Time for Panorama

News staff writer

February 15, 2006

Hood River News is planning the 2006 Panorama special section, as part of the April 12 edition.

This year we ask the community’s responses for two features:

* What would you write about the Gorge on a postcard to a loved one, in 50 words or less? Also, add what would be on the picture side.

(Please note: no advertisements, and entries are subject to editing.)

Send entries, with name, hometown, and daytime phone number to: “Panorama Postcards,” P.O. Box 390, Hood River, or e-mail them to: hrnews@eaglenewspapers.com

* “My Favorite Photo of the Gorge” returns: Bring us a quality resolution print or digital image (dpi 300-500, five-by-seven inches).

E-mail images to cknight@eaglenewspapers.com, or mail them to Christian Knight, P.O. Box 390, Hood River.

Add a brief description of the image and what went into capturing it.

Deadline for both is March 8.

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
