No single cause for trooper’s death

Detectives from the Washington State Patrol have determined that a combination of multiple factors led to the death of Trooper Sean O’Connell in a motorcycle collision in Skagit County earlier this year.

O’Connell’s motorcycle collided with a commercial vehicle known as a “box truck” shortly before 6 p.m. on May 31, at the intersection of Fir Island Road and Greenfield St. south of Mt. Vernon.

ABERDEEN – Raymond advanced to the Elite Eight of the Class 2B State Football Championships with a heart-stopping 20-14 triumph over Wahkiakum in a game played with mean winds and steady rains Friday night at Stewart Field in Aberdeen. Alex Sida’s 9-yard TD run proved to be the game-winner with 11 seconds to play. Sida scored all 3 of Raymond’s touchdowns. Sida rambled for 150 yards on just 10 carries.

“The turning point was when we got the wind at our back,” Raymond HS Head Football Coach Rob Clements told the Herald. “You couldn’t throw the ball against that wind. The ball flutters and floats. Both teams had momentum and control when they had the wind at their backs.

“He (Sida) ran hard and didn’t get touched on that first run,” Clements said.

Since the month of November has five weekends this year, there is one more week to prepare for Thanksgiving. That sounds like good news until the calendar reveals one less weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Consider taking advantage of this week and pick up items for the December holidays while out and about. It could be time and money well spent. While the lights are not yet lit, those who truly decorate for Christmas have already started.

In the dining department: Friday night’s Café Dinner will be “All U Can Eat” Pizza, Chicken Wings & Breadsticks. Call Linda at 360-295-0875 to make reservations. There will be no take-outs available for this meal. Meanwhile, call Jan at 360-295-0597 to make reservations for next week’s Nutrition Lunch, which will be Chicken Noodle Soup and Orange Couscous Salad. What is couscous anyway? The easiest way to describe it is “tiny pieces of spaghetti”.

Students of all ages are invited to the Winlock Miller Elementary School on Friday for Science Night.
