Falsehoods called out at Winlock Council Meeting

Bryce Cline scores!

Cline pushes Winlock Basketball forward

On January 8, the Winlock Cardinals axed the Onalaska Loggers with a score of 62-46. Winlock Senior Bryce Cline earned and then surpassed his 1,000 career points. Many of Cline’s personal fan club donned t-shirts marking this milestone. The packed Winlock High School gymnasium honored Cline with a standing ovation. Cline ended the night with 23 points while teammates Coleson Richendollar scored 14 points, Nolan Swofford earned 14 points, Noah Patching had 8 points and Landon Tiemens with 3. Winlock is now tied for first place with Toutle Lake with a 3-0 league record. Two nights later the Cardinals beat Mossyrock with a score of 75-36. The Cardinals hosted Hoquiam on January 15 for a non-conference game. Congratulations to Bryce Cline, teammates, and coaches.

By Lynnette Hoffman The Winlock City Council meetings are anything but boring these days. The council chambers are full of concerned citizens. The council is trying to make changes, but it seems as though the mayor and city attorneys are trying to stop them. The meeting started with items being added to the agenda by Council Member Anne Randt. Mayor Bradshaw interrupted, “I thought we made a determination we would not make any on the spot adjustments on the budget or on the agenda?” He continued, “that was a ruling and if you want to change that then you have to put that on the agenda for the next meeting.” Mayor Bradshaw even used the words he was going to ‘overrule’ any changes to the agenda. Mayor Bradshaw can not overrule anything on the agenda. The added items were: budget, resignations of city council member, the resignation of the city attorney, and the city clerk along with looking at other municipal court options. City Attorney Sam Satterfield stated they could not take action on any item added. This is also incorrect. The city council, per Municipal Research, can add and vote on items added on the agenda but should take caution when it will affect the public. The acceptance of resignations does not impact the public,

nor does looking at options for a municipal court. At the beginning of the meeting, Mayor Bradshaw did not mention that Connie Sneed had resigned, he waited to tell the citizens minutes into the meeting. Mayor Bradshaw stated he heard from the city attorney that Connie Sneed has resigned her position, she did not speak with the mayor and resigned through the city attorney. Then later in the meeting, Mayor Bradshaw contradicted himself, “I talked with her and she resigned because she could not take the harassment.” Former Councilor Connie Sneed had resigned on a messenger post to individuals, including city council member Eric Contreas. Council Member Randt during council comments read a lengthy statement, she stated the previous council meeting was a disaster due to the city staff and the mayor using foul language. She brought up the fact that every volunteer organization has had difficulty with dealing with city hall since Mayor Bradshaw has taken office. Not just one group, but mostly all of the volunteer organizations have had a problem with Mayor Bradshaw and city staff. They are: Small Acts of Kindness, WIN, Winolequa Garden Club, Lions/Lioness and now Weld on Stake Pockets the Winlock Park Board. Mayor Bradshaw has negatively impacted almost every volunteer organization in Winlock, causing grief

every time they try to have an event. The Winlock Park board lost four members they can’t afford to lose, they have been in charge of the park board for years. This park board has spent countless hours mowing and keeping our parks beautiful. It’s a sad time when Winlock loses people of this caliber. The Winlock Park Board no longer has a quorum and can not meet. At the end of her speech Randt stated, “Mr. Mayor with all due respect, I have no confidence in your ability to lead this city without dividing it. Dividing and conquering works with the Military but not in our tightknit community.” Randt received loud applause from the audience. Councilor Brandon Svenson spoke on the volunteers, “we can not do without our volunteers. They are what make the

community; this makes me sad.” Mayor Bradshaw then spoke and stated the reason for their resigning was the ‘new council’ which brought a loud boo from the audience. Holly Orbino got up and said, ‘I have Sally’s resignation, that is not what she said.” The Mayor then spoke on the community building stating the “IRS found out that the Lions Club was leasing the building for a for-profit corporation.” Viola Rowton, former President of the Lions Club stood up and stated: “I was audited by the IRS and that was not a true statement, we were all fine.” At one point Brandon Svenson stated “another lie by Mayor Bradshaw, shocker.” This was just the first hour of the meeting, mayor and council comments See Meeting Page 4

Letters to the Editor

School Board Recognition Month To the Editor, By proclamation of the governor, January is School Board Recognition Month. It’s a great time to recognize our elected community members who selflessly give their time and energy in support of high-quality public schooling for our youth. School board members in Toledo School Dis-

trict are entrusted by this community with responsibility for an annual budget of $11.6 million, 830 students, 112 employees, and six buildings. School boards are charged with making decisions that can sometimes be quite difficult or require sifting through a great deal of information. They also bear responsibility for developing a vision that will guide the school district for years to come. Through collaboration as a team, and with school district staff,

their governance and advocacy are building the future of education in Washington state. This January, we’re encouraging all members of the community to thank a board member. Please thank them for volunteering their time and playing a critical civic role that helps form the bedrock of our democracy—public education. As a crucial bridge between the local community and the school district, their efforts are instrumental in helping all of us realize the hopes and dreams we have for the children of our community.

along with staff reports took up almost an hour. This meeting illustrated that for each falsehood brought up, the citizens and council will now call it out. This council is going to be transparent and take the time for the citizens to hear the business of the city. Mayor Bradshaw is not in control of council meetings anymore and this new council is showing him what transparency means.

How to increase salmon runs in the Cowlitz River To the Editor, An article was written in Saturday’s, December 28th edition of the Centralia Chronicle concerning monies being awarded to salmon recovery in Lewis County. The Cowlitz Indian Tribe will be receiving close to $600,000 to restore habitat on the Cispus River and Yellow Jacket Creek. For Salmon to reach these locations, they must first be collected at the Cowlitz Salmon Hatchery, then trucked miles past three man made lakes and deposited back into the river in East Lewis County, near Packwood. After these fish spawn the smolt have no path back to the ocean. This does nothing to enhance salmon runs.



The state officials allocating these funds know nothing about restoring salmon runs. They are being manipulated by lobbyists to gain state funds to line their own pockets with useless projects such as this. If the state really wanted to increase fish runs on the Cowlitz River, two major things must occur. First, the fish hatcheries must increase smolt productions to 110%. Second, predators such as sea lions, seals and fish eating birds need to be reduced in numbers. Until these two things happen, fish numbers will continue to decline. Time is not on our side. Over the last decade, fish numbers on the Cowlitz River have declined to alarmingly low numbers. If state officials continue to be in the dark to solve our fish decline, our fish will be no more.

Mike Barnett, Winlock

No Egg Day Queen in 2020? by Misti Mayo The Egg Day Queen has been a part of Winlock’s Egg Day Celebration since 1937. Aside from the four years Egg Day was postponed during WWII, this is the first year we are facing the possibility of there not being an Egg Day Queen (or King). Why a Royal Court? The royal court has the

tee is in need of an immediate replacement volunteer to oversee our Royalty Program. Additionally, at least two more volunteers are needed to assist this person - they will act as senior court and junior court co-coordinators. If there are no volunteers by the end of February there will be no 2020 court. It is hopeful these posi-

tions will be filled sooner rather than later - if not for this season, then for the preparation of our 2021 celebration. For details of what the Royalty Coordinator and Co-Coordinators do please contact by e-mail at officialeggday@gmail.com or facebook.com/winlockeggdays

In December, the Egg Day Committee suffered a very sudden and unfortunate loss of the Royalty Coordinator. The commit-

include a new commons room and spirit hall. The locker rooms are to be refurbished along with the gym and library. Although with all the new things happening to the school and gym, students wonder, especially the class of 2020 seniors, where will their graduation ceremony take place? Ideas to come up have been the football field and Grade School gym, but the location has not yet been confirmed. The Coffee House in the high school is growing in popularity. Each

monthly event held in the Coffee House offers new talent to the increasing audience. Comedy, singing, instrumental performances, poetry, even art displays are performed around the commons area. The fourth Coffee House event is planned for the month of January. Many people are hoping that the Coffee House could once again be as big as it was in years past.

By Melanie Langley The Napavine Knowledge Bowl Team has gained quite a few new members for this season. Mostly consisting of seniors, this group of students answer various trivia questions on multiple different subjects in competitive matches. The team meets twice a week during high school lunch. We meet in the art room where our advisor, Peter Larson, teaches. At these practices, the team splits up into different groups to simulate an oral round at a knowledge bowl meet.

Napavine FFA Chapter holds local bingo night

Photo by Melanie Langley David Rutherford and Lela Stewart running the bingo night.

By Melanie Langley Thursday, November 14, the Napavine FFA Chapter held their very first bingo night in the high school gym. There was a great turn out and many people came to enjoy it. It wasn’t just bingo though, there was also a

silent auction that guests could bid on a variety of items, and the Napavine Jazz Ensemble played two sets that they have been preparing. Upon arrival, guests would either show their prepaid tickets or pay at the door. After entering the gym, guests were greeted

by student members of the FFA and they could buy bingo cards before sitting down or looking around at the other activities offered. The night started with the Jazz Ensemble playing their first set, consisting of five songs. Guests could enjoy the music, check out prizes set out in front of the stage, bid on silent auction items, indulge in the free popcorn being offered or pay for other snacks at the concessions stand. All tables were filled up before the first round of bingo games. After the Jazz Band finished their first set, David Rutherford and Lela Stewart began the bingo games. There were 20 prizes for the winners, one being a fairly large prize for the winner of ‘black out.’ Prizes consisted of baskets of different items such as gift cards, snack food and candy, clothing apparel, card games, and beauty items.

At the first meet, A-Team received a 3rd place standing in the Third Flight and moved up to the Second Flight for the second meet. The second meet didn’t go quite as well as the first one did, but the team is looking to improve and plans on doing better for the next meet. Every day at practice or a meet is a learning experience in many ways. Experience is gained working with other people, learning some cool facts that you never knew before, and learning more about your teammates. Students keep participating in the Knowledge Bowl because it’s fun and you bond with the people around you over random knowledge. All in all, the Napavine Knowledge Bowl Team appears to be having a great, fun season.

During an oral round, there are 2-3 teams competing against each other. An advisor asks a question and gives the teams 5 seconds to ring in to answer. Once rung in, a team has 15 seconds to talk with their teammates and come to a consensus. The team captain must answer before their 15 seconds are up. Points are added at the end, one point for each right answer. At practices, scores aren’t counted. Everyone tries to be the first ones with the right answer and have fun learning new things. Meets are once a month, NovemberJanuary, for regular season. Districts are after that. In the years past, Napavine has gone to at least one district meet, and hope to pull that off again. The team is a little less experienced this year, but has the commitment to go far.

Half of the prizes were given away and then a break was given to enjoy another set of jazz music. That was also the last chance to bid on an item in the silent auction. There were also three lamps for sale and their bases were made from old instruments. These lamps were made by FFA members in

Napavine high school welcome new art class By Melanie Langley Last year after our past art teacher at Napavine High School moved away, we weren’t planning on having an art program for the rest of this school year. Spanish teacher Peter Larson, however, didn’t let that happen. He decided to take on one art class. This one class takes place during 5th period. Peter Larson made a lot of changes and teaches in a different style, so it’s a new experience for our art students here in Napavine. This semester he started out with a sketching unit because he observed that his students needed prac-

tice in laying out a picture. Afterward, they had a calligraphy unit where they used pen and ink to get their desired finished look. Then they did a color theory unit with watercolor where they discussed color theory in lessons and practiced with painting in watercolor. And finally, they are wrapping up the semester with acrylic painting. At the beginning of the semester, Larson didn’t give much leeway with a ton of assignments. He wanted them to focus on gaining skills. As time went on and they learned more he gave them more creative freedom with assignments so that they can create what

they want. Other than class assignments, he does assign homework in the class. Each student was given a sketchbook and they must complete 4 sketches each week. This is so that they continuously work on improving control and other skills as well. Along with regular art lessons, Larson also wants to help students understand what careers they can go into with art and what markets they can make money from with creativity. He also had a Cornish College of Arts representative come to talk to art students about what they can do post-high school with art.

As a first-time art teacher, he says that it’s challenging and so much different from teaching Spanish. He’s learning too, although he does have the experience to answer most questions students have. And when he doesn’t have an answer or needs some advice his mother in law is a college art teacher, so he goes to her. In the future, Larson hopes to grow the class to an independent study or a more advanced type of class where students can work on their own larger-scale projects. He is planning on

Winlock offers job shadowing; Cline scores his 1000th point By Taylor Ruiz Winlock students are back in school and jumping straight back into action. TRIO members and other students have been invited to participate in a job shadowing field trip in which they can get the job shadowing hours they need in order to graduate. Students merely sign a permission slip in order to immerse themselves in an amazing opportunity to watch their desired futures lived right in front of them. The day covers almost every job imaginable and is perfect for narrowing down job possibilities for the future. In addition, Hi-cap students are also expanding their horizons, as they plan

with their new advisor, Meghan Evander, to visit amazing job opportunities and museums in order to see what amazing prospects they could attain in every branch of science and art. Many amazing trips and quite possible contests await them. The Boys basketball team has had three games since the new year began, but none so influencing as the home game against Onalaska. As well as an amazing finish of 62-46, Bryce Cline scores his 1000th point. This is a huge success for a player who only played three years, and is an amazing height of his senior year. The High School knowledge bowl team

is preparing to compete in their final knowledge bowl meet for the school year. Each meet has earned them at least one placing team this year, and there is much hope for the champions to be from Winlock this meet. At the knowledge bowl meets, every brain cell is put to the test with questions ranging from academic recollection to politics. Each correct answer earns a group a point. Teams with the most points win. This year, luckily, there are more practices and chances for preparation with their new advisor, Profe Baity, the Winlock Spanish teacher. She has truly contributed much to the team.
