Bill's Chicken and Steak House set to close after 49 years
Bill’s Chicken and Steak House, a landmark Vancouver restaurant, has been sold and its longtime family owners expect April 12 to be the venue’s last day of business. The 49-year-old restaurant was sold by brother-and-sister proprietors Jane Wiger, 69, and Alan Teel, 66. Their parents, Bill and Rosemary Teel, opened the family steak house in 1965 at 2200 St. John’s Blvd. The building and its additional parking lot sold for $475,000 to Ailian Ma, who reportedly plans to remodel the 7,700-square-foot venue and reopen it as a Chinese restaurant.

Family-Community Resource Centers highlighted by Data Quality Campaign, OMG Center for Collaborative Learning


Next month, Vancouver Public Schools’ (VPS) Family-Community Resource Centers (FCRCs) will take the spotlight as a success story highlighted by the Data Quality Campaign, an advocacy group focused on the use of high-quality data to improve student achievement, and the OMG Center for Collaborative Learning, a social-sector advisory organization. The success story will highlight the strategic use of data in Vancouver’s FCRCs, 13 school-based centers providing wraparound services and support to poverty-affected students and their families. In April, the success story can be found at


The district culls data from several sources to shape programming specific to each FCRC and to identify individual students and families who need additional support. Internal and external stakeholders use data from student, family and community needs surveys to build programs for their schools. Individual school performance data also guides every FCRC’s annual action plan, and FCRC site coordinators use data to identify students with chronic absenteeism and enroll them in attendance programs. In addition, each FCRC collects and reports data related to program attendance, resources, in-kind contributions and grant awards, connections to agencies and other metrics, and uses this data to evaluate its work.


As Clark County grows, develops and changes, so do the concerns of our association member businesses. Historically, the group has provided interaction between the Hazel Dell/Salmon Creek business community and the area’s citizens, young and old, through such activities as the Hazel Dell Parade of Bands, Fire Prevention Poster Contest, Highway 99 Corridor Revitalization Team, High School Student Scholarships to Clark College as well as other youth and school events and projects.
