Water runs through our valley like blood through veins. Addicted? Set your calendars for Wildwaters, 7 p.m. Feb. 16 at Columbia Center for the Arts. The film, by Anson Fogel and Doug Ammons, explores the art of paddling, the sheer beauty of rivers, and how they change the peple who experience them. See www.columbiaarts.org for more.

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
