Community members are invited to join in the study and exploration of a new, challenging and provocative book: “Occupy the Bible: What Jesus Really Said (and did) about Money and Power.”
The series will take place in Hood River at Riverside Community Church on Sunday mornings from 9-10:15 a.m., beginning March 3.
The book, written by Rev. Dr. Susan Thistlethwaite, provides an eye-opening exploration of many of the foundational Christian scriptures. It also serves as a how-to guide for those who seek to follow in the ways of Jesus in times of growing poverty and economic inequality.
For more information contact Rev. Vicky Stifter at 541-386-1412.

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
