Volleyball Roundup Lady Indians serve up two shutouts; Valley beats Raymond By GEORGE KUNKE SOUTH BEND - South Bend crushed Chief Leschi 25-5, 25-7 and 25-13 in a Pacific League volleyball match Thursday at Koplitz Field House before a crowd of about 65. Jessica Sanchez and Karley Reidinger spearheaded the Lady Indians on the offensive and defensive ends with vicious spikes and concrete blocks. Sanchez, Reidinger, Hannah Jewell and Joshlynne Johnson all turned in solid streaks while serving. South Bend, 5-3, hosted Willapa Valley last night, travels to Ilwaco Thursday and heads to North Beach Tuesday for Pacific League contests. The Lady Indians' junior varsity team competes at the Naselle Junior Var-

sity Volleyball Tournament Saturday. Raymond Wins 1 of 3 Raymond won one of its last three matches in volleyball, defeating Pe Ell, and then dropping competitions against arch rivals South Bend and Willapa Valley. South Bend whipped Raymond 3-0 last Tuesday (Oct. 2) at Seagull gym. “Against South Bend we had an off-game and didn't perform to our potential,” Raymond High School Head Volleyball Coach Rob Swogger told the Herald. “We had a difficult time passing and attacking the ball. We also weren't serving aggressively, which led to them being able to stay in system and attack the ball.” Willapa Valley 3, RHS 1 Willapa Valley toppled

Raymond 25-11, 18-25, 2510 and 26-24 last Thursday at Tenoski Gym in Menlo. “I was very proud of my girls getting this win especially since I was able to play them all,” First-year WVHS head coach Karissa Hodel told the Herald. “In the second (game) we made too many serve-receive mistakes, which allowed them to  get ahead and couldn't make a comeback. In the fourth game we made too many mistakes that almost cost them the game but they managed to pull it off. “Hannah Cook led  in serving with three aces and Katie Adkins and Olivia Betrozoff also contributed with two aces apiece,” Coach Hodel reported. “Katelyn McGough had Photo by George Kunke another perfect night of South Bend HS senior Karley Reidinger uses a nice touch to score a point against Chief Leschi setting with no mistakes Thursday night at Koplitz Field House.

Valley contract negotiations hit stalemate once again By Jeff Clemens Contract negotiations on October 3 between the Willapa Valley School District and teachers hit a stalemate once again.

When asked about the state of negotiations, Willapa Valley Superintendent Nancy Morris said, “It didn’t go too well and I’ve sent in a request for us to go to mediation. There is a large number of districts in a similar situation and it's not clear when the state will get to and respond to my request.” Morris

declined further statement but expressed hopes that the district and teachers can come to an agreement in the near future. Willapa Valley teachers decided prior to the start of school to return to work and negotiate at a later date. A choice which has placed the district in a peculiar place. It not only let both sides see what other districts agreed to but also put the district in a position it cannot afford a teacher strike. Teachers are requesting a contract mirroring South Bend and Raymond where See valley Page 3

First razor clam digs of season start Thursday The first razor clam dig of the fall season will get underway Thursday thru Saturday at various ocean beaches. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has approved the dig on evening tides at Twin Harbors, Copalis, and Mocrocks after marine toxin tests showed that clams on those beaches are safe to eat. No digging will be allowed on any beach before noon. The upcoming dig is approved on the following beaches, dates, and evening low tides: •Thursday, 8:58 p.m.; -0.6 feet; Twin Harbors, Mocrocks •Friday, 9:41 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Twin Harbors, Copalis •Saturday, 10:26 p.m.; +0.1 feet; Twin Harbors, Mocrocks Dan Ayres, WDFW

coastal shellfish manager, recommends that diggers hit the beach about an hour or two before low tide for the best results. Diggers want to be sure to come prepared with good lighting devices and always keep an eye on the surf, particularly in the fall when the best low tides come after dark, he added. “Digging after dark brings with it the spectacle of thousands of small lights representing individual razor clam diggers working their way up and down the beach,” Ayres said. The WDFW has tentatively scheduled another dig for Oct. 25-28, pending results of future toxin tests. More information on planned digs can be found on WDFW's razor clam webpage at https://wdfw. razorclams/.

All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2018-19 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW's website at https://fishhunt.dfw.  and from license vendors around the state. Under state law, diggers at open beaches can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger's clams must be kept in a separate container.

did tell myself that if something bigger came along I would consider it. I’m not really ready to talk about it yet, but maybe here soon I will be. I just need some time right now.” Strozyk’s retirement came as quite the shock See strozyk Page 3

PUD opposes carbon tax initiative By Jeff Clemens Pacific County PUD passed Resolution No. 1413 opposing Washington state Initiative-1631 also known as the Carbon Tax. During the PUD commissioners meeting on October 2, the commissioners and public were given a presentation of the effects of the tax. Commissioners Dianna Thompson, Dick Anderson, and Mike Swanson voted unanimously to approve the resolution. According to Resolution No. 1413, the initiative would impose an escalating tax on carbon emissions from electricity generated by fossil fuels, including electricity generated within or imported into Washington state or acquired by the Bonneville Power Administration. The fee would be $15 per metric ton of carbon dioxide emissions in 2020 and would increase by $2 per metric ton plus inflation each year. In 2017, PUD purchased 37,757 gallons of fleet fuel with a charge of $122,710. The carbon tax would have cost the district an additional $5,664 for a total cost of $128,374. PUD anticipates that should

the initiative pass the additional cost in 2020 would be around $233,000 with roughly $225,000 coming from power. The charge would then be handed down to PUD customers with an increased utility rate to offset the additional cost. The initiative will also affect the consumer market, especially at the gas pump. It’s estimated that a gallon of gas would rise roughly 14 cents as oil companies hand down the new charge to consumers. Washington residents already pay the third highest gas tax in the country. Should the initiative pass, Washington will become the first state to implement a tax or fee on carbon. The tax will go into a “Clean Up Pollution Fund” with 70% going to a clean air and clean energy account, 25% to the clean water and healthy forest account, and 5% to a healthy communities account. A 15 member public oversight board will be implemented and will not require any representation from utilities. Its anticipated the initiative would raise well over $2 billion dollars in just the first 5 fiscal years.

2 Sports Steady Titans charge past Indians; Smith, Jurek excel Wednesday October 10, 2018

By GEORGE KUNKE Max Smith turned in another dependable effort and Kollin Jurek showed that he’s arriving, too, for the Titans of Pe Ell-Willapa Valley. Once again the Titans started out slowly, but it didn’t much matter in the end as they methodically wore down South Bend 42-0 on a misty-drizzly night before a crowd of about 425 Friday night at Millam Field. Smith, a senior, has been a force ever since he got the number one running back slot after an injury to Peter Hamilton a few weeks ago. And, Jurek, just a sophomore, ran the ball more like a veteran than a sophomore still learning the ropes. Pe Ell-Willapa Valley Assistant Football Coach John Peterson, who has seen a few running backs during his 33 years of coaching, told the Herald, “Max Smith played very well – he’s a great football player. Max is Max. I was really happy for Kollin Jurek. He’s been on the cusp for breaking big runs and he finally broke out. He played very well. He’s a terrific kid who works hard in practice and blocks like crazy.” Smith mostly bashed his way for brutish yards but showed some razzle-dazzle moves, too, while gaining 168 yards on 24 yeoman’s carries for an average of

7.0 ypc and 3 touchdowns. On his first TD, a 16-yard jaunt, was a thing of beauty, as he started right, and then cut back twice to his left for the score. Smith’s next two TDs were up-the-gut runs from 3 and 8 yards out. “We address being physical,” Peterson said. “Run with power. It’s big-boy football! Get it up in there. Flash and dash is nice, but sometimes you gotta bite down on your mouthpiece and go after it.” Smith scored his fourth touchdown of the night late in the game when he picked off a pass and raced down the right sideline untouched for 65 yards, giving him 233 all-purpose yards. Jurek ended up with a career-high 109 yards on 14 carries, a touchdown, and he averaged 7.8 ypc. On his 67-yard TD, Jurek exploded like a Challenger Hemi engine on a deserted highway. Jurek also caught the only Titan completion – a 22-yard aerial TD compliments of sophmore QB Logan Walker. “Kollin made a nice run after that catch,” Peterson said. On the night, the Titans rammed their way for 299 yards on the ground at a clip of 6.4 ypc. The Titans just kept pounding and pounding the ball – 47 times in all. Coach Peterson was more than happy to give credit to the seven-man

offensive line, which also includes tight ends Sam Western (6-2, 180) and Wyatt Bush (6-0, 165), along with interior linemen Adam Smaciarz (5-8, 200), Jeremiah Yost (5-10, 185), Kiah Carter (6-2, 220), Luke Gerow (5-7, 165) and Kayden Miller (6-0, 180). Carter’s the only senior in the bunch; the rest are juniors. “Those linemen are doin’ a good job,” Peterson said. “Our backs block well, too.” Defensively, the Titans were led by Bush and Carter with 9 tackles apiece. Western and Smith had 6 total tackles each and Carson Cox, Jurek and Andrew Minton (sack) had 5 apiece. Cox intercepted a pass and caused 2 fumbles. “I’m a huge Wyatt Bush fan,” Peterson said. “He can play a lot of positions. He’s his own man and he’s so smart. You might burn him once, but you won’t burn him again. I like his temperment – he’s a thinking man’s football player. “Kiah Carter continues to play well,” Peterson said. “He never played linebacker before. He’s a big guy who can really run and he can whack ya pretty hard. He’s a solid football player and a great guy. “Carson Cox, if he isn’t the most improved player on the team, he’s close,” Peterson said. “It was a nice interception. He rocked a couple of guys out there.” Injury-wise, the Titans are still without five starters. Asked if anyone will be back for Friday’s game, Peterson shot, “God only knows.” About injuries, “My mom used to say, ‘If it doesn’t kill ya, it’ll make ya tougher.’ There’s good and bad with injuries. With kids out, it hurts your team, but it gives other kids a chance to step up and get better.” The Titans who are 5-2,

which counts the forfeit win over Chief Leschi, entertain North Beach Friday night (7 pm) and it’s Homecoming in Menlo at Crogstad Field. The Hyaks are 0-5. “We are scouting them right now,” Peterson said Sunday afternoon. “We don’t overlook anybody. About the time you do, you get beat. We don’t take anybody for granted. South Bend slipped to 1-5 heading into Friday’s game at Chief Leschi (0-6). “Hats off to South Bend, their kids played hard,” Peterson said. “The Pe Ell-Willapa Valley game started good,” SBHS Head Football Coach Shane Byington told the Herald. “The second quar-

ter got away from us. They are a good team and capitalized on some mistakes we made. Offensively, we couldn’t get much going. Defensively, we hung in there at the start of the game. “I thought Drew Rose played good on defense,” Byington added. “His knowledge of the game and hustle lasted all four quarters. Hunter Clements and Jacob Lush also played well on defense.” The Warriors already have one forfeit this season because of injuries and ineligible players. “Yes, hopefully, Chief Leschi plays Friday,” Byington said. “I have a feeling the game will go on. They have a great quarterback, so we will need to

contain him. They play a 40 on defense. The weather should be drier than it has, which will help us.” Scoring Summary First Quarter P-WV, 8:57: Max Smith, 16-yd run.

“Kollin clearly had his best game for us against South Bend. He had 109 yards on 14 rushes and a touchdown, and caught a pass and made a nice move after the catch for a touchdown. He’s a very solid offensive player and a very smart kid. He’s a really good student in school and a really good teammate. I like the way he goes about his business. Kollin is like a sponge the way he soaks up information. He’s a great guy.”

Diana Ramirez, SBHS

“Cesar has been playing well all season. We have had to change his position on the line recently and has done a great job wherever we put him. He has started showing more and more leadership as the season has gone on.”

“Diana has been a shutout goalie for us when we need one; like we did against Ilwaco. She has also been a hard worker in the midfield that has consistently broke through double and triple teams on the edge of the field with grit and determination. She is an old-school warrior the way she plays so tough and leads by example on the field. She is a freshman with a bright high school career ahead of her.”

Raymond Theatre “Re-boots” with 90th B Day Gala Fundraiser


Real ID, Assault Weapon initiative, Ulaunches nder new management, this event a new season of programming and carbon-free Washington!! By Jeff Clemens Washington State Governor Jay Inslee learned last week that Washington had finally met the criteria defined in the Real ID Act of 2005. Unfortunately for residents, this means almost nothing and here’s why; while the state is now compliant, the state also found a way to make money off of the act. The Real ID Act was written and passed in response to the attacks on 9/11 and made it so citizens had to prove that they were indeed U.S. citizens. Without an ID or driver's license that meets the criteria, a person is restricted from entering federal buildings and more importantly, traveling by air. So how did Washington finally become compliant? Well, the state now tags the wording “Federal Restrictions Apply” to any new drivers license that is issued, which does nothing in our favor. Instead, to hold an ID and not have federal restrictions, citizens will have to fork out an additional $24 to get a Washington State Enhanced Driver's License or ID. The process is pretty simple: you go to a Washington State Department of Licensing Office that can process them [Hoquiam is the closest], you fill out the paperwork, get interviewed, and wait around two weeks for it to come. My issue is by the state stamping three extra words on the standard license or ID the state became compliant only because another option was present that did check citizenship. Washington once again found a nifty way to screw its citizens out of a few more dollars. With the number of travelers in and out of the state, Washington stands to make millions off of three little words. Likewise, Initiative 1639 is just another half hobbled attempt to solve the real issue of gun violence. The initiative looks to make it more difficult to get what is classified as a “semi-automatic assault rifle.” Not only would a purchaser need to complete a more extensive background check, but they would also need to complete a state-recognized safety class. The initiative goes on to require safe storage of a firearm (which should already be done anyway) and makes harsh penalties for violations. Someone steals your firearm and kills someone, not only are they held accountable but so are you because it was accessed by someone other than you. And don’t forget the $25 fee attached to all purchases to fund the cost of

documenting all the sales too. Once again Washington finding a way to make a few more bucks... The reality is our state is once again attempting to fix something that doesn’t need to be fixed. Assault rifles, or how us gun snobs like to call them, sporting rifles, only account for a very small percentage of shootings. Handguns account for more gun violence than all other types combined and they already have a thorough background check in place. The real issue is keeping firearms out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them, to begin with. As I’ve said before, several mass shooters in the US shouldn’t have had a firearm to begin with, and had the current laws been actually been followed they wouldn’t have gotten one. No matter how strict our laws are in our state or any others, the violence will continue. Criminals and those with ill intent will continue to find a way to cause harm. Hence in recent memory attacks with knives and using vehicles to plow pedestrians over. Let's not forget the armed man with an assault rifle who stopped the Texas church shooter or the armed citizen in Tumwater who stopped the Walmart shooter. Guns aren’t the problem, people are. Lastly, Initiative 1631 the proclaimed carbon tax is about as absurd as the myth of global warming. The state created a magical dollar amount of $15 to be taxed on each metric ton of carbon the state speculates is polluted into Washington air. Our state would be the only state in the U.S. or really anywhere to implement such an idiotic thing. The idea is by charging polluters for their pollution the state can counteract their impact with cleaner renewable sources and projects. So what's my issue you ask? Who do you think is going to foot that bill...not the! Each and every one of us who has a power bill, drive a vehicle, or purchase anything anywhere. Yes, said companies will be charged a tax, but they will hand that charge down to consumers with increased utility rates (which Pacific County PUD has already made clear will be done) or by raising prices on items. The brainiacs at the capital are becoming as intelligent as the thought of sending a monkey into space accomplished anything. The best part, we keep voting these people back into office.

been said to be leagues away from a compromise. The district is unsure when the next negotiation will take place or when mediation will begin. According to Morris, and other school districts, once mediation begins both sides typically reach terms quickly.

In recent years he’s worked extremely hard to get grants to replace older equipment at the fire department and recently was awarded a grant to replace outdated firefighter bunker gear. His entire career has been dedicated to the citizens of Raymond and North Pacific County. Stroyzk will be the second Raymond Fire Department firefighter to hang up their gear and end a long, dedicated career this year. Longtime Firefighter/EMT and Captain, Darren Manlow retired from the department in August after over 20 years of service and commitment to the community.

Dave graduated from the University of Idaho-Moscow with an education specialist degree in psychology. He married Anita Sue Howland on September 8, 1965 in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. He was very active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and held many callings. As a young man, Dave was an avid fisherman and hunter. He was a crack shot and almost always brought home an elk. Later, he enjoyed “N” scale trains, watercolor painting, and gardening. He had a soft spot in his heart for animals, and loved Star Trek and science fiction. His absolute favorite pastime was spending time with his grandchildren; they were his pride and joy. When his three sons were growing up, Dave very much enjoyed being in Boy Scouts with them. He enjoyed a good snowball fight and making snow forts. He also enjoyed Hooky Bobing with all his children. He would get them up for school at 6:30 a.m. with LOUD classical music; they responded by cranking up their rock ‘n’ roll. Dave will be lovingly remembered and very missed by those he leaves behind. He is survived by his wife, Anita Sue (Howland) Wright; daughter, Rebecca Ruth Wright; sons, Adam Arthur Wright, Matthew Howland Wright, and Noah David Wright and his wife, Kyla; grandchildren, Aspen, William, Maxwell, Maci, Owen and Henry; and sister, Betty Ford. He was predeceased by his parents; and sisters, Susan Loughmiller, and Diane Wright. Services will be held Saturday, October 13, 2018, 3:00 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 245 Jackson Ave., Raymond, WA 98577.

Distracted driving causes 30% of traffic fatalities

Washington State Patrol (WSP) troopers recently conduct a statewide emphasis on distracted driving. According to the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, distracted driving is the cause of 30% of traffic fatalities and makes up 23% of all serious injury collisions in the state. So far in 2018, the WSP has contacted 18,557 drivers for distracted driving. In 2017, troopers stopped 17,058 drivers. According to RCW 46.61.672, drivers are prohibited from using a personal electronic device while operating a motor vehicle on a public highway — which includes when stopped in traffic or at a traffic light. Personal electronic devices aren’t just limited to cell phones, but also includes laptop, tablets, gaming devices, etc. A driver is only allowed the minimal use of a finger to activate, deactivate, or initiate a function on the device. However, drivers are allowed to use their phones if: · It’s hands-free and can be started by using a single touch or swipe of a finger. · You are parked or stopped out of the flow of traffic and safely off the roadway. · Calling 911. The penalty for distracted driving is a $136 citation for the first offense. If you’re issued another citation within five years, the penalty raises to at least $234. Additionally, each offense is reported to your insurance companies. Drivers can also be penalized for a secondary violation of dangerously distracted under RCW 46.61.673. Drivers can receive an additional $99 penalty for being dangerously distracted if a driver commits a traffic violation because they were distracted. The WSP would like to remind all drivers that there is no call, text, or update that is worth a life. Let’s all work together to keep Washington roads safe by paying attention.

By GEORGE KUNKE Raymond got off to a slow start offensively at North Beach on a pleasant Saturday afternoon before the powerful Seagull running game took off during a 38-0 victory over the Hyaks. Patrick Edwards scurried for 144 yards and McCartney Maden darted for 114 to lead the eventual romp. Raymond led 6-0 after one quarter and 12-0 at halftime. “We got off to a pretty slow start Saturday afternoon,” RHS Assistant Football Coach Mike Tully told the Herald. “Penalties slowed down a number of our first half drives and kept a few of North Beach's going. We also threw a pair of interceptions in the first half, including our first offensive play of the game. We were able to clean things up in the second half and do a better job of finishing off our drives. We had a number of players out due to injury, so we had quite a few guys playing in positions that weren't familiar to them.” Patrick Edwards and McCartney Maden continued to run well,” Tully added. Edwards ended up with an average of 8.5 yds per

he caused a fumble. Reese Garcia made 9 tackles (6 assists) and Cesar Delgado added 13 total tackles (11 assists). Mason Crawford picked off a pass for an interception. Jordan threw the ball only 4 times, completing 1 for 23 yds with 2 interceptions. Crawford caught the pass. North Beach fell to 0-5 heading ito Friday's game at Pe Ell-Willapa Valley (5-2) in Menlo. Scoring Summary First Quarter RHS, 7:01: McCartney Maden, 15-yd run. PAT failed. Second Quarter RHS, 8:54: Patrick Edwards, - 7-yd run. PAT no good. Third Quarter RHS, 9:19: Maden, 40yd run. PAT failed. RHS, 1:48: Edwards, 17-yd run. 2-pt failed. Fourth Quarter RHS, 9:24: Maden, 15yd run. 2-pt failed. RHS, 6:47: Jack Jordan, 1-yd run. Edwards run for 2-pt conversion. For Raymond, now 3-3, it was its third straight victory heading into Friday night's Senior night home game versus Ocosta. The Wildcats, 4-1, are coming off a 20-7 home loss to

Ilwaco (5-1). The Wildcats are led by quarterback Cole Hatton and running back Kobe Beck. Beck is averaging 119.2 yards rushing per game with 596 yds on the season at 5.1 ypc and 9 TDs. Hatton has completed 37 of 74 passes for 622 yds and 7 TDs, and has only thrown 3 INTs. “Ocosta is definitely an improved team from last year,” Tully offered. “They have some size up front and like to line up and power straight ahead offensively. They do some different things defensively, so we'll need to be ready to adjust on the fly. “Beck and Hatton are good athletes, so we'll definitely need to account for them on both sides of the ball,” Tully said. “We just need to execute and do our job on every play.” Like many teams at this point of the season, the Seagulls have felt some injuries. “We had four kids out with a variety of injuries against North Beach,” Tully said. “None are season threatening, but a couple of them could be out for another week or two. Hopefully, we can keep everyone else healthy and be back to full strength soon.”

Gym. The Lady Seagulls visit Chief Leschi in Puyallup tomorrow before hosting Ocosta Tuesday. All three are Pacific League matches. Ocosta 3, Valley 1 Ocosta won a hotly contested match against Willapa Valley 25-22, 25-22, 22-25 and 25-16 last Tuesday (Oct. 2) at Westport. “It was definitely a battle,” Coach Hodel told the Herald. “In the second (game) we were down by 10 points and made a comeback but couldn't pull off the win. We came on top in the third with getting a lead on them  to get the win. In the fourth (game) we let them get too much of a lead on us and couldn't get ahead. “We had an amazing night of 96 percent serving with only missing three out of 79 serves,” Coach

Hodel noted. “Hallee Laymen led with seven solo blocks. Katelyn McGough had a perfect night of setting with no mistakes and had eight assists. Raina Jones also contributed with eight assists. We were well rounded with the attacks on our team. Hannah Cook lead the team with eight kills while Hallee Layman and Grace Hodel contributed with six kills a piece. Olivia Betrozoff also had

Seagulls start slowly, and then crash past Hyaks 38-0 carry on 17 rushes and 2 touchdowns, Maden transferred the ball 9 times with an average of 12.7 ypc with 3 TDs. Maden also showed off his skills on punt returns with 80 yards on 3 runbacks and he returned a kickoff for another 20 yds. The Seagulls ran the ball for 290 yds at 8.3 ypc and 6 touchdowns against an outmanned Hyak defense. “Defensively, we had a number of guys put up good stats,” Tully said. “The linebacking corp of Patrick Edwards, Jack Jordan, and Reese Garcia played well. Cesar Delgado and Christian Anderson also played well up front. As a group, we held North Beach to just 118 yards of total offense.” Edwards racked up a dozen tackles with 6 solo stops, 1 for loss and he recovered a fumble. Curtis Broten captured 8 enemy ball-carriers and 6 were of the individual variety. Jack Jordan totalled 8 tackles with 5 solo jobs. Christian Anderson had another solid game with 8 tackles (3 solos), 1½ for loss and 1 sack. O' ahu Ena Ena had 7 tackles (5 solos) with 1 for loss. Seth Angelovich rounded up 5 tackles with 4 solos, 3 for loss, a sack and

and had seven assists. Raina Jones also contributed with seven assists. Grace Hodel led the team in attacks with seven kills. Hallee Layman and Katelyn McGough also pulled in six kills apiece for the team. Hannah Cook led the team in digs with 19 and no errors. “We had an amazing night blocking as a team,” Coach Hodel added. “Hallee Layman led with 11 solo blocks and nine assisted blocks. Grace Hodel had seven solo blocks and four assisted blocks. We've been working at getting our block down and it showed tonight. We still need a little bit more work but we will get it down.” Coach Swogger said his Lady Seagulls showed improvement. “Against Valley we played much better,” Swogger said. “We had some of-

fensive woes and struggled to put the ball away. We did play with more fire and passion. Hopefully, we can duplicate that level of mental focus for the rest of the season; if so, we should be fine.” Raymond 3, Pe Ell 0 Raymond disposed of host Pe Ell 3-0 on September 27. Tina Sypaphay knocked in 8 kills for the Lady Gulls and Hannah Miller added 5 kills and 4 blocks. “Sadie Warnstadt had a great night passing for us, as did Kennis Harland,” Swogger said. “We did well as a team against Pe Ell,” Swogger said. “Our middles had a great night blocking and attacking.” Raymond took a 3-5 overall record into its match versus Life Christian Academy last nite at Seagull


five kills. Leading in Digs with 15 was Katie Adkins. “We're starting to get the hang of our defense and getting better at reading the ball,” Coach Hodel added. “We still have work that needs to be done but we are getting there.” Kaylee Barnum and Kylee Poirier (12 blocks) both blasted in 17 kills for the Wildcats. Emily Snider was a force at the service line while hitting of 25 of

26 serves. Snider also had 30 assists. Evalyn Marsh scooped up 16 digs for the winners. Layne Martin scored a dozen kills for OHS. Ocosta is 8-1 on the season; Valley is 4-4. The Vikings visited South Bend last night, host Northwest Christian Thursday and travel to rival Pe Ell Tuesday for Pacific League matches.

To the Editor:

While I no longer live in the Willapa Harbor area, I still maintain close contact with many people there, and I try to stay in tune with what is happening. I recently heard that the South Bend library is closed due to structural concerns. This news saddens me deeply, as the library has played a key role in my life. I’m currently working for the academic library at Furman University, a small liberal arts school in South Respectfully, Carolina. I’m approaching Mike Sullivan Superior Court Judge, the end of my third year here, which will mark eight years Ret. and counting of my working in an academic library.

ber in the library is a direct result of my experience in the Timberland Regional Library system as a child, most notably in the Raymond and South Bend branches, but also in Ilwaco, Aberdeen, Hoquiam, and Naselle. My parents fostered a love for reading in all of us at a young age, and they encouraged us to explore all the resources that were available. We used the library to support many of our homeschool studies, to provide pleasure reading, and to inform our pursuit of various hobbies. I remember showing up every week with two of us working together to carry a laundry basket full of books as we returned dozens of books and checked out nearly a hundred more. We were such frequent patrons and avid readers that the Raymond manager asked us to provide specific requests and recommendations as they made purchasing decisions for the juvenile collection, and many years they purchased nearly everything we suggested. Our use of the library wasn’t limited to just books. Every year we participated in summer reading programs, and we loved the various events that the libraries brought to the community. I remember handling reptiles, admiring magicians, listening to storytellers, and so much more. We begged our parents to take us all over the counties to see as many of the programs as we could, sometimes more than once, and we loved browsing the shelves at the other branches while we were there. We often used the internet for research when the library first made it available, as we didn’t have it at home for several years. We also enjoyed playing the occasional computer game, although our parents discouraged that unless we were spending several hours at the library. Speaking of spending several hours there, the Raymond and South Bend libraries were our favorite place to be dropped off while our parents ran errands or took siblings to various activities. We’d do homework, find new books, and answer questions for other patrons. The librarians knew us well enough that they never asked for our library cards. We’d walk in the door, and by the time we finished unloading our returns, they had our holds checked out and ready for us to load into the basket. The librarians cared about us, not just as kids walking in their doors, but as individuals who were part of the community. They knew our names, our ages, our interests, our friends, our routines. They made book suggestions, let us know when a favorite author had released a new

mond, we were Paul’s kids. At the library, though, Paul and Alison were the Turner kids’ parents. Because of this experience, when I reached college and neared the end of my freshman year, I looked around and asked myself, “If I could work anywhere on campus, what would be my dream job?” There was only one place on the list. I found a friend who worked in the library and asked her how to get a job. By the end of the day, I’d scheduled an interview, and by the end of the week, I had a job offer starting my sophomore year. The rest, as they say, is history. I’ve worked in circulation, reference, and technical services. I’ve helped with shelving and interlibrary loan. I’ve worked in acquisitions, handled course reserves, supervised student workers, and eradicated mold from a collection of over 300,000 items. I currently oversee acquisitions and manage all serials and electronic resources for Furman. I am who I am today due in large part to the library. It shaped my view of the world, provided me access to resources far beyond what my family could have offered, and led me to a fun and fulfilling career path where I’m immersed in the world of learning. I consider libraries to be portals of knowledge, vital to helping complete the connection between facts and application to life. I can’t imagine my childhood without a library, and picturing the folks in South Bend having to make their way even the short distance to Raymond makes my heart hurt. Kids need a safe place to hang out. Adults need a place to search for work, print their resumes, and expand their understanding of the world. Having a library within walking or biking distance is so critical to the success of any community, but particularly to one with the unique needs found in our own Willapa Harbor. If we can gather Pennies for P.O.O.L., we can fund a library. Pursue grants, run fundraisers, start small, and don’t give up. One of my favorite quotes posted at work says, “A university is just a groups of buildings gathered around a library.” Another says, “You can tell much about a university by how it values its library.” Substitute “community” instead of “university,” and you’ll express well how I feel about a library as an essential community hub.
