Library offers free e-reader classes
Did you get a shiny new Nook, Kindle, Kobo or iPad as a gift? Are you wondering what the big deal is about e-books? Have you heard that you can download e-books to your phone or tablet and want to know how?
No matter your interest, you’ll want to come to a free class on e-books and e-readers with the Hood River County Library District. Two classes will be held: Saturday, Jan. 18, at 11 a.m. and Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m., both at Hood River Library.
The classes will explain about e-books, where you can get them, the devices on which you can read them, and more. It will also discuss how you can check out free e-books through the Library District’s Library2Go downloadable media service or buy them from Waucoma Bookstore’s e-book store.

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
