I had the pleasure of talking with Shannon Criss, the Superintendent for Winlock School District regarding the split of the athletic programs between Winlock and Toledo. I was pleased to hear the athletic programs will not be affected, our kids need there extra curricular activities. If there are individuals who would like to get involved, she can be reached at the District Office 360-785-3582. Let’s continue to support our schools, show the students we care and we want them to succeed.
Continuing with the idea of helping our young people, I thought it would be a good idea to interview Oskar Musgrove from the Winlock Martial Arts (360-304-9151). He offers programs from Tae Kwon Do, kick boxing, Wrestling, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Muay Thai (form of kick boxing from Thailand) and Women’s self defense. He was in the semi pro world opening up for Denny the Jet and Bill Wallace. Winlock is lucky to have a man who is willing to put the time and effort in to helping the kids of our community.

TC: What is your greatest achievement?
OM: Marrying my wife
TC: What is the one thing the people in Winlock may not know about you?
OM: That I love to landscape,c its like therapy for me.
He also offers programs for kids who can not afford the cost of the class, contact him and he will tell you all about it. He would also like to start a Safe House program with the other businesses in town; it was a great idea to hear our kids would have a place to be safe in time of need.
