The Lewis County Elections this year have been a nail biter for some of the elected positions. The elections are to be certified on Nov. 28 with the absentee ballots being counted on the Nov. 27. The race for County Clerk is so close that it may mean votes will have to be recounted since they are less than 1/4% of 1% percentage point apart.
Currently, Scott Tinney leads Carla Shannon by 23 votes, he has 7270 and she has 7247. Absentee votes could decide this race.

The Winlock Boys Basketball needs your help this year and the way to help them will be a gift that will last through the entire year. They are looking for business and individual sponsors to assist these young men with the expenses of the basketball season.
Last year the donations helped to provide at no cost to the players themselves, shooting shirts, T-shirts, socks, balls, team dinners and spring/summer and fall tournaments. In their third year at Winlock they are expecting another wonderful participation among high school boys and with that comes more expenses. This is where the community can help.
Recently, Andrew Morton from Winlock, a volunteer with the Fallen Outdoors, had the opportunity to go to Texas to help with the Hurricane Harvey relief. While he was there he had the opportunity to help several people in need and work along side law enforcement and social media to figure out what towns were in need. Many were small towns like Winlock. Many didn't have FEMA or The Red Cross helping so Andrew and his group made it their mission to help.
TOLEDO - Despite monthly cleaning and annual patching, the roofs of Toledo Middle and Toledo High Schools require restoration or replacement. A recent inspection of the high school roof found 20 areas of water intrusion. Where leaks could be identified, they were patched. This kind of patching has been done for years with each patch having a life expectancy of 12-18 months. Staff report clearing drains and keeping debris off the roof on a monthly basis, but there seems to be no keeping up with time. Like all roofs, there is a time to replace. For both schools, that time was a few years ago.
