Back the Blue moving forward
Sheriff Snaza and Gracie Miles join the Back the Blue Rally.
By Lynnette Hoffman Back the Blue is an American activism campaign focused on building community support for our local police officers. The idea is to support your local first responders, not to defund them but to defend them. There is such a movement starting right here in Lewis County. Just two weeks ago, a handful of people stood on the corner near Walmart and waived Back the Blue flags. This week, there were approximately 45 individuals present and the movement is growing every day. This event will be held every two weeks, as long as the organizers continue, it takes place next on September 12 at 11:00 a.m. The event brought out local citizens and public servants. The person who is organizing the event, has asked to remain anonymous, she stated, “Our group shows
support and appreciation for law enforcement and first responders. We want them to know how much the community truly cares for the tough jobs they are doing.” Sheriff Rob Snaza and his wife Jenny stopped by to visit with his supporters, he stated, “It was incredibly awesome and humbling to see so many people out supporting law enforcement. We are truly blessed to live in such a great community.” Candidate Lindsey Remund Pollock, who had attended the rally, stated, “In these difficult times, all good people can use a little extra encouragement. Please give our law enforcement officers a smile and wave, and when things get back to normal, consider going on a ridealong. We’ve got a lot of great people keeping us safe here in Lewis County!” Barbara Swenson, a local
resident stated, “I am doing this because I love this country. My Father was in World War II and I am going to fight for what he and I both believe in, it’s all about the American flag. It’s about the flag and freedom.” “I am here because I support the officers,” said Gracie Miles, Age 11 from Adna. “The sheriff came to our house at Christmas, brought us presents and just chilled with us. If they get defunded, who are we going to call. I am here to make sure they don’t get defunded.” She was there with her family, her mom, sister, brother and friend, who wanted to show support. Commissioner Edna Fund also attended the rally, she said, “Back the Blue 2 was even bigger than the inaugural flag waving event two weeks ago. Debbie, coordinator for Lewis County, is doing a great job of energizing our residents to honor the Blue. It was amazing to see the number of people honking their horns or giving high 5’s as they passed the sign wavers.” Fund is correct, it is a group that is gaining momentum. What is Back the Blue? Police Officers put themselves in harm’s way everyday to protect and serve citizens of our community. The goal of Back the Blue is to show law enforcement that citizens appreciate their efforts, and to bring law enforcement and the communities they serve together. Serving the community in these times must be extremely difficult for some officers, they have been cursed at, spit on and objects thrown at them. It is time, we say “thank you” for all they do. Without our law enforcement, where would we be? Let's hope we never have to find out!
Toledo Fire Department training volunteers
Become a volunteer firefighter today The Lewis County Fire Departments in South Lewis County are looking for volunteers to help with their responsibilities. The responsibility of a volunteer firefighter is many, but the comradery with the other members will far outweigh the hard work. The local fire departments start with the application process, they have an entire packet if you are interested. They start with attending a volunteer training session. Each volunteer fire department does their own training. From there, there is an application and an interview process with the committee. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, go to one of the training sessions, it’s an experience
we all should see. Then you will have to take a health screening to make sure you have the physical abilities to do the job. It is an occupational health test which is not as strict as the armed services physical training tests. After a person has passed all the tests and their application is approved, it is submitted to the board for final approval. In Toledo, once you are a volunteer firefighter, you are required to respond to 5% of the calls and 18 different training sessions. Training will consist of Emergency Medical Services, CPR, general basic emergency See volunteer Page 2
It’s that makes us better. AGAIN,

Fall is in the air, my leaves are starting to fall on my huge silver maple tree. It’s coming sooner than we had thought, I think. The nights have been chilly, which has been a nice change. There is excitement in Winlock on Saturdays with the Winlock Saturday Market. It is so much fun to see the vendors and people downtown, buying their goods. The town is hopping. There are people out enjoying the weather and shopping, what could be better than that. They are also open on Wednesdays now. Let’s keep bringing a little bit of sunshine to our downtown core. Winlock is at a turning point, we can all see it. We are growing and how we handle that growth will be very important. It is exciting to see so many new homes and businesses coming to town. We had the groundbreaking for Mickelsen Parkway, Grand Prairie Phase 1 and 2 are almost built out. Mayor Svenson was able to resurrect the S.E. First street paving, and we have a new church coming to town. We have potential for more growth with the Benaroya Industrial Park, hopefully a new tenant will be announced within the next 30 days. We are growing, but it will be important to keep our small town culture. September 26, 2020, the Centralia Car Cruises will be coming to Winlock. Look for more information as time goes on. Roots Daycare had their opening on Saturday, it was so nice to meet the Clarks and the Roots who live in Winlock. They are wonderful people who only want what is best for our community, if you haven’t met them, please do. Winlock City Council meetings are the 2nd and 4th Monday’s at 6:00 p.m. They changed their time a few weeks ago so people could attend and arrive home at a decent time. This new council is young and they are doing what is right for the citizens of Winlock. My hat’s off to those who are helping Winlock become the community many of us remember. "The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all." ~ G.K. Chesterton ~

We are heading into fall and the weather is slowly cooling down at night. It’s a nice change of pace for all of us. We are Pacific Northwest residents, we only like it soooo warm and then we melt. If your student is in school, don’t forget to get on board with ordering meals from the school district. It’s available online. Don’t forget to support your local businesses, during COVID they have all seen a decrease in business. Please support them to keep them going. Senior Meals are still available for delivery, please call 1-855-581-9495 to arrange for your meals. Update from Vision:Toledo Old City Jail: The historic jail site is in the middle of a radical transformation. The jail site is quickly transforming into one of the most amazing examples of different groups of people in Toledo joining together to beautify our town. With the help of city employees led by Mike Fisher (and assisted with the City of Toledo’s backhoe), there are now five terraces surrounding the jail that will be separated by retaining walls and connected by a woodchip footpath. Common Ground is very thankful for the ideas and contributions that Mike Fisher has brought to the table thus far. With his and the other city employees' help, our efforts to beautify this town will be greatly increased. Financial donors for this project have been essential in funding each phase of this project thus far, and again it is a perfect example of different forces (municipality, business owners, Common Ground volunteers, citizens of Toledo) all joining together in the ways that they can to beautify the town. Since this is our most ambitious project to date, and because each phase of this project will require additional funding, expect more requests for donations as the jail site progresses forward. Donations for the jail site can be given directly to city hall, vision:Toledo, or Brian Dennis. Read this week's Ryderwood and Vader News columns on the Lewis County News Facebook page.

medical training, fire training will include basic firefighting skills including extraction in wildland fires. Mike Dorothy, Fire Chief for Toledo stated, “If you are considering whether or not volunteering is an option for you, ask yourself these questions. Do I love my community? Do I wish that I could make a difference by helping others in their time of need? Do I enjoy spending my time learning new things? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a desire to be a volunteer. Our local Fire department needs volunteers. Please call or contact your local department today and inquire about being a volunteer. Randy Pennington, who is a Winlock FIre Department Commissioner stated, “Winlock, Toledo and Napavine fire departments, over the last few years, have become what are known as Combination Departments. What that means is they have transformed from an all volunteer agency into an agency that has both volunteer and paid staff. This has tremendous benefits but there is also a down side. The down side is the volunteer staff often lose members because volunteers feel they are not needed any more. The paid staff immediately responds on calls so by the time the volunteer gets there, the ambulance/fire engine have already left and most likely already made patient contact or put the fire out so the volunteer feels a sense of not

contributing. This is common throughout the fire service and for a variety of other reasons our ranks our thinning out, for example here in winlock 40 years ago, almost every single volunteer worked here in WInlock, and could respond from work, people left the stores, the schools, their shops etc, now very few volunteers work in the area at all, again they feel not needed as they cant go on the majority of calls.” Randy continued, “Although this feeling among the volunteers of not being needed, becomes prevalent and does diminish our ranks, it is far from the truth. We are desperate for volunteers. Trying to think of a quote that could summarize the importance the volunteers are to the overall operations in EMS and Fire I thought of this illustration. Imagine the fire/ems service is a circulatory system of a person, made up of heart, blood and blood vessels of a patient.” This is what Randy stated about being a volunteer firefighter: The patient is the person who needs our help. Blood vessels are the conduit that brings the blood. Blood is the life giving component that the patient needs to survive The heart is the pump that moves the blood along. Without any of the components the patient suffers and ultimately will die. I think of our combination department in this way: Blood vessels is the department Blood is the responding crew Heart is the volunteer crew that moves the blood along. With a weak pump the blood is slowly delivered or not delivered at all, hence the heart is a key part of the system, just like the volunteers are a key part to our system. Without them the system is pumping slow and weak or not at all, we need the heart of the system, that heart is our volunteers. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please reach out to your local fire departments today.

New Roots Daycare open in Winlock
Ribbon cutting for the Winlock Roots Daycare
By Lynnette Hoffman Winlock Roots Daycare had their ribbon cutting event at their new location in Winlock at 476 State Route 505. They are not new to the daycare business, but they are a new daycare in the local area. . Ben and April Root were joined by their Rochester Roots Daycare team on the day they opened their
Winlock Daycare. April and Ben moved to Winlock in 2018. April stated, “We heard the need in our new community for high quality childcare so we started looking for a building. We purchased this building in November of 2019. We initially planned to open in February 2020 but then COVID put a halt on moving forward.” After many months of
hard work, they are finally able to open. April continued, “We worked tirelessly on this building with some help from family and friends. The time has finally come after three different Fire Marshal inspections, two Labor and Industry inspections, two city building inspections, and two Department of Early Learning inspections. We are licensed and ready to serve!” You can tell they have a love for the daycare business. “If you're in need of high quality childcare, look no further than Roots,” said April. “At Winlock Roots Daycare your child will learn, grow, be loved, and have endless joyous experiences with certified trained teachers who have a passion for educating little minds. Our philosophy is based on hands-on learning and
exploration and meeting the individualized needs of each child exactly as they are.” When asked about their programs at Roots, April continued, “We use creative curriculum and Teaching Strategies Gold to make sure your child is ready for kindergarten including being self sufficient, how to advocate for themselves, and social emotional development.” Mayor Brandon Svenson who was at the ribbon cutting stated, “Roots daycare is now providing a much needed service in
