Coming soon: Discover Bicycles owner Kirt Buddendeck cruises around the thrid floor of his downtown Hood River shop where a professionally-designed pumptrack will soon be built. A fundraiser to help buy materials for the track will be held Thursday at the Skylight Theater. $20 donation buys entrance to two movies and 10 raffle tickets good for a variety of cool prizes (including a bike lik the one pictured). Showtimes are 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

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
