AmeriCorps Vista volunteer Mary Heberling settles into her new desk at city hall. Heberling takes over the role of Main Street Program coordinator from her predecessor Melissa Serafin, whose volunteer term ended in August.

SHEDCO welcomes new Vista volunteer BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

The St. Helens Economic Development Corporation recently welcomed its newest AmeriCorps volunteer to its ranks. Mary Heberling will take the helm as the Main Street Program coordinator. Heberling replaces Melissa Serafin, whose one-year AmeriCorps Vista commitment came to a close at the end of August. The Vista volunteer recognizes that she has her work cut out for her and that getting longtime business owners and community members to open up to SHEDCO and the Main Street program won’t necessarily be easy. “I was able to meet with [Melissa] before I started this position, and that was really helpful,” Heberling said. “She mentioned that her goal for the past year was to gain more trust from the business owners.” Oregon Main Street uses a comprehensive approach to commercial historic district revitalization. This approach has been implemented in more than 2,200 cities and towns in 40 states across the nation with the help of the National Main Street Center and statewide downtown revitalization programs. The Main Street Approach is based on a comprehensive, four-point strategy: organization, promotion, design and ­­­­ See SHEDCO, Page A6

Local farmer says port rezoning will destroy his business BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

CLATSKANIE — “It’s a fight for our lives here. That’s how we view it,” says local farmer Mike Seely of his battle with the Port of St. Helens and its’ application to rezone nearly 1,000 acres of agricultural land at Port Westward for industrial use.

Since the port filed its application earlier this year, Seely has been working on his own, with his attorney and with local environmental groups to learn as much as possible about state and federal land use laws, state land use goals and about Senate Bill 766. “I can’t afford my attorney all of the time, so we have to do a lot of the leg work ourselves,” Seely said. “That’s the sad part, too. It’s

taking a lot of our resources, in both time and money, away from actually building our business.” Seely’s 450-acre mint farm is one of only a few agricultural businesses in and around Port Westward Industrial Park and the last mint farm on the lower Columbia River. Over the past three decades, the third-generation farmer has transformed his 80-acre, specialty peppermint and spearmint farm

into a highly successful candy, tea and mint business with a nationwide distribution. Unique and significant Along with growing his business, Seely has also been working to educate others interested in Port Westward’s future. For now, that future lies in the hands of Co-

Food bank board to replace leader BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

ST. HELENS — Columbia Pacific Food Bank is looking to hire an interim executive director after the food bank’s board of directors made the decision to replace long-time director Tracie Smith. “We’re just looking at going in a different direction,” said board member Marty Baldwin said, What will that direction be? “I think the word ‘strategic’ sums it up well,” said Ken Gates, board president for the food bank. “We want to focus on where we

want to be in five years and how are we going to get there. We hope to identify about five goals for our organization that will guide us in how we make decisions about our resources: time, talent, treasure.” Gates said the board hopes to have a new director in place by the start of next year. In the meantime, the board is looking to bring an interim executive in by Nov. 1. The interim position will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the food bank as well as for creating a procedure for recruiting a new executive director. A detailed job description is available from

Police chief’s suspension leads to appeal, additional investigation BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

SCAPPOOSE — City officials received notice recently they may be headed to court over allegations involving Police Chief Doug Greisen. A Sept. 17 letter from Portland attorney J. Ashlee Albies sent to Mayor Scott Burge claims Greisen “engaged in a campaign of retaliation” against Sgt. Doug Carpenter, a fellow officer at the Scappoose Police Department, after the lower ranking officer wrote a report critical of an incident involving the chief. Carpenter’s attorney claims Greisen altered the terms and conditions of Carpenter’s employment and Carpenter may seek monetary claims “in connection with any actions taken by the City or its agents with regards to Sgt. Carpenter’s employment, including but not limited to claims for whistleblowing, retaliation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and any other related claims.” Carpenter is on protected leave until the investigation is resolved. At the heart of the controversy is a Feb. 4, 2013, incident in which the suspect in a hit and run, non-injury car crash was stopped after Greisen ordered the pursuing officer to perform a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver. An investigation into Greisen’s handling of the pursuit was launched in July by City Manager Jon Hanken, in response to a complaint filed by Carpenter.

“I brought in an investigator from Local Government Personnel Institute to do an investigation of the complaint,” said Hanken. “All 10 of the allegations were sustained as part of the investigation and as such I reviewed everything and made a decision that it was a disciplinary matter and he was suspended for two weeks.” Greisen has since filed an appeal of disciplinary action. “I have satisfactorily performed all duties required of the Chief of Police position, I have never received a negative performance evaluation, and I never have received any prior notice of disciplinary action,” said Greisen in the appeal. The police chief also said he was confident that the department has not only kept up with latest public safety threats but has “turned the corner” in providing better protection. Greisen also noted his long standing with the department and positive outcome of the pursuit should have been considered but were not. Scappoose resident Marty Baldwin, himself a form law enforcement officer,

Findings from the Local Government Personnel Institute investigation of Feb. 4 accident and subsequent pursuit state Scappoose Police Chief Doug Greisen: • Failed to seek out sufficient information from available source, his patrol officer and dispatch, either by radio or telephone in order to make an informed decision related to the conduct of engaging in a police pursuit; • Failed to properly document the pursuit for subordinate staff to review and subsequent training as required; • Entered into a motor vehicle pursuit with insufficient knowledge and justification; • Engaged in a pursuit, operating an unauthorized and improperly equipped police vehicle; • Disregarded policy related asked the city council and the public to wait until all the facts are known before make a judgment. “When the maneuver was successfully completed, the suspect was taken into custody and charged with hit and run, attempting to elude police officers and other charges. The entire time elapsed was less than two minutes,” said Baldwin. “In this case, Chief Greisen acted not only within Oregon law, but the decisions he made defended property and the citizens of Scappoose.”

to the established procedure for a secondary pursuing vehicle; • Violated safe driving principles related to pursuit driving with his passing of Officer Milton and his vehicle position potentially endangering other motorists; • Failed to properly evaluate the need for a continuation of a pursuit taking into account all known facts and failed to terminate a pursuit; • Demonstrated a lack of knowledge related to applicable standards and police practice related to pursuit intervention tactics; • Failed to participate in annual training related to pursuit driving; • Failed to read and maintain a current working knowledge of his departmental policy manual. Those sentiments were echoed by the city’s Personnel Review Committee, which was appointed by Scappoose’s mayor to review the disciplinary proceedings. “We, the members of the PRC, are in the process of completing a thorough, professional and objective review of the appeal that has been brought before us. We urge the public to delay final judgment in this matter until the full course of due process has been completed,” said PRC and city council members Barb Hayden, Mark Reed

Skate Clatskanie man convicted on multiple counts of rape, sex abuse park plans back on track BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

SCAPPOOSE — Plans to replace Scappoose’s skate park near city hall ran into some delays that officials are hopeful they have finally resolved. Earlier this year, Grindline Skateparks based in Seattle was awarded a contract with the city through a competitive bid process with an expected completion date of May 31 for a new 4,900 square foot skate park. In early April the company brought a geotechnical engineering firm hired by Grindline to do borings on the previous skate park site. According to Grindline, that’s when the problems began. In an email sent by Grindline sales manager Micah Shapiro, the company points to results found by that geotechnical engineering firm as the cause. “We have been going back and forth with our structural and geotech engineers and based on their investigations we come to the conclusion that it will be better to demo the old park than to pour over it,” said Shapiro. Grindline said it then began working with its contractors to determine how best to remove the old park. “Although this has delayed the project, in the long run it will provide for a better skatepark both from a skateability and durability standpoint,” said Shapiro. Grindline also said the

A Clatskanie man arrested in 2011 and charged with multiple counts of rape, sodomy and sex abuse has been convicted on 46 separate counts. George Nick Lammi, 55, was arrested on June 8, 2011 after a friend arrived at his home at witnessed Lammi abusing a female relative. The witness then reported Lammi to law enforcement officials. Lammi’s trial began on May 28 and ended with his conviction on June 3.

“Basically, his daughter would visit him on weekends. Starting in December of 2010 until 2011, he was raping and sodomizing her,” said Deputy District Attorney George Lammi Jon Berg. “Sex abuse is not often a crime we have a witness to.” Lammi was initially charged with three counts of first-degree rape, 16 counts of first-degree sodomy, nine counts of first-degree sex abuse and

19 counts of incest. The jury ultimately found him guilty on all but one count which was dismissed. “The grand jury indicted him for three counts of rape and 16 counts of sodomy. It ultimately turned out to be 46 counts that he was convicted on,” said Berg. “I’m very thankful for the jury. They did a good job.” If it seems like an unusually long time between when Lammi was arrested and when his trial began, that’s because it was. Berg said some extenuating circumstances in the case delayed prosecution. “There were some intervening facts that delayed the trial. The

defense filed I can’t tell you how many motions,” Berg said. “We were just flooded with motions from the defense on mostly discovery issues. And there were other issues.” Lammi’s was orginally held at the Columbia County Jail on $800,000 bail which was reduced to $139,000 following a bail reduction hearing. The trial itself wasn’t without its own difficulties. “I’ve never had a trial that was attended so well by supporters of the offender. At one point, the jury actually complained because they were disturbing the jury’s ability to

REZONING: ‘There is no Columbia County economy with an industrial economy’ From PAGE A1

lumbia County’s board of commissioners, which held the first of a two-part public hearing on the rezoning request last week. “Is not often that you get the opportunity to be involved in such a significant land use application,” said Gary Shepherd, of Oregon Land Law and attorney for the Port of St. Helens, during the hearing. “You certainly have one of those in front of you today.” For three hours union reps, rail officials and the Port of St. Helens itself would present evidence and testimony in support of the application. Opponents to the application will have to wait until the hearing resumes to have their voices heard. “We are trying to create a framework that will attract large-scale heavy industrial users to locate on the site, create jobs, tax revenues that will – both in the in shortterm and long-term and through business development – benefit the county for many, many years to come,” said Shepherd. Port officials aren’t the

only ones making those kinds of claims. “Port Westward is very unique site. It is off the Columbia River, it has tremendous rail access and great highway access. It’s one of few sites in Oregon that has this,” said David Anzer, director of marketing

for Portland & Western Railroad. “Port Westward will be the county’s economic engine for the future.” Jobs vs. jobs Over the past two years, Seely Family Farm has grown substantially. What was a family owned and

operated business with just Seely, his wife Candy and two of their daughters responsible for everything from packaging to filling orders, now has 19 full and part-time employees, along with several more seasonal workers. Seely says that’s all about to change. “We expect to hire another 20-40 people in the Clatskanie area to help us with the chocolate. Our tea line has taken off beyond my imagination,” Seely said. “We’re looking at bringing people on to do nothing but clean tea and pack tea lines for us… I’ve got stores across the U.S. that are after our products.” The undeniable need for new jobs in Columbia County has been a strong selling point for the Port of St. Helens. To bring jobs in, the port says it needs those 957 acres rezoned. “There is no Columbia County economy without an industrial economy,” said Shepherd. “These users need hundreds of acres to support their operations... currently, the Port of St. Helens only has 82 acres available at the existing Port Westward site.” Seely cautions those new jobs will come at the

expense of existing jobs, ones he and other businesses in and around Port Westward will have to eliminate if coal export terminals or oil refineries are allowed to move in. “We are rapidly growing. If they’re successful in getting this rezoned, we’ll leave,” said Seely, who believes the rezoning could expedite the approval process for those kinds of industries. “By the time they do get it and it’s definitive, at that time we expect to have over 200 employees working for us.” Clean Columbia County member Nancy Ward thinks there is another alternative. “It’s already zoned for agriculture. Why can’t we have agricultural jobs?” Ward asked. Looking for a shortcut Despite repeated reassurances from Shepherd and port officials that rezoning the property for industrial use won’t give coal terminal projects like the one proposed and then withdrawn by Kinder Morgan, Seely and other opponents aren’t convinced. “They can say they’re going to go through all the processes, but they’ve already demonstrated by letting the Kinder Morgan coal facility and the Ambre project in,” said Seely. “The Ambre project doesn’t affect us but the Kinder Morgan project would wipe me right off the face of the earth. That’s the one that really concerns us.” County planning officials say there are no shortcuts and that any future developments would have to go through a permitting process. “This application is not for any specific use or development. It is only for the rezoning. All other uses will have to be approved by the planning commission,” said

City Planner Glen Higgins. And while the port has said it does not have any specific businesses signed up or committed to developing at Port Westward, the fight to stop Kinder Morgan, and to a lesser extent Ambre Energy, has left some distrustful of the port’s claims. “The fact that they even considered something like this shows that they don’t care about me or the blueberry farm or anyone downstream,” Seely said. Although the county commissioners have yet to cast their votes, Seely isn’t just cooling his heels. He has already begun to look into other options for his farm. Although the Clatskanie area has just under 20,000 acres of usable agricultural land (the port’s 957 acres makes up about 5 percent of that total), Seely said that land won’t meet his needs. “We have started to explore the possibility of having to move. If I had to move, I wouldn’t be allowed to put in my mint still in, I wouldn’t be allowed to have my facility for manufacturing, for processing and cleaning our tea leaves – none of that would be allowed,” he added. “Unless I were to move to Scappoose, I’m done in Columbia County. They’re forgetting to mention that.” Despite his business’s success, Seely doesn’t think it’s enough to sway the commissioners’ vote. “I really feel like it’s a sham, that they’ve already made their decision,” he said just after the public hearing. “We pay property taxes. We pay income taxes. We donate to the community. When the county commissioners asked for peppermint patties, we give them and this is what we get in return – no support.” The county commissioners’ public hearing will continue on Oct. 3, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will again be held at the Clatskanie High School, at 471 Bel Air Drive. For more information or assistance, call the commissioners’ office at 503-397-4322.

Letters School zone cameras To all visitors to Longview, Wash., please be aware that five schoolzone cameras are in place and city has not, or will not, put larger, better school zone signs or paint “School Zone” on the road so that all drivers will know they are entering a school zone. Please watch carefully for the school zones as they are poorly marked. Because speedometers are not precision instruments, please drive well below 20 mph as only the camera reading the speed counts. I will continue encouraging city officials to make our school zones safer for the children and more visible and fair for drivers. Please enjoy visiting and shopping in Longview without getting a surprise citation in the mail. John Keyser, Longview, Wash. Why bother We attended the so called “public hearing” on the subject of rezoning agricultural land around Port Westward held in Clatskanie on Sept.18. We have attended many public hearings over the years, but were not prepared for the “banana republic” style of this meeting. There was a large turnout of citizens, but the board of commissioners only listened to the testimony of people supporting the zoning change. After three hours of testimony, when every proponent had a chance to speak, the commissioners closed the meeting and offered opponents the chance to come back to Clatskanie in two weeks to offer their testimony. When opponents questioned that the com-

Opinion Speedbump

missioners weren’t going to hear a different viewpoint that night, they laughed and said time was up. The process was very disrespectful of the time and the distance people traveled to speak at the hearing. We spent three hours listening to proponents and drove 80 miles round trip from Scappoose. Now, in order to have our voices heard, we need to do that again while none of the proponents have to do that. The process was so biased against hearing both sides of the issue, it makes you wonder – why bother? Peter and Karen Leonard, Scappoose Stop the fleecing Remember a couple of years ago when the former Columbia Health District board was collecting 32 cents per $1,000 from your property taxes? For eight years this money was collected supposedly to build a hospital, which could never be built. Over $8 million of your taxes disappeared and you got fleeced. Well, guess what people? It is happening once more – only this time it is the Port of St. Helens. The port collects millions of dollars per year from your taxes, fees from tenants, leases, etc. When we bellyache about how this money is being spent, we have a right to do so. It is the public’s money. I am offended by the fact that the Port of St. Helens has an attorney, Robert Salisbury, on retainer year around. Yet the port feels it is necessary to hire an “outside” attorney to attempt to shove coal, crude oil and unit trains down your throat. Don’t let them tell you this decision is not about coal. It is exactly about coal, crude oil and unit trains. You just


got fleeced again. County Commissioners Tony Hyde, Earl Fisher and Henry Heimuller put on a show at the Clatskanie High School on Sept. 18 supposedly to have a fair and impartial hearing on the merits of rezoning Port Westward. Their show included a drawn out report by Glen Higgins of the Columbia County Land Development Services in which he made absolutely no mention of the fact that the county planning commission rejected this same rezoning proposal several months ago. They paraded speakers from the railroad companies who said what a great idea increased rail traffic would be throughout our county. Once again, no allusion to the fact that the railroad companies stand to make a mint. There also was no allusion to the fact that the railroad companies were the largest contributors to the re-election of commissioners Hyde and Fisher. They brought on the Port’s “outside” attorney who extolled the wonders of shutting down the farmlands at Port Westward and bringing on the coal, crude oil and unit trains – only not in those words. Instead he attempted to downgrade the people who are fighting to keep these aberrations from infesting our county and he fabricated the number of people who would be employed. I’m sure you got fleeced big time on this guy’s fees. So now we get to the purpose of this letter. None of the people who oppose the rezoning were allowed to speak, not their attorneys, not their representatives – nobody. The commissioners have reset a hearing date for Thursday, Oct. 3, once

again at the Clatskanie High School. Over 70 percent of those who signed in to speak are not from Clatskanie and the people of Clatskanie will not be impacted while the rest of the corridor will be severely adversely impacted. Yet the meeting will be held in Clatskanie. Don’t let the county commissioners, the Port of St. Helens or any of those who intend to make a lot of money from our county shut you down. Please attend the

second meeting. Stop the fleecing of our taxes. Nancy Whitney, St. Helens Fill the boot The Scappoose Fire District and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) would just like to thank everyone again for their kind donations on our annual “Fill the Boot” fundraising event at the intersection of Hwy. 30 and Havlik Drive, held on Sunday, Sept. 8. Thanks to our great com-

munity support and generous donations, the Scappoose Fire District was able to raise $5,334.83 this year and will go directly to the MDA to help families (and local families) in need by funding some of their medical services, research grants and support groups to name a few. We can’t thank you enough for such a great year fundraising and hope to see you all again next year. Zach Ahlers, Scappoose Fire District


Fresh eyes and a fresh perspective BY MARY HEBERLING SHEDCO coordinator

What do you get when you take a girl who grew up around a major metropolitan area – an urbanite some would say – and place her smack dab in the heart of a small, rural community like St. Helens? For starters, you get a fresh perspective with an “old-time” homey feel. It doesn’t take very long to realize you’re in a special place when you start walking around St. Helens, especially the downtown area. The Columbia Theatre lights up First Street at night, while the beautiful old courthouse lends character to the plaza. They are

visual representations of St. Helens’ past, present, and future. They tell the stories of what used to be and what will come; good stories of historic small town Oregon and the bustling fun-filled downtown of the future. Growing up in the Portland metro area, we always knew St. Helens existed, but we just didn’t have a lot of details. Most of the time I would hear news regarding the Scappoose/St. Helens community, but never just St. Helens. Sure I knew you had to pass Sauvie Island to get here, but I hadn’t been that far north on Highway 30 in over 10 years. Once I accepted a new job in Olde Towne St. Helens, I knew I would be driving past Sau-

vie Island once more. Well, realistically, probably a lot more. Moving to a town with just under 13,000 residents was a little nerve rackMary Heberling ing to be honest. I was used to walking along the streets of downtown Portland with 50 cars whizzing by or taking a streetcar to another area because walking 20 blocks was just a little too far. Running into someone you know at the grocery store

was just unheard of. This was never was this a bad thing; I was used to it. But anything new, anything that doesn’t revolve around the things you are used to and comfortable with is going to mean butterflies in the pit your stomach. However, I’ve learned that humans are amazingly adaptable creatures. Our ability to adapt and change, also lets us notice and appreciate things that may be overlooked by others. It let us bring a fresh perspective into the mix. As the new Main Street Program Coordinator for St. Helens, I hear many comments about the downtown and Columbia Boulevard areas, comments that usually focus on a dying downtown,

might not be an easy path to get there, but compare it to a difficult hike with 1,000foot elevation gain and I an amazing view at the top. I hope you’ll join me in promoting St. Helens’ potential. I am eager to become a part of this community and gain fantastic insight from you all. Let’s get excited about downtown again!

LIONEL (M) Well hello Oregon, Lionel is my name. I am a little on the thin side, but if you give me so good food and some good love, I will become a great dog. I get along with other dogs and I am a pretty easy going guy. I’ve heard ‘them’ talking they don’t really know what I am as far as my breed. I’m just a scruffy guy. I only weigh about 12 lbs, when I’m filled out I should be about 20lbs. You wanna come meet me and some of my friends soon? We are just waiting to get a new home.

the lack of support for businesses and more. As someone who hasn’t spent their entire life here or seen the changes occurring slowly over time, I’m able to look at this with fresh eyes; eyes that see the assets of the community, not its faults. I walk and talk with store owners who are some of the friendliest people I have ever met. I see buildings with plenty of potential to be great again, and I sense that small town, homey feel you can’t get just anywhere. My philosophy: why dwell on the negative when you can change it instead? Look at the downtown area with new eyes, like I have, and you’ll be able to visualize its potential. It

Obituaries Gene Ray Harrel Gene Ray Harrel, 88, of Rainier, passed away on Sept. 11 at the Canterbury Gardens assisted living facility in Longview, Wash. Gene Gene Harrel was born Sept. 6, 1925, in Trail, Okla., to Homer and Oneta (McMillien) Harrel.

He joined the U.S. Merchant Marines in 1944 where he served in World War II. On June 9, 1950, he married Gladys Fay Schoonover of Oregon City. At that time, the couple settled in the Rainier area. In the late 1960s Gene was a commercial fisherman. He retired from Boise Cascade in St. Helens in 1988. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, traveling, gardening and

more food because the needs of this community are increasing,” Gates added. “We would also like to have a teaching kitchen where we can provide nutritional education. We would like to share these facilities with other countywide non-profit organizations. We would like to form more partnerships with other organizations that share the passion for our mission.” Columbia Pacific Food Bank is the regional food bank and provides food from the Oregon Food Bank network to qualified social service agencies in Columbia County.

“We are very excited to begin this planning process and more clearly define the many opportunities that lie ahead of us,” said Gates. But change often bring challenges with it. One of those challenges – perhaps the biggest – will be raising enough funds to finance the new building. “We need to begin a capital fundraising campaign to raise the necessary funds for a new warehouse as the growing needs of the community are quickly outgrowing our current facility,” Gates noted.

economic restructuring. “The Main Street program is a small town, rural economic development program. Basically what they are trying to do is help small towns with downtown areas that over the years fell to the side as big box stores opened up,” she said. “They want to revitalize the area back to what it used to be.” While Heberling said her role will primarily focus on implementing the Main Street program here, she adds, “The great thing about SHEDCO is that it’s not limited to just Main Street, so they can branch off and do a lot of different things for the community.“ The Portland native is also looking forward to putting the public policy skills she learned while at the University of Oregon (she graduated in 2012) and as an intern to good use. “I spent a year with City of Eugene in their planning department as their communications and public

outreach planning intern.” Heberling said it was that experience with Eugene that has left her ready to dig into community development, and especially the Main Street program. “I think that experience will be very helpful for this position,” she added. ‘I’ve been learning about Main Street. I also interviewed a couple of people that did that in the Portland area and it’s always really interesting.” There’s one more role Heberling is taking over from the former Vista volunteer – the role of columnist. For the past year, Serafin had been writing a monthly column about all the happenings at SHEDCO. Heberling debuts her own monthly column is this issue (see page A5).

Pumpkin lighting marks beginning of Halloweentown The Spirit of Halloweentown officially gets underway in St. Helens on Oct. 1 with the ceremonial lighting of the great pumpkin. The statute is a replica of a stage prop used in the 1998 Disney movie, Halloweentown, which starred Debbie Reynolds. The movie was filmed in St. Helens, and inspired the original Halloweentown festivities, which have since grown into a month-long celebration. Scarecrows also begin populating the streets and sidewalks as the scarecrow contest gets underway. Local merchants place scarecrows in front of their businesses and

there is no limit to the creativity displayed. Some merchants choose a theme that represents the business. Others let their imaginations run wild. Plan on a drive around town about the second week of October for the best viewing. Awards for the contest will be given on Oct. 26 at the Columbia Theater. The historic Caples House in Columbia City hosts a harvest festival on Sept. 28 from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free, although some activities have a charge. Lunch is available. Events are planned all during October, culminating with a full slate of activities on Saturday, Oct. 26.

By reason of said default, the beneficiary has declared all sums owing on the obligation secured by said trust deed immediately due and payable, said sums being the following: UNPAID PRINCIPAL BALANCE OF $154,720.53, PLUS interest thereon at 5.75% per annum from 12/01/11 until paid, together with escrow advances, foreclosure costs, trustee fees, attorney fees, sums required for the protection of the property and additional sums secured by the Deed of Trust. WHEREFORE, notice hereby is given that the undersigned trustee, will on December 13, 2013, at the hour of 11:00 AM, in accord with the standard of time established by ORS 187.110, at THE WEST MAIN ENTRANCE OF THE ANNEX TO THE COLUMBIA COUNTY COURTHOUSE, STRAND STREET, ST. HELENS, County of COLUMBIA, State of OREGON, sell at public auction to the highest bidder for cash, the interest in the said described property which the grantor had, or had the power to convey, at the time of the execution by him of the said trust deed, together with any interest which the grantor or his successors in interest acquired after the execution of said trust deed, to satisfy the foregoing obligations thereby secured and the costs and expenses of sale, including a reasonable charge by the trustee. Notice is further given that any person named in ORS 86.753 has the right, at any time prior to five days before the date last set for the sale, to have this foreclosure proceeding dismissed and the trust deed reinstated by payment to the beneficiary of the entire amount then due (other than such portion of the principal as would not then be due had no default occurred) and by curing any other default complained of herein that is capable of being cured by tendering the performance required under the obligation or trust deed, and in addition to paying said sums or tendering the performance necessary to cure the default, by paying all costs and expenses actually incurred in enforcing the obligation and trust deed, together with trustee’s and attorney’s fees not exceeding the amounts provided by said ORS 86.753. In construing this notice, the masculine gender includes the feminine and the neuter, the singular includes the plural, the word “grantor” includes any successor in interest to the grantor as well as any other person owing an obligation, the performance of which is secured by said trust deed, and the words “trustee” and “beneficiary” include their respective successors in interest, if any. Anyone having any objection to the sale on any grounds whatsoever will be afforded an opportunity to be heard as to those objections if they bring a lawsuit to restrain the same. NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL TENANTS: The property in which you are living is in foreclosure. A foreclosure sale is scheduled for December 13, 2013. The date of this sale may be postponed. Unless the lender who is foreclosing on this property is paid before the sale date, the foreclosure will go

through and someone new will own this property. After the sale, the new owner is required to provide you with contact information and notice that the sale took place. The following information applies to you only if you are a bona fide tenant occupying and renting this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The information does not apply to you if you own this property or if you are not a bona fide residential tenant. If the foreclosure sale goes through, the new owner will have the right to require you to move out. Before the new owner can require you to move, the new owner must provide you with written notice that specifies the date by which you must move out. If you do not leave before the moveout date, the new owner can have the sheriff remove you from the property after a court hearing. You will receive notice of the court hearing. PROTECTION FROM EVICTION IF YOU ARE A BONA FIDE TENANT OCCUPYING AND RENTING THIS PROPERTY AS A RESIDENTIAL DWELLING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTINUE LIVING IN THIS PROPERTY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE FOR: • THE REMAINDER OF YOUR FIXED TERM LEASE, IF YOU HAVE A FIXED TERM LEAE; • AT LEAST 90 DAYS FROM THE DATE YOU ARE GIVEN A WRITTEN TERMINATION NOTICE. If the new owner wants to move in and use this property as a primary residence, the new owner can give you written notice and require you to move out after 90 days, even though you have a fixed term lease with more than 90 days left. You must be provided with at least 90 days’ written notice after the foreclosure sale before you can be required to move. A bona fide tenant is a residential tenant who is not the borrower (property owner) or a child, spouse or parent of the borrower, and whose rental agreement: • Is the result of an arm’s-length transaction; • Requires the payment of rent that is not substantially less than fair market rent for the property, unless the rent is reduced or subsidized due to a federal, state or local subsidy; and • Was entered into prior to the date of the foreclosure sale. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY BETWEEN NOW AND THE FORECLOSURE SALE: RENT YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO PAY RENT TO YOUR LANDLORD UNTIL THE PROPERTY IS SOLD OR UNTIL A COURT TELLS YOU OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT PAY RENT, YOU CAN BE EVICTED. BE SURE TO KEEP PROOF OF ANY PAYMENTS YOU MAKE. SECURITY DEPOSIT You may apply your security deposit and any rent you paid in advance against the current rent you owe your landlord as provided in ORS 90.367. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from you rent payment. You may do this only for the rent you owe your current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any deposit or prepaid

rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The new owner that buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out after 90 days or at the end of your fixed term lease. After the sale, you should receive a written notice informing you that the sale took place and giving you the new owner’s name and contact information. You should contact the new owner if you would like to stay. If the new owner accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the new owner becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise: • You do not owe rent; • The new owner is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf; and • You must move out by the date the new owner specifies in a notice to you. The new owner may offer to pay your moving expenses and any other costs or amounts you and the new owner agree on in exchange for your agreement to leave the premises in less than 90 days or before your fixed term lease expires. You should speak with a lawyer to fully understand your rights before making any decisions regarding your tenancy. IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO TRY TO FORCE YOU TO LEAVE YOUR DWELLING UNIT WITHOUT FIRST GIVING YOU WRITTEN NOTICE AND GOING TO COURT TO EVICT YOU. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS, YOU MAY WISH TO CONSULT A LAWYER. If you believe you need legal assistance, contact the Oregon State Bar at 800452-7636 and ask for the lawyer referral service. If you do not have enough money to pay a lawyer and are otherwise eligible, you may be able to receive legal assistance for free.

Skunks in your yard (and under your house) I visited with someone from Scappoose at the last Sauerkraut Festival and she asked me to write something about skunks. There aren’t many people that like skunks but I happen, generally, to be one of them. In Columbia County, we have both striped and spotted skunks. I have found them to be relatively calm unless provoked by a dog, coyote, raccoon, or a human. The worst situation to have contact with them is if they have a den under your house. Two skunks can get into a tussle, as can skunks and their other enemies. The results are

trailing berries like Marions and Boysens also benefit from fall copper. Most copper products require a “spreader-sticker” in the mix to provide the greatest protection. Some products like “Lilly-Miller Microcop” sell the sticker with the copper concentrate. As always, read and follow all label instructions.

Sometimes, harder surfaces can be sprayed with a skunk smell-neutralizing mixture I will give below with decent results. But spraying under the house is a bit risky to you, so be careful. The best approach is to exclude them from that space. Check your foundation for openings and tighten them up.

We’ll talk a little about what to do if you have an injury, how to nurse it back to health, and what you can do to avoid getting injured again. Let’s start with the last one, first! Injuries happen and there is no point trying to be that person who avoids getting injured at all costs. Runners know eventually you’re going to come across a pothole that somehow you didn’t see, and you’re going to twist

It doesn’t have to be that extreme either. Those brand new shoes you bought that look awesome? Yeah, about the five-mile mark you start to feel rubbing, and voila… you have the mother of all blisters on your Achilles. Weightlifters or people who do general strength training are the same. About a month ago I injured my back pretty good. While my wife, Stephanie, just grinned and said it was part of being over 40, I preferred to think it was just over-working specific muscles and I just wore out. Whatever your injury situation is, you MUST rest up and take it easy. This doesn’t mean you need to stop working out, but the injured joint or muscle must remain inactive as much as it can. Continuing to train on an injury can have significant negative effects, and in some cases can lead to far bigger problems. You can still train though! If you’ve got an ankle injury, then hit the weights. Same in reverse: You have a shoulder

out there and pound some pavement, or take a spinning class or something that will enable you to exercise without using the injured joint. If you have a bad back, or an abdominal strain, it is going to be much harder to find something to do without using that area. Some injuries are not easy! The other is to get professional help. If you’ve got an injury, and especially if it is one that is not going away very easily, or with a few days rest, it’s time to see someone who knows what they’re doing. At the studio here in Scappoose we refer clients with injuries to the wonderful folks at Erhardt Therapy. Get it looked at! You’ve only got one body, so look after it! Another thing to remember – and this is a tough one for people to understand – is don’t baby it. What do I mean by this? Well, once the injury is healed, or to a point where you can use it again, don’t shy away from it.

had knee injuries. They can be scary at times, and in some cases those people are terrified of more leg injuries. That’s normal, but you have to start working out that joint. In the knee example, get some squats in. Slowly at first, but then start working the muscles around the injury. Avoiding that joint will cause two issues. The first is that it won’t get better if you don’t build the muscles around it. The second is that you’ll put undue stress on other joints because they’re having to make up for the one you’re holding back. Whenever you have an injury, it sucks! Taking the right steps to repair yourself and get back to good health is so important in every case. Have fun working out this week, and stay safe!

Saving vegetable seeds There are some vegetable seeds that are easy to save from year to year. Beans, lettuce, peas, tomatoes, and peppers are self-pollinating and the seed will be true to what was planted if the seed wasn’t a hybrid variety. The seed packet or catalog will tell you if it was a hybrid. For tomatoes and peppers, remove seeds from the pulp of mature fruits and dry them on a paper towel. If saving more than one variety, label the paper towel. Once the seeds are dry, pry them off the towel (it’s OK if paper sticks to the seed) and put them in a labeled envelope. Store the envelopes in a freezer bag and place in a refrigerator or freezer. For beans or peas, get some mature beans and allow them to “rattle dry.” Remove the peas or beans and place them in jars or bags. For more information, ask for our Fact

No. 3 Sherwood 54, St. Helens 13

Lions in control of NWOC Bowmen look BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

In their first true test of the 2013 Northwest Oregon Conference season, the No. 2 St. Helens Lions (6-2, 4-0) aced the first two sets. A slow start hurt St. Helens in the third set against Wilsonville (3-2, 3-1), but the Lions rebounded without a hitch in the fourth set to remain undefeated in conference play. St. Helens beat Wilsonville 25-17, 25-17, 1925, 25-20. “We played well the first two games and thought if we just show we would win,” said St. Helens coach Tom Ray. “Wilsonville had an aggressive game plan during the third set and beat us. We then re-focused and took care of the match in the fourth set.” St. Helens was led by junior middle blocker Taylor Albertson’s 16 attack kills and five block kills. Senior middle blocker Gabby Susee added 13 kills and a pair of block kills. Sophomore hitter Logan Kalauli had 10 kills. “The team did really good FOOTBALL

SHERWOOD — After a 54-13 defeat to the Sherwood Bowmen (4-0, 2-0) on Sept. 20, St. Helens High School head football coach Jared Phillips was straight to the point. “Obviously they’re a very good football team. They’re the state champs. After seeing them in person, I don’t see any reason as to why they wouldn’t win the state title again this year,” Phillips said. As the Bowmen have done all season, they executed their wing-T offense to perfection against the St. Helens Lions (1-3, 0-3). Sherwood – ranked No. 1 in’s media poll and No. 3 in the OSAA Power Rankings – entered the game averaging a shade under 60 points per game and allowing nine. Two of the Bowmen’s first three opponents were ranked in the

top 10 when Sherwood dismantled them. Put simply, Sherwood is very good. The Bowmen proved that early, scoring the game’s first 47 points. Still, Phillips was encouraged that his team stayed competitive and put up a long touchdown drive on Sherwood’s starting defensive unit in the third quarter. Senior quarterback Gage Bumgardner capped the drive with a one-yard run. Even when Sherwood answered that score with a touchdown of its own, the Lions stayed focused. “I thought Lucas Bone and Brennan Norton stayed very positive and continued to encourage their teammates to continue to battle no matter what the scoreboard said. That was encouraging to see that kind of leadership from a couple of seniors who are contributing to our cause,” Phillips said. See SHHS, Page A15

No. 5 Central 22, Scappoose 14

Indians’ offense batted down BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

INDEPENDENCE — Normally a passing team will struggle when the opposing defense puts the quarterback under a lot of pressure. The Central Panthers (3-1) employed the exact opposite strategy on Sept. 20 and it kept the high-octane offense of the Scappoose Indians (3-1) in check. Central batted down several Scappoose passes at the line of scrimmage en route to a 22-14 win. Fourteen points was well below the 49 points per game Scappoose was averaging coming into the game. Senior receiver Justice Oman said the early success may have negatively affected the Indians. “I think our team probably came out a little cocky from the wins we had before. We didn’t come out very strong. Our practices were a little sluggish. We gotta practice like how we play and just come out strong next week. We don’t want to lose again,” Oman said. Oman’s coach, Sean McNabb, took responsibility for that. “Second half, we played harder, played with more urgency. I don’t feel like we did that in the first half. That’s a reflection on me. I take responsibility for that. The second half, we played well with our backs against the wall,” McNabb said. Central put Scappoose in a tough position by scoring the game’s first 22 points. The Panthers scored on a deep pass

Late scores save St. Helens twice BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

Goals in the closing minutes – or even seconds – saved the No.6 St. Helens Lions (22-1) twice last week. St. Helens sophomore Ashley Giesbers’ goal with two seconds on the clock salvaged a tie against Forest Grove (30-1) on Sept. 17. Two nights later, senior Patricia Galvan drilled a left-footed gamewinner in the 77th minute against Woodburn (3-3). St. Helens was riding high on the momentum of those two games into the weekend, when for the first time in school history the team reached No. 1 in the OSAA Power Rankings. Unfortu-

nately for the Lions, this trip was a short-lived one. St. Helens dropped a hard-fought 21 decision to South Albany (3-2-1) on Sept. 23. The Rebels took a 1-0 lead three minutes into the match. Continuing with the trend of late goals, Giesbers got the equalizer for St. Helens just two minutes before halftime. Following a corner kick, Giesbers had the ball about 10 yards in front of the net, spun and sent it into the net. For the game’s final 35 minutes, St. Helens was forced to play down a player after one was ejected. The match took on a physical nature that left St. Helens coach Simon Date frustrated. He was issued a

Scappoose speeds up at home of state meet EUGENE — Without a full team and with some illness spreading throughout the runners present, the Scappoose Indian boys cross country team still finished seventh out of 19 teams at the Northwest Classic at Lane Community College on Sept. 21. The course covered much of the same terrain as the course for the state meet, although by rule teams are not allowed to run the exact state course except for during the state competition. “But for comparison purposes, it is obviously very similar,” said Scappoose coach David Harley. Three Indians in particular greatly improved their times from last year’s state meet: Charlie Davidson, Dan Carrier and Jacob Harley. Davidson, a senior, competed on her own in the 5A/6A competition and finished 16th out of 157 competitors. Her time of 19:27 was exactly 30 seconds faster than the time she ran while finishing seventh at the 2012 4A state competition. Carrier’s 11th-place finish

led the boys team. The junior improved by 13 seconds from last season’s state meet. Harley, also a junior, improved by nearly a minute from the state meet. His 18:15 time placed him 41st out of 142 and third for the Scappoose team. Senior Hunter Hoyt crossed the finish line in 18:12. David Harley said junior Rachel Bode “ran a strong race and will get even better.” Bode finished 37th out of 190 entries in her race. “Illnesses affected some performances also, so I thought we ran pretty well all things considered,” Harley said. “We need to get better obviously if we want to defend our league titles, so how we mentally and physically approach the next two weeks with some big competition will tell us a lot.” Tillamook’s up-andcoming team finished third in the boys meet.

Examining the evolution of Scappoose’s spread BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle


cappoose quarterbacks have made a habit of putting up big numbers. In each of the last four seasons, Tribe QBs have passed for more than 2,000 yards and that number has hovered around 2,500 each of the last three. Those yards – as one would expect – equate to points in bunches. The Indians have averaged better than 30 points per game in six of their eight seasons since moving from 3A to 4A. This season, Scappoose is averaging 40.5 points per game – tied for third in the state of Oregon at the 4A level. The trend dates back to when current Carolina Panther quarterback Derek Anderson played for Scappoose around the turn of the century. Having a once-in-a-generation talent lining up under center is clearly a good way to jumpstart an offense. But maintaining that high level of production through the next nine starting QBs takes something more. When Sean McNabb joined the Scappoose High School coaching staff, the Indians ran their offense out of the wishbone. McNabb – then an assistant – gradually started installing more and more multiplereceiver sets. By the time Anderson was in high school, the Indians were lining up with four wide receivers and a single running back on essentially every down. “Then you evolve from there,� McNabb said. “Now it’s all no-

In Scappoose’s spread offense, it is important for quarterback Taylor Loss to make the correct read before the snap and distribute the ball quickly.

huddle, fast as you can go, shotgun. We’ve come a long way from the old days when we were under center.� The offense has come so far that current quarterback Taylor Loss – in his second season as a starter – hasn’t taken a snap from under center. “Against Roosevelt we wanted to kneel the ball at the end of the half. We still did it out of the gun,� said Scappoose quarterbacks coach Ryan Svenson. “We have not practiced an underneath exchange all year.�

There’s no reason to – it’s all shotgun, all the time. And most of the time, it’s hurry-up. That allows the Indians to run a lot of plays and in turn, score a lot of points. If Loss continues producing at his current pace, he’ll end his career as one of the top two or three QBs in SHS history in terms of passing yards and touchdowns. While those two areas are where the glory lies, there are many more responsibilities he’s faced with. Because the Indians never huddle, Loss has to get the play signaled in from the sideline between


each snap. Then he needs to relay that information to his teammates. As he’s calling out the plays, he’s also reading the opposing defense. Based on what he sees before the ball is snapped, he pretty much knows where the ball is going to go. “If we have three receivers to one side and see two defenders, we want to attack that. If we see one defender on our single receiver, we have some pretty good guys out there, we want to go after that. If they’re gonna load up on the perimeter and try to take away our perimeter game or screen game, we’re gonna run inside zone,� McNabb said. If Loss’ read tells him he should indeed pass the ball, he then has to figure out where the ball is going to go. Usually, it’s not going to go far. In the Tribe’s first two games this season, 24 of the 53 pass attempts were thrown to a receiver within two yards of the line of scrimmage. Only 16 passes were thrown more than 10 yards past the line of scrimmage. “My guess is 75 percent of our passes are within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage,� Svenson said. (That changed against Rainier, when 15 of the 23 pass attempts were thrown 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.) The premise behind the short passes is simple. “Our thing’s always been to get our guys the ball in space and let them make plays,� Svenson said. It’s been working well so far this season. Through four games, Scappoose has three receivers – seniors

Justice Oman and Nick Rust, and junior Jacob Wendelschafer – with more than 100 receiving yards. Oman and Rust are both over the 200-yard mark. Oman’s 457 yards have him fourth in the state at any level. Although the Indians don’t track yards after catch, Oman does much of his damage once the ball is already in his hands. “We’re pretty fortunate. With the offense we run, I think that it attracts those type of kids. You run double-wing, you’re probably not gonna attract those types of athletes,� McNabb said. “I think that when you run an offense like that, you’re throwing for 3,000 yards, have receivers catching 50-plus balls, that’s not bad.� But the receivers have more responsibility than catching and running. “They definitely have to block. That’s something – with our receiver screens – they have to be willing to block,� McNabb said. Those blocks help the other receivers rack up yards after the catch. They also help running backs like senior Carson Davison get extra yards on plays when Loss decides to hand off rather than throw. Davison is in the midst of another impressive season, averaging 119 yards from scrimmage per game. Even with the majority of Scappoose’s offense coming through the air, there’s still ample opportunity to pick up rushing yards. Just not as many as when McNabb walked in to help coach a wishbone team.

Tribe looking toward league After a challenging nonleague schedule, the Scappoose Indians (1-3) are ready to get the Cowapa League season underway this week. The Indians notched their first win of 2013 last week with a 2-1 victory over the visiting Molalla Indians (1-3-1). That victory was followed by a 4-0 loss to Oregon Episcopal School (5-0-2). Against Molalla, Scappoose coach Nick Heffernan found a combination in the midfield he thinks the team can build around. Sophomores Lauren Frank, Lucy Davidson and Natalie Muth played together in the middle.

“Lucy, Lauren and Natalie work so well together. It was their first time all playing a central midfield role. Their link-up was great and they kept looking to each other to play triangle passes,� Heffernan said. Two of those three directly contributed to the team’s first goal. Davidson played a through ball that Frank finished for a 1-0 lead. Molalla answered not long after. Then, in the second half, Frank put a corner kick in front of the net, where sophomore Eleanor Jones headed it in for a goal. “The second (goal) was a

coach’s dream,� Heffernan said. “We worked on set pieces at practice and the girls know which runs they are making and at which moment. I have drilled into them that in every game, we do not lose headers.� Against O.E.S., the Aardvarks took advantage of a miscommunication between the Indians’ goalkeeper and defender for a 1-0 lead just 45 seconds into the match. O.E.S. added another goal in the match’s third minute. Now Scappoose’s attention turns toward capturing yet another league title. The Indians start the league season with two matches on the road this week. Scappoose was at Banks (2-1) on Sept. 24 and goes to Seaside (3-0-1) on Sept. 26 for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff. – Kyle Boggs

Scappoose starts Cowapa League play on the road at 7 p.m. on Sept. 27 against the Banks Braves (4-0). Last year Scappoose beat Banks for the first time since 2006, taking a 54-29 win.

WHO’S NEXT? BANKS BRAVES The eighth-ranked Banks Braves (4-0) have scored more than 30 points in all four of their games and have allowed more than 13 just once. They’re coming off a two-game stretch in which they’ve outscored opponents 89-9. “Ben [Buchanan] does a good job over there. They seem to be right in the thick of things year in and year out,� said SHS coach Sean McNabb. “They’re always solid, well coached, have some decent athletes.� This year’s version of the Braves has adopted a spread offense and is throwing the ball more than in years past. Banks’ offense runs through 6-2, 190-pound senior quarterback Garrett Markham. Markham averages 160 yards a game through the air and is the team’s leading rusher with 61.5 yards per game. McNabb said the Braves are aggressive on defense as well. “It’s a great challenge, a great way to start the Cowapa League,� McNabb said. “I’m confident we’ll bounce back.� Last meeting: Sept. 28, 2012.

Scappoose looked ready to make it a one-score game in the third quarter, moving the ball down to the Central 1-yard line before the Panthers recovered an Indian fumble. The Tribe put together its best drive of the game the first time it touched the ball in the fourth quarter. Scappoose took over on its own 6-yard line. After an incomplete pass, Loss completed passes to Oman on four straight plays to move the ball out to Central’s 39-yard line. “Coach just kind of mixed up our plays a little bit. We were trying to draw their safeties off a certain place so we could get the ball to us. Our dig route was working pretty good on them. We were just trying to get across the middle on them and it seemed to be working nice,� Oman said. Oman was Scappoose’s biggest weapon all game, finishing with 12 catches for 166 yards. “I thought Justice had a great game. We definitely got

1ST GOAL: Galvan gets hers at good time

St. Helens senior Andreas Rahbek gathers control of the ball during a Sept. 23 game against South Albany.

SHHS is searching for its first victory A tough start to the 2013 season continued for the St. Helens Lions (0-5) last week. It looked as though the team would secure its first victory with a home match against the Roosevelt Roughriders (3-3). St. Helens took a 4-1 lead thanks to a pair of goals from sophomore Luis Gonzalez and one apiece from senior Logen McCray and sophomore Ryan Ward. Roosevelt, however, managed to put four goals into the

net over the final 30 minutes of the match for a 5-4 win. The Lions couldn’t rebound from that loss in either of their next two matches – both defeats. Madison (1-2-1) took a 5-0 win at home against St. Helens. Then the visiting South Albany Rebels (6-0) won 4-1 on Sept. 23. St. Helens has one more non-conference match before getting into league play. The Lions go to Hermiston (2-3) on Sept. 25.

yellow card for discussing those frustrations with the official. South Albany eventually added a second goal. “A loss is a loss, and teaching the girls some class is important. It’s hard to say, credibly, that the better team lost without sounding like sour grapes, but it did,� Date said. Against Woodburn, St. Helens took a 1-0 lead on a goal from sophomore Nicole Hamilton. Hamilton started the season as a defender but was moved up to attack. She wasn’t the only defender contributing on offense, as Galvan is usually a defender as well. “I never play forward, so this was my first goal. And it feels really good,� Galvan said. Galvan’s first varsity goal couldn’t have come at a better time. After Woodburn scored on a penalty kick early in the second half, the two teams went back and forth for more than 25 minutes. Then, with under four minutes to play, Galvan gathered a pass from sophomore Lydia Reardon near the top of the 18-yard box, turned and fired a leftfooted shot into the net. “I was like, if I miss this, it’s gonna stay 1-1. But if I make it, we win,� Galvan said. Once she shot it, there was no question it was going in. “That was a sweet goal,

that was a great goal. She just turned and hit it,� Date said. Giesbers played the part of savior against Forest Grove in a strange match. The Vikings led for all but nine seconds of the match, after scoring seven seconds in. “We had a great warm-up and looked good. We came in right before kickoff and I

stressed how important it was to get at them and get goals early,� said Date. “In hindsight, I should have stressed defending early, also.� Then, with just two seconds left on the clock, sophomore Ashley Giesbers tied the match. Reardon sent the ball ahead to Giesbers, who put a couple

touches on it before squeaking it past the goalkeeper. “That’s Ashley. She doesn’t know how to quit, and big players show up in big games, and they don’t get much bigger than Ashley when it comes to having that drive to win,� Date said. Date added that the thing he was most pleased with was the fitness of his players. The Lions made only two substitutions throughout the course of the game, compared to 24 for the Vikings. “They threw wave after wave of fresh players at us and the girls just kept plugging away at their game. I was so proud of how much fitness and drive our girls had,� Date said. “This was a game of attrition, and we never quit running. We’ll get beat on technical stuff this season, but there isn’t a team in this league that will be able to hang with us in terms of heart and fitness.� St. Helens is at home against Hermiston (1-3) at 4 p.m. on Sept. 25. St. Helens then plays at Barlow High School (3-1-1) at 7 p.m. on Sept. 30.

Lions using new technology to track movement

The St. Helens girls soccer team tracks its players’ in-game running using miCoach from Adidas. It’s a small chip that a handful of players insert in their shoes and it tracks their movement through the course of the game. Once the game is completed, coach Simon Date uploads the data from all the chips onto a computer.

Against Woodburn, Nicole Hamilton covered the most ground among those chipped. Over the course of the 80minute game, she covered 6.6 miles – more than a 10K run. She also ran 43 sprints – which are defined as high-intensity runs of more than 15 yards. The fastest she ran at any point in the game was 16.85 miles per hour.

It’s an interesting coaching tool. And for competitive athletes, it provides a new challenge to conquer. A player might want to run farther or faster each game or be sure to produce more sprints than a teammate. Read more about miCoach in Kyle’s Sports Blog at

SHHS: Bumgardner solid on ‘O’ and ‘D’ LIONS: hold Mustangs to 30 total points

The Lions tacked on another touchdown in the fourth quarter when Bumgardner found senior receiver Devon Jewett open in the end zone from 12 yards out. Bumgardner finished the game as the team’s leading rusher with six carries for 59 yards. Through the air he was 10-of-22 for 70 yards. He also picked off a pass on the defensive side of the ball. Senior Tanner Long led the team on defense with seven total tackles – four of them solo tackles. Sherwood did most of its damage on the ground, running the ball 15 times for 277 yards and four scores.

Skate Clatskanie man convicted on multiple counts of rape, sex abuse park plans back on track BY SHARI PHIEL The Chronicle

SCAPPOOSE — Plans to replace Scappoose’s skate park near city hall ran into VRPH GHOD\V WKDW RIĂ€FLDOV DUH KRSHIXO WKH\ KDYH Ă€QDOO\ resolved. Earlier this year, Grindline Skateparks based in Seattle was awarded a contract with the city through a competitive bid process with an expected completion date of May 31 for a new 4,900 square foot skate park.

A Clatskanie man arrested in 2011 and charged with multiple counts of rape, sodomy and sex abuse has been convicted on 46 separate counts.

St. Helens boys are 9th while running for fun WARRENTON — With mud pits making good times difficult, history has taught St. Helens High School cross country coach Gerry Tinkle to treat the Three Course Challenge as a fun meet more so than one in which personal record times are chased. “I don’t put a lot of pressure to perform well, just run hard and have fun,” Tinkle said. With no pressure riding on them, the St. Helens boys put forth an impressive showing. The five Lions who ran the hard course combined to finish ninth out of 41 teams. Those runners were senior Bryan Strang – who led the team by finishing 28th overall out of 450 competitors – senior Tanner Boyle, senior Tanner Matlock, sophomore Jarret Boynton and senior Christian Effray. The rest of the Lion boys were split between the medium course and the easy course. The girls, on the other hand, were short-handed. St.

Helens was missing four of its top seven runners. The leaders for the Lion girls were freshman Josie Hanna (finished 61st out of 373 racers) on the easy course,

junior Kiana Pense (147 out of 276) on the medium course and junior Jenny Prevish (224 out of 261) on the hard course. St. Helens hosts a Northwest Oregon Conference meet

Indians reduce goals allowed Scappoose rallies to split In 2012, the Scappoose Indians faced Molalla and Oregon Episcopal School for their third and fourth games of the season. Both teams topped the Tribe 11-0. In 2013, the Indians (0-4) were on the road against the Molalla Indians (3-2) for their third game and played at O.E.S. (5-0) in the fourth game. While Scappoose couldn’t turn the tables completely in either game, the margin of defeat was slimmer both times. Molalla beat Scappoose 5-0 and O.E.S. won 4-0. “My goal going in was to reduce the goals allowed by half, which we did,” said Scappoose coach Scott Stanton. The Tribe got off five shots in goal in the first half alone

against the host Indians, but couldn’t get any past the goalkeeper. Stanton said his keeper, Isaac Hamm, did a good job of limiting Molalla to two firsthalf goals. “He was really putting his body on the line to keep some of their shots out of the goal,” Stanton said. Scappoose started a bangedup back line against O.E.S. David Bradley made his first start of the season after breaking his collarbone twice in the summer, and Scotty Toejnes was playing with 10 stitches in his forehead after splitting it open in practice the day prior. Stanton said the midfield did a nice job of keeping up with the Aardvarks’ fast pace. “I loved watching our boys be able to step it up, transition

quickly between attacking and defending, which made for a lot of continuous sprinting up and back on their part, and winning some tackles and breaking up the play in the middle of the field,” he said. Stanton said the team still needs to improve its attacking movement off the ball before heading into league this week. “But if we can keep up the intensity and maintain our focus like we did this past week, I think we’ll find a lot more success in our league this season,” Stanton said. Both of the Indians’ games this week are at home. Scappoose played against Banks (22) on Sept. 24 and plays Seaside (1-2) at 4:15 p.m. on Sept. 26. – Kyle Boggs

first two league matches BY KYLE BOGGS The Chronicle

A three-set loss to the No. 6 Astoria Fishermen (6-1, 20) on Sept. 17 bled into a dropped first set against the Tillamook Cheesemakers (3-4, 0-2) on Sept. 19. Then the Scappoose Indians (5-5, 1-1) righted the ship and rattled off wins in three straight sets to start the Cowapa League season with a split. Scappoose beat Tillamook 20-25, 25-20, 25-21, 2515. “I was pleased with how the team rebounded from an

opening league loss,” said coach Mark Sprenger. “It was a battle but we prevailed in the end.” The Indians served up five aces, but had nine missed serves. “I think if we served better the scores would not have been as close. We missed a lot of serves at critical times,” Sprenger said. The team’s passing was at 90 percent against the Cheesemakers. Astoria topped Scappoose 25-20, 25-13, 25-13. “Astoria is a very talented volleyball team. We had a tough time scoring

points,” Sprenger said. “I give them credit for their defense. We served great, but we will need to serve much tougher next time we play them.” The coach said in order to beat the Fishermen next time, his squad will need to pass better and look for some holes in their defense. This week Scappoose was on the road for two league contests. Scappoose played at No. 7 Banks (8-3, 2-0) on Sept. 24 and is at Seaside (3-6, 0-2) on Sept. 26. The Indians play in a tournament at Cottage Grove on Sept. 28.
