With a low gross of 60, the four-person team of Josh Halemeier, Justin Kahut, Stephen Stenberg and Rachel Stenberg finished as winners of the second-annual Dale Goetz/Marc Lee Memorial Golf Tournament last weekend at Hood River Golf Course. The four beat out five other teams in the tournament held to honor two Hood River residents who were killed in action in 2006 and 2010 serving the United States military in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The trio of Tom Yates, Michael Stenberg and Oscar Stenberg finished just a few strokes off, with a gross of 66, to claim second place in the six-team tournament. Complete results are as follows:
First — Low gross of 60: Josh Halemeier, Justin Kahut, Stephen Stenberg, Rachel Stenberg
Second — 63: Tom Yates, Michael Stenberg, Oscar Stenberg
Third — 66: George Fort, George Young, Dr. Paul Armerding
Fourth — 70: Kirby Carter, Austin Requa, Alex Tran, Scott Halliday
Fifth — 72: Nate Boyden, Jake Johnson, Adam Ohlson

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
