Officers cleared in shooting BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
Three law enforcement officers involved in a July 20 shooting in St. Helens have been cleared for return to active duty by the Columbia County District Attorney’s Office. The officers and deputies involved in the shooting were identified as St. Helens Police Sgt. Rick Graham, St. Helens Police Officer Stephanie LaVallee, Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Haas and Columbia County Reserve Deputy Tyler Miller. “Martinez attempted to injure at least two of the officers,” said District Attorney Steve Atchison. “Oregon statute allows for self defense in that situation, for police officers or for anyone.” At just after 2 a.m. on July 20, St. Helens Police received a report of a despondent man – later identified a Rogelio Rodriguez Martinez – armed with a long knife in the 2700 block of Sykes Road, which was the same block as Martinez’s last known address. When the officers arrived at the scene, they were reportedly confronted and threatened by Rodriguez. Deputies from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office were then called in to assist. Despite the presence of the officers, Martinez continued walking down towards the Best Western Inn on Columbia River Highway, which was filled with visitors from the Columbia County Fair and Rodeo. The officers attempted to communicate with Martinez several times to begin negotiations but Martinez remained unresponsive. As the officers attempted to calm Martinez and get him to surrender the knife he was carrying, he advanced on one of the officers. That officer retreated in an effort to put some space between himself and the suspect and to provide the other officers with an opportunity to use a Taser on the suspect. “The shooting was reasonable under the circumstances when less lethal measures failed,” added Atchison. Graham, 48, has served the City of St. Helens since August 1990; LaVallee, 35, has served the City of St. Helens since November 2009; Haas, 32, has served with the Sheriff’s Office since September 2010; and Miller, 29, is a reserve volunteer deputy who has served with the Sheriff’s Office since November 2011.

Firefighters form a line across the burned area to look for smoke or materials still burning.
Local firefighters take advantage of training opportunity BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
With wildfires continuing to blaze a path of destruction through southern Oregon, the importance having local firefighters trained and ready to respond to grass and wildland fires has perhaps never been more important. Firefighters from several agencies in Columbia County recently had the opportunity to get some hands-on training fighting wildfires. Crews from the Scappoose Fire District were joined by Columbia River Fire & Rescue, Sauvie Island Fire Department, Portland Fire and the Oregon Department of Forestry for a controlled burn on JP West Road on Aug. 10. The burn site was about 1 ½ miles up from Veterans Park. A local resident donated the use of their property, which was covered with high grass and blackberry bushes. The original plan was to burn five acres in five segmented burns throughout the weekend, using drip torches filled with a mixture of diesel and gasoline and fusees (a type of flare or friction match used to ignite the fuel source). Scappoose Fire Division Chief Jeff Pricher oversees training for the agency and organized the See FIREFIGHTERS, Page A4

Water rates, usage on city’s radar BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle
SCAPPOOSE — Over the past 10 weeks, Scappoose has seen barely 1 ½ inches of rain. So it should come as little surprise then that city officials are keeping a close eye on water usage and may have to eventually ask residents to curtail their watering activities. The city’s water conservation plan requires voluntary water use reductions when there are projected supply limitations. In a report submitted to the city council, water superintendent Joe Lewis said, “We have reduced the rate of water use from our creeks from 450 (gallons per minute) to 380 (gallons per minute) and may need to further reduce it depending on the creek flows.” The city has 380 gallons per minute available from surface sources, 400 gallons per minute from the Miller Road plant, and 200 gallons per minute from the Dutch Canyon well. The total capacity from all sources is 980 gallons per minute, which is equal to a daily supply of 1,411,200 gallons. When temperatures climbed above 90 degrees recently, water usage in the city also peaked. Since the middle of July, the city saw daily water consumption

rates top more than 1 million gallons of water a day. Under the city’s water conservation plan, the council can call for mandatory water use reductions if consumption reaches 85 percent of capacity for three consecutive days; or 90 percent for two consecutive days. Although city officials
haven’t called for official water conservation measures, City Manager Jon Hanken said it doesn’t hurt to be water wise. Water conservation isn’t the only H20 related topic on the minds of city officials. The city council is once See WATER, Page A4
A new law enacted in 2012 requiring government insurance premiums for property owners in flood-prone areas to be set at higher levels could mean substantially higher bills for local homeowners. Nationwide, the new law will affect more than 5.5 million property owners. Among those property owners will be those who live in flood prone areas like Vernonia, which saw significant flooding and damage during 2007. “Our ratepayers, which are in the 100-year floodplain, typically pay $350 a year for flood insurance. If you have a mortgage, it is going to be mandated by the bank and that rate is going to go up from $350 a year to $4,700 a year,” said Columbia County Commissioner Tony Hyde. “That is not a small increase. That is a tipping point for an awful lot of families.” The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 is working to phase out many of the nation’s subsidized flood
insurance policies. Vacation homes in areas defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as having at least a 1 percent chance of flooding in any given year are already feeling the impact of the new law. Those properties began seeing a 25 percent increase in flood insurance rates beginning Jan. 1. It won’t be long though before other property owners begin to feel the pinch. Starting Oct. 1, properties with repeated or severe flooding and businesses sited in flood zones will see the same kind of increases. “Homeowners aren’t going to have a choice,” said Hyde, “and it’s tantamount to a $400 a month increase in their mortgage payment.” The increases are scheduled to continue until the flood insurance rates are high enough to cover the property’s flood risk. There is some relief for homeowners. Primary residence policyholders will continue to receive subsidized rates unless (or until) the property is sold, the See FLOOD, Page A3

Aug. 8 fire damages home in St. Helens Fire Reports ST. HELENS — A two-story home on Fourth Street sustained heavy damage after a fire broke out on the back porch of the residence on Aug. 8. Fire crews from Columbia River Fire & Rescue responded to 297 N. Fourth Street after receiving a report of a structure fire. Crews arrived to find the older two-story residence with heavy flames rising from the back of the home. Crews went to work fighting the fire and were able to confine it to the building of origin. The fire was declared under control at 9:02 p.m., but fire personnel worked for another two hours to ensure all the hot spots were extinguished. According to Fire Chief Jay Tappan, most of the structural damage was on the west side of the home, but much of that wall had to be torn out to ensure all the areas of fire were extinguished.
Tappan said there was considerable smoke damage to the interior of the home as well. The occupants were at home when the fire broke out and all escaped unharmed. They are listed as Diana Romero, David Hendrickson, and Romero’s four-year-old daughter. Fire officials said residents stated that a cloth covered, stuffed chair on the back porch was first observed to be on fire. The cause is under investigation. The owners of the home are Diana’s parents, Alvin and Tina Hash of St. Helens. CRF&R responded with five fire engines, a rescue unit, and several support vehicles. Scappoose Fire sent a duty officer to assist as well. A total of 20 fire personnel were on scene with no reported injuries. No damage estimates are known at this time and the home was insured.
This home on Fourth Street in St. Helens sustained heavy damage following an Aug. 8 fire.

investment in equipment, and is a formal physical activity that can continue across a lifetime. Youth can lace up their shoes, step out the door and be running, something that’s not always possible with more expensive sports like snowboarding, softball, or football. 4-H stands for “Head,
Heart, Hands and Health.” Organizers believe youth who invest in and grow up participating in physical exercise at an early age, will continue to participate in a healthier lifestyle as they mature. In a society where childhood obesity is a national epidemic and funding for programs that keep
youth moving are being cut, the situation will be getting worse, not better. Recruitment is currently under way in five local communities for leadership in this project area. At this time, St. Helens is the only community that has identified leadership and a starting date for their club. The 4-H Youth Development Program has the history and the ability to help youth set goals, develop life skills and move to a new level, we see this as an opportunity for them to set healthy goals, life skills and reduce the risk of long term health problems later in life. A parent planning and information meeting will be held on Aug. 18, at 6 p.m., at the Columbia County - OSU Extension office. For questions prior to the meeting, call Woody Davis at 503397-3462 or email woody. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Placing Pros now available in Oregon Placing Pros is a national long term care company providing online individual professional reviews of long term care healthcare providers. What makes Placing Pros different? Unlike services that only list providers who pay to be listed or who use statistics provided by long term care providers to assess their performance, Placing Pros has experienced healthcare professionals provide customers with an honest review. Along with the review, they also provide an education on the industry terminology, tips for tour-
ing facilities and statistics to benchmark the facilities. According to the company, a resource often used when looking for long term care, is the Medicare compare five star rating website. However, according to the Medicare.gov website, “All of these data are reported by the nursing homes themselves. Nursing home inspectors review it, but don’t formally check it to ensure accuracy. The information should be interpreted cautiously and used along with information from the long term care ombudsman’s office, the state survey Agency,
or other source.” Melissa Reed, an owner of Placing Pros who also hold a master’s degree in social work and is a practicing licensed nursing home administrator, recommends individuals looking for long term care or residing in a long term care placements to read her blog and stay up to date with the latest national and state headlines in long term care. “When benchmarking Oregon to other states a higher user of catheters, individuals bedfast and higher unplanned weight loss were a few things noticed,” said Reed. “These
statistics along with requests for services encouraged Placing Pros to expand to the State of Oregon.” Oregon has approximately 7,388 residents residing in 139 nursing home facilities throughout the state with only a 60 percent-average occupancy rate. For more information, go to PlacingPros.com.

It looks like the Columbia County 4-H youth development program will welcome back the Strider 4-H running club for its third year. The Striders program will allow sixth, seventh and eighth grade youth to participate in middle school cross-country meets. The program will provide an opportunity for younger runners to compete against others, a gap created when the St. Helens School District cut middle school sports. Participants will also be able to participate in “open” events throughout the year. The program is open to youth in grades 4–12 who are able to train with the group and run the open events at all the meets except the Middle School State XC finals in October. Why a 4-H running club?

WATER: rates too low, income too high for grants From PAGE A1
SHARI PHIEL / The Chronicle
Firefighters use hand tools like the Pulaski to search for hot spots.
FIREFIGHTERS: even with the low chance of fire, trained crews are necessary during area’s driest months From PAGE A1
training event. “There are several reasons why we do these burns. One, obviously, is to remove hazardous fuels,” said Pricher. “Firefighters get a lot of training but they don’t get a lot of opportunities to use their skills, so this is a controlled environment in which we have firefighters from all levels – whether it be from the guy on the ground digging with the Pulaski all the way up to the supervisors who have to manage the crews – an opportunity to do so with live fire.” Preparing the site for the controlled burn took weeks. Along with mowing down a “moat” around the planned burn areas, crews also put in control lines and contingency lines, which included digging hand lines around the areas.
Once the firefighting crews completed a couple of the planned burns, Pricher conducted a review of the event asking four questions: What was planned; What actually happened; What could be done better next time; and What did we do well? The questions are designed to help crews focus on their strengths, learn where improvements can be made and to then implement those improvements. Once the crews were done, the burn areas were then patrolled for 72 hours after the fires were extinguished to ensure none of the area burned re-ignited. Even the training exercise itself proved there’s no way to plan for every possibility. After completing some of the scheduled burns, the decision was made to postpone the remaining burn exercises
until Wednesday, Aug. 14, after the district received calls from residents in the Dutch Canyon area about smoke coming into their homes. “We went up and investigated it. It’s kind of interesting because no matter how much weather forecasting we do – and actually getting a spot weather forecast from the National Weather Service for that exact spot – nobody was able to predict the inversion layer that occurred and caused the smoke to bank down in the area,” said Pricher. Although the kind of fires seen moving through the southern part of the state are far less likely in northwest Oregon, there is still a need for trained crews. August and September are typically the driest months of the year in Columbia County. That dry weather can – and sometimes does – lead to grass and
wildfires. “Starting right about now through September, is our most active time,” said Columbia River Fire Chief Jay Tappan. “Last year that extended through the first week of October. They’re typically not real big ones. We’ve had a few five to 10 acres ones.” But even those smaller fires have multiple agencies responding to them. “Anything like that and (Oregon Department of Forestry) is automatically called,” added Tappan. “We usually call Scappoose as well.” But even after working together on a regular basis, the crews found there were still lessons to be learned and room for improvement. “A lot of it has to do with the unpredictability of fire,” Tappan noted.
considering a proposal to increase rates. “There is a proposed water rate increase and there is a proposed sewer rate increase. The water rate increase is to cover expenditures related to debt service and to deferred maintenance, primarily,” said Hanken. “One of the things we having staring at us in the near future is that we have about eight miles of water line from dams up in the hills to our water plant that all need to be replaced.” Hanken noted that because surface sources are one of the city’s primary sources of water, the lines responsible for shuttling that water become equally important. The city has several surface water sources: Gurley Creek, the south fork of Scappoose Creek and Lacey Creek. Those are in addition to well sources off Dutch Canyon Road and Miller Road. Replacing those miles of water line won’t come cheaply. The project could ultimately carry a price tag close to $10 million. “Our water rates are too low and our median incomes are too high for us to get any grants. So we have to find other funding sources,” said Hanken, noting those other sources will likely come down to getting loans. Along with replacing the water lines, the city is also looking at replacing and moving the sewer line under the bridge on JP West Road near Veterans Park. The bridge is being replaced and widened by the county, which means the existing sewer line will be in the way. The total cost for the project is estimated at $900,000. The city has about $200,000 in reserves it can put to the project, leaving officials with another $700,000 to come up with. Currently, residential and commercial customers pay a monthly rate that ranges from $15.70 to $450.80, plus an additional 38 cents per 100 gallons of water used. The new rates would mark the first time since 2003
Water conservation ideas Restrict landscape watering to the hours between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m., except new lawn, grass or turf that has been seeded within the last 90 days. Don’t hose or wash sidewalks, driveways, streets, parking lots, etc., except where necessary for public health or safety. Don’t wash cars, boats, trailers, or other vehicles without using a shut-off nozzle. Wash vehicles at commercial or fleet facilities using waterrecycling equipment. Provide drinking/serving water at restaurants, motels, cafeterias, or other public places where food is sold or served only when expressly requested. Restrict cleaning buildings (walls or roof) to preparation for painting only. Use bottled water stored in the refrigerator instead of running the tap to obtain cold water. Consider installing more efficient appliances such as low water-consumption stools and taking showers instead of tub baths. that the city has raised the fixed cost portion of the rate structure. The other piece of the expenditure puzzle is debt service (the amount of cash required to cover principal and interest). “When the economy tanked, building permits stopped and so did our (system development charges) revenues. Those SDC revenues went to cover a lot of loans to build infrastructure. When you don’t get the SDC revenues, it comes to water rates.” A public hearing is scheduled for Aug.19 in council chambers at 7 p.m.

Letters Up a creek This will be short but sweet. With all this talk about equality and discrimination, the State of Oregon lacks one thing. Our state has completely overlooked one very common group of people. We do not recognize common law marriage. I was married for 20 years. We have now been divorced for five years. We still live together as “husband and wife.” If anything were to happen to my “husband” or to me, the other would be up a creek without a paddle. We could not make health decisions or burial plans. If there are others out there who are in the same situations as we are, please write your state senators and representatives. Donna Rodrigue, Scappoose Columbia County Jail needs money Make no mistake, it is our jail and we, the residents and business owners of Columbia County, have a duty to ensure it’s continued operation. The jail helps to make our neighborhoods of St. Helens, Scappoose, Vernonia, Rainier, Clatskanie,
Columbia City, and all of the rural areas safer. I can’t tell you how many times I am told “We don’t have jail beds for locals because Dickerson rents most of them to outside agencies.” Folks this is simply not true. There are currently 140 empty beds in the jail that we cannot use because the jail doesn’t have enough staff (mandated by law) to fill those beds. Almost 2/3 of the jail’s money comes from renting beds, those “outsiders” are subsidizing us locals and without them we wouldn’t have a jail. We would have an empty building. Our old jail had 38 beds in it; we built the new jail and moved due to overcrowding 13 years ago. Today we have only 25 beds reserved for locals, we lost 40 beds on July 1 due to a $400,000 budget cut. Have you paid attention to the weekly Forced Release notices that have been in the paper lately? The folks being let out are not committing “victimless” crimes. One man sentenced for domestic assault and manufacture of methamphetamine served only
one day out of 30. Another sentenced to 20 days for burglary and theft walked out of jail after only two days. One of these days it will be you, or someone you care about that has a chainsaw or even a car stolen. Sadly, maybe a kid you know will be sold methamphetamines by one of these criminals who should have still been in jail, and even worse you still see this criminal walking or driving down your street without a care in the world, because we don’t have a jail to keep him in. This doesn’t even take into account criminals coming into our county to do their business, right now we can’t even take care of our homegrown criminals properly. This is a call to my fellow residents to get educated and spread the word. If you’re on Facebook like the Keep Prisoners In Jail page or visit www.keepprisonersinjail.org. If you are able donate some money to the Keep Prisoners In Jail PAC to help us spread the word to our less connected friends and neighbors. Thank you, Melvin Moore St. Helens
Creating the postal service our communities deserve BY JAMIE PARTRIDGE Retired Postal Carrier
Internet available in post office lobbies; 24-hour/7days a week lobby access; same day pick-up and delivery: these are just some of the services our small town post offices could provide if the people just took a notion. In my travels around Oregon, engaging with communities in the struggle to save post offices from closure, reduction of hours and privatization, I’ve noticed
some remarkable ways that rural towns make use of our constitutionally-guaranteed postal service. Book and tool-lending libraries. Clothing exchanges. Informal arrangements with the trusted letter carriers to pick up something in town. People get creative. Looking around the world, we discover that post offices and letter carriers provide a great many services, some of which we could implement here today, town by town. All post offices, no matter how remote, have
broadband Internet access, often through satellite. Many remote communities would benefit from Wi-Fi access in their post office lobby. Post offices can serve as one-stop government centers, providing not just passports but fishing and hunting licenses, national park passes, driver’s license renewal, registration for Social Security and other benefits. In various countries, people pay their utility bills at the post office as well as using notary, copying and wire transfer services. The postal services in
Sweden and Switzerland provide connectivity between Internet and paper communications, scanning paper mail and delivering the digital image to your postal email box or the reverse, printing email documents and delivering the hard copy to your home or business. Letter carriers today often look in on the frail and elderly, especially if mail is piling up in their box. Imagine family members contracting with letter carriers to look in on their elderly parent on a regular basis. Imagine organizing
regular same-day pick-up and delivery for local businesses – it’s already happening on a pilot basis in some cities. Of course, many expanded services would require national action. Postal banking is common throughout the world, is a needed resource in many neighborhoods and communities, and can provide an important revenue stream for the postal service. The national census could be conducted more efficiently and effectively by the postal service. Seven-day delivery, evening and 24-hour postal
retail services, postage payment through smart phones (your’s and/or the letter carrier’s) are all possible with national action. Many of these ideas for improved postal products and services are already contained in Congressman Peter DeFazio’s House Bill 630 (S 316 on the Senate side), the “Postal Service Protection Act of 2013”, which also fixes postal finances.

Couple opens newest auto dealership in Scappoose BY DON PATTERSON The Chronicle
SCAPPOOSE — Longtime Columbia County residents Marty and Lori Holmason have opened a business selling cars & trucks in Scappoose. MAPS Auto Center is located at the site of a former car lot on Highway 30 just south of High School Way. Marty Holmason said the couple plans to stock 40 to 50 vehicles priced from about $5,000 to $30,000. All of the vehicles will be inspected for safety. “We want to carry what the other two guys don’t,” he said, referring to the two Columbia County new car dealerships. For the Holmasons, that means imports including Subarus, Volkswagens and Toyota Tundra pickups. “Tundras are hot,”
Lori Holmason said. For Marty, the business is a wish fulfilled. A 20-year veteran of the auto business, he started on his own in 1992, as the proprietor and sole employee of an auto detail shop. He soon gained a reputation for quickly finishing his detailing jobs and earned the nickname “Marty McFly” after the character in the popular 1980’s movie “Back to the Future.” He also caught the attention of Ken Waite, then owner of Mountain View Motors and the local GM dealer. “Ken Waite gave me the opportunity (to sell). He was the good guy that gave me an opportunity,” Marty Holmason recalls. Marty Holmason said he left his former job, selling cars and trucks at a dealership, in January. He said it took about two months to make the decision to go

He hasn’t regretted the move to go into business for himself. And he offers encouragement for people thinking of starting a busi-

own business. MAPS is essentially a one-man show, he said, with no salespeople and no managers, although Lori does help out with financing and DMV paperwork. “You’re dealing with the owner,” he said. The lack of staff also keeps overhead low allowing him to sell his vehicles for less, he said. Marty Holmason said he doesn’t mind working six days a week because he’s working for himself. He also has a soft spot for his roots. A young man, Justin Pellham, has just started a small business in the shop building at the back of the lot. The name of that shop is Pellham’s Professional Detailing Service. Marty and Lori Holmason or Justin Pellham can be reached at MAPS Auto Center, 51801 S. Columbia River Hwy. in Scappoose.

Luther graduated from Oklahoma A& M in 1953 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. Shortly thereafter he enlisted in the U.S. Army in the anti-aircraft and guided missiles branch in Fort Bliss, Texas. He was a Private First Class. He was introduced to
Meet Columbia County’s new dairy princess ambassador Kiara Single, the daughter of John and Suzie Single of Warren, has been crowned as the next Columbia County Dairy Princess ambassador. Single attends Portland Community College, through Estacada Early College program and will obtain a high school diploma in 2014. She also earns college credits toward an associate’s degree at PCC’s Rock Creek campus. The new ambassador was also at the recent Columbia County Fair presenting awards at the Dairy Show. Single is also active in 4-H, showing poultry, goats, plus displaying photography, fiber arts, foods and nutrition. Besides 4-H, she earned two varsity letters for swimming and volunteers with Grace Baptist Church camp programs, serves on the Youth Leadership Team and is involved in other community service. She is also employed part-time as an assistant at Lil’ Learners Preschool. Single was crowned at
Eddie Blanche Wells at a friend’s, where they both were invited to dinner. Their romance developed and they were married on Jan 13, 1956, in El Paso, Texas. After his honorable discharge from the military on June 17, 1955, Luther did some teaching before he took a job with Philco. Before leaving El Paso, his first two children were born: Lawrence Craig and Luther Wayne in 1957 and 1959. Luther’s job with Philco moved him to Santa Maria, Calif. In 1963 Luther started working for Lockheed Missiles and Space as an aerospace engineer. In Santa Maria, his next two children were born: LaVena Beth and Curtis Lydon, in 1960 and 1962. Luther worked for Lockheed for 26 years and was promoted numerous times. His job transferred him to Aurora, Colo., in 1973 and Redondo Beach, Calif., in 1983 where he retired from Lockheed in 1989. After Lockheed he took a job with Hughes Aircraft where he
worked for five years before retiring for good in 1994. Luther and Blanche followed their daughter to Oregon in 1994. They lived in Scappoose for five years before building a house in the Yankton area in 1999. Luther was successful and gifted in many ways. He had his real estate license, he was an airplane pilot, he built two homes, he was a singer and he loved his wife and children. He always talked about putting in a landing strip on his property as he always hoped to have his own airplane. He was thrilled when Elroy Olsen offered to take him up in his plane where they flew over Luther’s lovely property. He even took the controls briefly. His life was full and rich as he loved people and loved to visit with everyone he came in contact with. Some of his errands and shopping trips turned into hours because he needed to see everyone at Safeway or the credit union before he could return home. He knew everyone by name and relished
those relationships. That was the hardest thing when his health kept him from seeing the people he loved. Luther’s faith in God was steadfast even in the hardest of times. He loved gospel music and took comfort in it during his final days. God was gracious to give him extra time to see his 83rd birthday, and his granddaughter’s wedding in July this year, where he was visited by many and which thrilled him greatly. Luther is survived by his wife, Blanche, of 57 years; sons Wayne and Curtis; daughter LaVena and her husband Kevin; daughterin-law Teri Cowling; 12 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Luther and Minnie Lee; siblings Cecil, Lois, Ruby and Verma Lee; and son Lawrence Craig Cowling. Luther’s Celebration of Life will be Aug. 24, at 2 p.m., at Columbia River Foursquare Church, 555 Commons Drive in St. Helens. All who knew Daddy are welcome to attend.

Every year Portland General Electric recognizes the outstanding volunteerism of three employees who have gone above and beyond in their steadfast commitment to their communities, and the 2013 Outstanding Volunteers are no exception. This year’s winners are Candy Cole, a PGE retiree living in Warren, Rod Haines, a PGE dispatcher; and Karla Wenzel, a rates and regulatory affairs manager in Portland. “The tireless dedication and generosity our outstanding volunteers bring their organizations is inspiring, and PGE is proud to contribute to their efforts,” said Dave Robertson, PGE vice president of public policy. PGE awarded $500 grants to each of the honored employees in their names to the charities of their choice. In 2000, Candy Cole retired after working 14 years at PGE due to worsening multiple sclerosis symptoms. Cole’s retirement ultimately allowed her to devote more time and energy to serving her community members. Cole founded the Scappoose Parents Association in 2003 while witnessing the damage budget cuts were creating in

the Scappoose School District. She volunteers her time and grant-writing skills to the Portland-based Remodeling for Independence Together, ReFIT, which raises funds to remodel the homes of lowincome seniors and people with disabilities. Cole also volunteers with her daughter at the Mother & Child Education Center in Portland’s Hollywood District, which provides supplies and classes to parents and expecting parents. When Rod Haines found his mother and friends were being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, he wanted to help. Haines utilized his athletic mind and network of friends to start Burpees4MS. Burpees4MS is an exercise challenge Haines created to benefit the Oregon Chapter of the National MS Society. Haines performs burpees – a full body exercise – every day to raise money for MS research. Burpees4MS was founded in 2012 with a fundraising goal of $10,000. Haines ended the first year with more than $28,000 and hopes to raise $50,000 in 2013 by inviting more
athletes to participate across the nation and the globe. When Karla Wenzel was a child living in her mother’s home in suburban Washington D.C., her family spent Saturday mornings volunteering at their local recycling center where she grew a passion for volunteerism. Wenzel serves on the board of the Oregon Food Bank where she recently helped the organization move their governance to electronic and mobile platforms. She also has served on the boards of Portland Public Schools, the Kinship House, and the Humane Society of the Willamette Valley. In addition Wenzel donates time to the YWCA of Greater Portland, SOLVE beach cleanups and Classroom Law Project mock trial program. In the Outstanding Volunteer program’s 10th year, PGE employees and community leaders nominated 59 individuals. Community members are invited to nominate individuals for this yearly award at www. PortlandGeneral.com/volunteer.

Help stuff the bus Everyone knows that flashing red lights on a school bus means stop. But for the United Way of Columbia County, red means go… go to the nearest school supply store and help “Stuff the Bus.” The start of school might seem like it’s still a long way off, but families are already stocking their kid’s backpack with all the necessary items for starting school. The costs can add up in a hurry, To help with those costs, the United Way of Columbia County is hosting its eighth annual “Stuff the Bus” promotion to benefit students in need throughout Columbia County. Through a united effort, last year the United Way of Columbia County helped over 650 children through the program. The group is asking everyone to participate in the promotion, which runs from July 30 through
the end of August. Just look for the official drop site signs in the windows of local businesses. They will have boxes available for donated school supplies. School supplies stay in the community where they are donated to help the children in need. Local volunteers help pick up the supplies and deliver them to distribution sites. Be sure to check out the school supply lists at local stores for donation ideas. For more information about the United Way, go to UnitedWayofColumbiaCounty.com. Donations of school supplies will be at: Turning Point in Clatskanie; Fultano’s in Clatskanie; United Way in Rainier; Country Financial in Rainier; MPC Digital in Rainier; Deli Store & More in Rainier; Hope of Rainier in Rainier; Columbia River PUD in

Volunteers sought for Sauvie Island advisory committee Multnomah County is seeking volunteers for a new advisory committee that will help inform decision making for an update to the Sauvie Island/Multnomah Channel Rural Area Plan and Transportation System Plan. The plans will inform area policies, zoning code updates and transportation improvements for a 20-plus year planning horizon. The Community Advisory Committee (CAC) will include community stakeholders representing a variety of interests and viewpoints. CAC members will provide representation for county residents and stakeholders who may be affected by the land use and transportation planning effort. Community input is a key value for Multnomah County leaders in helping to shape and inform decisions. Committee members will be expected to represent the interests of their area or group independent of personal views, and seek input on issues as they arise in the process. The planning effort is in response to a scoping effort completed in the
spring of 2013 that resulted in a recommendation to update the plans (see https:// multco.us/simc-planning). The CAC will be involved in a variety of topics including but not limited to, promotional activities and events on Exclusive Farm Use lands, agri-tourism, permitting at moorages and marinas, traffic and roads, bike facilities, recreation, wildlife and habitat protections, and outdoor mass gatherings. Policy choices will be made within the context of existing state, federal, and county policies, laws and initiatives. A limited number of seats on the committee are available. County staff will begin reviewing applications after Aug. 16 and contact interested parties soon after. An application form is located online and more information about the project is available at https://multco.us/simcplanning. Individuals interested in serving should complete and submit the form by 4 p.m., Aug. 16. The project is expected to run for 10 months with a goal of being completed by June 2014.

wouldn’t affect cars, patios or furniture. • Washing off aphids repeatedly. This clearly won’t work on big trees and is a somewhat marginal strategy unless done often. • Spraying with insecticidal soaps can be helpful on vegetables and flowers. These soaps work best on soft-bodies insects like aphids, but must get on the aphids themselves. Thus, you must get the spray under the leaves, in the new growth and on the stems where the aphids are. Otherwise, you just clean their feet. • There are several insecticides, both organic and conventional, that provide decent aphid control. However, they may damage pollinators or other beneficial insects so use thoughtfully. Call me if you have questions. The bottom line on aphids is to be vigilant and treat beginning infestations before they get out of hand.
that these insects don’t do well in cold, wet springs. We were primed for a good moth year until the drenching rains the last two weeks of May. The cinnabar moth caterpillars are around. Look for them on tansy, an annual weed called goundsel, and on an ornamental called dusty miller. All of these plants are Senecio species. Last year, I saw a number of very small caterpillars on the extensive plantings of dusty miller at the CRPUD office. I told the CRPUD manager that the caterpillar feeding was a good thing and we all appreciated their efforts in the fight to manage tansy ragwort. The flea beetle has a much longer recovery time than the cinnabar moth, but signs of leaf feeding on plants that will bloom in 2014 is encouraging and a sign that their numbers are increasing. Farms can lower their tansy problem by keeping their pastures vigorous. Tansy prefers bare spots to

garden plots was almost gone. But because of the insects narrow feeding preferences, insect populations dropped dramatically. This was expected. As tansy recovered, the insects recovered a few years later and knocked the tansy back again. That oscillation of tansy and moth/flea beetle populations continued for a number of years. One year, I looked all over the place and couldn’t find a tansy plant to use in a county fair display. But plants are a bit more resilient than insects. About eight years ago, tansy began to recover. While populations are nowhere near those of the ’60s and ’70s, they have become quite noticeable. The expected increase of the cinnabar moth has not happened as fast as it has in the past. The caterpillars pupate in the fall, the cocoons lie around the soil over the winter, and the adult moths emerge in the late spring to mate and lay their eggs on tansy. The best evidence is

Tansy ragwort, again Tansy ragwort is putting on quite a display right now. Pastures, roadsides, and forest clearcuts are dotted with their brilliant yellow flowers. As you may be aware, tansy ragwort was introduced Chip Bubl into the Pacific Northwest in the late 1920s in Tillamook (by ship from France) and it spread west of the Cascades over the next several decades. By the 1960s, many poorly managed western Oregon fields were covered in the plant. Cattle and horses consumed tansy, especially in the spring when the pastures were lush. Because they (though not sheep or goats) are very susceptible to tansy ragwort’s liver damaging properties, it became imperative that management solutions beyond herbicides be found. Biologists searched for insects and diseases that were specific to tansy ragwort in its native landscape. Ultimately two insects, the cinnabar moth and the tansy flea beetle, were cleared for release in the United States. To be a good candidate for release, the insects would have to have a very narrow range of plants they feed on. Basically, they would have to be willing to die rather than feed on a plant not tansy ragwort or a very close relative. These two insects began to work back tansy ragwort populations so that by the mid-1980s, tansy ragwort

Vegas trip strengthens bond BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
In-N-Out Burger, the bright lights of Las Vegas and basketball. For a lot of teenage boys, that’s the ideal summer vacation. For a dozen St. Helens High School basketball players, that’s how July ended. The Lions spent June playing a high school-sanctioned summer league, then played in a few AAU tournaments during July. The second half of the summer was a change from the past, when St. Helens players would join different AAU teams with players from other schools. The AAU schedule allowed the team to face a higher level of competition. In July, the team played in tournaments at Liberty High School, in the Seattle area, then capped the summer with four games in Vegas. “We’re a lot better than we were. We played like 30 games together over the course of a couple weeks, so we got a ton better,” said Gage Bumgardner, who will be a senior at SHHS in the fall. Playing together wasn’t new for everyone: The team took seven incoming seniors to Las Vegas, as well as three sophomores and two juniors. Learning one another’s style was a big benefit of the summer season. “We had a great experience, formed as a team,” said Tanner Long, the team’s starting point guard as a junior last winter. “But as for the games, we went 1-3 and we finished fourth in the Silver Bracket. We did all right.” St. Helens lost the first of those four games to a team from Los Angeles, 50-29. That put the L.A. team into the Gold Bracket and St. He-

ence.” They could see most of the buildings from the top of their hotel – the Stratosphere. “The view on the Stratosphere was pretty crazy,” Bumgardner said. When pressed for a favorite place to visit, Long and Bumgardner agreed that it was one of the smaller buildings they came across. “In-N-Out was probably the highlight of the trip,” Long said. “We went there probably five times,” Bumgardner said. To get there, they learned that teamwork isn’t only important on the basketball court. With taxis running their meters upward of $20 per trip, making room for an extra teammate in the cab became much easier. That fit in nicely with the theme of the summer, as the veteran players learned how to work the newcomers into the fold. They now have a much better understanding of how one another likes to operate, and that should help them out when the season begins in late November. “A lot of those younger guys got playing time, so they’ll be ready for a varsity game,” Bumgardner said. While there’s still room to improve, it’s apparent the summer program accomplished its goal of creating camaraderie and making the team better. “We saw moments of brilliance where we can compete with anybody. Then there were some times we’re not doing the little things we need to do. And that comes with experience,” Poorman said. During the summer, there aren’t too many better experiences than competing with your friends against some of the top programs during the day, then soaking up Las Vegas.
Adapting to the persistent & public nature of Project: You KYLE BOGGS / The Chronicle
From left, Janee Stai, Brian Pixley and Shanna Duggan have committed to drastically changing their eating and exercise habits over the next six months. BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
early two months ago, we introduced you to Project: You, NW Premier Fitness’s free fitness overhaul program. The three candidates have now been selected: Shanna Duggan of St. Helens, Brian Pixley of Scappoose and Janee Stai of Warren. They began their road toward improved fitness recently. NW Premier Fitness used social networking to introduce the trio to its community. By doing so, these individuals’ faces are put out there: People know exactly what their goals are and are able to track their successes and failures. The Chronicle caught up with them following their first week of Project: You to see how things are going, why they decided to take on the challenge, and what they’ve encountered so far. Shanna Duggan There were a couple of reasons in place for Duggan beginning Project: You. The first, she said, was her kids. “I have three children, two daughters
that are very athletic and I want to make sure they know it’s OK to reach their goals and to have to work out to reach those goals,” she said. “If you gain a few pounds, it’s OK because there are things you can do to get rid of them and reach your goals.” She said when she embarked on her own weight loss program in February, she began to stagnate after a while. So when NW Premier Fitness co-owner Simon Date told Duggan about the project, she jumped at the opportunity. Now that it’s known she’s taking part in this program, Duggan is beginning to learn more about how her acquaintances have either shed weight or stayed in shape. “They’re coming up to me with their personal stories about how they got in shape or how they maintain. It’s not everybody just sitting around and being in shape. Some of us just have to start from square one and work a little harder,” she said. Square one for Duggan means going to classes in the evening, then doing 9:15 p.m. personal training sessions on top of that. In between, she shuffles shuttling her daughters to soccer prac-
tices and preparing dinner for the family. Those dinners, she said, have changed… at least for her. “I cut out pasta, and potato chips. I added a lot more fish and protein, egg whites,” she said. And to ensure she’s not tempted to grab a quick and easy unhealthy snack, she’s sure to prepare healthy foods for the week so they’re readily available in the fridge. Brian Pixley In his first seven days following the Project: You regimen, Pixley shed seven pounds. For a lot of people, that would be an encouraging sign. Pixley, however, isn’t sold on himself quite yet. “It’s the first week. We’ll be able to tell if I’m doing good next week,” he said. “It’s always easier in the beginning.” The beginning of this program represents a shift for Pixley, who said he’s never been shown how to live a healthy lifestyle. In fact, his introductory video for the project came while he was sipping on a large soda from McDonald’s.

SHHS has a new tradition on its hands BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle
ST. HELENS — Traditions don’t sprout up frequently. On Aug. 8, however, a few dozen soccer players – past and present – started what looks to be a new one at St. Helens High School. This year’s SHHS girls soccer team worked for a 2-1 win against a team of St. Helens alumni. It was the first Lion alumni game, and coach Simon Date plans on it becoming an annual event. “The whole goal of having it was not just to celebrate the older kids, but more a case just to bring that community feel to the soccer program. We never had an alumni game. I’m a big believer in once you’ve left the school, you can still contribute,” Date said. “It’s twofold: Giving them sort of a heads-up that we haven’t forgotten them, and hopefully they won’t forget us.” Plenty of alums were ready to get back on the pitch. Alumni coach Stu Katz shuffled 20 players in and out of the lineup. While most of the team consisted of recent graduates – six players graduated in June – there were a few that graduated in the 1990s as well. The elder squad made the high schoolers put up a fight, as the teams entered halftime tied 0-0. Early on in the second half, Stevie Strawn and Ashley Giesbers each scored to put the high school team up 2-0. Brie Maye, a 2013 grad, scored for the alumni team. “The old guys, they surprised me. I was surprised how competitive they’d be,” Date said. One of the more intriguing one-on-one matchups of the evening came between Makenna Ridenour and her mom, Hyla Ridenour. “We put Makenna on her mom to battle her. It got a little physical,” Date said. Another good matchup was
7 MILE WAR GAMES THIS WEEK
The St. Helens and Scappoose high school girls soccer teams will play each other twice this week. The first is Aug. 14 at 6 p.m. at either Chinook Field or the Scappoose Middle School field. The second game will be at 6 p.m. on Aug. 16 at SHHS. There is a voluntary admission fee of one school supply item per person. These supplies will be donated to a local day care or preschool.
between Alex Collins – class of 2011 – and Giesbers, an allleague forward last fall. “Alex Collins matched up great against Ashley. (Collins) was great, the speed is definitely still there,” Date said. If the athleticism and competitiveness from the alumni didn’t surprise the high school team, the lack of a home-field advantage certainly did. About 100 people turned out to watch the game, with the majority of them cheering for the alumni squad. “Every time we got the ball they’d boo us. That was kinda cool,” Date said. “It was nice to see there was a lot of cheering.” The jeering was in jest, as it appeared the officiating may have been at times as well. Kenny Katz, who graduated in 2010, served as the referee. After receiving some “foul and abusive language” from his sister Amanda Katz (class of 2012) he issued her the first yellow card of her life. The familial interaction goes along nicely with the sense of community Date is hoping to cultivate with this event. All in all, Date said, the event was a success.

SAYS: EATING RIGHT IS IMPORTANT FITNESS TIPS
This week, I want to talk about dieting. Itâ€™s the second week of this new column, and so as we progress we should probably cover the main pitfalls of working out right from the Simon Date start. Last week we talked about motivation, and the doâ€™s and donâ€™ts of starting an exercise program, so here weâ€™ll talk about one of the most overlooked aspects of working out. We get a lot of folks in the gym here in Scappoose, and they bust their tails week in and week out at boot camp, Zumba, spinning and the classes we offer. As we chat after class, or during a break, I often hear that despite all the working out they do, they canâ€™t seem to shift their weight, get more definition, or achieve whatever goal it is they are looking to get. If I was to generalize the issue for them, I would say that in 95 percent of these cases, diet is the main issue. Think about it: There are 168 hours in a week. Letâ€™s say you work out every day for an hour. EVERY day, without skipping! Thatâ€™s just four percent of your week that is taken up by exercise. While an hour a day is great, that leaves a lot of pressure on what else youâ€™re doing during the other 96 percent of the time. Your diet, and what you do outside of working out is hugely important. At NW Premier Fitness weâ€™re big into eating right,
obviously. We hate the word â€œdiet,â€? as it implies starvation of some sort. (You ever stop and wonder why the first three letters spell the word â€œdieâ€??). You have to treat your body like a campfire and feed it good food regularly to make it function properly. If you donâ€™t feed it enough it will never get powerful. Throw too much on it all at once, and it will be smothered and go out. But if you continue to feed it a good regular amount of â€œwoodâ€? that it can burn efficiently before you throw the next lot on, it will grow into a great fire. So it is with your diet. Most people make three common mistakes with their diet. The first is they starve themselves thinking if they eat less, theyâ€™ll obviously lose weight. This is a fallacy. Your body is incredibly smart. When you starve it, it knows that. It will kick into starvation mode and hold on to every ounce of fat and tissue it can for as long as it can. If you donâ€™t eat, you wonâ€™t lose weight. When eventually you do start to lose weight, itâ€™s very unhealthy because your body will start to consume itself, and the muscle mass. The second mistake is over-eating. Portion control is very important. Going back to the fire analogy, you donâ€™t want to smother it. Just give your body enough fuel to function regularly, and it will learn that it has a constant supply of nutrition coming in, and it wonâ€™t hesitate to burn it. Train your body not to gorge on meals. A great rule we use is the â€œRule of Fist.â€? Your stomach is about the size of your
clenched fist...itâ€™s OK, go ahead â€“ we know youâ€™re looking at your fist right now! When youâ€™re giving yourself a serving size on your plate, imagine if you pressed all that food together. Try to make it about the size of your fist. Lastly, is obviously WHAT you eat! Weâ€™ll cover more on this later this month, but â€œyou are what you eatâ€? has never been more true! Read labels, know what youâ€™re putting into your body. Avoid excess sugar, trans fats, and high sodium meals. We could fill this Chronicle with food ideas, but itâ€™s really not difficult. Eat your vegetables and fruits. If it grew in the ground, or had a mother, then itâ€™s almost always good to eat. Shop around the exterior of the store and not down the middle aisles. Think about itâ€Ś thatâ€™s where the veggies, meats, and good stuff are! The center aisles are always filled with cookies, pizzas, frozen foods, etc. Not great! Remember, your workout results depend a lot on exercise. But from an importance standpoint, your diet will play a far greater role in your success than working out ever will. Good luck this week with your progress, and if you have any questions at all, please donâ€™t hesitate to drop in, call, or shoot us an email!

If I put it off, I wonâ€™t do it,â€? he said.
Fast food, as well as frozen treats, are on the way out for Pixley though. â€œMy vice is pizza and ice cream,â€? he said. â€œIâ€™m cutting down on my carbs, just trying to eat better in general.â€? Thatâ€™s part of what has helped the Columbia County Sheriffâ€™s deputy drop a pound a day early on in the program. The other part, he says, is the recognition thatâ€™s come with NW Premier Fitness plastering videos and Facebook posts online. â€œFor me, that kinda makes it easier. You are in the public eye; people are going to see if you succeed or fail. It makes it a little easier,â€? he said. As a deputy, committing to a firm workout schedule is a challenge. To try circumventing that dilemma, he plugs all the workouts into the calendar on his phone. â€œIf something doesnâ€™t work out, I find the next one.
A fundraiser for the Chief Ralph Painter Memorial Scholarship Foundation will be held on Aug. 24. It is a one-day co-ed softball tournament at McCormick Park. The tournament is open to all teams. Anyone wishing to enter a team into the tournament should contact Pete Lim at 503-396-8426 or Martin Scheer at 971-225-3590. Proceeds from the memorial run go into a scholarship fund in Chief Painterâ€™s name for deserving high school seniors in Columbia County.
Janee Stai Already Stai has found herself somewhat of a celebrity. Because of the web exposure, sheâ€™s become recognized at the store. â€œThere were a few people in Fred Meyer. At first I kinda forgot why they were talking to me. Iâ€™m like, â€˜Do I know them?â€™ I was being friendly and nice, then realized after a few minutes,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s a reminder.â€? Chances are if people run into Stai in the grocery store again, sheâ€™ll be in the produce section. â€œIâ€™ve cut out fried foods and cut out potato chips. Iâ€™ve been adding a lot more fruit,â€? she said. â€œI love fruit, but I was too lazy to go get fresh fruit every week. Iâ€™ve added a lot more fruit and veggies.â€? Like Duggan, Stai wasnâ€™t only thinking of herself when she decided to make this commitment. She has an 18-
month-old son who factored into her decision. â€œIâ€™m gonna be 50 when heâ€™s 10. I want to be able to go wakeboarding with him, hiking. Of course Iâ€™m doing it for myself too, but I have a little guy to keep up with,â€? Stai said. Sheâ€™s also seen great gains â€“ or, losses, rather â€“ in the first week, dropping more than one-percent body fat and four pounds. â€œIâ€™m surprised. I think it shows my food choices are making a difference,â€? she said. What she eats isnâ€™t the only choice Staiâ€™s made, but also when she eats. Prior to joining Project: You, she was a latenight snacker. Now, she says she doesnâ€™t eat after 10 p.m. That, along with getting in front of a video camera for her check-ins, have been the toughest challenge for her yet. The Chronicle will continue to regularly track the progress of Project: You.
