The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

GPS students can dress up for Halloween

Hear's Goldendale

 


It is nice to see a new face or two at Java Talk, which is held for the public every first and third Friday mornings at 8 a.m. at Golden Coyote Coffee.

There was a lot of discussion on the Affordable Care Act at Java Talk, or should I say lots of questions and concerns. Last week’s Chamber Community Forum luncheon was almost standing room only at Gee’s Restaurant with three guests talking about the Affordable Care Act.

Last Friday’s Java Talk received news the Ministerial Association has been talking with KVH about the possibility of having pastoral care in the hospital, as well as a place for a chapel. Also, the soup kitchen is having its challenges, therefore are only able to supply free dinners for those in need on Mondays and Tuesdays. But, CEKC is now able to fund financial training events, so, the people that come to the free dinners, will be encouraged to come to a free financial training class on Wednesdays.

Trunk or Treat will be here in Goldendale on Saturday, Oct. 26, on Main Street from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Bring your car and back it in, decorate your trunk if you want, wear a Halloween outfit and bring your candy. There are many children attending. There will be the Haunted Hall for older children and grownups, but it is too gorey for younger children. Kids can buy tickets for games and hot dogs and there will also be karaoke and maybe another surprise or two. The General Store sponsors this event. Announced at Java Talk was that the building where Rainbow Video used to be is now for rent, as of Oct. 1. You can talk to the owners at the General Store about renting the building.

Last but not least, a young adult says there are many things to do in the Goldendale area for most people, except for the young adults. What would the young adults want to do in town? Some events have been tried but the young adults don’t seem too interested. What would take them away from the computer and iPhones for a few hours?

Here is Jack Bostick’s weather stats for the month of September 2013: high temp. 93.8 degrees on Sept. 12; low temp. 36.5 on Sept. 19; high wind gust 45 mph on Sept. 15 and most rain .44 on Sept. 28.

An account has just been opened at Sterling Bank in Goldendale called “Steve Stout Appreciation” where folks may deposit a donation towards a community appreciation gift for Steve’s 40 years of service at the Observatory. The gift, hopefully, will be a very special telescope he has wanted for a long time (retail value $2000). People can deposit their donation in the fund at the bank. If they have questions about the gift I suggest they call Troy Carpenter at the Observatory. The gift will be presented to Steve at the 40th anniversary celebration of the Observatory on Oct. 26. Thank You Steve Stout for your 40 years of dedication.

The Goldendale Primary School is allowing the children to dress up on Halloween this year, Thursday, Oct. 31, either as a story book character or another appropriate costume. By appropriate costume, it means no masks, no blood, no false teeth, no swords, no sceptors, no fake animals or other props. They can simply wear a wig or funny shirt, etc. If you have questions, please call the school at 773-4665.
