Toledo Fire Department, aka Lewis County Fire District #2, has hired three new firefighters/EMTs to help the city. With each community growing, it is important to have the services available to the residents who live there. Being a part of a community is a unique feeling, but being a part of a community with pride is a gift. Toledo is just that community, one with pride and a sense that we all need to work together. The citizens of Toledo voted for the new firefighters/EMTs. Now service is available around the clock; another show of Toledo coming together.
Another round of summer fun begins with a Cattle Sorting Clinic on August 12 put on by the Pacific County Friends of the Fair Foundation 501c3 (FOF). The entertainment continues with Cattle Sorting Practice which is scheduled for August 13 and 14 at the Pacific County Fairgrounds in Menlo.
"We have added a day to cattle sorting," said FOF President Val Rowe. "Friday, August 12 is the Cattle Sorting Clinic. Larry Mielke and Robert Bouffard, professional riders and cattle sorters, have offered to teach a sorting clinic for FOF. The proceeds will go to FOF. Currently the clinic is full with 18 riders from all over the state and a waiting list."
Last week marked the completion of the first free-standing tsunami vertical evacuation tower in the U.S. The tower is located near Tokeland before you get to the Tokeland Hotel. The tower was built by the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe using their funds and a FEMA grant.
The tower is named 'Auntie Lee' after Lee Shipman, the retired emergency manager for the tribe. This is to honor her since she was the driving force behind securing the funding for the tower.
