County unemployment rate dips again



The labor market in Columbia County appears to be slowly improving, according to statistics just released by the Oregon Employment Dept. Columbia County’s unemployment rate stood at 8.4 percent in February, down from 9.6 percent in Feb. 2013. The unemployment rate is the percent of the county’s labor force actively looking for work, inside or outside of Columbia County. “Things have gotten positive,” said Shawna Sykes, Workforce Analyst for the Oregon Employment Dept., “these are good indicators.” Regionally, both Clatsop and Tillamook counties boasted lower rates of unemployment. Tillamook County had a 7.7 percent rate and Clatsop County was even lower at 7.3 percent, both better than the Oregon average of 7.8 percent. Employment in the three counties of northwest Oregon is expected to grow 12 percent over the next decade. Among the sectors projected to add the most jobs are leisure and hospitality, private education and health services, trade, transportation and utilities and construction. Several large industrial projects at Port Westward in the northern part of the county could potentially add hundreds more family-wage jobs over the next decade.


City sells timber for $613,000 SCAPPOOSE — At the April 7 Scappoose City Council meeting, councilors awarded a bid contract to Columbia Vista for the harvest of timber in the Gourlay Creek Tract. Interim City Manager Don Otterman stated that Columbia Vista, a forest products corporation out of Vancouver, submitted the highest bid at $565 per 1,000 board feet. “The estimate is that we have 1,098,000 board feet

YANKTON — Students, teachers and staff at Yankton Arthur Academy are trying to remain optimistic after discovering that thieves stole computers and overhead equipment from the school over the weekend. According to Principal Michael Arthur someone used bolt cutters to cut the

lock off a cabinet and stole 20 laptops, two projectors and two document cameras. He suspects that thieves must have gained access through a computer lab door that was left unlatched. Arthur said there was no visible sign of forced entry and no vandalism was committed, two details that he felt were positive aspects of the incident. “We’ve been sharing with students that yes, it’s upset-

ting, but we are surrounded by supportive friends, supportive teachers and loving parents,” the principal explained. “No one was hurt, there was no danger, and these are material things that could be replaced. It was a teachable moment.” The theft is estimated to be a $6,000 to $7,000 loss to the school, but Arthur assured that the missing equipment would have little impact on students’ educa-

tion. “The computers are not a foundational piece of our education program,” he explained. “The teachers, the curriculum, the books — those are. The only impact is convenience and enrichment. It is a loss, but it won’t affect us negatively in the instruction we provide.” The 20 white Apple laptops are about 7 years old and each are labeled with the name of an Oregon river (Al-

sea, Breitenbush, Columbia, etc.). One projector is blue, the other is a white Epson. The document cameras are black and made by Samsung. Each item’s serial number has been submitted to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, which is handling the investigation. There are no suspects at this time. Anyone who has information about the theft is asked to contact the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.

CRFR bond to fund station upgrades, new fire engine BY AMANDA FRINK


COLUMBIA COUNTY — New equipment, a fire engine and station upgrades will be coming to Columbia River Fire & Rescue if voters approve a $15 million bond measure on the May 20 ballot. Measure 5-237, consisting of three five-year bond issuances, is anticipated to cost property owners less than 30 cents per $1,000 of assessed valuation, according to CRFR Chief Jay Tappan. The tax would be in addition to the existing permanent property tax rate of $2.97 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. “Fire districts are struggling with equipment costs and going for levies for the big equipment because grants are drying up,” Tappan explains. “There’s no fluff in this thing, they’ve all been accounted for in this 20-year spend out.

St. Helens’ Aldridge one of select few picked for military academy BY KYLE BOGGS

Eric Aldridge’s drive and work ethic is allowing him to follow in his father’s footsteps – or rather, to follow his father’s sea legs. A recent announcement from Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley’s office indicated the St. Helens High School senior is already well on his way to chasing that dream. Aldridge is one of only 14 Oregon high school students out of the 35 nominated

by Sen. Merkley who was accepted as a student at one of the United States’ five military academies. Aldridge will attend the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, N.Y. A press release from Sen. Merkley’s office calls the U.S. military academies “among the most selective and difficult to earn admission to among higher education institutions in the U.S. The opportunity to attend a military academy provides the appointee with a full four-year college education

and leadership training for becoming an officer in the U.S. military.” All four years of tuition and room and board will be covered, Aldridge said. Once he’s finished with school, he will go into a reserve role with the United States Navy. He will also graduate with a ship’s officer license. He’s planning to focus his studies on marine transportation, somewhat following in the footsteps of his father. “My dad is a marine surveyor, he was a ship captain. He’s told me all these great ­­­­

stories. He’s a major influence,” Aldridge said. As is, he says, the possibility of a high-paying job is in the future. When he’s finished with school, Aldridge will have his third mate’s license. After accumulating a year of sea time, he will be eligible to test for a second mate’s license. The same cycle follows for attaining a first mate’s license and then trying to become a captain, which Aldridge said is the See GOAL, Page A2

CJ Peterson: From bully to businessman BY AMANDA FRINK

ST. HELENS — A former delinquent channeled his violent past into motivation to change lives by opening a business to educate and empower, Bully Proof. A gym specializing in street martial arts and self-defense, Bully Proof opened five months ago at 1945 Columbia Boulevard in St. Helens. Owner CJ Peterson credits his success in martial arts to his abusive childhood and criminal transgressions from his adolescence. “That’s what gave me the drive that 95 percent of fighters don’t have — to be able to take a punch,” Peterson explains. “But then I became a bully. I was wild, unpredictable. I was uncaring. I had no heart. I didn’t know how to fight back. But once I learned how to, it got addicting.” Peterson says by the time he was 13 or 14 years old, he was being hired by drug dealers to “rough up people.” From there, he became involved in a gang and started selling drugs. During his freshman year of high school, he was arrested for dealing drugs and was locked up until what would have been his senior year. He served another six months in jail for unpaid fees when he was in his early 20s. While he was locked up, Peterson says he saw people he knew while growing up and realized that they were still doing drugs and committing crimes.

CJ Peterson demonstrates a martial arts technique to one of his growing num- ­­­­ ber of students.

They hadn’t made lives for themselves; they didn’t have jobs or families. “I asked them why they were doing what they were doing, and they said, ‘Well, you got me high the first time,’” he laments. Feeling loaded with guilt, Peterson requested to be placed in isolated confinement, or “the hole,” to avoid contact with his former associates. For the duration of his sentence, he passed the time studying martial arts. “While I was in the hole, I said I would come back [to St. Helens] and change the town I helped destroy,” he remembers. He joined a martial arts gym to expand his skill set, but he was eventually asked to leave due to other members’ complaints about his tattoos, some of which are indicative of his troubled past. “I was devastated,” Peterson admits. In the following days, a friend suggested that Peterson teach martial arts to others. Together they created a curriculum, purchased any used equipment they could afford, and found neighborhood kids who wanted to learn street martial arts and self-defense techniques. “I started teaching in my front yard on 10th Street with this old rickety punching bag that was falling apart and a pair of gloves that were covered in blood,” Peterson admits. Peterson’s free classes were so successful that word spread quickly and students said they were willing to pay him. “I wanted to develop a gym where See BULLY, Page A2

ultimate goal. “Hopefully I’ll become a ship captain one day. I’m looking into oil rigs,” he said. “My dad’s friend is a captain of one of those and he makes good money.” While the possibility of becoming a ship captain is about a decade away, Aldridge is currently looking forward to relocating close to the Big Apple. “I’m definitely excited to go to New York,” said Aldridge, who has yet to travel farther east than Iowa. The base is on Long Island, across the bay from Manhattan. Aldridge is the only Oregonian selected this year to enroll in the USMMA. In order to do so, the SHHS senior with a 4.0 grade point average had to improve his SAT score after his first test. On his second crack at the SAT, he scored an 1820, up from 1710 the first try. That, coupled with his flawless GPA, some essays and nominations from Sen. Merkley and Oregon Rep. Suzanne Bonamici was enough to get him the nod at the USMMA. “I applied to a few different schools. This one in New York is prestigious,” Aldridge said. Aldridge, the No. 1 golfer on the SHHS team this spring, plans to continue golfing on the USMMA club team as well.

St. Helens adopts pot moratorium Medical marijuana users will need to look outside St. Helens for a supply of the drug. At its April 2 meeting, the St. Helens City Council adopted a moratorium on the operation of medical marijuana facilities. The moratorium effectively bans any facility that dispenses marijuana for medicinal purposes within the city limits of St. Helens. In 2013, the Oregon legislature opened the door to medical marijuana when it passed HB3460, providing immunity from prosecution for any owner or worker in a facility that dispenses marijuana. But in 2014 the legislature passed Senate Bill 1531 which removed that immunity for workers if a local jurisdiction, a city or county passed a moratorium on such facilities. Since SB1531 passed dozens of Oregon cities and counties have passed moratoriums. The moratorium is imposed by ordinance and is effective from now until May 1, 2015.

you could learn to defend yourself, or if you are a bully and want to change yourself,” he explains. Peterson continues, “We have a society filled with victims. No one should be forced to help you. You should be prepared and fit to defend yourself – and not with weapons, those are a weakness. … There isn’t always enough time to get a teacher or call the police, and sometimes getting a teacher can make the situ-

ation worse. “I do not teach how to fight. I teach street martial arts and self-defense to become a better person physically, mentally and emotionally. And it’s taught by someone who has done it.” Bully Proof offers an array of classes and opportunities to learn. The gym hosts an open gym each day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and a street martial arts and self defense class from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Peterson says the Bully Proof fitness program is

“the most intense street martial arts class around.” He currently has 50 students of various ages, health conditions and abilities. Though all ages are welcome at Bully Proof, Peterson recommends kids be at least 9 years old because “sometimes we get a little rough.” Students can learn discipline and respect, how to intervene, how to have a voice, and how to diffuse an altercation. Additionally, they learn real-life skills to defend themselves in the event

In the future, he would like to offer a school environment where students can learn physical fitness and take online education courses. One day, he hopes to pass the business down to his daughter, who is now 3. While he is still throwing and blocking punches, Peterson is proud of his transformation from fostering fear to cultivating confidence and respect — even with his tattoos.

that they are targeted in a rape, robbery or assault attempt. Peterson also hires specialists to visit the gym and share their skills in martial arts, boxing, yoga, survival skills, counseling and more. While Bully Proof is a business, Peterson says his focus isn’t on making a profit but rather improving the community. “But I want to be remembered for my business rather than the pain I caused in the past,” he states.

Fire consumed a front-end loader and threatened to spread to a bark dust pile in Scappoose. On April 7, Scappoose fire crews were called to Beaver Bark at 54000 West Lane Road to extinguish a fire in the machine. The fire threatened to spread to a large pile of bark dust but was quickly brought under control. The bark dust was saved, but Fire Chief Griesen said the front-end loader was destroyed. Fire officials estimate the loss at $150,000-$200,000.

Faced with tough times, family finds local relief ST. HELENS — The public is encouraged to get a meal and feed a family in the process by attending the eighth annual Empty Bowls event on Saturday, April 11 at McBride Elementary School. The event will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will raise funds for the Columbia Pacific Food Bank, which provides food and meals for people like Beth and her family, who are struggling to make ends meet. Last May, Beth, her husband Cameron, and their 10and 12-year-old boys moved to the area from Alfalfa, a small town east of Bend. The house they were renting had sold and they had nowhere to go. The couple was forced to quit their jobs – hers as a store cashier and his at an equestrian center – and

move away. They hoped to find another small town to call home, and ended up in Columbia County because Cameron had family here. “When we moved here, we had nothing,” Beth said. “We ended up in a tent with our kids for four months,” Beth told food bank organizers. “You become resourceful fast when you don’t have any income. We’ve made our own laundry soap. We’ve used coffee filters for toilet paper. Trying to pull ourselves back up and find jobs is hard, because we don’t have resources. Everywhere we go, a hundred people have applied. “There’s nowhere to help set you up to get good paying jobs. Where are we going to get training? We just need help or we’re not going to get out of this rough spot at all. And then where are our

kids going to be? What hope are they going to get?” Her sons thought living in a tent was fun at first, but eventually, it took a toll on them. “My oldest was in 4-H [in Alfalfa],” she explained. “We had our lives there and it was just taken. Life can change quickly. It’s hard to leave friends and it’s hard to go hungry … It made them thankful of the things we do have very quick.” Cameron has been doing side jobs, such as yard work and mechanic services, to make ends meet, but sometimes it’s hard to feed everyone. “Putting dinner on the table some nights is our biggest worry,” Beth admitted. “I don’t worry so much about me not eating. My kids have to come first. We’ll eat a piece of bread with some

mayonnaise because my kids ate all the dinner or the kids just get mayonnaise sandwiches for dinner, because that’s all I have. “We started putting macaroni on our mayonnaise sandwiches just for something different,” she later added. “My favorite thing about coming to the meal site for dinner is knowing my kids aren’t going to bed hungry. My dream is to set my kids up so they won’t have to struggle. I don’t want them to worry about how they’re going to feed their kids. “We’re able to go to the food bank once a month and it helps make our food go further when there isn’t much else around … It does help a lot of people and a lot of people depend on the food bank.” Beth and her family are

now living in a house, and are grateful for the pastas, fruits, vegetables and peanut butter they receive from the food bank. “We’ve been in our place a couple months; things are looking better,” she reported Monday. “The kids are doing good in school and we’ve met a lot of great people here, too, so it’s growing on us.” Empty Bowls is one of the major fundraisers for Columbia Pacific Food Bank. The event will offer a simple dinner of soup and bread to bring awareness to hunger. Guests will get to select a bowl handcrafted by Rainier and St. Helens high school students and then fill the bowl with a soup donated by Dockside Steak and Pasta, St. Helens Market Fresh IGA, Klondike Restaurant & Bar, St.

Helens Elks Club, Fultano’s Pizza, Sunshine Pizza or Bertucci’s. There will also be a silent auction and students’ pottery for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the food bank. Tickets are $10 each; sales are limited to 300. Purchase tickets at the door of the event or at any of the following locations: Diana’s Formal Affair and Fultano’s Pizza in Scappoose; and Sunshine Pizza, Columbia Pacific Food Bank, and the South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce in St. Helens. McBride Elementary School is located at 2774 Columbia Boulevard in St. Helens. For more information on Columbia Pacific Food Bank, log onto

CRFR: Bond measure could provide much-needed resources From PAGE A1 “We do the best we can with what we’ve got,” the chief adds. “I think we’ve thought it out really well. It looks expensive, but broken down by the years it’s more palatable.” If Measure 5-237 is approved, the bond revenue would allow CRFR to replace some fire apparatuses, ambulances, rescue vehicles, safety equipment (self-contained breathing apparatuses, turnout gear and radios) and other related equipment. Tappan says his department also needs a fire engine for the Deer Island station, which only has a utility vehicle and a small fire truck. Currently, if a 911 call in the area requires a fire engine, the department retrieves one from the St. Helens station, and Tappan says this negatively affects CRFR’s insur-

ance service office (ISO) rating in the Canaan Road area. Some insurance companies use ISO ratings to calculate insurance premiums. “We’re working really, really hard to get Deer Island credited,” says Tappan. “We’re recruiting volunteers and putting them through the academy so it can be staffed.” The Deer Island station has already received a new roof and HVAC system. The Rainier station, which is staffed by four fulltime firefighters, is in need of seismic upgrades. Tappan says the department received grant funding for engineering services and determined that the station needs “substantial work” — including structural reinforcements and drainage improvements — to bring it up to seismic code. Tappan adds that he would like to see the

fairgrounds station — a two-person station with two bays — expand to become a four- or six-person station with an additional bathroom and another bay. “This levy will allow us to maintain our current service levels and improve in some areas, specifically Deer Island. It allows us not to use older equipment for the frontline. It’s well thought out; it’s been planned over years. We stretch our dollars

as far as we can on apparatuses and we have some great fire mechanics servicing them. We keep our apparatuses rolling and in good shape, but they eventually need replacement.” Tappan says the average fire truck has a life span of about 20 years, whereas an ambulance, which is driven 60,000 miles per year, has a life span of about four years. The chief says the baseline cost of a fire engine is

$400,000. An ambulance can cost between $160,000 and $180,000. In addition to some equipment reaching the end of their life spans, Tappan says other equipment, such as radios and turnout gear, must be replaced to meet new standards. Lastly, some of the revenue would be used to refinance the district’s outstanding loan obligations that financed the Lee Broadbant

Training Center on McNulty Way. “If the bond is denied, our biggest shortfall would be Deer Island,” says Tappan. “Rainier would wait for upgrades and so would the fairgrounds, and more money would go to fleet maintenance.” CRFR’s seven fire stations provide fire and EMS services to approximately 27,000 residents in a nearly 200-square-mile area encompassing St. Helens, Rainier, Columbia City, Prescott, Warren, McNulty, Deer Island, Yankton, Lindberg, Goble, Shiloh Basin and Fern Hill. The result of a 2002 merge between St. Helens Rural Fire District and Rainier Rural Fire District, CRFR consists of 36 career firefighters/paramedics, 45 volunteer firefighters and 10 administrative/support staff.

Big box outlet store comes to St. Helens BY DON PATTERSON

When you wander through a big box retailer in Portland or Longview, do you ever wonder what happens all the leftover merchandise that doesn’t sell? Turns out, some of it comes to St. Helens. A new store on Highway 30, aptly named Route 30 Liquidators, is an outlet for overstock, out-of-season and return merchandise from one of the major retailers in the Pacific Northwest. All the merchandise is new, or refurbished right at the store, before it goes on the sales floor. Josh Weaver co-owns the store with his mother, Kristine Weaver. Kristine started the store after visiting a similar one in Clackamas County. It’s the first store she has owned and the first business she has ever run. Josh ran a property management and inspection business. “It was many sleepless nights,” she says. Kristine, who lives in Canby, said she began looking for a location suitable for

a store like this. “I did the research and there is nothing like this here,” she says. She chose St. Helens for the business opportunity and hopes to move here eventually. Monday’s are stock days, so the Weavers unload a fifty-foot trailer containing pallets of merchandise, one of three that arrived last month. Neither Josh or Kristine knows what they’ll get, but most of the merchandise is popular, fastselling items. Last month, a pallet of vacuum cleaners arrived. They sold out within a couple of weeks. The bins contain nearly everything you’d find in a major retailer, clothing, shoes, appliances, watches, food, cases of bottled water and Carhartt jackets. All must be sorted, tested, inspected and if necessary refurbished. Kristine points to a comforter, returned because it had a tiny discoloration. She marks the stain with a pink, hand written note before putting it on the shelf at a fraction of its original price. Josh’s wife, Vanessa, is charged with merchandising

the store. She does the food and general merchandise, Kristine takes care of the clothes. Most of the inventory is marked down at least 25 percent from the big box price. Most is brand name. “We’ve had so many people come in and thank us for opening,” says Kristine. “Why drive clear to Portland, when you can get the same merchandise right here?” “It’s good quality merchandise at good prices,” adds Vanessa. Route 30 Liquidators opened for business on Feb. 28. Store hours are Tuesday through Sunday. “We restock on Mondays, so Tuesdays,” Josh says, “are a good day to come in.” Kristine Weaver says this is a family business. She hopes the store offers her, her son and his wife and the rest of their family a good living, she says. On April 7, CNBC, the cable TV business channel ran a feature on the trend of people creating jobs for themselves by opening local businesses. The Weaver family might be as good an example as you could find. Get the News when it HAPPENS.

Letters What Does It Take To Be a Good Judge? It’s hard for ordinary citizens to know who to vote for in a judicial contest. We know all judicial candidates are at least smart enough to qualify for the Oregon State Bar. What more is needed to be an effective judge? My own choice for Position #1 Judge is Cathleen Callahan for the following reasons. First, for many years I have served with Cathleen on the Board of Directors for Columbia County Legal Aid (CCLA), so I know how committed Cathleen is to helping local citizens navigate the court system. Cathleen helped ensure that Columbia County still has its own legal aid office, so that low income citizens don’t have to drive to Portland or Hillsboro to get legal help. Neither Jean Martwick nor Jason Heym has chosen to participate in CCLA’s pro bono attorney program (which sets a bad example within the county’s generous attorney community), but Cathleen is always among the top local attorneys volunteering hours to serve the county’s needy. Columbia County would benefit from having a “helpful judge”. Second, no other Candidate for this position has lived, worked, and volunteered in Columbia County as long and as actively as Cathleen. Of the candidates, only Cathleen has chosen to center her life in the county. Community involvement has given Cathleen a broad understanding of community culture, values, and issues that will help inform her judicial decisions and allow her to craft successful remedies. Columbia County would benefit from having a judge with local knowledge and empathy.


Finally and importantly, Cathleen has a balanced temperament, being both a good listener and an incisive decision-maker. Columbia County would benefit from having a judge who is both sympathetic and decisive. Maddy Sheehan Scappoose Who Is Jean Marie Martwick? She was appointed by the governor to the position of Columbia County Circuit Court Judge over the candidates now running against her. Judge Martwick was a single mother of three working her way through college and law school as a waitress. Her legal career started to Multnomah County Public Defenders, Inc., in 2001, going to Washington County to handle major felonies. She has worked helping indigent children and adults in civil and criminal cases in the circuit and municipal courts and mediated small claims cases. Everyone that has been in front of her as a judge says that she has been very fair and helpful with whatever problem they may have had. Why not keep someone who is doing a fabulous job as judge, is ethical, honest, lives in the county and, wants to serve the people in Columbia County. If you want this type of Judge, vote for Judge Jean Marie Martwick. Pauline Atchison St. Helens Laughter, Wit and Humor Dear Columbia County, hello! My name is Mayland and I am the proud wife of Jason Heym, candidate for Columbia County Circuit Court Judge. We will be celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary this May and I would like to tell you about the man I call my husband and best friend!



Dave Coverly

Life started when we met. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for or what I wanted from life until I met Jason. It turns out I wanted a loving, considerate, thoughtful and fiercely loyal partner to help me raise our children. I received just that and more. He has always been there to take care of our children, my parents and me. Always quick with a joke, he keeps me laughing; his wit and humor has been the real joy of our relationship. I can say unequivocally that I am a better woman, a better person, because of Jason. He always accepts me as I am while challenging me to be a better version of myself. I have received unflinching support from him as I have made my way through life as a mother, woman and nurse. Jason is one of strongest people I know and I carry his strength with me everyday. The man I know at home is the same man I see when among friends and colleagues. I know he will bring a level of dedication and service unmatched in Columbia County. Mayland Heym Scappoose The “Regulatory Funnel” Many who testified at the Oregon DEQ hearing on Thursday, April 3, in Clatskanie left that experience feeling frustrated and discouraged. The DEQ event was held to elicit public comments regarding the permit to allow Global Partners to increase the amount of air pollution it can discharge from oil transfer operations at Port Westward. Thomas Linzey of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), a community rights organization, says that citizen frustration results

from what he terms the “regulatory funnel.” Far from protecting citizens’ rights, it actually serves to restrict citizens from any effective input in the process. Imagine a funnel, very large at the top, and very narrow at the bottom. Label the wide top of the funnel “Oil Operations in Columbia County.” That is a very broad issue involving community safety, health, effects on local small business, environmental protection, and sustainable agriculture among others.. But those broad community consider-

ations are not allowed by the regulatory system. The system is set up so that public “input” is restricted to a very narrowly defined issue at the bottom of the funnel. What happened at the DEQ hearing was a classic example of this. DEQ officials stated at the outset that the only issue they wanted the public to testify about was the allowable volume of air pollution Global would be permitted to discharge. Much to their credit, many speakers refused to obey this attempt to restrict their citizen rights and testified about the much broader com-

munity concerns at the top of the “funnel.” We citizens in Columbia County can no longer trust the DEQ, our local elected officials or Gov. Kitzhaber to practice good stewardship of our communities. We must do it ourselves. The community rights movement is proving a very effective way to accomplish that all across this country. Please contact me to learn more.

Wyden, Merkley call for more funding for oil train safety Dear Chairman Murray and Ranking Member Collins: As you begin consideration of the Fiscal Year 2015 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, we urge you to support new funding for a Safe Transportation of Energy Products Fund, while also making needed investments to increase Federal Railroad Administration and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration inspection personnel. As you know, four years ago, our nation’s railroads hauled very little crude oil by rail. Now, railroads transport approximately one-

tenth of U.S. crude oil output – approximately 800,000 barrels per day. The rail system in the United States has seen a 6000-percent increase in crude on rail since 2007 driven in large part by remarkable increases in energy development from the Bakken Formation in North Dakota and Montana. In light of several tragic accidents involving crude-by-rail trains – including the most recent derailment and explosion of tanker cars carrying crude oil near Casselton, N.D. – communities stretching across our country from the Midwest to coastal ports and refineries are rightly concerned about the safe movement of these com-

bustible products. A Safe Transportation and Energy Products Fund would provide U.S. Department of Transportation new flexibility to address emerging issues related to the transportation of Bakken crude and other energy products – including, but not limited to: more expeditious rulemakings, technical studies, increased rail and energy product inspections, safety mitigation and response planning, first responder training, and community outreach. Additionally, the fund would provide needed additional resources to complete Operation Backpressure, a study of the qualities and characteristics of crude oil in

the United States. Completion of this study is an important step because its results will inform future regulatory action.     The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is currently working to improve design and safety standards for the DOT-111 tank cars that transport Bakken crude oil and other hazardous materials.  Providing full funding for the Safe Transportation and Energy Products Fund is one way to support PHMSA in finalizing and implementing new rules governing the use of DOT-111 tank cars, as well as establishing a new, hardened tank car standard for the use of

Columbia Humane Society

needs to promote public safety, react quickly to emerging issues, and protect communities across our country from future tragedies involving the movement of energy products.

dents in school respect Buddy and feel he is the type of person they want organizing and Buddy Terry running student activities. Buddy is extremely involved in academics, student government and the community. He has been an ODS counselor and a volunteer at the Humane Society. All of this shows a well rounded person who gives his all everywhere he goes. You would think this would stress him out and wear him out but you would never know how busy he is. He comes to school each day positive and ready for the challenges the day will bring.

Next year Buddy will be attending OSU and major in anthropology. He is also interested in everything, including ultimate Frisbee with friends and hanging out at home watching good TV shows. He feels his best attribute to be his collectiveness. He said, “Through any situation, no matter how stressful, I seem to be able to look at it as a whole carefully and work through it.” Others who know Buddy would say the same of him and that he brings a maturity that many people his age do not have and that his calm is very reassuring when things get stressful. Buddy would like to thank his teachers and staff who recommended him for this award and he would also like to thank them for their support throughout his high school endeavors.

Living history performers to join students at Fifth Annual Rainier Revisited event RAINIER — The students of Rainier High School are the backbone of Rainier Revisited, but advisor and history teacher Andrew Demko has invited other northwest historians to join the fun, encourage the students and add their expertise to the April 12 event at the Beaver Homes Grange. This year, living history performer Karen Haas and her Hudson’s Bay Company campsite filled with intriguing historic tools, crafts and musical instruments will

bring to life the times of the Northwest fur trade. From 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., she and her husband will engage visitors fascinating facts and hands-on experiences as they portray engagés of the Hudson’s Bay Company. At 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., Karen will regale all with entertaining tales of the times. Haas can often be found bringing the past to life at Northwest historic sites such as Fort Nisqually Living History Museum in Tacoma,

Wash., and San Juan Islands National Historic Park. Her living history presentations have been featured at Fort Clatsop, National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Baker City, and Whitman Mission National Historic Site. Her effervescent style engages emotions, from the sublime to the ridiculous, in audiences both young and old. Haas feels especially rewarded telling the tales of those whose voices are usually silent in history — women.

“It is finished”


t is finished!”    Do you understand the depth of these words?    The Gospel writer John alone records this sixth word of Jesus from the cross.    With these words, Jesus then willingly gave up His life.    Let us take a moment to learn just what those words mean to us because this word, “It is finished” is so important to our faith that we dare not give it only passing thought just to drop it a few moments later.


n order to understand the eternal importance and urgency of these words, we need to stand before the immutable Law of God once again during this Lenten season. Consider these questions based on the Ten Commandments: • Do you think God doesn’t see what you do or care about your sins? • Have you used the name of God to swear or curse others? • Do you make going to Church a low priority in relation to other things? • Are you having or desiring illicit sex (i.e. outside of marriage)? • Do you have impure thoughts about others, or look at pornography? • Have you been angry and/or hateful in thought towards anyone? • Have you failed or refused to forgive and be reconciled with anyone?


ven a quick glance at these sentences should have us realizing that we have offended God in thought, word and action. God tells us that “The wages of sin is death.” In other words, the word we should hear from God is this: “I am finished with your continual iniquity, your petty anger and lack of forgiveness toward those who insult you. I am done with your bickering and fighting. I am completely fed up with your lust and disrespect for My Word and Sacrament and in hearing the Word of forgiveness I have so graciously set before you. So my final words to you are these: “Go away from Me, you cursed ones, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25: 41).


raise God, these are not the final words we hear from the God of all Creation as He hung on the cross for our sins. Through the Law, God is calling us to recognize our sin so that we might repent. The “It” in “It is finished,” is the suffering of the everlasting fire of hell. The “It” is the redemption of all sinners. “It is finished,” first of all was the solemn report that Jesus, the Son of God, made to His Father. Jesus is telling the Father that the salvation of sinful man, determined in the council of the Trinity before the foundation of the world was laid, is now finished and complete.


owever, it is also a proclamation that was intended for all, indeed, for you. That is why Jesus uttered this word in a loud voice. Jesus’ sixth word from the cross tells us that His sacrifice on the cross for the iniquity of us all, is now complete requiring no further work of sacrifice on our part. Then with this shout of triumph, “It is finished,” Jesus directs all troubled sinners to Himself as their only and sure refuge from the darkness and gloom of eternal hell.


t is finished,” means that the atonement Jesus made for your sin is all-sufficient and valid for all time. The Bible tells us (Romans 6:10) that the death Jesus died, He died once and for all. Jesus tells us that “It is finished” so that we are not “finished”, for all eternity, that is, sent to eternal perdition with no hope and no mercy. How eternally precious are the words of our Savior, “It is finished?” -- Pastor Joseph Burkhardt

Arts & Cultural Commission raffles Trail Blazers Basketball ST. HELENS — The St. Helens Arts & Cultural Commission is selling raffle tickets for a team signed Portland Trail Blazers basketball to raise funds for the St. Helens Gateway Sculpture Project. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for six tickets. The winner will be drawn and announced on April 11.

If these topics interest you, please join us! The Public Forum will start with a presentation that includes a project overview and a brief report on the Parks and Trails Master Plan online survey results. Following this presentation, we will discuss the specific park improvements and the various trail route proposals we are considering for this Master Plan update. The public will be encouraged to ask questions or comment on our park and trail proposals, as well as make their own recommendations for recreational improvements. Any input about these proposals will directly shape the Master Plan, so this Public Forum is the perfect time to participate if you want to influence future development of the parks and trails system.

Scappoose senior leadoff hitter Sam Margheim sparked Scappoose on offense. He was 3-for-3 with three stolen bases and scored two runs. Seniors Kyler Mizee and Anthony Bernal each drove in a run, doubled and singled. Senior Hunter Hoyt’s two-run double started Scappoose’s scoring in the top of the first inning. Senior Will Sprute and junior Owen Fortney combined for the win on the mound. Each pitcher

struck out five batters, walked one and allowed one earned run. Hoyt and junior Blake Millar combined on a five-hit shutout against the Roughriders. Neither pitcher walked a batter. Mizee paced the Indians at the plate, going 3-for-3 and driving in four runs. Mizee had an RBI double in the second inning and cleared the bases with a threerun double in the fourth.

Tribe controls Cowapa opener by kyle boggs

SCAPPOOSE — A single point was all that stood between the Scappoose Indians and a clean sweep of four dual competitions at a home meet on April 2. The Tribe boys won their meets against the Tillamook Cheesemakers (93-52) and the Seaside Seagulls (76-69). The SHS girls beat Tillamook, 85-50, and were a point away from beating Seaside. The Seagulls won, 73-72. Senior thrower Kenny Klippel and the Indians’ plethora of speedy sprinters piled up the points for the boys. Klippel won all three throwing events by wide margins. Klippel set new personal record marks in the shot put and the discus with winning distances of 44 feet, 1.5 inches and 143 feet even, respectively. Klippel’s javelin throw of 146-9 was about a foot-and-a-half better than the mark he recorded at the season-opening meet two weeks prior. In the three sprint events, the Indians recorded eight of the nine best times. Scappoose finished

1-2-3 in the 200 and 400. Seniors Nick Rust, Justice Oman and Matt Shoun were the first three across the line in the 200. In fact, had Scappoose been able to enter more than three runners in the event, the Tribe would have had the five fastest times. Sophomore Jarrett White and junior Scott Toenjes each posted faster times than the fourth-place finisher in the varsity race. In the 400, it was Oman, senior Mychal Hortert and sophomore Braden Clark taking the top three spots. Rust – who set a PR to win the 200 – also PRed in the 100 with a winning time of 11.7 seconds. Tillamook’s Wesley Stirk took second, and Shoun was third in 11.8 seconds. The Tribe really demonstrated its sprinting depth in the 4x100 relay, where the Indians finished first and second. Clark, Oman, Shoun and Rust won the event in a time of 44.21 seconds. Hortert, senior Kyle Nickel, Toenjes and White were second in 45.29 seconds. Junior Dan Carrier led the Tribe in the longer distances. He See tribe, Page A16

grasses will also damage our desirable lawn species as well, unless spot sprayed (or brushed on) very carefully only on the grass you want to kill. There are some herbicides that will control annual bluegrass seedlings but they have to be applied multiple times from fall until spring. Our OSU turf experts agree that annual bluegrass is virtually inevitable as a lawn invader and that fertilizing to give everything a deeper green color and cutting a bit higher (2-plus inches) is an option to reduce its vigor and favor the ryegrasses and fescues in your lawn mix. Fall overseeding will also help. But here is where it gets interesting. If you also have creeping bentgrass in your lawn, it responds to high cutting by forming spongy mats of aerial stems that look awful. Bentgrass looks best when cut close, say 1.5 inches at most. • I think aerating can benefit most of our lawns. But you need to wait until the soils are drier. Otherwise, the holes you create when the plugs are pulled will have compressed sides and may not have the air flow improvement that you intended. So be patient. • Craneflies can devastate a lawn but their populations rise and fall between years.

Kessi said the team caught four total fish, but had to release one salmon becuase it was a wild fish. Each team member won rod-and-reel packages valued at $500. Dave Belden won the Johnny’s title and will once again have his name etched onto the Sam Hernandez Award plaque at Johnny’s Bar and Grill. Belden’s 14.2-pound fish

Top doubles team 2-0 in NWOC St. Helens responds to 8-1 defeat to Sandy with 9-0 victory over Rex Putnam by kyle boggs

The St. Helens Lions had outstanding performances throughout the roster on April 7 in a 9-0 win over the Rex Putnam Kingsmen. The perfect score came on the heels of a tough 8-1 loss to the Sandy Pioneers on April 2. Against the Kingsmen, Lion coach Dave Geiger said singles players Alyssa Enyart and Kathleen Chiddick started the matck out with solid singles play. Their victories were followed by dominant showings in the Nos. 5, 4 and 3 doubles matches. Those wins secured the overall team victory with four matches still remaining. Hannah Spears and Amanda Pardue won their match in straight sets. “The newly-formed doubles team of Pardue and Spears continues to jell, dropping one game during their match,” Geiger said. Jo’Cee Giroski also won in straight sets, although she had to overcome a late challenge from her Putnam opponent. She won 6-0, 7-5. “Giroski displayed mental toughness by fighting off second-set jitters and secured a straight-set win,” Geiger said. Lauren Chambers won a challenging match, 7-6, 7-5. The Lions’ top doubles team of Madison Kaplan and Lexi Normine rebounded from a first-set loss to win their match 2-6, 7-5, 6-2. That duo had the team’s only win against the Pioneers. Their win against Sandy came in much the same fashion as their victory against Putnam: They lost the opening set 7-5, then won the next two 6-2, 6-4.

kyle boggs / The Chronicle St. Helens seniors Lexi Normine, front, and Madison Kaplan, back, have won each of their first two conference matches this season.

Earlier in the afternoon, Giroski lost a tough match in No. 2 singles. Her line score was 6-7, 6-4, 7-6. “Giroski lost a heartbreaker, dropping four match points at 5-6 in the third set before falling in the tiebreaker,” Geiger said. The Lions came close to wins in the Nos. 3 and 4 doubles matches as well.

The Pioneers won in three sets in the No. 3 match, and Sandy took two sets in tiebreakers in the No. 4 match. “Today was a tough opening dual against one of the teams favored to win the NWOC this year,” Geiger said. “Our focus was on winning one of the four singles matches and four of five doubles matches in

efforts to sneak a victory; however, fate was not with us today. The Lions battled well but could not finish the close matches.” St. Helens plays at Milwaukie High School at 4 p.m. on April 9. The Lions are at Liberty High School for a 4 p.m. match on April 11. St. Helens hosts Sherwood at 4 p.m. on April 14.

Lions fourth in 5A in runs allowed by kyle boggs

Pitching and defense have proven to be the backbone of this year’s St. Helens Lions baseball squad (2-5). While the Lions’ winloss record puts them fifth in the eight-team Northwest Oregon Conference, their runs allowed tells a different story. Through seven games, St. Helens has allowed only 29 runs (4.14 per game). Only three of the other 36 teams in 5A have allowed fewer runs per game: Summit (4-2) allows 2.17 runs per game, Madison (5-3) allows 3.5 runs per game, and Dallas (4-3) gives up 3.71 runs per game. St. Helens coach Jeff Timmons pointed out 11 of the 29 runs St. Helens has allowed came on a rainy, slippery day against Reynolds (7-3). That means the Lions need to improve at the

April 2, when pitchers Bryce Sanford and Bryce Mulcahy combined to allow only two base hits in a 3-0 loss to the Century Jaguars (6-3).

St. Helens had four hits of its own, but the Lions couldn’t put together more than one hit in an inning. The Jaguars loaded the bases without getting a base hit in the second inning, then scored on a single, bases-loaded walk and a sacrifice fly. Senior Josh Keller, sophomore Beau Mason, junior Brody Takemoto and senior Tyler Stangland all singled for the Lions. The Lions start the Northwest Oregon Conference season this week. St. Helens was at Sandy (3-5) on April 8 and will host the Pioneers at 4:30 p.m. on April 9. The Lions are at home again on April 11 for a 4:30 p.m. game against the Parkrose Broncos (1-5).

WILSONVILLE — A school record outing from the Sherwood Bowmen separated them from the rest of the field during an April 2 Northwest Oregon Conference golf tournament at Langon Farms Golf Club. The Bowmen won the event with a four-person score of 291. St. Helens was third with a score of 340, with Wilsonville taking second with a score of 324 on the Wildcats’ home course. St. Helens senior Eric Aldridge finished seventh overall with a final score of 80. Sherwood had the top three individuals. Joe Reed shot 68; Gabe Reed and Keegan Brasch both scored 72 on the par-71 course. “Langdon Farms has a difficult first hole and some very hard finishing holes; unfortunately those holes were our nemesis,” said St.

Helens coach Dave Lawrence. “Eric avoided the big numbers on those holes and with a couple of birdies was seventh overall.” Junior Jacob Roxey, senior Cody Teyema and junior Michael Hewlett gave the Lions four scores in the 80s. Roxey shot 84, Teyema finished with 87 and Heweltt scored 89. Lawrence said each of those players had a few double or triple bogeys but were able to offset those rough holes with some birdies sprinkled in. The boys go to Glendoveer Golf Course on April 9 for another NWOC tournament. This one is set to tee off at noon. They play again at noon on April 14 at Chehalem Glenn. – By Kyle Boggs

Cave close to chip-in PORTLAND — St. Helens junior golfer Leah Cave scored 23 points using the modified Stableford scoring system at Broadmoor Golf Course on April 1. Cave was the only Lion golfer competing in the Northwest Oregon Conference varsity competition. Liberty had the top two finishers in the tournament. Stephanie Miller won with 60 points and McKenzie Oster scored 58. Cave nearly chipped in a birdie on the 15th hole.

“I hit a nice shot on the left side of the fairway. Then I hit my 4/5 hybrid onto the front of the fringe, almost on the green,” Cave said. Her nine-iron chip rolled just past the pin and she sunk a three-foot putt for par. Lion freshmen Alexis Kooyman and Ashley Perry played in the JV match for St. Helens. St. Helens’ next match is on April 15 at Chehalem Glenn in Newberg. – By Kyle Boggs

Lawrence 2nd on D-III, George Fox 800 lists PALO ALTO, Calif. — Will Lawrence won his heat of the 800 meters at the 2014 Stanford Invitational on April 5. Overall, Lawrence finished 33rd out of 83 runners with a time of 1:52.05. The 2012 St. Helens High School graduate’s time is the second fastest among D-III men this season. Johns Hopkins University’s Andrew Carey has the best time of

the year at 1:50.95. His time also places him second all time on the George Fox University list. Todd Bos holds the school record of 1:50.00, set in 1990. In December, Lawrence broke Bos’ indoor record in the 800. Lawrence, a sophomore at D-III George Fox, was competing against mostly Division-I athletes at Stanford.

SHERWOOD — The Sherwood Bowmen won both the boys and girls competitions at the first Northwest Oregon Conference track meet of the season on April 2. The Sherwood boys won a close dual against St. Helens, 81-64. On the girls side, a much larger Bowmen girls team beat the Lions 11431. St. Helens coach Gerry Tinkle said Sherwood has at least two times as many girls on its track team as St. Helens does. Tinkle found some encouraging areas on the afternoon, but said spring break seemed to slow down his team. He pointed out that some of the times from the squad’s first meet of the season in Scappoose were faster than those in Sherwood. “We had some good performances, but it was not even close to what we needed to be competitive,” Tinkle said.

The boys were most successful in the throwing events, where they finished first and second in all three events. Senior Jacob Zartman won the shot put with a toss of 47-5.5. Senior Corey West won the discus with a throw of 126-0. In the javelin, the competition boiled down to whether the St. Helens JV entries would win or whether the varsity entries would win. Sherwood didn’t stand a chance. The Lions’ top three varsity throwers were junior
