Evaline joins outcry against Policy Center grading system
Evaline joins outcry against Policy Center grading system

The Evaline School District has come forward to oppose letter grades recently assigned by the Washington Policy Center (WPC) to schools in the state.

Lewis County’s oldest district with just one grade school to its name, Evaline was given an "F" in the report published Feb. 13 with WPC citing Evaline’s failure to meet multiple grading criteria. (It should be clarified WPC is a private lobbying group and not an entity of Washington State.)

Ryderwood News 04.03.13

The weather for Easter weekend was glorious. Not a cloud in the sky, flowers blooming everywhere, the greenest of green fresh-mown grass. Spending more time outdoors, I’ve seen the arrival of some of our favorite nesting birds. Walk around wearing red, and you’ll get buzzed and beeped by the hummers. Meanwhile, the violet-green swallows are actively house-hunting. A "local" says that the official sign of spring is when the juncos leave – for the record, I saw one on Saturday.

Thanks to the members of the Lions Club for making Saturday’s Easter Egg Hunt possible. We know we printed otherwise in the last column, but the volunteers at the club make the egg hunt possible every year, not City Hall (our bad). Organizers said the event was a success, and the bright sunshine that day sure didn’t hurt.

An officer-involved shooting almost occurred near Toledo March 14.

Deputies responding to the 100 block of Smokey Valley Rd., south of town, were told that resident Matthew Pettit was acting erratically, had made threats against the lives of his family, and was possibly armed due to the absence of a .22 caliber pistol from the collection of firearms at the residence.
