County and DNR shrug responibilities with Toledo mine By Lynnette Hoffman If you were driving on Mandy Road along the Cowlitz River just west of I-5 and east of the town of Vader back in 2012, you might not have noticed the small, sleepy gravel mine located at 451 Mandy Rd, known as the Foster Creek Pit and today operated by Eagle Cliff Northwest, LLC. Back in 2012, the Foster Creek Pit was just a small pond nestled among the rows of crops and farmland, barely a few acres in size. Today, it's hard to miss the sprawling 35+ acre Foster Creek Pit, the continuous stream of trucks entering and exiting the site, the plumes of dust and smoke rising from the operations and the incessant sound of the gravel crusher. Neighbors and passersby are all asking the same questions: how was the mine allowed to get so big when the mine's permit only allows a maximum size of 20 acres? Who’s job is it to make sure the mine is operating legally? The answer to both questions is a classic case of governmental finger pointing and nonaccountability, leading to over six years of ongoing permit violations at the Foster Creek Pit with virtually no enforcement or repercussions for the mine operator. Foster Creek pit began in 1992, when former owner Donna Wallace applied for a mining permit from the Department of Natural Resources. The application clearly stated that the total area to be mined was 20 acres, with the remaining portion of the land to remain “existing pasture” and be “undisturbed.” In 2012, Eagle Cliff Northwest, LLC purchased the mining rights and took over the operations at Foster Creek Pit. Eagle Cliff began rapidly expanding the mining

operation, increasing the mined area more than 500% in the first year of ownership. By 2013, the Foster Creek Pit had expanded past the authorized permit boundary. The pit attracted the attention of DNR, who issued a notice of correction determining that the mine was operating in violation of state law. The notice of corrections threatened assessment of civil penalties or suspension of operation at the mine if the violations were not rectified within 60 days. The violations continued and DNR took no action. This is the first in a long series of governmental decisions which turned a blind eye to the issues at Foster Creek Pit and allowed the illegal operation of the mine to continue. In 2014, DNR required Eagle Cliff to submit a new mining permit application to correct “inconsistencies and deficiencies in the current permit.” But Eagle Cliff did not submit an acceptable application, and instead bulldozed ahead, rapidly expanding operation at the mine well over the 20 acre limit in violation of the permit. Eagle Cliff’s expansion of the mining operations also pushed mining operations into the floodway of the Cowlitz River in violation of the mine’s shoreline permit issued by Lewis County. The expansion resulted in stockpiling within the 100’ setback from the nearby Gee Cee Truck Stop septic drain field, again, violating the mining permit and also Department of Health requirements. By 2016, the Foster Creek Pit had been operating illegally beyond its permit boundary for three years, with no actual enforcement by DNR or Lewis County. No fines, no stop work order, no shut down of operations. Instead, DNR issued another toothless order

Summer is definitely here, this week it’s going to be in the 70’s according to my little handy dandy weather map. That means it’s perfect weather to do whatever it is that you want to do. This is it! The big 35th annual Mt. St. Helens Bluegrass Festival is this coming weekend. Head on down to Toledo High School to enjoy some of the best bluegrass music you will find in the area. If you haven’t been, it’s quite the event to watch. Hope to see you there! Our prayers go out to Jessie Hull and Rylee Birdwell who this past week both had brain surgery. The entire town of Toledo has been hanging banners, getting fundraisers going, etc. I am so impressed with Toledo’s sense of community. What a great city Toledo is! Here is the update on both young ladies: Rylee is slowly healing and fighting hard to regain all movement on her left side. She had another MRI and it shows there is a slight piece of the tumor that remains deep in her brain. The doctors will continue to monitor it and are confident that they can attack it with radiation or chemotherapy later down the road. There is a small blood clot that has formed on her brain from surgery and they are hoping it will slowly disappear with medication. Rylee is in good spirits and continues to be positive, she is one tough girl for sure! She will be having a brain scan today and we are hoping that the drain tubes will be removed by Sunday. Keep the prayers flowing our way as we are feeling them all! Jessie (Jessica) Hull back in June had a brain aneurysm and was rushed to Mary Bridge for surgery. They were not able to get all of it due to swelling so she will have another surgery. Then another surgery to remove the rest of the mass.

Napavine student taking a college course this summer By Melanie Langley Brandon Zandecki, a Napavine student, is taking a course at Centralia College before he begins Running Start in the fall semester. He’s currently taking an Algebra II class, which is a requirement for high school. The reason he’s doing this is because if he hadn’t taken it, he’d be making a trip back to Napavine every day in the next couple of semesters in order to finish out the requirement. He found out about this option when he was signing up for his quarter classes at Centralia College. He didn’t want to have to make the trip back to Napavine every day for just one class. He decided that taking the Algebra II course at the college would be the best option for him. He also decided that it was best to take it during the summer. Knowing this choice would sacrifice some of his summer, he still went through with it, since he viewed it as the best option. Brandon aims to earn his AA at the time of his high school graduation in the Spring of 2021. With that in mind, it’s easier to obtain it if he had completed Algebra II at the time he starts full-time Running Start. He explained that the class itself is much different than that of a high school class, that you go at your own pace, although there are subjects in the class

Brandon Zandecki

that need to be learned by a certain time. In general, the class is faster paced than a regular high school course. Another difference is the time it takes for him to complete the homework. The time it took him to complete homework for six classes in high school is the same amount of time it takes him to complete homework for the college class, which is 1-2 hours.

When asked if he recommended taking a college class during the summer or doing Running Start he said, “I recommend it to a select group of people; people who feel like they can keep up with the work. If you’re someone who doesn’t finish homework in time at high school or you find yourself easily sidetracked, this isn’t the best option for you.”

Town Crier's Yard of the Week:

A yard of mastery

Letters From the Editor Well Done Toledo For the past week, we have watched an entire community rally around two young ladies in Toledo. These two young ladies had brain surgery the same week and they are friends. I first received a call from Donna Wallace from Donna’s Place about Rylee Birdwell, letting me know she was going to do a fundraiser. The next day she called back with the information about Jessie Hull. It has turned into a fundraiser for both girls on September 7. As I was calling for advertising for an event in Toledo this week, one business said: “l want my ad to include #ryleestrong and #jessiestrong.” It struck me, I wonder if everyone wanted the same thing. As I called, I asked Toledo businesses if they wanted the hashtags and they were all unanimous “yes!” Before long I realized they were advertising to show these young women support not for the festival alone. Winlock businesses have also participated. Toledo is a community, it’s not just a town. Every business owner knew about these two young ladies. The businesses have banners up, they are doing what they can to show their support.

Toledo has a community spirit, it’s something incredible to watch. Toledo social media is never attacking people, instead, it shows support for their community over and over. Their volunteers are always looking for ways to work together, it’s never a power struggle. It’s a communitydriven by community volunteers who have one goal, make the community better. They don’t need individual credit because credit for the community helps the community as a whole. It’s something special to watch a community like Toledo. Their volunteer groups grow. If you attend Cheese Days you see this community spirit. It starts with the Cheese Day booklets, the support from all of Lewis County for Toledo is unbe-

lievable, the booklet says a lot about their volunteers. They have events for community members to participate in, not just watch. They draw a crowd like no other event in south county. If you watch the parade, several volunteers who were in it were applauded. As you look at the Town Crier this week, please look at the ads. Each of these businesses wanted to show their support for these young ladies. I was not able to get in touch with every business in town but I am sure the response would have been the same, “yes.” To watch an entire community come together for two young ladies brought tears to my eyes. Well done Toledo, well done! ~Lynnette Hoffman

Napavine students go to Young Life Summer Camp By Melanie Langley July 19-25 a group of Napavine students joined many other teens from Washington at the Washington Family Ranch Young Life Camp. Throughout the school year these students took part in fundraisers to raise money in order to attend, working with the Napavine Young Life Club leaders. Young

Life is a Christian ministry that works with and reaches out to middle school, high school and college-aged kids across the United States and more than 90 other countries in the world. While I did not go to this camp myself, I reached out to someone who did go, Bryce Ford. He is a fellow Napavine student and a good See camp Page 11

to rectify deficiencies, again identifying Eagle Creek’s significant violation, requiring immediate submission of a new mining permit application, and threatening further civil and legal penalties, to include daily fines of $500 and potential legal action, if all deficiencies were not rectified within 60 days. Eagle Cliff attempted to submit the required new mining permit application its violation of the County shoreline permit and septic drain field setback made it impossible for Lewis County to sign off on Eagle Cliff’s

new application. Eagle Cliff continued to violate DNR’s order, and failed to submit a new completed permit application for the mine. But, did DNR finally step in to stop the ongoing illegal operation in the mind? Did Lewis County finally step in to enforce its shoreline permit and prohibit work in the floodway? No, in the meantime the county is pointing the finger at DNR and DNR is saying it is the county’s responsibility. Finally, in late 2018, almost five years after the Foster Creek pit first began operating illegally, Lewis

County finally issued a notice of violation and stop work order to Eagle Cliff for continued excavation in the floodway of the Cowlitz River. While it appears that Eagle Cliff has, for now, ceased work in the floodway, serious questions remain about why it took the county this long to act and why more active enforcement actions have not been taken by the county and the other responsible agencies. Eagle Cliff has been operating Foster Creek Pit illegally for over six years, has expanded the mine area to over 35 acres,

nearly double the maximum allowed under the mining permit. Meanwhile, responsible government agencies have taken no action to fine Eagle Cliff for its violation of the permit, or to prevent continued work outside the lawful permit boundary. Instead, Eagle Cliff has been rewarded for its illegal acts by mining in and profiting from, a larger excavation area than allowed under the permit, seriously impacting lives and property of surrounding neighbors like Scott Crossfield. Scott Crossfield who is on the hill right above the

mining site stated, “I have been living a nightmare for 7 years. I get little to no peace or quiet in my own home. Because of the rock crusher and beeping trucks. They are allowed to operate nonstop in an agricultural zone. No Lewis County citizens should have to endure this.” The drain field is owned by Gee Cee’s, Jim Wallace stated, “I am extremely concerned about the potential impact to our sewer drainfield. I appreciate Commissioners Stampers efforts and attention to this matter. Apparently, government agen-

cies aren’t able to enforce the permit requirements.” Commissioner Stamper continued, “The county is not doing their due diligence nor is the Department of Natural Resources. We are not trying to shut anyone down, we want it done correctly with permits. The mining is still continuing with no consequences by Lewis County or Department of Natural Resource.” What will it take for either government agency to take action and to make this mining operation operate in the 20 acres approved for mining?

MaryAnn said, “there have been many little squished frogs brought up to the house by the grandkids over the years.” This summer has been a pleasure for me. Bob and MaryAnn, like all of the other yard of the week participants, have shown what a great community we live in. So far only Winlock and Toledo yards have been written about. There is one article on Vader coming soon. That leaves two more Yard of the Week articles to be written.
