Candidates prep for elections BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

In our continuing coverage of local elections, we look at county commissioner candidates Wayne Mayo, who is running for PosiWayne Mayo tion No. 1, and current commissioner Tony Hyde, who is running for Position No. 3. Tony Hyde We asked each candidate four questions about the county’s economy, budget and their positions on the proposed coal export projects. For the full answers to all four questions and the candidate bios, go online to Q: If Columbia County experiences a shortfall for the next fiscal year's budget, what cuts or changes would you propose to balance the budget? Mayo: There’s no “if” about it. The shortfall is here. The reason? Diminishing property tax receipts, timber receipts, and a budget-busting 45 percent increase in PERS retirement liability starting in 10 weeks. I disagree with short-term solutions like last year’s decision to move $200,000 from county parks to the general fund. This left a gap-

100 jobs lost “with closing of Boise plant

SHARI PHIEL / The Chronicle

Boise Inc. announced on Oct. 16 it would shut down operations on its one remaining machine come Dec. 31.

BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — Last week’s announcement that Boise Inc. will permanently shut down its one remaining paper machine at the company’s St. Helens paper mill came as little surprise to some, a shock to others. But the impacts of the closing will be felt throughout the community. Shutting down the H2 machine will result in the loss of an estimated 105 jobs. Production on the machine will end Dec. 31. “This is a difficult but necessary decision to focus our efforts and resources on the products and machines elsewhere in our system that drive the financial performance and cash flow of our paper operations,” said Alexander Toeldte, president and chief executive officer of Boise Inc., in a statement. The closing of the plant comes nearly four years after the company laid off 300 mill workers in November of 2008, citing rising costs for wood fiber, energy and chemicals in its production as contributing factors. Boise shut down paper machines 1 and 4 at that time. “This is not good news by any stretch,” said Columbia County Commissioner Tony Hyde. The commissioners met with Boise executives on

Despite the dedication and hard work of our employees, we have concluded the machine cannot compete in the marketplace over the long-term. We thank all of our employees, customers, suppliers, and the community who have supported this operation over so many years.” Alexander Toeldte President and CEO, Boise Inc.

Oct. 16, the same day the announcement was made. “It seems that their perspective is that they are changing their product line. They have decided they are no longer going to be in the paper business. They’re going to put all their focus on cardboard.” Hyde said the value of the property, with its access to rail and a deep-water port, is not lost on Boise. “They have already committed to purposing that property as soon as possible. There is some ray of hope on the horizon,” Hyde said. Cascade Tissue Group will continue to operate a paper-making machine at Boise's St. Helens mill. “Despite the dedication and hard work of our employees, we have concluded the machine cannot compete in the marketplace over the

long-term. We thank all of our employees, customers, suppliers, and the community who have supported this operation over so many years. We will work closely with our customers and suppliers to ensure a smooth transition," Toeldte said. Eligible salaried employees will be offered severance packages and outplacement assistance. Negotiations will be scheduled with the Association of Western Pulp and Paper Workers Union (AWPPW) Local 1 to determine the effect for union employees. “We are going to be meeting with Boise, with their human resources department, to set up some orientation sessions. We’re ready to do that as soon as possible,” said Karin Miller, county manager for MTC

Works. “At that time, we will survey the employees and see what they would like. Are they interested in training funds, do they just want help with applications and resumes or getting registered in iMatch? Then we will design some services around those surveys.” Miller also said the agency will begin to look for funding to provide those services. “We’re going to be looking at going to the state and to the federal government for training dollars if there’s enough interest,” she said. In third quarter 2012, Boise recognized approximately $31 million of pretax costs related to ceasing operations at the mill. This includes approximately $7 million of employee-related and other costs, most of which it expects to pay in early 2013; approximately $10 million of cash costs for future site remediation, which the company expects to pay out over a longer term; and approximately $14 million in non-cash charges related primarily to the impairment of property, plant, and equipment. For many in the county, this latest closure only highlights the need to bring in new businesses and new jobs to Columbia County. “We’re always talking to people interested in moving out here to CoSee BOISE, Page A3

Tax roll has few surprises BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Property tax bills have begun appearing in homeowners’ mailboxes. This year’s tax roll saw an increase of just over $1 million. The total tax to be collected this year is $55.98 million as compared to $54.91 million for the 2011-12 tax year. The list of Columbia County’s top taxpayers saw few changes. While the majority of those on the county’s top 20 taxpayers list were also on last year’s top 20 list, there were a few changes. The top 20 taxpayers represent about $8.51 million. That’s up by about 2.5 percent from last year’s $8.28 million.

These 20 taxpayers also represent a total assessed value of $861 million. That’s compared to $927 million in real market values. Not on the list this year is Brix Maritime Company, Enerfin Resources, and the Qwest Corporation. These three companies represented about $360,000 in taxes. Three companies added to the top 20 list this year were Bascom Pacific, CenturyLink and Northwest Aggregates, representing about $477,000 in taxes. The county’s top five taxpayers are: Northwest Natural ($1.9 million); U.S. Gypsum ($1.26 million); Portland General Electric ($1.08 million); Armstrong World Industries ($521,000) and Longview Timberlands ($503,000).

Noticeably absent from that list of the top five is Boise White Paper, which recently announced it was closing its H2 mill and reducing more than 100 jobs come Dec. 31. Boise was in eighth place last year with $299,000 in taxes and in ninth place this year with $302,000 in taxes.

Head-on crash injures four

A head-on crash between a 1995 Ford F150 truck and a 1990 Mazda Protegé resulted in four people being injured.

Oregon State Police is continuing its investigation into a two-vehicle, head-on crash along U.S Highway 30 near Rainier on Oct. 20. The crash resulted in critical injuries to one person and injuries to four others, including two children. Around 10:30 p.m., a 1995 Ford F150 pickup driven by Nathan Edward Reeves, 37, of St. Helens, was southbound on Highway 30 near milepost 44 when he apparently attempted to pass another vehicle and collided head-on with a northbound 1990 Mazda Protegé driven by Jacquelyn Bouchard, 25, from Longview. Reeves, who was not using safety restraints, was transported to Oregon Health & Science University, where he is listed in critical condition. Bouchard and three of her four passengers were injured and transported to area hospitals. The injured three passengers are identified as right front passen-

ger Andrew B. Perry, 29, from Longview; Monica B. Perry, 7; and, Aahlyah Marie Perry, 6. Their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. The fourth passenger, a 2-year old girl in a child safety seat, was not injured. The two adults and two children were using safety restraints or in a child booster seat. The three children were in the rear seating positions. OSP troopers from the St. Helens and Astoria offices are continuing the investigation. Alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor on the part of driver Reeves. OSP was assisted at the scene by local fire personnel and officers from Columbia County Sheriff's Office, Rainier Police Department, Clatskanie Police Department, and Oregon Department of Transportation. Highway 30 was closed at the crash scene until 2 a.m.

ELECTION: focus on future of Columbia County National Honor Society inducts new members

From PAGE A1

ping hole in the parks budget. Long-term solutions must be the subject. If the current perfect storm of economic conditions teaches us anything, it’s that we can no longer build future budgets anticipating an economic model that no longer exists. Typically labor contract negotiations have led to the firing of the last hired and the reduction in service days. I want to stop laying off the last hired, reducing services, and deferring maintenance. There must be other longterm solutions. Perhaps developing Columbia County mining royalties similar to Alaska’s oil royalties could be discussed. A $5.20 increase in the depletion fee per truckload of gravel would net $800,000/year now and double that when the economy picks up. Development at Port Westward would be a genuine benefit to the county budget. Even more significantly, it would demonstrate a willingness to welcome industry back to the county. Hyde: We have already started to prepare for another tight budget year. Our strategy for creating a budget that can still deliver services is twofold. First, we are putting the bulk of the federal forest payment that we will be receiving in December into re-

serve for next year. Second, we must be vigilant to insure that no more cuts to Counties come from the next state legislative session. We must work diligently to find a solution to the federal forest issue that will resolve federal forest management, and return jobs and revenue to Columbia County. Fully funded, Columbia County would receive $2.4 million dollars in the SRS program. That alone would wipe out any budget shortfall for FY13-14. This will not be our first year of belt tightening and, certainly, it will not be our last. Like many family budgets in Columbia County right now, we simply will have to weather the economic downturn, while trying to provide the best service possible. There have been suggestions that we should raise taxes and fees. Again, understanding that the economic downturn is affecting us all, this is simply not an option worth considering. Long term, we must continue to increase the value of the county and find a way to reform PERS.

Q: Do you support either the Kinder Morgan or Ambre Energy coal export terminal proposed projects? Why? Mayo: Kinder Morgan isn’t yet convinced it will be profitable for them so this may be a lively discussion

about nothing. The Port of St. Helens has wisely put a tonnage charge on coal transported via rail which can be used to upgrade crossings, overpasses, glassed in overpasses for bikes, whatever the four effected towns agree they need. If Kinder Morgan rail decides on the Port of Astoria, we get nothing except traffic. Ambre Energy’s barging proposal is a much better fit; good jobs, financial benefits, and barges built by hires recruited at job fairs offered in Columbia County. If Taiwan, South Korea, and Singapore continue with current suppliers, the Pacific Ocean air and water sheds will grow increasingly polluted with dangerous trace minerals. They won’t stop importing coal. Powder River coal has far lower sulfur, arsenic and mercury (recently the WSJ reported that China was bringing a new coal electric plant on line one a week). The National Council on Compensation Insurance has set the rate on those who onload/offload coal at $4.98/$100 of payroll, 40 percent the $11.93/$100 paid by grain, gravel, or wheat handlers. These rates are followed by 48 states including Oregon. Should we outlaw grain, gravel, and wheat because it’s considered more dangerous to health by those who truly know?

Hyde: Coal. I have said from the beginning that I would have to see “five smiling mayors in tow” before I could even consider the proposal. By that I mean that coal trains would have to have broad community support across the county, and, frankly, I think that is unattainable. Our rail system is single tracked and, in its current condition, very close to capacity. We are working hard to create more jobs in Columbia County and even though the proposal would create jobs, I believe in the long run it would be short sighted. We shouldn’t mortgage our remaining capacity to move freight for our current and future for traded sector industries, not to mention our livability, for the sake of a few jobs now. As for the barge proposal, if they can meet Oregon’s high standards and prevail in the stringent federal permitting and regulatory process, then I could support it. Especially with the addition of 105 family wage jobs, support for local schools and more property tax revenue.

Food for thought: Conveniently National Food Day BY VALERIE WALKER For The Chronicle

The Chronicle welcomes our newest columnist, Valerie Walker, food systems coordinator at the Columbia Pacific Food Bank. Valerie will be providing insightful and essential information about the foods we eat, where they come from and what we should know about them. Right now I’m eating some “Flamin’ Hot Cheetos” and they’re delicious. Chester Cheeto is sliding across the picture with flames coming off the soles of his shoes, he’s holding a giant Cheeto, breathing fire and appears to be lovin’ it. I’m lovin’ them, too. They are everything I want them to be. Crunchy, savory, a little tangy and not hot at all, but they have a certain kick to them that makes me feverishly shove one after another into my mouth. I know I shouldn’t eat too many because they’re bad for me, but I’m hungry/bored and want to eat the whole “new bigger size” bag. As I try to restrain myself by rolling closed the bag (for the third time in 10 minutes) and lick my fingers I skip over the nutrition facts (I already know they’ll make me fat) and look at the block of text that is the ingredients list. I’m curious to see what foodstuffs I’m actually eating. The front of the bag describes the delectable morsels inside as “Cheese Flavored Snacks.” I understand the words “cheese” and “flavor” but the word “snack” is

where things get a little murky for me. A snack could be anything: A few carrots, a small sandwich, popcorn, a cup of pudding, a handful of grapes, a couple Valerie Walker bites off of last night’s pot roast sitting in the frig… what is a snack? It turns out that those crunchy caveman club-shaped “snacks” of fried goodness are made of “enriched corn” which is then followed by a parenthetical list of unpronounceable words. My eyes lock on the next word I can read, “vegetable oil.” Turns out vegetable oil is a cocktail of oils made of many veggies. I’m ok with that, though. Oil is oil, right? The next ingredient is my favorite: “Flamin’ Hot Seasoning.” I skip past all of this. Three-quarters of the ingredient list is filled with all sorts of colors (colors as ingredients?), science-y words and a plethora of dairy derived ingredients; all the way to the bottom of the square of innards that ends with “and salt.” I’m amused that this is the last, presumably least used, ingredient since salt was said about a dozen different ways before we got to “and salt.” I look at the words “natural flavor” and “sodium diacetate” that are mixed in and wonder what they mean. Which flavors? And natural versus what… unnatural? The fact

that it has been specified that there are natural flavors suggests that the rest are unnatural. How can food be unnatural? You mean to tell me that Cheetos don’t grow in uniform-weighted bags on trees that fall and litter the ground with individually sealed, portable, never-never spoil packages of tastiness? Can children not rake together fluffy, brightly colored piles of Cheetos? Well, if that’s not the case, where do Cheetos come from? October 24 is National Food Day and, conveniently for the debut of this column, today. It is a day set apart to challenge people to think about where their food comes from and what they’re putting into their bodies. There are a variety of events going on all over the county in celebration, even in our beloved St. Helens. Tonight at 5:15 p.m. at the St. Helens Public Library there will be a free showing of the movie “Fresh” which highlights some of the things we might not have considered before when shopping at the grocery store, but probably should. This is the first of more food-based columns meant to get you to think about food

and its many sides, as well as what is specifically happening here in Columbia County. You won’t get any tasty recipes from me because I don’t really like to cook all that much (read Grey and Trent’s column for that). But just because I don’t like to cook doesn’t mean food doesn’t affect me, my community or the world. I have spent the past year exploring role of food in the county with the help of Columbia Pacific Food Bank and Oregon Food Bank. I tried to piece together a picture of food in the county. In my quest I have met farmers, consumers, chefs, worked with folks from various public and private organizations, spoken with school officials, home gardeners and local emergency food sites alike. I have spent time perusing the local history books at the library and county historic society’s treasures and have been amazed at the rich agricultural history the area has and what is still quietly happening today all around the county. Check in with me from time to time and I’ll show you how food is more than just what you eat. Together we’ll explore how you can use food to make not only your community stronger, but you and your family too.

BOISE: facility has been looked at for biomass, bioenergy From PAGE A1 lumbia County,” said Kevin Owens, board member for the Columbia County Economic Team and general manager of Columbia River PUD. Owens said the facility has been looked at in the past by companies looking to implement biomass or bioenergy products. “They have a lot of adjacent property that people have looked at developing in response to RFPs that PGE or other utilities looking for land to develop,” Owens said. One impact that could affect residents throughout the St. Helens area is the company’s contribution to St. Helens’ water treatment costs. Boise petitioned – and received – a reduction to the company’s contribution rate in October of 2011. The rate adjustment was the result of an appeal filed by Boise after the St. Helens City Council voted to reduce




Annual SHEDCO town hall meeting Oct. 30 ST. HELENS – The St. Helens Economic Development Corporation will hold its annual town hall meeting at the St. Helens Best Western at 585 S. Columbia River Hwy., on Oct. 30 from 5–8 p.m. Everyone in the community is invited to come and enjoy some refreshments and participate in the program. SHEDCO will review goals identified at last year’s town hall meeting, the group’s accomplishments over the last 12 months, and work to identify the goals and priorities for the coming 12 months. SHEDCO invites the public to join them as they sort through the many needs of the community and work to identify new goals and projects that will help improve the city. For anyone interested in joining SHEDCO or who would just like to volunteer for projects, this is a great opportunity to get a firsthand look at what SHEDCO does and how.

the paper company's contribution from 67 percent to 60.5 percent. Boise had originally requested their contribution be reduced to just 54 percent. “The council set at a stepped down amount that split the difference between 67 percent and 56 percent,” said then-city manager Chad Olson. “Boise appealed that based upon actual loading that is going into the plant and the TAC's (technical advisory committee) recommendation.” Under the revised rate structure, Boise's rate was based on actual usage as long as the company's loading stayed above 56 percent. If the company’s usage dropped below 56 percent at any time during the next 12 months, Boise paid a minimum of 56 percent. Now that those 12 months are up and Boise’s usage of the city’s infrastructure will again decline, the company may ask for further reductions.

Voters should support 5-228 On Nov. 7, St. Helens residents will be asked to support an operating levy to fund police services within the city. Measure 5-228, named the Police Local Option Levy, asks voters to authorize a tax of $1.00 for every $1,000 of assessed property value. Revenue raised by the levy would fund day to day operations of the St. Helens Police Dept. Voters should support 5228. Since 2005, the number of sworn officers has dropped from 25 to 16. Response times to resident’s calls have increased from slightly over 3 minutes to nearly 30 minutes in some

cases. Investigative functions have been sharply curtailed and office hours reduced as administrative personnel have been cut. The police department’s ability to provide 24/7 protection for the community is in serious jeopardy. The lack of sufficient funding for the police department is symptomatic of a greater problem the city faces; declining tax revenues. Taxes from industries like Boise, which funded a major portion of the city’s operating budget, have evaporated as those businesses have closed up shop. City leaders have a serious problem with the budget that is

only going to get worse in coming years. Measure 5-228 won’t solve all the fiscal problems the city faces, but it will ensure one vital service, police protection, remains adequately funded. In the face of high unemployment and declining wages, voters are right to expect government to live within it’s means, but lack of this basic service makes the city less attractive to businesses, increases crime and lowers the standard of living for all of us. It’s a wise investment in our community.

There is no other way I can see for them to get anything done that they claim credit for. We need new blood to get our county moving again and that means two new commissioners in Wayne Mayo and Tammy Maygra. As for the sheriff, rumor has it he also took a raise and promoted his buddies to also get raises while getting rid of other employees. This from a man originally elected who claimed that money was no issue but is now out not only for re-election but to try again to get a levy passed. It would be interesting to find out if he has not only collected the bed fees for inmates brought in from other cities, counties, and out of state but has gotten that money (if collected) back from the county general fund. I would agree with his original statement throughout his original election that there is already plenty of money, if only it was used wisely. Again, we need new blood and that will mean voting for Dave Fuller for my part. Remember voters, it is really our money they are all using or trying to get out of our dwindling pocket books. The way I see it I will be voting for Wayne Mayo and Tammy Maygra for the respective commissioner positions they are seeking because both of them have to be elected to make a change. I will also be voting for Dave Fuller, sheriff. Hope you have had enough too and will join the rest of us voting this way.

that in fact, almost 100 percent of Ryan’s facts were accurate. Please investigate Mr. Ryan’s facts and Biden’s denials to see who is the liar I fully expected Biden’s pants to catch on fire or his nose to start growing at any given moment.

LETTERS The Real Grange For more than a 100 years, the real Grange has been a part of communities throughout Oregon and other states across the U.S. A few months ago, proponents of a casino and entertainment center in Wood Village adopted the name “The Grange” for their development project tied to Ballot Measure 82 and 83. PDX Entertainment is a local Lake Oswego group and is backed by a Torontobased private equity firm called the Clairvest Group Inc. This group has raised millions of dollars to advertise their casino. The trend is that big spenders win the elections, so we the real Grange are very concerned. This group has infringed on the trademark name of the National Grange. An agreement was made between the National Grange and PDX Entertainment to drop and/or change the name, “The Grange,” after the November election. Warren Grange of Columbia County wants our local friends and neighbors to know that we are the “Real Grange” of the community and we are not affiliated with the casino. We support projects in our community: 4-H clubs, rodeo court, fairgrounds, Word 4 Thirds at Warren Grade School, Mega Egg Hunt, St. Helens Senior Center, Meals on Wheels, South County Chamber of Commerce, Community Scholarship Foundation, foster kids, CASA, Special Olympics, community meals and the local food bank. Eva Frost and members of the Warren Grange, Warren

Time for change Time is getting close to make our political voices heard. For me it will be an easy year to vote in Columbia County and Oregon because there are no incumbents that have acted on what the people have voted for. Our county commissioners have not acted on the prior voices of the voters regarding the health district funds or the property they took, on taxation options voted in but not collected, on the raises they gave them-

Georgia Keiper, St Helens Biden in denial Biden’s “Cheshire cat” smile, arrogant bombastic remarks and reprehensible interruptions certainly were indicative of who he really is. Many news channels reviewed Biden’s denial of Ryan’s facts only to discover

Caty Engen, Scappoose Important decisions Twenty days from the date I am writing this letter voters will be making some extremely important decisions – nationwide, statewide, countywide and citywide. It is so very important that you be well informed when you mark your ballot. Tammy Maygra has been a positive influence for our county for over 20 years. She has never previously run for a paid political position. She is currently chairperson of the Columbia Health District, a member of Citizen Advisory Planning Committee and a member of the newly formed Clean Columbia County, a quickly growing organization hoping to prevent train and river barge shipments of coal from passing through or past our county. She is the only county candidate to come out against coal shipments. She fought against LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) being piped through our county for shipment to foreign ports. She is the person instrumental in stopping the 38 cent per thousand tax collected for a hospital which was never built. Over $8 million of your tax money has disappeared. One tangible asset remaining is the Millard Road property. That property is now held in a warranty deed by the trustees for CHD who are attempting to sell it and credit the taxpayers with over $3 million. Tony Hyde and his fellow commissioners want to turn the property over to the City of St. Helens for free with no tax credit to the taxpayers. Maygra has collected a fraction of the amount of her opponent, mostly from small local individual contributors. She is opposed to asking for money for her campaign. In contrast, her opponent, Tony

Hyde, has collected almost $20,000 this year, much of it from large companies, which have been granted huge tax abatements by the county. Maygra is running in opposition to incumbent Tony Hyde. Hyde has already been in office for 16 years. It is definitely time for a new commissioner, someone with fresh ideas and new energy. You need to ask yourself if you are better off now than you were 16 years ago. If the answer is no – vote for Tammy Maygra.

litical insider who secures crumbs of goodies because he sits at the table of a Democratic majority. That’s a false reason to vote for anyone. Barnes brings common sense and truly fresh ideas to a Salem that has been controlled by old Democrats for decades. We don’t need old school politicians and never did. Time for change is long overdue for this District 31 race. Lew Barnes will be our voice for fiscal and economic sanity in government.

Nancy Whitney, St. Helens (Editor’s note: Nancy Whitney is the campaign manager for Tammy Maygra.)

Art Hyland, Seaside

Barnes not Witt Here’s why: 1. What’s the first vote taken at the next legislative session? Chair leadership. Brad Witt votes Democrat, Lew Barnes votes Republican. Democratic leadership has resulted in Oregon’s over-spending; over-taxing; over-regulation, over-expensive energy alternatives and over-control of our lives. Top-down control is killing businesses and economic success in Oregon and our nation. Lew Barnes believes in limited, efficient, constitutional government. 2. Democratic leadership worships at the feet of government unions, such as the Oregon Education Association, which dominates Democrats and contributes exclusively to them. That alone is reason to vote for Lew Barnes, or any conservative. But here’s the bonus: Lew Barnes is an accomplished private sector employer. We desperately need private-sector influence in Salem, and we haven’t gotten that with Mr. Witt, who is at best a po-

Truly spectacular In response to Disappointed Alumni (The Chronicle, Oct. 17) – Mrs. Kindred, I am so sorry you missed the high school band the night you attended the football game. We have a wonderful group of musicians, under the direction of Noelle Freshner, that play at as many home games as possible. On Friday, Oct. 12, the St. Helens Marching Band traveled to Grants Pass to participate in a competitive marching band event. We too were sad to miss a home football game, but I am pleased to announce our students won first for all the Division awards, and came in second overall! I hope you find an opportunity to hear the band at an upcoming concert, football or basketball game. Their talent is truly spectacular.

sions). And every election it seems the choices get harder, the lines blurrier, and it becomes ever more difficult to see into the true hearts of the candidates and understand what kind of man or woman they will be in office. This election, however, has offered one bright spot of hope for me, in Columbia County Commissioner candidate Wayne Mayo. This is a man I have known since our salad days, and from that time to this his life has been the very definition of integrity in the modern world. Whatever Wayne does, whether in family, business, or neighborhood, he does it with his whole heart, always placing the needs of those around him in the forefront. Wayne’s very idea of campaigning for this office is a living example of his heart and mindset – instead of throwing money at advertising, publicity, and ballyhoo, Wayne has quietly gone door-to-door in neighborhoods all across the county, meeting the people, learning their concerns, and listening. When was the last time you heard of a politician listening to the people? We tend to elect rhetoric and doublespeak, smooth talk and good looks, subterfuge and private interests. It’s high time we returned to the days when we placed hearts and minds into office, not simply the loudest voice.

Support for Hayden I am writing to express strong support for Barbara Hayden in her running for a position for Scappoose City Council. She devotes a great deal of time and effort to fulfilling her duties and obligations of the many organizations she is involved with. Barbara is self-motivated, she is hard working and she is always willing to volunteer her time. Please add your vote for Barbara who promises a great support in economic growth and development with sound vision for future needs in our beautiful city of Scappoose. Mary Jo Mazzella, Scappoose Hemp can help Read the business pages in Oregon’s newspapers and it’s hard to be optimistic about where our state’s economy is heading. Just this week alone, Oregonians saw: a story about U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden calling for new revenue sources for Oregon’s counties hit hardest by the waning timber economy; an article about wind-energy companies in the Pacific Northwest bracing for lay-offs in the face of expiring production tax credits; and most recently, the announcement by Boise Inc. that it is shuttering its St. Helens paper plant, which will put 106 hard-working Oregonians out of work. The common thread in these stories, aside from the impact these announcements will have on households across the state, is that all three industries – timber, renewable energy and paper – are manufacturing industries. Oregon is a manufacturing state. Oregonians are good at harvesting our natural resources and equally good at making things. With this in mind, Oregonians need to vote yes on Measure 80. Yes, Measure 80 will regulate and tax marijuana for adults, saving law enforcement $60 million a year and generating tens of millions of dollars in new revenues for our state’s general fund, for schools and so-

We all pay How much could Tammy Maygra cost our county as a county commissioner? She is currently suing Robert Keyser for $23,000 over a political sign dispute and suing the Columbia Health District of which she is a trustee, is suing Columbia County Commissioners and nine other individuals in Federal Court for $9.5 million. Who will she sue when she disagrees with a county, state or federal agency or individual? We are all paying for her legal attacks against Columbia County and our commissioners; we cannot afford to elect her. Cecelia Nunn Haack, Scappoose Hyde right for the job I am writing this letter today to ask you to join my family and me in re-electing Tony Hyde as Columbia County Commissioner for another four years.

Rich and Jeanette Crandall, St Helens Auto Center, Inc. Not much of a choice I, for one, am quite let down over the quality of these presidential debates. Today’s national challenges require a lot more from these men than they have given us so far. I am less interested in who came across as the most macho or who had the quickest rejoinder put-down than I am in whether either one of them might be able to lead this country during a time of major changes. I wanted to hear how they would manage the inevitable withdrawal of troops from far-flung, unaffordable commitments around the world. I hoped

that they would level with the American people on the federal government’s inability to honor financial promises without both spending cuts and tax increases. Neither major party candidate indicated that they saw the need to change the direction of existing trade policies that have effectively sent our financial wealth and our people’s jobs to China with of course a good deal of profit going to certain international corporations, corporations that incidentally contribute handsomely to congressional campaigns. Maybe neither Mr. Romney, nor Mr. Obama, are up to the job of what Americans need in a president today. Not much of a choice at the top of the ballot if you ask me. Bob Ekstrom, Scappoose Best of the bunch A little over a year ago, I retired from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office after 22 years of service. I have worked with five different sheriffs over that period of time, including Sheriff Jeff Dickerson. Sheriff Dickerson is one

My money is on Tony Hyde. He has proven himself to be an outstanding leader over and over again. Tony knows Columbia County and has made a positive difference in our lives for more than 40 years.

where all the bodies are buried. I think what he meant by that was, you need experience and connections before you can be productive. You have to know who you can trust and who you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. In other words; you have to have some street smarts to survive. Tony has always said that he represented all of the people in Columbia County long before they voted to be non-partisan. Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponent Tammy Maygra, on the other hand, is inexperienced, and unqualified for the job. She can be pushy and hardheaded, and will stop at nothing including suing you if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bend to her will. I just found out recently that she and her supporters have filed a lawsuit against the three current sitting County Commissioners, the former hospital board and their attorneys for $9.5 million. If Tammy was elected to the position of County Commissioner, she would have to make sure that the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assets were protected against her own law suit. It would be a conflict of interest for her to work for the county under those circumstances. Can you just imagine the hostile working conditions that would exist between Tammy and the other commissioners, not to mention the resentment she would be sure to receive from the rest of the county staff and department managers? I also was told that the county has paid out over $150,000 so far in legal fees just defending their position

I first met Tony back in 1997 when I had purchased some residential property along Highway 30 to expand our ever growing automobile agency. When I tried to get the new property rezoned to highway commercial, I ran into a mountain of red tape and roadblocks. Even though the new property was contiguous to the original dealership location, I was told that it could not be rezoned until the City of St Helens could provide sewer and water to that location. Note: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 15 years now and we still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have city sewer and water at our location. Somewhat frustrated by the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unwillingness to work with me, I called Tony Hyde and asked him if he would intervene and help me find a solution to the rezoning debacle I was experiencing. Even though we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know each other very well at that time, I soon discovered that Tony was very easy to talk to and more than willing to do whatever he could do to help me resolve my problem. He went right to work, set up an appointment with the right people and we quickly found a solution to the problem. Over the years I have worked with Tony on various community projects and I have come to value his friendship. I have found that he has a very positive attitude in resolving problems. Tony is very intelligent and articulate, and he is well connected. An Oregon Legislator recently told me, that it takes you ten years to find out


Dickerson on a regular basis. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hardworking, transparent leader who puts a tremendous amount of effort into making the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office the best it can be for our community. I see the sheriff in his office within the typical 9 to 5, Monday through Friday, but we also get emails from him at all hours of the night â&#x20AC;&#x201C; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always working. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon to see him working at the office on the weekends too. Sheriff Dickerson has done a lot of great work for this community through his position as sheriff, and I have no doubt he will continue to run the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office within the best interest of the community. The sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is a professional law enforcement agency we as sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office personnel have a lot of pride in working for. I wholeheartedly believe the reason for this is mostly due to Sheriff Dickerson! Employees and volunteers both respect Dickerson and like working for him with his strong mission and direction of quality work, and following up on every call. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also fair and expects his staff be professional and accountable. My observations of Sheriff Dickerson are purely professional; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know him before I was a reserve deputy, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendsâ&#x20AC;? with him now. To lose Sheriff Dickerson as our sheriff would be a great loss to Columbia County. Please vote to reelect Sheriff Dickerson.

cial services. And regulating marijuana like liquor will make it harder, not easier, for Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth to get access to marijuana, just like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harder for those youth to get liquor now than ever before because of strict laws, tight regulations and ongoing education. But Measure 80 will do something even more important for Oregon: it will give Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farmers and entrepreneurs the protection they need to once again grow agricultural hemp in Oregon. Hemp, for those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, is one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important crops. During World War II, the U.S. government paid American farmers to grow hemp for the war effort. Modern farming and processing technologies enable hemp to be used in the production of tens of thousands of products, from bioplastics manufacturing to sustainable construction materials to bio-fuels to textiles to food and personal-care products. In Oregon, hemp can replace our flagging timber industry. It can revitalize our pulp and paper industry. And it can restore Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promising biofuels industry. Imagine an economy where farmers in eastern, central and southern Oregon grow agricultural hemp and sell that crop to biofuel refineries, textile mills, green-building start-ups, hemp food processors and more. Oregon is a place of incredible natural beauty and resources. Oregonians are pragmatic people who look for real solutions to our challenges. This Election Day, Oregonians will have the opportunity to create a new industry for our state, one that benefits rural farmers, smalltown businesses and big-city start-ups alike. For the 106 people who got the bad news from Boise Inc., a new, sustainable, viable and prosperous hemp industry is the good news they need to hear. But that good news will only come when Measure 80 passes. To learn more, visit

LETTERS (CONT.) trous to us all and for the county in general. We need leaders who will consider all options and not make kneejerk decisions.

From PAGE A9 of the best sheriffs I have ever worked for. His passion for empowering staff to solve problems and his genuine compassion for the individual helped transform the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office into a dynamic team. I have seen firsthand Sheriff Dickerson’s leadership skills and devotion to duty, and I can assure you that he is the best candidate for the job. I urge you to re-elect Jeff Dickerson as our sheriff!

Robert J Braud, St. Helens Qualified to serve During election campaigns, every candidate champions fiscal responsibility, increased public funding for essential government services, and job creation. But what services does this candidate consider essential? Does this candidate encourage jobs by spending your tax dollars on his favored interest groups and industries? In the end, we must judge the candidates by their actions and not by their clichéd campaign promises. Over his career representing unions and as a state legislator, Brad Witt has always acted to expand government control and expenditures. He has acted in favor of public unions and not in favor of private companies and private unions – unless the private companies are among the politically favored few. Brad Witt seems to have never met a spending bill he didn’t like. Over the last four years, he has voted to increase taxes, fines, fees, by over $3.7 billion during a time of sharp economic decline. These do not include the automatic increases in the state budget. Witt spends other people’s money. Unlike his opponent, Lew Barnes, Witt has never met a payroll with his own money. It is time for a change. I am voting for the candidate who will be fiscally responsible and who has, throughout his life,

Jim Carpenter, Scappoose Incumbents prove value After former years of disharmony at the county, we finally have Columbia County leadership with Jeff Dickerson as sheriff and Tony Hyde and Earl Fisher as County Commissioners who are congenial leaders who, with the able assistance of Henry Heimuller, lead this county with intelligence, compassion and in harmony. As we citizens know, the economy has been tough on us all and especially on municipal and special districts, which are constantly pressured for more and better services in the face of ever declining revenues. These incumbents have proven their value and have kept their steady hand on the tiller to keep Columbia County running smoothly and in the proper direction. I am weary of changing the current winning combination of leadership; they are all fine and caring citizens who deserve to stay in their jobs and I strongly encourage their reelection. They will continue to assist Columbia County during the trying years ahead. The Portland Business Journal reports that St. Helens (the county seat) is the ninth fastest growing city in Oregon. We need these current leaders to keep us on the proper course they have charted and to do so in a harmonious manner. A change in these top positions at this time could prove to be disas-

demonstrated his good character. Given Lew Barnes’s history as a U.S. Marine, his work in the private sector, and his history as a small business owner in our district, Barnes is supremely qualified to serve the needs of our state. Chana Cox, Skyline Ridge Semper Fi I have known Lew Barnes for decades. He is one of the finest men I know – a man of wisdom, compassion, and integrity. He will bring good judgment, real world experience, and balance to the Oregon legislature. He has been a U.S. Marine in Vietnam, an employee of both large and small manufacturing companies in Oregon – and now he is the founder and operator of a metal manufacturing business in Hillsboro. No matter how busy Lew is, he is always there to help people in the veterans’ community. Four days before my husband passed away, Lew came to our home and helped me hang our American flag high on our porch. That flag represents Lew’s ideals, and his life’s commitment to America. He will bring those ideals and that commitment to Salem when he is elected as Oregon State Representative in House District 31. Semper Fi is a code Lew Barnes lives by. Paula Ummell, Beaverton Committed leaders It has recently been suggested Columbia County

needs a change of county commissioners because the incumbents have failed to bring new jobs to Columbia County and have given away millions of taxpayer dollars. I would suggest this is not the case. We have the best team of county commissioners this county has had in many years, to replace them with individuals who have never been known as trusted team players would be a great mistake. I would like to use the following as just one example of the commissioners working effectively as a team for our county. The reference made to the SIP (Strategic Investment Program) agreement the commissioners signed, along with all the taxing districts in the Port Westward Urban Renewal District, would in fact give POE a tax break if a new generating plant is built at Port Westward. The SIP agreement allows POE to be more competitive in the region-wide bidding to build such a plant. The plant would add over $300 million dollars to our county evaluation. The SIP agreement would provide immediate tax payments to all the affected taxing districts, which presently would have to wait over 20 years for the Urban Renewal District to be paid off before they could begin collecting needed tax revenue. It means the fire district, the library district, dikeing district, and other tax-strapped public entities will get the money they need to operate now instead of having to wait 20 years. This agreement was agreed to in an open public process, in an open public meeting. It is an example of commit-

ted and knowledgeable commissioners working with local districts and business leaders to add employment opportunities (long term jobs as well as construction jobs), and adding greater evaluation to our tax roles that helps us all. Without commissioners who community and business leaders have trust in, Columbia County will not attract new businesses and the jobs associated with those businesses. Without commissioners who are well informed and understand the workings of public bodies and private business, opportunities for the county to move forward will not happen. We need to reelect Earl Fisher and Tony Hyde as our Columbia County commissioners. Don Kielblock, Warren Speaks with a forked tongue I want to comment on Mrs. Maygra’s letter in the South County Spotlight and The Chronicle on Sept. 19. In her comments she was very critical of the City of St. Helens, County Commissioners and the previous hospital board conspiring behind closed doors and backroom dealings defrauding the taxpayers on the hospital district land. I am wondering if this was true or just her imagination. If she knew the time, place, and subject, I would be reporting to the Attorney General. Second, comment was made that she and the rest of the board are trying to finalize a sale with the commissioners of the hospital property and that the issue would end if the commissioners just gave in

and let them sell the property. The thing she didn’t say is that she has the property tied up in court. Also, Mrs. Maygra is still proclaiming that she is chairperson of the health district. That has yet to be proven in court and you would think she would know better. There are two things I would like to see you voters of the health district do: First, call the election clerk at (503) 397-7214 and she’ll tell you the district has been dissolved. Second, on your computer look up Oregon Revised Statutes 198.925- 198.955 and you will see for yourself where the land goes. I would also like to comment on the critical statements that Maygra made about corporations such as PGE. PGE is one of the top 10 highest property tax payers in Columbia County. They kept the schools and livelihood going in Rainier. Also, I would add that these corporations have been a benefit to the Maygras when her husband worked as business agent for the ironworkers. And she continues the propaganda that she got rid of the 38-cent tax by initiative, totally false. I think she “speaks with forked tongue.” I do hope after all this you voters will do your homework on all the people you vote for and not just take someone’s word for it. As for me, I’ll be voting for Earl Fisher and Tony Hyde. I ask myself if the county would be worse off? They may not be perfect but who is, in my opinion.

Tribe wraps up 3rd straight league title For the third straight season, the No. 2 Scappoose Indians (10-1, 7-0) are Cowapa League champions. The Indians beat the Seaside Seagulls (5-4-2, 4-2-1) 7-3 on the road Oct. 19 to clinch the 2012 title. Earlier in the week the Indians defeated the Banks Braves (5-4-2, 2-32) in Banks, 6-0. The Davidson sisters – Charlie and Lucy – accounted for four of the Indians’ six goals against Banks. Charlie had the first goal 22 minutes into the match and Lucy scored the next one a minute before halftime to give Scappoose a 2-0 lead at the break. Both sisters assisted on second-half goals as well, one to senior Ariel Viera and the other to senior Molly Orr. The Tribe’s other two goals came


from freshman Eleanor Jones and senior Julia Grabhorn. “It wasn’t our sharpest game, but a 6-0 win is nothing to be upset with,” said Scappoose coach Chris Dorough. Scappoose came out sharp from the start against Seaside, despite the game being postponed a day because of a lack of officials. That left the Indians making the long bus ride to Seaside on two straight days. The Indians led 4-0 at halftime. “It’s two long bus rides, but the girls played well. 4-0 at Seaside is a good result at halftime. They’re a really athletic team, so 4-0 is a good result in general,” Dorough said. “We were able to put the game away early.” Viera had three goals in the first half. Charlie Davidson scored the

other first-half goal, then added the first two goals of the second half. Lucy Davidson scored the seventh goal for a 7-0 lead. The Indians led by seven with about 15 minutes to play, then opted to rest their starters. That’s when the Seagulls were able to strike for three goals. “We were a little bit too loose at the end, but we played really, really well up until that point,” Dorough said. Viera, Lucy Davidson and freshman Natalie Muth had two assists apiece. Scappoose was at home against Yamhill-Carlton (5-4-2, 3-4) on Oct. 23 and hosts Astoria (4-6-1, 3-3-1) at 4:15 p.m. on Oct. 25.

No. 4 Scappoose 28, Seaside 13

Scappoose weathers Seaside St. Helens is on a roll in NWOC

BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

SEASIDE — After lighting up the scoreboard and posting eye-popping passing statistics for five straight weeks, the No. 4 Scappoose Indians (7-1, 4-0) displayed an opportunistic defense and potent rushing attack in a 28-13 win over the Seaside Seagulls (4-4, 1-3) on Oct. 19. With the win, it appears Scappoose has won the 2012 Cowapa League title – the first league championship for the Indians since 2005. A win on Oct. 26 against the Astoria Fishermen (3-5, 3-1) would give the Tribe the title outright. A loss could potentially create a three-way tie between Astoria, Banks (5-3, 3-1) and Scappoose. Because of their spot in the OSAA Power Rankings, Scappoose appears to own the tiebreaker. Friday was just the second time all season Scappoose has been held under 40 points. A few timely interceptions from juniors Matt Shoun and Mychal Hortert helped keep the Seagull offense at bay. Shoun had two interceptions. “Turnovers were big. Matt Shoun had two interceptions and they came at big moments,” said Scappoose coach Sean McNabb. “Those plays, I felt, gave us a little momentum, stopped their momentum.” On offense, Carson Davison was a workhorse.

ior running back carried 24 times for 146 yards and a touchdown. “Carson had a really solid game at running back. I don’t think he’s been himself the last couple games but I thought he played well,” McNabb said. That helped offset a passing game that, although still effective, wasn’t as explosive as it had been over the past

few weeks. Heavy wind and rain made it a little more difficult to throw the ball. Junior quarterback Taylor Loss was 15-of-23 for 211 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Senior receiver Paul Revis had eight catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns. “For most receivers that would be a great night. It was

still a good night. With him, it kinda held him down,” McNabb said. Senior Kyle Kramer added three catches for 72 yards, including a 54-yard scoring bomb late in the game. Kramer was all alone for the touchdown catch after Seaside’s secondary bit hard on a See SHS, Page B7

The St. Helens Lions volleyball team (14-4, 10-2) enters the final week of the regular season riding an impressive win streak. After nearly knocking off the sixth-ranked Sherwood Bowmen (14-3, 12-0) on Oct. 2, the Lions have won five straight Northwest Oregon Conference matches. The latest two victims were the Wilsonville Wildcats (2-13, 210) and the Rex Putnam Kingsmen (7-8, 7-5). St. Helens beat Wilsonville in four sets on Oct. 16, winning 25-15, 21-25, 25-11 and 25-13. Two nights later the Lions dropped the first two sets to the Kingsmen before storming back to win the match in five sets. St. Helens won 2025, 21-25, 25-21, 25-17, 15-7. Dropping the first two sets to Putnam left head coach Tom Ray searching for a spark. Ray inserted two sophomore swing players from the JV team into the lineup. Hailee Fischer and Jessica Kinsman gave the team the shot in the arm it needed. “Hailee Fischer and Jessica Kinsman stepped up in game three when we were struggling,” Ray said.

With the duo energizing the Lions, St. Helens won the third set 25-21. Because they played in the JV match, they were allowed to play in only one set of the varsity match. Ray returned to his regular lineup for the fourth game. When the Kingsmen missed a serve to open the fifth set, the Lions knew they were in business. St. Helens won the deciding set, 15-7, to earn its fifth straight conference win. “We are playing very good volleyball. We are finding out that the faster we transition the better we play,” Ray said. “I was extremely proud of how the team came together last night.” Senior Jillian Ross led the team in more ways than one. She was a perfect 22-for-22 at the service line with three aces and provided “excellent team leadership,” Ray said. Senior Brooke Cathers added 13 kills and senior Megan Thompson was 83 percent on her passing. Against Wilsonville, junior Kali Moore finished the match 20-for-23 on serves with five aces. Cathers had 10 kills. St. Helens hosted No. 10 Liberty (13-6, 8-4) on Oct. 23. The Lions finish the regular season at Sherwood on Oct. 25.

Lions’ Long has big game in road loss BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

PORTLAND — The St. Helens Lions (1-7, 0-6) moved the ball up and down the field on Oct. 19 but couldn’t get it into the end zone until the final play of regulation. Junior running back Tanner Long shredded the defense of the Parkrose Broncos (3-5, 1-5), gashing them for 215 rushing yards. Once the Lions got inside the Broncos’ 20-yard line, however, they struggled to capitalize. “We moved the ball between the 20s relatively well,” said St. Helens coach John England. “Then we got inside the red zone and couldn’t finish it off. We had multiple opportunities to go ahead and we just didn’t do it. I’m disappointed in our ability to finish plays and finish drives. It could have been a much different game.” Defensively the Lions came up with several big stops and key takeaways. A 44-yard run just before halftime gave Parkrose its first touchdown. That was the only score the St. Helens defense gave up – Parkrose’s other score came when the

Junior Jacob Zartman, making his first appearance since week three, had eight tackles, two of them for loss. “Defensively (Zartman) can be a tough kid to block,” England said.

St. Helens wins fall league The St. Helens Juniors fall baseball team won the 2012 Apple Cup title. The Apple Cup is a wooden bat league that runs for six weeks in the fall with doubleheaders each Sunday. The Juniors – a team made up of freshmen and sophomores – finished the regular season 9-3 to take the top seed in the National Conference. In the playoffs, St. Helens beat Camas, 8-4, and Reynolds 6-3, to reach the playoffs against the No. 1 seed Vancouver Phillies (102). Jake Shirley had a two-run double. Bryce Mulcahy pitched six and a third innings, allowing three hits and striking out six. Shirley recorded the final two outs for the save. St. Helens beat Clackamas in the finals, 9-2. Shirley struck out seven and allowed just two hits through the first four innings. “This was an outstanding achievement for our Juniors, they have practiced hard

It’s a great team achievement,” said coach Jack Mulcahy. St. Helens’ Varsity team – made up of juniors and seniors

– finished the season with a record of 9-2-1. The team finished second in the National Conference but did not get to play in the semifinals because only one team from the National Conference reaches the playoffs. Find more details on these games at

Scappoose soccer, St. Helens football star in the classroom The OSAA has announced its Dairy Farmers of Oregon Academic All-State top 10 lists for fall 2012. With a 3.96 accumulative grade point average, Scappoose High School possesses the highest GPA of any girls soccer team in Oregon, regardless of classification. Several other teams from Scappoose and St. Helens made the top 10 lists.

St. Helens owns the highest team GPA among 5A football teams with a 3.48 mark. Other Lion teams in the top 10 are boys cross country (second, 3.83), girls soccer (eighth, 3.66), volleyball (ninth, 3.60) and boys soccer (fifth, 3.55). In addition to the girls soccer team’s No. 1 ranking, Scappoose High School had three other teams on the top

10 lists: girls cross country (second, 3.94), volleyball (fourth, 3.62) and boys soccer (third, 3.57). All of the teams listed will receive lapel pins. Because the SHS girls soccer team had the highest GPA for their sport among all classifications, members of the team will also receive “got milk?” sweatshirts, certificates and plaques.

Weekend Fishing Opportunities The Columbia River from Buoy 10 upstream to the Oregon/Washington border is open for fall chinook, fin-clipped coho and fin-clipped steelhead. Fall chinook catches are winding down, but anglers are still catching a few quality fish below Bonneville Dam. Steelhead catches are good in the Columbia River above the John Day Dam and in the John Day arm. Walleye fishing is good in Troutdale.

garden plots send these plants into crisis when the soil profile dries out as much as it did this summer. Symptoms could include rapid drying of the leaves or individual limbs dying. Under the ground, roots may be damaged. Root injury often leads to the strange symptom of trees leafing out next spring and then quickly turning brown. Drought stress may increase insect injury. A nonstressed tree often has resins, sap, or gum that helps it fight off trunk or limb borers. Weakened trees can’t mount the same level of defense. Roots that have partially died back can be more prone to root diseases that may cause significant and sometimes fatal problems in the coming years. For both these problems, there are no treatments (root diseases) or only marginally effective ones (insect borers). Some of pour native trees have very sophisticated stress response capacities. A lot of Oregon Garry oaks can be found in St. Helens on rocky, dry sites. This year, many had brown leaves by early August but have set buds on their branches and should, for the most part, leaf out normally next year.

Pray for O ur Nat ion “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Faith, courage and prayer birthed our great nation and guided America through more than 200 years of wars, natural and national crisis. Prayer is a freedom guaranteed to us by our Constitution, and a God-given right to all humanity. The opportunity to pray is a privilege, honor and sacred duty. History has proven that forces will wage war against our freedom. Terrorism has shed blood on American soil. Violent crime has invaded American homes and schools. Drugs and alcohol abuse rage against the innocence of our youth. Forces of darkness threaten our morality, integrity and faith. Prayer for our nation is our defense. Now is the time to be resolute in our defiance against the forces of destruction-to unite and not succumb to fear. Americans must stand strong and remain bold in faith, courage and prayer. The nation needs your prayers. The President, his advisors, congress and all local and national leaders need your prayers. Often people are unsure how to pray. It is the sincerity of the heart that determines a successful prayer, not the length, eloquence, or level of vocabulary. Make a commitment to pray daily for your nation. Minutes can change crisis into hope when you take the time to pray. Your Heavenly Father is listening. He loves you and this nation. A PRAYER FOR: National Patriotism Father, I pray in Jesus’ name that You would restore a social conscience to our nation. I pray that we would again see the value of teaching our children the virtue of being good citizens-to not only live for the good of the individual but the good of others as well. Dear Father, I desire to see our nation restored to godly integrity and excellence, so that our children and our citizens can be proud of their nation and proud to be called citizens of it. In recognizing our duty to God and our country, keep us mindful to pray for our nation not only in our churches and our homes, but also in the quietness of our daily lives. Scripture References Acts 24:16 Proverbs 20: 6,7

rior Rock Lighthouse on Sauvie Island, this section of the river is open from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 for fall chinook, coho and steelhead. The daily limit is two adults in combination and five jacks. Retention of chum and sockeye is prohibited. Seasons may be subject to in-season modifications. On Oct. 13 there were 69 salmonid boats and 42 Oregon bank anglers counted from Bonneville Dam downstream to Westport. Anglers had the highest catch rates in the gorge this past weekend, where boat anglers averaged 1.63 fall chinook and 0.5 coho per

boat, and bank anglers averaged 0.07 fall chinook and 0.02 steelhead per angler. In Troutdale boat anglers averaged 0.16 fall chinook and 0.03 coho caught per boat. Anglers fishing the Portland to Longview area averaged 0.14 coho per boat. Portland to Longview bank: Weekend checking showed no catch for five anglers. Portland to Longview boats: Weekend checking showed three jack chinook and three adult coho kept for 21 boats (39 anglers).

Sturgeon The following modifications are in effect for the mainstem Columbia River: From Buoy 10 to the Bonneville Dam, retention of sturgeon is prohibited seven days per week until Dec. 31. Catch and release of sturgeon may continue during retention closures. Portland to Longview bank: Weekend checking showed no catch for two anglers. Portland to Longview boats: Weekend checking showed one legal caught and one sublegal sturgeon released for two boats (three anglers).

Douglas fir is a little more problematic. It now grows on lower elevation sites that originally had oaks. Though Douglas fir naturally goes dormant in the late summer, the degree of dryness this fall mirrors other years that caused problems for fir trees. Some trees have already turned brown and are dead. Others have limbs that have died but the tree is still alive. Callers to the Extension office have noted the amount of

needles being shed this year. It is normal for conifers to shed needles in the fall from the inside out but drought stressed trees often dispense with more needles in response to lack of moisture. As noted above, our fall stress can continue to show up as dying trees well into the next several years. A cold dry winter could aggravate that problem but right now, that doesn’t appear to be in the forecast.

Scappoose forces tie for 2nd Scappoose’s three-set victory over the Astoria Fishermen (13-6, 6-4) in the final match of the regular season created a three-way tie for second place in the Cowapa League between the Indians (12-8, 6-4), Fishermen and Tillamook Cheesemakers (14-6, 6-4). Scappoose beat Astoria, 2725, 25-12, 25-18 on Oct. 22. “We played an incredible

match tonight. Our defense was incredible and our passing was nearly perfect,” said SHS coach Mark Sprenger. “I am so proud of this group of girls.” Because of the three-way tie, the three teams had a league playoff at a neutral site on Oct. 23. Scappoose won a coin toss, giving them a bye. Astoria played Tillamook at Banks

Seniors Anna Hernandez, left, and Sarah Carrier ran next to each other the whole race on Oct. 17, finishing fourth and fifth.

Tribe girls take top 5 spots in 6-team meet ST. HELENS — The Scappoose High School girls cross country team looked like one on a mission on Oct. 17. The Indians swept the top five places and their seven varsity runners all finished in the top eight of a six-team meet at McCormick Park. Senior Tia Carnahan finished first, followed by junior Charlie Davidson, freshman Lucy Davidson, senior Sarah Carrier and senior Anna Hernandez. Only St. Helens High School freshman Emily Hepworth’s sixth-place finish broke up Scappoose’s seven varsity runners. That gave the Indians a perfect score of 15 points. The Lions finished second with 52, well ahead of the third-place Clatskanie Tigers. In the second race of the day, the Scappoose boys also won comfortably. They weren’t as dominant as the girls, but still held off the second-place team by a large margin. Scappoose won with 29, led by the 2-3 finish of junior Hunter Hoyt and sophomore Dan Carrier. Seaside was second with 55 points, one point ahead of St. Helens. “The teams obviously ran well and I really liked how they were aggressive from the start and took control of the race at the outset,” said Scappoose coach David Harley. “They have consistently gotten better each race, not necessarily in terms of time, but even more importantly mentally and in-race focus and adjusting. These are great signs that a coach loves to see heading into the final two weeks of the season and they appear ready to go this week at district.” St. Helens coach Gerry Tinkle said the plan for his team at McCormick Park was to start slow and speed up gradually with each mile in preparation of the Northwest Oregon Conference championship meet. “I like how we are running right now. It will be a close meet for our boys next week. We will have to fight it out with Sherwood and Sandy for second place [behind Wilsonville],” Tinkle said. “The girls are hoping to finish at least fourth, which would be a big improvement for any finish for our girls team since 1999. 2003 was a really good team, but we were competing in the Three Rivers League.” The NWOC meet begins at 3 p.m. on Oct. 24 at Blue Lake Park in Gresham. On paper the Cowapa League girls meet does not appear to be a close one. Entering the meet, Scappoose has five of the seven best times in the conference, with Carnahan and the Davidsons owning the top three spots. The boys competition should be much closer. Astoria, Tillamook and Scappoose all appear to be relatively close to one another.

with Scappoose playing the winner immediately afterward. If Scappoose won, the Indians earn the No. 2 seed. If the Indians lost, they play on Oct. 24 against the loser of the first match for the No. 3 seed. To read about Scappoose’s wins against Seaside (4-16, 19) and Y-C (4-13, 1-9), visit – Kyle Boggs

The Scappoose Indians (29-1, 2-5-1) took a 4-3 road win over the Yamhill-Carlton Tigers (0-12, 0-8) on Oct. 22. On Oct. 17, the Indians came up short in a 2-1 match against the Seaside Seagulls (7-4-1, 7-0-1). Sophomore Devin Timmons had the lone first-half goal against Y-C, scoring off a throw-in from freshman David Bradley. Junior Jesus Martinez made it a 2-0 lead 13 minutes into the second half. Y-C then rattled off three straight goals to take the lead at 3-2. Scappoose, however, made sure that lead was shortlived. Timmons was fouled inside the penalty box with 12 minutes left in the game. Sophomore Asa Flanagan netted the PK to tie the score. Flanagan then scored again with four minutes left in the match for the game-winner. Martinez scored the Tribe’s goal against the Seagulls off an assist from Timmons on a free kick.

pump fake to junior receiver Justice Oman. Needing to score late in a game against the Seagulls was a new sensation for the Indians. Seaside had struggled in recent years but the program appears to be on the upswing. The Seagulls scored first in the game, then made it a 14-13 game midway through the third quarter. “They’re not the same team they’ve been in the past. They’re well coached. They run the wing T, which can give you some trouble. They have some athletes,” McNabb said. The Seagull coaches added a touch of unpredictability, running several plays the Indians hadn’t seen on film. Even with the surprises, the Tribe was able to combat the Seagull attack. “Our kids battled all night. We played well in the second half, we were the aggressor,” McNabb said. The good news for Seaside is most of those athletes will

be back next season. The Seagulls have just seven seniors on their roster. “They’re a good team and I look for them to be good next year,” McNabb said.

St. Helens earns league split SHHS loses two After a tough 10-minute stretch cost them against the No. 7 Liberty Falcons (7-3-1, 3-1), the St. Helens Lions (6-32, 2-2) responded with a 4-2 road win against the Parkrose Broncos (3-7, 0-4). Freshman Ashley Giesbers gave the Lions a 1-0 lead early in the second half against the Falcons on Oct. 16, but the Falcons scored three goals in a matter of minutes before going on to win 4-1. Before Liberty’s flurry of goals, St. Helens junior Stevie Strawn had a shot barely deflected by the Liberty goalkeeper. “If that had gone in, it would have been on. It wasn’t,” said Lions coach Simon Date. Freshman Genesis Hansen scored off an assist from senior Regan Duarte early against Parkrose. The Broncos then tied it, but Duarte assisted on a goal to Giesbers for a 2-1 lead.

The St. Helens Lions (2-8, 0-4) dropped NWOC matches last week to the No. 5 Liberty Falcons (6-3-1, 3-1), 6-0, and the Parkrose Broncos (4-6, 1-3), 5-0. This week the Lions played at Sandy High School (5-4-1, 2-2) on Oct. 23. St. Helens hosts Sherwood (5-4-2, 2-2) at 7 p.m. on Oct. 25.
