A house divided: Council faces off against mayor BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
SCAPPOOSE — Tensions between several city council members and Mayor Scott Burge flowed over into council chambers this week during the council’s Nov. 18 regular meeting. Half of the hour-long meeting, which followed relatively brief discussions about municipal code changes and a proposed fountain designed by local artist Michael Curry brought forward by Scappoose Rotary, was
spent chastising Burge for his actions and comments regarding the resignation of former City Manager Jon Hanken. Hanken submitted his resignation to the council on Friday, Nov. 8 after a special meeting was requested by three council members to discuss possible termination proceedings against him. That meeting was requested by councilors Jason Meshell, Mark Reed and Barb Hayden. All three, along with Councilor Donna Gedlich and Council President Larry Meres, voted to accept Hanken’s resignation
in exchange for a one-year severance package totaling more than $100,000. Only Mayor Scott Burge (Councilor Jeff Erickson was not present for the meeting) voted against accepting the resignation saying he thought the entire process wasn’t right and that Hanken was only doing his job. Burge’s comments at the meeting, along with others made to various media outlets, angered many of those on the council. “You came to my house several weeks ago and spent several hours talking to
me about Jon Hanken and Doug Greisen. You wanted to know my feelings about them both being terminated. And if that happened, how much of a severance package would the city have to give them so they would drop all legal proceedings. I told you my feelings at the time and I also told you that I thought we should wait until the council had more information from our city attorney,” said Gedlich, reading from a prepared statement. “I had previously talked to you on numerous occasions about Mr. Hanken’s personnel issues
with some of his staff… At the last meeting we had on Friday, you were very condescending to all the members of council. In fact, you couldn’t wait to throw us all under the bus.” Gedlich went on to add that she did not approve of Burge’s use of Facebook to urge citizens to come to the Nov. 8 council meeting in support of Hanken. She also said she was upset a new officer was hired by the police department while Police Chief Doug Greisen is still out on leave pending the See DIVIDED, Page A3
New ownership brings opportunities to Scappoose Bay Kayaking BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
Since first opening in 2000, Steve and Bonnie Gibson of Scappoose Bay Kayaking have been providing local and area paddlers with a water-bound haven. Now the couple have passed on the torch to Deek Heykamp and Bryan Knudsen’s alternative outdoor store, Next Adventure. The new partnership seems to be working out well for everyone. With Next Adventure backing us up, we have more equipment. Plus we will now be open year round,” said staff member Andy Stafford. For area kayakers, winter has typically brought with it closure of Scappoose Bay Kayaking for several months. Now, the shop will be open to kayakers, fisherman, and stand-up paddle board enthusiasts and others looking to rent a kayak or paddle board, in need of new equipment or high-quality camping gear and more. The change in ownership didn’t happen overnight. Next Adventure, which was looking for a paddling destination, originally approached the Gibsons with an offer to create a partnership. “If we have a customer looking at a $2,000 or $3,000 boat, it’s invaluable to have a place where they can test it in the water,” said General Manager Bru Benoist. “One of the things we’ve always prided ourselves about Scappoose Bay Kayaking is the customer experience. It’s about taking that first-timer, or even the advanced paddler,

and smothering them with friendly customer service. Whatever it takes.” For years, that customer service experience has meant that every kayak or paddle board renter is greeted courteously and professionally, matched to the right type of kayak – whether that’s a sleek, fast moving touring kayak, a tandem kayak or even a canoe – then fitted with a personal flotation device (no life vests riding up around your neck here), given a brief demo on correct paddling techniques and provided with a map of the bay.

Yo Place opens St. Helens’ first self-serve frozen yogurt shop BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
When they took the paper off the windows to wash them, ready or not, it was time for Yo Place to open. St. Helens’ first selfserve frozen yogurt establishment wasn’t planning on opening for another couple of hours. But once
people could see through the windows, they marched in one after another, ready to try out the tasty treats. Since opening on Nov. 2, a steady stream of people have flowed through the doors at 57835 Columbia River Highway. With 12 flavors of frozen yogurt on their six machines and more than 100 toppings, everyone is certain to find something they like. To
help make sure people aren’t left out, Yo Place is dedicated to keeping at least two no-sugar-added and two dairy-free options on hand. In addition to the 12 flavors in the machines, another 12 lie waiting in a freezer in to-go containers. In all, 120 different types of frozen yogurt will rotate

Dogs, horses and one cat seized from Rainier property RAINIER — Oregon Humane Society, along with staff and volunteers from Columbia Humane Society and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office rescued more than 100 dogs from an area puppy mill currently under investigation for animal neglect. OHS Executive Director Sharon Harmon said, “We undertook [the] rescue operation to stop the suffering of these animals. The dogs at this breeding facility were living in shocking conditions.” The investigation began last month when a local resident filed a complaint with Columbia Humane Society. Investigators seized the animals on Nov. 13. While officials have not released the name(s) of those being investigated, tax records indicate the property is owned by Catherine Setere. Setere is listed as an online breeder of Akitas. Workers spent more than 11 hours removing the 118 dogs, 21 horses and one cat from the rural property. Officials from OHS said many of the dogs were living in their own waste and had little shelter from the elements. Among the dogs rescued were 35 Akitas and numerous small breed dogs such as dachshunds, terriers and poodles. Ages of the dogs ranged from puppies to adults. Of the horses taken from the property, four were found to be severely emaciated and in critical condition. The horses are being cared for by Sound Equine Options, a Gresham nonprofit organization. Emergency shelter An emergency shelter was created by OHS to provide care for the rescued dogs, whose sheer numbers would have overwhelmed the capacity of the shelter’s northeast Portland facility. Staff and volunteers spent three days converting the 40,000 square-foot warehouse to house kennels and a medical treatment room. The use of the warehouse was provided free-of-charge to OHS by the Dietrich family. Columbia Humane Society is caring for 20 of the 118 rescued dogs at its St. Helens facility. Breeding facility under investigation All of the animals were removed from the Rainier property after a recent inspection found unsanitary conditions, including large amounts of fecal matter and urine throughout the kennels. OHS reported that one outbuilding used to house the dogs was found by Columbia County Animal Control Officer Roger Kadell to have no open windows or ventilation, and numerous piles of fecal waste and flooring saturated with urine. OHS obtained a search warrant to enter the property and seize the animals as evidence of criminal neglect. The warrant was served by OHS Humane Officers accompanied by deputies from CCSO. Columbia County authorities contacted OHS to help with the removal and care of the animals as it is the only organization in northwest Oregon with the resources necessary to carry out such an operation.
A volunteer holds one of more than 100 dogs seized from what officials are calling a “puppy mill” in Rainier.
Dogs being held Both OHS and Columbia Humane Society officials have noted the dogs seized are not currently available for adoption, as they must be held as evidence in the legal case against the owner. The owner could face multiple counts of animal neglect, each punishable by up to one year in jail and a $6,250 fine. The operator of the facility could also be in violation of the Oregon Puppy Mill Act, which prohibits breeders from having more than 50 breeding dogs at one facility and which also mandates minimal care standards.
Try our online e-edition!
Homes at the ready Once the dogs are available for adoption, it’s likely new homes will be ready and waiting. The story has garnered quite a bit of coverage from area media and interest from those looking to adopt or lend a helping hand. “Our CHS family is eager to help. Since the news broke the phones haven’t stopped ringing and the shelter lobby is full of donations each day,” said CHS Director Dean Cox. Cox said CHS is keeping a working list of individuals from all over the state offering to help. In the meantime, Cox urges potential adopters to be patient. “I encourage you to put your name on that list, however it isn’t in our hands as to when these dogs will be available for public viewing and interaction, let alone adoption,” he said noting it could be several weeks or even months before the case moves through the court system and the dogs are released. “At this point the best help would be a financial donation. No amount is too small. Obviously housing these animals is a necessity, but it was an unexpected event that could not be prepared for,” Cox said. “We do appreciate help in any and all forms… with this much uncertainty we have to be prepared for anything and supporting financial donations will allow us to do just that.” Donations are also being accepted by Oregon Humane Society. OHS also has an Amazon.com wish list where specialty items such as dog food, toys and treats can be purchased.

DIVIDED: council members disappointed From PAGE A1 results of two separate investigations. According to city municipal code, 2.24.050, the chief of police has the “power and authority, subject to law and any applicable labor agreement, to supervise and administer the personnel of the police force.” That includes hiring new officers. “You allowed the audience to take over the meeting and you and the city attorney both determined who could speak and who could not. Members of the audience interrupted council by asking questions they had no business answering because we couldn’t make a comment,” added Gedlich. Hayden, who also read from a prepared statement echoed some of the comments made by Gedlich but also took issue with the mayor’s comments about the Personnel Review Committee – of which Hayden was a member – and its findings. “I want you to know how disappointed I am that you, or anyone else, would think the PRC went into this investigation with any bias or extra ordinary knowledge of the chief,” said Hayden, referring to allegations that Greisen violated several city policies following a February police chief and the ensuing investigation.
Scappoose Municipal Code 2.04.160 (2) states the PRC will “determine whether the city manager action was, in the judgment of the PRC, in compliance with existing policies and law.” Yet the PRC’s own report seems to exceed that authority. In its report, the PRC stated it viewed “the issue involved here to be primarily one of a policy and training issue, not a safety issue,” and noted that Greisen had no documented prior discipline, performance or safety issues. A sexual harassment suit filed against the city and Greisen in 2005 was settled out of court. The PRC report also states it finds “the LGPI report to be an erroneous mischaracterization” of events. “You’re the one who started this all… you know full well the issue with the chief was just one small part of this,” said Hayden. “It’s time for the truth to come out and the people of this city to hear the facts not just what is fed to the paper, which it chooses to sensationalize.” Council President Burge wasn’t the only one criticized by the council. “I am disappointed on a few things. One of those things is… the citizens – there was one in particular – that thought this was a banana republic. I’ve worked hard on this council for
almost seven years and I take this very seriously,” said Meres. Echoing sentiments expressed by others of being disappointed by the mayor, Meres added he was also disappointed in the City Attorney Ron Guerra. “Any communication should be in writing and to every councilor, not just to the mayor. We need to get this under control,” Meres added. In response to those criticisms, Burge said he approached the council members about a possible severance package for Hanken because he “could see the writing on the wall” and knew that the four votes necessary to terminate him were already there. Burge has repeatedly said he did not support the council’s move toward firing Hanken. “I knew I didn’t want a termination in the middle of an investigation that would look and smell like retaliation, and had to fight a lawsuit that could have been a lot more money,” said Burge. The obvious rift between the council and the mayor, who is serving as city manager, raises concerns about how the city can move past the turmoil. The next council meeting will be on Tuesday, Dec. 3 starting a 7 p.m. in council chambers.

Yo Place offers up a wealth of frozen yogurt at their new St. Helens location.
YOGURT: Yo Place opens in St. Helens From PAGE A1 through the machines and the to-go freezers. A sampling of flavors includes chocolate and vanilla, mango and key lime, cinnamon roll and pumpkin, and Rockstarand Red Bull-infused froyo. While there are options to-go, staying will be the preferred option for many. Owner Jen Massey said Yo Place is meant to serve as a safe, club-like environment for all ages. The walls are decked out
with flat-screen TVs, music is pumping and neon lights adorn the baseboards. There are tables for those wanting a bit of privacy and there are couches and chairs in front of the fireplace for those wanting to lounge around. With a location near St. Helens High School, Massey wants Yo Place to become a post-game destination. To accommodate post-game gatherings, Yo Place’s hours are 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m.
until midnight Fridays and Saturdays. Massey and her husband Terry have been supporters of SHHS athletics.

unit train rail cars per year, which equates to approximately 38 unit trains per month.” However, until Jan. 1, 2015, Global will be limited to 32,000 unit train rail cars per year, which is the equivalent of roughly 24 unit trains per month. To reach that capacity, Global Partners – which purchased Columbia Pacific Bio-refinery last February – said it will need to invest $50$70 million at the Port Westward facility. Global estimates that will create approximately 30 familywage jobs and that it will resume production of ethanol, which the refinery was originally built for. This investment would include improvements to Hermo Road, the dock, construction of additional storage facilities, and rail transfer operations According to Portland & Western Railroad, which owns and operates the rail line, the existing track cannot accommodate more than 24 unit trains per month. In its resolution, the Port said, “Portland & Western Railroad (P&W) has strategic capital rail plans and improvements within the County, for the entire “A” line which upon completion will result in roughly 20 additional jobs, and will accommodate increases in rail volume.” David Anzur, director of marketing and sales for P&W, confirmed the existing rail line would not support higher speeds needed to accommodate
The port commission’s decision wasn’t the only development at Port Westward. The Columbia County Commissioners approved the port’s rezoning application for 957 acres at Port Westward – although with some conditions. See the full story at TheChronicleOnline.com. the additional rail traffic. “There are two things and one is train speed. Our rail is 50 miles long and many sections are at 10 mph. Our goal is to get the entire line up to 25 mph,” he added. But in the wake of a Nov. 8 rail crash in western Alabama in which a 90-car train carrying crude oil from North Dakota derailed, many are concerned about safety. Of the 20 cars that derailed, three exploded sending flames an estimated 300 feet in the air. The train was carrying an estimated 2.7 million gallons of crude oil and was traveling on a Genesee and Wyoming rail line, the same company that owns the P&W rail line. “We need to have a discussion about the safety issues of what you’re planning,” said St. Helens resident Annie Christensen. “Of course it can happen here.” Anzur said that although the rail line has yet to specify how much money will be available for the rail improvements, areas in need of improvements have already been identified. “Our priority areas are
going to be around St. Helens and Scappoose, and Rainier,” Anzur said. “More specifically in St. Helens, there are some ties that we are looking to replace.” In addition, says the Port, the state’s Regional Solutions team has been working to identify funding to assist with the safety improvements, especially for those needed in Rainier. As for those with complaints about noise or delays from the additional traffic associated with Global’s expansion, Port Commissioner Colleen DeShazer recommended they move. “While I empathize with those who live near the railroad – I live two miles from the rails and I can hear them, too – if you don’t like it, move,” she said. “Don’t move next to an airport if you don’t want the noise. Don’t live next to a racetrack. Those things are going to happen. I’m not trying to be inconsiderate but there’s a train track there. It’s called commerce.” A draft of the resolution is available at TheChronicleOnline.com.
KAYAKING: offering more dock to make it easier to get on the water. All of that attention to detail and service isn’t going anywhere. While nothing is being taken away from Scappoose Bay Kayaking’s products or service, Next Adventure has added quite a bit to the local shop. The shop now carries a selection of camping gear items such as backpacks, sleeping bags, and more. “It’s not just selling the gear. They actually provide the avenues for those people looking to participate in a group activity, said Benoist. With just two months under the new ownership, Benoist said the arrangement is working out well. “It turned out to be one of those win-win-win deals across the board. The staff is ecstatic,” Benoist added. During the paddling season, there will be a representative selection of equipment and gear from Next Adventure. When Labor Day rolls around and fewer
paddlers are taking to the water, the store will shuffle its resources and have a wider selection of that gear in house to purchase. There was also one more notable change from the new arrangement. Scappoose Bay Kayaking will have its first ever Black Friday sale this year on Nov. 29. Along with some doorbuster sales, there will be equipment with high end names like Sierra Designs, Kelty and Mountain Hardware available. “They’ve done a good job of providing good, better best,” said Benoist. “It’s affordable but it’s still quality equipment.” The change in ownership doesn’t mean Steve and Bonnie Gibson won’t be around. According to Benoist, the pair will be back to lead paddle trips here and abroad. For more information about Scappoose Bay Kayaking rentals and products, go online to ScappooseBayKayaking.com.

Letters Another option On Wednesday, Nov. 13, the Port of St. Helens approved a request from Global Partners that will double the number of unit trains hauling crude oil through the county. Also on Wednesday, the County Commissioners approved a request from the Port to allow industrial use of land historically zoned for only agricultural use. Two statements made clear why they came to a decision that promotes crude oil, trains and industry in opposition to the best interest of the citizens of Columbia County. 1. Port Commissioner Colleen DeShazer ended the meeting by telling those who protest the increased rail traffic and the resulting degradation of lifestyle that we are free to move because, after all, the trains were here first. 2. County Commissioner Tony Hyde said individuals and families living in the county are a drain on resources and represent a budget deficit as opposed to business and industry who more than pay their way and represent a budget surplus. The cards are on the table for all of us to see. People and the environment lose. Industry wins. And if you don’t like it you can move because you are a drain on resources in Columbia County anyway. There is one other option. You can vote! Nancy Ward, Scappoose It’s in the numbers Per a study from 1988–2001 from the Police Policies Studies Council, the average NYPD police shooting miss-to-hit ratio approaches 75 percent. Keep in mind that these are real shootings not target practice. Also, 69 percent of the time the officer and target were within 2 yards of each other. When more than two officers are involved, the shots per officer go up and the hit ratio drops to 9 percent. The mean score for all shootings, single to multiple officers is 15 percent. During this time period 9,899 shots were fired and only 2203 found their mark. I am not so sure I would want to be in a theater with multiple civilians firing at a criminal. You could be bringing out a lot of bodies. Just hope you have good insurance if you start firing in a crowded venue. Charles Rae, Columbia City The test of time At this time of uncertainty in both local and federal government, we have a shining star here in St. Helens. With so many businesses and restaurants coming and going, we have to be thankful to Bud Hickey and his efficient wait staff (Kozy Korner at Fourth and Columbia Boulevard). If you want breakfast at 6:30 a.m. you encounter a happy, smiling waitress ready with coffee, etc. The gents that gather (6 on weekdays, 8-10 on Saturdays) to swap stories and enjoy
coffee or breakfast are always welcome. The ladies know nearly everyone by name and what you order. If you need a room for a function, they have it. Thank you, Kozy Korner. You have stood the test of time. Rod and Sandy Nastrom, Warren Think big and just “can” it With all the banter over coal/ no coal, rezoning/no rezoning, and whatever other points of contention that have hamstrung this county’s economy at Port Westward how about this – A deep water container terminal. And here is why: the container terminals at the Port of Portland are obsolete. Container ships have been getting larger for years, and the Willamette River is too narrow and shallow for modern container ship traffic. Even back in the 1970s when the container ship The Hawaiian was new, it was too long to turn around at Terminal 3. When it departed, it had to return to the Columbia River backwards. In spite of Portland having the most direct rail route to points east, both Terminal 4 (the Toyota docks) and Terminal 6 at Kelly Point are small in comparison to those in Tacoma and Seattle. Because of that – and port costs – Hanjin, one of the larger container shippers on the West Coast, just pulled out of Portland. Add that loss to the difficulties the Port of Portland is having (or had) with a proposed grain terminal at Hayden Island due to a bird sanctuary and the lack of a dedicated bridge to Marine Drive; it is easy to see the Port of Portland is in trouble. What the Port of Portland lacks is what we have, the potential for a deepwater container terminal. As for rail infrastructure to support a deep water container terminal, we can do what was done at the Port of Los Angeles – build a trench that allows motor vehicle traffic to flow unobstructed above it, eliminating the worries and hassles of railroad crossings. And should the tracks cross over a waterway, elevate them if need be. With them currently running right through Rainier’s downtown, relocate them. Sure it is big undertaking, but the rewards will definitely be worthwhile, not to mention “green,” given how efficient rail is. As long as commerce remains global and transportation companies have a need to move goods and products, they will be more than happy to “throw in” for the cost of infrastructure improvements. Global Energy certainly is on the “right track” with its proposed rail improvements. Even the bicycle community would benefit with a safe, permanent path similar to what runs alongside I-205. Think of it, a fairly level bike path that could potentially run from Portland to Astoria. So, why not? Anything is possible if we just give it a chance. Having a deepwater container terminal sure beats relying on pirates and spooky movies to provide income and jobs for this county. With so

much dissention going on about Port Westward, it is just time we “can” it, and take advantage of an opportunity that’s been 40 years in the making. Martin Kennedy, St. Helens For the people Port Commissioner Colleen DeShazer ended the port’s Nov. 13 meeting by telling those who protest the increased rail traffic and the resulting degradation of lifestyle that we are free to move because, after all, the trains were here first. At a later meeting, County Commissioner Tony Hyde said individuals and families living in the county are a drain on resources and represent a budget deficit as opposed to business and industry who more than pay their way and represent a budget surplus. I enter the fray in praise of commissioners DeShazer and Hyde. Truth is a bold and dangerous commodity, its revelations can dizzy the head, churn the stomach and leave us hungering for kinder and gentler half-truths, and even more to the point, the comforting lie. Bravo and brava for these two servants of the people for coming out in resounding chorus (cheek to cheek) and singing the praises of industry over the common man. It has always been much easier for individuals in their often compromised position (politics) to feign concern about people, all the while going about the daily business of serving the corporate need. They could have varnished the truth, and taken the morally questionable road, but chose instead honesty. In regard to Commissioner DeShazer’s comment on the chronological primacy of trains before people – what can one say? I’m sure there is a book of revelations hidden somewhere that encourages such a cosmological point of view, even though it flies in the face of a lifetime of research by Charles Darwin; chicken or egg, train or people – you decide. And she was correct in pointing out that it is a free country, or county, which affords us all the option of moving if we choose to do so. So on this account it appears she is in full support of the inalienable right of all citizens to freely choose what is best for themselves. I don’t think I would be going too far by summing up the central point of her argument as follows: trains, like corporations, are people, and they too should be availed of the right to vote. Commissioner Hyde’s position on people and families also makes perfect sense. These are two demographics of society with which I too have a bone to pick. If they would all just pack up and leave, the county would no longer be required to keep the roads maintained (except of course along industrial corridors). Nor would it need to take on the burden of keeping schools open and maintaining fire and police departments. The post office could be downsized and social programs (because only people and families avail themselves of these troublesome and costly endeavors) could
finally be eliminated. Commissioner Hyde’s vision for the county is of a bold and cinematic cast, conjuring imagery from the recent Gatsby movie, where fabulously wealthy protagonists are briefly forced to pass through a devastated landscape of smoke stacks and homeless people on their way to the delights of the big city. One could argue this is a small inconvenience and price to pay for progress. In conclusion, I believe what our representatives are saying is that government for the people is the problem. If we can, as was suggested above, remove the middleman (people) from the equation, we would be left with government for the government (i.e. corporations). It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how much more profitable this would be for everyone. Russell Sabella, Warren Constitutionally right From Oct. 23 to Nov. 17, the St. Helens School District website received 626 emails on our policy GBJ reversal. Only about 13 were negative and none based on law. Comments were “I didn’t know,” “I’m afraid of guns,” “no one asked my opinion.” I believe if we had made any other decision, we would have violated federal and state laws and our oath of office by denying individuals their Godgiven (natural) rights of self defense. One letter made reference to Article III sections 1 and 2, but only quoted section 2. None of us can “interpret the Constitution any way we see fit.” I would ask why then are the military, police, union members and elected officials
all required to take a personal oath to uphold the Constitution? Article III, Section 1 states “the judges both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior...” I would suggest judges can’t “interpret the Constitution any way” they “see fit.” Historically, 12 judges have been impeached and four removed from office for making unconstitutional decisions. Disclaimer: these are my thoughts and opinions and I don’t speak for the school district or any other board members. Ray Biggs, Columbia City Stakeholder or shareholder? According to Columbia County Commissioner Earl Fisher, an open meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 25 at the Columbia County Fairgrounds Pavilion to discuss the failure of the levy to support the jail. According to another commissioner, Tony Hyde, only “stakeholders” will be allowed to speak. Stakeholders, as defined in the American Heritage College Dictionary, Fourth edition (probably 30 years old) means “one who holds the bets in a game or contest.” When checking this word in the 2013 version of the Oxford University Press, there is no definition available. Perhaps Commissioner Hyde intended to say “shareholders,” which is defined in the same Oxford University Press as “an owner of a share or shares in a company.” Now, what gets my attention in this particular matter is that the county commissioners
have declared the “stakeholders/shareholders” only include the courts, district attorneys, police and the city councils. I absolutely object to these limitations. A large majority of the people voted against the jail levy. This should mean to the commissioners and the sheriff that they did not put an acceptable levy before the voters. Why can they not listen to the people who voted this levy down? There are good, sound reasons why this happened. And yet here we go again. The people who voted against this last levy will not be allowed to say why they did so. I assume the fairground pavilion was chosen because it will hold a lot of people. If the commissioners want a lot of people to come, why will they not listen to them? Because they know what the people are going to say and they just do not want to hear it. It is happening throughout my county – nobody “in charge” is listening to the people. They do not hear us say we do not want coal trains. They do not hear us say we do not want crude oil trains. They are just not listening to those who put them in office. This behavior must end. I am a taxpayer and I am a “stakeholder/shareholder” in this county. I don’t want to move, as Port Commissioner Colleen DeShazer said we should if we don’t like it here. I don’t want to be considered a burden as was stated by Commissioner Hyde because people cost more than does industry. This is my county and I want it to be clean and honest – and that just is not happening. Nancy Whitney, St. Helens
MORGAN (M) Morgan is around 6 years old. She was a puppy that was adopted from the shelter when she was just 8 weeks old. Her owners however moved into a home where they were no longer allowed to have dogs so she unfortunately had to be returned to the shelter. She is a very sweet girl, loves everyone and really loves to play ball. She is around 78lbs and appears to have had a little training done with her. We would love for you to come and see her and make a new friend.

Firefighters ‘Get the Boot’
Columbia River PUD warns of telephone scam targeting customers Columbia River PUD is urging its customers to be wary of giving out information over the telephone because of a scam targeting utility customers across the United States, and in the greater Portland metropolitan area. Last week, a Clark Public Utilities customer reported receiving a call threatening to disconnect power if payment wasn’t made immediately. The scam caller identified himself as a representative of PG&E. The scammer used Columbia River PUD’s 24-hour information number
as his caller ID number, but gave a separate number to call with the payment information. This type of scam has been perpetrated within Columbia County on at least two separate occasions this year. PUD customers reported receiving similar calls in April and again in August. “These scams seem to be growing more common,” said PUD Accounting and Customer Service Manager Sheila Duehring. “If you have any doubts about a caller’s identity, don’t give them any information, and do
not pay them.” Customers who receive suspicious phone calls are encouraged to note the phone number on their caller ID, the phone number they are asked to call with the payment information, and any other information that the caller provides. End the call without providing any information to the caller and then contact the local police and the PUD at (503) 397-0590 to report the call. The PUD provides several types of notification to customers who are facing disconnection for nonpay-
ment, including mailed notices, door hangers and phone calls. The PUD also offers several payment options, including visiting local pay stations, visiting the PUD office, or paying online at crpud.net. “We would never demand a payment only by credit card or prepaid credit card,” said Duehring. “We’ll always offer other payment options, so if that’s the only choice being offered, it’s not the PUD calling you.”
didn’t he would still offer it. He was considered to be a true friend of many. Bill had an amazing sense of humor and was known for making up witty statements known as “Eggerisms.” He was known for his life stories and would share them with everyone he met. His ability to strike up a conversation with anyone and everyone is why he will surely be missed by all who have met him. He lived a full life and left a lasting impact. Bill is survived by his wife of 46 years, Leah Eggers; sons Nathan and Jon; daughter Kristen and daughter-in-law Jodi. He also has five grandchildren: Christopher, Matthew, Andrew, Jack and Spencer. Bill is preceded in death by his favorite dog, Buster, and cats Hercules and Big Big.
Pastor shares insights to life-altering changes ST. HELENS — In this season of hope and forgiveness, “The Life Flight of a Pastor” offers enlightenment through the veil of tragedy. On Nov. 22 at 7 p.m., Pastor Therron Kraft of Trinity Baptist Church in Newport, will speak about his near fatal automobile accident. “This message comes out of real life experience,” said Kraft, “where we all live.” Aside from spiritual insight, his presentation includes photos of the wreckage and X-rays of his injuries. Kraft’s life-altering experience continues teaching him many months later. The wreck helped him realize God allows devastating things to happen because He has a greater purpose. More than a year after the accident, Kraft still works through daily pain and times of being discouraged. “I’m in the trenches,” he said. “If you have ever spent a cold night in a tent, you know that all you’re looking forward to is for morning to come.” The event, part of a Reaching Out revival, is sponsored by First Missionary Baptist Church, 2625 Gable Road, in St. Helens. Services featuring other speakers will be held Nov. 20 and Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. and on Nov. 23 at 6 p.m. For more information about this presentation, contact Pastor Leroy Goodman at 503- 397-2874 or go to sthelensbaptist.com.
If you receive a suspicious call: - Don’t trust the number you see on the caller ID; it can easily be faked. - Write down the phone number you are asked to call with payment information. - Write down any other information the caller provides. - Hang up and call the police and the PUD to report the call.

Local school districts offer educational programs and services for eligible children from kindergarten through high school. Services provided are appropriate to each child’s disability. Parents, guardians or others who know a child age five through 21 with a disability who is currently not receiving educational services can contact Mary Mitchell, Director of Special Education, at the St. Helens School District Office (503) 366-7230.

Access to Student Information by Military or College Recruiters Our District receives funds from the federal government under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. These funds are used in a variety of ways to provide additional help to students in greatest academic need. The law also requires that districts receiving these funds must, upon request, provide to military recruiters, colleges and universities, access to the names, address and telephone listings of secondary students. It is important for you to know that a secondary school student or his/her parent or guardian may request that the student’s name, address, and telephone number not be released by the district without prior written parental consent. If you would like to make such a request, please contact your child’s guidance counselor. Education Rights Of Homeless Children and Youth The School District is actively seeking to enroll children and youth who are homeless. If you are homeless or know of a child or youth that is homeless and not attending school, please contact the following person who will provide information and assistance during the enrollment process: Local Liaison: Lisa Rawlings Address: 474 N. 16th Street St. Helens, OR 97051 Telephone: 503-397-3085 * Who is considered “homeless”? Any child or youth not attending school who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence is considered homeless and includes those who are sharing housing with others due to loss of housing or economic hardship. It also includes children and youth who are living in hotels, camping grounds, emergency shelters, cars, bus or train stations, or other similar settings. If you are not sure, please call. * What are the education rights of homeless children and youth? Our schools provide equal and comparable access to all students regardless of their home living situation. Homeless children and youth have specific rights that include: a. Immediate enrollment in school and, when desired or feasible, at the “school of origin.”
Wednesday, November 20, 2013 999
b. Prompt provision of necessary services such as transportation and meal programs. c. Appropriate support services and programs for which they are eligible such as programs for gifted, children with disabilities, vocational education, preschool. d. Academic assistance through the district’s federally funded Title I program. e. Parent or guardian involvement in school activities. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Annual Notice Of Student Education Record Privacy The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive federal funds. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their child’s education records. When a student reaches the age of 18 or attends a post-secondary school or college, the parent’s rights transfer to the student and the student is then an “eligible student” under the law. Under FERPA, parents and eligible students have the following rights: 1) To inspect and review the student’s education records maintained by the school within 45 days of the school’s receipt of a written request. The request should identify the record(s) being inspected. The school is not required to provide copies of records and may charge a fee is copies are requested. 2) To request that a school correct records believed to be inaccurate or misleading. The request must be in writing and clearly specify: (1) the part of the record requesting to be changed, and (b) why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the school decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to a hearing. After the hearing, if the school still decides not to amend the record, the parent or eligible student has the right to place a statement in the record about the contested information. The school is not required to consider requests for grade or disciplinary decisions, opinions of school officials in the education records, or the child’s special education determination. 3) To control the disclosure of their child’s personally identifiable information from their education record. Parents may request that the school, with certain exceptions, obtain their written consent prior to the disclosure of student information. An exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school staff with legitimate educational interests, such as a person employed by the district; a person serving on the school board; a person or company with whom the district has contracted to perform a special task (such as an attorney, auditor, or therapist); or a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a grievance or disciplinary committee or assisting another school official; and/or an official of another school district in which a student seeks to enroll.

Scappoose beats La Grande 3-1 to win the 2013 4A Girls Soccer State Championship BY KYLE BOGGS email@example.com
HILLSBORO — The Scappoose Indians have been one of the top 4A girls soccer programs each of the last four years. Now, they are officially the top team. The Indians (15-3), beat the La Grande Tigers (16-1) 3-1 on Nov. 16 to win the school’s first ever girls soccer state championship. “It feels amazing. Especially since we were kind of the underdogs this year. I think we just showed everyone how well we can work as a team, how far we can get,” said sophomore Lucy Davidson, the Moda Player of the Match. Davidson assisted on two of the Tribe’s three goals. Scappoose fell behind 1-0 in the match’s 14th minute when La Grande’s Alissa Welberg chipped a shot over the goalkeeper. The Indians tied the match 12 minutes later on a corner kick. Sophomore Madison Verzino sent the ball into the box, where junior Emily Muth was there to knee it into the goal. “I hadn’t scored all season so I’d been super bummed about that. It made it so worth that,” Muth said. “That corner kick could not have been set up any better. I just can’t believe I got on the end of it.” The teams stayed tied into halftime before Davidson set up a pair of teammates in the second half. To the Cowapa League Player of the Year, there was never any doubt her squad would be able to move into the lead. “I know that when they scored, we were just so determined to get another goal. Our halftime, when it was tied, we just wanted to come out and just work as hard as we can to get that other goal,” Davidson said.
Junior Kim Carpenter was there to put in the Tribe’s second goal. It was her second goal of the season. “Kim comes on, does everything she was asked to do, scores to make it 2-1,” said Scappoose coach Nick Heffernan, whose squad captured the title in his first year at the helm. Then with under a minute to go, sophomore Eleanor Jones blasted home the match’s final goal. “Eleanor Jones, confidence again. Puts it in the top corner from 20 yards. Unbelievable. Over the moon, just over the moon,” Heffernan said. Jones’ score set off a mad celebration among the Scappoose players and the hundreds of fans who made the trip over Cornelius Pass. “Icing on the cake,” Muth called the goal. “It was great. We weren’t that worried anyway. It was 2-1, we were playing great, they had a player down. But it’s so nice to get that extra little cushion that if anything had gone wrong we would have been right there.” Jones’ goal was significant for more than just starting Scappoose’s championship party. Entering the match, La Grande had allowed only three goals to opponents all season. Scappoose did so in 80 minutes. “Our attack is unbelievable. We defend as a team, then when everyone is up, we just go. We fly and a team that’s only conceded that many goals, it just shows how positive we are and how confident we are going forward,” Heffernan said. With a roster loaded with underclassmen, Scappoose should be a threat in the coming years. The Indians lose four seniors from this squad – Alix Raya, Eisha Campos, Jenny Vardanega and Lexi Courtney. The rest of the team will be back to try for another Big Blue trophy in 2014. The school’s last state championship came from the 2011 girls cross country team.

the top four. The Indians came excruciatingly close to advancing to the semifinals on Nov. 15, dropping a 21-20 home playoff game to the North Bend Bulldogs (10-1, 6-0). Scappoose held North Bend on downs twice in the game – including a goal-line stop inches away from the end zone – but aside from those two drives, the Bulldogs did not turn the ball over. The Indians, on the other hand, muffed a punt, lost a fumble and were intercepted twice. Two of those turnovers led directly to North Bend touchdowns. “Like I told the guys, maybe there’s some mistakes. You can’t just pinpoint one or two things. We had opportunities to make it happen and there were some times when we didn’t. I didn’t do great calling the plays all the time,” said Scappoose coach Sean McNabb. “But you can’t second-guess yourself. You go out, you play as hard as you can, leave it on the field. I felt like our guys did that. You definitely can’t walk off the field feeling bad about that. They gave it their all; I’m proud of them about that.” Scappoose had an opportunity to tie the game in the fourth quarter after senior running back Carson Davison
scored his third rushing touchdown of the night. After a low snap, however, the PAT try was no good. Davison was a workhorse for the Indian offense for the second straight week. He carried the ball 22 times for 87 yards and scored a TD in each of the final three quarters. “I’m so proud of our guys up front. They were able to continue to improve like they did. Early on [in the season] I felt like we struggled running between the tackles. We ended strong. Carson ran well, we did some good things up front. I was really proud of the efforts those guys made and the improvements they made,” McNabb said. On the other side of the ball, the Scappoose defense held North Bend’s offense to less than half of its scoring average. The Bulldogs entered the game averaging better than 46 points per game. Senior defensive lineman Kenny Klippel said the team dedicated a lot of practice time to shutting down the Bulldogs’ impact players. “We just worked hard in practice. We keyed in on all of their best players. We just worked hard,” he said. One of the players they were set on keeping in check
was North Bend quarterback Cameron Lucero. The Indians held him to 156 yards through the air and 30 yards on the ground. But three of his 11 completions ended up in the end zone. “I was so proud of [the defense]. [Lucero] has had his way with everybody he’s played. Even the game they lost he was able to throw the ball all over the place. I feel like we really held him in check. He made some big plays. We had a blown coverage on that touchdown. He made a couple really good throws on the wheel route. I felt for the most part our defense did their job. We held him in check of the most part and he wasn’t able to run like he typically does,” McNabb said. “Bottom line is we needed to score more points. We needed to score when we had the ball. We had some execution issues. I’m proud of the way they played.” The Indians were balanced offensively. While Davison powered the running game, senior quarterback Taylor Loss spread the ball around to different receivers. He finished the game 22-of-35 for 282 yards. Senior Justice Oman
caught seven passes for 95 yards. Oman made a few grabs in traffic and then dragged Bulldog defenders for yards at a time before being brought down. Junior Jacob Wendelschafer caught four balls for 74 yards. Junior David Krupsky had 65 yards on five catches and senior Nick Rust added 48 yards on six catches. In the end though, the Indians needed one more score, one more stop, one more break. “Ya know, it’ a sucky feeling but I know everyone was giving 110 percent,” Klippel said. Before Shoun reminded his teammates they were one of the state’s top eight teams this season in that post-game huddle, McNabb delivered a similar message. The coach acknowledged that it hurts now, but encouraged his players to look at the big picture. “They’re gonna have some great memories. It might hurt for a few days, but I’m really proud of the way they played this year,” McNabb said. “Going into it, our goal every year is to contend for a state title and I felt like we made a great run at it.” North Bend will play No. 2 Cottage Grove (9-2, 5-0) on Nov. 23.

Companion planting Plants are not really passive inhabitants of the garden or landscape. They may produce chemicals that repel insects or stunt neighboring plants. They may send chemiChip Bubl cals into the air that call wasps in to kill caterpillars on their leaves. Companion planting for most gardeners involves placing two plants close together so one will repel the pests of the other. However, there are many more interactions between plants that are both interesting and useful for the gardener. Plants can affect the growth of other plants by chemicals they produce. A common ex-ample is the production of juglone by walnuts. This compound acts as an herbicide, pre-venting seed germination and inhibiting root growth of sensitive plants. Other plants like rye grain, cucumbers, sunflowers, oats, and alfalfa show some level of allelopathy (the technical term for one plant inhibiting other plants) as do many perennial weeds like quackgrass and Canada thistle. Plants can act in a companionable way by altering
the nutritional status of the soil. Leg-umes like beans, peas, and clover are valued for their ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen in the soil. When the next crop is planted, this “free” N is available to provide some of the nitrogen needs. Some plants are deeply rooted and can bring minerals nearer to the surface, which can benefit other plants. Gardeners take advantage of both these phenom-ena by planting cover crops and practicing crop rotation. Plants can shade out competing weeds. An example of this is the bean/corn/squash plant-ing pattern of the Native Americans. Many garden plants have specific sun/shade requirements. The alert gardener under-stands these relationships and plants their vegetables and permanent
garden plots landscape to take advantage of these preferences. Some plants, like maples, can bring moisture from the lower soil profiles and exude it through their surface roots thus benefiting other plants growing within the surface root zone. Pest damage reduction is the most controversial aspect of companion planting. Many in-sects locate their preferred hosts or food plants by smell. There is some evidence that strongly scented plants will repel some pests. However, there are many studies that show poor results from interplanting to reduce insect damage. University of California research on the cabbage butterfly showed that the “companions” they tried did not reduce damage but did, through competition, actually

Don’t give these plants for gifts! Gardeners like to share showy plants that are easy to grow. But sadly, many of these plants are not good neighbors. They spread without much help and can be a real problem in natural areas and other locations. Here is a list of ornamental plants that have escaped in Western Oregon.

reduce yield. The University of Georgia studied a series of “classic” companion combinations and found no impact. University of Kentucky tried to repel Japanese beetles (which thankfully we don’t have) from roses with garlic chives, zonal geraniums, and rue only to find either no impact or an increase in problems with the geranium! The best argument for companion plants involves those that nourish insect predators and pollinators. These include wild carrot (Queen Anne’s lace), fennel and parsley flowers, and alyssum, among others. It also helps to be able to identify the various life stages of our beneficial insects. Avoidance of “big-block” or long-row planting will also help to distract insect pests. It looks nicer, too.

Indians strike quickly in semifinal win over La Salle BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
SCAPPOOSE — With a trip to the school’s first girls soccer state title game on the line Nov. 12, the Scappoose Indians wasted no time punching their ticket to the 2013 OSAA 4A Girls Soccer State Championship game. Sophomore Lucy Davidson scored 54 seconds into the Tribe’s semifinal match against the No. 7 La Salle Falcons (13-4, 9-1 Tri-Valley), setting the stage for a 3-1 Scappoose win. Davidson’s goal was the first of three highlight-reel scores for the Indians. The next one came from sophomore Natalie Muth, who weaved her way through several Falcon defenders before sending a shot into the back of the net while falling down. Davidson then scored the third goal to give the Tribe a 3-0 lead in the 68th minute. She split two defenders, passed to sophomore Eleanor Jones who tapped it right back for a picture-perfect give-and-go. “They’d be on the top 10 on ESPN – that’s how good they were. At this level – high school – it’s hard to do stuff like when Nat put a ball in, Eleanor instead of touching it and turning, she just flicked it with the outside of her foot. It went back to
Lucy, Lucy dribbles, shoots, we score,” said Scappoose coach Nick Heffernan. After La Salle senior Courtney Crain converted a penalty kick in the 69th minute, the Indians had two other near misses. Jones sent a shot in from 40 yards out that the Falcon goalkeeper just tipped over the crossbar. Sophomore Madison Verzino followed that with another deep near miss that bounced off the crossbar. “It shows how much they want it. We’ve made a really good side look average. It’s nothing to do with La Salle – they gave it their all, they’ve had a great season – but our girls wanted it more than anything,” Heffernan said. Perhaps the player who came up biggest for Scappoose was sophomore Sam Darr. Darr was forced back into goalkeeping duties after sophomore Jessie Dykes left the field in an ambulance against Gladstone. Darr entered the season as the team’s third-string keeper but has seen plenty of action because of injuries to Dykes and senior Alix Raya. “Beginning of the game she was shaking, shaking, shaking,” Heffernan said. “Me and Alix Raya – she’s just incredible – she kept talking to Sam saying ‘You’ll be fine, you’ve got a defense there that’s like a brick wall. They’ll have your back.’ And they did.

On their way to a state championship, the Scappoose girls soccer team put away La Salle on Nov. 7, going up 3-0 before finishing with a 3-1 win.
“She didn’t show she was nervous She came for balls, she didn’t stay on her goal line. She was kicking it amazingly. She saved shots. To stick someone in there
like Sam and for her to do a job that well, props go out to her. She’s an amazing girl.” Darr admitted to having nerves at the start of the game, but said David-
son helped them go away quickly. “I was really nervous. Super scared coming into it but I knew my defense had my back. I just felt really
good about it,” Darr said. “The first goal came off the bat really quick and that first goal kinda helped me relax. It’s like we’re ahead, and that helped a lot to relax.”
Boosters reward best teammates At the St. Helens High School Fall Sports Awards Dessert on Nov. 14, the St. Helens Sports Boosters Club presented a new award to five student-athletes. The Best Teammate Award was created this year to recognize up to five student-athletes each season. The criteria for the award
are character, leadership, scholastics and community service. The winner of each award was presented with a certificate and $100. Student-athletes were nominated by their coaches. Those nominations were then submitted to the Booster Club’s executive board, which voted to determine
the winners. The inaugural winners are, from left, senior football player Corey West, senior cross country runner Alyna Habel, senior cross country runner Bryan Strang, senior soccer player Paul Lobaugh and junior soccer player Sydney Nett.
