County OK’s citizen oversight for jail BY SHARI PHIEL

In May, voters will head to the polls (or mail in their ballots) to vote on a measure that would provide three years of additional funding. The proposed levy would add just under 38 cents per $1,000 of assessed value to property tax bills each year for the next three years. For a home assessed at $150,000, the levy would add about $57 a year to that owner’s tax bill. For a $250,000 home, the levy would increase the annual tax bill by around $95. One idea that might make voters a little more confident about voting for the levy is the idea of a citizen oversight

committee. It’s an idea the county commissioners are ready to move forward with as Earl Fisher well. Although the county commissioners have yet to work out all of the details, their goal is to give county residents insight and a voice to how budget dollars for the jail are spent. “Generally what we’re looking at is having an oversight committee that will look at the sheriff’s budget for the jail and to review that

on a regular basis – whether that’s quarterly, every month or bi-monthly,” said County Commissioner Earl Fisher. “What we want is a committee that meets on a very, very regular basis, to review that budget and to let us know what they think needs to be done to help improve the jail operation.” Much like other committees, the commissioners would appoint a designated number of representatives to the oversight committee. The group would then report back to the commissioners regularly. “We want to arrange it so that the people sitting on the committee represent the entire community,” Fisher added. “We’re not sure how we’re going to set that up

yet.” One person who is in favor of the oversight committee is Sheriff Jeff Jeff Dickerson Dickerson. “I’m good with it. The more financial oversight by those outside of government the better in my estimation, as it will only serve to clarify in more minds the financial realty we face,” said Dickerson. In fact, Dickerson said he doesn’t see any downside to having the committee in place.

“More eyes on the problem will lead to more understanding in the community,” Dickerson added. “It’s a win-win situation.” Having an oversight committee in place could also give voters some confidence that the county will to keep its promise to continue providing the same level of financial support it has provided without the levy. “We’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if the levy passes we will not – as a board of commissioners – reduce our support for the jail,” said Fisher. Both the commissioners and the sheriff realize the creation of an oversight committee may not sway voters to pass the levy but both agree its still a good idea.

“I do not really know if it will have any kind of impact at all,” said Dickerson. “I don’t know how many will be convinced to change their vote on that basis. But it could help to solidify the reality of what we are facing if the commissioners are willing to yield this aspect of their responsibility to a third party review.” The commissioners are likely to discuss the oversight committee at its regular meeting for the next couple of weeks before any final decision is made. The county commissioners meet each Wednesday at 10 a.m. in room 308 at the county courthouse. For an agenda, go to and follow the link under General Links.

Albertsons parent company inks deal for Safeway


ST. HELENS — Safeway’s board of directors announced on March 7 that an agreement has been reached to sell the company to AB Acquisitions, a subsidiary of private equity giant Cerberus Capital Management.

SHARI PHIEL / The Chronicle Volunteers line up to get the last wall up and in place so roofing work can begin. Columbia County Habitat for Humanity volunteers and future homeowner Mike McDougle have been working steadily to get the project off the ground.

Habitat for Humanity back on track with new home projects BY SHARI PHIEL

ST. HELENS — It’s been a while since Columbia County Habitat for Humanity volunteers have been able to put their hammers to work building a home – nearly four years, actually. But there’s plenty of work to be done now. The Habitat group had a “wall-raising” event on Saturday, March 8 to get all four walls up and in place so roofing work can begin. The home, which will eventually go to St. Helens resident

Mike McDougle and his children, is being built under the guidance of Mike Stone of Stone Builders. However, the nonprofit group isn’t stopping with just the one home on Sykes Road, Organizers have an eye toward building two more homes on the same property in the not-too-distant future. Since building its last home, CCHFH has seen some changes internally. “We put the last one up in Rainer,” said Executive Director Bill Blank. “We had a fairly active board when we

built the last one, but then [some members] left… and it became a question of trying to recruit more board members to get the board back in place. It took a while.” Eventually, new members – like Boyd Ruby – joined the group and brought new energy and ideas to the mix. Soon that new energy translated to better or new relationships with donors, contractors, suppliers and the Habitat for Humanity organization itself. “Once we were able to get our group back up to capacity, we were better able

to take advantage of new opportunities,” Blank added. One of those opportunities was finding a home for the group’s ReStore shop at 164 Little St., in St. Helens (just behind The Bike Shop on Highway 30). ReStore has now been operating successfully since May 2013 and is a great source for donated used and new building materials, supplies, home and office furniture and more, all at discounted prices. Even better is that all proceeds go to building the homes Habitat for Humanity has become well known for. ­­­­

“Our funds were through St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union, and they brought us an opportunity to get the building because they knew we had discussed the idea of a ReStore but just hadn’t moved forward yet,” said Blank. “By faith, we just decided to lease the building and give it a shot.” It turned out to be the right idea. The ReStore shop has been highly successful, so much so that CCHFH was able to ultimately purchase the building this past JanuSee HABITAT, Page A3

ramps up veteran outreach BY SHARI PHIEL

Columbia County is home to some 5,500 veterans, but some of those veterans don’t have homes. Some live in their cars or trucks, others sleep in empty lots or under bridges. Others may end up at homeless shelters in Portland or Longview. For many of these homeless veterans, medical and/or mental health issues can present recurring problems, while others yet ­­­­ are dealing with substance abuse. But all can be helped.

Community Action Team’s Russ Clark, the agency’s veteran’s service officer, wants to see more veterans getting access to the benefits they are eligible for and he’s hoping a new grant will help him do just that. “The last legislative session allocated to the Department of Veterans Affairs about $800,000 to do extended outreach throughout the entire state. They set aside more than $600,000 for the counties, which was a competitive bid process. See TEAM, Page A3

Fire destroys Warren mobile home Police receive video flashlight WARREN — A fire in the very early hours of Thursday morning has left a doublewide mobile home with significant damage. Firefighters from Columbia River Fire & Rescue and Scappoose Fire District responded to a significant structure fire in the Mountain View Mobile Home Park at 34774 Millard Road just after 2:30 a.m. on March 6. According to CRF&R Chief Jay Tappan, crews arrived to find the mobile home with heavy flames showing through the windows and roof. Tappan said the two residents were able to escape with minor injuries, but lost all of their possessions in the devastating fire. Firefighting efforts, which were primarily concentrated on protecting the surrounding structures and vehicles, brought the fire under control after about 40 minutes. However, fire personnel remained on scene for another two hours to ensure all hot spots were extinguished. The trailer, owned by Loren and Donna Maier, was declared to be a total loss and the residents were provided with Red Cross assistance. Loren Maier said he became aware of the fire when he heard popping and crackling noises in the back

area of the home. He subsequently found the fire in the bathroom area and tried to fight it with an extinguisher, but the fire had grown too large so his wife called 9-1-1. CRF&R paramedics treated Loren Maier on scene for mild smoke inhalation symptoms and burns. Tappan said the cause of the fire was reported by the residents as most probably

a candle left burning in the bathroom, but it is unknown which materials were first ignited. Damage is estimated to be about $50,000 for the home and an unknown figure for the contents. A pet cat is thought to have perished in the home. CRF&R and Scappoose Fire responded with four fire engines, a medical unit, a water tender and several support

vehicles. A total of 25 fire personnel were on scene with no reported injuries. Tappan urges all residents to be very careful with any open flame during the winter season and to be sure to never leave candles unattended. Also, he cautions everyone to not place combustible items such as clothing, furniture, or paper items too close to any source of heat.

Columbia County, is getting the word out to veterans,” Clark said. “You be surprised how many veterans today still don’t realize they’re eligible for services.” Last year, Clark worked with around 180 new clients. His goal is to get that number to 350 this year. Out of the more than 6,700 veterans and survivors in the county, Clark is currently working with around 1,200. That leaves plenty of room for more. Community Action Team is a locally controlled, private, not-for-profit corporation, serving Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook Counties. Community Action Team’s main focus is to mobilize resources and address the needs of the economically disadvantaged. C.A.T. currently serves over 16,000 persons annually. The goal of Community Action Team is to reduce the extent and negative effects of poverty by increasing family self-reliance. Clark and Elliot also want to get the word out about services available for surviving family members of veterans. Community Action Team provides housing assistance to veterans that are already homeless and those at risk of losing

We had to submit our plan and they had a committee review our proposals,” said Clark. In the end, the state awarded CAT with $41,700. The money is primarily intended to be used for advertising. “The goal of it is for veterans who are in danger of being homeless or those who are actually homeless, to see if we can’t put them into some type of home and provide them assistance,” said Clark. The problem has been getting the word out to the veterans and the surviving families of veterans. Clark and Pam Elliot, who heads the supportive services for veterans’ families program, will use the new grant to put advertising in local newspapers and on Columbia County Rider buses each and every week for the next year. “I think of it as a mobile banner,” he added. “If nothing else, maybe they will be curious and call.” Clark hopes the frequent and repeated placement of the ads will get more people to pay attention and reach out for assistance. “The biggest problem we have across the state, and in

Captive husbandry, or captive breeding is The Sloth Center’s primary goal. The center fields between three to five phone calls per day about sloths. “Most of the calls are from people who want to know how they can get a sloth for a pet,” Caron said. “I tell them they [the animals] will die within three months.” The center also receives calls from other countries requesting evacuation for some of their sloth population due to deforestation or other environmental factors. “Sometimes we get a call saying, ‘we’re taking it [forestland] down,’” Royale explained. “They say, ‘Get here within 72 hours.’ We hop on a plane and go.” Sloths are hard to keep alive in captivity. They have delicate digestive systems and are susceptible to stress which often leads to illness. Veterinary care is hard to come by. What makes The Sloth Center so successful?

Unemployment numbers show slow but steady decline BY SHARI PHIEL

Oregon’s January unemployment numbers show a continuing slow but steady decline. The seasonally adjusted rate of 7.0 percent for January was a bit lower than the 7.1 percent rate for December 2013. January’s numbers continue the trend of steady decline seen over the past 12 months. In January 2013, the seasonally adjusted unemploy-

ment rate for the state was 8.3 percent. However, Oregon continues to have higher unemployment rates than the national average. The seasonally adjusted rate for January 2014 for the U.S. was 6.6 percent. This marks a significant improvement over 2013 as well. The national rate started out at 7.9 percent a year ago and has generally continued to decline each month. The exception for 2013 for both Oregon and the U.S. came in December, which

had unemployment rates of 7.1 and 6.7 percent, respectively. In Columbia County, January 2014’s seasonally adjusted rate of 7.4 represented a notable decline over both the prior month and the prior year. The December 2013 rate for Columbia County was 8.2 percent and the January 2013 rate was 9.2 percent. Neighboring counties like Clatsop, Tillamook and Multnomah continued to have lower unemployment figures. The Clatsop County seasonally adjusted rate for January 2014 was 5.9 percent; Tillamook’s rate was 6.2 percent and Multnomah County came in at 6.3 percent. Nonfarm employment Total nonfarm employment in Columbia County in January 2014 was down slightly from the prior month but rose over the same period last year. Nonfarm employment for January 2014 was 9,720, that’s down 230 jobs compared to December’s employment total of 9,950. However, January

2014 was up by 170 jobs compared to January 2013. The biggest declines from December 2013 to January 2014 came from private sector jobs which saw loses in construction (-40); manufacturing (-30); trade, transportation and utilities (-50); financial activities (-10); professional services (-20); education (-40) and leisure and hospitality (-30). By comparison, government jobs saw very little decline over the prior month. Federal jobs were unchanged; state government jobs were up slightly (+10) and local government were down (-20). When comparing January 2014 to the same period the year prior, the biggest changes were in mining and logging (+10); manufacturing (+70); trade transportation and utilities (+80); and leisure and hospitality (+70). Industries losing jobs over the year included construction (-40); information (-10); professional services (-60) and paper manufacturing (-30)

Letters Dead heads vs. deadheads I apologize to the Columbia County and Port of St. Helens commissioners. On March 5, The Chronicle published an opinion piece I submitted. Somewhere after the article left my hard drive in a torrent of bytes, and was reconstituted in the physical world of ink and paper, two words in the title were inadvertently combined into one. These things happen sometimes in our digital world. I submitted the article with the title, “Oil Trains, Salmon, and Dead Heads: Management without Stewardship.” The words “dead” and “heads” were printed as the single word, “deadheads.” I care about this because that seemingly innocuous change could result in a misinterpretation of my intent. I meant the two words to refer to the remains of the unfortunate, recently departed bovines. Unfortunately, one dictionary definition for deadhead is a “stupid or dull person,” and the title could be misinterpreted as me hurling that insult at the commissioners. Nothing could be further from my intent. We the people of Columbia County hire our commissioners through our majority votes. They have a right to be treated with respect in our communications, just as we the people have the right for that respect to be reciprocated. This is especially true in the exchange of passionate opinions and sharp criticisms. As the founder of Envision Columbia County I, and other members, are working to reclaim our constitutional community rights to local governance and active, meaningful stewardship of our entire community. We will continue to do so with a passionate yet respectful tone, without resorting to angry, accusatory outbursts or derogatory name-calling. Danner Christensen Founder, Envision Columbia County (From the editor: I can’t let Mr. Christensen take the blame for this one. When I got his letter, we were headed to press and very short on time. Our word document program flagged the word, so I headed to the Oxford English Dictionary to check it out. Among other definitions is this: “a train, railroad car, airplane, truck, or other commercial vehicle while operating empty.” Given the title of the letter, and the fact that we have lots of deadhead train cars coming through the county, I incorrectly thought this is what he was referring to. We work hard to keep the tone and intent of letters submitted to us intact. I truly regret the error and apologize for any issues this may have caused.)


Careful stewardship I took great interest in reading the Viewpoint section about “Oil Trains, Salmon and Deadheads: management without stewardship.” I felt that the article was written with an implied assumption that industry, business and entrepreneurship is our enemy. Businesses and entrepreneurs are often cast as greedy and exploitative villains. The parable about the salmon, was used as an example to illustrate the lack of stewardship. I believe that the managers of our fisheries were trying to be good stewards. In 1930, the Pacific Northwest needed Flood Control and Power to provide food for our bellies and schools for our children. Well-intended and educated people made decision’s that “seemed” appropriate at the time. The parable properly makes note of the mistakes. It doesn’t really talk about the public benefit. I see the story as an argument to plan and find ways to make opportunities work in our complex community. The article mentions concerns about schools and neighborhoods being located close to the railroad. The truth is, that trains are safer, less expensive and more environmentally friendly to transport hazardous materials than trucks. Railroads have owned these easements long before the edifices were built. I agree with the thought that our elected officials sometimes have an aloofness and even an arrogance to the public. I think many people sometimes get this way, when they finally get tired of explaining and defending their view over and over and over. The flippant answer of “just move” certainly was rude. The sad irony is that we did move. Not away from, but closer to the tracks. And now years later we are complaining about the hazards. Was the building of neighborhoods close to the railroad good stewardship or bad management? Did the good outweigh the bad? I do have concerns about railroad safety and issues related to the transportation of coal and hazardous material. I see irony in the argument of shipping hazardous material, since we live down wind from a plant that stores a large amount of chlorine (how does the chlorine get there?). Has anyone in our county gone to Canada and investigated what environmental damage has occurred, and what steps should be done to mitigate the issue? Was the damage permanent or are we just afraid that it “might happen.” Might happen is a straw man argument to not do anything. This argument should be a challenge to plan for the contingency. The county needs jobs

that provide good wages and decent benefits. Worried about train traffic? Let’s install overpasses to improve traffic flow. Afraid of tanker cars exploding? Lets find out what type of modifications are needed to safely transport the Bakken oil and require those standards. Worried about schools that we sited in the wrong location? Create blast walls and escape plans to mitigate the risk. Create End of Life plans for the buildings and build new ones somewhere else when they become obsolete. Setting public policy is strategic and broad. Implementing public policy is tactical and narrow. Getting things done requires focus and determination. Let all of us step out of the shadows and create real jobs and real business opportunities. Stewardship is saying, “why not?” Let’s mitigate the bad! Good management should say, “How can we make this work?” Stewardship means the management or care of something, particularly the kind that works. If your company is making money, there’s probably been careful stewardship — or, a lot of luck. Rory Hammond, Deer Island It takes a team Thank you to all who came to celebrate this pivotal stage of the construction of the first of three Habitat homes, located at Sykes Road on Saturday, March 8. Thank you is extended to all of you that helped make this possible by your support as ReStore customers, donors, and volunteers. The event was truly enjoyable, even if a little damp. A big thanks goes to Sen. Betsy Johnson for her continuing support of Habitat for Humanity and presence, City Councilor Susan Conn for representing the City of St. Helens, Michael Wagy of CalPortland for taking the time to join us to celebrate this special event (knowing that he had very busy schedule), Steve Jensen of St. Helens Community Federal Credit Union, a Habitat supporter right from the beginning, and other officials who attended, our partner, Thrivent Financial, and their excellent support team of Eric McClung and Jason Susee. Any acknowledgment could not go without a big shout out to Columbia River Fire & Rescue Chief Jay Tappen, and the team of firefighters who helped raised the last two walls to complete the event, and kick off our celebration. Columbia County Habitat for Humanity Board President Boyd Ruby and our supportive board of directors also deserves recognition. It goes without saying it takes special construction project overseer to make the building of a home come together.

In our case, Mike Stone of Stone Builders, is that person. We would also like to thank Hardcore Construction, Oregon Association of Realtors, CANDO Electric, Lower Columbia Engineering, TFT Construction, NW Plumbing, the Columbia River PUD, KOHI Radio, The Chronicle and South County Spotlight, all of our great volunteers, and a special thanks to volunteers Bob Bay, Bill Jauron, Don and Debbie Ritthaler for their dedicated volunteer hours beyond any expectations. Forgive me if I have overlooked anyone. Contact me and I will rectify the oversight. While this build is far from complete, and continued fundraising will be needed, the excitement generated by our supporters at this event will be even more evident at the next big celebration – handing the keys of the new home to our next Habitat homeowner, Mike McDougle, and his kids.

County criminals only. Also we need assurances that the local prisoners and state and federal prisoners are housed separately. I spent 15-plus years with the Columbia County Sheriff’s office and jail. The first two years as a volunteer deputy, then as a full-time corrections deputy before retiring in August 2009 with an advanced certification in corrections from the Oregon Department of Public Safety. One of the things I observed while watching the mixed population of local and federal prisoners was that federal prisoners were making new recruits locally for expanding their business of drug trafficking and other related crimes, thus making Columbia County a new outlet for gang crime with local operators. In the past there was always a rather constant population of about 70 to 80 local prisoners. First we need to reserve at least that number of beds for local prisoners. If it means sending U.S. Marshall or immigration prisoners back to other jails so be it. This needs to be evaluated (counted) on a daily basis. Local inmates come first, last and always as to be housed in Columbia County Jail. On to the issue of where

inmates are housed. When the jail opened it was set up with ten housing units. Two for female inmates. Eight for male inmates. One of those pods for maximum security male inmates and one other pod that could house maximum security male inmates if needed. The other six pods for general male population. The problem comes with the fact many federal inmates come with a much higher level of crime involvement than their criminal history shows. This is due to the fact they have yet to be charged with, or convicted of these crimes, or their crimes took place in a foreign country. Often these people are the recruiters who in or out of jail are expanding the field of operation in crime for their gang, often this involves violent crime – bringing more drugs and violent crime to Columbia County. Any levy we are to vote on must have the wording that those funds would be directed to house persons who are charged for criminal acts in Columbia County, and will keep local inmates separated from federal inmates. We do not need the jail to be a training center for new crime in our neighborhoods. Dan Koch, St. Helens

Military News

Scappoose Marine corporal completes navigation course Calif. Each Marine was issued a compass, protractor and map. To complete the course, they had to locate six points in six hours within an area covering more than two miles of arduous landscape. Land navigation is an invaluable skill set and forms one of the core competencies of a leader. The purpose of the course is to

establish individual confidence and proficiency in tasks associated with land navigation. “Being able to terrain associate and being comfortable with a map are basic skills that can directly affect mission accomplishment,” said Raethke. “You always want to know where you are going when you are on a patrol. Nobody likes being lost.”

The Marines were split into pairs for the course and each pair had different points to locate in the training area so knowing how to avoid getting lost was crucial. “At first we had a little trouble,” said Raethke. “We couldn’t find our points, and when we were looking at the map, we chose bad routes sometimes. We eventually started from scratch, plotted our points again, and instead of trying to navigate the hills and draws, we stuck to the roads, which ended up being significantly easier and faster. The rain really made a lot of the hills too slippery.” All agreed that during a rescue operation to find or evacuate a Marine, not knowing basic land navigation skills could cost that soldier his or her life.

“Truly I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”


e saved others; let Him save Himself, if He is the Christ of God, His chosen One.”   Not only did our blessed Savior endure the torture of the trial and the suffering associated with one who was condemned to death by the cruel instrument of the cross, but for His atoning work on the cross, Jesus was mocked.     At first, that mockery came from the mouths of both thieves hanging next to Christ.   But here is the irony: Of all those in Israel that day, a thief is the first one to be converted by Jesus’ absolution on the cross; the announcement that sin is forgiven because of the cross.   His confession of sin is summarized in Luke 23: 40-41: “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?  And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.”      With this confession, the thief glorifies God and recognizes His righteousness.   But the thief now voices an even stronger confession, “Jesus, remember me when you come into Your kingdom.”   These are the words of faith.


y their mockery, the people around the cross took the Name of God in vain.   Instead of calling upon the Name of the LORD in prayer, in praise and in thanksgiving, they drag the precious Name of the LORD through the gauntlet of reviling, insult, and abuse.   But are we really so different?  Once again as we journey through the Lenten season, ask yourself these questions: • Have you used the name of God to swear or curse others? • Have you been involved in Satanic arts or activities? • Have you failed to pray regularly? • Have you failed to thank and bless God, in good times and in bad? • Have you brought dishonor to the Name into which

you were baptized?


he last question should be of a particular challenge to us.   We took a vow to honor the name of our LORD as His baptized children.   Yet, how often have we brought dishonor, indeed mocked Christ in thought, word and action?   Is it not we also who need to repent like the thief on the cross, “And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds?”   An acknowledgement of sin also is an acknowledgement that we truly have merited and earned the fire and punishment of hell.


lmost unbelievably, the request of the thief on the cross is met, not with distain, not with threats of revenge, not with words of condemnation, but with words of eternal life: “Truly I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”   This is Jesus’ second word from the cross in Luke, and it continues the theme of Christ’s first word: “Father forgive them for they (the thief as well) know not what they do.”   Here is our comfort: Jesus, crucified, is the source of forgiveness for all---even the worst, the least, and the last.     With these words, Jesus invites the thief to participate in this forgiveness forever.   But with these words, Jesus reaches down to the very depth of your sin, pulls you out, washes you clean in Holy Baptism from all your sin and sets you on the same course to Paradise now and forever. --- Pastor Joseph Burkhardt

She serves on the board of Friends of William Stafford, organizing the January Stafford Birthday Events. Petersen was appointed as Oregon’s Poet Laureate in 2010 by Governor Kulongoski and was re-appointed in 2012 by Governor Kitzhaber. “Paulann Petersen is the perfect choice to serve as Oregon’s poet laureate,” said Governor Kulongoski. “Her wonder-

ful poetry and her commitment to sharing her craft with the people of Oregon through her teaching and service exemplify the kind of person that is

ideal to serve in this position.” Petersen was born and raised in Oregon and spent half of her adult life in Klamath Falls. The poet laureate position is a collaborative project of the state’s five statewide cultural partners, Oregon Arts Commission, Oregon Heritage Commission, Oregon Historical Society, Oregon Humanities, and State Historic Preservation Office.

Scappoose is headed to state yet again

kyle boggs / The Chronicle

Longtime Scappoose High School scorekeeper Jim Davison also volunteers to help the OSAA each year at the 4A State Basketball Tournament at Gill Coliseum. by kyle boggs


or the 15th time in the last 16 seasons, Scappoose is headed to Gill Coliseum in Corvallis for the OSAA 4A Basketball State Championships. Even though both the boys and girls teams finished their seasons already, the Indians will send representatives to both the boys and girls tournaments. Jim Davison and Don Hill have volunteered at the tournament since it moved to Gill Coliseum on the Oregon State University campus in 1999. Prior to that, they were helping out at the Chiles Center at the University of Portland as well For Davison, volunteering his time is nothing new. While he prefers his contributions go unnoticed, that’s hardly possible. Davison has kept the scorebook for both the boys and girls basketball teams at

SHS for the last decade. Before he added the girls’ games to the mix, Davison was the scorekeeper for just the boys games for a number of years, getting his start at a Christmas tournament in Scappoose. While it’s been a few decades, Davison still remembers his first game. La Salle Prep was playing Naselle of Washington at the tournament. Both teams scored around 100 points, meaning the new blood at the scorer’s table stayed plenty busy. Even though Davison claims his memory is fading as he approaches his 80th birthday this summer, he still quickly recalls who was officiating that first game. “Dale Schlueter, a great big guy, about 6-10. He used to play for the Blazers. He was the referee and I told him it was my first game,” Davison recalls. Since that day, Davison has been a fixture not just on the Scappoose sidelines, but also at the state

tournaments. While he doesn’t run the scorebook at the state tournaments – unless Scappoose is playing – Davison said he and Hill find other ways to keep busy. They arrive at the arena by 9 a.m. for the tournament’s morning games and are there until midnight. They do everything from bring out racks of basketballs to make sure the water is put away after the championship rounds are over so the students rushing the court don’t make too big of a mess. Davison has missed the tournament at Gill just once since ’99, and that was because he was battling a bout of laryngitis. Going back even further, he hasn’t missed a game at Scappoose. While he finally gave up his duties along the chain gang at football games last season, he was at every home game this year rooting on the Indians. And there he is at center court for every home basketball game. He’s not doing it for his kids

any more – his youngest daughter graduated in 1990. But they helped get him involved in the beginning, and he said he just enjoys being around the students. “If you didn’t enjoy it, you couldn’t do it,” he said. While a local sportswriter dubbed Davison “Mr. T” for his habit of yelling while his girls were in school, he’s lowered the volume lately. In any given game, if you see Davison talking at all, as a matter of fact, the words usually come from a smiling face. Davison keeps a positive outlook and seems to thoroughly appreciate the opportunity to be around high school athletics as much as he is. “I have never met a bad kid, never had a problem with a parent,” he said. When he says that, he’s not talking only about folks from Scappoose. Even though on the court they might be the Indians’ enemies, Davison doesn’t see it that way.

“How can you root against them? Who are you gonna root against? St. Helens? After the game they’re gonna grow up together and be friends,” he said. Not only has he had a chance to meet quality people, he’s seen some very high quality talent on the fields and courts. He was around for Derek Anderson and Scappoose’s 40-game winning streak, he saw Burns High School alum and current NFL quarterback Kellen Clemens return to Corvallis to root on his sisters while Clemens was quarterbacking the Oregon Ducks, and he’s watched former NBA player Luke Jackson lead his Creswell Bulldogs to a state title. “Luke Jackson is probably the best I’ve seen in our classification. He just had remarkable vision,” Davison said. Then, of course, there are the local folks that he reflects fondly on. See davison, Page A12


Scappoose’s Loss is picked to Shrine Game Scappoose High School senior Taylor Loss has been selected to play quarterback in the 2014 East-West Shrine Football Game. Loss could be joined in Baker for the annual AllStar game by his teammate, fellow senior Kenny Klippel. Klippel was picked as an alternate. Klippel plays offensive and defensive line. During his senior campaign, Loss completed 162 of his 250 pass attempts (65 percent) for 2,306 yards and 21 touchdowns with eight interceptions. The QB was a capable runner as well, carrying the ball 40 times for 138 yards (3.45 yards per carry) and seven touchdowns. Loss was a two-year starter for the Indians, finishing his career with 4,828 passing yards and 58 TD passes with 19 interceptions. He averaged 241.4 passing yards per game. Loss and Klippel both represent the West Team. Rainier linebacker Jason Larson is also on the team.

Middle school wrestlers from St. Helens display their hardware following a tournament at Parkrose High School recently.

ST. HELENS — Four St. Helens High School studentathletes were presented plaques and $100 checks at the school’s winter sports banquet last week. Senior basketball player Gage Bumgardner, senior swimmer Lauren Chambers, sophomore swimmer Kevin Christenson and junior wrestler Mario Olmedo all earned the Best Teammate Award from the St. Helens Sports Boosters Club. The award was created

this year to recognize up to five student-athletes each season. The criteria for the award are character, leadership, scholastics and community service. Winners of the award are each presented a certificate and $100. Student-athletes are nominated by their coaches. Those nominations are then submitted to the Booster Club’s executive board, which votes to determine the winners. Other awards presented

at the banquet included the Bi-Mart Spirit of a Champion Award. Winners of this were sophomore three-sport athlete Hannah Spears and senior three-sport athlete Tanner Long. Spears plays volleyball, swims and plays tennis. Long plays football, basketball and runs track. The Spirit of a Champion Award recognizes studentathletes who exmplify qualities of sportsmanship and character. – By Kyle Boggs

for a final tour – it will move to Hillsboro in the 2014-15 season – Davison and Hill will return yet again. They’ll be behind the scorer’s table in their chairs labeled “Scappoose evaluators.” They’ll do whatever it is they can to help make the tournament run as smoothly as possible. And all the while, they’ll try staying out of the spotlight so that the kids can enjoy their time in it.

Where the wild things aren’t: Killing English ivy English ivy is on a trajectory to become the dominant plant in our forest understory over the next 50 years. It spreads easily by birds that eat the berries and deposit the seeds. It is quite tolerant of low light conditions and is able to outcompete anything native in our forest floors.

once it is planted. Third, consider dusting the seed pieces with sulfur at planting to further reduce disease concerns and to help protect the plant from potato scab.

garden plots Cutting “seed” potatoes As all gardeners know, potatoes are clones, planted from tubers or pieces of tubers grown and stored from the year before. “Seed” potatoes that are larger than eggs are generally cut into egg-sized pieces before planting. This saves on the seed needed since one large potato could easily provide four seed pieces. The process of cutting and curing the cut seed is important. First, never use a potato with any signs of disease, either cut or uncut. Second, after cutting, let the potatoes cure in a paper bag at 50-65 degrees for 4-6 days (gently shake the potatoes at day two) to develop the “corky” texture over the cut surface that will help protect the seed from disease

Nothing really eats it (more on that in a minute) and it seems perfectly adapted to our climate. It is unclear why the pace of invasion is picking up but it is probably due to a combination of the standard geometric increase process common to all seriously invasive species and perhaps climate change. So what are our options? If the plants are small and few in number, hand removal is an option. Just remember that any portion of this wicked plant that was left can regenerate roots and resume growth without much apparent effort. Hand removal on a large scale is challenging and can require a huge number of volunteer hours (volunteers because you couldn’t afford to pay for this effort) over a number of years. Deer (allegedly), cattle, sheep, and goats can all consume ivy but it is not a preferred food and it is unclear whether there might be health or nutritional consequences from targeted grazing an ivy stand over long periods of time. The problem with grazing is that it relies on carbohydrate starvation of the roots and crown by the continuous removal of the ivy leaves. The animals would have to be returned to the stand


fairly quickly and on multiple cycles to get any impact. It is unclear if a stand grazed hard and then left alone for six months would be any worse for the grazing. I would bet on the ivy in that circumstance. This gets us to chemical control. Again, ivy seems to hold all the cards. Between the elaborate root systems, the dense multi-storied foliage, and the waxy leaves, chemical control has been quite iffy. The Nature Conservancy did quite a bit of English ivy herbicide work about ten years ago and felt they got fair to good results by spraying glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup™ and other products) between October and March. A recent thread from a group of very smart weed “warriors” in Northwest Oregon tried to consolidate what they had learned. Most had been using a mix of triclopyr (some home “brush killer” products) with glyphosate in July-September and January-February windows with a suitable surfactant at one percent. On colder days, they upped the surfactant concentration to two percent to improve leaf penetration. Some reported a significant drop in efficacy of the winter applications with July perhaps being the best month.

Sturgeon Lower Columbia River: No report, catch and release only. Bonneville Pool: Weekly checking showed one legal and 13 sublegal sturgeon released for 25 bank anglers, and three sturgeon kept, plus one legal, one oversize and 192 sublegal sturgeon released for 15 boats (35 anglers).

If these herbicides are being used in forests, make sure the herbicides you buy are labeled for that use. Always read and follow all label instructions. Most heavy stands of ivy sup-press all other understory growth. Thus there would be little non-target injury in either time frame. If there are spring ephemerals or other herbaceous perennial plants you want to protect, look to the winter timing when they are dormant. Neither product is residual. It was also clear from their comments that results on ivy are still somewhat unpredictable and more information is needed. Ultimately, we as a society will need to urge our legislators to invest in biocontrol options to reduce the vigor and spread of this most pernicious weed. Oregon Department of Agriculture has one of the best bio-control capacities in the country and teamed with OSU for the research, together could be a powerful force in the effort to recover our native landscapes. Take extra produce you might have to the food bank, senior centers or community meals programs. Cash donations to buy food are also appreciated.

100 Days of kindergarten, 100 days smarter Kindergarten teachers are fortunate to work with some of the district’s youngest and most curious learners. Besides the ever-changing standards and benchmarks we must implement into our daily lessons, we make it our responsibility to guide our students to become life-long learners.

letters and sounds to then actually learning to read! Each of our students has individual academic and social goals and needs. We address these needs, each day, in multiple ways. Kindergarten teachers are masters of multi-tasking; tying shoes, helping students learn to problem solve, redirecting behaviors, all while introducing new concepts and using cooperative learning methods.

Although it requires an exorbitant amount of thoughts about lesson planning, patience, time, effort, it is by no means a thankless job. We are reminded daily, why we chose to be kindergarten teachers through the student’s hugs, lovingly drawn pictures, and the joy that erupts when we see a student overcome a personal or academic challenge. With the 100th day of kindergarten approaching we realize

that besides being a 100 days smarter, we reflect on our year so far and can’t help but recall how small and timid our students seemed in September and how much they’ve grown in confidence, ability, and independence. Our most important job is to ignite and fan the flames of discovery and learning in each of our students and help them love school and learning as much as we love teaching.
