Gov. Jay Inslee last Thursday issued an emergency order to temporarily restrict non-urgent health care services, procedures and surgeries that are performed in hospitals as part of a package of measures taken to address the current COVID-related state of crisis in hospitals.
The emergency order also prohibits all hospitals from utilizing personal protective equipment (PPE) other than according to a conventional capacity strategy.
This emergency order is effective at 12:01 on Monday, Jan. 17 and will remain in effect until 11:59 pm on Feb. 17 unless rescinded sooner.
Addison Hall is a force to be reckoned with as well as admired both on and off the court. She was celebrated on Tuesday night, January 11, for earning over 1,000 points in her basketball career. Addison started playing basketball in 3rd grade. If you asked Addison why she decided to play basketball, she would tell you that it was "kind of" an expectation in her family that she play sports as her two brothers, Dawson and Logan did.
To Addison, the most exciting part about playing basketball is being part of a team and of course, "WINNING!"

It was a snowy evening during Christmas week in Winlock, Washington and Haylee Laur was babysitting two of her youngest siblings while her parents were out picking up a new washer and dryer. Haylee, 15, was in the living room while her sisters played in other rooms when she smelled smoke. Turning to the source down the hallway she saw flames leaping from the closet that held the home heating system. Haylee had to run past the flames to get to the youngest, her sister, three-year-old Elijah (Ellie). With Ellie in her arms she made sure the other child at home, four-year-old Madison also got out. Once outside with the others they realized their beloved Pug Buddy, (who has a bad leg and trouble walking) was still inside. Crawling to avoid the smoke she went back into the house and rescued Buddy.
Children in the foster care system have different programs available to them when they transition out of the system. Not all the programs are available in Pacific County, but one of the programs called the Foster Youth to Independence Voucher is supported in the county.
The program is part of the Systems of Care Section of the Adolescent Programs (AP) Division of the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF).
"AP Housing works with community partners to ensure that eligible young people prepare early for the transitions they make into emerging adulthood," said Adolescent Housing Program Manager Greg Williamson. "We help them experience supported transitions into safe, stable, and appropriate housing when they leave foster care placement, and enter the next phase of our care. We also help eligible families to access housing that supports them being with their children."
