Mission Creek trip to Peru canceled; visited Honduras instead

When the COVID-19 lockdown happened last year, it threw a monkey wrench in Mission Creek Christian School's plans for their annual missionary trip to Peru. After a series of rescheduling and cancellations, the school finally went on their trip ... to Honduras.

"We did not go to our usual destination in Iquitos, Peru this year and we didn't do an international mission in 2020 due to COVID-19," Mission Creek Christion School Principal Mary Nell said. "We have missed an international mission only one other year since 2006. The border was closed in Peru at the time we could go so we went to Honduras instead."

On May 3, 2021 the school made its way to Honduras. They partnered with Pan American Health Services whose goal is to rehabilitate starving children.

After obtaining translators, the team started visiting local communities. The group witnessed families living in extreme poverty that is not commonly seen in the United States.

With Delta variants found in the county, health dept. sees the need to get vaccinated

Pacific County Health and Human Services Department Director Katie Lindstrom took time out of her busy schedule to provide insight about a handful of questions from the Herald about COVID-19 vaccinations.

Herald: Are you satisfied with the number of people that have been vaccinated in north and south Pacific County?

Lindstrom: We are happy that half of 'all' residents have received the vaccine (57 percent of those over age 16). I would love to see that number increase. The goal would be for at least 70 percent of residents to be vaccinated if possible.

Emily Marshall is a former teacher from Winlock, but her love for horses and tack is why she started her business.

Inslee "disappointed" about U.S.-Canada border closure

Gov. Jay Inslee issued the following statement last Wednesday regarding the federal government's recent announcement of continued U.S.-Canada border closure.

"I am extremely disappointed by the federal government's announcement today that the U.S. border with Canada will remain closed through at least August 21. This continued closure will result in continued hardship for Washingtonians living in border communities, including in Point Roberts.

"As I have expressed repeatedly in communications with the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security, the time has come to at least partially reopen the U.S.-Canada border, and I will continue to advocate for relief for border communities in Washington state."

Three Proclamations Rescinded

Gov. Jay Inslee last Tuesday (July 20) terminated two proclamations and gave advance notice of the termination of one additional proclamation related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proclamation 20-45

This proclamation suspended/waived deadlines and service of process requirements relating to protection orders. With the passage of HB1320, which goes into effect on July 25, this proclamation is no longer needed to provide relief to the judicial branch.

This order will be rescinded as of 11:59 pm, July 24, 2021.
