Dynamos U14 Eagles take state title

November 16, 2005

Hood River’s U14 Dynamos boys’ soccer team recently topped off an 11-3-1 fall season by earning the 2005 Division 1 state championship.

Facing teams from as far away as Klamath Falls, the boys, who often played without substitutes, proved to be the best team in the state in their division.

Head coach Mike Kitts offered the following comments about the team; “The boys proved themselves time and again, in several must-win situations and often without substitutes. I’m extremely proud of their effort and heart ... It’s impossible to single out any player for special recognition because they all were equal in their contributions to the great season. I am very happy for these kids.”

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
