Union woodworkers approve new contract ending threat to strike

Weyerhaeuser and Woodworkers W-24 continued negotiations over the weekend of July 28. Union members spent the past week voting throughout Oregon and Washington on the newest contract offered by Weyerhaeuser. The negotiations continued as tensions grew after Weyerhaeuser had provided what they said would be their final offer. The Herald learned that this past friday after all votes were tallied the contract was approved finally ending the threat of a looming strikes. Weyerhaeus-

Giants in the Trees shook the festival

By GEORGE KUNKE The Willapa Festival “was an awesome success,” according to co-chairperson Kaley Hanson of the three-day Raymond event, which took place last Friday through Sunday primarily at Third Street Park. Michelle Layman was also a co-chair for the event. “This was the best festival we've had,” Hanson, who has worked several Willapa Festivals, told the Herald. “It was a huge success and it keeps getting better and better. We had more vendors than we've ever had and there were lots of people here. Everyone had an awesome time. It was the best year we've ever had. We had a lot of fantastic music.” The highlight of the music was Giants in the Trees, which featured former Nirvana bassist/vocalist Krist Novoselic. The band is backing up the Foo Fighters September 1 at Safeco Field. “They had an awesome light show and the music was awesome,” Hanson added. The band performed for approximately 1½ hours. Barrett Jones, a producer/engineer/

mixer for several Nirvana and Foo Fighters albums, and many other bands, worked the Raymond show with Giants in the Trees, according to Hanson. The Steve Brown Band also provided some solid guitar riffs, as did many other artists. The annual festival featured an assortment of things for many, including an abundance amount of music (18 artists), food and craft vendors (11), a beer garden to lift your spirits, the Willapa Home Brew Contest, the Classic Car Show and Crosstown Cruise, a community dance, karaoke, a quilt show, and sporting events such as a softball tournament, a cornhole tournament and the Superhero 5K Run and Kids 1K Walk/Run. There were carriage rides, kids train rides, a free swim, bingo, a parade, bouncies for kids, and if you needed to cool off, a water shower, Some of the featured food events were a salmon dinner, BBQ, pancake breakfast, pocket tacos and a bake sale. Family Day was Sunday and there was also a champagne brunch, and the Lip Sync Battle.

er and Woodworkers W-24 had been at a stalemate for a number of months with both sides refusing to back down. The details of the contract haven’t been made public at this time and neither Woodworkers W-24 nor Weyerhaeuser have returned calls for comment. A union member who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the negotiations went better than anticipated and the vote to approve heavily passed. No further details were available at the time of reporting.

Officer Coma returns from academy ready to serve By Jeff Clemens The Raymond Police Department welcomes back Officer Rikki Coma who recently completed the Washington State Police Academy and has returned to active duty with the police department. Officer Jacob Haas left last month to attend the academy and is expected to return later this year. Officer Coma is a Willapa Harbor native and graduated from South Bend High School. After high school she moved to the Olympia area and remained there for around eight years. She went on to college at South Puget Sound Community College on a fastpitch scholarship while she pursued a medical degree before deciding it wasn’t for her. “I went to school for sports medicine and attended school there about a year and a half,” she said. “Before I was like the only thing keeping me there was fastpitch. I played a year and a half and then was like I just can't. And then my dad made me get a job and my grades started to drop. I worked at Cabela's in Lacey for about five and a half years.” Coma became a reserve officer for Raymond in 2015 and attended the Basic Reserve Academy hosted by the Cosmopolis Police Department. She was hired by the Raymond Police Department as a full-time officer in No-

vember of 2017 and was sent to the state law enforcement academy earlier this year. When asked why she decided to become a police officer she said, “It’s something I wanted to do when I was younger. My uncle was actually a police sergeant here [Raymond]. After high school I kind of pushed it aside and wanted to do something in the medical field and then went to college and that really wasn’t for me. I wanted to be a cop all the way through elementary and high school. So I thought I would go back and see if I could do it.” Coma then reached out to Raymond PD Reserve Offi-

cer Eric Fuller and asked him how he went about becoming a reserve. Fuller then talked to Raymond Police Chief Chuck Spoor about her desire to become a reserve and Chief Spoor then invited her in for an interview and the rest was history. Officer Coma is glad to be apart of the community she grew up in and looks forward to serving the area for many years to come. “Both of my parents were raised here,” she said. “And I have a sibling that still lives here. My family is here and I like the community. It’s a great place to be. This community is more like family to me than anything.”

How to navigate the new roundabout By Jeff Clemens The roundabout at the intersection of US 101 and SR 6 is now in service and seen some very interesting traffic over the Willapa Festival weekend. A number of drivers attempted to navigate through, but found themselves unsure of how it worked. The Herald received nuPhoto by Jeff Clemens Robin Souvenir passes out treats and shakes hands during the Willapa Festival parade on Satur- merous reports of a white truck that had driven up to day. the top of the roundabout by accident and remained there until they figured out how to get out. Other reports have mentioned cars merging into the roundabout instead of yielding while others were stopping for merging traffic holding up the entire roundabout. The roundabout has not been open for a week yet and a number of accidents have also been reported. Although the roundabout looks to be a major chal-

Benefit for Chris Heintz this weekend

lenge, the logic to navigating is quite basic. There are three directions that enter the roundabout: Northbound US 101, Southbound US 101 and Northbound SR6. All cars coming into the roundabout must yield to oncoming traffic. All vehicles in the circle of the roundabout have right away over all merging traffic. Example, if you are driving through the traffic light at Heath St and US 101 heading south and you are entering the roundabout heading to South Bend you must yield to all traffic inside the roundabout. If there is no traffic to your direct left then you can continue without making a full stop. Once you are inside the roundabout you then will turn out of the roundabout at the first right and continue up US 101 up the bridge towards Thriftway. The logic is all traffic

merging into the roundabout yields to anyone to their direct left and all traffic already inside the roundabout has right away. Again, all vehicles merging into the roundabout must yield to traffic already navigating the roundabout to their direct left. The rules for a roundabout are similar to a three-way or four-way intersection. Except, instead of being required to make a full stop at all times. You can simply slow down and yield to traffic. Anyone wishing for a demonstration can visit the City of Raymond Facebook page at and watch a short video of how to navigate the roundabout. Simply click the videos tab and then locate the video. It’s about 35 seconds long and gives a great example of how the roundabout works.

By Jeff Clemens The historic Raymond Theatre welcomed a new manager earlier this month when Diane Zeil stepped in after the departure of former Manager Erik Holland, who decided to not reapply at the end of his contract. Holland instead will focus on obtaining his education degree from Washington Governors University. Finding a niche She moved to the area just over two years ago with her partner Tom Meeker from Portland, OR after wanting to make a change to a different

life style. “We began looking for a property that ticked all the boxes,” Ziel said. “It just so happened that it was in Raymond. It worked out great, we bought the old Hatfield Christmas Tree Farm. Soon as we saw it driving up we were basically like lets sign on the line.” Ziel and her partner both grew up in rural towns and felt like they were back at home when they visited Raymond. But to make sure they were making the right move they decided to look around and make sure See Ziel Page 6

2 Sports New sports rules passed will assist Class 2B schools Wednesday August 8, 2018

By The Herald and Staff Reports The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) Representative Assembly did a lot of good for high school sports when it recently revamped several rules while voting to pass 14 amendments for the 2018-19 academic year. The Herald will take a peek at the some of the new amendments that could have an impact on local Class 2B schools. Sixth graders may now participate in any middle level program except football if the total enrollment of the seventh and eighth grades in a middle school is less than 60 on the first day of the season for that sport. In that case, the sixth grade students of the school may participate in any seventh and eighth grade program except football during that season. Sixth graders may participate with and against seventh and eighth graders in wrestling. This participation does not count against the student's middle level eligibility. The WIAA wanted to make an attempt to provide more opportunities for middle school students by allowing sixth graders to wrestle against seventh and

eighth graders. Research has shown, participation in after-school activities has many positive effects on a student’s academics and social-emotional growth. Since there are weight classes, students of all ages will be wrestling students of similar size. High school students are allowed to wrestle grades nine through 12, which can be a much greater strength/ body development discrepancy. In another change, eighth graders may participate at the high school level based upon the revised parameters, including: High schools with an enrollment equal to or less than one-half of the enrollment in the largest 2B school may allow eighth grade students from a WIAA member feeder middle school/junior high to participate in any high school program for that classification cycle. Note that 104 will be the enrollment cutoff for the 2016-20 classification cycle. Also, with league approval, any 2B school may allow eighth grade students from a WIAA member feeder middle school/junior high to participate in the high school program with the intent to maintain a varsity and a junior varsity program in

contribute to the long term success of the program. Opting for Higher Classification Anow Class 1B or 2B schools may opt up to a higher classification for all sports and activities under WIAA jurisdiction or may petition up or down for football only. There will be two opportunities to opt up. The first opportunity will be prior to the enrollment count. After all the schools desiring to opt up have done so, the member schools will be divided into equal classifications after the numbers are finalized by the WIAA. The second opportunity to opt up will be a two-week period after all the classification numbers have been finalized. A school opting up during this two-week period must have approval from their District Board and the WIAA Executive Board. This rule will only be applied during the years that schools are reclassified using percentages. The aboves rule change would allow schools more flexibility in scheduling football games in which the teams would have comparable abilities. As a result, there could be a heightened interest in watching games involving evenly matched teams. In baseball, there is a new pitcher limitation rule. The pitching limitation rule applies during all regular season and postseason games,

as well as to tied, suspended, discontinued or protested games. The pitching limitation rule is based upon the number of pitches thrown during a calendar day with a maximum of 105 pitches in a calendar day. Below is a graph for coaches to follow: Number of Pitches 76-105 51-75 31-50 1-30

Required Rest 3 calendar days 2 calendar days 1 calendar day

0 days

Most other states allow the pitcher to continue the at-bat with no adverse consequences. This change will allow for continuity in a game. There are new soccer playing rules. Any player that is issued a second yellow card caution in the same match will be disqualified from participating for the remainder of the match and the offending team will not be allowed to substitute for the disqualified player. This will not be counted as an ejection nor reported as an ejection to the WIAA. The player will remain with his/her team in the bench area. As an example, a player, having been cautioned earlier in the game, commits a second cautionable offense. The ruling will stop play, show the yellow card, then show the red card to disqualify the player and do not permit a substitution for the disqualified player.

In high school basketball, now each player may play in 20 contests, but in doing so, may not exceed 80 quarters. Any appearance in a quarter, regardless of the length of time played, shall be considered as one quarter. When a player is beckoned onto the floor and the ball becomes alive, that the player has played in one quarter. Players from all classifications of schools may appear in a maximum of five quarters in one day. Players in Class 1B schools may appear in a maximum of five quarters in one day. Players from all classifications of schools may participate in a maximum 80 quarters during the regular season. And, in high school volleyball, by league adoption sub-varsity contests may be two out of three sets, a guaranteed three sets, or three out of five sets, or a guaranteed five sets. This allows a school with only a junior varsity squad to play another school’s C squad for two sets and also play the JV squad for three sets. The WIAA Representative Assembly is comprised of 53 school administrators from each of the nine WIAA districts, including 35 from the high school level and 18 at the middle school level. For an amendment to pass, 60 percent approval is needed from voting members of the Assembly.

Eighth graders cannot be brought up to establish a C squad if one of the following circumstances exist. 18.20.3 With league approval, any 2B school may allow eighth grade students from a WIAA member feeder middle school/junior high to participate in any high school program if that sport is not offered at the middle level/ junior high. With league approval, any 2B school may allow eighth grade students to participate at the high school level if at any time during the season the number of participants on the high school team is at or below these specified numbers: Baseball (25), Basketball (16), Soccer (25), Softball (25) and Volleyball (17). With the above amendment, schools will be allowed to field teams at the varsity and junior varsity level in team sports other than football. Not being able to field a junior varsity team can be a burden for all teams. This rule change would allow reserve students to play more, have a positive experience, and stay with the sport. Those that are on the bottom end of a varsity team, who rarely get playing time, will likely migrate to another activity where they have a chance to participate. Bringing up eighth graders can provide opportunities for high school athletes to

Letters to the Editor In Response To Williams Letter To the Editor: The Herald published a letter on August 1, 2018, with unsupported and untruthful statements about me. I have at length responded to this letter (along with other letters to the editor) on my webpage (www. and under my Notes on my Facebook page (@Pam Nogueira Maneman). I do not take personal attacks on my character lightly. I always promote the exchange of ideas and an intelligent debate about issues – especially as a candidate

for public office. However, you cannot read the letter written by Ms. Debra Williams and call it an opinion or political debate. That is not what I read in that letter. In that letter I found libelous talk, in the midst of a primary election. This is not only disrespectful to me as a person but to our election system. Messages inspired by such hostility and ignorance can only be an attempt to manipulate others. As to the conclusions Ms. Williams makes in her letter – with absolute no facts or even allegations to support her claims – all I have to say is: these conclusions are incorrect as to who I am, to how I conduct myself and to how I perceive others.

To fully fund the department and make a lasting structural fix, WDFW needs an additional $60 million. Approximately two-thirds of the $60 is planned to be funded from the state's general fund with the remaining one-third to be funded using license fees.

We would like to thank Pioneer Grocery and their Cake Decorator, Teylor Dickey, for saving our daughter's birthday party. After a cake fiasco after ordering one from Wal-Mart and very little time left before the party, we reached out to Pioneer Grocery to make a last minute cake. Teylor made a fantastic cake and it was absolutely beautiful. With the time she had, and the fact we basically said just make something, she went above and beyond, and we are extremely grateful. Thank you! The Clemens Family

there was stuff to do. “We stopped for a bite to eat at the Pitchwood,” Ziel said. “Now you fast forward two years and Tom’s in a band with guys at Pitchwood called Trainwreck and I’m working here.” She continued, “So he found his niche and that was the other point to move up here to find our niche, our passion niche. So we looked to see what we wanted to do as individuals. So I lurked and I went online and joined a bunch of stuff and just kind of watched.” For the last year Meeker has been growing with his band so Ziel decided it was time to find what she would be passionate about. With an interest in classic cars, historical buildings, and theatre her interest grew in being a part of the theatre. “I saw this position open and I have been to a few things here,” she said. “It reminds me so much of the Virginia Theatre in Champagne. So now I’m here.” Optimistic for the theatres future Ziel’s 20 years plus in marketing strategy brings a new set of skills that the Raymond Theatre has yet seen nor drawn in prior. She plans to look at how other theatres have managed to

be success stories such as the 7th Street Theatre in Hoquiam that has been a rocketing success story. “The first thing I would do in any position is audit what we’ve done,” she said. “So I’ve been looking back at what we’ve done and Warren G was huge. The Creedence Clearwater Revival we had this past weekend was absolutely amazing. It was the first we held here after I started.” Looking back at the theatres more successful events like the CCR concert or Warren G and of recent the popular Headbang on the Harbor. Ziel has begun to get an idea of what the local communities like and what will best draw their attentions moving forward. She expressed that even though the theatre can’t afford first run movies it still has the ability to draw large local crowds to events. “There's a real big opportunity to say films are going to happen here,” Ziel said. “What about a cruise in and get American Graffiti. I mean wouldn’t that be fun because there are a lot of classic car collectors around here, myself included. There’s nowhere to go but up here.” Ziel plans to utilize so-

cial media platforms more often to build a bigger presence of what the theatre will be offering. She wants to broaden its exposure with hopes events will get more publicity and allow residents more time to plan and have a better chance to attend the theatres happenings. Theatre Struggles The theatre has been struggling since the city first took ownership and has cost the city tens of thousands of dollars. In 2017, the City of Raymond alloted $10,000 from current expenses to be moved to the theatres fund to account for loses. The theatre ended up losing an additional $8,900 making it a $18,900 loss for the year. According to sources the city has asked Friends of the Theatre to buy the theatre for $1 with stipulations. They would then need to apply for grants to operate the theatre and assist until revenue builds enough to cover expenses. According to the same source there are plenty of grants available that Friends of the Theatre could apply for and would most likely be awarded. However, again according to the source the Friends of the Theatre board has refused and has shown no

interest or desire to do so. Ziel has been looking over the figures for the theatre for the rest of the year and is extremely optimistic it can do better than past years. “The numbers look a lot better on paper,” she said. “Honestly, in my head I figured it would be a whole lot worse. It definitely could be a lot worse.” The only way is up With decades of struggles and a lack of progress the Raymond Theatre now has an extremely not just knowledgeable manager, but a determined one too. Ziel’s passion to restore the theatre to its glory has long been needed for Raymond and brightens the end of the tunnel to making it a long term success story. She has been hard at work doing small projects at the theatre and organizing cleaning parties to clean up the space and make it more presentable to theatre goers. She is already looking to do something “big” in October, but isn’t ready to say exactly what. Ziel has hit the ground running and isn’t looking back and with her at the helm of the ship, the theatre might make it through the storm it's been stuck in for years.
