Local student overcomes past to graduate from Toledo High School

Sometimes a change of scenery can be beneficial, but for Toledo High School Senior Dylan Vaughn, it may have been a life changer.

"He has come so far," said Toledo High School Councilor Joyce Marick. "He moved here from New York. I think that had he stayed in New York in his situation, then he probably would not have graduated from high school."

Vader given new flag to replace emblem lost in vandalism

When reports of teenagers burning an American flag came out of Vader last month, local residents were shocked and dismayed not only at the wanton vandalism but the disregard for our national symbol.

Regional news sources even came to town and spoke with those affected by the burning, which took place May 25 at the Vader City Jail, and they shared how discouraging it was to see young people treat their flag this way.

Ryderwood News 06.11.14

While it’s not officially Summer (that happens on June 21), we’ve had some pretty summery weather. In fact, I don’t think I’ve turned on the heat at all this month! I’m OK as long as the temperatures stay under 80 degrees; after that you’ll hear me whining.

Activities around Town are beginning to heat up, too. The Women’s Club has their monthly luncheon meeting at noon on Wednesday in Pioneer Hall; followed the next day with the Red Hat High Tea on Thursday. This special event will be held at 1 p.m. in Community Hall – all ladies are invited to attend - with or without a red hat! Bring a wrapped “re-giftable” item for the White Elephant Sale and count on fun, fun, fun!

Vader News 06.11.14

First, we would like to offer our best wishes to resident Ross McDowell, who announced his retirement as a sergeant from the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office after serving our community for three decades. McDowell had filled the role of emergency management director while working for the Sheriff’s Office, and said he intends to perform the same jobs in the civilian world out of Mason County. Your community supports and appreciates you, Ross!

Winlock News 06.11.14

This is the time of year when all the high school seniors are graduating and are off to start their lives. As I graduated and left my job at the Winlock Flower Shop, the owners gave me this poem, written by Saxon White Kessinger. I have referred to this poem several times throughout my life; it has always helped me when I get a little full of myself. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Financial advice for new--and old--dads this Father's Day

Each year when Father's Day rolls around, I'm reminded that I wouldn't trade the experience of raising my two kids for the world. But when I think back to how naïve my wife and I once were about the costs of raising children, I can't help wishing we'd been better prepared.

If you're a new dad, or about to become one, you'd better sit down. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a typical middle-income family can expect to spend over $241,000 to raise a newborn child until age 18 - and that doesn't even include prenatal care or college costs.
