‘Requiem’ author visits July 5

Waucoma Bookstore is hosting Oregon author Ken Scholes for an author reception on Friday, July 5, from 5-8 p.m. at the bookstore, 212 Oak St., Hood River. Scholes will be signing “Requiem,” the fourth book in the Psalms of Issak, a science-fiction/fantasy series. Other books in the series include “Lamentation,” “Canticle” and “Antiphon.” Scholes lives near Portland with his wife and family.

Who is the Crimson Empress, and what does her conquest of the Named Lands really mean? Who holds the keys to the Moon Wizard’s Tower?

The plots within plots are expanding as the characters seek their way out of the maze of intrigue. The world is expanding as they discover lands beyond their previous carefully controlled knowledge. Hidden truths reveal even deeper truths, and nothing is as it seemed to be.

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
