Kyle Beam signs with CU

Hood River Valley High School senior Kyle Beam has signed a letter of intent to play for the Campbellsville University Tigers in Campbellsville, Ky., in 2013. Beam has been a three-year starter for head coach Erich Harjo as a catcher. In 2012 he was selected as a 5A 1st team All-State player.

Harjo says, “Kyle is a well-rounded individual that came across a great opportunity to take his talent to Kentucky. He had offers from a variety of schools up and down the I-5 corridor, but chose the school that he felt would give him the best of both worlds (school and baseball). We know he’s going to do great things there just like he has at HRV. We’re very proud of him.”

This fall Beam also had a solid senior season on the football field as a defensive back and receiver.

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
