Musical horizons opened Thursday at Hood River Middle School auditorium, with a visit by the N'chi Wanapum Canoe Family from the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Tribe. Jared Little Eagle, 1, plays his drum while and Jasmine Lopez, left, and Alexia Edwards sing during the song and dance performance for about 400 students, including all eighth graders and fourth-grade classes from Westside and May Street Elementary Schools. Many students got to learn native dances as part of the program. The N'chi Wanapum visit was paid for by a grant from “Gifts from Our Ancestors: The Celilo Arts Education Program”, part of the ongoing multi-cultural Confluence Project.

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
