HRV XC posting fast times

High school cross country runners tested their early season limits over the last week at two away meets. The first, the Wilsonville Night Meet on Aug. 31, was a 3,000-meter race against many of the top schools in the state. The team then traveled Wednesday to Centennial High School for the Mount Hood Conference Relays, where teams of four ran 1,600-meter relay legs for personal and team records.

Below are highlights from both meets.

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
