Immanuel hosts Martin Luther portrayal Oct. 27

Immanuel Lutheran Church will host “Martin: a Life of Martin Luther,” a live and original one-man portrayal written and performed by actor Allan Lemke. The community is invited, at 3 p.m. Oct. 27. The church is located at 9th and State streets.

“Martin” recounts the life of Martin Luther, the great reformer of the church in the 1500s. A & E, Time and Life all ranked Martin Luther the third most influential person of the previous millennium.

The one-man portrayal runs approximately one hour and ten minutes including a 10-minute intermission. “Martin” has been performed to wide acceptance in churches in 23 states nationwide. A pastor commented, “What I liked about it was that I seemed to see Luther up there, not Allan Lemke.”

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
