Many remember back in the 1960s and 1970s there was a huge push to clean up our roads. You would see several signs that said littering will get you a fine. Unfortunately, we are now seeing more trash on the roads and ditches, but Robin Pedrazzetti is a member of the community who is trying to fix that, picking up trash. It's not a glamorous job, but it keeps our area looking fabulous.
With changes at Toledo City Hall, they have hired a new person who will handle their water and sewer billing. Shelly Allen is the new clerk but she is certainly not new to Toledo. Shelly is part of the Davidson family in Toledo, which is a large family. Being part of a city is not new to the Davidson family, Anne Randt is a Davidson and she was a wonderful member of the Winlock City Council, which runs in the family.
Shelly was asked why she decided on working for the City of Toledo, she stated, "I was looking for a job that I could be happy in and feel part of a team. It is also closer to home and when I was told about this opening, I knew it would be the right choice. I also knew that working in Toledo would be a way to give back to the community that I grew up in." Shelly is definitely a girl from Toledo.
The City of Toledo is losing their clerk, but she won't be far, she is the new treasurer for the City of Napavine. Michelle Whitten has years of knowledge, she has been a life saver for Toledo but also for Winlock and Vader these past few years. When it comes to being a city clerk, there is nothing she can't do and she has always taken the time to explain to anyone who has a question. Michelle will be missed in Toledo.
