The Columbian

The Columbian is a daily newspaper for Vancouver and Clark County, Washington. The paper was published for its first decade as a four-page daily, meant as a counterweight to the local Republican newspaper The Independent. Printer Tom Carolan began publication of The Vancouver Columbian on October 10, 1890, it hedged out daily competition, such as the former Independent, to become the sole daily in the city today. A former weekly The Sun which published for 39 years prior to going daily, it has been owned by the Campbell family since 1921. It is the newspaper of record for both Washougal. Members of The Columbian's editorial board are Scott Campbell, Jody Campbell, Craig Brown and Greg Jayne; the Vancouver Columbian was first published as a weekly on October 10, 1890, before becoming a weekday paper on October 19, 1908. Herbert Campbell, grandfather of current publisher Scott Campbell, bought the paper in 1921, it occupied a series of offices in downtown Vancouver before building its own offices at what is now the northwest corner of Evergreen and Broadway in 1928.

Relocating to larger headquarters in 1955, it published its first Sunday edition on August 6, 1972, its first Saturday edition on July 10, 1999, changed from afternoon to morning delivery in July 2000. The paper relocated to new offices just south of Esther Short Park on January 13, 2008, citing declining revenue, relocated to their original building at 701 W. Eighth St. by December of the same year in an attempt to avert bankruptcy. On May 1, 2009, The Columbian filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection On February 5, 2010, the company emerged from bankruptcy. On June 10, 2010, the city of Vancouver purchased the former Columbian building and surrounding land downtown for $18.5 million from the Bank of America to become its new City Hall. Official website

Glenn Seton

Glenn Seton is an Australian racing driver. He won the Australian Touring Car Championship in 1997 while driving for his own team. Although he never won the Bathurst 1000 like his father Barry did in 1965, Glenn started from pole position in 1994 and 1996, finished second three times, he came close to winning the race in 1995, holding a significant lead in the closing stages, but his engine failed nine laps from the finish. Seton, father of Courtney and Aaron Seton and husband to Jayne Seton, retired from full-time racing after the 2005 V8 Supercar season, he raced Fords and Nissans in the Australian Touring Car Championship since making his debut in his father's Ford Capri in the 1984 Australian Touring Car Championship, ran his own team for a number of years. He raced for his father's team, in 1983 driving a Ford Capri Nissan Motorsport from the 1984 Australian Endurance Championship until his last year with the team in 1988, driving first in a Nissan Pulsar EXA in the 1984 Castrol 500 at Sandown in Melbourne, at the 1984 James Hardie 1000, both times alongside Christine Gibson, the wife of his future boss Fred Gibson.

His best year with Nissan came in 1987 driving the Nissan Skyline RS DR30 when he would finish second behind Jim Richards in the ATCC. Teamed with John Bowe, Seton would finish second in the 1987 James Hardie 1000 which that year was part of the inaugural World Touring Car Championship. 1988 would be a frustrating year for Seton. Nissan introduced the new Skyline HR31 GTS-R, with the car arriving only mid-season, the team could not get on terms with the much more powerful Ford Sierra RS500s; the cars initial unreliability saw Seton's Skyline retire from the first lap at both the Sandown 500 and Tooheys 1000, both times when the cars production based gearbox failed. Following this and his father Bo left the Nissan team at the end of 1988 to set up Glenn Seton Racing, which ran from 1989 to 2002 with Ford Sierra RS500s before moving to drive one of the new V8 Ford EB Falcons in 1992 where he became the first driver to put a Falcon into the top 10 qualifiers at Bathurst since 1984; the move to the new V8 formula would prove fruitful for Seton, winning the 1993 and 1997 Australian Touring Car Championships, while claiming pole position at Bathurst in 1994 and 1996.

At the end of 2002, Seton sold the team to Prodrive and the team name was renamed to Ford Performance Racing with Seton remaining with the team as a driver. In 2005 he moved to Dick Johnson Racing. In late 2005 after a disappointing season, Seton was sacked from Dick Johnson Racing halfway through his two-year contract. Seton was not able to find a 2006 full-time drive, so he joined Stone Brothers Racing for the two V8 Supercar endurance races with James Courtney. Brake issues hampered the # 4 SBR Falcon at Sandown. At Bathurst they finished third. Seton moved from Ford and joined his childhood friend and old Nissan Skyline team mate Mark Skaife and for the first time in Seton's career, to drive in a Holden Commodore VE with the Holden Racing Team as an endurance driver for 2007, he finished 13th in the Sandown 500 with Tony Longhurst and 11th in the Bathurst 1000 with Nathan Pretty. Seton again joined the Holden Racing Team in 2008; the pair came 14th at the Phillip Island 500 and were running at the Bathurst 1000 until a late race clash with Warren Luff put them out of the race.

He made his final Bathurst appearance with Jason Bargwanna in 2010. Seton is involved in the Australian Speedway scene and has travelled to the US with 2007/08 and 2009/10 Australian Super Sedan Champion, Jamie McHughIn 2013 Seton won the 2013 Great Southern 4 Hour, sharing a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 10 with Bob Pearson; when Glenn Seton was growing up, his motor racing idol was a former team mate of his father's, Allan Moffat. † Not eligible for series points Seton joining Holden Bathurst stats
