Anderson at CEBU Lounge

Saturday, Dec. 22: Casey Anderson Quartet, 9:30 p.m. — Low-down, dirty jazz-funk. Former Gorge denizen Casey Anderson returns to Cebu with his newest project. From Thelonious Monk to Wayne Shorter, this quartet takes inspiration from all jazz facets. Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 E. Marina Way; 541-386-2200.

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
