Huseby wins WAC Athlete of Week

Hood River Valley High School graduate Dana Huseby was named the Western Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Athlete of the Week for her performance in the pole vault at last week’s Holiday Inn Classic. Huseby, a sophomore at the University of Nevada, finished second in the pole vault by clearing the provisional qualifying height of 12 feet, five-and-a-half inches, en route to helping the Wolfpack to their third straight conference win. Huseby will look to top that mark at the WAC Championships, going on through today in Reno, Nev.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
