Openings are still available at the annual Bravissimo music camp, June 20-24, for children in grades 3-5. This is the first, and possibly the only, year that Bravissimo has been geared toward younger kids, according to Mark Steighner, who will be teaching at the camp along with Kathy Hannen-Smith.
It was originally created as a musical enrichment program for middle school and high school students. This year, because of the cutbacks in the music program in elementary schools, the camp was reworked to fill that void. Special guest presenters will include Karin Tauscher, who teaches African marimba.
The deadline for registration is May 27; tuition is $55 and there are a limited number of partial scholarships available to those who qualify for free and reduced-fee school lunches.
The tuition includes all materials, snacks and a recorder. The camp will run Monday through Friday, June 20-24, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Call Community Education, 386-2055, to register.

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
