DUII patrols increase

This holiday season, the Oregon State Police, Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association and Oregon Association Chiefs of Police urge everyone to support their enforcement efforts and show zero tolerance for drunk and drugged driving.

Throughout December, law enforcement agencies around the country are stepping up enforcement efforts to help save lives on the roads. Local law enforcement efforts continue through Jan. 1.

The Hood River Sheriff and Police Department both have grant funding this holiday season to pay for increased DUII enforcement.

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
