Drug overdose in Centralia leads to Winlock Lewis County honors Veterans Day

Photo by Lynnette Hoffman Location of one of the drug busts in Winlock.

By Lynnette Hoffman On Wednesday, November 2 at 8:40 a.m., the Centralia Police Department was dispatched to a residence in the 300 block of S. Pearl St. for a reported 26year-old found unconscious and not breathing by his roommate. The male was declared deceased by the medics present, there were signs it was a drug overdose. They started a Controlled Homicide Investigation that was immediately initiated by Centralia PD Detectives. Due to the suspicion of fentanyl, assistance from the Joint Narcotics Enforcement Team (JNET) was requested. This drug overdose in Centralia led JNET to two addresses in Winlock where they arrested three individu-

als for the Possession of a Controlled Substance with the Intent to Deliver and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. Both of these homes have allegedly been involved in drug activity for quite some time. During the investigation, Timothy May of Centralia was arrested for his involvement in the death investigation. May was booked for Controlled Substance Homicide (suspected Fentanyl). Through their investigation, detectives learned that May had recently traded a high capacity semi automatic rifle to drug dealers for the illegal drugs. This is where the investigation led to Winlock. Further evidence in the investigation led CPD Detectives and JNET to an address out of Winlock in the 700

block of the Winlock Vader Rd. At this location, 30 year old Brandy Hunter of Winlock and 34 year old Bill Jones of Winlock were arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance (Fentanyl) with the Intent to Deliver. This home had been reported to Sheriff Snaza by phone and later in a text message in the summer of 2021 with no results. Several homes were referred to Sheriff Snaza during the summer, yet no arrests were made by the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office. CPD Detectives and JNET continued to follow developing leads which led them to another address out of Winlock, in the 900 block of Byham Rd. The subject living there was connected to the drugs traded to Timothy May. May’s firearm was found at the location and 55 year old Jackie Dean was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance (Fentanyl) with the Intent to Deliver and for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. This investigation resulted in five firearms being seized and more than 100 suspect Fentanyl pills recovered. This is an ongoing investigation, anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Centralia Police Department at 360330-7680.

By Lynnette Hoffman Veterans Day is this Friday, November 11. There are several different programs throughout the week put on by our local Veterans of Foreign Wars out of Winlock. Veterans Day is a tribute to military veterans who have served in the US Arms Forces, those still alive and those killed in our country’s wars. This observance originated in 1919 on the first anniversary of the 1918 armistice that ended World War 1 and was known at that time as Armistice Day. It was commemorated in 1921 with the burial of an unknown soldier from World War I at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington Virginia. Arlington Cemetery is a cemetery like none other. It is the former home of Robert E. Lee and Mary Custis. During the Civil War, Mary Custis paid her taxes by proxy which was not allowed. The government then seized their home and turned it into a cemetery on June 15, 1864. It has been a national cemetery since that date. Some notable figures are buried at Arlington; Audie Murphy, Thurgood Mar-

shall, John and Jackie Kennedy and many more. The Tomb of the Unknown Changing of the Guard will bring you to tears, it is an experience that is recommended to all who visit Washington DC. You will never forget this experience. Here are the local events. All local veterans are invited and encouraged to attend any and all of these programs. Please note: There are some time/date changes from earlier disseminated information. Wednesday, November 9: Winlock Elementary Little Cards Gym at 9:00 a.m. and a second program at 9:45 a.m. Thursday, November 10: Winlock High/ Middle School at 8:30 am; All Toledo schools at Toledo High School gym at 9:30 a.m. Friday, November 11: "Veterans Day At The Wall", Kemp Olson Park in Toledo at 11:00 a.m. Open to the public.

We Say We Love So We Do

There is a subject that’s not well understood and one that is not sufficiently practiced in faith-based circles. What is being spoken of here is the kingdom Jesus came to represent of His Father’s love which is in heaven. There are some verses in Matthew 16:21-23 that reveals this truth, revealing to those that read that all love is not created equal. The disciples that were steadfast in following Jesus did not understand this truth until after Christ was resurrected. Comprehension on this subject required much patience as witnessed in God’s only Son, and for this reason He brought His Father’s love to this world. “From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto His disciples, how that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.” “Then [after listening to Jesus in what He was saying] Peter took Him, and began to rebuke Him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.” This action on Peters part needs no explanation, for each of us would have done the same, for Peter loved His Lord. But prior to this Jesus asked this question addressing His disciples, “but whom say ye I am”? (v.15) Peter put it out there while speaking for the rest of them saying, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (v.16). For this testimony, one that thrilled the heart of Christ, Jesus in verse 17 begins to call Peter blessed. “For flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father which is in heaven.” This love Peter and the rest of his fellows had for Jesus was commendable, Jesus praised each for their acceptance of what their Father in heaven had revealed to them. Following this, each heart was basking in the praises that had just come from the lips that was to them all together lovely. Then Jesus began to open up to them the realities of His suffering and death, followed by His resurrection on the third day. Each disciple had a tremendous love for their Master, but that love was carnal. A carnal love along with its fallen nature is easily misdirected, something the ministry of Jesus and His mission knew nothing of. Because of sin, this world has a perverted view of what love was meant

to represent. Jesus came to this world to represent true love fashioned after the character of His Father in heaven. If there was no death in this One that came to represent true love, then it would not have been genuine. Peters’ actions in verse 22 in saying, “be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee”, were words that Satan inspired in his heart, for his love for Jesus was great. Peter was wanting to suggest to Jesus that He need not go to Jerusalem where they were wanting to take His life. This love Jesus took to the cross was specific. Because of sin and its form of love, Jesus came to uplift His Father’s love, which characteristically is vital in that it now preserves fallen nature. Natures seed has all appearances to have died, its hardened characteristics leaves one to understand that all life has left this one-time vibrant plant while producing seeds after its kind. If those seeds are placed in the earth, the same loving power that raised Jesus from the tomb will bring about new life, producing a plant in the likeness to that which was buried. Peters’ love that was praised by Jesus in one setting and not in the next reveals this controversy surrounding what manner of love. In the beginning a loving God created, what He created did not die till sin entered this world, so upon this earth Jesus came to implant His Father’s manner of love. Now in this fallen kingdom, because of sin, love can only be truly genuine after the one professing it has died to fallen man’s misdirected love. Here Jesus came to show us the way, leaving His followers an example of Whom true love reflects. Our Father in heaven is working for the salvation of this world, He is working with what was delt Him after the choice was made at the tree of knowledge of good and evil. What happens in the seed pod is a mystery that calls forth new life. Each one of us professes to love, but is it a true representation of the example of Jesus, or a manner of love the world puts out there till death deals its final card? This is the great controversy being played out on this earth, the controversy is real, the fruit testifying what manner of love is real. Fruit is what plants the seed, be it good or bad, spreading what manner of love.
