Ryderwood News by CISSY SANDERS 360 295 3813

Toledo Cheese Day was once again a huge success. There were so many people in town and the police were working hard at directing traffic. I am sure Jim Wallace is headed back to California to release Bigfoot back into the wild. 2nd and 4th Friday of every month is the Open Mic at Cowlitz Prairie Grange from 7:00 p.m. to whatever. There is food served in the kitchen and it is donation at the door. It’s important to support our local granges and they offer meeting places and friendships along the way. On July 20 the Cowlitz Prairie Grange is having their monthly breakfast. This month’s special is blueberry pancakes. You can order pancakes and eggs or biscuits and gravy, all for $5. They are located at 5184 Jackson Highway in Toledo. Toledo Thursday Market is going very well, come down to the boat launch on Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to support your local farmers and crafters. This year they are full, head down to support your local farmers market. Toledo Library July 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. is Family Storytime. Music, movement, books and activities for the whole family. All ages welcome. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult. This is an early learning program led by Youth Services staff from the Winlock Timberland Library. The Esther Borte waterpark is now open, it’s fifty cents to start and a quarter thereafter for 5 minutes. The waterpark is located at Kemp Olson Park.

Ryderwood’s 4th of July celebration was among the best. Lots of grandkids visit this time of year and they love a Parade! Our Fire District’s antique truck and finest rigs led off the Parade, followed by: VFW District color guard, Paul Hayes escorting Grand Marshall Gary Bennett in his antique Jeep, the golf cart drill team, some old cars, rigs and more. The History Project brought up the rear with a narrated town tour on the town’s hayride wagon. The veterans and Women’s Club hosted the Picnic in the Park with delicious grilled burgers and dogs with an incredible array of potluck sides, salads and desserts. There were games (a watermelon-eating contest for the kids, the famous pie walk and horseshoes) and two more tours of the town. Thursday at 6:00 p.m. will be the monthly “Sing-Spiration” gospel music at the beautiful Ryderwood Community Church. Performers should arrive about 5:45 p.m. The motto is: “No service, no sermon, no offering – just great gospel music!” Light refreshments follow. Friday night’s dinner at the café will be Andy & Darlene’s soup and sandwich special for $8. Please make reservations by 6:00 p.m. Wednesday (call or text Linda at 360-749-1838) and plan to be seated at 5:00 p.m. A note to readers: Everyone is invited to enjoy all meals served at the café. While Friday night requires reservations, none are needed for Monday’s burgers and soup (4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m..) or Wednesday’s biscuits & gravy (7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.). This Monday has Mexican Train at 7:00 p.m. after burgers. The Senior Nutrition lunch menu for Tuesday the 23rd is chicken and rice casserole with glazed carrots and melon See toledonews Page 3 & berries. A $3 donation is requested of those over 60 and guests; $5 if younger. Call or text 360-355-7315 by 4:00 p.m. Monday for reservations. Again, all readers are invited.

messages, news feeds, and Twitter tweets? I thought about bringing up Elon Musk to Mike when we were talking about lawnmowers that don’t need a human behind them, but I didn’t want to interfere too much with how awesome Mike’s life must be. Here is a taste of what the youngest generation gets to experience. Neuralink, an Elon Musk company, describes itself on Twitter as “Developing ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers.” Wow! For those of you that don’t know what an Elon Musk is, it’s a billionaire genius commonly referred to as the real-life Iron Man. Not only does Elon Musk work on putting artificial intelligence in the brain, but he sends rockets to space, builds electric vehicles, and works on solar panels that look like roof shingles. Oh, he also started PayPal. However, the salt of the earth is made up of men like Mike. Mike is an amazing man that is well aware of what is going on in the world. He and his wife Barbara have chosen a simpler life though. Mike mentioned how he knows that the younger generation can’t escape all that comes with a cell phone. It’s a modern-day tool. But, one thing is for sure, I can’t get my yard to look like Mikes. Maybe I spend too much time on my phone?

citizens brings the ability for us to make positive changes,” Hayes continued. Hayes also stated, “we need to encourage the opportunity for those who are single or limited income. We have many retirees who are on a fixed income and we need to keep Toledo affordable.” One of the things Toledo has to deal with is their main road through town is Highway 505. “There is a lot of discussion about State Highway 505. It’s the main street in town and governed by the state,” Hayes continued. “We are also reviewing lot sizes in the city. Michelle Whitten, Toledo City Clerk brought us more information to review for the designated lot sizes for the city. Our input is important and we do it for open government.” “One of the challenges with open government is getting enough members and attending meetings for a quorum. The last meeting we spent two hours discussing the comprehensive plan and we only got part way through it,” Hayes said. Hayes has enjoyed his time this past year in Toledo. He stated, “The people in Toledo are wonderful, our neighbors have become our family. It’s a reciprocal relationship that you don’t find in the big city. Plus we enjoy giving back to the community.”

joints. Originally built in 1969, the bridge deck surface is showing its age and is in need of repair. To resurface the bridge and replace the expansion joints, contractor crews needed to close a single lane of traffic around-theclock, and temporarily reduce the speed limit to 55 mph for the duration of the project. Travelers should also expect intermittent, night time, double-lane and ramp closures as needed. For safety, bicyclists will follow a signed detour route along local roads, until construction is complete. Construction is scheduled to continue throughout the summer, and is scheduled for completion in fall 2019.
