Learn about ADHD at free class Sept. 25

Swindells Resource Center of the Columbia Gorge is offering a free class, “ADHD: What families need to know,” Wednesday, Sept. 25, from 6-9 p.m. at Columbia Gorge Community College’s third floor lecture hall in Building 2 at The Dalles campus.

The class will be led by Aaron Tabacco, a neurodevelopmental nurse specialist, training coordinator of nursing, and researcher with expertise in family management of childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center at Oregon Health and Science University.

Tabacco is driven in part by his personal experiences as a father of adolescent sons who each live with ADHD. His presentation will include:

  • n The biological origins, treatment options and social difficulties of ADHD
  • n ADHD as a difference in executive functioning
  • n Parenting and advocating for your child with ADHD

This workshop is free thanks to the generosity of Swindell’s donors and partners. For a certificate of attendance, there is a $25 fee, and the certificate can be purchased at the workshop by cash or check.

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
