Economic team welcomes new director COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia County Economic Team’s board has named a new executive director to replace former director David Stocker, who left Chuck Daughtry near the end of last year. Chuck Daughtry, who most recently served as general manager for the Port of Cascade Locks, will assume the lead role at CCET. “We are very pleased to be working with Chuck,” said board President Robert Blumberg. “We have a number of economic initiatives that need someone with his energy and experience. He will be a good fit for Columbia County.” Daughtry was the general manager at the Port of Cascade Locks for the last 12 years. Prior to that he was the director of finance at the Port of Vancouver. “I am very pleased and honored to working on a variety of economic development opportunities in Columbia County,” said Daughtry. “The focus in Columbia County is definitely one of collaboration and outreach to all stakeholders.” Daughtry, who officially took the helm of CCET on July 15, said he sees numerous opportunities for growth in Columbia County. “I see opportunities everywhere. The county is perfectly situated for growth. It has a lot of available land, it’s close to a metropolitan area, it has a wonderful sense of commitment to its people,” Daughtry said. When it comes to adding jobs in the county, that is a goal Daughtry says is on everyone’s mind. “There are numerous economic development agencies in the county working together. There are a lot of irons in the fire and I just hope to leverage what is ­­­­ See DIRECTOR, Page A3

Knife-wielding man is shot by local police BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — Authorities have released the name of a man who was shot by police officers in the early morning hours of July 20 near the Best Western Oak Meadows Inn. Rogelio Rodriguez Martinez, 60, of St. Helens is listed in critical condition at Emanuel Hospital in Portland. At just after 2 a.m. on July 20, St. Helens Police received a report of a despondent man armed with a long knife in the 2700 block of Sykes Road. Martinez’s last known address was listed as 2714 Sykes Road. When the officers arrived at the scene, they were confronted and threatened by the man. 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. According to a statement released by St. Helens Police Chief Terry Moss, the Taser appeared to have no effect on Martinez, who did not respond to the officers. Moss said the suspect contin­­­­ See SHOOTING, Page A3

Relay for Life returns for 11th year BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

Hundreds of runners will gather at St. Helens High School on July 27 and July 28 for the 11th annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life. The 24-hour relay begins at 10 a.m. The annual relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith based groups –people from all walks of life – all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost,

and fighting back against the disease. Relay For Life events are held as individuals and teams gather at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their relay. On July 22, St. Helens Mayor Randy Peterson helped “paint the town

Despite rejecting a similar request just a year ago, the Columbia County Commissioners gave tentative approval to a request from Waste Connections (which operates as Hudson Garbage) and Waste Management to increase monthly rates for curbside collection services. The areas affected include rural areas in Scappoose and St. Helens, and Vernonia. The rate increases, which will receive final approval

at the July 24 commissioners’ meeting, are expected to go into effect on Aug. 1. Hudson Garbage will increase its rural St. Helens rates from $24.31 to $26.62 per month. The rate hike includes a 17-cent disposal pass through. However, Hudson’s collection rates for rural Clatskanie and Rainier customers will remain unchanged. “Each year, the county reviews solid waste collection rates using uniformed detailed cost report (DCR),” said Todd Dugdale, director of Land Development Services, in his presentation

to the commissioners. “This procedure was established in 2011 by and with the Solid Waste Advisory Committee. It is designed to provide the information necessary for the county to make ratesetting decisions.” Under the DCR procedure, an operating ratio is a measure – expressed as a ratio – of what proportion of the waste hauler’s revenue is left over before taxes. The county has set the acceptable operation ratio for waste haulers between 8 and 14 percent, with a target ­­­­ See GARBAGE, Page A3

Chronicle takes home press awards The Chronicle has collected a trio of awards in the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association’s 2013 Better Newspaper Contest. The Chronicle placed third in the “Best Online Breaking News” category for its coverage of the Les Schwab fire in St. Helens, coming in behind the Oregonian’s first place win for its coverage of the Clackamas Town Center Mall shooting and the Statesman Journal’s second place win for its Jan. 20, 2012, flood coverage. The Chronicle received a second place win in the Division E category of “Best

Taking the oath

Board member David Graham is sworn in, receiving the oath of office, for another term as Scappoose Rural Fire Protection District Board member position no. 3 at the district’s July 11 meeting.

A 24-year-old motorcycle driver is in custody following an attempt to elude Oregon State Police officers that began on U.S. Highway 30 east of Scappoose and ended when the cyclist crashed into a yard in north Portland. At the request of OSP, Portland Police Bureau is investigating a reported collision related to vehicle contact involving the motorcyclist and an OSP patrol car prior to the end of the incident. Early reports state that at approximately 7:40 a.m., on July 19, a driving complaint was received of a high speed, reckless motorcycle headed eastbound on Highway 30 from the Scappoose area.

Approximately five minutes later, an OSP trooper saw a motorcycle traveling in excess of 100 mph eastbound near milepost 14. The trooper tried to overtake and stop the motorcycle, but the driver failed to yield to the trooper’s emergency lights and siren and continued eastbound at a high rate of speed, exiting off Highway 30 at the St. Johns Bridge and going into north Portland. At approximately 7:52 a.m., the motorcycle traveled over a curb in the vicinity of N. Mohawk Avenue and N. Ivanhoe Street and crashed into a yard. The driver was taken into custody at that location.

Standoff leads to discovery Fire Reports of stolen items, marijuana Columbia County Sheriff’s Office deputies responding to 73417 Doan Road in search of a wanted subject, found the subject plus a whole lot more. A standoff at the residence ultimately led to the discovery of additional warrants out on several individuals at the residence. One person remains on the loose, but others were taken into custody. In addition to the warrants, deputies recovered guns and stolen vehicles. An illegal marijuana grow was also interdicted at a secondary residence.

DIRECTOR: Daughtry’s focus on growth


going on and create new opportunities,” he said. Daughtry recognizes that for some people, understanding what goes into a successful economic development program can be somewhat confusing. “Economic development is really not a science, there’s an art to it. It is really about connections and relationships and bringing stakeholders together,” he said. CCET’s new director says there are plenty of opportunities for both existing businesses and others looking to open a new business or move into the area. For Daughtry, having resources available to draw from to help existing businesses maintain or expand their presence, and to help develop new businesses, is something he is

Harold Jacob Hulsopple Harold Jacob Hulsopple, of Scappoose, died July 21, 2013, at the age of 76. Jake was born Dec. 31, 1936 in Scranton, Kan. He moved with his family to Scappoose at Harold Hulsopple the age of 6. He attended Scappoose schools and graduated from Scappoose High School. On June 24, 1961, he married the love of his life, Margaret. Early in his career he worked for Gibs grocery in Scappoose and after his service in the U.S. Air Force, returned to Scappoose and later owned and operated Jake and Larry’s Shell service station in Scappoose. He later purchased a

really looking forward to having available. “I came from Cascade Locks where we really didn’t have the resources to draw from that we have here,” Daughtry added. Despite the limited resources he had in Cascade Locks, the economic group was eventually successful in building the first industrial site built in Cascade Locks in nearly 40 years. Columbia County Economic Team’s mission is to deliver business-driven economic development services to support creation, growth and retention for Columbia County businesses. Daughtry, along with the board of directors, also recognized all of the hard work Casey Wheeler provided while the search for a new director continued. Following Stocker’s departure last year,

Wheeler assumed the role of interim executive director for CCET. “The board also wishes to acknowledge and thank Interim Executive Director Casey Wheeler for the outstanding job he did through this period of transition,” said Blumberg. In his new role, Daughtry will primarily focus his efforts on business recruitment, expansion and retention. “We plan to continue and expand upon the great working relationships between Columbia County, the Oregon Regional Solutions Team, the Port of St. Helens and the Columbia-Pacific Economic District,” said Daughtry. The Columbia-Pacific Economic District covers Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook counties, along with the western portion of Washington County.

SHOOTING: handguns needed to control situation From PAGE A1 ued to approach the officers, and then aggressively charged them while wielding the long knife. “The officers were forced to use their handguns to control the situation and stop the man. Officers immediately began to administer first aid until paramedics arrived. He was transported to Emanuel Hospital for treatment,” said Moss. “We had two St. Helens Police officers and two Columbia County Sheriff’s deputies involved,” said Moss. “All of the officers have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.” The Columbia County Major Crimes Team and Oregon

State Police detectives are investigating. The names of the two St. Helens Police officers and the two Columbia County Sheriff’s Office deputies involved in the shooting have not yet been released, in accordance with the city’s deadly force plan and Senate Bill 111, which requires the officers involved to be formally interviewed no sooner than 48 hours after the event. “Every county was directed to create policy in regards to officer-involved deadly force incidents. In that policy, which follows state law, it tells you what you are supposed to do with those officers, how much time you are supposed to give them… we are following the law,” Moss added.

Under that deadly use plan, any officer involved in a shooting that results in death or serious injury is placed on administrative leave until it is determined if the shooting was justified and the officer is cleared for duty. Once the Major Crimes Team and OSP has completed its investigation, the finding will be presented to Columbia County District Attorney Steve Atchison, who will review the case and determine if the case needs to be presented to a grand jury of if the shooting was justified. The city’s deadly physical force plan can be found in its entirety online at

GARBAGE: increase due to loss of commercial clients From PAGE A1 of 11 percent. If the operating ratio in the previous year is below the 8 percent mark, a rate adjustment may be made. According to Hudson Garbage officials, the company’s operating ratio for collection services in rural St. Helens fell from 6.8 percent in 2011 to 5.4 percent in 2012. The decline was reportedly due to a loss of revenue from commercial customers. In addition, Hudson said its revenues from recycled materials was also less than anticipated. The rate increases for Waste Management customers will be similar to the other rate increase. Rural

Scappoose customers will see their bill rise from $25.12 per month to $26.57 per month. This represents a 5.1 percent increase. In Vernonia, garbage rates will increase by $2.09 to $26.61, an increase of 8.6 percent. Both rate increases include a 17-cent disposal pass through. “The reason for the larger increase for the Vernonia area is, if you recall, that we started offering every other week recycling services. When we had to set forth our rates, we were estimating a little better productivity than we are actually experiencing based on the routes we are driving,” said Waste Management Pricing Manager Mike Jeffries. “Also, last year we had requested a rate adjustment that was

denied. Under the new DCR reporting, there was a little misunderstanding as to what was required of us.” Hudson Garbage representative cited a loss of around $15,000 from its commercial clients as the primary reason for the rate increase. Hudson also said it has stopped some of its drivers from using some customers’ driveways because of safety concerns, and that some of the clients have found other solutions to their garbage collection needs. “The reason why it stopped was because it was unsafe for our trucks to go in… our trucks have become bigger over the years. It really depends on if we’re able to go in and out safely,” said Site Manager Ernie Martin.

Letters Shoulder the costs In the middle of next month, Columbia County Commissioners Tony Hyde, Earl Fisher and Henry Heimuller will decide whether or not they will overturn the decision by the Columbia County Planning Commission to not allow a zone change at Port Westward in order to accommodate coal trains. In its final decision, the planning commission said there was overwhelming testimony from farmers in the area and from the public that a zone change should not be allowed simply to allow coal trains to pass through Columbia County on their way to China. They further decided that the Port of St. Helens could show no clearly stated project which would require a zone change. That seems pretty darn clear to me. Nonetheless, the county commissioners will make the decision whether or not to accept the planning commission’s conclusions. I assume there will be public input allowed and that the meetings will be held in the evening to accommodate the huge interest in this decision. I hope the commissioners keep in mind the following facts: 1) a large amount of infrastructure will need to be done to the existing railroad tracks. The rail companies will be held responsible for only 5 percent of these costs. The taxpayers will shoulder the balance of the costs; 2) Probably 99 percent of the jobs created will be temporary construction jobs and most likely will not be given to county residents; 3) after two to three years of construction, the jobs will be gone, most likely the coal will be gone and Columbia County will be left with the filthy residue of this incredibly bad choice from our public officials. It is critical to let your elected representatives know your feelings on these issues. Marjorie Kundiger, St. Helens





Patriot or Traitor? The Columbia County Constitution Party at this year’s county fair made it a project to measure public opinion on the issues surrounding Edward Snowden’s divulging of information that our federal government has been engaged in an unreported and comprehensive surveillance program involving the entire American population. In an effort to make the survey as accurate as possible, no leading statements or questions were asked prior to individuals making their response. A sign posted read as follows, “You be the judge. Snowden, Patriot or Traitor? Vote here.” Paper ballots were made available along with a covered ballot box. Bob Ekstrom and David Tankersley counted the ballots at the end of the fair on Sunday afternoon. We noticed that fairgoers of all ages and persuasions were eager to express themselves and had prior knowledge of the Snowden matter. Here were the results: • 117 votes for Patriot – 75 percent; • 41 votes for Traitor – 25 percent; • 3 votes or “Patriot with reservations;” • 1 vote for “revolutionary.” Our analysis of this unscientific but meaningful survey is that Columbia County fairgoers and probably the broader population of Oregonians and Americans want to know what their government is doing and want, also, to give their permission first before government does what it does. Additionally, there seems to be a consensus that surveillance measures have crossed the line that defines the relationship between a free people and their servant government. While many office holders talk about “transparency” in government, the reverse has

come to pass. Citizens have become transparent to their government while government is operating behind closed doors. We wish Edward Snowden had had the additional courage to remain in the United States. His seeking of asylum elsewhere has distracted many from the central issues that have been raised. Thankfully, Congress and the courts are now acknowledging the lack of constitutional authority for the surveillance program exposed by Edward Snowden.

Today man just lets it all go and begins over by building new with a cost twice the price; making much higher their household costs, a new housing development. All new rules of yard upkeep on a rock pile, leaving much to the imagination. Knowing how much work goes in to replacing sewer lines here in town now, wow with land movements after blasting of rock, unbelievable. Just think what the repairs will cost in five years on underground plumbing in these areas. I had always wondered why a town would never remodel it self, there’s so much to offer. The cost couldn’t be all that much more you’d think. For some reason there’s this thing about hanging on to those old falling down establishments. It still could happen, start by the removal of old vacant buildings, the one and two bedroom homes. You know all those that have been grandfathered in, with bad wiring, plumbing and all with the damp under flooring with well fed termites. Those old antique stores

that look like warmed over death. Our city could do the same as the city of Detroit, they filed bankruptcy. Now they won’t tare down the old and build some new, I’d say they should-have had that thought sooner. Efficient insulated store with cost efficient utility hook ups. Just think all new up overhead street lighting; all overhead new without the spider web look would be a delight to see. Maybe make some deals. By going block by block, moving old homes or giving them an uplift with new foundations and efficient windows. By building new homes in these same blocks, with all wiring and piping underground.

By this digging up to make new homes on a hill of rocks, hmm, got to give this some thought. Not good for planting trees, you’d have to jackhammer in a hole for them. Oh I know there are firs trees growing there now; so how did they manage? Think of this; when a seed roots it has the ability to manipulate its way into and through the rocks. Plantings will take time without a windstorm. Hopefully there won’t be much wind allowing roofs to survive a falling tree. Don’t much care about garden space now days, so don’t worry about that. An efficient town with a foundation, hmm! Dean D. Ebert, St. Helens

Thanks Betty I believe that we should thank Betsy Johnson for exercising courage and good judgment in opposing universal automatic voter registration and in countering attacks on our Second Amendment rights. Betsy is also one of only a few of our representatives who not only says she is increasing genuine jobs in Columbia County, but is actually doing so. Too many of our representatives talk the talk, but do not walk the walk. I am a Republican, but after the last legislative session, I am thankful that Betsy Johnson is my state senator.

Improving your chances of getting the job BY LILLIE ANDERSON OSU Extension Service

As I get close to the end of my year as an AmeriCorps member, I am gearing up for another grueling round of job searches. Over the next few months my life will consist of applications, cover letters, resumes, interviews, defeats, and hopefully a victory, sooner rather than later. For those of you who are in the same boat, I would like to share my experience of searching for my first job out of college. While I was in college the chance of getting an interview after sending out my resume was around 30 percent. I was qualified for the jobs I was applying to, but no one was interested. Needless to say I was starting to feel more than a little

dejected and desperate. The few occasions where I finally did get an opportunity to interview I was usually so nervous it was a complete disaster. After complaining to a friend about my lack of success she offered to take a look at my resume, which is when I discovered just how important resume presentation is. Employers typically receive upwards of 40 applicants for a job posting. For some jobs, that number can be closer to 500. With that many resumes to look through, employers usually spend no more than 30 seconds on each resume before they decide to look back at it later or discard it. Try giving yourself only 30 seconds to look over your resume. Are you able to gather much information from it? The only information I could gather

from my resume was I had an immature email address, I cannot remember it exactly but it had the word “gurl” in it. Not exactly what employers are looking for. With the help of my friend I reformatted my resume. By bolding the heading of jobs and other important sections and using bullet points for the descriptions of each section, my resume was now much easier to decipher in 30 seconds. Next I had to re-write all of my job descriptions. My old resume only had basic routine task listed, “worked with…” and “cleaned community workspace.” I broke out the thesaurus and used positive action verbs, now it says “collaborated with…” and “organized and maintained…” Not only is the resume more interesting to read, but I also switched the

focus to accomplishments rather than fulfilling the basic tasks. Lastly, before I sent out any further resumes I double, and then triple, checked it for spelling and grammatical errors. This simple re-working made a world of difference. The number of interviews I was getting nearly doubled. However, my nervousness was holding me back from having a good interview. To fight off my nerves, I prepared answers to every possible question I may be asked. I also visited the locations of my interview a day in advance so I knew exactly how long it would take me to arrive and made sure I was 10 minutes early. Although the transformation was not overnight and it took me a few more interviews, eventually my forced confidence and over preparation out-

weighed my nervousness. How your resume looks and your ability to interview are not the only important things in your job search, skills and experience that make you qualified are the main factor employers look for. If you are lacking in experience in your desired field there are three easy paths to gaining necessary experience. Take a class, this not only provides education necessary to the position but also shows your initiative in the field. Joining a local club can provide you both with experience and connections to future employers. Volunteering for an organization gives you valuable hands-on experience, and demonstrates responsibility and dedication. A recent study found that unemployed individuals with a history of volunteering were 27 percent more likely

to find employment than nonvolunteers. Volunteers living in a rural are 55 percent more likely to find employment. Volunteering is the easiest and the most impactful method to increasing your employability. There are tons of volunteer opportunities across the county for people of all interests. If you are interested in volunteering and also being paid at the same time, look into programs such as AmeriCorps, Teach for America, or RARE. All of these programs offer exceptional job experience, a living stipend, and money for education. The OSU Extension Office in St Helens is looking for an AmeriCorps member for the 2013-14 year.

VA grants going to northwest agencies to help veterans More than $3 million in grants is being awarded to northwest agencies to help end homelessness among veterans. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki announced the award of $3,061,959 in homeless prevention grants to the Columbia, Lane, Benton, Jefferson, Linn, Lincoln, Clackamas, Clatsop, Tillamook, Washington, Marion, Polk, Deschutes and Cook counties in Oregon and Clark County in Washington. The grants will serve approximately 670 homeless and at-risk veteran families as part of the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program. In the Portland VA Medical Center service area, the grants will go to helping those associated with five of the total 319 community agencies in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Agencies receiving grant funds include Community Action Team out of St. Helens, St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County in Eugene, Easter Seals of Oregon in Portland, Central Oregon Veteran’s Outreach in Bend, and Transi-

tion Projects in Portland. “With these grants, we are strengthening our partnership with community non-profits across the country to provide Veterans and their families with hope, a home, and a future,” said Shinseki. “The work of Supportive Services for Veteran Families program grantees has already helped us prevent and end homelessness among tens of thousands of homeless veterans and their families, but as long as a single veteran lives on our streets, we have work to do.” Currently, there are more than 6,000 veterans living in Columbia County. How many of those veterans are homeless is unknown. Under the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program, VA is awarding grants to private non-profit organizations and consumer cooperatives that provide services to very low-income Veteran families living in -- or transitioning to -- permanent housing. Those community organizations provide a range of services that promote

housing stability among eligible very low income Veteran families. Thanks to the SSVF grants, those community organizations will provide a range of services that promote housing stability and play a key role in connecting Veterans and their family members to VA services such as mental health care and other benefits. Community-based groups can offer temporary financial assistance on behalf of Veterans for rent payments, utility payments, security deposits and moving costs. This is the program’s third year. Last year, the VA provided about $100 million to assist approximately 50,000 veterans and family members. In 2009, President Obama and Secretary Shinseki announced the federal government’s goal to end veteran homelessness in 2015. The grants are intended to help accomplish that goal. More information about VA’s homeless programs is available at www.

Local historic newspapers now available electronically ST. HELENS ­–­­ Thanks to a $1,164 grant awarded to the St. Helens Public Library through the Columbia County Cultural Coalition, two historic area newspapers are now available to digital readers. The grant project focused on digitizing two lesser known newspapers from Columbia County: The Columbian and the Columbia Register. The Columbian was published from 1882-1886 and is the oldest known paper in Columbia County. The Columbia Register was published from 1904-1906 and is notable for having been published in the vanished town of Houlton. Thanks to additional funding from the Library of Congress and National Endowment for the Humanities’ National Digital Newspaper Program, The St. Helens Mist has also been digitized and made available for online reading. Although the St. Helens Mist was published from 1913 to 1933, issues from

purple” in recognition and support of the event. Local business and individuals had the opportunity to show their support by putting out purple banners and flags. “Relay For Life is as much an awareness raiser about the progress against cancer as it is a fund raiser,” said Peterson, who is also the honorary event chair. “Many of the participants will be people who have been dealt with cancer themselves. Their involvement is proof of the progress that has been made in reducing cancer death rates and in the quality of life following cancer treatment.” While the Relay for Life event is working to beat a serious disease, the event has plenty of celebrating too. Throughout the 24 hours, teams will play games, dress up and compete in themed laps. Highlighting the evening is the Luminaria Ceremony held after dark to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the battle against cancer. The luminaria line the track and are left burning throughout the night to remind participants of the incredible importance of their contributions. “The funds raised will enable us to continue our investment in the fight against cancer through educational programs, research and services to patients,” said Peterson. “Due to the generosity of corporate sponsors like Walmart, Richardson’s Furniture, Country Companies, and Armstrong World Industries, the money raised by participants goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving programs.” Information about how to form a team or become involved in Relay For Life is available from the American Cancer Society at 503-7953993 or 800-227-2345, or visit Here are a few profiles of the many teams participating: CRUISIN’ FOR A CURE We are sponsored by Durham School Services. Our team is made up of school bus drivers and their friends and families. We are walking in honor of one of our members who is currently fighting cancer. We are a brand new team this year, many of have walked with other teams in previous years but we

decided to create a team all our own. We have a couple cancer survivors on our team and all of us have been affected by this terrible disease in one way or another.

St. Helens Credit Union We first formed our team for Relay for Life in 2005. We joined the fight because we had several coworkers that were either in the process of fighting cancer or were survivors. Many of us have also had family members with cancer. Some have been survivors some have not. We strongly believe in doing what we can to help this dreaded illness loose its power to crush lives. Anyone wishing to make a donation to our Relay for Life team can stop in to any of our branches located in St. Helens, Scappoose or Rainier. TEAM WALMART This is our 10th year at relay. Our team started with about eight people the first few years. As team leader I originally started the team because of my own loss of my dad. My mother and mother-in-law also were breast cancer survivors. My sister is a colon cancer survivor. Now although we only have about 15 actual members on the team we usually have about four people walking at all times. Our associates sign up for ½-hour slots and come over and walk with us. We accumulate everybody’s time and submit a Volunteer Vap from Walmart Corporate. Probably about half the store participates. We have Blue Jeans For a Cure every Friday and everyone pays $1.00 to wear jeans with the proceeds going to Relay. We have one survivor on the team. ST. HELENS MOOSE LODGE Team Moose has been relaying for 10 yrs, with 2013 being our 11th year relaying for the Columbia County Relay. We started our team as a group for Community Service to help raise money for the American Cancer Society and to support the local community events. Our team started out to be for community support, but as we started to sign up walkers in our first year we found that many of our Lodge members had cancer and were either in treatment or a survivor or they had lost someone close to them from cancer. Just this month we have lost

three very special members from this terrible disease. We raise money year round by having monthly Bunco nights, Spaghetti dinners, our Big Indoor Sale, selling used movies/DVDs, bottle returns and asking our friends and families for donations. Being part of Relay helps us fight back. We walk the track in memory of those we have lost and in honor of those who have survived, cancer doesn’t’ sleep and neither do we: we walk and walk and walk for 24 hours to help find a cure. COLUMBIA RIVER FIRE & RESCUE Our team is made up of members of Columbia River Fire & Rescue and their families. I believe CRFR has had a team in each Relay since the beginning. I came into the picture about four years ago and have been captain since then. This year our inspiration is one of our former co-workers,

Pat Martyn. He was a survivor for many years but we lost him this past December. We will be wearing t-shirts with his picture on them as well as trying different things to honor him and the things he enjoyed in life. In years past we have sponsored the turnout walk. During the hottest part of the day we ask that firefighters walk the track wearing their full firefighting gear (turnouts) and masks as well as oxygen tanks. I think this year we may try and build on that or do something unique in honor of Pat. We haven’t quite got it all figured out yet.

team with Country support. Laurie had a lot of family members with cancer and was her way of giving back. It has since evolved to be a combination of family members and client members that have someone that they walk for that have pasted or have the support of out team. Wanda Obermeier lost her husband to liver cancer several years ago, a brother to lung cancer and just last year I lost my sister to breast cancer complications. I have a niece that has had a

COUNTRY FINANCIAL Country Financial has been involved in the local Relay for life for last 16 years. Laurie Preston start our team and we walked in Forest Grove until the Relay event started in St. Helens, Columbia County. It was started as a family

double mastectomy for breast cancer and is currently doing reconstruction so it has again evolved to being personal. Wanda, Jeannie and I did a lot of the work for our team for a few years and now have more friends and family working to help us make our goal. We do lots of fun things and have 6 current survivors that come out and walk on our team. We are always happy to see them and support them in their continuing efforts to stay in remission.

Scappoose takes two seconds Two Scappoose teams qualified for their respective 2013 Little League State Softball tournaments and both teams reached the championship game of their brackets. Both the 10- and 11-year-old Scappoose team and the Scappoose Juniors team finished second in the state last week. The Junior squad looked dominant in its first two games of the tournament. Scappoose beat West Salem/Parrish/South Salem 14-2 in the opening round. Scappoose followed that with a 16-1 blowout of Mt. Hood/Powell/Clackamas. Eventual champion Pilot Rock handed Scappoose its first loss of the double-elimination tournament. Pilot Rock took a 14-4 win to advance to the championship game. In a must-win game against Jefferson County, Scappoose came out on top of a 16-15 thriller to reach the finals and a rematch with Pilot Rock. Scappoose kept it closer the second time around, but came out on the wrong end of a 7-5 contest. It was a more arduous road for the 10- and 11-year-olds, who were dealt a loss in their first game. Hermiston beat Scappoose 1-0 in a pitchers’ duel. Scappoose made up for that lack of runs in its next game, putting up plenty of offense in a 16-5 win against Portland/Taborvilla. A 4-3 win in a rematch against Hermiston put Scappoose into the finals against Murrayhill. Scappoose put up a battle against Murrayhill, but dropped a 6-3 decision. – Kyle Boggs

New winners rule at rodeo ST. HELENS — One-hundredth of a second decided the winner of the largest purse during the 2013 Columbia County Rodeo. Newberg’s Cindy Woods topped Hermiston’s Jade Crossley by that slimmest of margins in the barrel racing event at the 98th annual Columbia County Fair & Rodeo to take home a $1,224.96 payday. Crossley’s payout wasn’t too shabby either, as she won $1,013.76 for finishing second. Those two barrel racers were among the 239 competitors entered into the two-day competition. Out of those entrants spread across eight events, there were no repeat winners from 2012. The only local rider to make it onto the NPRA’s winnings report was Marty Liesegang of St. Helens. Liesegang was the top novice bareback rider. Two bull riders were on the draw list and neither managed to hang on for the eight seconds to earn a qualifying ride. Kevin Lusk of Enumclaw won the bareback riding competition with a score of 87 atop Reflex. Michele Lyons of Touchet won the breakaway roping in 2.5 seconds to nab a payday north of $1,000. Rio Rico’s Cooper Dewitt scored 82 points riding Duce in the

Taylor Gregg was third in 4.7. Tom Akins of Goldendale and Randy Polich of Canby joined forces to win the team roping event. Their time of 4.8 seconds was nearly a half-second ahead of second place. Terrebonne’s Shane Erickson picked up a $1,037 paycheck with

his 9.8-second time in calf roping. That placed him four-tenths of a second ahead of second place. The St. Helens stop is the 17th out of 34 Northwest Professional Rodeo Association competitions. See more rodeo photos on Page A3 and at – Kyle Boggs



Clamming: the other side of the story


sat squinting at the pastel-colored coastal skyline, bits of seaweed blocking my view from the sand. I’ve always loved and dreaded this time of day. The tides drift away and let me soak up some sun outside the surf, near the beach’s sandy surface. I was just like anyone else: A firm believer that a sunny day on the beach is hard to beat. But low tides like the Kyle Boggs one I encountered that fateful day left me vulnerable to those shovel-wielding predators. As soon as one of those appendages – almost as thick as my entire neck – reached down and poked me, I retreated down my foot-long hole back into the safety of my shell. “Surely, this deep under the surface, I’m invisible to those humans who try plucking me from my home so they can throw me in a frying pan,” I thought to myself. But then, off in the distance, I felt the sand shivering around me. It was then I knew my fate – like so many other good Empire clams before me – had been sealed. No longer would I live a life of leisure tunneling back See TRIALS, Page A14

BMX riders take off out of the gate during the State Championship Race at CRBMX on July 21.

CRBMX has its biggest draw yet BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — With 149 riders, the State Championship Race at Columbia River BMX on July 21 was officially the largest in CRBMX history. That race was the second day of two straight big-point events held at the track in McCormick Park. Ninety-three riders entered the Redline Cup Qualifier on July 20. Riders from St. Helens picked up one win each day. Stephanie Kuntzmann won the 15-year-old novice division at the Redline Cup Qualifer.

Jared Barlow won the 19- to 27-year-old intermediate division at the state championship race. James Fleming, also of St. Helens, was third in that division. The 186 total entrants to the competition (some competed in both events, others did not) came from four different states; only 15 hailed from St. Helens. Others came from cities throughout Oregon, Washington, California and one family even had three participants entered from Kurtistown, Hawaii. “Everyone really, really loved the improvements and we couldn’t be more grateful for all the local support we have received in order to make this happen,” said

tournament organizer Paul Barlow. In addition to the wins from Kuntzmann and Barlow, there were plenty of other top-five finishes for St. Helens racers. At the Redline Cup Qualifier, Barlow and Danny Wallin went 2-3 in the 19-27 expert category, behind Dylan Shanks of Molalla. Kaleb Blackburn was second to Sherwood’s Holden Grossman in the 15-year-old intermediate division. Kyle Dey was second in the 6year-old intermediate division, finishing behind Hudson White from Seattle. In the 7-year-old novice class, Colton MacDannald came in be-

hind Austin Nixon of La Center, Wash. Luke Schick and Carter Kageler Bowen both had thirdplace finishes. Schick’s came in the 9-year-old intermediate class and Kageler Bowen’s was in the 10-year-old intermediate. Paul Barlow finished fourth in the 36-40 cruiser class. Schick and Kageler Bowen both improved to second-place finishes in their respective divisions the following day at the State Championship Race. Schick finished right ahead of fellow St. Helens rider Caleb Kuntzmann. See CRBMX, Page A14


Three drivers sweep at benefit races

CORRINA MUSSER / For The Chronicle

Teagan Musser, 2, eyes a cockle clam that will surely turn into a treat later.

ST. HELENS — Columbia County Racing Association’s annual fair benefit race helped kick off the Columbia County Fair and Rodeo on July 17. While not counting toward the season point standings, several drivers still made their way out to the track for the yearly competition. In addition to not counting toward the point standings, the benefit races differ from other races in that drivers compete in two main event races for each division. There are no qualifying heats or trophy dashes. In three of the six divisions, one driver won both mains. Ryan White took the checkered flag in both street stock division races. He beat Aaron Snook to the finish line in the first contest, then finished ahead of Curt Zelmer in the second. Guy Tow, Jr. and Lucas Eaton finished first and second in both of

the dwarf car events. Guy Tow Sr., was third in the first race, fourth in the second.

In the tracer division, the four entrants finished in the same order both times: Bryce Tenney won,

followed by Olivia McDaniel, Josh Sheller and Brittnee Gibson. The other three events all had more competitors. Dan Smith won the first run of the 12-car sportsman division with Scotty Wells the runner-up. In the second race of that division, Bob Berg beat out Eric Lindquist in an 11-car race. Don Jenner topped Clark Tenney in the first modified race, which featured nine drivers. Tenney then won the second contest, finishing ahead of Collen Winebarger. Nine cars raced in both of the 4-cylinder races with John Henry and Chris Gaboury both taking checkered flags. Kim Oyler and Joel Beehler each captured runnerup honors. The next race will be on July 27, coinciding with the Studebaker Car Show at River City Speedway. – Kyle Boggs

Two Columbia Co. riders hit nationals TRIALS: delicious BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

It took him four years to qualify for a National High School Rodeo Association’s biggest competition – the National High School Finals Rodeo – but once there, recent Scappoose High grad Blake Sofich didn’t waste the opportunity. Sofich finished sixth out of 86 calf ropers in the second of two rounds at the 2013 NHSFR July 14-20 in Rock Springs, Wyo. Sofich tied down his calf in 9.88 seconds. The fastest roper of the week was Michael Perry of Bandera, Texas, who clocked a time of 8.4 seconds. Sofich – whose fourthplace state finish earned him the final calf roping spot on Team Oregon – easily finished ahead of any other Oregonian at nationals. The next best finish came from Jordan Siminoe of Colton, who ended up in 10.7 seconds. Sofich will compete at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas next year. Sofich wasn’t alone representing Columbia County on the national rodeo circuit this summer. Ireland McDonough of St. Helens competed in barrel racing at the 2013 National Junior High Finals Rodeo last month in Gallup, N.M. McDonough’s average results placed her 146th out of 159 barrel racers in the com-

and forth between my 7-inch shell to make quarter-sized holes at the surface of the beach. Instead, I’ll be cut open, ripped apart, covered in spices and fried in oil. So it goes. All I could do at that point was suck in the length of me and close the hinges on my shell as tightly as possible. There’s no “fight or flight” for a clam like me; instead it’s “hide or fried.” As I sat there hiding, I could feel the ripples in the sand starting about eight inches from my window to the sky. Somebody was coming for me. The next thing I knew, sand started drifting off my shell, little by little. This malicious hunter had found me and was slowly chipping away at the last layer of my home. I felt like the first little pig watching my straw house blow to the ground. Soon there was a hand grabbing around my entirety, working to wriggle me free from my perch in the riverbed. Luckily for me, I was afforded one final reprieve from my impending doom. I was not the first victim on this day. The silver lining in this cloud was that I could enjoy the company of my fellow clams on my final journey from sandy haven to snack central. Before long, there were

11 others in the bucket with me. The person toting the bucket left us alone for a while… until one of our distant cousins – the cockle clam – came dropping down on top of us. Then another, and another. Once we were transported and covered with water, there were a total of 20 of us in this white, 5-gallon bucket. Luckily, this was salt water. We still had time to live. But it was quickly ticking away. At the primitive compound they took us to – some sort of camp, it looked like – we discovered we weren’t the only group of shell-dwellers near our end. There were three other buckets just like us. One by one, we were removed from the buckets. A knife shot into the gap in my shell. It scraped around the edges, slicing my abductor muscles and rendering me unable to close my shell. Then I was torn from the shell, cut into pieces, rinsed and tossed into a piece of Tupperware with all of the others. It’s like we were nothing more than pieces of meat to them. Prior to torturing us with a scorching hot, oily death atop a camp stove, they caked us in flour and seasonings. Then, piece by piece, we were devoured like the delicious coastal snacks we always knew we’d end up becoming.

the 14 expert class. The next race scheduled at CRBMX is the Phil Barlow Memorial Race at 10 a.m. on July 27. All proceeds from the event will go to continuing improvements at the track. Francois Boulanger of Eugene catches some air during the State Championship Race at CRBMX on July 21. Sunday had the largest turnout in CRBMX history, dating to 2002.
