Engineer Jason Wilkins of Hood River Fire and EMS accepts a donation from a motorist during the Aug. 5 “Fill the Boot” campaign at 13th and Cascade streets. As members of the department do every year, six Hood River fire personnel took turns standing next to, or in traffic, brandishing boots all for a good cause: to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Lieut. Manuel Irusta said the effort was a success, with $5,500 raised in the eight-hour period.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
