Free fishing reels in anglers

first_imgSize: 280 acres; the lake was formed by a volcano.Activities: Swimming, fishing, and hiking on 10 miles of trail. You can ride horseback on separate trails, as well.How popular? Ranks about 46th of the state’s approximately 150 parks.Campsites: 50.Parking: Enough for 200 cars.Price per night: Standard campsites are $22; hook-ups are $29 and cabins are $71.30.Reservations: 888-CAMPOUT. On the Web: http://www.parks.wa.gov.The lure of free fishing hooked Ryan O’Haver of east Vancouver as he cast his line from the dock into tranquil Battle Ground Lake on Sunday afternoon.“This is my first time in 15 years,” he said about 4 p.m. He was confident he’d hook one anytime.It was his first time at Battle Ground Lake State Park, and he gave this assessment: “It’s gorgeous.”Close by on the dock, Nedo Tanjo of Vancouver was happy with a 10-inch trout. He was fishing with his father, Inas Tanjo, who brought in another one just moments later.“It’s a nice, quiet area. Good people. And lots of fish,” Nedo Tanjo said.He was correct about the fish. The state planted 3,000 trout in the lake Wednesday. The limit is five or two that are 21 inches or longer, said Park Ranger Reuben Stuart.Perched on a log nearby, Aaron Brown of Vancouver was trying his luck with his 3-year-old son, Carter. “We got skunked,” Brown said. “He doesn’t last too long, an hour or two.“We came out here on Memorial Day weekend. Got skunked then, too.”Brown, who has a fishing license, said he was not aware that this was free fishing weekend in the state. But he did notice the numerous fishermen on the banks and in boats.“Man, people like it here,” Brown said. “It’s a busy spot.”Camping and moreThe state park with its 50 camping spots is popular, too, ranger Stuart said.Although the park is close to Battle Ground, Stuart offered, “As soon as you get here, you feel you’re out in the middle of nowhere.”last_img read more

Proposed arboretums open house is Sunday

first_imgVancouver — An open house is scheduled noon to 6 p.m. Sunday at a county property along the Columbia River that backers hope will someday be a public arboretum.The potential E. Jane Weber Arboretum contains an old home — the oldest in Clark County, built by a Hudson’s Bay Co. employee — and has been privately owned for decades. Its last owners willed the property to Clark County and its foundation; now the groups are trying to decide what to do with it and soliciting help in both achieving the vision and maintaining the property in the meantime.The arboretum is at 9215 S.E. Evergreen Highway.last_img

Frozen yogurt heats up again

first_imgMiriah Mallory might be tempted to blame pregnancy for her frozen yogurt craving. But Mallory, 24, discovered frozen yogurt during a visit to southern California about one and a half years ago, long before she became pregnant.“There’s something about the texture and taste,” the Vancouver resident said, standing at the register of Yo 2 Go, a frozen yogurt shop in Vancouver’s Salmon Creek area that opened this summer.Texture and taste that are closer to ice cream than the frozen yogurts of the past are selling points to a growing number of customers in Vancouver and nationally. So is the self-service system embraced by the new wave of yogurt shops that appeal to the wide difference in customer taste buds and appetites.Mallory had built her own concoction, choosing from a bank of flavored frozen yogurt that dispenses like soft-serve ice cream, and then dishing up the toppings and syrups and finishing it off with a request for whipped cream on top. That’s the standard for frozen yogurt these days: Serve yourself, make your own sundae concoction and pay by weight at a register. The set-up gives customers control over portion size and extras.“If I only want two bites, I’m only paying for two bites,” said Christine Borquez, assistant manager of Yo Licious in Hazel Dell. It’s one of two Yo Licious locations in Clark County, with the other in Orchards.last_img read more

Mike Leach to be Cougs new football coach

first_imgPULLMAN — Bill Moos, who has vowed to change the “culture” of Washington State athletics, may have changed the landscape of Pacific-12 Conference football for years to come when the Cougars announced Wednesday that offensive guru Mike Leach has agreed in principle on a five-year contract as head coach.“I asked athletic director Bill Moos to select the best head football coach in the country and I am convinced that he has done exactly that,” WSU president Elson Floyd said in a news release.From 2000-09, Leach’s Texas Tech teams featured high-scoring, pass-happy offenses. Moos stressed the need to put “butts in seats” when he fired Paul Wulff on Tuesday with one year left on Wulff’s five-year contract.“I have spoken about the need to re-energize our fan base and take Coguar football to the next level,” Moos said. “I believe the hiring of Mike Leach accomplishes both of those goals.”The Cougars, backed by millions of dollars of added revenue from new television contracts that kick in next year, will reportedly pay Leach almost four times as much as Wulff’s $600,000 annual salary.last_img read more

ObamaRomney townhall debate is a tussle

first_imgo FACT CHECK: Not all claims in debate stand up to scrutinyo LOCAL ANGLE: Romney looked good to friend David Nierenberg from CamasHEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — An aggressive President Barack Obama accused challenger Mitt Romney of favoring a “one-point plan” — to help the rich in America — and playing politics with the recent deadly terrorist attack in Libya in a Tuesday night debate crackling with energy and emotion just three weeks before the election.Romney pushed back hard, saying the middle class “has been crushed over the last four years,” that 23 million Americans are struggling to find work and that the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya was part of an unraveling foreign policy.The president was feistier from the outset than in their initial encounter two weeks ago, when his listless performance sent shudders through his supporters and helped fuel a Romney rise in opinion polls nationally and in some battleground states.Obama and Romney disagreed, forcefully and repeatedly — about taxes, measures to reduce the deficit, energy, pay equity for women and health care as well as foreign policy — across 90 minutes of a town-hall style debate.“You’ll get your chance in a moment. I’m still speaking,” the former Massachusetts governor said at one point while Obama was mid-sentence, drawing a gasp from the audience.last_img read more

Skyviews Dobbin back on softball diamond

first_imgLoaded: The Camas Papermakers have two quality pitchers (Harli Hubbard and Katie Schroeder). They return the All-Region player of the year (Amee Aarhus). Oh, and they had new talent move into town. Camas reached the Class 3A state tournament last year. Now a 4A program, the Papermakers hope to make it to state this year at the biggest classification in the state.Also moving up: Ridgefield moved from 1A to 2A, but the Spudders should not be intimidated. They have Shannon Boyle in the pitching circle, which means they likely will be in every game.Moving down, but possibly going to the top: The Woodland Beavers went from 2A to 1A this year. In softball, that means they are automatically a contender for a state championship. Makayla Lefever has been pitching great the first weeks of the season, including quality wins over 4A and 3A competition. Emily Tesdale and Emma Pilkington, meanwhile, provide bats and leadership. The three of them, now seniors, were part of Woodland’s state championship team as freshmen.Staying put: The Prairie Falcons did not change leagues. They remain a solid program in the 3A Greater St. Helens League. Taylor Bussey seems to crush the ball at every plate appearance. Another team that remains in the league is Mountain View. The Thunder stunned everyone but themselves last year by making it to state with two seniors. Our guess if the Thunder believe they can make another long run this year.Name to remember? Columbia River’s Teaghan Cowles has been nothing short of amazing in her first couple weeks of high school softball. A freshman, she can hit for power. Or, if she just gets on first base, it’s almost as good as a triple. So fast, she is just about automatic with steals.last_img read more

Senate Dems push Obama nominees GOP bides time

first_imgWASHINGTON — Fresh from shackling the traditional blocking ability of the Senate’s minority party, Democrats are ready to muscle through President Barack Obama’s nominees for pivotal judgeships and other top jobs.Despite last month’s Democratic power play, Senate Republicans retain the power to slow, though not derail, Obama’s appointments.Left unchanged were other rules that the out-of-power party could use to grind the chamber’s work to an excruciating crawl. That ranges from requiring clerks to read voluminous bills and amendments to forcing repeated procedural votes.“There are so many ways of slowing things down in the Senate,” said Robert Dove, the Senate’s former long-time parliamentarian.Monday starts a two-week, year-end Senate session in which Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., hopes to finish work on a modest budget deal, a defense bill and other lingering items.It will also be the first test of how Republicans respond to the Democratic changes.Monday’s meeting marks the chamber’s first since irritable lawmakers left town Nov. 21 for their Thanksgiving break. Earlier that day, Democrats used their 55-45 edge to reshape how filibusters work, trimming the number of votes needed to halt procedural delays against most nominations from 60 to a simple majority.Democrats pushed through the changes after tiring of what they consider excessive GOP efforts to derail Obama’s nominees. The move angered Republicans, who argue that Democrats frequently tried blocking President George W. Bush’s judicial nominees.last_img read more

Weather Eye Its looking like first heat wave of summer is well

first_imgPatrick Timm Summer is in full swing, like big letters on a marquee for a blockbuster movie. And it will be an extended engagement for the foreseeable future. Warm today — okay, maybe hot — then a little cooler Wednesday and Thursday, and finally, if the pattern evolves just right, a long run of 90 degree weather. I foresee our first heat wave of the summer coming up by the weekend and into all of next week. Just thinking of that prospect while writing my column, I had to get out the iced tea. My definition of a heat wave is three straight days of 90 degrees (in the shade) or better. Increased moisture from the monsoons over the desert southwest will meander northward at times, bringing thunderstorms and downpours along with the heat. These should remain in southern Oregon and east of the Cascades. But you never know.So, if you are leaving home for vacation time this week or next, make plans for your yard, garden and potted plants to be watered each day. We will have a high evaporation rate. The coast will see an influx of low clouds and fog, especially whenever it heats up inland. But there will be instances of afternoon sunshine and temperatures in the 65-80 degree range.Okay, before we depart, let’s review some rainfall from June according yo your friends and neighbors: Murphy Dennis, near Clark County Rifles, 6.62 inches; Claudia Chiasson, Carson, 3.39 inches; Judy Darke, Felida, 2.02 inches; Irv St. Germain, Prune Hill, 2.94 inches; Bob Starr, Cougar, 4.67 inches; Phil Delany, Dole Valley, 6.20 inches; Robin Ruzek, Lake Shore, 1.54 inches; Pete Conrad, near Tukes Mountain, 3.74 inches; Merle Moore, two miles west of Yacolt, 4.35 inches; Dave Campbell, one mile west of Heisson, 1.86 inches; Jim Knoll, Five Corners, 2.74 inches; Dan Hein, Camas, 3.60 inches; Barry Fitzthum, Amboy, 3.18 inches; Matt Sloan, McLoughlin Heights, 4.44 inches ; and Ellen Smart, Ridgefield, 2.20 inches.last_img read more
