The family of Baby Titus has been waiting since January to see him improve. Susie Sickles, Baby Titus' grandmother, stated on Sunday in a message to the Town Crier, "Titus got his heart yesterday and all is well!" He will soon be off of the breathing machine and feeding tube. The community celebrates with the family but our hearts go out to the family who lost their young baby in order to give Titus a normal life.
Little Crane Café in Vader isn't just a local hangout with awesome food, it's a place that many consider an institution. Jason Dailey operates Little Crane for his family. Customers come from all around to eat a meal and to enjoy the atmosphere.
Jason's parents, John and Ginny Dailey, purchased the restaurant with Ginny's sister in 1988. The Dailey's bought out Ginny's sister in the early 90's. Jason said, "my mom had always wanted a restaurant. She was working at Longview Fibre Mill and she saw this as a way to get out of the woods." The family has owned and operated Little Crane ever since. They also own J&G Grocery, which is located behind Little Crane Cafe.
Jason stated, "the Little Crane has been around since the 1950's and it is still serving the same comfort country food to this day." They recently changed the interior with new flooring, tables and chairs but the food quality and atmosphere has remained the same.

Cute little bunnies, candy filled eggs, and sugar logged marshmallow birds are already filling our pantries; but why? Well the holiday is Easter and the western tradition tagged on to this holiday is a day of remembrance and celebration of the resurrection of Christ; which begs the question, what do all these other things have to do with this great man that not only died on the cross but rose from the grave? The truth is simple, nothing at all. Our holidays are ancient worldly traditions that we have merely tagged Jesus on to in hopes to fulfill a religious right that may leave our bellies full but our souls still empty. So rather than us going rounds on, "Why Easter" I would much rather focus on this: "Why Jesus."
Evie Wheeler was not just a mother to her own children, she was a mom to many kids in Winlock, babysitting over 400 kids in her lifetime. She started babysitting when she was in high school and she continued for many decades, being a second mom to many in the area until 2007. She enjoyed being a mom, whether to her own children or to others.
Her daughter, Heather Wheeler of Shoreline, Washington, said it best, "every child she took care of became her family and her family was her whole life. She loved easily, genuinely and with her whole heart." Nick, Evie and Jim's son, wrote a wonderful piece about his mom on Facebook. It truly showed the love he had for his mom.
