Duckwall Golf Classic raises $3,500 for youth facility

August 10, 2005

The second Annual Dick Duckwall Golf Classic, held Saturday at the Hood River Golf and Country Club, raised almost $3,500 for the Hood River Alliance Church’s (HRAC) youth program. Through generous hole sponsors, local businesses and the participation of 56 golfers, the HRAC took another step closer to their goal of seeing a youth facility built in Hood River.

“It was a wonderful success,” said organizer Therese Franger. “While we reach for that goal (of the youth center) we will continue to mentor kids and see that they learn the important skills of dealing with real life issues while instilling them with hope for their future and a passion for living a productive life.”

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
