Fire scare turns out to be a rumor

Fire+scare+turns+out+to+be+a+rumor

Lou Bailey, principal sent out an email on Sept. 25 shutting down rumors about the “fire”.

“We had a small transformer issue that caused a mechanical/electrical issue and there was smoke, but no flames, no fire, and no major issues!” Bailey said.

The fire department was called and responded in a timely fashion. Firefighters did have to pull breakers so computer and phone fallouts may happen. However it should be easily handled as the day goes on. No serious damage was done.

About the Contributor
Colin Squires, Business Manager/Opinion Editor
The energetic Colin Squires, junior and a state champion in lacrosse, is also an active member of the West Linn community. Squires may appear to be just another high school student, but he continually defies the typical teenager stereotype. President of the Alpaca Club, as well as an athlete and Opinion Editor he pursues his passions and shares them amongst his peers. Squires is an all around athlete. A member of the West Linn High School varsity Soccer Team, he participated in cross country his freshman and sophomore year; but his real passion is lacrosse. Squires is known as one of the best long stick middy’s in the state. He has played for eleven years, and has already verbally committed to University of Denver. “Every summer I head back East to see family and go to lacrosse camps,” Squires said. This helps him improve his skills and further intensify his abilities. Off the field, Squires is an avid student. He has been a part of the Amplifier staff as a writer starting his freshman year, and has since taken the positions of Opinion Editor and Business Manager. When Squires isn’t in class or on the field, he is in the stands, dressed from head to toe in West Linn’s green and gold. Hearing him shouldn’t be a problem either visiting teams on the other sides of football fields, and basketball courts are sure to hear Squires’ roar. On and off the field Squires is confident about himself as a student, athlete, and overall person. Squires has high goals set for himself. He takes on his responsibilities and is an important part of Amplifier. “He is a very important member of this staff, I don’t know what we would do without Colin, things sure would be less interesting,” Sam Dearborn, fellow Amplifier staff member, said.
