BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
ST. HELENS — Columbia County Rider passengers will soon have a new transit hub to get familiar with. On Monday, Nov.18, the CCRider Transit Center Park-n-Ride will officially open to all riders using public transportation in Columbia County. All route services will start at the new CCRider Transit Center. The park-n-ride opening will coincide with some schedule and pick-up location changes for the St. Helens to Portland, St. Helens to PCC/Willow Creek and South Flex Route schedules. “All of the buses are going to start out here, at the center,” said Transit Director Janet Wright. “For the fixed routes – to PCC and Portland – they will go from here to Rite Aid and then Warren Baptist Church and then on into Scappoose… and we’ve added a new stop on Havlik Drive, right by Highway 30.” The St. Helens to Portland and PCC/Willow Creek Schedule changes include a See TRANSIT, Page A8

St. Helens Middle School teacher Charles Sanderson was among about two dozen other teachers, parents and students protesting the school board’s recent decision to repeal a gun ban policy.
Coalition protests repeal of gun ban ST. HELENS — About two dozen parents, teachers and students organized under the banner of St. Helens Coalition for Safe Schools, gathered just off school grounds Monday to protest a decision made recently by the St. Helens School Board to allow teachers to carry concealed weapons. “This is not about anyone’s constitutional rights to bear arms. This is a much larger conversations that has been started about the safety of our children and them being in schools,” said former St. Helens student Sam Chapman, who helped organize the Nov. 4 protest. “I personally don’t think teachers should be expected to protect kids
with guns for the same reason I don’t expect police officers to teach advanced chemistry.” During an Oct. 23 meeting, four of the five-member board voted in favor of repealing Oregon Board of Education Policy GBJ, which banned teachers, contractors and volunteers from carrying weapons onto school grounds. Only board member Jeff Howell voted against repealing the policy. Many of those at the protest said they were concerned and disappointed that the board failed to seek input from those most affected by the ban – teachers, parents and students. When the board initially consider the policy last March, which was passed
with a vote of 3-to-2, a poll was conducted that showed that around 70 percent of the teaching staff were opposed to allowing staff to carry weapons – information many think the current board chose to ignore. “In my opinion, the very idea of putting guns in schools to increase safety seems counterintuitive,” said Susan Conn, a St. Helens resident whose children all attended school in the district. Conn currently serves on the St. Helens City Council and is a former St. Helens School Board member. “Teachers are educators, not safety officers. If the school district feels they need safety officers or armed guards they should hire professionals,” said Conn.
For Amber Horn, a teacher at St. Helens High School for the past six years, the board’s decision is only one part of a larger overall issue. “I didn’t realize that anyone with a concealed weapon permit could come on to any school campus in Oregon at any time. The only control school boards have over concealed weapons permit holders is whether or not staff and people affiliated with the school, such as volunteers and contractors, can carry a concealed weapon,” said Horn. “Only 20 percent of schools in Oregon have a ban, and that includes Rainier and Clatskanie. I wanted to get the word See GUN BAN, Page A8
Parent group alleges harassment at band competition BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
A run-in between band members from St. Helens High School and Kennewick High School, in Kennewick, Wash., could soon make its way to court. An Oct. 31 letter from the St. Helens Band Patrons Parent Organization was sent to Kennewick School District Superintendent Dave Bond alleging students from that district “reached out and grabbed, groped, and swatted St. Helens band students on their butts, crotches, and in other locations,” during the Harvest Marching Band Festival in Yakima, Wash., on Oct. 19. The letters also alleges that Kennewick Band Direct Brent Steiner was made of aware of the situation by Noelle Freshner, band director for St. Helens High School, but failed to take appropriate action “despite the fact that these actions clearly violate school rules and See BAND, Page A8
St. Helens woman injured in hunting accident SCAPPOOSE — A St. Helens woman remains in the hospital after being accidently shot in the leg while hunting a few miles west of Scappoose last Friday. Lindsay Roub, 24, suffered a severe leg wound when the rifle she was carrying discharged as she was handing it to her hunting partner. Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the area of Siercks and Pisgah Home roads after Roub’s friend and hunting partner, Raymond Ozias, 39, also of St.
Helens, called for help around 5:12 p.m. Ozias did not have a good cell phone connection and information was relayed to deputies by a third party. Deputies began searching in the area for the injured hunter at 5:21 p.m. Deputy Bill Haas located the couple around 5:35 p.m. Roub was found with a serious gunshot wound to her right leg. The responding officers said Roub was barely conscious when they arrived and that a makeshift tourniquet had been applied to her leg to
control the bleeding. Haas then applied a second tourniquet and after additional deputies and medics from the Scappoose Rural Fire Protection District arrived, she was carried out of the woods to a waiting ambulance and transported into a Portland-area hospital. Ozias told deputies he was hunting with Roub when they spotted a buck in the woods. He said they were trying to chase the deer into a clear cut so they could take a shot. While maneuvering on the deer, they had to walk down
a steep hill. Ozias said he was walking in front with his rifle slung and Roub was carrying her own rifle. At one point, Roub asked Ozias to take her rifle so that she could climb down. Ozias said Roub handed him the butt stock of her rifle, but as he grabbed it, he started falling backward when the rifle fired. He said he believes that a branch must have been in the trigger well causing the rifle to discharge, shooting Lindsay in the leg. Ozias said he attempted to
call 9-1-1 but could not get service. He applied a makeshift tourniquet to reduce the bleeding. Once the tourniquet was applied, Ozia said he kept trying to call anyone for help and eventually reached Roub’s father, who responded to the scene. Deputies investigating the scene found it to be consistent with Ozias’ statement. The incident is being treated as an accidental shooting at this time, although the investigation continues.

Log export plan stirs emotions at town hall BY JEREMY C. RUARK Lincoln City News Guard
What was billed as a town hall to discuss citizen concerns about a proposed multi-million dollar 15-acre log export yard at the Port of Newport turned out to be more of an anti-logging presentation. The event, held Oct. 29 at the Central Lincoln PUD offices in Newport, and presented by Citizens Seeking Alternatives to Log Terminals (CSALT), drew about 75 people. “We believe many of the decisions about this plan have been made in secret,” Elizabeth Atly, with CSALT, told The News Guard prior
to the town hall. “We would like a more transparent process.” The town hall included what organizers called a panel of experts who argued against logging and exporting logs, citing issues such as the economic impact of the project on the community and trade issues. The panel included Roy Keene, a forestry consultant; Greg Pallesen, vice president of Oregon Pulp and Paper Workers Union; Elizabeth Swager, director of Oregon Fair Trade; and Paul Cienfueos, lead organizer of Oregon Community Rights. Several months ago, the Port of Newport began discussions with Rainierbased Teevin Brothers Land
and Timber Co. and Hancock Timber Resource Group to build the log export yard at the northeast side of Yaquina Bay and ship logs to China. Teevin commissioned a traffic impact study of the plan to use up to 50 log trucks a day along S.E. Moore Drive into and out of the Port for the project. “On June 3 the Newport City Council upheld the Newport Planning Commission’s decision that approved the Teevin traffic impact analysis of the log trucks using S.E. Moore Drive,” said Derrick Tokos, City of Newport’s community development director. The Landing at Newport Condominium Association, The Oregon Coast Alliance
Wauna names Kulp employee of the quarter
Sara Kulp, operations manager for the St. Helens and Scappoose Wauna Federal Credit Union branches, and a Scappoose resident, has been selected by her coworkers as the July-September 2013 Employee of the Quarter. “This is a well-deserved honor for Sara,” said St. Helens and Scappoose Branch Manager Joe Burks. “During this quarter Sara demonstrated both her strong leadership and empathetic support skills to assist staff and members while also successfully managing an extraordinarily busy project list.” Sara’s efforts definitely caught the attention of her coworkers based on the quantity of nominations submitted on her behalf. Within the nominations was written recognition for being “Always willing to help,” “Working extra hours to assist members,” and “Always being positive, supportive, and a genuine friend we can count on.”
Prudential Northwest Properties is proud to announce our new name...
and Newport resident Nancy Smock have appealed the City’s decision to the Oregon State Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA). LUBA heard oral arguments of the appeal in October and could issue a decision early this month. JoAnn Barton, president of the Port of Newport, told those at the town hall that the Port entered into negotiations over the log export yard as a way to increase Port revenue. She said the project could produce as much as $1 million annually for the Port. “The Port assets have deteriorated because they are in such a state of disrepair,” said Barton. “The Port is in dire need of a reliable steady income. Fees charged to the commercial and recreational
users are not enough to maintain the facilities adequately.” Barton said the Port needs $4 million to make muchneeded repairs to the docks and $4.7 million to dredge portions of the bay to allow increased commercial shipping, including logging ships. Some of those attending the town hall worried about the loss of the commercial fishery industry and other jobs if the Port could not find the funds needed for repairs and maintenance. Others expressed concerns about the impact on the community and environment from the log export project. Barton discounted charges that discussions for the log yard have been held in secret. “The only negotiations
that are behind the scenes are those contract negotiations for a land lease,” said Barton. “Virtually everything has been done at public meetings. To suggest that anything has been going on behind closed doors is blatantly untrue.” Barton said land negotiations with Teevin and Hancock could wrap up this month. But CSALT’s Maria Sause said the log export project needs to be scrapped and suggested more public discussion to seek alternatives. “All the citizens will have to get together to think about how to do this in a sustainable way,” said Sause. “We cannot continue to rape the environment.”
Emergency responders to host public forum on crude oil rail shipments, oil-spill response
PORTLAND — The Northwest Area Committee, a team of federal, state and local regional environmental emergency responders, will host a public forum on increased rail shipments of crude oil along the Columbia River on Nov. 19 in Portland. This meeting brings together federal, state, county, city, port, industry partners and other environmental emergency responders. Members of the general public are invited to attend. The forum is an ideal opportunity to learn more about oil spill response in the Pacific Northwest and the risk posed by increased shipments of crude oil in our region. Attendees will receive information on environmental responses incidents that occurred in the last six months. Information about oil products shipped from the Alberta oil sands and Bakken oil fields in North Dakota and Montana, the source of most crude traveling by rail through the Pacific Northwest, will also be featured. A group discussion in the afternoon featuring representatives from the Union Pacific and BNSF railroads will address precautions and environmental emergency response practices taken by industry and regulators in the event of a spill of oil or hazardous materials. For addition meeting details, the agenda and more information about the committee, visit the Northwest Area Committee website at rrt10nwac.com.

A Teacher’s Point of View Speedbump
Area students and teachers go above and beyond all expectations

BY KEITH MEESUWSEN Teacher St. Helens High School
By Keith Meeuwsen
Today we begin to tell the story of what is going on in your public school system from the teachers’ point of view. Every second week of the month a teacher will talk about their school, their class, an event onal or something on their mind of that deals with the work ed- they do. We are hoping, as a ders. group of teachers, to let the earn public see what we do from an insider’s point of view. We are hopeful that you will in find this interesting and enBak- lightening and see that what ugh teachers do is interesting, hard, wonderful and is some of the most important work d there is. I hope you enjoy. My name is Keith Meeuwsen, I have been teaching it Social Studies at St. Helens ion High School for the past 28 years. I got my job here when I was 22 and am now 49 years old. I have taught in the same building my entire career and have had the opportunity to teach Global Studies, U.S. History, Economics, Street Law, Citizenship and AP European History. In those years I have had the opportunity to work with some absolutely great teachers and students and am currently working with an outstanding group of students in my Citizenship classes. What strikes me most when I talk to other teachers is how universal our problems are. Last year I went to a National Social Studies Convention and also graded AP exams in Kansas City, Mo.; what I find is that the problems we as teachers face in St. Helens are the same issues that teachers face everywhere, things like com lack of time, students who c11769 cause us grief, too much work, new ideas from the state that do little to make our job better, lack of materials, lack of funding for the ideas that would really make teaching fun, and the list goes on and on. The other thing that strikes me is how good our staff at St. Helens High
School is. We have teachers who go the extra mile all of the time and do not expect extra pay, they just want what is best for kids and hope that they are helping to provide kids a great future. Teachers like Amber Horn, who gets kids excited about science and gets them out in it or Mike Herdrich whose curriculum in Automotive has kids looking forward to high paying jobs and career opportunities or Tom Fuller who spends an incredible amount of time trying to teach kids the importance Keith Meeuwsen of writing and how to become better writers. It is those kind of people who are really looking out for our kids and trying to make sure they are ready for the world they will be entering in the near future. The other thing that really strikes me is our students. Too many times we hear how high school students in the United States just are not measuring up to the rest of the world and I do not believe it. Yes, we have kids who could try harder or take a tougher class load but that does not mean they are not capable of great things or cannot compete, it just means they have not decided to do that yet. On the other hand we have unbelievable students who do more in a day than most people on this planet have ever dreamed. I have students who go to church before school, take every college prep class they can fit into their schedule, play sports after school, volunteer in the community and find time to be ready with their homework done every day and continue to smile when I meet them in the morning. How these kids can do all of that is a mystery. It just shows you that we have kids in our community that you could stack up against any kid anywhere.
Lastly, lets take a look at the Citizenship classes I am currently teaching. We have been studying the new health care law and the government shut down. It is so interesting to see kids so interested in how the world should be and how people should be. My students tend to believe that you need to work hard in this world for the rewards that you get and that the government should only help people temporarily and not be what you live off of the rest of your life. My students are bright, ask great questions, and do not understand why the issues facing our country cannot be solved. They have great energy and tend to be positive about their future and the future of our country. While taking my class students have to attend a couple of public meetings and this has been eye opening for them. They are resistant and think that going to a public meeting will be boring and a waste of time until they go to one and find that they are interesting and affect them. I recently graded their first public meetings and I had student after student talk about how interesting the meeting was and how they are looking forward to the next one. I think part of that has to do with the recent school board meetings that dealt with guns and Middle School sports, things they understood and had opinions on. Anyhow, it is awesome to read what they thought and how excited they were to attend and be a part of the process. Often I hear from people how students have changed and how it is so much different today than it was 30 years ago and I just don’t buy it. Kids are kids, they really do want to learn and they want the lessons they are taught to be high quality. They have high expectations of their teachers and will do great work when they believe the work they do is valuable. When I come back to work in August every year and look at the empty seats I think of the great discussions and interesting students that I

for our town, a good thing for the High School and a good thing for our Lady Lions team. It comes at a time when we can all use “good things.”

get the opportunity to work with and it gets me excited to do my best for them and help them understand the world they are going to be thrust into. Education will always be a place of controversy for
parents, teachers, students and the government. What makes it so controversial is that everyone has an opinion on what is the best way to educate kids and help them learn what they need to learn to make it in
this increasingly complicated world. I continue to be inspired and hopeful due to the teachers I work with and the absolutely wonderful students who walk into my classroom every day.
The coaches have paid their dues, the Lady Lions have worked hard and it has all paid off in a league championship and learning to work together for goals.
As a town, we should be proud of them. As parents, we should cheer for them and as a community we should hold them up as examples. This team has

Mary M. Murray
Mary’s family lived in Eastmoreland for part of her early childhood and then moved to Cactus Drive in Southwest Portland. Mary attended Ainsworth Elementary and St. Helens Hall in Portland, and Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii. While in Hawaii, she met a U.S. Navy sailor from North Carolina named Randolph Sykes, fell in love, married, and started a family. While Randy was in the Navy, the family was stationed in Hawaii, Guam, and Bremerton, Wash. Mary and Randy had seven children: Randolph, Norman, Michael, Gerald, Deborah, Darryl and Duane. The family settled in the rural Scappoose area and Mary resided there until Randy’s death in 1989, when she relocated to downtown Portland. She loved living in the city, with its many opportunities for entertainment and shopping within easy walking distance and her favorite place, the Multnomah County Library. Her career began as clerical support for her mother’s staffing agency, Staff Employment. She also worked for the City of Portland as staff to Commissioners Mike Lindburgh and Margaret Strachan. After retiring from over 20 years of public service at the City of Portland, Mary shared time between her retreat in Vernonia and her downtown apartment, eventually settling full-time in Vernonia. She enjoyed living in downtown Vernonia where she could easily walk to shopping, restaurants, the parks, and the library and hosted large gatherings of friends and family during the Vernonia Jamboree.

Laura Howard Jouno Laura Howard Jouno slipped away peacefully at age 98 to start her next big thing on Friday, Nov. 1, 2013, in Portland. Laura H. Jouno She battled Alzheimer’s to the very last with dignity and a big heart. She was born June 10, 1915, in Yankton in Columbia County, Ore., to Herb and Lucy Howard. Her parents came from longtime pioneer families who settled Columbia County in the 1800s and had nine children: Herb Jr., Miles, Perry, Ira, Josie, Joe, Charlie, John, and Laura. Her father was born before the Civil War and he was 62 when Laura was born. She was the youngest and outlived all of her siblings. When she
was born, her brother John was asked if it was a boy or a girl, and he said “It’s a sister.” She was known ever since as “Sister” by her family and friends. Laura, aka Sister, spent her adult life in Yankton, St. Helens and Portland. She married Clayton Miller at 18 and had one daughter, Jean. During World War II, she worked at the Kaiser Shipyards doing welding work on Liberty ships, though she later said she worried about anyone riding on any ship she welded. She did not finish high school when she was young, but she taught us it’s never too late when she completed her high school diploma at age 60. She married Frank Jouno in 1968 and they were together until his death in 1987. Laura lived large; she liked bright colors, parties, singing, dancing, interesting conversation, and handsome men; we’ll let you guess in what order. She loved holidays, especially handing out candy to neighborhood children on Halloween night. Christmas was a special treat when she lit up “Granny’s Electric Christmas” every year; the power grid has never been the same. Whatever the ups and downs of her life, she was always able to wring out every last bit of joy. Laura is survived by her three living grandchildren, Alison Schoepp and Ann Burger of Portland, and Robert Burger of Corvallis; and her three great-grandsons Devon Streed, Henry Schoepp and Sam Schoepp of Portland. Her daughter Jean Alice preceded her in death in 2005, as did her grandson John Burger in 2003. She also leaves many Howard and Jouno nieces and nephews in her wake. Laura will be interred at the Old Yankton Cemetery next year when the flowers are in bloom. Her family feels great appreciation for the wonderful care Laura received from Emerson House in Portland, a memory care facility with exceptionally skilled and loving caregivers. In her last months, Serenity Hospice also contributed their caring support. No matter what was going on, they “got” Laura and loved and respected her for who she was. In her last years, they became part of her family.

ago, he was luck enough to retire to St. Helens with family. He was always up for a trip to Seaside for a sunset or the mountains for the season’s colors. One of his favorite hobbies was hearing his youngest grandson play in the St. Helens High School Band. He and his dear friend, Cricket, would sit for hours watching their favorite TV series. He always had a smile for anyone he knew or met and always loved family get-togethers. Ted is survived by his three daughters: Rebecca Brand (Rachel), Debbie Ritthaler (Don) and Mary; four grandsons: Darrin, Auston, Joshua and Daniel; three granddaughters; brothers Robert and John Brand, of Galesburg; and sister Dorothy. At this time, there is no memorial planned. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent in his name to the St. Helens High School Band Program, 2375 Gable Road, St. Helens, OR 97051. The family wishes to thank so many wonderful people in Dad’s recent illness for all their prayers and support. Daddy was every so grateful to have known you all.

Rick was in constant motion, mentally, emotionally and physically. He was endlessly inventive, always dreaming of perfection, but never convinced of its attainability, forever building, repairing, renovating, and creating. To everything he turned his hands to he brought a combination of skills: draftsmanship; mechanical engineering; construction; instruction; and leadership. He never felt he had helped enough people, completed enough jobs, solved enough problems, or conveyed enough information. He was hard on himself but sought constantly to make life better for others. He loved animals with a passion, and horses in particular. His life’s dream was to create a place where people wishing to learn and willing to work hard could find a safe and supportive community of like-minded individuals seeking excellence in horsemanship, and he was fortunate to find in his wife, Katrin, a partner with whom to share that dream. Rick’s hand is evident everywhere he lived and worked, but nowhere more so than on the farm where he lived with Kat. Although Rick trained and rode horses for many years, he deferred to Kat in matters of horsemanship. He was a gifted teacher in his own fields of expertise, and he recognized that a combination of his skills and Kat’s could make their Clatskanie farm the place of his dreams. In six short years they established CourseWalkers at Stewart Creek, a horse breeding and training facility where students are taught according to the principles of natural horsemanship, and encouraged to pursue excellence in everything they do. Rick and Kat believed in presenting positive life lessons through their work, and it was Rick’s greatest desire that Kat continue that work, with the help of many of those they taught and mentored over the years. Rick’s love of horses was the driving force in his advocacy for their humane treatment and a greater appreciation of their willingness to partner up with human beings, who so often neglect them, whether through ignorance or laziness, and take their uncomplaining service for granted. If, while driving by horses in a field, he saw
thing, Rick requested gift cards from Home Depot for the betterment of the farm. Condolences to CourseWalkers at Stewart Creek.

a need, he would simply turn in and introduce himself, initiate a discussion and offer to help, whether it was a matter of finding a farrier or providing veterinary care. He felt strongly that if he could find a way to make it easy for them to do so, most people were willing to do the right thing by their animals. His own horses, needless to say, were both healthy and happy, and he counted many of them his good friends. Over the years Rick rode hundreds of miles, often accompanied by friends, family, and his dogs, in some of the most beautiful places in Washington and Oregon: Mt. Adams; Fort Stevens; the northern end of the Oregon section of the Pacific Crest Trail; the Crooked River National Grasslands; the Tillamook State Forest; Mt. Hood; Eagle Cap Wilderness; Waldo Lake; Bob Straub State Park. Riding was a joy to him, and a way to be close to the natural world he treasured. He was not sentimental about nature; he believed it has lessons to teach us about respect and appreciation for the land, but he also knew that acquaintance with woods and fields and mountains, and appreciation for the wildlife within them, nurture the human spirit and are vital to our well being. Wanting others to discover and enjoy these things, he became a founding member of the Columbia County Chapter of Oregon Equestrian Trails, and spent hours developing and maintaining trails wherever he could. His horses were accustomed to carrying tools and waiting while he cut brush and sawed through fallen trees. Rick made service to others the watchword of his working life, and it was impossible to convince him that he did do enough, and often more then enough. He loved life, and he willingly embraced the hardships that came with being independent and free to live as he chose, and he will be remembered and honored for his courage, his fighting spirit, and his generosity. Rick is survived by his beloved wife, Katrin; his children from his first marriage to Liese Franz: son Calvin Katterman and daughter Samantha Katterman-Stekhuizen; grandchildren Noah, Elizabeth, Ayden, Ayron, and Tristan; sisters Linda Holladay, Sharon Miller, and DeeAnn Rolison; and brother Ronald Katterman. A funeral service will be held at 9 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, in recognition of Rick’s service in the U.S. Army and the Oregon National Guard. No flowers, please. Should you wish to send some-

GUN BAN: only school staff affected by policy From PAGE A1 out that this has been going on, unbeknownst to a great deal of us.” Policy GBJ does not prohibit other individuals from carrying weapons onto school grounds, which means a parent or anyone else visiting a school within the district to attend a football game, school play or parent-teacher conference is legally allowed to carry into that school. Former board member Alan King, who also attend the coalition protest, was one of three board members to vote in favor of the policy when it was passed last March. Kind would like to see wider sweeping changes made at the legislative level. “What we really need is not only this ban, but the state legislature to extend the authority of cities and counties to school districts. Cities and counties can ban weapons on their premises. It’s my understanding the city can ban anyone from taking a weapon to the sewage plant but the school board cannot ban ordinary citizens from bringing guns into the school,” said King.
BAND: not enough From PAGE A1 policies outlined in the Kennewick High School Handbook.” “I can’t really talk about it but I feel that everything in that letter is accurate,” said Freshner. The parent group members also said they believed the entire event was premeditated and planned in advance. “This is a horrible physical violation taken by the Kennewick Band Students and serious action must be taken. We want these students to be held accountable for their horrendous behavior as any violation of this kind must be dealt with before it happens again. We need to know that appropriate action for this misconduct will be taken,” the letter states. The parent group also noted than an email sent to Freshner from Kennewick High School Principal Van Cummings on Oct. 22 claimed this physical contact made by the Kennewick students has been going on for several years at similar competition and “has become a percussion section tradition” and that while the school does promote a no-tolerance policy for harassment, there was no further indication that any disciplinary measures were taken. “There are approximately 25 students willing to file a report with the St. Helens High Police Resource Officer in an ongoing investigation at St. Helens High School. This step is supported by both St. Helens High School and St. Helens School District Administrations,” says the parent group, adding that a total of 42 students reported direct contact with the Kennewick students between one and 15 times. “We have followed proper protocol and have been waiting to hear that this has been dealt with appropriately. It has been very disappointing that there has been no reporting of actions leading us to believe that no significant consequences were carried out. The token letter of apology, signed “Lion Marching Band,” is meaningless as it does not prove that anyone was held accountable. We require a response to this letter outlining the actions that have been and will be taken,” said the band patrons. St. Helens School District Superintended Mark Davalos said he has been in contact with the Kennewick school officials. “I have been in touch with the superintendent of couple of times and we are moving forward,” said Davalos. “I think they are trying to do everything the can within the law to respond, to investigate and to take appropriate actions.” The district’s school resource officer from the St. Helens Police Department has already begun conducting interviews with some of the local band students. Interviews have happened, but any crimes that have been committed, if there are any, would go to the Yakima Police,” said St. Helens Police Chief Terry Moss. “Our involvement is going to extend to talking to students and gathering information as a courtesy to the police officers or detectives in Yakima and then pass that off to them.”
Under Oregon statute, a Concealed Handgun License can be obtained through the county sheriff’s office. To obtain a license, the individual must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident; be 21 or older; not be a felon; cannot have been convicted or found guilty of a misdemeanor; have no outstanding warrants and must be able to demonstrate competence with a handgun. To demonstrate handgun competence, According to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office website, applicants can demonstrate handgun competence in any of the following ways: Completion of any NRA firearms safety or training course, if handgun safety was a component of the course. Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by law enforcement, community college, or private institution, or firearms training school utilizing instructors certified by the NRA; or law enforcement agency if handgun safety was a component of the course. Completion of any law enforcement firearm safety or training course offered for security guards, reserve law enforcement officers, investigators, or any other law enforcement officers if handgun safety was a component of the course. Presents evidence of equivalent experience with a handgun through participation in organized shooting competition or military service. Is licensed, or has been licensed, to carry a firearm in this state, unless license has been revoked. Completion of any firearms training or safety course, or class, conducted by a firearms instructor certified by a law enforcement agency or the NRA, if handgun safety was a component of the course. Individuals receiving a Concealed Handgun License will be fingerprinted and photographed. Of the $65 new applicant fee, $15 goes to covering the cost of a fingerprint background check.
REVIEW: PRC recommendations From PAGE A1 Police Chief Doug Greisen, for minor discrepancies of best practices, is entirely out of proportion based on the totality of the circumstances on the night of Feb. 4,” states an Oct. 14 report issued by the PRC. However, this doesn’t seem to be the end of the road for the investigation. There has been some suggestion that the PRC came into the process with a bias toward Griesen. To ensure the disciplinary actions taken received a full and impartial review, the city has now turned over the investigation to a third party. “The investigation is being reviewed by a former chief of police to see whether or not it was ‘prosecutorial,’” said Scappoose Mayor Scott Burge. According to Burge, under city code, the PRC reviews disciplinary action when the subject of the discipline requests it. “When Chief Greisen requested it, by code I was obligated to have it reviewed,” said Burge on why he formed the review committee. “The [Personal Review] Committee put in a lot of time and effort in their review.” At the heart of the allega-
tions and investigation is a police pursuit of Lawrence Bickmore, who fled the scene of an accident and led police in a pursuit through parts of Scappoose. At around 6:45 p.m., on Feb. 4, 2013, Scappoose Police Officer Anthony Miltich responded to a hitand-run accident at Havlik Drive and U.S. Highway 30. The suspect fled the scene, first traveling south on the highway and then doubling back through Scappoose, with Miltich in pursuit. Greisen joined in the pursuit and directed Miltich to use a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) to stop the suspect vehicle. The allegations filed by Scappoose Sgt. Doug Carpenter contend that neither of the police officers engaged in the pursuit had been trained to perform the PIT maneuver, that the maneuver was performed at approximately 50 mph, and that Miltich’s pursuit was for a misdemeanor offense – all in violation of the city’s policies – along with other procedural violations. “Based on these facts, I believe an internal investigation should be opened to further look into the facts of this case,” said Carpenter in a March 4 memo to Lt. Norman Miller. LGPI’s investigation
sustained all of the allegations made against Greisen. After reviewing LGPI’s finding, City Manager Jon Hanken placed Greisen on paid administrative leave. However, after reviewing the same information provided to LGPI, the PRC members finding were far different. “The PRC believes Chief Greisen made the right judgment call, based on the best available information at the time, and in light of the potential deadly consequences to motorists and pedestrians that night… the PRC views the issue involved here to be primarily one of a policy and training issue, not a safety issue,” said the report. The report goes on to state that LGPI not only mischaracterized events but purposely omitted pertinent details and information related to the Feb. 4 incident. “The LGPI report was not an objective review, but a prosecutorial document that was colored to arrive at a predetermined result. Based on these findings, the PRC considers the LPGI report null and void, untrustworthy and has decided to ignore its prejudiced findings in their entirety,” said the PRC. During its investigation, the PRC members reviewed
the complaints filed by Sgt. Doug Carpenter and Lt. Norman Miller, as well as the police reports and supporting documentation, LGPI’s report, the notice of disciplinary action and the notice of appeal filed by Greisen. The committee also watched the patrol car video recording and listened to the audio recording from the incident. “With his erratic driving and dangerously unpredictable behavior, Mr. Bickmore created a dangerous night-time environment in and around the city of Scappoose which the responding Scappoose police officers determined presented an unreasonable and foreseeable risk of harm to Mr. Bickmore, other motorists and the general public as well,” states the PRC. Along with retracting the disciplinary action against Greisen, the PRC recommended additional training be provided to the chief and all officers within the police department. Under the city’s municipal code, it will be up to City Manager Jon Hanken to decide if the PRC’s recommendations are accepted and put into place or if LGPI’s earlier finding will remain as is. Calls to Jon Hanken have not been returned.

TRANSIT: Route changes coming
change in the first stop of the day at the Columbia Commons. In order to keep the route times the same and cause less disruption for riders, the St. Helens to Portland and St. Helens to PCC/Willow Creek routes will no longer stop at Columbia Commons. The South Flex Route will continue to stop at Columbia Commons, however CCRider has changed some of the stops in the schedule to ensure the route stays on time and can still meet
riders’ needs. The St. Helens to Portland and St. Helens to PCC routes will continue to stop at the Warren Baptist Church and in Scappoose an additional stop has been added to the schedules for those needing to get on and off at Fred Meyer. CCRider staff has already begun the process of educating riders about the upcoming changes. “We’re putting out flyers in the shelters, we’re getting flyers out to our drivers and we will
be putting the information up on website,” said Wright. “I’ve even been sending out Tweets about the new transit center.” Wright said she realizes some people may have difficulties with eliminating the Columbia Commons stop, but believes the advantages of the new center will outweigh those issues. Some of the main advantages of the new transit center park-n-ride are a safer and more convenient location. Wright said the new location is well lit, has a public restroom and 24-7 security
monitoring for vehicles parked in the park-n-ride lot. Riders can get information about the CCRider system and also purchase tickets and passes at the site Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CCRider is encouraging riders wanting to see the site and park-n-ride prior to the official opening to stop by and get a tour of the site. Revised schedules will be available at the CCRider Transit Center and online at ColumbiaCountyRider.com or call 503-366-0159.

No. 3 St. Helens 3, Mountain View 2
St. Helens wins five-set thriller Lions advance to state tournament at Liberty High School by beating Mountain View Cougars 25-15, 25-10, 18-25, 23-25, 19-17 BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
ST. HELENS — The St. Helens Lions are headed to Liberty High School. The third-ranked Lions (20-3) won an emotionally draining and physically exhausting five-set thriller over the visiting Mountain View Cougars (11-14) on Nov. 2 in the first round of the OSAA 5A State Championships. That sets up a quarterfinal match at 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 8 against the sixth-ranked Willamette Wolverines (15-5) of Eugene. Early on in the Lions’ home playoff match, it looked like a sweep of the Cougars was in the cards. St. Helens dominated the first two sets 2515 and 25-10. “Well the first two games we passed well, you could see by the scores,” said St. Helens coach Tom Ray. The Lions blitzed the Cougars from the get-go in the second set. Senior Kylie Reinholdt served up nine straight points for St. Helens before Mountain View had a chance to serve. When the Cougars did serve, they weren’t able to make much happen. St. Helens senior Gabby Susee had 11 of her team-high 23 kills in the first two sets. Eight of junior Taylor Albertson’s 15 kills were in games one and two. In the third set, however, Mountain View turned things around. A re-energized Cougar team dropped several aces into the middle of the Lions’ defense in the third set. Mountain View also made it a point to pass the ball cross-court more frequently, which left St. Helens CROSS COUNTRY

scrambling on defense. “The second two games we quit talking, so we’ve got to fix that. Did you notice they just got real quiet on
the court? When they’re fired up they play well,” Ray said. “Hey I don’t care; a win’s a win. That team played really well. Mountain View played a
really good match.” The Cougars scored the first five points of the fourth set. Mountain View evened the match at two sets

for that matter,” said Scappoose coach David Harley. There was a sizeable gap between Davidson and the next Scappoose runner, junior Rachel Bode.
Bode finished 57th out of 102 entries with a time of 22:05. The next three SHS runners – freshman Emily Marquardt, senior Lindsey Marquardt and sophomore Hanna
Sleightam – all crossed the finish line within 30 seconds of one another. Running as a close group was a focus for both the boys and girls entering the race. “They were trying to run more as a pack and did a pretty good job of that, and the boys were hoping to be able to do more of that also,” Harley said. “Having some confidence at doing that is huge and I think it developed over the season and should be improved next season.” Junior Dan Carrier had the best finish for the Tribe boys. He was 15th out of 105 individuals with a time of 16:54. Siuslaw senior Mitchell Butler won the race in 15:37. Senior Hunter Hoyt and sophomore Mason Reardon finished close to each other. Hoyt was 47th in 17:46 and Reardon was 54th in 17:58. The next pair of Indians to finish was junior Stephen Gift, finishing 71st in 18:24, and junior Jacob Harley, finishing 78th in 18:33. “The boys improved in some individual efforts this season through hard work and summer training, so there are certainly positive in that See INDIANS, Page A14
No. 7 North Bend 7, Scappoose 2
Smith, Flanagan score in play-in defeat NORTH BEND — An early lead for the visiting Scappoose Indians (49-2, 4-4-2) may have taken the No. 7 North Bend Bulldogs by surprise. If it didn’t surprise them, it certainly agitated the ’Dogs. After Scappoose junior Trevor Smith gave the Tribe a 1-0 lead, the Bulldogs scored six straight goals during the teams’ play-in match. North Bend went on to win, 7-2. For the first 15 minutes of the Nov. 2 match, North Bend played on the offensive. The Bulldogs were in the Indians’ third of the field the whole time, but never managed to get a shot on goal. After that charge, Scappoose moved the ball upfield. Senior Jesus Martinez – the only holdover from the Tribe’s last postseason appearance in 2010 – assisted Smith for the goal. “Jesus Martinez got it to the touch line, put a short cross in to Trevor
Smith, who stomped it out of the air with the bottom of his foot and the ball tapped off the inside of the post and into the back of the net,” said Scappoose coach Scott Stanton. “It was beautiful.” Stanton said one of the things his squad has focused on all season is maintaining its focus following stoppages in play. “The boys were clearly pumped that they were up a goal, but we never went into detail as to why it was crucial to stay focused after a restart. Main reason being when you play a team ranked higher than you, they will not be happy they’re down a goal, So, they’re going to throw everything but the kitchen sink at you,” Stanton said. “They did.” After three minutes, North Bend tied the match. A chip shot over the Scappoose goalkeeper made it 2-1. A penalty kick later in the first half hurt the Indians two-fold. It made the

2013 4A State Championship Meet
EUGENE — The 4A cross country coaches know what they’re talking about. In their final poll of the season – released Oct. 29 – they voted La Salle as the No. 1 boys team and Molalla as the No. 1 girls team: Both schools won state titles on Nov. 2. Those same coaches had the Scappoose High School boys as the No. 9 team in the state. The Indians finished ninth at the 2013 OSAA 4A State Cross Country Championships. The Tribe girls, however, proved to be a bit better than the coaches predicted. The SHS girls were voted as the No. 12 team. They moved up to finish tenth at the state meet. Senior Charlie Davidson had the best individual finish among the SHS runners by placing tenth in the girls race. Davidson finished in 19:40 – 17 seconds faster than she ran last year, when she finished seventh. Marshfield senior Shaylen Crook won the race in 18:28. “Charlie had a great season and is clearly one of the elite distance runners in 4A and in the entire state

score 3-1, and it also knocked freshman defender Kevin Bachman out of the game with a leg injury. It was the first time this season he left the field. North Bend added a fourth goal before halftime. Two more Bulldog scores had Scappoose behind 6-1 about 15 minutes into the second half. With six minutes left, senior Asa Flanagan scored his 10th goal of the season. “He picked the pocket of their center mid, dribbled two players, avoided a tackle from behind from the kid he stole the ball off, played a simple give-go pass with Jesus, who popped the ball up in the air back towards Asa,” Stanton said. “Asa controlled it out of the air with his left foot, a sublime first touch set him up perfectly for a right-footed strike in some wide open space eight yards from goal.” When the Indians brought another
defender up to attack, the Bulldogs scored on a counterattack with a minute left in the match. With a team made up of primarily underclassmen, playing in the postseason will be a big help going forward. It was also a great send-off for the senior class. “I think the experience alone, even for the seniors, was huge. They will never forget how they made it to the postseason their senior year, got to stay in a hotel, played at a nice facility with a jumbotron, dined out, all that good stuff,” Stanton said. “And for the rest of the squad, the guys I’ll have back next year, they’ve done it now. They’ve experienced the hype, had the experience, and I think this will help calm any nerves they may have when we make the postseason next year. “Though our goal for next year is a home playoff game,” he said. – Kyle Boggs

And, based on what McNabb and company saw while watching Elmira beat Mazama (5-5, 3-2 Skyline) 4224 in the play-in round on Nov. 1, the Indians will spend much of their time preparing to stop Highburger. “He caught a touchdown pass, ran one in, scored on an interception return against Mazama. I’ve seen him return a couple kickoffs for touchdowns as well. He’s definitely the guy we gotta take away,” McNabb said. In addition to good size, Highburger has good speed as well. He ran the 100 meters in 11.3 seconds last spring. His coaches tend to move him around the formation. Elmira primarily runs a wing-T offense similar to what Scappoose saw from Seaside. “Once in a while they’ll get in spread, line him up at wide receiver. See SCAPPOOSE, Page A15

No. 3 Scappoose 5, Tillamook 2
Indians win after strange start
BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
SCAPPOOSE — A strange series of events during the first three minutes of an Oct. 29 match left spectators at Chinook Field scratching their heads and wondering what was going on. Eventually the confusion dissipated and the No. 3 Scappoose Indians (11-3, 100) gave their home crowd what they’re more used to: a 5-2 win over the visiting Tillamook Cheesemakers (211-1, 0-9-1). A ceremonious start for injured goalkeeper Alix Raya on Senior Night played a part in the strange twist the match took from the opening kickoff. Raya, who suffered a concussion in the first match of the season, started and was set to leave the field immediately. “We had a deal with these guys – we’ll kick off, we’ll give you the ball back, they kick the ball out,” said Scappoose coach Nick Heffernan. Then, once the ball was out of bounds, sophomore Jessica Dykes would sub in for Raya. In return for Tillamook kicking the ball out of bounds, Scappoose would pass the ball straight to the THS goalkeeper and the game would carry on.
KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle
Scappoose sophomore Madison Verzino scored the team’s fifth goal against Tillamook last week.
Except there was some miscommunication along the SHS sideline. When the ball was thrown in, Scappoose crossed the ball in front of the goal and tapped in an easy score. After the game, Heffernan said there was some confusion on the play and several players were unsure what they were supposed to do.

“Some of them didn’t understand, some of them forgot. They threw it to us... we scored,” Heffernan said. In response, he instructed his team to let Tillamook even the match. “I apologized to the coach,” Heffernan said. The coach then called over junior defender and team captain Emily Muth to
tell her to let Tillamook score a goal. During Heffernan and Muth’s conversation, Scappoose scored another goal. On the ensuing kickoff, Tillamook took an uncontested shot while Dykes kept her hands behind her back and watched the ball go over her head, into the net. After the match was at 21, things got back to normal. It didn’t take long for Scappoose to answer Tillamook’s goal. Ten seconds later, sophomore Natalie Muth scored – making the score 31 just three minutes into the match. Tillamook closed the match to 3-2 with 11 minutes to go in the first half. Midway through the second half, sophomore Lucy Davidson scored on an assist from sophomore Lauren Frank. Sophomore Madison Verzino put in the Tribe’s fifth goal on a high-arcing 30-yard shot. Scappoose had its first playoff match at home on Nov. 5 against the Cascade Cougars (8-4, 6-2). To see results and photos from that game, go to thechronicleonline.com. The winner of the Scappoose-Cascade playoff match will play on Nov. 9 against either North Valley (10-4-1, 7-3) or No. 6 Gladstone (11-1-2, 8-1-1).

The Indian boys had hoped to take home a trophy, and, despite her second-team All-State performance, Davidson had higher individual aspirations going into the meet. “They were disappointed in some respects. Obviously when you set goals and don’t quite get there it is going to be disappointing in some way. The important thing for them to remember is to take the whole season into context and not let one race, good or bad, define success for you,” Harley said. “When Charlie and the boys get a chance to do that and reflect on that a bit I think it will help their perspective quite a bit.” Carrier was a third-team All-State runner in 2013. “I really think the girls came a long way from where they were back in August and got better each week. They are very young in terms of varsity expe-
rience and getting to state was huge in their continual development as distance runners,” he said. “Both teams can be proud of another strong season – maybe not the ending like last season with a trophy and topfive finish, but still a significant accomplishment nonetheless.” TEAM SCORES Boys 1, La Salle 54. 2, Siuslaw 89. 3, Phoenix 126. 4, Marshfield 135. 5, Tillamook 150. 6, Philomath 151. 7, Sisters 205. 8, Newport 207. 9, Scappoose 218. 10, Crook County 234. 11, Baker 258. 12, North Marion 274. 13, Sweet Home 285.

Putnam 3, St. Helens 1
Second-half slip-up hurts again ST. HELENS — A challenging season came to an end for the St. Helens Lions boys soccer team (0-13, 0-7) on Oct. 29. After taking a 1-0 lead in the first half, the Lions dropped a 3-1 match to the Putnam Kingsmen (6-7-1, 42-1). The Lions went ahead in the 33rd minute when junior Ivan Alcazar headed in a cross from freshman Tyler Cooper. But down the stretch, things unfolded the way they have many times this season and St. Helens saw Putnam pull away in the second half. In all seven league matches, the score has either been 0-0 or 1-0 at the half. But the Lions lost all seven. “Throughout the season, we were able to compete with every team in our league for CROSS COUNTRY
the first 40 minutes. And (Tuesday) was no different,” said St. Helens coach Oscar Monteblanco. “The second half of the games have been a nightmare for us. To put it kindly, we had the tendency to panic. And when we panic, we settled for long balls,” Monteblanco said. The coach said defenders Justin Pense, Paul Lobaugh, Victor Omboke and Ryan Ward formed a solid backline, and that sophomore goalkeeper Beau Mason had a good season. “The strength of our team was our defense the entire season,” Monteblanco said. “However, no matter how well we played on the back, we can’t win a game without scoring and this was the story KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle of our season.” St. Helens junior Ivan Alcazar gains control of the ball against Putnam – Kyle Boggs last week.

He finished 41st out of 94 runners with a time of 17:03. Strang finished at the back of a tight pack of runners. Seven athletes crossed the finish line within four GIRLS SOCCER
seconds of each other. Summit High School’s Matthew Maton won the race with a time of 14:59. Maton owns the fastest 5K time for any high school runner in the United States in 2013. His time of 14:32 at the George Fox Classic last month is 10 seconds better than any other prep runner in the nation has run this year. His 14:59 time
was four seconds off the state meet record, set in 2003 by 2012 Olympic silver medalist Galen Rupp. This was Strang’s third trip to the state meet. He has improved his time every year. This season he ran two seconds faster than last year, when he placed 27th. – Kyle Boggs
No. 9 Putnam 2, St. Helens 0
St. Helens finishes one spot out of the postseason BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
MILWAUKIE — The ninth-ranked Putnam Kingsmen (5-4-4, 5-1-1) brought the St. Helens Lions’ (4-8-2, 1-5-1) season to an end with a 2-0 win on Oct. 29. The Lions finished the season ranked 25th in the OSAA Power Rankings; the top 24 teams advance to the 5A play-in round. “Being No. 25, ironically, sums up every game we had. We just missed the end-goal by a tiny bit. Every game we lost (with the exception of a few) was down to one or two mistakes,” said St. Helens coach Simon Date. “It makes it sting that much more, but in the end, we didn’t make play-ins and when you lose to five of the seven teams in your own league, you can’t
expect to get there.” For the first half against the Kingsmen, the Lions kept things in check. The two teams went into halftime tied 0-0. “We had a great first half and came in at halftime talking about not making any mental errors. Physically, we were more than capable of hanging with them, so we just had to stay sharp,” Date said. The Lions managed only one shot on goal in the first half, but it was denied. Meanwhile St. Helens sophomore goalkeeper Athena Duggan kept a handful of Putnam shots from getting into the net. “Athena made a few saves that kept us in it, with one of them being an outstanding stop in the last few seconds of the first half,” Date said. But Putnam managed two scores in the second half to
take the win. “Disappointing to say the least. After a fantastic September, culminating with a No. 1 rank early on, we have slowly declined. A part of that has to be attributed to injuries to key players, and other school commitments, which have prevented us from fielding our best lineup each game, but overall we simply weren’t good enough down the stretch,” Date said. “I had a huge belief in this team and am disappointed only because we didn’t make the play-in round.” Putnam is one of five Northwest Oregon Conference teams to reach the first round of the state playoffs. Parkrose (7-6-1, 3-3-1), Liberty (7-8, 4-3), No. 3 Wilsonville (10-3-1, 6-1) and No. 2 Sherwood (10-2-2, 5-11) are the other NWOC teams still in the round of 16.

Senior starting quarterback Taylor Loss will be back in the lineup, as will senior starting linebacker Lionel Sandoval. Both players sat out the Tribe’s regular season finale with injuries. “We should be full strength. The kids are excited to be at home,” McNabb said. The team took Friday off from practice. Other than that, McNabb said they tried to run practice the same as any other week. The only big
difference was that Scappoose didn’t know during the week who its opponent would be. That allowed the Indians to focus on improving in certain areas more than on game-planning for a specific opponent. “We worked on some pass coverage, some of our passing game, our run game stuff,
spent more time on our special teams,” McNabb said. The winner of Friday’s game will advance to the state quarterfinals to face either No. 9 Cascade (7-3, 3-2 Oregon West) or No. 7 North Bend (8-1, 6-0) on Nov. 15. At 47.3 points per game, North Bend is the highestscoring team in 4A.

It was hard to avoid superlatives while writing my game story from Saturday night. Put simply, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more excitKyle Boggs ing volleyball match. The first two sets were far from exciting. It looked like it was going to be a quick, three-set affair, like so many other St. Helens wins this year. That alone was enough to surprise me. With a 4 p.m. match on a Saturday, I had a suspicion SHHS would start off slow. For me, Saturday was a tough enough day hanging out around the house waiting for the game to begin. To be playing in it, it seems like it’d be way harder. Athletes, for the most part, are creatures of habit. You get a routine, you stick with it. For example, every game day when I was in high school – football or baseball – it was Eggos for breakfast, topped with peanut butter (creamy, of course) and syrup. (Except one time we went out for a team breakfast at a local restaurant and all of us got sick. We didn’t do that again.) This season, the Lions have played most of their games at 6:45 after a day of school. Then they’d watch the JV team play, get ready and win their match. On tournament days, they start at 8 or 9 on Saturdays, so there’s no sense of waiting around. It sounds like the team pretty much felt the same way I did. “I was really excited all day. We all kinda got here early. It’s hard to play at 4 when we usually play at 6 after school. We were all sitting around excited waiting,” said Kylie Reinholdt. But whatever jitters there
may have been went away quickly. Mountain View served to start the match, St. Helens scored first to go up 1-0. The Lions won that opening set 25-15. In the second set, Kylie served nine straight points to open the match with the Lions up 9-0. Then Mountain View made a couple of adjustments, St. Helens quit talking and didn’t pass as well, and the Cougars made a game of it. Still, in the fourth set there was a sense the Lions would come back and win it. I could feel it on the sidelines, coach Tom Ray said he and assistant coach Len Robison felt it too. “Fourth game we thought if we could tie it, we’d win it. Fifth game we thought if we could tie it we’d win it. Len was right, he said that,” Ray said afterward. When Madison Kaplan dropped an ace to make it 2324 in the fourth set, I was ready to see the Lions rattle off three more points. They didn’t, however, and it was on to a win-or-go-home fifth set. The last set was a challenge. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to focus my attention on getting pictures of the bench reacting (because that was great) of the players playing (because that was exciting) or the players on the court reacting (because that was great). I ended up doing kind of a mixture of the three… while also trying to pay attention to what exactly was happening during play so I could jot it down. That fifth set was awesome to watch. Flat out, a ton of fun. To the parents, maybe more stressful than fun. But you could tell there was extra focus over those last several points. The passes were precise. The sets went a little bit higher, to ensure there was a little more time for the hitters to pound the ball. There was lots of talking. The body language
exuded confidence: There wasn’t a moment when it looked like the Lions would let this win and trip to the state tournament slip away. “To win 19-17, we were down I don’t know how many times we came back and won that. That’s a true champion,” Ray said. It was three times. Mountain View served ahead 1514, but St. Helens got a sideout. Mountain View served for the match again at 16-15. St. Helens got another sideout. The Cougars served again with a trip to Liberty on the line at 17-16. The Lions answered the call again. Tied 17-17, Hailee Fischer stepped to the line. Chances are she was nervous – who wouldn’t be – but she didn’t let it show. It was business as usual. Logan Kalauli came up big over those last two points and her kill set off a celebration four years in the making — the last time the Lions reached the state tourney at Liberty was 2009. That year’s team was a senior-dominated group with Brooke Nolte, Emily Monroe, Kali Smith, Kailey Sound and McKinleigh Crandall all earning All-League honors. St. Helens didn’t win at Liberty that year, dropping matches to Ashland and Thurston. If the grit and determination they showed in the fifth set Saturday was indication, this team certainly won’t go quietly. A win at 3:15 against Willamette guarantees them a trophy – which was one of the team’s two goals prior to the season. The other – winning league – is already in the rearview mirror. It won’t be easy. It might be stressful. Chances are, it will certainly be entertaining. But for the sake of the coach’s sanity, a three-game sweep would probably work too.

St. Helens seniors Krista Hardy (15) and Gabby Susee (7) get their hands on a hit from Mountain View during a Nov. 2 state playoff match.
Three different times the Cougars stepped to the service line a point away from ending the match. Three different times, the Lions found a way to force a sideout to stave off elimination. “To win 19-17, we were down I don’t know how many times we came back and won that. That’s a true champion,” Ray said. With the score knotted at 17, St. Helens junior Hailee Fischer stepped to the service line. The Cougars couldn’t re-
turn Kalauli’s hit inbounds, giving the Lions a one-point lead. Again Fischer served, and again Mountain View couldn’t return Kalauli’s attack. It was her tenth kill of the night, and it sent St. Helens to Liberty for the state tournament. “It was so much relief because we were all so tired and we were all working so hard. You can’t help but cry tears of happiness. It’s just an awesome feeling,” Kalauli said. She wasn’t the only one

Indians’ season ends in Estacada
BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
ESTACADA — Based on their scores in two matches this season against the Estacada Rangers (16-7, 7-3), it’s clear to see the Scappoose Indians (11-10, 6-4) made some big strides over the last six weeks. The Tribe lost to the Rangers 25-4, 25-14, 23-25, 25-9 on Sept. 11 in a nonleague match. When the two teams met again in the play-in round on Oct. 29, Estacada still won in four sets, but they were four far more competitive sets. Estacada advanced to the OSAA 4A State Championships by beating Scappoose 25-16, 25-19, 20-25, 25-19. “I am very proud of this

group. We have come a long way this season,” said Scappoose coach Mark Sprenger. The Indians got off to a slow start but then picked it up after the first set. “We played well in games two, three and four. We made too many mistakes at critical times,” Sprenger said. “I told the girls we must outplay them defensively and I think we did that.” Senior Abby Kessi led the Indians with a season-high 15 blocks. She also had 10 kills. “I give Estacada a lot of credit as well. Both teams played well and it was an exciting match despite the loss. Abby Kessi really played well,” Sprenger said. The Indians finished the season 11-10. Scappoose was 6-4 in the Cowapa League for the second straight season.

shedding a tear after the win. “It’s really awesome because we’re going to the state tournament now. We’re all really excited. We all cried, even though we won. We’re just that excited. It’s awesome to get a home win so we can have an opportunity to be state champions,” Reinholdt said. Their first shot at stepping closer toward that goal comes at 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 8 at Liberty High School in Hillsboro. If the Lions beat the Wolverines, they will play later that night at 8:30 p.m. at Liberty. The loser of the quarterfinal match plays at 10 a.m. on Nov. 9. Susee and Albertson each finished with four block kills. Senior Kali Moore had 11 kills and Fischer had 18 assists.

“That always happens, all the time. We go into the third game thinking that we’re gonna take it easily. It always bites us in the butt,” said sophomore Logan Kalauli. “But I’m really proud for my team, for all my teammates I have. I’m lucky to be on a team with all of them. I’m privileged, I really am.” The momentum had clearly swung in Mountain View’s favor after the fourth set. But the Lions found a way to swing it back their way early in the fifth set, getting out to a 6-3 lead. “It’s hard when we’re down trying to get everyone picked back up but we have to all come together and know what goals we have and just pursue the ball all the time,” said Reinholdt, who finished the match with 30 assists and two aces. But the Cougars weren’t ready to go quietly. Mountain View rallied for a 7-6 lead. After that, the two teams exchanged point after point, refusing to give an inch. “It’s hard to say, but you definitely put more effort in if it’s a game like this. Games like these you definitely try your hardest, you play your hardest. It’s just awesome,” said Kalauli.
