Local PGE moving forward with Port Westward plans legislator tackles trafficking BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

The 76th Oregon Legislative Assembly may have returned to work just days ago but at least one local legislator is already wading into the political fray. Betsy Johnson State Sen. Betsy Johnson (D-Scappoose) crossed the party aisle to join with state Sen. Betsy Betsy Close Close (R-Albany/Corvallis) to introduce legislation to “fight the purveyors” of the sex trade in Oregon and protect its victims. “We want to end the menace of sex trafficking in this state,” said Johnson. “By making some changes to Oregon law, this legislature can help prevent trafficking from happening, prosecute it vigorously when it does, and give its victims hope.” Both senators have said that being willing to work across party lines, and with organizations like Shared Hope International – a nationally based 501(c)(3) founded by then Congresswoman Linda Smith – legislation to protect youth from the commercial sex trade can be enacted. “This is an issue of safety and justice,” said Close. “When you hear the stories and statistics surrounding this modern slave-trade, it cries out for action. I think Republicans and Democrats together can take a stand for the victims of sex trafficking.” Close recognized that for some, it is easier and less disturbing to not “confront the horrors” tied to issues like Oregon’s sex trade. “We would prefer to ­­­­ See SLAVES, Page A7

CLATSKANIE — Utility giant Portland General Electric announced recently that it is moving forward with previous plans to build a flexible generating resource at Port Westward in Clatskanie. Construction on Port Westward Unit 2, selected as the successful bid in a capacity request for proposals to help meet customer needs and provide system reliability, will begin this year. PGE expects to have the resource up and running by 2015. “It certainly adds another investment to the property, which increases the tax base,” said Port of St. Helens Executive Director Pat Trapp. “Of course, it sees greater use of the capability of that

land out there and it adds to the energy cluster that we’re focusing on.” The Port of St. Helens owns the property at Port Westward, which in turn is leased by PGE. The utility company has leasehold control and right of review of 850 acres at the Port Westward industrial park along the Columbia River. One upside sure to please locals is the creation of some 200 construction jobs at the facility. The expected cost to build will be between $285 million and $310 million, excluding allowance for funds used during construction. “There’s an economic impact to that construction,” said Trapp. “I don’t think it’s a long lead time but I don’t know where they stand with all of the permit issues.” ­­­­ See PGE, Page A7

Martial arts school kicks off fundraiser BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

SCAPPOOSE — World Champion Taekwondo of Scappoose kicked off a fundraiser for Grant Watts and Otto Peterson schools with a

demonstration assembly in the Grant Watts gym on Jan. 31. During the assembly, members of the World Champion Taekwondo school demonstrated their taekwondo skills to a roaring applause from the young crowd by going through the forms, breaking boards and

kicking apples out from behind students’ heads. The assembly was put on to kick off the fundraiser. Students can enroll in four weeks of taekwondo training for $40, with all proceeds going to Grant Watts and Otto Peterson schools.

World Champion Taekwondo has done this fundraiser each of the last two years. Over that time, the school has donated more than $2,800 to Grant Watts and Otto Peterson. The age range for classes is 4 to adult. Classes are usu-

ally 45 minutes long, beginning at 3:30 p.m. and ending at 7:45 p.m. on weekdays. On Saturdays, classes run from 10 a.m. until noon. Anyone interested in enrolling should contact World Champion Taekwondo at 503-543-2667.

Sunsation-al salon gets new owners Innovative SCAPPOOSE — While the outside of the building might look the same, customers coming in to Sunsations Gifts and Tanning on Columbia River Highway in Scappoose will notice lots of changes. Among those changes are new owners, Cheri and Mike Gardner. The couple took ownership of the business in January and have been working nonstop to upgrade, update and uplift the business. Along with cleaning and painting the interior, the couple has replaced all of the bulbs in the tanning beds, brought in new retail items and new tanning products. What attracted the couple to taking over the business? “I had been tanning here for quite a while and Debbie (Knight) approached me about selling. And we thought it might be a good fit for us,” said Cheri Gardner. Sunsations offers two types of tanning – a 12-minute and a 20-minute full spectrum tan. “Both are very good. People like each one for dif-

ferent reasons,” said Cheri Gardner. “Some people like the faster, in-an-out tan with the 12-minute bed.” The salon also offers a UV-free Mystic spray tan that uses a top of the line tanning solution. “The results are really quite nice,” she said. In fact, it’s the preferred method for tanning for her husband Mike. Single tan prices range from $16.50 for the premium sunbed to $8.80 for the standard sunbed and $20

for Mystic tanning. There are also prices for 10 tans, 20 tans and 30-day packages. Customers can also kick off their weekend with Cali Fridays, which includes a session in the tanning bed and a Mystic tan for $25 (regularly $30). Looking for something special to go with that tan? Sunsations features apparel, jewelry – along with after tanning products – in its retail section. “We’re not trying to

compete with local stores. We’re going for what you don’t see in the community, stuff from Saturday Market, stuff from Portland, things that are made in the U.S.A.,” said Mike Gardner. Sunsations, at 52561 Columbia River Hwy., in Scappoose (next door to All About Pets) is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.–7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.–2:30 p.m. For information, call 503-5434113.

Sheriff’s office steps up patrols for Super Bowl weekend BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Extra patrols were out and about in Columbia County over Super Bowl weekend. With an anticipated increase in weekend gatherings featuring the consumption of alcoholic beverages, sheriff’s deputies were on patrol in an effort to discourage intoxicated driving. The extra patrols were part of an ongoing effort to reduce intoxicated driving in Columbia County and across the state

thanks to traffic enforcement grants provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Here is the tally from the weekend patrols: 35 traffic violations/warnings; 12 traffic violations/citations; two DUII arrests; four misdemeanor arrests/other; two alcohol related arrests/other; two felony drug related arrests; and one felony arrest/other. “The focus of this safety blitz was primarily alcohol related traffic issues, but our deputies encountered and

addressed other public safety concerns along the way,” said Lt. Dustin Hald. “We are very fortunate to receive traffic enforcement grants from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, it really gives our deputies the ability to get out and focus on traffic safety.” Hald also said similar types of “blitz enforcement” for traffic safety are scheduled throughout the year. “We really feel that this type of enforcement makes our roadways a safer place,” said Hald.

CCRider shifts gears to better serve community Energy department to approve PGE request ST. HELENS — On Feb. 13, the Columbia County board of commissioners will hold a public hearing on proposed service changes to the CCRider transit system, as recommended by the Columbia County citizens transit advisory committee. The changes are intended to allow CCRider to improve service in a way that provides for long-term growth and helps the system to live within its means in the present. Funding for public transportation is provided by the Oregon Department of Transportation, Public Transit Division. The state funds programs on a biennial basis. Rider staff has been working with the CCCTAC to address the budget for FY 13-15. Because of flat funding levels and because the county requires the department to establish an operating reserve, some reductions in service must take place. The CCCTAC meetings began addressing the services related to the upcoming budget process, started in October of 2012. At these meetings the CCCTAC reviewed current services and prioritized future services to assure that any changes would be dictated by the following priorities: 1. Least effect to the majority of riders. 2. Allows for no single service to be eliminated. 3. In areas where service will be reduced, assure that service will continue on a consistent enough basis, to insure that riders will continue to have public transit as an option. 4. Identified Dial-a-Ride service for the elderly and disabled as a priority for continuation with a change

from a general public service to a qualifying service that focuses on rides for medical trips, special needs, and life necessities, such as grocery, pharmacy, banking, etc., and other needs as space is available. Changing this service from a general public to a service which focuses on riders with special needs, such as the elderly/ disabled and those with medical needs, encourages riders who are able to use our Fixed and Flex routes, which provides lower fares. 5. Changes allow for adequate management of the transit system in addition to compliance with County finance and budget processes. “In the last year, CCRider provided approximately 105,000 rides to county residents, and we are very much aware that there are people behind the numbers that rely on public transportation,” said Joe Burks,

Runners share passion for making a difference

Two local friends are on a mission to get fit and help others. Before running even close to the distance of a half marathon, Laurie Cleveland, of St. Helens, was alreay driven to complete the 13.1 mile distance. She was also determined to get into great shape for that half marathon and knew that she wanted to do it for a bigger purpose. When Cleveland learned of Team Challenge, a half-marathon training and fundraising program for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, she shared the information with Bill Gibson, a friend and coworker at the Wildwood Golf Course. That was when she discovered her friend’s stepfather had passed away from Crohn’s just a year and a half prior. Both were committed at that instant. Just mention Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis to a friend and it’s likely they will have a close connection to the diseases. Currently, there are approximately1.4 million Americans who are dealing with these chronic, and often debilitating, digestive

diseases. That is nearly 1 out of every 200 people. The symptoms can be different from person to person and for some it can be life altering. Just leaving the house can be a stressful. The two friends dedicated themselves to the effort and raised $3,941 and $4,120, respectively, for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. They held a golf tournament fundraiser at Wildwood Golf and reached out to their families and friends. They both successfully completed the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon in December after 14 weeks of training After finishing the half marathon, Cleveland said, “Four months ago I signed up to fundraise for a cure for a disease I had barely heard of and didn’t even know anyone with the disease or what Crohn’s was. Today, I proudly stand with friends and families fighting together, day in and day out to beat these diseases. I have been so moved by teammates and their families sharing warming and saddening stories. Team Challenge has changed my life. I just hope my fund-

raising will someday help change someone else’s.” CCFA directs funds towards research to find a cure and improve treatments, educational programs and support services for patients and their families. Many of the Team Challenge participants themselves are battling Crohn’s or colitis. Cleveland and Gibson will continue their mission to help those dealing with digestive diseases by training and fundraising with Team Challenge again this season and take it one step further. They say they have learned a great deal from Team Challenge coaches and will now serve as mentors, helping the program’s new participants achieve their goals. Beginning March 2, Team Challenge participants will begin training for an event of their choice that will give them the chance to run or walk through either the downtown streets of Chicago on June 8), the scenic beaches of Kona, Hawaii on June 23, or the hillside vineyards of California Wine Country on July 21.

The application deadline is March 15.

Letters Respect and responsibility A little history for the current debate on the control of weapons concerning the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution – that assault type weapons possibly are not the cause – it is as everyone knows – the lack of responsibility and consciousness of the operator. In 1914, a British Army Sgt. Snoxall set a record (which still stands to this day) with a single bolt action Lee-Enfield (303 round) – 38 hits on a 12-inch target at 300


yards in one minute – that particular rifle of the day did have a 10-round magazine. I like a lot of people my age and background have been around weapons my whole life. Myself, like father, uncles and many members of my family have owned and cared for personal weapons of various types – as myself and vast genealogy line of family members have also been trained by the best instructors the armed services of United States of America could provide.

Time to stand down BY ASHLEY POST Community Action Team

When was the last time you slept in a tent because it was the only place you had to call “home” and not because you were camping? Many of us will never know what it’s like to call a tent home because we have nowhere else to go. Or carry everything we own in a backpack so that we are able to pick up and move when the police find out we’ve been squatting in the park or the woods just outside of town. Many of us will never experience homelessness. Each night about 285 people in Columbia County go to sleep without a permanent roof over their heads — some wondering where their next meal will come from, others worrying about how they will access the medical care they desperately need. While one could write endlessly about homelessness in our community, and perhaps a sequel to this article will begin to unpack this issue, this piece is meant to spark a conversation and

an awareness of homelessness among veterans in our county. Conservative estimates suggest that 20 veterans find themselves homeless in our county each night. However, many believe this number is actually much higher because of the challenges faced when conducting the annual “Pointin-Time” count which establishes the baseline for defining homelessness in our county. Regardless of the exact number, we need to be disturbed by the idea that any Veteran would be left without a place to call home. These are men and women who selflessly offered everything they had to protect our livelihoods, uphold our freedoms and defend our homes. Someone once described service members as “individuals who have given our country a blank check and signed it with their lives.” As a community we need to be cognizant of the sacrifices these men and women have made and match it equally with an atmosphere of support and appreciation. There is a wide spectrum of factors that may contribute to veterans’ homelessness includ-

ing untreated service-related trauma, difficulty reintegrating into civilian life, and inability to secure post-service employment. While identifying the root causes is critical to understanding each veteran’s experience of homelessness, as a community we need to adopt a general understanding that the transition from active military service to civilian life is difficult and riddled with obstacles and challenges. This understanding will help us foster an environment of support where Veterans can access the resources they need to make this transition as smooth as possible; as well as a tangible appreciation for the service and sacrifices they made for us. Words and phrases like “atmosphere” and “fostering an environment” are abstract but there are concrete steps we can take to improve our community’s rapport with our Veterans. A simple one is supporting Columbia County’s first Stand Down being held at the end of February and hosted by Community Action Team and the Veterans Employment Specialists at WorkSource

Oregon NW. During times of war a “Stand Down” was an opportunity for exhausted troops to rest, take care of personal needs, and enjoy simple comforts like a hot meal at a safe location. Today the term refers to a grassroots, communitybased movement designed to demonstrate a community’s support for Veterans, especially those experiencing homelessness, and provide them with one-stop access to the resources they need to begin rebuilding their lives. Columbia County has never held a Stand Down for its veterans. Our neighbors in Clatsop and Cowlitz coun-

ties have held very successful events in the past that have drawn many veterans from our community. It is time that we increase our awareness of veterans’ needs and host our own Stand Down to show that we are grateful for their service and are dedicated to supporting them. The Stand Down will be held at The Olde School on Feb. 23 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and it is open to all Veterans. Participants will have access to employment and health services as well as free medical screenings. Community Action Team hopes that this will become an annual event that grows to serve Veterans in

our county and its surrounding areas. Please consider getting involved in Columbia County’s first Stand Down. Community Action Team is in need of volunteers to assist with the set-up and break-down of the event, as well as monetary and product donations (a list can be found at that we can offer to Veterans at the event. For more information about the Stand Down and other ways you can get involved contact Pam Daniel, Veterans Case Manager at Community Action Team, at (503) 366-6591 or pdaniel@

Putting the second amendment into historical context BY DUSTY HUMPHREY St. Helens

I would like to respond to Mr. Klingbell’s letter of Jan. 30, regarding the Second Amendment and firearms. First, let’s talk about the Constitution. The Constitution was written by men who believed that women shouldn’t vote, that people of African descent should be enslaved, and that the “arms” we claim the right to bear were single-shot muzzle-loading muskets. They also felt as strongly that soldiers should not be housed in private homes, a right they enshrined in the Third Amendment, which is about as short and simple as the Second. The point is that as brilliant as the founders were, as amazing a document as the Constitution is, we are now 220 years past that age. Times have changed. The basic principles of the document, the foundation, are still sound – democracy is the best form of government, there

should be checks and balances on power, a free people must have the right to speak freely, to assemble, to defend themselves in court, and yes, the right to bear arms – but there are aspects of life and our world now that simply did not exist in the 1780’s, and which the founders did not predict. So it falls to us to consider, not what the founders of the 18th century would have decided, but what we can do that lives up to the wise standard they set. The argument that guns are merely things with no particular relationship to harm is absurd on its face. All the other things that can be used to kill are not intended for that purpose; firearms are. A car, a knife, a bat – all of these have other uses, other purposes, and so their possession does not necessarily put the thought of violence into one’s mind. They can be used to kill, but it’s a misuse, and so needs special effort and some overriding malice to turn such a thing to such a purpose. But firearms

are the most effective and efficient means of doing harm to another person in our world. They make killing someone easy, and doing so is exactly their proper intended use, what they are designed and built for – using them for a non-violent purpose requires special effort. This is why they are the center of this debate, why they are the one “tool” mentioned in the Constitution. If firearms were merely tools no more dangerous than a stick, then why would anyone wish to defend them? After all, if only people kill people and guns don’t have anything to do with it, then only people hunt, and only people defend their homes and persons, and only people fight against tyranny. And that’s essentially true: you could hunt with a bow, defend your home with a bat, fight a war with pipe bombs and homemade Molotov cocktails. But you wouldn’t want to. You’d want a gun to do those things. Not any other “thing” in the whole world of potentially harmful “things” would

are Americans. We have the right to bear arms – but does that include kids in kindergarten, and younger? The critically ill, the comatose, the criminally insane – or just the criminals? Because right now, we have enough guns to arm them all, and as you say, thousands more are being sold every day. Even if you can somehow think that every single person in this country should own a gun –­ do they all need to be 100-round armor-piercing assault rifles? Personally, I don’t like guns at all. I’d be really happy if every single firearm just vanished from the face of the Earth. But that’s never going to happen. Anyone who wants to ban guns in this country should realize that that’s never going to happen: there are more than 300 million legal, privately owned guns in this country, and the right to keep and bear arms is defined, in short and simple terms, in the Constitution. But people who fear that a limit on assault weapons or high-capacity

work so well as a gun. So guns are special. They do require careful consideration, and we cannot simply look to the Constitution as the only word that needs to be said on the subject. The Constitution lays out the foundation -the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed -- but it’s up to us to decide: should that include fully automatic military weapons? High-capacity magazines? Armor piercing bullets? If what we want, as law-abiding citizens with the right to bear arms, is to defend ourselves and our homes, to hunt and to target shoot -- do we need the ability to fire 100 armor-piercing rounds in seven seconds, or without reloading? Do we need to be able to buy our guns without registration or a background check, which is no more than we do to buy a car? You mentioned the statistic that there are more than 300 million privately-owned firearms in this country. Doesn’t that number give you pause? That’s as many guns as there News Staff

magazines will lead to a complete ban on guns should realize that that, too, is never going to happen: as long as this is America, we will always have guns. The slippery slope has a very clear stop on it, and it’s called the Second Amendment. A lot gets said about the Founding Fathers: that they were racist, elitist white men, that they were divinely inspired, that they were the greatest visionary geniuses in all of history. One thing is certainly true: the founding fathers were willing to compromise. Abolitionists and slave owners, federalists and anti-federalists, Christians, Deists and atheists – they all agreed to the compromises enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Perhaps, along with looking to their words, we should also look to their actions, and try to find some middle ground, so we can all enjoy our most important, inalienable rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

taken cattle, horses, deer, elk and other various animals; for food, protection and to relieve suffering. From this love and lore of weapons also the teachings of respect and responsibility; not only for the care, maintenance and skill with a weapon; but also the respect and responsibility of the living. There may be some legislative changes to the control of weapons but truly the changes need to be more of the teachings of the cherishment and the love of life. David E. Teuscher, Rainier Just asking The news this last month has been over gun control. I have three guns. I haven’t used them much since coming to Oregon. In North Dakota, I used the .22 to shoot gophers, rats and etc. The shotgun was used for duck and pheasant; the .30–.06 to hunt deer. Guns don’t kill people. It’s the nitwit behind the gun. As to guns keeping me safe, I haven’t figured that out yet. Of course if someone let me know they were coming over to rob me, my guns would come in handy. But if they break into my home while I was sleeping, the guns in the gun cabinet wouldn’t do me much good. Now as to the school shooting, what would be wrong with putting an electric eye above the school door along with a loaded gun? If someone came in with a gun, that would be it. We have drones that seem to do pretty good job. Just asking. Clarence Nickel, St. Helens Raising awareness I am a 17-year-old student at Scappoose High School. I am doing a paper for my civics class about pro-choice. While writing my paper it came to me that I wanted to do more than just write a paper, I wanted to share my thoughts with other people in our area. Abortions, unfortunately for many people, are in a way a form of birth control. Billions of dollars are spent a year on them, not only by individuals but also by taxpayers’ money. I think as a community we could do something to raise awareness about places that offer free birth control. Also, I think it is our responsibility as a community to spread awareness about these topics and make sure that young as well as older people know there is always someone to help you make the correct decisions for you in what can be a stressful time of pregnancy. Ashley Oyler, Scappoose Jobs, jobs, jobs Everybody in the Northwest should be interested in the proposed coal terminal projects. At Port Westward, for example, Kinder Morgan will construct a $150 million terminal facility. In order to ship the coal from Wyoming, the project will require that the rail lines be modernized to accommodate the weight and speed of traveling cargo. As we continue to weigh these

projects, there is one recurring thought comes to mind: jobs, jobs, jobs. Oregon’s construction industry has struggled more than any other during the Great Recession. With unemployment rates well above the national and state averages, opportunities as alluring as these don’t come around too often. For those concerned about the environment, Oregon’s development regulations are one of the strictest in the nation. If these projects have any major mishaps, our state agencies will discontinue their operation. Let’s give the middle class a chance. Build terminals now. Laborers’ Local No. 296 is supporting this issue. Ken Morgan, Portland Save the revenues Coal exports that are proposed in our communities are not just about jobs or the economy, it’s really about the people who live there. The reality is that our rural areas are struggling. Green jobs are great and they are necessary as they promote the cleaner future, but we need reliable jobs now. County budgets such as Columbia County, have huge budget gaps because of the loss of federal timber payments that have ended. Schools and public buildings in these areas are falling apart. We need real sources of revenue to ensure the future of these communities. We can’t wait for the green economy to arrive, because by then it will be too late. Tax revenue from proposals like the Port Westward project can save them. Russ Garnett, Roofers Union Local No. 49 Rational policies Urban environmentalists exerted their power over helpless rural communities resulting in significantly reduced timber harvests the end of the last century. For generations, timber jobs were a way of life, a family tradition. Now that we have transitioned to other industries, environmentalists continue to prevent us from working. You will never hear of those who believe in furthering a negative environmentalist agenda. We all care about preserving the environment and believe in rational environmental policies. In order to protect the land we live on, we must be able to afford to live on that land. The economic future of rural Oregon depends on projects like the Port Westward project at the Port of St. Helens to create sustainable, living-wage jobs that empower us to provide for our families and our communities. Ingrid Chamberlain, St. Helens Lack of responsibility The Chronicle is published only once a week. Yet week after week there are errors in your paper that reflect lack of proofreading. It doesn’t just happen once in a while, it occurs in every weekly publication. The Jan. 30 edition switched titles of continuing stories from A5 to A6. I had to search for the story! Isn’t there explicitly a position designed for editing, i.e., the editor? When there are such obvious errors such as entire paragraphs mixed up, mislabeled

headlines, repeat sentences and spelling errors that go beyond “spell check,” it takes the credibility away from the story or article and I personally feel that The Chronicle does not respect it readers well enough to deliver a quality product. Bobbie Hering, St. Helens Entitlement mentality I have to thank Valerie Walker (The Chronicle, Jan. 30) of Columbia Pacific Food Bank for providing the platform for me to express a point of view. Whatever happened to the sense of pride that comes from personal accomplishment, earning one’s own way and selfless joy in helping those less fortunate? I was raised with a respect for charity, which was supposed to begin at home. Aren’t we supposed to first take care of home and family and after that is accomplished look outward to help others? In her article, we get a lecture from someone with seemingly very little life experience, working on the public dole, giving out what is not hers and she can’t even provide for herself! It’s not just her, mind you. The entitlement mentality is appalling. The more young people are indoctrinated in a belief that this situation is good for county, state, and country the bigger hole we dig for ourselves. Yes, we should help those in needs but to applaud gaming the system that even she condemns seems very wrong indeed. My grandmother used to say, “Have you no shame?” Earning what one has and enjoying the fruits of labor has obviously taken a backseat while solving perceived social problems with other people’s money has taken its place. Unfortunately, the system as it exists has been twisted to give some false sense of entitlement. Frankly, I can’t afford organic produce, yet she buys it with our money and that’s okay. It’s her right? It is also my right to look down my nose and wonder how the heck this ever happened. We simply cannot afford to continue spending what we do not have and worse let those in charge of the distribution flaunt the fact that they waste the hard earned money and charity of others. Ed Rabinowe, Deer Island Placing the burden In times of need, it is necessary to accept help from others, but I do not follow Valerie Walker’s logic on the virtues of using food stamps. The funds for her food stamps may have already been allocated at the national level, but if she and others do not use those funds, the allocated funds will return to the general fund and be used for some other public purpose. If she and others do use those

funds, next year’s allocation will increase dramatically. Over the last few years the growth in the Food Stamp program has been astronomical. Ms. Walker’s spending that money in Columbia County may help Columbia County, but that money came from someone. Some American had to earn it, or, if it is borrowed money, all Americans and their children will be paying interest on Ms. Walker’s food stamps for years to come. Should we in Columbia County be proud of putting that burden on other Americans? Chana Cox, Scappoose Still relevant The following is a letter I wrote in February 1995. I believe that it is even more fitting in this land today than it was then: The pro-life movement is getting a bad rap; and not all from the Pro-abortion crowd. Far too many otherwise noble Pro-life people are jumping on the wagon with the Abortion crowd, wringing their hands, and crying, “Ain’t it awful that those medical doctors were murdered.” But there are two-singular, undeniable facts in these cases that are being ignored: 1.) When Michael Griffin shot and killed Dr. David Gunn, and when Paul Hill allegedly shot and killed Dr. John Britton, neither man murdered an innocent victim. Rather, each executed a professional killer. And 2.) Neither of those professional killers will butcher any more innocent children. Since 1973, when the Supreme Court of these United States declared that it is lawful to murder innocent babies in their mother’s wombs, this nation has murdered now over 30 million of them. And, although we must say that the pro-life movement is a noble cause, we must also admit that their nearly 22 years of “Peaceful Protests” have protected not one of those precious little ones from death. Is it right to kill to stop killing? Good question. During World War II we invaded Germany and killed thousands of Germans to, among other things, stop the murder of innocent Jews. During the Civil War, the North invaded the South and killed thousands of Southern boys to, among other things, stop the enslavement of people. Both Hill and Griffin claimed their action was “Justifiable Homicide.” They were right. So, I can hear the screaming demands: “OK, Dean, would you do the same?” And my; answer, “NO, I don’t have enough guts; but I am not going to condemn either of those men for theirs.” One way or another, fellow Americans, our own Holocaust must stop.

think something this terrible couldn’t happen in our state. But it is happening,” said Close. “And to ignore it is to be complicit in it. It is our responsibility to not only be aware but to act in the defense of sex trafficking victims, and to fight for its end.” Shared Hope International recently gave Oregon a “D” on its report card, detailing several flaws in the state’s sex trafficking laws. Close said she plans to work with Johnson to enact legislation that will eliminate

those flaws and close loopholes to bring an end to sex trafficking in Oregon. The legislation introduced by the two state senators, which shares concepts proposed by Shared Hope, would criminalize domestic minor sex trafficking, increasing sentencing allowances for consumers, suppliers and facilitators of sex trafficking, providing greater protection for child victims of sex trafficking and giving investigators and prosecutors additional tools. For more information about Shared Hope International, go to

Port Westward Unit 2 was the company’s benchmark proposal in a competitive bidding process seeking approximately 200 megawatts of flexible peaking capacity. The process was initiated in 2011 and overseen by an independent evaluator who reports to the Oregon Public Utility Commission. “Port Westward Unit 2 will be an important, versatile resource to meet our customers’ current and future needs,” said Jim Piro, PGE’s president and CEO. “The new natural gas plant will be a highly efficient and environmentally responsible facility designed for maximum flexibility to help

meet real-time fluctuations in customer demand and integrate variable renewable resources like wind and solar into PGE’s system.” Piro also said the new facility would serve as a “peaking” resource, which would help meet energy needs during high demand times while maintaining system reliability. The 220-megawatt plant will be sited adjacent to PGE’s existing natural gas-fired Port Westward and Beaver plants at the port. Port Westward Unit 2 will use reciprocating engine gensets supplied by Wärtsilä. Black & Veatch and Oregon-based Harder Mechanical, as a contractual joint venture, will have the turnkey contract for

construction of the project. An RFP was conducted pursuant to competitive bidding guidelines established by the Oregon Public Utilities Commission, using objective scoring criteria intended to identify projects that will provide the best balance of cost and risk while meeting PGE customers’ needs for reliable, affordable electric power. The RFP also sought 300 to 500 megawatts of baseload energy resources, as well as seasonal capacity resources. PGE has completed its evaluation of bids. The company will begin negotiations soon with the top bidder from the final short list of baseload projects. The bids on the final short list include power purchase

agreements and PGE-ownership options. PGE intends to ask the independent evaluator to monitor the negotiations for the baseload resource. The company will also conduct negotiations to secure power purchase agreements for the seasonal capacity resources. PGE also issued a separate RFP last year, seeking approximately 100 average megawatts of renewable power to help meet Oregon’s Renewable Energy Standard. The company is currently evaluating the bids received. Final selections are expected by June 2013, and PGE expects the resources acquired will be brought into the company’s portfolio in the 2013-17 timeframe.

expert in whole-home energy efficiency. The contractor performs a free home energy assessment (valued at $500) to pinpoint energy waste and identify opportunities to make the home more comfortable and energy efficient. Based on the assessment, the homeowner then receives a custom assessment and bid with recommendations for their home energy remodel, which combines multiple energy efficiency upgrades such as insulation, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, sealing air leaks, windows, and more to transform the energy efficiency and comfort of a home in one convenient project. Once the project scope has been determined, the homeowner works with their lending partner to secure a no-money down, competitive-rate loan. Once the project is completed, Clean Energy Works conducts an independent inspection to ensure all upgrades perform as promised.

All Clean Energy Works contractors employ staff certified by the Building Performance Institute, a national credentialing program for home performance evaluation, diagnostics and installation that promotes energy savings, comfort, building durability, and health and safety,” Koelfgen added.

Libraries look for ‘community reads’ ENERGY: trust serves 1.5 million Oregonians From PAGE A1

Libraries across Columbia County are inviting their communities to read a common book related to this year’s “Our Community Reads” theme: the Holocaust. The purpose of Our Community Reads is to bring reading to the forefront of public discourse. If everyone reads the same book at the same time, it is hoped that it will inspire discussions, connections and a shared perspective among Columbia County residents. This year’s adult selection is “Night,” by Ellie Wiesel and the teen selection is “The Devil’s Arithmetic,” by Jane Yolen. Speakers from the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center will be hosted in the communities of Rainier, Vernonia and St. Helens. Jeannie Smith will speak at the St. Helens Public Library on March 21 at 7 p.m. She is the daughter of Irena Gut Opdyke, a Polish Catholic, who, over a twoyear period, risked her own life in order to protect the lives of 12 Jewish refugees she secretly took under her care. Mark your calendar now for what promises to be a very special evening. There are lots of other events going on already. These events are free and open to the public.

How it works First, homeowners apply to the program through a fast and easy online application. Eligible homes must be single-family, owner-occupied, detached, built before 1993, and located in a Clean Energy Works service area. Condos and mobile homes are not currently eligible for the program. Once accepted, homeowners are then paired with a certified contractor, an

Homeowner benefits Why should homeowners go through Clean Energy Works rather than doing the work or hiring a contractor themselves? “In short, Clean Energy Works Oregon takes the uncertainty out of home energy upgrades. Clean Energy Works Oregon offers a bundled set of services to help customers transform the comfort and energy efficiency of their homes in one

programs. And for every 100 homes served, Clean Energy says it creates 10 new construction jobs, generates $1.4 million in economic activity and saves $50,000 annually in homeowner dollars. The group has already received four applications from homeowners in the tri-county region, although none have come from Columbia County yet. But the group is ready for them. “As we launch the region we’re working with the contractors to grow the market while balancing their capacity,” said Wendy Koelfgen, market development manager for Clean Energy Works. “Since our goal is to help grow a self-sustaining residential energy efficiency marketplace, we want to be sure we are supporting the community to expand both capacity and demand as much as possible while still maintaining high quality and great results.”

Crushers continue their winning ways The Columbia County Volleyball Club 14U Black Crushers won their fourth straight tournament on Feb. 2. The Crushers picked up wins against some highly ranked teams on their way to the title. The tournament started with a 25-12, 25-14 win over the MHAC Black team out of Gresham. After that, the local squad beat NW Volleyball Academy out of Vancouver, Wash., by a score of 25-13,

25-13 to earn a spot in the championship match. Rimrock Black out of Eastern Oregon dealt CCVC its first set loss of the tournament, but the Crushers responded for a 12-25, 27-25, 15-6 win. “Our girls showed a lot of character and poise battling back against a good Rimrock team in the finals,” said coach Tina Edwards. The Crushers go to Eugene for a 32-team tournament Feb. 16-8.

When it comes to Going up for the shot scheduling, Cowapa model tops NWOC There are two basic methods for scheduling high school league basketball games: Stack all the games – boys Kyle Boggs and girls; freshmen, JV and varsity – at one host site with two gyms, or have all the boys teams at one host site with the girls teams flip-flopping to the other school’s host site. Scappoose does the former, St. Helens does the latter. (Example: Last Tuesday the St. Helens girls teams played at Liberty High School and the St. Helens boys teams were home against Liberty; Scappoose played Astoria with the varsity boys at 5:30 and the varsity girls at 7.) I’m a proponent of the Cowapa League’s approach. To me, it has more positives than the Northwest Oregon Conference’s operating procedure. The biggest pro is student support. After the boys game, quite a few of the players were in the stands cheering on the girls team. When the teams flipped order on Friday, the girls stuck around to watch the boys, while the boys watched the first half of the girls game before heading into the locker room to get ready – just like the Scappoose girls have done all season. This model is also more friendly to paying spectators. For fans who have to pay – and aren’t parents – they get a 2-for-1 deal. Instead of going to watch whichever team is at home Tuesday and Friday, they get to watch both teams. The flip side of that coin is there aren’t as many home dates. Instead of being

able to count on a home game two nights a week, it’s sometimes one night, sometimes two, sometimes none, depending on the schedule. For the high school administrators, the Cowapa League schedule is ideal. It cuts in half the number of nights staff is needed on hand to supervise games. That doesn’t quite work at Scappoose, where there’s only one gym at the high school. That means additional staff must be at the Peterson Gym. But if the NWOC were to adopt this approach, the administrators would be able to staff games as they currently do. At 5:30, there are two games going on at SHHS – one in the big gym, one in the back gym. So if there were two games going on at 4, 5:30 and 7:15, the district could save money on staffing games. The downside of the stacked approach is the early start times for parents. JV and freshman games start as early as 4:00. One varsity team is playing at 5:30. For working parents, that can put a lot of stress on trying to get out of work in time to make it to their kids games. As someone without kids whose job it is to be at the games, it’s much nicer for me to be able to cover a 5:30 and 7 p.m. game than it is to have to rely on scorebooks from road games. St. Helens tried the stacked model earlier this year and it seemed like a success. I, for one, hope it’s a model the NWOC athletic directors discuss at length the next time they get together.

The Oilers drove through to the top in fine style after dropping the Buckeroos 2119 in a close battle last week. The only other close competition which the Oilers encountered during the first half was at the hands of the C of C quintet in the first week of the season.

Standing in for an injured friend

After Brittany Catlow suffered a season-ending knee injury, her good friend Abby Kessi paid her tribute by taking her jersey

BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle


o teammate ever wants to see their best player go down with an injury. That’s even more true when that teammate and best player also happens to be your best friend. That was the case for Abby Kessi, a junior on the Scappoose High School basketball team. During a Jan. 11 game against Central, her teammate Brittany Catlow went down with a knee injury. At the time, it didn’t appear serious. Catlow even tried to play in the team’s next game against Tillamook. “I played for about a minute,” Catlow said. “I tried, but (Coach Kevin Buse) took me out.” Catlow won’t be returning to the lineup this season

because of what turned out to be a torn ACL. Even with the injury, she’s still a big part of the team. She still comes to practices. She still sits on the bench at games. And, because of Kessi, she still finds a way onto the court during the games. At the beginning of the season, Kessi wore No. 42. Catlow, meanwhile, wore No. 12, the same number she wears on the volleyball court. After Buse found out Catlow would be out the rest of the season, he approached Kessi with a request. “They’re best friends since they were young kids. I decided to have Abby take that uniform,” Buse said. Since then, it’s been Kessi wearing No. 12 on the court for the Indians. “He asked me if I would like to wear her jersey because she wasn’t going to be able to play anymore this

season. I said, ‘Yeah I want to,’” Kessi said. “And then we can also give my jersey to someone else and have an extra player on the bench too. I was really honored to wear it.” That Abby decided to make the switch seemed natural to her dad, Will Kessi. “No, not at all,” Will said when asked if he was surprised to see his daughter in a different jersey. “They’ve been playing together since they were in fifth grade.” In those seven years as teammates, Catlow and Kessi agree they’ve developed quite a bond. That’s why there’s nobody else Catlow would have liked to turn that jersey over to. “If I wanted anyone to wear it I wanted Abby to wear it because she’s like my best friend and she’s one of

Hang up another banner Scappoose girls win their fourth Cowapa League title in four years

BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — Another season, another Cowapa League title for the Scappoose High School girls swim team. Hanging a league championship banner at Eisenschmidt Pool has become a habit for this group of seniors. They’ve earned the right to do so in each of their four years with the Indians. On Feb. 1, they added the next chapter by pulling off an 8-point upset over the favored Tillamook Cheesemakers at the 2013 Cowapa League Championship Meet. Scappoose scored 299 points to win the four-team meet. Tillamook won the boys meet with 327. Scappoose finished fourth with 158. The girls squad showed a lot of improvement from starting the season as an inexperienced group. “It’s really remarkable considering we graduated 12 seniors from last season’s girls team and many of them were state finalists,” said Scappoose coach David Richmond.

Balanced scoring pays off for Lions

KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle

Scappoose sophomore Stefany Alvarez finished first in the 200-yard freestyle on Feb. 1.

Plenty of training went into the pool to allow the team to win a fourth straight title. “This is one of the hardest working teams we’ve coached. They got after it day after day

and stayed late without complaint. Even on voluntary practice days half our girls team would show up,” Richmond said. “We’re very proud of them.”

Leading the way were senior Sadie Krahn and sophomore Stefany Alvarez. Krahn and Alvarez both won one race

Last week started out poorly for the St. Helens Lions (10-8, 4-4), but after a dry spell of 7:56, things turned around and worked out nicely. St. Helens was nearly shut out in the first quarter of its Jan. 29 home game against the Liberty Falcons (7-11, 17). Jared Bonney’s 3-pointer with four seconds to go in the period accounted for all the Lions’ scoring in the first. That wasn’t the case in the second quarter and for the rest of the game, however, as the Lions went on to win 43-37. St. Helens followed that with its highest-scoring outing of the year on Feb. 1. The Lions beat the Parkrose Broncos (3-14, 1-7) 78-55. In both games, the Lions had balanced production on offense. Four players scored between 8-10 points against Liberty, led by 10 from junior Corey West. Senior Cody Beisley scored 9; Bonney and junior Tanner Long each scored 8. The Lions also got big contributions from senior post Nathan Hunter, who pulled down nine rebounds, and senior guard Cody Galvin, who dished out six assists. West was again the team’s

leading scorer against the Broncos, finishing with 19 points. He was one of five St. Helens players in that game to score at least 9 points. Beisley finished with 12 and Galvin had 11. Long and Hunter scored 9 apiece. Entering the game, St. Helens had scored 60 points in a game just once all season. The Lions had that going into the fourth quarter against the Broncos. St. Helens took a commanding lead early on in the game and kept it the rest of the way. The Lions had plenty of easy lay-ins after easily navigating the Broncos’ fullcourt pressure. Galvin created his own pressure on defense, coming up with five steals. St. Helens played Sherwood (10-7, 5-3) on the road on Feb. 5. The Lions host the 10th-ranked Wilsonville Wildcats (13-5, 5-3) at 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 8. LHS SHHS

Scappoose in control of Cowapa fate With more than half of the Cowapa League season in the books, a second straight league title is in sight for the Scappoose Indians (10-9, 51). The Tribe won both of its games last week and got some help from the Seaside Seagulls (10-10, 3-3), who knocked off the Yamhill-Carlton Tigers (10-8, 5-1) on Jan. 29. Y-C’s loss dropped the Tigers into a tie for first place in the league with the Indians. Scappoose can assure itself the league’s top spot by winning its final four games of the regular season. Last week the Indians won a close one over the Astoria Fishermen (14-6, 3-3) on Jan. 29, then took a blowout victory over the Tillamook Cheesemakers (5-12, 2-4) on Feb. 1. Scappoose beat Astoria, 45-41. Senior guard Zach Smith led the team in scoring in both games. Against Astoria he had 19 points and grabbed six rebounds. Senior Chris Tinning scored 10 points against the

Fishermen. His two free throws with 1:11 left in the game made it a two-possession game, as they put the Tribe ahead 42-37. Astoria called timeout immediately after the second make and the Scappoose student section broke into the “Happy Birth-

day” song for Tinning. While the birthday boy and Smith combined for most of the scoring, seniors Paul Revis and Kyle Kramer did the dirty work. Revis stuffed the stat sheet with 6 points, five rebounds, five assists and five steals.

Kramer had six rebounds, half of those coming on the offensive glass to extend possessions and irritate the Astoria coaching staff. Smith opened the Tillamook game with three 3-pointers in the first quarter and finished it with a game-high 27 points. Smith’s 11-point first quarter set the tone and helped the Indians take a 5-point lead in the opening period. It was in the third quarter, however, that the Tribe really put the Cheesemakers away. Seven different players scored for Scappoose in the period and the Indians took a 20-point lead into the fourth quarter. Junior Mitchell Davis scored 13 points for the Indians and Kramer added 9. Scappoose hits the road this week with games at Banks (3-15, 0-6) on Feb. 5 and Seaside (10-10, 3-3) at 7 p.m. on Feb. 8. See box scores and photos from last week’s games at – Kyle Boggs

Win over Sherwood puts SHHS 2nd in league duals BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — A 1-2 finish in the final event of the afternoon clinched a win and a second-place finish in the dual meet season for the St. Helens Lions girls swim team. The Lions went into the 400 freestyle relay with a fivepoint lead over the Sherwood Bowmen on Jan. 31. Needing to put two teams in the top three, St. Helens took the top two spots to earn a 91-76 win in the team’s final home meet. The boys ended up third in the dual meet standings after dropping a 98-72 meet to the Bowmen. St. Helens coach Bill Rash

said he thinks his teams will end up right around those two marks at the Northwest Oregon Conference District Championship Meet, which is coming up Feb. 8-9 at Parkrose High School. Rash said the Prevish twins, sophomores Jackie and Jonathan, came through with impressive performances under less than ideal conditions against Sherwood. “The Prevish twins swam and they were really sick. They were an inspiration to our team,” Rash said. They swam and swam well. Jonathan took third in the 200-yard individual medley. Jackie came away with wins in both the 50-yard freestyle and the 100 breast-

stroke to pace the girls team. The Lions won only two other events – senior Emily Spears in the 100 freestyle and sophomore Brook Hopkins in the 100 backstroke – but kept coming up with second- and third-place finishes to amass more points than the Bowmen. After the meet, Rash rattled off a long list of Lions who excelled during the meet. “Great swims from Devon (Brady), Andrew (Collson), Brook and Dillon Swatski. Zack Kessinger and Jared Houghtelling also did real well. Jojo Parkhurst also swam great, Lauren Chambers keeps dropping time too,” he said. Collson and Brady owned the short freestyle races. They


went 1-2 in both the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events, with Collson winning the 50 in 23.32 seconds and Brady winning the 100 in 52.12 seconds. Freshman Cameron Lein earned the other win for the Lion boys, taking the backstroke in 1:04. Now the Lions focus their attention on the district meet. All district champions qualify for the state meet the following weekend. After the district champions are taken from each of the six swimming districts, the swimmers with the next six fastest times from all of the district meets also qualify for state. The district meet starts at KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle 3:30 p.m. on Friday and 3 p.m. Sophomore Jackie Prevish won two individual events against Sheron Saturday. wood despite feeling ill on Jan. 31.

St. Helens drops two games Lions overmatched by Bowmen Shooters were knocking down one 3-pointer after another for the St. Helens Lions (8-10, 2-6) on Feb. 1 in a Northwest Oregon Conference game against the Parkrose Broncos (8-8, 5-3), but the Lions couldn’t find an answer for the Broncos’ 6’1” Audrey Frison. St. Helens made nine 3s but Frison scored 22 points and grabbed 22 rebounds in a 62-57 Parkrose win. The road loss to the Broncos came on the heels of a 4924 defeat to the Liberty Falcons (8-10, 6-2) on Jan. 29. Sophomore Rianne Tupper made five 3s and was 5-of-6 at the free-throw line for St. Helens against Parkrose. She finished with a team-high 20 points. Senior Jillian Ross added three 3s of her own to score 13 points. Sophomore Michelle Sass scored 11 and had the team’s other long-distance bucket. Despite the lights-out shooting, St. Helens couldn’t match Parkrose’s duo of Frison and guard Jacia Jointer, who scored 27 points. “The kids played hard all the way to the end,” said St. Helens coach Billy McKinney. “It was good. We’re still getting better, still learning.” Earlier in the week, the Lions had a tough time connecting from the field. Junior post Lucy Kyle-Milward led the team with 6 points against the Falcons. St. Helens was at home

Indians win 3rd straight

JOSIAH DARR / For The Chronicle

Scappoose’s Taylor Walden scored a 5-2 decision over Tillamook’s Hector Rojo during a Feb. 1 dual meet.

Scappoose drops dual meet TILLAMOOK — The Cowapa League’s two wrestling powerhouses – Scappoose and Tillamook – closed out the dual meet season by squaring off with one another on Feb. 1. The Cheesemakers won the meet on their own mat, 34-20. Scappoose coach Jim Jones called it an “exciting dual between two quality teams.” Taylor Walden earned the

first win of the night for the Indians. He led from start-tofinish for a 5-2 victory over Tillamook’s Hector Rojo in the 126-pound match. Hunter Hoyt added an 115 win for the Tribe in the 145pound match. A win from Isaiah Goodrich at 170 pounds kept the Indians within striking distance for the team score. Goodrich’s 6-2 win cut Scappoose’s deficit to 19-9.

By the time Branden Bailey won by fall at 285 pounds, the Tribe trailed 31-15. Braxton Sue kept the team’s hopes alive with a 19-4 technical fall in the 106-pound match. Then the Cheesemakers won the final two bouts of the evening. Scappoose heads back to Tillamook for the District Championship Tournament on Feb. 8. – Kyle Boggs

and finished second in another. Krahn was first in the 500-yard freestyle and second in the 50 free. Alvarez won the 200 free and finished second in the 100 butterfly. Throughout the rest of the meet, Scappoose had outstanding performances from the rest of the team. Fifty new personal record times were established by the Tribe. “It was a true team effort. Everyone really stepped up,” Richmond said. In addition to Krahn and Alvarez, Richmond said Jillian Werderber, Marie Hannah and Kiara Single all had standout performances. “You could say great things about just about every kid. They performed very well,” he said. Sam Herscovitz’s thirdplace finish in the backstroke paced the boys team. He also finished fourth in the 500 freestyle. Richmond said Kenny Klippel, Keegan Carey and Will Sprute all swam well too. Next up for Scappoose is



resh start,

With two victories last week, the Scappoose Indians (6-11, 4-2) have now won three Cowapa League contests in a row. Those three wins equal the cushion the Indians have given themselves over the fourth-place team in the league as well. Scappoose is one game behind No. 10 Seaside (16-4, 5-1) for second place. Last week the Indians beat the Astoria Fishermen (5-14, 1-5) 41-34 on Jan. 29. The Tribe followed that with a bizarre win over the Tillamook Cheesemakers (2-13, 1-5) on Feb. 1. Despite a stretch of about 10 minutes and 30 seconds without a point, the Indians beat the Cheesemakers 33-21. The all-around play of junior Abby Kessi led Scappoose against Tillamook. Kessi had four steals, four rebounds and two assists to go along with her game-high 15 points. Scoring was at a premium in the first half. The Indians led 11-4 after the first quarter even though they didn’t score over the final 2:45 of the period. Then Scappoose didn’t score in the second quarter, but carried a two-point lead into halftime. The Tribe continued its stingy defense in the third quarter. During the third, the Indians scored 13 points – the same number of points the Cheesemakers scored through the first three quarters combined. Kessi closed the third quarter with a buzzer-beating 3-

pointer with a defender right in her face. Kessi set the tone against Astoria as well, getting to the free-throw line early and often. She made four attempts in the opening quarter. Those were followed by a 3-pointer from junior Lacey Updike to put the Indians ahead 7-2, and the Tribe stayed in control the rest of the game. Kessi finished the game 6of-8 at the line with a teamhigh 14 points. Updike scored a dozen on six free throws and two 3-pointers. Free throws proved to be a big difference in the game. Scappoose made 18 of its 31 attempts; Astoria was 4-for-8.

Since Kessi has donned her new number, she – along with fellow junior Lacey Updike – has helped pick up Catlow’s slack on the court. Before she hurt her knee, Catlow was the team’s leading scorer. Since she’s been

injured, Kessi and Updike have both scored in double digits nearly every game. Kessi has done more than just score too. In last week’s game against Tillamook, she also led the team in steals, tied for the lead in assists and was the second-leading rebounder. Part of the boost in her on-court success, Kessi said, comes from having Catlow’s No. 12 on the floor. “We needed Brittany –

She’s still energizing her teammates, and still looking ahead to the future. “They’re already looking forward to playing summer ball and they can play together again,” said Will Kessi.
