    Staff|Apr 4, 2024

    This weekend's Hook the Hawg salmon derby was sponsored by the Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce and the Elochoman Slough Marina. It was a great time for all who attended. Trailers filled the parking lot at the marina as anglers tried their best to hook the biggest salmon. The final winners gathered at River Mile 38 Brewing Company. All participants who landed a fish had their names put into a raffle. Prizes ranged from sweatshirts, tee shirts and hats from the marina to equipment rentals from...

  • Easter eggs, Redmen opens, Hook the hawg

    Kay Chamberlain|Mar 21, 2024

    NICE WEEKEND Well, I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the sunny days. I have to say as I begin this column, it is foggy and I swear those ships tooting their foghorns are about ready to come into my back yard. The sun should be showing up soon. It's hard to get all the yard work done when we only get a few days of decent days in a row, not to mention those projects that require more than a day or two to accomplish. Then again, we are just into the first week of Spring, so we shouldn't be too surprised that the clouds are springing a...

    DOUBLE HOLIDAY MONTH. I always think of March as being St. Patrick’s Day month and April as being Easter month, but that’s not how it is this year. We’ve got St. Patty’s Day on March 17, which is a Sunday this year, but Easter is on the last day of this month, March 31. It’s one of those holidays that does not have a set time, but occurs on the Sunday after the forty days of Lent for those of the Christian faith, so, it’s always changing. There will be special Easter events at the end of this month with the Wahkiakum Fair Foundation...

    COLD AND WET/SNOW. At the beginning of this work week we've had a mixed bag of weather here in West Valley, as we have seen some sun, some rain and even a bit of snow so it's going to be interesting to see if that snow part becomes more pronounced as the week progresses. From the pictures I saw, it was quite white up on Beaver Creek so the snow was extremely close by so I do hope you're careful as you travel around, especially in the higher elevations. The week ahead looks to be quite cold, like in the freezing zone, so be sure to be prepared...

    Diana Zimmrman|Feb 29, 2024

    It’s time to pick your candidate for the coming presidential election. According to Amanda Boehler, the election coordinator for the Wahkiakum County Auditor, the ballots for the presidential primary election were mailed on February 23. "There is a lot of confusion surrounding this election as it only happens once every four years,” Boehler said recently. “It is the only time that a voter must declare a party, Republican or Democrat, and they must choose a candidate from the party that they declare on their envelope. Their party prefe...
