Next weekend is Egg Day and we would love to see as many of our neighbors from Toledo as possible. It’s the same thing when Toledo Cheese Days come, nothing more fun than talking with our neighbors in the next town over. The Egg Day Parade starts at 11:00 a.m. and we hope to see you there. The 10th Annual Arts of the Mountain Show is coming up. The show is on Saturday June 25 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The show will take place at the Historic Silver Lake Grange located at 3104 Spirit Lake Highway in Castle Rock. While there, you will see beautiful views of the lake. Ryderwood is having their 4th of July celebration. Susan Kearney is on Facebook and she is looking for vendors. Reach out to Susan to be a part of this fun filled event! Took a friend to Donna’s Place this week for lunch and she enjoyed the burgers. Toledo has good burgers, you can get them at Betty’s Place too. Nothing like a burger a day to get you started. There was a bio-sludge meeting on June 5, several residents were in attendance at Toledo High School. The elected officials who were there were Jeff Wilson from the 19th District (where Imboden Road is), Senator John Braun, and Lee Grove Lewis County Commissioner See Winlock Page 4 district 3. Richard, who has done a lot of research on the issues with biosludge, was there to give information to the crowd. Cheese Days is just a few weeks away, I hope everyone is getting ready for the event. Jim Wallace, will Bigfoot be brought up from California again? Cheese Days would be all wrong without a bigfoot!

It's looking like Egg Day weekend will be nice, cool in the 60s but as of right now there is no rain. But then again, it’s the Pacific Northwest so the weather is unpredictable here. As of right now, let’s just keep the rain away. Winlock egg salad sandwiches will be handed out across the tracks from the World's Largest Egg. These sandwiches have been a trademark of the day. They have always been delicious so I look forward to eating one of the best egg salad sandwiches ever. The Pinewood Egg Day Derby is new this year. It will be in the lot located next to the Firehouse Restaurant at 411 NE 1st Street. This is going to be a fun new adventure. The Winlock Miller Elementary is the location for all the vendors. Last year they had food, gifts and informational literature. This year, we are all excited to see what there will be. Another reminder, at Roy’s Place they pass out free ice cream cones. They passed a lot last year, it will be interesting to see how many enjoy their free ice cream this time. Lewis County Fire District located at 606 NW Kerron St. will have an open house and safety information. Richard Underdahl is the new chief and he is wonderful. Take a minute to go down and introduce yourself to the chief, you will be glad you did.

The Vader City Council Meeting is on the 23rd this month. Meetings start at 6:00 p.m. sharp and are online via gotomeeting app or in person. If you're looking to see what's happening around town, meetings are the best place to get information. Hope to see you all at the next one. Werden Park continues to draw the masses. So with all due respect, I need to give another shout out to the Vader Park Board. The park looks amazing, and the kids and young at heart are loving it. On another park related topic, all minors are required to have adult supervision when at the park. It seems there is a group of older children that likes to bully others causing a ruckus. The City is looking into solutions

for the problem, but until one is found parents should be aware. McMurphy Park will be closed on June 25 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for a private party. There will be a wedding at the park so please be respectful. Congratulations to the couple. Have you been on the city web page lately? If you have not you should check it out. The webpage has been updated and even has a nice section full of pictures of Vader’s past. Do you have something that needs to be featured in the Vader News? Shoot Lynette or I an email. As always good content is often sparse during slow times of the year so I am always looking.

Letters to the Editor

Why I am not voting for Joe Kent To the Editor, I am a Conservative Christian Republican and have been so for my entire political life. In the past I have supported Jamie, but sadly she seems to have drunk from the D.C. well too much. It’s time for a change in representation in the 3rd. So whom shall we pick to replace her? Joe, from the outside, has it going for him that he served our country in the military, something I respect. But his poli-

child tax credit to 10K per kid…last I checked; the government is broke. We are living on credit cards. So, lots of big government ideas I strongly disagree with as a conservative. But the straw that breaks the camel's back is… As a conservative I loathe the fact that conservative speakers can’t speak on college campuses without being shouted down by the Antifa leftist woke mob. Conservatives generally like to talk, debate ideas, interact, but the left finds it more expedient to beat your ideas down rather than interacting with them. Thus, when ‘republicans’

cies seem to lean in the ‘big government’ direction, such as “Government taking over Big tech and making them Public utilities”- that seems to be akin to Biden’s new ‘Ministry of Truth”. Joe has also suggested that the federal government should limit the quantity of property a citizen should be able to own. The federal government should also not allow companies to sell their products domestically if they are made outside the country (just a note… every single thing you buy is either made or made with components from outside the country). The Fed should also boost the

Texas Schoolhouse Massacre

As details become available of the atrocities perpetrated on 5/24/22 toward the most vulnerable among us, our hearts cry out its emotions in what is heard and even more that’s unheard and can never be told. This is not the first of these where society is confronted with the truth as it relates to the human mind, all while taking the lives of others as the preparator looks on while the bodies that make up the dead and dying spill precious blood out on the classroom floor. The truth is, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: (and then these inspired words are added) who can know it”? (Jeremiah 17:9) This verse that speaks of what the human heart is capable of as it contemplates with premeditated planning this level of carnage is not talking about the hearts of innocent little children. This kind of wickedness takes years to develop and gets systematically demented over time. All sympathies that were experienced in early childhood development were banished from the mind, allowing it to focus sadistically on this one goal. Letting go of right principles learned as a little child prepared the heart for this destruction. Children learn from a very young age that being deceitful or lying is not okay, but it’s what they do, this is their time to experience some consequences before the age of accountability. Sympathy keeps the heart tender; this is seen in our association with the animal kingdom. All this is as it should be, our Father in heaven is using creation to strum the heart strings of life that love for others might be awakened nurtured and maintained. Love for what God creates in animals and our pets that grace our life allows us to experience childhood while life experiences its last, even to the end of aging. Jesus speaks to this, “And said, verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3,4). The level of wickedness developed beyond childhood is something this nation is having to address; the Bible speaks of this wickedness in as truthful way as

possible, its pages tell the history of its origin in creation along with those created to populate a world filled with recorded atrocities from its earliest beginning. This truth is hard to accept entirely, humbling this desperately wicked heart is not in our fallen nature, so out of extreme love our Creator places in our path things of nature that speak to sensitive hearts, giving us a childlike love as we continue to learn of His selfsacrificing love. This self-sacrificing love He desires us to experience when new life is brought into this world, be it of the animal kingdom or one birthed after our own likeness. Humanity has been created in the likeness of our Father in heaven, the Father and the Son set no barriers but allowed absolute freedom to those He created. Turns out, this freedom brought untold sorrow to the heart of God. Jesus, the Son of God came to this earth representing selfless love, to pay for humanities miss guided love found in man’s sin sick desires. What took place in Uvalde is an example of what this world is dealing with because of that choice. Sorrow and pain of heart is what is experienced because freedoms were taken advantage of, restraint was not prized, sympathies were not cherished. With freedom comes restraint or there will be sorrow. Jesus came to this earth to address the sorrow that envelopes this world, it’s expressed to His disciples in these words as He enters the garden of Gethsemane. He said, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch. And He went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him. And He said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from Me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt” (Mark 14:34-36). Jesus was paying the price for our demented freedom, a freedom that ends in death, the real final fronter in this life where the choices made during this probationary time are irreversible. As we go through life, there are many things we get to experience similar to that of our Creator, of them is our ability to create as we bring new life into this world, another, He allows us to experience life’s sorrows as the heart can only weep in times like these.

employ the same tactics…it puts a very bad taste in the mouth. Recently, in a church event where Heidi was speaking, some of Joe’s campaign people in a Q&A period got up and made accusations then proceeded to scream “Liar, Lair!” and then ran around the room with a phone videoing. Needless to say, it was exceeding disruptive and disenfranchised others who were there to listen and ask real questions. Maybe that was the objective? But the impression left in everyone’s mind was “What a bunch of Jerks.” If anyone was riding the fence on whom to support, I think his campaign people did him no help. This apparently is a common occurrence at events where Heidi is speaking. There are one of two options. Either, people in his campaign are acting in rogue fashion and engaging in a campaign of disruption in Antifa-like-style…and he is unaware of it. Then the question is, “How is this escaping your notice?” Or, which is most likely, these nasty tactics are directly in accordance with his knowledge. Regardless, I want a conservative to represent me in the 3rd but the hecklingdisruption-disrespect flavor of Joe’s campaign has guaranteed that not only will I not vote for him in the primary (I’ll be supporting Heidi) but if by chance he wins the primary…I will not be voting for him in the general, and will suggest others do the same.
