The ASPIRE program at Hood River Valley High School is seeking volunteers to help encourage all students to further their education.
ASPIRE (Access to Student Assistance Programs in Reach of Everyone) trains and matches volunteers with students to research, identify colleges or technical schools, and locate scholarship opportunities.
ASPIRE coordinator Lisa Roberts will lead a training on Oct. 1, at 7 p.m. in the HRVHS computer lab. This training will teach volunteers how to use the Oregon Career Information System and Naviance to assist students in their quest to further education.
To sign up or learn about other ASPIRE training opportunities, contact Roberts in the SUMMIT Center at the high school at 541-387-5034, ext. 3.

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
