Gorge White House opens April 1

The Gorge White House, a 100-year-old landmark alongside Highway 35 south of Hood River, opens for 2011 on April 1.

The Hood River Valley icon, now a popular destination for tasting Gorge wines and brews, also sells art, fresh fruit and flowers, gourmet food products, gifts, and much more, all in the midst of orchards and gardens.

The Gorge White House will be open through Oct. 31. Admission and parking are free.

Full Sail adds LTD 05 Amber Lager

LTD 05, the latest seasonal brew from Full Sail, is now on grocery shelves.

"We brewed this beer as a celebration of lagers, and like the other beers in our LTD series, it allows us to explore a classic lager profile and intertwine our own passion as an American craft brewer," said Full Sail's executive brewmaster.

LTD 05, exploring its Viennese roots, is described as "a copper-colored beer with great harmony that is refreshingly round and smooth, balanced with a hint of dark roast that enhances its floral hoppy finish."

(Following LTD 05, Full Sail will re-release LTD 03, a crisp pilsner just in time for summer.)

LTD 05 registers "medium" on the "Malt-O-Meter" that is featured on the six-packs. Beer aficionados, or the aspiring ones, will enjoy the bottom of the six-pack that features an easy-to-read chart of "Today's Recipe," including Willamette, Glacier and Czech Saaz Hops, Pale, Chocolate and Caramel malts, Plato (14 degrees), IBU (28), alcohol by volume ABV (5.6%) and any special ingredients.

LTD 05 will be available in six-packs and draught from March to June.

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
