Julie Cline named law firm partner

The Hood River law firm of Phillips Reynier and Sumerfield announced that Julie L. Cline became a partner with the firm effective Jan. 1 and the firm name will be changed to Phillips Reynier Sumerfield and Cline. She joins Deborah Phillips, Ron Reynier and Bill Sumerfield.

Born in Chicago, Cline obtained her bachelor's degree in chemistry in 1993 from the University of Kansas and a master's degree in social work from Arizona State University in 2002. She obtained her Doctor of Jurisprudence degree in 2005 from the University of Oregon where she was recognized as Order of the Coif.

Following law school, she clerked for the Honorable Darleen Ortega at the Oregon Court of Appeals for two years before joining Phillips et al as an associate in September 2007.

Since joining the firm, Cline built on her broad base of knowledge gained at the Court of Appeals by applying that knowledge in the courtroom, and developing her expertise as a trial attorney. She has handled a wide range of cases including extensive experience in family law.

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
