First day back in Napavine By Melanie Langley Napavine had a busy first day back! There were many things to be done in order to prepare for this next school year. Among those tasks, students needed to acquaint themselves with their new schedules and possibly a teacher they’ve never had before. Coming back to school felt a little bizarre to tell you the truth. I felt like my summer went by very quickly and it’s surreal that I’m a junior in high school

now. It feels like very little time has passed since I was a freshman just learning the ropes. Because of this feeling I’ve been trying my best to be as helpful and friendly as I can to the new batch of freshmen. And any upperclassmen at Napavine or other schools, should do the same! You remember what it was like to be that scared freshman, right? On the topic of welcoming others, the ASB put together a wonderful assembly to welcome See napavine Page 8

Toledo shindig fundraiser event sure to be a hit By Kirsten Stalnaker This week there will be a fundraiser event sponsored by the Windermere Foundation hosted by Paula Burrows of Windermere Centralia, Bonanza BBQ & Catering, and Farmers Insurance Toledo. All proceeds raised will benefit the Toledo School District children with basic needs. It’s called the “Down Home, a Toledo WA Shindig” and everyone is invited to attend. The event sounds like it will be a lively one with music performed by Tony Branco and Gubmint Cheese.

There will also be a live, silent, and dessert auction, and of course a delicious “all you can eat” BBQ meal catered by the folks at Bonanza BBQ. Salads and fruit are by the Crowded Kitchen. As you can see, it is an event that the businesses in Toledo are supporting. The shindig takes place on Saturday, September 14 with the festivities starting at 4:00 p.m. and ending some time late in the evening. Tickets are available for an all you can eat BBQ. You can get them at Farmers Insurance See shindig Page 7

Public Record Requests still a problem at Winlock City Hall By Lynnette Hoffman The City of Winlock is continuing to have issues with public records requests as of September 4, 2019. In February of 2019, Lewis County Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer had instructed the City of Winlock to procure training for public records requests. However, it appears that training failed. On September 4, 2019 the Lewis County News sent a public records request to the City of Winlock asking for the maintenance records for a former police vehicle used by Toledo Police Department. The response from the City Clerk was astonishing. It reads “Toledo did not provide Winlock with any maintenance records. They were supposed to work through August 15 and pulled the plug on July 1 with no pertinent records released to Winlock. You will have to file a request with the City of Toledo for such records, if any exist.” The maintenance records do exist and the City of Toledo has sent them to the City of Winlock not once, but twice. In an attempt to shine a negative light on the City of Toledo, the Winlock City Clerk committed a crime by concealing public records. Not only do the records

exist, they were sent to the City of Winlock on March 20, 2018 and June 11, 2018. They were also sent to each City Council member. City Councilwoman Anne Randt stated, “I have a copy of the documents sent by the City of Toledo dated March 20, 2018.” Not only did the City of Winlock receive the documents, the city also gave each city council member their envelope with the maintenance agreement included. Per Michelle Whitten, City Clerk for the City of Toledo, in an email regarding the maintenance records, she wrote “City of Toledo sent this information to the City of Winlock on March 20, 2018 (Attachment A) in a response to Winlock’s letter dated February 27, 2018. The response from Toledo went to Attorney Samuel Satterfield and cop-

ies to Mayor Bradshaw, Councilor’s Korpi, Curtis, Pedersen, Sneed, and Councilor Randt. Winlock also received this information included in the mediation packet provided by the City of Toledo Attorney Jim Buzzard on June 11 ,2018. In his crusade to terminate the the inter-local police agreement expeditiously and prematurely, Mayor Bradshaw had attempted to claim that Toledo did not maintain the police vehicles while in their possession, a claim which was proven to be false by maintenance records. On August 22, the Lewis County News requested a public records request regarding the Officer Sam Patrick lawsuit settlement. The City of Winlock response was “attorney client See records Page 6

privileged information.” Cities are public, there is no such thing as “attorney client privilege.” After informing the Winlock City Clerk of her erroneous response, the information was released on August 26, 2019. According to RCW 40 16.10 it reads “Every person who shall willfully and unlawfully remove, alter, mutilate, destroy, conceal, or obliterate a record, map, book, paper, document, or other thing filed or deposited in a public office, or with any public officer, by authority of law, is guilty of a class C felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in a state correctional facility for not more than five years, or by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars, or both. The City of Winlock continues to be plagued with issue after issue regarding records requests, and now the City Clerk is possibly in violation of RCW 40 16.10. Did the clerk commit the violation on her own or was she instructed by someone else not to release the documents?

Meterorite rocks from the sky

The Cascadia Meteorite Laboratory at Portland State University's Department of Geology is actively engaged in research and public outreach. Dick Pugh, field scientist for Cascadia Meteorite Laboratory at PSU, will be at our annual show at the Castle Rock Fairgrounds on September 21 and 22, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. He would love to look at any rock that you think may be a meteorite and the more kids he can engage the better! There is no charge for him to identify a meteorite. There have only been six meteorites found in the whole State of Washington and one of them was from someone bringing a rock into our show several years ago! It is estimated that there is one meteorite in every square mile if you can find it! He will bring a sampling of his meteorite collection for people to look at and pick up.

everyone back. The assembly started, as always, with the pledge of allegiance. Then the ASB president, Chloe Stewart, introduced all of the year’s ASB and class officers. After that, Chloe had a small speech about how she is excited to serve as president this year, and that she and her team had lots of ideas for the school year. They were very happy to start the year off on a good note. She also mentioned a few minor changes around the school, mainly what rooms different teachers moved to. The ASB and some of the teachers teamed up to make a nice little video to remind us of behavioral expectations and procedures, which was

shown at the assembly. The video gave concepts such as ‘how to act in the lunchroom’ and first showed a group of teachers acting as students showing us what we shouldn’t do, followed by a better example of what we should do. It was a cool and entertaining way to show us a few of the school’s expectations. I’m very excited about this school year; It shows tremendous promise to be outstanding, and I have a few classes that I’m interested in taking. I’d say that the two classes I’m looking forward to most are U.S History and Spanish II. All in all, it was a fantastic first day.
