Friends of Library seeks book donations for sale

The Friends of the Library needs donations of books for the its annual sale, Sept. 26 and 27.

Books for the sale can be left at the library, now located in the old Sprint building at 601 State St.

“We count on donations from the community to make our annual sale a success,” said Diane Allen, President of the Friends.

Because of the library’s move, the annual sale did not happen in May.

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
