‘Hawks Madness’ Nov. 16
Horizon Christian School is hosting 2012 Hawks Basketball Madness on Friday, Nov. 16, at the school gymnasium.
Admission to the event is free. The first 100 spectators who bring two cans of food — as a donation to the local FISH food bank — will receive a commemorative T-shirt.
The event begins at 7 p.m. and the schedule includes: short scrimmage games by the high school varsity teams, including the Hawks’ boys team which won last year’s Class 1A state championship; mini games involving local grade school players; and three-point and other shooting contests for fans and players.
For information call the school at 541-387-3200.

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
