SOUTH BEND – For Bob and Doris Byrd, the holidays are made for decorating.
“We have been doing this as long as we can remember. It has not always been as big, it has grown through the years, but Doris and I enjoy spending the time decorating,” said Bob.
The Byrd’s decorate on most every holiday and are well into the Christmas season with their corner South Bend house.

SOUTH BEND – Not every community can see Santa arrive on a boat for a special pre-Christmas event. But that's going to happen in South Bend on Thursday, Dec. 12.

The agenda at the first December meeting of the Pacific County PUD commissioners meeting read like so many at this time of the year with voting of proposed budgets for the 2014 operating year.
And after the business of current correspondence was noted and the general manager report, the commissioners got down to the business of voting on four resolutions that would approve budgets for the electrical department and three water departments.
The Raymond Fire Department quickly extinguished a residential fire at 121 Ocean Ave. in Raymond at 11:46 p.m. last Thursday.

The City of Vader has decided to terminate a pilot program with Blue Array in light of the sewer company's inability to continue processing influent.
Though Blue Array had been testing their portable treatment system in Vader since the beginning of the year, power to their prototype was disconnected Dec. 1 after they failed to keep up with electric bills, leaving them unable to treat the sewage entering Vader's plant.
The Vader City Council has approved a resolution supporting a transfer agreement giving their water system to Lewis County, with an opportunity for the city to reacquire the system within 10 years.
The management of Vader's system had been given to Lewis County by a court order in early 2010 in light of significant leaks in the system, which Vader could not afford to repair at the time.

Coach John Peterson:
Goals: Rebound well, play good defense, share the ball, and play harder than anyone we play. Finish in the top half of our league.
Weaknesses: Not a lot of depth and perimeter shooting.
Leaders: Our seniors are doing a nice job so far.
Captain(s): Matt Konigsberger, Stephen Camenzind
League forecast: The league is as good as I have seen it in a while. Raymond is the clear favorite. They are very athletic and will be well coached. North Beach is scary because of their athleticism and they play so hard. Northwest Christian-Lacey is improved, as is Ocosta. South Bend is a team that worries me because they are a year more experienced and are well coached.

The Winlock/Toledo sports rivalry may not be what it used to be, but don't tell that to any of the basketball girls on the George Murdock floor Wednesday night at Toledo High School during the only athletic meeting of the two schools this school year.
The Winlock girls came out focused, reeling off 13 and then 18 points in the first and second quarters respectively behind pin-point shooting during a 50-39 non-league game on Wednesday. When the lady Cardinals didn't have the ball, they were making life miserable for Toledo with a harassing ninety feet of defense.
A Winlock man has been arrested for stealing an estimated $100,000 worth of electronics from UPS over the last four months, and appeared in court on 18 felony charges Dec. 3.
Roland E. Camps, 40, was taken into custody Dec. 2 following an investigation into shipments of cell phones, video games and other electronics stolen since Aug. 9, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office.
Winlock has added a new officer to its police department, who has begun patrolling the city after being confirmed by the City Council Nov. 25.
Officer Joshua Goffena was hired to fill a vacant full-time officer’s position left open since September and joins Winlock after serving in Anchorage, Alaska, for the last four years.
