Swim team moves to key training after duals with St. Mary’s, Molalla

Hood River Valley High School swim team hosted St. Mary’s and Molalla Thursday in the last contest of 2012 for the Eagles.

The girls squad split results; with a solid win against Molalla and a close loss to St. Mary’s. The HRV boys dominated Molalla with first-place finishes in every event; St. Mary’s doesn’t have a boys team.

The Eagles now move to their crucial winter break training period before returning to competition Jan. 5 at Hermiston.

“We’re pretty happy with how the team is progressing so far,” said coach Keith Ebbert. “I’m seeing a lot of techinque improvement, which is by far the most important aspect of the sport.

“Christmas break is a critical time for our training. It’s a time when our training gets substantially more difficult. After that we move into a really busy schedule with competitions every weekend in January and districts in early February.”

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
