The Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee of the Northwest Line Construction Industry, a nonprofit organization that trains apprentices from all over the country, is hoping to break ground on a new training center in Battle Ground next year.
LA CENTER -- When La Center's 2015 budget was finalized, no funds were allocated for a city-sponsored farmers market. But instead of leaving the city without one, Lori Deschand, 61, of Ridgefield decided to start her own.
Battle Ground — More than 370 participants walked the track at Battle Ground High School on Aug. 15 as part of the 10th annual Relay For Life North Clark County. The event, which started at 10 a.m. and went until 10 a.m. the following day, raised more than $79,000 for the American Cancer Society. The relay kicked off with a survivor's lap, featuring 100 cancer survivors walking one lap on the track. A committee of about 40 people planned the event throughout the last year.
Ridgefield — Before the Clark County Fair could finish out another year, the new Fair Court had to be selected. The girls picked for the upcoming year were Serenity Gibbs, Mikaela Schuman and Shaylee Coleman. The Fair Court is open to girls ages 16 to 20 who have a stock horse they can perform with at rodeo events. The three girls earned the honor during a tryout process that consisted of personal interviews, a knowledge test, speeches and horsemanship.
