2--SEPTEMBERll, 2013 f |I I GOLDENDALE, WASHINGTON Active shooter exercise to proceed DALLAS SMITH REPORTER The Klickitat County Emergency Management has a couple of projects that have made progress. The new Emergency Services building is almost ready to be put to good use helping the citizens of Klickitat County And an active shooter drill scheduled for Sept. 26 has made some headway The drill is proceed- ing despite concerns from many who feel it's too much of a safety hazard. The new Emergency Ser- vices building should be fm- ished with construction be- tween mid-September and the end of September, according to Emergency Management Coordinator Ed Powell. Once construction is finished, the building will need to be outfit- ted with all of the necessary equipment. "We are actively getting equipment for the building," Powell asserts. The project is right on schedule, and when asked if there would be a grand opening, Powell re- sponds with a hearty, "Of course!" The drill to simulate an ac- tive shooter on Main Street in Goldendale was set up by Powell, who says its primary objective is to heighten awareness in Goldendale businesses of the dangers of an active shooter situation. He is diligently working to prepare for the drill, but for- mal approval from the City of Goldendale came reluctantly and only on condition that no gun of any kind is used. In- stead of carrying a gun and shooting blanks, firecrackers will be used to simulate gun: fire. Powell plans on meeting with the businesses on Main Street to discuss what they should do. Both Goldendale Chief of Police Rick Johnson and Mayor Clint Baze feel that businesses should be pre- pared for emergencies, but the active shooter drill has too many uncontrolled vari- ables to be safe. 'As far as the drill goes, I don't want it to happen," Baze says. "There will be too many people who won't understand what's happening and be frightened." "I'm very hesitant," John- son adds. "I understand it's good to have training, but usually when we run a drill like this it's in a totally con- trolled environment." Goldendale teens injured in single car accident Two Goldendale teens were injured in a single car roll- over, Sunday morning, according to the Washington State Patrol. The driver of the car, Tyrell E. Read, 16 and his 14 year old male passenger were both transported by private vehicle following the accident. The report states that Read was driving a 1998 Ford Es- cort, westbound on SR 142 when he was distracted and left the roadway colliding with a culvert and ditch. The car came to rest on the highway facing west in the eastbound lane. The extent of the injuries was not provided. Drugs and alcohol were not involved in the accident. Klickitat salutes veterans A parade of veterans will be greeted in the town of Klicki- tat on Oct. 11, as the town hosts "Hunting with Heroes." This is the third year for the event at Klicktiat, and the public is in- vited to join the celebration. "Hunting with Heroes is a wonderful organization and we are proud they chose our community for the program," said Carl Coolidge, owner of the Canyon Market where the crowd will gather following the 11 a.m. parade through town. The streets will be lined with 100 flags and an honor program will be presented, including performances by Harmony of the Gorge, a Sweet Adelines International group member. "Hunting with Heroes brings recognition to our small communi helping us to build tourism and the hunting and fishing businesses on which our town depends," said Coolidge. "More importantly though, it gives back to the men and women who were willing to sacrifice for the free- dom we enjoy today" GPS f,o.

Knowlton's wishes to advance had not been any secret over the years, according to Heid, and an occurrence such as the one that just took place had been discussed by school board members and those in- volved quite a bit before it ever happened. Heid went on to say "We were as prepared for this eventuality as we could be, but it still came as a bit of a shock. We hate to lose Mr. Knowlton but would not want to hold him back from such an opportunity either." Ferrell, GPS's new princi- pal, once worked with Knowl- ton at the primary school be- fore he moved up to become the high school's vice princi- pal for six years. Ferrell had also expressed an interest in advancing to a principal's po- sition eventually, and when Knowlton approached Heid about moving to a different district, Heid was confident that he had a good man stand- ing by to fill the vacancy, Moving along the line of upward-falling dominoes, high school basketball coach Lance DenBoer, who was working as an intern for a principalship, was able to be granted an emergency certifi- cation to fill the vice principal vacancy at the high school. Heid expressed absolute faith that all three men would per- form excellently in their new positions. Knowlton first hired on with Goldendale schools as a district psychologist in 1995. He was principal at GPS for the last 10 years and during that time helped bring about many programs that have been popular with students and parents, such as the "Leadership and Self-man- agement" system of awards and badges. He also instituted the school's morning televi- sion news broadcast, pro- duced and executed by the Movies in 3D subject to a 3D surcharge www.Moviesln TheDalles.com Two offices to serve you 926 12th Street 414 Washington St. Hood River The Dalles 541-386-2012 541-296-3310 What our customers are saying: Great Service!

Herrera.Beutler says she is staying on the job while daughter is treated in California Rep. Jaimie Herrera Beutler (R-3rd Dis- trict) has written a letter to constituents af- firming her intention to continue represent- ing her district in the face of her daughter's significant health challenges. "Recently, I announced the birth of my daughter Abigail, who arrived three months early and with a serious medical condition that was previously considered fatal," Her- rera Beutler wrote in a letter dated Sept. 5. "Since that time, my husband Daniel and I have been at Abigail's side at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Paid Alto, Calif.---one of the few hospitals in the region with the medical expertise and willingness to care for Washington, D.C., to participate in critical votes. For example, I plan to be in D.C. to vote on the President's request for authorization of military force in Syria. I also continue to communicate with constituents electronical- ly and as early as next week will be conduct- ing community meetings via telephone that will be open to all district residents." Her letter stated constituents were wel- come as always to get in touch with her office immediately with any concerns, saying she and her staff will continue to work to assist anyone in her district with federal law or agency problems.

In an in- terview Monday, via phone from his new office in Kettle Falls, he explained that he be- lieves "Children need to be shown that everything we do in school can be applied in real life." Knowlton was a popular principal with his students here, making a point to know each of them by their first names, and he wasn't afraid to get silly with them at as- semblies and awards cere- monies. They took much pride in the badges he gave to them for displaying their abil- ities to self-manage and con- duct themselves as leaders. Knowlton's departure from Goldendale was bittersweet for him, and severing the strong connection he had built up with the district and its surrounding community was not easy He had this to say as a farewell message to his former students: "I'm so sorry I had to leave so quickly, without getting a chance to say good-bye. I miss you all and hope you will continue to be good leaders."
