Scholarship application time

March 12, 2011

The Columbia River Fellowship for Peace is offering scholarships to local high school seniors at Hood River Valley High School and Columbia High School in White Salmon.

The scholarship has been renamed in honor of CRFP youth member, the late Susanna Blake Gabay of Mosier. Susanna was the recipient of the first CRFP Youth Activist Award for her peace and justice actions throughout her young 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
