Fundraiser for Gayle Holmes

Fundraiser for Gayle Holmes

On Saturday, April 27, there will be a fundraiser at Donna's Place for Gayle Holmes. Gayle, a long time resident of Toledo, has been diagnosed with stage 4 Ovarian cancer. There will be a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and live music by Darken Side, Gayle and Terry's son.

Gayle works at the dentist office in Winlock, and was diagnosed in January of 2019. She has continued to work during this time which is never easy to do. Gayle is married to Terry Holmes, who retired this past year from teaching. The Holmes family has been active in the community for many years and all who know them love them for their dedication.

Donna Wallace, owner of Donna's Place stated, "This is a fundraiser that is near and dear to everyone who knows the Holmes family. The community has the opportunity to give back to the Holmes family after years of dedication to the kids in the community."

Winlock City Council fails to deliberate

During the past, Winlock City Council meetings have had zero deliberations on important issues before them as required by the Open Public Meeting Act. At the last City Council meeting on April 8, 2019, there were zero deliberations on any agenda items prompting the Town Crier to investigate to see how often this is occuring. During the investigation, the Town Crier uncovered over 40 instances (and counting) where the City Council had failed to deliberate. These are clear violations of the Open Public Meeting Act.

The Open Public Meeting Act (OPMA) is an act which promotes open government and transparency by requiring city council to openly discuss important issues before them. Instead, the Winlock City Council has no comment and motions are made immediately without any discussion. If the majority fails to deliberate, it is a violation of the Open Public Meeting Act.
