Toledo High School seniors’ last first day of school By Merrilee Bark Schools have started up again, and seniors are experiencing their last first day of school. Many are conflicted about their feelings on leaving the high school this year. I talked to a few seniors at Toledo High School to get their opinion on their last first day, and how they feel about graduating. Andrea Jones’ first day went well, especially when she had free pizza for the seniors. "I’m sad to graduate, but also excited to start the next part of my life," she said.
"My last first day was surreal," claimed Michael Echtle. "It felt like another day at THS, but the entire time I had this looming feeling that this is my last year at the school I've loved so much." Michael feels a bit scared of graduation. "I don't feel like it should be over but at the same time I'm excited about what will come after." Levi Lerma felt refreshed to see his teachers and peers, and he feels confident about the upcoming year including graduation. "My last first day of school was pretty boring
and normal, as you would expect. Graduation day can't come soon enough," commented Dylan Thompson. Josiah Smith's day went great. "I got to see friends again, and I'm on track to graduate," he said. As for graduating he said, "I can't wait, because I'm tired of waking up early." "My last first day went really good," claimed Alexis Ball. "I was really excited to finally start my senior year at THS. I started my school day by announcing new upcoming activities for See Toledo Page 6
Rylee Birdwell has undergone more than most young adults will ever have to endure. On July 25, 2019, Rylee’s life changed forever when she had a seizure that led to emergency brain surgery. Rylee Birdwell is a recent graduate of Toledo High School. On July 25, at approximately 11:00 a.m., Rylee had a seizure at a local restaurant. Emergency services were called and she was rushed to Centralia General Hospital. The hospital took a CT scan and the family was informed she had a tumor the size of a golf ball. They immediately sent Rylee to SW Regional Medical Hospital in Vancouver, Washington. Rylee was in ICU for two days. Friday night they informed Rylee and her family she would need extensive brain surgery on Monday, July 29. During the weekend, Rylee was moved to a suite where her family and friends could spend time with her. On July 29 at 12:30 pm, Rylee was in surgery for 7 hours. The Doctors were able to remove most of the tumor, but there is still a small portion left. During the surgery, the surgeon cracked the skull causing brain swelling and pain. After the surgery, Rylee was in ICU for 12 days. She was then moved to inpatient rehabilitation at the hospital. She was in

rehab for approximately 12 days, and in the hospital for almost a month. A long time for a young lady. Rylee was discharged and finally able to come home. Rylee has some lingering blindness in her right eye. She is still using a walker and will continue to endure physical therapy. Donna’s Place is hav-
ing a fundraiser for Rylee on October 5, 2019. She is currently collecting items for a silent auction. Lorinne Birdwell stated, “I am hoping we can raise some money for Rylee to ease up on some of the medical expenses. Rylee will continue to have brain scans and physical therapy See rylee Page 4

Citizen update: Some of you might remember that Connar Young was in a near fatal accident while driving S. Military on his motorcycle a few months back. This has been a long road, so far. Sadly, I got word from his brother that he might be losing his arm in the near future. This is an extremely rough time for his family and they are asking for your prayers as they continue to struggle with the aftermath of the accident. For info on helping Connar please contact Caleb Young via Facebook. That brings me to another topic. Bikes on the detour roads. Our weather might be turning rough, but there is still heavy motorcycle traffic. Drive safe. Check your blind spots. You might just save a bikers life. I missed the meeting. I was stuck at home unable to walk after getting stung multiple times. I heard it was a great productive meeting. I'll update you all once the recording is posted. See vader Page 3

Tips For Teens: Wisdom Teeth Removal By Melanie Langley Teens and young adults often get their wisdom teeth removed around ages 1725. Mine were removed a couple of weeks ago at age 16. I had never been to a dentist appointment before going in to get my wisdom teeth checked and setting a date for the extraction. I was more than a little nervous about the whole thing. I figured that I’d compile every piece of advice I could in hopes that it helps someone else who is anxious about their wisdom teeth removal. Before you set a date
for the procedure be sure you’ve found a dentist or oral surgeon you trust. Now that seems like what most people do, but people will trade convenience for safety and set an appointment with someone who can get them in earlier rather than wait and have it done by a professional they trust. Never skip asking questions if you’re worried or curious about a specific step or the procedure as a whole. Double check that you know what kind of anesthetic the dentist will use. Follow the instructions given to you the day of the procedure. Depending
on your anesthetic the instructions could vary. I had local anesthesia and nitrous oxide (known as “laughing gas”) and I treated it as a normal dentist appointment and brushed my teeth before going. Bring someone with you just in case you don’t feel aware enough to drive afterward, or simply for comfort and support during the surgery. It’s okay to be anxious about this. It’s even okay to have a panic attack. The professional performing the surgery will be understanding and help you the best they can. After the procedure follow the instructions given
to you for the next few days. If you get stitches that don’t dissolve you’ll go in a week after the surgery to get them removed. I got nervous about the stitches too, but it was over in a minute and I didn’t feel a thing. Eat soft foods for a while, you can probably find recommendations online or get them from your dentist. Also, take any prescriptions given to you as instructed. You’ll probably be in mild discomfort or pain for a few days but it will subside. Here I am two weeks later, I survived and I feel back to normal, so you’ll be just fine!

Napavine fall sports begin
By Melanie Langley Fall sports in Napavine are off to a fantastic start! Sports have always been important to our community, and we have very talented athletes at our high school. This week I went around and interviewed players from our football, soccer, and volleyball teams. I asked them about their own outlook on the season ahead of them, as well as a few goals they wanted to achieve. Starting with football, I interviewed two juniors on the team: Laythan Demerest and Cade Evander. They both say that the team is performing very well during practices, though there are still errors they want to overcome. “I’m proud of how we performed as a team,” Cade remarked when asked about the first game of the season against Liberty. Laythan hopes the team continues to improve and that they prove people wrong by advancing to the championship. The Napavine Tigers won their first game of the season against Liberty 39-12.
