Lee was a Navy SEAL killed in Iraq in 2006 while helping save a soldier wounded on a rooftop by a sniper. He was awarded the Bronze Star with Valor for heroism, the Purple Heart and the Combat Action Ribbon for his actions in the battle.

Goetz, an Army chaplain serving in Afghanistan, was killed in 2010 while helping fellow soldiers whose Humvee was hit by an IED. He and four other soldiers were killed by an improvised bomb.

The third-annual tournament is scheduled for July 12 next year at Hood River Golf Course.

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
