Bus driver commended for helping rollover victims

Winlock bus driver Heidi Ross-Ghazali was just driving to work the morning of Jan. 18 when she encountered two men brutally injured in an accident on Toledo-Vader Rd.

A pickup belonging to a 49-year-old Winlock man was overturned in the middle of the road and both he and his 16-year-old son had suffered serious head trauma.

The Spirit of the Cowlitz: Their Religion, Part 4
When a person would die in the longhouse, it was the custom to cut a hole in the outer wall of the longhouse adjacent to where the body was lying on its ordinary sleeping platform, and take the body out through that hole. This hole would then be re-boarded up. It was the belief that the spirit of the deceased would attempt to re-enter the longhouse through the opening from which his/her body was taken; therefore, they would not take the body out through the normal doorway, and would re-board the new opening in order to block re- entry. This was done because the departed spirit would desire to return and find a loved one whom they could take with them on their spirit journey. They would become discouraged and depart in peace when they returned and found no opening where they had left the longhouse.
