‘Bailey’s Decision’

Mosier writer’s story published in ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ book

A story by Mosier resident Tracie Hornung appears in a new book in a national self-help book series published this month.

Hornung’s true story, “Bailey’s Decision,” has been published in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: I Can’t Believe My Cat Did That!” The story is based on her funny experience adopting cats at an animal shelter.

Hornung is a freelance writer, as well as a former reporter and public relations specialist. She has been published in numerous periodicals and has won awards in technical writing and journalism. She currently writes the blog Animals of the Gorge and is a volunteer for CatLink and Columbia Gorge Cat Rescue. Her website can be found at thcommunications.net.

“It’s a delight to have my story published in ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul,’ Hornung said. “I hope it helps reiterate the message that many terrific pets are available at animal shelters.”

The first “Chicken Soup for the Soul” was published in 1993. Since then more than 112 million books have been sold in the U.S. and Canada, and 280 titles, translated into more than 40 languages, are in print.

“Chicken Soup for the Soul: I Can’t Believe My Cat Did That!” is available at independent bookstores and online booksellers.

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
