The Big Boom: Mt. St. Helens' eruption 40 years ago

This is the 40th Anniversary of Mt. St. Helens' eruption, a time that many of us locals remember all too well.

It was early in the morning on a Sunday, many of us were going about our usual days. Getting ready for church, just doing what we did as a family 40 years ago. For myself, I was a young high school age student living in Winlock.

We went to church that morning like we always did on Sunday. The Lutheran Church in Winlock has a beautiful view of Mt. St. Helens. After church when we all walked out, there was a huge plume of ash coming out of the top of the mountain. At that point, I remember asking, "what happened?" and someone older said "It looks like she finally blew her top." I didn't understand what exactly that meant at the time.

A little piece of Vader history missing

Within the past two months, a small piece of Vader history has gone missing. The missing piece is a small memorial stone taken from the Little Falls Cemetery in Vader. The stone was located and last seen next to the sitting bench in the back part of the old section.

The stone is inscribed with the dates January 2, 1923 - January 6, 1923 and the baby's name Nigel James Bowen Son of Ralph & Virgil "Virgie" M. Bowen. The cemetery cannot find the family or relatives of this baby boy and he seems to have been buried at this cemetery alone. There were several Bowen families living in the Vader/Ryderwood area in the 1920s according to records. It is not known where the families went after the baby's death.
