Explore the history of Timberline Lodge
Seventy-five years ago, in the throes of the Great Depression, Timberline Lodge was constructed high on the south slopes of Mt. Hood through President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration (WPA). The lodge provided work for hundreds of Oregonian laborers, craftsmen, and artisans. Today, Timberline has a firm respect for its tradition, yet a forward leaning sense of innovation. Learn about the lodge’s historical significance has how it has been preserved as it continues to offer recreation for twenty-first-century visitors.
Join the Columbia Gorge Earth Center on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at Springhouse Cellar in welcoming Timberline’s director of public affairs Jon Tullis to share the history of this Oregon landmark. Doors open at 6 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
