In any given week, Hood River News’ photo files bulge with images unseen or shrouded in recent time. Taking a tour, through our digital folders we were reacquainted with some stories and topics that perhaps received less attention than they deserved. Other images give us a small look back at events forgotten despite occurring only a few weeks ago. Still others provide updates to projects in our midst. As fall spins steadily toward winter, here are a few reminders of what was a busy and beautiful summer, with harbingers of changes to come. — Kirby Neumann-Rea

MUCH OF the bond-supported remodeling and expansion work at Wy’east Middle School will continue into 2018, but major changes were completed by Labor Day at the Odell campus. The east parking and vehicle access area was revised, with a separate bus loading zone. Stumps and other material are removed in early June.

Also at Wy'east, the extended canopy is the main feature of the updated main entrance to the school.
