A seven-year-old girl has been receiving death threats from another student at Winlock Miller Elementary School and administrators say they have yet to determine who the offender is.
Parent Brandy Peppers told the Winlock School District Board Wednesday night her daughter Kiay began receiving threats "out of the blue" two months ago, despite Kiya’s tendency to keep to herself. The first threat stated, "I will kill you," and subsequent messages have been as violent and increasingly profane.

Increased BSNF traffic will commence for Amtrak Service from Seattle to Portland plus northbound coal cars if and when the shipping port north of Seattle is approved. This will mean an extra 25% rail traffic. At present, modifications to the tracks are under way. Make sure you have plenty of time for train crossings as some are 100-cars plus in length! More than ever, those living within one mile of the tracks should be aware of HAZMAT situations and how to handle them.
Calling all local children for the Easter egg hunt coming up at the Winolequa Park! It’s scheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m. sharp.

The Winlock Community Club will be providing plenty of prizes for each age group, so be sure not to miss it!

A draft proposal to combine the municipal court services of Napavine, Winlock, Toledo and Vader was made available to each city last Wednesday.
The proposal would centralize court services under Winlock, dissolving Napavine Municipal Court and terminating Toledo’s relationship with Lewis County Municipal Court. Vader currently contracts with Winlock for court services, so their arrangements would not change dramatically.

Newton was appointed by a 3-1 margin that night and has previously served as Sewer/Water Commissioner for the community of Skamokawa between 2003 and 2005. Council Member Kevin Flynn said Newton’s experience should help bolster Vader’s position during efforts to re-acquire their water system from Lewis County.
