Assessor brings in DOR for review

Soldier returns to county for burial



He left White Salmon to serve the country in World War II and returned home on May 18, 2012, nearly 68 years later. Unfortunately for Army Pfc. Gerald W. “Mike” Kight, the return trip came only after his remains were found and identified in The Netherlands. According to the Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO), in September 1944, Kight and the 82nd Division’s 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment were dropped in the vicinity of Nijmegen, The Netherlands, as part of the allied invasion code named “Market Garden.” Kight was manning a machine gun position near the town of Groesbeek, when he was overrun by Ger man Forces. On Sept. 12, 2011, the Royal Netherlands Army’s Recovery and Identification Unit recovered human remains from a wartime foxhole, in a corn field northeast of Groesbeek. Along with the remains were military uniform fragments, and three military identification tags, which bear the name and home address of Kight and his mother. To identify the remains, scientists from the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command used circumstantial evidence and forensic identification tools such as dentalcomparisons. Of the 16 million Americans who served in World War II, more than 400,000 died. At the end of the war, the U.S. government was unable to recover and identify approximately 79,000 Americans. Today, more than 73,000 are unaccounted for from the conflict. In honor of the war hero’s return, both the cities of Bingen and White Salmon declared May 18, 2012, as “Gerald W. “Mike” Kight Day. In addition, Pfc. Kight was escorted home by Patriot Guard Riders, who not only saw that he got home safely but was also buried safely. The Patriot Guard Riders

Klickitat gets grant to renovate community center building REBECCA GOURLEY REPORTER

Klickitat County was awarded a $1 million Community Development Block Grant through the state of Washington last week to renovate and remodel the community center building in the town of Klickitat.

“We are really happy about this,” said Jerry Lynch, Klickitat School District Superintendent. The grant recipient is Klickitat County, and the sub-recipient will be the Klickitat School District. The community center has been functioning as such since the fall of 2007,

and Lynch says that the entire community has pulled together because they want to see it become more utilized. “This project has really engaged the entire community,” said Lynch. Some of the plans include adding a kitchen facility to provide support for

the local food bank and to help with senior meals, says Lynch. The town of Klickitat was one of 15 towns and cities in Washington to receive a chunk of the $11 million in federal grants awarded to rural Washington community projects.

Holiday Tractor Pull competition draws tractors and spectators ANDREW CHRISTIANSEN REPORTER

The Hanging Rock Tractor Pull course couldn’t stop Glen Carrigan from making a pair of full pulls on both Saturday and Sunday events this weekend at the Goldendale Guys and Gals Tractor Club’s annual event. Carrigan won the 4,500 and 5,000 pound divisions on both days running the limit of the 300-foot course with his 1937 John Deere tractor. There were four more full pulls on day one with Joe Scott going the distance on his 1947 Farmall M and Terry Schmid and Connor Campbell sharing the honors in the 6000 pound division on a 1954 Oliver. In the miscellaneous class, Danny Weese drove his 1935 Caterpillar the distance and Jim Leahy had a full pull on his 1957 John Deere 720. There was a good group of young pullers driving lawn tractors this year. Jake Randall won both days with pulls of 164 on day two and 167 on day one, just edging Jasper Randall who had a 164 foot pull in the diesel division.

MAKING THEIR MOVES: Eli Phelps (top) and Carol Bryant (bottom front) at the Hanging Rock Tractor Pull this weekend.

Darlene Johnson came into office as the new Klickitat County Assessor on a platform of promised changes. Changes in county assessment processes have been several and occasionally sweeping, and the process has not always sat well with those affected. Johnson says her concern for doing her job properly has led her to be proactive in inviting the Washington State Department of Revenue (DOR) to conduct a review of her office. The DOR did just that and issued its report earlier this month. “The Department has completed its review,” the report stated in its executive summary, “and grouped the results into two categories. The first category, Requirements, is of the greatest urgency for effective administration by the Assessor and the county le gislative authority. A change is required to adhere to the law.” The report listed six points of procedure that the DOR considered to fall into this Requirements section. “The second category, Recommendations,” the report continued, “requires the attention of the Assessor and the county legislative authority. We note recommendations as being in the best interest of all parties. We believe improvements in these areas will improve service to the public.” The report cited 13 such recommendations. Johnson says her motivation in asking the DOR to conduct its review was to allay the fears of some county elected officials. “I’ll be honest with you,” she says. “Some of the other elected officials in the building had some problems with some of the changes that were being made. It’s never easy when changes are being made. So to alleviate their fears and also to make sure I’m doing the right thing, I asked them [the DOR] to come in and say, ‘Hey, am I doing what I’m supposed to be doing?’” The review process was lengthy and involved. Beginning in September, the DOR sent out seven people, each re-

FRIENDLY LOST DOG: Luna giving a friendly greeting to a complete stranger on Main Street in Goldendale.

Dog tied to stop sign is identified REBECCA GOURLEY REPORTER

On Sunday, the Klickitat County Sheriff ’s Office got a report of a dog tied to a road sign north of Goldendale. Deputy Randy Wells was called out to the scene. He reported that the dog, a female red pit bull, was tied with a rope to a private drive road sign at Too Long Lane, off Pipeline Road. Because Klickitat County does not have an animal control officer, Lisa Mabrey of Dogs of the Gorge took the dog to her home while they searched for the owner. Wells asked people at the Rock Crawl event on Orchard Heights if they had seen the dog with anyone, and no one had. “[She is a] really, really nice dog,” said Wells. She was wearing a choke collar and had no tags on her. Tuesday mor ning, Mabrey took the dog to Mid

Columbia Veterinary Clinic and discovered she had a microchip. The microchip was registered to a person with an address in Walla Walla. The four-year-old dog’s name is Luna. When she was called by that name, she got very excited, says Mabrey. Blue Mountain Humane Society was the original entity that adopted Luna to her home. Mabrey says that they will take Luna back, “No problem.” “This shows how important microchipping is,” stated Mabrey. “It’s a happy ending.” So how did Luna get here? Mabrey believes that either the owner was in town for the Rock Crawl event, or perhaps the dog was given away and the microchip information was not updated. Updates on this story will occur on The Sentinel website,

viewing different aspects of the assessor’s office and its processes. The report’s Requirements section in part reads: “The Assessor is required to submit accurate, complete, timely reports and certifications to the Department and other County officials. “The Assessor is required to appraise property at 100 percent of its true and fair market value, according to its highest and best use and assessed on the same basis unless specifically provided otherwise by law. The Assessor should document the valuation methodology used to determine accurate property values. “a. Uniformity is required. “b. Consider effect of value change on surrounding parcels. “c. Use correct methodology for value corrections. “d. Prepare records explaining errors and corrections. “The Assessor is required to provide information about the Property Tax Exemption Program for Senior Citizens and Disabled Persons by providing notice of the qualifications, the process for applying, and the penalties for not reporting a change in status. “The Assessor is required to notify applicants of their approval or denial and the procedure for appealing the Assessor’s decision. “The Assessor is required to freeze the market value on approved senior or disabled exemption applications. The frozen value should include only land and improvements eligible for exemption.” The report’s Recommendations section cites 13 points ranging from developing desk reference manuals in order to minimize the loss of institutional knowledge to seeing that staff maintains an adequate level of knowledge about various property tax programs administered by the assessor. The entire report can be seen at: Klickitat%20Co%202011%20 PT%20Admin%20REPORT%2005-17-2012.pdf. The assessor’s web site also has a link to a statement by Johnson that says her office has already implemented or is in the process of implementing all of the DOR’s requirements and recommendations. “I’ve done that from the very beginning,” Johnson says. “I’ve always brought the Department of Revenue in whenever there was a

Reisenauer says. “That’s significant. So we have a lot better data to do our comparison.” Larger neighborhoods mean more efficient procedure, Reisenauer confirms. “And more equalization,” she added. Changing the codes parcel by parcel was required because, Reisenauer says, they can’t be done cumulatively en mass with the system they have. “I have a statistics background, and one of the things that really bothered me was the small sample sizes that they were using to change values,” Johnson says. “I want as big a sample size as I can get. We stretch our timeline as wide as we can so that we can have as many sales, so that we can be assured that we’re trying to set as close to the market as possible. But I will tell you you’re probably going to get calls again because as we’re recoding we’re finding a few parcels in there that probably fell through the cracks, and now they’re going to be revalued just like their neighbors, so change causes phone calls. We’re going to try to make everything as transparent as possible.” Letters about the assessment changes are scheduled to go out on June 13, and Johnson says she wants people to know they should call immediately if they discover “some crazy change in the value of their property. As we change these neighborhoods,” she says, “sometimes a coding that worked in the neighborhood that they were in might have characteristics there that we didn’t capture. Call us so that we can know. And we now are going to make sure any time we make a change to one person, if one person calls, we’re going to make sure all of the neighbors that are similar, that have that similar characteristic, have that same change. So they should call because not only could it help them but it could also help their neighbors.” In the next part of this story next week, Assessor Johnson talks about the new assessment process for farmlands in Klickitat County.

LOOKING BACK May 30, 2012 25 Years Ago – May 28, 1987 • From Fish Hatchery Road, the newly built home standing tall in the midst of an alfalfa field looks as if the architect or builders forgot a few important features, the windows. Brian and Lynn Wanless’ modern residence is hardly without windows, however, an entire wall of panes is positioned on the south exposure of the building to gather maximum energy from the sun’s rays. The north end of the home has few windows to prevent heat loss. 50 Years Ago – May 24, 1962 • Sale of the Ben F. Bush Co. variety store in Goldendale to A.O. Niemi, manager of the J.C. Penney Co. store here, was confirmed this week. Niemi said that the purchase was made because he felt it offered an opportunity for him to better his personal welfare and that of his family. “We like Goldendale much,” he said “and I have a lot of confidence in its future.” 75 Years Ago – June 3, 1937 • Fred Oltmanns, Goldendale painting and decorating contractor, suffered a painful injury to one of his fingers this week when he struck a needle with the member as he was cleaning a wall for repainting. The sharp instrument was broken and a portion remained in the flesh. His physician removed the steel and bandaged the wound, but the extent of the injury would not allow him to work this week.

Why do the trees have to go? To the Editor: Please explain why cutting the trees and widening Burgen is something that needs to be done. I have never had a problem with parking at the library any time I have gone. It is an oasis in the summer and just plain pretty the rest of the time. Don’t cut the trees; we all lose something special. I think that there are other streets that could benefit from a little TLC . I would be glad to point out the ones that are really shabby and potholed and poorly marked. That project would keep the street crews busy for a long time. We don’t need wider or new streets for faster traffic. Why not concentrate on developing and promoting new businesses for town growth? Isn’t that what the town needs? I think so. It’s also just plain fun to have a one way street that is one block long. Let’s be real for a change and do what is best for the town.

We need real heroes today To the Editor: My daughter and her handi-


capped son went to the movies in The Dalles a couple of weeksw ago. While trying to get her son out of his wheelchair and into a seat, her son’s foot got stuck under the chair, and he passed out. From the sound of it, my daughter had quite a struggle lifting her 16-year-old off the floor and into a seat. The lights had not been turned off yet, so this couldn’t possibly have gone unnoticed by others in the theater. It is really discouraging to think that our society has become so selfcentered that the adults don’t even step in to help when they see a need. I realize not everyone is comfortable dealing with special needs, but it is still disconcerting to think that not one single person offered help or even asked if my grandson was OK. I hope that Iron Man and Captain America aren’t the only heroes the children see. They need real examples of human kindness and compassion, especially in today’s world.

Don’t solve one problem by creating another To the Editor: Have you noticed one of the prettiest streets in Goldendale is the first block of W. Burgen? Now I un-

derstand why “they” want to cut down the beautiful trees in front of the library. Something about water and sewer lines. Really? The only answer is to destroy those magnificent trees? Why doesn’t this surprise me and a lot of other people? In order to correct one problem, create another. Does anyone ever stop to ask if there isn’t another way to solve a problem than destroy nature? Remember the beautiful trees on Court Street? Kind of naked now, but we do have sidewalks and better streets. At least that’s some improvement. We also spent something like $60,000 to have a group of brainiacs come to town and tell us what was wrong when there have been hundreds of letters written to this very paper about the problems. Yet because we don’t have degrees in brainiacracy, no one listens. Where? West Darland Street, 417 W. Broadway, a couple of places on S. Columbus, and look at the old care center. It’s empty. It could have been used for something like maybe the homeless. If not, tear it down and rebuild. But I digress. The library block of W. Burgen is truly small-town USA. It’s the way all small towns want to look. So please. Before you start destroying, think of another way to save our trees and the beauty they bring to our town.

LETTERS POLICY: An important function of a community newspaper is to provide residents with a forum to express a variety of opinions and viewpoints. With this in mind, The Goldendale Sentinel attempts to publish as many letters to the editor as possible. Letters to the editor should be original and comment on an issue. A general length limit for letters is about 300 words. Unsigned or anonymous letters, letters with fictitious signatures, or copies of letters to public officials are not accepted. The Sentinel also limits letters on a particular subject when we feel it has been thoroughly aired, to the point of becoming repetitive. Check your facts when making claims; any “facts” cited that are clearly questionable will not be printed. Letters or comments of attack, as opposed to criticism, will not be published. The Sentinel also reserves the right to edit or omit a letter if it contains potentially libelous material, an attack on an individual, rants unreasonably, or is generally in bad taste. Writers must include name, city of residence, and phone number for verification purposes.

Reports from Cambodia: The Ogden/Reimche-Vu medical mission Dr. James Ogden and Dr. David Reimche-Vu are on a joint medical mission in Cambodia. Below, Ogden shares news of the journey. May 26 We arrived, safely, on time, with all of our luggage. The flights were all on time and the connections were both easy with ample time to get where we needed to be. It was about the best flight that I can remember on one of these trips. Customs when entering Cambodia was easy. The hotel where we are staying in Siem Reap is small but very nice with a swimming pool and good breakfast buffet. Yesterday, we spent the day at the temples nearby and had a really good guide who explained things very well. He is a college student majoring in English literature, so his English was very good. We made the 20-minute drive from the hotel to the temples in tuk tuks [a kind of motorized rickshaw]. Today we traveled by tuk tuk to a project that was started and still run by Tim and Wendy Maddocks, a Seventh Day Adventist couple from Australia. They have an orphanage, school, and training center for church leaders. We went to their services this morning and then got a tour of the 42 acre property before joining them for lunch. Two young ladies from the Mid Columbia area are volunteering there. One is from Hood River and the other from White Salmon—who would have guessed that we would meet people from that close to home so far from home? Tomorrow we are to leave for Battambang, which is a three-hour ride, and then we will set up the clinic in the building where we are to work so that it will be ready to go on Monday morning. John and David tried out the portable dental air compressor and suction (modified shop vac) today, and it all seems to work well. May 28 Yesterday, we left Siem Reap and drove to Battambang in a huge bus that was rented for our use. The drive was about three hours total and the place where we are having our clinics here was on the way. It is a church with an orphanage attached. The pastor is 33 years old and with his wife and a few other helpers, they take care of 32 children ranging from about age five to early 20s. The church building is perfect for what we are doing. It is large enough that our entire operation can be done indoors. It is now the rainy season here, so that is more important than usual. After we got everything set up yesterday afternoon for today’s opening day of clinic, they had a church service with the orphanage children and a few others in attendance. They must do a lot of singing with the kids, because they sang several songs for us, and even the little ones were able to keep on

PULL from Page 1 Connor Campbell won the gas division on day two with top pulls of 154 feet on a Sears Gt18 and 149 feet on a John Deere 235.Eli Phelps, Ayden Phelps, Zowie Oliver, Zachery Oliver and Brad Payne also made runs. The top adult in the lawn tractor class for both days was Fred Suhr. There was a modified entry this year, driven by Brian Fargher, of Centerville. Fargher’s home-made rig was powered by a 275 hp Chevy engine. Mason Smith drove the modified 212 feet to win the first run on day one. On day two Fargher drove 266 feet for the win. Also competing in the division was site host, Joe Sellers in his 1971 Jeep. Other class winners: 3000 pound class – Ted Simkus day one, Fred Suhr day two on second run for a three-way tie breaker against Larry Payne and Simkus; 3500 pound classSuhr won both days; 4000 pound class – Christine Lynch won day one, Jerry Engman won day two; 5500 pound class – Joe Scott day one. This was the 10th year for the event. The club is a division of the Goldendale Motorsports Association.

the pitch. The pastor asked the team members to take part, so David and Micah Reimche-Vu sang a duet and Nathan Reimche-Vu played a solo on an electric keyboard. I accompanied Penny Dyche on the keyboard as she sang her rendition of Amazing Grace and I read the account of Jesus’ feeding of the 5,000 in John 6. I emphasized the point that the boy shared his lunch before the miracle was performed to remind the kids that God uses them for his work as much as he uses adults. The Reimche-Vu kids have been a delight to have along and are helpful to anyone who needs them. This mor ning on the hour’s ride from the hotel to the clinic site, the team T shirts were passed out. Nich and Kosal designed them and they are really special. On the front is a big happy face wearing glasses and underneath it says “You can see” and “I can smile.” On the back is says “Dr. Reimche-Vu and Dr. Ogden cooperation.” Below that there is a picture of Cambodia and Viet Nam with a large cross between the maps. Our first day of clinic was exceptionally smooth. The first day of a project is usually a zoo, but it was not like that today. All of Dr. David's newly designed homemade

dental equipment worked as planned. He was assisted by Dr. Nora, one of the best known dentists in Battambang, and Dr. Sarou from Battambang Optical Clinic. Two of his assistants worked with me as did a girl named Kim, from guess where?—Seattle. She is volunteering at BOC with Dr. Sarou and is planning to start optometry school this fall at Southern California College of Optometry. The dentists saw about 50 patients, mostly for extractions, and we saw 58. There were about 20 referrals for cataract surgery, and Dr. Sarou’s clinic will take them at very little or no charge. We sent about nine patients there for surgery last year and by what I have heard, they are doing well. We have three more days of clinic in the same place and then we are to travel to Viet Nam. Kosal will be with us tomorrow and Wednesday and then he has to go back to classes at the medical school in Phnom Penh. He is trying to decide if he wants to pursue a specialty after he graduates from medical school in three years. Some specialty residencies are available here, but many are not offered in Cambodia and require leaving the country. Until next time, Jim Ogden

S PORTS Nic Venema ties vault record and Bickleton wins county gold medal count at State track and field meet ANDREW CHRISTIANSEN REPORTER

It was a golden State track and field meet for one Klickitat County family, as Nic and Jamie Venema were the only first place winners from the county at this year’s State meet. Nic took first in the 110 meter hurdles and pole vault, while Jamie won her gold in the pole vault. Six of the class 1B athletes from Klickitat County set new personal records (PR) at this year’s meet. Both of Nic Venema’s wins were PRs and his 12-feet, 9-inch pole vault tied the meet record and Bickleton school record. Venema came from behind to win the 110 meter hurdles. He caught the leading runners with three hurdles left and with determination in his eyes, he surged ahead and won the race by almost a half second in 16.14 seconds. The pole vault was also a battle with teammate Peter Clinton. The Greater Columbia Gorge League vaulters who made it to State were Venema and Clinton plus Justin Roberts, of Bickleton and Greg Dechand, of TLG. They were joined by a pair of

Pomeroy vaulters who were also in the 10-foot plus club going into the meet. Roberts dropped out in seventh place after clearing 10-feet, as did Jacob Moore, of Pomeroy. Dechand and Jacob Westburg, of Valley Christian each matched their PRs at 10-6, but could go no further, finishing fifth and fourth, respectively. Jon Atchley, who had a 12-6 PR at Pomeroy, couldn’t go beyond 12 feet, leaving the battle to the two Bickleton boys who each had 12-6 PRs. Clinton cleared 12 feet and 12-6 easily while Venema needed a couple of jumps to keep pace. After a huddle, it was decided to attempt 12-9, which is the State record and Bickleton school record set by Patrick Maeder in 2009. Kristian Rubesh, of TLG also cleared the mark at the 2008 State meet. Clinton was unable to clear the height, but Venema got it done, putting his name in the books for State and school records. Three more attempts failed at 13-feet. Clinton set a new PR, fighting off a leg injury to finish fifth in the 400 meters in 55.21. Another Pirate,


WHO WON?: It was hard to tell from the faces after the 800 meter race, but Jamie Cummins, third from left, of Lopez Island, might be expressing amazement as she knocked 5-seconds off her PR to edge Val Vogt, of TLG, second from right, for the win. Caitlin Scott, above left, finished sixth. Seton Catholic’s Lucy Defilippis, second from left, was fourth.


MEDALIST: Klickitat’s Lara Parsons placed third in the javelin.

Mitchell Powers set a PR in the triple jump at 37-3.25 for eighth place. Alex King got a late start running this year, but he was in his prime at State. The TLG junior had PR races in the 800 and 1600 meters, finishing third in both at 2:05.28 and 4:49.05, respectively. His teammate, Amy Underwood tied her PR in the pole vault at 7-6. Underwood finished third behind Jamie Venema, who had a busy afternoon. Venema was seventh in the long jump on Friday, but had the pole vault, triple jump and 200 meters all at 3 p.m. on Saturday. By passing at the early heights of the pole vault, Venema was able to run the 200 meters for a seventh place finish in 28.48, then turn her concentration on the jumps. She put down a 328 triple jump, good enough for third place, then finished up the pole vault. Venema admitted that her energy level was down all day, and it began to show in the pole vault. With a PR of 9feet, the best the junior could do was 8-feet, which was plenty enough for the gold medal. There were big expectations on Valerie Vogt, of TLG, defending champion in the 800 and 1600 meter races. Vogt ran her steady, fast pace, but this time there were kickers lingering close enough to run her down and pass her. Vogt finished second for the silver medal in both races, but ran a season best time of 2:25.99 in the 800, just .27 seconds off her PR. Her first race of the meet was a rematch of last year’s top two runners in the 3200 meters and again, Vogt finished second to Lucy Defilippis, of Seton Catholic. Vogt, who lost by 3.5 seconds last year was off the pace with two laps left this year. Her 12:26.06 time was more than 23 seconds behind Defilippis this year. Three silvers and fourth place in the 4x400 meter relay still amounted to a great day for Vogt. There were also big expectations placed on Klickitat’s Cole Walters in the discus and javelin, where he dominated at most of this year’s meets. Walters finished second in both events, throwing 122-8 in the discus and 158 feet in the javelin, both on windy fields. Walters rounded out his senior year with fifth place in the shot put at 40-5. Other good performances this year, setting season’s best marks were J.D. Yarnell, sixth in the javelin at 142-11


FOR THE RECORD: Nic Venema clears 12-feet, 9-inches to tie the record at the State 1B track championship meet. Venema battled Bickleton teammate Peter Clinton in the event, both matching their previous best vaults of 12-6. Venema won the event with this vault and tied Patrick Maeder for the State and school record. TLG’s Kristian Rubesh also co-owns the record. and the TLG relay teams for the girls’ 4x100 (Underwood, Maggie Baker, Krista Clark, Marie Weber) and 4x200 meters (Underwood, Baker, Caitlin Scott, Lindsey Scott), and boys’ 4x400 meters (Luke Clark, Dechand, King, Devin Van Laar). Others who finished with top four podium places were Caitlin Scott, of TLG, fourth in the 1600 meters in 5:53.69; Lindsay Brown, of Bickleton, third in 300 meter hurdles in 51.01; Lara Parsons, of Klickitat, third in javelin at 105-3. Rounding out the finishes for Bickleton were: Clinton, ninth in 800 meters; Joey Cardenas, eighth in 3200 meters; Joshua Cummings, ninth in 3200 meters; Taylor Brown, sixth in 110 hurdles, seventh in 300 meter hurdles and eighth in shot put; Lindsay Brown, fifth in 100 meter hurdles and 10th in 100 meters; Powers, eighth in high jump; Sydnie O’Banion, eighth in triple jump; TLG: Krista Clark, seventh in 400 meters; Caitlin Scott, sixth in 800 meters; Van Laar, eighth in 1600 meters; Weber, sixth in 3200 meters; Yarnell, sixth in discus; Klickitat: Sarah Ingebo, seventh in discus; Parsons, eighth in long jump; Lyle-Wishram: Kyle Radke, 10th in 100 meters, seventh in 200 meters; Chance Carpenter, eighth in 400 meters; Kirstin Hylton, fifth in dis-

Wanderscheid breezes through field for golf championship ANDREW CHRISTIANSEN REPORTER

Bree Wanderscheid won her first high school golf State championship, last week at Dupont. Wanderscheid is such a talented golfer that it came as no surprise to most people that she won…she was expected to win. Wanderscheid plays at such a high level, always right around par, that players and non-players know the Goldendale golfer is the person to beat. She was runner-up at last year’s tournament, which just added to the expectations this year. It’s a lot of pressure to put on the sophomore and she could feel it. Wanderscheid says she felt the pressure and didn’t want to let anyone down. In the end, she just put it out of her mind when she began playing, which is one of the reasons she is a winner. She has great focus on the course and it translates into consistency. Goldendale sent four boys and three girls to State this year. Mitch Anderson shot an 88 in round one, Joel Gerchak shot a 95 and Riley Ross shot a 93. All three missed the cut after day one. Andrew Wall was in at 83 in 24th place, which earned him the right to play another 18 holes on day two. Joining Wanderscheid in the girls’ tournament were Sawyer Ross, who shot 105 and Tessa Enwards who shot 119. They too missed the cut. This year’s opening round had Wan-

derscheid paired up with Alexis Keating, a senior from Elma High School. Keating tied Wanderscheid for second in last year’s State tournament which was also played on the Dupont course. Both girls shot 2-over-par 74 on the first round, tied for the lead. The girls went at it on the second day, fighting rainy and windy conditions. Wanderscheid says she never struggled with her game through the two days, but the mental part was a challenge because, “I had to do a lot of math,” said Wanderscheid.” It took a lot of calculations to decide which clubs to use. “The wind was 20 mph straight at us at times and I needed to figure the loft I needed to make a 110 yard shot.” Keating never got more than a stroke ahead and by the time the girls were heading down the home stretch, Wanderscheid had a four stroke lead. She says she knew what to expect with people around the final green, having had the experience from last year. “I wasn’t nervous because they were my teammates.” [surrounding the final green]. Wanderscheid’s second round score was par 72. She had one double bogey for the tournament, five bogies, five birdies and the rest of the holes were par. Keating finished with a 76. It is hard to identify where Wanderscheid needs to improve her game, but she says “the short game, always the short game…chipping and putting.” She also hopes to put more length on her drives. Wanderscheid was about 10 yards

behind Keating off the tee. She currently drives the ball 230 to 240 yards and says hitting farther will help her game. Less than a week after the tournament Wanderscheid was already back on the road for a WJGA tournament near Bellingham. It’s a long way out, but it is hard to imagine anyone but Bree Wanderscheid already being favored to repeat and then…well maybe we should wait.


THE CHAMP: Bree Wanderscheid stands in front of her banner at Dupont.

cus and eighth in shot put. The Lyle-Wishram boys competed in the 4x100 relay (sixth place) with Radke, Carpenter, Austin Pickett and Jacob Ziegler, and the 4x400 relay (seventh place) with Radke, Car penter, Ziegler and Nick Wolf. Bickleton boys were fifth in the 4x100 with Brown, Clinton, Venema and

Roberts. Bickleton’s girls competed in all three relays, finishing in eighth place in both the 4x100 with O’Banion, Annie Lindsley, Haley Goodnight and Yee Zhu and 4x400 relay with O’Banion, Zhu, Goodnight and Kelsey Spalding, and sixth place in the 4x200 relay with Goodnight, O’Banion, Lindsley and Zhu.


DETERMINATION: Brady Conway put his leg injury behind him to run a PR in the 110 meter hurdles, qualifying him for the finals.

Wolves save their best for State meet They didn’t have a large contingent of athletes at the State track and field meet, last weekend, but Goldendale’s team came prepared, setting seven personal records (PR) out of 13 events. One of the surprises for the Timberwolves was Brady Conway, who a week earlier had to be carried from the track after a hamstring injury during the 300 meter hurdles at Districts. Conway, a senior was determined to make an appearance at the State meet during his final year, having qualified in the 110 meter hurdles and long jump before the injury. He did more than just show up, he was seventh in his heat and seventh in the finals with a tightly taped leg. In fact, Conway’s times were both sub-16 seconds and he set a PR in the preliminary with a wind assisted 15.56 second run. Conway was one of three Timberwolves with podium finishes (top eight). Braydon Ross led the way with a pair of sixth place finishes in the shot put and discus. His throw of 48 feet, 2.25 inches in the shot put crushed his

PR by more than 14 inches. The third Timberwolf with a podium finish was Isaac Messenger who was really feeling it in the triple jump. Messenger’s PR 44 feet onehalf inch jump was good enough for fourth place. Also putting up a PR was Kenner Milliren who jumped 10 feet in the pole vault, Briley Cameron who set a pair of PRs in the 100 meters (11.26) and 200 meters (23.35), and Devon Casey who had a great first year in track as a senior, running a 2:06.25 800 meters for 11th place. Other results for Goldendale were Kylie Montgomery, 12th in the shot put at 33-4, Messenger, 10th in the long jump at 19-1.75, and Conway making a placement jump in the long jump at 9-6 before retiring for the day. The boys’ 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams didn’t fare well, finishing 12th and 15th, respectively, although the 4x100 time of 44.9 was a season’s best. Running in the relays were Messenger, Milliren, Cameron and Patrick Golding in the 4x100 and Golding, Cameron, Milliren and Casey in the 4x400.

Bighorn medals at State tennis Keith Bighorn won his second medal at the State tennis tournament in Yakima, last week. The Goldenadale senior cruised through Friday matches against Anthony Verhasselt, of Tonasket and Michael Chin of Seattle Academy to make it to Saturday’s semi-finals. Bighorn defeated Verhasselt 6-2, 6-1 and toughed out a three-set 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 win over Chin. Coach Carla Wilkins credited Bighorn for playing a “very patient, smart” match against Chin. Trym Torvund, of Overlake defeated Bighorn in a pair of 6-1 sets in the semis and Bayard Blair, of University Prep took the match for third and sixth places 6-4, 6-2. Bighorn won the fifth place medal in 2011.

Late rally by Curlew ends Klickitat’s State run Curlew took advantage of sixth inning errors to put the second round State 1B softball game out of reach of Klickitat, ending the Vandals’ first appearance at State since 2002. Curlew scored 12 runs in the fifth and sixth innings for a 20-13 victory. The Vandals showed their nerves in the first inning of their opening round game at the State tournament, giving up a home run to the first batter from Wishkah Valley and falling behind 3-0. After that, the game settled into a pitching duel with Valley’s Teagan Louthan striking out 13 Vandals and Klickitat’s Chelci Curtis sitting down 10 batters with strike outs. The Vandals were out-scored 2-1 over the final six innings and lost 5-1, setting up the game against Curlew. Game two was much different with Curlew and Klickitat combining for 25

hits. They also had a whopping 17 errors in a wild game. Klickitat led 5-4 after the first inning and were up 7-6 after four. Curlew came up with five runs in the top of the fifth, but Klickitat answered with three of their own. The sixth started out okay with an out, but the next four batters reached on Klickitat errors. Curlew followed with a pair of singles and a home run to seal the Vandals’ fate and end their State run. Eighth grader, Juliana Quinton went 44 in the final game, driving in two runs. Curtis pitched the distance and stroked another double in the sixth inning to drive in a run. KyAnn Kessinger was 2-4 and Cassie Clack was 1-2 and received the sportsmanship medal for the game. The Vandals lose just one player, Grace Quinton to graduation, leaving an experience group hopeful of a return to State in 2013.
