It is grievous to read about Dan Schenk’s being arrested for child pornography activity.

The summer I worked for the Port of Ilwaco in the 1980s, I'd look out the window every so often, watch the family’s good-looking charter fishing boats, and be glad to see what looked like success in a difficult industry.

Perhaps, when the legal aspects of this wretched situation are finished, Dan might talk to the community about how a young man of promise found himself allegedly snared into this heinous addiction.

I also hope that Willapa Behavioral Health and the Ocean Beach School District are up to successfully helping the youngsters who feel betrayed by this instructor’s actions find their footing.
