What in the World: FAA Halts Flights to Israel, Wawona Recalls Fruits, EPA Mis-Tweets | Bent

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Planning a poorly timed visit to Israel? The Federal Aviation Administration went ahead and cancelled that for you. The FAA has banned U.S. airlines from flying into Tel Aviv for at least 24 hours after a rocket strike landed about a mile from the airport this morning. (CNN)

BAD FRUIT: If you recently purchased fresh peaches, nectarines, plums or pluots from Costco, Trader Joe's, or Walmart recently, you're going to want to toss or return them.  California-based Wawona packaging has issued a nationwide recall following the detection of listeria in some of its fruits packaged and shipped from June 1 to July 12. Frozen fruits are, apparently, not affected. (ABC News)

TWOOPS: The Environmental Protection Agency has apologized after it "accidentally" sent out a tweet promoting a Kim Kardashian iPhone game reading: "I'm now a C-list celebrity in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Come join me and become famous too by playing on iPhone!" The upside, for a brief moment, a whole new segment of the population cared about the EPA. (NY Daily News)
