February storms blow through the county BY SHARI PHIEL

The back to back storms that moved through the Pacific Northwest starting last Thursday packed quite a punch and Columbia County was no exception. Snow totals across the county ranged from 10 to 13 inches, leaving school districts, government agencies and many businesses closed, and roads slippery and snow packed. According to Northwest Weather Consultants, the four-day snow total at the Portland airport was the highest total for snow in February in 25 years. As it’s only the middle of the month, more snow isn’t out of the question. “Arctic air from the north and Pacific moisture from the west came together directly over Oregon and dumped quite a bit of snow over the region. This continues the pattern of significant winter snowstorms every five or so years in Portland,” said NWC’s Steve Pierce Pierce also said there is a trend with almost no snow for several winters, then a big snowfall, then no snow for a few more winters. Rinse and repeat every five or so years. “This past week was a classic example of nearly the perfect snowfall setup for Portland / Vancouver and the Willamette Valley,” Pierce added. ­­­­ See STORM, Page A4

Scappoose Post Office may be added to historic registry BY DON PATTERSON

SCAPPOOSE — The U. S. Postal Service building in Scappoose may soon be added to the National Register of Historic Places. A consulting firm in Portland has nominated the 48-yearold building to the registry as an example of the Modern style of architecture. The building belongs to the federal government.

The post office opened in February 1966 and is a good example of a one-story Modern era building. It is constructed of reinforced concrete and covered with a flat asphalt roof. The 4,516-squarefoot building sits on a city block and was designed by the Portland architecture firm of Stanton, Boles, Maguire and Church. The Sentinel Mist reported its estimated cost at $125,000 in 1965.

The application states, “Architecturally and func-

tionally, little has changed at the Scappoose Post Office in five decades that follow. The property continues in its original use, serving the Scappoose community.” There are dozens of post office buildings similar to the one in Scappoose throughout Oregon. Post offices in Myrtle Creek, LaGrande, Florence, Albany and Portland’s Creston station are all examples of Modern style.

Anyone may apply for inclusion of a property on the historic register, but privately owned properties must have the owner’s permission to be considered. In the case of a public-owned property, such as the Scappoose location, the applicant is encouraged to work closely with the governmental body involved. The Scappoose post office is included in a multiple property application, also filed by Heritage Consulting Group in Portland. The nomination seeks to have

postal facilities identified in a 2012 study by URS Corporation on behalf of the Untied States Postal Service that were built between 1940 and 1971 added to the registry. The Oregon State Advisory committee on Historic Preservation will meet on Feb. 20 and 21 to consider the nomination. If the committee accepts the nomination it is referred to the Keeper of Records of the National List for final approval.

Jail levy likely to be placed on upcoming May ballot BY SHARI PHIEL

It looks like the county may be taking another run at getting a jail levy on the May ballot after all. Although the county commissioners had originally wanted a citizens’ initiative to take the lead on the ballot measure, growing community support could convince them to take on the task. “We’re encouraged by the fact that people are finally realizing that we are planning for a closure,” said County Commissioner Henry Heimuller. The county, along with Sheriff Jeff Dickerson, have held three summit meetings, two of which included public meetings. The most recent was in Clatskanie, while the other two were in St. Helens. “We’ve got people calling and coming out to the public meetings to see and hear what people are saying and now those folks are going out to their neighbors,” said Heimuller. The county commissioner isn’t the only one encouraged by citizen turnout. St. Helens resident Randy Sanders is among a handful of local citizens working to gather enough signatures to convince the county commissioners to put the levy on the upcoming ballot. “I’m encouraged. We set up a Facebook page and a website at columbiacounty-

SHARI PHIEL / The Chronicle

After suffering defeat at the ballot box last year, Columbia County commissioners may be ready to reintroduce a ballot measure that would provide funding for the county jail. and we’re getting a lot of responses. I‘ve been trying to get on there constantly and defending the position of the jail levy… I’m very positive about this,” Sanders said. Several petitions are being circulated in person and online. Sanders and others hope to be able to present those petitions to the commissioners and convince them a levy could work despite being defeated previously. “There are basically three sides to this. You’ve got the response that the Columbia

County budget can pay for this and they just need to find it. That’s just not true. The money is not there. I put the county budget online and I welcome people to have at it. Then there are the folks that say that the sheriff has the money and he just needs to run the jail better. Anyone who knows that sheriff knows that is not true either,” Sanders added. Fellow St. Helens resident Susan Conn has also been working to get citizens on board with the levy. Although Conn is a member of the St. Helens City Council,

she says her work on the levy is a personal issue, not something she is doing on behalf of the city. “One of the things we hope to do is get bring more focus to what the consequences of not having a jail will be and what it will do not only to the sheriff’s office, but also to local cities and the entire judicial system,” Conn said. She adds that residents have to get past old resentments and “perceived mistakes” to move forward. “Holding the levy hostage because of personal

grudges against a particular commissioner or the sheriff will just be another case of cutting off our nose to spite our face. We are faced with the prospect of serious repercussions if we close the jail, and people need to know what can result. This affects every citizen in the county and the hope is that each of them will give some thought to how this could affect them,” she said. Sanders said those residents who think the jail isn’t already running

Pickup truck sustains damage in fire SCAPPOOSE On Saturday, Feb. 8, a neighbor called 9-1-1 to report a vehicle on fire. Scappoose Fire District personnel responded and found a full sized pick-up truck with fire coming from engine and passenger compartments. The owner said the neighbor saw the truck had flames coming out of grill / radiator area from the window of his house. The neighbor then ran down with a fire extinguisher to try and put out fire but

could not open the hood to get to engine compartment so he sprayed extinguisher into the grill. The owner told fire officials he had last driven the truck a couple hours prior to the fire. The owner had plugged the diesel truck block heater into an electrical source and did notice some arcing and changed the extension cord. The cause is reported to be failure or equipment or heat source.

Calling all dogs! Dog park grand opening Feb. 22 COLUMBIA CITY — The grand opening of the new off-leash dog park in Columbia City will take place on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 10 a.m. The new dog park is located on “E” Street between Highway 30 and Second Street. “We always try to listen to our citizens’ concerns,” said Mayor Cheryl Young. “With help from the Port of St. Helens and the Columbia County Community Corrections Crew, we are now able to provide this additional service.” The fully fenced dog park encompasses ½-acre of open grassy field divided into two areas: one for large dogs and one for small dogs. The park features a picnic table, park bench, waste stations, double gates, specific rules for dogs and their owners, some shade,

and (of course) a fire hydrant. Dog owners should bring their own water for their dogs. The grand opening will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Special recognition will be given to the Columbia County Community Corrections Crew and the Port of St. Helens for their help and partnership in this project, and to the Columbia City Parks Committee for seeing this project through to fruition. The Columbia Humane Society will also be bringing adoptable pets to the event. Shannon Fitzgibbons, Parks Committee Chair, originally planted the seed for this idea, noting, “Dogs are man’s best friend and I felt Columbia City should have a park for them. I think dog parks are a coming trend and every town should have one.”

STORM: winter leaves its mark From PAGE A1

It all began on Thursday as cold arctic air swept down from Canada. With it came increasing snowfall and within just a few hours of its arrival much of the county was buried under 4 to 6 inches of the white stuff, making for a difficult commute home. By 4 p.m., traffic was backed up nearly a mile on Highway 30 from the intersection at Gable Road in St. Helens. Other intersections throughout the county had similar delays. Emergency personnel respond Crews from Scappoose Fire District responded to a number of traffic-related calls, most of those being on Highway 30. Deputies from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office responded to nearly a dozen calls for traffic accidents and abandoned or disabled vehicle reports. But St. Helens drivers seemed to be spared the worse of it. “For as much snow as we got and as fast as we got it, there was really nothing out of the ordinary,” said Columbia River Fire & Rescue Division Chief Ron Youngberg. “We average 11 calls a day. On Thursday we had 17, Friday we had less than our average, Saturday we had 18 calls and Sunday we had six.” The most significant accident in the county occurred in Columbia City near the intersection of U.S. Highway 30 and L Street when a 2002 Ford F-150 and a 1993 Toyota Forerunner collided. The driver of the Forerunner was transported by ambulance to a Portland-area hospital. Snow days plague school districts The winter weather also meant more snow days for area school districts to deal with. Schools across the county closed early on Thursday, most sending students home around noon. St. Helens, Scappoose, Clatskanie, Rainier and Vernonia school

districts remained closed on Friday and Monday. Weekend activities and sporting activities were canceled as well. It wasn’t until Tuesday until things returned to normal, although all school districts had a two-hour late start. “We’ve managed to keep open enough that we still get funded but the concern is having enough student contact time,” said Scappoose Superintendent Stephen Jupe. “We had to cancel our board meeting on Monday night but we’re recommending to make up two days.” For the 2013-14 school year so far, Scappoose has lost 5 ½ days to the weather. The school board meeting, which will include a discussion on making up those two days, has been rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m. Courthouse closes early County offices, along with the local courts and the state courts closed early on Thursday, with only essential personnel remaining at the courthouse after the noon closing. Although the courthouse was again closed on Friday, it was a regular furlough day for employees. However, both state and county courts were again closed. The courts were reopened on Monday, after a two-hour late start. “We had a late start this morning because of the freezing rain. So we just pushed the courts off until 10 a.m.,” said County Commissioner Henry Heimuller. “Just enough to hopefully let things thaw a little bit.” Perhaps the biggest impact to the county was the additional work for road crews. With the onset of the storm, crews were out getting roads plowed and laying down gravel on particularly difficult areas. J.P West Road in the Scappoose foothills was closed over the weekend after icy roads resulted in several fender benders. “They’re basically out there 24/7 during an event

like that. There’s always a financial and manpower impact there,” said Heimuller. “Our parks department also had a little bit of an impact because they have to go out and make sure no branches fall down and block roads, bathrooms at the parks are aren’t broken or have frozen pipes, things like that.” Canceled, delayed or rescheduled Parks commission: The St. Helens Parks Commission canceled its meeting scheduled for Feb. 10. The meeting will not be rescheduled. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be held Monday, March 17 at 4 p.m., in council chambers at city hall. Anyone wanting to participate or attend the meeting and is in need special accommodations should contact city hall at 503-397-6272 in advance of the meeting.

Garbage collection: Both Hudson Garbage and Waste Management had delayed pickups on several days. Hudson customers who were scheduled to have their garbage/recycling picked up on Monday had their garbage picked up on Tuesday. Those scheduled for Tuesday will be picked up on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Hudson crews will be doing double duty to get caught up, so, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are regular pick-up days.

Letters Prudent use A few years ago, the people of Columbia County agreed to be taxed in order to establish a hospital in the St. Helens area. To my knowledge, the county folks received nothing in return for their investment. I read that, when the newly elected Columbia Health District board took office to finally shut off the flow of taxpayer funds and return the monies to the taxpayers, the paper trail had disappeared. Even the auditor was unable to get supporting documentation to perform a decent audit of the 2010–11 records. Although they were asked to get involved, none of our elected county officials were willing to force the issue to establish whether the funds were even managed responsibly. They didn’t bother to respond to my request and I’ve never heard any of them explain their lack of action. I thought certainly someone at the county level would jump on this issue, but not. In fact, if memory serves, we were told the remaining county funds collected were given to the City of St. Helens. Now the county wants more money and these same county commissioners are the ones asking for more money. The people have spoken many times on this jail funding issue and the heightened level of drama isn’t going to change my mind. Our commissioners might consider asking the City of St. Helens for the county funds to be returned and use it to remodel the jail in the basement of the county courthouse. By the way, what is the cost to the County for all these special elections? Another prudent use of taxpayer funds? Nancy Reed, Scappoose Continued support On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and agencies of the Columbia Pacific Food Bank I would like to thank the many individuals, organizations, local governments and businesses who supported us during the past year with financial and food donations. Your support is greatly appreciated. Our mission is to alleviate hunger by creating access to healthy food and resources. We serve as the distribution point for over 20 partner agencies in Columbia County. In St. Helens your donations benefitted the H.E.L.P. emergency food pantry, Senior Center, Community Meals and Brown Bag program. In Scappoose it aided the St.



Vincent DePaul emergency food pantry, Senior Center and the Scappoose Foursquare Church emergency food pantry. Our projections for 2014 is that there will be an increased need for our services due to federal program reductions and other factors. With your continued support we will be able to not only feed those in need and connect them with resources that will help lift them from their current situation. Again, thank you for your support. Casey Wheeler, Columbia Pacific Food Bank On the record A reader with career experience as an ironworker asserts in the Feb. 7 “Letters” that a center pier or “bent” was improperly removed from the Milton Creek railroad bridge in St. Helens, opining it was integral to the structure. Wrong! As explained in my guest editorial dated Jan. 29, it was installed temporarily many years ago as a precaution to accommodate a one-timeonly Trojan Plant shipment of equipment much too heavy to ordinarily be accepted by rail. The pier was not necessary for regular-weight traffic after serving that purpose. I remember seeing it, at least 12 years ago; unneeded for many years, it was already free standing, having made no actual contact with the upper span for several years prior. It wasn’t metal. It was a double timber-frame bent, constructed of wood, and even then in worse shape than any of the steel components above it. However, temporary construction requires substantial footing, particularly near a streambed – that’s the shallow concrete block seen today. This bridge is 100-feet long, whereas many rail and highway bridges of similar construction and vintage are 150 feet or more; bridge spans are adequately designed to “span” (hence their name) the entire distance between piers at each end. Each was safely designed for ordinary loading, plus an adequate margin of overload capacity. During my rail career, I recall teletyped shipping memos in the 1960s regarding overweight shipments from suppliers on the east coast to Trojan at Rainier. Special equipment was used; special precautions were taken for the entire trip, some requiring safety measures (as taken in St. Helens) at various places over thousands of miles. At the end of my career,

Columbia Humane Society

I was superintendent on a railroad in Tacoma and had enough experience with bridges and bridge repair to know of what I speak. If that bridge was installed by anyone who later belonged to the local Ironworkers union (I support Union Labor, by the way), they would have been railroad workers at the time, because when the Northern Pacific Railway converted certain wooden bridges between Tacoma and Portland (including the structure in question) over to steel, normally they used their own B&B or “Bridge and Building” crews to do the work. As for “credibility,” contrary to assertions, I see nothing “warm and fuzzy” about any accident; we certainly don’t want one here, whether it be rail, highway, air or boat. I am “on record” as stating that corporations need to spend or do whatever is necessary to make their operation safe. But should a steel bridge span lose design capacity and require beefing up, the proper way is either by replacement, or by using engineered-steel components. A wooden pier is just “temporary.” It will decay, and long-term is useless. An ironworker certainly should know that. David Sprau, Warren Spin doctorate I often wonder if there actually is a University of Spin. You know, a place where lifelong politicians (and wannabe lifelong politicians) go to learn how to cover up the truth from the public – to learn such phrases as “confidentially agreement”, “we just want to create jobs”, “executive sessions”, “we don’t answer questions in public meetings.” Perhaps even an “if you print that, I will claim religious persecution” phrase could be thrown in here and there. I have never heard of such a place of learning but it must exist because it runs rampant in Columbia County. The Port of St. Helens could not disclose that crude oil trains were coming through the county and cities because of confidentially agreements. OK, I can accept if Starbucks wants to build a coffee shop and wants it kept confidential. I cannot accept that explosive material can be brought in through back room agreements and the public has absolutely no input until – surprise – here they are. I certainly side with St. Helens City Councilor Doug Morten when he says “if I hear one more person say they just want to create jobs, I will puke.” He is

right. Jobs are needed and so that is the catch phrase of nearly every publicly elected person in the county. I would ask the county commissioners and the port commissioners if they attended the University of Spin but would most likely be met with “we don’t answer questions in public meetings” or that is a matter for “executive sessions.” If you are a duly elected official and you are asked question from the people who elected you, you have the obligation to answer truthfully. If a company wants a confidentially agreement, tell them you have an obligation to your constituents to answer truthfully. If you want to be reelected, answer truthfully. Nancy Whitney, St. Helens A gold mine In the Feb. 9 issue of The Oregonian, it’s reported that Carolyn Lawson worked as the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at the California PUC, then moved to the California Office CIO making $9599K when Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Cover Oregon hired her away and offered her in excess of $171K to be the CIO. The report mentions the move as “a gold mine for Lawson.” Now Steven Powell, former contractor-friend brought into question back in 2008 regarding


improper contract protocol administered by Carolyn Lawson while at the California PUC, is taking her place at Cover Oregon. After reported incomes of just $5,200 in 2009 and $13,000 in 2010, it’s reported his salary as interim Cover Oregon CIO will be $181K. Eureka! The Wall Street Journal reported on Dec. 3, 2013, that Gov. Jerry Brown of California received a salary bump from $165K to $173K “putting him among the highest paid governors in the country.” according to the Council of State Governments. Among the highest paid... remember that phrase. Governors have to run for governor; a risky, difficult, and expensive proposition only to be-

Dave Coverly

come a most scrutinized and criticized administrator should they win. Add California’s unique circumstances: a porous border, budget-tax woes, infrastructure maintenance bigger then almost any state in the union, crime, gangs, and an independent legislature rounds out the major files. So the interim CIO for Cover Oregon has more on his plate then Gov. Brown? I find this unbelievable. Oh, don’t forget; we’ll be paying PERS on these extravagant salaries for the rest of their lives. Is it any wonder Cover Oregon’s $160 million website rollout gained national attention? Looks like a gold mine to me. Wayne Mayo, Scappoose

Library offers blind dates ... with books Weekly Meetings ST. HELENS — As Taylor Swift might say, “Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy. I have no cover, but read me maybe?” Tired of awkward questions, forced conversations or judgmental looks? Are you, like the song says, ready to take a big chance on love (with a book, that is)? The St. Helens Public Library wants to help. The library will pair patrons with the perfect printed match this February. Stop by the library between Jan. 31 and Feb. 28 to participate in the Second annual Blind Date with a Book program. It’s easy, fast and fun; the program matches patrons with an unknown, giftwrapped book that is checked out at the library without knowing the genre, author or title. All of the books chosen

have been carefully selected by library staff, so patrons know participating books are deserving of a great date with a willing reader. If you don’t like the book, simply return it with no hurt feelings. After your “date,” let the library know how things went by filling out a “Rate your Date” review located inside each book. Completed reviews submitted to the library by Feb. 28 will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $25 gift certificates to the Klondike Restaurant or one $25 gift certificate to Bertucci’s. Winners will be chosen on March 4 and notified by the library. For further information regarding the Blind Date with a Book program, call Library Director Margaret Jeffries at 503-397-4544.

Torpor and hummingbirds In very cold weather, my wife and I have always rotated hummingbird feeders to keep them from freezing up. Since the hummers are territorial, it involves rotating three feeding locations on about two-hour intervals when it is cold and snowy. One evening at dusk, Nancy noticed a hummingbird hanging upside down from the feeder perch. Being good-samaritan types, we worried that it was frozen onto the perch and was on its last wings. I went out and touched it. It flew directly into a snow bank. I picked it

up, warmed it for a second in my hand and released it again. Same result. So we decided to bring it inside. We put it in a bathroom in an open insulated cooler, turned off the lights, and closed the door. Neither of us expected it to survive. Next morning it was not in the cooler. Then there was a strong buzz and it reappeared. I grabbed it, took it outside, and away it flew. We thought we had saved it. Then we got to thinking, could this have been normal behavior that we had just never seen? An internet search revealed that hummingbirds, when resources are short and weather stress is high, can go into torpor. They can lower their metabolic rate by about 90 perct, their body temperature to 50 degrees versus the usual 104 degrees, and also lower their heart beat to 50 beats per minute versus the usual resting hummingbird rate of 250 beats per minute or a flying rate of 1,250 beats per minute. Their breathing rate can be very low and irregular. They can be in torpor for 8-14 hours and it takes them an hour to come out of it gradually as they raise their metabolic rate and their body temperature to 80 degrees. So, I don’t think we saved it, but we got an education and I guess the hummingbird

Working for a spot with the Wolves Local linemen Jacob Zartman and Kenny Klippel sign letters of intent to play for Western Oregon University

by kyle boggs


hile the schedule-makers didn’t allow Jacob Zartman and Kenny Klippel to go head-to-head on the gridiron either of the last two years, their respective size, talent and work ethics are giving them an opportunity to compete with one another for years to come in the future. Both Zartman, a St. Helens High School senior, and Klippel, a senior at Scappoose, signed National Letters of Intent last week to play football at Western Oregon University in the fall. Their teams faced off against each other their sophomore seasons, but St. Helens and Scappoose didn’t play one another in their junior or senior seasons. But because of their positions, there’s a good chance they’ll be lining up across from one another during many practices to come. The 6-4, 275-pound Zartman will play defensive end for the Wolves. Klippel, at 6-2, 246 pounds, expects to play on the offensive line, but said that could change. “When I was down there, they said they wanted me to

play tackle,” Klippel said, adding there was a chance he could also play guard or even on the defensive side of the ball. Both players excelled in their senior seasons. Klippel was a firstteam All-State offensive lineman for the 4A Indians in 2013. Zartman was named to the 2013 5A All-State second team as a defensive lineman. They each received All-League honors on both sides of the ball as juniors.

Hitting the weights Despite the impressive resumes, both players continued to push themselves after the football season ended. A quick glance at either of the two will tell you they spend some time in the weight room. But talk with them about their training regimen and it’s easy to understand just how important lifting is to them. “I always want to get stronger,” Zartman said. To add strength, he works out both during Cory Young’s weightlifting class at SHHS and also on his own at Pacific Athletic Club in Columbia City. Likewise, Klippel often lifts twice a day – once during Joe Nowlin’s weight training class and then again after school. The results speak for themselves. Klippel squats 450 pounds, bench presses 330 and power cleans 285. Zartman squats 445 pounds,

benches around 300 and power cleans 330. In other words, these guys are strong. In fact, improving on those numbers is one of the things that excites Klippel about moving to Monmouth and joining the Wolves. “I’m just really excited for meeting a whole new team, having a bunch of new guys to work out with. Now in the weight room hopefully everyone else will be

Tribe has chance to move into top two The Scappoose Indians (9-9, 3-2) have an opportunity to move up in the Cowapa League standings this week. The Indians – currently sitting in the Cowapa’s No. 3 spot – have three games this week. Two of them are against the teams directly ahead of the Tribe in the standings. Because of the snowstorm that scrambled school and athletic schedules last week, Scappoose’s Feb. 7 game against the Tillamook Cheesemakers (3-15, 1-4) was moved to Feb. 13 – right in between a pair of games against the league’s No. 1 and No. 2 teams. The good news for the Indians is that both of those games are at home. Scappoose hosted secondplace Banks (12-6, 4-1) on Feb. 11. League-leading Seaside (16-2, 5-0) – the No. 4 team in the state – visits for a 5:30 p.m. game on Feb. 14. The bad news for the Indians is that they entered this week having not practiced since last Thursday. “There’s always a concern when you have time off, especially at this time of the year. But it can work

we can and go play.” Scappoose enters the second half of the season without senior Brittany Catlow and junior Bella Sykes. Catlow tore her ACL and has a slight tear in her meniscus. Catlow suffered the same injury to her other knee last year. She will undergo surgery as soon as possible, Spirlin said. Sykes has a torn meniscus. Like Catlow, she suffered that same injury in her other knee last year as well. Spirlin said he plans to institute an offseason training regimen to strengthen players’ knees. With those two players hobbled last week, the Indians solidified their spot in third place by beating the Astoria Fishermen (6-13, 2-3) 45-36. The two teams entered the game tied for the third spot. Senior guard Lacey Updike came off the bench to score a teamhigh 14 points. She shot 3-for-5 from behind the 3-point line. Senior Abby Kessi finished The Chronicle file photo with eight points and 10 rebounds. Freshman Alyssa Spang has provided a spark for Scappoose as of late. Freshman Alyssa Spang added six both ways, especially with us with David Spirlin. “I know we’ll be points and four assists. the injuries and illnesses and things a little rusty, but that will be both like that,” said Scappoose coach teams.

Scappoose continues to excel in close games ASTORIA — This year’s Scappoose Indian basketball team has carved out an identity as one that comes through in clutch situations. The Indians (11-8, 4-1) are 7-1 in two-possession games — those decided by six or fewer points. The latest of those seven wins came on Feb. 4, when Scappoose beat Astoria (5-14, 1-4) 63-57 in overtime. The win over the Fishermen was probably the least likely of the seven. Scappoose trailed by five points on the road with just 30 seconds left in the game. “In the huddle we kept stressing to our guys, ‘We win close games. This is ours! We will win, just keep competing, keep fighting and we will come through,’” said Scappoose coach Rahim Tufts. The Indians received plenty of help from the Fishermen, who struggled at the free-throw line late. After one of those misses, senior Mitch Davis took the ball coastto-coast and cut the deficit to three points with 20 seconds left. The Fishermen then missed two more free throws – the second miss an airball, giving the Tribe the ball out of bounds. From the sidelines, Tufts watched his team set up a play against Astoria’s 2-3 zone. The

Three-sport athletes Klippel already holds the SHS record in the javelin. He set the standard with a throw of 169 feet, two inches last season. He hopes to extend that mark and also break the school’s 52-year-old discus record. That’s what has him a bit hesitant to bulk up too much before the spring. “Before I’m out of high school, I’ll try to add another 20 [pounds]. I’m not sure if I want to lean out a little bit for track to be more flexible, get that javelin record a little farther and try to break that discus record too. I’ll try to add some muscle, I’m not sure where it’s gonna go though,” he said. Klippel is confident he has the strength and ability to put his name atop the school’s discus leaderboard, but acknowledges he will need to improve his form See WOU, Page A14

stronger than me and I’ll be at the bottom, have to work my way up again,” he said. Klippel said the coaching staff at WOU would like him to put on upward of 20 pounds. He’s unsure whether he will try to tack on the additional weight during his senior year of high school, or wait until the school year comes to an end. After all, like Zartman, football isn’t the only sport for Klippel.

Johnson scored 16 points and had 12 rebounds. Junior Jacob Wendelschafer came off the bench to score seven points and hand out a half-dozen assists. “We played 11 guys last night and everyone contributed in some way and the four guys on the bench that didn’t get in contributed with positive energy throughout the game. In these close games, individuals are making big plays but they are team wins,” Tufts said. “Every play matters, whether a player plays three minutes and helps get a couple defensive stops or a player drops 31 like Mitch did last night… every person is extremely critical to our success.” Scappoose was scheduled to play at Tillamook (12-6, 5-0) at 7 p.m. on Feb. 7. The game was postponed because of snow. It will now be played on Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. The Chronicle file photo Scappoose played Banks (7-10, Scappoose senior Mitch Davis had 31 points and 11 rebounds against Astoria 1-4) on Feb. 11.

St. Helens seeks more consistency by kyle boggs

There is a three-way tie atop the Northwest Oregon Conference standings. No. 6 Wilsonville, No. 8 Sherwood and No. 9 Sandy are all 6-1 in league games. Right behind them in the conference standings is Liberty at 5-2. In terms of win-loss records, the St. Helens Lions (3-13, 1-6) aren’t close to the top spot. And that’s what frustrates coach Jerry Allen, because he has seen his team play close games against those teams. A lack of consistency, Allen says, is the only thing separating the Lions from those four teams in the upper half of the league. “The league has a lot of parity. We’re not afraid of any team. We’re in each game,” Allen said. “Just down the stretch we do stupid stuff. We turn the ball over, we don’t finish a play off. It’s a whole lot of different things – in the third quarter we’ll miss a wide-open lay-up. Just little things like that. We don’t get stops – little things.” It was those little things that again added up to a defeat last week against the Liberty Falcons. St. Helens had a dozen steals in the game and trailed by only one at the end of the third quarter, but ended up with a 58-49 loss. “We’re losing close games, games that we’re in. (We) haven’t given up, we keep scrapping. But we’re making mistakes when we’re close. The Liberty game was a close See lions, Page A13

St. Helens senior Corey West has given his team plenty to clap about lately, averaging a team-high 12.8 points per game during NWOC play.

Prep Standings


St. Helens splits dual meet at Sandy won the 200 freestyle. Junior Dillon Swatski won the backstroke. The team’s other individual win came from junior Jonathan Prevish. It was one of six wins for the Prevish family. Jonathan swam on both the 200-yard medley and 200-yard freestyle relays. His sister Jackie had a part in all three wins for the Lion girls. She won the 100-yard free and the 100 breaststroke, and teamed with senior Johanna Parkhurst, junior Brook Hopkins and senior Tori Edwards to win the 400 free relay. “The Prevish family is tough as nails. All of them can be counted on to come up big when needed. I always feel better when there is a Prevish on a relay,” said St. Helens coach Bill Rash. The Lions will head to the Northwest Oregon Conference District Championship

Meet next. It is Feb. 13-14 at Parkrose High School. Rash thinks his girls can finish second if things go well. He expects the boys’ meet to be a bit of a jumble. “I’m hoping to have some relays make the state meet for sure. Possibly some individuals as well,” Rash said. All event winners at the six district meets across the state automatically qualify for the state meet. The other six slots at the state meet will be filled by the next fastest times from all of the district meet finals. – By Kyle Boggs Boys St. Helens 94, Sandy 76 200 medley relay: 1, St. Helens (Swatski, Zartman, Prevish, Jensen) 1:58. 2, Sandy 2:00. 200 free: 1, Moss, SH, 2:15. 2, Noah, S, 2:24. 200 IM: 1, Nick, S, 2:02. 2, Swatski, SH, 2:23. 50 free: 1, Nolan, S, :26.35. 2, Zartman, SH, :28.25. 100 fly: 1, Prevish, SH, 1:02. 2, Capelle, SH, 1:13. 100 free: 1, Lein, SH, :56.44.

From PAGE A12 game, but they hit free throws,” Allen said. The Lions found a lot of success offensively when they got the ball to senior post Corey West. West scored a team-high 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting (62 percent). But West was the team’s only consistent option. That is another issue that Allen said is holding the team back – an inability to consistently have two or three scoring options. “We don’t have a mainstay. One guy will play really well, then the other won’t. We don’t have any consistency from any certain guys. We don’t have a big three that will give us 12 or 13 [points] consistently and rebound,” Allen said. The coach said he’s looking for someone on the team to step into a leadership role and be what he deemed “That guy.” For fans of the Trail Blazers, “That guy” would be someone like Damian Lillard – a player who wants the ball in his hands with the game on the line and has the confidence to make a play when things are

ticed with more enthusiasm. “We had a really good practice Wednesday, scrimmaged some guys. They were getting up and down the court,” McKinney said. Unfortunately for the Lions, it was the last practice they could muster before heading into a stretch of three games in four nights this week. St. Helens was at Sherwood (10-6, 5-2) for a regularly scheduled game on Feb. 11. The Lions follow that with a home game against the Parkrose Broncos (0-15, 0-7) at 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 12.

breaking down around him. “It’s not a knock against the kids. They’re fighting, they’re trying to do the things they need to do. But it’s that belief system,” Allen said. “There comes a time in the game that has nothing to do with the coach. You have to play. Here’s what we drew up – what if that play doesn’t work? You gotta improvise. And the improvisation needs to be positive and productive.” There might be additional reason for improvisation this week. The Lions haven’t practiced since last Thursday and face three games in four nights this week. St. Helens was home against Sherwood on Feb. 11. The Lions play on the road against the Parkrose Broncos (1-15, 1-6) at 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 12. Then St. Helens closes the week with a trip to Wilsonville on Feb. 14 for a 7:15 p.m. game.

ST. HELENS — A big second quarter propelled the Liberty Falcons (6-11, 4-3) past the St. Helens Lions (015, 0-7) on Feb. 4. The Lions trailed by only five after the first quarter, but were down 27-11 at halftime. Liberty went on to win the game 47-25. During that second quarter, the Falcons were able to force the Lions into turnovers with their full-court press. In the opening period, St. Helens was able to break the press and get into its half-court offense. But the shots weren’t falling for the Lions, who shot 19 percent for the game. Lion coach Billy McKinney attributed the cold shooting to a poor practice the day prior. “Monday’s practice was lackadaisical and that carries right over into the game,” McKinney said. Junior guard Rianne Tupper led St. Helens offensively with 10 points. On the other end of the floor she had five steals. On the afternoon following the game, the Lions prac-

SANDY — It was a battle of two unbeatens when the St. Helens and Sandy high school girls swim teams met Feb. 4. The two squads entered their final Northwest Oregon Conference dual sporting matching 6-0 records. The Pioneers finished the season a perfect 7-0 with a 97-73 win over the Lions, who finish as the NWOC runner-up for dual meets with a 6-1 mark. The Lion boys beat the Pioneers 94-76, concluding the dual season with a 4-3 record. The St. Helens boys swept all three relays and won eight events overall en route to their victory. Sophomore Cameron Lein won the 100- and 500-yard freestyle races, two events swam back-to-back. He also swam on the 200- and 400yard freestyle relay teams. Sophomore Trevor Moss

Snow complicates schedules once again by kyle boggs @KyleKBoggs

This winter has brought with it more snow than I can recall in any of my years living in Oregon. There was the December blast that shut down schools for a few days and then the unprecedented snowstorm of last week. As a result of both dumpings, the school and athletic schedules were mangled. There were several events either postponed or cancelled last week. In addition to all of the basketball games that were postponed (which you can read about in the stories about the respective teams), there were a handful of others as well: The Cowapa League swim championships were called off, the Scappoose wrestlers had two events moved, and the St. Helens wrestling team’s meet against Sherwood was postponed until Feb. 12. The Scappoose wrestlers will face Tillamook and Rainier at home on Feb. 13, starting at 6 p.m. The Scappoose swim team will not make up its Cowapa League meet. Instead, the Indians will next swim at the District I Championships, Feb. 14-15 in Astoria. The good news about

will be crucial for deep attacks against the opposition. Mariah Mulcahy Opposing teams are sure to try ducking fastballs from the two-time NWOC Pitcher of the Year. A snowball from her powerful arm would surely leave an icy sting. Michelle Sass A two-time All-League catcher, she won’t be fazed when the snowballs are whirring toward her. Her start-and-stop ability will keep the other team offbalance as well. Will Sprute This power pitcher has led the way to many wins for the Scappoose baseball team. It’s a safe bet his accuracy and arm strength will help do the same for this team. Gabby Susee Anyone who watched a St. Helens High School volleyball match this season knows how much raw power can be generated from Susee’s right arm. Corey West In a snowball fight, it’s important to stick together. West showed at volleyball games all year long that he’s a natural leader, and his athletic ability also won’t hurt. An earlier version of this story appeared on Kyle’s Sports Blog on on Dec. 10.

TRIBE: prepares for home stretch From PAGE A12 A combination of injuries and her adaptation to the speed of the varsity level has led to an increase in playing time of late for Spang. The freshman guard has made the most of it and is proving to be a catalyst on the defensive end of the floor. “She’s really disruptive to the other team. She gets her hand in the passing lane and she’s got some quickness that is kind of disruptive,” Spirlin said. “When she gets in the game, our pace picks up.” Spirlin is hopeful that the team’s collective pace will pick up over the next few weeks. The Indians have only two more weeks of league play before the playoffs begin. “We gotta toughen up physically, and mentally get through it and be ready for that third season,” Spirlin said, referring to the postseason. 1st 2nd 3rd 4th F SHS 13 6 14 12 45 AHS 11 6 8 11 36 SCAPPOOSE: Spang 6, Wight 6, Kessi 8, Tinning 5, Updike 14, Vardanega 2, Raya 4, Bailey, Kopra.

Zartman will be one of the Lions’ top returning throwers this season. While it’s common for linemen to double as throwers come track season, it’s success in another sport that separates Klippel and Zartman from the rest of their peers in the trenches: Swimming. Both are among the top male swimmers on their respective teams and each could be in contention for scoring spots at their district meets. “I want to be top six in the breaststroke. I have been every year since I started swimming,” Zartman said. He added that he’d like to help the 200-yard medley team earn a berth in the state meet and place in the top 12 in the 50-yard freestyle. Both student-athletes took similar paths to the pool.

Simon Fraser. I just loved the atmosphere. It’s a place where my parents are gonna love watching me play.” Klippel has sought the experiences of his coaches and former teammates who also spent time playing in Monmouth. Klippel is adding his name to the list of football players trekking from Scappoose High to Western Oregon, a list that includes current SHS coaches Sean McNabb, Jim Jones and Brad McKedy, as well as Klippel’s former teammate, Paul Revis. “Everyone I talked to really liked it. McNabb said he had a good time. McKedy played there – every time he has a football memory it’s there,” Klippel said. “Paul’s down there, I’ll get to play with him again. That’s cool.” Another piece of the puzzle that both studentathletes’ parents will find cool – aside from the ability to drive down for Saturday home games – is that their college bills will be a bit cheaper. Both Zartman and Klippel have accepted partial scholarships to play at WOU.
