Scappoose UGB takes a step forward Land cmmission agrees with director’s ruling; opponents’ objections are once again denied BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Shari Phiel / The Chronicle

Officials from the Port of St. Helens and the City of Scappoose have said additional land is needed near the Scappoose Air Park to provide development opportunities for new businesses like Oregon Aero, which is well into construction of a third hangar at the air park.

The proposed Scappoose Urban Growth Boundary expansion has cleared another hurdle. The state’s Land Conservation and Development Commission recently issued a 24-page report in support of the department director’s approval on June 14, 2012. Scappoose has proposed to add 378 acres to the existing urban growth boundary to accommodate industrial and commercial growth over the next 20 years. But the proposal hasn’t been without its detractors. Scappoose residents Mike Sheehan and Pat Zimmer-

man have been at the forefront of a grassroots campaign to stop the expansion and have submitted several appeals along the way. The review process According to its report, the LCDC reviewed a number of items after an appeal to the director’s decision was filed. This included review of the proposed expansion to determine if: there is substantial evidence to support the local government’s decision; the local government failed to follow the applicable procedures; to ensure the local government’s decision complies with applicable statutes, See GROWTH, Page A4

Accused killer found incompetent, won’t stand trial BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — Accused killer Daniel Butts won’t be going to trial, at least not anytime soon, in the death of Rainier Police Chief Ralph Painter. Following three days of testimony with conflicting evidence coming from the prosecution and the defense, Columbia County Circuit Court Judge Ted Grove ruled on Feb. 27 that Butts was not mentally competent and could not aid and assist in his own defense. “Given the unabated irrational behavior of the defendant, coupled with complete lack of cooperation with counsel or the assistance in his defense the court sees no option but to order that the defence is currently unable to assist in his defense.” said Grove. The judge went on to add

that Butts’ inability to cooperate was a direct result of his current mental difficulties, which is possibly schizophrenia. Despite Grove’s previous ruling in February of 2012 that Butts was able to stand trial, Columbia County District Attorney Steve Atchison may have been disappointed in the ruling but he wasn’t necessarily surprised by the

“You’re never surprised ... It’s always a possibility,” Steve Atchison Columbia County DA outcome. “You’re never surprised by that, it’s always a possi-

bility,” said Atchison. Grove’s ruling cited specific behaviors seen during the two years Butts has been in custody at the Columbia County Jail and at Oregon State Hospital. “There’s no dispute that [the] defendant has engaged in little verbal communication for the bulk of his confinement. He employs single words or gestures to communicate, resorting to full sentences irregularly,” said Grove. “The bulk of his communication is directed toward obtaining his basic needs or desire for music, recreation or fast food.” The judge added that Butts’ singular focus on more “trivial” issues, especially when Butts is facing rather serious criminal charges, to be of particular concern. Psychiatrists testifying for the defense said See TRIAL, Page A4

Arrest in St. Helens for 1982 Aloha murder BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Washington County Sheriff’s Detectives have arrested a St. Helens man in connection with the murder of a 17year-old Aloha girl more than 30 years ago. Kenneth Lee Hicks, 49, was arrested on Feb. 27 and charged with the 1982 homicide of Lori Billingsley. Billingsley’s body was discovered in a drainage ditch on SW Miller Hill Road south of SW Farmington Road in Aloha on Oct. 10, 1982. Authorities were able to determine that Billingsley had been sexually assaulted and then murdered. Washington County detectives worked the case for more than a year until all leads were exhausted. Hicks, who was 19 at the time, was identified as a potential suspect but officials said there was not enough evidence to charge him with the murder. Sheriff’s Detective Jim Welch was the lead investigator assigned to the case in 1982. Investigators said Welch (now deceased) com– See MURDER, Page A4

An ‘Icon’ in the making ‘Iconic’ young entrepreneur hits it big with homegrown clothing line BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Walking through the hallways at Scappoose High School these days, it’s hard for Ryan Henness not to smile. The creative high school senior is a walking testament to the power of imagination, dedication and social media. About a month ago, Henness launched a Facebook page showing some conceptual designs for T-shirts and sweatshirts. He labeled his page Iconic Source and has created three logos thus far for his Iconic brand. Since launching his page, Henness has distributed more than a shirt a day to folks in Scappoose, Banks, Washington and Colorado. And the popularity only continues to grow. “I’ll be walking down the hall and see three kids talking, and they’re all wearing them,” Henness said. His mother has been

asked about her son’s burgeoning industry while popping into a local salon. And he’s spotted them about town simply looking for a sandwich. “In Subway, a kid working there had one on. I walked in, the other lady working said ‘Look, he has the same sweatshirt as you,’” Henness said. Little did she know, that sweatshirt was printed in Henness’s kitchen. Because he has a busy schedule with school, homework and basketball, Henness does most of his Iconic Source work on the weekends. He says that with the help of a couple of others – either friends or family members – they can have 50 sweatshirts printed and dried in three or four hours. The process starts on the computer. That’s where Henness creates his designs using Adobe Illustrater and Photoshop. He then prints See ICON, Page A4

Columbia River Fire & Rescue

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed navigation locks at dams on the Columbia and Snake rivers in March to conduct annual inspections, repairs and maintenance. Portland District’s Bonneville, The Dalles and John Day navigation locks at Columbia River miles 145, 191 and 216, respectively, will close at 6 a.m. on March 6 and will reopen at 11:59 on March 20. The closures will allow employees to perform preventative maintenance and minor repairs to major lock systems like gates, valves, pumps and electrical gear. The Corps coordinates these annual closures with inland shippers and cruise lines to achieve minimal impact to the various industries that use the locks. The Corps’ Portland and Walla Walla districts maintain the commercial navigation route from the Pacific Ocean inland 465 miles to Lewiston, Idaho. The Columbia-Snake navigation system is vital to the economic health of the Pacific Northwest. Other navigation lock information is available on the Walla Walla District Web site at, and on Portland District’s Web site at

Our Community Reads program shines a light on the Holocaust through county libraries Libraries throughout the county have once again joined forces to host the second annual Our Community Reads program. During the months of March and April, Columbia County libraries will host a variety of events related to this year’s theme: “The Holocaust.” Libraries in St. Helens, Clatskanie, Columbia City, Rainier, Scappoose and Vernonia are participating in the program and will host events open to the public. Two books have been chosen to guide the overall focus and discussion of the program. The adult selection is “Night” by Elie Wiesel, and the children’s selection is “The Devil’s Arithmetic” by Jane Yolen. Copies of the chosen books are available for checkout at all participating libraries. In addition – and the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center – community members will have three opportunities to listen to guest

speakers share their Holocaust experiences. Evelyn Banko will speak at Vernonia Public Library on March 9 at 4 p.m. Banko was born in Austria and fled to America with her family after surviving the Nazi persecution of the Jews in Austria and then the Russian invasion of Latvia. The St. Helens Public Library will host Jeannie Smith on March 21 at 7 p.m. Smith will share the story of her mother, Irene Gut Opdyke. Opdyke was a Polish Catholic who, over a twoyear period, risked her life to protect the lives of 12 Jewish refugees she secretly cared for. Opdyke wrote a book about her Holocaust experience, titled “In My Hands,” which is also available to check out through St. Helens Public Library. Rainier City Library will host guest speaker Anneke Bloomfield on April 11 at 7 p.m. Bloomfield was born in the Netherlands in 1935. She

spent most of World War II in hiding in the north part of the country, separated from her family. A special art exhibit by Columbia County artist Dave Anderson will be displayed at Vernonia Public Library March 9-11 and at the St. Helens Public Library March 13-15. Anderson, whose work is part of Pacific University’s permanent collection in Forest Grove, was inspired by the children of the Terezin (Theresienstadt) Concentration Camp. From 1942-1944, approximately 15,000 children were imprisoned at Terezin, Czechoslovakia. Fewer than 100 survived. Many were deported to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. While at Terezin, imprisoned teachers defied the Nazis by helping the Terezin children create artwork and poems as a form of art therapy to deal with their horrific circumstances. This artwork

D.R. Garrison, CPA, PC 2114 COLUMBIA BLVD., ST. HELENS (503) 366-0994 WWW.DRGTAX.COM

was hidden in walls and cases so that it could later be found. As a tribute to the Terezin children, Anderson created artwork inspired by these surviving drawings and poems. Anderson will also speak about his art at St. Helens Public Library on March 14 at 7 p.m. Those interested in more information about the Terezin children’s story and artwork may wish to check out the book “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” (edited by Hana Volavková) at the St. Helens library. Finally, the St. Helens li-

brary will host a film screening of “Defiant Requiem” on April 4 at 7 p.m., which tells the story of Czech choral conductor Raphael Schachter, who brought hope to thousands of Jews imprisoned at Terezin by organizing and leading performances of Verdi’s “Requiem.” The story is told through a combination of orchestral performances, dramatic reenactments and interviews with Terezin camp survivors. Verdi’s “Requiem” was immensely symbolic to the prisoners. “Defiant Requiem” is a production of Oregon Public Broadcasting

in association with Brandenburg Productions, Inc. 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. For further information regarding the Our Community Reads books or events or the program, please contact your participating local library or Library Director Margaret Jeffries at 503-397-4544.

GROWTH: appeal deemed likely MURDER: new light on a cold case

statewide land use planning goals, administrative rules, comprehensive plan, regional framework plan, functional plan and land use regulations. Also, the commission reviewed the proposed UGB to determine if the city had met certain required goals, including the establishment of a land use planning process and establishment of requirements to amend the UGB. At the conclusion of its review, the LCDC said it found that the City of Scappoose had met all of the goal requirements and did not find in favor of the appeal. Commission findings One objection reviewed by the LCDC was the claim that the City of Scappoose did not use the most recently available employment data. “The commission finds that city is not required to restart analysis each time new information becomes available and is understandable that new data would emerge during three year span to put forth

UGB expansion,” states the report. As to the objection that the employment data used by Scappoose overstates likely future employment because it assumes high growth rates in short period of time, the commission said the economic analysis was not based solely on the historic period alleged and that “the city used the substantial evidence of employment growth from 2003-2007, combined with other evidence, to compile an adequate factual basis that underlies its subsequent UGB decision.” Another objection made in the appeal is that the Economic Opportunities Analysis compiled makes an unreasonable determination regarding amount of regional employment growth Scappoose will capture. However, the LCDC said it found substantial evidence to support the city’s claim such as locational advantage and that past growth rates exceeded the Portland metro area. As for the objections made by opponents that neither a runway expansion or hangar expansion is called for in the

Airpark Master Plan, the commission said the Airpark Master Plan predates the proposed UGB expansion and economic analysis and therefore could not take those expansions into consideration. The commission also found testimony from Port of St. Helens representatives supported the city’s claims. Only one objection, which was in reference to the land inventory completed, found some consideration. “The commission finds that the city’s employment land inventory correctly excluded all but one of the parcels that the objectors claim should have been added to the inventory,” said the report. However, the LCDC said the incorrect parcel was small enough to not have any real bearing on the proposed expansion. Opponents to the commission’s finding will now have 21 days to appeal its decision. According to Zimmerman, it’s likely the group will file that appeal. The full report is available online at

TRIAL: Butts to head back to hospital this type of behavior shows a childlike ability to appreciate the severity of circumstances and can be related to schizophrenia. Grove did recognize the conflicting testimony provided by three psychiatrists for the prosecution and two psychiatrists testifying for the defense. “My concern at this stage is more limited. It is whether due to a mental disease or defect the defendant is unable to understand the nature of the charges against him or is unable to aid and cooperate with counsel or to participate in his defense,” said Grove. Butts will now return to the Oregon State Hospital where he will continue to be observed and evaluated. “A few things can happen,”

said Atchison. “If they decide he’ll never be able to aid and assist then the judge has to decide what to do after that. If they say we have him ready to aid and assist then they can send him back.” One thing that could happen is that Butts may at long last receive the anti-psychotic medication prescribed to him by defense psychiatrists. Until now, Butts has refused medical treatment, including antipsychotic medications. However, in his ruling Grove ordered Butts’ medications be administered to him, involuntarily if needed. “That will have to be worked out. The state hospital has a lot to say about that,” said Atchison. “It’s fairly difficult from what I understand.”

Should Butts eventually be found competent and able to assist in his own defense, an outcome Atchison is hopeful will prove to be true, Grove’s prior rulings – both for and against the defense – won’t be allowed to be brought in to the trial. “Once he is able to aid and assist, that’s the end of it. Then he just goes to trial,” said Atchison. Of course, that doesn’t preclude them from filing a separate mental defense for the issue of the crime itself and I imagine they would do that.” Butts will continue be reevaluated every 60 to 90 days until a permanent decision or outcome is reached.

pleted a comprehensive investigation that would prove invaluable decades later. While there was evidence collected, DNA testing did not yet exist. It wasn’t until the early 1990s that DNA evidence was recognized as an investigative tool to aid in the identification and elimination of subjects connected with crimes. In 1991, detectives sent evidence, including DNA, collected from the crime scene to the Oregon State Police crime lab for analysis. Unfortunately, no profile was identified. Another 19 years would pass before technology became advanced enough to allow for the testing of small or degraded evidence samples that were previously unable to be tested. In 2010, detectives again submitted evidence from the Billingsley homicide to the

Lori Billingsley

OSP crime lab for DNA analysis. But investigators were again left frustrated when a DNA profile was identified, but did not match any of the individuals in the DNA database at that time. In December 2010, Detective O’Connell, who had retired from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office earlier that same year after 30 years of service, returned part time to the sheriff’s office dedicated to solving cold cases. O’Connell began working the Billingsley homicide, supported by the

WCSO violent crimes unit. O’Connell eventually served a search warrant to seize Kenneth Hicks’s DNA, which was then sent to the OSP crime lab and came back as a positive match to the DNA profile from the Billingsley murder. On Feb. 26, 2013, a Washington County grand jury indicted Hicks with two counts of aggravated murder. District Attorney Robert Hermann, who was assigned to the original case in 1982, is currently prosecuting the case on behalf of Washington County. Hicks was arrested the following day and charged with two counts of aggravated murder. He is being lodged in the Washington County Jail where he will be held without bail. Detectives are seeking the public’s help regarding this case. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2500.

ICON: Social media has been the key to clothing line’s early success, so far From PAGE A1 signs onto transparencies. The transparencies are placed on a silk screen that Henness obtained from SHS teacherAny Kane. Next the transparencies are painted over with the selected color – white, blue or black – and the image is pressed onto the shirt. Because Henness’s creations have images on both sides, the shirts must dry after one side is completed. While they’re drying, he cleans the screen, then prints the image on the back of the shirt. Once the second image is dry, the shirt is complete. His first batch completed was a dozen shirts that he handed out to his friends. Once they started rocking the Iconic gear around Scappoose, others began to notice.

“Word got out. People were tweeting about ‘What’s Iconic Source?’” Henness said. He picked the name because he wanted it to reflect something that’s popular or famous. Iconic Source’s popularity grew quickly. Soon after his trial run, he received about 50 messages on the Iconic Source Facebook page from people putting in their orders. Now, in addition to the crewneck sweatshirt and T-shirt, he’s offering a side-zip hoody, a longsleeved T-shirt with a different design and even yoga pants with Iconic printed upside down on the foldover band. “I was hanging out on the senior bench and a bunch of the girls said, ‘Ryan, you should do yoga pants.’I was already looking into it that day, so I decided to do it,” he said. He plans to continue expand-

ing, as he has several other designs waiting to be tried out. Once basketball season comes to an end, he anticipates having more time to work on his brand. When he first started, he said he didn’t expect such high demand. Now that the demand is there, he’s elected to make this a senior project. He’s unsure if fashion design will factor into his future plans, but he’s not ruling it out. “I’m planning to go to UP for computer science, but I think it’d be cool to open up a little shop,” Henness said.

LETTERS Take a look It is well demonstrated that criminals do no obey laws, and gun control laws are no exception. Government and many citizens are in a fantasyland if they think any laws enacted to try and control gun ownership will affect criminals. All the gun laws do is treat me like I am the treat. I have a Second Amendment right to gun ownership and our politicians need to honor that as protectors of our constitution. Look at the states back east, look at what happened to Australia after their gun confiscations; look at their crime statistics and tell me gun control works. The only think stopping a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. And look at Clackamas Town Center – that guy stopped because another guy confronted him with a gun. Joanne Anderson, Deer Island



campuses “gun free zones.” I don’t think this is wise. 1. Almost every recent mass killing has been done by people who would disregard, this designation. Actually, it would give them courage that their plan of mayhem and slaughter would be unopposed long enough to be effective. Do you really think it’s wise to publicize this vulnerability? 2. There’s a saying among law enforcement; “when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.” Why limit the rights of law-abiding citizens who might be able to step in and stop a crazed attacker bent on slaughter? 3. If Congress isn’t allowed Constitutionally to limit access to guns, certainly local school boards don’t have the right. Where’s the ACLU when you really need them? Perhaps its time to look seriously at our mental health structure; how we care and track the seriously mentally ill and deeply troubled among us. We are failing these families.

“One mane with a gun can control 100 without one,” – Vladimir Lenin, Russian communist dictator. And no way is this administrator, or any other, going to give us “their” guns. Second, Constitutional Convention (aka Con. Con.). There is a strong, behind the scenes move to call a Constitutional Convention to – it is claimed – deal with gun violence. No, no, no. Through disarray in Congress now, our Constitution would be destroyed. And, among other things, no guns with which to defend ourselves. No, no, no Con. Con. We must retain our Constitution with its clear reliance upon the God of this universe. And, since this is a moral questions, our churches surely should be speaking out, clearly, on that very point especially. Well, if not the church — who? Dean Nichols, Scappoose

No Con. Con. Can I double up a bit here? First, to those who so foolishly would totally disarm our citizens let me say this: never thought I would be agreeing with a communist. But let me quote one,

Wayne Mayo, Scappoose


Port commissioner candidate

Editor’s note: The deadline for the upcoming election in May is not until March 21. We will have additional, in-depth coverage of upcoming elections and issues after that time.

My name is Michael Clarke and I am running for Port Commissioner, position No. 4. I am an attorney with a Scappoose office and a Rainier office where I am partnered with Steve Petersen. My wife and I have a young daughter and live in Scappoose. My wife graduated from Scappoose High and I graduated from Rainier High. I love this county and it is my home. I am running for this office for the following rea-

sons: 1. Prevent coal trains and any excessive rail traffic from damaging our local economy. 2. Make sure oil trains and all other bulk transport trains are a sensible business decision by placing reasonable limits in Port-controlled contracts so that trains do not harm the people and businesses of our county. 3. Prevent the Port from transferring fire, life, safety, health, and transportation

Oregon Dept. of Tranportation teams up with contractors to support local businesses The Oregon Department of Transportation, the Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs and the Oregon-Columbia Chapter of the Associated General Contractors have joined forces to create the Oregon Small Business Initiative. With infrastructure projects more difficult and technical than ever before, the initiative will improve the capability and capacity of all contractors working on ODOT projects, including primes, subcontractors, and minority, women, and emerging small businesses (MWESB). “This partnership creates the opportunity for minority, women and emerging small busi-

nesses to develop an aggressive support system for business development and growth,” said Sam Brooks, OAME board chairman. The initiative will: train MWESBs and subcontractors on general business subjects, with additional ODOT-specific information that could include training with specific prime contractors; train prime contractors on diversity, mentoring, and small business; and facilitate networking between MWESBs and prime contractors. “My intent has always been to move beyond simply providing contracting opportunities, to helping small businesses develop sustainable careers,” said

ODOT Director Matthew Garrett. “AGC is proud to join ODOT and OAME in this small business initiative,” said Mike Salsgiver, executive director of OregonColumbia Chapter, Associated General Contractors. “A well-trained, competitive community of contractors is essential to our industry’s future.” For more information, call Karla Holland, Oregon-Columbia Chapter, Associated General Contractors of America, Inc., at 503-685-8319 or email; call Matt Rutter, Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs at 503-2497744 or email

parency. 5. Use the Port to stimulate small business, because small businesses are the number one source of job creation in the country. It seems apparent some of the Port’s decisions have been in the Port’s self-interest rather than in the interest of the people and businesses of the county. This is not right. For more information about my positions in this race, go to,

where your comments and suggestions are welcome. I would ask that the Port delay any vote to transfer the lease on the old ethanol plant to the oil transport company [Global Partners, LP] until after the people have had a chance to vote on their candidates. If the Port votes now, then clearly the Port does not care about voters’ opinions, the county’s needs, or the local economy.

Dave can be very shy when you first get to know him. But once he is comfortable with you he will be your best friend. We don't really know much of his history as we rescued him from a high kill shelter in California. We are estimating that Dave is right around a year old.

Excessive rail traffic will act as a tax on local businesses, residents, and property owners because there is no infrastructure to support this and under current contracts, oil transport and coal companies have no obligation to pay for it. 4.

Columbia River PUD franchise fees to cities top $500,000 mark DEER ISLAND — Five local cities received more than a half a million dollars in franchise fees from Columbia River People's Utility District (PUD) recently. The payments to the cities of St. Helens, Scappoose, Columbia City, Rainier and Prescott totaled $547,584. Utilities pay franchise fees to cities in exchange for

permission to operate within the city limits. The fees are set by each city and are collected by the utility from customers within the city limits, as part of the monthly utility bill. The PUD's 2013 franchise fee payments were based on its gross revenues billed during 2012, within each city’s boundaries. The

2013 franchise fee payments were: St. Helens - $342,363 (a 4.2 percent increase); Scappoose – $132,431 (a 2.8 percent increase); Columbia City - $49,896 (unchanged); Rainier - $21,451 (2.6 percent increase) and Prescott $1,443 (1.2 percent increase) In addition to franchise fees, Columbia River PUD

pays property taxes to the counties in which it operates. During 2012, the PUD paid $408,245 in property taxes to Columbia County and $5,627 in property taxes to Multnomah County. According to the PUD, these payments help fund schools, police departments, fire districts and other city and county services.

Empty Bowls gets a hand from local potters WEEKLY MEETINGS

Pat Brame. “But we’re on target to finish on time.� Each bowl is formed on the wheel, then trimmed, bisque fired for 24 hours, then the glaze is applied and the piece is ready for the final firing at temperatures around 2400 degrees F for nine hours. The pieces are then allowed to cool in the kiln overnight – a process that takes approximately three days for each bowl. With four advanced students (Cody Galvin, Mikala Heimuller, Francisco Hernandez, and Jake Sperley), Billie and Sean, the volunteers and a lot of hands on from their teacher, 300 bowls will be ready for the big event on March 15. Cody, a senior, plans on continuing ceramics at Portland Community College. He even bought his own wheel and kiln with the $4,000 he earned by selling his art at The Cottage retail shop in Scappoose. Local ceramic artists also use the kilns, for a small charge, that helps offset costs for the program. It was clear after talking with the students that high school is very proud of their Ceramicist in Residence – his classes are shaping around 200 student potters each year.

We’ve had a layoff from this column for a while and part of that can be attributed to the archives being moved into our new office location before we moved into our new office. This week’s triumphant return comes to us from the March 9, 1967 edition of The Sentinel-Mist. From the Sidelines By Mort the Sport Congratulations are certainly in order for Rainier High School and the fine showing its athletic teams have made this winter. Coach Dan Wheatley’s basketball squad came through with a convincing victory over Clatskanie in the Cowapa League playoff to gain a state A-2 berth. The Columbians will meet Amity in the first round of action next Monday at Coos Bay. Amity gained its spot with a 53-36 win over league champion Nestucca and is reported to have a fine ball club. STAYTON WENT through the season with a perfect 22-0 record and has to be considered the favorite for state honors, but the A-2 teams appear to be evenly matched and a dark-horse winner is not beyond reality. Coach Larry Wallace’s Rainier wrestling squad also made a great showing at the A-2 wrestling tournament in Corvallis last weekend as it finished third behind Reedsport and Henley.

Don Schimmel repeated as state champion in the 168pound class and Dennis Edge captured the 191pound title to bring home two individual champions. ALSO TO BE highly commended are Bill Covlin and his Scappoose wrestlers for their showing at the A-2 mat tourney. They never garnered any individual championships but Dave Miller captured second place in the 106-pound class and Dan Casswell was decisioned by Arden Robinson of Sutherlin, 8-6, in the 157-pound finals. To all these fine athletes and their coaches, our hearty congratulations for a job well done. +++ Action on the local front got underway this week as coaches Gene Strehlou and Bert Burr of St. Helens took advantage of the unseasonable weather to give their track and baseball players some pre-season conditioning. Strehlou’s track squad entertains Scappoose on March 27 in its initial meet while Burr takes his horsehide squad to Portland to meet Lincoln on March 23. Gery Gehrmann’s JV baseball squad will open with Clatskanie at St. Helens on the same day. So there’s not much time until the season kicks off and all the coaches are hoping for more of this good weather.

No. 3 La Salle 50, Scappoose 39

La Salle’s length is problematic Six middle schoolers make state

BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

MILWAUKIE — After suffering their worst loss of the season to the No. 3 La Salle Falcons (23-2, 9-1) – a 60-27 defeat on Jan. 4 – the Scappoose Indians (14-10, 9-1) had a revamped game plan for their March 1 rematch. The plan worked nearly to perfection for Scappoose early on in its rematch against La Salle in the first round of the 2013 OSAA 4A Boys Basketball State Championships. But a surge from the Falcons in the second quarter led the home team to a 50-39 win and a trip to Gill Coliseum in Corvallis for the state quarterfinals. The Indians slowed the game down when they were on offense in the first quarter. When La Salle had the ball, Scappoose players flew around the court causing havoc. “That first quarter was awesome. We missed some easy buckets too. If we make some lay-ins, we easily could’ve been up 11 or 12 to 6,” said Scappoose coach Rahim Tufts. Instead, Scappoose was down 6-5 after one quarter. “The kids did exactly what we asked them to do. The game plan was to neutralize their height a little bit. If we make some shots, it changes the tempo of how the second quarter goes,” Tufts said. While the Indians entered the second quarter down only one point, they exited it trailing by 16. La Salle’s length – the Falcons have six players 6’4” or taller – made the team’s defensive traps even more effective. When Scappoose was able to break a trap, the Indians had a hard time making baskets. “Their length hurt us, their trapping hurt us. I thought we defended really well, but that second quarter nothing would drop,” Tufts said. While nothing was going in for Scappoose, La Salle made three 3-pointers in the quarter. All three came from guys Tufts said ScapSee INDIANS, Page A14 BOYS BASKETBALL

Storm halts Lions in play-in round

Six middle school wrestlers from St. Helens and Scappoose have advanced to the 2013 Oregon Middle School State Championship Tournament. Those six wrestlers finished in the top four spots at the Metro Regional Meet on March 2 to qualify for the state meet on March 9. St. Helens eighth graders Haidon Allen and Myles Terry both went undefeated to win their brackets. Allen was 5-0 at 110 pounds. His closest match was a 3-1 overtime win over a wrestler from Canby. Terry also went 5-0. His coach Scott Revis said Terry had a close match in the quarterfinals, but otherwise dominated the 140-pound bracket. Scappoose eighth grader Zach Gadbois took second in the 132-pound bracket. He was 4-1 despite being sick much of the week, including the day of the meet. Seventh grader Jimmy Jones of Scappoose went 3-1 in the 90-pound bracket to finish in third place. Scappoose eighth graders Clayton Dietz and Isaac Bussey both qualified for state by placing fourth. Dietz went 4-2 to take fourth at 160 pounds. “He had a very good tournament and both losses could have gone either way. I feel if he is on, he could place next week,” Revis said. Bussey was 0-2 in the 275-pound weight class. St. Helens eighth graders Tyler Cooper (102 pounds), Colton Beisley (117 pounds) and Nick Richardson (150 pounds) all finished fifth in their divisions. Cooper was 4-2; Beisley and Richardson were both 3-2. See STATE, Page A13 GOLF

ST. HELENS — A cold spell to start the game proved too much for the St. Helens Lions (14-11, 86) to overcome during their playin game against the visiting Summit Storm (12-14, 1-8) on Feb. 26. The Storm took a 14-0 lead before Lion senior Nathan Hunter knocked down a 3-pointer with 1:21 left in the first quarter. The Lions finished the first quarter with more fouls (six) than points (five). Summit went on to win, 61-50. “I think we were just really excited that it was the playoffs and everything. It wasn’t just another game; it was ‘It’s the playoffs!’ It just had to be another game,” Hunter said. “We didn’t come out ready, we weren’t shooting well. Things weren’t going our way.” Hunter helped keep the Lions afloat early, scoring 12 of the team’s 16 points in the first half. Summit led by double digits until the fourth quarter, when St. Helens went on a run to trim its deficit from 18-20 points down to five. A pair of 3-pointers from freshman Quintin Galvin and back-toback steals from senior Cody Beisley helped ignite the run. A 3pointer from senior Jared Bonney brought the score to 48-42.

St. Helens senior Nathan Hunter scored a game-high 23 points against Summit in the 5A play-in round, but the Lions dropped a 61-50 contest.

1:20 left had St. Helens trailing 51-46, but the Lions couldn’t get closer than that in the final minute.

“I think a lot of it was just settling down. We played. We went out and did what we had to do. It wasn’t enough, but we had to end

on a high note somehow,” Hunter said. See LIONS, Page A14

Carnahan to run in Idaho

Tia Carnahan

Scappoose High School senior Tia Carnahan has signed a National Letter of Intent to run cross country and track at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. With her senior season of track still ahead of her, Carnahan is already one of the most decorated distance runners to wear Indian black and orange. She has finished in the top five in the state twice in cross country and once in track. She has two league championships to her name in cross country and two second-place finishes. She’s finished second in league in track three times as well. In a press release on the Lewis-Clark website, LCSC coach Mike Collins said, “Tia is a wonderful young lady

and we are excited about adding her to our program. She’s a small-school girl that we believe will show even more of what she is capable of in our program. Her 3,000meter track time from a year ago would have qualified her for the NAIA Indoor National Championships right now. “We fully expect to see her take it to another level in cross country. She has already shown an inner confidence and determination is a key characteristic that we have seen in some of our best runners. We expect great things, and I am sure she does too.” Her high school coach, David Harley, also believes Carnahan will find success there. “She is excited and it

PORTLAND — Plenty of golf coaches will tell you putting is where you score. Jack Carter of St. Helens scored big with his putting at the Portland Golf Show recently. Carter won a putting competition at the event, held at the Oregon Convention Center. In the process of doing so, he won two rounds at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club and a three-day, two-night stay with all the free golf he wants at La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs. Carter’s winning putt didn’t actually go in, but came up four inches short. Not bad for a 50-foot putt. The competition consisted of putting a ball at a cup 50 feet away down a 5-foot wide corridor. The putt couldn’t touch the sides, nor could it hit the back end of the runway. On the first day of the three-day event, Carter spent $5 to get six putts. For each putt he made, he would be able to take that many attempts in the next round. Each make was also worth a free round at Pumpkin Ridge. He made two of his six tries. That left him as one of about 200 golfers to advance to the next round, held on the third day. So Carter returned two days later with his friend Neil Johnson for his two attempts. He missed the first one and then made the next to reach the finals. Carter’s 50-percent success rate was much better than most; one guy ended up 0-for-13. Out of the 200 eligible golfers, about 100 putted during the semifinal round. Carter was one of three to make a putt. Carter was picked to putt first in the finals. His ball rolled up to the cup, then started rolling back down the slight hill, ending up four inches away. The second guy came within about two feet and the last guy wasn’t close at all. That earned Carter the stay in La Quinta. – Kyle Boggs

CORVALLIS — The Columbia County girls rugby team finished 1-1-1 during a 10-team preseason tournament at Oregon State University on March 2. Columbia County started with a 15-0 win against Cleveland. Lindsy Waitkus, Victoria Horecky and Kayleigh Horecky all scored tries for CC. “The backs were able to offload and use speed to score. Forwards also did a good job of rucking and maintaining ball possession and that’s how Lindsy scored her try,” said coach Ashley Swanson. Columbia County suffered a 15-0 defeat to Grant in the second game. Swanson said the team was on defense for the majority of the game against Grant. “It was our poor ball control that led to our defeat. Grant was a big team and it was difficult to play against,” she said. In the final game of the tournament, Columbia County battled to a 5-5 tie against a team from Linn and Benton counties.

Senior Chris Tinning finished with 8 points. Kramer, at 5’10�, was also tasked with defending La Salle’s 6’5� wing Jacob McGraw, one of the top players in the state according to Tufts. “I thought Kyle did a great job on him. He got under his skin, was physical, competed with him,� Tufts said. “McGraw had to work for every one of his 13 points.� Tufts said his entire squad got into the act on the defensive side of the ball. “The whole team played really well on D. It was fun watching Kyle chase (McGraw) around. He’s got a sixto seven-inch height difference. Logan (Stanton) battled their big kid, was physical with him. I thought everyone played well.

We came back, started 0-5, and then guys just came together and improved and improved, won league. It’s like holy smokes. We really focused on the positives. We accomplished a ton,� he said.
