Permits seen as a win by both sides DEQ issues three permits for Ambre Energy’s Morrow Pacific project BY SHARI PHIEL

Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality announced last week it issued three permits for Ambre Energy’s Morrow Pacific project and, interestingly enough, both the company and its opponents are counting it a win. The permits issued by DEQ are for air quality, water quality and construction stormwater for the proposed Coyote Island Terminal in Boardman. According to the state agency, it issued the three permits because “as proposed, they comply with all relevant environmental rules and regulations.” DEQ also noted the permits went through a rigorous internal review and an extensive public process involving more than 16,500 public comments. “As we’ve said all along, we are committed to meeting the high environmental standards set by the state of Oregon. By issuing these three permits after a rigorous process, the Department of Environmental Quality has affirmed that the project complies with environmental rules and regulations of the state of Oregon,” said Morrow Pacific CEO Clark Moseley. Ambre proposed the Morrow Pacific project in early 2012 with the goal of eventually shipping more than 8 million metric tons of coal annually from the Powder River basin in Wyoming and Montana to the Coyote Island Terminal in Boardman. There, the coal would be transferred to storage containers before being loaded ­­­­ See PERMITS, Page A8

SHARI PHIEL / The Chronicle The City of St. Helens has signed an agreement with Boise Cascade to purchase the 17-acre riverfront parcel that once house the company’s veneer plant. What the city hopes to do with the property is still being decided.

St. Helens to buy Boise land ST. HELENS — Since Boise began shuttering its operations in 2008, the City of St. Helens has been in talks with the company to purchase some of its nowempty properties. The city moved a step closer this month when it signed an agreement to purchase the 17-acre waterfront property that once housed Boise

Cascade’s veneer plant. Since discussions to purchase the property began, there have been a number of ideas put forward about what could be done with the property. Ideas have included building a riverfront park with bicycle and walking paths, placement of a dock so river boat cruises like the Portland Spirit could let

passengers off for shopping trips in Olde Towne, or possibly a scenic drive from U.S. Highway 30 to the south side of the city. The agreement reached in early February between Boise and the city only confirms the intent of each to complete the sale, it does not constitute the sale itself. That will come later, as will

the purchase price for the property. City Manager John Walsh said they are not disclosing the purchase price for the property, which Boise believes to be under market value, at Boise’s request. Walsh also said funding for the purchase will come from harvesting 40 acres of 70-year-old

timber on its Salmonberry Lake property. City officials held an all-day workshop and tour of the Boise properties on Tuesday, Feb. 18 to look at not only the future of the veneer plant property but also other properties in negotiation. Those negotia

Curry adds color to Sochi’s Olympic opening ceremony BY KYLE BOGGS

Few events capture a global audience the same way the opening ceremony of the Olympics is able to. Since the inception of the Olympics, the games have started and finished with some sort of festival. Lately, the spectacle seems only to be growing in grandeur. This year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia was no exception. One of the leading creative forces helping create the festive atmosphere was none other than Scappoose’s own Michael Curry Design. Curry sent a team of three to Sochi. Amy Nevitt of St. Helens, Jarred Kearsley, a St. Helens High School graduate, and Harlan Whitman of Portland all spent two and a half months

in Sochi preparing for the opening ceremonies. They were three of more than 12,000 people that came together to help pull off the 45-minute long production that served as the official opening of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Among those thousands of people who helped make this show happen, several of them were what Kearsley deemed the best of the best. “I’ve done other shows, but this is the first time I’ve really experienced the Michael Jordans of theatre. They’re really good,” he said. Curry is one of those at the top of the game. He spent more than two years coming up with plans for the opening ceremony. “He had a huge impact on the design of the show and parts of the show,” Kearsley said.

There were two main areas Curry’s crew was tasked with handling: The boyars that formed together to create the fins on the very colorful whale that marched across the stadium floor, and the light-up strands that twirled from dancers heads as they spun around and collectively formed a dove. The view the three locals had of the opening ceremonies was different than what viewers in the United States saw. Rather than overhead camera angles, wide shots of the dancing or close-up shots of acrobats, Kearsley was stationed at ground level on one end of the stadium. That means that what he helped create, he still hasn’t seen the way the show’s producers intended it to be seen – other than watching on screens in the ­­­­ See CURRY, Page A8

For the past two months, parishioners at Plymouth Presbyterian Church have had a new voice delivering the Sunday sermon from the pulpit. Pastor David Hutchinson joined the church on Dec. 15, replacing Marilyn Allen who served as pastor for nearly two decades. Hutchinson himself has been a pastor for the past 22 years, serving primarily at two churches in Portland. With his previous work, he spent much of time focused on administrative responsibilities, something very different from his role in St. Helens. “It was a very programmatic job, very administrative. I liked it and I did a lot of good things there and left on good terms but it was time to do something different,” he said. “I was looking for a whole different thing and this is a whole different thing. It’s apples and oranges. It really isn’t even the same job.” Originally hailing from the heartland (he was born in Minneapolis, Minn., and raised in Iowa) Hutchinson arrived in Portland in 1995. There he served as pastor of a church with around 100 members, much the same size as Plymouth Presbyterian. He stayed there for 7 ½ years before moving on

to become Associate Pastor at Westminster Presbyterian Church, also in Portland. “I was at Westminster in Portland for 11 years. That’s about a 700-member church with 12 staff and four pastors,” he said. “My main focus was planning the education program for adults, doing outreach to new members, working with youth and children program directors, that kind of thing.” Along with his role at Westminster, Hutchinson also began teaching at the University of Portland. “It was really too much to do my job at Westminster and do the teaching. I planned adult education for 30 to 100 people each week – so I had as many people showing up for adult education as we do for the whole congregation. It was a big job but I loved it,” Hutchinson said. “I like the teaching aspect of it but I was doing a lot of the programmatic, administrative stuff and I wanted to get back to preaching.” Hutchinson says he was mulling over an offer to take on more teaching jobs with the university, but wasn’t sure he wanted to continue his work at Westminster. “I was thinking about it and then I heard about Plymouth. I had known Marilyn, who was here for 17 years, and I liked her. Other people had told me about Plymouth, ­­­­ See PASTOR, Page A3

PASTOR: creating connections at St. Helens church people I knew from the area, and it’s a great church,” he said. Hutchinson says the decision to take on the new role at Plymouth has proven to be the right one. “You never know, because it is new. Until you’re there, you never know. Would it really be like I thought it would be? Would people really be as friendly as I thought they were? I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t stay for five or 10 years.” What does he find appealing about the St. Helens congregation? “They have a lot of good energy. I know a lot of congregations this size and smaller that struggle. It’s hard to be a church now. It’s not about any particular church doing the wrong thing, nobody knows what to do. The culture is different, the world’s different, everything’s changing and people are trying to figure out how to be the church,” he says. Although it’s only been two months, Hutchinson has

already seen the kind of focus on ministering to others he hoped for. During the recent snowstorm, church volunteers kept the warming center – the only one like it in the county – open throughout the entire event. “We had people here all through the snowstorm. We didn’t do worship on Sunday but we were open for the warming center. People stayed overnight, the whole thing. I love that about our church,” he added. Mission work has been a big part of Hutchinson’s life in the past. He has been chair of a mission committee, been to Cuba, brought others to the U.S. from international destinations and has been involved in Habitat for Humanity. “I just love mission work, outreach, doing service, putting your faith into action. And this church is about that,” he said. “For a church this size, the church has a ton of energy. They have people who want to do things, they have engagement and involvement, people are show-

make it authentic.” Ultimately, Hutchinson says, people are looking for connections and that is what the St. Helens church is all about. Plymouth Presyterian is located at 2615 Sykes Road, in St. Helens. Sunday services are at 10:30 a.m.

An open letter to the communities along the Astoria Line of the Portland &Western Railroad Over the last several months, there has been an increasing level of interest in the handling of crude oil by rail. As you may already know, the Portland & Western Railroad transports trains of crude oil from Portland to Port Westward over our Astoria Line. It is important that you, as a citizen of Columbia or Multnomah County, understand the facts of this service. The expansion of hydraulic fracturing of shale formations in our country has created new domestic sources of crude oil and natural gas. This in turn has reduced American demand for foreign crude oil, allowing our country to become less dependent upon importing from distant sources such as the Middle East. The challenge of these new domestic sources of energy is that often there is no existing pipeline network to move the crude oil to U.S. refineries. The American freight rail network has been called upon to fill this need. The Portland & Western, like all freight railroads in this country, is a “common carrier” railroad. This term has a historically long and significant legal definition. Simply put, it means that the Portland & Western is obligated by federal law to transport any commodity that is properly documented and in an approved freight car. Along with this common carrier status comes a responsibility that we take very seriously: To safely serve the communities and customers along our railroad. Our employees live and work in these same communities, and safety is the foremost priority in all we do at the Portland & Western. We work with a clear Core Purpose: To be the safest and most respected rail service provider in the world. And our success has been demonstrated: ■

Our parent company, Genesee &Wyoming, is a leader in rail safety. Over the last five years, G&W railroads have had a combined employee injury rate lower than any large railroad and several times safer than the short line railroad average. Prevention of employee injuries is a key indicator of a railroad’s overall focus on safety. The intense attention to detail that is required to eliminate injuries translates to every aspect of the operation.

Starting in 2005, Portland & Western employees worked more than a million consecutive man-hours without a reportable employee injury – one of the most remarkable achievements ever in the rail industry.

In 2009 and again in 2012, we won the prestigious E.H. Harriman Award for best safety performance among U.S. railroads.

Since 2007, customers of all Genesee &Wyoming railroads, including the Portland &Western, have been surveyed biannually by a leading customer-satisfaction research firm. In all four surveys to date, the attribute rated highest by our customers is, “Operating personnel demonstrate a clear commitment to safety.”

Even with these clear accomplishments, we never rest on our past safety performance. We are constantly training, testing, observing, coaching and reinforcing safety with our employees. Portland &Western employees also routinely receive instruction at a world-class training center in Jacksonville, Florida, and take part in a DuPont safety program focused on the relentless elimination of all unsafe behaviors or unsafe conditions on the railroad. Another critical aspect of continuous safety improvement in the U.S. rail industry and on the Portland &Western is learning from prior rail accidents. Determining the root cause of a rail accident and taking steps to prevent similar incidents by U.S. railroads and government agencies is taken very seriously by all of us in the railroad industry. This includes incorporating operating, testing and training updates to our procedures. For instance, after the last significant derailment on the Portland & Western, which occurred in 2011 outside Scappoose and involved a log car and a parked tank car loaded with ethanol, we instituted additional safety protocols for both types of cars that should prevent a similar incident from ever happening again. More specifically to our handling of crude oil over the Astoria Line, we exceed all federal regulations and guidance in moving these trains. The best way to handle an accident is to prevent it in the first place, and the Portland & Western has implemented many steps to ensure that these trains are delivered safely to Port Westward: ■

We restrict crude oil trains on the Portland & Western to a maximum of 25 mph, or 10 mph in areas like the A Street trackage in Rainier. These speeds are significantly slower than speeds at which the recent derailments and fires have occurred on other railroads.

Every crude oil train on the Portland & Western is preceded by a track inspector in a hi-rail truck to ensure that the route is intact and free of obstructions, such as fallen trees or rocks.

Crude oil trains on the Portland & Western do not routinely stop en route to their destination, nor do we leave crude oil or other hazardous materials unattended.

We inspect our track weekly in accordance with Federal Railroad Administration requirements and then conduct an additional weekly track inspection on the Astoria Line.

Rail bridges on the Astoria Line are professionally inspected on a routine basis by trained railroad employees, expert contractors and the Federal Railroad Administration. We plan our bridge maintenance work based on these inspections.

We conduct sophisticated tests of track geometry and employ two different test methods to detect flaws inside the rail that eventually could cause a rail to break. Any issues detected are immediately addressed.

I want to assure you that all of us at the Portland &Western Railroad are focused on providing the best possible service to our customers in the safest way possible. This is critical for the region’s economy and the environment. Every railcar on the Astoria Line represents four trucks kept off U.S. 30, resulting in less pollution and congestion and improved safety. The importance of this to the overall quality of life for our neighbors along this highway corridor should not be overlooked. Working with the customers and communities we serve along the Astoria Line, we are certain that our railroad will continue to facilitate job growth in the safest, most environmentally sensitive way possible. Sincerely,

Joel Haka Genesee & Wyoming Senior Vice President, Pacific Region Railroads and President, Portland & Western Railroad, Inc.

Letters Accountability needed For 10 months I’ve been working with Columbia County Courthouse personnel/DA’s office to get a custody/support order processed. It’s been extremely frustrating, mostly because of the incompetence I’ve encountered. I’ve been given incorrect information, my paperwork has been “lost,” and I was told by a clerk that paperwork is sometimes clipped to a wrong file. She explained this is a fairly common occurrence. What’s most frustrating throughout all of this? Not one person has acknowledged any fault on their part, or offered any apology. I became upset with the DA’s office when they couldn’t find my application, even though I have a voicemail from their office indicating they had it. I had to submit a new application, further delaying the process. With all I’d been through, I was understandably frustrated. The DA’s office asked if I wanted my case moved to Salem to be handled. I replied no. Days later, I received a letter from the DA’s office stating they’d moved my case to Clatsop County for processing. I’m not aware of any job where you handle a complaint of this type by moving the person out of your jurisdiction, with no attempt to understand or correct the issue, let alone accepting any responsibility for the errors and mishandling that occurred. With the wages and benefits these employees receive, I’d expect them to be held accountable for an acceptable level of performance and serve customers with courtesy and respect. If others have had similar experiences, I urge you to report it. Perhaps we’ll see accountability held then. Kristin Walters, Columbia City Anyone there? Over the past several months, there have been multiple letters to the editor and, in addition, several articles in the paper regarding oil trains and the potential for disaster. However, there has been a void as far as communication by county commissioners, port commissioners and other elected officials, including our state senator and state representative. Those officials, who were so in favor of the increase in oil trains initially, have been relatively silent since the multiple explosions in the U.S. and Canada. Where are the public meetings now? Why has no one addressed the safety issues in the local papers? Have they changed



their minds, as have so many of the citizens of Columbia County? Why are these issues not being addressed in an open and transparent manner that can be communicated to everyone, not just those who can attend a meeting? You were all elected. If you are working for us, let us know what you are doing for us. There is an uncanny quiet, which I find quite alarming. Since we, the taxpayers, are the ones who will end up paying to clean up an oil spill or the damage from an explosion, we have the right to be in the loop. Hello - is anyone there? Cathy Pitkin, Warren Valentines for Vets I want to give a big thank you to all those who attended the “Valentines for Vets” at the St. Helens Elks Lodge on Feb. 1. The turnout was amazing and signed Valentines cards are on there way overseas, to the VA hospital in Portland and various assisted living facilities. Thanks to the huge number of volunteers who made this possible; with a special thank you to Liam Tindall who volunteered his time and labor from early morning to the very end. It’s special when you see young people stepping up to volunteer. Working in partnership with our VFWs, American Legions and community members, we have raised funds to provide for a pre-deployment dinner for our National Guard (Det 1 Bravo 1-186th) in St. Helens who are scheduled for deployment this year. It is so rewarding to see a community come together and show their support for our military and veterans. Thank you all. Alta Lynch, St. Helens Elks Lodge No chance for levy I can’t believe the fire department wants to bring forth a $15 million levy to the voters. The sheriff can’t get $9 million to run the jail and house the federal inmates even though he has tried several times. Sheriff Dickerson inherited an albatross, which he can’t seem to make fly away. The county commissioners have cut funding for his budget until there is not enough money to maintain operations. I do not understand why, if money is so tight in the county, why the commissioners don’t do leg work and go to decent companies and see if they will locate here. Instead, they depend on their coalition of counties who will slit each other’s throats in the way of bigger tax abate-

ments to draw companies away from other counties. People know where the problem lies. We all know who was instrumental in thinking that the jail would be a business that would create enough revenue to fully run the operation – big dreams, big ideas from a former logger who transformed himself into a county commissioner. He does have one good talent; he knows how to schmooze people. But I think the people are getting wise to his ways. Why do you suppose the fire department believes their levy will pass? They really must think the voters are stupid. Hang it up guys – your leader has fleeced the taxpayers once too often – beginning with the hospital. Jay Tappan was involved in this up to his neck. He and the former logger were two of the key players in the debacle. Now Jay Tappan wants the taxpayers to trust him again. Not likely. Tappan was hired as a fire chief over many other qualified applicants. Unfortunately, Tappan has no credentials to be a fire chief. He gets well over $100,000 a year to boot – pretty good for someone who is not qualified for the position. Under the official rules and regulations he cannot go to a scene and direct the firefighters because he is not qualified. But this is Columbia County and to hell with rules and regulations unless it benefits those in charge. Why was he hired in this position? Was it because he was a local boy and knew the right people? Probably so, because that is how it works in Columbia County. I heard they want to pay off the training center that was built for Boise Cascade- estimated at $3.2 million and by the time it is paid off the taxpayers will be out millions more. Same old story – do anything we can to keep Boise in town, similar to the City of St. Helens doing special favors with the water treatment facility, also for Boise. St. Helens city residents now have to pay higher water bills to make up the difference from the loss of Boise’s funds. The county gave Boise a quarter of a million dollars to stay, and less than six months later Boise sold out and the county lost your tax dollars. If these people are as smart as they think they are, why didn’t they have an agreement with Boise that if they left they would still have to pay for the agreed portion of the new facility. How’s that working out? Boise is like Elvis and has left the building. The fire department

needs to tell the people exactly what they want the money for instead of skirting the issue and deceiving the people. If the fire department needs a fire truck the people would most likely give them the funds. Lay it out, item by item and individual cost for each item, and then go from there. A little honesty will go a long way. After many of these same people screwed the taxpayers on the hospital issue, I am afraid that it will be nearly impossible to get a levy passed for years to come. Deceive me once, shame on you – deceive me twice, shame on me. By the election results it looks like the taxpayers have had their fill of being deceived. Tammy Maygra, Deer Island

if the county would limit jail bed rentals to the U.S. Marshall’s office to 30 beds per day at $115. I will not support a ballot measure above 57 cents because it would be excessive with the addition of bed rental revenue. I prefer a 10-year timeframe but would consider five years, but will not support anything shorter – no short term fixes. I will not support a ballot measure that allows the county to rent out more than 30 beds per day to the federal government. If jail supporters find my limits too strict that’s too bad. Support a long term affordable solution or close the doors, either way is fine with me. Joe Bill Turner, Columbia City

The last election was on Nov. 5; jail supporters had from Nov. 6 to Feb. 19 to collect and validate signatures to put the jail issue onto the May ballot, which is approximately three months and two weeks to meet Oregon election rules. Not enough time? Election rules do not compensate for gift shopping, holidays or college and NFL football games. Commissioner Fisher’s offer to put the measure on the ballot with support of invalidated signatures is legally questionable, as invalidated signatures would make the entire election invalid. I would support a ballot measure to fund 102 beds at $227.50 for the next 10 years at a tax rate of 56.25 cents per $1,000 tax value

No short term fixes Having a jail is a critical part of local law enforcement. I attended the first two jail summits to learn of what options our local public servants could come up with. The mayor of Columbia City suggested that they just put the measure on the next ballot and ram it through, which was not accepted by Chairman Hyde. The commissioners explained that if jail supporters wanted it on the next ballot they needed to collect the needed signatures and have them validated by the election office by Feb. 19, in which jail supporters claimed they did not have enough time.

Accident, small landslide temporarily closes Hwy. 30 Drivers headed into Portland last Saturday afternoon on U.S. Highway 30 may have had an unexpected delay due to a small landslide. The eastbound lanes of U.S. Highway 30, just northwest of Portland near Harborton, were blocked for a period of time after a landslide blocked the roadway and caused a minor injury car crash. The accident happened shortly after 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 15, when a vehicle driven by an adult male eastbound on Highway 30 near milepost 11 traveled up on the landslide. The driver lost control try-

ing to avoid debris on the roadway and the vehicle rolled, coming to rest on its top. The driver received minor injuries not requiring transport to a hospital. Oregon State Police, local emergency responders and crews from the Oregon Department of Transportation were called to the scene to assist the driver and with the cleanup. The road was eventually reopened and travel was resumed. ODOT encourages drivers to check road conditions and updates on the ODOT website at

PERMITS: Majority of comments oppose coal terminal project From PAGE A1

onto covered barges using an enclosed conveyor. The coal would then travel down the Columbia River to Port Westward in Clatskanie before being transferred to Panamax ocean-going vessels headed to Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan and other Asian markets. The entire process – from end to end – is to be fully covered, enclosed and contained to minimize exposure to coal dust. However, this and other projects looking to bring coal through the Pacific Northwest continue to draw criticism from citizens statewide and from environmental groups like Columbia Riverkeeper, Clean Colum-

bia County, Sierra Club, Greenpeace and the National Wildlife Federation. Ambre officials might be viewing the newly obtained permits as a step forward, but opponents have a very different perspective. “There’s bigger news today about their coal export proposal. And it’s not good for them… Ambre applied for these permits over 18 months ago, and they were drafted by the agency as approved over eight months ago, but it’s no game changer,” said Michael O’Leary, outreach consultant from the National Wildlife Federation. “In fact these aren’t the most important permits. The biggest hurdles for coal exports in Oregon have long been

with Oregon’s Department of State Lands, who are allowed much broader scope to their concerns with coal than the DEQ is allowed, and who for the last year have frozen Ambre dead in its tracks with follow up questions that the coal company either can’t or won’t answer.” Opposition to at least the Coyote Island Terminal portion of the project seems to be growing, if not well established. Of the more the 16,500 comments received during the public comment period, more than 80 percent were opposed to issuing the permits. According to DEQ, most of the comments focused on three areas of concern: “global impacts related to

the combustion of coal, such as greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, regional haze, mercury emissions, and other hazardous air pollutant emissions; transportation issues, such as increased train traffic, locomotive and tugboat emissions, noise, spills, and fugitive dust while the coal is in transit; and economic benefits associated with the project, such as jobs area citizens and revenue for local communities.” The issuance of the three permits does not mean that the project has been approved to proceed just that the standards for these particular DEQ permits have been met. Along with these, the project also needs permits from the Oregon Department

of State Lands and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which Ambre is currently seeking. The company is anticipating being operational by the beginning of 2015. The Corps of Engineers is expected to issue its permitting decision this spring. “We are committed to doing business the Oregon way, and working with local companies to strengthen our economy. We’re ready to start work just as soon as we receive permits from the Corps and Oregon DSL,” said Moseley. The issuance of the three permits did come with somewhat of a surprise announcement, though. “After considering the comments received, DEQ has

also concluded that a further water quality certification – called a 401 certification – is appropriate for the project. DEQ is consulting with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Ambre Energy on the next steps for this certification,” said the state agency. “This is a huge reversal. From day one the DEQ has maintained that they were not requiring the 401 from Ambre, but now today the DEQ has raised their highest bar to coal exports yet,” said O’Leary. “Plain and simple the road to coal just got a lot rougher out in Oregon.” View the DEQ website related to the Morrow Pacific project at

CURRY: Opening ceremony pageantry required long hours of work From PAGE A1 stadium. “I still haven’t seen it on TV,” Kearsley said. From what he saw live on the stadium screens, he was satisfied with the time and effort put in. “The gratification was there for sure. It was really cool to see the camera angles… that aspect of the show – you don’t see that when you’re doing rehearsals. You get to capture the details that you don’t see. They’ll still pan out and see the full whale, but they’ll zoom in and see the (guys) doing back flips,” Kearsley said. Rehearsals started about a week after the trio arrived in Russia in early December.

That gave the group upclose looks at the performers practicing for several weeks. As the Olympics drew nearer, they had a couple of dress rehearsals. Kearsley said one of the things he feels that goes overlooked is many of the performers who took part in the larger, choreographed activities were simply volunteers – not experienced performers. One of the show’s headlining performers – ballerina Diana Vishneva – was sporting Curry Design’s light-up headdresses. The contraption is basically a hoop that goes on the performer’s head. Attached to it are 40 wires that are completely lit up. When the performers like Vishneva spun, the wires would create

a stunning visual. Vishneva was joined by 39 other performers wearing the illuminated hoops. The other task was creating the boyars – both male and female. In Russian history, a boyar is similar to a knight. For the ceremony – which told the tale of Russia – boyars and their female counterparts came onto the arena floor dressed in dazzling colors. These costumes were Curry creations. Kearsley said they were each made from about 30 pounds of foam, fabric and steel. “It’s a steel frame with a fabric body, hooped arms and a foam head. The foam head was essentially on a custom helmet that we made for each performer,” he said.

All of that was attached to a pack attached to the performer underneath the costume. The hooped arms are exaggeratedly long, allowing the performers to swing and dangle them all over, creating a party-like atmosphere. After the boyars entered the arena, they eventually circled together to form the fins of a whale. According to Russian folklore, an entire civilization floated in on a whale’s back, which is why during the ceremony the whale’s body was made of remarkable buildings. Part of the plan was to make these creations all very colorful to give an appearance of toys. It was immediately clear to Kearsley that

this goal was accomplished. “When I saw them on the screen, it really looked like toys. I was like ‘Holy crap – those look like toys,’” he said. In order to create such a grandiose pageant, the group had to put in long hours. There were some days that started at 8 a.m. and didn’t end until midnight. However, it wasn’t all business while they were over there. Kearsley said that for Christmas, he and Whitman went skiing on Krasnaya Polyana – the mountain where many of the Olympic events are being held. “It was beautiful up there,” he said. “That was one of the things I wanted to make sure I did. I wasn’t sure

I’d be able to, but we did.” One of the things they weren’t able to do was watch any of the events. They had to pack up all their props and head out of town just three days after the opening ceremony. Still, Kearsley said he would take the job again if asked. “It was a great experience. I would do it again for sure. Maybe not tomorrow, but I would definitely do it again. And I’m sure Harlan and Amy would say the same thing. There was a lot of stress involved, but once you see the final product it’s pretty rewarding. And once you hear the applause and the screaming people, it’s pretty cool,” he said.

BOISE: City looking for revenue tions have been on ongoing effort for city officials. “We’ve had numerous versions of offers and counter offers. We’re trying to resolve the environmental issues,” said Walsh in November 2013. Along with the veneer plant property, the city is also looking at purchasing property that would include Boise’s wastewater lagoon. “Boise has approached us and we’re looking at some exchange possibilities. They

have some pretty significant liabilities with sludge in the wastewater lagoon. We may exchange that or purchase the property,” Walsh added. What the city could do with that property once it’s purchased is still very much unknown. Environmental issues are a big part of that consideration. Still, Walsh says there is an opportunity for the city there. “It could possibly change the face of St. Helens,” said Walsh. “The thing about the sludge is that it is in the lagoon which probably isn’t

going to be used for anything other than a lagoon in the future. Back when they when really going guns, they had 48 million gallons a day pumping through that. Now they’re down to a million gallons a day. It’s oversized and it’s right on the water. There are better uses for that...

Indians on a roll entering Regionals Seven Scappoose wrestlers win league titles one day after beating the Tillamook Cheesemakers for the first time since 2006 by kyle boggs

For the first time since 2006, the Scappoose Indians beat the Tillamook Cheesemakers in a dual meet on Feb. 13. The next day, however, the Cheesemakers edged the Indians by two points at the 2014 Cowapa League Championship Meet. Seven Scappoose wrestlers won league titles. The Indians had wrestlers place in the top six of all but one weight class, but that wasn’t quite enough to overtake the Cheesemakers for the. Tillamook won, 352-350. In the teams’ dual meet, there was no doubt Scappoose was the superior squad. Junior heavyweight Colton Wheeler fought his way to a 4-0 decision in the opening match and the Indians cruised from there. Scappoose won 10 of the 14 matches for a 4921 victory. Wheeler’s win set the whole evening in motion for the Tribe. His opponent, Tillamook senior Dylan Jackman, was ranked sixth in

the state entering the match. Wheeler, on the other hand, was ranked 11th. After a quick victory by fall from sophomore Braxton Sue at 106 pounds, freshman Colton Bush earned a 13-2 major decision at 113 pounds, giving the Indians a 13-0 lead.

After a loss in the 120-pound match, senior Taylor Walden pinned his opponent in the second round at 126 pounds. It was the first of three wins for Scappoose seniors. A group of five Tribe wrestlers was recognized for Scappoose’s Senior Night

prior to the match. Beating the Cheesemakers in a dual was a fitting way to cap their four productive years in Scappoose singlets. The other two Scappoose seniors to earn victories were Hunter Hoyt at 145 pounds and Isaiah Goodrich at 182


pounds. They both pinned their opponents in the first round. Sophomore Cody Erhardt scored all three of his points in the final round of the 138-pound match to earn a come-from-behind 3-1 win. The Indians also had backto-back wins in the 160- and 170-pound matches. Junior Ben Gadbois earned a 6-2 decision at 160 pounds and junior Johnathan Tardif pinned Tillamook’s’ 170-pounder midway through the second round. In Astoria the next day, junior Devin Ray won his third straight league title. He won his first two matches by fall, then capped his crown with a 12-4 major decision in the 220-pound division. All three of Ray’s titles have come at that weight. Hoyt won the 145-pound division for the second year in a row. He pinned his first opponent in the second round, then earned a narrow 5-4 decision to reach the finals. The championship bout was no problem, as Hoyt won by technical fall, 16-0. Bush needed the least

amount of mat time among the Indian league champs. After receiving a first-round bye, Bush pinned both of his 113-pound opponents in less than 30 seconds. Sue got off to an equally efficient start. The 106 pounder won by fall in 22 and 29 seconds to reach the championship round. A 7-5 decision in the finals gave Sue a league title. Walden dominated all four his matches in the 126-pound division. He earned a thirdround fall, then pinned his second opponent in 14 seconds. He scored a 15-0 tech fall in the semifinals, then blanked his opponent in the finals for a 13-0 major decision. Erhardt was the only league champ to enter the meet without the top seed in his respective weight class. Erhardt was the No. 2 seed at 138 pounds. He pinned each of his first two opponents in the first round and then won a 6-1 decision over the top seed, Tillamook senior Anthony Imel. See indians, Page A14

St. Helens sends four to state by kyle boggs

PORTLAND — The St. Helens Lions girls swim team is sending its 400-yard freestyle relay squad to the 2014 OSAA 5A State Swim Championships. The relay team finished second behind the Wilsonville Wildcats at the NWOC Championship Meet on Feb. 14. The group’s time of 4:05.53 was fast enough to earn an at-large bid to the state meet Feb. 21-22 at Mt. Hood Community College. The points in that relay also helped the Lions to a third-place finish in the Northwest Oregon Conference. The St. Helens boys team finished fourth in the eight-team competition. Seniors Johanna Parkhurst and Tori Edwards and juniors Brook Hopkins and Jackie Prevish made up the relay team that is seeded 11th out of 12 entries for the state meet. “The girls 400 relay was great. All of the girls swam their best times,” said St. Helens coach Bill Rash,

who was named the NWOC Coach of the Year for girls swimming. It’s the third straight year Rash has been voted Coach of the Year by his peers. That relay team was one of two runner-up finishes for the girls at the meet. Prevish finished second in the 100yard freestyle race as well. She finished in 58.75 sec-

onds. Collectively, the SHHS girls had top-six finishers in 10 of the 11 events, including the other two relays. Hopkins had two thirdplace finishes. She ended up third in the backstroke with a time of 1:10. Hopkins and Parkhurst finished third and fourth, respectively, in the 200-yard individual medley.

In the 500-yard freestyle, it was Parkhurst and Edwards coming in third and fourth. Edwards added another fourth place in the 200yard freestyle. Prevish and sophomore Amy Sumsion gave St. Helens yet another 3-4 finish in the breaststroke. Senior Ashley Stewart had the squad’s other topsix performance, finishing fourth in the butterfly with a time of 1:17. Sophomore Cameron Lein had the top finish for the Lion boys. He was second in the backstroke. Lein just missed breaking the one-minute mark, finishing in 1:00.04. Junior Dillon Swatski was fourth in the backstroke with a time of 1:02. Swatski added a thirdplace finish in the individual medley. St. Helens had two topfive finishes in the 200-yard freestyle. Lein was third in 2:02 and sophomore Trevor Moss was fifth in 2:07. Senior Jacob Zartman took fifth in the breaststroke with a time of 1:13. Junior See shhs, Page A15


Herscovitz breaks Scappoose record by kyle boggs

ASTORIA — Sam Herscovitz set a school record in his first individual event at the 2014 OSAA 4A/3A/2A/1A District I Championship Meet on Feb. 15. In his second, he extended his high school swimming career. Herscovitz broke Ryan Rafferty’s three-year-old record in the 100-yard butterfly during finals to finish in third place in the event. Herscovitz’s time of 1:01.20 broke the previous record by .29 seconds. “I knew he had a shot at the record when he posted a 28.2 split on the first half of the race. Sam’s a finisher, he’s been doing it at the end of workouts all season,” said Scappoose coach David Richmond. “I just reminded him one time prior to the start of Saturday. He has shown excellent determination and grit all season. Everyone is happy for him and to do it in his last 100 fly of the season added some drama to the day.” Later on in the meet, the Scappoose senior took sec-

ond place in the 100-yard backstroke. His time of 1:03.95 earned him an atlarge bid to the 2014 OSAA 4A/3A/2A/1A Swimming State Championship Meet. Richmond said the two top-three performances from Herscovitz were the Indians’ most impressive showings of the meet, but added that freshman Dakota Poppenhagen’s performance in the 500-yard freestyle was right up there. Poppenhagen clipped 37 seconds off his time from preliminaries to finals, ending up eighth in 6:15.

“He got people’s attention this past weekend,” Richmond said. Senior Kenny Klippel added an eighth-place finish in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 26.73 seconds. The boys team finished seventh in the district meet. The girls had a better team outing, finishing fifth out of eight teams. Their top performance came from junior Stefany Alvarez, who had two top-four outings. She was third in the butterfly with a time of 1:15. She also took fourth in the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:20.

Senior Mary Rotter took sixth in the backstroke with a time of 1:22. Richmond pointed out that all six of his team’s seniors – Herscovitz, Klippel, Rotter, Lindsey Marquardt, Hailee Holmason and Kiara Single – swam at least one personal record time during their final meet together. “This has been a group that has contributed a lot to the program in regards to exciting races and commitment to each other,” Richmond said. He added that sophomore Macy Gray showed promise in her events. Gray took 10th in the breaststroke and 11th in the 500 free. “Macy is going to be an excellent swimmer. She is new to the sport but has so much upside. She will be fun to watch in the coming years,” Richmond said. Preliminaries for the 4A/3A/2A/1A state championships begin at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 21. Herscovitz’s event is estimated to begin at 8:15 p.m. The state finals for the backstroke start at 8:45 p.m. on Feb. 22. See team scores and results for each event at

kyle boggs / The Chronicle St. Helens freshman Maggie Cochran blocks a shot against Parkrose in the Lions’ first win of the season last week.

Lions snatch their first win by kyle boggs

It started by setting the tone on defense. The St. Helens Lions (1-17, 1-9) forced Parkrose (0-17, 0-10) into turnovers on the Broncos’ first four possessions on Feb. 12 pave the way to their first win of the season. The Lions rolled to a 45-24 home victory. Along the way, the Lions got contributions from a handful of different players. Senior Nicole Harcourt led the team with 11 points. She added five rebounds, five steals and four assists. Junior Rianne Tupper had 11 points and six rebounds. Freshman Maggie Cochran had six points along with seven rebounds and a monster blocked shot early on in the game. “I’m happy for the kids. It’s always good to get the win,” said St. Helens coach Billy McKinney. “But at the same time, I’m thinking we should have eight of these.” McKinney told his players ahead of the game that they needed to play more fundamentally sound basketball than the Broncos and avoid getting into an up-and-down game. The Lions did that. St. Helens was patient on of-

fense. More often than not, that led to an uncontested 3-pointer or a quality look in the key. “They relaxed a little bit, moved the ball around,” McKinney said. The momentum of that victory spilled over to the Lions’ Feb. 14 game against the Wilsonville Wildcats (7-12, 4-6). Despite falling into an 8-0 hole in the first quarter, St. Helens rallied to lead most of the game. A run from Wilsonville in the fourth quarter, however, gave the ’Cats a 48-45 win. Harcourt – named the St. Helens Booster Club’s girls basketball athlete of the month earlier that morning – carried the team on offense. She scored 20 points on the strength of 4-of-8 shooting from 3-point range. Sophomore Lydia Reardon added six points and six rebounds. St. Helens outrebounded Wilsonville 3823. In addition to Reardon’s six boards, senior Lucy KyleMilward had seven and Cochran grabbed six. Cochran added three blocks. “Maggie had two unbelievable blocks, almost sent one of them into the stands,” McKinney said. McKinney said the team’s See lions, Page A15

Tribe teams in ties going Four Lions finish league into last week of league duals with perfect records Both the boys and girls basketball teams at Scappoose High School find themselves in the midst of very close playoff races as the Cowapa League comes to a close. The boys (11-11, 4-4) are in a three-way tie for second place with the YamhillCarlton Tigers (11-10, 4-4) and the Seaside Seagulls (11-11, 4-4). The Seagulls took a 6043 win in Scappoose on Feb. 14, giving the Tribe its third straight loss. Scappoose also lost last week to No. 8 Tillamook (15-6, 8-0) 63-44, and to Banks (9-11, 3-5) 63-55. The good news for the boys is if they win their two games this week, they will still have a share of second place. Scappoose played Y-C on Feb. 18 and is at home against Astoria (5-17, 1-7) at 7 p.m. on Feb. 21. The girls (9-12, 3-5) are in a three-way tie for third place after dropping games last week to Banks (15-6, 7-1), Tillamook (5-16, 3-5) and No. 5 Seaside (19-2, 8-0). In the Cowapa League – for both boys and girls – the top two seeds assure themselves a place in the state tournament. The No. 5 team

Although the team dropped its final two Northwest Oregon Conference dual meets last week, four St. Helens High School wrestlers finished the conference dual season undefeated. Freshman Haidon Allen, junior Cody Jackson, freshman Myles Terry and junior Mario Olmedo all ended the dual season with perfect records after recording wins against Sandy on Feb. 13. Allen took a 12-0 major decision victory in the 113-pound bout. He ended up 6-0 in conference matches, winning two of those bouts by forfeit. Wrestling up a weight class, Jackson pinned his 132-pound opponent in the second round. Jackson had been wrestling at 120 or 126 pounds over the past month. That leaves him 5-0 on the NWOC season – one of those victories by forfeit. Terry won by fall for the 18th time this season. The 152-pound freshman continued his season-long unbeaten run. He wrestled six league opponents, pinning five of them. Olmedo earned a firstround fall in the heavyweight match. It was only his second contested conference match of the year, having been forfeited to twice as well.

The night before, St. Helens lost to Sherwood 50-30. Cooper and Allen pinned their opponents to start the night on a high note for the Lions. Cooper, at 106 pounds, won in 56 seconds. In the 113-pound match, Allen pinned Sherwood’s Dylan Cole in 3:04. The Lions’ next win didn’t come until the 152-pound bout, when Terry scored a first-round fall. In the following match, Nick Richardson pinned

Sherwood’s 160 pounder in the third round. That gave the Lions four falls from freshmen on the night. A Sherwood forfeit to Olmedo was the Lions’ other victory. This dual was originally supposed to be wrestled on Feb. 6 but was postponed by snow. Next up for St. Helens is the Northwest Oregon Conference Championship Meet Feb. 21-22 at Wilsonville High School. Wrestling starts at 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 21 and 10 a.m. on Feb. 22.

kyle boggs / The Chronicle St. Helens sophomore Quintin Galvin gets into the key during a game against Sherwood last week.

Home stretch may help St. Helens The St. Helens Lions (316, 1-9) went 0-3 during a three-game week last week. The Lions dropped games to the seventh-ranked Sherwood Bowmen (16-3, 9-1), the Parkrose Broncos (3-16, 3-7) and the No. 8 Wilsonville Wildcats (16-4, 9-1). With a pair of home games this week, St. Helens hopes to return to the win column. The Lions were at home against the Milwaukie Mustangs (5-14, 4-6) on Feb. 18. St. Helens has a Thursday night game on Feb. 20 against the Putnam Kingsmen (1-18, 0-10). The Lions beat the Kingsmen by 20 points in their first meeting. St. Helens held a halftime lead against Sherwood at home on Feb. 11, but the Bowmen came back for a 53-46 win. Senior guard Tanner Long led the way for St. Helens, scoring 19 points and grabbing eight rebounds. Sophomore guard Quintin

Galvin added 10. Long was the team’s leading scorer again the next night, when St. Helens lost on the road to Parkrose 5348. He scored 18 points and dished out four assists. Senior Cody Teyema was 4-of-6 from the floor and scored 10 points. On Feb. 14, Wilsonville held St. Helens to 25 shot attempts during a 48-35 Wildcat win. The Lions shot 50 percent, but simply couldn’t get shots off against the Wildcats’ pressure defense. Long led the team with 17 points. Senior post Corey West scored eight points on just two shot attempts. He made them both and was also 4-for-5 at the free-throw line.

SHHS: starts and breakouts will be focus From PAGE A13 Jonathan Prevish also placed for the Lions, taking sixth in the butterfly. “Jacob Zartman looked great in his breaststroke event. Jonthan Prevish wasn’t feeling great, but he pulled through. He is a competitor,” Rash said. St. Helens finished third in both the 200-yard medley relay and the 400-yard freestyle. Rash said overall, it was a good meet.

“Things went well. Eighty percent of our swimmers made top 12,” he said. Preliminaries for the 5A girls state competition begin at 9 a.m. on Feb. 21. The 400 freestyle relay is the last event in the competition. It is estimated to begin at 11 a.m. If St. Helens qualifies for

finals, the Lions will be back on Feb. 22. The 5A meet starts at 8:15 a.m. on Saturday, with the girls 400 free relay estimated to begin at 10:51 a.m. Rash said there are a few specifics they’ll be focusing on in the pool this week to assure the team will swim both

days. “We will be working on fast relay starts and breakouts off the wall this week. We’ve got nothing to lose going into state,” Rash said. See full team results and the top six placers in each event at thechronicleonline. com.
