Toledo looking to community for input on VFW building

The Toledo School Board is continuing to discuss options for the future of the former VFW building on Jackson Hwy. after the facility reverted back to the district when VFW Post 3429 disbanded May 31.

A warranty deed for the building had been sold to the VFW in 1947 for $1, granting ownership to the VFW as long as they remained, but District Superintendent Sharon Bower said modern legal options are not as simple, and retaining the facility may place an unnecessary financial burden on the district.

Deputy accused of bribery, extortion to be tried locally

A Pacific County deputy accused of multiple felonies related to bribery and extortion is expected to be tried in Lewis County, with a preliminary appearance scheduled for July 22.

Vance O. Johnson, 44, of Raymond, has been accused of recklessly endangering several young adults allegedly involved in the egging of his personal vehicle on March 28, and later soliciting bribes from the victims and their families. Lewis County Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer said one of the victims is a member of the Pacific County Prosecutor’s Office, presenting a possible conflict of interest, and his office will be hearing and potentially trying the case.
