It’s time for spring cleaning and to start collecting your yard sale items for the Mount Hood Town Hall.

The Town Hall’s annual Community Yard Sale fundraiser will be held this year on Saturday, July 19, and your donated items are needed to make this event a success.

Drop-off dates for items are being scheduled and will be posted here in this column soon.

If you have a lot of items or larger items that require pickup, contact Nikki Stansel at 541-645-0391.


If you’ve driven past the Mt. Hood Town Hall lately you’ve probably noticed something is missing in front.

The former playground has now been dismantled and the groundwork is underway for the new playground projected to be finished by early June 2014, just in time for summer!

Extra helping hands from the community are needed and appreciated to help get the new playground put together, so if you would like to help, contact Nikki Stansel at 541-645-0391.

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
