Toledo dedicates Don Bowen Field

Toledo High School will dedicate the high school baseball field by naming it for one of its distinguished alumni - Don Bowen. The event will precede Toledo's home opener against Morton-White Pass. The dedication will begin at 3:15 p.m. on March 16, when Don and family will throw out the first pitch.

After the on-field ceremony, people are invited inside the high school for a few words about Don and an unveiling of the new sign for the baseball field. "Take me out to the ballgame" will conclude the ceremony and a social hour with a ballpark dinner (hot dogs of course!) will be served. The Toledo School District encourages anyone who played with Don in high school, college, or fast pitch, as well as classmates, family, and friends to attend and help us honor Don Bowen.

Around the Willapa: A conversation with Raymond Police Chief Chuck Spoor

"We can't incarcerate our way to a safer community. Our best investment is in early childhood education."
~ Chuck Spoor

Given the number of Spoors in the community, I assume that you grew up here. Who are you related to? Where did you go to high school? And who is in your immediate family?

I grew up in South Bend and graduated from South Bend High School in 1988.
