The fourth-annual Grominator skateboarding contest brought 32 kids to the Hood River Skate Park Saturday for what turned out to be the nicest, and driest, day in the last few weeks. Parents, volunteers and sponsors helped make the grassroots event a success. A variety of contests were held in the morning, such as highest ollie, kickflips, longest manual and best trick, and the afternoon hours were occupied by the bowl jam (see results below).

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
