St. Helens man charged with attempted murder, kidnapping SCAPPOOSE — A resident called 9-1-1 late Sunday night on May 12 to report a disturbance where a man was seen running his vehicle into a female. Micah Bills This occurred on Wikstrom Road near Highway 30 in the Scappoose area. The male was seen leaving the scene in a vehicle, leaving behind an injured female. After further investigation, Micah Leroy Bills, 32, a registered sex offender, was arrested and is being held in the Columbia County Jail on $54,000 bail. Bills was charged with attempted murder; two counts of first-degree kidnapping; fourth-degree assault; three counts of first-degree attempted assault; first-degree attempted rape; coercion; menacing; four counts of unlawful use of a weapon; and delivery and possession of cocaine. The adult female victim, who has not been identified, was transported to a Portlandarea hospital. Specific details about her injuries will not be released but appear to nonlife-threatening. Preliminary information indicates the victim, who is younger than Bills, met the suspect early Sunday evening while fishing in the Scappoose Dike area. It is not believed that they knew each other prior to that time. Deputies are continuing their investigation. Bills’ sex offender status comes from a 2007 felony conviction for first-degree attemped sex abuse.

Kinder Morgan derails plans for Port Westward Announcement to have little impact on Port, Ambre Energy

BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Kinder Morgan officials announced on May 8 at both the Port of St. Helens board and Columbia County Commissioners meetings that the company has abandoned its plans to build a rail-based coal export terminal at Port Westward. “We made a determination this week that it’s not going to work and we’re not going to pursue the project,” said Kinder Morgan Public Affairs Director Allen Fore during the commissioners’ meeting.

This is not about the commodity, its about the siting.” Allen Fore Kinder Morgan Public Affairs Director

Fore said the company did a substantial amount of preliminary work before coming to that decision. “We’ve been – for the past 15 months – pursuing a due diligence process for a site for a potential coal export terminal at Port Westward Industrial Park. This due diligence

process is something Kinder Morgan does all the time,” he said. “We take great pains to make sure that you meet the first step in making sure a project has the potential for success. On this project we have not filed for a single permit. We have not got to this step yet.”

While the project hasn’t been without its detractors, there are many in the county who were in favor if the project, and were especially supportive of the jobs Kinder Morgan would have brought with it. “Is it disappointing? Sure, because there was a real opportunity here for some significant investment in the county, significant tax revenue and some high paying, living wage jobs. But there are starts and stops all the time with big projects, said Patrick Trapp, executive director for the Port. “But it has put St. Helens on the map ­­­­ See COAL, Page A3

ST. HELENS — Automotive, manufacturing and welding programs at St. Helens High School have taken center stage recently. All three programs – two of which benefit high school students, while another is geared toward Portland Community College students – have been the recipients of some good news.

Automotive For the 12th consecutive year, SHHS student technicians from the advanced Automotive Technology program – Mike’s Automotive – have proven themselves to be among the best of the best by qualifying for the prestigious Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills competition. This contest, sponsored jointly by

Ford Motor Company and the American Automobile Association, encourages excellence in the field of automotive service. A team of 20 junior and senior students from St. Helens recently competed against other student technicians from across the state in a challenging, computer-

based test of their automotive knowledge. They took one of only 10 statewide spots moving on to the next level of competition. Their success comes on the heels of last year’s Oregon State Champions Keagan Mays and Bryce Clarke. Mays and Clarke, along with instructor Mike

Herdrich, traveled at Ford and AAA’s expense to Ford Motor Company’s World Headquarters in Dearborn, Mich., to represent Oregon in the national troubleshooting contest. On May 9 and 10, Karl Reiniger and Cody Brooke ­­­­ See SCHOOL, Page A4

Sheriff’s Office releases early details of officer-involved shooting MORE ONLINE

BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

A press conference held by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office on May 8 provided preliminary details surrounding the fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred in Warren Josiah M. Fischer on May 3. But it also left many questions unanswered. A full investigation into the shooting – in which nine shots were fired following a pursuit that reached speeds in excess of 100 mph – is being conducted by the Columbia County Major Crimes team in accordance with the county’s deadly physical force plan.

“Anytime law enforcement uses deadly force in the course of its duties, the people have a right to know as soon as possible what happened in general to bring us to the point where we are today–where one of our citizens is dead after a confrontation with law enforcement officers in our county,” said Sheriff Jeff Dickerson. Undersheriff Andy Moyer – reading from a prepared statement – said OSP troopers Justin Oxenrider shot and killed Josiah M. Fischer, 27, of St. Helens, after Fischer reportedly led Oxenrider and fellow OSP Trooper Robin May on a pursuit down Highway 30 before ultimately coming to its fatal end near Hazen and Stone roads.

OSP Trooper Justin Oxenrider used his patrol car to push a suspect vehicle into a ditch following a high-speed pursuit.

“The investigation is not complete, but the information that is being released are factual events,” said Moyer. According to the Sheriff’s Office’s investigation, Oxenrider initially attempted to stop the driver of a black sedan, later identified as Fischer, after

clocking the car going 78 mph in a 55 mph speed zone in the area of Highway 30 and Wikstrom Road. “Trooper Oxenrider notified his dispatch that he was in pursuit of

Port commissioner candidate ready for race BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Ballots for the upcoming May 21 elections have already been mailed out and most voters should have them in hand by now. One of the most talked about races this election cycle is the bid for port commissioner at the Port of St. Helens. Last week, The Chronicle introduced our readers to the two candidates for Port of St. Helens commissioner position no. 4, Terry Luttrell and Michael Clarke. Although current Port Commissioner Chris Iverson is running unopposed for commissioner position no. 5, we asked him to provide the same information and

answer the same questions as the other candidates.

Chris Iverson I am a lifelong resident of Columbia County. I have been married 25 years this July and have two children. I have worked at and owned a small insurance agency for 20 years Chris Iverson [Insurance Services Northwest] in St Helens. I am a past city councilman for the City of St. Helens and I have served on the boards of the Colum-

bia Center, and the Columbia Community Mental Health board. I am a past president of the local Rotary Club and I also serve on the oral review board for the St Helens Police Department. I attend Grace Baptist Church.

Q: What will your number one priority be as a Port Commissioner? A: My number one priority is jobs. Q: What will you do to bring jobs to Columbia County? A: I have participated actively in enticing business to come to our county. I have helped provide staff the necessary tools it needs to attract new business. I work with my fellow commission-

ers to get good, family wage jobs in Columbia County.

Q: Do you support or oppose the coal export terminal projects? Why? A: There are two coal projects looking at Port Westward. I voted to support the Ambre (barge) project and I also voted to allow Kinder Morgan (the rail project) to do its due diligence to see if it was a fit for Columbia County. The reason I voted for these was to get jobs in Columbia County. If these projects go it would mean 80 to 240 jobs. The average wage would be about $80,000 per year. It would also mean approximately $3.5 to $4.5 million in tax revenue to our county.

I have visited two coal exporting facilities; one in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the other in New Port News, Virginia. I found no evidence of coal dust, people with respiratory problems or any of the other evils the opponents keep talking about. I stopped at houses along the railroad tracks and spoke to people that had lived next to the tracks for years and they said they had no issues with coal dust. I spoke to business owners whose businesses were next door to the coal exporting facility and they also said they had no issues with the coal. I am not excited about waiting for trains but I am willing to sacrifice a little of my time to bring much needed jobs to this county.

COAL: logistics more of a reason for pulling out than recent protests From PAGE A1

in regards to other people that understand what we have available here.” Since the Port of St. Helens announced it was considering a lease option agreement with Kinder Morgan in mid-2011, several groups including Columbia Riverkeepers, the Sierra Club and local grassroots campaigns like Clean Columbia County have been drawing attention to the environmental impacts associated with coal transport. Many also expressed concerns about possible safety impacts that would be created by trains over a mile long traveling though cities in Columbia County. Those groups have been putting pressure on local elected officials, state leaders and environmental agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency and Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality to conduct in depth studies on the coal projects. However, Kinder Morgan said its decision had more to do with logistics than protests. “This is not about the commodity. It’s about siting. We needed to be sure we could site a facility at the location. Then we would have proceeded with

our permits. Then the process begins,” said Fore. With opposition to coal projects in Oregon continuing to grow, Kinder Morgan’s announcement wasn’t entirely unexpected. “Frankly, it didn’t surprise me. On the day that PGE announced they were not interested in a sublease on the property they have leased from the Port of St. Helens, I did not see that project coming to fruition,” said Columbia County Commissioner Tony Hyde. “But I still think it’s very important to look at creating any and all sites that are available to us in Columbia County.” The Port of St. Helens, which has applied to the county’s planning department to have more than 950 acres of agricultural property at Port Westward rezoned for industrial use, says its request does just that. “We certainly hope the rezoning [application] accompanies a plan change because we’ve said all along we’re not doing this for coal. We’re doing this to attract appropriate businesses to take advantage of the property we already have,” said Trapp.

While Kinder Morgan officials expressed disappointment this project did not work out, the possibility of working with the Port of St. Helens sometime in the future has not been ruled out. The company also restated its commitment to other projects already built or in development in other parts of the state. Although Kinder Morgan may now be out of contention, Australia-based Ambre Energy is continuing to move forward with its plans to build a coal export terminal at Port Westward. Unlike Kinder Morgan, which would have transported coal but would not own the mines the coal originated from, Ambre owns its coal mines in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin. “I think the only impact it will have on us is a little more clarity. The two projects are very different,” said Ambre Energy spokesperson Brian Gard. “In our case, we’re barging from Port of Morrow to Port Westward…we’re still moving forward, our permits are still in process. We’re optimistic and still committed and still very appreciative of how the Port of St. Helens has worked with us.”

the black sedan. The suspect vehicle continued to drive at speeds in excess of 100 mph on Highway 30,” said Moyer, adding Oxenrider had his emergency lights and siren on. After the sedan turned onto Millard Road, OSP Trooper Robin May joined the pursuit on Bennett Road. Oxenrider then performed a “Tactical Vehicle Intervention, known as a PIT maneuver in other law enforcement agencies, which forced the sedan into a ditch. CCSO records indicate Oxenrider then exited his patrol vehicle, moved around the rear of the suspect car and gave repeated verbal commands to the suspect to show his hands, which was confirmed by the audio portion of his in-car video system. “The suspect produced a firearm. The firearm–which was recovered Friday night at the scene–is a black, Ruger, .22-caliber, semi-automatic pistol. Later examination by detectives revealed that the firearm was loaded with a round in the chamber and had additional rounds in the magazine,” said Moyer. With the investigation still ongoing, authorities would not say how Fischer “produced” the weapon or whether the trooper knew who the suspect in the car was at that time. Fischer had a 2008 felony conviction for first-degree theft. “After seeing the firearm, Trooper Oxenrider fired his .40-caliber S&W service weapon at the suspect. It was later determined that Trooper Oxenrider fired a total of nine rounds,” added Moyer. At 6:44 p.m. Trooper May announced on her radio that shots had been fired. Trooper May did not fire any shots during the incident.” Both troopers and two St. Helens Police officers who had arrived at the scene called for a LifeFlight helicopter and provided first aid to Fischer while waiting for paramedics to arrive. However, Fischer was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. “While it is important to get the information out as quickly as possible, It is also important to give investigators and the district attorney the time they need to put together a clear, ac-

challenged nine other teams of automotive tech “Top Guns” at Mt. Hood Community College to see which team was first to diagnose and correct all of the faults purposefully placed in 10 identically bugged 2013 Ford Focus SE automobiles. The pair took fourth place. “We were working after school just about every day,” said Brooke. “And we got help from Dino at St. Helens Auto Center, who lent us the car,” added Reiniger “So we had the opportunity to go through and look at everything.” St. Helens Auto Center loaned the automotive students a brand new Ford Focus to help hone their skills in preparation for the contest. Both students plan to pursue further automotive skills studies. The St. Helens students have worked closely with AAA before, having gained recognition as the first and only high school automotive shop in Oregon to be awarded AAA-authorized repair facility status. This certification was based on a thorough evaluation of the program facilities, level of training and commitment to teaching ethical business practices.

Manufacturing The manufacturing program at St. Helens High School received a major donation of equipment and services from three local businesses. The companies – and their representatives – were recognized at an appreciation ceremony at the high school on May 1. Astro Tool Corporation, Omega Morgan, and American Precision Industries were all thanked for their collective support at the event, and for what the school says is an excellent example of community partnership that will enhance the industry-related skills training for Career and Technical Education students in the manufacturing program. “We searched the web for months without any luck to

challenge of moving all of this very heavy equipment. Omega Morgan, a company that handles a wide array of industrial moving jobs, came to the rescue. The company picked up the lathes in Beaverton and delivered them safely to the St. Helens machine shop. Adams said the new equipment has had a definite impact on students. “They are more productive and efficient. They’re able to work on more ambitious projects, and the students are taking pride and ownership in the equipment,” she said.

Welding Portland Community College now offers welding classes during afternoons and evenings at the high school. “The need for certified welders in the Portland area is very strong right now,” said Scott Judy, PCC welding department chair. “Depending on the skill of the student, he or she can become certified after one term which is three months. We have welding companies who call us routinely looking for certified welders and that was the case throughout the recession.” PCC Rock Creek offers eight certificate programs and a two-year associate degree in welding. According the regional community college, certified welders are very much in demand by companies that specialize in ship and barge work, work on oilrigs and metal recycling. Currently, none of the students enrolled in the class are high school students.

Jeff van Raden, managing director of Columbia Industries, a Hillsboro-based company building customized drilling rigs, automated pipe handling machines and ancillary equipment, recognized PCC’s welding program. “I just hired five welders from PCC,” he said. “The college is providing a critical service for a fast-moving industry. Over the last 10 years, one-third of all welders have retired. That’s a 30 percent drop in the number of qualified, trained welders.” In the past two years, the company has grown from 60 employees to 180 in fabrication and welding, creating what van Raden says is a need for a “steady stream” of qualified welders. ““I think the PCC welding class in St. Helens is a great opportunity for people from that community and Columbia Industries is currently looking at some type of partnership with PCC Rock Creek. The demand for welders is likely to increase,” van Raden said. The St. Helens welding class will not be offered during the summer but it will return in the fall. “With a welding certificate in hand,” said Scott Judy, “a welder can expect a beginning salary of approximately $15 an hour with an increase to $20 an hour with two years of experience. And the demand is there.” Anyone wanting more information about welding classes in St. Helens should contact Judy at sjudy@pcc. edu.




ST. HELENS — Proud family members and friends gathered to celebrate with 35 seventh- and eighth-grade students from St. Helens Middle School selected for membership in the National Junior Honor Society. The students demonstrated excellence in scholarship, character, citizenship, leadership, and service. Chapter membership recognizes students for their academic accomplishments and challenges them to develop further through active involvement in school activities and community service. By year’s end 300-plus service hours are expected to be logged by members; service activities such as supporting youth sports by caretaking for fields, attending leadership conferences, fundraising for the school library and other school programs, volunteering for community meals and various community events, church projects, and more.

find used equipment that we could afford,” said SHHS manufacturing teacher Bonnie Adams. All of that changed when automotive skills teacher Mike Herdich turned to American Precision Industries engineer Jon Warren. Both Herdrich and Warren are part of the PACTEC (Portland Area Career Technical Education Consortium) regional leadership team. Warren, in turn, was able to use his business connections to find the Beavertonbased Astro Tool Corporation, which was interested in donating some of its precision machining equipment. “This was more than we ever could have hoped for,” Adams said. “And this is just the beginning. With this new lathe and more working equipment made possible by this support from our business community we can develop new lesson plans and training that greatly enhance student learning and skills.” Adams, the school’s interim manufacturing teacher and the event’s host, underlined the importance of this example of business and community participation. “We didn’t have enough money to buy even one lathe. With this combined gift, we were able to buy parts and tools that dramatically improved the other equipment in our shop.” Astro Tool Corporation donated another precision lathe, with future plans of adding an industrial milling machine and surface grinder. Along with the equipment donations came the

Letters Clarke has vote Several months ago, Mike Clarke filed to run for election for Commissioner Position No. 4 on the Port of St. Helens. Over the next several months, we have gotten to know Mike. He is a long term resident and businessman with deep roots in Columbia County. We have visited with him about his expectations for his role on the Port Commission, should he be elected, and the challenges he feels the Port faces. Mike wants to improve the Port’s communications with all the residents of north and south Columbia County. He is concerned about a distinct lack of transparency in the recent decision-making process the Port has used, especially around the coal train proposals. He will work to change that culture within the Port. He will also work to develop a long-term economic strategy that won’t degrade the economy and quality of life in any part of the Port’s territory but will seek improve the economic vitality in all areas served by the Port. We have found Mike Clarke to be thoughtful, a good listener, and supplied with energy and the common sense analytical skills that will serve us well as a Port commissioner. He will make a difference. Mike Clarke has our vote. Chip and Nancy Bubl, Warren Deny zoning request The Port of St. Helens is currently requesting rezoning of land adjacent to Port Westward, and the Columbia County Planning Commission will make its decision on the rezoning following the close of the May 20 hearing continuation. The rezoning of 957 acres adjacent to Port Westward that will more than double the present size, will significantly and negatively affect the city of Rainier regardless of the industry locating there, if it increases rail traffic. From the proposed Port Westward expansion we foresee Rainier property values continuing to drop, existing Rainier businesses failing and/ or leaving, and family wage incomes going elsewhere. This rezoning hasn’t been





properly examined. The Columbia County Planning Commission has not asked many of the hard questions. There has been no adequate analysis of rail and truck traffic to assess how more traffic will affect Rainier. What number of trains, unit and short, is sustainable without dire consequences? What will be the long term effect on A Street businesses of increased rail traffic to and from Port Westward? What will be the effect on the city’s infrastructure? What will be the effect on public safety (an accident waiting to happen)? An adequate traffic impact analysis should also address the fact that the Portland to Astoria rail line was never intended to carry heavy unit train traffic. The last ODOT analysis in 2009 indicated that three unit trains and five or six log and lumber trains a week would be compatible with the area. What amount of rail upgrading and expansion must occur in Rainier, how will that affect the life of the community, and how will modifications be paid for? It is my understanding that the Port already has several hundred acres of industrial land space at Port Westward not being used at present. Why can’t the Port plan to site small industries there that would not entail use of unit trains or an increase in regular train traffic? Such a strategy would also have the advantage of not driving out family farm operations that are currently having some success adjacent to the Port. In conclusion, I strongly urge all interested to urge the Columbia County Planning Commission to deny the Port’s rezoning request. Steven Massey, Rainier

tons of coal and coal dust per train trip.... this is a fact stated by the railroad. All the other arguments for and against the coal trains are meaningless compared to this fact. No coal trains through Columbia County! Ask your commissioners and representatives and city council to say no. Brenda Flori, St. Helens Call for transparency Outside anonymous big money interests are trying to buy the port election by sending two large-scale political flyers to thousands of voters in Columbia County in support of Terry Luttrell. This is our county and this election is not only about transparency, it is now also about outside anonymous interests trying to buy our elections with no concern for the people’s right to choose their own government. Mr. Luttrell has not set up a campaign fund or disclosed who are the anonymous contributors. Send a message to Terry Luttrell that this is our county and vote for Michael Clarke and transparency. Jamie Kramer, Warren It took a village to stop a coal train It was standing room only in the Circuit Courtroom at the rezoning hearing on May 6. Wow, ninety percent or more opposing the zone change! Actions by the City of Rainier and the City of Scappoose reflect those communities’ serious concerns about facing mile-long unit trains several times a day carrying coal to Clatskanie – kudos to those grassroots rumblings. I find it hard to believe that Kinder Morgan would have walked away from their pick of 1,000 acres and a new deepwater dock site if hundreds of us hadn’t stepped up to fight their proposed coal terminal, including the conversion of all that farmland and Thompson Island to industrial use. But while KM is now “sidetracked,” the unit train nightmare will rear its head again if the county finally approves the rezoning anyway and the Port offers all that land to another

Facts are all that matter If you have been following the coal train debate, there is only one fact we the people need to recognize. BNSF [Burlington Northern Santa Fe] stated in the April 3 Chronicle that “each railcar loses an average of 500 pounds of coal dust per trip.” The article goes on to say there are approximately 120-125 rail cars per coal train which means an average of 30

greedy export company dependent on rail. The Port board did it for KM and coal and could very well do it again for another industrial client. Stop the Port Westward expansion and its associated transportation gridlock in our county by voicing your concerns at the continued rezoning hearing on May 20 at the Columbia County Courthouse in St. Helens at 6:30 p.m. See you there. And help steer the Port to more transparent dealings and more human-friendly economic development by voting for Mike Clarke for Port Position No. 4. Darrel Whipple, Rainier

a whole new understanding. Those of today think it’s to march like we see insects do (flying ants, termites and such) a mob by design destroy others holdings. I know May 1 has passed now but I just had to say this after those scenes in Seattle last week. In the days of old, dancing around a Maypole was the thing. This Maypole idea came from a time, a part from Babylon. Also a part from the Druid period this was to celebrate unwed ladies in spring. In some parts of England, mothers of the manner would dress-up their young ladies, parading them around this pole. A way to signify they were old enough for dating. The May Day was to show a new way, and in it’s infancy a pagan way, to show budding youth. As in my time, a child would make paper baskets in school then on our way home

Days of old How lifestyles make changes over the years from what once was. The thought behind May Day today makes

stop off filling it with picked dandelions or other flowers. As I got older it was my policies to hand pick my mother some wild flowers for the first day of May. It had become expected of me to do this as once I missed a May Day and received a phone call asking where her flowers were. This May Day, I had my great grandson do this for his Momma. At first he didn’t show much interest but when she came he was very happy he could do this for Mom. My-oh-my, how I like the good part of a grand time. After seeing the joy from the boy and his mom it would be neat to see the May Day paper baskets come back. But there is still mother’s day and we can just give the Moms in our lives that big “O” hug. Dean D. Ebert, St. Helens

Guest Editorial

Cities are due consideration in coal train debate At the Monday April 15, 2013, Scappoose City Council meeting, Paula Miranda, a representative of the Port of St. Helens, argued that the City of Scappoose should not request research to find out the impacts of up to 1,440 coal rail cars passing through Scappoose because the Port is not certain if the coal rail deal will be finalized. Apparently, the Port believes that gathering information before entering a final deal that would change life in

Columbia County as we know it is unnecessary because any research would be premature. Coal unit trains include about 120 railcars, about 1 1/3 miles long, and could cause huge negative transportation, emergency access, quality of life, property value, and business impacts. The Port representative failed to tell the city about its 35-page option contract with Kinder Morgan entered into January 2012 where the Port has received about $140,000, or

the fact that the option expires in a few months. Instead, the Port advised the city that there is no deal yet, the Port is not sure a final deal will go through, and any research at this point would be premature. The Port’s representative also explained that a 2009 rail transportation safety study designed for four unit trains per week was good enough research to justify the possible 40–50 unit trains that the Port’s current bulk oil and

research is necessary. It is never premature to gather information, especially about a topic that will change life in Columbia County as we know it. The Port has revealed that it is adamantly against gathering information, therefore, the City must act fast to voice its concern that research must be done. If the Kinder Morgan deal is finalized, it may be too late for the City, its people, and its businesses to speak up. The Port representative

also failed to mention that in the Kinder Morgan contract, the Port is entitled to a road overpass or underpass on Port property at Kinder Morgan’s expense if it is deemed necessary. I believe the cities of Columbia County are due the same consideration and we need research to see if the semi-automated bulk coalby-rail deal is good for the county and not just the Port.

coal deals could generate. Scott Burge, Mayor of Scappoose, stood up for the people and businesses of Scappoose and corrected the Port’s representative. Mayor Burge pointed out that a study designed for three to four unit trains is not the same as a study showing that forty or more trains is equally acceptable.

Oregon vaccine-exempted kindergartners rate increases Military News The Oregon Immunization Program recently released its 2013 rates of Oregon kindergartners who have cited non-medical (religious) exemption from one or more required vaccines, showing the rate of exemptions has increased to an all-time high of 6.4 percent. National data showed that in 2012, Oregon had the highest rate of non-medical exemptions from immunizations for kindergartners. Data collected from 2013’s Exclusion Day saw increases in non-medical exemption rates in 26 county entities, including Columbia County. Other counties included were Clackamas, Clatsop, Multnomah and Tillamook, to name a few. In 2013, rates also showed that 17 counties have now surpassed the common 6 percent threshold in which “herd” or community immunity may be compromised for some vaccinepreventable diseases such as pertussis and measles.

“This is troubling news,” said pediatrician Dr. Jay Rosenbloom. Rosenbloom leads the Oregonians For Healthy Children effort to create new policy under Senate Bill 132, which seeks to curtail non-medical vaccine exemptions in for school-age and daycare-age children. “Our work to help parents become better informed, which is a provision is in

Senate Bill 132, is needed now more than ever,” said Rosenbloom. The 2013 rate increase appears to underscore the same concerns raised after the 2012 rates were announced. Oregon schools had the highest rate of nonmedical vaccine exemptions for students of kindergarten age in 2012, which also saw the highest rates for pertussis (whooping cough) cases

in the U.S. Washington and Oregon also had higher incident rates than in previous years, and Oregon continues the climb in 2013. Under SB 132, parents will be able to claim exemption for any reason, including but not limited to religious, personal or philosophical reasons. Current law requires children enrolled in child care and school to submit a form verifying they have received required vaccines. Parents who choose not to vaccinate their children currently submit a form stating their exemption. Washington passed similar legislation in 2011 resulting in a 25 percent decrease in immunization exemptions.

Sally Norbom Sally (Sarah) Norbom passed away quietly at the OHSU Medical Center on May 10. Her husband, three children, daughterin-law and grandson were present to give Sally Norbom

her comfort. Her death was caused by pulmonary fibrosis, an autoimmune disease for which there is no known cause or cure. Sally was born on Aug. 25, 1940, and raised in Oil City, Pa. While attending Oil City High School she worked part-time at the theater’s concession stand and participated in several school clubs and groups. She graduated on the honor roll in 1958. Following graduation she enrolled in the nursing program at Oil City Hospital, and received her RN license in l961. In the fall of 1961 she moved to San Francisco to marry her junior high sweetheart, Lowell Norbom, who was stationed there in the U.S. Navy. During Lowell’s 20-year Navy career Sally lived in San Francisco, Morocco, Seattle, San Diego, Long Beach, Calif., Portland and Alameda, Calif., in that order. Sally left nursing after the birth of her first child, choosing to be a full-time wife and mother instead. She always volunteered at her children’s schools. When her third, and last, child turned 13 she went back to college to study bookkeeping, and then took a part time job as an accounting bookkeeper. When her husband retired from the Navy in 1980 they returned to Portland. Sally worked full time as an accounting bookkeeper, continued volunteer work, and became a foster mother for teenage girls for the next 10 years. In 1995 they moved to Deer Island. In 2000 Sally retired, and increased her volunteer activities. The following are some of the volunteer activities she participated in: 1.) Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) both as a volunteer worker and as a member of the board; 2.) member of the St. Helens School Board; 3.) small claims mediator; 4.) working the reception desk at the Columbia County Courthouse and organizing and scheduling the other volunteers; 5.) accounting work for CC Rider; 6.) board member for the Commission on Children and Families; 7.) tutoring advanced math to Talented and Gifted students at Lewis and Clark Elementary School; 8.) she organized a program for the Queen and Princesses of the My Fair Lady Pageant to visit senior centers, and attended the programs at the senior centers to facilitate the activity. She felt that all the contestants in the My Fair Lady Pageant, because of their knowledge, experience and community

involvement, had knowledge and experience, as well as enthusiasm for serving others, had valuable information to pass on to others. She also hoped that listening to these women, who had been selected by their peers for their volunteer service, might encourage others to volunteer as well. She felt strongly that volunteers helped strengthen and improve the community. She organized this program to allow them to do so. Sally was often recognized for her volunteer activities at local meetings and dinners that she attended. She was crowned Queen at the 2009 My Fair Lady Pageant. She received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Columbia County Commissioners in 2009 and she received the Oregon Governor’s Volunteer Award on Sept. 12, 2008. Sally was recognized by The Chronicle on Jan 2, 2013, in an article titled Columbia County’s 10 Best. A quote she gave the newspaper reporter is revealing of her spirit and attitude. “I don’t want to leave this world knowing I didn’t give back. I don’t want to take, to be a user. I’m a giver and I enjoy it. Plus, I don’t have the right to complain about the lack of services if I’m not willing to give something,” she said. In August 2012 increasing shortness of breath caused Sally to seek medical attention. She learned that she had pulmonary fibrosis. At that time she reluctantly decided to pass her volunteer duties on to others so that she could spend the time she had left with her family, which included her two small dogs, Skeeter and Dusty. Sally is survived by Lowell, her husband of 51 years; son Michael Norbom of Happy Valley; daughter Susan Dernbach of Bend; daughter Teresa Norbom of Deer Island; brother Charles Dolby of Oil City, Pa., and sister Nancy Cowan of Portland. And, not to be forgotten, her two little dogs, Skeeter and Dusty. Sally’s many friends will not be surprised to learn that Sally accepted the diagnosis of a fatal disease in the same way she lived her life: with courage and dignity, and without complaint. Steven Wesley Coy Steven Wesley Coy, having courageously fought cancer, passed away on May 1, 2013, at the age of 57. Steven was born and raised in St. Helens and retired as an electrician from IBEW Local 48. Those left to treasure his

memories are his wife Nidia; son Gabriel, age 32; daughter Elizabeth, age 28; mother Joy Brien; father William; brothers Michael and Christopher, along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. Steven was preceded in death by his younger sister, Karen. Steven was well known for his easygoing nature. While quiet in demeanor, his smile could never be forgotten. Steven enjoyed his time at home and loved his coffee and working in his garden. He will be greatly missed but the world is a better place having had him in it. A celebration of life for Steven will be held at Foursquare Church, 555 Commons Drive, in St. Helens (behind the DMV) at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 18. Caesar J. Crosta Caesar J. Crosta was born April 22, 1916, in St. Helens, the son of Domenico Rocco and Rosalia (Boschi) Crosta who immigrated to the U.S. from Italy in 1904. Family history has it that he was born Caesar Crosta Julius Caesar Crosta, but at some point it was switched to Caesar Julius. He had two brothers, older brother Giovanni “John” Defendente and younger brother, George Mario. Caesar grew up during the Great Depression on the family ranch in Yankton. Besides working on the ranch he held many jobs to help make ends meet. He worked for St. Helens Pulp and Paper, worked with the Civilian Conservation Corps in the Columbia River Gorge, was a camp cook in a logging camp in Zig Zag, was a bouncer in a bar (his favorite job, he once said), and carried mail between St. Helens and Vernonia. During World War II he moved to Seattle, working at Boeing building bombers. It was at Boeing that he met Betty Baker, his wife to be. After the war he moved back home to St. Helens. Caesar and Betty were married in 1947 and they lived in St. Helens for 25 years. They had one daughter, Victoria, born in 1950. In the late ‘40s and early

Gwendolyn Mary Asburry Gwendolyn Mary Asburry, 98, formerly of St. Helens, passed away on Thursday May 9, 2013, in Hillsboro. A graveside service was held Gwendolyn Asburry at Belle Passi Cemetery in Woodburn. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, May 21, at 2 p.m., at Plymouth Presbyterian Church on Sykes Road, in St. Helens. Gwendolyn was born on Nov. 26, 1914, in Monitor, Ore. She was one of three girls born to Sidney S. and Eva Rosina (Spear) Strike. Gwendolyn moved with her family as a child to Woodburn. She was raised and received her education in Woodburn, attended Woodburn High School and graduated with the Class of 1933. She met her future husband, Kenneth Asburry, through mutual friends. They soon began dating and were married on Sept. 15, 1933, in Woodburn. Following their marriage they moved to Eugene, where Kenneth finished his music degree at the University of Oregon. They lived in Woodburn and Scappoose. In 1941 they moved to St. Helens. Kenneth died in 1995 and Gwendolyn continued to live in St. Helens until 2006 when she moved to Hillsboro to be closer to her family. Gwendolyn was a devoted mother and wife to her family. She was also a farmer’s wife and worked on the family farm in St Helens helping with the yearly strawberry crops and the various farm animals. She also enjoyed gardening. She welcomed her family to gather at her home during the holidays and was close to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, a sister May Irene Hill and her parents. Survivors include her two children and son-in-law Kenneth R. Asburry Jr. of Portland, and Irene and Robert Barnes of Hillsboro; sister Marie Bentaas of Vancouver, Wash.; five grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Services were provided by Duyck and VanDeHey Funeral Home. Sign the online guestbook at

SHHS is third at districts BEAVERTON — Haley MannMiller reached the quarterfinals and the St. Helens Lions ruled the consolation bracket en route to a thirdplace finish at the 2013 Northwest Oregon Conference district championship meet. The showing was the Lions’ best during their time in the conference. “With only five seniors, we are in very good shape for next year to make a run at the league title,” said St. Helens coach Mike Gregor. One of those seniors, MannMiller, earned second-team All League by reaching the quarters. She was the No. 3 seed in the tournament and won her first match in convincing fashion, 6-1, 6-2. Her second match was more difficult, but Mann-Miller won 4-6, 6-3, 105. A 6-2, 6-3 defeat to Sherwood’s Allison Schwarm in the quarterfinals ended Mann-Miller’s run. Gregor pointed out that after winning her first match, Lauren Chambers had the most success against the eventual NWOC champion than anyone else. Chambers lost in the second round, 6-2, 6-1, to Wilsonville’s Haley Moss. Moss dropped only four sets total in her other four sets. “Moss cruised to the singles title and should be a contender at the state event,” Gregor said. “Lauren won more games off Moss than any other opponent.” Junior Madison Kaplan dropped a long first match, falling 5-7, 7-5, 10-7. After that, she came back and steamrolled through the consolation bracket. She won her first three consolation matches 8-0, 8-3 and 84. In the consolation finals she dropped the first set, 4-6, then won the next two, 6-4, 6-0. “Madison played brilliantly after getting off to a little bit of a slow start in the first set. She wore her opponent down to the point where she was able to dictate the flow of almost every point,” Gregor said. “The final set featured a barrage of crisp volley winners and overhead smashes to secure the victory.” St. Helens owned both entries in the doubles consolation finals, where Justice Krickeberg and Amanda Pardue lost to the No. 3 overall seed, Lexi Normine and Hanna Opdahl. “All in all a great year from this group of girls who worked hard and together achieved many of the goals we set out to accomplish,” Gregor said. It was Gregor’s final match as coach, as he will soon be moving to Veneta. “It has been a privilege to work with this program over the last nine years and I am grateful for the support of athletes, parents, staff and the boosters,” he said. “To have coach Chris Baruffi work alongside me has been the reason we have grown the program to this degree and I am especially grateful for his dedicated work and friendship.” – Kyle Boggs

Indians go back-to-back BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Despite playing on the home courses of two of their competitors, the Scappoose Indians boys golf team took home the 2013 Cowapa League championship. The Indians finished the twoday tournament 29 strokes ahead of the second-place Seaside Seagulls and had three of the top five individual finishers. Scappoose was up only seven strokes after the first 18 holes were finished at Tillamook’s Alderbrook Golf Course. Scappoose then made itself right at home at Gearhart Golf Course on May 7. “The Indians came out firing on the front nine,” said Scappoose coach Steve Hagen. Senior Justin Olbrich had the best nine holes of the entire tournament on the second day, shooting an even-par 36. He recorded a bogey on the fifth hole, birdied the seventh hole and shot par on the other seven holes. Olbrich’s senior teammates

Boys relays reset SHS records BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

There is no denying 2013 has been a historic season for the Scappoose High School track and field team. One look at the school’s record book shows quite clearly that is the case. The Indians set three new school records during the Wally Ciochetti Invitational at Cottage Grove High School on May 10. That brings the total of records broken this season to six with two weeks remaining in the season. The latest marks to be reset were in the boys relays and the girls 800 meters. Junior Charlie Davidson broke her own record in the 800. She won that event in a time of 2:16.14 to trim 1.4 seconds off the record she had established a season ago. The boys 4x100 relay team of senior Jadyn Harris, freshman Jarrett White, junior Justice Oman and senior Paul Revis took second place behind North Valley. Their time of 43.40 seconds was 13-hundredths of a second faster than the record time established in 2011. In the meet’s final event, junior Mychal Hortert, junior Nick Rust, junior Matt Shoun and Oman broke a 30-year-old record in the 4x400 relay. They ran a 3:24.79 to win the event and break the SHS record of 3:25.4 set in 1983. Even after setting new standards for the school in both relays, head coach David Harley said there is a chance to quicken up those times at the district championship and, hopefully, state championship meets. “There is always room for im-

Jared Phillips will be the new head varsity football coach at St. Helens High School this fall. Phillips was selected to replace John England, who decided to resign after spending 10 years at the helm. Phillips has been on the SHHS staff for the past eight years. The former Linfield College quarterback has been the varsity QB coach for the past four years and the JV head coach for two years. He was also the JV basketball coach for the past five years but will not continue in that capacity. He served as an assistant SHHS boys golf coach for three years as well. Prior to joining the staff at St. Helens, he spent two years as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Sam Barlow High School in Gresham, while conducting his student teaching. “I’m excited to get started. I’m excited about some of the changes that are going to be made,” Phillips said. “Most of all, I’ve got very positive receptions from our athletes.” While he declined to go into specifics about what exact on-field changes fans should expect to see, he said there will be some changes in how the team operates. “We will implement a system that fits our personnel and makes kids excited to play,” Phillips said. Increasing excitement around the program is a big priority. A lack of numbers plagued the team last fall and Phillips wants to avoid that problem next season. “The number one priority is to increase participation. The first part of that is to get more kids eligible,” he said. That means there will be an increased emphasis on academics, including a mandatory study hall for all freshman football players. One of Phillips’s goals for the football program is to maintain a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher. In addition, he said there will be See PHILLIPS, Page A14

Lions ride shutout streak into playoffs BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle

St. Helens senior Sue Sass recorded the first three outs of the game – including this double play – on Senior Night at SHHS on May 7.

Sophomore Mariah Mulcahy threw her first varsity nohitter on May 9 in a 3-0 win over the Parkrose Broncos (618, 4-10). It was the fourth straight shutout for Mulcahy and the No. 8 St. Helens Lions (18-5, 11-3), who beat the Rex Putnam Kingsmen (7-17, 5-9) 5-0 on May 7. The win over the Kingsmen was the last guaranteed home game for the Lions. But by staying in the top eight in the OSAA Power Rankings, St. Helens will have at least one more game at SHHS. The Lions recognized their lone senior before the first pitch against the Kingsmen, and then she took control of the game defensively. Sue Sass, the Lions’ senior shortstop, fielded a ground ball and threw to first for a putout on the game’s first at-bat. After a walk, Sass caught a pop-up then fired over to first for a

double play to end the inning. “I wasn’t expecting to get the first three outs, that’s for sure,” Sass said when asked to assess her senior night performance. “I was totally convinced I was gonna mess up.” She had plenty of chances to mess up later but avoided any major mistakes. She had the ball hit to her over and over again, recording seven assists while making just one error. “It was a good senior night. Sue Sass has done a great job for our program over the years. A great way to end our league season at home,” said St. Helens coach Jeff Edwards. Sass also scored the Lions’ second run. After reaching base on a fielder’s choice in the third inning, she stole second. When the ball got away from the Putnam shortstop, Sass sped her way home. In the second inning, St. Helens took a 1-0 lead on an RBI single from freshman Taylor Leal that scored junior Karli Edwards. The Lions then tacked on

three more runs in the fourth. Two of those came on an RBI single from junior Stevie Strawn. Strawn eventually scored on a wild pitch. The win was the second this season for St. Helens over Putnam, a perennial powerhouse. “To play two games against the defending league champions – and Putnam is the defending champs year after year after year – to beat them in two games 7-0 is a big step in our program, kind of a changing of the guard,” Jeff Edwards said. Other than a 2-1 setback to the league champion Sandy Pioneers last week, the Lions have been the class of the Northwest Oregon Conference. St. Helens has won nine of its last 10 games. During that stretch, the Lions have outscored their opponents 454. Sass attributed to the Lions’ late-season surge to steady defense and increased dedication in the batter’s box. “Our defense is where we want it so we’ve been spend-

ing a lot more time in the hitting cage. Everybody has about one, maybe two big problems they’re working on. We’re just focusing individually on it and it’s paying off finally. I think we’re all finally coming together as a team,” she said. The defense let down somewhat against Parkrose, committing four errors, but the Broncos couldn’t capitalize on any of those. Mulcahy’s nine strikeouts were a big reason why. “She’s just getting stronger and stronger as we go along,” Edwards said. Leal was 2-for-2 at the plate against Parkrose, drilling a triple to deep left field in the top of the sixth inning. “That would have been way up on the hill at our place,” Edwards said. She then scored the Lions’ final run on a base hit from sophomore Alyssa Giesbers. It was Giesbers’s second RBI of See LIONS, Page A14

Scappoose powers its way into play-in round BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

The season-long power surge from Scappoose’s Nos. 3 and 4 hitters continued on May 10. Junior Lexi Courtney and senior Cassidy Hoglund both blasted home runs on twostrike counts during the second game of a doubleheader against the Astoria Fishermen (7-18, 3-12). Their blasts led the Indians (12-12, 9-6) to a 16-1 win in the nightcap, following a 13-4 victory in the first game. The doubleheader sweep followed a hard-to-swallow 32 defeat to the No. 6 YamhillCarlton Tigers (17-7, 12-3). Courtney and Hoglund combined to hit 18 home runs in 24 regular season games, with Courtney accounting for 11 of those. That middle-of-the-lineup power will make Scappoose a tough out for any team it faces in the postseason. The Indians will travel to Sisters on May 16 for their play-in round game at 4 p.m. against the Outlaws (17-5, 11-4).

Scappoose sophomore Avery Jones slides into second with a stolen base on May 10.

Courtney led the Indians at the plate in the second game, collecting four hits in four atbats. That made up a quarter of the Tribe’s 16 total hits. Sophomore Avery Jones was 3-for-4 and junior Lacey Updike was 2-for-4. Updike pitched a complete game fourhitter to get the win in the

pitcher’s circle. It was freshman Kendal Bailey tossing a complete game in the first contest. She also allowed only four hits in picking up the win. Courtney and freshman Ashley MacInnis had two hits apiece to lead Scappoose at the plate. The Indians coupled

their eight hits with eight Fishermen errors to cruise to victory. Against Y-C, Scappoose fell behind early but came back to make the Tigers sweat it out until the end. Courtney had a two-out double in the bottom of the fourth inning. Jones followed

that with a base hit and the Indians found themselves down only one. Hoglund homered to tie the game in the sixth. After the first two Y-C batters were retired in the top of the seventh, the Tigers put together a two-out rally to score what turned out to be the win-

in quarterfinals at districts BEAVERTON — A pair of St. Helens High School seniors reached the quarterfinals at the 2013 Northwest Oregon Conference boys tennis district championship meet to lead the way for the Lions. Tavin Boynton and Caleb Johnstun both won their first two matches before being ousted from the tournament in straight sets in the quarters. Boynton took a 7-5, 6-3 victory in the opener. Johnstun’s’ first-round match went three sets before he emerged with a 2-6, 6-2, 10-8 win.

It was an easier go for Johnstun in round two, as he won 6-1, 7-5. Boynton’s second-round win came in straight sets as well, 6-3, 6-2. Matthieu Galizia added a 6-4, 6-3 win in the first round before falling in the second. After dropping his first match in singles, freshman Ryan Ward came back and scored a couple of victories in the consolation bracket. He won his first two consolation matches 8-5 and 8-0 before dropping an 8-2 decision in the consolation semifinals. In doubles action, junior

Brage Engebretsen and senior Shane Cooke won their first match 6-3, 0-6, 10-4 before being bounced in the second round. The Lions had three doubles teams in the consolation quarterfinals, with Alex Rose and Jose Silva defeating Chase Coughlin and John DeWitt 9-7 in an all-St. Helens match. Ryan Jensen and Keenan Reed won their match, 8-3. Both Lions’ teams dropped 8-3 decisions in the consolation semis. – Kyle Boggs

the game, as she drove in Mulcahy in the fourth inning. Sophomore Courtney Anderson was 2-for-2 and had the team’s other RBI. St. Helens went to Hood River on May 14 for a tune-up game against the Eagles (14-9, 4-8). Because the Power Rankings froze on May 13, the game is ultimately meaningless in terms of postseason positioning. The Lions have a bye in the play-in round. They will host a first-round playoff game on May 22. Edwards said he is trying to schedule another game on May 17 to avoid having an eight-day layoff.

a priority placed on coaches making sure all players have a role on the team. Phillips said there will also be some changes made throughout the coaching staff. These changes are aimed toward improving the product on the field – where the Lions finished 1-8 in 2012 – but also elsewhere. Phillips said other goals include creating a sense of pride for the football program among the student body, administration, faculty and community. “I expect to put a product on the field that coaches, players, parents and administration can be proud of and one that

the community can get fully behind and support,” he said. In order to do that, there will be a lot of work put in over the summer. Phillips plans on having 10 spring practices after Memorial Day, then going to a team camp at Linfield in late June. There are also speed and strength training sessions planned at the high school four days a week throughout the summer. He’s planning to have a passing league on Wednesday nights from June 26 until July 17 that pits current players against alumni. That will keep everyone sharp for when the SHHS camp rolls around on Aug. 12 and daily doubles begin on

Aug. 19. The Lions’ first game is on Aug. 30 against the Cleveland Warriors. All of the football activities are more than enough to keep most people busy throughout the summer, but Phillips will have more than that to keep him occupied. Jared and his wife Lindsay are expecting a baby girl in July. They also have a 3-year-old son, Gavin. Phillips teaches social studies at SHHS. Athletic director Cyndy Miller announced the decision the afternoon of May 10. He was selected from four candidates. Finalization of the hiring is still pending approval from the St. Helens School Board.

St. Helens posts its best finish at NWOC tourney BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

ALOHA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A huge second-day comeback pushed the St. Helens Lions past the Parkrose Broncos into third place at the Northwest Oregon Conference District Championship Meet at The Reserve on May 7. After the first day of the 36-hole tournament, St. Helens was in fourth place, 11 strokes behind Parkrose. But the Lions outshot the Broncos by 21 over the final 18 holes to solidify their spot as the No. 3 team in the NWOC. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best finish for the Lions since they entered the NWOC. St. Helens even shot three

strokes better than Wilsonville on the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second day, something SHHS coach Dave Lawrence says his team had never done. Sherwood won the district crown with a 36-hole team score of 614. Wilsonville was second at 648 and St. Helens finished with 661. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boys did well, especially the second day,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence said. Senior Nathan Hunter had the top finish for the Lions, ending up in sixth place after shooting 78 on back-to-back days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nathan Hunter made up 15 strokes in two days to tie for sixth in the league and just out of the top five individuals, who qualify for the state tournament,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He

was rock solid both days and lead us to third in the district tournament and third place overall in a strong league.â&#x20AC;? His sixth-place finish earns him second-team All League. Junior Cody Teyema ended up nine strokes back of Hunter with a 165. He shot an 81 on the first day, then got off to a hot start on the second day before ending up with an 84. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cody played very well Monday and had a 38 on his first nine holes Tuesday before struggling a little on his last nine holes,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence said. Rounding out the scores for St. Helens were Jacob Roxey and Michael Hewlett, both of whom finished with two-day totals of 172. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jacob had just enough


wayward shots to derail two very good rounds. Michael had a 12-stroke improvement on Tuesday and was key to us overtaking Parkrose for third,â&#x20AC;? Lawrence said. The coach attributed Hewlettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turnaround to removing excess weight from his bag between days trading in his long black pants for a pair of shorts in the hot sun. The No. 5 spot was split between Charlie Pense and Eric Aldridge. Pense shot an 89 on May 6; Aldridge shot 84 on May 7. TEAM SCORES 1, Sherwood 614. 2, Wilsonville 648. 3, St. Helens 661. 4, Parkrose 671. 5, Liberty 682. 6, Milwaukie 728. 7, Sandy 733.


St. Helens senior Nathan Hunter finished sixth in the Northwest Oregon Conference after posting back-to-back 78s last week.


SHHS improves by 5 games Lions get ready for NWOC An early lead didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold up for the St. Helens Lions (7-17, 4-13) during the final game of their season on May 10. The Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second batter, freshman Bryce Mulcahy, singled and scored on a passed ball to put St. Helens ahead 1-0. Junior Adam Spencer then led off the third inning with a base hit and scored on a fielderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice from sophomore Brody Takemoto. The Milwaukie Mustangs (8-16, 6-11) erased that two-run deficit by scoring five runs in the top of the fourth inning. The Mustangs went on to win, 8-2. Milwaukie topped St. Helens earlier in the week as well, winning 7-0 on May 7. Spencer had the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; only hit in that game. On May 8, St. Helens took a 5-3 non-league win against the Lincoln Cardinals (13-13, 1-7 6A Southwest). Jake Ramiskey came up big against Lincoln. The senior relieved sophomore starter Bryson Takemoto on the mound in the sixth inning. Takemoto left the game with a 3-1 lead.

KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle

Josh Keller makes his way into third base during a May 8 win.

Ramiskey gave up two runs on two hits, but then atoned for that in the bottom of the sixth. He drilled a two-run, two-out double to put St. Helens back on top for good. Junior Tyler Stangland pitched the seventh to register the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first save of the season. Junior Brennan Norton

went 2-for-3 at the plate. The Lions finished the season seventh in the eight-team Northwest Oregon Conference. The seven wins for St. Helens represents a five-game improvement from a season ago, when the Lions were 2-21. See more photos and full box scores at

girls. The junior took second in the high jump and long jump, and was fifth in the 100-meter dash. This was the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final meet before the district championship meet May 1617 at Rex Putnam High School. At the NWOC meet, Tinkle said the focus will be on qualifying as many athletes as possible for the state meet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are concentrating on getting athletes to state and on getting PRs. We probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t double most of our distance runners. That is an area in both boys and girls that we can improve at district,â&#x20AC;? Tinkle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been solid in the throws all season but at district we need to show some consistency. We have to do better in the sprints. We just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shown much improvement there. At district is the time to do that.â&#x20AC;?

main reason that his times are faster,â&#x20AC;? Tinkle said. His teammate, senior Kendrick Alvarez, finished second in the 300 hurdles and third in the 110s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kendrick is improving as well. Having someone pushing you all of the time in meets and practice makes you better,â&#x20AC;? Tinkle said. Those outings, along with a first- and secondplace finish from senior Nathan Reed in the discus and javelin, highlighted the day for the Lions. St. Helens scored dual meets against Liberty and Sandy, coming up short to both schools in both the boys and girls competitions. Liberty won the boys meet 84-61 and the girls meet 9647. The scoring in the girls competition between Sandy and St. Helens was incorrect, but Tinkle said Sandy won. The Pioneer boys won 100-45 over the Lions. Juniors Levi Luttrell and Chris Gray finished second and third in the pole vault, clearing 12-0 and 11-6. Kylie Reinholdt came up with the most points for the


ALOHA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Because of injuries and illnesses, the St. Helens Lions were unable to field a complete golf team for the Northwest Oregon Conference Championship tournament. The Lions had only three players able to golf on the second day of the two-day NWOC championship meet at The Reserve on May 7. A team must have four golfers to have a complete team. Senior Mikela Heimuller ended her career with 29 points the second day to lead the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has been a huge asset to the team as a steady point contributor,â&#x20AC;? said St. Helens coach Jen Johnston. Kaitlynn Burbank scored 15 after recording a 22-point total

SHERWOOD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Thomas Hughes continued a stretch of impressive outings in the hurdle races during a four-team meet at Sherwood High School on May 8. The St. Helens junior has won five of his last six races, the only non-firstplace finish coming at the McMinnville Invitational on April 26, when he was second in the 300 hurdles despite running under 41 seconds for the only time in his three seasons. At Sherwood, Hughes broke the 16-second barrier in the 110-meter high hurdles for the first time, winning with a time of 15.48 seconds. He won the intermediate hurdles with a time of 41.39 seconds. His coach, Gerry Tinkle, thinks Hughes can run even faster still. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thomas can get in the 14s. There is a lot of work he has done, but there is more to do. His form is getting better, but we still have some work to do on his arms. He is getting back on the track faster, which is the

Tribe places second in District 1

SHS: beats up on AHS in dual meet

provement, especially in the 4x100 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; handoffs arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t perfect yet and will need to be if they want to win at state. The speed and ability is there, the finetuning is needed this week and hopefully next â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you still have to qualify to run at state, never a sure thing,â&#x20AC;? Harley said. Earlier this season, Davidson had set school records in the 400 and 1,500, and junior Kenny Klippel recorded the best javelin throw in school history. In addition to the recordsetting performances, a handful of other individuals came up with impressive outings. Freshman Kayleigh Horecky won the long jump by more than three inches with a leap of 16 feet. Freshman Eleanor Jones finished third in both the 100 hurdles and the 300 hurdles with times of 16.54 and 47.97 seconds. Revis, Oman and Harris all had second-place finishes individually on the track. Revis was the runner-up in the 100 with a time of 11.36 seconds; Oman took second in the 400 at 50.87 seconds; and Harris finished the 300 hurdles in 41.36. Revis ended up fourth in the long jump as well, going 20-5. Those second-place finishes helped the boys to a fourthplace finish at the 15-team meet. North Valley was first in the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; competition. Henley won the girls meet and Scappoose was seventh in

Harley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to measure ourselves against that kind of competition to see where we are at on a statewide perspective. It was a good meet for us to participate in, and we did well in several areas. Good to know heading into district.â&#x20AC;? Two days before going to Cottage Grove, the Indians hosted the Astoria Fishermen for a dual meet. Scappoose won the boys and girls competitions handily. The boys won 101-46 and the girls by a score of 113-23. The girls won every event other than the 3,000 meters. Davidson, Jones, Horecky and senior Carly DiPietro all had double wins individually. Davidson was first in the 200 and 400; Jones won both hurdles; Horecky won the long jump and 100; and DiPietro was tops in the pole vault and triple jump. Nine different individuals won single events for the Scappoose boys, and the Tribe won both relays. Scappoose goes to Seaside High School May 16-17 for the Cowapa League Championship Meet.
