SOUTH BEND – In Pacific County Superior Court action, cases involving petty theft of a mother’s check, methamphetamine selling, illegal firearm possession, and drug court proceedings were on the docket.

Following are some of Friday afternoon’s more interesting court cases. Another man was recently arrested for child molestation.
Many communities around Pacific County are getting ready for Veterans Day. It is on this day that the greater public takes a collective opportunity to thank the men and women who have served in the defense of the United States.
Once heralded as Armistice Day, the end of WWII brought the modern Veterans Day where towns hold parades and ceremonies in honor of those who are currently serving or who have served as part of the military.
Raymond sewed up its second straight Pacific League championship under third year head coach Rob Clements by dominating arch rival Willapa Valley 27-0 last Thursday night in Menlo. It was Raymond’s fourth shut out on the season.
Toledo is preparing for the annual Lewis County Veterans Day parade and those who wish to march with service members are encouraged to sign up early.
Taking place Nov. 9 at noon on Augustus St., veterans from across the area are invited to attend and participate, with a ceremony scheduled to take place immediately afterward at the Veterans Wall of Honor in Kemp Olson Park.
ALEXANDRIA, Va., — Recently, Volunteers of America convened a panel discussion at the National Press Club to discuss many of the issues facing America’s veterans, particularly traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Also in the discussion was the hopelessness that so many vets face. Demonstrated by the growing suicide rates for veterans (22 per day, on average), veterans are feeling increasingly isolated and abandoned.
After a glorious “Indian Summer” during October, there has been storm activity as November begins.
Interestingly enough, the power went out just after I typed that sentence! Then it’s time to see what can be done by lantern and flash light. It also is a reminder to recharge our “devices” (cell phones, “smartphones”, tablets, laptops, etc.) regularly and to know where the plug-in phone is. (The plug-in phone doesn’t require electricity in order to work and the phone system has battery back-up.)
According to www.daysoftheyear.com, November is Vegan Month. This month is also NaNoWriMo, a challenge to publish aspiring authors to produce a first draft in 30 days. So you may see even less of me this month, if that’s possible.

After very little discussion, the Castle Rock City Council unanimously approved an ordinance Oct. 28 adding recreational marijuana facilities to their approved uses within the C-2 Highway Business District.
Located just east of Exit 48, the district is already zoned for medical marijuana collective gardens and was selected because of its distance from community-oriented facilities, as well as tourist traffic, according to City Planner TJ Keiran.
VADER - The city of Vader is looking to other Washington cities for clues on how to respond to requests to set up recreational marijuana facilities in their jurisdiction.
While some see opportunity, the majority of Vader residents are against having such a facility in their town and worry that establishing a “drug factory” would hurt its image as a family friendly place and could put it at odds with federal drug laws.
It was a tale of mud, sweat and tears at the District 4 Class 1B/2B Cross Country Championships Saturday.

While the Toledo/Winlock players honored seniors and their families on Thursday night, Castle Rock simply waited to take care of business.
The Lady Rockets, under the leadership of Head Coach Brian Ziese, have moved from the lower levels of the Trico League into postseason contenders in a year.
It seemed almost poetic that seniors, something Castle Rock Head Coach Ben Suhrbier said loud and clear he had few of, were what the Rockets needed in a 24-13 season-ending Trico League victory over Toledo on Friday night.
The Rockets opened the game with a big drive right down the field helped by a long, long by Tanner Catlin. To finish the drive, QB Mason Klingberg found Senior Nate Williamson in the right side of the end zone with a five-yard pass.
The Toledo/Winlock Boys Cross Country team qualified for the WIAA State Cross Country Championships to be held next Saturday in Pasco with a third place finish in the District IV Championships held at the Lewis River Golf Course in Woodland on Saturday.
With only four teams to state from District IV, there was some drama. La Center dominated the meet followed by Elma. Strong competition from White Salmon, Rochester and Woodland made the results announcement tense. Just 15 points separated the four teams.
