The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Need to set the record straight


To The Eagle:

Thank you Cathlamet and Wahkiakum County for a great Bald Eagle Days festival! The Chamber and the community put on a great event. The marina staff did a terrific job - boaters love coming to Cathlamet.

However, we need to set the record straight. Cliff is indeed a river rat. But, as the picture in The Eagle showed, he's the River Rat of Welcome Slough. The East Birnie Slough river rats are a whole different breed.

Despite the caption, the picture in The Eagle last week was of the two of us on the Portland Yacht Club (PYC) float.

As Welcome Slough residents and PYC members, we were thrilled PYC received the Grand Prize trophy. Our float showcased, "Summer Fun" on the river with sailors, buoys, boats, Joe's Fishin Shack and the River Rat of Welcome Slough.

We had a blast and it was great to see so many smiling faces along the parade route.

Thank you all,

Becky Belangy and Cliff Stephens
