Dunn earns MHC water polo honors

Hood River Valley High School senior Connor Dunn picked up Mt. Hood Conference All-League second team honors for his role this fall on the HRVHS water polo team’s first varsity season.

The first and second teams are each comprised of seven players voted by the conference coaches as the best in the league. Water polo teams in the Mt. Hood Conference include five 6A schools (Reynolds, Sam Barlow, David Douglas, Gresham, and Centennial) and three 5A schools (Parkrose, Sandy, and Hood River). Additionally, junior Stan Ocheskey, sophomores Myles Cameron, Arthur Finstad, and Russel Grim and freshman Adam Cameron were named All-League honorable mention players.

Coach Dave Cameron commented, “We’re incredibly proud of Connor. He put in a consistently strong performance throughout the season, and it’s great that the coaches of the other teams took notice. We’re also really excited about Hood River’s prospects for next year, given that the majority of the All-League Team players are graduating seniors and almost all of our varsity players will be returning next year.”

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
