Port candidates ready to face off BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

The race for Port of St. Helens Commissioner is shaping up to be one of the more hotly contested races on the May 21 ballot. There are three Michael Clarke candidates running for two positions. Incumbent commissioner Terry Luttrell is running Terry Luttrell against Scappoose resident Michael Clarke for Position No. 4. Incumbent commissioner Chris Iverson is running unopposed but in the current political climate, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee a win, especially considering the focus that has been put on the port commission over the past two years in its dealings with proposed coal exporters Kinder Morgan and Ambre Energy. Along with a brief bio, we asked each of the candidates to answer three questions submitted by our readers. This week, we present answers from Luttrell and Clarke. ­­­­ See PORT, Page A4

OSP trooper shoots, kills St. Helens man BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

WARREN – Investigators say it could be several weeks before details behind the fatal shooting of a St. Helens man by Oregon State Police troopers is available. “When you have a shooting involving any police officer causing serious injury or death, you must investigate it using a certain protocol laid out by state statute,” said Columbia County District Attorney Steve Atchison, who is also a member of the Major Crimes Team leading the investigation. Details released by the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office indicate an Oregon State Police trooper reportedly attempted to pull Josiah M. Fischer, 27, over for speeding on U.S. Highway 30 at around 6:30 p.m. on May 3. Fischer allegedly fled from the trooper, leading OSP on a high-speed pursuit north on Highway 30 before turning west on Millard Road at 6:40 p.m. Columbia 9-1-1 dispatch records show Fischer then

Port zoning request draws heat from coal opponents BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — A rezoning request submitted by the Port of St. Helens to the county’s planning commission drew criticism and more than 100 people to the commission’s May 6 public meeting. “The Port of St. Helens has applied to expand the zoning around Port Westward. The Thompson Family also owns some of this land,” said Planning Division Manager Glen Higgins. “The Thompsons own the waterfront property on the west side.” ­­­­ See ZONING, Page A4

Heading down under for football and fun Drug house shut down following police raid

BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Spend some time on the river, head to the beach, go on a family trip — these are all good choices for summer vacations. But what about flying to Australia for four games of football? And then following that up with a three-day retreat in Hawaii? That’s what Joey Beggio has on his agenda. Beggio, who was a second-team All-Northwest Oregon Conference defensive lineman and honorable mention center for St. Helens last fall, will play on the West Central Conference Football Team in the Down Under Sports Tournament. Beggio will meet his teammates in Los Angeles, then fly to Australia and begin a whirlwind week of football and Aussy activities. They leave L.A. on July 7 for the 25th annual event on Australia’s Gold Coast. Once they arrive, they’ll have two full days of practices before going into the tournament.

Port Commissioner, Pos 4 Spotlight Endorses Clarke

Port of St. Helens - Position 4 race — “...the current port commission has demonstrated a secretive, hold-the-public-atbay approach in its operations.

ZONING: hearing held over until May 20 SHOOTING: autopsy Higgins said the Port is looking to rezone its property to a rural industrial designation. Under the county’s comprehensive plan, that designation would be RIPD or Resource Industrial Plan Development. “It’s a major map amendment,” said Higgins of the 950-plus acres of property. According to the staff report presented to the planning commission, the Port is looking to rezone the property for two primary reasons. “All of the vacant undeveloped land already zoned industrial is identified as wetlands,” said Higgins, noting the proposed zoning request did not target any wetland identified on the national wetland inventory. The issue of wetlands on the property appeared to be of concern to those at the meeting – and was one area that, at times, seemed to have conflicting information. “The subject property does not contain major wetlands,”

said Higgins, noting there was a typographical error in the staffing report, which indicated the property did have wetlands. “There are significant wetlands in the area already zoned as industrial,” Higgins added. The Port of St. Helens also said it needed to rezone the property as much of the existing property that is already zoned for industrial use in under lease hold to Portland General Electric, leaving little property available for new development. “This request is not based on any particular project at this time. We are simply trying to align the Port purchased property and possible water accesses with the existing Port Westward Industrial Park,” said Paula Miranda, deputy executive director for the Port. “Under the requested Resource Industrial Planned Development (RIPD) zoning, only farm use and management, production and harvesting of forest products, including wood processing and related operations are outright permit-

ted uses. All other uses are only permitted under prescribed conditions – such as a rural industrial use, which the applicant has to demonstrate compliance with all the standards and conditions required under section 680 of the county’s zoning and development ordinance.” Miranda said the standard required by the county include demonstrating compliance with the comprehensive plan and mitigating potential impacts. “In addition to all the requirements under the RIPD, any future applicant will have to go through the County’s Design Use Process review.” For Scappoose resident Pat Zimmerman, the Port’s claim to need more land for industrial use didn’t ring true. “The current Port Westward site in 905 acres, over 700 of which are vacant. The Port contends that it must have the addition 905 acres requested in this application because the existing land is not available for development. It bases this contention on two statements,

both of which are false,” said Zimmerman. Zimmerman said those two statements are that PGE’s leasehold makes the area unavailable and that the entirety of the area inside the Port Westward Industrial Park not currently developed is identified as wetlands. ‘It’s fascinating that the Port has suddenly found the existence of wetlands to be a barrier to development. Over many years, the Port has marketed, improved, used sophisticated financing techniques and taken on great indebtedness to encourage development on the existing 700-plus vacant acres,” Zimmerman added. Despite the substantial amount of time allotted to the meeting, the commission will hold the hearing over until May 20. MORE ONLINE Read more on this story online at

PORT: both candidates look to grow port From PAGE A1

Terry Luttrell My name is Terry Luttrell I am a graduate of St. Helens High School. I attended various schools including PCC, Oregon State University, and received my theology degree from Berean University. I am married to Susan and we have three grown children and three grandchildren. I have tried to serve in the communities where I have lived. I am currently serving on the Columbia County Planning Commission and I have served six years as a Port of St. Helens Commissioner. I believe my background and work experience gives me a broad view of what Columbia County needs. I have managed a farm, worked in the woods and mills before pursuing my advanced education so I know what hard work is all about. I have a common sense approach to solving problems and making decisions. I have served on a variety of financial committees, which gives me experience in this very important area. As a pastor for over 35 years I have worked with people, boards, and committees with various problems that needed to be solved. I feel qualified help solve our county problems.

my best to make these choices for our county.

Q: What will you do to bring jobs to Columbia County? A: One of the biggest things that must be done to bring jobs into our area is to listen to the needs of future employers. This must be balanced with what is best for our county. We must make continued improvements to our transportation, which includes our roads, rail, river traffic, docks, barges, etc. Without a way to transport goods most industries will not consider coming. We at the Port are already advertising what we have in a variety of ways. Go online and check us out or read a publication in one of the trade magazines. We are getting the word out that Columbia County is open for business and companies are beginning to take notice as we are receiving many inquiries. Q: Do you support or oppose the coal export terminal projects? Why? A: The last question concerning coal terminal I believe is a dead issue at this point. When you don’t have the support of state and federal politicians, it can’t proceed. One of our state representatives said coal was dead. I am willing to listen to any company that has a plan to help Columbia County and get our people back to work and lower our unemployment numbers. When companies locate here it helps our tax base, which supports services throughout the county, including our schools.

ness and I have experience running successful businesses. I know I can improve how the Port is operated so it too can be successful. I live in Scappoose with my wife, Lyndsey, and daughter, Ava. Lyndsey graduated from Scappoose High School and is the daughter of Larry Barker and Cheryl Barker. Q: What will your number one priority be as a Port Commissioner? A: I will create a business plan for the future of the Port, which will include ensuring that transparency and public access to the Port is a priority. The business plan will detail how the Port will bring jobs to the County. Once the Port has a plan in place, the Port will take the steps necessary to meet the goals of: 1) transparency; 2) job growth; 3) a Port that is well respected and beneficial to the people and businesses of Columbia County. Job creation is the number one goal, but it must be obtained through transparency and in-depth research before contracts are signed. Only through transparency and detailed research can the Port determine if a business deal is positive or negative for Columbia County. The bankrupt ethanol plant, battery plant, gypsum plants are all examples of what happens when government does not act like a business and does not do enough research or signs bad deals. Let’s not add the coalby-rail terminal to the list of bad business deals the Port has entered because it does limited or no research.

Q: What will your number one priority be as a Port Commissioner? A: My first priority has always been to do my best to bring family wage jobs to Columbia County. Growing up in this area I can remember a prosperous economy. When a person graduated from high school if they didn’t want to Michael Clarke Q: What will you do to go on to college jobs were I am a graduate of Rainier bring jobs to Columbia available at many of our local High School (and Rainier County? businesses or one of the many Middle School); I graduated A: The Port needs to know mills.

Q.) Do you support or oppose the coal export terminal projects? Why? I oppose all coal-by-rail export terminal projects until there is objectively obtained research proving that this is a good deal for Columbia County. I want to know the true costs to the county, not just the benefits. I also want to know who benefits, not just that there is benefit. There has been no proof that coal unit trains will actually create jobs and not cost jobs to Columbia County due to economic impacts to current businesses and future economic development. I feel that the barge export facility contract is a legally binding contract and should be honored. If there were a request for new terms or conditions then the request would have to be judged on its merits. This does not mean that I think the Port got the best deal it could. More transparency and research would have been the right thing to do and would have probably resulted in a better deal for the Port and the people of Columbia County.

RAID: residence set fire months ago, likely from bad drug deal



Investigators from OSP and the Columbia County Major Crimes team spent more than nine hours overnight piecing together the evidence from the scene. Oregon State Police identified the two troopers involved in the incident as Robin May and Justin Oxenrider, both assigned to the St. Helens office. Both troopers have been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. It is not known which of the two troopers, or if both troopers, fired on Fischer. Shortly after the report of shots fired, additional law enforcement from St. Helens, Scappoose and Vernonia arrived on scene, as did the Oregon State Police crime lab and the Major Crimes team. “You must put together a team to investigate the case that does not involve the agency whose officer was involved in the shooting,” said Atchison, who noted regulations prevent investigators from questioning the officers involved in the shooting for several days. Atchison said those interviews would like take place around the middle of this week and would be conducted by the lead investigator from the sheriff’s office. An autopsy on Fischer’s body took place on May 4 at the State Medical Exam-

iner’s Office in Clackamas, but Atchison estimated details from that autopsy would not be released until next week. Investigators initially reported the suspect as a female, but corrected this once positive identification of the suspect had been made. Fischer’s next of kin has been notified of his death. Fischer’s last known residence was Hidden Oak Apartments on Gable Road and had until recently worked at St. Helens Computer Store in Olde Towne. Although Fischer did have a prior first-degree theft conviction, it is not known if this was a factor in the event. “All of the reports will be gathered up and once the investigation is done, the lead investigator will send it all to me,” said Atchison. “I have two things I can do at that point. One is present the matter to the grand jury, bring witnesses in, have the grand jury review the case and make a decision on whether or not the officer acted within the constraints of the law, followed policy and state statutes on the use of deadly physical force.” The other option, Atchison said, would for him to make that decision without presenting it to the grand jury. He also noted officers will sometimes request to have the case before a grand jury to “have their names cleared.”

other businesses from wanting to be in Columbia County. The Port needs to be run as a business to bring jobs. I would protect the transportation system of Columbia County so it can be used as a resource for Columbia County businesses, not for multinational corporations that want to use our infrastructure for their profit and little or no job creation. I would make sure all deals are based on research and fact, not based on vague promises and dreams. No businesses sign open-ended contracts, yet the current Port does. This needs to stop.

Brumbles is outstanding What can we do, as parents, and concerned voters to insure our children receive the best quality education with the resources available? The most effective way we can influence this vital process is to vote in a school board member who truly and honestly has our children’s education as their utmost priority. From that viewpoint, we must say, Tracy Brumbles is the most qualified individual we can personally endorse for St. Helens School Board Position No. 3. She is running as the result of countless individuals requesting her to do so. She does not seek this position for a personal agenda, self-advancement or any self-serving reason. She seeks it for the love of her child, the children of those who have asked her to run, and all children who would benefit from her leadership in such an important position. We have come to know Tracy through our church, where we have witnessed her strong moral character in actions, not just words. She is a dedicated, hard working, and detailed person with a wonderful outgoing and personable attitude. She seems to always have a smile on her face, which illustrates her genuinely kind and caring nature. She has held, and excelled in many positions in the church, to include: praise song leader, Sunday school le teacher, deaconess, vacasuction Bible school leader, and

board member as well. Tracy is a highly intelligent individual, yet humble, down to earth, easily approachable and willing to listen. She is an entrepreneur, who has proven herself in the business community, owning and running an extremely productive family business, requiring interaction with the public on a personal level daily. Tracy Brumbles is an outstanding mother, nurturing and involved in every aspect of her children’s lives. She is a natural, wonderful mom who has worked hard to balance her primary role as a parent with being a successful business owner. She demonstrates wisdom and patience beyond her years in her interactions with children and adults alike. Tracy is a levelheaded, sound individual whose attributes make her the best choice by far, for St. Helens School Board Position No. 3. John and Patty Parsons, Deer Island Good news It is very common knowledge that our community is struggling. There aren’t enough jobs for hard working people, and our local government doesn’t have the resources to keep up with rising costs. There is some good news, however. The Port of St. Helens has been working very hard with several potential businesses interested in creating opportunities in the very

near future. This would be a much-needed boost to our local economy and also helping to improve our region’s declining infrastructure. It always puzzles me when people fail to realize how important jobs are to making Columbia County, the Port District and our community a better place to live. Jobs mean more paychecks and more tax revenue for our entire community and an improvement to all our qualities of life. Working in partnership with our local government, new as well as existing businesses can make a positive impact on the lives of countless neighbors. In 2013 Port Commissioner Terry Luttrell is up for re-election. I encourage creating jobs and increasing our quality of life, especially when we have strong leaders like Terry to encourage growth for our community and the environment. Commissioner Terry Luttrell is such a man. If you agree that our community deserves a better future and more jobs then support Mr. Luttrell. He’s looking out for us. We can’t afford to discourage industrial growth nor lose Terry’s sensible leadership. Scott Parker, Scappoose Voice of the future In 2007 Terry Luttrell was elected to the Port of St. Helens Board because of his commitment to support-

ing family-wage jobs and a stronger economy for all of us. The Port of St. Helens is a major economic driver here in the port district, and the future is beginning to look a

little brighter as the economy gradually improves regionally, nationally and globally. Strong, stable leadership is needed more today than ever before to ensure a better tomorrow. Now is not the

time to turn away industry, family wage jobs and other opportunities. Commissioner Luttrell is pro-jobs, prolabor and pro-infrastructure

Post-industrial change in an industrial town BY MELISSA SERAFIN St. Helens Economic Development Corp.

Employment in the U.S. manufacturing industry has seen better days. Since 2000, we’ve lost 33.1 percent of manufacturing jobs – more than the percentage lost during the Great Depression. Even worse, while manufacturing accounted for 43 percent of lost jobs total during the Great Depression, and 34 percent of all jobs total, the sector currently only represents 11 percent of jobs and almost 33 percent of all job loss. In 2012, there were more unemployed Americans than manufacturing workers in the U.S.

Rather than focusing on large businesses that may be out of our reach, let’s focus on one we can impact: small business. Small businesses are becoming increasingly important to the U.S. economy, especially as we transition into a post-industrial society and switch from producing good to providing services. The small business industry now provides 55 percent of all jobs in the U.S., and 66 percent of new jobs since the 1970s. Since 1990, while big business eliminated 4 million jobs, small businesses added 8 million. And ensuring the success of our small busi-

the country are struggling with this conundrum, and St. Helens is no different. During my time in Columbia County, I’ve heard countless residents lament the closings of our manufacturing facilities, and countless others express their hope for a new facility to open and provide an employment hub for our community. However beneficial this would be, there is no guarantee another large manufacturing facility, or any other large business, will move to the area and bring jobs. In fact, a recent study conducted by the Federal Reserve Bank found that recruiting large businesses is unlikely to be successful or will come at significant costs. Communities often end up competing with

nesses is incredibly simple: make the effort to shop there. Small businesses help diversify our economy, adding much needed resilience. If one or two businesses employ a large portion of our town, the closing or downsizing of the facility will have devastating and farreaching effects on our entire economy. Though the closing of a small business is nothing to celebrate, the overall economy will not experience a significant loss. Whatever the fate of the manufacturing sector, one thing is certain: diversifying our economy, encouraging entrepreneurship, and assisting our existing small businesses are always good choices.

Columbia County Habitat for Humanity is on the move BY BOYD RUBY President, CCHFH Board

Many exciting things are happening in Columbia County because of the great efforts of board of directors and volunteers at Columbia County Habitat for Humanity. Coming up on May 10 and 11, the grand opening of the new Habitat for Humanity ReStore will be held. Earlier in April, a staff of volunteers liquidated

the inventory of the former thrift store to make room for home improvement and remodeling materials and supplies that now stock the shelves. Revenue generated from the new store will help build new homes for lowincome families in Columbia County, with the aid of dedicated and caring Habitat volunteers. Breaking ground for three new homes will start this summer. We would like to again extend a big thank you to

the Oregon Realtors Association for their continuing support of Columbia County Habitat for Humanity with their generous grant of $4,500 earlier. It is greatly appreciated, and will be put to good use. We would also like to thank Boise Cascade. We received a large donation of office furniture and materials from Boise Cascade Paper recently to help with our grand opening of the first Habitat for Human-

because he truly believes that our community deserves better. Over the last several years he has been focused on improving and diversifying our local economy – Luttrell cares deeply about our home, having grown up in St. Helens and served as a pastor throughout Oregon for over 30 years. As a community member and elected official, Luttrell has strong relationships throughout the county and works well with a wide range of people. His continued leadership as commissioner is critical if we want to see local families live the higher quality of life we all know they deserve. Commissioner Terry Luttrell is the voice for a stronger future, a healthier economy and a thriving port. Cliff Connelly, St. Helens Re-elect Terry Luttrell Although I agree with Mr. Clarke that coal trains

will hinder crossings in this county, Terry Luttrell is still my number one choice. Mr. Campbell and Mr. Whipple should get to know Clarke better before recommending him for this position. I have had dealings with Mr. Clarke for a year and a half and have found him to be immature, unprofessional and demanding. Clarke’s way of dealing with situations would hinder the progress within an existing cohesive elected group. Want transparency? Exercise your right to know. Ask the existing commissioners. Go to the Port Commission meetings. Mr. Clarke has only been to one meeting. The coal trains are not a done deal. Vote for the person with experience and knowledge, not the most signs. Yvonne Pea, Warren On the fast track In the upcoming election for Port of St. Helens board members, I intend to vote for Michael Clarke. I will vote for Mr. Clarke because there are far too many unanswered

questions surrounding the issue of coal trains. One major question that needs to be answered is how we will respond if and when derailments or breakdowns leave citizens and emergency vehicles stranded on the wrong side of the tracks. We all know about the derailment near Cornelius Pass. Recently, a breakdown between Scappoose and St. Helens left a long train blocking several private crossings for hours. It appears that present board members set this and other questions aside to put coal transport on the fast track. Trudy Amstutz, Warren Learning the facts Michael Clarke is the change we need on the Port of St. Helens. He is standing up to the corporate interests that have seduced our current commissioners. I have lived in Columbia County all my life. I am not often involved in politics, but I resent it when those who have been elected to office dismiss and disre-

gard the will of those who elected them. We have a right to transparency from the port. Looking at just the safety and health issues, the coal trains and the Port need to give the families of the affected communities better and more substantive information why we will be better off. Is our community prepared to handle environmental emergencies relating to these mile-long coal trains? For me, I have more questions than answers. What is the cost to our small businesses; cost in lowered property values; cost in new taxes and time lost? I’m voting for Michael Clarke, a candidate for Port Commissioner that is interested in learning the facts before mistakes are made. Kathleen Tesar, St. Helens Clarke represents concerns There are many who say, “You can’t stop coal trains.” What I find missing from those arguments supporting coal exports via Columbia County is the discussion of

what the governors of Oregon and Washington stated in their joint letter to the EPA published on March 28. They state, “The true costs of longterm commitments to supply coal from federal lands for energy production, whether domestically or in Asia must be examined.” Those, who like me, desire an environment in which living communities can expect to support future generations hope for this examination and discussion. As people of our nation, state, community and households, we are part of a problem that is verifiably on our doorsteps wherever we live. That is the clear and present danger of increasing CO2 emissions causing global warming with climate changes everywhere. Burning coal is a major source of CO2 greenhouse gases. As responsible sources, the governors explain clearly the problems of contributing further to these gases. The loss of adequate snow pack in our mountains and ocean acidification are costs no amount of wealth will be able to bear. I ask those who say the

trains will be ok and the jobs forthcoming, to look at this overreaching question; how do we justify coal exportation in the face of the irretrievable harm more emissions will yield? I am hoping this is part of how this proposed project is analyzed by the Port commissioners and the leadership in our communities and state. I have found that Port commissioner candidate Michael Clarke has indicated a keen interest in studying all the concerns expressed regarding coal transport via Columbia County. I appreciate his emphasis on small business development for job creation. There are those who say, “The railroad can do what it wants and will run as they do.” But the Port can decide not to provide coal export facilities to service that particular commodity. I hope Michael Clarke will be seated on the commission to represent my concerns for a sustainable future and support a business community and jobs that coexist with those concerns.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a public hearing will be held before the City of St. Helens City Council on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 6:50 PM in the City Council Chambers, located in the City Hall building at 265 Strand Street, St. Helens, OR. Access into City Hall for this hearing will be from the plaza side entrance. The purpose of this hearing is to consider the release of a portion of a City owned wetland preservation tract which is a part of the Eagle Lake Bluffs Subdivision located just north of property addressed as 424 N. 8th Street. The tract is intended to preserve a wetland deemed significant to the City. This proposed action does not eliminate the tract, but reduces a portion of the tract that provides access from N. 8th Street in trade for an access easement to said tract. This is related to a replat proposal of the existing Eagle Lake Bluffs Subdivision. The owner of the Eagle Lakes Bluff Subdivision wishes to utilize this area for buildable lots. The City Council can consider this as the access need can still be accommodated with an easement given to the City as part of the replat process. In order for the City to release a portion of public land, a public hearing must first be held. At this hearing the City Council will formally determine whether said portion of tract is needed. All persons are invited to submit testimony in person or in writing. Written submission will be accepted until 5pm on the day of the public hearing. Questions should be directed to the City Planning Department by phone: 503-397-6272, e-mail:, mail: PO Box 278, St. Helens, OR 97051, or in person at City Hall. Anyone needing special assistance should contact City Hall at least 72 hours in advance to ensure the necessary assistance is available. The Council Chambers are fully accessible.

There is some question how well this will work in Oregon if soil temperatures are not very warm when the plants are put out. It would seem to be worth pursuing in raised beds. Research in Pennsylvania indicates that the technique works well for cabbage too.

BY CHIP BUBL OSU Extension Service

Aphids on the move A close look around your landscape will likely reveal an abundance of aphids. They come in a multitude of colors and shapes. Some are winged, some are not. A general rule says that if insects are found in Chip Bubl bunches on the undersides of leaves or on succulent new growth, they are probably aphids. Whiteflies are the one exception and they don’t usually show up until it is warmer. Aphids are sucking insects and they dine on the sugars being produced in the leaves and transported around the plant. They are especially damaging on young trees and new growth. Leaves that harbor a lot of aphids will take on a wrinkled or puckered look. Often ants will be found guarding the aphids and feeding on their “honeydew” droppings. Aphids can sometimes transport significant diseases, though there is not much we can do about that. Lady beetles and other predators will harvest a significant number of aphids. We can encourage the predators by reducing insecticide use and by using products that do not have a long residual effect. Soaps, oils, and strong streams from your hose are all strategies that tend to be gentle on the good bugs. To be effective, however, these techniques need to be used early, somewhat more often, and carefully, so that they are directed under the leaves where the aphids hide.

The “June drop” that is common here usually won’t remove enough (and with better pollination, there will be less of it). You should leave only the largest undamaged fruit in each cluster. The objective is to get each fruit spaced about one hand width apart. Besides improving fruit quality, thinning will reduce limb breakage from too heavy a load. While you are thinking about apples, May is the month when most of the apple scab infections get started. If it stays dry, scab will not be much of a problem (for the first time in four years!). But on the unlikely chance that rains starts in earnest again, spray with a diluted mixture of lime-sulfur (one trade name is “PolySul”) according to label instructions once bloom is done. The coddling moth will emerge toward the middle of May so you need to think about how you might manage those rascals to avoid the worm in the apple. Products with spinosad seem to be the best choice for the home gardener. The apple maggot will emerge in late June. Spring foliage disease The dry weather has helped with plant diseases.

After four successive wet springs, our trees should look a lot better this year. As plants leaf out, the fungi and bacteria that attack them can’t multiply.

As I write this, apples are in full bloom, plums and cherries are just finishing up and my quince trees are just getting started. Our honeybees are still ailing but they should at least not show their reluctance to fly when it is cold and wet.

Throws power St. Helens in dual Lions end BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — Jacob Zartman wasn’t sure whether to look at the measuring tape or turn away. After establishing multiple personal best throws in the shot put on May 1, the St. Helens junior took a half-inch lead on his final throw against Sherwood senior Logan Smith. Smith owned the event’s last throw. After Smith made his final heave, a look of nervousness washed over Zartman’s face. “It’s going to be close,” St. Helens throws coach Kyle Wroblewski told Zartman. As volunteer Todd Smith leaned down to take the measurement, Zartman went back and forth, deciding whether to see with his own eyes or wait for Smith to call out the distance. “Forty-six, three,” Smith said. Zartman, who had thrown 46-8 on his final throw, won. It was a foot-and-a-half improvement from his previous best mark, thrown earlier this season. “He’s getting up there,” said St. Helens coach Gerry Tinkle. As a team, the Lions couldn’t come up with enough points against the Bowmen though. Sherwood’s boys won the dual meet, 89-56, and the Bowmen took the girls competition by a score of 121-24. In addition to Zartman, St. Helens took several other first-place finishes – most of those coming in the field events. Seniors Nathan Reed and Nick Dummer combined with Zartman to give the Lions a sweep of the throws. Reed won the discus with a throw of 136-9 and Dummer’s 155-0 toss in the javelin was good for first. Senior Jeff Steinke jumped 19-3 to win the long jump and junior Levi Luttrell cleared 11-6 in the pole vault to take first. Junior Thomas Hughes won both the 110meter high hurdles and the 300-meter intermediate hurdles. A win from junior Bryan Strang in the 1,500

ST. HELENS — An April 30 win over Wilsonville secured the No. 3 spot in the Northwest Oregon Conference dual meet standings for the St. Helens Lions, the best finish an SHHS girls tennis team has had in the league. St. Helens beat Wilsonville 6-3 at home. Of the nine matches played, five stretched into three sets. St. Helens won three of those five matches. Junior JoCee Giroski won in straight sets to close out the season with a 12-2 record. She won the No. 3 singles match 6-2, 6-4. The match of the day, according to St. Helens coach Mike Gregor, came in the No. 1 doubles spot. Lions Lexi Normine and Hanna Opdahl dropped a hard-fought match, 6-7, 75, 6-4. “That one could have gone either way on several occasions, with strong wind causing problems for both teams throughout the match,” Gregor said. Madison Kaplan and Lauren Chambers both won singles matches for St. Helens. The doubles teams of Amanda Pardue and Justice Krickeberg, Thitika Pratuang and Alex Fritz, and Jessica January and Nikki Spreadborough all picked up wins for the Lions as well. St. Helens started play at the Northwest Oregon Conference Championships on May 6. The championship tournament concludes on May 8.

Lions take series finale from Falcons BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Sitting 30th in the OSAA Power Rankings, the St. Helens Lions (6-15, 4-11) will need some help from the teams above them to climb up to the 24 spot necessary to reach the play-in round. When this paper went to press, the Lions had two chances left to make their case on the diamond – both against the No. 31 team in the power rankings, the Milwaukie Mustangs (6-16, 411). Those teams met in Milwaukie on May 7 and will finish the regular season in St. Helens at 4:30 p.m. on May 10. Even if the Lions win both games, it’s unlikely they’ll move far enough up in the rankings to reach the play-in round, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. St. Helens helped itself out by winning the final game of its three-game series against the Liberty Falcons (13-11, 7-8) last week. The Lions used a four-run fifth inning on May 3 to power past the Falcons. Four straight St. Helens hitters scored to start the inning. Junior Josh Keller

Wyatt Mosley then ripped a tworun single to put St. Helens on top 8-6. Liberty added a run in the top of the seventh before freshman

Bryce Mulcahy coaxed a ground ball out to end the game with an 8-7 win for the Lions. Mulcahy earned the win in relief. He pitched the final three innings and allowed only one run. Mosley was 2-for-3 at the plate with two RBIs, as was sophomore Brody Takemoto. The Lions had lost the previous two games to the Falcons, falling 9-8 on May 1 and 7-3 on April 30. St. Helens recorded 15 hits by eight different players in the second game. Stangland led the way with a 3-for-4 outing. He also had three RBIs, two of them coming in the Lions’ five-run sixth inning. Mosley’s leadoff double started the scoring rally. He finished 2-for-5 with two RBIs. After closing to within a run in the sixth, St. Helens got runners on first and second with two outs in the top of the seventh inning. Unfortunately for the Lions, they couldn’t extend the two-out rally. Scheer was 2-for-4 with a double. Takemoto, Spencer and sophomore Bryce Winnier had two hits apiece. See LIONS, Page A16


Tribe turns up the heat against Seagulls BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Being shut out did not sit real well with the Scappoose Indians (10-11, 7-5). After suffering a 3-0 defeat to the No. 1 Banks Braves (20-2, 12-0), Scappoose unleashed its power in a doubleheader against the Seaside Seagulls (6-14, 4-8) on May 3. The Indians crossed home plate a staggering 38 times in the two wins. Scappoose won the first game 15-5. In the nightcap, Scappoose scored 10 runs in the top of the seventh inning to put the exclamation point on a 23-5 victory. Freshman Ashley MacInnis and junior Lexi Courtney both hit home runs during the Indians’ 10run explosion in the seventh. Courtney’s home run was her 10th of the season and capped a spectacular day at the plate. She was 3-for-5 with a triple in the first game and went 4-for-5 in

game two. MORE Senior ONLINE Cassidy Hoglund See full also homebox red for the scores at Tribe in the thechronisecond game, giving her five on the season. In addition to the long balls, the Tribe got a 3-for-5 outing at the plate from junior Lacey Updike. Updike doubled twice and also picked up the win in relief in the pitcher’s circle. Freshman Jessie Dykes had a single and a triple. In the first game, Scappoose actually fell behind 4-0 in the first inning. The Indians chipped away with two runs in the second inning and one in the third before pushing across eight in the fourth inning. MacInnis was 3-for-4 to join Courtney in the three-hit club in

the game. Hoglund and junior Sophia Hart were both 2-for-4. Updike once again was credited with the win in relief. On April 30, the Indians played the top-ranked Braves closely. It was the second time this season Scappoose has lost to Banks by three runs. No other team in 4A has done that once this season against the Braves. While the three runs scored were the fewest all season by the Braves, the Indians could only muster one hit – a single from Updike. Scappoose hosted the YamhillCarlton Tigers (13-7, 9-3) on May 7 and then close out the regular season at home with a May 10 doubleheader against the Astoria Fishermen (6-16, 2-10). By sweeping Seaside, Scappoose clinched third place in the Cowapa League and thus a berth in the OSAA’s play-in round. The Indians will learn their play-in opponent sometime after 10 p.m. on May 12.

Scappoose is rounding into peak form Dual meet victories against the Seaside Seagulls were a relaxed affair for the Scappoose Indians boys and girls teams last week. Those wins were followed by some intense competition from a handful of SHS athletes at the Nike/Jesuit Twilight Relays two days later. Senior Paul Revis put up several impressive finishes at Jesuit on May 3. The first-year track athlete jumped 21-6 ¾ to take second place in the long jump, only three-quarters an inch behind event winner Ryon Clement of Barlow. Revis also finished third in the afternoon heat of the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.13. Once the elite race was finished in the evening, Revis had the seventh-best time at the meet. He also ran on both of the Tribe’s relays, helping each come within a second of the existing school records. Revis, Matt Shoun, Jarrett White and Nick Rust finished eight in the 4x100 with a time of 43.66 seconds. The SHS record in that event is 43.53. Revis, Rust, Mychal Hortert and Justice Oman clocked a 3:26.07 in the 4x400 to finish seventh. The SHS record in that event is 3:25.4. “The relay times were fantastic and all the guys were quite excited to be right in the range of new school records and look to break both of them very soon,” said Scappoose coach David Harley. One record was broken at the event. Junior Charlie Davidson reset her own record in the 1,500. She finished 11th with a time of 4:42 to knock 3.5 seconds off the record she set while winning a state championship her freshman year. “Charlie reset her record in convincing fashion, which was great to see,” Harley said.

Lions pick up back-to-back shutout victories BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

In their three games last week, the No. 8 St. Helens Lions (16-5, 9-3) allowed only two runs. After suffering a 2-1 setback to No. 3 Sandy (21-1, 12-0) on April 30, the Lions got back-to-back shutouts from sophomore pitcher Mariah Mulcahy against the Wilsonville Wildcats (16-7, 9-3) and the Milwaukie Mustangs (2-21, 0-12). St. Helens managed only one hit – a single from senior Sue Sass – against the Pioneers but were still ahead 1-0 going into the sixth inning. St. Helens took the lead in the bottom of the fourth on a sac fly from Mulcahy that scored freshman Ashley Giesbers. In the sixth, however, Sandy strung together three singles and a sacrifice fly to push two runs across. “Other than that sixth inning, we played pretty well,� said St. Helens coach Jeff Edwards. Mulcahy struck out 12 Pioneers in the loss. She topped that on May 1 against Wilsonville to help St. Helens get some pay back for a loss earlier in the season. She was dominant the entire

game, striking out 13 Wildcats compared to no walks in a four-hit shutout. “She was really good at Wilsonville. They really never threatened. I think they got a runner at third in the last in-

ning and that was it,� Edwards said. Meanwhile the Lions, despite sleeping most of the bus ride there, jumped on the ’Cats for a run in the first inning, then added to that lead

in the third and fourth. “It was especially nice to see one day after the emotional loss to Sandy and the way that went down – it could have been really easy to be exhausted and not come out

and play,� Edwards said. “They looked tired on the bus, slept most the way up. I was a little worried.� Giesbers sparked the team on offense, going 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a steal. Sass was also 2-for-3 with a steal. Sophomore Alyssa Giesbers, Ashley’s sister, was 2for-3 with an RBI. Mulcahy also drove in one run on one hit to help St. Helens take a 40 victory. Mulcahy and junior Karli Edwards were both 2-for-3 in a 7-0 win against the Mustangs. Edwards drove in one run. Sophomore Michelle Sass went 2-for-4 with an RBI, and Alyssa Giesbers drove in two runs. St. Helens showed off its speed on the basepaths, going a perfect 4-for-4 on stolen base attempts against Milwaukie. St. Helens finishes the regular season in a little bit of mystery this week. The Lions hosted the Rex Putnam Kingsmen (6-16, 4-8) on May 7. A May 10 game against Parkrose (5-17, 3-9) was moved to 5 p.m. on May 9 at Parkrose High School. St. Helens has a May 14 game scheduled at No. 6 Hood River Valley High School (13-8, 3-7), but the

OSAA’s Power Rankings freeze at 10 p.m. on May 13, so that game may be moved to May 10. If the Lions maintain their current spot at No. 8 in the rankings, they will have a bye in the play-in round. If they drop in the rankings, they will host a play-in game on May 16. Scheduling details will be posted at as they become available. SHS 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 – 2 6 1 SHHS 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 – 1 1 1

St. Helens fighting to the finish SHGS kicks off 2013 season A variety of issues is keeping the St. Helens Lions girls golf team from being at full strength for this week’s Northwest Oregon Conference Championship Meet, but the team is doing its best to overcome those setbacks. The Lions’ top player, junior McKenzie Schull suffered an ankle injury walking down a steep cart path during an April 30 match at Mountain

View. Coach Jen Johnston said Schull’s ankle is sprained and possibly fractured, so she is finished for the season. She was in seventh place individually in the NWOC. At Mountain View, Kaitlynn Burbank chipped in a blind shot from 20 yards out, earning the shot of the day according to her coach. Burbank was one of only two Lion golfers to finish day

one of the two-day district meet. She scored 22 points for St. Helens. Senior Mikela Heimuller was the other SHHS golfer to finish the round. She scored 27. Johnston said she was hopeful the team would be able to field a full team on the second day of the competition, which was May 7. See more at

Tribe makes late push for postseason berth As the regular season comes close to a close, the Scappoose Indians (11-12, 7-6) have started a strong push for one of the Cowapa League’s three guaranteed postseason spots. After starting league play 24, the Indians have won five of their last seven games against Cowapa League opponents. Scappoose knocked off two teams currently ahead of the Indians in the standings in their latest three-game winning streak. Scappoose beat the secondplace Banks Braves (12-10, 94) 6-3 on May 1. On May 3, the

Indians beat the Yamhill-Carlton Tigers (4-16, 2-11) 9-4. The Tillamook Cheesemakers (13-9, 8-5) – currently one game ahead of the Indians in third place – were the latest team to fall victim to the Tribe. Scappoose beat Tillamook 8-2 on May 3. Junior pitcher Will Sprute picked up wins against Banks and Tillamook while senior Kyle Durvin pitched a complete-game victory against Y-C. Durvin had two hits in two of the three games, as did junior Hunter Hoyt. Scappoose has two games

left in the regular season. The Indians play at Seaside (8-14, 3-10) at 5 p.m. on May 8. Scappoose closes the season at home against Astoria (14-7, 103) at 5 p.m. on May 10. If the Indians are able to leapfrog the Cheesemakers and move into third place, they will have a play-in game on the road on May 16. The Indians will still have a shot at making the play-in round if they finish fourth based on their OSAA Power Rankings. See more at

Fishermen bag salmon while raising money for Boosters The Columbia County Fairgrounds were the site of the 12th annual Scappoose Boosters’ Spring Chinook Derby on May 4 and like usual, the event was a success for the fishermen, but an even bigger win for Scappoose High School. This year’s event was very

well attended with 257 fishermen from all over the Northwest in attendance. They combined to catch 43 fish. Ron Hembree of St. Helens had the biggest fish of the bunch. He won the $1,000 grand prize with a 19.5-pound spring chinook. Team Jaidyn won the

team prize. Exact figures for how much money the derby raised were not available at press time, but organizer Andi Bradley said this year’s derby had a larger turnout and brought in more money than last year’s. – Josiah Darr

Indians win invitational GEARHART — The Scappoose Indians won the nine-team Seaside Invitational at Gearhart Golf Links on April 29. Scappoose finished with a team score of 350, five strokes ahead of secondplace Seaside. Banks finished third at 358. The Tribe was led by Alex and Tyler Lukinbeal. Alex

Lukinbeal shot an 8-over-par 80. Tyler finished at 88. Following the Lukinbeals were Justin Olbrich (90), Taylor Thomas (92) and Braxton Sue (100). Scappoose coach Steve Hagen said it was a very windy day at the course. “It was a good experience to get ready for districts next week,� Hagen said. “The first

round of districts is at Alderbrook at Tillamook and the final round is at Gearhart.� Scappoose teed off at Alderbrook on May 6 and went back to Gearhart on May 7. Find results from the Cowapa League Championships at – Kyle Boggs

aFrom PAGE A13

“(There were) terrific runners in that elite race and she more than held her own with some of the best runners in the state and nation.� On May 1, Scappoose cruised to a pair of wins over Seaside. The boys won 91.66 to 53.33, and the girls won 76.66-61.33. “We basically rested several athletes as much as we could, especially those that have been carrying the bulk of the load all season,�

Harley said. “The big thing to take away from Seaside was that it was a chance for the varsity athletes to get familiar with the district site and begin to think about heading back down there next week.� Sophomore Asa Flanagan had a double win in the high jump and triple jump. Seven other Tribe boys recorded victories. The girls picked up victories in six individual events from six different athletes and Scappoose won all four

relay races. Scappoose has its final home meet of the season on May 8 against Astoria. Field events begin at 3:30 p.m. and running events start at 4. The Tribe will head to Cottage Grove High School on May 10 for the Wally Ciochetti Invitational. Field events start at 2 p.m. and running events at 5.

LIONS: play sound defense in opener

Lions take third with great back 9 WELCHES — A dazzling back nine at The Resort at the Mountain on April 29 helped the St. Helens Lions boys golf team break away from the middle of the Northwest Oregon Conference pack. Three Lions played the back nine in under 40 strokes as St. Helens finished comfortably in third place. Sherwood won with 302 strokes, followed by Wilsonville at 307. St. Helens’ score of 325 was 21 strokes ahead of fourth-place Parkrose. “Our team score of 325 is our best away from Wildwood in many years, capped by a stupendous back nine which broke us away from the four teams behind us,� said St. Helens coach Dave Lawrence. “The third-place finish puts us solidly in third in the standings

going into districts Monday and Tuesday at The Reserve.� Nathan Hunter, Eric Aldridge and Michael Hewlett were the three SHHS golfers to finish their rounds under 40 on the back nine. Hunter shot a 37 on the back to finish with a team-best 78 on the par-70 course. Aldridge’s 39 over the final nine helped him to a 79 overall. Hewlett had a tough time on the front nine – shooting a team-high 48 – but responded with a 38 on the back nine to end up as the Lions’ No. 4 golfer with an 86. Cody Teyema finished at 82 with 41s on the front and back. The district tournament was May 6-7. Visit for results. – Kyle Boggs

inning and the game.

Defense highlighted game one of the series for the Lions. Spencer made a running, over-the-shoulder catch in right field in the first inning. Stangland, Mosley and Takemoto combined on a pair of 6-4-3 double plays. And there was senior Jake Ramiskey nearly making a tremendous diving grab in left field early on. But those plays didn’t produce the runs the Lions needed to keep up with the Falcons. Ramiskey doubled to lead off the fourth inning, stole third and scored on a groundout from junior Brennan Norton. Takemoto scored later in the inning on a single from Winnier to make it a 6-2 ballgame. Spencer added an RBI in the bottom of the seventh as the Lions tried to mount a late comeback, but a mistake on the basepaths ended the
