Johnny Capwell of Pomeroy had an idea to put a large “P” for Pomeroy on the hillside on the east side of town; friends surprised him when they also put “38” — the year he graduated from Pomeroy High School.

The Johnny Capwell Story At 90, he embodies the pride and dedication of his beloved Pomeroy By Mary Tatko

Of Target Publications

POMEROY — A pristine U.S. flag moves in the breeze above a U.S. Navy flag atop a pole in Johnny and Betty Capwell’s front yard. That there’s an equally wellcared-for flag across the street

at the library is no coincidence. Through the local Veterans of Foreign Wars post, Capwell keeps flags flying at points throughout Pomeroy, including the cemeteries, fire station, rose garden, city park and golf course. Since June, there’s been another symbol overlooking this small farming town: a large letter “P” on a hill to the east. For Capwell, 90, the letter identifying and honoring his town and high school was a longtime dream. “Well, I just had to have that

P,” he said, chuckling. Community volunteers who completed the project dedicated it to Capwell, adding the numerals “38,” the year he graduated, below. “Which was a complete surprise,” his wife, Betty, said. A World War II and Korean War veteran, local historian and volunteer, Capwell radiates pride in his community and his country. He was born in Canada at his family’s homestead on the Alberta prairie. The family moved to Elk, Wash., in 1927,

and arrived by train in Pomeroy a year later. “The snow was like this,” Capwell said, holding his right hand a couple feet above the ground. “And still coming down.” His family lived in adjacent Pataha for a while, then in Pomeroy, where his father, a former grocery man and homesteader, worked as a veterinarian. Being a cattle and horse doctor, Capwell said, made it possible for his father to get the family through the Great Depression.

Thanks to his three years as high school athletic manager, Capwell himself earned the nickname “Doc” since he always was first on the scene with Ace bandages to wrap a knee or an ankle if a player was hurt. The 59 students in his class took a vote to decide whether to graduate in caps and gowns or regular clothes, becoming the first class at Pomeroy High School to wear caps and gowns when that option won out.

Johnny Capwell

Capwell started his career as a mailman in the Navy and retired from the U.S. Postal Service in 1980.


From page 10

“You know, at Depression time it was rough,” Capwell said, explaining his vote for the new uniform. “They didn’t have anything; the girls couldn’t afford a new dress.” After graduation, Capwell’s jobs included hauling wheat for farmers at Pomeroy and picking apples in Hood River, Ore., for 10 cents a box. He helped deliver Pepsi for a friend of his father, the distributor in Lewiston, and soon was driving routes in Asotin and Clarkston as well as Pomeroy. He became an independent distributor for Idaho Beverages, owned by J.B. Evans, a job he kept until Dec. 7, 1941. When he heard the news of the Japanese attack on Pearl

Harbor, Capwell said, he knew it would be only a matter of time until he was called upon to serve his country. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy July 30, 1942, working for the state highway department until he left for training in San Diego. In February 1943, he left San Diego aboard the USS President Monroe, bound for New Caledonia. Ultimately, his assignment was on the USS Fomalhaut, an amphibious cargo attack ship, or AKA. It carried ammunition to combat ships, traveling alone, unaccompanied by a single destroyer, throughout the South Pacific, “from New Zealand to Okinawa and everywhere in between,” Capwell said. He started as a machinist, then became a signalman. In 1944, the Fomalhaut returned to the United States for maintenance, passing through the

Capwell holds up a picture of him and the crew he was part of during his military service. Panama Canal and docking at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York. While there, the ship’s mailman left, and Capwell was assigned the job, which he kept for the remainder of the war. He remembers carrying his pistol, a .45 automatic, everywhere while the ship was docked, even riding the New York City subway with it slung on his hip. After another trip to the South Pacific to deliver ammunition, the ship returned to the United States in 1946 and was decommissioned at the Philadelphia Naval Yard. Capwell’s World War II service ended March 8, 1946. Returning to Pomeroy, he worked for a while at the flour mill, then started at the Ford dealership as a parts man. He and Betty were married

Aug., 20, 1950, but they didn’t have much time together before he was returning to war. “We had just been married four months when he got called back into the Navy,” Betty said. Capwell remembers flying in a small “plywood plane” from San Francisco to Honolulu, where they landed on the water. Next, he was on a four-engine ship to Tokyo, where he would resume his role as mailman. “Boy, Japan was the best place to be there,” he said, recalling the good food, including fresh eggs and frog legs. By January 1952, he was back in Pomeroy, working at Wells Motor Co. In 1954, he began working as a substitute clerk at the Pomeroy Post Office. Ten years later, he became a rural carrier on Route 1, including Tucannon, Pomeroy and

Pataha. He retired from the Postal Service Oct. 7, 1980. The Capwells are close to their children: Colleen, who lives in Spokane; Clark, in Colfax; and Kimberly, in Pomeroy. Betty, who for “a good many years” was employed as the bookkeeper at what is now Ferd Herres Chevrolet, took time off when the children were born. Attending world’s fairs became a tradition for the family, starting in 1962 in Seattle, where they stood in a long line to ride to the top of the Space Needle, then Expo ’74 in Spokane and Vancouver, Canada, in 1986. “We always went for a vacation with the kids,” Capwell said.

They also made time for volunteering, and still do. Betty, 79, volunteers at the elementary school for an hour in the mornings, then heads to the museum in the afternoon. He was school board clerk for

12 years, and has been involved with the museum in Pomeroy since its inception. In November 1977, when it opened, he and another veteran put up the flag. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a Navy uniform on, which I can still wear today,â&#x20AC;? he said. Capwell has become a human repository of Pomeroy and Pataha history. Even though his health has prevented him from volunteering at Pomeroyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

and with Bettyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help he is navigating his health issues with aplomb, many days Capwell just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the energy to leave his home, or sometimes even his chair. What bothers him more than any thoughts of his own mortality is the fact thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work still so much to be done. He used to place flags at the cemetery on Memorial Day, but this past year he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to do it. Other volunteers stepped in, but one grave was missed. When he heard about it, he knew exactly where it was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always know where to find everything,â&#x20AC;? he said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate the Pomeroy residents who have volunteered alongside him, at the VFW, the museum, the library, the schools. In fact, Capwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fondness for the little town centers on the people there. Standing in front of the library, across the street and a just few steps away from his front door, Capwell looked east toward the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pâ&#x20AC;? on the hill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d wanted for a long time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody has treated me so good, so good.â&#x20AC;? And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not done yet. After pulling up in front of Capwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house and unloading a large box with a U.S. flag on the label, the local UPS driver visited with Capwell for a few moments. The box contained the latest shipment for the VFW: highquality flags â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only the best, Capwell said â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to be distributed in Pomeroy.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good Lord gave me a second chance,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m truly thankful.â&#x20AC;? Now, Capwell has lymphoma, and his heart, which gave him a second chance all those years ago, is ailing once again. He knows of two others from his high school class still living: Ferd Herres, now in Walla Walla, and a woman in a nursing home in very poor health. Though his mind is sharp,

Twin County United Way begins its fall campaign

Seniors are critical to success of group’s “A lot of our donors and volunteers are folks who are retired.” — Ron Ramos various projects, Ramos said, of how Twin County Fundraising still defines the new executive United Way benefits from the organization, which launched its director says time, treasure and talent local traditional yearly campaign in By Mary Tatko

Ron Ramos recently took over as director of Twin County United Way in Lewiston.

Twin County United Way executive director Ron Ramos hit the ground running when he started his job in early September, just as the organization was beginning its annual fund-raising campaign. It didn’t take long for Ramos to get a glimpse of the role seniors play in United Way’s local efforts. Immediately, several seniors were on hand to help with folding the campaign’s first mailer. It’s just one small example,

seniors are willing to share. “A lot of our donors and volunteers are folks who are retired.” Seniors both support and are supported by Twin County United Way’s efforts. It helps fund many senior agencies in the valley, including Valley Meals on Wheels, Interlink Volunteers and several programs at the WAID Volunteer Center. In keeping with changes at United Way’s national level, Twin County United Way has expanded its focus to include not just raising money but initiating projects in the community.

September to collect donations for its more than two dozen member agencies. But spearheading projects such as the Lewis-Clark Health Clinic in Lewiston, which serves uninsured and underinsured residents, is a new and growing mission for United Way. The goal, Ramos said, is to identify gaps in service in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley and develop projects to meet those needs. Community impact projects not only serve the obvious purpose of bringing needed services

A chirpy salute to a feathered friend Here’s a story about my kid brother and about our mom’s canary. It was long ago, after World War II shut down, but I remember how much Mom loved that chirpy, chatty, zippy, luminous, lovable little critter. I’m talking about the canary now, you understand. It goes without saying that

Mom didn’t love her bird nearly as dearly as her three sons, but the pair of them, a mom and her pet, had something going, a bond binding enough to heat the cockles of any green-eyed cat in the neighborhood. My kid brother is a singer of note himself, but gets singled out here because he has a birthday coming up this month. You


Ed Hayes know, I never believed I’d be going around telling the world I have an 83-year-old kid brother. I recall when the kid was 6, 16, 21, even 45, and that didn’t seem so staggering. But 83, well, that’s serious. Wait, hold on. Get this. Any day now he’s destined to hit 84.

Indeed, volunteers have a huge role to play in the entire process, Ramos explained, from identifying needs to developing and implementing solutions. And projects that on their face seem limited to a specific audience might well involve participants of different ages and backgrounds. The Children’s Project, which last summer offered a “kindergarten boot camp” to help prepare youngsters for school, was a project of Twin County United Way, Community Action Partnership, the Women’s Leadership Council, local schools and others. The need the boot camp targeted, getting children ready to succeed in school, is one a community with a large population of retired teachers is uniquely positioned to meet, Ramos said.

read to school children, he said, can have a tremendous impact, and United Way and its agencies play important roles in making those volunteer opportunities available. Nationally, United Way has set a goal of reducing the high school dropout rate by half in the communities it serves. Programs such as the Children’s Project are a first step in meeting that objective, Ramos said, and it will take a communitywide effort to see it through. “I think in the end it will be a positive thing for all of us,” he said, of United Way’s focus on community impact projects. “If we come together, we’re not going to influence one aspect, but the whole, broad valley.”

From page 18

Anyway, the war was over, we were a family once more, the sailor, the soldier, the coast guardsman, back home, hugging our folks, thank the Lord; safe and without any battle scars. We three lads were a trifle restless, however, as all of us returning heroes were, I reckon, up and down our free, triumphant borders. Plans for futures were rumbling. Here we come, everybody. Alas, the vagaries of life. “Yes, again,” sadly murmured all the moms and papas who’d fretted, sacrificed and prayed their way through the war, the lucky ones who ultimately stood in doorways with wide, welcome-home arms. Home sweet home, that was the tune, but more transformations, inevitably, lay in store, new families in the works, new careers. Where would they carry us? To a household down the street? Across the country? Wherever, this time forever? That’s when T.J. first winged into the kitchen, and I’m thinking Mom really needed another chum just about then. Lucky bird, swaying, singing, hanging round all day in Mom’s gourmet net. Inevitably T.J. steadily slowed down. Turned mute. Mom set up a housekeeping nest for another canary, T.J. II, in her bedroom, but the juxtaposition of companionship didn’t take. Neither bird peeped. T.J. looked punier by the day. One morning, long, long ago, my mom uncovered T.J.’s cage — for the last time. T.J. was stretched out, warm, but stiff and lifeless. At that moment, a glorious song blared through the house. No, it wasn’t the kid brother. He was off singing on someone’s bandstand. No, it was T.J. II, in his backstage cage, singing his head off, as we kids used to say, generously saluting Mom’s little friend.  Retired Orlando Sentinel staffer Ed Hayes, 85, welcomes your views and suggestions.
