River of Life Assembly is launching a new book, “Voices from the Valley,” Nov. 11 in its 10:30 a.m. service.
Join six real people from the Hood River Valley as they emerge from pain and despair to lives they never dreamed they could have.
The theme of the book is: When life has us in the valley, it’s hard to look up at the mountaintop and believe we will ever reach its peak again. Challenges seem to keep us down, sap our strength and leave us in despair. But though we may be knocked down, we don’t have to stay down.
River of Life Assembly is located at 979 Tucker Road, Hood River.
The community is welcome to attend.

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
