On Thursday evening at 5:30 p.m., the Vader City Council and Mayor Wilson met to hold their budget workshop, a Public Hearing on the budget and finished with a Vader City Council Meeting. The unusual part is, the citizens were involved in all three meetings.
Mayor Lois Wilson started the workshop with a statement asking citizens to ask questions by waiting to be called on, instead of interrupting. Cities typically do not allow citizens to ask questions during a budget workshop; they are for council members only. A city will usually hold a public hearing later for citizens to ask questions.
During the workshop, it was mentioned the reason for the current deficit is due to the second half of property taxes not being received. These funds are typically received in November. It is not unusual for cities that have limited revenue to run a deficit until the funds are received.
The United Methodist Women or UMW of Chehalis is holding its annual Mint City Market on November 8 and 9 at the Chehalis United Methodist Church located at 16 S. Market Blvd, Chehalis. This year's market is coordinated by Dianne Stefanini, who has been involved in the last five yearly markets. You will find a collection of vendors selling local crafts, art, rustic designs, and more. The vendors this year, as with past, are from all over locally with a few from the church.
All funds raised from the market stay local and are distributed and spent down completely on missions such as Eceap, a free preschool, Safe Family Ministries, The Lewis County Gospel Mission, which this time of year focuses on the winter needs of those in need, and students in need.
On Wednesday, October 23, the Raymond Fire Department responded to a report that there was a fuel leak at the 101 Quick Stop on the corner of Hwy 101 and Heath St. Soon after their arrival, the pumps were stopped, and Heath St. was blocked off to traffic.
"There was someone who stopped by the station and told us that there was a leak of some kind going on," said Raymond Fire Department Chief Todd Strozyk. "We responded over there and did our best to contain the fuel that was present on the ground. We got all the people who were getting gas from the fuel lines out of there safely. We cordoned off the area and then called the Department of Ecology."
MENLO - Pe Ell-Willapa Valley (PWV) was on task with its ball control plan as the offensive line dominated Ocosta in the trenches with the result being another divisional championship for the Titans, who uprooted any thoughts of a Wildcat upset during the 42-7 manhandling before some 500-strong at Crogstad Field in Menlo on Senior Night Friday. The previously unbeaten Wildcats (7-1), who had visions of a division title themselves no doubt left the field realizing they have a ways to go to catch up to the Titans (5-3).
"I really thought we played with a lot of fire," Peterson said. "Everybody was really emotional, it was good to see."
'Good to see' for Titan fans were running backs Max Smith and Kollin Jurek running into and out of wide open spaces while amassing 323 yards and 5 touchdowns between them. Smith, who was wearing a cast on one hand because of broken thumb, thumped, bumped and scooted for 173 yards on 25 touches and 4 TDs, while Jurek sped about for 150 yards on 24 journeys and a 10-yd score. Smith also picked off a pass on defense and ran it back 36 yards, and totalled 209 all-purpose yards.
