County OKs jail levy for May ballot BY SHARI PHIEL firstname.lastname@example.org
An in-person appeal by local mayors, police and school superintendents appears to have convinced the Columbia County Commissioners to place a three-year levy to fund the county jail on the upcoming May ballot. “We believe that the Columbia County Jail is crucial to the welfare of our community, and we urge all citizens of Columbia County to support all endeavors to save our Columbia County Jail for the fundamental safety of our children, for the security of our families and for the future of our communities,” said Scappoose School Superintendent Stephen Jupe. Jupe presented a proclamation signed by all five school district superintendents that urged the commissioners to give voters another chance to pass the levy. Jupe presented the same proclamation to the Scappoose City Council a day earlier. The proclamation came about during the last superintendents’ meeting (the group meets monthly) and was signed by fellow superintendents Ken Cox (Vernonia), Lloyd Hartley (Clatskanie), Michael Carter (Rainier) and Mark Davalos (St. Helens.) The jail is currently scheduled to close at the end of the fiscal year on June 30. “We began to get increasingly nervous about the fact that the jail may not be there after June,” Jupe added. “It’s really to stir people up.”

It’s a sentiment shared by many others. In an open letter to the citizens of Columbia County, Sheriff Jeff Dickerson said closing the jail will have far-reaching impacts (see the full letter on page A5). “While no one can know for sure the degree to which the loss of the county jail will impact the way we live, I do believe with all my heart that it will be worse than most of us imagine,” Dickerson said. “There have been accusations of ‘scare tactics being used to motivate voters out of fear… these are not scare tactics, but they are facts that are scary.” School officials weren’t the only ones urging the county to give the levy another chance. Scappoose Mayor Scott Burge, Clatskanie Mayor Diane Pohl and St. Helens Mayor Randy Peterson were also at the commissioners’ meeting. Although unable to attend the Wednesday morning meeting, city officials from Columbia City and Rainier also voiced their support. “We’re at a point now where we’re at catch-and-release... where we’re at today – and that’s not counting where we will be at in June – is unacceptable. We really need to consider giving it one more shot,” said Commissioner Tony Hyde. What will be on the May 20 ballot will be a local option levy at the rate of 57.97 cents per $1,000 of assessed value for three years. The See LEVY, Page A4

CLATSKANIE — Area farmer Mike Seely and environmental activist group Columbia Riverkeeper filed an appeal with the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals in response to the county’s approval of a Port Westward rezoning application. “The next step will be to establish the record, which is going to be very extensive. That could take weeks or even much longer than that. These things typically play out over a 6 to 12-month timeframe,” said Dan Serres, conservation director for Columbia Riverkeeper. “But it can go much longer than that.” The Port of St. Helens submitted an application to the county’s planning department in early 2013 to have 957 acres rezoned from Primary Agriculture to Resource Industrial – Planned Development. Although the planning department recommended approval of the application, the Columbia County Planning Commission

voted 5-to-1 against the application, citing concerns that the application and potential use of the land lacked specificity. The application then went to the county commissioners for final review and approval or denial. Following three separate and very lengthy public hearings – two in Clatskanie and one at the Columbia County Courthouse – the commissioners approved the application, although with several conditions, including prohibiting the land from being used for coal projects. The conditions attached also removed two parcels of land designated as wetlands from the application, reducing the rezoned area to 837 acres. “There has been strong testimony throughout the whole process. That’s a big feather in our cap for the challenge, all of the people who showed up and talked about their farms, or about their knowledge of the soil in the area, it’s really going to help the case move forward,” Serres added.

Job search group a valuable resource BY SHARI PHIEL firstname.lastname@example.org
There’s no doubt that looking for work can be an extremely stressful. From filling out applications (either online or in person), making it through the interview process, and then waiting for days or weeks to hear back from a prospective employer, it all takes its toll. But you don’t have to go through it alone. Every Tuesday morning, the Job Search Group meets at Warren Community Fellowship with those attending talking about job search issues, possible leads, where to get help or even to host the occasional guest speaker. The meetings are free and open to the public and are meant to supplement rather than replace other resources, such as Worksource Oregon and Goodwill’s Job Connection. The Job Search Group, which recently celebrated its one-year anniversary, was organized and launched by St. Helens resident Cynthia Dailey-Hewkin. “I retired from Portland Community College, where I worked as a career specialist. One of my responsibilities there was to facilitate a
job search group. That was my favorite thing,” said Dailey-Hewkin. “We would talk about things that weren’t in the normal workshops I had to teach, like resumé writing and interviewing. So I was able to explore other things that were helpful to job seekers. When I retired it was one of the things I really missed.” There doesn’t seem to be a limit to either the kinds of jobs people in the group are looking for or the subjects to be discussed. Dailey-Hewkin said during the past year, job seekers have included registered nurses, high tech employees, construction workers, truck drivers, self-employed people, those in banking or finance, hospice workers and caregivers, retirees, those wanting or needing to go back to work, people wanting to change careers, and jobs seekers getting interviews but no job offers. The benefits of attending the group meetings seem to be just as varied. In addition to learning to build a better resumé or develop interviewing skills, there is also the opportunity to connect and share with others, provide inspiration to others, See JOBS, Page A4
Hate your job?
Looks like you aren’t the only one. In June 2013, Gallup, Inc. wrapped up a threeyear study in which the pollster found only 30 percent of working Americans said they were engaged in their work. The rest – a whopping 70 percent – either hated or were just uninterested in their jobs, with 52 percent described as not engaged and the remaining 18 percent as “actively disengaged” from their work. Gallup defines engaged employees as those who are “involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work and contribute to their organization in a positive manner.” But the disengaged workers “roam the halls spreading discontent,” said Gallup CEO Jim Clifton in the report. Having unhappy employees is also costly. Gallup estimates these actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. between $450–$550 billion each year in lost productivity. “They are more likely to steal from their companies, negatively influence their coworkers, miss workdays, and drive customers away,” said the report.

Apartments sustain heavy damage ST. HELENS — A Sunday morning fire at Hidden Oak Apartments on Gable Road has left a mother and her daughter without a home. Crews from Columbia River Fire & Rescue and Scappoose Fire District responded to a report of a fire at the apartment complex at 2600 Gable Road at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 23. According to Fire Chief Jay Tappan, 9-1-1 dispatchers were called by a concerned neighbor, Adam Jones, who observed a black film or staining around the entry door to apartment No. 20 next to his apartment. Jones also said he noticed blackened windows and subsequently felt the door, which was warm to the touch, so he promptly called 9-1-1. The apartment occupant, Kassidy Jensen and her 9-year-old daughter, were not at home during the fire. Fire crews arrived to investigate and found the second-story apartment had experienced a severe fire, but it had not gotten hot enough to penetrate the walls or break through the

door or windows. “The fire was a smoldering fire in a cloth-covered couch and the heat and smoke were almost totally contained to the apartment. It just did not get enough oxygen to flashover and ignite everything in the apartment,” Tappan said. The fire chief also said the fire was essentially out when the firefighters arrived and they did not need to use any water for extinguishment. Tappan went on to say that the apartment suffered significant heat and smoke damage and most of the contents were affected to some extent. However, there was no damage incurred by any of the adjacent apart-
ments in the eight-unit building and all of the other residents were able to return to their homes. The specific cause of the fire is still under investigation. Preliminary damage estimates are thought to be about $10,000 for the contents and another $25,000 in damage to the apartment. A pet rabbit was also lost in the fire. The occupants of the apartment are staying with family members in town. CRF&R and Scappoose Fire responded with three fire engines, a rescue unit, and several support vehicles. A total of 23 fire personnel were on scene with no reported injuries.
Rollover accident results in minor injury
One person received minor injuries in a two-vehicle traffic crash along U.S. Highway 30 near Deer Island on Monday. The accident occurred at around 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 24, when a 2003 Toyota pickup driven by Timothy Verney, 51, of Hillsboro, was eastbound on Highway 30 near milepost 34 when it drifted across the centerline. A westbound 1986 Ford F250 pickup driven by Boyd Martin, 55, of Scappoose, had just pulled out from a driveway into the westbound lane and saw the oncoming Toyota. Martin moved to the shoulder and was traveling about 25 mph when his vehicle was struck on the side. The Toyota pickup traveled off the highway and overturned on its side coming to rest on railroad tracks. A power pole was also damaged during the collision. Verney received a minor injury that did not require
hospital transport. Martin was uninjured. Portland & Western Railroad was notified to prevent rail traffic from traveling through the area until the pickup was removed. Columbia River PUD personnel came to the scene to repair the damaged pole.
OSP troopers from the St. Helens work site responded with Columbia County Sheriff’s Office. Senior Trooper Robin May is the lead investigator. Driver fatigue is investigated as a contributing factor. The highway was open to one lane of traffic and then fully open about 5:15 p.m.

This includes job leads from other participants, how and where to networking and learning about other job sources in the county. “It makes for a better integration with agencies that are already in place,” said Daily-Hewkin. The job search group also comes in handy for those applying for unemployment benefits. Beginning on Feb. 23, anyone applying for unemployment benefits will have to complete five work-seeking activities each week. Luckily, attending the weekly job search group meetings meets one of those requirements. The Job Search Group meets each Tuesday from 10–11 a.m. in room 201 at Warren Community Fellowship, at 56523 Columbia River Highway.

Criminals should be in jail I was in support of the jail funding last time around, as it was defeated and of course, this time around I’m strongly in favor of it and will do what I can to inform my neighbors, colleagues and friends of the importance of having a funded jail. Last week, Pacific Stainless was hit by a forger; they printed up fake checks using Pacific’s account number and passed them around town in Scappoose and St. Helens being hit the hardest, thousands and thousands of dollars. Pacific had to change checking accounts and the time and the expense to do so was very costly as well. Obviously since they were forged checks, our local bank, St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union, reimbursed our account for the fraudulent dollars that were stolen. I was then mortified to find out that our local merchants, most of them small, are the ones that will take the hit and lose the money. As a community, we will all pay for these losses when we shop locally. We were able to spot this rather quickly because the checks looked like they were from numerous, different local companies and just tied to our account. The criminal that did this is local and should have been locked up already from previous similar criminal activities, but with no room in our jail, C12147 he was back on the street to continue to commit crimes. We cannot expect our law enforcement officers and our judges and court systems to work properly without proper funding and I am urging you to vote yes on the upcoming jail-funding ballot. Jeff Kemp, President, Pacific Stainless Products Inc. Judicial temperament Like others, I was appalled at Jason Heym’s comments in a recent Spotlight article, “Appointed Judge Draws Three Way Race.” Mr. Heym may be an excellent attorney, but he plainly lacks the most important qualities for a position of power and authority: judicial temperament and impartiality. On his website, Mr. Heym says, “many judges feel entitled, and stroll into work late and leave early, while the problems they were elected to resolve compile.” He seems not to understand
that a judge’s daily schedule involves community breakfast and lunch meetings, the after-5 p.m. jury deliberations, the after-hours use of the court and judges for drug court receptions, and CASA advocates being sworn in. He also says, “When people in Columbia County have a very complicated case, they don’t run down to the local strip mall to hire an attorney. They come to me.” While a little posturing is normal in a political race, there appears to be a pattern of preconceived notion. He calls the judiciary bench lazy and entitled. He criticizes the ability of the Columbia County attorneys (and thus, their clients). The attorneys he just so glibly dismissed will be appearing in the courtroom if Mr. Heym is elected. Judicial temperament is being able to treat all people with respect and dignity. So far, Mr. Heym has shown disrespect for the citizens, judges, and lawyers of Columbia County, while simultaneously asking for our votes. He needs to learn to communicate respectfully, then run for a position of power and authority. Lori Furman, St. Helens Worth hearing? About the train issue in last week’s paper, I found the full-page ad quite humorous. It seems this Portland & Western Railroad, Inc. has an understanding of many that care less for others where money is concerned. I say humor as this reminds me of those that move into the wilderness to experience the silence of nature; then purchase a very loud off-road motorcycle. They don’t see the why – we live in a small town along the Columbia River; with the silence of a little town; and it’s quiet! With a train coming and going throughout the night and day blowing an unwelcome loud whistle, playing toot-toot, isn’t quiet. It has been to my understanding if railroad crossings are well marked with lights, bells, gates and then with an engine light flashing plus engine vibration, shaking the earth, my good man why that train whistle? Also, about making the statement that there are more people employed – just think how many more people could be employed if the oils were
not to close. We won’t have a clean city and county – or safety – if the jail closes. JoAnne Young, St. Helens
Get registered Wake up Columbia County and city voters who want to close the jail. Why? Why are you too tight to vote yes to get money for the jails,
so we do not have to close it? And why did you vote down the city’s levy to have more money to run the St. Helens Police Department? I have lived in a lot of counties in my life and have only felt safe in two. Those counties are Columbia County and Clallam County, Wash. I lived in Port Angeles, Wash., from December 1990 through December 1995. I was even able to work as a volunteer for the Port Angeles Police Department. We have the best law enforcement in the city and the county. The officers are not gun happy. They would save each other and, if necessary, someone innocent. They are very compassionate, well trained and well run in all aspects of law enforcement. They investigate everything thoroughly. They are a source of pride for our county. I want all of the young people 18 and over to go the elections department and register to vote so they can vote in November. My opinion in all of this is for you to delve in and study everything that will happen if the jail closes. We can’t move away – most of us. So push, push for the jail
the Oregon Department of Transportation, Public Transit Division and the Federal Transit Administration. Each of these grants comes with a local cash match requirement in the form of a community contribution that must be available in order to draw down those state and federal grants. Last year’s 64 percent cut in service was because CC Rider did not have a stable source of funding and wasn’t able to raise enough cash through community contributions to match the state and federal funds awarded. This cost our county $260,000 in funding that could have used to provide transit services and jobs to local people who drive the buses. All that would have been needed was $114,192 in order to get that $260,000. We would have had been have had $375,000 in additional service if we would have had the match money. I think services would not have been cut as drastically if the match for the grant had been there. CC Rider is given a small cash contribution ($30,000)
cal people who do not like to play by the rules will be emboldened to flagrantly violate the law, knowing Sheriff Dickerson there will be no repercussions, and 2) we will attract the criminal element from outside our county, who will also be emboldened in the same manner. • Crime will increase, and
it will be felt. I do not know to what degree it will occur, but I am sure we will all know about more and more instances of lawlessness inflicted upon our community. • Finally, at some point, there will be a call to fund our jail – only the cost will be roughly double to the taxpayer than it would have been if we had just kept it open all along. The reason is the federal prisoners who subsidize our jail (to the tune of $1.5 to $2.1 million per year) will all be gone, along with the revenue they bring in, and taxpayers who have gotten a state of the art, well-
run, efficient and effective facility without paying the total cost of the operation, would then be forced to pay the entire amount. These are not scare tactics, but they are facts that are scary. It is not my intent to overdramatize the risks, or to “advertise to criminals” that it will be open season in Columbia County. The fact is the criminals already know these things. I believe it is my duty as your sheriff, to warn you what the future holds according to my many years of law enforcement experience. I am committed to executing the will of the people with the re-
to be processed here before shipment? Log trains would be more welcome too if we would have our wood mills back. Wood mills processing logs would very welcome. Just think lumber mills giving employment work lowering home and property taxes. I’m seeing this to be worth hearing that unnecessary oil/log train’s whistling. I was also wondering if Portland is going to receive a tax portion to help pave their streets? Dean Ebert, St. Helens A new crossing We need a new Columbia River bridge and both Washington and Oregon should be involved in the project, with a few changes that would be more acceptable to the people who have to pay taxes. Where is a good start? Somewhere between St Helens and Rainier, not where the interstate bridge is now. That would be six lanes to gridlock. Downtown Portland is gridlocked every commute. It would be a bridge to Portland and back to Vancouver. If tolled, the Vancouver commuters would shoulder the lion’s share of the cost. The rest of the states’ residents would have little benefit from that location. This would require a new freeway south around Portland, relieving lots of traffic at the center of Portland. It will open up large area of development along that new corridor. Check with the Coast Guard and other agencies before you spend $130 million on design. Get the funding in place before you begin any designing phase. Don’t fly a German engineer over to look at plans that are flawed. Use American labor. We can repeal all the tax cuts for those highly profitable multi-billion dollar corporations and we will have some change left over for schools on both sides of the river. I challenge the legislators on both side of the river to check with your constituents to see if this plan would be acceptable to them, if so go for it. Ed Hayslip, Rainier
Support CC Rider I have heard comments regarding what Columbia County Rider provides to the citizens of Columbia County. The myths and misunderstanding of how funding works for transportation and other grant programs is always the same; if the commissioners got rid of their “pet projects,” i.e., public transit for seniors, disabled and those who need transportation to get to work, there would be ample money to fund the jail or any other project. This is not true and takes away from the valuable service that CC Rider provides. This county has a large number of people who commute to and from work and use public transit to get there. For those who use the bus to get to work, having bus service literally allows them to keep their jobs. Riding the bus saves them money. The funding that helps pay for public transit are provided through grants from

Guest Column To Columbia County Citizens: I am writing to you on my concern for the future of our jail and what I believe it will mean for our community. While no one can know for sure the degree to which the loss of the county jail will impact the way we live, I do believe with all my heart that it will be worse than most of us imagine. As we have seen our jail budget shrink over the last few years, and as we have publicized the early releases of inmates, there have been accusations of “scare tactics” being used to motivate voters
out of fear. I will tell you that I am fearful of what is coming if our jail closes—for the following reasons: • Taking people into custody on a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony charges will largely cease to occur. Last year, more than 1,200 local police arrests were lodged in our jail. Next year, police officers will still arrest and file charges, but they will not be able to find jail space anywhere to hold most law breakers, even for just one night. • I believe this will cause two things to happen – 1) lo-

sources committed to our care, and we are prepared to close our jail if voters this spring decide not to keep it open with the additional taxes we need to do it. I want to thank those citizens who worked hard gathering signatures to convince our commissioners to give voters one last chance to keep our jail open. I fully believe that if our jail closes, and a year from now we look back at the vote in May, we will not be blaming the commissioners at all for giving it one last try.

Obituaries Richard Leland Myers Richard Leland Myers was an honorable man who lived with passion and love for his family and friends. He was born in The Dalles, Ore., on Aug. 16, 1954, to William (Bill) and Richard Myers Betty Myers. The family resided in The Dalles, later moving to Nyssa, Ore., where Rick attended Nyssa High School. He followed his grandfather’s (Lincoln Myers) footsteps and participated in wrestling. Rick lettered in the sport while at Nyssa High School. After high school Rick moved to Portland to attend Portland State University.
He then moved to St. Helens and worked for Boise Cascade until retirement. He took pride in his work and performed at the highest standards with attention to the smallest details. He married Barbara Duren of St. Helens in 1979. From this union they had three children. They later divorced. One of Rick’s hobbies was attending concerts and volunteering at the Portland Blues Festival. He looked forward to his time with his friends and doting on his adored grandchildren. He was an avid OSU fan but during Christmas tree sales he would wear a UO Duck shirt and an OSU hat so a potential customer would not be offended. He leaves his family with more laughter than sorrow, more stories to tell and a community affected by a caring man. Rick, your special kindness to those around you will forever be in our hearts.
Rick was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by daughter Katie (Tyler), son Patrick (Kristen) and son Jonathan (Ashley); grandchildren Elainie, Emry, Haley Elizabeth and Jonathan James; brothers Bill of Beaverton, Walter of St. Helens and sister Marci Dutcher of Palm Desert, Calif. A wake is scheduled for Saturday, March 1 at 2 p.m. at the Village Inn banquet room in St. Helens. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations be made to Cascade Blues Association, 2020 SE Seventh, Portland, OR 97214 or a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be left at ColumbiaFH.com. Arrangements are by Columbia Funeral Home. Alice A. Sisco Alice A. Sisco was born on May 6, 1923, in Hyannis Nebr., and passed away on Feb. 18, 2014, in Redmond,
Ore., at the age of 90. A longtime resident of St. Helens, she moved to central Oregon in 1994 where she resided at Alice Sisco Crooked River Ranch. Alice spent a great deal of her life devoted to her Christian studies and served as district mission treasurer for the Nazarene Mission International for 25 years. She traveled to Africa and South America serving with the working and witness program. She retired in 2009 at the age of 86. Alice was preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Crandall; sons Freddie and Carl; and daughter Charlotte Gallagher. She is survived by her six sons: Ed, Larry, David and
Crandall of central Oregon and Richard and Irvin of St. Helens; as well as 15 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and eight great-greatgrandchildren.

Tanner Long is Elks Teen for January In The News ... St. Helens High School is pleased to announce that Tanner Long has been selected as the Elks Teen of the Month for January. Tanner said, “I am extremely excited and honored to be given this award. This is something I’ve always looked at and thought of as special but never would have guessed that I’d earn.” Tanner is an outstanding student, athlete and citizen here at St. Helens High School. When talking about Tanner as a student one teacher commented, “Tanner is very hard working and does his best every day. Tanner really helps to make a classroom a great place to be by asking questions, participating in activities and trying to learn as much as he can every day.” Other teachers commented on how much of a leader Tanner is in the classroom and how he has the respect of his fellow classmates. It was also said that he just brings a
positive attitude and is the type of person who comes to class with his cup empty everyday and Tanner Long wants it filled with new ideas and information. Tanner is not only an excellent student he also participates in athletics. He has played football, basketball and been on the track team since his freshmen year. He has been All League in football and basketball as well as being awarded the “Spirit of a Champion” by Bi-Mart.

Then set the traps. Tie the traps to something firm with drilled holes in the traps and heavy wire. When the rats learn to avoid the snap traps, you can try glue boards (also a quick learning curve for rats) or the Ratzapper™, a clever device that works on D-cell batteries and which some rats don’t seem to figure out.

This prevents rats from burrowing into the pile. I have also seen compost bins with a galvanized expanded metal base with onequarter inch gaps or quarterinch hardware “galvanized after welding” (GAW) cloth that has been coated with heavy UV resistant PVC. Stainless steel hardware cloth is also avail-able. All seemed to work just fine. The hardware cloth is also a good option for keeping moles out of newly constructed raised beds.

Rats Gardeners and farmers often face rat infestations in barns or around homes. Rats need food, water and shelter. There can be many sources for the feed. Often it is a neighborhood concern, especially Chip Bubl with more people in urban/suburban loca-tions raising chickens and other animals. Neighbors need to devise a coordinated and consistent plan to reduce rat problems. Stored grain or grain left by livestock around feed bunks can easily attract a thriving rat population. Sanitation is a must. Spilled grain must be cleaned up and stored feed put into rat-proof containers. Homeowners unwittingly develop rat families by feeding pets outside (leaving feed in the bowls) or by composting kitchen scraps. Rats are very skilled at entering tight places and feeding quite invisibly. Bird feeding can also support rats. It is easy enough to improve pet feeding. Simply offer only what the dog or cat will eat at one time. Clean up waste grain around bird feeders. Compost is a little more complicated. Many people like to mix kitchen refuse with other plant clippings. The kitchen scraps provide

They are, clockwise from top left, junior Devin Ray, freshman Braxton Sue, senior Hunter Hoyt and senior Isaiah Goodrich.
Scappoose wins first District I title by kyle boggs email@example.com
GLADSTONE — Fourteen Scappoose Indians placed at the Special District I Championship Meet on Feb. 21-22 to lead the Tribe to a regional championship. Scappoose outscored secondplace Tillamook 294-276 to give the Indians their first District I title. In the other three years that the Cowapa League has been a part of Special District I for wrestling, Scappoose has finished sixth, third and was second last year.
The Indians produced district champions at four different weight classes. Senior 182 pounder Isaiah Goodrich won his second straight district title. Sophomore Braxton Sue won a crown at 106 pounds. Senior Hunter Hoyt is the 145-pound champion. Junior Devin Ray won a title at 220 pounds. Both Ray and Sue are the top seeds in their divisions for the 2014 OSAA 4A State Wrestling Championships. Goodrich is seeded third and Hoyt has a four seed. Goodrich pinned his first two opponents in a combined 46 seconds. He then won a 22-5 technical
fall in the 182-pound semifinals. He beat Estacada’s Nicholas Ledbury 10-3 in the finals. Ray earned his third trip to the state meet in three years by going 3-0 at 220 pounds. He won by fall in his opening match, then beat Banks’ Twister McComas in a chippy semifinal match, 16-7. Ray won the championship bout by fall in the first round. Hoyt pinned all four of his opponents at 145 pounds. The first two falls came in the first round, the next two were in the second round. Sue won by tech fall in the first
round. Following a bye, he had a first-round fall in the semifinals. He then edged Astoria’s Colton Walker 6-5 in the finals. Junior Johnathan Tardif and sophomore Tyson Broadbent each took home second-place finishes. Tardif won by fall and major decision to reach the 160-pound finals, where he dropped an 8-2 decision to Banks’ Travis Thompson. Broadbent – who was only cleared to wrestle on Feb. 20 after missing much of the season with a knee injury – was the runner-up at 195 pounds. He had two first-round pins to reach the finals. In the champi-
onship match, Tillamook’s Rafael Gomez won 7-2 in overtime. In addition to those six wrestlers, six other Indians will be on the mats at Memorial Coliseum for the state meet Feb. 28 and March 1. Senior Taylor Walden qualified for the state tournament for the fourth time. He took third in the 126-pound weight class. Walden dropped a 3-0 decision in the semifinals to eventual champion Donald Wenlund of Estacada. Following the defeat, Walden pinned his next two opponents. See champs, Page A15
Lions finish third in NWOC St. Helens splits close contests

WILSONVILLE — Led by a half-dozen state qualifiers, the St. Helens Lions wrestling team finished third at the 2014 Northwest Oregon Conference Championship Meet. The Lions’ 189 points left them trailing only Sandy’s 355 and Sherwood’s 250.5 when the two-day meet concluded on Feb. 22. The Lions’ six-man contingent of wrestlers heading to the 2014 OSAA 5A State Championship Meet includes freshmen Tyler Cooper, Haidon Allen and Myles Terry, sophomore Michael Bowen, junior Mario Olmedo and senior Zilen Nichols. “Our kids wrestled well. We got six of them going to state,” said St. Helens coach J.R. Jackson. Cooper, Terry and Nichols each took second place in their weight class. Cooper won his first match by fall. He followed that with a 7-6 win in the semifinals. During that semifinal victory, however, the 106 pounder hurt his back, forcing him to injury default in the championship bout. Terry pinned his first opponent, then won an 8-0 major decision in the semifinals. Liberty’s Hunter Dehlin topped Terry 2-1 in the finals, giving Terry his first loss of the season. In the 170-pound bracket, Nichols won his first match

with a pin just 16 seconds into the bout. He then pinned his semifinal opponent in the second round before falling to Sandy’s Devin White in the finals. In addition to the three second-place finishes, St. Helens had three third-place finishes. Allen pinned his first opponent at 113 pounds, then lost a 9-3 decision to eventual champion Halen Jolley of Sherwood. Allen responded with a 15-0 technical fall and a second-round pin to take third place. “Haidon wrestled well,” Jackson said. Bowen had a tough draw, facing the No. 1 seed in the opening round of the 126-pound bracket. He lost a 6-2 decision to Sherwood’s

sion, Olmedo dropped a 2-1 decision in two overtimes but shook it off to finish third. His younger brother, freshman Miguel, finished fifth in the same weight class. Miguel Olmedo was one See lions, Page A15
The St. Helens Lions (4-17, 2-10) played a pair of home games last week that were decided by a combined three points. The Lions lost a onepoint game to the Milwaukie Mustangs (6-15, 5-7) on Feb. 18, then turned around and beat the Putnam Kingsmen (1-20, 0-12) by two two nights later. Early on, it looked like St. Helens would blow out Putnam. The Lions made their first three field goal attempts and took a 10-0 lead. Putnam didn’t score a field goal for the first 7:30 of the game. By the time the first period ended, six different Lions had already scored. “The 2-3 zoned us. We usually don’t get zoned. We split the zone and people came ready to play today. We weren’t timid. We knew we beat them already, so we
were carefree, relaxed,” said senior Tanner Long. “There was no special scheme.” The Kingsmen chipped away over the next three quarters and eventually trimmed the deficit to a single point. Long corralled a rebound – his 14th of the game – on the Putnam end of the floor with under a minute to go. A Kingsmen player tied him up for a jump ball, and the possession arrow gave Putnam the ball under its own basket with 51 seconds to go. The Kingsmen had a few shot attempts clank off the rim, and after a scramble in the key, the Lions came up with the ball near half court with under 10 seconds to play. Senior Corey West rebounded a missed free throw, then made one of two See shhs, Page A14

With a win over the Astoria Fishermen (5-19, 1-9) on Feb. 21, the Scappoose Indians (12-12, 5-5) finished the Cowapa League season tied with the Seaside Seagulls (12-11, 5-5) for third place in the conference. That forced a one-game league playoff between the two teams. It was to be played on a neutral court at Banks High School on Feb. 25, after The Chronicle’s deadline. (For results, visit thechronicleonline.com.) As the Indians have done all season, they relied on senior Mitch Davis and junior Chase Johnson to provide much of the offensive firepower against the Fishermen. The duo combined for 42 points in a 59-53 victory. “They’ve been a steady force all year,” said Scappoose coach Rahim Tufts. Johnson had 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Davis came up huge down the stretch. He scored 10 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter. Two of those points came at a key point as Astoria was clinging to its last breath. Davis stole the ball near mid-court and took it in for a lay-in. “I wanted to be out of the way of the guy because I didn’t want him to foul me, so I could get a lay-up or at least try to make a shot,” Davis said.
KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle Members of the Scappoose bench are brought to their feet by senior Mitch Davis stealing the ball and taking it in for a lay-in late in the game on Feb. 21.
Senior Will Sprute came up with three clutch rebounds for the Tribe down the stretch as well. “He’s our energy guy. He comes off the bench, starts, and just plays as hard as he can. One hundred and ten percent all the time,” Davis said. After the game, Tufts said the win was a breath of fresh air. “Sometimes you forget how to win close games after a little while,” he said. “Had we dropped this, we’d have
played Banks at home on a five-game losing streak. Now we go play Seaside at Banks on a neutral court on Tuesday. Hopefully with a little momentum and we can realize what worked well tonight and what didn’t.” Prior to the win over the Fishermen, Scappoose dropped a 59-46 game to Yamhill-Carlton. Davis had 20 points against the Tigers and Johnson added 13. If Scappoose beats Seaside, the Indians will be on

Tribe wins last two league games The Scappoose High School girls basketball team (11-12, 5-5) won its last two regular season games last week. The Indians easily defeated the Yamhill-Carlton Tigers (0-23, 0-10) for the third time this season, winning 65-35 on Feb. 18. In a much closer game on Feb. 21, Scappoose beat Astoria (8-16, 4-6) 43-39. The win over the Fishermen gave the Indians sole possession of third place in the conference and set up a league playoff game between Scappoose and Astoria on Feb. 25. That game was scheduled to begin after The Chronicle’s deadline. (Visit thechronicleonline.com to find photos and
results from the game.) Scappoose had its Senior Night against Astoria. With nine seniors on the roster, it was only fitting that one of them came up with the key plays down the stretch to preserve a victory. Abby Kessi finished the game with 18 points and nine rebounds, and the senior was clutch on back-to-back possessions late in the game for the Tribe. After Astoria took a one-point lead late in the contest, Kessi scored an andone to put the Indians on top by two points. She scored the Indians’ next basket as well, giving Scappoose a 42-38 lead that the Tribe would not surrender.
“We made some plays at the end, capitalized on a couple of key plays,” said Scappoose coach David Spirlin. In addition to the big outing from Kessi, Scappoose got eight points from senior Lacey Updike. Senior Jenny Vardanega added three points and eight rebounds. Haley Wight, yet another senior, had five rebounds and five assists along with two points. Against Y-C, eight Scappoose players registered at least two field goals. Kessi again led the way, finishing with 16 points, six assists, five rebounds and three steals.
Updike had 15 points and nine rebounds. Vardanega finished with six points, seven rebounds and three steals. Wight and freshman Alyssa Spang both scored seven. If Scappoose beat Astoria on Tuesday night, the Indians will enter the OSAA play-in round as the No. 3 seed in the Cowapa League. That means Scappoose will be on the road on Feb. 28. The Tribe’s opponent will not be known until Feb. 26. Read more about these two games and Scappoose’s postseason fate at thechronicleonline.com. – By Kyle Boggs

Following the Putnam win on Thursday night, Long discussed the team’s approach to its final week of the season. St. Helens played Sandy (17-5, 8-4) on Feb. 25 and closes out the season at home against Parkrose (4-17, 4-8) at 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 28. Both of those teams beat St. Helens in their first meeting. “We know that we probably aren’t going to go to the playoffs. The seniors are trying to finish the year off trying to go out strong, get two wins. We lost to Sandy, lost to Parkrose. If we can beat them, it kinda changes
our season,” Long said. “We still wish we went into the playoffs, but it is what it is. We struggled at the beginning of the season so now we look forward to see what we can do best.” The Lions would need a lot of help to reach the postseason. They are currently ranked 32nd in the OSAA Power Rankings. The top 24 teams advance to the play-in round, meaning St. Helens would need to leapfrog eight teams in the rankings. 1st 2nd 3rd 4th F MHS 18 8 12 17 55 SHHS 13 11 12 18 54 ST.

St. Helens struggles on the road Two road games last week proved to be a tough task for the St. Helens Lions (1-19, 1-11). The Lions lost a 63-33 Northwest Oregon Conference game to the Milwaukie Mustangs (11-10, 8-4) on Feb. 18. On Feb. 20, the league-leading Putnam Kingsmen (14-7, 12-0) beat
St. Helens 60-41. Missed free throws were costly for the Lions against the Kingsmen. St. Helens missed 19 of its 30 free-throw attempts in the 19-point defeat. Freshman Maggie Cochran scored a team-high nine points. Freshman Leslie Curtiss scored eight. Senior
Nicole Harcourt had seven and junior Rianne Tupper scored six. Tupper had the hot hand early on against Milwaukie. She made a pair of 3-pointers in the opening quarter and then added another in the second period. She finished with a team-high 12 points.
Sophomore Lydia Reardon scored five. St. Helens closes out the season this week. The Lions were at home against the Sandy Pioneers (11-10, 6-6) on Feb. 25. St. Helens goes to Parkrose (0-19, 0-12) for the season finale at 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 28. – By Kyle Boggs

LIONS: ten place in top six From PAGE A13 of four fifth-place finishers for St. Helens. The others were sophomore Jose Silva at 120 pounds, freshman Nick Richardson at 145 and sophomore James Poland at 195. That gave the Lions 10 place-winners out of the 21 wrestlers who entered the tournament. “Our kids wrestled exceptionally well in the medal rounds. Not the final rounds, but the third-fourth and fifthsixth matches. Every kid that went for third or fourth got third, and every one that went for fifth or sixth got fifth,” Jackson said. Poland nearly gave the Lions seven state qualifiers. In the match to advance to the third-place bout, Milwaukie’s Anthony Flynn beat him 10-8 in overtime. “Next year he’s gonna be an asset. He has improved a bunch the last couple weeks,” Jackson said. The Lions were without junior Cody Jackson, who
