The third-annual Charley LaVenture Trail Day will be from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday on Charley’s Trail (off Riordan Hill Road, first right after Family Man). The day’s activities (rain or shine) will include a work party to repair part of the trail and a group ride. The trail was created in memory of longtime Hood River resident Charley LaVenture, who passed away in October 2009.

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
