coming Competition and collaboration to The Chronicle Competition is not a four-letter word, contrary to the common mindset in St. Helens. From a macroeconomic view, competition is purely beneficial, encouraging innovation, a variety of options for the consumer, and lower prices; it is, after all, the foundation of our country and economy. Despite these positives, some small businesses in St. Helens believe it’s a death sentence. I’ve heard several horror stories about competing businesses throughout the few short months I’ve been here: one business owner, worried about a competitor, called the city because he (wrongly) suspected his competitor of a minor permit violation; another

pulled out of a community event last minute so they could sell their own products just outside of the event site; others blatantly lie about their competitor’s service. This is a regresMelissa Serfin sive approach to St. Helens Economic building business Development Corp. and improving our economy. A bitter and cutthroat attitude does not stop customers from choosing your competitor over your business; if anything, it makes customers think twice about

supporting such a “poor sport.” You know what attracts tourists and residents (i.e. customers)? A wide variety of stores, shops, services, and products to choose from. More businesses mean a more appealing place to live and visit. Consumers want a wide variety of choices, and no one wants to spend time in a town with just one restaurant or coffee shop. Communities all over the country are realizing that rivalries don’t increase sales. Their businesses understand that their efforts are better spent developing supportive projects and working together to promote their industry or neighborhood. They’re

Food for Thought ‘I’m on food stamps! (*SNAP* *SNAP* *SNAP*)’ People get all weird when you tell them you’re on food stamps. I told my friends and family back east and there was often a pause and a concerned, “Val…, you doing ok?” I could almost see the change in the look from the cashiers in the grocery store when I’d swipe my card. I don’t “look like” a person who’s on food stamps, whatever that means. What that person “looks like” I can assume. They’re the same person who “looks like” they go to the food bank or shops at thrift stores, not because it’s cool, but because they have to. I’m guilty of this, too. There are plenty of times when I see folks show up to the food bank, who I think are coming to make a donation,

and then PSYCH! they’re going to the pantry to get a box of emergency food instead. It affirms the fact that you can’t judge a person by their appearance. There is a huge stigma about getValerie Walker ting institutional Columbia Pacific help. Sure, people Food Bank abuse the system but don’t let a few bad apples ruin the whole barrel. I’m as prideful as the next person. Initially I tried to swipe my EBT (Elec-

tronic Benefits Transfer) card as fast as I could while in line so the person behind couldn’t see and subsequently judge me for 1: sucking off the government teat; 2: appear to not be able to take care of myself; 3: judge what I’m buying with their hard earned tax money (I have a candy bar in my basket = look of disgust. I have organic broccoli = a “how dare you”eyebrow raise). There was a wash of feelings like shame, anger and embarrassment that happened all at once at the checkout counter. I felt these things despite knowing what I know about SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance ­­­­ See FOOD, Page A6

The way we all receive our news is rapidly changing, and The Chronicle is changing as well. We are meeting our readers in new places and through new methods. We’ve expanded our offerings at thechronicleonline.com to give you the news, more of it and as it happens… not just on Wednesday mornings. We are active on Facebook, where more than 1,000 people now get breaking news alerts and share their thoughts with the community. We’re also on other social media platforms, such as Twitter and are adding more components, like audio, video and graphics, to our stories and website all the time. We’re offering more information than ever in the limitless digital landscape. We’ve also had to change some of the ways we do business. We recently instituted a paywall on our website, asking readers to pay for access to our in-depth and original reporting while still providing breaking news, sports and entertainment content to anyone who visits our site. It’s been awhile since The Chronicle last made a modest increase to its subscription and sales rates. But as costs to produce the newspaper continue to increase, we are making a change there as well. Effective Feb. 1, The

Chronicle will increase the price of the newspaper. Our in-the- rack price will increase from 75 cents to $1. Also effective Feb. 1, the in-county subscription price for newspaper delivery will increase to $28.99 annually. Out-of-county annual subscriptions will increase to $44.99. Seniors will be able to receive a $3 discount. We’re also offering a new pay-by-the-month option. For $3.99 a month you can have access to all of our online content, and have the print newspaper delivered to you anywhere in the U.S. You can sign up online with a credit card, which will be automatically billed monthly until you decide to cancel. Learn more at thechronicleonline.com/e_editions/ current_e_edition/. There’s one more change coming though. We are moving. By the end of February we will have moved from our decades-long location on 15th Street (just behind the post office) to our new location at 1805 Columbia Blvd., just across from Semlings Pharmacy. Thank you for partnering with us as we evolve along with the newspaper industry. We are confident that these changes will allow us to continue to serve as the community’s primary news and information source for many years to come.

Program, a.k.a food stamps) and why I’m on them. It was stressful to be like that so I decided to embrace them instead of being embarrassed by them. Now, I go to stores and I linger with the card in my hand, I do a little twirl with it between my fingers, ask the cashier if they accept THIS! card *swissssh* (that’s the sound of me moving the card so fast through the air that it creates a slight breeze) and then look to my side, make eye contact with the person behind me and give a little air kiss, I swipe my card like I mean it, and then give a slow wink and smile as I walk away bags in hand. Money, Money, Money Why do I do this? What changed? It’s all about the Benjamins coming to Columbia County, baby!! Before, I was like many people in thinking I was taking precious tax dollars away from important things. However, while the SNAP benefits come from taxes, these are dollars that are already set aside to aide those who are eligible - whether they take advantage of them or not. That means if you qualify and don’t sign up, the money just sits there all bored with no place to go. And that means that Columbia County doesn’t get it either.

at a local store I am bringing money into the local economy. I like to think of it as me deciding where the government directly spends its money. According to “Partners for a Hunger-free Oregon” in 2009 Columbia County had 7,569 people receiving SNAP benefits who brought $10.9 million federal dollars into the county through people spending their SNAP dollars in stores located in the community. There were still 3,549 individuals who were eligible to receive SNAP benefits but weren’t signed up. If everyone in 2009 who was eligible had signed up for SNAP we could have counted an additional $2.7 million dollars stimulating the local economy. Given the economic climate over the years since 2009 it is probably safe to assume that the numbers have grown. If we really wanted to make our dollars pack a punch we could spend them in independently-owned, local stores who hire neighbors and buy supplies locally if they want (I get chills when I think about it). So, to those who are on hard times feeling bad about needing some help, stand tall! You Sir, you Madame are helping your community when you spend your benefit dollars locally. And if you’re eligible but not receiving any due to pride, get over yourself and sign up. And to those who are being all judgeyjudgey; stop it, and instead shake the hand of one of my fellow SNAP-pers for bringing in millions of dollars into the county.

From PAGE A6 recognizing the potential of collaborative marketing and the importance of groups that bring businesses together, such as SHEDCO. The collaborative approach goes beyond just businesses; it is actually most effective as a cross-sector cooperative effort. This method is called collective impact, but I won’t get too technical on you. There’s a whole department dedicated to the topic at Portland State University, and the topic is regularly referenced (and praised) in various publications and academic journals, including the Harvard Business Review and Stanford Social Innovation Review. The potential for a collaborative approach, particularly across sectors, is huge. To employ collective impact, communities work together to avoid overlapping services, delegate tasks, and share resources. They bring together organizations, non-profits, community groups, local government, and businesses to plan events, promote their town, and communicate their ideas and projects. It’s always more effective and efficient to work as a team, rather than individually. Unfortunately, I’ve lost count of how many community groups and businesses

won’t work with another because of a petty grudge. It’s unhealthy, ineffective, and it impedes economic development. It also discourages others from working with them in the future. Most importantly, it prevents their organizations from reaching their full potential, and our community loses out. We need to learn how to work together and get over histories of strained relationships. It’s not worth the effort to focus on competing with other businesses or resenting other community groups, especially in a small town. We need to capitalize on our resources and support one another. There are countless other cities more successful than St. Helens because of their ability to collaborate, and we need to catch up. Instead of lamenting a new store moving into town, realize that this is a step in the right direction. If they’re successful, they’ll pull even more potential customers into St. Helens. Embrace new businesses, encourage cooperation, and applaud success. These mean progress and economic growth not just for one business, but for our community. Competition breeds distrust, fear, and dysfunction, while collaboration builds capacity and fosters community, goodwill, and support. Which would you rather choose?

The corridor encompasses three separate fish bearing streams. Because of this, ODOT is working closely with the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to enhance stream habitat.

Narrow victories lead to St. Helens win BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

PORTLAND — In a meet that came down to four events decided by less than a second, the St. Helens Lions were able to get past the Parkrose Broncos in a boys dual swimming meet on Jan. 24. St. Helens won three of those four close events to help earn a 9376 victory. “We had some great races and our team won the majority of them. It was pretty exciting,” said St. Helens coach

Bill Rash. The Lion girls had an easier time, winning nine of 11 events for a 105-64 win. Senior Devon Brady willed himself to two slim victories for the boys. He won the 200 freestyle by .66 seconds. He later won the 100-yard freestyle by twohundredths of a second over a different Parkrose swimmer, finishing in 53.92 seconds. Lion junior Andrew Collson edged a Bronco by .17 seconds in the 50-yard freestyle, finishing in 23.79 seconds.

Freshman Cameron Lein had the most comfortable individual win for St. Helens. He beat out teammate Dillon Swatski by four seconds in the 100 backstroke. The Lion boys also won the 200 medley relay. “David Sumsion and Jonathan Prevish did some lifetime best swims,” Rash said. Sumsion was on the wrong end of the Lions’ lone one-second loss. He swam the breaststroke in 1:16.42, .32 seconds out of first. Prevish also came very

Four Lion girls combined to win seven individual events and St. Helens finished first in the 200 medley

relay and the 400 freestyle relay. Senior Emily Spears took first in both the 200- and 100yard freestyle races. Sophomore Brook Hopkins won the individual medley and the backstroke. Junior Patience Marshall was first in the butterfly and the 500 freestyle. Sophomore Jackie Prevish took first in the 100 breaststroke. In addition to the wins, the Lions took the top two spots in the IM and went 1-2-3 in the breaststroke. Rash said a few other

swimmers had some of their best outings of the season against Parkrose. “Lauren Chambers, Amy Sumsion and Hannah Spears all swam great. They have improved so much this year,” Rash said. Sumsion was third in the breaststroke and fifth in the IM; Chambers took fourth in the 50 free and fifth in the 100 free; and Spears was third in the 500 freestyle. St. Helens has its final home meet of the season at 4 p.m. on Jan. 31 against the Sherwood Bowmen.

Long has big week for Lions Indians are in third The Scappoose Indians (4-11, 22) proved they’re right in the thick of the Cowapa League race. The Indians nearly took down the secondplace Seaside Seagulls (14-4, 3-1) on Jan. 22, then beat the Yamhill-Carlton Tigers (3-14, 1-4) 46-40 on Jan. 25 to even their record in league and take sole possession of third place. In doing so, Scappoose continued an odd trend early in the conference season: Scappoose is 2-0 on the road and 0-2 at home. The Tribe will try to reverse that trend this week with a pair of home games. Scappoose played Astoria (512, 1-3) on Jan. 29 and hosts Tillamook (3-11, 1-3) at 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 1.

BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Tanner Long had two big games last week, leading the St. Helens Lions (8-8, 2-4) to a 60-41 win over the visiting Putnam Kingsmen (2-12, 2-4) on Jan. 22 and nearly instigating a come-from-behind road win over the sixth-ranked Sandy Pioneers (13-3, 6-0) on Jan. 25. Back-to-back 3-pointers from Long sparked an 11-0 Lion run early in the third against Putnam and St. Helens never looked back. Before that, the game was tied 23-23. Six of the Lions’ 11 field goals in the third period were from beyond the 3-point line as the team outscored the visiting Kingsmen 2911 in the quarter. In addition to Long’s two treys, senior Jared Bonney had two, senior Cody Galvin made one and junior Gage Bumgardner knocked one down. Long kept the team afloat in the second quarter, when he scored 11 of the team’s 13 points in the period. He finished with a game-high 18 points. The junior point guard also dished out five assists, swiped four steals and had three rebounds. Galvin also got in on the playmaking, finishing with 9 points and five assists on several heads-up passes. Senior post Nathan Hunter came close to a double-double with 9 points and nine rebounds. Bonney scored 10 points. A few nights later, a lull in the middle of the game proved costly for St. Helens. The Pioneers stayed unbeaten in league with a 50-44 win over the visiting Lions.

Seaside snuck out of Scappoose with a 38-35 last week. Junior Abby Kessi led Scappoose with 9 points. Senior Kendall Keierleber scored 8, and junior Jenny Vardanega had 7. “Jenny Vardanega had a great game,” said Scappoose coach Kevin Buse. “We’re getting better. I still believe we’re one of the top three teams in the league,” Buse said after the Seaside game. “They’re playing hard and that’s all you can ask for as a coach.” No details were available at press time about the Tribe’s win over the Tigers. – Kyle Boggs

St. Helens junior Nicole Harcourt drives to the basket against Sandy on Jan. 25.

St. Helens splits games The St. Helens Lions (8-8, 2-4) split a pair of Northwest Oregon Conference games last week. The Lions won on the road against the Rex Putnam Kingsmen (4-11, 2-4) 55-49 on Jan. 22. St. Helens then lost a 54-46 home game to the Sandy Pioneers (312, 1-5) on Jan. 25. St. Helens used a big second half and clutch free-throw shooting in the fourth quarter to pull away from Putnam. The Lions trailed the Kingsmen by three at halftime. Then sophomore Rianne Tupper went off. Tupper scored 17 points in the second half. She finished the game with four 3-pointers and a game-high 22 points. Tupper, senior Jillian Ross and sophomore Michelle Sass also knocked down several clutch free throws in the fourth quarter. Those three combined to make 9-of-10 attempts in the final period. Ross finished the game with 15 points. She was 8-for-8 at the freethrow line for the game.

Against the Pioneers, the Lions got out to a slow start. St. Helens was hesitant to attack the basket in the first three quarters, which helped Sandy take an 11-point into the fourth quarter. The Lions became more aggressive getting to the rim in the fourth quarter. It looked like they had the Pioneer lead trimmed to 4 points with about two minutes to play, but a 3point attempt from Ross went halfway down before bouncing back out. Ross finished with 8 points and four steals. Sass led the team with 13 points, all of them coming in the second half. Both of St. Helens’ games this week are on the road. The Lions played at Liberty High School (7-9, 51) on Jan. 29 and then go to Parkrose High School (6-8, 3-3) on Feb. 1. Game time is set for 7:15 p.m. To see box scores and additional photos from last week’s games, visit thechronicleonline.com. – Kyle Boggs

Once a desperation 3-point attempt at the buzzer from the Seaside Seagulls (8-10, 1-3) bounced off the back of the rim, the Scappoose Indians (8-9, 3-1) were able to breathe a collective sigh of relief on Jan. 22. The miss gave Scappoose a 43-40 win in a game in which the Indians trailed by 6 points with just under five minutes to go. Scappoose rallied late again against the Yamhill-Carlton Tigers (9-7, 4-0) on Jan. 25, but was unable to take a victory after tying the game in the fourth quarter. Y-C won, 6851. Senior Zach Smith led the Indians with 13 points against the Seagulls, including the final three of the game on a free throw and lay-in. He also had six rebounds and five assists. Senior Chris Tinning scored 12 points, had four rebounds and four steals. Senior Paul Revis ended the game with 8 points, four rebounds and three steals. Against Y-C, Smith scored 19 points and Tinning had 10. The Indians were down 13 at halftime before tying the game early in the fourth quarter. “We played well at times and out of control at other times,” said Scappoose coach Rahim Tufts. “We came back and tied it at the beginning of the fourth, but they ended up making more plays than us to win the game. They are playing extremely well and with a lot of confidence. With that, we still had chances to win, but came up short.” Scappoose had a tough time dialing in its shots from the perimeter. The Indians shot .500 on 2-point field goals, but shot .174 (4-for-23) on 3-point attempts. “I was proud of how our guys battled and came back and competed

the entire game,” Tufts said. “We just need to make shots.” There was a large discrepancy in free-throw attempts. Scappoose made 11-of-14 attempts in the game; Y-C was 19-for-36. Seventeen of the Tigers’ attempts came in the fourth quarter as the Indians fouled to try getting back into the game. The Indians closed out the first half of the Cowapa League season on Jan. 29 with a home game against the 10th-ranked Astoria Fishermen (14-4, 3-1). Scappoose hosts Tillamook (411, 1-3) at 7 p.m. on Feb. 1. To see more on last week’s games, visit thechronicleonline.com. – Kyle Boggs

is all right to remove the seedlings. Dig smaller trees that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been growing in deep shade. Trees should come from an elevation similar to the one in which they will be grown. It is best not to dig trees on a cold day or from frozen ground. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause traffic problems or leave a mess. Protect your seedlings from deer by either deer protecting tubes or by a repellent spray like Deer Awayâ&#x201E;˘. Protect from field mice girdling by wrapping the base of them stem with aluminum foil. Finally, trees should be transplanted as soon as possible after digging or purchasing them. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, place them in a garden bed to grow one more year and transplant the following winter. Forest tree planting should be complete by the end of March.

Planting forests, big or small (and Small Woodlands Assn. tree sale) Many landowners in Columbia County have a mix of forest and open ground. Often, there are small areas that need to be reforested. There are several ways to acquire the appropriate trees. You can order them from any of several nurseries. Generally, you have to order in bundles of 50-100 seedlings. Call us for contact information for these nurseries. The Columbia County Small Woodlands Association has an annual tree sale in St. Helens. You can purchase a variety of trees in very small quantities. The sale this year will be on March 9 at the Lawrence Oil parking lot in St. Helens from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. They sell both forest tree seedlings, some native shrubs, and some ornamental tree seedlings. Get there early for the best selection. It is possible to transplant wild seedlings. Sometimes you can find them on a road rightof-way. It is always a good idea to contact the County Road Department to see that it

Rose pruning Roses, along with much of the rest of the woody landscape, need attention this month. The first cut on a rose is to remove dead wood. If a rose has been limping along for Chip Bubl years, prune at the roots and plant something better. Rose rejuvenation usually involves tough love. A small cane cannot produce a bigger one. In most cases, it is wise to remove all canes smaller than your little finger. Generally four wellspaced canes are left but you may only have two that are suitable to build the rejuvenated rose on. Dip your pruning shears in a disinfectant solution between each rose. Fertilize in the spring and control black spot to give the plant the leaves to build a new life.

Indians Tribe rolls through league go after 4th title in a row BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

TILLAMOOK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In their final tune-up before the Cowapa League Championship Meet, several Scappoose High School swimmers further improved their marks during a double dual meet at Tillamook High School on Jan. 24. The Indian girls beat the Rainier Columbians head to head, 108-46, for the Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone victory. Tillamookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls beat Scappoose 98-68. The Cheesemaker boys beat the Indians 110-48 and the Columbians won 115-44. Sophomore Stefany Alvarez had the top two finishes for the Indians. She won the 100-yard freestyle and took second in the 200-yard individual medley. Senior Marie Hannah had the next best finish for the Tribe girls, heading up a 2-3 finish in the 200 freestyle for SHS girls. Freshman Kayla Miller was third. Coach David Richmond said sophomore Baylee Maloney had a terrific meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of our standout performances this week came from Baylee Maloney, who worked hard this week and swam the 100 fly for the first time,â&#x20AC;? Richmond said. Maloney finished fourth in that event, one spot behind Hannah. The coach added that junior Lindsey Marquardt improved her time significantly in the 500-yard freestyle, as did senior Lucia Morud in the 100 free. Junior Sam Herscovitz topped the boys finishes. He was second in the 500-yard freestyle and third in the 100 backstroke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sam Herscovitz had a real solid meet, improving his time in his two individual events and broke 30 seconds in his backstroke split,â&#x20AC;? Richmond said. Seniors Keegan Carey and Gilberto Martinez finished third and fourth in the 50 free. This week Scappoose hosts the Cowapa League Championships, beginning at 4 p.m. on Feb. 1 at Eisenschmidt Pool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really looking for a large and hopefully loud crowd on Friday to push our girls and boys throughout the meet. Our girls are looking for their fourth league title in a row. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be tough, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for this team to reach that potential we talked about at the start of the season,â&#x20AC;? Richmond said. Richmond said the team has had three straight good meets and is hoping the Indians are peaking at the right time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for someone or a relay team to set the tone for us at the start of the meet to get us going early. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened three years in a row,â&#x20AC;? Richmond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get after it.â&#x20AC;?

After two blowout victories on Jan. 24, the Scappoose Indians head into their final Cowapa League dual match untested in conference competition. Scappoose beat Yamhill-Carlton 58-18 and topped Banks 66-8 in a double dual meet at Y-C. The Indians followed that with a trip to Hood River for the Elks Invitational on Jan. 26. Despite missing several wrestlers who were sick with the flu, the Indians finished seventh out of 17 schools and were the only 4A team in competition. Freshman Kurt Mode won the 106-pound bracket at the tournament.

while Apon and Taylor Walden both registered major decisions. Gadbois won a 5-0 decision. Banks forfeited six matches to Scappoose. In contested bouts, Foumal, Walden and Apon all recorded pins; Mode won by technical fall; Cody Erhardt won by major decision; and Logan Brooks won an 11-4 decision. Scappoose has its final dual meet of the season at 7 p.m. on Feb. 1. The Indians wrestle on the road against the Tillamook Cheesemakers. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kyle Boggs
