Toledo market offering produce consignment

The Toledo Farmer’s Market is looking for local gardeners who would like to sell their produce on consignment without the need for a booth.

Simply bring your fresh fruits and vegetables to the corner of Cowlitz St. and Ramsey Way Thursdays from 2 to 7 p.m. and let market volunteers do the rest.

By SENATOR PATTY MURRAY

Garibay tries foot in international soccer
Garibay tries foot in international soccer

It is no secret Adair Garibay plays a lot of soccer. He has an association with both the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timber Organizations and he plays on a variety of youth teams all over the northwest, but a recent trip to play for the U15 Puebla team in Mexico really made him think about his position in the game of soccer.

Garibay was the most valuable player on the Toledo/Winlock High School soccer team this last spring as a Freshman, but he was able to draw some pretty dynamic comparisons to soccer in Mexico versus the game here in the local area with a trip to play in a competition in Mexico City.

Scammers targeting grandparents locally

A series of phone scams targeting seniors in the area have been reported and residents are cautioned to be very wary of any calls asking for a transfer of money.

As recently as Monday, potential victims in the Vader area have been called by hoaxers stating a family member (usually a grandchild) has been traveling internationally (Canada, Mexico, or another plausible country for a young person to be visiting) and have found themselves in trouble. It could be a car crash, it could be they are in jail, but the target of the scam is told they can help their grandchild if they wire money (most commonly around a thousand dollars) for bail/travel expenses/medical fees and the like.

OLYMPIA – With fire danger continuing to increase across Washington, officials from four state agencies today urged residents to recognize that even seemingly low-risk activities, such as parking on a grassy field or using motorized yard tools, can spark a wildfire.

Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark has banned fires on all lands protected by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR), including wildlife areas and other facilities managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).

Chen’s hits the spot when it comes to local Chinese food
Chen’s hits the spot when it comes to local Chinese food

I’ve spent a good deal of time keeping an eye out for a really good Chinese restaurant since moving to the Southwest Washington area a few years ago—a place where I’d love to become a regular and take my friends and family.

My search took me to Castle Rock where one can find Chen’s Chinese Restaurant, right in the middle of town, and I feel like I don’t need to keep looking anymore.
