Robotics volunteers needed

Help is needed hosting the upcoming robotics tournaments in Hood River on Dec. 14-15 for students age 9-14 and on Jan. 11 for older students.

No experience is necessary “and you do not need to be a technology geek,” said HRVHS robotics advisor Jeff Blackman.

Each event requires between 35-60 volunteers.

“These are great events for the students; think of it as sports for the brain,” Blackman said.

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
