Bagging the “grandaddy” of all black tail bucks, John Houghton, Moclips hunter, brought in a 247-pound four-point deer today and registered his prize at Brennan’s sporting goods department store.

Houghton bagged his buck in the upper Satsop region near Lake Nahwatzel.

Kelso’s Highlanders might be in a revengeful mood Friday night in the Cowlitz city when the Aberdeen Bobcats come to town. Aberdeen walloped the Scotties 35-0 and 27-0 the past two years enroute to successive SWW Conference championships and both games caused some hard, bitter feelings in the Kelso camp.

Now that Otto Kofler’s Kelso club has won three out of four, while Aberdeen has been hard-pressed to salvage one win in three games against such powers as Lincoln, Olympia and an up and coming Bellingham eleven, the Scotties may be fired up to a “remember last year” pitch.

Hoquiam’s Grizzlies own a passing attack second to none on the high school football scene.

With surprising George Cross doing the throwing, the Grizzlies have completed 29 of 46 attempts for a 63 per cent completion average and 379 yards — not bad for a high school team.

End John Lawrence has been Cross’ No. 1 target. The quick-footed 6-1, 170-pound senior has grabbed nine passes, while backs Rick Sturm, Gene Thompson and end Stan Pinnick have also been on the end of a number of Cross aerials.

• The exact cause of a fire that did at least $250,000 damage at the Saginaw Shingle Mill in Aberdeen may never be determined because there are so many old fire scars.

“It was a pretty unique fire because (the mill) has burned so many times you can’t distinguish old from new,” said battalion chief Bob Phillips. “No one can even agree on how many times it has burned,” he said.

• Brent Hooper’s ultimate potential is still unknown — and perhaps untapped.

The Montesano sophomore scored the biggest win of his young cross country career yesterday when he thrashed a strong field of mostly AA runners to win the boys’ division of the ninth annual Grizzly Alumni Invitational meet.

Hooper’s time of 14:30 tied the meet and course record.

If you’re a 25-year-old single mother without a job, chances are you receive Aid for Dependent Children. Most call it welfare.

But starting some time early next year the state program that provides financial support for low-income families will switch to FIP, the Family Independence Program.

FIP offers enhanced employment and training services, providing incentives for those who enter training or go to work.

It also pays child care expenses, hoping to get families off welfare.
