Stadium Shovels

Corey Level, a former HRVHS football player, drops the shovel on a backhoe at Henderson Community Stadium, where groundbreaking for Project Eagle 2003 got underway Thursday morning. Gary Fisher of Fisher Construction, along with Zeller Excavating, began work on the area which will feature new bathrooms as well as a small courtyard adjacent to the stadium. Project Eagle 2003 is an ongoing community project now raising funds for the stadium improvements, set for completion by June.

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
