CSRT names standout racers

Cooper Spur Race Team competed in the recent U12 championships at Mt. Hood Meadows, where the best young racers in Oregon raced slalom and giant slalom while battling challenging conditions, rain and snow.

CSRT’s 12-person team was led in results by four-tear team member Josh Nardone, who established himself as the fastest 11-year-old in Oregon by finishing first in the both events. On the girl side, Francise Melby was second in slalom, Annika Howell was seventh, Kathy Kaimaktchiev was 10th and Annie Hendrickson was 13th. Sarah Davies (9) was the only U10 on the team to make the top 15, finishing in 15th place in the slalom.

Members of the team compete this weekend in the Buddy Werner Championships at Crystal Mountain, which brings together the best U14 skiers in Oregon, Washington and Idaho.

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
