Tiara Tarry

Photo by Kirby Neumann-Rea

Moms and kids enjoyed the sunshine last week outside the dogwood-decked Mike’s Ice Cream. Lewie Taylor hands his mother, Libby, a tiara he borrowed from Eloise Vernhes, who watches in the background with her sister, Raine. Lewie’s brother, Miles, runs up at left. Nearby, but out of the photo, were Vernhes and her infant son, Remy. These dogwood blossoms have mostly transformed to leaves in the past week, but vibrant pink and white dogwoods, along with sturdy lilacs and newly-bloomed rhododendrons form a community-wide corsage to help celebrate Mother’s Day.

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
