The History Museum hosts Holiday Open House Dec. 28

After a two-year hiatus, The History Museum’s Holiday Open House is back, Saturday, Dec. 28, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. The community and visitors are invited to spend a cozy day at the museum with friends and family, enjoying refreshments, listening to music, playing games and discovering history.

The museum will provide hot drinks, family-friendly activities and live music, in addition to its regular exhibits and kid-friendly opportunities in the Exploration Space.

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
