Week of the Young Child is April 10-16, a time to recognize the needs of young children and thank the adults involved in their education and care. Youngsters, parents and caregivers from Mid Columbia Children's Council and its programs paraded on Oak Street Thursday. (The rain just added to the fun.) The children will parade again Friday at 11 a.m. in downtown Hood River.

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
