Mayor Dobosh vetoes; Toledo City County passes police contract By Lynnette Hoffman The Toledo City Council has overwritten the veto of Mayor Steve Dobosh in the recent Interlocal agreement between the City of Toledo and the City of Winlock for temporary police services. On Monday, August 15, 2022, Toledo City Council met to approve the Interlocal agreement. In a 5-0 vote, the council voted to have the Winlock Police Department interlocal agreement approved. The reason for the veto is due to Mayor Dobosh not feeling comfortable with the current costs of the entire police budget. There seems to be a lot of confusion as to the costs and amount of coverage by Winlock, including

response times. Toledo City Council wants their own chief, so they have a position for a new chief, but the costs and coverage are what concerns Mayor Dobosh. The new chief will make a salary per month of $8292, while the previous chief was making $5370. Winlock will cost the City of Toledo approximately $9268 average per month for 80 hours of on call per week. Then it is important to understand there will be separate costs for dispatch, jail, cars, uniforms, evidence, clerks, gas, insurance, etc. This cost is usually around $8400 a month, per the current budget. This total amount is $25,960 per month, which does not include the remaining 38 hours

per week where there is no coverage or overtime by Winlock. This totals to $311,520 per year exceeding the budget by at least $23,000 per year. The City Council has not provided a budget amendment as to how they will cover the extra $23,000 or have the funds to hire an additional officer for the 38 hours of coverage missing. A proposal was given to the City of Toledo by the City of Napavine, where they would have six rotating officers to Winlock’s two rotating officers. Napavine would always have one officer rotating in Toledo, in a Toledo and Napavine Police Department vehicle. The Napavine contract allowed for more time for an officer to be in See toledo Page 3

By Lynnette Hoffman South Lewis County is made up of a few small towns that make it a great area of Lewis County to live in. South County, as a few call it, is home to Winlock, Toledo, Evaline and Vader. Ryderwood is in Cowlitz County but we think of them as part of South County. These small communities are made of people who enjoy country life; it’s a way of life for everyone who lives here. Our small cities are changing, people have learned that we have a beautiful area, reasonable home prices and an area rich in agriculture. Yes, times are changing but the importance of history will never change. Each city has their own history and some are more known than others. Toledo has a history and many have heard of Steamboat Landing but the newer residents may not know that it was steamboats that built the City of Toledo. In 1818 Simon Plomondon, who was a Canadian fur trader, came to the Cowlitz Prairie. In 1851 though, several men came together at the Cowlitz Landing known as the Cowlitz Convention to pressure Congress to separate the area from the Oregon Territory. In 1853, due to the Cowlitz Convention, Washington Territory was formed. In

1861 the first steamship arrived and many continued up the Cowlitz River to the rich agricultural area. Toledo was named after a sternwheeler, named by Mrs. Kellogg. Not only does Toledo have a history of steamboats, it was what brought many settlers to Washington state. Many know about Winlock and the World's Largest Egg, but did you also know about Brinson’s Hollow? Brinson’s Hollow is an area off of Hemingway Rd., known to be around the 100 block. Inside Brinson’s Hollow is a cemetery which was part of the Snow Family. In 1888, Margaret and Joseph Snow left Tennessee and moved to Winlock, build-

ing their home in what is now known as Brinson’s Hollow. The home burned down in the 1950s but the cemetery remains. Several people over the years have claimed that the property is haunted. There are many around Winlock who have experienced unusual happenings at Brinson’s Hollow. It is now owned by a timber company with the graveyard sitting in the middle. In Napavine, early settlers John and Mary Jane MacDonald set up their home in the area of Koontz and Jordan Rd. but it was a plunging love story that brought the two together. Mary Jane with her family left London in 1851. They See history Page 5

WDFW will use drone to gather data for Stillman Creek habitat restoration project in Lewis County OLYMPIA – This summer and fall, scientists with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will use a drone to survey habitat conditions of Stillman Creek, a tributary to the South Fork Chehalis River in Lewis County. Stillman Creek is the last of five river restoration projects sponsored by WDFW as part of the Aquatic Species Restoration Plan, a science-based plan designed to restore, rebuild, and protect the Chehalis River Basin to support a productive ecosystem that is resilient to the impacts of climate change. Weather permitting, drone flights will take place for up to two days between late July and late August. The survey areas will be limited to privately owned lands where landowners have provided signed permissions for access related to the restoration project. Later this fall, there will be additional drone flights depending on weather and construction progress. Data collected from the drone will help WDFW staff compare site conditions of Stillman Creek before and after the habitat restoration project. The Stillman Creek Restoration Project will include installing native trees and shrubs, removing invasive species, constructing engineered log jams to help stabilize stream banks and provide protection for young salmon, and reconnecting floodplain and off-channel habitats to help keep cool water in the creek. Funding for WDFW’s river restoration projects is provided by the Washington State Legislature through the Department of Ecology’s Office of Chehalis Basin. For more information on restoring aquatic species and reducing flood damage in the Chehalis Basin, visit the Chehalis Basin Strategy website. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife works to preserve, protect and perpetuate fish, wildlife and ecosystems while providing sustainable fish and wildlife recreational and commercial opportunities.

Toledo, preventing crime. The issue came to money, Napavine offered these services for $17,000 for 24 hours of coverage 7 days a week. First, the City of Winlock has offered temporary services for $1960 a week for 80 hours of being on call. They will not be sitting in Toledo as Winlock and Toledo are now their area of coverage. It was discussed at the Toledo City Council meeting that the police came quickly to a recent report, but in reality it took a few hours at which time the criminal was gone. The Winlock Police Department actually made an appointment to meet with the caller. Winlock had approximately 80 calls last month, even

though it may not seem like many, reports and investigation is time they have to spend working on Winlock files. The question comes down to, who will offer the best police services for the money and will the citizens feel safe in both communities. This is the first time that Winlock has offered police services to Toledo. While Lonnie Dowell was Mayor of Winlock, Winlock hired Toledo Police Department at which time they had several officers and reserve staff to accommodate the crime in Winlock. Winlock does not have a reserve department, Winlock has two officers working 80 hours per week. If Winlock must come over after the 80

hours, the price to Toledo increases with a minimum charge and overtime. Mayor Dobosh stated, “I do not see how we can sustain this at the current level. With crime increasing in every city in our area, I want our citizens to feel safe while we stay within our approved budget. I have not been given a budget amendment to see how the council will pay for the difference. If we were to contract with Napavine, we could stay within our budget and have 24/7 police coverage in our city.” If Winlock is losing coverage and so is Toledo, will south county remain a safe place to live? Only time will tell.

arrived in San Francisco and on her way off the ship, the plank gave way, plunging Mary Jane into the San Francisco Bay. John MacDonald Jr. rushed into the cold water and saved her, staying with her until help arrived. The Cutting family set sail for the Oregon Territory in 1852 and John and Mary Jane were already engaged. In 1853 John arrived and they were married later that year. Over the years, many travelers enjoyed MacDonald station, enjoying Mary Jane’s breakfasts. A plunge that brought many years of history to settlers in what was the Oregon Territory. Vader has a rich history in logging and a railroad running right through it, but did you know it had a couple of names before it became Vader. Vader started out as Little Falls, where there were saloons, restaurants, hotels and a population of a few thousand. It was actually the railroad who at first changed the name, from Little Falls to Sopenah. The reason they changed it was because there was already a Little Falls in Minnesota. The townsfolk did not like the new name so they decided to change it to Vader. Mr. Vader, who was a German immigrant and Civil War Veteran, agreed to the name change. In 1913, the town officially became known as Vader. In 2015 residents voted on changing the name back to Little Falls, it was a 3-2 margin vote and Vader was retained. Evaline has a little history of misspellings. Sedate W. Porter founded the town of Evaline and established a post office in 1906. The Northern Pacific Railroad started an operation from Kalama to Evaline which was a 25 mile stretch in 1872. The town was named after Porter’s wife Evaline. For years though, the railroad used an incorrect spelling and called it Eveline. They used the incorrect spelling for sometime, eventually changing it. Thankfully, a new school was erected in 1883 where students still attend today. No doubt the students could teach the railroad a little something about spelling the name of their little town! Ryderwood is the first planned development in the area, even though they didn’t call them planned developments in 1923. Ryderwood was built for loggers to live in, this is the day when the logging camps had homes, families, schools and everything else that many cities had. Many babies were born in Ryderwood, it was a family town. They had anticipated that the logging operations would go on for 100 years, but due to technology it only lasted 30 years. In 1953, Ryderwood went from a logging town to a retirement community which it is still to this day. Every small community we have in South County has a story, many families have been in the area over 100 years, contributing to the history for many years. South County is the most beautiful part of Lewis County, rich in agriculture and rich in history.
